Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo!

Hello everyone :oD
I have just had a go at making a "Shaped card" for
Magnolia Downunder Challenges  #47

I must say, I did have alot of fun with this one and after
fiddling with a few ideas, I settled on a Princess carriage.
I don't have a template, or cutting machine, so I drew and
cut this carriage shape freehand.
I really wish I'd had my Prince Edwin stamp,
but he hasn't arrived yet (he'll probably come this arvo
now lol), so I settled on her Fairygodmother.

The carriage doors open out...
I've added glitter to Tilda's shoes, to try and achieve the
'glass slippers' look...
I added lots of glitter to this card, so it does look better in real's just trying to get the right angle on the camera to
capture it :oD
Stamps            Dancing Tilda, Simsalabim Tilda
Papers             Once upon a time, Blue bazzill cardstock
Embellishments     assorted flowers, fillers,l leaves. Butterflies, crytal
star, filagree brads, crystal brads diamond stickles, pearls, rhinestones.

Thanks for stopping by :oD
Please freel free to leave a comment, I really do
apprecaite your thoughts.

It's all about the dress!

Hi everyone :oD
How good are the new fairytale stamps? The only problem
is deciding which ones to ink up first, lol!

My friend's daughter is getting ready for her high school
ball, which is coming up soon. I asked her if she had a hot
date and she said "Oh, who needs a hot date, when you've 
got the Hot Dress!", well, it did cost her mum an absolute
fortune hahaha.

Anyway I have taken inspiration from this for my latest
card, which I have made for the Magnolia Downunder
challenge #46 "Black, white/cream plus one"
I have used Pink ofcourse (is there any other colour lol)

Stamps          Princess Tilda, Castle background
Embellishments     flowers, fillers, leaves, dress charm, stickles, ribbon

Thanks for stopping by :oD

A Christening card

I have a Christening to attend this weekend for one of my
nieces. I wanted to make her a nice card, but unfortunately
I don't have many stamps that would suit such an occasion.
Not letting it beat me, I decided to raid my scrap stash to
see what I could come up with.

Thanks for stopping by :oD

A card for Brieana

Hello everyone :oD

Exciting 5 year old daughter has been doing Ballet
since she turned 2, she absolutely LOVES it, she would dance
all day every day if she didn't have to go to school haha. She
started Jazz and Tap about18 months ago too.

She has just been invited to take part in her first exams for
both dance classes and she is really excited about it - Yay!
If all goes well, she may also be able to perform solo dances
on stage soon too (atleast she is hoping anyway, she has such
big dreams for such a little girl lol), so that will mean extra
rehearsals until July.

Here she is all dressed up and waiting to go on stage, she is
the one doing the hugging, with the beautiful big smile and
reddish hair....

Ok, now onto my card :o)  I am entering this one into
Magnolia Downunder challenges #45  "PAPER TOLE"  and
Just Magnolia week 54  "IT TAKES TWO"
Magnolia Stamp Lovers "MAKE IT DIMENSIONAL"

I have to admit that when I  first saw these challenges, I was
really wishing for my new Fairytale stamps. I have been quite
busy this week and thought I'd never get this card done and
lo and behold, the postie dropped by with my first delivery of
new stamps Yay yay yay!!!!!
After drooling over them all for a few minutes, I had to
choose the Ballerina one and make a card based on the
excitement of my daughter's upcoming exams...perfect :0D

So with out further ado, here is the card that I have made
for her...

I wanted to re-create the ballet studio, and apparently,
Midsummer Tida had to have Jazz shoes on (lol)

Here you can see the paper tole layers...

Stamps      Ballerina Tilda, Midsummer Tilda
Paper         Ballerina Paper, Regal Rose card, asst card for paper piecing
Embeishments     Roses, leaves, fillers, diamond stickles, Butterfly, alfoil
ribbon, Ballerina bracelet charm, foam tape.
