Fairy Stardust Card

As some of you probably know, some of the things I love are angels, fairies, and snow.  I've had this Penny Black stamp for awhile and finally decided to play with my Copics using this image.

Isn't this little fairy the cutest thing?  My Copic coloring skills aren't the greatest, but I had a lot of fun coloring this image.  I used Stickles on it for added sparkle.  The image was mounted onto brown cardstock and adhered with foam tape to the glittered MME snowflake paper.  The snowflakes across the top were made with a Martha Stewart punch and highlighted with Stickles.  The punched and embossed snowflake border below the image is also from Martha Stewart.  The large snowflake is actually a brad from Spare Parts.  I embossed the Let it Snow! sentiment with silver embossing powder and cut it out with a circular punch.  The tiny snowflake stickers are from Martha Stewart.

This card actually came together rather quickly.  I definitely am going to start using my stamps and Copics more often.

Finally, my wish for snow was granted and was it ever!  We ended up having a blizzard Friday night through most of Saturday.  I think this is probably the most beautiful snowfall I've seen in awhile especially last night with the lights shining on it.  Here is a photo I took this morning as the sun is up and starting to melt away what fell.

Yes, I was one happy girl this weekend!  I also got to spend a nice amount of time crafting while making homemade chicken noodle soup and a crumb cake.  It really was nice being indoors with my family and enjoying a relaxing few days.  Of course, digging out began today!

Thank you so much for stopping by!  I appreciate each comment you leave.  Have a wonderful week ahead.  For those in the path of this storm, stay safe and warm.

  2. Patty: that little snow angel is just precious, and you did a great job colouring the image. I also like your addition of the glitter and snowflakes. You have been waiting for a good covering of snow and you got it! Nice to see that the sun was out today after that big storm - makes the snow look sparkly. Thanks for sharing the pic.
