Lil of the Valley Challenge and a Little bit of Hope


Morning everyone, its my favourite time of the week, Lili of the Valley Challenge day.  This week we have a theme for you “WINTER FUN” and a prize that is well worth winning a £10 voucher to spend on the  Lili of the Valley Website.

I have used James in the Snow for this easel card, I love these papers but not sure who makes them as they are stored in a plastic bag with no cover or information.  Behind James I have used the Spellbinders Snowflake Die which I have added colour to with Fired Earth Distress Ink then  using a Glue Pen I have added lots of Glamour Dust.  The Snowflakes are all punched with Martha Stewart Punches and again distressed with Fired Earth.  The sentiment stamped on to the Magnolia Lable Die is from Butterfly Kisses. The snow has been raised with a Snow Writer Pen and then Glamour Dust sprinkled over the top whilst it was still wet.

Copics Used:
Fur: E53, E51, E50, Hat: R17, R05, R02: Scarf: YG71, YG73, E40


I coloured this image up  at the weekend but have not had time to make it into a card until last night.  I am using this as a DT card for Quixotic Paperie as without thinking everything I used on here is available from QP.  Just to let you know Elaine has added all these new products to the website
Stempelglede New Release Pre-Orders - and older designs are available to reserve.
Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps October Release
Pink Paislee New 6x6 pads

I am entering this card for Sketch Saturday Challenge   where the sketch is as usual stunning.

This wonderful angel is from The Elizabeth Bell for SCACD Collection and is called “Angel of Hope”, she has been coloured with Copics and Glamour Dust has been added to her wings.  The Papers are from the Marianne Designs Roses are Red pad, ohhhhh these papers are just sublime, I have used  Whimsey Stamps Sentiments Set stamp for the sentiment.  Lastly the Frame for the image is Marianne Designs LRO117.   

If you're in the US/Canada you can buy SCACD Stamps direct from Susana's Custom Art & Card Design
