LOTV Sneak Peek and New Products at Wild Orchid Crafts!

Hello crafting friends!!! I'm back from vacation and now I need a vacation from my vacation haha! We were exhausted when we got home.  Our cruise went to Belize, Roatan, and Cozumel.  I got way too much sun even though I loaded on the sun screen.  We had a good time, but I am glad to be home!
When I got home, I found that I had lots and lots of new absolutely gorgeous images from Lili of the Valley.  These new girls will be coming out on June 14th, so get your computers ready! Have you enjoyed all the sneak peeks so far?  Every last one is super cute I promise you that!  This particular image I used today is Emma - Shoes, Shoes, Shoes! 

This new release has a cute little Milly character also, that I just looooove. I will show a card with her very soon!
Card Ingredients:

Stamps:  Lili of the Valley - Emma - Shoes, shoes, shoes
Inks:  Prisma Pencils and Gamsol
Paper:  Webster's Pages
Tools:  MS Frond Punch, Quikutz Photo Corner,  Sewing Machine
Embellies:  25mm and 15mm Pale Peach Classic Color Range Roses, 25mm Aqua Classic Color Range Wild Roses, 10mm White Open Roses, White Hip Rosebuds, Pearl Spray, Slider Buckle, 5mm Self Adhesive Pearl all from WILD ORCHID CRAFTS!  The little heart charm is from a friend and I added a little doily and tulle also.

These are a few of the newer colors of roses that Wild Orchid Crafts is carrying now. LOVE the soft peach color and I am always using this gorgeous aqua colors, so I needed them badly haha!

Now, I wanted to show you this slider buckle.  I got it in my DT kit the other day and thought it was so pretty.  The little cirles are actually just pitted and then I added some silver stickles to the centers.  I also thought it would be awesome to add some small pearls for a little different look.  You can see from the card that it is not a super tiny buckle either. Love it!  I just added the charm in the center for interest.

Wild Orchid Crafts has a lot of new products coming very soon!  A few of the new products are in right now including:

Metal Embellishments check them out HERE
Raffia Ribbon - check it out HERE  super gorgeous stuff!
Small Metal Corners that you can see HERE  these are smaller than the others and perfect for 6x6 cards!!

  6. Oh Dena, such another grojus creation, you probably don't realise but i've been a fan of yours for quite sometime now and love everything you do, i even follow your blog via email so i get to see what you have created as soon as you post it! Nice to be home eh? glad you had a break, i don't think i could have gone where you went though as Belize is a well known area for something i would hyperventilate over just by typing its name here, but it starts with a T and is a reptile, got it yet? urgh!!! i can't even abide house ones they freak me out anyway, back to the card, i love it! simple as! and have just recevied this morning my order of newbie stash from WOC too, as i cant resist buying everything they do and even though i purchased some stash last week i still put in another order when the new stash came on sale, hahaha, i think i have a worrying obsession with WOC, but its only worrying for hubby's plastic friend, lol
    Hope you're settling back in at home, and hope to see more sneak peeks of the LOTV stamps, yummy!!!
    Hugs, Vick
