You Got A Friend In Me ... Toy Story Inspired Card for Lawn Fawnatics Guest Designer....

Hello everyone! Happy Monday!!! I am super HAPPY to be guest designing once again for the awesome Lawn Fawnatics Challenge Blog. The fun continues with this challenge, it is a three-week challenge. The theme is Interactive Cards. There are so many ways to create, and add interactive elements to your cards!! Lawn Fawn products make creating these types of cards super fun!!! 

As you can imagine my family and I are huge Disney fans. I was inspired by the Toy Story movies and by two previous cards I had created before for these cards. These are based on Toy Story 1 and 2. 

I used the awesome Magic Iris Die to add the interactive element to the first card. 
I started by adding Salty Ocean Distress Ink to the backgrounds of "Andy's Room". The idea for this card is that Woody is reading Buzz, Hamm, Rex, Jesse, and of course the little alien a western-themed story. The Magic Iris opens up to reveal a sheriff's office in the wild west.

The stars for the background are from the Shadow Box Card Theatre Add-On set. I die cut them several times until the room looked the way I was hoping it would.  I added a bit of Mustard Seed Distress Oxide ink to give them just a little bit more color. 

For the wood floor, I used the lightest wood color printed paper from the 6x6 Petite Knock On Wood Paper Pad from Lawn Fawn.  The howdy sentiment is from the Stuck On You stamp set. I heat embossed it onto red cardstock then added it to the card. 

I had lots of fun coloring these little characters. "Woody" is from the Screen Time stamp set. "Buzz" is from the Out Of This World stamp set. "Rex" is from the RAWR set, "Hamm" is from Hay There, and the little alien is from Beam Me Up.   

For the inside of the card, the scene is inspired by "Woody's Round-Up" tv show fromToy Story 2. 
The idea is that as he is reading them the story he is imagining the scene from his show with the little critters. And the theme for Woody is "you have a friend in me"... That is the theme of this card. 
I adore how they are all unique and yet they are great friends. 

I used the Build A House die to create the Sheriff's office. I used the Stitched Woodgrain Backdrop die to die cut a piece of brown cardstock to create the wood walkway for this fun town. 
I used the Stitched Mountain Borders to create the mountains for the scene, the hills are from the
Slimline Stitched Hillside Borders. I added Distress Ink in Rusty Hinge and Gathered Twigs to the mountains and hillsides, along with the base of the card. 

 For the third card, I used the awesome new Large Slimline with Sliders dies. The theme for this card is Pizza Planet. The You're Claw-some, How You Bean and Sweet Smiles stamps were perfect for this theme. The little mason jar of stars and the planet filled gumball machines are both shakers. The spaceship claw slides back and forth trying to get one of the adorable little aliens. 


I hope you enjoyed this fun set of cards I created to share with you. I can't thank you enough for all of your support and encouragement! I am very grateful to have had this blessing of being a guest designer for the Lawn Fawnatics blog. Praying you all to have a wonderful and blessed day.

YAY!!! Guest Designing for Lawn Fawnatics!!!!

Hello everyone!!! Happy Monday!!
 I am soo EXCITED...yes this call for all caps for the word excited, lol!!! 
I am beyond grateful, happy, and honored to be a guest designer for the
 It is such a blessing and a prayer answered!!!

As you may know by now I am a huge fan of Lawn Fawn. 
I love their products. I always have so much fun creating with their stamps and dies. 
For challenge #79 the theme is Interactive Cards. 
This was such a great challenge for me to be part of. 
One of my favorite types of cards to create are interactive ones. 

I created a shaker pivot pop-up card. I truly had a blast creating it. 

I began by die cutting the Stitched Pond Die four times,
the largest rectangle from the Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables die set four times, the pieces for the pivot pop up from the Pivot Pop-Up die,  the Stitched Wave Borders, and the mountains from the Shadow Box Card Mountain Add-On.  On one of the stitched rectangles that will be going on the inside of the card, I used the smallest circle from the Lift The Flap Circles dies to create an interactive window for the treasure chest. I also used the Stitched Woodgrain backdrop die to die cut two pieces of kraft card stock, from those I die cut four frames using the smallest frame from Say Cheese, Again.

Next, I added color to what would become my island. I die cut the maze onto the ponds using the
You can do that step after you add color, 
I did it before so I can see what areas 
I would like to be green and which areas were going to be brown for the sand.

 I used Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, and Pine Needles Distress Oxide inks for green areas of the "island". I also used those colors for the mountains in the pivot scenes. For the base that would be seen of the islands, I used Cracked Pistachio and Peacock Feathers. For the sandy areas, I used Gathered Twigs and Ground Espresso Distress Inks. For the ocean areas, I used Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers, Blueprint Sketch, and Chipped Sapphire. Then I spritzed the layers with a bit of water, which is always lots of fun. 

Next, I colored all of the images I would be using to create the islands, the underwater, and pivot window scenes. One of the things I love to do is go through the stamp sets and choose the images that will create the scenes that I am hoping for. 

I used various sets, I will have them listed below. I used Copic markers to color these in. My favorite go-to combinations. For the green areas, I used G94, YG17, YG23, YG03, and YG01. For the brown areas, I used E49, E47, E44, and E43. For the yellow areas, I used Y19, Y08, Y11, and Y00. 

I hope you enjoy the cards I created to share with you and hope you feel inspired to join us for the challenge, can't wait to see what everyone creates! 
Hoping you each have a wonderful and blessed day.
