SCACD Fairies

Good morning! Did you know that Susana recently released three adorable Spring Flora Fairies by Carmen Medlin for SCACD?? Some of the design team has been sharing some gorgeous creations with these new fairies over  at the SCACD Store Blog "Follow Your Heart".

My card today features one of the Fall Flora Fairies by Carmen Medlin for SCACD. This is Friendship Rose. I paired her up with some papers from Basic Grey. You can find Susana's amazing selection of 6x6 paper pads HERE. Those gorgeous corner accents were created with the Memory Box Die Madera Corner. (click HERE for Susana's selection of Memory Box Dies)  Susana has a lot of these dies back in stock...but they have a tendancy to fly off the shelves, so make sure to grab your favourites quickly!

Friendship Rose was stamped on Neenah and coloured with Copics. If you are a follower of the SCACD store blog, you will likely have seen Danni's fantastic tutorial on masking. To create the sky behind my stamped image, I first masked the image and then cut out a cloud shaped template. I used a make-up sponge to apply Memento Summer Sky using my template to create the clouds. As you move around the sky, shift the angle of your template or even flip it so as to avoid any repeating patterns.The image was cut out and matted with Spellbinders Labels 18. Her wings were coated with Stardust Stickles.

Skin: E000, E00, E11, R02  Hair: E50, Y21, Y23, YR31, E33, E37  Dress: B91, B93, B95, B99, C5, E13, E17, E18, E59  Wings: RV000, YG11, BG0000, BG01

To decorate the inside, I used another Memory Box Die. This one is called Delicate Vine.

Both the Fall Flora Fairies and the new Spring Flora Fairies are available exclusively at SCACD.

Oh, and have you seen the newest Make It Crafty stamps to hit the SCACD shelves?? They are absolutely incredible!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day. :)
