Lili of the valley - together forever (engagment card)

WELL SUMMERS FINALLY HERE .....But for how long. Hope you are all enjoying
feeling the sun on your face.
So for this weeks card I've done an engagement card.
this card took me forever to make. But it turned out OK in the end..I think.
The stamp used is lili of the valley's- together forever  I thought would be a good stamp to used for my friends engagement. Wow what a rock she's got sitting on here finger. Not only did he impress her with this huge bling, But he choose the diamond him self and designed the ring and had it specially made for her. shes one lucky gal.
Sorry back to card...image was coloured using copic markers
I did make a list of colours used but its lost in sea of  paper/ card off cuts and a spilt pot of silver glitter on my desk. If said list is found I will update this post.
Question for you.... Do you want to know what colours I use ?
I know I do like to see it on blogs I visit just because if i am an stuck on a hair colour I want to create  some times I look on blogs to see what copics they have used to achieve theirs.
The shadowing was done using Polychromos Artists Pencils.
I used distress inks on edge pumice stone.
To bottom corner you can see I added a flowers from wild orchid crafts
I used  cherry blossom and roses in 2 different sizes then added the rose buds.
I cut off the stems so i could glue the flowers in to place . Some of the steams I removed and curled to make tendrils which I added the to the arrangement. I added the silver glitter to the flowers.
I also added a few of the magnolia heart swirl die cuts to the arrangement. Punched out a few small hearts , used glue pen to outline and added the micro fine glitter.
For outer frame I have used a Mather Stewart  around the page punch.
The inside I just made plain and simple.
used the around the page punch again added ribbon the same as the front of the card. and a couple of the punched glittered heats again.
Added a few finishing touches to front of card. eg sentiment, bow, punched hearts, flat back crystals, butterfly memory box die cut. think that's about it.

Penny Black stamp Gift Tag

Hello, Sorry I have been a bad blogger of late and not posted anything for little while. But you know how it is life gets in the way of what you would rather be doing at times.
Today post is only a little project but may help to get your creative side flowing. and this little idea is a lovely way to give a gift or take along to  BBQ as a hostesses gift  (lol I know been a bit silly. weathers not ready yet for BBQ'S).
Take one of theses
a nice bottle of fizz
Take some transparent cellophane wrap this one had some flourishes printed on to it.
You can get this cello wrap at a florists or some greeting card shops sell it. Or try EBay
so what I did was take about 1 meter length gather it up around the bottle neck and secured with a ribbon tied in a bow.
I then made this gift tag to go on to the bottle.
I used a Penny Black stamp . I had this years but have not used them for a while. ( Note to myself look through and use some of my older stamps more often)
The image was stamped and coloured with copic markers and polychrome pencils. and didn't have a gold pen to do the edge of the bath ... but did have a gold stamping ink so I used a paint brush and smudged it where I wanted it. I used Xcut die for the frame and magnolia die for the pink vine type flourish.  The bubbles in cats bath tub were done using pearl decor pen to make them 3d. I let them dry and added more pearl bubble blobs to give more dimension.
To the top of the bottle where cello is gathered. I added some pearl sprays and attached some die cut butterflies. This is a memory box die.
Here is the finished item.
What i have done before is add wrapped chocolate's  loosely scatted inside the cello wrap then tied securely at the neck ( mmmmm Lindor Chocs my fave )
As you can see i also added a few bows there at the neck of the bottle.
I am sure who ever you give it to will be delighted with the effort you have gone too not only with there bottle of bubbly but how lovely it was gift wrapped.

I hope to get my self sorted and get back in to my  crafty room.
I did make a card to go on to my blog but....
it was not coming together right so that when in to bin..  opps.

Lili of the Valley - Rosie with cake for Lisa's b-day

Hello, You ready for this weeks card.Well one of the girls at the stables its her Birthday on Friday so I used this Lili of the valley stamp its called Rosie with cake, To make her a card.
Rosie's hair looks very much like Lisa's
That's why I choose this cute little stamp.
I coloured her with copic markers and polychrome colouring pencils.
Added stickles glitter to cake base, and used a glue pen and micro fine glitter on skirt, shoes and headband. Added so chunky cosmic glitter shards to hem of her skirt.
I used me pearl pen to add dots of texture to background. and stamped swirls to edges. Stitched a boarder around image. The arrangement to side is a fluffy feather with pearl spray added and used parts of memory box die, Serafina Heart, added a rose from wild orchid crafts and a little sentiment.
The inside of the card was decorated to compliment the front of the card.using the same papers I had put on front.
Because the cards a tad bulky to go into envelope. I make this little box to give her it in.
