Lets start with the houses. Those were made with a scrap of inked Yupo paper from another project and here's the link to Tim's technique tutorial. After the inked Yupo is dry, stamp two houses in VersaMark and emboss in gold. Die cut and set aside. Stamp the fairies and flowers in black dye-based ink. Color with SN Markers and die cut. Add Wink of Stella glitter to their wings. Die cut the hello using the hello die and gold cardstock. Die cut a sheet of blue plaid paper with the largest of the AE Wonky Stitches dies. Die cut the green cardstock using the largest of the Stitched Rectangle dies. Die cut a panel of the Doodlebug using the same Wonky Stitches die. Die cut the same piece with the border die and adhere to the blue piece flush at the bottom and foam dots towards the top edge to add dimension. Cut a piece of fun foam slightly smaller than the blue piece and adhere to the back. Center this piece in the middle of the green and adhere. I used a single layer of foam squares behind the purple and green fairies and a double layer behind the pink; this will give movement to the fairies and make the pink appear closer. I also used a single layer behind the flowers. The houses are adhered with flat adhesive and the hello is adhered using liquid glue.
I had so much fun playing with this set, combining new stamps with other products already in my stash and engaging several different textures to produce a whimsical and magical card.
Thanks for stopping by and hanging out with me today! I hope you had fun and learned something new. Feel free to ask questions and let me know what you think!
