Hello. blogger friends.
I hope you are well?
Today sees our new fortnightly challenge at Simply Magnolia and this time our challenge them is;CHRISTMAS IN JULY.
My favourite theme.
Our wonderful sponsor for our challenge is Stamp & Create
I used Sparkle Poinsettia Tilda from the Waiting For Christmas 2014 Collection.
The image is stamped with Memento rich cocoa ink onto Neenah cardstock and cut ot using a CartUs oval die cut.
I have coloured the image with Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils and matted the image onto a Joy Crafts Noor! oval
For my shaped card I used GoKreate XXL frilly frame #2 and Maja Design Coffee In The Arbour papers from Live & Love Crafts
Other dies used are Joy Crafts edge border 5, winter sentiment and Billes flourishes. Marianne Design clock, Christmas tree 1 and Ivy circle, Cheery Lynn French pastry doily and Sizzix on the edge snow flurries.
I have inked the die cuts with Tim Holtz frayed burlap distress ink.
The gorgeous lace is called "Marie Therese" from Live & Love crafts
The flower arrangement consists of a red curly rose, white lilies and 20mm Ivory open roses from WOC.
The larch cone, white flower spray, beaded berry stamen and Vintage crystal star pin are from Live & Love Crafts
I have coated the arrangement with Snow - Tex.
Can you see my adorable cherub? I made her out of Martha Stewart crafter's clay using a silicone mould. I rubbed over her with frayed burlap distress ink.
I tied tiny jingle bells from WOC with natural twine from The Ribbon Girl to the tree.
The bark star and jingle bells are from Live & Love Crafts
Lots of Snow - Tex again! I love the stuff! I need some more.
A close lokk at adorable Sparkle Poinsettia Tilda. Isn't she gorgeous?
I used Ranger gold liquid pearls on the poinsettia's and dotted Tilda's cheeks with a
white gelly roll pen.
The 3mm s/a white pearls are from The ribbon Girl
Inside the card is decorated with design paper and a Spellbinders stately circle.
