Live & Love Crafts DT Card

Hi everyone how are you all? Sorry I've been MIA this week its really been one of those weeks. Anyway I'm here today to show you something inspired by a movie, yep thats the theme Sandy set us DT girls over at Live & Love Crafts. Tbh I found this a bit hard as my favourite movies are action movies, especially anything with Jason Statham in them........he's awesome!! I'm not really a girly girl when it comes to movies, I like blood, gore, shooting & just lots of do I make that into a card full of frills & foofiness, you know the way I like them?? Well a little thing called Google, yep I googled lol.
I wanted to make a vintage kinda card, so I picked the image then looked for a movie to fit & this one fit perfectly.........
The movie is called 'P.S. I Love You'. All links to items used are at the bottom. I have used older Pion papers for this, they are from the 'From My Heart' collection so it was kinda perfect for this card. I have inked the edges & machine stitched them all as always.
I added a Canvas Mini Bag, which I also stamped with a Love Heart stamp with a dictionary quote on love.  I then added a tag to go inside & on it I've cut out letters saying 'P.S.' then I have stamped 'Love You' underneath. The inside is blank to add something a bit more personal. The 'Love You' stamp is from LOTV.

Of course I had to add this little lock charm saying 'LOVE' on it, I also added Gesso here & there ;0)

I love this image & thought it would be perfect for wedding or anniversary card. I machine stitched all around it & added a Resin Corner to the bottom right corner. On the top left corner is of course the 'Love key' to the lock charm lol, I also added a bit of corrugated card.

I added a clay heart & just above the clay heart I stamped a Whimsy postage mark onto the paper, its a Paris postage mark............well after all Paris is they say anyway lol, I've never been unfortunately, maybe oneday my prince/hubster will take me away aaaaaahhhhhh......

Ok back to reality. All of these items used on this card except the stamps are from Sandy's fabbylicious store of course.............well where else can you get gorgeous vintage & shabby chic stuff as beautiful as this. This paper collection is discontinued by Pion so once Sandy has sold out they will be gone forever............maybe I should stock up on these as they really are so pretty. So if you want some of these gorgeous papers, pop on over to Live & Love Crafts & get them while you can ;0)

Ok well I better go now. Hope you all have a lovely weekend, enjoy lovelies mmwah
Thank you so much for stopping by, it really does mean a lot to me.
Lotsa hugs Vicky

LOTV Guest Designer

Good morning everyone, well goodmorning from the UK lol. I have to say sorry about the bank hol mix up my darling hubster told me it was a bank hol, it was only when looking at the calender I realised it said Ireland & Scotland next to it :0( It was small writing though so we can forgive him lol.

Ok so did you read my heading...........yesy I'm Guest Designer for LOTV!!! OMG seriously I am totally & utterly thrilled to bits & feel so completely honoured.

So for my first GDT card for LOTV I have made a more simple kinda card. Now Anne told me to stick to my normal kind of style &...........well thats hard because I dont have a particular style, however I have made nothing out of the ordinary & kept everything how I would normally make things.
So here's my first one.......
I have also used 3 sentiments from LOTV, I've used the 'Sentiment Tags' which are my fave & I've made a banner & used 'Handwritten Phrases' sentiment stamps, I lurve these, though tbh I lurve ALL LOTV sentiment stamps!!
The flowers are from LLC, the rolled roses are Kort Og Godt. The middle flower is a WOC flower which I sprayed with florist spray to soften the colour. The leaves are 'Sprawling Ferns' magnolia dies.

Inside has been decorated to compliment the front, its not always decorated the same but mainly its to compliment the front of the card.
The gorgeous papers is Maja Design 'Vintage Spring Basics', I've inked the edges with Pumice Stone & machine stitched as always. 

The gorgeous lace is from LLC which is Maya Road 'Crochet Trim'.  

The super cute image is called 'Fabulous Flower' & I coloured it with Copics.
The doilies & scalloped pearls are from my stash.

Well thats it from me, I hope you like my card for LOTV.

I did get my hair cut off at the hairdressers & was going to get hairlights as well but decided to stay with my dark hair for now as 1 big change was enough for the day. I have to say that I love it & so do the family, I will post a pic once I get one taken. I got an asymetrical haircut so its still long-ish-ish on one side lol.

Ok well tatty bye for now, pop on over to the LOTV Inspirations blog as they are always giving away prizes & they have fantastic inspiration from their super duper talented DT. You will certainly be 'Inspired' ;0)

Thanks for popping by, enjoy the rest of your sunday mmwah.
