You're A Legend with Christy

Hey friends! It's Christy here with another card I made for our current Sketch Challenge. Today is the last day to enter, so if you haven't already, hopefully this inspiration will push you over the edge! Did you know that sketches are open to interpretation? You can flip them upside down or on their side or swap out one shape for another.

For my card, I replaced the two diagonal stripes with a set of footprints from Lawn Fawn's Lovable Legends.  I used Doe ink to stamp them, and JalapeƱo and Noble Fir for the trees. I pulled out the old classic Bannerific to stamp my sentiment in, and colored Bigfoot with Copic markers. Distress Inks set the stage for the background panel and a little water splatter gave it some fun texture.

I hope you like it! Hurry up and post your own projects before the inlinkz closes tonight. Happy crafting!

Jellyfish Greetings

Good morning! Roxanne here today with honestly one of my favorite cards I've created recently. I don't say that often, but I just love this one. I just bought this set and I couldn't wait to use it. I love the little jellyfish so much. Let's get started!

I knew I wanted to use my jellyfish image from the So Jelly set, so I started off by creating my blue water background. I used several inks and sponges and blended it until it was the color I desired. Seriously, my blue fingers and thumb for a day were totally worth the result!

Now, I actually made a bit of a mistake which turned out to be a neat look since this is a water scene after all. My ink that I had blended wasn't quite dry when I stamped on the bubbles from the same set in Versamark. I applied my white embossing powder and some of the powder around the bubbles actually stuck to the damp ink blended background as you can see. I didn't bother trying to wipe it off because I loved the way that looked! I heat embossed away and as you can see, it looks like some smaller bubbles. I like when a mistake turns out to look intentional! Just a tip...make sure your ink blended background is dry BEFORE you apply your embossing powder. Or, use that look to your advantage like I did.

For my jellyfish, I stamped 3 of them onto my premium white cardstock (all products used listed at the bottom of the blog post) in Tuxedo Black ink and I colored them each a slightly different color using my Spectrum Noir Markers and trimmed them out by hand. I added a light gray outline around them and left just a hair of white around that when trimming them out.

The sentiment is from the Love You A Latte set and I stamped that onto white cardstock I cut using the Stitched Labels Lawn Cuts. I added a simple rhinestone pearl to the dot of the "i".

To make that blue background I worked so hard to blend pop off the card, I decided to use an embossed black panel behind it. The panel looks like bubbles reminiscent of the water bubbles, so I thought it was perfect.

I have a simple white cardstock card base trimmed and scored to 4.25x5.5. I then adhered the embossed blak panel to the card base.

I stuck the jellyfish on with some more foam adhesive, leaving one off the edge of the blended panel. I flicked on some white Mister Huey's Color Mist all over to look like more bubbles under the water. I grabbed some white and turquoise twine and wrapped that around the bottom of the card three times and stuck my sentiment label on top of that off to the left with some foam adhesive. Then I used more foam adhesive to adhere my water background to the black.

And there you have it! A sweet little card filled with adorable little jellyfish! Thanks for checkout my project this month and I'll see you again next month. Happy crafting.

Loads of Birthday Fun!

Hello there!  Audrey here! Today I have a fun card to share with you that mixes and matches a bunch of my favorite Lawn Fawn stamp sets!

To start my card, I diecut a piece of Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor paper with the largest die in the Large Stitched Rectangles Stackables die set. I challenged myself to use a color combo that seems to be everywhere lately - Mint and Coral.  Truth by told, I don't love these colors (I'm probably the only one on the planet that feels this way LOL!), which is why I challenged myself.  I watercolored a background with Cracked Pistachio and Pumice Stone distress inks.  A while back, I saw a polka dot washer and dryer on Pinterest, and I couldn't wait to recreate it by paper piecing the washer from the Loads of Fun stamp set with some Lawn Fawn patterned paper!  I stamped and colored a bunch of other images from that set and die cut them with the coordinating dies.  Inspired by one of the sentiments in the stamp set, I decided to create a birthday card, and pulled out my Party Animal stamp set, and I will never turn down the opportunity to use the Baaah Humbug sheep.  He's the cutest!  I played around with placement, and adhered some pieces with a glue pen, and others popped up with foam tape.  Finally, I glued the panel to a white card base.

Loads of Birthday Fun!

I am quite happy with how this turned out.  I sure to love mixing and matching my Lawn Fawn stamps, especially when it's an unlikely combination.  Stretching your stamps = more bang for your buck!

Hope you like!  That's all for me today!  Thanks for stopping by! :)
