Well it feels decidedly Autumnal this morning as the kids make their way to school. I'm off to work in a minute so I've just popped on to upload this card quickly before I leave.
This is my first time entering the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge and I'm using my new Magnolia Calibri bird, just the sweetest thing I've ever seen and fab to colour! As you can see I really went to town on this little winged wonder....... bit of layering, then out came the Stickles and sticky pearls! This is one of those cards where what you had in your mind translates to what appeared on the card, YAY, love it when that happens!! I treated myself to a new Kay&Co Madeline paper pad and have used some of the papers for this card, including the sentiment. I've been itching to use a paper doily on my card (I am also giving some away in my candy) and so that counts for the scallops, along with the scalloped edges I created with a MS border punch.
I saw a fab flower tutorial on Rach's blog at the weekend (thank you hun) and I just had to give it a go! I used a few less layers but I'm really pleased with how these turned out and will definitely be making them again. The leaves and butterflies are from Woodware punches and the larger pink pearls are from my stash. To finish I lightly added some faux stitching and distressed the edges of my papers with Distress Inks.
This card is the first of three that I'm making in response to a design team call for a new range of stamps at The Pixie Cottage and I will be giving you further details in a couple of days.
Right then, best show my face at the office. Have a great day and I look forward to visiting you all later on.
Cardmaking is my passion and I love sharing tips and ideas with other talented crafters. I wake up with ideas buzzing around in my head and go to sleep the same way. My family think I'm bonkers but that's fine by me. I have an ever-growing wishlist, made worse by all the wonderful cards I see when hopping around on a daily basis. I have made some wonderful friends through my hobby, long may it continue!!
