Say that 5 times fast.

What did I do before I found Pink Cat Studio?!

Let me tell you Melissa was a hidden talent. Every month she just gets better and better. I LOVE her! She is also FAB to work for. Im a very lucky girl 😀

Now drumroll………………………..

Welcome Enchanted Lily!

(sorry small images-Im working with new editing software. I get them either TOO big, or too small! UGH!!)

Swing by some time-


She is the newest release from Pink Cat Studio , and will be available to YOU , on the 23rd!

Lily as a Fairy. Can it get any better? YES! Wait till you see next month! LOL! (Sorry I HAD to do that-Seriously though!)

When I saw this image it was ONLY natural to think interactive swinging card! I like to call it my Pendulum card, since you can get a variety of images to essentially do this-with a little imagination 😀

The problem was HOW to do it, and not have her be so flat, while showcasing her swinging talent and beauty!!!


The answer!

Make a triangle base with a cut out for a really cool look. Now she is always on display.

Now don’t ruin my fun and ask me HOW I would mail it. I wouldn’t! I don’t even mail FLAT cards to people! LOL! In all seriousness I would package her in a BOX and send her that way.


I used a blue faintly patterned paper to make like the “sky” in the background, as you peer through the cut out. I used the same paper for my side layers.

I stamped the tree branch from the image a few times. I then cut and layered it on top to hide the pendulum motion I created with some pennies, so she can swing side to side.

Spring is here. Doesn’t she look so free & happy?!


I used a stamp of some flowers I had (can’t remember WHO makes them Maybe Penny Black EEK! No idea :C) and left the leaves to hang into the oval I made, With the cut away  this appeared MORE 3D than it actually was. I didn’t want 3D flowers inhibiting her swinging!!

A little coloring and sponging and I think she looks like she is literally swinging from a tree in the forest!

She makes a nice “conversation” piece. This is now in my girls room!! They LOVE making her swing!!!

Here she goes………back


Then forth………………….


I LOVE her.

Now I must warn you-my other projects aren’t as fab as this one for the release! How can I top a swinging fairy card?! Seriously! I was pretty proud f this I must say.

I hope you enjoyed today’s post!
