Warm Wishes and Some Exciting News

Morning Everyone,

I am sooo excited to share with you today my DT card for LLC and also............ OMG I can't believe it........ yes, Little Darlings Rubber Stamps.  Thank you Angie for accepting me into your fabulously talented Design Team, I am over the moon happy :)

Where was I, oh yeah.  Well I am sooooo pleased to show you the soon to be released Little Darlings "Snowflake Ballet" that was revealed at CHA recently.  I used my distress ink markers and was soooo pleased with her that I couldn't wait to share, so I teamed her up with all my favourite papers and embellishments from that gorgeous embellishment shop Live and Love Crafts, who are now stock Wild Orchid Craft Flowers, yum, yum, it just gets better.

The theme that the girls are following over at LLC is ..... "our favourite colours".  Well this was hard for me as I have so many, so I have thought long and hard about it and I think if I had to pick just one colour combo it would have to be blue, cream and white, love these colours.  So this is what I came up with.



I have made another wintery card,  and the text "WARM" was stamped out of another soon to be released Little Darlings Stamp Set of Letters.  They are little scrabble letters and I love this type of lettering on my cards.



The papers aren't christmas papers but like I say about the snow tex, that isn't just for Christmas, well papers aren't just for birthdays to me.  Speaking of snow tex, yes it has been out again.  The snow was added by liquid pearls and heated with a heat gun, then I added some snow tex, love the result.

The collage below showing some of my favourite embellies. Melissa Frances resin frame and vintage findings pearl centres added to a poinsetta and not forgetting the little angel.





Before I go Angie sent me some Tsukineko Tack and Peel.  It's fabulous and as I hadn't heard of it before I thought you guys might not have.  It's available from Little Darlings HERE.  It's clear and sticks onto your acrylic block and then you just place your stamps directly onto it.  No more adding pritt stick or tombo glue to the back of your unmounted stamps, and no more being a victim of leaving the lid off and the glue going off and then not being able to stamp.


Hugs Tracy
