Stamp Fairy Monday Challenge DT Project and more....

Hooooray! Monday!
So for my first card today
A lovely Stamp Fairy Challenge this week we have a fabby sketch!

 I have made my card using Lenny Cupcakes
 I just love Lenny and well who does not love cupcakes?

I have coloured the image with Distress inks as this is my favourite colouring medium
and I have used some Christmas papers that have this lovely dotty swirls on the other side.
some Kraft card colour with distress inks too!
core colour card and glossy accents and a fabulous white gen pen!
I used my lovely nesties for the centre instead of a circle and a few mini pearls.

I as always love to play along with some other challenges:


Please come and Play and also be inspired by my team members creations!


OK for my second card today
I have been playing with none other that the Vagabond!
YAY!! I have used the Tim Holtz die Fanciful Flight, I cut it out of 2 different papers and one out of recycled acetate packaging and I have to say the packaging was mega thick and the Vagabond just glided through like a hot knife through butter... and all at the press of a button!

also cute some flower out on it and the punched a border, glued the butterfly pieces together with glossy accents and used a clothes peg to hold it together until dry, glued it to the white card with glossy accents and used some on the body too! 

  and here you can see the depth of the wings 

And some Challenges for this card too!

I also want to add my card for the Stamper Girl but can not find where to add it DOH!

Great to see you today hugs Samantha :0)

  3. Gorgeous cards hun - that butterfly is amazing!
    I see you've managed to find the linky on Stampergirl's blog...Dalis was a bit late adding it - she had an accident she slipped and fell on some ice, so there was a bit of a delay.

  18. This was actually the reason I came over here today, to say how much I loved your Lenny Cupcakes card on the challenge blog. I really love how you've coloured his cheeks with the little pink patch and white dots. Beautiful. Really glad blogger is back up now, I was lost without it, but annoyed some of my posts have vanished or edits been lost. Doh!!! Still, we're back again now. I guess it can't be perfect all the time. We'll just have to appreciate it a bit more now !! Annette xx
