Believe in the Magic of Christmas

Hi friends,

although we are still in the middle of November, it is starting to smell like Christmas around town!! Don't you think? And I couldn't be more excited!! I love Christmas lights, all the beautiful decorations around the town and of course all the Christmas goodies that the markets are now starting to sell. So this weekend I decided to play with my own homemade Christmas cards and decorations...or with both combined in the same projects!

This time I chose this Winter Fairy from Penny Black. Actually these fairies are designed from the incredible Mo Manning. They are gorgeous!

Supplies: Fairy Winter stamp, Copics, Snowflake punch from Martha Stewart, Wow glitter, Feathers, Ribbon Flowers and Felt flowers, Sleight bell, American crafts Ribbon, Distress Inks.

Lately I have been a little obsessed with two colors: aqua mint and strawberry-like-red. They are very soft colors and they combined really well together. 


Also, the other day I went to a little crafty shop at my hometown where I found these awesome feathers of different colors and the tiny bottles which I filled with some fairy dust!! They are just perfect for this fairy theme project.
Do you see also the little red sleight bell between the Winter tickets?

Here there is a close up of the stamped imaged which I colored with copics.  

Copics: B000, BG11, BG13,E00, E11,  E13, E15, E18,  R20, R22, R27, R29

I hope you are getting ready for some good Christmas!!

“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says "Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.” ― Lewis Carrol
