Good morning everyone! Today I’m thrilled to be featured on the Lawn Fawn blog. I shared with them this fun nautical thank you card. I have been living in Providence for almost a month, and even though i LOVE it… i also miss Cape Cod a bit… so I decided to do a nautical card. I thought of this idea when talking to one of my besties Melyssa about Sea Monkey’s and how odd they are – that made me think of capturing seahorses in a jar… normal right? I love this fun card that came to life… my first creation in my *new* space! :)
Upcoming Class on the cape details here
Ok… onto the fun stuff- the CARD ;) I took a bunch of detail shots because i wanted you to get a sense of the dimension and the glitter and the glossy accented bubbles :) Now it’s time for me to design my moving cards!
For the next Lawnscaping Challenge we have for you some Winter Wonderland cards. I’m not a huge fan of winter, shocker i know… but i DO love my blues and snowflakes! I thought the fox from critters in the woods was perfect for a snowy scene. Be sure to check out the other girls creations over on the blog, and share with us your winter wonderland creation so you can have a chance of winning some Lawn Fawn goodies! I decided to add some liquid applique to create the snowy scene- love puffing it up with a heat tool!
Well, this is the last Lawnscaping Challenge for the year. I have had so much fun doing these challenges over the past 5 months :) This time around it is “Make it Shine” and anyone who has been in one of my classes knows how much i *love* glitter! So i challenged myself to put on as many glittery elements on this card as I could (with it still looking nice)
This challenge is sponsored by Lawn Fawn- who doesn’t want to win some goodies from them?!
Be sure to pop on over to the lawnscaping challenge blog to see all of the design teams inspiration, and submit your entry as well!
Playing a long with the spatter technique over on the Moxe Fab World blog- you have until July 4th to participate. I have never really used a spatter technique on my cards- definitely have on my more artsy fartsy type projects. I played with some ranger color washes, lawn fawn stamps, watercolor pencils and voila! I got a little under water scene! Thinking I will add this card to my “Heroes Card Drive” stash to send out at the end of July.
I participated in the Hero Arts Scramble this weekend over on the Flickr group. My friend Cheiron was hosting, and my friend Glenda and I met up in a google+ hangout to stamp together. We were given the challenge to create a card for OURSELVES using all of our favorite items. A card just for lil ol me!? ok!!! Teal, teal, and a lil more teal… kraft…. a lil bling, letters and fonts are a love of mine. I love office supplies, hence the grid and punched border I used. AND the best of all “Saturday” my favorite day of the week!!! (see below for a full listing of the supplies I used)
Thank you for hosting Cheiron!
I love the patterned clouds in the Hero Arts/ Studio Calico Set – Hooray . I have made so many cards with that one set alone, and I’m not done yet! I also have been loving the Envelope pattern background stamp, that a few friends talked me into getting. I made the “rain drops” with my quickie glue pen and ultra fine crystal glitter – so fun! And for this design it only seemed fitting that I used gray for the sentiment so i grabbed my Versafine in Smokey Gray.
