Can I tell you a secret?

Not really lol, that’s the name of the stamp I have used today, by Sarah Kay for Stampavie.  Still one of my favourites even though it’s a golden oldie. 


I used some of the new German Glass Glitter that Wild Orchid Crafts has in stock in the most delish array of colours.  I used brown and light rose 100 grit on the flowers.  Loving the texture and bling.



Products used:

Seam binding, button, twine, Prima Swirl, 25mm rose (my fave size!!), 15mm roses, 10mm roses, tulips, metal embellishments – corner all from Wild Orchid Crafts

Shabby Chic and a Little Color Chart!

Hello everyone!  Today is the start of a new challenge at the Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge Blog.  I hope you will join us.  There is always a wonderful prize to win!!!

Our theme is Shabby Chic with Friendship.  

The papers are Papermania - Blueberry Hill, I colored with pencils and the super sweet image is one of the new releases called "Emma Swing" from Lili of the Valley.

I made a little color chart of a few of the pink flowers and a few of the white colored flowers.  I did this because sometimes it is not so easy to see the difference in the color shades unless they are next to one another.  I hope this helps you in picking out your flowers when you order from Wild Orchid Crafts.  They have such a LARGE selection of colors!!!! Eventually you will need to own them all!!!

Do you see what I mean?  There are subtle differences but enough to matter with your papers! It drives me crazy to have the wrong pink with my particular pink paper! haha! Look at the Rose Pink, it sort of reminds me of a dusty color and the Pink Mist is ever so slightly lighter than the Baby Pink.  If you need to just click on the picture and it will enlarge so you can read it better.  Now here are the whites I wanted to show you:

I put these really close together hoping that you could see the subtle differences.  The Deep Ivory could even almost pass for a pale yellow color.  Sometimes when you are using the bright white papers, you will notice if you use the wrong "white" flower.  The Ivory may look white, but it is so slightly darker than the white and so on.
I hope these two charts help you out.  As I get more purples I will probably do the same.

Thanks so much for stopping by the Wild Orchid Crafts Blog, where we always hope to give you a little more inspiration with your flowers and embellishments from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Happy Crafting,

Today you will find that there are so many new things being added on today at Wild Orchid Crafts and I know you don't want to miss them!!! Raffia paper ribbons...and gorgeous metal pieces galore!!! We already know that if WOC has them, they must be beautiful and fun to play with.

I wanted to show you a little card today which is a Sneaky Peek of the LOTV Sweet Emma walking two of the cutest little doggies ever!! And, oh my goodness, what better way to embellish this little darling than finery from Wild Orchid Crafts--as a matter of fact, tis the best finery anywhere!! In the floral treatment I used one of those gorgeous 40mm Trellis Roses flanked by 30mm Wild Roses, and 15mm Open Roses. Nothing is more beautiful than the WOC Roses!!!! I also used the lovely Gold Filigree Decorative Metal Corners which really add to the elegance methinks. The lovely ribbon I have used is the 25mm Burgundy Organza which ties so beautifully and situates itself so nicely on your cards. Check out all of the gorgeous colors and sizes that are also available!

When I go to WOC the first thing I have on my mind is FLOWERS...FLOWERS...FLOWERS....But have a look around and you will find so many other embelllishments which are so wonderful also---you don't want to miss a thing on your next visit to the shop!!!

Sneak Peek – New products on sale Thursday 9th June

I have a sneak peek for you today of  new products from Wild Orchid Crafts (these go on sale tomorrow).  The stamp is from the new release from Lili of the Valley that goes on sale on 14th June.


New to WOC is the stunning Raffia Ribbon and the “antique look” charms – I have used two different butterflies on this card.  The raffia ribbon comes quite compressed but I unrolled it to give a crinkled vintage look which I must say I love!!  It’s so easy to work with too and because it is essentially paper it shapes beautifully and stays put.



The sentiment is also from Lili of the Valley’s Clear Additions range.  The lace, pearls, button and flowers are also from Wild Orchid Crafts – Trellis rose, cherry blossoms, 20mm roses, 15mm roses, 10mm roses, 4mm rose buds.

Blooms and wee pearls are two of my favorite things...lalalalala

Happy Tuesday everyone!! I hope you week is going well and that you have as much sunshine as we have...if not, I will be more than happy to share!!! Today is not my day to post.....but I thought I would sneak right in with a little card I made using some of the SUMMER MIXED BLOOMS or PETALS from Wild Orchid Crafts. I don't use these blooms often but when I do, I just LOVE the looks of them!!! I find that I can have just as much dimension with them.

These beautiful mulberry paper blooms, also known as petals, come in a pack of 100. They are in mixed sizes and shapes (2cm - 5cm), and they are perfect for embellishing all cardmaking and scrapbooking projects. I have used the MIXED PINK/WHITE TONE BLOOM SET and by using the various shades of pinks I was able to match the DP so closely!!!! To get the added dimension, I first put the flowers together with silver floral brads which made the flowers curl...and then I used some Helmar 3-Dimensional Scrap Dots (which is like a silicon gel) to adhere the flowers to the card.

I also have to rave a bit about the absolutely magnificent Self-Adhesive Pearls and Rhinestones available over at WOC. I usually have my cards dripping with pearls but for this card I just had to use a couple of the 3mm White Pearls for the buttons on Milly's dress!! AND these pearls are now discounted to an AMAZINGLY LOW price so jump over and check them out before they are all gone!!!!

Well, I guess I have sneaked in long enjoy your day and drop back by here often to see some magnificent ideas and get fully inspired by the beautiful products available at WOC! Hugs from Jacque!!
