Live and Love Crafts - Flowers

WOO HOO!!!  This week at Live and Love Crafts the theme is one of my FAVORITE THINGS when it comes to card making.  

WILD ORCHID FLOWERS!  

How can you not love these products?  They are absolutely gorgeous!!  I'm sooo happy that LLC is now stocking these.  Not only for the reason that they're such a great product but also because I love one stop shop stores.  Say that 3 times fast.  LOL!

So just to show how versatile Maja Design papers can be, I've actually used their Vintage Summer AND Spring papers together to made it a winter card!!   hee hee  My image is from Little Darlings Rubber Stamps from the Lisbeth by MilkCoffee line called "Snowflake Ballet".  Isn't she cute with all this LLC lusciousness?!  I think I may have gotten a little carried away with my dots.  LOL!


I love my Tim Holtz snowflake border die and painted a bit of Gesso onto them as well as the WOC flowers.  I also covered some punched snowflakes in Twinklets and adhered them to the center of some of the bigger snowflakes.


HOW CUTE ARE THESE TREES?!  I saw them last year and just never got around to ordering them until last week.  Happy I could still get my grimy hands on them.  Actually it's only one die called "Christmas Stacker Tree" from Dee's Distinctively Dies.

I dabbed on some Glossy Accents to each layer of the trees then added lots of Twinklets Diamond Dust to make it look whimsically wintery.  If you use the Glossy Accents instead of glue at least when it dries, it's clear and looks a lot like the dust pieces anyway.


And here I have a whole lot of everything!  LOL!  Some gorgeous layered laces, my "Vintage Box Lacing Chocolate" Magnolia doohickey border die I seem to be so fond of using and LOOK!  More WOC flowers!  hee hee  Can you ever have too many?!  Ok, maybe.  I've caught myself heading to add another flower or embellishment and told myself "STOP!  PUT IT DOWN AND BACK AWAY FROM THE TABLE".  LOL!  So ya, even I have my limits. 


Well that card was fun and didn't take me a whole day like they normally do.  I got smart though.  I normally watch tv online while I'm in my craft room but this time I told myself NO! I kind of like having it on in the background but I just proved to myself how distracting it is.  LOL!! 

Hey don't forget about our September challenge at LLC!


Thanks for stopping by and checking out my long-winded post.  LOL! I hope you get some crafty time this weekend.  Maybe more on the horizon while we're burying ourselves in winter again.  Ick!
