Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge 76 - 3 or more different types of flowers with Flower Fairy

Hi everybody,

Maybe you have already seen it yesterday on the Wild Orchid Crafts blog, I am extremely proud to announce that I am the new member of their design team. I absolutely LOVE their flowers and their ribbon and, while I am extremely happy with the teams I am on at the moment and really didn't want any more teams to add to the list, this was the only team that was still on my wishlist but I was absolutely sure it would stay a dream. Bev Rochester however made my year by asking me if I wanted to join and this was one team I didn't have to think about for a second :). So a HUGE thank you to Wild Orchid Crafts and especially to Bev Rochester for having me!

Today is the start of a new challenge over at the Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge blog and the challenge is "3 or more different types of flowers". Since the WOC flower selection holds a wide range of different flowers not that difficult. This is the project I created as a sample for this new challenge:
The adorable fairy is one of the Flower Fairies by Wee Stamps (available as digital images HERE and as rubber stamps HERE). This isn't a card but a Slip Cover box. You may remember I made two of these before HERE. The template is by My Time Made Easy and I think these boxes are perfect for little gifts.

The Wild Orchid Crafts products I used are:
Ivory Open Roses 20mm
Mixed Purple/Lilac Tone Trellis Roses 35mm
Purple/Lilac Tone Mulberry Paper Cherry Blossom Flowers
White Sweetheart Blossom Flowers
Lilac Sweetheart Blossom Flowers
12mm Gold Satin Ribbon

The gorgeous designpaper I used is Maja Designs Vintage Spring. I have distressed with Tea Dye distress ink and I have embossed some swirls with golden embossing powder.
This is the box open. I'm not sure what I'm going to put in there yet or who I'm going to give this to but it's always handy to have some of these gift wraps around.
And a close up of the fairy. As always colored with my Copic Markers and completely 3D paper pieced.
And the little pieces :).

I hope you enjoyed my little box and will give the new Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge a try. See you back soon!!

  11. Hi Mariska I have been trying to follow your tutorial in the Whimsy magazine using Suzi with Bunny (I guess I did pick a detailed stamp to start with but I had that stamp so it is easier to follow exactly) and I would like to know the weight of paper you use for your paper piecing. Also do you use any digi stamps for this technique
    thank you

  17. Following readinging this article, I needed to remark on your part of Washington, DC.

    I concur with all of the activites and employment opportunties, etc that the location needs to provide.
    But I'd need to disagree that "there are slightly much more females than guys in Washington, D.C., but approximately 33% on the populace is one." Slightly is definitely an understatement! There are Considerably more girls than men, about 7-8 girls more than males. Taking into consideration the population's ethnic track record, relationship choices and sexualty, these stats differ.
    Several social companies, meetups, and clubs host social and
    cultural occasions, like relationship occasions that constantly are in
    require of much more guys. And on account of there be more males than women, numerous of them wish to proceed to be one and take pleasure in
    the many solitary ladies in the region instead of settling down to have a family members.
    I invite you to definitely get a movie digicam to the streets of DC and interview the females and find out
    what type of feedback you receive contradictory to your stats.
