LOTV AND HANGLAR

Well to make the most of my crafting time I  made 2 cards yesterday.  I never even got out my pj's as it was so miserable!!


The first of my cards is for the challenge over on LOTV which is themed I Believe In Fairies, using the gorgeous sketch over on Sunday Sketch and Stamp and also for the challenge over on A Spoonful Of Sugar which is Flower Power.



I used my LOTV Pom Pom fairy and coloured her in with my promarkers and stickles on her wings.  I then cut her out with my plain square nestie.  Cardstock used is Regal Rose from Stampin Up as is the ribbon.  The dp I have used is from Papermania Blueberry Hill which is one of my favourites (might have to try and get some more!)  The sentiment was part of a fairy sayings stamp set sent to me by my friend Amy, pink pearls are Hobbycraft and the flowers are all from wildorchidcrafts.

The second of my cards I made for the challenge over on Lovely-Haenglar-Only which is themed Dots.


I used one of my favourite Hanglar stamps and coloured her in with promarkers and cut out with my Labels Four nestie.  Cardstock used is Chocolate Chip from Stampin Up.  The lighter brown and large circled dp is from cherryarte.com called Seasonal Raindrops which is the same double sided sheet.  The blue and brown dotted dp is from Making Memories Vintage Findings called Brown Wallpaper Findings.  The brown lacey ribbon I found in my stash, brown pearls from hobbyhouse.co.uk and flowers are from Magnolia.

A GIRLIE FAIRYTALE

I'm making the most of my crafting time over the next few days as Seren has gone camping with her daddy until Wednesday then she will finally return to me Thursday night.  I am missing her though!!


I thought I would enter the new sketch over on Sketch 'n' Stash with my chosen winning stamp Simply Sassy Fairy Tale from Funky Kits as I won the Sugar Nellie Facebook challenge which was themed Men Cards!  I am also entering this into the gorgeous challenge over on Totally Papercrafts which is Pink and Girlie (right up my street as pink is my favourite colour to work with!)



I coloured in the image with promarkers and added cotton candy Stickles to her shoes, I then cut her out with my circular nestie.  The dp I have used was from one of my favourite Stampin Up Designer Paper Packs called Sweet Always but unfortunately this has now been discontinued as its now 2 years old! Cardstock used also from SU is Regal Rose as is the ribbon.   The lace was from my stash, flowers from wildorchidcrafts, gems from Treasures by Shabby Chic, sentiment from craftworkcards.  I also used my Martha Stewart Arches punch for the fancy edging.
