"Alice In Wonderland" Theme with Lawn Fawn.....

Hello everyone!! 
I have missed you guys!! I am so sorry for my absence, 
we received heartbreaking news almost two weeks ago. 
My older brother's wife passed away unexpectedly. 
They live out of town several hours away. We traveled to be with them. 
Please keep him and our family in your prayers. 

I did have a chance to do some coloring (I am behind on the 30 Day Coloring Challenge, lol). 
I had an idea a bit ago while I was creating the Disney themed Lawn Fawn cards. 
I wanted to create an "Alice In Wonderland" themed set. That is one of our favorite movies. 
My mother in law especially loves it. 

I also wanted to create a card for my friend the super talented Rubeena from A Rare Ruby
Her projects are truly stunning and inspiring!! Since I was a bit late in creating a birthday card 
for her, I thought the Alice In Wonderland theme would be perfect. 

I began by going through my Lawn Fawn stamps to choose the images I would be using. 
For Alice and the Mad Hatter, I used the Bicycle For You set. For the Rabbit I used the cute image from the Somebunny stamp set, for the timepiece I used the stopwatch image from the Plan On It: Fitness stamp set. I used a sharpie black pen to draw in the lines for the outfits and the timepiece. 

The mushrooms and tall grass are from the Gleeful Gardens set. For the teacups, I used the Love You Latte stamp set. I also used the flowers from the Fairy Friends set. 

I used Copic markers to color all of my images in. I created two cards using the same design. 
One in primary colors and one in pastel tones. For my shadow box cards, I was inspired and fell in love with the cards Jennifer McGuire created. You can see her video here

For the first card, I used Mowed Lawn Distress Ink for the grass areas. I die cut them using Lawn Fawn Grassy Border and Simple Stitched Hillside Dies. For the background, I began with a light blue pigment ink and added it to almost the whole area. I then added Broken China and Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Inks to deepen the color. 

I began to color my images...after finally making up my mind which colors I would be using (I have quite a bit of mushrooms colored in different combinations, lol). For the red areas, I used R59, R29, R27, R24, R05, and R02. 

For the blue areas, I used B95, 93, 21, 01, 000. For the greens, I used YG17, G14, YG03, and a bit of G20. For the Yellow areas, I used YR23, Y19, Y15, Y11, Y00. 

For the pastel version, I used the same stamp sets. I used softer colors to color my images in. 
For the grass areas, I used Twisted Citron Distress Ink. For the sky, I used Peacock Feathers and 
the same light blue pigment ink I used earlier. 

For the blue/mint areas, I used BG34, 10, and 000. For the pink areas, I used R21, 30, and 00. 
For the yellows, I used Y35, YR21, Y32. For the green, I used YG03 and G20. 

Sorry for all of the photos, lol! I was trying to make sure you could see all of the details. 
I truly had fun coloring and creating these cards. 
It felt awesome to be back in my craft room. 

Thank you so much for stopping by!! 
I wish you a wonderful and blessed day!!

Just A Little Note to Say....

Hello everyone! 
Happy June 1st!! 
Today is the start of another round of the wonderful 
Kathy's 30 Day Coloring Challenge. 

For today I colored the Critter Concert stamp set 
from Lawn Fawn. 

I used this set because it is perfect to create birthday cards or graduation cards
(it is that time of year). 

I used Copic markers for my coloring today. 

For the bear I used E30, E37, E55, E31, then I added a bit of E59, and E57. 

For the fox, I used E18, E17, E37, and E35. 

To create the scenes for my cards I used the 
Lawn Fawn Shadow Box card Theatre Add-On along with the Lawn Fawn Shadow Box Card die, 
Lawn Fawn Scalloped Stitched Circles, Lawn Fawn Little Music Notes, and Scalloped Pop-Up card die.  

 For the owl, I used the same colors as the bear, except I didn't use the E30, E31. 

This was a fun set to create! 
Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by!! 
Wishing you a wonderful and blessed day!!

Hello Friend with Hello Bluebird....

Hello and Happy Wednesday!! 
I am stopping by to share a card that I created using the 
adorable Farmyard Little Bits stamp set by Hello Bluebird
This is one of my favorites (not sure if I mentioned it already, lol) from the 
May 2018 release. 

I began by coloring these cuties in. 
For the cows, I used W1 and W0. 
For the dark areas, I used E44, E49, E47. 

For the piggies, I used R21, R30, YR000. 

I also used the new Grassy Knoll Die set to create the scene. 
I added Mowed Lawn Distress Ink to the grass layers. 
I used the cloud borders in the set to create a stencil. 
I then used it to create the clouds in the background with Peacock Feathers
Distress Oxide ink. 

For the base of the card, I used the Gallery Frame #1 die set. 
I hope you enjoy the card I created to share with you and feel inspired to create!

Waving Hello....Mermaid Theme with Lawn Fawn

Hello everyone!! 
Happy Thursday, I almost typed Wednesday by accident! 
This week is flying by!! 
I am stopping by today to share a set of "Little Mermaid "
inspired cards I created using lots of Lawn Fawn goodies. 

I created two cards. One was inspired by the current Lawn Fawnatics and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenges. 
For the Lawn Fawnatics, it is an Inspiration Board challenge. 
I loved the beach image and the one with the water.
I wanted to create a beachy/under the sea theme card. 

For the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, it is use more than one stamp. 
I had fun with that!! 

For my cards I used the Mermaid For You, Fintastic Friends, You Are Sublime, Maatee-rific, Life Is Good stamp sets. 

I colored in all of my images using Copic markers. 
For the red areas, I used R00, R20, R05, R27, R29, R59, with a bit of R22, and R35 also. 

For the green areas, I used G14 and YG03. 
For the purple areas, I used V15, V12, V20, V22. 
For the darker purples, I used the same ones as the lighter combo but added BV08, V17, and V04.

These images are so easy and fun to color. 

To create the underwater scene I used the Stitched Wave Borders die set. 
I added Peacock Feathers and Salty Ocean to create the color. 

I used the Peekaboo Backdrop Die to create the beach/underwater scene for my card. 

This is the other card I created to share with you. 
For this one, I used the Shadow Box Card Die along with the Shadow Box Card 
Ocean Add-On set.

I used the same colors for both cards. 

I hope you enjoy and feel inspired to create!! 
Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by!
