May all your wishes come true ...

Again I have gone for another aperture card (although not that clear in this photo) as this digi image; from the Lilybean Fairies collection at Pollycraft Designs really suits it.

---
Instead of using punched out flowers I have gone for flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts which were roses and I have taken off the bottom layer only so I can use the remainder of the roses for another project. Martha Stewart branches. Papers again from the lovely Zoe Pearn, coloured using Promarkers, Stickles glitter for the wings and the aperture. Craftwork Cards sentiment, hand stitched and some gems.
Thanks for looking

Another Longing Tilda ...

---
She is sooo adorable, I thought she would look great in an aperture card. Inspired by Jane which can be found here http://whiffofjoy.blogspot.com/2010/06/punched-screen-card-by-jane-johnson.html such a simple yet very effective technique me thinks. Tilda has been coloured using Promarkers inspired in this instance by the lovely Kate Knight papers which were free in a magazine sometime ago.

I am entering this card for the http://sirstampalotchallenge.blogspot.com/ which for June is 'Punch it'.

Longing Tilda

Had this image on pre-order for what seemed like an eternity and when she finally arrived I didn't get round to having a play as I was busy playing with the LOTV new release. I had in my mind a shabby chic style, pleased with the result but not as shabby as I intended.
Products used - Longing Tilda from Magnolia. Coloured using Promarkers. Papers are Zoe Pearn. Flowers & Pins are Wild Orchid Crafts. MS branch punch. Butterfly punch. Hand stitched. Anitas gems & pearls. Ribbon from my stash. Sentiment is Craftwork cards & finally TH distress inks.
Thanks for looking, hope you like it?

LOTV Sailing Boat ...

Isn't he adorable? Struggle with the mens, I think most of us do. Not so much the image but the embellishments I think. Can't just add a bunch of flowers! Really pleased with this one, need to make a fair few male cards so I am hoping this one will keep me inspired. Lots of other LOTV stamps to play with so watch this space (she says hopefully)!!!!

Another Swiss Pixie ...

This is the other Swiss Pixie from last weeks new stash, another cutie I think you will agree. Used a Magnolia stamp called Spring Tree for the background. Lots of fresh colours mainly yellow, green and pink! Embellishments from the usual suppliers, again coloured with Promarkers and a bit of glitter for her wings.
Off to play with the new release this week from LOTV!!!
