Paper Lanterns

I am loving these new and different stamps from Lili of the Valley, it’s great to have a change (although CUTE will always be my first love).  And talking of Lili of the Valley, their shop is open this coming Saturday so if you are out and about in the Leeds area they will be open from 10 till 3, so feel free to drop in.

So today’s card features the Paper Lanterns stamp, just perfect for male and female cards I think.

I coloured the image with copics and pencils and then stamped and coloured the lanterns again to 3D them.

The papers are Prima, the slider buckle, pearls and faceted button thingys are from Wild Orchid Crafts (as soon as I get a link for the new products I will update my posts.)

A closer look at the image.

That’s all from me today, have a good one Smile

  34. Hi Bev~

    Variety, they say, is the spice of life. I love your "cute" cards, and this is beautiful also. I love the colors you chose. If you did it in reds and blacks, it could be even more masculine, I believe. Beautiful card...love all of the bling...those tiny pearls are used wonderfully!

  36. Wow, this is certainly different, Bev, but oh so elegant. Love the colours used and how you've left your ribbon over the edge. The black, too makes a striking foil for the other elements of the card- just beautiful1
