Ocean Scene Reveal Wheel

Welcome everyone! Recently my husband and daughter took a 7-day trip to St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands. I stayed back with our son but they sent me amazing, breath-taking pictures! One of them was a picture of beach and the gorgeous shades of blue in the water. I tried to recreate a card inspired by this image.

Breath-taking right? I’ve never been to the ocean but this is exactly what I hope to see some day.

For my card, I masked off the top half of a piece of Neenah Solar White card stock and ink blended Salty Ocean. After removing the mask and placing on top of my sky, I ink blended Chipped Sapphire.

I ink blended a few more strips of card stock using Chipped Sapphire and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide and die cut them using the Stitched Simple Wavy Border. I also die cut these pieces with the Reveal Wheel die. This way I could layer the front of my card.

I added palm trees using the Tropical Background using Paper Bag and Cilantro card stock. I know there wasn’t palm trees in the original picture but the bottom of my card needed something. I also added some cute little kitties from the Keep On Swimming stamp/die set.

I have a little mountain in the background that I got from the Ahoy Matey Stamp set.

To create the reveal wheel I used the Reveal Wheel Die, Reveal Wheel Friends & Family Sentiments, & Reveal Wheel Essential Shapes Templates.

So what do you think? Did I come close? I love the different shades of water.

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration. This is a perfect time to create an interactive card and enter it in the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #58 – Interactive.

Kitty Surprise! Lawn Fawn

Welcome everyone! I have a fun surprise card to share with you. In most of my experiences, cats do not like baths. So to pair this adorable cat in a bath tub with this sentiment makes me giggle.


I have a tutorial that you can view down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.


I stamped and colored images from Rub A Dub Dub, Say What Pets and Meow You Doin stamp sets. I used the coordinating dies to cut out the images, holding them in place with post it tape.

The fun background was created by diecutting Mermaid card stock using the Stitched Speech Bubble Backdrop and then once again with the Large Stitched 4 Bar Rectangle. I added cute sentiments from the Critter Chatter stamp set with Peacock Ink for contrast.

I used the Let’s Toast Pull Tab Add On to have my kitty popping up from the bath tub. Instead of using white cardstock, I die cut the element from Acetate. This is especially helpful because my kitty is so small, you won’t see the interactive portion.

I layered my panel onto Peacock cardstock with foam tape and then adhered to a white card base.

The sentiment is from Birthday Before & After stamp set. I heat embossed it in white onto Guava card stock.

This makes such a fun birthday card, don’t ya think?

Scallop Box Card Pop Up & Rainbow Add On

Making interactive cards is so much fun! Today’s post/video is creating a Scallop Box Card Pop Up with the Rainbow Add On.


You can view the tutorial down below or HERE on my Youtube channel. I explain step by step how to put this box together.


I start by coloring in my images. I’m using A Little Sparkle stamp set and the Fairy Friends stamp set. I stamped in Jet Black Ink onto Lawn Fawn White card stock. Then once colored, I used the coordinating die to cut out my images.

For my box card I used Mermaid card stock.

I created my own stencil by using the Puffy Clouds border die with white card stock. You could also use Acetate but white card stock was handy for me at the time I was creating.

Creating the rainbow was the most fun. I die cut the Rainbow from white card stock using the Rainbow Add On. To color the rainbow I dragged an ink pad across each strip. I used Bubblegum, Peach Fuzz, Butter, Celery Stick and Fresh Lavender. I also traced the rainbow onto some white card stock and cut out with scissors. This created a base for me to attach my rainbow strips to.

I used Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide to stencil on some clouds to my panel pieces and adhered my box together.

To add all of my fun images, I attache them to a skinny strip of Acetate and added to the inserts with double side adhesive.

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration!

Lighthouse Magic Picture Changer

Welcome everyone ! I’m so glad you are joining me today. I have a fun magic picture changer card to share using some new stamp sets from Lawn Fawn.


I have a video showing how I created this card that you can view down below or HERE on my Youtube Channel. Supplies will be listed in the video description and also at the end of this post.


