Watercolored Twingling Fairy

Decided to do some stamping this time, used waterolor to create this cute little fairy. Added some glaze and stickles to her wings. Hand stitched the borders and embossed the background. Added some rhinestones round the border and purple flower brads at the bottom. Finished off with a coordinating bow.

Swingin Time

Cute card with 3-D layers. I created the monkey and giraffe in Illustrator, printed them and hand colored. Hand stitched multiple layers to create background scene, some of which were embossed using Cuttlebug. I used textured paper for the trees and cut and stuck leaves. Stickers were used for the grass. After popping the animals, I made a frame for the outline. Tag was added with gold brads on the corners. The tag could be removed if desired.

Dance Like Nobody's Watching

Another tea bag folding design, this time I made the ballerina by quilling her body and using cut outs for her skirt, wire was used for the head, arms and legs. The rest was hand stitched, ribbon added and embellishments included brads and rhinestones.

Butterfly Kisses

A very pretty design using tea bag folding. The card is in various shades of purple. I hand stitched the background layers and added some embossing using my Cuttlebug. Love this machine. I designed the butterflies on Adobe Illustrator. Butterflies were popped to give 3-D effect and wire was used to make antennas. Bazzill flowers and brads were also used. The inside was hand stiched and finished off with coordinating envelope.
