Wishes - Something Magical

Hi All,

For this week over at Incy Wincy Challenge Blog we were given gorgeous images and our design teamn got a specific image from the set so that we can showcase them. I was given the above image which is simply adorable.

It was given to us by Stitchy Bear Stamps who is at: http://stitchybearstamps.com/shop/.

I used my colour pencils to colour her in and some sharpie colours for some intricate details.

I used a cream coloured cardstock and found the purple floral layer and added that as the first base. I then used a yellow tinge paper stock on top of the purple layer and then mounted the image with double sided foam tape to bring her up a bit.

I used a stencil for the star set and used my sharpie's to outline them. I used bling in the little stars to make them shine. I used brads in the corners some simple floral effect.

Being a fairy I used 'Wishes' as the sentiment.

Please feel free to comment as all feedback is gratefully received and appreciated.

Thank you for visiting my blog.

Debutante - Fancy Fold

Hi All,

For this week's challenge at Incy Wincy Challenge Blog is a fancy fold card. I have been so interested in easel cards once I saw them. I decided to use this image that was kindly given to us by Cowgirl Up Stamps, at Stitchy Bear Stamps.


I began with a yellow tinge cardstock and followed the instructions on how to make an easel card and came to realise they are not that difficult to make.
I utilised a program I have been given by Greg on my laptop to colour in the image. The colour of the dress I found to be awesome and so gorgeous.
I layered the top of the card with a red paperstock I had on hand and then some textured paper with heart print all over.
I then used my pink metallic pen, which I must admit are my favourite colouring mediums, and outlined the thicker hearts to give some effect.
I used my gold metallic pen to outline the layers and the outer layer of the card.
I had a little trouble with the sentiment but with some help from my hubby, Greg, I think 'Debutante' is perfect for this card.
I used some self adhesive glitter backing and added some fancy paper stock as the backing and used double sided foam tape to give it some lift and used some double sided foam strip squares to give the sentiment some lift. I finalised the card with some bling.

Please feel free to comment as all feedback is gratefully received and appreciated.
