Have you read the latest issue of Scraps of Color? Well, I surely hope so, but if you have not just click the icon on the sidebar and it will take you right the e-zine! There was so much information and inspiration in this issue that it's hard for me to focus on just one thing for this post! So, I made a birthday card that incorporates a couple of the topics from the issue.
I had the pleasure of working with Crafter's Companion's Fairyopolis stamps for this issue. The images are super cute and produce very clean images. The stamps are so versatile and the design team used them in so many projects which are featured on pages 16-18. Please, go and take a look at all of the projects! I really enjoyed working with the stamps and thought they would be perfect for creating a birthday card for my little cousin who's going to be 5 next week. For this card I stamped the image with Versamark on kraft paper for an instant 'fairy of color' and embossed it with bright purple. In this issue there is also an article on stitching, so I added some hand stitching to bottom of the card and a little faux stitching around the sticker, too. Please go check out all of the fab projects on pages 22-25 that the ladies created with stitching.
The fairy that I used on this stamp is one of my favorites from the collection because her hand is uplifted and it is so easy to add 3-D elements for her to hold. For the banner that she is holding I just cut a scrap piece of paper, misted it with water, and rolled it into a little pole to hold the hand cut banner. Bending the banner and embossing the sentiment also add texture to a very simple yet sweet card.
