Hi! I had a fairy good weekend! Get it?! Sorry, that was bad but really, I did!! I had most of Saturday to myself and I pretty much just played with my new favorite stamp set Fairy Celebration the whole day. I considered digging into my GIGANTIC box of amazing new stuff from the new Stampin' Up! catalog, but... I was captivated by the fairies!
I had quite a few commissioned cards to make this past week and I felt obligated to complete them before I started playing around for fun. Friday I got a call requesting another graduation card (one day's notice) and since I couldn't let go of the fairies this is what I came up with for my customer. Lucky for me my customers who order custom cards often give me creative freedom (thank goodness!). I used the Fairy Celebration set combined with sentiments from the new Places You'll Go to make this fun Graduation card. I hope the recipient will be excited about it as the inside is customized with her name and the year.
I thought the sentiment, "Adventure Awaits" was perfect for someone who is graduating and heading out into the world to start their life. What an exciting time!
Oh, Boy!! Check out these fairy wings! They are absolutely insanely beautiful! Did you know that they coordinate with the butterfly punch so you can give the fairies 3D wings?! Yes, it's true, I haven't done it yet but just you wait! For now, these wings and fairy dust were painted by dipping my Clear Wink of Stella into some Tempting Turquoise Ink and painting onto the paper. In case you haven't tried this yet it does not damage your Wink of Stella. The ink wipes right out of the brush without any effort. Too cool!
Here's one last shot at the card. I should probably mention that the fairy's dress is painted with Sweet Sugarplum which is one of our new In Colors this year. If you haven't checked out our new In Colors please do-They are amazing!
So, what do you think? Does this card live up to being a "Graduation" card? Please let me know what you think! If you have any questions or would like help ordering products so that you can make your own fairy cards and projects, please let me know. I would love to help you out.
Have an amazing day everybody!
