SCACD New Release Blog Hop

Good morning bloggers, so glad to have you here for the SCACD Fairy Dust Collection blog hop. You should have arrived from Dianne's blog, but if not and you would like to hop along, then head back to Kathi's blog where the fun begins. 

Today SCACD is introducing the Fairy Dust Collection. These are 6 sweet and sassy Fairies that just make you smile and brighten the day. Elisabeth Bell sprinkled just the right amount of cute, charm and gorgeous on to these special little fairies. These are stamps for right now but also classics to use years from now!

I am featuring the adorable Little Acorns, Big Dreams.

I found a great tutorial by Beate over on Splitcoast Stampers. I love SCS for all it's tutorials and ideas :D It's a Box Card and is made from one sheet of heavy cardstock sized 8.5" x 11"

You just slip the belly band off and the box opens up. 

Once the box was made I set it aside and coloured up my image with copic markers, and of course, some sparkle for her wings. I cut it out with classic circle nesties and sponged the background with Tumbled Glass distress ink whilst leaving the nestie in place - this leaves a white border all around. Then I cut a scalloped circle from pink cardstock, adhered the image to it and then mounted it onto 3D foam before sticking it down onto the belly band. 

Note that for US readers, the stamps can be found here:
And that Dies by SCACD can be found here:

Fabulous box card. I'm going to have to check out Beate's tutorial!

I love the way you colored the fairy and especially love how you colored her hair!

The lace elements and text add such appeal to your project!

I'm so happy you joined us on this blog hop!
