Cherries & a Fairy

After resting all morning, I was able to play in my craft room for 4 or 5 hours after lunch!

I made SEVEN cards!!! Yeah, me!!!

I will be showing you two of the cards in this blog post today!

~ Hi, Sweetie Cherries card ~


I made this card using an actual page from a little notebook I have. I stamped with a way old (circa 1995) Stampin’ Up! stamp set called Cherries, Checks, and Posies. And my greeting came from a Sunny Studios stamp set called Fresh & Fruity. I used scraps from my box and a little bit of linen thread also from SU! A few splatters were used and to color the stamp I used Real Red, Garden Green and Creamy Caramel markers.

This was my inspiration for how I designed my card – substituting the cherries in place of the apple!

Ribbon Girls June Any Image Challenge 

I used an image on my card.

I played quite a bit with my Sugar Pea Design stamps (I have 2 sets of theirs) for all the sketches they have had this month – I will be posting those in the next day or so. But here is the first card I made today with Fairy Sweet! I made a total of three cards using just this stamp set with the different sketches!! So, here we go –

~ Make A Wish Fairy Card ~


I wish you could see this card up close and see the sparkle and shimmer I added with a Wink Of Stella Clear pen. I used scraps from my box and a circle die cut from MFT. Colored her in with my “Ziggy“s. Isn’t she so adorable?

Maybe if you click on the picture you can see it closer!

I used the sketch for the placement of images and papers on my card and the colors I drew from the chair and the pillow on the chair – the light, soft blue!
