Pop Up Fairies

YEAH!!!  It's here, more FREE STAMPS on the Sparkle N Sprinkle Blog Hop!!!  They are giving a stamp set away every day for the 3 days of the blog hop, how fun is that?!!! 
We will be sharing ideas with you for 3 days using the Dani’s Garden Umbrella, Dani’s Garden Swing, Fairy Dust, Dream Fairy, and Garden Fairies stamp sets.  All you have to do is visit the blogs listed below and leave a comment on each blog, then your name will be entered once for each blog you comment on for a daily drawing of your choice of any of the 5 stamp sets on cling cushion.
Today I made a stand up card using the Sleeping Fairy I colored her with Copics and added Sparkling Snow glitter to the fairy and mushroom with the Glue Pen.  I also used several other stamps from that stamp set to decorate my card.  
Here are the Stand up card directions:
Peach card stock is cut to 4 1/4 x 11 and scored at 1, 2 3/4, 3 3/4, 5 1/2, 7 1/4, 8 1/4, & 10. Stamp Butterfly Border over card stock with peach ink.
2. Place turquoise card stock on center fold line of the peach card stock and pencil the edges. Using a kraft knife cut out a slot over the score line of about 1/8", so the card stock will slide through the slot.
3. On white card stock cut to 3 x 5 stamp the fairy and sentiment with Black Stazon and color. Layer on turquoise cut to 5 1/4 x 3 1/4.
4. Lay the peach card stock stamp side up and place a strip of red liner tape on the end score panel. With the image panel through the slot stick the bottom of the image panel to the red liner tape lining up the edge of the card stock with the fold. Then attach the other end of the green card stock to the image panel. The panel should slide up and down.

Looks like that fairy has been running around too much in the garden. I bet she was weeding!

Gorgeous card! I know some very active little girls that sometimes need convincing that a rest is important - maybe this fairy would do the trick - and some very busy Mums who need to take a break too! I will hopefully get around to making a stand up card sometime soon.
