Under the sea

this is my card for the July Fairy and Unicorn Challenge, the theme as usual is anything goes with the optional theme of under the sea. There's no sponsor this month so I thought I'd have a play again with my Craft Artist 2 as I knew I had a digikit with a mermaid in it.

What I used

Craft Artist Fantasy collection 1 and Myth and Legends to create the background and the mermaid topper
8 x 8 white card blank
Rainbow miri card for a mat
White card for a mat
Spectrum Noir sparkle pen to add a bit of sparkle to the mermaid's tail
Papermania ink to edge the card and stamping the sentiment which is a magazine freebie
Spellbinders die to cut the sentiment out
Blue American Crafts sparkly brads which looked a bit like the colour of the sea
White net ribbon

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

Spring flowers

here's my card for the Fairy and Unicorn Challenge for June, the theme is anything goes with the option of the White Witch. This month we're sponsored by the wonderful Ike's Art and I've used the Blossom image. I took it into Craft Artist 2 to produce the background paper which I lightly coloured, and also used it for the main image.

What I've used

8x8 white card blank
Pink card for the mats
Pink organza ribbon
Spectrum Noir alcohol markers: PP1, PP2, LG1
Sue Wilson's Happy Birthday die for the sentiment

I hope you like the card, please leave a comment if you have time.

Please also join us at the Fairy and Unicorn Challenge this month, and thanks to Ike's Art for sponsoring us this month.

Special birthday cards

here are three birthday cards and boxes made for friends' birthdays, including a 60th and a 70th.

They follow a similar theme using a Crafter's Companion rose embossing folder, highlighted with gilding wax, vellum, flowers and die cuts: Sizzix/Tim Holtz leaves, Sue Wilson sentiment and Tonic butterflies, names and ages.

The recipients were delighted with the cards and boxes, so I'll probably use a similar design for future special occasions.

Thanks for stopping by, please leave a comment if you've time.
