Lots to shout about today – it’s the Christmas in July bash – day 2 with Wild Orchid Crafts and Lili of the Valley so I have a sneak peek for you. Not that it’s a very good photo, I was rushing on Friday night to get them all photographed before packing them up to take down to Doncaster and just when you don’t want the afternoon sun shining in the window what does it go and do??? Flipping blazes in and turns me card all yellow looking instead of bright white grrrr. I suppose I shouldn’t complain seeing as we haven’t seen it since, I wonder if it took the huff lol.
Before I get on to my cards today just a quick toot ….. Dies to Die For is now stocking …. wait for it ….. deep breaths Bev …… MAJA DESIGN PAPERS!!! OMG they are just stunning, I have drooled over mine since I got them on Friday. There are 12 x 12 papers and also 6 x 6 pads but they are whizzing so go grab yours quick!! I should have a card ready to post tomorrow.
This little sweetie is called Oh Christmas Tree and will be on sale at Lili of the Valley on the 25th July. The big wooden star is new in at Wild Orchid Crafts, I just applied some gold Stickles to the edges for a bit of bling and to pick up the gold in the Forever Friends paper. I carried the gold through to the “leaves” which are actually small gold padded angel wings, also from Wild Orchid Crafts. I think they are just perfect for the poinsettias. The lace, satin ribbon and pearls are also from WOC and the sentiment is from LOTV – from the Christmas Greetings small set.
Don’t forget to check out the Ideas to Inspire blog and Wild Orchid Crafts blog to keep up to date with who has candy to give away today!
And now on to my Teddy Bo Tuesday card, I have used one of the new releases (out today) – Teddy Bea 123. Now this is one cutie patootie! It was chosen by my grandson for his teacher and he peered over my shoulder giving constructive criticism (cough) …… help whilst I was making the card. He chose the paper and also the flowers and even helped to glue the flowers in place (all he really wanted to do was get at the guillotine – uh oh!!)
The raffia ribbon and roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts as are the pearls and corner metal embellishment. The fab sentiment is from the Whimsy Thank You Tiles stamp set from Dies to Die For. The dotty paper is Memory Box Bubblegum Dots. There are some delish colours and patterns in this range that pretty much work with any patterned paper. And that gorgeous die is from Go Kreate! LOVE the shape of it (and the price lol)
To sign off here’s a sneak peek of all the new Teddy Bo digi stamps that have been released today.
