Mermaid under the sea

Hello,
not posted for a while as we've been on holiday and having work done on the house. I'm also in the process of moving my craft room to a bigger room - in the meantime half of it is packed up so getting to my stash is a bit tricky!

This is my DT card for the Fairy and Unicorn Challenge blog, the theme is anything goes with the option of under the sea. Fortunately I managed to find a few things to make the card, so it's a quite simple one this month.


What I used

White 8x8 card blank
Tonic oval dies, plain and scalloped edge
Neenah Solar White stamping card
Papermania dark blue and light blue card for matting and layering
Creative Expressions Raindrops embossing folder to try and indicate being underwater
The images were all stamped using stamps which came with various magazines
Memento Marine Blue ink for stamping
Joy! diamond effect gems
Three Kings Ribbon in opal to cross the corners and trail from the main gem.

I hope you like the card, please leave a comment if you've time, any are really appreciated. Please also join us at the Fairy and Unicorn Challenge this month.

Fairy in the clouds

Hello,
here's my card for the Fairy and Unicorn Challenge for June, the theme is Mythical/Mystical/Anything goes. This month is just for fun as we have no sponsor so I decided to use something from my stash that I'd not used before. I'm trying to do this now as I've so much unused stuff!


What I used

White 8x8 card blank
American Crafts The Color of Memories background paper
Hobbycraft Periwinkle pearlescent card
Anna Marie Designs white stamping card
Fairy stamp and sentiment stamp from my stash - I think free with a magazine
Memento Grape Jelly ink
Tonic Trailing star die
Sizzix oval and rectangular pin prick dies
The small stars were from the Tonic die cuts and the larger one from a punch
I bought a Misti stamping platform a while ago as I'd tried stamping a couple of years ago and given up as I was rubbish at it. Using the platform has really improved my stamping.

I hope you like the card, please leave a comment if you've time - all are gratefully received! Please also join us at the Fairy and Unicorn Challenge this month.

Fairy at the bottom of the garden

Hello,

This is my design team card for the Fairy and Unicorn Challenge for May. The theme is anything goes with the option of Fairy at the bottom of the garden.

As we had no specific sponsor this month I decided to have a play with CraftArtist2 as I've not had time to do so for ages. I created it using mainly the Moonbean Forest digikit and printed it on to card which I then mounted on to a cream 8 x 8 card blank.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you like it and that you'll join us at the Fairy and Unicorn Challenge this month.
