Flying Fairy – DIY Card

Hello Crafty Friends!


I have a whimsical fairy card for you today showcasing the adorable ‘Fairy Sparkle’ cardstock pack from Little Birdie Crafts.

I started with a piece of watercolor paper and added some subtle wash colours to the background.  I knew I wanted to use this particular fairy from the cardstock pack and also the lovely ‘Stitched Tag’ dies from Little Birdie Crafts.  I started pulling shades and tones from the main image to get my design to be more cohesive.

I then added a few feathers using the Little Birdie stencil and the reddish-toned watercolor paint from the Little Birdie Watercolor Pan set.  I liked the idea of the feathers because I knew my sentiment was going to talk about flying.  I used a light and dark version of the feathers to hopefully add some dimension and depth to the background.

My sentiment comes from the stamp set called ‘Butterfly Kisses’ that I think is very versatile. It also fit perfectly on my tag!  Underneath my tag, I added a small strip of the butterfly paper found in the Fairy Sparkle cardstock pack.  I added just a hint of Silver Glitz – Metallic Wax to the edges so it wouldn’t show the stark white edges.

To give my card some additional dimension, I hand trimmed a tiny butterfly from the same type of paper and went around the edges ever so lightly with a grey Copic marker to hide the white edge.  I then placed it with the wings folded up, right under the toes of our sweet fairy.  I love how this makes the sentiment come to life!

I really didn’t want to have a sharp and plain type of card so I added some brick lines to the card base using ink and an embossing folder.  I also grunged up the green layer with some watercolor paint and more silver wax.  I roughened the edges when they were still wet to give them a torn appearance.  On the watercolor piece, I decided that some curled corners would look really cool so I used my wet brush and added that for texture as well.

A little bit of sparkle from the ‘Bling Fiesta’ – Silver pack.  Some super fine glitter on the base of her wings, a few stars and glitter dust plus some of the mirrored sequins to draw your eye toward the middle.  I love how this turned out and I really enjoy working with this cardstock pack!  Such a pretty set!

Hi, Little Birdie Crafts Friends! How are you today?

I have been enjoying using my new ring bound planner since my last project and so I tried to do a little steampunk themed spread next.

I love working with different mediums to create my spreads. So I was really happy to have everything I need to use in just one store! Little Birdie was able to let me shop so conveniently!

I used a mix of gold, bronze, yellow, white and peach for my design here and I used a black card stock as my base to channel more of that steampunk look.

My planner is an A6 size one so I only used a single chipboard piece from Little Birdie Crafts that I cut-up portions of and strategically placed around my pages.

Then I simply added in flowers and some pearls to decorate. I like my planners and journals chunky so most of my projects have bulk and dimension to the designs.
