New Wonders Fairy


The images have shadows, which makes for easy coloring with Stampin’ Blends, alcohol markers. First, I stamped the fairy and small leaf in Memento Black Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, and cut a square around the fairy, 2 3/4″ X 2 3/4″. Then, I backed the square with Highland Heather Cardstock for a 1/16″ border.’


Then, I fussy cut six, small leaves, and colored them with Light Old Olive. The fairy was colored with four “Light” Stampin’ Blends: Highland Heather (dress), Soft Suede (hair), Petal Pink (skin) and Soft Sea Foam (wings).


For the background, I used a Purple Posy card base, topped with Whisper White Cardstock that I embossed with the Stylish Scrolls Embossing Folder. The 4″ X 1 1/2″ piece beneath the square is from the In-Color 6X6 Designer Paper in a “scroll” pattern to match the card base color, Purple Posy. 

“Celebrate” is one of the sentiments in the New Wonders Stamp Set, stamped with Highland Heather Ink on Purple Posy Cardstock, and cut with one of the Ornate Frames Dies.


My Inspiration for the layout was from Global design project.


I’m also sharing with Seize the Birthday, because that’s what this little fairy is celebrating.


I almost overlooked the Stylish Scrolls Embossing Folder and Ornate Frames Dies, because they were on a Halloween page of the Holiday Catalog. I’m so glad I “found” them, because I love their versatility.
