Overdone Fairy Card and Time Well Spent (D2T)

(Scroll down for CC Blog Hop.)

My inspiration began with Get Well Soon by Claudia. Papers from Phresh and Phunky by BG. Scored the whole pack at a yard sale last year for $5 and wish I had more! Yay for impulse buys.

It always takes me forever to arrange flowers. I finally got my greatest inspiration when I noticed a speck of a goldfish snack stained my fairy. Solution: Add more flowers! Perfect!

Went a little nuts with the flowers, butterflies, stick pins, brads, glimmer mist, stickles, and gems. Also known as "a good time." The blue flower on the right is by Stephanie. The butterflies are from a Fiskars punch and topped with stickles and gems. Ribbon by American Crafts.

Yes, you have definitely seen this digi on my blog before. She is from Digital 2 for Tuesday, one of my favorite digi sites ever. I colored her with Loew-Cornell pencils and she is topped with shimmer chalk and rubbed a bit with stickles. I've also noticed a trend of a bit on stickles on the edge of the stamping mat. Tried it here and I definitely like it.

A Fiskars corner punch. Cut out and inked up. I got this punch from the clearance section at Ms awhile back. More yay for impulse buys.

A fun dimensional view. Die cuts from Storybook, most favorite cart ever.

Overdone Fairy Card Procedure
Day 1: Print and color fairy.
Day 2: Choose LO/inspiration, design die cuts and choose pp.
Day 3: Die cut and arrange. Stitch.
Day 4: Choose ribbon, stress over flower arrangement. Finally get it right because you dropped a goldfish on your project.
Day 5: Glue. With at least 3 different types of glue.
Day 6: Cut card base, line the inside, and adhere the front. Add stick pins just because.


More D2T. Time Well Spent.

The LO for this card was inspired by Karen. Love her work! Papers by BG.
