Scene 6

Another Pixie scene example card, plus this one is a second example card also for our Sunday challenge on Dottie's World. Again this image is part of the FREE (uppercase!!) bundle comprising eight Pixie Scenes. Remember you can get this only if you have already purchased our two Pixie Download collections

The challenge is FLOWERS, lots of them and in different colours. As you can see there are plenty of flowers on my card. The Pixie scene comes exactly as you see it here, complete with frame and sentiment. After printing I deepened the colours here and there and glossed flowers with Glossy Accent.

Easier to see the edging against a black background. I punched a border using Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page punches.

The two big flowers are Fancy Pants die-cuts. I sanded down the edges of all the paper with a Basic Grey Precision File.

A simple inside. Again all edges of the paper has been sanded down with a Precision File.

Nestabilities dies to cut the shapes here. Rub-on for sentiment.

Thanks for visiting ♥

Flowers Challenge & Scene 5

Time for another challenge on our digi-stamp blog - if you have any of the Charmed challenges then please pop over and join in, we would love to see your work. Our lovely Gunn set the challenge this week and she wanted to see lots of flowers in different colours on our projects. I created two cards for this one but will post my second card tomorrow as I need to finish the inside. Both of the cards use scenes I created from our Pixie Download collections, remember you can get them for free (see earlier posts for details).

So here is my first card:

I decorate the inside too. The two flowers were cut with Nestabilities dies and the edges treated to a little Perfect Pearls.

Here is Holly Pixie on a toadstool. I used Glossy Accents and a little gold Stickles for a 3 dimensional effect.

The branches around the rim of the card were cut with a Martha Stewart Branch punch with a little Gold Stickles on them. The main picture is simply one of our FREE new Pixie Scenes, it comes complete with background and sentiment. I glossed and glittered it a little then matted on plain cardstock. All the roses are Prima. The red ball trim is Fancy Pants.

I folded a strip of the main paper in a concertina style and used it as a decoration, very simple but effective:

I hope you are enjoying your Sunday, and you have better weather than we're having here in London. We had that promise of a lovely summer just a week or two ago, and I thought the heating was going to stay off until Autumn, but since then it's been flippin' freezing and the heating has well and truly been resurrected. Grey skies also means that pictures are more difficult to take, I know many set up these little cool light tents and I really want one of those, at the moment it's in the conservatory on a couple of pieces of white bazzill LOL

Thanks to all of you who have entered our May Candy. I hope you get a chance to also have a little gander around the blog whilst you are here :-)
