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.

Welcome to Spring

Hello there,
well hopefully Spring is only around the corner now! After all the snow and rain it's been great to have a few sunny days.

This is my card for the April Fairy and Unicorn Challenge, this month it's anything goes with the option of Spring is in the air. This month we're sponsored by the amazing IkesArt, and I've chosen the Seeds image which you can buy here.




What I used

White 8x8 card blank.
Green Tonic Craft Perfect card stock.
Tonic Leaves embossing folder brushed with Memento New Sprout ink.
IkesArt Seeds images coloured as follows:
Promarkers: Black, Leaf and Grass.
Spectrum Noirs: LY1, GB6 and TB3.
The sentiment came free with a magazine and is stamped using Memento Cottage Ivy with a border stamped using a Card-io leaf stamp using the New Sprout ink.
I finished it off with a green ribbon bow from my stash.

I hope you like it, please leave a comment if you can - all are greatly received!
