I {heart} Christmas

I had a play with something different for a very special friend who I think is the biggest fan of Christmas on this planet.  Seriously!  She has thousands of ornaments from all over the world so I wanted to make her something that I know she won’t already have.

Lots of delicious Wild Orchid Crafts products were used: Trellis Rose, Cottage Rose, Open Roses 15mm and 20mm, white cabochon angel, gold bells, white stamens.  I dabbed white paint on to the flowers using a small piece of sponge (much more controlled than using a paintbrush) then once dry slathered on Mercury Glass Stickles.

The edges were painted with gold paint before I adhered the paper on then once dry the edges were inked and glittered.

My lovely hubby bent some brass tubing into ‘S’ shapes so I could join the hearts together

I bought the hearts from my local craft shop but I would think you could cut them quite easily from chipboard or mount board.  I covered the front and back of each heart with Bo Bunny paper.

I had such fun making this and it only took a couple of hours to do.

Paint with all the colors of the wind

Hello everybody,

Today I have an older project to show you that I hadn't shown on the Wild Orchid Crafts blog yet.
I decorated this cigar box with Wyanet by Wee Stamps as the main inspiration. I decided right away that I wanted to use feathers so I bought some of those at a local store that sells a lot for making real flower arrangements but of course I didn't want to use real flowers on my box as I wanted it to last so I used pretty Wild Orchid Flowers in stead. Since the feathers were brownish I decided to match that with Deep Red and white flowers. I thought the deep red was the perfect combination with the brownish tones of the feathers.
This is a side view of the box.

Hope you like my box and get inspired to do some crafting of your own!
Hugs,





Wild Orchid Crafts materials used:
Deep Red Cherry Blossom Flowers
Deep Red Open Roses 15mm
Deep Red Rosebuds 6mm
White Sweetheart Blossom Flowers
White Trellis Roses 35mm
White (from set of Mixed) Tea Roses 25mm

Holiday memories

Hello everyone :)
Today I would like to show you my mini-album made with photos from this years holidays. I used lots of Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and new die cuts.


I selected white and mint flowers, they match perfectly to my papers and photos. I also added pearls and shells, I found on the beach.



I used lots of gorgeous, mint hydrangeas. I used them in a way that I learned from Olga Heldwein - they replaced the leaves and perfectly filled composition.
 

I also used daisies, sweethearts, apple blossoms and cherry blossoms.






Products from Wild Orchid Crafts:
White Mulberry Paper Magnolias 
Mixed Green Tone Hydrangrea Blooms

I hope you like my mini-album with holiday mamories!
