I started this card by blending distress ink through one of the latest release stencils: The Forest . I then stamped the faerie from Faerie Magic over the top.

I re-stamped the image on another piece of card , coloured and cut out.

The wings were stamped and heat embossed on Vellum and adhered to the back.

I used Nuvo drops on some of the bubbles for added dimension, and mounted the fairy on the card with  3D glue gel.

To finish I added a sentiment from the Own It set and some white ink dot to add a snowy effect. Yes I know it’s still summer, but us card makers like to get ahead sometimes don’t we!

A Little Bit of Faerie Magic | Fairy Stamp

Good Morning! Lisa Taggart is bringing some magic to the blog today with a stunning project featuring our gorgeous fairy stamp..

Hello my friends, today I have some Faerie Magic for you Visible Image style! And what a versatile and magical set it is!

There are so many gorgeous elements to this fairy stamp set, I felt it could totally be used as a stand alone set.

To create the background no magical scene would be complete without a bit of sparkle. I combined some spectrum noir sparkle ink with an aqua and white mica spray on to white stamping card.

I stamped the fairy stamp and some of the elements on top of the background. Then on to a similarly inked piece of scrap I stamped the faerie, wings and circles for cutting and layering on top.

Once the elements were cut out and paper pieced on top I added the colouring finishing touches using watercolour and paint pens. I used a white gel pen to create highlights and a little watered down white gesso around the circle orbs to create the impression of light. Using the craft knife I inserted a couple of slots either side of the main image to glue in the wings and then stamped the sentiment.

The art work was mounted and a few glitter highlights added.

The close ups:

I hope you like it!

Celestial Fairie – Handmade Card

Hi there! We are really excited to share some magical inspiration today! Sharon is loving our gorgeous new ‘Faerie Magic’ stamp set and has created a fabulous fairy card…

Today is all about Faeries!

First up, a fairy with moving wings (this was such fun to make!).

fairy card - handmade - faerie stamp

I actually have two posts for you …this one is my ‘night’ fairy with moving wings, and tomorrow I will share my rainbow ‘day’ fairy.

I managed to get my hands on some of the new Visible Image stamps that are on pre-order at the moment, to be released on June 22nd, and this beautiful fairy is one of those stamps.

I thought it’d be a good idea to show the wing movement in a short video, so here it is:


Do you want to know how to make this?

Well here are the instructions:

Use a stamping platform to stamp the fairy image onto a watercolour panel and leave the stamp in the platform whilst you add colour to the background. Wet the watercolour paper and use distress stains to make the background, concentrating the darker colour towards the outer edges. As you dry the stains mop up any spare drops from the craft mat and also spritz with water to get some water droplet interest.

When the panel is dry, use the stencil with chipped sapphire ink to add more interest on the outer edges of the water colour panel. Dry the panel completely. Now re-stamp the fairy image on the panel in versamark ink and heat emboss with some gold embossing glitter.

Stamp the stars in versamark ink and heat emboss them in both white and silver embossing powders and stamp some circles in faded jeans distress ink onto the background.

Now add the circles behind the faeries’ hand. Emboss that with midas touch embossing glitter and then colour with a zig fluorescent pen and add a few highlights with a white pen. Go over the zig colouring with an embossing pen and add clear sparkle embossing glitter.

To finish the background panel, swipe versamark ink along the edges, add gold embossing glitter and rough up the edges with your finger before heat embossing. Heat emboss the sentiment in gold embossing glitter and when cooled highlight with a white pen. Colour the small circles around the faerie with a white pen.

Heat emboss the fairy in gold embossing glitter and the wings in silver on white card and fussy cut them out.

Make the mechanism for the moving wings with a small piece of doflex, some white card and 3 small brads.

Attach the wings to the doflex with one brad in the centre, then attach the 2 wings to the background (using the faerie image as a guide) with the other 2 brads. Don’t over tighten the brads or the wings will be too stiff to move. Attach the white card to the bottom of the doflex and write the word pull at the very bottom.

Attach the background with the wing mechanism to some gold card on a card blank. Attach the faerie over the top of the wing mechanism with 2 layers of shaker foam tape, making sure none of the tape will get in the way of the wing movement.

On the inside stamp the sentiment and a few of the stars with gold ink (you can see the inside in the video above).
