LLC May Challenge: Blossoms and/or Butterflies

Long time no see… I’m making yet another sporadic appearance here on my blog, LOL. 1st of May today which of course means a new Live & Love Crafts Challenge,and this month’s theme is Blossoms and/or Butterflies. So couldn’t be easier really. :-)

Wild horses couldn’t drag me away from using Maja Design’s newest collection, Vintage Romance. OMG: it’s sooooo pretty. I think their most beautiful collection since Sofiero was released back in 2013. Wow; time flies, doesn’t it?!

Here’s my card;blossoms3_miniI’ve layred the card with three different sheets; Falling for you, Passion, and Love Poetry had to be on top as it’s the fairest of them all! As a centre piece, I’ve used one of the gorgeous Wycinanka chipboard frames. This Wuthering 1, which I embossed with shabby pink frantage. The sentiment is from LOTV.

Blue X-mas Cards

Ooops; 5 months have past since my last post! Where does time go, I’d usually ask myself, but this time I actually know. The refurbishment work of the house we moved into in mid August has swallowed soooooooo much of my time. We’re far from done, but we’re getting there, slowly. :-) Anywho; as a consequence, I didn’t create hardly any Christmas cards this year, I think only 2 throughout the whole year, but I did sort of a marathon session the day before Christmas Eve and created four for our new neighbours. :-)All4cards2_miniI finally got to have a play with Pion Design’s new beautiful Christmas Collection, “Glistening Season”. 😀
The main colours are blue and brown; blue being my favourite colours, this collection is of course right up my street!Churchcard_miniI used the beautiful church image from the “Coming Home” sheet…bridgecard_mini…as well as this beautiful bridge image from the “By the River” sheet:closeup_bridgecloseup_church_miniSome close up pics of the bellies;

Shabby Sentiment Card

Yesterday I felt like making something rather shabby, so I ended up with this;88_miniLots of layers, , distressing, cheese cloth, and crackle paint. 😀
The papers are from Maja Design’s Fika and Sofiero collections.906_miniThe gorgeous sentiment stamp is from Stempelglede, the dies from Spellbinders. (The Butterfly die is an old Magnolia doohickey.)
