Love You – Fairy Much!

June 30, 2021

Karen here today. I am sharing a card today that I made with the Fairy 1 die. I love the sweet “Once Upon a Time” release from Joset! The sentiments that go with it are very sweet.

To create this card, I cut an 8-1/2″x11″ sheet of 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock in half and folded it to create a top-fold cardbase. Then I cut a piece of pink cardstock at 4″x5-1/4″ and another piece of Soft Finish Cardstock at 3-3/4″x5″ for the card front.

I cut the pieces of the Fairy 1 dieset with 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock. I usually lay them all out in order to help me figure out what needs to be colored with which colors. I then colored this sweet fairy with Copic markers as follows:

  • Skin: E000, E01, R20 (for blusher)
  • Eyes: C7
  • Mouth: R4
  • Dress and shoes: R81, R83, YG13, YG17
  • Wings: YG00
  • Hair: Y23, Y26
  • Wand: E23, Y26

I used the Once Upon a Time Sentiments and the Stitched Hexagon Dies in varying sizes. I figured out what sizes by simply laying them out. (Note that once I got the pieces all ready to lay down, I moved things around just a bit!)

In assembling the card, I added some twine wrapped around the white piece and a couple jewels near the sentiment. That’s all! Fun and easy. Thank you for stopping by today!

Craftily yours, Karen

Karen here from Craftily Yours. I’m excited to show you some cards I made using Joset’s new release! So many cute fairies, princes and princesses. She also threw in an adorable frog, some background dies and some great sentiments. So much fun!

These new items aren’t on the website yet – but they will be VERY soon! You can find them now by contacting your local craft store that carries our wonderful products!

This first card using the Fairy 1 dies. How cute is that sweet girl!?! She is colored with Copic markers. I used the Organic Triangle Background Die. I love the look of using the “waste” in this die. The sentiment is from the Once Upon a Time Stamps.

To do it, first colored the background with three colors of Distress Oxide inks and covered the back of a piece of 90lb White Soft Finish Cardstock with 101mm adhesive. Then I ran it through the die cutting machine. Next, I cut another die cut to use as my template and pieced back in the “waste” part of the die. There is probably an easier way to do this, but I actually found it to be very relaxing like putting together a puzzle!

And there’s a new accessories set – called Once Upon a Time Accessories. Adorable little flower, butterfly, clouds, mushroom, etc. Love it. I used the die cut from my first card as a background for this one. Sweet. Again, I colored with Copic Markers.

Thanks for stopping by!

Craftily yours, Karen
