Faerie Frolics

I thought I'd share a few designs using our Faerie dies today. The first is a diorama card in A4 size

The edges are punched strips using the Tonic Simplicity Star Border Punch. These punches are so easy to use. If you have any problems with strength in your hands and have difficulty punching the Simplicity range are most definitely the ones for you. They have a geared system with reduces the amount of force that's needed to press them handle down. They will also punch card up to 400gsm - which is very thick card!!
Moonglade Wish is such a magical fairy surrounded by the stars. I've cut the whole set of dies out of mirricard then decoupaged the fairy in navy and cut her wings twice from parchment paper, they give a lovely effect.
The leafy sprig is from the Verdent Vines die set and the flowers are cut from parchment paper using the Petal Pairs punches.
Make a Wish comes from the Everyday Sentiments die set.

This is a cute little fairy from the Fae Hideaway set, sat on a Pillow Box. I've cut the wings out of acetate and glittered them. The Pillow Box is made using Tonic's Pillow box die set. They are so easy to make and perfect for a little gift for a Special girl.

I'm off to visit friends in the fabulous Dandie Crafts shop in Pontypridd. It's an Aladdin's cave of craftiness.

Have a fabulous weekend
Catch up with you soon
