Lawn Fawnatics #123 Create a Scene

I don't think it's just me, but time seems to be just flying by. We are looking ahead to the beginning of May! I didn't make many Easter cards this year but I did have a few on my desk that I was able to finish up for the newest Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #123: Create a Scene!

I have a few Lawn Fawn stamp sets that I continually go back to every year. Using Chirpy-Chirp-Chirp, Happy Easter, Reveal Wheel Spring and Scripty Bubble Sentiments I was able to make a few cute Easter scenes.

Thanks for stopping by!

Color Hues #39

Hi there, it's time for a new Color Hues Challenge #39!

I'm super excited this challenge because I was able to choose which colours we are going to use. I picked purple and green for springtime. Whether you make a card is for spring, Easter or anything else I hope you have fun with this duo.

For my card I used the Lots of Leaves stencil from A Colorful Life Designs to create a green panel and a purple panel. I stamped, die cut and Copic coloured the Hero Arts Tulip Bouquet. I cut a circle from the purple panel and popped it up with foam tape then lined it up with the green stenciled panel. The die cut bouquet was placed on top with more foam tape. I stamped and fussy cut the thanks from the Hero Arts Tulip Bouquet set and added it with one more layer of foam tape. This one might require extra postage--lol!

My fussy cutting wasn't perfect but it's a great way to cut just one part of a sentiment.

 I can't wait to see what you make!

Anything goes with Embossing powders

Hi there and thank you for stopping by today for the SNS April Inspiration Hop!

I am hopping over on my Instagram for the hop order and comment on my  Instagram for your chance to win a $50 gift card to the ScrapN' Stamp shop!

The theme this month is anything goes with embossing and we are featuring the new embossing powder set made by Hampton Arts! Although I am hopping on Instagram I wanted to share my process here.

I used all the colours in the embossing set to make three mini slimline thank you cards for the hop today. 

I created three mini slimline card bases that are 6 1/4" x 3 1/4" using the Lawn Fawn Mini Slimline Stackables.

I started off with the Birch Press Design Jumbo Lingo Thanks dies. I embossed the smaller letters of the thanks dies with a rainbow of six colours! I cut the background die with black cardstock and attached the letters.

My mat was cut from the largest die from the Large Lawn Fawn mini slimline dies. I blended a rainbow of distress oxide inks as my background for the jumbo sentiment.

For the second card I cut the largest die from the mini slimline set . I applied embossing ink over the panel and one colour at a time and then heat seat to get a beautiful embossed background for my thanks sentiment.

I created a rainbow distress oxide ink blended background panel when I first started my projects. The word thanks was cut using the Jumbo Lingo Thanks shadow die and then I die cut the shadow once again using the embossed background panel.

To put all these pieces together I inlay the ink blended panel pieces into the embossed background. Other than a bit of foam tape between the cardbase and the embossed panel the card will lay nice and flat for mailing.

The final card was born from the embossed panel, the pieces from when I cut into the panel. I die cut three more white 'thanks' an glued them together and then glued the embossed letters on top!

The white embossed sentiment on black is from the Birch Press Design Lingo Thanks stamp set. The white embossed powder from this set melted beautifully!

Color Hues #38

It's time for Color Hues Challenge #38!

No April Fool's jokes today! 
This challenge our color duo is pink & green.

I took this opportunity to make a card using some new Lawn Fawn products from their spring release. 

The strawberries, stems and leaves were cut from Distress Oxide ink blended panels. I used Sprun Sugar, Kitsch Flamingo, Picked Raspberry, Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn and Rustic Wilderness. Once the pieces were cut I blended a bit of  darkest shades straight on to the die cuts. I arranged the berries on to a Lawn Fawn Fancy Circle using foam tape for dimension. I also added a touch of Avery Elle Shimmer Spray to the die cuts.

I can't wait to see what you do with these colours!
