Christmas Fairy

     This sweet little Christmas Fairy comes from Sweet Pea Stamps and is for their Progressive Challenge.  Sadly, this may be the last of the challenges since Sweet Pea Stamps is going to be closing this month.  But it gives me a chance to get one more Christmas card done so I'm happy to use it.  :-D

     I colored her with ProMarkers, a touch of watercolor on her hair, and added sparkle gel ink to her fairy wand, her wings, to the little stars and to the Shiney Stuff can.  Unfortunately, the sparkle doesn't show up very well in the photo but it's really wonderful IRL.

     I used one of my framing dies from Spellbinders to cut out the image and also to die cut the sentiment.  After I embossed both of those, I rounded the corners of a red card blank and mounted the image directly onto the card front.  I tied the lovely little red bow and adhered it to the top corner.  I really wanted to let that fancy die cut do all the work so I did no other embellishment.

     I'm not sure if this little fairy travels by flying or by a wave of her magic wand but I'm sure happy she traveled to my house this month.  :-D

     I hope your weekend is going well.  I'm spending lots of time with my oldest granddaughter doing fabric shopping and then starting on a sewing project for her.  She's just learning to sew and I'm having the time of my life teaching her some of the tricks and techniques that I learned over the many years of sewing I've done.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

I can't even imagine teaching one of my granddaughters to sew since I rarely know what I'm doing myself in that area! Have fun though.

Cute and pretty, pretty little fairy and card. Love the die you used with this one too Connie. SOOOOOO pretty!

What a wonderful image, love the die and isn't it annoying when your cards are sparkly and look beautiful and the piccie doesn't show it. It doesn't take away how beautiful the card is though.

How darling, Connie! Love the spray of magic! That die cut really does look candy-cane-ish, doesn't it? I love how it swirls almost like ribbons of candy! Sweet, and fun -- just like you! Thanks for joining us in the Scrapy Land Challenge! Hope to see your pretty projects again.
happiness and hugs,
