TOTALLY GORJUSS GDT AND ANOTHER WHIMSY SNEAK PEEK

I’m still full of busy (although the Magnolia card was made ages ago). First up is another sneak peek from the Whimsy Stamps holiday release that goes on sale tomorrow!! Crissy Armstrong has really designed the most amazing stamps (I’m holding out with my FAVE set of the release till the blog hop tomorrow and I know it’s been a favourite with quite a lot of the girlies). This little cutie is called Starry Night – just love it and it was a doddle to colour too.

The ticket sentiment is also from the new release, designed by Ann Vento (who does the most scrummiest sentiment stamps!!). The papers are Fancy Pants and my gingham background (a freebie – link in the sidebar). I just die cut and punched some snowflakes out of glitter card and popped some brads and spacers on, and added lots of Stickles for the bling factor

My second card is for a GDT spot on Totally Gorjuss. The challenge this week is a fab sketch (me loves simple sketches so this one was right up my street lol).

The papers are from the Prima Jack and Jill pad that I got from Charmed Cards and Crafts – I love this pad, each page is just better than the next! Out came the Doo Hickey tag die and the dragonfly die (such a shame the doily die was such a huge disappointment!!! Half a die??? What’s that all about!!!). I sent mine back and will stick with the Marianne D doily dies – they cut perfectly every time and are a far nicer size and NO FAFFING with cutting twice and ending up with a back to front crinkled die cut. No thanks!! The sentiments are both from a Kaiser sentiment set that I got from Oyster Stamps.

Check out that fab vintagey ribbon (bias binding really lol). I just gave it a good old scrunch then tied a couple of bows, glued one on top of the other then topped it off with a pearl button – love it! The lace I have had in my scraps box for ages.

mag2

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts natch. I used 10mm roses, 20mm roses and 30mm wild rose. The pearls are also from WOC.

That’s all from me today – I have another two cards tomorrow (then normality will resume for a while lol). Enjoy your weekend.

Thanks for stopping by,

  43. Hi Bev
    love your cards, thought your ribbon idea was fantastic. Regarding the Magnolia die I am so pleased that I read on Jacque's blog that it was only half a die, (or I would have ordered it),as you say WHAT is that all about. I think who ever does their dye designs has made a big mistake with this one, (although I do luvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvtheir dragonflies, & vintage tag die's.

  47. so sweet Bev.. love these colors together and what an adorable Tilda! I didn't have any trouble cutting my doily die and I was surprised it really isn't noticeable that you flipped it over...well so many times you cover part of it up and you would because it is big... 5.5 in. in diameter! I like Marianne dies too.
