Icy Angel Sneak Peek

I’ve another sneak peek from Lili of the Valley’s new release that goes on sale on the website on the 10th November, unless you are going to the NEC – then you can get ya mitts on them sooner Smile 

Today’s card features Icy Angel, she is just gorgeous and I am so in love with these new stamps. 


I had a bit of a play with my dies now that they are all sorted and arranged in their own cupboard, found stuff I didn’t even know I had Embarrassed smile

So I put a Tim Holtz border die to use, think this one is called Snow Flurries.  I even die cut the sentiment from a Sizzlets die that I have had for ages.  The papers are First Editions from Dies to Die For.  The seam binding and lace as well as the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  Flowers used are Trellis Rose, 10mm roses, 15mm roses, tulips, sweetheart blossoms and fabric flowers

And a closer peek at this little sweetie


Have a great weekend,

Lili of the Valley challenge–Bright and Sparkly

It’s Lili of the Valley challenge day today and this week our challenge is Bright & Sparkly.  So get out the bling, the glitter and all the sparkly bits and play lol.

bev rochester lotv bright and sparkly challenge


Yes it’s another of those magazine cards done for my favourite magazine – Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine Smile using those gorgeous Dovecraft papers, they are so perfect for traditional Christmas cards.  The image, Feathered Friends, is coloured with Copics and Prismacolors.  The sentiment is also from Lili of the Valley’s Circular Christmas Sentiments

The holly leaves I cut by hand then coated with green German Glass Glitter 80 grit.  I edged the poinsettias with Glossy Accents then dipped them in 100 grit gold German Glass Glitter.  And for a touch extra sparkle I slathered the image in Stickles and Glamour Dust Laughing out loud

That’s it from me today, must dash – lots to do and my train leaves shortly for the NEC.  Hopefully my other posts and candy will post as scheduled, please behave Mr Blogger!

Wee Suzi

This is going to be a super short and sweet post again today, I have so much to get done before I head off for the NEC on Friday.  I have another of the Wee Stamps cards that I made for Whimsy Magazine, and it’s this little cutie – Wee Suzi – that got me hooked on Wee Stamps!


I made another shaped cards using those amazing Go Kreate XXL Frames Dies.  Wee Suzi was coloured with copics and pencils, once again I have no idea of the colours I used except I do remember using the low BV’s for the dress.


The paper is K & Co Watercolour Designer Paper Pad.  The sentiment is from the Birthday Postage Stamp Sentiments set, the flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts as is the delish organza ribbon .  The flowers used are 25mm wild roses, carnation, sweetheart blossoms.  The leaves are punched with a Martha Stewart Frond Branch punch.


Must dash, lots to do

Rocking Horse

I have another of those vintagey looking Christmas cards that I did as part of a commission for Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine a few months back using that delish First Edition Christmas Joy paper pad again.  And I have also used another of Tina Wenke’s Christmas stamps, isn’t this Rocking Horse just gorgeous?  The sentiment is from the Happy Holidays sentiments.    The pearls and satin ribbon are from Wild Orchid Crafts.


Once again apologies for the not so good photograph, it’s another of those I took on my phone.
