I’m so excited to share this adorable, bright fairy thank you card with you today. I recently placed a fun order with Scrapbookpal.com, including some things I wouldn’t typically choose. I love this site and they have recently added some new, big names to the companies they carry including Concord and 9th, The Stamp Market and Gina K Designs to name a few.
In this order I was sure to add this amazing Concord and 9th Big Thanks die as soon as I saw it. I immediately had so many ideas for it and couldn’t wait for it to arrive so I could start playing. Today’s card showcases this die with Lawn Fawn Fairy Friends stamps and coordinating dies.
I started by blending distress inks on smooth white cardstock and then spritzing them with water for that great oxidized look. The colors used here are, from the top down, twisted citron, cracked pistachio, mermaid lagoon and blueprint sketch.
Then I laid out my card before stamping the images, just to make sure I knew everything was going to fit okay on the card front.
I also want to mention that this is my first time using Lawn Fawn’s Jet Black ink pad which is copic friendly. I was excited since I haven’t been happy with the other stamp pad I’ve been using for copics. I’m elated to report that it worked amazing and I’m instantly in love!
When I colored the fairies, I planned their outfit colors to match the area of the distress ink they were in the most.
After I colored and die cut the fairies, I also die cut the big thanks die four times from white cardstock and stacked them together for some fun dimension. I attached the die cut word first with liquid glue and then added foam to the back of the fairies.
I used my Wink of Stella clear glitter brush to add shimmer to the fairies’ wings and the entire thanks die cut. Then I added these great bubbles from Honey Bee Stamps around the card and finished off the front with some white gel pen accents.
The very last thing I did was stamp the sentiment “Thank you fairy much!” on the inside with Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Up ink.
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
