Purple Fairy Bear

Good morning! On my post the other day for the new Pretty Pink Posh Release Hop, I posted a tiny sneak of this card, and promised full details later - soooo...I'm back with more photos and details! (There are still a few days to hop along and leave comments and have a chance to win one of the prizes - click HERE to head back to my post for details if you haven't been there yet!)

I really am loving the new Stitched Stars dies - the sizes are so fun and perfect for tiny shaker cards like this, or larger ones! I used the second largest star in the set for the shaker element on this card. Then, I wanted to use the darling little bear in the Halloween Friends stamp set, but thought it would be fun to convert it into a little fairy bear. So I colored it up with Copics, then carefully fussy cut it out, trimming off the antennae on the head. I also added some Stickles to the wings and belly, and a bit of white gel pen dots on the cheeks.

The sentiment comes from Fox Friends stamp set, heat embossed on a little strip of back cardstock. I filled my shaker with the fun Winter Sparkle Sequin Mix - leaving out the snowflakes so that instead of winter it meshed with a fairy dust theme!

Tied it all together with a Scallop Frame around the outside, a bit of jute twine, and a few white enamel dots.
