Fairies for all celebrations

Good Morning!

Today’s cards were inspired by this weeks #GDP075 Inspiration Challenge, Winged Creature.


Okay, so they probably weren’t thinking fairies, but these are my favourite winged creatures!  I did get a little carried away and made a whole pile of them, these 3 are my favourites.

All 3 were coloured using my watercolour pencils (141709) and used dazzling diamonds glimmer paper (135315) Isn’t it gorgeous, are you picturing a hundred ways to use it?  And of course all 3 used the Fairy celebration set (141554) and while I know these sentiments are meant for birthdays I think you could use these for any occasion!

This first girl is a bit of fun and playful fairy, I have used rose red cardstock (108613) for the backing and rose red ink (126954) for the greeting.


This second fairy uses the stitched framelits (145372 ) pool party cardstock (124391) for the butterflies and sparkles I have used versamark ink (102283) and pool party ink (126982) by using the versamark ink it stays sticky enough to cover in heat and stick powder (100625) which once heated with the heat tool becomes like tacky glue, perfect for holding the dazzling diamonds stampin’ glitter (133751). I’ve finished it off with a greeting in Bermuda bay (131171) and bermuda bay cardstock (131286) for the base.


And I must say that number three is my favourite – even though orange is normally at the bottom of my list!  The greeting and butterflies, from the perpetual birthday calendar set (137167), for this one are inked in tangerine tango (126946) with a tangerine tango base (116206
