Grog's Dream {Fairy Stamper}

 


Hey everyone, today it is my turn to share a project with the Fairy Stamper Hugs Facebook group and I've created this cute water scene featuring Grog. I have to admit that when I saw Grog in the store, I wasn't thrilled with him but I took a chance and I love how he looks in person! There are so many fun ways you can color various aspects of him. I love his piercing blue eyes that he has on this card.  All the stamped images were colored with colored pencils and paint pens.

For today's project I used the following Fairy Hugs stamps. You can find all of these at Fairy Stamper

Grog - FSH-031
Leafy Canoe - FSH-067
Bridge - FSH-039
Fairy Hugs Stencil - Pebble Beach
Fairy Hugs Stencil - Woody
Fairy Hugs Stencil - Galaxy


I started this project by blending various Distress Oxides onto a piece of white cardstock. I would figure out placement of the shore and the water line by using the pre-printed images that come on top of each stamp. They are perfect to use when you want to figure out where you want your image to be stamped.

In the water area, I used the Woody stencil sideways because it reminded me of small ripples in the water. The Pebble Beach stencil was used to give more depth to the beach area and the Galaxy stencil was used for the night sky. Since the background was purple, I heat embossed the Galaxy stars with white embossing pwder and then added a bit of a yellow Spectrum Noir sparkle marker to a few of the stars. 

I stamped Grog and the Leafy Canoe onto a piece of white cardstock and fussy cut these out. As previously mentioned, I gave Grog some added color with colored pencils and the canoe was given added color using fine tipped paint pens. The Bridge was stamped with Versafine Clair and heat embossed with a brown embossing powder. A brown colored pencil gave it a bit more definition.

My sentiment is a die cut from Tonic Studios (kit #19 - sweet sentiments).

Pet Bridge {Fairy Stamper}

 


Hey everyone, today it is my turn to share a project with the Fairy Stamper Hugs Facebook group and I've used the Bridge (FHS-039) stamp image in a non-traditional fairyland way. Instead I created a sympathy card for a dear friend whose pup went over the Rainbow Bridge.

For today's project I used the Bridge by Fairy Hugs stamps. You can find all of these at Fairy Stamper



I stamped the image onto white cardstock and then fussy cut it out. Color was added using colored pencils.  The rest of the card uses die cuts from My Favorite Things (Clouds, Paw Prints) and Lawn Fawn (Rainbow).

Ginko's Night Time Adventure {Fairy Stamper}

 

Hey everyone, it's my turn to share a project with the Fairy Stamper Hugs Facebook group today and I've created this night time scene featuring the following Fairy Hugs products. You can find all of these at Fairy Stamper

Ginko & Kenzie (Ginko) - FHS-099
Stream Scene - FHS-071
Fairy Hugs Stencil - Galaxy


I began by using a large piece of black cardstock as the Stream Scene stamp is quite large (6.75" x 3.6"). There are so many different ways to use this stamp. I used the entire image, but you could easily use various areas, depending on the type of scene you're creating.

After stamping the Stream Scene, I colored in various wareas using colored pencils.  I love how it adds color, but they are still muted, as they would be in the dark.

Next I wanted to add the Galaxy stencil, but I didn't want to use all of it.  I created a quick mask of the Stream Scene image so that I could mask off the banks. I heat embossed the stars in a yellow sparkle embossing powder.

Ginko was stamped separately onto a piece of scrap cardstock and fussy cut out. I added color and a bit of sparkle with Spectrul Noir sparkle markers and then adhered him flying above the stream and stars with a couple of pop dots.

Happy Easter {Tutti Designs}

 



Hi everyone, today I'm filling in on the Tutti Designs Blog.  Since Easter is this weekend, I created a cute Easter card.

I used these cute Tutti Designs dies for today's project:

Cottontail

Cross Stitch Nesting Tags


Dotted Nesting Rectangles


I began this card by creating my flowery background for the Tag using layering stencils and Distress Oxides. 


Once this was completed, I die cut it with the Cross Stitch Nesting Tags and then set that aside.


Now the really fun part is next...putting together these adorable cottontail bunnies. I die cut this several times....in white, black, and grey cardstock. Then I began assembling them. It's so fun to have some many variations for the ears so that you can position them in so many ways. I used the black die cuts to give shadows to my white and grey bunny.



Believe it or not, I didn't have any Easter sentiment dies (this has been remedied and they are on their way now). So I created a computer generated sentiment and then die cut it with the smallest Dotted Nesting Rectangles die.


All that's left is to assemble everything. For the card base, I used my deckle trimmer to trim the edges.


Please be sure to pop over to the Tutti Designs Store and check out all of the fabulous dies available. Need more inspiration?  The team has something new to share on the Tutti Designs Blog  EVERY DAY MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY!   Pop in often and see for yourself ... what a talented group of designers!!

Birthday Wishes {Fairy Stamper}

 


Hey everyone, today it is my turn to share a project with the Fairy Stamper Hugs Facebook group and I've created this fun birthday slimline card.

For today's project I used the following Fairy Hugs stamps. You can find all of these at Fairy Stamper


For this cute birthday card, I started out by diecutting the background with Tutti Designs Slimeline dies (Slimline Cross Stitched Rectangles and Slimline Stitched Wobby Frame).  The sentiment is a die cut from My Favorite Things (birthday wishes).

The birthday package is a die from Neat & Tangled that creates a 3D die cut.  I stamped Moana on one side and used the small butterfly from the Sivelle stamp set for the other side. Distress Inks and Oxides were added to the flaps of the birthday box.  All the images were given color using Spectrum Noir Sparkle Markers.

For the tissue paper coming out of the box, I used the Fairy Hugs stencil (Galaxy).  I cut out a piece of plain tissue paper slightly larger than the stencil and then I sponged Versafine Clair (Cheerful) through the stencil openings. This was then heat set with Clear embossing powder. I then folded it up and adhered it to the inside of my 3D box.  The added tissue paper really makes the whole card pop.

Let the Music Play {Fairy Stamper}

 


Hey everyone, we've switched things up a bit on the Fairy Stamper Hugs Facebook group and the Design Team will now begin posting weekly.  My scheduled day to post will be Sundays, but I'm sure I'll be adding other projects during the weeks as well :-).  We will continue to have the Fairy Stamper Challenge bi-weekly on Thursdays. These are also held in our Fairy Stamper Hugs Facebook group, so be sure to join us!

For today's project I used the following Fairy Hugs stamps. You can find all of these at Fairy Stamper


I started this streamline card out by using Distress Oxides and one stencil for the sun rays and a different one for the clouds. 

Next I stamped the Wishing Well and the Stone Wall. I think the Stone Wall is such a versatile stamp and can be used in so many different types of scenes. It is also cut in such a way, that you can seamlessly continue the wall and have it as long as you want it. Colored pencils were used to give a bit of color to the stones on both the walls and the wishing well.

I stamped and heat embossed Azalea, Corwin, and Wilwin on a piece of white card stock. Then I fussy cut them out. Bilmin I stamped directly onto the top of the Wishing Well and also heat embossed him.

I colored Azalea's wings with Spectrum Noir Sparkle markers for lots of sparkle and as a finishing touch, I added a few star shaped sequins.
