It's Crafters Companion Monday, bringing you more of the 'Enchanted Forest' collection


These cards are featuring the 'Fairy Dust' and the 'Fairyland' dies from the "enchanted Forest signature collection by Sara Davies


The use of the 'Mirror' card and the 'Glitter' card is such a wonderful effect.


The product used in both these card scan be found HERE and HERE and HERE


The mirror card is wonderful for the matting, it lets the the glitter card pop out to show off the wonderful fun die...the pretty organza ribbon bow gives it a nice finish with out taking the spotlight away from the dies.


....not to forget the adorable dandelion dies...the set has stamps to go with it.
These cards measure 13.5cm x13.5cm so they will fit into a post size envelope.
Scrappy happy inky love to you all...
till next time, inky hugs.
Sussipoppins.

Cash or a gift voucher and now you can wrap it up in a card made with love.


Please NOTE! This is a limited edition and will not be available anymore after the 8th of December 2018. After that it becomes a collectors item....
So if you do not have this and have been wanting to invest in your Heartfelt Creations stash...now is last your chance to get this beautiful timeless collection. 
A couple points of interest, this is the first of the die sets to match the stamps in the new Heartfelt Creations branding about 4 years ago and the Heartfelt Creations own exclosive pink die designs.
when this collection was released it sold out with in weeks! The peacock dies were released later than the original release....food for thought. I for one am sorry to see this go but I am sure there will be something just as exciting to replace this collection.

I am so in love with these water cooler markers.....it was easy to travel with them. I was colouring this while getting a tan on a beach in Greece on vacation last month. Yes...taking a break every now and then, keeping myself cool by taking a dip in the gorgeous clear clean sea water sure was an inspiration. If you have visited Greece, you will know what I mean.
Till next time...inky Sussipoppins hugs to you,
