Happy New Year and a New Product!

Hello my crafting friends! I hope everyone has a wonderful New Year's Day and a prosperous 2011!

I wanted to show you this card so that you can see that not only does Wild Orchid Crafts sell the most gorgeous flowers, but they are going to start carrying the beautiful rhinestones that you see on my card.
 I am so excited that they are going to be carrying these now.  These sparkle so pretty!  They are so new I don't believe they have been put on the website yet, but will be very soon. They come in an amazing assortment of colors too!!!!  The guipure lace on my card is found here.

My image is one of the new releases for January 11th from Lily of the Valley and it has been colored with copics. 

I hope your day is amazing!!!  Thank you for stopping by to see some of our new products!

Hugs, Dena

Merry Christmas Eve

 hope you all get time to spend with your family and friends during this blessed holiday season!

This is the card that I made for my Gram and Gramps that we are going to see tonight!  My Gram LOVES birds so this card is perfect for them!  Papers are from Kaisercraft Tis the Season collection...I love the vintage feel to these papers!
Image has been colored with Copics and then embossed with the SU embossing folder.  I love the faux cross stitch look that it gives!   Then I took my TH Tea Dye ink pad and distressed the edges to make the image more vintage feeling.  Mr. Cardinal was then placed onto my Nellie Snellen die and spritzed with Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist.
Flowers are from the fabulous Wild Orchid Crafts!  The first arrangement was made using 25mm roses, and 15mm rose leaves.  All flowers are glitzed up with Gold Stickles.
Flower arrangement two consists of a curly wild rose, 15mm roses, 10mm roses, 25mm rose leaf, and burgundy crystal stems

Wishing you all a

A Magnolia/Nitwit Christmas card

Hi there, today I’m sharing a Christmas card using the small flat gardenia and the soon to be released larger rose buds (out in January and I can’t wait, they are gorgeous!)


The other flowers I used are 25mm wild rose and 15mm roses.  The pearls are also from WOC (and I just noticed one of the pearls are skew, best go fix that before I forget), and the mistletoe leaves are a Doohickey die.
