Magical Fairies Time!

 Hello again!

I'm so excited about the stamps I'm sharing with you today!  I've been waiting for the first set for quite a while! Audra at Kindred Stamps, put together, THE most adorable fairies for her "Magical Fairies" set! Check the card I made out!!

I used Copic markers, and their glitter pens to color up my pretty little fairies and the cute house and cut them out with my Brother Scan 'n Cut (it did trim a few of their wing pieces off unfortunately!)

For my background, I used a Fiskars Embossing board, (like old school hand embossing, that was exhausting!) with flowers in it. I then sponged 4 fun Stampin' Up colors (I'm so awful at remembering the color names but if you love any of them, let me know, I'm happy to go back and look!) on the flowers and backgrounds.

I wanted it to be an inspirational card, for someone who had just completed a program, and had well wishers for her life after it! The "Spread your wings and fly" sentiment was perfect for just that, I matched the middle layer of CS to give it a good base and tie it all together.

Magical Fairies is being released on Friday, September 8th, at Kindred Stamps, you can join us for the release party and see all the other cute things coming up at the Kindred Stamps Fan Club FB Group!



O.M.G... are you an '80s baby too? Someone who loves a certain trilogy about a young man who travels time in a DeLorian? Someone who thinks Michael J. Fox rocks? Well, thennnn you may wanna make sure you're ready to squeal!

The "Back in Time" set from Kindred Stamps was recently released and OMG.......... I LOVE IT! Giving input for this set was SO fun... this is one of my husband's favorite movies, Back to The Future has been watched SO many times in our house! Again, I've been looking for good inspirational sentiments, and this may have been one of my favorite "finds," it really is perfect!


I colored up good old, Doc Brown and the DeLorian with Copics, I'm not amazing at hair, but I won't lie, I'm pretty pleased with his! The car, pulled out all 6 greys I own and just started darkest to lightest. It was super fun!

The background, I grabbed a pretty indigo blue and used some of my first washi ever, which is a geometric teal to create something slightly retro, yet slightly futuristic feeling. I added a middle layer of white card stock but covered the edges with some retired SU silver striped washi tape. (See, I'm not a hoarder, I will find a use for it all eventually!!!)
