Hello! It’s Kari from Sunshine In My Pocket.com and I’m so excited to be a guest on the Scrapping For Less blog! Today I have some cards made with the Prancing Pegasus stamp set and beautiful Fairy’s Garden paper pad.
For my first card, I inked up the background with some Distress Oxides in Picked Raspberry and Dried Marigold. Then I splattered on some white pearl watercolor to give it more of a magical feel.
I stamped some of the stars from the same stamp set on the background using the same colors of Distress Oxide inks. They are a little difficult to see in the photos, but it adds a subtle detail.
I colored up the Pegasus with Copic markers and added some sparkly stickles to the wing. I die cut some clouds from my stash and added WOW! Sparkle glitter to the smaller ones.
That frame is from the diagonal paper in the paper pack and it adds just the right touch! I simply used 2 nesting rectangle dies to cut out that frame. I stamped the sentiment on strips of teal paper and popped it up with foam tape. This is for sure a “magical” birthday card that is fit for a princess!
For my second card I knew I wanted that Pegasus to be running on top of a rainbow. So I glittered up a rainbow and added it to a pink polka dot background from the Fairy’s Garden paper.
I colored the Pegasus’ mane, tail, and wing in the same rainbow colors with Copic markers. Those butterflies and leaves are cut from the paper pad as well! I was so excited to see those butterflies in there and they were so perfect for this rainbow card!
I added some clouds to the card and stamped the sentiment “For My Princess” with pink ink.
I added the Pegasus with foam tape to give it more dimension. I also folded up the butterfly wings just a little to so they look like they are flying!
I hope you enjoyed these projects today! I really loved making them. I’ll see you real soon with some more inspiration.
