A Cute Lawn Fawn Scene

 Hello there! I had such fun creating a cute scene for the current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge.


Here is my first take, and probably not my last:


 The background is inked with Salty Ocean, Tumbled Glass and Lucky Clover Distress Oxide inks. The images are colored with Copic markers.


This is the list of sets I used:
butterfly kisses flip-flop stamps + lawn cuts
elphie selfie flip-flop stamps + lawn cuts
gleeful gardens stamps + lawn cuts
center picture window card (banner + clouds)
grassy border

Thank you for stopping by today!

99 Red Balloons - Lawn Fawnatics Challenge

 Happy weekend! After my daughter shared her card yesterday, I am back with my card for the current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge. We love being inspired by fun challenges and enjoy creating together. 


My first ever favorite song I can remember was 99 Red Balloons from Nena when I was in Kindergarten. Of course, I loved the original, German version that only says 99 Balloons and nothing about red - but for my card it was perfect:


The balloons were stamped, masked, stamped and so on. Then I masked off the rectangle and inked the background with Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide Ink. I added a red line with a marker around that rectangle and colored my balloons with Copics. Not sure how I like my try to make them look translucent by indicating the shapes with a pencil! I added highlights with a white gel pen and adhered my panel to the card base. After I had stamped and heat-embossed the sentiment onto a strip of blue cardstock, I adhered it together with tiny star sequins.


Having the song in your head now? You are welcome! Thank you so much for stopping by, have a wonderful weekend and happy Easter!

A Card Made by Alyssa

 Hello! Here is Alyssa. I really liked the idea and made a card for the current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge inspired by the book Bliss Bakery, one of my favorite book series. This challenge is a wonderful inspiration!


Here is my card:


This sleeping gnome was required for a recipe in the first book. He had to whisper the secret of time into the dough. And every time a magic ingredient is put into the bowl, there are these blue bolts. I liked that the Bliss family wanted to help others with their magic recipes. 

These are the stamp sets and dies that I used:

milk and cookies (cookies, cookies tin)
bugs and kisses (jar)
life is good (water in jar)
cole's abcs (letters)

I hope you like my card!

Bye,
Alyssa
