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!

Faerie Song Art Stamps has just introduced a new sheet of Faeries that are really cute and they’re in a holiday theme! If you like to color, these are for you. The text used on the greetings is so fanciful and fun! Check it out…

Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) are a fantastic way to use up pieces of paper and embellishments. Oh – and of course to use stamps on them! I’ve joined a couple swaps for ATCs and have a monthly ATC club that I belong to, so today was “make the ATCs day”. All of them are themed and have their own personality. Check them out:

Artist Trading Cards (ATC’s) are simple and totally fun pieces of art. You can start from a 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ piece of paper or a stamp a whole sheet then cut it to size, it’s really up to you. At first you may think that it’s really hard to work on that size, but once you get into it, it’s really addicting! You’ll find all sorts of stamped images that fit really well onto this size as you can see below.

Faerie Song Art Stamps is a great source for fantasy images! Check out my little Copic colored faeries! Patterned paper is DCWV.

I really like Stampin’ Up! stamps, but mounted on the blocks just takes up too much space. So, I pull the rubber from the sticky pad and put them on EZ Mount cling for use with acrylic blocks. That ends up leaving many very nice empty wood blocks with no use. Well, I have created a fun little project using those blocks! Visit Faerie Song Art Stamps for a full view of the project, but here’s the result:

crackle painted wood blocks with fairy embellishments! The fairies are from Heather at Faerie Song and I stamped them on acetate here then colored them using Glaze Pens from Sakura. Such a fun project and go see Heather to get some fairies of your own!
