moments filled with wonder


Happy World Card Making Day!!  I happened to see a post earlier this week on Facebook about a blog hop celebrating World Card Making Day and thought it would be fun to join in.  It's been quite a while since I shared a card here on my blog and I've definitely been missing stamping and card making.  Things have been busy with kids and family, but I hope to get to stamp more soon.  Anyway, on to my card. :)



For my card, I used the gorgeous Silver Fairy image from Wee Stamps.  (You can buy the image in its digital form from Wee Stamps here and as a rubber stamp from Whimsy Stamps here.)  Sylvia's images are always some of my all time favorites and I just love this image.  The sentiment is from the Magical Mini Letter Seals sentiment set from Whimsy Stamps.  I used some patterned papers from Maja Designs.


I colored the image with copic markers.  (Sorry, I didn't write the colors down this time.)  I added some white paint to the edges of my cardstocks, image, and sentiment.


Lots of beautiful flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts along with some leaves I had in my stash.  Twine, button, crocheted lace, and doilies all from my stash as well.


The metal filigree corner was originally silver.  I embossed it using some Frantage from Stupendous.  It's a thick embossing powder with some glitter in it.  I simply dabbed my filigree corner on an embossing pad and then in the embossing powder.  I heated the filigree corner (held with craft tweezers) from underneath so that the embossing powder did not blow away before it melted.


Thanks so much for stopping by and have fun on the World Card Making Day hop!  I know there is going to be lots of amazing inspiration shared!  You can see all the links here in the World Card Making Day blog hop.
