My little fairy tale (6)

A fairy birthday card with stamps from Crafty Secrets.
The surprise is on the inside of the card, but I forgot to take a picture of it. The inside has paper from Websters Pages with the exact image printed on it but in reverse.
I like the layering of the Spellbinders die cut outs.
The seambinding has been coloured with Copics, it's a shame the bow is a bit wonky in the picture. I am not that good a picture taker.

My little fairy tale (4)

Not a Penny Black stamp, but another from my favourite brand Crafty Secrets.
I masked 2 stamps together to create this scene of the fairy sliding off the mushroom. Everything is coloured with pencils.
The paper is from Basic Grey Kioshi and the flowers are punched and glittered with Stickles. The one Prima flower has been sprayed green with Glimmer Mist in garden fairy green. I made a triple bow with white organza ribbon.

My little fairy tale (1)

After my last upload directly on the Ipad, I have decided to go back to my laptop. I did not like the quality of the picture and the poor options of the Blogger app. Perhaps Blogger can improve that.
However I have found the cutest stamps and I want to share some cards I have made with them.
Stamps: Penny Black
Paper: Websters Pages, watercolour card and American Crafts
Colour: Copics

Embellishments: Websters Pages Sparkles

Lillibet card making with my mother

My mother is over for Christmas and we decided to craft a bit together. 
I had bought some items from the Lillibet set by Dovecraft. These little images are just too sweet.
Not much stamping involved with this card and mother had to help with the layout and colours.
I am hoping to make more cards this week, but let 's see as there is so much we plan to do and mum gets tired quickly.

Molly Blooms boy birthday card

With another stamp from the Birthday Parade Magazine and the inspiration taken from the magazine, I created a boy birthday card. This card is a special fold and I must say that even with the explanation at hand, it still took me a while to put together. There was a lot of measuring involved, but the end result is worth the effort - if I may say so myself.
Cardstock: American Crafts and Joy! Crafts kraft cardstock.
Stamps: Molly Blooms and Lili of the Valley sentiment.
Embellishments: Molly Blooms and Marianne Design twine.
Paper: Molly Blooms Birthday Parade.
Colour: Copics.
Dies: Spellbinders
Inks: Memento ink in dark cacao brown and walnut Distress Ink.
Now waiting for one cute little boy's birthday to come up.

Molly Blooms Birthday card

I bought the new Molly Blooms Birthday Parade kit and magazine. After buying last years Christmas Carnival magazine, I was so surprised to see another one with different stamps.
The magazine is really good with so many inspirational pictures and instructions. I really love this style.
Here is my take on one of the cards in the magazine.
I used a Kraft card base and blue glitter card from my stash. The other papers come with the magazine.
Colour: Copics and Glimmer Mist.
Stamp: The cat's pyjama's.
The paper doily has had the Glimmer Mist treatment and I have put glaze on the cherry.

...and makes my way perfect.

Today it is time to share my final card with the Elisabeth Bell stamps.
She is very elegant with her hat and flowers.
Paper and Card: American Crafts Crate Paper with Paper Hearts collection, American Crafts and Royal Langnickel.
Colour: Copics, Glimmer Mist and Distress Ink.

Shiny little flowers and some paper piercing add the fine detail to this card.
The inside of the card holds a sentiment which I consider ever so true. I love this sticker pack that I bought during our holiday in Florida.
