More Fun With Sizzix Garden Fairy Movable Die

Today I made another Fairy from Sizzix, using the Garden Fairy Movable Die by Susan Tierney Cockburn. I fixed my last fairy (Click Here) and now she has her legs on correctly and I gave her a fuller skirt. I like the fist one I did the best so far, the colors and flower.

This time I added Swarovski Crystals the fairy and put her legs on correctly. I also made more of a skirt with the flower I used, the Lovely Aster Die by Memory Box. I don't know, maybe I should get some of flowers from the Garden Fairy Collection! or I have to just keep fiddling around till I get the look I am going for, but when I can spend some more $$ I will get a few of the cheaper flower dies from the Garden Fairy Collection. Is anyone that collects dies and makes crafts like me? have a running wish list?
I am not all together happy with this fairy, but I am glad I got her legs on right. The thing I don't like about her is the flower, it's a pretty flower die, but don't like it on the fairy.

 I added the crystals over the top of the brads and in the center of the flower and then on her slippers I put tiny Swarovski Crystals stars and on her fingers.
I am not a huge purple fan, but I think she turned out cute. I think I am more a pink, yellow, gold, grey, black and occasional blue person. However my mom and all the girls in our family love purple. 
Again I used the Graphic 45, Secret Garden Paper. I like that paper, but it's not quite as fantastic as I thought it would be. My favorite from the pack is the words paper, that is really pretty. I used some of that on her legs and arms.
I did her the same as the one I did on Friday I posted here. I had no idea it was a new die. I have not even been able to see any other sites with it decorated. I would love to see how others did her, I am not even sure I am putting her legs together correctly. LOL!

She is big measures 6" x 13 3/4"

Yesterday was hot it got to 113 Degrees. Today is 20 degrees cooler. This week it won't be in the 100's  but might get to the 90's again. I think it's gonna be a long hot summer here in NorCal. Yikes! but we are used to it here. NOT ME!

I have my Tuxedo decorated to go with the wedding dress you can view that here and I will share that later in the week.

  5. I didn't realize the legs had problem last time, I do like the flower, but I know how it is when something just isn't coming out like you had invisioned!
