Glimmer Fairy



It's hard to get all the glimmer to show up in photos. I had so much fun with this card. Remember when Joy posted her challenge with the Glimmer Mist? I told you I was going to get mine out and play! The background is a piece of Shimmery White card stock from SU! stamped with the big Snowflake from Lizzie Anne Designs in Versamark. I then, sprayed Autumn Leaves Glimmer Mist all over and then dabbed it around with a sponge. When it dried, I stamped more snowflakes from Christmas in the City and the big snowflake with Vanilla Craft, Chocolate Chip and Copper Encore. I'm really happy how it turned out.

The Fairy is stamped with Burnt Umber Palette ink. Then, I took my Quickie Glue Pen and filled in her wings and then added Caramel Latte Tan Fun Flock. I'm loving that Fun Flock. I colored the rest of her in with Stampin'Write Markers, then added more glitter with my Sakura Glitter Pen. The words are from another set from Lizzie Anne Designs called Just Words. I used dream, hope, believe.

Have you checked out the company forums over at SCS? Lizzie Anne Designs is one of the companies who have their very own forum there. I heard that there is a free shipping code in one of those threads. :)

Here is the complete recipe:

Stamps: Just Words, Christmas in the City, Fairy, Snowflake (Lizzie Anne Designs)
Paper: Shimmery White, Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa (Stampin'Up!)
Ink: Palette Burnt Umber, Stampin'Write Markers, Vanilla Craft, Chocolate Chip, Copper Encore.
Other: Glimmer Mist, Fun Flock, Quickie Glue Pen, Sakura Glitter Pen, Word Window Punch, Crop-a-dile, Vintage Brads, Dimensionals, Sponges, Chocolate Chip Taffeta Ribbon, Janome Sew Mini, Scor-Pal.

Okay.... I have a workshop this Saturday, so I need to get busy and prepare for my hostess girls. I look forward to seeing them each month. They are so much fun. Nothing like getting together with girlfriends to stamp huh?

Have a super day everyone!!

CUTE!!!!!! Each time I visit I'm that much more tempted to get that sewing maching. I almost caved last time it was on sale but I was (somehow) able to resist. My husband and pocketbook are breathing a sigh of relief ;-)

I was looking through old posts on your blog (to which I'm new) and found this and got inspired! (my name link is the card I made.) I used an old fairy stamp I got when I was a kid, and papers primarily from the Once Upon a Time series by DCWV. Pencil crayons, some plain cardstock, a cut swirl paperclip and brown ribbon.
Thanks for all the inspiration!
