My Favorite Things' Wednesday Stamp Club

Did you know about it? Get all the deets at the MFT Member Company Forum on SCS and play along each week--there's prizes to be won :)

This week we're working with Pure Innocence - Fairy Girl and a template that Kim created. It's free and you can find it here.

For my card, I printed the template on Very Vanilla card stock and cut it out. Then I traced another copy on a piece of Cosmo Cricket's Earth Love patterned paper and cut it out a bit smaller. After sponging the edges of both I added some ribbon and a button tied on with twine. Using Soft Suede, I cut the "stems" with a Labels Eight Nestabilities die and cut it in half.

I stamped the little fairy image on a Perfect Paper Panel with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and paper pieced her dress and colored the rest with Copic markers. I heat embossed her wings with some SU! Iridescent Ice embossing powder. For the little star, I cut/embossed it with the smallest Star Nestabilities die, heat embossed it with more Iridescent Ice, and then trimmed the embossed part off because it really was a little too large in scale, I thought. Lastly, I popped the little fairy and the mushroom images up on Pop Dots.

For the inside of the card, I cut two strips of another pattern and contoured the bottom to match the card base, then I sandwiched the stem inbetween. I then stamped the sentiment and it was done! I love this sweet little image and I love this little card.
