Poppy Stamps - Autumn Fairies. "I Be-Leaf In You" shaker card.

Hello and welcome. Today's card that I'm sharing is a new stamp set that I've come across called Autumn Fairies from Poppy Stamps. I'm on a magical/fairly realm theme lately and this set is so delighful and a lot of fun to play with. 

What luck! It's so fortuitous that Poppystamps happen to have a Faerie Kingdom challenge that I've entered this card in. The faeries are truly lucky hehe. You can click on the Poppy Challenge badge below to enter and if you love fairies and have some fairy inspired Poppystamps, why not join in the fun?   

Although the set is centred  around Autumn and even Halloween, it can be designed to any season you desire just by customising the colour scheme as I have done. I went with a bright and summery, spring feel as this is an encouragement using the fun play on words sentiment. It's just so cute! 

Creating a shaker card was a fun way to add an interactive element and to display the cute acorn fairy house by neatly tucking it behind the die cut circle panel window with the leaves jutting out from the branched adding further depth to the scene. Inside the shaker I've added a mix of sparkly confetti sequins, beads and a few sequins randomly adhered to accentuate the background without them all just falling down. 

The panel has been embossed with a retired Woodland textured embossing folder by Stampin' Up! that still comes in handy especially for this theme and scene. It just adds that extra something to the otherwise plain white panel. 

Copic markers have been used for quick and simple colouring and all the images have been stamped with Memento Tuxedo black ink.  The background and sentiment has been ink blended with Ranger distress inks in Cracked Pistachio and Mustard Seed and lightly spritz water over the top for added texture. Just love applying this technique with these awesome inks. 

The sentiment has been white heat embossed for an embossed resist on the panel strip. I've added some falling leaves to further emphasise the sentiment which are tucked underneath the sentiment panel and the rest mounted with foam dimensionals. The fairies at the bottom have also been mounted on with foam dimensionals for added depth.

For the finishing touches, I've applied Clear Wink of Stella on the fairy wings which is hard to photograph and added clear glossy accents on the fairy windows to make them pop. I hope you have enjoyed and found inspiration. This set is a lot of fun to play with and the imagination can run wild with this magical theme. Thank you so much for stopping by, til' next time - Happy Crafting! :)
