It’sJessand I’m back with a second project featuring the adorable stand along release from Scrapping for Less. I love today’s project – maybe even more than my first one! Let’s get started.
I grabbed a few Distress Oxide ink pads and started on my blending. I like to start with my lightest color and blend over the entire area first. Then I go in with my next darker color and blend just slightly less area than with the first color. I keep doing this as I move to each darker color and the end result is a really cool gradient effect with the colors.
After my ink blending was done, I grabbed a sparkle pen from Spectrum Noir and tapped the barrel to get some of that gorgeous clear sparkle to plop right onto my panel. Since the Distress Oxides react with water, I got a really cool effect with this technique.
I set my panel aside to dry and moved on to coloring. I chose to use alcohol markers here (the Spectrum Noir Classique line), but you can use whatever method you’re most comfortable with. Once your coloring is done, you’re ready for a sentiment.
I decided to do some ‘stamp surgery’ as I’ve heard it called. I wanted a more long and narrow sentiment rather than a stacked one, so I cut apart the two lines of text ‘fairy blessings’ and ‘coming your way!’ Then, I used my Mini MISTI to line them up in a straight line across and stamp them onto black cardstock with Embossing Ink. I poured on some white embossing powder, tapped off the excess, and melted the powder with my heat tool.
I adhered my sentiment across the top section of my card and then mounted the card panel on a white A2 sized card base. I’m absolutely in love with how this one turned out. Be sure to let me know what you think about it by leaving a comment!
Hello, it’s Stacy from Craftaholicmomma up today on the Scrapping for Less blog with a wood slice ornament featuring stamps from the new exclusive Winter Fairy Collection.
I recently ordered more wood slices from Amazon. This time I purchased them a little bit bigger than the ones I used for my Christmas ornaments. Those were 2.75″-3″ in size, the ones I just got are 3.75″-4″.
I stamped the fairy and trees from the Winter Fairies stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I then colored the images with my Ohuhu alcohol markers. You could use any alcohol marker or colored pencil to color these in.
I used Nuvo Glitter Accents in Fresh Snowfall to put some dimension on her hat and ground. Nuvo Crystal Glaze added the perfect shine to the star wand. And lastly I added Nuvo Clear Glitter Glaze marker to her wings.
Next I felt she needed a decorative box to put her in. So I took two sheets of the Winter in Pink 6×6 paper and made a box.
For the bottom I scored the sheet at 1″ on all for sides, snipped the corners and taped the edges together with score tape. For the top I cut down the sheet to 5″ square and scored on all four sides at 1/2″ and assembled it the same way. I decorated the top with a triangle scrap I had left over from my Banner I did last week and a white paper doily from Doodlebug. Tying a sheer white ribbon around the box completed my project.
Hi everyone! I’m Beth from Bourbon Creek Crafts and I’m super excited to be a guest designer this month for SFL! Today I’m sharing a different way to use the Winter Fairies stamp set and Winter in Pink paper pack. I needed some thank you gifts for a birthday party my daughter ishavingand this bundle was perfect!
I made a decorated post itnotepad holder using one of the fairies and sentiments from the Winter Fairies stamp set.I also have a process video on my YouTube channel, Bourbon Creek Crafts. I colored the fairy with a variety of Prismacolor colored pencils and then accented her hat withNuvoGlitter Drops in White Diamond and glittered up her wings(and the star on the wand)with clear Wink of Stella. Because every good fairy should have some sparkle!
To make the post it note holder, I used a 3 1/4 x 7 inch piece of heavy duty white cardstock. I scored the cardstock piece at 3 1/4 inches from both ends. Then I used 2 different papers from the Winter in Pink 6×6 paper pack to decorate the cardstock. I cut the patterned paper to 3 1/8 inches square, so there was just a small border of the white cardstock base showing and adhered it to the post it note holder base.
I stamped the “a warm fairy hello” onto white cardstock and cut it down to ¾ inch by 1 3/8 inches. I also cut one end of that piece into a fish-tail banner. I fussy cut the fairy and adhered the fairy and the sentiment to the front of the post it note holder. Then I finished it off with some sequins from past SFL Flavor of the Month kits.
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed my project! I look forward to joining you all again later this month!
Hi Everyone! Luci here with a single layer card using the Brand New Release from SFL “Winter Fairies” and “Fairy House“! How adorable are these sets! I colored the images and created the scene with Copic Markers, and I finished up the card by stamping the sentiment with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink added a few sequins and you can’t have Fairies without some Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen!
