There’s a Little Bit of Magic In Everything – Lou Reed

Memorable words, aren’t they?  One of the new stamp sets I received this week was “A Little Bit of Magic” with images of delicate and twinkling fairies, mushrooms, and flowers!  I fell in love with their adorable pixie faces, and just had to add it to my pre-order list!

This image was just crying out for some 3-d effects…

April17photoscbyu 012Isn’t she adorable?  They do need lots of diamonds… or pixie dust, don’t you think?  Here’s another card I made with the A Little Bit of Magic Stamp Set…

It’s one of the new punches which is be available in the spring mini catalog!  I made the leaf with the small circle punch that is part of the set… folded my paper in 1/2 and took a small bite just outside the crease to make a leaf.

Gorgeous cards Sharon and the magic really shines through. I love the color combinations and the glitter. This stamp set really caught my eye as it reminds me of some of the vintage children's fairy tale books in my collection.
The build a brad flower was a very cool idea. I thought at first you had mounted a dried flower then I read the explanation. Cool use of the new punch. Now you really have me excited about this new mini.

Hugs and blessings - Jean
