Joy and Laughter

Hello, sweet friends! Happy New Year! I'm posting today on the Wild Orchid Crafts blog, sharing a sweet little card. I adore WOC purples so much that I couldn't resist making a card to coordinate with my previously posted tag.♥︎
The pastel lilac Cherry Blossoms pair so beautifully with the deeper purple of the English Rose and Gypsophila. The largest flower is the stunning Chelsea Rose, one of my favorite additions to the WOC store last year.♥︎ My papers are from LemonCraft's Violet Silence.
Sweetheart Blossoms (and Minis!) trail up the side, while a sparkly Bead Berry Spray adorns the bottom. Nestled within are the most darling leaves, touched with sweet pink love.♥︎
A heart crowns my Anna Griffin sentiment, as elegant as it is heartfelt.  The pretty frame is from Sue Wilson's Lauren collection, which was a beautiful gift from a sweet friend. All of my flowers have been trimmed in Glitter Paint for sparkle.

Thank you for fluttering on by and I wish you a lovely day!♥︎

Nestled amongst the flowers is a Red Bead Berry Spray, which adds the loveliest textures.♥️The reindeer bauble and snowflake chippies are from Wycinanka.

Birthday Wishes

Hello, sweet friends! I hope you're enjoying a lovely weekend! I'm posting today on the Wild Orchid Crafts blog, sharing a wee bit of birthday inspiration for a dear friend's special day. ♥︎

Speaking of birthdays, I was blessed with some amazing crazy gifts on Friday for mine and I couldn't wait to put some to use!
My focal point is made up of dreamy Sue Wilson dies (Maddie and Lauren), which were part of a gift! I love them so much. My friend loves elegance and sweetness, so I paired beautifully ruffly white blossoms with darling Rose Pink roses. Isn't that a gorgeous shade of pink? ♥︎ It is perfect for my Maja Design papers. The heart paper is from Vintage Baby, while the rest are from Vintage Summer Basics.
I continue to be enamored with the relatively new White Lotus flowers... the abundance of sunshiny yellow nestled in the centers is irresistible. ♥︎ I have nestled it alongside a Chrysanthemum, which has long been one of my all-time favorite WOC blooms. 
For the center detailing, adorable miniature sweetheart blossoms accompany Rose Pink roses, to which I added a tiny trail of pearls. I hope she loves it.

Thank you for fluttering on by and I wish you a beautiful day! ♥︎

Baby Love ♥︎

Hello, sparkly friends! I am in the midst of moving (a happy thing!) but will be checking in very soon! I hope your weekend is as beautiful as your hearts! I'm sharing a sweet little Welcome Baby card on the Wild Orchid Crafts blog today. This is also my contribution for the 10/31 challenge at Deep Ocean, where our theme is Inspired by a Song/Movie!

Is there anything more precious than baby love (and sweet lullabies)? ♥︎
To celebrate the new arrival, I have used several of Wild Orchid Crafts' dreamy blues. The pastel and antique blue blossoms are a favorite of mine (especially for wintry creations). ♥︎ My darling papers are from LemonCraft's Tiny Miracles. Oh how these make my heart dance! The sweetest little baby is tucked within a sparkling Wycinanka chipboard frame. I paired it with a stunning Ornate Lace 3D embossing folder from Crafter's Companion.
For a trio of larger delights, I have paired the new Lotus with a Trellis Rose and a Magnolia. The Mixed Pastel Magnolias collection is truly magnificent. ♥︎ For additional touches of blue, I nestled in Aster Daises, Lilies, and Cherry Blossoms.
My card base was made with Sue Wilson's Ornate Pierced Design in her Noble collection. It is a lovely set! It is trimmed in my favorite polka dot ruffle lace. My sentiment is from My Craft Spot (no longer in business.) 

Thank you for visiting and I wish you a wonderful day! ♥︎

Blossoming Love

Happy October, precious friends! I hope you're having a blessed weekend. I'm excited to tell you that I continue to improve and made this card yesterday with the smallest amount of pain in years. It brings tears to my eyes! Thank you for the endless love you've shown me. :)

I'm posting today on the Wild Orchid Crafts blog, sharing a love card featuring the newest WOC rose: Chelsea! Aren't they stunning? I incorporated two ivory chelsea roses and I am thoroughly enamored with them. ♥︎
The large pink magnolias are from the pastel magnolia set. They are perfectly dreamy and pair beautifully with the chelsea roses. The gorgeous shade of pink also appears in several other flowers, with the sweet cherry blossom being my favorite. ♥︎
Nestled up top is a white Lotus, which is also a recent addition to WOC. The blossoming heart trails downward to miniature sweetheart blossoms and tiny rosebuds. The edges of my flowers are painted in sweet sparkle. ♥︎
My gorgeous papers are from LemonCraft's Just Love Me collection (it's nearly all used up now!), while the pretty chipboard elements are from Wycinanka. The heart die-cut is from Crafter's Companions Love is in the Air set. Thank you for visiting and I wish you a beautiful day! ♥︎

Hugs,
Karen ♥︎

Snowy Christmas

Hello, sweet friends! I hope your week is off to a sparkly start! I'm posting today on the Wild Orchid Crafts blog, sharing a snowy Christmas inspiration.

I used Foamiran for my poinsettia, which has a lovely soft effect; perfect for a peaceful Christmas. :) For a festive pop of red, my poinsettia is centered with a red bead berry spray.♥️
Cascading from either side are babies breath fabric flowers. Their wispiness and pearly elegance make my heart dance! Although the white option is currently out of stock, the pale blue is available and would be stunning for wintry Christmas creations.♥️
I created a ruffly lace snowdrift, lined with my favorite flat-back pearl string, before nestling in a Wycinanka chipboard Christmas tree. Self-adhesive pearls were sprinkled atop.♥️The sentiment is from My Craft Spot (no longer in business), which is cut out with a Spellbinders banner die and trimmed with lace.
Tucked within my floral arrangement are pearl snowflakes and frosted berries. The sparkling iciness of winter is magical.♥️The pretty papers are from Pion Design's The Night Before Christmas.
Thank you for fluttering on by and I wish you a beautiful day. :)♥️
