Life´s a Beach with Earth, Wind or Fire

Good morning peeps, hope you all had a lovely weekend. Looks like everyone is having a heatwave although it is a tad too hot for me.

Die Cut Dreams theme for this week is

Life´s a Beach

So let´s see your seaside themed cards and projects.

I knew straight away which stamp I was going to use and can you believe this is the first time I have inked her up. I have coloured Tilda with copics and raised her with 3d pads. I love this set of sentiments from SU and was so lucky to receive these as a birthday present from a dear friend and fellow DT, thanks again sweetie. I have cut them out with my nesties and mounted onto yet more. Papers are from the Vintage Collection available at Bearly Mine Designs and the flowers are of coarse from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Sweet Pea Stampers have set the theme of

Earth, Wind or Fire

I chose Wind and used Ching Chou Kuik´s "Zinnia" from her Asian Mystique cd and added little bits of glitter. Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the gorgeous pins are from Posh Pins, papers, ribbons and pearls are from my stash.

Lili of the Valley Challenge #56

Good morning peeps, I hope your day has got off to a good start ... hey not long to the weekend so plenty of "me" time ahead. I spent the day in Gibraltar yesterday and literally shopped until I dropped and came home with more than a few outfits so now I am all set up for the summer.

This week at Lili of the Valley we have a fabulous


for you made by our lovely Dawny.

I have inked up Wedding Couple and coloured with my copics cutting out with my nesties, added a wee bit glamour dust to the flowers and liquid pearls to her dress.

I was over the moon when my order arrived from Wild Orchid Crafts and now I have a super collection of these fabulous roses in lots of different sizes. Papers are SU, organza ribbon and pearl slider are from a lovely blogging buddy.

I wish to combine my card with Secret Crafter Saturday who have set their theme for Weddings/Anniversaries and Creative Craft who want you to "Stamp It Up".

New Release from Lili of the Valley

I hope you all managed to grab yourselves a bargain with the New Summer Release over at Lili of the Valley and if not ... why not ... they are only £3.75 each, or buy all 12 stamps for £40, saving you £5! Now this is what I call a Bargain!

I have inked up Baby Blanket and coloured with my Copics. I adore this image because it reminds me so much of our youngest grandson Daniel, whenever he is tired he reaches for his muslin.Fancied trying my hand at distressing but have no tool so had a play with my scissors so may now invest in the proper gadget, I then glittered all the edges with glamour dust.
Sentiment is also from Lili of the Valley, the gorgeous pins are from Posh Pins, papers are from the Vintage and Stripes Collections at Bearly Mine Designs , ribbon and flowers are from my stash and ooh I can´t forget my nesties can I?
