Happy Friday!!! Yay, the end of the week is finally here. Whew, what a work week for me, lots of stuff going on and I'm so happy that it's Friday! Taking my friend out to dinner for her birthday tonight and then we are going to see the new Conan the Barbarian movie because we both love Jason Mamoa! Who knows if the movie will be good, it will be good to see him in a loincloth! LOL!! Anyhoos, would love to hear what you have planned for tonight or even the weekend.
Today we have another fun challenge over at the Farm Fresh Challenge blog. Yippee!!! All you have to do is use buttons on your card or project. For more inspiration please hop on over to the FFC blog and feast your eyes on some gorgeous creations by the DT.
For my share I used Tink from the new Fairy Princess clear stamps set and made a book mark. Wow, these are the cutest stamps. They are smaller than the normal TGF stamps, and if you can believe it they stamp so well! You definitely have to pick up this set to experience how well they stamp. Just as good as the red rubber. To find out more & to see some awesome creations check out the TGF blog. To purchase this stamp set and the other cute Bantastic clear stamp set head on over to the store.
Beware of glitter it can be addicting!!! So, I used Tink, the mushrooms and the sentiment "Fairy Dust is a Must" for my bookmark.
Not sure if you can tell in this picture how much glitter there is. I went a bit crazy with the Stickles as you'll see in the next few pictures.. I'm so pleased with the results. Here are some close up pictures and hopefully you can see the glitter
I stickled the outline of the clouds. The centers on the butterflies have Viva pearl pen in cream and I used a Copic marker to color it yellow. The button is from a BG set I got at Big Lots and the ribbon I used to tie it is a recycled piece from a shirt I altered. Anyone else use clothing scraps for their projects? hehe...
I think in this picture you can see more of the glitter on the clouds and some fairy dust coming behind her. I think I like this next picture the best. Here is what the bottom of the BM looks like up close.
I found these two very tiny buttons and created this scene below. Had to Stickle the bottom because of the cute sentiment. Looks like fairy dust all over the place! I think it gives it a whimsical feel. (hehe) Lastly, since I wrapped the ribbon around the outer part of the BM, I added some kraft paper and stamped more cute images of Tink flying and kept it simple by not coloring them in, just added some distress to the edges and a couple punched flowers.
Ok my friends, it is now your turn to use a button on your creation and then you need to upload it to the Gallery for a chance to win a single stamp of your choice. You have until Thursday before 12pm CST to be eligible.
Mahalo for your support and heart-warming comments. Have a fairy wonderful weekend!!
