A new day and some new cards

This week I have been thinking of fairies.  I have used my Linda Ravenscroft  'Enchanted'  CD to have lots of fun making cards from the beautiful images.  I love shopping for and using best quality crafting materials and using this to produce my cards.

I have used Bo Bunny 'Gabrielle' paper for the backgound of the card and on the inside panels.  The fairy image is 7 layers of decoupage  which have been glittered with Glitz Stickles.  The ribbons are from my stash and the butterfly I think is from K & Co.   I have made the large blue poppy flowers using two of my punches.  The smaller 'lace' flowers are made using a Martha Stewart punch.  These have been coloured with promarkers and sprayed with glimmer mist and decorated with Glitz Stickles.  I have also used my Martha Stewart punch to make the paper lace ribbons.

Another Fairy Card

This is another card using the 'Enchanted' CD.  I have used Cameo toppers and matching backing paper from the CD.  Some of the flowers have been made by me using various punches and others are from my stash,  as is the seam binding ribbon and peeloffs.  I have used a couple of Tim Holtz ticket sentiments on the inside of the card

I dream in flowers

A most beauttiful image from the same CD, using 6 layers of decoupage, which have been glittered with stickles.   Bo Bunny papers have again been used and I have made the flowers.  I have used a doiley cutting die and the ribbon is satin and from my stash.  Paper lace using a Martha Stewart punch and a quote reproduced by McMahon Five  Designs.

A zodiac fairy

This is the Linda Ravenscroft 'Cancer'  Zodiac Fairy and I have again used matching paper and insert.  The popies have been made by me and the lace flowers.  The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley.  I have made the paper lace doillies using a cutting die and the rest is from my stash.    I have used stickles to glitter the fairy.

More fairies??

Yes more faries.  This is on of my favourite images and I so enjoy using this.  It is ultra cute.   The image is 'Fairy in an English Teacup' from Mo Manning and is a digi stamp.  I have coloured this with promarkers, added glitter and mounted on to pretty spotty card.   I have used my punches and have made the faded vintage flower.  Flower making is a  bit of an obsession with me at present.  I love, love, love to make them.  Ribbon and vintage seam binding, pins and gems have been used from my stash plus some Prima flowers and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.  There are the most fabulous goodies available for crafting with at present and the choice is getting better and better.  Bang goes the bank balance again.  I have used ticket sentiments from Tim Holtz.

'Cherry' by Mo Manning

Not a fairy but just as cute.  This is a digi image from Mo Manning which I coloured and glitter and mounted onto this card.  It is a delightful image.  I have used vintage style backing paper and flowers and ribbons and pins and hearts from my stash.  Lots of work goes into the making of each of these cards and they give me great joy.  I hope you like them too.

Last but not least - Teddy Bea

The delightful Teddy Bea from Teddy Bo & Co is a digital stamp and again is coloured by me using promarker pens and then glittered with 'Stickles.   I have used plain card for the backing of this image and this has all been embossed.  Lots of flowers and ribbon has been used on this card.  The image is mounted on a hand crochet doilley.   I have used a variety of cutting dies for background and embellishments.

Phew this is the end for today.  Lots of work to show and I hope you like it.  Please leave your comments or suggestions.   I look forward to hearing from you.
