Happy Friday crafting friends and welcome to my Fairy Stamper Friday Share.
I hope you all had many Blessings to be thankful for, and that you had a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration with family and friends.
Did you catch the International Stamps sale at Fairy Stamper last weekend? I always purchase more than my fair share during these sales 😀 If you didn't, no worries. Fairy Stamper has these sales every so often so you can catch it next time. The best way to know about these sales is to subscribe to their newsletter HERE.

Hubby and I have been married for 36 years - we celebrated our anniversary a couple of days ago.
For this occasion, and using a few stamps purchased at one of the International Stamps sales events, I made this card for hubby.
I began by creating the background using the Burst Stencil (Tim Holtz) and the Waves Stencil (Stampendous).
Next I stamped and die cut the little otters and other tiny embellishments that come in the set. I used Memento ink for this because I find it is one of the few inks that works really well with copic markers. Once all the bits and pieces were coloured, I arranged them on the card using foam dots on some to add a little dimension. It looked a little bare, so I used a little seaweed and a bit of coral to fill in the scene.
I used the same materials in the same way to create a little scene on the inside, leaving plenty of space to write my message. As a finishing touch, I added glassy accents to the heart and the shells. For the otters' eyes, I used a black Glaze pen.
Here is the list of supplies I used. I have linked some to the Fairy Stamper store. Some will not show up in the store right now, because like I mentioned above, they were purchased during an International Stamp sales event.
Fairy Hugs Stamps - Ivy Seaweed
Heffy Doodle - Otter Side (Stamps & Dies) (International Stamp Sale)
Marianne Designs - Coral (International Stamp Sale)
Lea'bilities - Swan Family (dragonfly) (International Stamp Sale)
Memento Ink - Tuxedo Black (currently out of stock, but any dye ink will do)
