Fairy Dust!

Good Morning Scrapping Cottage Friends

Today, I am sharing another whimsical die from our new collections call Magical Fantasy!  This group of dies are so much fun to work with because you can really let your imagination go wild!  I have created a fun bokeh background for my fairy.

 Designer Steps:
 1. Use a 4 x 5 1/4 inch piece of smooth white card stock. Before I stamped I used an embossing buddy to remove any oils on the card stock.  Next stamp the mushrooms with Versa Mark ink. I used black embossing powder and heat set
 2.  On the bottom of the card I stamped a field of flowers and grass with Versa Mark ink.  Then I used black embossing powers and heat set
 3.  Using 3 different colors of green ink to create the background by sponging it on
 4.  Get some unwanted card stock and the Cross-Stitched Circle dies to create your 3 different size circle stencils
 5.  Use white opaque ink and a dabber to ink inside the different size circles.  I just placed the circles randomly on my background
 6.  Using the Magical Fairy die cut out the fairy in black then trace her dress to back it with black card stock
 7.  Stamp your sentiment and layer it onto black card stock

 8.  Use a cream colored A2 card base and a slightly smaller piece of black.  Glue the black to the card and then add your stamped background.  Place your fairy on top of the tall mushroom add the glitter to the wings and mushroom stem.  Then add the sparkle stars and white dots to the sky.  Glue down your sentiment and your card is complete

Good Morning Scrapping Cottage Friends!

Today, I am making a card that will be a big hit with my little 2 year old nephew.  He loves bright colors and ducks so this card fits both of his favorite things except that it is a little girl duck! But at his age it really makes no difference!!  Also we have a new release called Magical Fantasy!  And believe me it is Magical and so darling.  It is 25% off in our stores so don't miss out!  I can't wait to make cards with it.

Design Steps:
 1.  Cut out the duck and accessories using: the Rainy Day Duck die, orange, blue, yellow, black card stock and Polka Dot DP
 2.  Use your favorite inks to shade and highlight the pieces
 3.  I had some pre-embossed square cards that I decided to stop hoarding!  They have really cute envelopes to match.(Lasting Impressions) I assembled the cute little duck and umbrella
 3.  Glue down the puddle and then the duck.  I placed a pop dot behind the umbrella for some dimension and then glued down the splashes
 4.  On the inside of the card I layered a piece of DP behind the white then glued that inside
 5.  I made another umbrella and assembled it
6.  Then glued the umbrella to the inside of the card and add your sentiment to the front of the card

Tea for Two!

Good Morning Blogging Friends!

Today,  I am posting a card for a friend.  I am getting ready to move cross country and it is always hard to leave good friends.  So needless to say I will be making a number of these cards.  We are moving from South Carolina to Nevada!!  It is going to be a stressful couple of weeks I am sure!

Designer Steps:
 1.  Using the Spring Teapot & Cups die cut all of the pieces out of light pink
 2.  Use your favorite markers to color the flowers, trim and leaves.  Shade the pieces and then assemble
 3.  I used tiny rhinestones for the centers of the flowers on the cup and teapot
 4.  Use a white A2 card base and a piece of light pink card stock cut slightly smaller then the base. Then I cut two pieces of DP 3 x 4
5.  Glue the pink to the card base and then add the two pieces of DP.  Use the Tea Time Doily die and cut it out of white card stock then cut it in half
6.  Glue the white doily as shown and add a piece of satin ribbon between the two pieces of DP.  Pop the teapot and cups to the front and then add the sentiment
