Dreaming of a white Christmas

When I first saw this image of Dreaming Pixie I wanted to use it for a Christmas card so went with the soft teal and icy blue shades.   This is just the most beautiful image,don't you think, and so versatile too.

A close up of the snowflake embellies, punched and die cut and coated with Twinklets and Glamour Dust.

I used one of the Spellbinders borders for the centre strip.

Holly Pixie

Here's another card from me using the gorgeous Pixie Chicks.  Little Holly Pixie is definitely my favourite, check out the frills on her dress lol.

I've added some Flowersoft to her dress and the tops of her boots and stickles to the holly for a bit of bling. I dug out this old Anna Griffin paper - who would have thought that AG and Pixie Chicks would work together! Shows what you can get away with when making Christmas cards. Apologies for the pants picture – I am struggling with the dark days we have had this past week, rain rain and more rain :(

Enchanting Pixie

This is another of my favourite pixies and I really enjoyed working with her again.

I used Fancy Pants Daily Grind papers (from the pad) and Daily Grind chipboard. My circle is made up with Imaginisce Blossoming Romance Rub-ons . The decorative edging was made with a Martha Stewart punch. White flowers are K&Co. As always everything is available from Charmed Cards & Crafts

Have a lovely day :-)

Rosebud Pixie

Here's another Pixie card from me, I've used Rosebud Pixie.

A close up of Rosebud – those eye lashes are to die for!! I glittered her wings with some Glamour Dust (love the stuff). The image is coloured with Copics, I so need more practice lol.

I started off the card by following the SYFTT sketch then went a bit awry with the sizing but think I pulled it back again by using much narrower pieces across the top of the card than what is shown on the sketch.

Little Dreamer

I've got a couple of birthdays coming up so grabbed the chance to use this beauty again. We are entering the dark days phase again and I couldn't get the light. Bev you must tell me how you always get your lighting so perfect!!!

I added a copious amount of crystal glamour dust and some glossy accent as can be seen in this picture with the flash on:

Chipboard button is Maya Road, Pearls are self-adhesive Habico pearls. The sentiment is by Charmed Cards & Crafts. The bow is paper cord and finally the charm is a Marion and Me Girl charm.

I used Fancy Pants paper from the 8x8 "The Daily Grind Grind" pad and cut it down and pieced it in to fit my 6x6 card. The two pink strips are Basic Grey paper edged with a Martha Stewart punch. I took a little piece of a large Prima swirl apart and used it to embellish the two strips.

Sorry for the large amount of pictures, I always drown you in them.

We are going to be having some challenges soon so watch out for those.

Enchanting Pixie

Here's the first of my cards using the new Pixie Chicks stamps. I was so excited when I heard they were turning some of their Pixie digi images into stamps because up till recently I have not had Copics so could not use the digi images. I have coloured Enchanting Pixie with distress inks and H2O's
I have used papers from the Basic Grey Wisteria pad - these colours are so perfect for the image I think.

Thanks for stopping by
