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!

Hello Handsome Scrapbook Layout

Hello everyone! Welcome back to the Little Birdie blog, Melissa here with you today. I have a new male scrapbook layout to share with you and we all know how tricky the male layouts can be, so I hope you like this one.

For this layout I have used Little Birdie’s ‘The Classic Gentleman’ collection. I ripped the cog image card stock in pieces, used brown ink for the edges and used mounting tape to attach it onto the main cardstock.

I fussy cut the images and arranged them around my photo.

I ripped some corrugated cardboard and tucked it under the dimensional cardstock piece.

I coloured the cog chipboard with some ‘Wild Wasabi’ arcylic chalk paint and attached the pieces slightly tucked under the side openings.

To finish off the layout I sprinkled some bling randomly.

I hope you liked my latest layout and I hope you found some inspiration through this one.

I will be back with some more crafty inspiration for you soon. Until then..happy crafting! 🙂

Slimline Cards

Hi Friends, Anushree here!

Have you always wondered that stamping is necessary to make cards. I would tell you ‘NO’ and will show you today how to create lovely Slimline cards by just using dies, pattern paper along with gorgeous handmade flowers from Little Birdie Crafts.

Did you like these?? I totally enjoyed making both the cards.

Here’s how I made them:

  1. I cut a 8.5*3.5 inches base card in coloured cardstock.
  2. Next, I adhered a die cut rectangular piece from the ‘Watercolor Floral Ballet’ pattern paper.
  3. I die cut an oval in white cardstock and adhered it using double sided tape to give volume to my card.
  4. I adhered some gorgeous handmade flowers from Little Birdie collection to the card as shown.
  5. I have fussy cut the sentiment from the same pattern paper. Do you know there is one complete 12*12 sheet just with sentiments in this pattern paper set.

Here’s the major materials used for these cards

Hope you enjoyed slimline cards today, See you soon with more crafting fun.

Thanks for stopping by. Hugs, Anushree
