Together Forever

I'd like to share another of my favourite images with you (they're all my favourites!!) This one is 'Together Forever' from the new Love Grows collection.



The image is coloured in my usual Copics and I've added grass under their feet, I hate the thought of them falling on hard ground. The papers are an old, old download from Shabby Princess called Signature collection. I've used a Sizzix die to cut the leaves, the flowers are from Wild Orchid crafts and the ribbons from my stash. I cut a tag for one of the new Inspirational sentiments and used some cluster pearls to decorate it.


Thanks so much for stopping by

Hi dear all,
today I would like to show you a card using one of my favourite image from the new Lili of the Valley Girlie Collection. It´s called *Birthday Fairy* ... isn´t it just so cute?

Pom Pom


Happy Sunday all,

Finally finished my card with the gorgeous Pom Pom fairy
that I coloured with Copics when the release first came out.

As you can see, I've gone a bit punch mad..
but in a way I think that makes her 'pop' out from the card even more.

Please see my post for the link to the tutorial
on how to make the  borders with just a single corner punch

Have a fabulous evening,

Marlene x

Dandelion Clock

Here is a card I'd like to show you using one of the new Little Fairies, this one is Dandelion Clock. I was about to say she's my favourite, but I say that each time I colour any one of them, they are also so adorable.


The image - Little Fairies, Dandelion Clock is coloured with Copcis,  the papers are
an old  digi and of unknown origin.
I've used two dies Spellbinders large octagons and a  Crealies leaves die
The stamp around the image is Crealies a small flower head and the border and corner a cut with a Carlacraft Punch  - Macaron
I handmade the flowers using mulberry paper, the EK Success Retro flower punches then dyed/spritzed them with a mixture of water, distress ink and perfect pearls

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend with lot's of time for crafting!!
