I blinked and lost the weekend lol. I had such great plans to get so much done and did it? Did I heck as like. Oh well, I should know by now NOT to make plans for my free time!!
This week’s Wild Orchid Challenge is Make it Sparkle with Stars. Please do take a peek at the DT’s fab creations, and be prepared to be dazzled by all the sparkly bling!! For my card today the stars are on those little cuties’ dresses. The stamp – All in a row – is from Lili of the Valley’s newest release, aren’t they just too stinkin’ cute!!
The paper is last year’s Memory Box Mistletoe, still one of my faves!! I think the sentiment is from a set of Jayne Nestorenko stamps from last Christmas. The satin ribbon, new lace, trellis rose, 20mm roses, 15mm roses, 10mm roses, cherry blossoms and tulips have all been given the German Glass Glitter treatment and all the products can be found at Wild Orchid Crafts.
I am loving this olive green colour combo right now, and so easy to achieve with Copics and Prismacolor pencils. Colours used are:
Skin: E11, E00, E000, R20
Hair: E31, E51, E50
Reds: R29, R24, R22, R20
Greens: YG97, YG95, YG93, E81
Golds: YR24, UR21, Y11
This week’s Quick Flick video will be on the Ideas to Inspire blog this afternoon if you want to pop across to take a peek.
Oh and before I forget (again!!) I was sent a 3M Pink Advanced Tape Glider to review. Now I have an ATG gun that I didn’t really get along with as it was such a faff to change the tapes and I don’t do faff. So, with not a little trepidation, I opened the box and read the instructions and managed to get the tape in and working in under 30 seconds. Believe me that’s F1 speed for me, I don’t do technical and have no patience, so I was well impressed.
The tape is nice and narrow and is strong enough to hold ribbon and tape in place at the back of the card. Up till now I have been using Scor Tape or red line tape but will be using the Tape Glider from now on.
Soooo, 5 stars thumbs up from me, I love it – especially as it’s PINK!!!
