Somewhere Over the Rainbow

Summer 15 Inspiration Week

Thinking About You Rainbow Card

The two dies being revealed today on the Lawn Fawn Blog work SO WELL together! The rainbow is so fun and gives you tons of pieces when cut from a bunch of colored card stocks. You are easily able to create 7 cards when cutting this die from 7 different colors and mixing the pieces up! I just love it! It just makes me happy!

I made a similar card when I first got my hands on this Year 5 Stamp Set and it has been used a lot in advertising this release, so I thought this would be the perfect time to show how that card was made.


Thank you so much for tuning in! Have a great day and enjoy the hop!!

My first Lawn Fawn video has magically appeared this holiday season, and I really hope you love it! I’m not even going to describe it… just watch! Be amazed! Enjoy!

What did you think?!

My second card featured on the Lawn Fawn Blog today is a simple Hanukkah card. I first used some Tim Holtz Distress Inks in various shades of blue to make the ombre background. I cut it with the largest die from the Small Stitched Rectangles Lawn Cuts and used the Happy Hanukkah Stamp Set to heat emboss the menorah and sentiment in Ranger Liquid Platinum Embossing Powder. I took a Neenah 110# Solar White card base and stamped the Star of David in Simon Says Stamp Soft Navy Ink around the edges. I popped up the rectangle card front with some 3M Foam Adhesive and that was that! Beautiful!

I really hope you’re enjoying the holiday inspiration, and let me know what you think of my first video!

Snow-Globe Stampendous Penquins Card

It’s Holiday Time!!! To thank Die Cuts with a View (or DCWV as most of you know it) for featuring my card on their Instagram the other day, I wanted to do another card using another one of their 6×6 paper stacks.

I promise this card will WOW any receiver! I wanted to allow the sequins inside the card to have the ability to move giving the illusion of a snow-globe and I think I accomplished just that.

I started out by stamping the Stampendous Penguin Pair Stamp that I just got from Michaels. (I’m really sorry to add that I could not find a store link ANYWHERE on the internet for this stamp. If I would have known this, I would have used a different stamp. Any Christmas character stamp would look fabulous with this type of card technique.)

After stamping them, I colored the pair with my COPIC Markers resulting in some really beautiful blends. I used C1 and C3 for the white portions of their bodies, C5, C7, and 100 Black for the black parts of their bodies, all of the YG group listed in my supplies at the bottom of this post for two different green looks for their accessories, and R22, R24, and R29 for the red portions of the accessories.

They turned out absolutely adorable in my book.

I then used 4 sheets of the new Heavy-Weight Neenah Cardstock and cut circle windows with one of my Spellbinders Classic Circles Dies in each piece. I then made a sandwich starting with one piece of the cardstock, a sheet of acetate, two more sheets of the cardstock, sequins, the penguin piece, the last sheet of cardstock, and finally a beautiful gold foil sheet of paper from the DCWV Foil Solids 6×6 Stack.

I took some pictures during the assembly.

The “sandwich style” allows the sequins enough room to move, but not enough to escape out of the card.

I then adhered this thick panel to a piece a Bazill Blueberry Sour Cardstock  which makes the gold foil really POP beautifully. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the same Kelly Purkey Cheers Stamp Set that I’ve used in a bunch of my cards lately.

I just adore this card. It looks so complicated to create, but it is actually pretty easy and looks so clean and polished. Let me know what you think!
