Wild Orchid Challenge

Happy Monday, and happy it is because I have the day off work although I will be hard at work in my craft room all day getting a last minute commission finished off.  It's Wild Orchid Challenge day today and we have a fab challenge too – Anything Goes.  How easy is that!!  And the prize is just delish too – flowers, rhinestones and lace.

SAMSUNG

For my card today I followed the fab sketch on Papertake Weekly so am entering this card there.  Thanks Dawny, it’s a brill sketch babe.

hs-attitude-1

And seeing as I was lucky enough to win one of these kits  I thought I had best use it lol.  Too many stamps, not enough time to ink them all up in for sure!  I coloured the image with Copics and Prismacolour Pencils
Skin: E21, E00, E000, R20
Hair and shoes:  E29, E25, E50 and Burnt Umber Prisma Pencil
Blouse and stockings E41, E40, 0 and Black Prisma pencil
Dress: B99, B97, B95, B93, B91 and black Prisma Pencil

hs-attitude-2

I blinged the flowers with Glimmer Mist then added stickles to the edges to bling them even more.  You need your shades for this bling lol.  The sentiment is done on a Sizzix charms die – too cute.  The distressed heart behind the flowers was just freehanded from chipboard then coated with distress crack paint then attacked with even more stickles.

hs-attitude-3

The flowers used are Classic Tea Rose, cherry blossoms, 20mm roses, 15mm roses, 4mm rose buds.  The seam binding was distressed with distress ink and scrunched then left to dry.  The totally gorgeous papers are new in stock at Dies to Die ForK & Co Julianne.  The pad is a stonking 96 pages and OMG each sheet is better than the next.  As soon as it arrived I had to order a second pad – gotta have one to calm me down when I cut into the other one rofl.  This is going to become my all time favourite pad I think.  Love love love it.  And it comes it two colour ways and guess who had to have 2 pads of each rofl.  In fact I had to have almost one of each of all the new K & Co goodies in stock.  I just can’t help myself – I am a lost cause!!!

hs-attitude-4

A better look at that gorge classic sweet rose, so pretty.  The swirl die cut is a Magnolia Doo Hickey swirl – this has to be my most used die.  Love it!

Right I have waffled on long enough – back to the grindstone for me.  Have a fabulous week!

Oh and this card is in my eBay shop.

A hAnglar for Friday Sketchers/Sketchy Colours/Lovely Hanglar Only

I totally loved this week’s sketch by Claudia at Friday Sketchers especially as I got out the old pink papers again.  What is it with me and pink??  I don’t even like pink – nothing in my home is pink and it’s a colour I just don’t wear.  Weird – but then that’s me lol.

I have just seen this card fits Sketchy Colours challenge which is pink and beige, and also Lovely Hanglar only which is stitches - they must have read my mind lol.


hs-message1

I am so loving being able to get hAnglars on eBay now, okay it’s stressful when you keep on missing them but oooh the buzz when you win a set …. a real yeehaw moment rofl.  I even managed to get the Attitude set last week, in fact I was the first person to buy the set – how’s that for being on the ball, usually I am like the cows tail, always behind lol.

Anyway, enough waffling, on to the card now.  The papers are Tim Holtz that I got in a DT pack from Dies to Die For.  I can’t believe I have not bought one of these pads yet, def on the top of my list now they are so yummy!

hs-message5

The little cutie was coloured with Copics and Prisma pencils
Hair: E33, E53, E51, E50, light brown prisma pencil
Skin: E21, E00, E000, R30, R20
Clothes: R83, R81, RV000, E42, E41, E40 and warm grey prisma pencil (yes even for the pink)

hs-message4

Check out that Trellis Rose, itsn’t it just gorgeous and has been blinged to within an inch of its life with marshmallow glimmer mist.  The other flowers are 25mm tea rose. 15mm roses, cherry blossoms and hip rosebuds.  The seam binding is also from WOC.  The large circle die is a Marianne D die and the charm is from eBay.

hs-message7

That’s it from me today, Bea, Jeanette, Claudia, Tanja, Jacque, Janneke , Jorunn and Rach (our fab new DT member)  have made some brilliant cards from the sketch so if you get a chance do pop across to their blogs to take a peek.  We are being sponsored by Tickled Pink Stamps, a new sponsor for us.

