You're Fintastic, Best Fishes

Hey everyone! Christy here. I'm super excited to be featured on the blog today with another card for our Rainbow Challenge! A friend from my writer's group is moving away, so I decided to make a tri-fold card with a peek-a-boo window, depicting a fish transitioning from a tank into the ocean.


I combined images from Lawn Fawn's Fantastic Friends with a few from Mermaid For You for a little more variety. These sets play so nicely together. I created my background by drawing waves on some Bristol Smooth Surface paper using my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens, then watercolored right over top and flicked on additional clean water for a bubble effect. I also watercolored my images in a rainbow of colors to fit our challenge.


I then glued my Bristol to the second panel of my tri-fold card and stamped a sentiment on the center panel, leaving plenty of white space for the entire group to write their messages. It was a big hit at her Going Away Party this week, and she said she's going to keep it up on her desk in her new home to remember us all by.


Our challenge ends this evening, so still have a few hours to enter if you haven't had a chance yet. I can't wait to see all your gorgeous rainbow colored projects! The winner will receive a FREE stamp set of their choice from Lawn Fawn! Definitely a great incentive.



Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Flamingo Love

Good morning! It's Roxanne here this morning to show you a summery card full of love. Who doesn't just love crafting with summer colors?? Let's get to it.

I got this little Lawn Fawn set called Flamingo Together. I tell ya, the sentiments are brilliant and simple, but oh so cute. Especially this one. I'll just show ya!


Right?! Isn't that funny and cute and full o' love? Told you. 

For the background, I used some watercolor cardstock (I may be slightly addicted to using it), used distress inks and watercolor markers for the sky and sand with a lot of water and then distressed the edges. I wanted a simple beachy looking scene to place the palm trees in the background. I colored the flamingos, fussy cut them (you can certainly purchase the coordinating dies) as well as the little heart in between them and adhered them down using some foam adhesive to give it dimension. 


I stamped the sentiment in the upper right top corner and added a pearl to the dot of the "i" in flamin-go. Totally simple but adorable.  


Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!

Guys - this card is showstopping!!! The silhouetted images of the two bears from Dad + Me against that GORGEOUS background! The sky is breathtaking, and I LOOOOVE the tiny, tiny stars!! And that beautiful heat embossed sentiment just finishes it all off! 


This alpaca on vacation is FREAKING awesome!!! Ha!! He lost his scarf from the Winter Alpaca stamp set and added some glasses and he's ready for the beach!  And again - that background is TO DIE FOR!! I LOVE this!!


Oh, this slider card is SO COOL! I am in LOVE with the fact that it looks like the crayon is coloring with the slider dies!! What a GREAT idea! And there's nothing I love more in the world than this color combination! That cute chick from the Chirpy Chirp Chirp just makes the card! 


This card literally stopped me in my tracks! What an AMAZING idea and creation with the Fairy Friends stamp set! Combining that set with the Little Bundle stamp set was pure genius! And the coloring!! Just look at the wings - they're so beautiful!! 


Oh, this sweet card is SO ADORABLE!! I am in love with that raccoon couple from the Holiday Party Animal stamp set! That little tie and bow just makes them so cute! This is one of the sweetest ways to use the Baked with Love stamp set - what a great story this card tells!
