Princess Faerie Silhouette.

Hello friends and followers.
Sharing a  card with you today, I must confess I was not a fan of  Fairies, WOW change my mind since these pretty dies came along from Poppystamps May release.

Thought I would create a woodland scene with "Princess Faerie"  as a silhouette.. I`m sure she would look  just as pretty with no wings, as a child dancer.

I have die cut three fairies to add depth, wings have been cut with sparkly black card.. I used foam sticky tape  on the back.

In this photo is my very old "Angelina Fusible Fibre"  you get in a  packet, you pull some fibres out and lay a thin layer onto half a sheet of folded copy paper, sandwich the fibres by folding the  paper over, then using a med heat iron onto the paper, iron the fibres together, this makes it fused together.. I adhered my wings with pva glue and cut around with scissors.

Added a touch of blue ink to the white background.
These fibres give a lovely delicate look to her wings. I adhered them to the silhouette with pva glue.

I grounded her onto the Dotted Curve, stamped with the new Fairy Greetings.. Swaying Birch has been cut in grey card and inked some shading in grey, Chirping Birds in the branch`s. 
Magnificent Mini Faeries  with Mushrooms and Toadstools .
dotted a few crystal gems. finished card size 5.1/2" x 6.1/2".
Hope you like this first attempt with Faerie`s..

Butterfly Gate Fold Card..

Good afternoon friends and visitors, wish today would make it`s mind up! sun shine and showers.

I started with card size 6"x 12" to make this gate-fold card..finished size 6" x 4.1/4" closed.

Used Concord & 9th die Butterfly Cards.. Butterfly Beauty Stamp set.
For this butterfly, I used the edger die & fancy die..
 I fussy cut a plain stamped image, using a mix of  Versa Magic  inks on the stamp and same mix I cut a fancy butterfly. these I adhered in the center of the butterfly. 
Sentiment is from the same stamp set.

I have made a frame for the inside with Amy Designs "Christmas Card Set"  Memory Box Swirling Stitches for interest  and this lovely open Butterfly " Floral & Flutter Dies " Concord & 9th.

There is quite a few ways to use these Stamp and Die get some good ideas if you google them.

Rather that leave  square corners, I used my We-R-Memorykeepers corner rounders..

Have A Wonderful Day.

Good morning friends and visitors, wish our May weather would get a bit warmer, lovely sunshine with a chilly wind..

White Wedding Card.

I purchased this Tattered Lace "Lace Insert Stepper" die set a few weeks ago from Create and Craft.
I did cut it out to try it.. Not an easy die to cut!! had to run through my machine many times and use shims...I wasted two A4 sheets of pearlescent card, running through that many times it moved in the die.
I had more success using an  A4 laminate  sheet..I placed both the card and die inside, this does seem to stop any movement and adds a shim.
I love this die!! so will have to keeping it!.. 
I have used A4 White Pearlescent and Oyster Pearl card..My Oyster Pearl card is a lot thinner so a lot easier to die cut.
Both have been sat around a couple of weeks so decided to make them as Wedding cards for my box. hence no personalised  details.

Both cards are identical..
Tattered Lace "Bride & Groom 2016" .... I have cut two for each card, adhered these together to add depth, I have used  sticky back foam to raise the bride and groom, swirls on her dress have been glittered, bouquet touch of pink and green with pens & glitter..
I have also added a touch of colour to this pretty TL "Mini Cherry Blossom"  tiny bow by Memory Box ..Open Studio "Stitched Bows"

TL Congratulations die and "Have A Wonderful Day" from their "Sentiment Borders" 
Side panels come  with the Stepper set.

Oyster Pearl card  for this one.

Think you tell the difference between White & Oyster now they are together below.

Get Well Soon.

Good morning friends and visitors.. 

 I needed a get well card for my friend as she has been in hospital for an operation, she also  loves  pink  and bright colours..

Love this layout using Poppystamps Pretty Stitches border die. Below I have showed how I did this double one in pink.. 

I needed a strip of card 5.1/2" long and wide enough to handle, top picture show one cut I have done and where to place your die for the second cut,  next picture show the pretty border made.  
Last picture using my Misty stamping tool for perfect placement stamping on my card blank 5.1/2" x 5.1/2" ..  

This shows all my die cuts I am going to use on this card,  I do tend to make up as I go along and change my mind! as we do.
White card 3.1/2" deep 5.1/2" wide I have used the border die as shown. I have adhered the two border pink strips in place.

Here I have arranged all my decorations I intend to use on the card, NOT glued anything down! till I make sure I like it,  you`ll see on the top and bottom photos I cut 1.2" from  the top of my pink card above the white panel, as to me it did`nt look right, now seem more symmetrical.. 

This  is the finished card, Pearl in the center of these beautiful "Stitched Poinsettias Trio" I have used  white card one  flower set and two large petals in pink and green to layer up this flower,  Freida Leaf, glued onto  Stitched Scallop Circle by Memory Box "Open Studio".
Pink dots along the boarder and in the flower background, BoBunny Blush double dots pen. 

Thank you for stopping by, I hope I have not bored you with this post. Pam x
