I'm Wishing on a Star....

Hello lovely bloggers, I hope you are all fine and dandy on this
brisk, rainy/sleety/snowy day! I had packed away my winter
boots last week, only to get them back out again yesterday! I have
been a bit busy of late plus me and hubby had the lurgy! plus had
a few commissions just to make sure I wasn't resting too much!!
so have not had time to post anything but have missed you all!
anyways thought I would show you all my design team sample
cards using the fab new CD, Stamps, Stickers and design sheets
from Katy Sue Designs. They are being showcased this week on none
other than the Create and Craft Channel as their "Pick of the Week"
so tune in and have a little looksie. Some of the designs are just
amazing, you can even use the stickers on vases, mirrors etc;
These I have to say, have been my favourite products so far; talk
about being away with the fairies on this little lot of cards....
...oooh I had sooo much fun......... well here are my cards, you
can judge for yourselves!

I made a concertina box from a tri-fold aperture card and then
added the backing papers to card for the back drop.

This is a side view, I used eyelets top and bottom and then florist
wire to attach those cute little fairies onto the inside. By pushing
the wire back and forth it gave the effect of them dancing by the
moon, oh well did I have lots of fun with this one!!

The outer edge flowers and trees are all from the stickers pack.
The beautiful moon backdrop is from the CD and the dancing
fairies were created with rubber stamps onto black card and
decorated with Stickles, Crystal.

This little beauty has also been stamped with Impress Silver
embossing ink and then heat embossed with Stamp n Stuff -
Kaleidoscope, I also stamped her wing again onto acetate and
heat embossed to set, cut a little slice to fit the wing into, ooooh
how fabby doo does that look? I cut out the leaves and petals
from an old pad from K & Co pink recycled paper, made from
my own template. I did add some gorgeous flowersoft for the
centre pollen, but after I took the piccie!

Here is a little close up of that wing, I then added the little damsel
fly punched from silver mirri card and added Stickles Crystal for
glistening effect and a little pink plastic gem to represent a
droplet of water.

This fairy is from one of the Sticker sheets, so you can see that
the stamps and stickers are all co-ordinated. Stuck onto black
card for extra body, crescent moon cut from own template on
black and silver glitter card. Punch used for stars and dragon
flies. The Dream is from the Sticker pack but again comes as
a stamp too. Little silver organza ribbon to finish.

This one is from the Lunar Landscape sheets and also the
CD, I have decoupaged the fairies to make them stand out.
Sentiment is also from the LL sheets. This emerald green
really does stand out from the crowd.

Ooooh this was my favourite, I used a gate fold card and shaped
the top to form doors. Eyelets used for ribbons and tied together
Those gorgeous trees are stickers; aren't they fab? The fairies
have been stamped using the same process as the Pink Lilly card.
Can you see the little notice? It says " You have to believe to Enter
the Enchanted Wood" this was done using the PC. The believe at
the top again using the co-ordinating stamp set, stamped onto
green shrink plastic with Black Staz On.

Inside the enchanted wood is an array of stickers and background
papers from the CD, the fairies are stickers which I have placed
again onto black card for support, I have added a diamante stone
in the centre of the star and also used a new Flower Soft product
called Glitter Frosting, it is like little snowflakes of irredescent
hues of green and violet. The tree in the centre is also from the
sticker pack.

Next on the list is this centre step card. These papers were
from the CD again, they have co-ordinated them with quite
a few of the spellbinders dies so the shapes come out printed
ready for you to either cut with scissors or to use you spellbinders
dies. I love this colour. The flowers I have punched and used
black flower soft in the centres. These fairies are already printed
onto the backing papers, the CD has either plain backing sheets
or pre printed with fairies and trees.

And finally this little easel card, the Birthday wishes has been
stamped onto the backing papers and cut out.. I have also
decoupaged the fairies and tree to give them some depth.
These were tiny but the effect if so good. Lots of Stickles too
to make them all sparkle.
Well I hope you enjoyed your little journey into fairy land, I
certainly loved making these beautiful cards. If you would
