Captured Fairies Card

Hi everyone!!! I've been meaning to post this whimsical card featuring captured fairies.

For the bottles, I used my new stamps from Graphic 45's Curiosity Shop collection, stamped them on acetate and fussy cut them out. The fairies, frog and flowers are fussy cut from the Once Upon a Springtime collection by Graphic 45. I used papers from LeRomantique and Once Upon a Springtime.

I decorated the bottles with twine and ribbons as well as a cameo, a pearl and slider buckle, and a crown charm for the prince who's just waiting to bust out of his frog body when that special princess comes along. LOL

Hope you like the card and have a great weekend!

Gorjuss/Vanity Fair Card

Today I'm sharing a new card that I created using the Gorjuss stamp called Ruby and the My Mind's Eye Vanity Fair paper collection.

I LOVE Gorjuss stamps and it was fun creating this card, although I have to say the fussy cutting for this particular stamp was hard work. All that beautiful hair and the thin ropes of the swing made this a true fussy cutting challenge. LOL. I ultimately had to cut her down to three different pieces and re-assemble her. But it was worth it. The card turned out super cute.

I suspended the Gorjuss girl on a swing from the Tim Holtz hanger from the handing sign die, and I decked out the hanger with lovely I Am Roses flowers in white and orange/tangerine hues, a pretty pink carnation that I spritzed with some Rose Tea Glimmer Mist, plus a two tone maple leaf. I applied Glossy Accents to the cherry blossoms. I'm really digging the orange/tangerine toned flowers from I Am Roses.

For the sentiment, I used my new Graphic 45 Typewriter stamps and punched out the letters with a 5/8" circle punch. The lace trim is from Joann's.

Here's a complete list of the flowers I used with links so you can check them out.
