Splitcoaststamper's Sketch Challenge

Hello everyone . Today was splitcoaststamper’s sketch challenge (SC223). I had a lot of fun with it. I tweaked it just a little, because I am having so much fun with the Vintage Print Collage Fairies I have been doing lately. This card was inspired by the sketch, so I would like to thank splitcoast for that. To make this card, I raided my notions drawer and found some blue pillow trim. I decided to edge the center box (#3) with it after embossing the cardstock. With a little detailed blade cutting, embellishing the wings on the fairy, adding on some rickrack, flowers and rhinestones, this is what I came up with. Please leave me a comment on what you think of it. Also, just to let you know, my husband and I are working out the details for my Basic “Thick” envelope tutorial I will be doing soon. Here is an example of one of the "Advanced Thick Envelope" that I will be featuring in this series. Just click the ebay icon on the top right. I have a little surprise for my followers. My husband is really good at creating documents and has agreed to make up an envelope pattern for downloading. So, if you are not a follower, then jump on the bandwagon, because you won’t want to miss the detailed description and pattern coming soon. Plus, I have one more thing to share with you. It is a special tool that has been a big help to me while trying to line up the sides of my envelopes for that perfect flap over. There is nothing more frustrating than trying to get it just right and your envelope ending up lopsided. This tool is guaranteed to help prevent that. All will be revealed in a few days, so stay tuned. Subscribe, follow, link, comment on my blog candy post and you might just win my give a way. Thanks again for stopping by and be sure to leave me a comment. Hey, don’t forget to tell someone you love them today! For Detailed look of entire card set CLICK HERE!!


  1. Hi Priscilla!

    You are just a wealth of information. I cannot wait to see your tutorial! I love your envelopes. I'll keep checking back. Thanks for sharing that with us. Thanks for helping me out with my blog too. Luv ya... ;)

    p.s. cool card that you did for this challenge. Very pretty papers.

  2. Wow Priscilla, this is another amazing card. I just love the embossing folders you chose to use to accent this and that blue pillow trim makes a perfect frame for your fairy. I'm totally loving the stiching you did on this card too, it just flows so well with the rest of the design!
    Can't wait for the envelope download and to see that secret tool. I have been itching to my own envelopes and I know this will be the inspiration I need to get going on that project.
    One last about giving us a look at the insides of your cards? I'm always thrilled when people include that when posting their cards and I'm sure that you would have some awesome eyecandy to share in that department. I'm starting to sound like an addict here, but the more you show me the more I'm hooked:)

  3. Hey Priscilla, this is so pretty. I'm looking foward to your envelope tutorial. I'm always looking for new ways to do things. :)
