A new Fairy


This is my second Sugar Nellie post today. This was the stamp I bought yesterday, one I have wanted to buy for ages. The papers are new too and are so scrummy and glittery. They are First Edition Spring Feast, and they really are a fest for the eyes. I added lots of glitter to the fairy too so this card really sparkles. I used the fab sketch at CES. Flowers are from Wild Orchid whose challenge of Wings I am entering. I would also like to enter the pastel colour challenge at Flutter By Wednesday .
I love using this Marianne doily die but hate the way all the bits stick inside the die. If you don't then spend ages picking them out it doesn't cut properly the next time. Is anyone else as frustrated as I am by this? They're the only dies I have this problem with.

Hi Marianne, Beautiful card! Such a sweet image and gorgeous papers. I have this doily die but am ashamed to say I have never used it (hanging head in shame lol!).

Your card is gorgeous! I just love the delicate paper with that cute cute cute image! Beautifully done!
I have experienced the same problem with those dies...very frustrating. I also find that there is a cooper film on the paper after it goes thru as well. I do love them though!

Gorgeous card Marianne. It was great to meet you on Sunday and it is lovely to see what you did with this cutie and the papers look fab.
Have you tried putting a layer of baking paper between the die and the paper you want to cut. I have found it helps pop the bits out afterwards.
Hope this helps.
