Colorthrowdown #454

Good morning everyone.  Here is my card for the current Colorthrowdown challenge #454.

Colorthrowdown 454

I used the Lawn Fawn ‘So Smooth’ stamp set and decided to keep it simple with some spot colouring with Copics and ink.  The sentiment was heat embossed with Zing Metallic Embossing Powder.

A bit of Cute Laundry

I’m sure we all love a baby card.  The sentiments in the My Favorite ThingsWelcome Baby’ are so much fun and mix so well with the Lawn FawnLittle Bundle’ images.   I wanted something simple and clean…(pun intended 🙂 ).  I thought by having a circle framed opening it would look like a front opening washing machine.

All the images are copic coloured in neutral colours for a boy or girl.  I cut the grey frame with My Favorite Things DienamicsStitched Circle Frames‘ die 3 times and glued them together to create a raised element.  As I was originally going to make it a shaker card I adhered a piece of transparency over the back of the opening but when I put it together I felt that the images didn’t ‘shake’ well so I changed it to the images simply being adhered to the background.

To add some texture to the card I used American Crafts textured cardstock (which I have a big stack of!!)  for the frame and behind the clothes.  I also popped up the cardfront with white craft foam and layered the clothes to give some extra dimension.  I then stamped the sentiment in Altenew Crisp dye ink in ‘Lagoon’.

Thanks for stopping by and have a good day.

Fare thee well…

A couple of farewell cards I made last week to go down to the Malaghan Institute of Medical Research for sale.

The first card has a background  blended with Distress Inks over a Cloud Stencil and word cut out with Little Letters dies from My Favorite Things.  Plane and heart smoke trail stamps are Plane and Simple from Lawn Fawn.  A bit of Glossy Accents on the plane wing and propellor.

The second card is a nod to the work the Malaghan Institute do.  Letters cut out from Bronze Metallic card stock with Bold Alphabet Die from Altenew.  Chemistry die cuts are from My Favorite Things Chemistry Set and sponged with Distress Inks.

So thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
