World Card Making Day and a Sneak Peek from the Pixie Cottage!

Today is world card making day so get out the paper and glue and craft something beautiful for someone special!
World Card Making day celebrates creativity and connects fellow card makers. This event recognizes the power of handcrafted goodness, and the empowering nature of creativity.
The design team at Pixie Cottage is celebrating this event by offering sneak peeks of the magical world that Pixie Cottage has to offer. Join in the fun and see if you too can find your creative magic!

To celebrate the day I made a car using the Fall Wagon wheel stamp. The stamp reminded me of taking me kids to the pumpkin patch on a beautiful fall evening.
The image is colored using watercolor pencils and an aquapainter. I used spellbinders to create the decorative elements in the card and Martha Stewart pearls for the corners. Crystal effects and stickles make the image shine!
For more inspiration and to see more stamps being released by Pixie Cottage, check out these blogs!

All of these stamps and many more can be purchased from Michelles!

Cup full of Birthday Wishes!

Here is another fun image from Diane at DZ Doodles! This is called the Cupcake Coffee Cup and can be purchased HERE.
For this card I created a frame for my image using two different sizes of the Spellbinders Nestabilities. My image is watercolored using Stampin' UP! Inks and an aquapainter and then popped up with dimensionals. I dug out some of my Prima flowers and jeweled brads to complete this card.
Chocolate and teal is one of my favorite color combinations!
