CAS(E) This Sketch #227 {Reverse Confetti}

Hello there!  Today, I have a card to share with you for the new CAS(E) this Sketch challenge, using Reverse Confetti products!

Here is sketch #227:


And here is my card!  To create my card, I cut down a piece of watercolor paper to 4" x 5.25" and used my Artist Loft watercolors to paint a bright wash of color in the center of the panel.  When it was dry, I put it in my MISTI, and stamped a sentiment from the Forever in Our Hearts stamp set.  For the image in the bottom right corner, I stamped the clouds from the Take Flight stamp set, and added a few diecut herats from the XOXO Hearts Confetti Cuts die set.

Every Sunrise

I love that even a clean and simple card can be quite full of impact with some bright colors!

Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week: Celebrate and Color Throwdown #448


Hello there!  It's our final day of the Lawn Fawn June inspiration week!  Today, we are showcasing a few different products, but my card today features the Celebrate border die.

I made this card especially for my mom for her birthday last week.  She sews by profession, and she's so great at it! :)

To create my card, I started off by diecutting a piece of Watercolor Wishes and Perfectly Plaid Rainbow patterned papers with the Stitched Rectangles Stackables dies.  I stamped and colored images from the Sewn With Love stamp set, and then diecut everything with the coordinating dies.  I wanted the Celebrate border to look like it was coming unraveled from the sewing machine thread, so I was careful to color the thread image the same color as the Peacock cardstock that I used to diecut the border.  I popped everything up with foam tape, and stamped a sentiment from the Sewn with Love stamp set in Peacock ink just above the Celebrate border diecut to complete the sentiment.  I mounted the panel on a Zig Zag Rectangle Stackable diecut, and then mounted it on a Peacock card base with foam tape.  To finish things off, I added accents with a white gel pen.

I used the new Color Throwdown Challenge color combo for this card.  Challenge #448 starts today!  I hope you will play along... it's a fun one! :)

Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week: Pretty Poppies


Hello there!  Today marks day 4 of Lawn Fawn inspiration week!!  Today, the team is showcasing the Pretty Poppies stand alone dies!

To create my card, I started off by watercoloring wide stripes onto a piece of watercolor paper using Hickory Smoke distress ink.  When the panel was dry, I diecut it once with the Outside In Stitched Rectangles Stackables, and again with the Outside In Circles Stackables.  I diecut the Poppies from Ballet Slippers cardstock and inked the edges with Picked Raspberry distress ink, then cut the leaves from Cilantro cardstock and inked the edges with Fresh Cut Grass ink.  I glued the leaves down with a glue pen, and popped each layer of the poppy up with foam tape,  I stamped a sentiment from Happy Happy Happy , diecut it with the coordinating dies, and added a scattering of grey sequins before mounting the panel up on a Narwhal cardstock base.

Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week: Aloha


Hello there!  Welcome to day 3 of Lawn Fawn June inspiration week!  Today, we are showcasing the Aloha stamp set and Scripty Aloha die.

I create my card, I started off by diecutting a piece of watercolor paper with the Outside In Stitched Rectangles dies.  I used distress inks in Peacock Feathers and Cracked Pistachio to watercolor the bottom right side of the panel.  I diecut a hill with the Simple Stitched Hillside Borders out of white cardstock, along with a white palm tree using the Palm Trees dies.  I adhered the hill and palm tree trunk with a glue pen, then popped up the palm leaves up with foam tape.  For the sentiment, I diecut the Scripty Aloha three times from Peacock cardstock and once from white cardstock.  I layered them all together with a glue pen and then glued the 3D sentiment to the panel.  I added a scattering of iridescent sequins then popped the panel up on a white card base with foam tape.

Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week: Push Here



Hello there!  It's day 2 of Lawn Fawn June Inspiration Week, and today, the team is showcasing the Push Here stamp set and coordinating dies!  Push Here is perfect for all of your interactive cards!

For my project today, I created a combination card/gift card holder.  I started off with a landscape card base cut from Ballet Slippers cardstock.  I used papers from the Let's Polka Mon Amie paper pad, and cut them using the Dotted Rectangles Stackables dies.  I stamped and colored images from the Here's the Scoop stamp set, then fussy cut them with scissors.  I arranged them on my patterned paper panel, then created a custom sentiment using a partial sentiment from Baked With Love and the Scripty Sweet dies.  I mounted that panel on a Zig Zag Rectangle diecut, then popped it up on the pink card base with foam tape.

Sweet Wishes

On the inside of the card, I used more of the Let's Polka Mon Amie papers, diecut using the Dotted Rectangles Stackables again.  I used the largest Lift the Flap dies to cut a flap in the center of the panel, and decorated it with more images from Here's the Scoop.  I used the Push Here stamp set to stamp a little arrow and sentiment where the flap opens, and stamped and colored the heart from that set, which I diecut and popped up with foam tape.

Sweet Wishes

Opening the flap reveals a gift card for sweet treats! :)  The gift card is held in place using the Simple Gift Card Slots die.

Sweet Wishes

I hope you enjoyed my project today!  Be sure to visit the Lawn Fawn blog to see lots more inspiration from the design team!  Stop back by tomorrow as I have another project to share with you!

Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week: Plane and Simple



Hello there! It's that time again!  Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week has begun!  Today, the design team is showcasing the adorable Plane and Simple stamp set and Stitched Trails die set.

To create my card, I started off by diecutting a piece of watercolor paper with the largest of the new Outside In Stitched Rectangles.  I used post-it tape to mask off a strip about 1/3 of the way down the panel.  I used distress inks in blues and greens to ink a background, then added some splatters of clean clear water and Peacock Feathers distress ink.  I stamped and colored images from Plane and Simple, then before popping them up with foam tape, I used the Stitched Trails dies to add a heart shaped flight trail on the watercolored area, and another die from the same die set to add some interest under that area.  I popped up the plane and clouds, and stamped a sentiment from the Plane and Simple set to finish off my card, then mounted it to a Peacock cardstock base.

You're My Universe {Paper Smooches}


Hello there!  Today, I have a card to share with you for the Paper Smooches June Challenge!  The theme this month is Men.



Even though I have a husband and am a mom to two amazing boys, masculine cards are always hard for me.  I am not sure why that is... but when I saw the theme for this month's challenge, I knew I had to play along because I don't have nearly enough boy cards on hand.

I pulled out one of my favorite Paper Smooches stamp sets, Space Cadet.  I started off by ink blending a background using Peacock Feathers, Lucky Clover, Mermaid Lagoon, Chipped Sapphire and Dusty Concord distress inks.  I splattered on some clean clear water to bleach out some areas, then added white spatters with watered down acrylic paint.  I stamped and colored images from the Space Cadet stamp set, then diecut them with the coordinating dies.  To create the moon, I diecut a circle from white cardstock, then used a stencil from the Papertrey Ink Out of This World mini kit to add the fun pattern with Pumice Stone distress ink.  I adhered the moon down with a glue pen, and popped everything else with foam tape.  I used the Space dies to diecut some white stars for the sky, then stamped a sentiment from the Space Cadet stamp set on a strip of white cardstock.  To finish things off, I added some white gel pen accents, and popped the panel up on a white card base with foam tape.

You're My Universe

That's all for me today!  Thanks so much for stopping by! :)
