Prize 3 Images


Don’t forget to stop by my team mates blogs to check out some more fabulous inspiration.

I am using an image from our sponsor, Fabrika Fantasy called Water Fairy, I decided to use the pre coloured image to make my card, I found a piece of paper from an old magazine freebie cover book which worked well with the image colour and a scrap of coloured cardstock from my box of bits. I printed the image twice so I could layered the little fairy on top of the flower adding some dimension, I decided that there was too much white behind her and used a tiny star stamp from a Christmas set to add some silver stars, I should have cut a mask for the flower and fairy but did things the hard way… Then fussy cut her wings out on the 1st image and die cut the circle leaving the wings poking out from the circles edge layering the fussy cut second fairy onto the image. As a final touch I added four forest mushrooms cut out in purple and metallic cream card attaching them with foam tape to add dimension.

I've Been Everywhere Man...


Hello again,


Well I’m back with another male birthday card, I made this one for my Dad who bought an old mini school bus several years ago and converted it into a caravan for him and Mum to go away in, I have used a digi image I won from Beccy’s Place and I paper pieced the caravan in layers, adding a thin layer of PVA glue to give the outside a bit of a shine, I did it on purpose (not) another accident with too much glue and it spreading everywhere even after applying it carefully with tiny toothpicks.

No there aren't any places around the harbour that you can pull up and make camp, although it doesn't stop some people.... mini vans often hired by back packers park in car parks near our beaches and sleep the night there... no facilities a take away dinner or cook dinner on a park barbecue to enjoy the views.


Here is my card:-

Classic Cars


Hello again,


Well this card is one I have had in mind for my Uncle after making this one with one of my new CCD dies, I had planned on using multiple of the cars on the original card, but they didn’t fit. I had a minor slip up when making this card and ended up adding a thin layer of PVA glue to each of the cars to add some sheen to them after a slightly too large a drop spilled on to the VW Beetle, leaving it looking obviously shinier than the other two.


Here is my card:-


What I used:
White 5x7” card blank 12.6 x 17.8cm
Kraft cardstock
Design papers from a $2 shop (Rosie’s Studio Transit Lounge)
Black, white, green, red and blue card from scrap box
Marianne Design VW Die
CCD Car Die 1
CCD Car Die 2
Ranger Liquid Enamel
Colorbox Charcoal ink pad
Black fine line pen
MFT pierced fishtail flags die
Typed sentiment
Foam tape, Double sided tape, PVA glue
