Hearts at Deep Ocean Challenge!

Happy Tuesday, sweet friends! I hope you're having a beautiful week. It's time for a fun new challenge at Deep Ocean Challenge and it's a sweet one: Hearts! ♥︎

Love is for all seasons, so rather than a Valentine I made a friendship card to thank a friend for supporting me through this difficult time. You may be surprised to see coloring! After 1.5 years away from coloring due to injury, I have returned to my Copics for Deep Ocean projects and it feels magical. ♥︎
This cutie pie is Lullaby from Wee Stamps by Sylvia Zet. Isn't she the sweetest angel? Sadly my pictures washed out some detailing (I need to work on this!), but Polar White Flower Soft adorns the branch for fluffy snowy fun. Her wings (and the Wild Orchid Crafts flowers) are covered in Glamour Dust for wintry sparkle.

She is surrounded in love via a die from Sue Wilson's Decorative Frames Italian collection. A double dose of love adorns the corner, where the smaller Cheery Lynn heart (Two of Hearts) is topped with friendship in full bloom. The pristine Pure Love crinkle ribbon is from my dear friend Diana of DL.Art.
The Graciellie Design sentiment is from her Angel Wings set, inked with Milled Lavender and nestled in a sparkling Melissa Frances resin frame. Gracie is a sweet friend and I'm thrilled for her digi store re-launch that took place last week. My papers are from Maja Design's Vintage Frost Basics, which are embellished with goodies from Live & Love Crafts, Wild Orchid Crafts, and lace from The Ribbon Girl.

My card base was made with Go Kreate's Large Frame Frilly 10, which is topped with Joy! Crafts Lacy Square Frame. The small snowflakes are from Cheery Lynn. A larger Magnolia snowflake is tucked within the flowers, while Magnolia Heart Flourishes provide extra touches of love.

Be sure to check out my teamies' inspiring creations and I hope you can play along with us. Our amazing sponsor for this challenge is Live & Love Crafts (yay!) who is generously offering a gift certificate to one lucky winner. :o)

Fountain of Love

Hello, sweet friends! I hope you're having a blessed week. Thank you for your continued emails/comments of love and support. I'm posting on the Live & Love Crafts blog today, sharing a sweet Valentine using Pion Design's To my Valentine. I'm still wrapped up in all things lovey-dovey, so I made a card for someone in need of extra love. ♥︎
My fountain of love is a beautiful resin Prima Garden Fountain, which is embossed with Shabby White Frantage and bubbles up with pearly love. Wild Orchid Crafts flowers bloom across it, accented with a sweet sentiment and butterflies from the coordinating Borders sheet.
Marguerite lace, topped with Sunflower Pearl Trim, rest atop the darling miniature heart paper. My Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles card base is made with the new Red II from Pion's heavyweight Palette collection.
Atop a gorgeous Lace Heart Appliqué I have layered a double-bow of seam binding, a sparkly heart key charm, and another sweet Pion butterfly. Mini Heart Crochet Trim lines the top, which is a recent purchase of which I am completely in love. ♥︎ I topped it with pearls because I cannot stop my pearly self.

Thank you for fluttering on by and I wish you a beautiful weekend. :o)

Just for You

Happy Friday, sweet friends! I hope you're having a blessed day. I'm posting on the Live & Love Crafts blog, sharing a wintry creation. One of my favorite aspects of Pion Design papers is that they are timeless. I went back to Pion's older Days of Winter collection, as this beautiful image was calling me.♥︎
The vintage image is from Lilly and Siri, as are the solid pink and purple striped papers. The lovely snowflake paper is from the Silent Night collection, which unfortunately has been discontinued. Sandy still has a few left if you'd like to scoop it up. Ruffly, pearly, and sparkly trims abound.
I made a sweet pair of skates to hang from pearl string and nestled the My Craft Spot sentiment within a Melissa Frances resin frame.  The skates are a cut file from Forever Memories for You, of which I intend to make a large version eventually. The flowers are sprinkled with Glamour Dust, as is the frame. A few more of Sandy's pearl goodies are incorporated throughout, which you'll find listed below. :o)

This will soon be off to another heartbroken mother to remind her that she is dearly loved and never alone. It is merely a card, but I pray it delivers light to her darkened heart.  ♥︎

Dies used: Joy! Crafts Frame & 3 Corners, along with matching Border; Tattered Lace Beloved Borders atop vintage image; Cheery Lynn Designs Snowflakes.

Thank you for visiting and I wish you a beautiful weekend. ♥︎
