21st Birthday Big Congratulations

Today  I  played with some of my Lawn Fawn stamps and decided to make a fun 21st Birthday card to enter in the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 3- Outstanding occasions. I love the way that the Lawn Fawn stamp sets have little bits that you can interchange around and they always seem to be the right scale, so I decided to make a  21st birthday background paper using some of the fun little bits and stamp ink colours to match the Lawn Fawn plaid paper. And I  couldn’t resist the cute little elephant from the Elfie Selfie set to send “Big” congratulations.

Easter Pop-Up Box Card

Today I had  a play with my, “just arrived in time for Easter”, newly released Lawn Fawn scalloped box die. And how could I not make it into anything else but an Easter box pop-up card with some cute little bunnies and lots of Easter eggs.

Pastel Rainbow

Today I have been inspired by two challenges, Scrapbook Boutique April 2017 Mood Board Challenge and Paper Smooches April 2017 challenge-Showers and have created a pastel rainbow card with sparkle.

The raindrops background was created using the Paper Smooches Luminous Spring stamp set and a variety of pastel inks. The clouds were stamped using the Luminous Spring and Paper Smooches Forest Whimsy stamp sets, silver heat embossed then filled with white glitter. The die cut rainbow card colours were made by swiping the stamp ink colours onto white card stock. The rainbow wishes sentiment was stamped and then heat embossed with clear sparkle embossing powder.

Today I have been inspired by the Altenew Inspiration Challenge April 2017 to create a card for my Mum Mothers Day.Altenew April Challenge

Using the inspiration colour scheme, I began by creating a pale yellow watercolour background. I then used Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks to create smooched blue and green backgrounds for the flowers and leaves. They were then white heat embossed, fussy and die cut, then brushed with clear Wink of Stella.

65th Wedding Anniversay

Today I was asked to create a special 65th Wedding Anniversary card for life long friends of my Mother. Not knowing what 65 years commemorates, apart from being a very long time,  I had to do a google to find out that it is “blue sapphire”. This set the colour for the card, and knowing that the couple are well into their 80’s I thought a simple romantic classic style.

Stamps: Stampin Up Baroque Motifs, Hero Arts Happy stamp & cut
