Here Comes Summer–Lili of the Valley Challenge & another Sneak Peek

summer3a

 

Two cards for you today, first we have my DT card for Lili of the Valley Challenge which this week has a lovely theme for you HERE COMES SUMMER, and a chance to win a £10 voucher to spend in the store.

I have used one of the older Lili of the Valley Images for this card this one is called “Deckchair Dreaming” and fits the challenge perfectly.  I must admit I am so stressed and busy at the moment I could do with a bit of deckchair dreaming!!!  The sentiment also fits the challenge perfectly and is again by Lili of the Valley.

The papers used are from K&Co Pad “Hopscotch Boy”,   I now have my eye on a Banner Dye from Tracy at Dies to Die For but haven’t ordered it yet, so I cut out the little flags by hand and stuck them on to some Twine and draped across th top of the card.

I have used Copics to colour the image, I am afraid I rushed this card late last night and its not up to my usual standard, will have to make a note to myself to get more organised.

The Copics Used: Bear: E53, E51, E50, Prisma Pencil – Medium Brown

Deckchair: YG25, YG23, YG21, YR15, Y38, Y35, E17, E13

Todays sneak peek from the Crafters Companion Humphrey release is one of my favourite stamps, hopw could you resist these 2 little cutioes.

Another 4 Drawer box card used for this one, but this box took half the time to make, I used the Crafters Companion new Boxer Board and the instructions on the accompanying Ultimate Advanced Construction Techniques DVD  to make this one it was just so simple.

All the Papers are from the Humphrey Twin CD that accompanies the stamps.  The Wild Orchid Crafts  Seam Binding has been distressed, the lace is from my stash box, the doily behind the image was cut with Cherry Lynn Design Waltzing Matilda Lace Doily Die from Dies to Die For.  The flowers are also a die from Magnolia and I have added 2 Babies Breath flowers to the middle,
