Fairy Girl & Beach Boy

This morning I would like to share 2 more of the cards I made yesterday!!

~ Golden Fairy Girl card ~


First thing I did for this card is die cut all my pieces – a circle from MFT,  small banners from Stampin’ Up! which I cut one end off of. I also trimmed a gold striped shiny scrap to 4 1/4″ by 2 1/2″. I took a side folding A2 card and placed it in the Polka Dots embossing folder from Stampin’ Up!.

I stamped my cute fairy girl from the Fairy Sweet set by Sugar Pea Designs with Versamark ink and embossed with gold powder. Colored her in using my “Ziggy“s and added Wink Of Stella clear pen to add sparkle!

I used the sketch to design my card and took inspiration from the touches of bright pink and gold in the photo!

I also made this card using an Adorable stamp set from SU! – Beach Babies (circa 1999)

~ Beach Boy Sunshine Card ~


I loved how this card turned out – first thing I did was use an oval die cut from MFT to make my template to stamp and shade in. I penciled in a line where my boy and sandcastle would go, then I stamped them in Versafine ink and embossed them with clear powder. All my coloring was done with my “Ziggy“s and the shading was done using Bliss Blue ink and Creamy Caramel ink – both from SU! I used masking paper from Inkadinkado to cover up my images while I shaded. I used the Ranger Mini Ink Blending Tool and replacement foams for the various colors.  I cut out the sun that I had stamped and colored and put it on with foam squares.  Sentiment came from a Sunny Studio Stamps set called Tropical Paradise – also stamped and embossed.  I die cut my whole panel using Stitched Rectangle die from Lawn Fawn – added it to a Brilliant Blue card base and I was done.

    Another amazing card duo! The gold and pink combo is so elegant and lovely! I love the shine you added with the strip of gold striped paper and the gold embossing. The embossed background looks fabulous! Such a sweet scene you created with the darling beach boy! Great job with the ink blending! Love it!
