Hi there! Next week is Spring Break here in west Texas and I’m still wearing my winter jacket… HURRY UP SPRING!!! Since I’ve been spending a lot of time indoors, I figured I might as well get started on some end-of-the-year cards for my son’s teachers. I have had the A Good Apple stamp set from Lawn Fawn since last year and hadn’t used it, that is, until now. And what better timing because Lawnscaping Challenges’ new challenge is Dots & Stripes.
I have Lawn Fawn’s Let’s Polka Petite Paper Pack which was exactly what I needed for this challenge and surprise, surprise, I doodled some more.
I wanted to keep the cards simple but make each a little different because everything I have made for them has been identical. I used my Copic .05 pen to doodle, and I colored in the leaves of the apples and letters with my Grayish Olive Copic marker. I got a little brave and TRIED to give some of the apples a little bit of a shadow.
I sure hope AJ’s teachers like their cards, lord knows they deserve some goodies! Now that I think about it, I might add some apple scented lotion or a caramel apple!
Hopefully the next time you check my blog I will have a picture of my pear tree blooming, but I doubt it… fingers crossed though!
Hi guys! I am back with a new card, and I’m pretty excited about this one! I doodled! Now, my doodling is not all that but all in all the card came together the way I envisioned it in my mind.
I’m submitting this card in the Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge: Anything Goes.
I fell in love with the Paper Smooches bee when I first saw it, and I knew it would be perfect for this card. I wanted something with a pop of color since the card was going to be black and white. I really want the “Bee Mine” stamp set but because I’m so impatient I decided to go ahead and use the free digital stamp of the bee and use the “bee happy” sentiment. I cut my bees with my Cricut Explore and I printed the sentiment with my printer.
As you can see in the picture below, my bee didn’t have a perfect black outline because of the way the Cricut cut it. I used my Copic pen to go over the edges to make the outline better. Then, I added the bees to my card with foam adhesive.
I finished off the card with a couple of sequins and voila!
That’s it for now, hope you guys liked my card! Don’t forget to check out The Lovely Pear on Facebook and Instagram!
