Sweet Little Pixey

Don't you just love the sweet CC Designs pixies, so cute. This little sweetie was just perfect for my second DT card for Anyone For Anya. This weeks challenge is one of Dawny P's sketches & was a joy to follow as always. This lady sure has a talent for easy to follow sketches which can be used time & time again.

The cardstock is one of the new colours from Stampin Up, Rich Razzleberry, don't you just love the name!!
The papers are Cottage Wall which are absolutely yummy & I have almost used the sample pieces I bought when they were first released last month. The ribbon is also from the same range & is Rich Razzelberry Polkadot Grosgrain.

The image has been coloured with cpoics & cut out using the Labels One Nestabilities. I've used the Martha Stewart Doiley Punch for the centre strip. The little flowers are punched with the Stampin Up Boho Blossoms & the sentiment is punched with the SU Word Window punch. The little corners are from my stash. I've added stickles to her wings & the centres of the flowers to add a bit of sparkle.

I'm also entering this card in the following challenges

ABC Challenge - X for Xtra Dimension (the flowers & corners are pop dotted) 

Crafty Creations - We want to see you shine (sparkly stickles)

Crafty Creations - It's A Stitch Up!!

The challenge this week at Crafty Creations is 'It's a stitch up'
I have another craft stall on Saturday and am desparately trying to make as many cards as I can. I hate mass producing & prefer to take my time over my cards but I've found myself locked away in my craft room for over a week (I have come out for food & sleep lol) churning out cards. I made some similar to this one for the last sale I did & they all sold so I've made a few more.

The image is a cutie from Pink Petticoat & was one of the first digi-images I bought, way back before they were so popular. The cardstock is Stampin Up Rose Red as is the ribbon. The papers I think are Papermania Retro which I've almost run out of & I don't think they do them any more :-(

Sorry to be so predictable with my flower but these are so pretty IRL that they are becoming a bit of a trade mark for me!! The tulle is from Hobbycraft as I ran out of the piece sent to me by my lovely buddy Bernie, who incidently has set the challenge across at Crafty Creations this week.

The sentiment & ticket are both done on the computer & printed on SU cardstock.

My stitching is on the Stampin Up ribbon so hope this counts.

Thanks for looking.

Anyone For Anya Guest DT card!!

Well I was over the moon to be asked to guest DT for Anyone For Anya for the next 4 weeks and this is my first week.

The challenge this week is 'Flowers' either handmade or bought. I love finding new ways to make flowers but at the moment the ones made with my Stampin Up Punches are my favorites.

The image is Kiki from CC Designs and I've coloured her with copics. I've cut the image out using Nesties Labels 4 and dusted the edges with yellow chalk.
The cardstock is Stampin Up So Saffron and the DP is Basic Grey Cupcakes, I love the little lollies and ice-creams!! I've wrapped some yellow embriodary cord around the smaller panels before mounting the image.
The flowers have been punches using the SU Five Petal Punch finished off with a little rose and the Boho Flower Punch finished with little yellow gems in the centre.

The sentiment is computer generated.

Thanks for looking.

Mo's Challenge Blog - Dry Embossing

The challenge this week at Mo's Challenge Blog is dry embossing. I love my Cuttlebug folders & the one on this card is my latest purchase, the roses folder.

This Summer Fairy Finna image from Mo's Digital Pencil was my favorite but I've just seen the baby Fairy Kiki Mo's released today & she is so sweet!! I can feel a purchase coming on.

I've coloured this beauty with my Copica & added Stickles to her wings. I've added some Anita's 3D Gloss to the water & it's alot shinier IRL.

The cardstock is Stampin Up So Saffron & the papers are Kay & Co Wild Raspberry. I've used some Papermania pink vellum for the two corner details & punch it using my Martha Stewart Doily punch. The flower is punched with the SU Five Petal Punch using the Wild Raspberry papers & a lovely little rose at the centre. The ribbon is Bo Bunny & the button is from my stash.

Thanks for looking and any comments you leave.

Sweet Anya From Amsterdam!!

**Edited with new photos**
This week at Anyone For Anya there is a sketch to follow. I always love Dawny P's sketches as they are so easy to follow and I always keep them to refer back to, thanks Dawny!!

I've used the lovely Anya with flowers from The Greetings Farm, coloured with Copics, don't you just love her?? The cardstock is Stampin Up & I've run some through the Cuttlebug using the roses folder but you have to pretend they're tulips!!
Not sure what you call the band that is behind the image but it's a strip of flowers cut from felt material that I had in my stash. The yellow dotted ribbon is Bo Bunny & the button is a clear plastic Stampin Up button with some of the DP behind it.

The cute little tulips are cut using a Quickutz die that I have had about 3 years & shamefully this is the first time I've used it. The sentiment is from Craftwork cards.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges

Anyone For Anya - Sketch

Everybody Art Challenge - Summer

Charisma Cardz - Flowers

Stampavie & More - Summer
