Tip Toe Fairy

Tip Toe Fairy coloured with watercolour pencils.

After colouring the fairy I cut the topper using a Spellbinders die.   I used another Spellbinders die to cut a mat in some purple card.   I layered the topper onto some flowered paper then some dark purple card and finally a white card blank.  I used a Lili of the Valley circular sentiment and some Marrianne flourish die cuts to finish the card.

Winter fairy

Another lovely stamp from Wee Stamps called Winter Fairy.

I coloured her in with Spectrum-noir markers and cut her out using one of the Spellbinders label dies.  I layered it onto another Spellbinders die cut to make the topper.  I glued some snowflake paper onto a card blank and added the topper.  I also cut out two snowflake borders and bent them around the topper.  A die cut sentiment finishes the card.

Dandelion girl

I love the Wee stamps by Silvia Zet.  Dandelion girl is one of my favourite ones and she reminds me of my granddaughter Hailey,  she loves watering the flowers in the garden.

I coloured her with Copic pens but I put away the pens before I made a note of the ones used.  I cut her out and glued her to a die cut mat, I also cut out the dandelion seeds and added them.  I glued the die cut mat onto some floral card and then to a white card blank I had made using a Crafters Companion Happy Birthday die.  I made some paper flowers to finish the card.

I am going to enter this card into the following chalenges.

Christmas Snow Globe card

I made a Christmas card for my beautiful Granddaughter.   It is one of the snow globe cards from SVGHUT. 

It was such an easy card to make.  I brought the SVG file and cut the card using my Cricut Machine.   I used pink adorable scorable card and some non shed glitter card I had in my stash.  I also used some snow scene card I had at the back instead of just a circle of glitter card as suggested.  I cannot wait until Christmas so I can give it to her.

If you want to buy the SVG you can get it  here

Christmas scene cards

I have not made any cards for a while but time to start making a few Christmas cards.  I love box cards and have made a lot of them,  these two I have made several times they always look great and they fold flat for posting.

I cut them out using my Cricut machine and they are so quick to put together

I added snow scene paper to the back of the card and snowflake acetate to the front.

You can get the cutting files from craftsuprint

The unicorn one is  here

and the Christmas scene is here

Rocking horse first birthday card

It was my Granddaughter's first birthday and I made her this card.

It is such a lovely card.  I also cut out a small version to put onto a scrapbook page.
I used an SVG cutting file by Tina Fallow,  you can get it here  and Centura pearl card to make the card.

I have got myself a sewing machine and I would like to make my Granddaughter some dresses.  I had three boys and never got around to sewing anything for them.  I started by making a few bags to get used to the machine and I have some of Debbie Shores kits so I will try them before attempting a dress.  I'll let you know how I get on.

Happy crafting.
