Surf’s Up! – Simon Says Stamp Good Vibes

What a fabulous release from Simon Say Stamp! I received some more goodies last week and I have been just itching to create!  

Hi everyone! Sorry I was missing in action lately. I had a couple teeth removed on Monday (mainly because I refuse to get a root canal) and it really took a toll on me. I didn’t get motivation to move until about Thursday. It’s still pretty sore but I wanted to play with my new goodies so bad! Now I need to find my mojo lol… ok … onto the card! 

For this card I’m using the Surf’s Up stamp set. I embossed my image with white embossing powder and then masking areas as I went, I ink blended my image. I used Broken China and Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide for the water, Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide for the sand, and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink for the sky. I used the coordinating die cut to cut out the circle.

On a piece of Neenah white cardstock, I stamped my images with copic friendly ink then colored with copic markers. I also used the coordinating die to cut these out as well. I love having coordinating dies with my images. I don’t have a lot of room on my desk anymore and my diecutting machine takes up less space then my Scan N Cut. The coordinating dies are an investment but I think they are well worth it. 

For my back panel, I used a piece Fog cardstock and stamped the Vacation Time sentiment in Versamark ink throughout the cardstock. Then diecut with the Stitched Rectangle Die. This was added to a piece of Neenah white cardstock. 

I’ll have more inspiration coming soon from the Simon Says Stamp Good Vibes release!

How to Create a Reveal Wheel- Lawn Fawn

Welcome everyone! Today’s card is going to be creating a Reveal Wheel card with a beautiful sunset. Lots of pictures and Video included! Keep reading for some EXCITING NEWS!! 
Lawn Fawn has some amazing new products out right now! Not only are they fun to make but they are fun to give to people. I made a few of these styles of cards for teachers and they loved them! Typically, when creating an interactive card, I will create a mock up first. So using scrap paper or even just white paper to get the feel of the design and where I should start.
For this card, I ‘m going to start with ink blending. I’m going to use Bristol Smooth cardstock for my front panel because it blends the distress inks and oxide inks nicely. Starting at the top, I’ll ink blend Fired Brick, Candied Apple, Spiced Marmalade and Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide ink. This panel I will diecut using the Reveal Wheel die. I will also cut out my Reveal Wheel back piece and wheel from just white cradstock.
While my inks were out, I will take another piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock and ink blend Cracked Pistachio and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide ink and diecut using the Stitched Waves die.
From here, I’m going to get all of my diecutting out of the way so I’ll cut a circle from Sunflower cardstock with the Stitched Circle Die. This will create my sun. I will also diecut a piece of Paper Bag cardstock with the Stitched Hillside Die. This will create my sand for my front panel. I can go ahead and trim down my sand and waves to fit my front panel and figure out how I want them arranged on the card.
Before I add any adhesive, I’m going to stamp the bird silhouettes from the Life Is Good stamp set in embossing ink and heat emboss in black embossing powder. I will do the same for the sentiment above my Reveal Wheel window. 
I’m going to add my sentiments to my wheel using the Reveal Wheel sentiments stamp set. At this point, I can go ahead and assemble my Reveal Wheel. All that’s left to do are my images. 
I’m going to using the palm trees from the Life Is Good stamp set. I will stamp two trees onto Neenah White cardstock 80 lb with Lawn Fawn Black ink which is copic friendly. Once I finished some simple copic coloring, I can go ahead and diecut them from the coordinating die set. Now I can add my palm tress to my beach scene. Spin the wheel and you can see all these amazing sentiments! 
I hope you give the Reveal Wheel a try! They are really a blast to create and can’t wait to do more! 
Here is a process video you can view down below or HERE on my Youtube channel. 
Alright …. did you notice anything ….? Yep! The Lawn Fawn watermark on my pictures!!! I will be creating videos for Lawn Fawn!! Talk about over-the-moon exciting!!!! My videos will be on the Lawn Fawn Blog and Youtube Channel! Pinch me! At the time I did this particular video, I hadn’t been asked yet so that’s why I hadn’t referenced anything but going forward I will be. A big thank you to Lawn Fawn for inviting me !

SugarPea Designs – Dare to Dream

Welcome everyone! It has been so amazing guest designing for SugarPea Designs these last few months! They have such amazing products to work with. Thank you so much SugarPea Designs for inviting me ! 

For my card today, I’m using the new Dare To Dream stamp set. I started out by stamping my image onto Bristol Smooth cardstock with Versamark Ink. Then I heat embossed with silver embossing powder.

Next, I ink blended Salty Ocean, Wilted Violet and Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide inks. I started in the center and worked my way out blending. Then I spritzed with water and dabbed with a paper towel. I also wiped the embossed image off with a dry cloth to make the silver pop again. I attached my ink blended panel to an A2 size notecard.

I used the Dreams SugarCut and diecut from white cardstock three times and from Silver Glitter cardstock once. I layered up my sentiment to add some dimension to my card. I also stamped the beginning part of the sentiment from the Dare to Dream stamp set onto black cardstock and heat embossed with silver embossing powder. I cut it down to a thin strip and added to my card.
I love dreamcatchers and thought this dreamy background was perfect for it. I hope you enjoyed it too! Thank you so much for joining me today!

Fairy Friends – Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #31

Hi everyone! I have wanting this stamp set for forever and I finally broke down and ordered it! It arrived on Saturday and I couldn’t wait to play with it! It was perfect for the current Lawn Fawn challenge.
I started out by die cutting the Stitched Hillside die from Noble Fir cardstock. I also die cut some grass from Perfectly Plaid Rainbow paper pack with the Grassy Borders Die. I trimmed down my grass and lined it behind my hillsides. I love these two different greens together! I was in the mood for green so I added a piece of green paper from the Watercolor Wishes paper pack to the background for my sky.
Next, I stamped out some images from the Fairy Friends stamp set onto Neenah White cardstock using Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink. Then colored with my copic markers and die cut using the coordinating dies. 
I adhered my images to my grassy scene. How sweet are these fairies?! I’m so in love with them! 
My sentiment is also from the Fairy Friends stamp set. I stamped it onto Cilantro cardstock with clear embossing ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. Then die cut out with the Banners die and adhered to the front of the card. My front panel is all finished and I can add it to an A2 size cardbase. I cannot wait to make more cards with this set!!! Next on my wish list is the Frosty Fairy Friends! 
I apologize I did not write down my copic colors because I was just playing around and really liked how they came out! 
Here is a board I created if you would like to save this idea to Pinterest!
