Fairy Beauty

It’s time for another Hiding in my Craft Room challenge: Use Ribbon! Easy right? Our sponsor this week is My Besties and I had the chance to use two of their gorgeous images for today’s card.

I had lots of fun coloring two images from Scrapbook Stamp Society (which is part of the same company as My Besties) called Fairy Dust 02 by Mitzi and Poppy by Mitzi. The result was lovely, since the images are so well designed.

I used the out of the box technique for the fairy image. I’ve been drawn to this technique lately. I worked with Spellbinders’ Majestic Labels Twenty Five. The images were printed on linen cardstock and colored with Spectrum Noir markers from various sets (purples, pinks, greens, pale hues and browns). I fuzzy cut the poppy image, heat embossed it with pearlescent powder and adhered it on top of the fairy image, on the right lower corner. I also applied glitter glue to the fairy’s wings.

The lilac and pink metallic cardstocks make this card look very elegant and they match the colors of the image nicely. I ran a piece of 5/8″ lilac gross grain ribbon across the pink frame and tied a bow on the right side. Finally I mounted everything on a 6 3/8″ x 4 3/8″ off white leather textured card base.


I hope you enjoyed my card for today. Don’t forget there is more inspiration for you at Hiding in my Craft Room, so make sure you check out what my teammates have created. I would love to see your “Add a Ribbon” creation this week. I invite you to join the challenge and most of all to have fun!

Thanks so much for your visit.
