Flourishing Fairy Celebrations

Welcome back to my blog crafters

Today I am sharing a card made for a sweet little girl who is turning 7 on Thursday.

I created this card using the 'Fairy Celebration' stamp set mixed with 'Falling Flowers' stamp set and the matching May Flowers dies

Happy Birthday

For the original card I chose to use the same colour as a layer as the colour I used for the flowers and spots.

I adored how this turned out. By adding a small flourish and flower to the top left corner inside the card  I carried the theme through nicely.

I loved it so much that when I had completed it I decided to make 3 more to put with and order for my outlet. I had been asked for a certain few cards and birthday cards for younger girls was one request.  These are perfect!

I also make cards for friends, family and of course my customers, just to say thank you 😍. 
Then there is the Random Act of Kindness cards too... A wonderful group I am part of that exists soley to bring a smile to others. We share ideas using current Stampin' Up! product and it is so much nicer to find a card in your ail box than a bill!. 
You join, add your name to the files and monthly event and then randomly select  a few names of a list of particpating people. Then send them out the cards, it's that simple! Oh the theme is ecouragement...not birthdays, christmas etc.. Only as some people don't celebrate these times and occasions.

Below you can see some of the steps that are taken to create these cards. I wrote a description for the steps under the picture.

Creating Steps

#KOCreationcards #Imbringingbirthdaysback #Fairycelebration #Fallingflowers #Mayflowerframelits #Watercolouring

  1. Trim all cards stock to size and then stamp and die cut flowers.
  2. Stamp images, then mask and daub colour inside masked area. I used Wild Wasabi for this.
  3. Colour images...I coloured with a single colour at a time....moving through the images.  Once completed I added Clear Wink of Stella over the top of the flowers and Fairy wings. The cards are very sparkly IRL...I tried to capture it, but failed ...sorry.
  4. Die cut the are previously masked. Then die cut out a scalloped oval in matching coloured card stock to flowers and spots. Also cut an oval in the diamond glitter paper.
  5. Assemble layers.
  6.  NOT PICTURED. I covered the fairy wings and spots with Fine-Tip glue.
