Last of the Fairies!

This is the final card I have made (for the time being!) using the beautiful Lavinia stamps.

This time, I chose to use green Brusho with some blue ink pads and the Fairy Hive stamp with the fairy foragers.  Back to Christmas card making!

Dandelion Wishes Part II

Another fairy card and another very quick post!  Hope you like it.

Dandelion Wishes

Another card with another fairy from Lavinia Stamps.  Same techniques used with Pixie Powders and inks.  

Sorry these posts are so short but busy making Christmas cards and presents which I will show when they are eventually finished!

Fairy on a Branch

Another quick post today sharing another fairy card I've made using Lavinia stamps and brushos/pixie powders and inks.  Must admit, this is my favourite out of all the cards I have made so far with these stamps.

Fairy Hive

The card I am sharing today is the first of a few I have made using my Lavinia stamps and using blending techniques with ink.  Hope you like it.

AMD Samples - Pink Notebook

This is the final sample I have to show and have made something quite simple.

This notebook is made from three pieces of greyboard.  I am sorry but I forgot to measure it when I made it, however, if you start with the size of notepad you are going to use and add about an inch around it, that will give you the measurements for the front and back piece.  You then just need to cut a thin piece for the spine which should be the same length as the back and front - hope that makes sense!
I covered my greyboard with a piece of pink double glitz card and then layered that with pattered paper from the pink Garden Blooms pad.  I then die cut the letters to spell out notes and added some dots around them with a paint pen.
Again, I covered the inside with patterned paper, leaving a slit for the pad to be inserted.  I cut a piece of the pattered paper and scored around three of the edges to make a pocket and then glued it to the inside.  Before fixing down the patterned paper to the inside cover, pos…

AMD Samples - Blue Birdcage

Nearly at the end of the samples now and this is the final card I have to show.

I've used a scalloped card and layered it with blue double glitz cardstock (rounded at the bottom).  I took a piece of the blue Garden Blooms paper pad and tore it at the bottom right hand corner, gently rolling it apart and then inking the edges.  I took a scrap of contrasting paper from the pad and glued it behind.  I then layered this onto the card.  I fussy cut the birdcage out of another sheet of paper, shaped it gently and then added it over the original image with glue gel.
Again, using scraps from the paper pad, I die cut some flowers and made an arrangement in the bottom left hand corner with die cut leaves,berries and some smaller flowers I had in my stash.  As usual, I added glue gel thinly to the card and covered with Ice Crystals.
Finally, I cut down one of the beautiful inserts and layered it onto the same blue double glitz card and fixed it inside the card.
