Fairy Wishes!

Happy Saturday Everyone! Today, I have a "Fairy" special birthday card!

This was inspired from {Pin}spirational Challenge #65  {pin}spiring picture
I just love the Purples, greens, and the whimsical feel of it.
I started with a Large Circle Cutout in Bazzil's Purple Cardstock and folded the back circle at an inch from the top to create the crease to my card. I cut out two smaller circles in different cardstocks/papers for the base card.
I used Patches the Fairy Digi from Saturated Canary and colored her with Spectrum Noir Markers. I made a double set of the wings and colored them and used Stickles in Diamond to give them some sparkle.

The Birthday sentiment is from Stampin' Up! The larger butterflies were made with an EK punch; the smaller ones from Fiskars Mini Butterfly punch. The flowers, ribbon, bling, pearls and buttons were from my stash. The crochet Dragon fly is a new purchase from my local craft store- was just waiting for the right card to use it! :)
I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
The following are the Spectrum Noir Markers I used:
Hair: EB5, Eb8, GB1, GB10
Skin: TN2, TN3, TN4
Cheeks/Lips: CR5
Clothing: CG1, CG2, CG3, LV2, LV3, LV1, PL4, PL5
Shoes: PL1, PL5
Wings: GT2, GT3
Dotted Background: BT2, BT4, BT5, Blender Pen
Thank you for stopping By.
Happy Craftin'!

TAGplorations~January Challenge

Woohoo! It's time for another TAGplorations Challenge!

This month's theme is WINTER and the optional twist is: TEXTURE PASTE
Here's my tag 

I started with the largest Manila Tags Die cut from MDF board and applied some pieces of cardboard. I then applied a layer of Gesso. Once dry, I applied Prima Platinum Crackle Texture Paste in random areas and let it air dry so I could get the crackle effect. 
I then used Lindy's Stamp Gang Sprays in browns and blues to add some color to my background. Then I added the Snowman I  created using different sized circles cut from scrap papers in my stash. I used Vintage Photo Distress Crayon on the edges for some highlights and dimension. I created his arms from the TH Bird Branch Die and tied the Sentiment (TH Christmas Word Bands) with twine. 

I finished with the Uppercase Alpha in the bottom as that's my wish...for Peace. 
And some Paper Smooches Stars Die cuts finished off my tag.

I sure hope you join us for this fun challenge and I…

We have a lot of designers with some wonderful GIVING THANKS makes and some amazing prizes! There's also a linky party for you to share your THANKFUL/GRATEFUL makes, so be sure to hop along and link up!
Today I have 2 tags using alcohol inks and the new Gratitude is the Blossom - Typografia Thankful and Something to be Thankful for - Typografia Thankful stamp sets. 

I created backgrounds using different warm colors of Alcohol Inks and cut them out using TAGplorations- Tags 1. I then stamped the Gratitude is the Blossom - Typografia Thankful and Something to be Thankful for - Typografia Thankful sentiments with Jet Black Archival ink and added some doodles using Metallic Sharpie pens. Some Skittles finished them off. 
Here's my Something to be Thankful For tag:

STAMPlorations~ Sanna's Stencil Release Hop!

Woohoo! STAMPlorations is having a Hop showcasing the lovely Sanna Lippert's Stencil Designs!
Be sure to  check out all her amazing me, you'll LOVE THEM!! 
I used Trees 1 and Flowers 2 and made an art journal page:

I used my Mini Art Journal ..which was a kiddies MDF book. I applied DecoArt NEON acrylic paints  with a brayer. Once dry, I applied a little white gesso with the brayer to soften the background. I then created a Circle mask from acetate and used the same bright acrylic paints thru the FLOWERS 2 stencil . This mask allowed for me to create the "flower bubbles" on my page. 
I then used black acrylic paint thru the TREES 1 Stencil as I felt my page needed some black. I then used my Jane Davenport pen around my "bubbles" and doodled to highlight them.  I finished with my sentiment from Create Bold Sentiments set and the CUTplorations Uppercase Die set
I sure hope I've inspired you today and be sure to continue hoppin' as there ar…
