A Smile and a Roar
I Really wanted to join in the The Next Level Challenge last week but time run out, so I was determined to get it done early this week. There is a great sketch to follow and they would like to see 3d on your card. Thanks girls had real fun with this Challenge.
Our Guest Stamper on Just Magnolia Tutorial Challenge this month is Debby from A Scrapjourney, and her tutorial is on how she makes those wonderful 3d cards that wow us all. So this challenge from The Next Level was perfect for trying out her tutorial, I am quite pleased with my first attempt.
Sad news first I have heard from Magnolia about not receiving my Summer Kit, they said my Yearly subscription run out so I was not going to get the Summer Kit Sob Sob!!!, I have begged them to let me pay for a kit but have not heard back from them yet. I wish they let you knew when to re-new your subscription.
Anyway after all these pre-amble onto todays card, luckily a very lovely friend copied me some of the new Magnolias so I have used my favourite two from the kit, they have been coloured with COPICS and 3d. I have edged around the image with Distress Ink and cut the circles with Nesties, The papers are a Sweete Shoppe Download, I think it is Bloom and Grow.
The Sentiment was cut with the Nesties again. I found the lovely Pins on my embellishment at Tabby Craft, Tab has some lovely new items on the site please go and take a look.
I tried to take a photo of the 3d but couldn't get it quite right will keep practising.
Lili of the Valley would like to see ANIMALS on your creations this week. The Dt have made some fantastic examples for you to get some inspiration.
The Lili of the Valley Website have some fantastic Summer Offers at the moment, including all stamps at £2.00, Promarkers at £1.75, and if you have seen their show on Ideal World and Create and Craft you will have seen their fabulous new Animal and Monster range, these are also now available on the website, so why not go and visit the site today, just click Here. Don't forget it is not necessary to use LOTV projects on your entry but if you do have any of their stamps or images it would be lovely to see your cards.
I Have used the High Hopes Lion for my card this week, he has been locked up in his cage for ages, almost forgot I had him, must start too use my High Hopes stamps again. Leo has been coloured with COPICS, the Papers are Basic Grey and the Buttons and Ribbons are all From Bunny Zoes Crafts.
Thanks for looking
