Whispering Woods paper collection designed by Sue Smyth.




Use the Fairy Dell 12x12” scrapbooking paper as background. 

Leafy Borders clear stamp set Stamp the leaf and flowers border stamps across the top of the background paper.  Apply texture paste mixed with Mica powder – Forest through the branches in the Forest Whisper A4 stencil, allow to dry.

Add lavender paint splatters over the background page.

Cover an White Cardstock A4 with leaf stamp from Celebrate Nature clear stamp set.  Spray the stamped cardstock using Forest Mica powder with water, allow to dry.  Fussy cut the stamped images.



Fussy cut the flowers from the Magnolia 12x12” scrapbooking paper and adhere the cut shapes around the top of the page along with the coloured leaf shapes.



    Cut a length of muslin cloth, distress the edges of the cloth to loosen the threads.  Adhere the muslin on three corners with matt medium. 

Run the Forest Favourites metal die through the die cut machine using the Imagery 12x12” scrapbooking paper (3-4 cuts)

Adhere (spot glue) the grass die cut shapes along the bottom of the page, arrange the gnomes, snail and mushrooms and adhere these between the grass. 



Mix Rosewood Mica powder into texture paste, apply paste through the Fairy Wings A5 stencil onto White Cardstock A4 .  While still wet dust over the stencilled image with more Rosewood Mica powder (like you were adding embossing powder, then tap off excess onto paper).  Fussy cut the textured wings from the card (1 piece).




Run the Fairy Magic - Metal Die through die-cut machine using silver foil card for wings (3) and the fairy using lavender foil card.  Assemble the fairies using x-press it double sided tape 6mm.



Fussy cut several bugs (beetles and butterflies), mushrooms, gnomes snail etc from the Imagery 12x12” scrapbooking paper.

Adhere the beetles and butterflies around the page and onto the muslin. 



Adhere sequins around the page.  Add some to the fairies also.



Add the sentiment in black pen, highlight the words in lavender pen also.

I hope this project has inspired you to take advantage of this beautiful new collection and I look forward to seeing what you are able to create using this collection.

Until next time ... happy creating1
