Hello!!!!! from Milly and the Snowman


Good Morning, how many of you stayed up until midnight to get your orders in for the new Lili of the Valley Girls release, a little birdie told me there were a lot of you.  Today I dear Milly is sending you a big Hello from herself, Maisie and Emma the new girls on the block.


Do you sometimes make a card that you really enjoyed creating this is one of those, of course using the sweet Milly “Hello” image helped but everything just came together perfectly.  The lush Maja Design papers are available from Crafts U Love and Dies to Die for, this card was made from just one sheet of the double sided paper, lots of punches and dies used as well, Nesties Fleur de Lys, Martha Stewart Border Punch, Nestie circle die for the sentiment.   I was so pleases Milly fitted perfectly on the largest of the Go-Kreate Label Dies, I pencilled around the outside of the die and then cut it out to add a border for the label.  The sentiment is from the Lili of the Valley Mixed Circular Greetings sheet. and the heart is from the Cute as a Button Sheet.


Milly has been coloured with Copics again, I don’t have the colours (sorry). 


Flowers from Wild Orchid Craft.

Now it is the turn of the iconic Snowman, this is my final sneak peek of the Stamp Sheet,  he makes his debut this evening at 9.00pm on Ideal World, as usual with any Crafters Companion product he is made from good quality rubber, there are 3 images on the sheet, a selection if snowflakes and greetings, there is also a stunner of a CD featuring him which includes all the usual  folders i.e. Backing papers, Frame Cards decoupage, Inserts and a smashing new folder called “Card Companions” which is a perfect tool for making all those really quick cards. 


I have used a Which Craft card blank again for the base of this card, Dark Blue Co-Ordinations  card was run through the Grand Calibur in the Snowflake Embossing Folder and then sanded down, I love this effect, and the snowflakes are all punched with Martha Stewart Punches.

Wow are you still here, that was a long one.
