I Think… You Are My Favorite

Hello again! I hope you guys are having a great week so far! I’ve been having a lot of fun these last couple of days because of The Daily Marker’s 30 Day Coloring Challenge. I have been keeping up with the challenge and been coloring everyday so far. I know we’re barely on day 4 but if you know me…. Anyway, you should really check out The Daily Marker site and look up #TheDailyMarker30Day2 on Instagram and see all the neat coloring going on.

For day 3 of the challenge I colored the unicorn from the Spectrum stamp set from Paper Smooches and decided to use it for a card. This is my third card using Spectrum and all because of this little unicorn, it’s adorbz! Also, I will be submitting this to the Paper Smooches SPARKS Anything Goes Challenge.

I wanted the unicorn on top of a cloud and so when I do masking, I like to do it with masking tape. I stamp my image on a couple of pieces of tape, depending on how wide the image is. I know this might seem like more work but it’s easier for me to cut each strip and really because I have masking tape and no masking paper. I only cut the bottom portion of the unicorn’s body because I knew the cloud was going to only reach the top of it’s legs. I placed the tape on the stamped unicorn and stamped the cloud on top with my MISTI.I Think You Are My Favorite 3I just love how crisp the images look when stamped with the MISTI.

I also decided to do partial die cutting. I cut the top of the unicorn after I colored it.

Then I turned it around and cut the bottom of the cloud.

I made an ombre background using Mini Distress Inks and sprinkled a little water on it. Here’s a tip, in order to make sure I masked the edges the same length, I used graph paper underneath.

To finish it off, I colored the unicorn horn and cloud with clear Wink of Stella and stamped the rest of the sentiment inside the card.

Pink Lemonade Hello Card

Hello again! After I posted last night, I was ready to get in my craft room to try to come up with a card for the Lawnscaping Challenge: Create a Background.

Yesterday I bought the Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad Mini Kit #1 and a Versamark Emboss Ink Pad and I REALLY wanted to use both with this card. For this challenge, I had to create my own background using stamps. I went with Lawn Fawn’s Sophie’s Sentiments and used the little happy face, flower, and heart.

I created the background with the distress inks, and used white embossing powder for the pattern. I cut the sides with Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Scallop Border and the sentiment with Scripty Hello in three different colors. The background was then added to the card with foam tape.

I’m very happy with how it came out and I can’t wait to submit more cards to the Lawnscaping Challenges!
