Heavenly Angel Sprites

 Wired glitter ribbon, spritzed gray paper and metallic color pens on the Angel with the dove. The very open metallic ribbon is stuck down with Sticky Specs by Ecstasy Crafts.
 Sprite with the Lyre is colored in prismacolor pencils, edged with glitter lines from Pop-ups-Etc, and mounted on shimmer gray paper embossed with a start pattern colored over with a gold pen.
 Angel with Lute background is inked with distress ink and with matching colors of  SU inks, the little angel is edged in silver line stickers from Pop-Up Etc.  The purple heavenly trumpeter is mounted on green foil paper and edged with gold lines.

I just love these little Angel Sprites that Mitzi Sato-Wiuff drew.  I have finished them all with prismacolor pencils, wink of stella, gold glitter pens, embossing folders, ---die cut with "Flower Pot" by Heartfelt Creations HCD732 (for the trapezoid shape.... and the word Believe was cut from the dieset by Cheery Lynn designs B612 Believe. Inside sentiment reads: "Wishing you a bright and beautiful Christmas and New Year that shines with happiness."  Stamp from SU "Bright and Beautiful (2)" stampset. You can find these digistamps (and many more angel sprites) at Aurora Wings

This is the Indian Corn Sprite created by Mitzi Sato Wiuff-colored with Prismacolor pencils, atop a string art frame over a digital paper designed by Karen Schulz in her kit "Backyard Party"  
This card is a 5x7, sentiment not chosen yet. 

I love the precious little Kitzuni Sprite by Mitzi Sato Wiuff (Aurora Wings) It is colored in Prismacolor pencils and accented in wink of Stella and Nuvo sparkle pens.  The background was created in Photoshop.  The string art frame is from the Alte New String Art Die, threaded and woven with ecru embroidery floss.  I have not chosen the sentiment for this card yet, and I might add nuvo drops at the base of each threadline and as intersection accents.
Another Fancy Fold Card a variation on a corner fold.  This is created with SU designer paper in Rich Razzleberry and yellow,  The Happy Birthday double die banner is bi Impression Obsession (#235-M).  The flowers are from punches, and the shaker fold down is filled with sequins and rhinestones, and edged with a bright gold line sticker (pop-ups-etc)
 This fun shaker card was created with Sizzix 662276 Window Shaker and Pocket dieset.  The background paper was created with Turnabout Stamp from Thankful Leaves Bundle by Concord & 9th.  Leaves are cutouts and punches from scraps.  The inside card that pulls out of the pocket is holds a gift card envelope (the bottom one) that opens UP to reveal the gift card inside.  This time I used 1mm beads that came from an Amazon collection of Multicolor Beading Glass Seed Beads.  There are twenty colors in the bead set and I just picked from the colors I used with the distress and distress oxide inks on the 4 turn turnabout background. 

Festive Wreath Slide Card

This special Birthday card was created with the Spellbinders Festive Wreath Die Set (June 2019 Large Die of the Month--by Spellbinders)  There are 21 dies and templates in this wonderful set.  The card was completed with  SU  papers, and stamps and vellum.
