Spring Fairy

I love lilac and baby blue together, I forgot just how much till I made this card using one of the March release fairies from Whimsy Stamps.  The stamp I’ve used for today’s card is Spring Fairy


The papers are from an older First Editions paper pad – I’ve had this one quite a few years now.


I used the following copic colours for this one
Skin: E13, 11, 00, 000, R20
Hair: E47, 44, 42, 40
Lilac: V17, 15, 12, 01, 0000
Blue: B14, 12, 41, 0000
Bunny: C3, 1, 00

The wings have a coating of distress glitter, the rest of the image is just plain old sparkly because of the delish cryogen card I used to stamp on.  The pearlescent sheen that catches the light makes for such a pretty image.


I cobbled a banner together using a Cheery Lynn die by chopping the end off to shorten it to fit the sentiment then gluing the end back on … you can hardly even see it wasn’t made to fit unless you really look for it Winking smile


I popped a little “bottle of wishes” onto the card – we all need a few spare wishes now and then!


Have a lovely bank holiday weekend, I’ll be back on Sunday with a card for April’s Whimsy Stamps release.

Shabby Happy Birthday

This poor post has been sat in limbo for almost two weeks.  Somehow I managed to schedule it for next to never, oopsie!  I love these Envelope Edger dies from Whimsy Stamps, they are the perfect addition to a layer for my frou-frou cards. 

This card was a quick one to make, even with the machine stitching.  I added some extra detail to the tag by using the Farmhouse Greenery Stencil over the patterned paper.  Some mulberry flowers and a resin frame finished off the card.


I popped some tiny polystyrene beads amongst the flowers and then slathered on the stickles.


I finished off the inside to match the front.

Fairy and her bunny and Whimsy Stamps news

I’m on a roll with the fairies lol.  Here’s another of these little sweeties from Whimsy Stamps, this is Fairy and her bunny.  I went for a more softer colour palette for this card, as opposed to the last fairy card in pink and green.


The copics used to colour the image are
Purple: BV13, 02, 01, V20, Voooo
Yellow: YR31, 30, 0000
Hair: E29, 25, 21, 50
Skin: E13, 11, 00, 0000, R20
Bunny: C3, 1, 0


I love the bling the cryogen cardstock gives off, I didn’t even need to use the old Wink of Stella pen!  Just some distress glitter for the wings and bunny tail.


The paper is Craft&You Vintage time, and the gorgeous silk ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl.

Make a wish fairy

I’m back with another of those adorable little fairies from Whimsy Stamps, this one is Make a Wish Fairy.  Love these little cuties so hard!  I’ve gone with a pink and green colour theme, rather bright for me but I love these colours together.  The papers are a First Edition pad that I’ve had for a while.


I used the following copic markers to colour up the image (the bling is the actual Cyrogen cardstock – well, apart from the wings which got an extra dose of bling)
Hair: E33, 53, 51, 50
Skin: E13, 11, 00, 000, R20
Pink: RV34, 32, 10, 000
Green: YG67, 63, 03, 01
Bunny: C3, 1, 00


I finished off with some die cut stars and a little die cut heart along with some mulberry flowers.


I have a few more fairy cards to share later on.

Very special friend

It’s new release time at Whimsy Stamps and there’s some fabulous new goodies to play with from more of the sweetest new fairies, stencils, delicious background stamps as well as DoveArt, new images and sentiments stamps.

I’ve linked the products used on my shabby chic card at the end of the post.  I’ve used one of the new sentiment stamp sets and gorgeous Farmhouse rubber background stamp.  I stamped the background over patterned paper with Pumice Stone distress ink.  LOVE how it jazzes up the paper and totally transforms it.


I used the “friend” sentiment from the new Fly By stamp set, and teamed it with a sentiment from an older stamp set.  These new stamps mix and match with other stamps so well! 

I also used the new Envelope Edger dies for the top layer of the card.  These are simply gorgeous!


A couple butterflies fussy cut from some (un)matching patterned paper just finished off the card and picked out the peach in the flowers and paper.


I’ll be back Monday with a card featuring one of the new fairies.
