Emerald Faeries New Release Hop

 Hi All!

Welcome to the new release blog hop to showcase the two new Emerald Faeries available at Deb's Creations! There are 2 super sweet new images being released today, "Isla" and "Willy and Mia" and these new designs are available to purchase now in digital and preorder in rubber!

Our blog hop began today over on DT member Vicki's blog and if you've been hopping along with us, you should be joining me from Ronda's blog. If you just stumbled on to the hop today, please head back over to Vicki's blog and join the fun!


I have two cards to share, one using Isla and the other using Willy and Mia. These images were easy to color and lots of fun to work with, I know I will be using them again. I want to thank Deb for inviting me along as a guest DT for this release!

For this card I wanted to go for a more vintage feel and so I've distressed the edges of the papers and kept the colors more muted. Sadly, my attempt to color my own flower with reinkers resulted in an orange flower when I was shooting for peach! It does look less bright in person. The papers are BG Curio. I used the new Whimsy Shapeology Double Scallop border die and some vintage seam binding to create one layer, they used a doily on the other layer. The image was colored with Copics and then framed with a crackle paint finished chipboard piece. I added another layer using the clock image from the new Whimsy Time Flies set and did a cracked glass finish on the face of the clock. The final accents are some vintage brads, flowers, and a charm.

Willy and Mia
Next is my card using the sweet pair Willy and Mia, aren't they darling! I colored the image with Copics and then framed it with oval nesties and added some stitching to the edges.

The papers on this card are Memory Box Minuet and I've stitched all the edges with the sewing machine. I also used the Shapeology Double Border die on the edges of the two smaller paper layers. I've embellished with lots of flowers, glitter, and a sentiment from the new Whimsy Spring Letter Seals set. I cut and adhered some butterflies near the sentiment. They were from a piece of paper. And pearls finish off this card.

Thank you so much for stopping at my blog today. The next stop on the hop is the talented Tracey M! Be sure to stop by her blog and see what she has in store for you today.
