I decided to make a hidden slider card for this cute little fairy.  This is one of the stamps from the Fairy Loved stamp set.  Once I finished coloring her with Copics I cut her out so that I could attach her to acetate to give the appearance of flying across the mountains..  I used the slider dies from Lawn Fawn. Cool eh!!  The mountains were created using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Mountain border die and the trees were created using the MFT - Trees In the Forest die.  The house/fence die and the grass die are both from YNS.  I sponged the clouds on using Distress Ink.  The designer papers are from the Doodlebug - Cream and Sugar paper pad. 
I've created a little video so you can actually see her flying across the scene.  My first time trying this so I hope it actually works!

Such a perfect Bunny stamp for creating Easter cards!!  I got out my trusty Copics to colour this image and then cut him out!  I used left overs from the Doodlebug - Bunnyville paper pad to create the five panels in the background.  I embossed the sentiment onto a piece of vellum then added a panel of turquoise behind it so that the sentiment would show up.  The beautiful heart is a die from Simon Says Stamp called Large Heart Doily.  Then to finish it off I decided to colour and cut out the little butterfly and bee just to add a bit more dimension!  Enjoy the hop!

Welcome back to another fun day of sneak peeks!  I had so much fun creating this pop up card and scene with these adorable dragons!  I used two dies from Lawn Fawn to create the pop up design.  For the background I used the Leafy Tree Backdrop die and for the pop up I used the Stitched Hillside Pop-Ups die. 


This side view photo gives you a better view of the pop-up.  The designer paper is from the Doodlebug - Spring Things and the Puppy Love paper pads.  The mountains were created using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Mountain Borders and the colour trees were made using the MFT Die-namics Trees In The Forest Die.  All the dragons were coloured with Copics and then I cut them out to place them in the scene.  I'm very happy with how this looks!!  Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the hop!  There's lots of eye candy to see!
