Hello friends! Wow! We are getting so close to Thanksgiving now within a few days! I know that most people have been full steam ahead with making Christmas and I have really been quite festive myself with my own creations! Today, I wanted to suspend the ‘Merry Making’ for just a moment….
This little cutie digital stamp is appropriately named Precious Present from Whimsy Stamps and she’s another adorable fairy image by Sylvia Zet. You could certainly change up the colors to make her more festive, but I just felt like taking a “wee” break (LOL..Wee Stamps…see what I did there?!) and make something soft and light.
After coloring her up, I used the Whimsy Stamps Notched Square Dies to cut her out with and then layer with more panels behind her. I also took a glue pen and went along the edges of the image panel then covered with some clear glitter. I did the same with the purple strip in the background and the layer behind the sentiment panel, but just used some pretty sparkly purple glitter.
The background papers including the sentiment panel came from a pretty paper pad called “Fairy Garden” by Kaisercraft that I had purchased earlier this past Spring. Love how soft and light the colors and patterns are in it. I also found the perfect Stampin’ Up! cardstock color for my card base and one of the image layers called “Certainly Celery”. It’s an oldie but a goodie for sure! I finished it off with some more of that clear metallic ribbon (my fave) with a bow at the edge of the sentiment panel along with some twine and a button. I also added some flowers by Prima and a couple of pearls in the corners of the green layer behind the image.
Here’s a closer view of the coloring I’ve done for this image using Copic markers. I kept things really soft and simple for this. I did add some shimmer over her wings with a Spectrum Noir glitter brush pen and I used a pink metallic gel pen to color the “dots” above her head.
The layers were popped up with foam tape and I’ve also popped up the sentiment layer with foam tape over that as well. (You can see the glitter in the pink layer that was die cut too! This came from that paper pad I mentioned above.)
I hope you’ve enjoyed my non-Christmas card today! I think you could turn it into something festive and I thought about doing that, but then decided I wanted to use soft and light colors and turn it into maybe a birthday type card. Besides, I love soft subtle colors and lots of sparkle…so it was fun to put together! 🙂
It already has me longing for Spring and winter hasn’t even really started over my way yet! LOL!! I do have TONS of creations going on in my craft room and haven’t really been sharing them on my blog, but I hope to be getting to that very soon as we are approaching the December month and there will be so much to share! I’m excited to be sharing things with you soon!
Thanks so much for stopping in and have a wonderful day!
