Fairy good friends

We have been reviewing some of our older fairy stamps over at Lili of the Valley recently so the design team decided to have a fun hop using the very sweet Fairy Friends stamp.  Here is my take on it...



This is such an adorable stamp!  I matched them up with papers from the Promises pad and also die cut the flourishes and punched the flowers out using the new Promises Solids paper pad.  It's so nice having everything coordinated rather searching through my piles of cardstock to match up the colours!  I also added lots of Stickles Star Dust glitter glue to the fairies so they really pop off the card - here's a closer look...



Okay, so back to the hop - there are prizes to be won!  Just join the hop and leave some love along the way.  The winners will be announced on Monday morning over at the Ideas to Inspire blog.

2 lucky random winners will each be able to choose 2 of the small fairy stamps as their prize!

You should have got here from Lou and you now need to hop off to Mindy.  If you want to start from the beginning, go to the Ideas to Inspire blog here where you'll also find all the deets.

Well I'm off now but I'll be back on Friday with my Guest Designer card for La-La Land Crafts - ttfn!

So gorgeous! Gorgeous colours and everything's so perfectly co-ordinated with the paper. And I personally believe that there is a law somewhere that says fairies MUST have stardust stickles on them... I knoiw I for one am incapable of not adding them! lol. x

maria preston said...

Wow, my favorite pad and my favourite colours, now I really have to get the solids pad when I see what you have done with it re the flowers. Only problem is that I have practically finished it as I have used it so so much of late. Think I will have to get a new patterned pad too.... and a fairy stamp....and your lovely flower punches.. oh dear the list goes on. Think I have a LOTV addiction. Your card is so beautiful Best wishes for Easter.
