Happy Having Fun Layout for ***49 and Market***

Goodmorning everyone,
I am so much in love with the pretty vintage shades flower range that I just can't get enough creating with it. This time I made a layout using a picture from our son Kevin seven years ago when we were on our vacation in Spain. I have to say I really enjoy to combine the amazing "Vintage Artistry" collection with all the other collections because I really like the neutral feel it has. This time I added the new "Scents of Nature"at the bottom part of my layout. Then I stamped randomly with several stamp sets to later on add some crackle paste on my layout.

Happy Having Fun: 
Lately I am a little more making soft tones layouts as well as cards and 49 and Market is making that very easy to do. After stamping I added two stencils with paste and later on I sprayed with three sprays by Lindy's! With my last DT box I got some of the amazing rustic flowers they are so gorgeous.

All the chipboard pieces are gessod and treated with embossing powders, some of them are treated with stamps and rust paste. In my flower clusters I used cheesecloth and some other stuff that I can't remember the name off sorry. Di used it before ;-) I also added some prills on my layout mostly between the fish net.

I also added some natural elements which I got at the Euro store such as shells, twigs and little balls {not sure what they are hihih}. To finish my layout I added some gesso and twinkling spray on my flower clusters.

49 and Market products used: 

Other products used: Dusty Attic chipboard pieces, Stencils, Paste, Lindy's Stamps Gang sprays and embossing powders, Stamps, Mica Powders, Cheese cloth, Gesso, Ink.

Thank you so much for your visit today I hope you enjoyed my post and are inspired by it to use your 49 and Market goodies as well.... have a lovely week.

For this blog hop I made a card using some amazing new 49 and Market papers called "Scents of Nature" & "Looking Through"! That cute little fairy sitting on my card is from the Looking Through collection. These papers are from such a high quality that once you worked with them you are in love I can tell you that. The pretty Cheery Lynn Designs IOE Embossing Folders & Dies are a perfect match for these papers.

True Love:
For this card I used the soft tones in light blue and the darker blue in the Scents of Nature collection also I added some light green papers to match the fairy her wings. This particular embossing folder is such a beauty that I really enjoyed working with it.
I used the outer side of one of the older IOE embossing folders & plates with the dots which I really love. I cut it out and layered it on top of the other IOE folder to get more dimension. So much layers added on my card.

Hello Card for ***Cheery Lynn Designs***

Good morning everyone.
Today I have a easy card with you to share.  On this card I played with just three dies and a bunch of mixed media sprays. I really love to use all the mixed media there is in this industry and what better way to use it together with my lovely dies by "Cheery Lynn Designs"!


For my card I just used white cards stock on top of that I cut out just a smaller piece of white card stock. Then I sprayed some colors on that piece of paper followed by just water to let it blend a little then I dried it with tissues.

Then I cut out my dies and I used some gorgeous papers by 49 and Market to complete my card. At the end I added some dewdrops and some shimmer spray.

Together we Smile Layout February SOE Watercolor Wishes Kit for ***Scraps of Elegance***

Goodmorning lovelies, 
Today it's my birthday and I would like to share a 12 by 12 layout using the amazing wonderful February "Watercolor Wishes" kit at Scraps of Elegance. This is a gorgeous kit with all pretty 49 and Market goodies in it but also some pretty metal pieces and other stunning embellishments this is just a must have kit. 

Together we Smile: 
The picture I used is of my precious cousin her daughters Nadene and Hanna and I really love this picture of them {it's so sweet}. I really got inspired to use this picture because of the lovely haute couture stamp set by Gabrielle Pollacco that was also in this kit. 

I also used some sticker words that I had in my stash but you can also print words or text on a pieces of patterned paper and just print it out that works fine for me on most layouts. The chipboard piece I used here is treated with rust paste by Finnabair and it was cut in two. 

 Those glass stones that are in this kit are just the bomb wow I really enjoyed using them on this particular layout. The pretty metal bird you see at the bottom picture is by Prima Marketing and is so adorable. I used the pretty stencil in the kit on different parts of my layout and also I added a bunch of Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays on this piece. 

This main kit is still available at the Scraps of Darkness/Elegance Store so it you would like it please be quick because it's amazing. Just take a good look at all these yummy products below. 

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today and have a wonderful week...

Timeless Photograph 8x8 Layout for ***Cheery Lynn Designs*** + Playing at Lindy's Stamp Gang's March Challenge

Goodmorning lovelies, 
Today I'd like to show you how I used my precious "Cheery Lynn Designs"dies. 
This time I made a 8x8 layout again {it's been ages since I did one for Cheery Lynn Designs} using a old picture of my mother in law, she is in her seventies now and on the picture she was just four years old such a cutie pie...
I ordered some foam from England last week because I saw some lovely flowers made out of them on YouTube...and I have to say I LOVE that stuff I am hooked now lol

Timeless Photograph:   
I cut out the flower dies times four then I used my heat gun to curl my flowers. This layout came out so easily. For the flower centers I used some steamen and a diamond gem on top of that. These papers I used are from such a thick quality that it's really easy to distress it. 

In some of the dies I left the cut out bits and pieces because I really think shabby chic is all about that The word stickers are inked with white ink and I added a treat underneath the picture. In my flower clusters I added some cheesecloth.

  I really adore how much depth the flowers have with the foam & dies I used wow. I am totally going to make more flowers with my Cheery Lynn Designs flower dies on my next projects so keep a close eye on this amazing blog.

Cheery Lynn Design dies used: 

Other products used: 49 and Market papers & stamps, Paste, Dusty Attic stencil, foam to make the flowers, Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays, word stickers, cheesecloth, treat, steamen, prills, diamond gems, gesso and ink.
With this layout I will be entering this months color challenge at the "Lindy's Stamp Gang" blog! I was inspired by the beautiful colors and those gorgeous roses on that amazing cake.

Lindy's Stamp Gang products used:
Cocklebells Coral
Clam Bake Beige
