The Pixie Cottage Designers Showcase Saturday

Hello again,

It seems like ages since The Pixie Cottage has featured a Designer's Showcase but we're back on track! Keep in mind that the designers showcase is not a challenge, the DT simply showcases new and coming Pixie Cottage Stamps.

When I pictured my image (Beary Tiny) in my mind, the image of a baby quilt came to view. I cut out the images that represented spring and new beginnings from DCWV Nana's Kids design paper and pieced together a quilt. After I arranged the pieces, I sewed them together and finished assembling my card.

To give Beary Tiny some dimension, I stamped her twice and adhered the top layer over the original image. I also added spring flowers,ribbon,a button and Stickles as embellishments.

The Pixie Cottage Design Team went "all out" with the designers showcase this week and their cards are totally adorable! To see more of the designers fabulous creations, click here.
