Enchanted Forest Stamp Collection

Hi folks! Fairies, fairies everywhere yet outside there is a blanket of snow. I think it's funny how, as crafters, we're moving on to the wonderful colours of Spring with it's floral and fairy themes. Then once we reach the warm Summer months.... we're crafting for Christmas! Bonkers.

I love this card. I'm going to have to make it again as I sent it to Joanna Sheen as a sample to showcase my, recently launched, fairy stamp designs (Available here) I stamped the main fairy designs, coloured them, cut them out and glittered them. The main structure of the card I manipulated on my gypsy and cut on the Cricut. I lined the inside of the card with some pretty patterned paper (DCWV) and also added some acetate to the inside of the front of the card.

I adhered a fairy to the inside and another to the outside using dimensional glue gel. I piled blobs of glue gel 'here and there' on the front of the card and added some tiny punched flowers and spiraled wire. To finish off I added the large ribbon bow.

I have had so much fun creating with my own stamp designs but it has been an absolute thrill to see what the talented design team have made with them too.

I hope you like them and some find their fairy homes at yours.

Ciao for now!

Fabulous card Sandra - your new stamps are gorgeous. I love the way you've created a secret little place on this card, for the fairies to play! (I do believe in fairies - can you tell, I've never grown up)?!!
Hope you are enjoying your new venture - Love, Sylvia xxx