I made an A2 size card or 5 1/2 X 4 1/4 inches, I cut a panel to 5 1/4 X 4 inches for the scene. I made some masks for the images, I stamped and masked as I went, using Momento Tuxedo Black Ink for stamping the images I was going to color. I drew in some hills with a pencil before I started coloring. I colored the panel. Once I finished coloring I adhered the panel to the card base, added a few sequins and used the Sparkle Pen on tops of hills, the roof, the white parts of her hat, and the accents on her dress and shoes.
Hello, it’s Stacy here from Craftaholicmomma today on the Scrapping for Less blog with a paper craft project featuring all three products from the brand new SFL release, Winter Fairy.
My daughter’s birthday is coming up at the end of January so I wanted to make her something she could use at her party and then afterwards hang in her room.
This banner was very simple. I did not use any dies, just minimal supplies.
First I stamped and colored all of the main images from the two stamp sets, Winter Fairies and Fairy House. I’ve heard lots of good things about the Ohuhu Alcohol Markers from Amazon so I wanted to give them a try. I love my Copics but sometimes I want a bullet nib. So I purchased the 200 pack bullet nib markers at a very reasonable price (50 cents a marker). I was very pleased with them. They were all very juicy.
I listed the colors I used for each image.
I used my Brother Scan n Cut to cut out my images including the snowflakes.
Next I picked out 6 sheets of the new SFL Winter in Pink 6×6 paper pack. I trimmed these to 5 1/4″ square. Next I measured the bottom edge halfway (2 5/8″) and made a mark.
Next I connected the two upper corners with my mark, drew a line and then cut on the two lines to form my banner piece.
I wanted to mat the paper on white card stock. So the card stock is cut a little bit bigger at 5 1/2″ square. I repeated the same process marking my edge at 2 3/4″.
Next I took a hand held hole punch and punched two holes in the upper corners of all 6 pieces. This is where I will later string my ribbon through.
Next I popped up my images on adhesive foam tape and centered them on the banners.
I finished decorating them with the snowflakes and adhesive bling. I ran pink ribbon to connect them and Viola! I made a seriously adorably cute banner in less than one hour!
Thanks for visiting and enjoy all of the beautiful projects the design team creates this month with this brand new Winter Fairy release.
Hello and Season’s Greetings to you all! I hope you are having a good December and are busy making memories with friends and loved ones. Today I want to share with you a little card with a grande message. ( I know, I know but I love punny.)Grande-Sized Love from My Favorite Things clear stamp.
This pure innocence girl from MFTis incredibly versatile. You could use it for a thank you card, birthday card, I love you card and of course she would be adorable on a card containing a gift card especially if that gift card was for a place that served coffee. I kept things pretty simple wanting her to take center stage on the card. Here is the run down of what I did and what I used to do it:
This card is bright and cheery and a perfect thank you for me to give to a fellow coffee lover who really is always there to pick me up. I really do love the pure innocence collection from My Favorite Things and am so excited to add this little gal to my collection. Thank you for spending some time with me today on the blog and hope you are carving out a little time for yourself to do something crafty.
Hello, Happy December! It’s Stacy from Craftaholicmomma up on the Scrapping for Less blog today. The theme for this month is Hodgepodge Potpourri. Which means we will be showcasing all kinds of different products and companies this month.
I colored the image with alcohol markers and fussy cut her out. I took a piece of the paper that had a bunch of flowers on it and cut out all the flowers on my Brother Scan n Cut to use as embellishments. A scrap piece of Doodlebug Designs Sprinkles Vellum added just the right touch. I just love that vellum! I hoard it because they don’t make it anymore so I only use it on just the right project.
I hope you’ll love all the projects and goodies the design team will be showcasing this month. Thanks for visiting,

Happy Holidays Crafty Friends! It’s Stacy here from Craftaholicmomma up today on the Scrapping for Less blog with a cute set of tags with a matching card, perfect for that gift for a dear friend or loved one.
Today I am featuring stamps by My Favorite Things. And the best news is they are on sale right now!! So hurry and grab yours!
I used the Santa and Friends stamp set. I stamped all three images in Lawn Fawn Jet Black Ink. I then colored them in with my Copic Markers (exact colors are listed below). I then used my Brother Scan n Cut to cut out the images with a small white border.
I used scraps of pattern paper from my stash and layered everything up with a strip a vellum. I foam mounted the Santa and Reindeer, so that I could hide my liquid glue behind the image and sentiment strip to attach the vellum to the card. **Right now pattern paper is on sale also! Check out the store!
I made two matching tags with the remaining two reindeer images. Adding Cranberry Stickles to their noses finished them off perfectly.
