Dragonfly Fearie

Hi Everyone
One day, just one day I would love to stumble upon a fearie... a land of cute little fairies that are all sparkles and mischief.... its a lovely daydream isn't it. There is just something about the though of fairies being real that fills your imagination with wonder and mischief. I think this land would be filled with all sorts of different looking fairies including one that looks like this!
To make this little Dragon Fairy Card I cut a piece of cardstock to the correct size for my card front and grabbed a piece of book paper.
I then covered the cardstock with the book paper
Then with an ink pad that has a hard surface I inked the top side (the label side) of my Couture Creations Ambassador Dandelion Embossing Folder.
While the ink was still wet I ran may book paper cardstock through it in my fav cutting machine.
once through I cleaned my emboss folder with a wet wipe.
I love the effect this has on the book paper it seems to jut soak up the ink and give such a crisp clean look. Once done I then used some of my Couture Goodness to create my Dragon fairy..
I used 2 of the dragonflies and cut off their little wings to make the skirt of my fairy and the of course one for the wings of the fairy and one I paced in the corner of my card. I coated them with hologram glitter before adding.
I then added a couple of little roses.
If I cannot stumble across a real fearie....
I can certainly make my own!!!
Thanks so much for stopping by have a fairy fantastic day!!

Hi Everyone
My 5 year old daughter is a huge Minnie Mouse Fan... So much so that she has one of the walls in her room painted with polka dots...She also has a Minnie inspired toy timber kitchen that she calls  Minnie's Café. A couple of weeks ago she mentioned very matter of fact that she did not have a bin for Minnie's Café.
(hint hint Mum, its no hard to get me to make these things... I mean who doesn't love Minnie Mouse?)
 So with the help of some Couture Creations Nesting Dies and some Glitter I made her Minnie's Bin.
I purchased a MDF waste paper bin from my local hardware store and painted it black.
I then cut 1 large Couture Creations Circle Nesting Die, quite a few of a smaller one and  1 small Victorian rectangle nesting die from Double Sided Adhesive paper.
I Then adhered them to my painted panels leaving the top backing paper in place. I layered Minnie's silhouette with the large Circle being her face, 2 of the smaller circles as her ears and the Victorian rectangle as Minnie,s Bow!
I then sprayed the entire panel with Spray adhesive and added Black Glitter.
For good coverage I repeated this process.
I then removed all the top backing papers from the Adhesive paper with the Couture Creations Pokey Tool from the Handheld essentials kit, all except for the Victorian Rectangle, I left the top of that in place.
Then I added silver glitter to the Adhesive paper and tapped off the excess. I then removed the top backing paper from the Victorian Rectangle and added red Glitter!
I repeated this process with all sides of my project and then sealed them with a few coats of Spray sealer. After they dried I assemble my project.
the perfect bin for Minnie's café!!!!

This technique can be transferred to cardstock for cards and Scrapbooking layouts using any of the Couture Creations Dies...just leave out the sealer!!
Thanks for stopping by... Have a Minnietastic Day!
