Stamp & Create Product Spotlight ~ Emerald Fairies

Happy Monday! Hope your week-end was lovely. We had another full two days and a series of adventures!

Today I have my Stamp and Create Product Spotlight Card to share with you.

This week's Product Spotlight is: Emerald Faeries and they will be 25% off this week!

I chose to use the Kenz & Tilly stamp to create a center-stair-step card. The image was colored with Copic Sketch Markers to match the colors on the patterned paper which is from Kaiser Craft's Velvet Ensemble 6x6 pad. Now that it is Autumn (or almost nearly so) I thought to use some richer, more earthy tones and this paper pad certainly fit the bill. Lovely. lush and perfect.

I die-cut the bird-cage using my Silhouette SD. Using the Print & Cut feature, I was able to add this wonderful patterned text right onto the cage. I wanted something to add a little contrast between the image and the patterned paper but didn’t want to cover up all that gorgeous design so this cage was perfect. I picture this little Fairy using this cage as a safe and happy little home somewhere nestled in the forest :)

I tied three charms to the top of the die-cut bird cage: Love Charm, Heart 2 Charm, and a star charm. The Prima fairy-tale rose was covered in glitter for a little sparkle and the wings were covered in Stardust Stickles. Stamp & Create EF side copy

The sentiment is from Technique Tuesday’s Ali Edwards collection. I {heart} her sentiment sets and am slowly building up my collection of them. I have started back at scrapbooking and I love how they add so much to your pages! I stamped this sentiment onto the bottom of the card, first with some metallic ink which is very faint but I think you can just make it out, and then with some VersaMark and white embossing powder. As you can see, the second time, I just stamped a portion of the sentiment. It is something I say to my kids a lot…..and it is something I very luckily hear from them. I guess it is just one of those phrases that becomes uniquely your own family’s.

Hope you enjoyed seeing this sweet little fairy card but before I go I want to let you know about Lacey’s  weekly Stamp & Create blog candy. You can read all about it and how to enter over at the Stamp & Create Blog! (My post may go live a little earlier that the blog’s so just check back later on the blog if you don’t see it)

As well, I do have a video showing how I create these center-stair-step cards. I can be viewed over at my YouTube channel ~here~.

Have a great day!

One of the prettiest cards I've ever seen, Jeanette. I love your use of the birdcage on this card with the faries. It's a whole story on a card. Great job!
