Sweet November Preview Day 3- Josie and Mia

Welcome to the last day of Sweet November stamp previews for August. Today we are featuring the Fairwees "Josie" and "Mia."

First up is Josie. I wanted to also feature the new Sweet November Mason Jar stamp so I decided to make a gift card.  I stamped the jar and then just the lid portion onto Copics X-Press It cardstock, coloring all with Copic markers. I then stamped the jar again onto a piece of acetate with StazOn ink. I made it shaker style by creating a sandwich with a backdoor inside the card so the recipient could easily extricate the money without destroying the card. The Little Something sentiment is new also and goes perfectly with all the Fairwees.



Products: Sweet November stamps, Crate Paper dp, My Favorite Things Die-namics, StazOn ink, Copic Markers

Copics: Jar/Lid-BG0000, BG10, BG11, C00, C1, C3, C5; Skin-E000, E00, E11, R20; Hair-E33, E55, E29; Wings-BG0000, BG10, BG11; Clothing/Shoes-Y21, Y23, Y26, R00, R30, R32

Next is Mia and I decided to go a little more "granola" with her. The Swiss Pixies Birdhouse is a digital stamp and be can found here in the All That Scraps store. It is also available in rubber too here. I printed it onto Copics X-Press It cardstock and then stamped Fairwee Mia onto the same square, inking around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Antique Linen. I made the base card skinnier than normal then cut out the main panel with a Lacey Square Spellbinders Nestie. I cut another piece from the same Nestie in order to complete the vertical sides. For the border I first used my Fiskars corrugating tool onto a strip of kraft cardstock. I then cut a strip from it with the new C.C. Designs Fairwee Tiny Scallop die. I dabbed on   some cream and yellow acrylic paint here and there with my finger. The border also disguises the fact that I combined two pieces to make the lacy vertical borders.
