Mandie's Thank You Fairy Much!

Ladies, I am pleased to say that the blog is back and better than ever! I know, I know, we were only gone for about three days, but I missed you guys! It's just not the same for me when we don't get to have these little daily talks. Plus, (as life has a way of getting IN THE WAY) this is as close to my craft room as I have gotten in awhile! My fellow Design Team members keep giving me these amazing ideas and I can't wait to put them to good use!

Today, Mandie is sharing a super cute take on Thank You notes that is sure to leave you with a smile on your face. What I like best about this design is that it can easily be coordinated to any color palette. All you have to do is change the color of her dress, and you are ready to go! So get those pencils out to take some notes, because Mandie is going to show us how to crank out the cards!

Take it away Mandie!

After Christmas we all have a ton of "Thank You's" to say so why not send a beautiful handmade card to say it! As soon as I saw my new Pink Cat Studio Enchanted Lily #1 Stamp Set from Cutter's Creek I knew it would be perfect to make some beautiful Thank You Cards from my daughters!

I began by making a 6" x 6" card base from white cardstock. Then I cut my sheet of patterned paper to 5 3/4" x 5 3/4". Next I adhered my ribbon to my patterned paper with Scor-Tape. Then I adhered this to my base with more Scor-Tape.

Next I cut a 3" circle from my Simply Smooth Cardstock with my Plantin Schoolbook Cricut cartridge. Then I cut a 4" blackout clover from teal cardstock with my Storybook Cricut Cartrige. I stamped my fairy onto the circle with my black
Staz-on ink.

Next I colored in my fairy. I used Copics for the flesh, E00 and E11, and rosy cheeks, R20, and was thrilled with the results! Since I am just starting my Copic collection I used purple, teal, green and yellow markers from my stash to color the rest of her.

Next I used a yellow Twinkle Jewel from the Summer colors to highlight the center of her flower wand, and added Diamond Stickles to the edge of her wings for some fairy sparkle. Then I adhered the circle into the center of the clover using my Tombo Mono Adhesive. In the
center of each petal I ahered Ocean colored Twinkle Jewels. I used foam tape to adhere my image to the front of my card. Last I stamped "Thanks fairy much!" on a scrap of white paper and adhered it to a scrap of the teal. I accented the word "fairy" with a little glitter with my Sakura Jelly Roll Stardust Glitter Pens. I adhered this to the lower right corner of my patterned paper and added a couple more Ocean Twinkle Jewels as well.

Mandie has done a fantastic job putting together this beautiful card! Let's all take a minute to show her the love!

All of the products used to make Mandie's Thank You Fairy Much can be purchased from Cutters Creek!


  1. Mandie - this is AWESOME - so sweet and yet so easy! I think I can even do this! I really wanted this stamp too - now I'm kicking myself for not getting her! UGH!! Mebbe my Lily & Billy set has something equally as universal...hmmm.....

  2. Absolutely Adorable!

    I own this same set and LOVE all the images! I have colored this Lily in a couple different colored outfits and she always comes out cute as can be.

    For anyone who has not tried this Pink Cat Images, I highly recommend them and LOVE coloring them with my Copics!
