The Crafter’s Companion has quite a few adorable stamp images on their site. One of the stamp groups is called Flower Fairy Friends and one of the images is called Candtuft. I used the image to create a card for Holly‘s Hope you Can Cling to Challenge.

A piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock was cut and embossed with the largest of the Lattice Rectangle Nestabilities dies. The image was stamped on that piece with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored with Copic Markers (Wings and Shorts: V01, V12, V15, Skin: E0000, E00, E01, Hair: YR24, E37, E39, E29 Stems: YG93, YG95, YG97 Bloom: Y00, Y11, Y13, Y15 Background: B0000, B000, B00, B01, V01, Y11). The inner edges of the rectangle were sewn and Silver Kaisercraft Rhinestones were added to the upper right hand corner. Stardust Stickles was applied to the wings, Yellow Stickles to the flowers.

A piece of Fly A Kite October Afternoon paper was adhered to a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Weathervane OA paper before both layers were stitched to a 3 /16″ bigger piece of black cardstock.  The image was adhered to the layers with dimensionals. I threaded White Organdy Ribbon through one of the lattice holes of the rectangle, tied a bow and topped it with a Basic Grey Button.

A sentiment from the same stamp set was stamped to a piece of cardstock cut and embossed with Petite Oval Nestabilities. It was ahhered under the bow and decorated with more Silver Kaisercraft Rhinestones.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day.
Hugs and smiles
