A little fairy

Well I'm sitting in my craft room and the task for today is make some Christmas cards, I do this every year and end up driving myself daft in December because I don't have enough. So how many have I done you may ask and the answer is a great whole one! I had to tidy my desk and of course found a few things that had been pushed to one side to carry on with something else and I also found a brand new die that didn't get put away when it came, so I just had to use it.
This is a 6x6 card and the embossing is done with another new buy the Cascading Hearts embossing folder by Sue Wilson, I think this is lush and will get lots of use. At the same time I bought the folder I bought the die which I think looks a little like a fern, it's quite delicate and again will get lots of use.

I'm afraid I did cheat with the image as it isn't stamped but a preprinted one, this is cut out with a Spellbinders gold die as is the mat. I have added glitter to the fairy wings, bouquet and tiara but not sure it shows in the picture. The whole thing is finished off with a white bow and some gems.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:
Totally Papercrafts - Use Glitter
Jo's Scrap Shack- Things with Wings
Cas-ual Fridays - Embossing
Brown Sugar - Anything Goes

See you tomorrow! x

Ali-Craft Challenge White on White

Over on the Ali-Craft challenge blog this time it's White on White, so I've used some dies and embossing folders with Centura Pearl card.
The embossing folders used are from Crafters Companion andthe dies are from Spellbinders for the mats and Cheery Lynn for the butterflies.

CD Sunday - Stripey

Morning all, Sunday again so that means CD Sunday and a new challenge. This week it's Stripey, I guess it is a nice easy task this week.
This card is an 8x8 and is printed onto matt photo paper, I like the rich look printing onto this type of paper gives and with a cd with images as cute as this cards are just a doddle to do. This image is taken from the Megapage section and I've made it fit in with the card I had in mind to do, I like to decoupage my images and this was easy to cut out as there aren't any really fiddly bits, the sentiment is a LOTV stamp stamped with Perfect Medium and embossed with turquoise embossing powder.

Hope you can come over and join us this week, we love to see you.

I'm entering this into the Crafting Musketeers challenge which this week is Pretty Pastels, also The Crafter's Cafe which is Birthday Celebrations and Sunshine Mail which is Anything Goes
