Try a New Technique with StampFairy

Good morning. I hope that you all had a wonderful and sunny weekend. The weather here has been beautiful, perfect for swimming and outdoor concerts which is what I was doing this weekend. Unfortunately all good things must come to an end and today is the start of another work week.

Today is also the start of another StampFairy Challenge and this week we would like for you to show us something that you have made using a new technique.


For my card this week I have chosen to make a springfold card. I first saw this technique a few weeks back and had been wanting to try it so this challenge gave me the perfect excuse to give it a go. If any of you would like to give it a try you can do so by following the tutorial that I found here.

For this card, I have pulled out an image with my favorite snowman George. He has been coloured with Copics and accented with Stickles and liquid applique before I cut him out using my Spellbinders dies. The designer papers are from MME and Cosmo Cricket. I have kept the card simple as I felt that the design of the card already provided enough extra detail.

I hope that you will join us for our challenge. Be sure to tell us in your post what new technique you have used. Before you head off to start crafting be sure to stop by the StampFairy Challenge blog and see the gorgeous creations from the rest of the team.

This card will be entered into the following challenges:
