Fairy Hugs Listen

   Sharing a card using Fairy Hugs stamps available at Fairy Stamper.


Fairy Hugs Stamp: Listen



Using an assortment of Tim Holtz products, I started by die cutting the planks.
Next I embossed 3 of the largest planks and glued them together for dimension.
Once dried, I used brown ink on the planks and wrapped twine around them.


Die cutting an assortment of leaves in varying colors, I assembled them and placed them around the twine, some above and some below.  For a pop of color, I die cut a red flower.


Creating a cream card, I added a striped panel then a layer of burlap.
The planks were then adhered on a slight angle and the phrase added to the corner.

Change up the sentiment and this would be a great masculine card.

Thanks for stopping by.

Fairy Hugs Happy Bear Set

    Sharing a card using Fairy Hugs stamps available at Fairy Stamper.


Fairy Hugs stamps: Birthday Bear Set
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder


Stamp by stamping the bear and adding the words to the right.
I added a balloon to the edge.
To die cut the image (and not lose the balloon), I fussy cut around the balloon and slipped the die cut behind it so it cuts the design but not the balloon.


I used some cupcake paper and added it to a yellow card.
Using an embossing folder I embossed white cardstock and matted it with yellow cardstock.
Assemble the pieces to create the base of my card.
The stamped image was matted with a larger die cut.

I added some limited color to the image then added it to the card with foam adhesives for dimension.


Thanks for stopping by.

Fairy Hugs Travel Dragon

 Sharing a card using Fairy Hugs stamps available at Fairy Stamper.


Fairy Hugs Stamps: Oriental Dragon Set, Fairy Poem


Create a background using the Japanese lanterns, stamping in black ink.


Color the lanterns with Copic Markers.


I wanted to "fill in" the background some more, so I stamped the Fairy Poem on top by first off-stamping it for a more subtle effect.


The dragon is sweet so I stamped her, masked her off and stamped the mountains in the background.  She was then colored with Copic Markers.
To ground here, I inked under her with brown ink.
The image was then die cut and matted with a larger die.
Travel was die cut and added to the card.


Thanks for stopping by.

Scor-Pal Diamond Card

 Hi everyone, it's time for a new Scor-Pal challenge.  Create anything as long as it has more than one scored line.


Supplies:  Scor-Pal
Prima Flowers
Stamp


Cut cardstock 4" x 12".
Score at 2", 4", 8" and 10".
Mark the 6" center at the top and bottom.
Starting at the top of the 2" scored panel, score to the 6" center mark.
Rotate the panel and score from the 6" center mark to the bottom of the 2" scored panel.
Repeat once more.


Start by gently folding the card as follows:
Fold the 2 end panels forward.
Fold the triangular sections individually.
Once everything has been gently folded, use a bone folder for good creases.


Cut pattern paper panels to finish the card:
2 pieces 1 3/4" x 3 3/4" for the outside panels
3 pieces 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" (cut 2 pieces in half; cut 1 piece in quarters)


Use Scor-Tape to adhere all the pieces to the card, leaving the diamond center free.


Die cut a scalloped yellow square to fit the diamond center.
Be sure it is a little larger than the diamond center as it will then cover any mistake you might have made.
Cut pattern paper to fit and adhere to card.
Stamp and mat the phrase.
Add flowers with a large brad.


To create the envelope:
Cut cardstock 7 1/2" x 7 1/2".
Place the Scor-Envi in the upper corner and align the cardstock.
Per the directions, score at 3 1/2" and 8 1/2".
Rotate the panel and repeat.


Cut away the areas where the scored lines overlap.


Fold in the center panels.
Place Scor-Tape along the edges and seal the bottom layer.


Pretty, isn't it?

Thanks for stopping by.
