Evening everyone, hope you’re all having a good weekend
First I have some news about a new challenge over at The Ribbon Girl for all you Magnolia lovers…
The first challenge is an easy one, simply create a new project and 'use ribbons or lace'
Because it’s a Magnolia challenge …of course you must use a Magnolia image
There are 2 prizes for one randomly selected entrant;
A £10 voucher towards a spending spree at the Ribbon Girl online store and a Magnolia stamp
There is loads of scrummy inspiration from the design team so make sure you go and have a look
Here are 2 sneaky peeks of the new Lili of the Valley stamps with, as promised, a list of everything I used
This first image is called Flower Arranging and you can get this stamp, along with the papers and the stitching border stamp when they go on sale next Wednesday at midday
I love these papers, they are so bright and cheery …and, they will be perfect for those tricky boys cards!
I used Spellbinders Labels 18 to mount the bunny on and the border die is Magnolia Doohickey
The flowers were made with a Crealies die which I do use quite a lot, I like to make flowers but can’t quite get the hang of the rolled ones – I think I need to talk to our Fleur who’s a bit of an expert at them!
The stitched Grosgrain ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons, the lovely girls over there sent me some samples to try and there are some gorgeous ones (and they have some that are exclusive to them too) so do have a look at their website if you get the chance
The brads in the middle of the flowers are from The Ribbon Girl
The greeting is from the Lili of the Valley Vintage Sentiments – Just To Say set cut, out again with Labels 18
This second stamp is The Charleston which is one of the 6 romantic couple images which went on sale last Monday. You can get all 6 for a special offer price of £24 at the moment
The papers are again from one of the new pads, this one is my favourite colour combination of pink and green and I think will be a firm favourite
The greeting is from the useful Everyday Grungy Messages set
The leaves were cut with one of the new Noor design dies from Joy Crafts that we have available in the Lili of the Valley showroom.There are so many dies out there now it’s hard to come up with something new but Noor have managed it I think with these and there are some lovely ones
The divine silk ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl. I’ve looked at this for ages but couldn’t bring myself to use it ….it went so well with the papers that I had to brace myself and cut it ….yikes! It’s a bit of a big bow for me but the ribbon is so gorgeous that I couldn’t resist showing it off!
Think that’s it, make sure you pop back tomorrow for the Lili of the Valley DT hop, we all have cards to share using the new stamps so there’s lots of ideas and inspiration to be had …as well as a couple of prizes along the way!
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday x
