BON VOYAGE (1)

For this travel card I pulled out an oldie and a new set from Lawn Fawn: Critters Down Under and Plane and Simple.


I started on the background, which I watercolored with Distress Inks. I first die cut some watercolor cardstock with the Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables. I then started watercoloring. I used Mermaid Lagoon and Cracked Pistachio for the sky and Mowed Lawn for the grass. I set it aside to dry


I stamped all the images and colored them with Copic Markers. Here are the colors I used:
Crocodile: YG11 - G21
Trees: E41 - E43/ YG11 - G21
Kangooroos: E31 - E33
Platypus: E57 - E20/ E00 - E11
Koala: E2 - W3 - W5 - W7
Plane: B18 - B39/ B00/ R14 - R46


I die cut the images and assembled the card. I adhered the panel onto a piece of Beach Side paper.

I'm planning on giving this card later this year, to someone who is traveling to Australia for a year.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY (22)

For this birthday card I used the Fab Flowers stamp set and I used a fun technique to give the flowers some extra dimension.


I stamped all the flowers and leaves. The top layer I restamped every time with Versamark Ink, which I then heat embossed with Clear Gloss Embossing Powder from Wow. Th inks I used are all from Lawn Fawn. Here are the ink colors I used:
Purple flowers: Fresh Lavender Ink + Juice Box Ink
Yellow flowers: Butter Ink + Sunflower Ink
Blue flowers: Merman Ink + Fish Tank Ink
Leaves: Freshly Cut Grass Ink + Noble Fir Ink


I also stamped a banner, from Bannerstastic, in Bubblegum Ink.

I fussy cut the images. I then die cut the word happy, with the Scripy Happy die, from Cilantro carstock. I stamped the word birthday inside the banner.

I die cut a piece of white cardstock with the Small Stithced Rectangle Stackables. I also die cut a piece of Watercolor Wishes paper, with the Fancy Scalloped Rectangle Stackables.


I assembled the card and finished off with some Nuvo Crystal Drops in the Bubblegum Blush color.

I really love that heat embossed layer on top of the flowers.

YOU'RE PLANE AWESOME (1)

I've been wanting to use the paper plane, from the Plane and Simple stamp set from Lawn Fawn. I combined it with one of the chicks from Chirpy Chirp Chirp.


I started with die cutting a piece of Mermaid cardstock with the Stitched Cloudy Backdrops: Landscape. I also die cut a Grassy Border from Cilantro cardstock. I decided to stamp the sentiment in Noble Fir Ink onto the grassy border. I adhered the grass onto the cloud background with foam tape.

I stamped the paper plane, clouds and chick and colored them with Copic Markers. Here are the colors I used:
Paper plane: R22 - R35

I added faces and rosey ckeeks (with Wild Rose Ink) to the clouds. I fussy cut the images and adhered them to the panel. I adhered the panel onto a Blue Jay cardbase.

SMILE, IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY (1)

The Up in the Air stamp set from My Favorite Things has more then just these great hot air balloons. There are those fun banners and birds, so I decided to highlight them on this card.


I started on the background, with Distress Inks and a blending tool. I used Abandonded Coral and Fossilized Amber. I added some water drops onto the panel and dabbed them off with a paper towel. I then die cut the word 'smile' with the Word For Friends die set from MFT. The piece of paper that is going behind this word, I blended with Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink.


I stamped the banner with the little flags and the two birds. I colored the images with Copic Markers. Here are the colors I used:
Flags: YG41 - BG35
Birds: Y00 - Y02/ R22 - R35

I die cut the images with my Cuttlebug and adhered them to the panel. I heat embossed the sentiment with Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder from Wow (sentiment is from Jump For Joy, by Lawn Fawn) I added the panel onto a white cardbase and rounded off the two bottom corners.


I sometimes love to create clean and simple cards and I love soft pastel colors.
