Two sneak peeks

Today I have two sneak peeks for you, the first one is one of the new Christmas stamps from the Lili of the Valley release that is going on sale tomorrow.

This stamp is called Mary and Joseph. I used Craft Creations gingham paper cos it puts me in mind of the tea-towels these little darlings would be wearing on their heads. Now is this just an adorable image or what, makes my lil old cynical heart melt right into a puddle lol.

The snowflakes are a combination of a Martha Stewart snowflake punch and Spellbinders Create a Flake 1. I have coated the aqua snowflakes with Twinklets (Love this stuff) and popped a spacer and pearl brad in the centre of each. Here’s a closer look

I have used the delish 25mm organza ribbon from Wild Orchid Crafts, couldn’t believe how well it matched with the rest of the card.

I’ve coloured the image with Copics (I was in a rush to get this done so didn’t make a note of the colours I used, sorry.

My next sneak peek is for a new release of 12 stamps (2 x sets of 6) from Crafters Companion – the range is called SWALK. They are being released on Create & Craft and will be shown on Friday 16th 11am, Sunday 18th 10am and 2pm, Monday 19th 8am and Tuesday 20th 8am.

I have used Little Princess and coloured her with distress inks. Isn’t she just so sweet, love those doe eyes lol. The paper is off the accompanying CD, the papers on this CD are amazing and definitely geared towards us stampers. Lots of ginghams, dots, stripes, swirls, etc and a gorgeous soft, muted palette of colours too.

There is only one picture to share as I had to get my samples off in the mail and the others I took of this card aren’t very good – the batteries were running flat on the camera and it wasn’t playing grrr. The Stickles is not showing up very well here either :(
