Unstampabelles September Stash & Scraps Challenge

The Challenge for September is sponsored by CraftMad, a great online forum for the papercrafter, although they do sewing swaps as well.
This is the prize on offer for the winner of our Challenge to create something using your Scraps, Old stuff/stash.

My card is made using a flower fairy card kit which I bought a couple of years or more ago from Blue Edge Crafts (BEC) Blue Edge Crafts are the On line store which operates both CraftMad and The Sticker Store.
The kit contains the makings for two cards, base cards with fancy edges, matching envelopes, the fairy images, the fairy stickers, and corner stickers as well as the sentiment stickers.

Since I already had the base card, I simply cut my pattern paper to leave a narrow border once mounted to the base card.
I ran my pattern paper through my 5" Xyron station (available from Blue Edge Crafts) to evenly apply adhesive to one side, then onto that I placed some mulberry paper which has daisy cut outs all over it.
Since this left adhesive in the flower cut outs, I then sprinkled fine crystal glitter over the top and rubbed into the flowers so that they covered the adhesive and gave a nice shimmer to the piece.

I edged the piece with some Tsukneko All purpose Ink in 74 Champagne Mist.
After placing the fairy sticker over the image, I fussy cut it out and mounted to my paper layers using foam mounts.
I used the corner stickers from the kit and added a piece of narrow cream ribbon with a faux knot. I then used double sided tape to stick the topper to the base card.

I used a punch to cut the label for the sentiment sticker which after sponging the edges is mounted over the ribbon with foam mounts.
All the papers used were from my scrap paper box, the only new thing was the ribbon.

Thank you for visiting my blog today, I hope you take part in this challenge.

Happy Crafting

This is very pretty Beth and I bet prettier in real life now that I read about the glitter you added.
