Happy Boxing Day everyone, this is a scheduled post and as this goes live I'll be in the middle of Christmas Dinner with my family (my grown up children spent the day with their father, grandfather and my daughter's boyfriend's family down in London yesterday, so I'm having my 'official' Christmas Day today instead).
I'm here with my DT post for Marvelous Magnolia. We're still running our challenges as Anything Goes to make it easier on you during the Christmas Holidays when everyone is so busy and with that in mind our current challenge is running for 3 weeks, this is week 2 so still plenty of time to enter. This is my mid-challenge inspiration and as I don't want to see another Christmas card for a month or so, I decided to make an early start on some Valentine's cards, using Wrapped Heart Tilda and some stunning Pion Design papers. In fact this paper was sooo pretty I tried hard not to over embellish so that you could still see it clearly. I've included links to most products used at the end of this post.
I've stitched all my papers as usual and edged them with Tattered Rose DI.
I paper pieced the wrapping on the heart. Copic colours used are:
Skin: E0000, 000, 00, 11, 93
Hair: E40, 31, 35, 39
Clothes: R00, 11, 12, 14, W0, 1
Flowers and pearls are from The Ribbon Girl.
This paper is all from the same 12 x 12 sheet, it contains 4 of 6 x 6 designs on the same sheet, I used some of 3 designs on this card and still have some left to go towards another card. Isn't it beautiful....I nearly hyperventilated cutting into it lol!
I cut the same shape that Tilda was mounted on for writing a message on the inside and stamped the edge with a Kaisercraft texture stamp, I'm sorry I can't remember what this one is called or where I got it from, I thought it went well with the design on the paper.
Well that's it for me, hope you enjoy your Boxing Day if you're in England, so pop across at some point to look at the rest of the DTs creations, they're absolutely gorgeous, and if you have some time after the Christmas festivities, do join in with our challenge, it's an Anything Goes again, so nice and easy and still 2 weeks to get your entry in!
I'm entering the following challenges:
Take care, hugs :) xx
