Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 8: Summertime Fun

Hello! I have finally had a chance to play along with the new Lawn Fawnatics Challenge. This is a challenge blog that is all about sharing a love of Lawn Fawn products. And boy do I LOVE Lawn Fawn! I have wanted to play since the very first challenge, I even started a couple of projects, but I never had a chance to post them. But today is a new day! The theme for their 8th challenge is Summertime Fun. I was lucky a couple of weeks ago and I won a fantabulous prize pack from a flamingo-themed hop on Instagram. In the pack was the Flamingo Together stamp set that I have wanted for quite a while. So that's what I used on my card today. I was thinking about Summertime romances, and bold, bright skies.

I was really inspired by one of Jennifer McGuire's latest videos, which is where I came up with the basic concept for this card. I sprayed an acrylic block with Imagine's Fireworks! Sprays in Rose Bud, Dandelion, and Bahama Blue. I placed the wet block on to a piece of Smooth Bristol paper from Canson and let it sit for a while.

You can see in the photo above the fantastic shimmer that the Fireworks! Sprays have. Then I stamped the images with VersaFine Ink in Onyx Black. I thought embossing the images would really make them pop, so I used Stampendous Detail Black Embossing Powder. I decided my background needed a little something more, so I shook up my Fireworks! again, unscrewed the cap, and used the straw to apply drops of color. Then I created my card base with Banana Pepper cardstock from My Colors.

There you have it. I really enjoyed using my acrylic block to apply color to the background. What a fun and simple technique that will come out differently every time. Thank you so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Two Huge Valentine’s Day Hops!

I am in not one, but two Valentine’s Day hops! Not bad for someone that doesn’t even like Valentine’s Day… The first is via Smeared & Smudged . It’s time for our monthly Member Blog Hop! The second was started by Taylor Usry . Please bear with me…this post is long because I am sharing 2 projects and the hop lists are huge. Let’s stat with Smeared & Smudged, shall we? My dear friend Alex and I collaborated on the theme for this month’s S&S Member Hop. Instead of making it a free-for –all, we decided to challenge our members a little…create something Valentine’s Day / love themed, but there is a catch.  Because we are Smeared and Smudged you can not use any of the following: No hearts No red or pink Nothing ‘cute’ unless you make it uncute of course :) Ok, so it’s not dark and scary…but it’s definitely not cute either. I used my colored pencils for the focal image.  It’s from Smeared Ink’s Smitten collection. The “pretty fly” is from the teir teen Style Sa
