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.
How adorable is this sleepy fairy?!?! Today I made an interactive card using items from the SFL Release. The fairy is on an action wobbler!
This card was so much fun to make and I think this fairy is super sweet. I stamped out 2 images from the Winter Fairies stamp set and colored them in with Copic markers. I trimmed down 2 pieces of pattern paper from the Winter in Pink paper pad and used a stitched scallop basic edge die on the star paper. I then stamped the sentiment from the Fairy House stamp set and used a little Spun Sugar distress ink along the edge.

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!
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.
I first started by making my background. I stamped out the fairy image and snowflake stamp all over the rectangle card stock. I decided to color those images using the cool gray Copic Markers (C1, C3 and C5).
I also stamped the image and used a variety of Copics to color the wings, hair and skin. I also decided her dress needed some solid parts so I use Copic markers on the neck and middle of the dress. I paper pieced her dress using the pink snowflake paper from the Winter in Pink pattern paper. I adhered the pattern paper with liquid glue.
While the glue dries on my fairy, I trimmed a piece of vellum with an oval die. Basically at this point my card is ready to put together and add some finishing details. I added “White Blizzard” Nuvo drops on the rim of her hat and Enchanting Pink Glitter Nuvo drops to the left on the vellum.
On the inside, I just stamped the image with London Fog Memento Ink and added the sentiment from the stamp set “Happy Birthday”
This release is So Exciting for SFL – right now you can get all 3 items in a bundle CLICK HERE for more information.
Thank You So Much for stopping by! You can see the process video HERE on the SFL YouTube channel.
I’m Jess Francisco from A Card Day’s Work and I’m so thrilled to be guest designing for Scrapping for Less today. I’m sharing a fun scene card using the brand new January release – let’s get started!
I decided to stamp out the adorable fair image from ‘Winter Fairies‘ and the little cottage from ‘Winter Fairy House‘ on a piece of white cardstock. I used my Mini MISTI for this to make sure I got a perfect stamp. Once my stamping was done, I grabbed some full sticky back post it notes and stamped each image. I cut these out with a pair of sharp scissors to use as masks.
After I did my ink blending, I used my Distress Sprayer to add some water droplets to the inked area. I let it sit for a little bit and then dabbed up the excess water with a clean paper towel. Then, I watered down some Opaque White Gesso and splattered it on my background to give it a snowy or starry effect. I set my background aside to dry.
I used my Spectrum Noir Classique alcohol markers to color up these adorable images and then trimmed my card front down to 4×5.25. I mounted it to a white A2 sized card base and that finished off my card! I wanted to hold off on adding a sentiment so that when the time comes, I can stamp the perfect one and have my card ready to go.
I hope you love today’s card – be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you think. Thanks for stopping by and checking out my post – I can’t wait to see you guys again later this month.
