Garden Friends - Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #31


Hey friends! Happy Monday. Today I'm excited to bring you another Lawn Fawnatics Challenge, and this one is definitely a good fit for the season.


I started out with Gleeful Gardens and added in a few images from Fairy Friends and the bee from Bugs & Kisses. I colored them all with Copic markers and trimmed them out with the matching dies.

To create a focal panel, I used the Stitched Journaling Card die to trim out some pale aqua cardstock and the Grassy Border die to cut out two different shades of green. I added the darker one in the background and popped the lighter one up with foam tape to give the scene some depth.


Then I added in my images, staggering them behind both grassy borders to continue that look of dimension, even though they are all adhered flat to the panel. Then I popped up my snails and bees with foam tape to draw your eye and give them the focus.

I layered my patterned papers on my card and added my focal panel on top with more foam tape. I adhered a sentiment trimmed out with an Everyday Sentiments Banner. As a final touch I dabbed on a little bit of Stickles here and there for some sparkle and shine.



I also did some stamping on the inside of the card, which you can check out in the video. Click the YouTube icon to watch it there in HD and don't forget to like and subscribe! Your support means the world.

Scuba Diver's Delight - Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #30


Hey friends! Welcome to Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #30! This round is all about card for guys! I decided to make a card inspired by my brother, who is a scuba diving instructor, using the new You Are Sublime stamp set. So much fun!


To really set the scene, I also pulled in images from Mermaid For You and Fintastic Friends. I colored them with Copic markers and trimmed them out with the matching dies. Then I created a Distress Inked background for my scuba diver and sea creatures to live in. I used Antique Linen, Blueprint Sketch, Lucky Clover, and Peacock Feathers, then sprinkled on a bit of water to give it a mottled effect to look like bubbles.


I adhered my focal panel to my Blue Jay card base, then added my images with a combination of liquid glue and foam tape. I stamped a sentiment and a few extra images on the inside with Deep Sea ink, which you can check out in the video. As a finishing touch, I added a little Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Sparkle Pen to the fish for a bit of shimmer.

Breathe Rainbows Blog Hop!


Hey friends! Welcome to the Butterfly Reflections Ink Blog Hop! Today we're showcasing a brand-new exclusive set, Breathe Rainbows, a collab with artist Kimma Parish. Aren't these images just darling? The whole set is filled with cheeky cuteness!


I stamped and colored my images with Copics, then fussy cut them out so that I could pop them up with foam tape for some added dimension. For my focal panel, I cut out pale blue and pale gray cardstock with the Reverse Confetti Scalloped Squares for a two-toned effect. Then I layered that over some Dear Lizzy Stay Colorful 6x6 patterned papers.


As a finishing touch, I added a sprinkle of Studio Katia Iridescent Crystals and some Crystal Stickles
