Happy Easter weekend, friends! My Easter Break has officially kicked off. Even though I have some work to do for college, I will take lots of breaks to relax and make cards. Today I am here with a new Saturday Stamp Day video featuring the Fairy Friends set from Lawn Fawn.
I created a sequin shaker and I did two fun die cutting techniques: partial die cutting and inlaid die cutting.
I started out by coloring the Fairy Friends set with Copic markers. I used a bunch of different colors to give this card a whimsical feeling. My coloring technique is really easy. Usually, I only reach out to two colors. Sometimes I tend to use three colors. However, I always use the lightest color first to saturate the paper. Then, I use the darkest color to add the shading. To blend that out, I either use the lightest color or the medium color. It’s easy! 🙂
After coloring and die cutting the fairies, I started by creating the main element for the card. First, I die cut the three flowers of the Fairy Friends set. Next, I used a circle die to do some partial die cutting. Partial die cutting is a cool technique I learned from Jennifer McGuire. Once I die cut all of the flowers, I used the mini MISTI tool from My Sweet Petunia to line up the stamps with the flower die cuts. I also colored these flowers with Copic markers.
It’s been a while since I made a sequin shaker so I grabbed the Fuse tool and created a quick shaker. I filled the shaker up with Walter’s Sparkly Shaker Mix. This is an exclusive shaker mix by Little Things from Lucy’s Cards for Winnie & Walter. I really liked the colors! For the sentiment, I wanted to highlight the word ‘fairy’ so I did some masking. The mini MISTI tool made it even easier since I had the sentiment already mounted on there. I used Long Island Teal embossing powder from WOW for the gorgeous aqua color. It has some gold shimmer in there which is simply beautiful. I finished off the card by adhering a couple of sequins here and there. 🙂
That’s it for now! Thank you so much for reading my post and for watching my video. I hope you’re having a great Easter weekend. xo
