Springtime Greetings


A sure sign that Spring has officially arrived is of course seeing the beautiful daffodils in bloom.   So I thought this image would be  perfect for a “springtime greetings” card.    It’s called Stained Glass Fairy Friends ~ available at I Brake For Stamps.   For any of you fairy collectors out there, IBFS has LOTS of gorgeous fairies for you.   Be sure to use Code SAVE10MARY for a 10% discount off your entire order.



The DP is from Basic Grey Kioshi – all these papers couldn’t be more perfect for Springtime, pastel toned projects.   The ribbon, which seemed to be made for this paper, is from Amuse.   The image is colored with Copics and some Crystal Stickles were added to the flower centers, fairy wings and hummingbird.    The sentiment is computer generated.

It’s a dreary, rainy day here in Wisconsin – Hope it’s sunny and bright where you are!


Copics Used:   Y000, 00, 02, 04, 11, 13, 21;  YR00, 01, 02;  E00, 11, 30, 50, 51, 53;  G12, 20;  YG6, 7, 11;  B12;  BG72;  BV23;  R20;  W000, 5

    Beautiful Mary, the ribbon you used is so subtle, it couldn’t be more perfect in your layout. Yellows, oranges are just not me, but when I see uses like this I love them. There is a vividness that make it all sooo pleasing! Thanks!
