Two Little Piggies

I recently got some new Stamps and Smiles Piggy stamps and thought they would look adorable decked out with some fun Wild Orchid Crafts products!

My first card features lace, pearls and flowers!  Papers are from Basic Grey Olivia Collection.  The lace is the fabulous Guipure Lace!
Flower arrangement consists of Classic Sweet Rose, two 30mm Wild Roses, 15mm Roses (that started as white and were airbrushed to match the dark blue paper), Aster Daisy, 5mm closed rosebuds (that were also airbrushed).  All flowers were glitzed with star dust stickles. 

Now for my next little piggy card:

I went for a vintage look on this card and used DCWV Linen Closet papers.
Flowers and Pearls are from the fabulous Wild Orchid!  All flowers have started as white and were airbrushed...on the teal ones I have also airbrushed a brown to make them more vintage.  Arrangement consists of a 35mm Wild Rose, 20mm roses, 15mm roses, 10mm roses, and an aster daisy.  Pearls have been placed in corners of card, on corner flourish and on flowers....they are 5mm and 3mm Brown Pearls.
Here is the upper flower arrangement using the same flowers!  All flowers have been painted with illuminate smooch...first time I put this one flowers and I have to say I LOVE the look it gives!!!

Hope you have enjoyed my piggies!!!

Wedding Gift Wallet

Good morning to everyone, Dawny P here  and I hope that you are all enjoying the Bank Holiday today :)


I thought I’d share this gift wallet which I made for my daughter to give to her friend who is getting married at the weekend.

They are giving money as their wedding gift but didn’t want to just put it into the card so she asked me to make something for her and this is what I did.


 Picture 003 copy

 It’s simply made from a sheet of A4 card on which I’d printed Pink Petticoat Pretty Little Hearts.

I used Gold solid on one side and the negative image on the other (which is the inside of the wallet). Then I used the positive image for the outside.

I folded it into 3,  taped the bottom section on the 2 outer edges then decorated it.





The beautiful blooms and embellishments I used were  ……


35mm Wild Rose in yellow which I then Glimmer Misted



White Heather Stems which are new in and are of course to symbolise good luck



8mm semi-open roses, again in yellow



White Pearl Stamens



Pearlescent Gold Head Pins



5mm Brown Self Adhesive Pearls


You could co-ordinate this to match your wedding card and easily adapt it to hold gift vouchers etc.

And by using poinsettias and seasonal embellishments, it would be fab for Christmas.


Have a great day and happy crafting xxx

Create your own Party Decorations!

I have created my own little party decorations. I've made a Card, Party Hat, Blower, Centerpiece and party favor. I love the way this came out.

I made my own centerpiece altering a can of mushrooms. Edwin has some blue and white Aster Dasies on the sides of him. I stuck some of my Wild Orchid Flowers, Wild Roses  in  the can, isn't it purrrrrddddy!

Now for my card, which I can seriously look at ALL day! The flowers are so perfect! You can find any shade at the Wild Orchid Craft store. Look at how well they match my papers. It all looks like it was made for each other lol! I used a purple Wild Rose for the center and Cherry Blossoms and Aster Dasies for the sides.

Have a great week!

Hugs, Mindy

Acetate Card

I thought you might like to see the Acetate card I made for Just Magnolia Challenge this week of course as with almost all of my cards I have used lots of Wild Orchid Crafts flowers on here

006  I have used white Cherry Blossom, 15mm Open Rose and 6mm Closed Rosebuds, and have added Stardust Stickles around the edges of the petals.  I am afraid the camera didn’t pick up the Lovely glitter effect on the flowers.

001a  001b

If you would like to find out how I made this card just pop over to my blog here

Thanks for looking and have a great day.
