Danni asked me to be a guest designer for her challenge blog Flutter By Wednesdays today. Theme is fairies, butterflies or angels. A Challenge and fairies? I am so IN! LOL I don’t know why, but I LOVE fairy images.

For my post I chose to show off a card I created a while ago while cyber stamping with Jenn and Lori. I used a digi image from Meljen’s Designs sold at Whimsy stamps called Firefly Fairy.

I printed the image out on Neenah Solar White cardstock and, cut it out with Classic Circle Nestabilities die and colored it with Copic Markers (Dress: BV02, BV04, BV08, trim, hair and shoes: YG23, YG25, YG17, Wings: YG0000, YG00, YG01, firefly: BV0000, BV01, BV02, BV04, Light: Y00, Y11, Y13, stick: E33, E35, E39).

The image was layered on a Canyon Brown cardstock cut and embossed with the next size Circle Nestabilities and paper pierced. The layers were then adhered to a Kraft Eyelet Circle cardstock.

A 3″ x 4 1/2″ strip of Echo Park Springtime paper was adhered to a 4 1/2″ square of the same paper pack. A strip of white lace was adhered underneath the horizontal strip before the layers were stitched to a 1/4″ bigger piece of Canyon Brown cardstock. Blue Silk Ribbon was tied around the strip before the the layers were adhered to the card base, a 5″ x 10″ piece of Kraft cardstock, folded in half.

The sentiment is from the Whimsy set Handmade Letter Seals. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black ink on a piece of Solar White cardstock that had been cut with one of the Tag Trio dies. The tag and a Cosmo Cricket button were attached to the ribbon bow with iridescent curling ribbon. A Recollection Rhinestone swirl on the top left of the card finish off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have time to play with Fairies, Butterflies or Angels this week. Have a wonderful day! Hugs and smiles

Isn’t that a darling image? It’s a new digital image from Meljen’s Designs sold by Whimsy stamps called Birthday Cup Mouse. When I saw Friday’s Free for All Challenge (Birthday cards for kids),

I printed out the Birthday Cup Mouse with my new Laserjet Printer (LOVE it!!!, no more smearing) on Neenah Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed it out with the largest Classic Circle Nestabilities die and colored it with Copic Markers (Mouse: N1, N3, N5, YR000, YR00, YR01, Cup: BG10, BG11, BG13, Candles: E21, E25, E29, Y38, YR07, YR18, Candle Flame: Y13, Y15, Y17, Candle Glow: Y00, Background: B0000, B000, B91). The image was layered on a piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock (Stampin’ Up!) cut and embossed with the largest Beaded Circle Nestabilities die and the edges were paper pierced.

Different patterned paper from My Mind’s Eye Fine and Dandy True Blue paper pack was cut down to 1″ squares. A 5″ square of white cardstock was run through my Xyron machine and the 1″ squares were adhered to it. The squares were stitched over diagonally, then cut down to a circle with the smallest of the Grand Classic Circle  Nestabilities die.  The circle was adhered to a piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock. I placed the die used for the quilted square circle back on that circle and used it as a guide to cut down my Chocolate Chip layer.

Light Orange Core’dinations cardstock was folded in half and cut with a Grand Scallop Circle  Nestabilities die. Brown May Arts Organdy Ribbon was tied around the quilted card layers and topped with a October Afternoon button. With the button the sentiment tag was tied on the bow as well.

The sentiment is from Whimsy’s Oval Snippet. It was stamped on Neenah Solar White cardstock with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and cut and embossed with one of the Tag Trio dies. Lots and lots of Silver Kaisercraft Rhinestones finish off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!

Splitcoast’s sketch challenge this week was a great sketch based on one of Jenna Barber’s cards. I had downloaded a few of Melissa’s (Meljen’s Designs) images and was itching to try out this darling fairy. After coloring the image, I ordered me two more of these sweet fairies in the Whimsy Stamp store. I bet you will see those here soon.

I printed her out on Neenah Solar White cardstock, cut the image with Label 17 Nestabilities die and colored her with Copic Markers (skin: E0000, E00, E01, E02, Hair: YR15, YR18, E18, Shirt: YG11, YG13, YG17, YG67, G28, G29, Butterfly: Y13, Y15, Y17, YR12, YR16, YR18, BG10, BG11, BG13). The image was layered on Basic Grey cardstock (Stampin’ Up!)  and cut freehand for an extra layer. The edges of the label were paper pierced.


The card base is a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock. The right hand corners were rounded with W R Memory Keepers Cropadile Corner Chomper. A 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Core’dinations cardstock was stitched to the card base after the right hand corners were rounded as well.

A 3 1/2″ long strip of White cardstock was cut with the Faux Crochet Die-namics die and stitched to a 1 1/4″ x 3 3/4″ piece of Cosmo Cricket Everafter Patterned Paper. The layers were adhered to a 3 1/2″  x 4 3/4″ piece of Everafter Paper.  That was stitched to a 1/4″ bigger piece of Basic Gray cardstock.

The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps Oval Snippets. It was stamped in Rusty Hinges Distress ink and punched out with Stampin’ Up!’s oval punch. The oval was layered on a piece of Basic Gray cardstock, punched with the scallop oval punch.

Recollections Rhinestone swirls were adhered underneath the sentiment as well as on the top left and bottom right of the top layers. The image was adhered to the card base with dimensionals. Three Recollections flowers were twisted together and adhered to the lower left hand side. Organdy ribbon was tied with the Bow-Easy and topped with another Recollection flower before it was adhered to the bottom of the sentiment.

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