Have a Fairy Happy Birthday! (posted by Judith)

Hi Folks, here's a project for you using stamps from the new Spring Fairy Collection stamp set combined with some older favourites. I wanted to create a gift set that comprised of a card, gift tag and matching wrapping paper, using soft pastel tones. I picked five shades of Memento Ink, and created a background on my tag, and a large piece of white card. I stamped the fairies and butterflies using Versafine Onyx Black Ink. The extra fairies and buterflies are from the Winter Fairy and Autumn Fairy stamp sets.

For the tag, I added a sprinkling of glitter on the butterfly wings and the trail of stars. The sentiment comes from the Fairyland Words clear stamp set. For the card, I added some clouds from the Magical Landscapes/Fantasy Castles Multibuy stamp set and a flower from the Decadent Brocade stamp set, which has been decoupaged. I have added some die cut leaves, and a sentiment as before.The wrapping paper was created using the same stamps as the tag, stamped with each of the ink colours, graduating across the paper.

Thanks for stopping by, Judith xx

  3. This is really a wonderful, Fairytail set, I love it very much, and how orignial that beautiful paper!!!


  4. beautiful judith - really gorgeous colours xx

  5. This is a lovely as a matching set. The colours are so soft and pretty, and I like the way the basic idea has been followed through all three. The added flower from the Decadent Brocade with the dark leaves just finishes off the card nicely, and the random fairy design on the wrapping paper using the same colour tones is sufficient to give a good interesting design.

  6. Absolutely gorgeous! Really makes me think of spring and the lovely colour scheme is stunning! TFS x

  7. The way you have matched these so they are obviously part of a set yet made them individually different is delightful - the white mat of the card base looks quite different to the inked edges of the tag. The blending is beautifully smooth & the use of the Brocade Flower is with the blakc die-cut leaves is a lovely touch. The softness of your clouds adds lovely interest to the sky of the card. I still can't get over how different the tag & card scenes are.

  9. Such pretty delicate shading Judith and as Paula said such smooth blending. I love the idea of a matching set and the wrapping paper is such a great idea too. The addition of the flower and the black leaves gives a lovely contrast to the softer colours. Elaine xxx
