Hello blogging friends! Heidi, here today and I have a pretty Springtime and glittery fairy card to share with you. I am loving all the pretty little fairies in the Fairy Reflections Die and Stamp Collection. As an added bonus there is also a coordinating paper pack.
Here is a look at the card I designed using the fairy 1306E Aurora Reflections Stamp and 1206E Aurora Reflections Die Set. I also used 483E Scalloped Circles Layering Die Set, 524E Pinhole Circle Die Set,112 0E Filigree Flourish Die Set, and 1055E Fairy Wishes Illustrated Paper Pack.
To start I stamped the 1306E Aurora Reflections Stamp using VersaMark ink on to Strathmore mixed media paper. Then I added 600N Embossing Powder – Classic Gold and used my heat to to melt and heat set the powders. I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens to watercolor the image. The colors are listed below in the supplies.
Next I die cut the fairy shape using the silhouette die from the 1206E Aurora Reflections Die Set. No fussy cutting! The die cuts that fairy shape perfectly.
I used one of the sentiments from the 1055E Fairy Wishes Illustrated Paper Pack. To die cut and add some details to the dies cut shape I used the 483E Scalloped Circles Layering Die Set and 524E Pinhole Circle Die Set. When using these dies you will want to die cut the scalloped circle first and then you can match up the pinhole circle die to add the detail. For all of the die cutting I used the 147E Tangerine Machine and Bag Set and I also used the 160E Tim Holtz – 8″ Comfort Guillotine/Trimmer to cut all of my paper pieces.
For some finishing touches on the fairy and sentiment die cuts I added some 651N Crystal Drops Gloss – White to look like some white pearls.
I also used the 112 0E Filigree Flourish Die Set to cut a couple of floral flourished to add on the bottom and right side of the card. I used the same Strathmore mixed media paper and Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens to color the die cuts. I used a sheet of pattern paper from the Simple Stories Color Vibe 6 x 6 Paper Pad and added that to a pink cardstock base. I also added some green May Arts ribbon and sequins from Cartwright Sequins & Beads.
I love all the sparkle from the glitter and sequins.
Thanks so much for joining me today and I hope you enjoyed the card tutorial. Have a wonderful and creative day!
