Sorry I was snappy

Hi everyone,

I have a fun card that I created for Day 21 of the Kathy Racoosin's 30 day colouring challenge here using mostly Lawn Fawn products.






I started by creating my background with a stencil and some distress inks.
For the sun I applied some distress ink on to a small piece of cardstock and added some clear embossing powder and then die cut the sun itself using a small circle die from Spellbinders.

The sky was created with a die and some Lawn Fawn watercolour cardstock. I die cut the grass twice with some patterned paper and then coloured the little alligator with 2 different shades of green Copic markers. I used a stitched die to add stitching to the all sides of the card.

Stamped the sentiment and added a little die cut heart.

Well that's it for this card and thanks for stopping by.

Supplies:
Lawn Fawn Wild For You stamp and die set
Lawn Fawn Puffy Cloud Borders die set
Lawn Fawn Grassy Border die 
Lawn Fawn Stitched Borders die set

happy for your friendship

Hi everyone,

I have a card to share with you for the current SSSflickrchallenge  here where the theme is "To Emboss Like a Boss" and also for Day 17 of thedailymarker30day here by Kathy Racoosin.




I started by blending some scuba ink to the base of my card. Then I added a stencil and some translucent embossing paste over that to create my background. I then went on to create a watercolour pallette so I could die cut the word happy from it.

I used 2 stitched rectangle dies to emboss the edges of my card and then flicked on some drops of color shine.

Layered the panel with some foam tape onto a decorative card which I believe is from Concord & 9th. Added the die cut word and the sentiment which was stamped on black cardstock and heat embossed with white powder.

Well that's it for this card and thanks for stopping by.

Supplies:

SSS Stitched Rectangle die set
SSS Diagonal Stripe stencil
WPlus9 Happy Trio die set
Hero Arts Everyday Saying stamp set
Dreamweaver Translucent embossing paste
Peerless Watercolors
SSS Scuba ink cube
Heidi Swapp Teal Color Shine spray
SSS White embossing powder

Give thanks

Hi everyone,

It's a beautiful hot summer's day here with a temperature of 31 Celsius. Love it. Although it still feels like summer I seem to be in the mode for making cards with fall colours.

Here's one for Day 13 of Kathy Racoosin's thedailymarker30day challenge here.



I started by watercolouring some leaves with various colours of Distress inks.
For the background of my card I used an embossing folder aptly called leaves. I die cut that piece with a large stitched rectangle die and the banner piece was also die cut from that same rectangle die.
I then layered that onto my Desert Storm cardstock which I embossed using again the same rectangle die.

I couldn't find the Hero Arts stamp that I was looking for to stamp my sentiment so I used a sticker that I had. I know, I know that sounds a little different but it's hard to tell that it wasn't stamped.

Popped up the leaves and the sentiment piece with foam dots and added some twine and crystal drops for a little accent.

That's it for this card and thanks for stopping by.

Supplies:

Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle die
Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Leaves
QuicKutz Lifestyle Crafts Leaves embossing folder
Distress Inks
Nuvo Crystal drops - Ripened Pumpkin
Creative Imaginations Give Thanks sticker
Lawn Fawn twine
Neenah Solar White and Desert Storm cardstock

Thanks and distress oxide inks

Hi everyone,

The card below is for Day 5 of Kathy Raccoosin's 30 day colouring challenge here.




I used a SSS stencil with 3 different colours of Distress Oxide inks and some Tim Holtz Distress Grit-Paste to create my pretty background. The paste gives an almost velvety effect to the touch. 
Used a stitched rectangle die to edge the piece and then used another stitched edge die to cut out the shape at the bottom.

Layered the coloured/embossed panel onto a piece of black cardstock and die cut the thanks from white cardstock. Adhered that at the bottom and added a few enamel dots.

Well that's it for this card and thanks for stopping by.

Supplies:

SSS Stitched Rectangle die set
SSS Swirls and Dots stencil
MFT Dienamics Stitched Basic Edges die set
Avery Elle Sentimental die set
Tim Holtz Distress Grit-Paste
Distress Oxide inks - Picked Raspberry, Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade
Freckled Fawn enamel dots
