Fairies Dancing in the Garden

 Hello. Today I have a mini slimline card for the Fairy Stamper Design Team. This whimsical card features several Fairy Hugs Stamps. 

To create this card, I used these stamps from Fairy Stamper: Trixie - used twice (FHS-192), Pixie (FHS-193), Dixie (FHS-191), Dance (FHS-199), and Flutter Dust (FHS-201). These are from www.FairyStamper.com

I used my Scan N Cut to cut out the fairies. I used Chiffon and Do-Si-Do inks to ink blend the fairy wings. I also used Nuvo Sparkle Pen to add sparkle to the wings.

The floral frame die cut is from Crafter's Companion. I ink blended on paper using these Catherine Pooler Inks: Peach Bellini, Chiffon and Do-Si-Do. I then die cut the floral frame on this ink blended panel. I used Sweet Sixteen and It's a Boy Catherine Pooler Inks, blender brushes and a cloud stencil from my stash to create light blue and light purple clouds on the background panel. I adhered the die cut frame to the ink blended cloud panel. I glued the fairies on top of the floral frame and added gems to the card. I also added twine cross the top of the card. 





Thank you for visiting my blog today.

Vibrant Butterfly Flourish Backgrounds

 

Hello, Tracy Shultz, The Hopeful Crafter, here to share several cards that I created with a stamp from the July 2021 Technique Junkies new release. I used the Butterfly Flourish Collage stamp from the July 2021 release to make these cards. I also used the Dream, Hope, Wish Wonderset of four sentiment stamps in the card below. There is a coupon code for 10% off your order.   


I created a YouTube video explaining how to create these vibrant backgrounds: 
This video provides several additional examples of cards. I created 11 cards in total. 


My rainbow colored backgrounds were ink blended using Catherine Pooler inks and domed foam blender tools. The other backgrounds were created with by ink smooshing with re-inkers from Catherine Pooler. The celebrate dies were from my stash.  I sprayed Dazzle Shimmering Bliss Spray from Technique Junkies on the backgrounds to create an iridescent shine on top of the ink. 

My final two cards for this blog post use sentiment stamps that were previously released. The sentiment on the card on the left is called "Always Hope"  https://techniquejunkies.com/always-hope/  and the sentiment on the right is from the Love, Faith and Peace Set of 12.  This sentiment says "Hope makes our lives a little brighter" I used watercolor paper, Catherin Pooler re-inkers and plastic wrap to create these Ombre yellow and orange backgrounds. 

 All the new July 2021 stamps are available here:
