Hello papercrafters! Here's another card using the wonderful Fairy Kisses set from Hero Arts along with a few extra sets to create and compliment the scene.

Hero Arts Garden fancy die used for window frame and Star Light Star Bright Bold Prints stamp inside card.

Images stamped with Hero Art intense black ink and coloured with Copic markers. Coordinating Fairy Kisses frame cuts used to die cut images. 

Inside the card, Star Light Star Bright bold prints have been stamped using Orchid, Passion Flower and Soft Pool Hero Arts inks in an ombre effect. Sentiments have been stamped with Versamark ink and white heat embossed. 

The die cut window frame opening is a great way to incorporate the inside and lead the eye in.

Bizzy Becs June Challenge - Fairy Kisses


Hello papercrafters! Today I'm sharing a card created for Bizzy Bec's June challenge. The theme is Anything Goes and the winner of the challenge will receive 5 digital stamps of their choice. Click here to enter.

I couldn't wait to have a play with this new stamp set that I ordered through Bizzy Bec's online store. It's the Hero Arts Fairy Kisses stamp & die combo. Fairy themed sets are a personal favourite and just love the artwork and imagery in this set.

I have a kept a pretty clean and simple design making the swirl of rainbow colours be the focal point to highlight the cute sentiment, 'all you need is love and a littely pixie dust'.  

I first die cut out the window frame using the Hero Arts Milky Way window fancy die using Neenah white solar 80lbs cardstock. 
I then ink blended the background using several Ranger distress inks with a mini round ink blending tool. I have used Strathmore Bristol smooth paper as it gives a smooth effortless blending and can hold water droplet effects which adds a subtle texture to the background.

I then stamped the images with Hero Arts intense black ink on Neehan solar white 80lbs cardstock, and coloured them in with copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to die cut out the images. To make the sentiment fit I placed the die cut Milky Way window horizontally and works well with this layout. The fairy and flowers have been arranged to compliment the space. 

The sentiment as well as the pixie dust has been stamped with Versamark and then white heat embossed ensuring that it lines up the fairy.

Both the Milky Way window and fairy image has been mounted up with foam/foam dimensionals to make them pop. 

I hope you have been inspired and can't wait to see what you create for Bizzy Bec's June challenge.

The Fairy Kisses stamp & die combo set is available to preorder through Bizzy Bec's online store as well as Ranger distress inks.

Thank you so much for stopping by, 'til next time - Happy Crafting! :)

Waffle Flower - Party Time!

Hello papercrafters!  Today I'm sharing a fun pop up card from Waffle Flower, Limo Ride and the 3D Pop Up card die from Mama Elephant for extra fun! The critters in this set are so cute and just love the vintage retro car they're in fully decorated with party celebrations.

The images have been stamped with Hero Arts intense black ink and copic coloured. Coordinating dies have been used to cut them out and having them pop up in the card in a box just brings the scene to life. 

Pool Party cardstock from Stampin' Up! has been used for 3D pop up card and wanted to use a similar colour to match the car as well as keep that pastel colour scheme. The green inserts have been coloured with Ranger distress ink Mowed lawn with a round sponge blending tool. A picket fence has been added at the back and coloured with Ranger distress ink Rusty Hinge. The cloudy background has been ink blended with Ranger distress ink Broken China using the MFT cloud stencil.  

It was a lot of fun creating and colouring in this card and makes a fun and unique birthday card to give to someone special. Thanks so much for stopping by, 'til next time - Happy Crafting! :)

Color Layering Betta Fish - Pop-Up Shadow Box card

Hello papercrafters! Today I'm sharing a fun pop-up shadow box card using the Color Layering Betta Fish set along with Goldfish in a Bowl die from Hero Arts. 

The inspiration for this card is from Jennifer McGuire's pop-up shadow box card using the same sets. Love how she has engineered the card and looks awesome displayed. I have altered it to have the folds inverted rather than have them showing at the sides. 

The set is so much fun and the colouring options are endless. I have followed Jennifer McGuire's colouring technique of using a dauber to apply the separate colours on the Betta fish.
Hero Arts inks used: Summer Sky, Deep Ocean, Orchid, Bubble Gum and Rose Madder.
The images have been stamped with Hero Arts Intense Black ink.

The water plants have been coloured in with Copic markers

Ranger distress oxide ink - Peacock Feathers used for the background. Added water droplets for soft water bubbles textures. I have masked off the top part the bowl to contain the ink blending and have a water line.

The sentiment as well as the air bubbles has been white heat embossed and love the pun. 

I have also added an action wobbler on the back of the betta fish as per Jennifer McGuire's example. It's hard to see on the photo but so much fun to flick and watch it shake in person.


Just so pleased how the card turned out and all folds flat for easy posting. This card will be sent as a thank you card. The card has been created for this month's Bizzy Bec's Challenge. I hope you join us for this month's challenge. The Color Layering Betta Fish set is available to pre-order from Bizzy Bec's Store.
