Welcome Anita …





Morning all, hope you had a really lovely weekend. The weather has been glorious here, it’s been so lovely and it cheers you up for sure!
Make sure you pop back at midday for the winner of our May challenge and I’ll be announcing the new challenge for June

***

I’m taking a break from sneak peeks today as I have a new Guest Designer to introduce to you…
I’m delighted to welcome Anita to Lili of the Valley, and wait until you see what she’s made for us

My name is Anita Izendoorn, I live in the Netherlands
Stamping is my passion, and I love colours, shapes and figuring out how I can put together a nice little project
I like giving demos and workshop programs. I design for Marianne Design and Noor and find it great fun to combine them together with my stamps
I have my own style and many come and see my creations on my blog " Warme Groetjes" . 
Besides my hobby I really love my family and you can find me regularly enjoying nature
I love music and dancing and try to make every day a special one

***

Here is the first card that Anita has made for us …
 
Anita 1 June - Coffee Break
Anita 1 June - Coffee Break 2
Anita 1 June - Coffee Break 3
Anita 1 June - Coffee Break 4


 


Here’s Anita’s supplies list…
Vellum stamped with  Stamp K Corners Vintage Florals with white embossing powder
Coffee Break stamped on watercolour paper and coloured with distress markers
Go Kreate Frilly Concentrics Square 5 punch
Set of 28 Vintage Labels – Occasions 
Image and sentiment stamped with Hero Arts Soft Granite shadow ink
Noor Vintage Flourishes and swirl
The cups are decorated with a beautiful embossing powder so they shine.

You can almost taste the coffee girls!!

Isn’t it just GORGEOUS, I hope you like it
I’m sure you’ll give Anita a warm welcome and don’t forget that all your comments go into our weekly candy draw to win a £10 voucher

You can see more of her work on her own blog here and there will be more from Anita throughout June

See you at lunchtime for the new challenge, enjoy your morning!

  12. Fijn dat je het team komt versterken, kan ik zo af en toe ook commentaren geven in het Nederlands.
    Engels is niet mijn sterkste punt.
    De kaart die je gemaakt hebt is prachtig. De kleuren en het vellum met de geembosde bloemen vind ik super.
