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 ...lol, 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!

Make A Wish Pop-Up With Lawn Fawn....

Hello!!! 
I hope your week is off to a wonderful start! 
I am stopping by today to share a pop card I created
using lots of Lawn Fawn goodies. 

From the moment I saw the new Coaster Critters stamp set I thought of a Disney themed card.


I began by coloring the images I would be using to create 
my theme park themed card. 


The castle and sentiment are from the Critters Ever After stamp set. 
The trees are from the Happy Trails set. 


The adorable shops for my version of Main Street are from the Happy Village and Village Shops stamp sets. The light posts are from the Winter Village set. 


My Tinker Bell is from the Fairy Friends stamp set ( one of my all-time favorite sets)! 
Once I knew the images I would be using I colored them in using my Copic markers. 
For the pink areas, I used R22, R21, R0000. Blue areas I used B28, B24, B21, and B0000. 
For the castle, I used W7, W5, W3, W1, C1, and C0. 
For the greens, I used a new favorite green combo
YG17, G99, G94, G14, YG03, G20, and YG00. 

This was a super fun card to create!! 
To create the pop up I used the Scalloped Box Pop-Up Die set from Lawn Fawn. 

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by! 
Wishing you a wonderful and Blessed day!!
