Hopping for Kelly's Birthday!! Yay!

Hello and Welcome to a super fun birthday blog hop to celebrate Kelly!!  

No photo description available.

In honour of Kelly's birthday I have CASED her fun fold!  She has the details and card measurements  for this card on her blog post here!!

I am also sharing my new favourite stamp set from my Stampin' Up! preorder for the new catalogue which goes live on the 4th of June.  It is a hostess stamp set called New Wonders, and it has 11 adorable stamps including 3 images of these super sweet little fairies.  

I've created a couple of these cards with varying hair colour - one of them is for my daughter's birthday coming up, and so after I'd created the little blond fairy, I had to make a brunette to coordinate with my darling girl!!

The images are coloured with watercolour pencils and then I've added the Clear Wink of Stella to make them sparkle.  And THEN, I decided it need MORE sparkle so I spritzed some Champagne Shimmer Mist (mixed with rubbing alcohol) all over the card -inside and out!!  

I've also featured 2 of our new incolours for the cardstock - Seaside Spray and Purple Posy.  The stitched frame images have been mounted onto Gray Granite for a subtle finish.  

I hope you've enjoyed the blog so far!! Keep hopping all the way around and you'll see lots of amazingness and fun as we celebrate Kelly.

Love Julia   x
