I used the wondeful FILIGREE MESSAGE ROUNDED RECTANGLE Die for my two cards today as a background, but in different ways. The focal points such as the flower and the fairy as well as the sentiments are all from the FAIRYTALE SPINNERS stamp set.

  6. I always enjoy watching your videos . Your cards are gorgeous and this is an awesome release.

  7. Vicky, I love fairies as they are a part of my heritage, but I have resisted buying most fairy stamp sets as they are a bit to “cutsey.” This one is just about OK, but you have made it irresistible! I love your cards!

  14. Pretty cards Vicky. Boo boos are part of our creative process. There is always something we can do to fix it?. Love how you painted that fairy!!!

  21. I am loving this release and seeing all the beautiful cards being made. Thanks for sharing and inspiring.

  30. Love the different fairy options. Very cute/pretty cards. Love filling in the holes with the glitter. For a minute I thought you were going to piece the whole thing with colored pieces. That would have been too much for me! Glitter I can do.
