Luscious Lace at Magnolia-licious & Wee Stamps


Hello, Friends. It is going to be hot here this week; Denver hit a record 99 degrees yesterday which is unusual for early June. And it’s supposed to be like this all week. I don’t mind it if the humidity is low. Otherwise it’s like walking into a shower outside in the middle of the day. 

The Magnolia-licious & Wee Stamps Design Team has a new challenge posted and we hope you'll join us this fortnight with… 

Luscious Lace

You can use paper or fabric, whatever suits your fancy. 

 
My card features “Princess Tilda with Ballet Shoes” from the Once Upon a Time Collection. I went all out with the lace by using it for Tilda’s tutu, her frame and the edge of my card. Tilda is colored with Copics and I used Martha Stewart lace for her skirt. I cut around her hand to bring it forward over her skirt for a dimensional effect. I also gave her skirt a scattering of silver Stickles for a little bling as well as her crown and sleeves. 

 
I used my Old Swedish Lace die cut for her frame and added Marine Blue Frantage for a vintage look. The rhinestones at the corners are from Queen & Co. All of my papers are from Maja Designs matted on Bazzill cardstock, distressed with Pumice Stone Distress ink, machine stitched and torn around the edges. The Lace Coaster die cut is from Magnolia and I cut out the middle to allow the layers to show through. My fabric lace is from WOC and I added Magnolia Swirl die cuts from my designer paper and cardstock. I finished the card with a flower arrangement made with Marianne Designs rolled roses with Frantage and pearls. The rest of the flowers are from Prima, Magnolia and WOC with a few leaves from my Nellie Snellen punch. I added silver Stickles to the Magnolia and WOC roses for more bling. Finally, I made a bow with satin ribbon from JoAnn’s to finish the card. 

 
Here’s a close up of Tilda in her sparkly lace tutu.
 
I'm entering my card in the following challenges:
 
A Creative Romance - Anything Goes
Wild Orchid Crafts - Lots of Layers

Cathy, So stunning!!! So much to look at and take in... Super job with the stitching and the torn edges that looks great. Tilda tutu is so cleaver and it turned out fantastic. Beautiful lace on the right side (all of the elements). Love all the flourishes. Sorry I have not been around.. Everyone is so busy and things have been crazy. I hope things have been well.
Hugs, Patricia
