Fairy Cottage featuring Lawn Fawn Fairy Friends


Hello my friends!

I am super excited to share with you all my latest SVG Cuts project. When Mary first released this kit I knew exactly how I was going to make it. I just needed the time to do it... finally I can show you what I have been up to the last few weeks! I know I have said this before, but I think this has to be one of my very favourite 3D projects! 

So here is my take on the SVG Cuts Fairy Cottage. How cute is that?!?
 I am SO in love with it... and the Lawn Fawn Fairy Friend Stamps are the perfect match for this piece!


Like some of my recent larger projects, this Fairy Cottage will be displayed on one of the Hospital Units I work on. I think the sentiments and the whole fairy theme is perfect for the patients at our hospital. Even if it is just to make someone smile, I have done my job and all the work was worth it!


So let me give you a tour of this little cottage...

As you can see I used a lot of different embossing folders, this adds a lot of interest and added detail to the cottage without a lot of work. I also thought it would be fun to continue the twig railing down the steps. I think that has too be one of my favourite touches! I loved how Mary added the spinners on her cottage and I happened to have the same ones in my stash, so I thought if I added a clock face it would look cool too!


The back of the fairy cottage has a large opening for plugging in a string of lights or as I did by adding a LED battery powered pack. I chose to use a multicoloured string that I had purchased around Christmas time. The different colour of lights just makes the cottage look magical!

Along the bottom of the cottage I added floral stamps that I coloured and cut out from the same Lawn Fawn Fairy Friends Stamp set. To do that, I used Tuxedo black Memento ink and my Spectrum Noir markers then used my Silhouette PixScan to do the trace and cut them out.   


Also, to the perimeter of the cottage I used this grass file that comes from the FREE Design section, just welded the files together to create longer strips. 

I stuck to plain coloured card stock, simply because I have lots of supply and find it difficult sometimes to coordinate patterned papers with projects this size.  I like to let patterned paper inspire the project rather then the other way around. 


The only alteration I did to the original file of the house was to add some circle cut outs on the mushroom like roof.  I think it would have looked good with the solid panels, but I guess this is how my mind thinks a fairy tail mushroom looks like ;)


To create the stain glass appearance I used my Spectrum Noir Markers and coloured the velum sections of the window in various colours. I also added Wink of Stella for that extra sparkle to window and the all of the fairies wings. 


With white pigment ink and a Studio G Alphabet set, I stamped various "fairy" like sentiments on the steps and the rock. I thought of my patients going though their cancer treatments when I was doing this part and words that would motivate them to get through it.


For fun, I thought it would look cool to make the fairies look like they were flying around their house. I used some red wire and attached them with hot glue. 

I thought the fairy holding this stamped phrase was the perfect finishing touch!


Well thanks for stopping by! Let me know what you think of this project 
:)

I hope you all enjoyed my take of the SVG Cuts Fairy Cottage featuring Lawn Fawn Fairy Friends. Hopefully it has inspired you to create one for yourself or for someone else!

and like the Fairies said "have a magical day!"
Happy Crafting  :)
