Thank you so much to Paul and Siri for asking me to join this fantastic Design Team!! I'm truly honered and proud.
Here is my first creation I like to share with you all. This is a babycard and the sentiment translate to "Congratulations with a little heartbraker". I've colored this little cutie with my Copics. The papers are Maja Design, from Sweden. I love this paper and use them a lot :) Punches are from MS. To embellish I have of course used gorgeous flowers from WOC; 15mm Open Roses, 10mm Open Roses, 6mm Closed Rosebuds and Cherry Blossoms Flowers :) I put some Stickles Star Dust on them to add a little sparkle.
I hope you all have a great Tuesday and thanks for stopping by :)) Hugs, elsi

Woohoo! Bev’s made a start on her Christmas cards lol – here’s my first. And I think this card shows that roses are perfect for Christmas cards too :)
I have used Basic Grey Capella papers again (the pad was still out on my desk from the weekend), and have coloured the image with distress inks. The punched border was done by using just the corner punch off the ATP set. Love the effect. I have stitched around the papers after distressing then applied Stickles for a lil bit of bling. The flowers I used are 15mm roses and 20mm roses that I have spritzed with Glimmer Mist that I mixed up myself to get the colour to match the card – unfortunately it don’t look good in the pictures but is a perfect match in real life.
Thanks so much for stopping by today,

I have been asked so many times how I attach flowers and other embellishments to my cards. I use Crafters Pick Incredibly Tacky Glue, I could not make a card without it!!
I apply the glue (which is really thick and grabs almost right away even though it’s not dry – and it dries clear) with a pokey tool. I apply a good dollop.
I also use it for punched leaves, just a little is needed for these. Then I poke them in with a pair of tweezers where I have gaps in the arrangement.
I also use it to attach charms and anything else to the front of the card.
And the finished card
Gulp, I’ve attempted my first video. I've had so many requests on how I tie my bows that I thought I would start off with something quick and simple lol. I have used the new 25mm Organza Ribbon that is now in stock at Wild Orchid Crafts.Thanks for stopping by,
