Fairy Tales Fiona

Happy Saturday!  (It’s been a long old week).  I had a card to make for the Dies to Die For Blog today so thought I would share it here.    I have used a CC Designs stamp – Fairy Tales Fiona and coloured her with Copics.  I did try distress inks but made such a hash of it I grabbed for the Copics, how’s that for a turn-around!


I found these gorgeous Sassafras Indie Girl papers that I have been stroking for so long, and decided to be brave and cut into them.  I stamped the greeting on to a Shapeabilities Fancy Tags die


The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, I used 20mm roses and 10mm roses.  The gorgeous distressed ribbon is from my sweet friend Kathy, thanks sweetie mwah xx

Just a quick heads up – Donna is having a Birthday Sale Celebration and Candy and very yummy candy it is too!  The candy is here so pop across and enter and grab 15% off any purchase in her store here.

That’s all from me today – I am heading off to Ikea for more rails for the punches explosion I have going on in this craft room.  I DETEST, HATE and LOATHE shopping (except craft shopping) so will be there and back asap lol.  Have a fabulous weekend.

Thanks for stopping by,



  1. Oooh what a beauty ... not surprised you were loath to cut into that gorgeous paper ... I have a stash too that I take out, look at and then think its too nice to use!

  2. Love the card and the blue flowers detail

  3. This is colored so beautifully... your images are always gorgeous! Show us the trashed distressed ink image that didn't make the cut LOL!!!

    Thanks for the heads up on Donna's sale : )

    Happy shopping (even though it's not for crafts, it's FOR crafts!)

    Love and hugs ~

    This little lady is such a cutie & I just love her T-Shirt. I know what you mean about the papers. I'm looking at some now to make my hubbies birthday card & I'm thinking, 'Do I really love him that much?!' LOL. He wouldn't appreciate the scarifice! Hope you've now recovered from the trauma that is IKEA on a Saturday!
