Fairy Wishes Terrarium


Well hello my crafty Friends!

Today I have a fun project to share with you. As soon as I saw Fleurette Bloom's Fairy Wishes Stamp set I knew exactly what I had to create... To me it screamed terrarium!

Here is a look at it all lit up in the dark. Think this will make a great night light for my daughter! How cool is that!?

My initial thought was to do it in a terracotta pot with a glass bowl and lid. Unfortunately, I tried it and it didn't work so well as the stamped images were too big for the bowl I had. So, I found myself a taller plastic container that I had stashed away in my closet. I knew this hexagonal container would come in handy someday. It's actually a Kirkland Chocolate container from this past Christmas, so if you have one kicking around don't throw it out, just remove the label and you'll eventually find a use for it!

Here is a closer looks at this magical place!

It is so pretty in the daylight too.


Here are the supplies I used, remember to be creative and use supplies already you have.

  • Fairy Wishes Stamp Set 
  • Stamped colored die cut images (fairy, rabbit, mushrooms)
  • used Spectrum Noir Markers to color images + clear Wink of Stella
  • a clear plastic container
  • battery operated light
  • hot glue and glue gun
  • dry moss
  • river rocks
  • twigs
  • silk flowers
  • wire
  • burlap
  • glue
  • star sequins
  • raffia
  • soil (optional)


Hope this project has inspired you to step out of your stamping comfort zone and create something unique. With a little imagination everything is possible!

Fairy Cottage featuring Lawn Fawn Fairy Friends | 3D paper Fairytale House | SVGCuts

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 favorite 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 to be one of my favorite 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 multicolored string that I had purchased around Christmas time. The different color of lights just makes the cottage look magical!

Along the bottom of the cottage, I added floral stamps that I colored 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 colored card stock, simply because I have lots of supplies and find it difficult sometimes to coordinate patterned papers with projects this size.  I like to let patterned paper inspire the project rather than the other way around. 


The only alteration I did to the original file of the house was to add some circle cutouts 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 colored the velum sections of the window in various colors. I also added Wink of Stella for that extra sparkle to the window and 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 through 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!"
