Fairy Tale Friendship.....

Hello everyone: I love Fairies, most of you know that, I love the mere idea that they might actually exist, most little girls dream of them, my granddaughters did when they were little, building houses out of twigs, leaves, flowers in my backyard, trying to lure them with shiny things, like glitter, scrap pieces of gold and silver paper, sequences and Rhine Stones, which I happily provide letting them come into my craft room and take what they needed. I really miss those days but I'm happy I was able to enjoy them. Over at the City Crafter Challenge Blog the theme for week #311 is "Fairy Tale Land" and this is the card I made to participate.

This image is from The Emerald Fairy Collection and it's called "Alley and Beeble", I bought the rubber stamp years ago and as of now, I only found it as a digi HERE, there are other super sweet images but I prefer rubber.
Anyway, I stamped the Fairy onto Canson water color paper with Stazon Jet Black ink because this is a rubber stamp, for my Photopolymer stamps I use Versafine Onix Black ink, which seems to work so much better. I colored it with SU markers and the aqua painter and added a bit of shimmer paint and glitter to her wings and to the flower she is sitting on. 
The embossing folder is from The Paper Studio.
The little hearts are punched with a retired SU corner punch that punches this teeny, tiny, perfect hearts, so pretty.

Here is a picture of the finished inside.

The sentiment is from a retired Flourishes set called "Gerber Daisies" and it's framed inside a frame from another Flourishes set called "Country Charm Labels", the sweet flower is from a SU set called "Flowering Fields".
This is the beautiful inspiration photo from City Crafters.

This is what Fairy Tales are made of.
Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.


  1. Really cute! I like it`s little ears . I love Fairies too(as you know) and enjoy seeing what you do with your fairy stamp collection . This one I have not seen before ?? There are little fairies in the new SU catty this year .

    1. Thank you Sonny, this little Fairy is OLD, oh my goodness and I haven't posted her before, I've used it but not for here, it was purchased way before I started this blog, 90% of my stamps and other things are really old.

  2. all those teeny tiny hearts. the perfect touch!

    1. Thank you Mary, I love this punch and the little hearts you get, so tiny but perfect.

  3. Yea, I've not seen this inked before Maria! She's a cutie! I don't remember that corner punch, but great idea for saving that heart confetti! Can you tell me where the butterfly comes from, I don't have many butterflies, no any punches!

    1. Thank you Patti, no, this cutie has never made her appearance before, I have so many Fairies, I love all of them. This punch is no less than 8 years old and the little butterfly is from SU Papillon Potpourri, there are two punches for this set.
