Message in the sky with Peter

Hi everyone! I'm back to show you a fun and simple thank you card. I wanted to make a really simple and fun card. I looked through my dies and came across the Partly Cloudy Die from Hello Bluebird. I decided on only using the clouds that the die cuts. I took my Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables set to cut the largest rectangle out of watercolor paper. With the Cloudy Stencil from Lawn Fawn I made a cloudy background with Distress Oxide . I used Tumbled Glass as a base and I used Salvaged Patina to make the actual clouds. With that is was time to adhere the clouds in place. I first did the ones that have a cut off side and I but them around the place they are in in the die. Out of green cardstock I cut the Scripty Thanks from Lawn Fawn and with Distress Oxide Rustic Wilderness I added a little color on the bottom so it becomes a gradient. I used the Plane and Simple stamp set from Lawn Fawn to add a cute plane on the bottom with an additional sentiment in the banner: '

Oh Snap!

  Hello crafty friends, it's Veronica here! Yesterday was my birthday, so here it is a funny birthday card 🥳  To create my card I first stamped some images on a piece of Transotype paper. This super funny crocodile is by Avery Elle, while the other festive elements of the scene are by My Favorite Things. As always, I colored everything with my Copic Ciao markers and fussy cut it.  For the backround, I trimmed a piece of Neenah Solar white paper and ink blended some Distress Oxide in Squeezed Lemonade and Antique Linen . I also added a lilac frame by Lawn Fawn. To finish off my card, I assembled everything with some foam on a piece of lilac card stock and added some clear sequins . The sentiment is from the same Avery Elle stamp set and it is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on some Mama Elephant speech bubbles die cuts. I really hope you like it and see you next time! From Italy with love, Veronica

Have a sweet day with Leontine

Hello! Today I thought I'd make a card with some older and some newer sets from Lawn Fawn. It’s perfect for the current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 105: Fun with food. Here's how I made it. First I cut a piece of Watercolor Wishes Rainbow paper (Amethyst) with the Simple Stripes: Diagonal die. I glued those strips onto a card base of 5,5" x 4,25". Next I cut some foliage with a piece of  Emerald from the Watercolor Wishes Rainbow paper . I used leaves from Tropical Leaves and Happy Hibiscus . I figured out the placement of each leaf before I used liquid glue to adhere them to the background. I die cut the ice cream parts from Vanilla Malt cardstock and white cardstock. I used pieces from I Scream, You Scream and Stitched Cupcake . To keep the sprinkles in place, I carefully turned the die cut cardstock over and put some painters tape on the back. That way I could color them with my copic sketch makers: BG23, RV23, Y13 and BV02. After coloring the sprinkles I p

July Mood Board inspiration with Jane

  Hi Friends!  I'm so happy to share this Birthday card featuring colors inspirited by the July mood board (see below).   To create this card, I first ink blended the background on Bristol paper using the following distress oxide inks (top to bottom): mustard seed, dried marigold , abandoned coral , seedless preserves and dusty concord .  Then, I splatted the background using water and a thin paint brush.   The background was then cut using the scallop stackables die set to create a fun pattern on the edges of the paper.   Next, I stamped and colored the images using copic markers from the following Lawn Fawn stamp sets: Ocean shell-fie , fintastic friends , mermaid for you , you are sublime , keep on swimming and so jelly .   After the images were cut using the coordinating dies, I adhered them using foam tape, thin foam squares and liquid glue to the card front.   Next, I cut the scripty "birthday " and scripty "wishes " die using white cardstock.  The &quo

Big Birthday Wishes Slimline Card

Hi BRI friends, Sara here! I am back with a new card, inspired by the July BRI Mood Board Challenge .   I really love this color palette, I think this is one of my favorite so far! So, this is my inspiration!    This time, I started with the background. I wasn’t sure how to make my scene, I didn’t know what stamp to use, but I wanted to play with Ranger alcohol ink . I have a “love and hate” relationship with this medium, because I really love the result but I am afraid of the process because you cannot control it LOL. But I thought it was the perfect time to try them! So I took out three colors that matched the Mood Board: Poppy Field, Peach Bellini and Wild Plum. I used Yupo Paper and I started applying some blending solution and some drops of color. I knew I wanted to make a slimline, but I started with a bigger sheet, so I could decide what section I like more. I also knew I wanted to leave a large white space, so I put ink only on one corner. When I got the result I wanted, I st
