Faerie Song Art Stamps

It’s almost 1/2 way through the year and here’s my first Christmas card! Usually I try to make a couple holiday cards every month, but I haven’t been able to do that this year. I’ll just have to do a marathon session in July or whenever I can get some time to crank out some cards. I love making holiday cards, so it shouldn’t be difficult!

Don’t forget this week’s challenge at Michelle Perkett’s Challenge blog – Flowers Galore!

Guess what? Another great sheet of rubber from Heather at Faerie Song Art Stamps!

This time, we’re going under the sea to those mythical mermaid creatures. Gretchen Raisch-Baskin is the artist that has added her own special touch to Magical Mermaids, the 8 1/2″ x 11″ sheet of red rubber stamps. I had a lot of fun using Copics markers to color in the details of the ocean and mermaids. It was a great opportunity to practice blending, which you’ll probably be able to tell here and there.

Take a look and I hope you like them!

Nidlongdir is a Magic Fairy Realm beautifully illustrated by Marianne Mathiasen and now brought to you in red rubber stamps! Heather at Faerie Song Art Stamps has just introduced an 8 1/2″ x 11″ sheet of rubber images drawn by Marianne.

You can find the images that I’ve used below on that sheet, available on Heather’s web site, Faerie Song Art Stamps.

I hope you like the samples! Enjoy!

All images are colored with Copics Markers.

I thought the House Mouse stamps were super cute, but these Mouserkins are absolutely adorable! I had a great chance to do some more coloring with the Copics. I’m doing more blending than ever before. In doing that, I definitely have some holes in my Copic collection. Funny how it doesn’t appear until you really start using them! I use the Warm and Cool Grays often – for shadowing and outlining. It gives the image such a great look! Well then you have the colors too – wowser! I love the light colors because they can brighten up a darker tone in two shakes. I can’t wait to get more…

Take a look at the newest cards using the Mouserkins from Faerie Song Art Stamps:

I just got this new sheet of stamps from Heather at Faerie Song Art Stamps. It’s called Mouser-kins! Aren’t they cute?? I’m part way through the sheet trying out each image, so here’s what I have so far.

All the cards use Prism Paper, Spellbinders dies, Copic markers, Ranger inks and P K Glitz Glitter. I’ve also used the CPS144 sketch and some Mojo Monday sketches as a starting point for the card designs.


Glitter Glitz color is Eggplant


Glitter Glitz color is Lemonade


Glitter Glitz color is Crystal


Glitter Glitz color is Pink

If you like the sheet as much as I do, Heather has it on special through Nov 30, so take advantage and order it now!
