Wednesday Card Day – You Make Me Happy When Skies Are Grey

Wednesday Card Day Intro


Hi everyone! Today I’m here with another card for the Simon Says Stamp March Card Kit. This card also uses some great products from Lawn Fawn that aren’t in the kit.

Here is my card —

You Make Me Happy When Skies Are Grey

I started this card with Neenah Solar White card stock cut to a standard size card with the fold on top. I measured and cut the sunshine rays paper from Lawn Fawn’s Hello Sunshine Collection and adhered it to the front of the card. I measured the paper to make sure the rays were at the bottom center as if the rays were shining. I then used the Lawn Fawn Speech Bubble border die using the grey polka dot paper from the same collection to place on top. For the sentiment, I used the orange alphabet stickers from Kelly Purkey included in the kit. I saw this sentiment on Pinterest and knew that it would work well with the card. For the image, I stamped the own and log from Lawn Fawn’s Critters in the Forest set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored it with alcohol markers. I have inexpensive markers from Hobby Lobby that I’m using to learn to blend colors. I’m still trying my best and learning how to blend with the help of YT videos but somehow my finished product don’t match up. But practice makes perfect so I will defintely keep practicing.

To finish the card, I stuck the speech bubble and owl image with foam adhesive and added some sequins from Darice that was included in the kit.

You’re a Hoot

Hey Everyone! 🙂

I’m here today with a card to inform everyone about the Paper Smooches August DT Blog Hop. Paper Smooches is releasing a new line of stamps and dies which will be on sale starting September 1.

I decided to make a card using some of the awesome free digis you can download over at their website.

Here is my card —

You're A Hoot

I started with a card base measuring 3 1/2 by 5 1/2. I adhered a piece of patterned paper from ColorBok’s Hootenanny collection. I printed the digital images on some Neenah Solar White card stock. I colored the owl and branch image with some American Crafts Chromatix markers. I rounded all four corners of the panel and drew stitching lines with the Sakura green metallic gel pen. To finish the card, I adhered the panel on the base and rounded the side corners.

Owl I Want For Christmas Is You

Owl I Want For Christmas Is You 

I made this card in October and I entered it for the Lawn Fawn and Two Peas In A Bucket challenge. I thought I would share it since I never made a blog post about it. 🙂

Owl I Want For Christmas Is You

I started out with a bamboo green card stock from The Paper Company cut to a standard size card with the flap on the side. To that I layered some red card stock and then layered the green chevron paper from Lawn Fawn’s Fa-la-la patterned paper pack. For the top panel, I stamped the Polaroid image from Say Cheese on the O Christmas Tree patterned paper from the same Fa-la-la paper pack. I distressed the Polaroid with some Dessert Sand ink from Memento. For the actual picture in the Polaroid, I distressed the background with some Summer Sky ink from Memento on the entire square and some Broken China Distress ink for a darker effect on the sides. Then I stamped the Snowflake stamp from Imaginisce in Bahama Blue ink from Memento and accented each snowflake with some blue stickles. For the owl, I used Lawn Fawn’s Winter Owl set. I stamped the owl on some plain white card stock and colored it in with Copics. I paper pieced the scarf with the same green chevron paper from the Fa-la-la paper pack by Lawn Fawn. I used googly eyes for fun. For the sentiment, I used the puny sentiment from the same Winter Owl set. I stamped the each word individually to properly space it between three lines in Lady Bug and Cottage Ivy inks from Memento. I also stamped the mini heart border. I placed some peppermint single cord from Lawn Fawn under the die cut image for added accent.
