Have a fairy sweet day!

Hi!  After I cleaned my desk I found this sweet Tiddly Inks Wryn -- Fairy Friends all printed out and waiting for me to color her up for Sweet Stamping Pixies Challenge #3 -- fave fairy/pixie and Tiddly Inks Challenge #87 -- flowers.  Wryn is such a cutie and I love her as a fairy, definitely one of my favorites!

This card came out so much larger than I intended!  Just about 6.25 inches.  The front is about an inch or so larger than the folded card itself.  But I really didn't want to shrink it.  I used my Perfect Layers rulers for all the mats.  Definitely helps when I'm feeling lazy to get up and use my paper cutter.  I don't have a scallop square that large either so I just cut 2 and layered it and covered the corners with flowers and the sentiment.  I rounded the corners too as advised by my daughter!  I think I agree that it looks better like that! 

Added some stickles to her wings, flowers and the butterflies.  Colored in some clear rhinestones with my orange Copic.  I added some blue chalk in the background but that's hard to see.  I also extended the grass too with my black Copic multiliner.  

My hubby is too logical sometimes asking me why she is smaller than the mushroom but larger than the butterflies and snail.  I don't know.  Does everything have to make sense?  He is also the one to point out that my highlights are in the wrong place.  But really, I just want to color and make stuff that's cute without having to think if there is a right or wrong way.  I think Kim Hughes from Paper Smooches had mentioned something about not having a wrong way to create cards.  And that's what I try to remind myself, to have more fun and less stress designing a card.  Cause really, who needs more stress??

Thanks so much reading!



Awww she is adorable! Such beautiful colours eva and a really fun layout. Lol if he is going to get so logical then how come there is a FAIRY??? Or is that completely ok? LOL ;)

O my! This is wonderful Eva! Super cute and totally sweet! You don't have to worry about anything, this is fabulous, from the coloring to the layout to the size of everything. You should challenge him to create a card and see what he comes up with. hahaha!
Take care and Have a great Monday!
Pfft... men! I chalk it up to that. ;) I think your coloring is gorgeous, as well as your card! Loving the little details on here Eva, it's absolutely beautiful! So happy you joined us at Tiddly Inks!!
hugs, Leah :)
Oh my Eva, I had a good chuckle after reading what you wrote about your hubby.. Because mines is the same way as your hubby.... Usually after when I'm done with any card he likes to see it and gives me an opinion on it. Or he'll comment on it like why does this image has such big eyes, or why does her legs looks too skinny for her body or why does he/she has to have a head that is bigger than their bodies and so on and so on....
But hey I'll just give him a smile and space out his comments. LOL!
Your card is awesome regardless what our men say!.
Enjoy your Monday...(hehe)

Cute card! Great idea with the scalloped squares! Love that your cardmaking involves the whole family! The coloring is so pretty! I actually don't see whatever your husband is noticing about the highlights... which is probably why I can never figure out where the highlights go in the first place!

Amen to that! Sometimes I definitely over-think it! She is adorable and perfectly colored! I haven't bought her ...yet... ;)

Obviously he doesn't believe in fairies! Maybe in her neck of fairyland that's the way things are!
Love your card, so pretty!
So sweet. Love your coloring and layout.
Tons of Hugs, Dangina

Tell your hubs that the snail and butterflies are far away, & that's why they look small! And, yes, there is no wrong way to make a card! Lovely and cute!

Snowman gift card holder

Hi!  I was planning to post this last night but I was just too tired to write or think of complete sentences.  It's been a busy week with the boys on Fall break and still trying to finish up a bunch of crafts.  I have been trying to make some crocheted crafts to put in my Etsy shop and finally I'm done with one.  It's a crocheted snowman that can hold a gift card or anything actually that is small enough to fit in the pouch.  The pattern is designed by ChiWei Ranck of One Dog Woof and can be found HERE . Here's the little snowman with his arms folded over in the front to look like he is hugging the card.  I added this fun card that I stamped.  You can definitely add in a gift card too behind this card. The gift card reaches under his nose. This is how the little opening of the pouch looks.  I hope I can make more of these little guys.  These would be so cute for teachers and I think it would be easy to put a little wire through the hat and then use it as

all occasion tags

Hello!  I have more tags to share today.  I kept these simple too to be used on most any occasion.  They have no sentiments on them. I used MFT's cute Birdie Brown Bitty Bears stamp set.  These were on my wish list for a while and I kept going back and forth about purchasing them especially because I wanted the dies to cut them out too and those were very expensive!  Geez, remember the old days when we used to fussy cut everything out by hand? This is the next 6 tags.  There's also a cute bear with a Santa hat that I didn't include in the photos.  This was a pretty quick project since I kept the bears white!  Not much coloring on these tags but they are still cute and colorful. I thought I was going to be doing more stamping but I've actually gone on to crochet more!  I've made 3 more crochet projects that I'll share soon.  Sometimes I do get the urge to color something but these days it's so much easier to pick up some yarn and my hook and crochet

coffee cup shaped cards

Hi!  I think after this post I may need a little nap!  My right shoulder is actually feeling worn out from all the typing and photo editing I've been doing lately.  And this cooler weather is making me drowsy.  It's getting cold here already! I made a bunch of these coffee shaped cards using a die from Honey Bee Stamps .  It's a cute coffee set but the die is extra long so it would probably help to have a longer platform to diecut.  I just have the standard sized one so I would pass it through once in my Big Shot and then rotate the cardstock and die carefully to cut the other end.  Manageable but the longer platform would be more convenient! I embossed the front of the card with some pretty snowflakes.  I think this is a Sizzix embossing folder.  And then stamped the coffee sleeve with some Lawn Fawn stamps. This is the inside.  The gift card slot does not come with this coffee cup die set.  I cut that opening with one of the dies from MFT's gift card dies.
