Good morning!! It’s time for a new Lawn Fawnatics challenge and as you can probably imagine, it’s one of my absolute favorites: Bling it Out! Which is basically code for more and more sparkles!! 😉 Lawn Fawn’s Prisma and Chunky glitter has quickly ascended to one of those “if my craftroom was on fire these are the things I’d grab” items and if you haven’t used them yet I HIGHLY recommend them!! Here’s what I created:
I decided to create a pastel take on traditional red and green Christmas colors and went a little more pink and mint green! I also decided that fairies are responsible for fixing blown Christmas tree lights every year. 😉 To start I blended spun sugar, picked raspberry, and cracked pistachio distress ink onto a piece of strathmore bristol cardstock. I spritzed it with water and shimmer spray and then set it aside to dry while I worked on the rest of my card. Next I die-cut the string of lights from strathmore bristol cardstock and colored them with coordinating shades of copic markers (RV21, RV23, RV25 and BG10, BG11, and BG13. I adhered them to a bottom layer of white cardstock and adhered the tops cut from silver glitter cardstock. I also die-cut a cord from black cardstock. I stamped the sentiment onto black cardstock with versamark, heat-embossed it with white embossing powder, and trimmed it to a fishtail banner.
Next I stamped the fairies and the wand from Frosty Fairy Friends with versafine and heat-embossed them with clear embossing powder before die-cutting them with the coordinating dies. I adhered a piece of 4″ by 5.25″ vellum over the distress inked panel with vellum adhesive and then built my scene! I adhered the black cord and sentiment with regular adhesive then used foam mounting tape for the lights and fairies. I also added a few sparkling clear sequins and pink gems! Then I went a little nuts with glitter! I added a layer of spectrum noir clear sparkle and nuvo crystal glaze to the lights and then sprinkled them with chunky and prisma glitter. I also added touches of glaze to the fairies and sprinkled them with glitter, too! Finally I added a little glaze around each light bulb with a cheap paintbrush and sprinkled it with prisma glitter to create a sparkly halo! Seriously this card is practically blinding when it catches the light…just the way I like it! 😉

Oh my this is magical. The sparkle must practically put your eyes out in real life.
Your design and coloring is beautiful! I love the idea that the fairies are adding the sparkle to the lights! Adorable!
I don’t know which I love more – your bulb-fixing fairy idea, or the way you executed it! May you never run out of sparkle or glitter!
