Reverse Confetti and Color Throwdown #431


Hello there!  Today, I have a card to share with you using goodies from Reverse Confetti for the newest Color Throwdown Challenge - #431.  Here is the color scheme:


And here is my card...

To create my card, I started off by ink blending distress ink onto a piece of watercolor paper then splattering it with water to bleach out some of the spots.  I added a strip of patterned paper from the Fright Night paper pad to the bottom of the panel.   I stamped and colored images from the Monkey Business stamp set, and then diecut them with the coordinating Monkey Business Confetti Cuts.  I popped everything up with foam tape, and added white gel pen accents to the images.  To fill the space at the top of the card and make it even more festive, I added to of the Star Garland Confetti cuts diecut from white cardstock, and to finish things off, I added a scattering of iridescent sequins and a sentiment from Monkey Business, stamped on a hand cut banner before mounting the panel on a Royal Purple cardstock base.

I just love this color scheme! :)

Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week - How You Bean?

Hello there!  Today I have a card to share with you using the adorable new How Have You Bean from Lawn Fawn! This set and coordinating shaker dies are perfect for Easter, but great for so many other occasions too!  Today though, I have Easter in mind.

To create my card, I started off by watercoloring a background which I then diecut with the Dotted Rectangles Stackables dies.  I stamped and colored images from the How Have You Bean stamp set, along with the cute litttle chicks from Chirpy-Chirp-Chirp. I used the How You Bean Shaker Add-on dies for extra dimension. I added a strip of patterned paper from the new Perfectly Plaid Rainbow 6x6 paper pad, and popped the jar up on foam tape.  I did the same with the chicks, added some accents with a white gel pen, and stamped a sentiment from Egg-stra Special Easter.  I backed the panel with a Zig Zag Rectangle Stackable die cut from the new Raspberry cardstock, and mounted it to a white card base.

Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week - Slide on Over Circles


Hello there!  Happy Monday!  Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week is in full swing, and today, I have a card to share with you  using the new Slide On Over Circles die set, along with the Out of This World stamp set that was showcased yesterday.

To create my card, I first splattered a piece of Blue Jay cardstock with metallic gold watercolor.  When I was dry, I used one half for a card base, and diecut another rectangle with the Dotted Recrangles Stackables.  From that rectangle, I diecut the middle sized Slide On Over Circle. On the bottom of that panel, I added three layers of Puffy Cloud Borders to the bottom of the panel, adhering them only on the sides and bottom so that the spaceship could move freely around the circle. I stamped, colored and diecut images from Out Of This World, and arranged them, popping each one up with foam tape.  I stamped a sentiment from the same set on to a stamped banner from the Bannerific stamp set and diecut it with coordinating dies before popping it up with foam tape.  To finish things off, I added accents with a white  gel pen

Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week - Out of This World and Starry Skies



Hello there!  Today, the Lawn Fawn team is highlighting another favorite of mine from this release, Out of this World and the coordinating Starry Skies dies!  I shared this card a few weeks ago on my blog when it was featured in the CHA trade show booth, but in case you missed it, I wanted to share it again.  

Here are the instructions I shared on how I created my card:


To create my card, I watercolored a night sky with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens.  When it was dry, I diecut it with the Dotted Rectangles Stackables.  I stamped, colored, and diecut the adorable little space man and planets from the Out Of This World stamp set, along with my favorite banner from the Bannertastic stamp set.  Then I stamped a sentiment from Out of this World in the banner.  Before I arranged the pieces on the watercolor background, I  used the Starry Skies die set to add a scattering of stars to opposite corners of the watercolor piece, and then diecut two shooting stars, also from the Starry Skies die set.  Then I popped the pieces up with foam tape.  I adhered the watercolor piece to a diecut Zig Zag Rectangle cut from white cardstock and then popped it up on a white card base.  I added some accents with a white gel pen, and though you can't really tell in the photo, I colored in the stars with the Sakura Startdust gelly roll pen.

Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week - Scalloped Pop Up Card Box


Hello there!  Today, I have a SUPER fun post to share with you, as Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week continues!  The team is showcasing the new Scalloped Pop Up Card Box.  It is genius!  You simply diecut two pieces using the largest die from the set, and adhere them together, and then diecut as many insert pieces as you'd like for your box, and build from there.  The possibilities are endless with this one!

For my project today, I created an Easter card.  I diecut the box from my favorite pattern from the Perfectly Plaid Rainbow patterned papers, then cut two inserts.  I used one of the stitched rectangles from the die set to create the sky in my scene, cut from some Watercolor Wishes patterned paper.  Then, I added some snippets of grass.  There are three layers of grass... one on each insert and one along the back side of the box along the stitched rectangle.  I stamped, colored and diecut images from Eggstra Special Easter .  I love how much dimension you get with this boxes, and you don't even have to use foam tape! Everything is adhered with a glue pen to the inserts inside the box, and it all folds completely flat to fit in an A2 size envelope.  On the front flap of the box, I diecut another piece of Watercolor Wishes patterned paper, and stamped a sentiment from the new Hoppy Easter stamp set that is coming out with this new release.

Pop Up Box

I can't wait to create more of these boxes! SO MUCH FUN!!

Be sure to check out the Lawn Fawn blog for lots more inspiration from the design team, and come back tomorrow for more fun!

Reverse Confetti and Color Throwdown #430


Hello there!  I have a card to share with you using Reverse Confetti goodies!  I will be entering this in the current Color Throwdown Challenge!



And here is my card...

To create this card, I started off with a piece of white cardstock.  I used Iced Aqua ink and the Pointed Out stencil to create a patterned background.  I stamped, colored and diecut the adorable little bear from the Bear Hugs stamp set.  To ground him, I added a piece of patterned paper from the True Love 6x6 paper pad.  I popped him up with some foam tape, and stamped a sentiment from the A Friend Like You stamp set.  To finish things off, I added a scattering of little wooden stars.

Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week - Elphie Selfie


Hello there!  It's here! Lawn Fawn Spring 2017 release week is in full swing!  Today, the team is highlighting one of my favorites of the new release, Elphie Selfie!

To create my card, I started off by diecutting the largest of the Dotted Circle Stackables from watercolor paper.  I used an ink blending tool and blue and green ink to create a background for my scene.  I stamped and colored images from Elphie Selfie with copic markers, along with a banner from the new Bannertastic stamp set, and I stamped a sentiment from the new Happy Happy Happy stamp set on the banner.  I backed the dotted circle with a new Zig Zag Circle diecut cut from the new Raspberry cardstock (oh my goodness, such an amazing pink!)  I arranged the pieces on my circle, and popped everything up with foam tape.  I also added a few clouds to the sky using the smallest cloud from the Simple Puffy Clouds die set.  When my scene was finished, I popped the circle up in the center of a white A2 sized card base.
