I Believe In Fairies....

Thanks for coming by! Today I'm showcasing a stamp from the new release by FBStamps. Once again, a super cute release and great images! Nice job, F!

I chose to use the cute fairy stamp in my card today.
I stamped her a bit off the edge and then cut down to her, and then around her. I colored her using my Prismacolor pencils in a very soft pink. I then added a bit of Wink of Stella to her dress and wings.

After stamping her, I added the Make A Wish stamp in that same set. As if it were falling from her wand. I also stamped many of the dandelion bits, flying in many directions. Then I took my Sakura glitter pen and dotted lots of tiny "sparkle" also falling from her wand. The front panel was then foam mounted to the pink cardstock. And the entire front, on to a soft gray card base.

I then took a few of the stamps and stamped out the sentiment. I added the dot, dot, dot because I carried over to the inside. It is so hard to capture the amazing glitter on this front, but it is so beautiful! I also added a few tiny holographic stickers in pink. 

And so the inside...I do! I do believe in fairies, I do! Fun, right?! I thought so anyway. And then a few more of the sparkly stickers. 

I hope you like what I came up with. Head over to FBStamps and check out this release, and all the previous releases. I know you'll love what you see!

Happy Birthday Paper Piecing....

I've been a bit off in my crafting, lol. Wanna know why? My daughter had a new baby and she is now back to work...that means I'm back to work as well! Taking care of this precious baby. Cuts in on my crafting time, lol.

So anyway, I have a new card post for you today. I'm using stamps from the latest release by FBStamps. So many cute images! Make sure you go look after reading this post.

I took a set of Sizzix card dies I have and then cut a couple circles to fit. Then I stamped the largest gift stamp onto the patterned paper...two different prints. I hand cut the entire image from one and just the ribbon from the other. Then glued the ribbon on to the other piece. Foam mounted that to the green circle.

I then took the sentiment "Happy Birthday" and stamped it onto the other green circle. I took a couple of the stars and stamped those as well. For the strip down the center of the card, I measured and cut patterned paper to fit and cut banner ends. Glued those down to break up all that white space.

I went through my stash of enamel dots and gem stones and added a few scattered around. I also took a bit of twine and wrapped a bit around the front section and tied a small bow. Finished it off nicely.

So, there you have it. Quite easy really, by using the card die. Makes you look like a rock star, lol. There is ample space for writing your note on the back flap of the card. All links will be provided for the items used.
