Welcome to Day 1 of our Previews of the
Today we introduce you to the adorable “Cupcake Fairy”, and I’m sure you will agree that the combination of a cupcake and a fairy is just gorgeous!
I tried something different with this image and did some paper piecing on the cupcake.
The way I print out digital images is that I print the image on copy paper until I get the size right. Then I cut out a piece of cardstock (I use Stampin’ Up!’s Whisper White) the size I want to cover the image (and extra for die cutting if necessary). I attach this cardstock over the image on the copy paper using a repositionable adhesive (I use Dotto by Stampin’ Up!), then I feed it back through the printer. This method works well for attaching small bits of patterned paper to certain parts of the image to use in paper piecing – no waste!
I also made an extra set of wings in velum which I sponged with shimmer paint and attached. I made a template for the wings using copy paper then cut out in velum so no printer lines would show.
Now I also have a mystery CANDY on offer during these previews. One lucky commenter will win 1 of the gorgeous new “Once Upon A Time” images (in rubber) … I will surprise you with which one. To go into the draw you just need to leave a comment for any of my “Once Upon A Time” preview posts ... easy!!!
This candy will run from 18th February through 24th February and I'll announce the winner (and the stamp they have won) sometime on the 25th February. Good Luck!!
