COF July Blog Hop!

Welcome to the cafe! Today's Brew: A hot, steaming mug of blog hop! Today is the Crafters of Faith blog hop. Kelly, at Sandcastle Stamper, was our hostess with the mostest this month, and she came up with an awesome idea. Kelly sent us all a little kit filled with papers, embellishments, and this sweet stamped image. Our job was to use at least two papers, three embellishments, and this adorable little fairy angel in a creative and crafty way.

As soon as I saw her sweet dangling legs, I knew that I wanted them to dangle on the card somehow. That's when I decided on a tent topper card. I used a square of 4 1/4 cardstock as the base, knowing that it would fit in standard A2 envelopes.

I'm always a little intimidated when it comes to coloring in images. I'd love to take a COPIC class one day. But in the meantime, I used my Prismas and added a few colors that I pulled from the colorful paper. Of course, she needed twinkly wings!  I added this sentiment from Waltzingmouse Stamps (Blessed By You) because I am truly blessed by all of the ladies at Crafters of Faith! It's been great fun getting to know all of you this summer!

Thanks for stopping by the cafe today! Now it's time to grab your coffee mug and hop on over to these blogs!

  3. Darling card- and what a fun fun challenge! Love her with her swinging legs and the tent card is a great idea!

  4. Maryrose, you went for a red hair too. It was my first time colouring one red hair and I loved it. I love those wings too!!!. and the fact the she is hanging from the window is so cute!!!. About the copics, there is tons of demonstrations on YouTube and the cheapest place to buy them is Oozak... just saying... Your colouring is great anyways!!!

  5. Mary Rose, this is awesome! I love they way you have Nora out of the box. I used glitter on the wings too but they didn't show up as nicely as yours do. Great job!
