There's Magic Inside you.....Anything Is Possible and Magical

Yep two Magical cards today. Now if you read yesterdays post you know I got up at 5am to make a card before to left for a weeks holiday. Today I am blogging the other two cards I squeezed into that morning craft session. See when you have the camper van all fully organised and packed the night before or two days before because your husband is so super organised and drives you nuts and all that has to go in is the fridge/freezer food, the dog, the humans and the computer that means you can craft for a couple of hours before you leave!!!!! 

Especially if some ideas come to mind. This one I had stamped and gold embossed this fabulous large flower from The Ton and I used Zigs and lots of water and I mean lots of water. There was lots of warpage (must be a word no underline in red for error!!) so lots of book time.

Photo was taken while camping so really hard to show the intensity of colour but it is stunning and of course I added Wink of Stella but only to the centre and slightly moving out. Looks magic.

 Used my crooked stitched rectangle die to frame the flower and attached to a card front with lots of tape. Die cut the Magical word from Gold mirror card and all done.
Perfect for a Magical wedding, Engagement, Love or Birthday.

This next card was inspired by yesterdays card. This time I have cut a circle acetate mask (I have done the oval, circle and square and rectangle shapes in a number of different sizes so I can reuse on cards, over and over- perfect No having to measure or waste post-it tape. 
All out of thin acetate, old overhead type material and cut on the Scan "N" Cut)

Anyway yesterdays card was oval blending todays is using a circle and soft Distress Ink blending on watercolour card. And if you read my post yesterday then just look at those water flicks, so much better. This time I have used a wonderful little Jeannie and her magic bottles in the clouds. They are from 'Craftin Desert Diva's' and they are so cute. 

As you can see lots of Wink of Stella on her outfit and the gems on the bottles. The gems sparkle too. I just had to have the gems falling from the sky. Its a perfect card for a special little someone and I know one special little person in my life who will fall in love with it when she comes home from her holidays.

I attached the clouds and Jeanie with dimensional foam and stamped the sentiment using the Misti as I knew with this watercolour card I would need to stamp a couple of times. The sentiment comes with the stamps and I love it.
I don't usually show the stamp sets and I don't get anything from showing this but I just think they are so cute and easy to colour and I love the nice and the snarky sentiments (I do enjoy snark).

So as you can see a simple card that has come together really nicely with that simple lightly blended background.

Now to see if there are any challenges for these cards


Theres Magic Inside You Card - lots of twinkle on there and those gems are
certainly old and being used up as I love how this turned out.
