Fairy Celebration for Kylie's International Blog Highlight

Hi Crafters!

Thanks for coming to the International Blog Highlight today, hosted by the lovely Kylie Bertucci. You are currently visiting Jessie Holton's blog (Australia).

The top ten winners of this Blog Hop will get to be part of a special international blog hop so please vote for my project as I would love to be able to participate in it! Our theme for this highlight is encouragement as we all need a kind word said to us to build us up.

I just love this Fairy Celebration stamp set from Stampin' Up! The images & sentiments are really lovely! I made a bunch of these a while back & my mother in law gave them to her friends. I wasn't sure if they'd be too childish to give as adult birthday cards, but her friends loved them & she wants some more, so here's what I've come up with...

I have picked the "all it takes is love, trust & a little bit of fairy dust" sentiment to go on the front of the cards. I love this sentiment! Isn't it lovely? It could be used in so many different ways, but today I've paired it with the happy birthday sentiment on the inside. You can see a pic of the inside of my cards further down the page.

I thought this time, I would stick to Real Red & just add details for a pop of colour. I got the colour inspiration from the gorgeous Real Red Stitched Edge ribbon that I had left over from the Holiday Catalog & then I spotted the Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack from the new Occasions Catalog (Sign up for your Free Copy of the New Occasions Catalog here!) & hey presto, here are the cards!

For the above card, I have also used the Jar of Love stamp set (mason jar & lid) to capture the fairy. 

I have stamped all the images & sentiments in Archival Black ink on Watercolour Cardstock. I was going to watercolour them, but I ended up using my Real Red Stampin' Write Marker instead. I have stamped the fairy dust in Smoky Slate. I have used Dimensionals to attach it to the card base.

I have used a Real Red cardstock base with a layer of the Sending Love DSP Stack & I have stapled the ribbon to the DSP before adhering it to the card base with Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I have matched the inside with a little Pink Pirouette fairy in the corner, the sentiments 'happy birthday' & 'may your wish come true' in Real Red & the fairy dust in Smoky Slate.

Thank  you for visiting my blog today! Make sure you head over to Kylie's blog to vote for my project. I would love to be chosen to participate in the special international blog hop!