I love creating scenes with my magic picture changers and Lawn Fawn carries some amazing Before & After stamp sets. I am trying to stretch my stamps a little and create a scene using a regular stamp set. For my card today, I’m using Lawn Fawn SET SMOOTH SAILING Clear Stamps and Dies ZLFSS( SSS ),Lawn Fawn LIFE IS GOOD Clear Stamps LF680( SSS ) and Lawn Fawn SET BUTTERFLY KISSES Clear Stamps and Dies LF19BK( SSS ). I actually only used the clouds from Butterfly Kisses because I liked the variety in size.

My scene is going to change from just the lighthouse on the hill to the lighthouse shining it’s light out over the water. I used Lawn Fawn YETI Pigment Ink Pad Fawndamentals LF1003( SSS )for my light to shine.

My background is ink blended using Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink Pad CHIPPED SAPPHIRE Ranger tdo55884( SSS ), Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink Pad BLUEPRINT SKETCH Ranger tdo55822( SSS ) and Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink Pad SALTY OCEAN Ranger TDO56171( SSS ) Distress Oxide inks. I added clouds to the background by creating my own stencil with the Lawn Fawn PUFFY CLOUD BORDERS Lawn Cuts LF915( SSS ).

The waves I die cut from Lawn Fawn BLUE JAY Cardstock LF1123( SSS ) with the Lawn Fawn STITCHED SIMPLE WAVY BORDERS Die Cuts LF1984( SSS ) die and I added the Lawn Fawn SANDY BEACH ACCENTS Die Cuts LF1980( SSS ) so I could tuck one of my boats in the waves.

Creating magic picture changer scenes are so addicting and fascinating!

The cute critters in the boats also come from the Lawn Fawn SET SMOOTH SAILING Clear Stamps and Dies ZLFSS( SSS ) stamp set. I paper pieced the sails using the Lawn Fawn REALLY RAINBOW SCALLOPS 6×6 Petite Paper Pack LF1860( SSS ).

I forgot to take a picture but I also have a sentiment stamped on the inside that reads ” I’m Here For You”.

Hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration!

On The Beach Center Picture Window – Lawn Fawn

Welcome everyone! I had a ton of fun creating this beach card using the Center Picture Window die from the Spring 2019 release from Lawn Fawn.


I have a video explaining all the details of this card that you can view down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.

The center picture window creates this fun pop up window scene on the inside of your card. I decided to create a beach scene for mine. I used images from the On The Beach which I stamped in Jet Black ink on Lawn Fawn White card stock. Then colored with my copic markers and cut out with the coordinating die.

Copic colors used are: E37, YR27, YR68, YR21; E79, E77, E74; RV14, RV23; BG49, BG43; YG23, YG03; E57, E35, E33; W2, W0

My card base is created using Mermaid card stock and the Center Picture Window die. I thought the Mermaid card stock was a fun pool color for my scene.

The inside panels were created using the Stitched Cloud Backdrop die and cut out with the Center Picture Window Add On. My beach is created by die cutting Kraft card stock using the hills from the Shadow Box die and lightly ink blending Walnut ink on the top. Then I added splatters of ink for texture.

I also included in my scene some palm trees from the Hammock & Trees die set. I used Cilantro, Paper Bag and Chocolate Bar card stock for my trees.

When all my coloring and die cutting was complete, I added my images to the panels and trimmed off the excess.

While creating this scene, I was thinking of a bunch of ideas for this window. Even though I just have waves in the background, you could add sail boats and/or fish. Just wait until the holidays come! Hope cute is this going to be ?!

For the front of the card, I used the Outside In Stitched Speech Bubble cut from Peacock card stock. I heat embossed the sentiment and added to the front. I actually had a different plan in mind when I created the speech bubble but it didn’t work out os I just added a palm tree and coconut drink.

School gets out this week and I cannot wait to give this to one of the teachers !

I hope you enjoyed today’s project ! I want to make a bunch of these fun scenes!

Be sure to check out the video HERE as it explains things so much better. You can pin any of these pictures to you Pinterest for future reference.

Here are the supplies I used for my card.
