Best Wishes On You Birthday

This is a card made from Peter Rabbit collection brought to us by

I used a pre scored round scalloped edge card blank, 350gsm from Kanban then using a circle compass i cut background paper into a circle. Using Tim Holtz distress inks i blended 2 colours onto the card, background paper and topper using my blending tool to give it that distressed look. I decoupaged the topper image (frog reading paper) moulded it by hand to give dimension, using pinflair glue gel to attach. The topper was attached with foam pads just to raise it slightly.

For the sentiment i used a die cut image from same collection and distressed that as well, used foam pads to give a bit off dimension to my sentiment then i stamped the distress ink onto craft sheet spritz the ink then mopped it up by using textured ribbon. Faux gems were added for a bit off interest and it helps to balance it all out.

I hope you like and please if you make a comment sugestions on how i can improve on my design would be appreciated.

I intend on entering this into

ATC's Theme Faeries

Paintbox Poppets Faeries ATC,s are for a swap in
These little Poppets are from
and the images are the artwork off Christine Haworth.
Cut 2 pieces of plain white card 2.5 x 3.5 . I used pro markers to colour card (fuchsia pink and rose pink ) making sure the edges are darker than the middle section, then with a glitter gel pen draw around the inside of the card to form a frame leaving a margin around all four edges.

Decoupaged and shaped each of the Poppet Faeries to give dimention to the images use pinflair glue gel, add ultra fine flower soft to highlight area's add pinflair craft glaze to wings and the flowers, use sequins as brads and attach with pinflair glue gel i finished off with a pink bow on one of them.

I hope you enjoy looking at these as much as i had making them. Feel free to leave a comment good, bad and anything i could have done to improve upon it.

Thank you for taking the time to have a look.

ATC's Theme Love

These ATC's were made for a swap on
I am going to show this on

Scrap card cut to 2.5cm x 3.5cm. Used two flower panels ( came free in a magazine ) and added fine glitter to the images using sakura pin point quickie glue pen i framed these images using peel off's.

Using super sticky tape ( red ) i attached some white lace at the top and bottom off image with the straight edge underneath, this gave a nice effect, attached these to the ATC's using same tape, foam pads were used to level the middle off the image as it was lower because of the lace.

I added pink ( warm colour )  ribbon using thin fingerlift tape, added pink plastic gems to the ribbon and corners off the pink image. For the blue ( cool colour ) i attached ribbon the same way,  purple ( complimentary colour ) ranger stickles was used to embelish blue one in the same way ( leave to dry ), then added Love sentiment.

Comments appreciated and thank you for taking the time to have a look.
