So… today's stamp set is Festive Flurry. This is a beautiful snowflake stamp set that has a coordinating set of framelits (sold separately or in a bundle) so you don't have to fussy cut those intricate snowflakes!
I only created one project for this blog hop. My wrist is still in a cast so it takes me a very long time to do anything!
I just read the children's book, Fairy Houses by Tracy Kane, and I have fairies on the mind. I thought it would be fun to create a card with a snowflake fairy and here is what I came up with.
I made her with Wisteria Wonder and Whisper White and a touch of Illuminate Glimmer ink. First I stamped 4 snowflakes: 2 small, 1 medium, 1 large. I skipped the extra large snowflake. Then I cut them with the Festive Flurry Framelits. To give them some definition and shimmer, I rubbed on some Illuminate Glimmer ink and sponged the edges with Wisteria Wonder.
Next I folded 3 snowflakes of graduating sizes in half, and layered them to create the "skirt". The smallest snowflake frames the snowfairy's head. I tried giving her hair but it wasn't working so I went with a face only. Finally, I added Basic Rhinestones to her head and skirt. Pearls would work too but snow sparkles so I went with rhinestones. Oh, and I made a small bow with silver ribbon for her dress.
I kind of wish I had skipped the sentiment but since snow falling is such a peaceful scene I stamped Peace on Earth in the bottom corner.
