Fairies and their wonderland


Oh dear! We are all a bit slow this morning!  It's dark now when we get up and seems to take us all that little bit longer to get started, to be honest, I don't even think my eyes are fully open right now.

The image I am bringing to you today is from Emerald Faerie Garden, I'm not sure you can get these images anymore, which is a great shame but makes it even more special for me as a crafter to have the pleasure of its continued use.

I wanted to give this Faerie a cosy feeling of sleeping under the stars so did a dark background and used frantage to light it up.

I surrounded the image with Petal Lu flowers and used a sentiment from Whimsy Stamps.

Copics used:

Skin: E000, E04, E11, E21, E00
Faerie: Y35, Y38, YR68, E08, E18, G20, Y11, Y00
Mushroom: R56, R85, RV34, R83, R81, G20, Y11, Y00
Background: B39, C7, BV25, C5, C3, C1

Challenges I am entering this into are:

Aud Sentiments Challange - Use a Die Cut & a Sentiment

Star Princess

Hi there! 

The best bit about my craft time today was my daughter sitting beside me making her little brother a card too.  We discussed this one at great length, she wanted pink hair, I wanted blue, she wanted a blue dress and I wanted yellow! We did however agree on the colour of the stars!!

I decided to use Star Princess from Whimsy Stamps in the Kirsten Winkelbauer Collection, my daughter doesn't realise just how many of these stamps I have and will be thrilled to bits as over the next few weeks they will all be used.  You can get these stamps either from Whimsy Stamps or for UK Crafters Dies to Die For.

So, moving swiftly on.......

Star Princess

Got to call me Elliot!!


Well this week has been World Book Week, but I'm sure you already knew that.   You've probably been frantic all week about that costume you have to make or buy for the 1 day of the year every child wants to dress up!!!

Josephine is going as that clock from Beauty and the Beast, Cogsworth is it?  So Daddy has been making her costume all week out of cardboard and my dining table now looks like a clock with all the new paint work!! gasp!!  Ben is going as Harry Potter (his was easy, costume shop and a shed load of money).

Ben however, has had relevant homework too! Write about your favourite book and draw a picture.  Ben's favourite book is Pete's Dragon.  'Mummy, get your stamps out!'  I obliged, I created and we decided the teacher would know for deffinate that he didn't do it!!!!

So, we made a card instead!!

This little cutie is called Dragon Party and is from the Crissy Armstrong Collection at Whimsy Stamps, (UK Crafters, you can get these from Dies to Die For).

 This is as close to Elliot as we could get, granted the party hat and maybe the balloons shouldn't be there but hec, this is for kids afterall!!

So, copics used:

Dragon Green: G28, YG67, YG45, YG23, YG11, C7
Dragon Purple: BV08, BV17, BV13
Balloons: YR07, YR16, Y38
Background: B93, B41, B21, B00, B000

I could't make up my mind if this was for a little boy or a girl, but figured flowers would be nice anyway.  These are Petal Lu Flowers.

 As you can see, I matched the inside of the card to the outside.

I hope you like what I have created.

Sending Lots of Smiles your way!

Hello Again!

Wow! Am I having fun! I've recently got my hands on a few of the Roberto Rascals stamps from C.C. Designs and having so much fun.  Today I am using Swingin, such an adorable image.  Every morning my children make me watch children's TV and we always end up watching 'Piny', I don't mind it at all, what I find myself doing is studying the colours of all the characters, their hair colour, the colours they wear and thus I've decided colourful hair is 'IN'!

You tell me what you think.......

Don't they look the business!! haha!

Copics I have used here are:

Skin: E000, E04, E11, E21, E00, R20, R11
Blue Hair: B05, BG05, BG01, B00
Pink Hair: RV17, RV06, RV04, RV55, RV02
Green Shirt: YG23, YG03, YG00
Yellow Dress: Y38, Y08, Y11
Orange Shorts: YR16, Y17

I decided once again, to stick with a CAS card and just use a sentiment stamp from PolkaDoodles.  I think I blinked or sneezed at that point, because it went a bit wonky, but I'm happy to work with wonky once in a while!
