Yay, it’s Saturday! I hope you are having a lovely weekend and managing to fit in some crafty time. Today I am sharing a card I made for happy mail recently.
I used a fairy die and stamp from Joanna Sheen as well as a stamp from the Garden Fairy set from Woodware.
I cut a diagonal from the card front and decorated the card base with patterned papers and some star die cuts. Then used paper piecing to give the fairy gold wings, a sparkly dress and dark hair and I coloured her skin with alcohol pens. Lastly I added some gold stickles to her wand.
Inside I added some white card so there is a space to write a message and added the Shhhh…. fairies stamp.
I hope you like this wee fairy. I’d love to hear what crafty projects you have been spending time on this week. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon.

Hi crafty people, hope Tuesday is treating you well! I’m back today sharing a couple of cards I made to send as happy mail to some lovely crafty people. Now I know that they have been received I can share here. I made them both using Gorjuss Girl stamps from Santoro. I wanted to make easel cards so I made two different ones to fit in with the size of the stamps.
For both cards I stamped the focal image with black Archival Ink and used watercolour pencils and a water brush to colour them in.
The first card I fussy cut out the foreground of the stamp and then stamped and heat embossed the cloud and raindrops in silver on a dark purple card stock. I added some heat embossed stars which were also in the stamp set. Then I layered up the gorjuss girl onto the background.
The second card I used some decorative papers to mat and layer in the card panels. The finishing touch was a few sparkly gems.
I hope that you like these two cards, it was my first time playing with these stamps they are larger than a lot of the stamps I use. I’d love to hear what you think.
