Creative Inspirations DT New New New

Hello ladies,
Wednesday is upon us and that means
it is time for another challenge over at
Creative Inspirations,
a nice and easy one for you,
New Year, New Products!!
We want to see you create
with some of that new stash you got
from Santa or bought for yourself
in the last couple of weeks!!

I have had new deliciousness overload!!
With Christmas and my birthday in close vicinity,
gift cards and birthday cash,
punch cards ready to be redeemed,
I tell you, I am in Crafters Heaven!!

Some of my new loot used on this project include
Distress Stickles, 2 new colours of distress ink,
the K & Co. papers, how did I ever craft without them!!?
The gorgeous vintage rose Tilda never inked until now,
and my lovely sewing machine,
sure it isn't BRAND BRAND new anymore,
but I bought it in 2010, new enough, lol.

And my beautiful insignia stamp from Kellie!!
Check them out at MDU here,
truly adds that finishing touch to the project!!
Other items used are MS punches,
beads, pins, lace, ribbon and charm from stash,
Tilda was painted with distress inks in watercolour paper,
then cut out and placed onto Gina K cardstock
that I added a shadow to in faded jeans distress ink
before placing the cut out Tilda on top.
The beautiful gardenias are from Tracey, love them!!
And the mini roses are a custom-coloured item
by yours truly, layered in glimmer mist and inks.

I am playing along with a few other
challenges this time around:
Charisma Cardz
is hosting a colour challenge of
pink, brown, cream and toffee
Crafting Life's Pieces
January Sketch #15,
gorgeous ideas from an extremely talented crafter,
Cupcake Craft Challenge
is going girly this week!!
PaperPlay Challenges
has a Precious Metals Challenge
The Pink Elephant
is hosting a birthday challenge,
and although my creation isn't overtly
it is indeed a birthday card.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my creation,
I hope you have a moment to hop over to
Creative Inspirations
and see the other samples,
they are dreamy!!
Oh, to be in their craft rooms
with that new stuff, fun fun fun!!
Take Care,

Oh this is so lovely and elegant and very "girly." I just got this stamp too and you make me want to color it right now. The flowers are arranged so prettily and I love the little butterfly hiding in there. Tilda is colored beautifully! Great job!
