By LORI Designs: Little Beans Olive

Hi everyone!

I have some awesome news to share with you ... I am honoured and beyond excited to now be a By LORI Designs design team member!  Woo-hoo!! A big shout out to the wonderful Lori Boyd for inviting me to work with her adorable images - thank you so much sweet girl (...and I don't mind admitting that I'm quite nervous - have you seen the talent on the BLD team?).

So to mark this very momentus occasion, I have a card to share using one of the brand new released BLD digi stamps called "Little Beans Olive".  I chose Olive to colour up first as I just couldn't resist her beaming smile - she looks SO happy!  I paired her with some yummy papers from the Echo Park Country Drive line and followed Karen's Sweet Sketch Sunday Challenge 150.  I also made some  roses from Sew Sweet felt using my MFT Die-namics mini rolled roses dies (still having problems rolling these, lol!).

Copic markers
Echo Park 12x12 'Country Drive' paper (CD16004, CD16005, CD16008)
Kraft cardstock
Felt and Baker's Twine (from Sew Sweet)
MFT Die-namics: Branches with Leaves and Mini Rolled Roses (from MMSC)
Spellbinders Nestabilities Eyelet Circles

Thanks so much for dropping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!

  14. congrats on the new dt sweetie! Gorgeous card as always ; )
    The problem with rolling the felt roses with the mft die i think may just be down to the die itself, although ive seen hundreds of peeps use them. I use a sizzix bigz die, the petals are wider so easier to roll. Maybe that's why, i dont know but they look fab to me anyway!
