Lili of the Valley GDT and Sneak Peek
Hey Everybody!!! It's time for another LOVT challenge! This is my first week as a Guest Designer and it just happens to be time for some sneak peeks of a new collection that is coming in March. Yay!!! I'm so excited about this release. The images are just darling!!! No surprise there :-)
I'm sure you'll want to see what the DT girls have come up with. If you haven't been there already, be sure to visit the LOTV Challenge Blog for all of the details of the challenge and the samples from the DT girls. They're sure to knock your socks off!!!
This week's challenge is to create a card using circles or dots...or in my case, both! When I heard what the theme would be, I knew instantly that I wanted to make a circle easel card. I just happened to have the circle shaped Spellbinders Grand Nesties and they were perfect for this card. Here it is...I hope you enjoy it :-)
Here's the front of the card. Because I had so many circles and dots on this card, I decided to cut the image into a rectangle so it would stand out more. Isn't this image of a little bunny cupcake party just the cutest thing??? It really makes me want a snack...Mmm Mmm Good!
The dp's are from Jillibean Soup "Blossom Soup" and they're my favorites right now. All cs is by Bazzill. The beautiful and perfectly matched little flowers are from WOC. The dotted ribbon, lace, doily, and gems are from my stash. The gems started out clear, but I coated them with a Copic marker so they would match my color scheme. I roughed up all of the edges with my Zutter Distrezz-It-All. It's very noisy, but I love it. I rubbed the edges with a bit of Ranger DI in 'frayed burlap' to give it a bit of age. The perimeter of the large dp circles got a coat of stardust Stickles for a little bit of shine - it's hard to see on camera but it really make a difference up close.
The sentiment on the front cover is by Magnolia. The sentiment on the inside is by Stampendous. This sentiment was cut and backed using two EK Success punches. Lastly, I painted the image using watercolor with Ranger Distress Inks.
I really hope you enjoyed my first project as a LOTV Guest Designer. This is something I've wanted to do for quite some time now and I'm so fortunate to have been given the opportunity. I truly enjoyed working with this image and making this card. If you have a moment, I would really appreciate it if you would leave me a comment letting me know what you think about my project. Your comments always bring a smile to my face. Rest assured, I read each and every one of them :-)
