Hello crafty friends!
I am back from vacation, and it feels like a million years since I have been crafty! Although I was absolutely pooped after holiday, I really needed some creative therapy so I turned on the camera for another Come Craft With Me LIVE crafting sesh on Friday night. Thanks to everyone who joined me.
When I came home, there was an envelope of goodies waiting for me – from crafty Insta-friend Michelle Daigle. I managed to be the lucky winner of her Instagram giveaway and I won a Lawn Fawn ink pad and the Rooting for you stamp and die set. I decided to use them for my LIVE show.
I made a fun slider surprise card. I am not sure if that is actually what they are called but I am going to go with that for now! haha!
This is what the card look like normally – with lots of layers of die cutting to create a cloudy sky and a veggie patch. I used the lawn fawn simple stitched hillside border dies as well as the simple grassy hillsides dies and puffy cloud border dies. I reached for my distress inks to ink up the wite card. The veggie stamps are from the Lawn Fawn Rooting for You set – this is new to me – but lots of fun! I had to do a little mid-stream googling to get some colour inspiration for the vegetables. LOL.
I used the Lawn Fawn Ocean Wave accents to create little wavy lines in the soil so i could nestle the veggies in there. Fun, huh? I thought the front looked a bit bare without some critters, so I added three cute birdies from the Big Scripty words set. Of course, the magic happens when you pull the fun ribbon at the top!
PEEKABOO! Look a this cutie! I added the sweet bunny from the Mama Elephant page huggers set (coloured lightly with copic markers) – and when you pull the tag at the top (which incidentally is from Studio Katia) then the little bunny pops up out of the grass! SO FUN! Look at his sweet face!
For the tag, I used a new stamp set that I bought on holiday, its from Woodware and it has lots of bold words in it. I liked the way the HELLO stamp looked – although I was torn between HELLO and HUGS. I decided to go with HELLO and then pair this up with the ‘friend’ stamp from the Mama Elephant Sunday Sentiments set.
So there you have it! Thanks for taking a peep! At the moment I am working on some collaboration projects with Chibitronics, so keep an eye out for those coming soon.
