Spring Birgitta

For my card I have used the lovely Birgitta, one of the Swiss Pixies from CC- Designs

She is coloured with fresh and bright Copic colours and I've used a selection of the Paper Mania 'Rose Garden' papers.

Thanks for looking :)

PI ~ you make the grade A+

Oh, yes, it's another PI girlie, I just love them (and little birdie tells me there are more new ones on there way so best keep your eyes peeled)  This time I've used this cutie, 'you make the grade'.  Think she is fabulous for exam cards, teachers' cards or even general card for that 'A+' person in your life! :)

She's been stamped out 4 times and then cut out various bits before layering her up with foam pads. (see photos below for better view of the layering & depth).

The apple shaped cardbase was just hand drawn by me and cut out by hand, then covered in DP and added a little green stalk on top.  It opens upwards so it's hinged at the top, either side of the stalk.

Here are some shots from the side to show you the layers;

Thanks for looking.

Basket of eggs

Oh, look, it's another PI girlie, what a surprise!  but at least I've coloured her ALL in (with Copics), and not done any paper piercing this time ;)   I think she would make an 'egg-cellent' card for other occasions too (sorry, couldn't help myself!) depending on the sentiment you used with her.  I think she's out of stock (told you they'd go quick!) but I'm sure if you asked nicely they can be restocked ;)

Thanks for looking.  Hope you all have a cracking good weekend ;D (egg shell - cracking, get it?!)

PI ~ Fairy Girl

Oooo, I'm loving these Pure Innocence cuties and it seems you are too, as quite a few have sold out already, so you best be quick.

Here's one using 'Fairy Girl'. 

Bit of paperpiercing for her dress again (can't seem to stop doing that with these :) ), a touch of colouring with Copics and stickles added for glittery wings and wand, some pretty dp and gems and job done.  Wanted to keep it simple & sweet.  The fab little sentiment is 1 of 2 included in the set and because they are clear stamps I can bend it on my acrylic block to stamp so that it creates the wavy writing.

Thanks for looking and hope you manage to get the ones you want before they fly out the door.

Party Girls

'Party Emma' and 'Ballon Emma' all dressed up (or should that be all paper pierced up) ready to par-tay!

The cutie sitting down in front is raised on foam pads which you might be able to see on the photo below
The bits that aren't paper pierced have been coloured with Copics and stickles added to the bows in her hair.

Thanks for looking.

    The Greeting Farm ~ Ebony

    Here's Ebony all rock chick with pink hair :)  You can go grab her here along with the other stamps from TGF.  I've coloured her with Copics and for added sparkle to her hair you could use the clear atyou spica pen.  The dots around the scallop frame were made with stickles.

    Thanks for looking & happy shopping :)
