Spring is in the air at the Pixie Cottage!

Today at the Pixie Cottage we are celebrating Spring with another Pixie Cottage Showcase! Make sure to take a peek at all of the DT's cards because there are some adorable new stamps being introduced.
My card today features two pixie cottage stamps. I used the beautiful "Stump&Bench" stamp by the uber talented Sandra Hammer, to create the background. I then cut out Alisa from the adorable "Alisa in Wonderland" stamp by the fabulous Alisa Ramirez. Doesn't she look so cute sitting on the bench!? I got this idea from a fabulous tutorial that our very own Pixie DT member Renata did. You can check out that tutorial here.
I colored my images with Distress inks, Tombow Markers and an aquapainter.

Paper - From Stash
Cardstock - Bazzil
Dies - Spellbinders fancy tags
Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts
Ribbon - Prima Specialty ribbon collection

New Pixie Cottage Challenge + New DT Announcement!

Welcome to a new Pixie Cottage Challenge! This weeks challenge is Circles! Just make sure your card uses circles and post your link. There are wonderful prizes to be won from Michelles Scrapbook store.
My card this weeks features this adorable image by Eileen Gutierrez called "Sweet Molly"
This image was so much fun to color! I used my favorite Distress inks and an aquapainter then popped her up with dimensionals for a 3-D effect. My papers are K&Company and Bazzil cardstock. I used lots of stickles and sugared brads for sparkle!

Exciting News!
Michelle just announced our new DT! You can find the names of these talented ladies HERE!