Sneak Peek and Lili of the Valley Challenge

Here’s the rest of my sneak peek that I promised yesterday, how CUTE are these bunnies!!  The image is called Bunches of Love and is just the ticket for Mothers Day.  They go on sale with the rest of the animal images on 9th March.  There is a new style in the mix, totally adorable little mice so keep an eye on the Lili of the Valley’s Ideas to Inspire blog as the DT will be posting sneak peeks on there too.  The Lili of the Valley Challenge DT are all using the new images on this week’s challenge so lots for you to ogle lol.

lotv-mum1

I have used Papermania papers that I got last year, wasn’t fussed on the patterns at first so it went in the waste of flipping money pile but actually I do like them now – I am soooo contrary!  That gorgeous embroidered organza lace is something I picked up on Ebay, it’s so delicate and pretty and works so well with the seam binding.  The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts - 25mm tea rose, 4mm rose buds, hip rosebuds and gypsophila.

lotv-mum

The Mum is a Tim Holtz alphabet die (Sizzlets) that I have edges with Stardust Stickles for a bit of bling.  I coloured the image with Copics, and what a doddle it is to colour too!

Kitty post and a little peek

I have a Penny Johnson for Stampavie card to share today (the last of the samples I did for the CHA).  I think this little Kitty is just so cute, loving all the detail in the image too.  I would love to have a front door surrounded by flowers like this one, so pretty.  The image is called Kitty Post.

The papers are those old Karen Neuberg that I love so much and can’t get any more sob.  The ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl, the 10mm roses, 15mm roses and 25mm wild rose is from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The border punch is Martha Stewart PATP Cherish.  Love the elegance of this set.

The Lili of the Valley DT are starting to show sneak peeks of the new release that is out next month.  I am not so organised and only have a card done for tomorrow so I am showing you a little peek of the image I have used on that card.  How cute is this mammy and baby bunny.  And a breeze to colour too – me loves simple!

Phew, now that’s a mouthful lol.  I have managed to combine both challenges this week – a fab sketch from Bea for Friday Sketchers and Love You theme for Just Magnolia and hAnglar & sTanglar challenge.  I was lucky enough to get one of the new H&S kits that were on Ebay last week but didn’t get round to using one of the stamps for today’s card – gutted lol.  They are all Ez mounted and ready to go so tonight I am going to get inky with my new babies xxx

And it’s another easel card for a change.  The gorge papers are DCWV Linen Closet from Oyster Stamps.  Love this pad but keep forgetting I have it (and I can’t be faffed with raking through the pile of pads – so lazy!)  Tilda holding heart has been coloured with Copics and Prisma Pencils (just the black and brown were used for this image).  Copics used are

Hair:  E33, E53, E51, E50 & brown pencil
Skin: E21, E00, E000, R20

Shading around Tilda:  C1, C0, C00, BG10, E00, E000 – These I just dotted around then blended the whole lot with E0000 when I was done.   Got this idea from Suzanne Dean – she is one clever lady!

jmfs2

  

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts 25mm tea rose, 15mm roses, poppies and that gorgeous guipure lace is new in stock.  I just ran BG75 Copic over it to match up with the rest of the colour scheme.

Wild Orchid Challenge

Wild Orchid Crafts stock update!!!!  The Filigree corners, new guipure Lace and Blooms (that I used on this card ) are now on the website, I think the corners will fly so don't dally lol.

It’s Wild Orchid Challenge day today and this time round we have a sketch to follow.  Paul and Siri have put up a delish prize too, lots of roses and some of the new (yet to go on the website) guipure lace.  The DT have made some stunning cards so pop across to the blog to check them out.

I have used one of my Sweet Pea stamps that I got from 3D Jean, this one is call Red Hearts.  Isn’t she just gorgeous!  The papers are Onirie also from 3D Jean.  Love these colours.


red-heart

Check out those flowers!!  Wild Orchid Crafts has a little feature on their website where they link to crafters videos using their products and I stumbled across this one made from the blooms from Wild Orchid Crafts.  Well they are as easy to make as they look and so effective, it’s amazing what you can do with 4 blooms and a hot glue gun!!!  I have got a whole hot house full of them now rofl. 
Apologies for the blurry pic, I forgot to put the macro on durrr.

red-heart-1

  Another shot of the flowers, love them!  Why she looks so orange in this pic I have no idea!  The pics were all taken together, same light, same position.  Cameras!!!

Have a great week
