Sweet sugarplum birthday

I just needed to make a card for my sister-in-law. I'm a bit tired and my mojo was all hot and bothered so I took a quick spin over to Pinterest and CASED this from the very talented Dena Rekow of www.thecreativitycave.com. I've almost faithfully copied her card except for the sentiment and the ribbon, I also gave mine a Wink of Stella!  Please visit her blog to see her original and she also made a fabulous hydrangea in a pot which you can post!

I am utterly in love with this stamp set and die bundle from Stampin' Up! It's called Thoughtful Branches and is going to be available from 2nd August on a limited time offer just until 31st August. I've already showcased it in a class and have projects planned for a Christmas card stamp-a-stack class soon. Personally I think it's flipping fab! Don't miss out on the offer andre sure to follow me on Pinterest where I have a board dedicated to latest offers...currently showing off so many examples of how this set can be used.

Fairy Celebration

One of my favourite new stamp sets from the new catalogue is Fairy Celebration. It's just perfect for whimsical cards and little girls!
My God daughter turns five next week and I immediately knew I wanted to use this set for her card. I also wanted to make it as special as her so I decided on a fancy fold.
It is really easy to get good watercolour results using Stampin'Up Up! ink and StayzOn ink for stamping the outline. If you've never tried it then I really encourage you to have a go!
I hope you get an idea of how 3D this card is from my photos... I adore that cheeky fairy swinging from the cherry Tree and knew she would look cute if I fussy cut her out! The smallest fairy in the background couldn't be left out - she's got shimmery double layer wings made from vellum and it just so happens that they were punched out using the item bitty butterfly punch... Love that!
