A Little Shabby Chic!

I have done something a little different today! I found a wonderful tutorial on THIS blog and gave it a go.

This little sweetie is called "Dandelion Clock"  and can be found at the Lili of the Valley shop.  I colored her with copics and hit a few spots with Prisma pencils to bring out more depth.  Her wings have Stardust stickles and so do the Dandelions.

Check out the white acrylic paint on the flowers.  I then added some Stardust Stickles to this also.  The flowers I used are:

I added Picket Fence White Crackle Paint to the Decorative Metal Corners from Wild Orchid.  I like how a little fell off and it shows the silver, very chic! haha!

Here you can see the gorgeous White Cotton Lace from Wild Orchid Crafts also.
That's about it for me!
Thanks so much for checking out the Wild Orchid Crafts Blog!

Happy Crafting Everyone!

How Luscious Is Brown and Peach??

Happy Tuesday and a very splendid week to everyone!!

Gosh it is such a joy to make a card just for the joy of making a card! This is one of those cards!!! And nothing is more pleasant than using WOC offerings on such a card! The base and all matting is Bazzill and the DP is from the Summer Breeze Paper Pad by First Edition. The image is a cutie Tilda colored with Copics and a touch of Stickles and cut out with triple oval Nesties. The base of the floral arrangement is made with the Magnolia Doohickey Swirls Die.

The floral arrangement is ALL by Wild Orchid Crafts in the yummiest shades of browns and peaches: 40mm Trellis Rose, 25mm Open Roses, 20mm Open Roses, 15mm Open Roses, and Aster Daisies. The Heart Shaped Pins, Peach Self-Adhesive Pearls, and lovely Guipure Lace are also from WOC.

Thank you so much for dropping by and I can assure you that there are so many lovelies at Wild Orchid Crafts that shopping is such a pleasure there with the choices of offerings and the magnificent customer service!

A Pink Sunset!

Hello Everyone! I have a card to share today. I love the lace around the border. Sometimes this really thick lace can be hard or intimidating to use since it's so thick. When you bunch it up behind your image or layer it really makes a nice border.

I hope you all have a great weekend!

But Wild Orchid Crafts has so many more items which are so hot for our scrapping, cardmaking, and crafting!! Gosh if you take a few minutes to search out the left sidebar at the shop you will find so many gorgeous items to play with--27 different colors of Vintage Seam Binding, the most darling Paper Doilies, lovely Decorative Metal Corners, and gorgeous Organza and Satin Ribbons in two widths and loads of pretty colors, as well as beautiful Metallic Ribbons which you will find HERE.
