Today is the Sneak peek day for Meljen’s new rubber stamp release with Whimsy Stamps. Melanie created some gorgeous fairies as rubber stamps. I think her fairies are darling and I am so excited to have some as actual stamps now!

The Sweet Stop sketch is one with lots of layers, including circular ones. I LOVE that!

I started by stamping the  Little Fairy Friend in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock. It was cut out with a Classic Rectangle Nestabilities die and the Out of the Box technique. The fairy was colored with Copic Markers (Dress: YG11, YG13, YG17, G24, G28, G29      Hair: Y17, YR15, E08     Skin: E000, E01, E02   Wings: BG10, BG11, BG13     Sky: B0000, B000, B12   Ladybug: R08, R24, R29)

It was adhered to a piece of Kraft cardstock that had been cut and embossed with a Scallop Rectangle Nestabilities die and the edge of the image was paper pierced.

Two pieces of yellow Echo Park Springtime paper were stitched to slightly bigger pieces of Kraft cardstock. The layers were embossed with Tim’s Retro Circles Embossing Folder.  A small circle was punched with a 1 3/8″ circle punch out of Echo Park Playground paper and stamped with a sentiment from Treasured Moment Tickets in Tuxedo Black Memento ink. The circle was adhered partially under the main image layers on the right hand side.

A bigger circle was cut and embossed out of the same paper with a circle Nestabilities die and adhered under the left corner of the image layers. All layers were adhered to a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ piece of Little Boy Echo Park paper, which was adhered to the card base, a 4 1/2″ x 11 1/2″ piece of Textured white cardstock from Stampin’ Up!

Kaisercraft Silver Rhinestones were added to the circular layers. A white organdy ribbon bow as adhered to the lower right corner of the image. Glossy Accents over the ladybug and Stardust Stickles over the fairy wings finish off the card front.

Because Whisper White cardstock from Stampin’ Up! is rather thin and my card front has a lot of layers, I had to ad a layer to the inside of the card to “stiffen” it up a bit. It’s just a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ piece of Kraft cardstock  layered with  a 2″ wide strip of Echo Park Springtime paper.

I hope you have time to participate in the sketch challenge. It’s a fun one! Get that patterned paper out and cut it up! Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!

Hugs and smiles
