Believe in the magic!

Good evening bloggers

I've been finding some real bargains lately especially on stamp sets.  Hunkydory are selling "For the love of stamps" sets for just 99p! They were £8.00.

I bought the pixie dust set and a few others  
Of course when you have something new you have to play with them right? Lol
You can find the jolly Christmas stamp set here at a great price: Jolly Christmas stamp set
And Donna Ratcliff fairy stamps here for £3.99 :Donna Ratcliff fairy stamps
The rest are from Hunkydory for 99p.

I made this card using Sheenas sparkle pens for the background on watercolour cardstock.  Blended with blending tool and glycerine. 

All the stamp sets I used were a combination of these: A little pixie dust, no place like home, forest friends and a jolly Christmas all from Hunkydory.  Plus a few stamps from Donna Ratcliff fairy range. 

I used white gel pen for highlights and sparkly gems and gel pen for the stars. 

Matted it onto cardstock from create and craft.  Sentiment is from stamp set and flower a tattered lace die set. 

The fairy on the branch is from lavinia stamps

Thanks so much for stopping by and thanks for any comments you may leave. 

Enjoy your evening

No act of kindness, however small, is ever wasted

Good evening crafters 

I'm so glad it's been cooler today and finally some fresh cool air here tonight.  Not sure how long it will last but anything is better than nothing lol 

I've been working on this 8x8 card today. 
The main focal image is a die cut from creative expressions range called "papercuts", this one is called "Spring butterfly garden". It cuts beautifully and it's so versatile you get 5 dies with this one which includes the outerlayer, the pattern itself and 3 butterfly dies. I won it by commenting on a fb live event.  You can buy or look for more from the range here:
Creative expressions papercuts dies

The cardstock is from a 12x12 Kanban card which I cut down using 2 pieces to create a 8x8 card.   The card used for the die is just basic white and black cardstock. I used the same die to cut it out of black cardstock aswell as white to create a shadow effect. 

I matted it onto some patterned paper and black cardstock from my stash. 
Dies I used for the flourishes, flowers and foxglove flourish are from tattered lace and Joanna Sheen. 

Sentiment is from my stash and I matted it onto white card distressed with dew drop pink chalk ink cut out of a tattered lace oval die. 

Border die from Joanna sheen and gems my stash.
Beautiful ribbon from create and craft

The sentiment I love as the saying is very true. 

Hope you all have an awesome weekend
