Elegant, for that special lady

Good afternoon all

Created a different shaped card today using Sue Wilson's creative expressions hexagon die.  There's so many possibilities and different varieties and style you can do with this die.  It is a large die and has at least 10 different dies in the set. It cuts really well even in my hand cranked machine lol.

I used a heavyweight cardstock which I got from create and craft on an offer and reduced price. It's at least 280gsm and colours are black and white with silver and gold foiled patterns. Excellent quality and looks stunning when die cut too. 
You get card blanks, card stock , gems, twine and blank sentiment pieces plus more. 
Card making kit:
Luxury black and white card kit

The sentiment is from a Hunkydory stamp set and the flowers were from different sets of tattered lace dies. 
I stamped it on a blank sentiment shaped card base from the kit above

The gems were from fb marketplace for a pound, another fab bargain lol

I stuck another piece of die cut cardstock behind the card so it would stand up and open as a card

Quickest and easiest card I've done in a while but loved the result. 

Thanks and welcome to my new followers and I hope you all have a lovely evening

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
