The Prairie Fairy Challenge this week is to make a tent card. This image is called "Summer Fun" and it is colored with Copic markers. I used SEI dp and cardstock from PTI. I also added machine stitching for texture and interest. Make sure you check out all the DT members and see their take on this challenge:) Also, make sure you stop into to the store and see all the wonderful digital stamps Prairie Fairy has to offer.

It's time for the new relase from Pixie Dust Studios!. The release is called "The Pearl". All of the images are inspired by a pearl.
I chose the Mermaid and Pearl new release images to create a card. I colored my images with Copic Markers. I added Clear Snap Smooch on my clam shell to resemble the pearlescent inside of a real shell. I also added Liquid Pearls for embellishment of the pearl the mermaid is holding and on the shell. The Thursday Challenge this week for PDS is to use pearls and I added lots, from the background of the card to the clam shell. I used K&Co. Annna Griffin design paper and PTI cardstock. I added machine stitching for definition. I also added die cut waves that were made with my Cricut and the "Life's a Beach" cartridge.
I participated in the Sweet Sunday Sketch and used their sketch for inspiration for my card.
Make sure to take a look at the Pixie Dust Studio Blog and take a look at all the wonderful images in the store. With a little magic and pixie dust anything is possible!

I admit it. I am a perfectionist and I am never quite satisfied with my cards. I always look for what could be better or different. It is rare that I am 100% satisfied with one of my creations. I am this time. As soon as I saw the adorable sea turtle image from MelJen's I fell in love with it. Sea Turtles are one of my very favorite animals. I hope each time I have the opportunity to snokel that I will see one. It is a dream. I used the Card Patterns Sketch for inspiration and used my favorite colors and glitter for the Tuesday Morning Sketchers Challenge.
I colored my images with Copic Markers and added lots of Stickles for the glitter. I made a ruffle with my blue ribbon to suggest a wave. I used the sea horse images to represent the scallop on the side of my card to fulfill the sketch requirements. I used dp from Anna Griffen for K&Co. and cardstock from Couture Cardstock.
Make sure to stop by MelJen's store. Her images are always inspiring and adorable.

I made a sneak peek card from the upcoming "The Pearl" new release. All the new images will be available on May 20th. I chose the Pearl Harbor image. I colored my image with Copic Markers. I used SEI design paper and PTI cardstock. I added machine stitching for definition. I also added ribbon, a carboard "belt buckle" and a Faith Bingo Card. I participated in the Saturday Sweet Stop Challenge. I used their sketch for inspiration and used the added twist "for the guys".
Make sure to check out all of the other DT members for inspiration. I cannot wait to see what you make for the challenge! You would be amazed what a little magic and pixie dust will do!
