I created this simple slimline card, using the Hot Air Balloon stamp set from Mama Elephant. 



I die cut the panel and ink blended with Tumbled Glass and a cloud stencil from My Favorite Things. 



I stamped all four images from the set and colored them with Copic Markers. Here are all the colors I used for this card:
Hot air balloons: E41 - E43 - E44/ E57 - E29/ Y15 - Y17/ R05 - R46/ BG53 - BG57/ YG00 - YG03/ B24 - B26

I fussy cut the images and  assembled the card. I stamped the sentiment directly onto the background.

WHEN IN DOUBT, JUST ADD GLITTER (1)

I'm so happy with this new crafty stamp set from Lawn Fawn: Just Add Glitter. 



For the background I used All the Dots papers. I added a piece of white Woodgrain Cardstock to the bottom to act as the floor.

I stamped the images and colored everything with Copic Markers. Here are all the colors I used:
Mice: E41 - E43 - E44/ E11 - E04/ B24 - B26/ BG53 - BG57/ R46 - R59
Table + chairs: E31 - E33 - E35/ W0 - W3
Cardstock: B24 - B26/ R46 - R59
Ink Pad + card: BG53 - BG57
Scissors: W0 - W3/ BG53 - BG57
Brush: W0 - W3/ BG53 - BG57/ E31 - E33 - E35/ W5 - W7

Ruler: R46 - R59
Glitter: B24 - B26/ BG53 - BG57/ W3 - W5
Glue: B24 - B26/ W5 - W7/ R46 - R59



I die cut the images. I also die cut the sentiment, using Henry's ABCs. I used Black Licorice cardstock and silver glitter cardstock. I layered the black letters behind the silver, so it stands out more on the background.  



The rest of the sentiment was stamped and heat embossed on a piece of Blue Jay cardstock.

Cracked Pistachio + Lucky Clover

THANKS (8)

When coming up with new themes for the Lawn Fawnatics blog, all of us sent in theme dies. And today my suggestion has gone live: Create a project using only dies. And I made this card using the Strawberry Patch die set. 



For the background, I used a piece of Spiffy Speckles pattern paper. All the strawberry elements were die cut from Watercolor Wishes patter paper. Something I never did before, because I usually use solid cardstock for this. Only for the backing behind the strawberries I used Storm Cloud cardstock

I assembled the strawberries and the little branches and added them to the Spiffy Speckles background. 



I used Henry's ABCs dies to die cut the word 'thanks' from Narwhal cardstock. I added them to the card as well. 

It's a very clean, simple and quick card to make.

I got this idea of an open shelving scene when watching a YouTube video by Nichol Spohr, one of my main inspirations when it comes to card making. I used the Feels Like Home and Feels Like Home Addition stamp sets from Avery Elle. 



For the background, I wanted to create a wall. I used Brick stencil from My Favorite Things. I ink blended onto Vanilla malt cardstock, using Tea Dye and Gathered Twigs Oxide Inks. I added dark brown watercolor splatters to it.

I die cut the Peek-a-Boo Backdrop from Woodgrain cardstock.



I stamped the images and colored everything with Copic Markers. Here are the colors I used;

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU (8)

I die cut all the images and assembled the card. I die cut the Happy Birthday to You from three different Lawn Fawn cardstock colors: Peacock, BNo. 2 Pencil and Chili Pepper. I layered the three die cuts for a cool 3D effect. 

I added white highlights with a gel pen to the images and the sentiment.
