Have a sweet Birthday | Lawnscaping Challenge #126

Hello everyone! I created a birthday card for the 126th Lawnscaping challenge 'Sweets'. I used the new, absolutely adorable 'Loveable Legends' stamp set from Lawn Fawn along with other products of the company.

First I created a watercolor background using distress inks. I used greens and blues so that it looks like grass and the sky.

I also die cut a piece of green watercolored paper (using the same greens) with the 'grassy border' die. Then I used the second largest die from the large 'stitched rectangles' for the background.

I stamped and colored the images with Copic markers and cut them as well. For the sprinkles of the donuts I used matching Lawn Fawn die inks. After that I could assemble the images and created two further layers for my card. First a piece of white cardstock which is a little bit bigger than the watercolored piece and second a mermaid line-dance patterned paper which I die cut with the largest of the large stitched rectangle dies. I adhered the pieces with double-sided adhesive and added the sentiment with a black ink. I used the loveable legends stamp set and the word 'sweet' from the older 'milk and cookies' stamp set for that.

A very easy but cute birthday card :)
Thank you for stopping by and I'll see you soon.

Out of this world | Mama Elephant

Hello! It's me again with a pair of cards featuring 'Space Bears' from Mama Elephant. I used the set two or three weeks ago and created a galaxy for the background. This time I wanted a brighter version and decided to use pinks and orange for the sky. 

I started by smooshing distress ink pads (spiced marmalade, picked raspberry and barn door) onto a piece of laminated paper. 

Then I added a lot of water with a mini mister and pressed a water color paper into the colors. I moved the watercolor paper a bit so that the ink started to mix. I repeated this process. (Whenever I create backgrounds with lots of water I make at least two at once because sometimes one turns out not that pretty and if each of them is fine I just make two cards for my stash :) It's always a surprise how those tecniques turn out)

I let that try and stamped and colored in the space bears with copic-friendly ink and copic markers. After die cutting them I coated the helmets (?) with glossy accents. I also die cut the clouds from white glitter cardstock and vellum. For the balloon from the 'Rainbow High' set I used water color paper again. I added dried marigold and spiced marmalade distress ink to the balloon to match the background.

Before assembling the cards I sprinkled some water droplets on the water color pieces to get the famous distress look. The sentiments are from the same stamp set. I adhered the clouds with double sided adhesive and used foam tape for the balloons and bears. For the string I grabbed a piece of grey/white twine from my stash. Last but not least I added sparkling clear sequins in 4 and 6 mm.
Thank you for stopping by and have a nice Easter holiday!

Have the best Easter | Clearly Besotted, Mama Elephant

Hi there! I am finally back with the last Easter card for this year. I used the brand new stamp set 'Best Easter' from Clearly Besotted as well as different stamp sets from other awesome companies!

I startet by die cutting a circle from a piece of pale green cardstock using the 'sew fancy' die set from Mama Elephant. Than I used two different egg stamps and one butterfly from Easter Lawn Fawn sets along with Versamark ink. I heat embossed the images with clear embossing powder to get that tone on tone design. With the distress ink shabby shutters I darkened up the edges of the green cardstock to get more definition. Then I prepared the pastel yellow cardbase by blending some white Yeti pigment ink from Lawn Fawn.

I put the background pieces aside and startet with the cute images from Clearly Besotted and the adorable rabbit from 'Lunar Animals'. I stamped them with Archival jet black ink onto watercolor paper and colored them in with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. I covered the balloons with glossy accents and let them dry.

Then I assembled the card by adhering the embossed piece of paper with double sided adhesive and the images with foam dots.

For the sentiment I used the greeting included in the set from Clearly Besotted and stamped it onto a piece of Lawn Fawn pattern paper (Hello Sunshine collection). Again I used foam dots for adhering the banner and added some enameld dots.

Have a nice day and thank you for stopping by!
