World Card Making Day Blog Hop – Day Three

Welcome to the World Card Making Day blog hop, the hop runs from 2nd to 6th October and today is day three.

There are10 different participants each day and each day is started by the host of the hop…Gill McCall.  If that’s where you started out and you’ve just arrived here from Liz's Blog then you are on the right track. However, if you have arrived here by chance and would like to join in then you need to start back at the beginning…Gill’s Blog.

Here’s my card:

Lili of the Valley Christmas Card (5)

I bought some lovely new dies at the weekend and I’ve been dying to have a play with them. It’s a set of Marianne Dies (a bauble and a star). I bought them in Hobbycraft and surprisingly they were as cheap as anywhere I had seen them on the internet! Now for anyone who has read my blog before you will know I like to get that extra mile out of my stash and not just use things the way they were intended, so here I have die cut four of the baubles, embossed each with gold EP and then cut them in half and used them to create this really rather fancy frame….and I’m quite pleased with the result…even if I do say so myself!

To this I’ve added a Lili of the Valley stamped image (coloured with ProMarkers), a Pink Gem sentiment, a square of red card and some Docrafts Daisy and Dandelion patterned paper, oh and a few pearls too, which I coloured with a ProMarker so they would match the colour of the coat. I also had a few scraps left over so I’ve decorated the inside of the card as well.

I hope you like what I made and it would be lovely if you left me a comment so I know you stopped by (not just because of the fab prizes on offer…lol).

Now your next hop stop is Anita where you will find another fabulous creation.

I would also like to enter this card into Lili of the Valleys Ideas to Inspire World Card Making Day giveaway competition.

  13. Brilliant idea with the bauble punch, clever girl makes me want to pinch eh borrow the ideal lol. Thanks for sharing your lovely creation Pamela x

  14. This is absolutely gorgeous Lisa and sweet at the same time. LOTV is one of those stamp companies that I adore - I want every one of their images and I don't own any. Being in the US, they are a little costly for me so I just have to gaze longingly whenever they are used. This image is so adorable. I have never heard of Marianne Dies, but you can bet I will be checking them out - this one looks gorgeous! I love how you made the frame - very clever!

    I am a new follower of your sweet blog -I follow so many already but I could not help myself :) Hope to spend lots of time here in the future.
