10 March 2014
I started out making a card for this week's Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge (thanks Laurel, for the nudge!). As usual, though, I ends up going in a separate direction than intended, and like this so much without a turning the die-cut into a tag I left it as is. So....I didn't at all accomplish what I set out to do, but I'm happy with where I ended ;)
I die cut the Lawn Fawn Stitched Journaling main panel out and sponged Memento Angel Pink ink along one edge and toward the middle. I sprayed a bit of Fireworks Spray in London Fog on it, too. I die cut the Simon Says Stamp 'Absolutely' word out and attached it to the panel by using my craft knife to cut out the small area between two 'stitches' at both the top and the bottom of the card. The edges of the die cut word slid right in! The sentiment is stamped in Memento Luxe Gray Flannel ink from the coordinating set for the die.
I spritzed the upper part of the card base with more Fireworks - both London Fog and Angel Pink, added a strip of paper from Lawn Fawn's new Let's Polka paper collection and called this one done! Hopefully I'll find time to play along with the tag challenge before it ends this week, lol!

I'm sharing a SUPER fun card over on the Lawnscaping Challenge blog today, so make sure you head over there to see this whole dino-scene I created! Remember this fun card I create a couple weeks ago? I loved creating it so much I had to make another one this weekend :)
I colored this with my Spectrum Noir markers:
Pteranodon: GB5, GB3, GB1
Trees: GB8, GB0, CG1, CG3, CG4
Rocks: BG1, BG2, BG4
Since there's some green, it totally qualifies for this month's green challenge over at Spectrum Noir, too!
Here's a look at what I used on this card:

Radiant Neon inks from Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko... I love them. More than I probably should! I created a tutorial for their blog today using a few neon (Electric Yellow, Electric Pink, Electric Blue, Electric Green) inks, a gorgeous sentiment from Crafter's Companion, and a fab stencil from The Crafter's Workshop.
It's all pulled together with some Dandelion Fireworks! Spray, which I love. Fireworks sprays have the best shimmer and color, and I might just use them on everything I make for the rest of ever (ok....I'm only kind of kidding!)
For a look at how I put this whole card together, created the polka dots with a sponge dauber, and stenciled those arrows, check out the Imagine Crafts blog today!

So I used the leftovers from another Freida Fox card (I'll show you that early next week) to make this quickie - just some Memento Luxe ink, leftover Authentique paper, and a piece of kraft....done! Oh, and the fun little arrows bits from the Paper Cranes set :) *If* this one took five whole minutes I'd be shocked!
See? Jen del Muro even snapped a piccie of the amazingly wonderful Tenia Nelson, Amber Kemp-Gerstel, and me at CHA with Freida!
We're all iced in again today - wherever you are I hope you're ready for fab weekend ahead!
