More of The Songbird's Secret

Good day!!  Today I wanted to share a pretty vintage card I made using one of Pion's recent collections called "The Songbird's Secret".  Aren't the laces pretty?  Lace Amelia - Ooooooo even a pretty name!!

Here I've used some ivory colored Foamiran and colored the edges, heated with an iron and shaped some die cut pieces with the Rosy Owl "Flower Dies 2" set.  I just love these big leaves too and you can make them a little smaller just by leaving them on the iron a little bit longer but don't leave it too long because I found they toughen up and then you can't shape them.  That's fine too if you like the shape that's created by the iron alone.  

This nice little birdcage is on sale right now!!  Go scoop yours up before they're all gone.  I just like the size of them and sometimes when I feel like I have a bit of a space left, it's perfect!!  

On the "Memory Notes" 12 x 12 paper there are some tags but also this cute little "Moments" sentiment and a few more.  Here I've cut the Foamiran with the Rosy Owl "Trailing Leaves" die but then while it was heated, I pressed in one of the moulds (see below) to get an imprint for the leaf.  It's subtle but I think that's all a person needs.

Thank you so much for stopping by!!
Have a great weekend and I'll be back next week!
 I hope you are too!  :)

LDRS Candybean Sweet Sugar Cube.

Good morning.

I hope you are all having a lovely week.

I am sharing with you today a card for Noor Design UK using the LDRS Candybean "Sweet Sugar Cube" .

The image has been coloured using Distress Markers and Re Inkers.
The patterned papers are from Maja Designs Sofiera Collection and the plain pink is from Maja Designs Mono Collection.

Chiffon Lace and Pearl has been added across the bottom.

I cut out the Banner Die twice and layers them across the top. These are so pretty - I love the different patterns on each flag.

Underneath the flower display on the left and to the top right I have added the Barbed Wire Die from Fantasy Stamps. The large mat for the image is also from Fantasy Stamp. If you were ever looking for pretty dies which cut like a dream - these are the ones you need.

The cute button on the right is by Lemoncraft.
You can find a link to all the flowers and products used in the links at the bottom of this post.

Thank you all for stopping by today and for you lovely comments.

I hope you enjoy the rest of your week. Not long now till we get a long weekend.

See you soon.

Pion Design With Love

Hello everyone how are you all?
I was hoping you to show you a project this week with in depth photo's or maybe even a video of the making or part of. However my daughter got took into hospital & although she is home now she is still very poorly. Also my eldest son & family moved at the weekend so I was looking after my grandchildren as well as my poorly Natalie & well there are not enough hours in the day.

So I will show you that next week as I'm really looking forward to doing it. Today though I have some shabby chic for you......oh my I love shabby chic........I would have it everywhere........even hubster would get the shabby chic treatment if I could get away with it lol.
I used the oh so pretty Pion Design 'My Dearest Sofia' papers, I went with blues for this one with just hints of pink in the background.
I have also used bits from the Crafteezee Collection No.9 which I think was March Elegant collection......but I'm not certain :-(
The 2 hearts in this photo are from the Crafteezee collection, the lace heart is lace & you get a long length of it but I just cut 1 heart may end up seeing these lots lol
The small metal heart I added Ivory Fran-Tage embossing powder to it but before I heated it with my heat gun I rubbed off little bits here & there so a bit of bronze would still peek through.
I also cut out 2 doilies, 1 in white card using a Fantasy die & the other from Pion paper with a Marianne die...........these are 2 of my favourite dies........amongst many others lol.

This little wooden peg with a heart on was also from the crafteezee collection....I added white gesso to the wooden peg & then stamped a postage stamp on the half of the heart.......its not showing up very good in this picture. I stamped onto paper first to get a lot of the ink off as I wanted it light.

I love the metal leaves but sometimes I think they dont really go with my I added Fran-tage embossing powder to both sides & heated them with my heat careful & use tweezers as they get very hot with being metal.
Now I absolutely LOVE them & will be buying lots & giveing them the fran-tage treatment lol.
For these I used Ivory Fran-Tage to match the smaller metal heart in the previous photo.
I used some gorgeous flowers & I used quite a few different leaves. I used the metal ones & I used 2 different Rosy Owl Leaf dies & I also used Tim Holtz Holiday Greens.......I think a couple of the dies in this set you can get away with all year round. The Tim Holtz ones I cut with the blue 12x12 Pion Sheet, Rosy Owl was cut with the green 12x12 pion sheet & the maja design sheet & also white cardstock..... I also added some heat treated organza ribbon in there as well.

I added cheesecloth between the first & second layer & I also added 2 different laces. I distressed all my edges with a Tim Holtz tool.

Well thats it from me dont forget about our current challenge which is 'Add Lace' here.

Thanks so so much for stopping by it means a lot to us.
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx
