Make a splash

Hi again!  I'm sharing this slimline card using a bunch of products from Lawn Fawn.  Loving the new slimline card dies since they allow room for a lot of images on a card.   These dies are perfect for scene building!  This scene shows some cute lawn fawn critters celebrating baby elephant's Birthday.  

To create this scene, I started by cutting a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock from the largest slimline die.  Next, using the hillside dies as a stencil, I ink blended the background mountains.  Then I used the hillside stencils to create the water and background.  

Next, the images were stamped in jet black ink and colored using copic markers.  White gel pen added for accents then the images were cut with the coordinating dies.  Waves, trees and bushes added for additional scene building elements.  The sentiment is from the offset sayings: birthday stamp set.  The "splash" was cut from Oliver's ABCs die and ink blended to create an ombre effect.  I added icicle stickes for sparkle.  The entire card was then mounted on a slimline card base.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I had a lot of fun creating this scene using these adorable images from Lawn Fawn!  Below is a list of products used to create this card.

Epcot themed Birthday card!

Hi Friends!  I have this slimline card using a bunch of sets from Waffle Flower Crafts to create a happy and colorful scene!  Earlier this year my family celebrated my daughter's Birthday at Disney World.  My favorite part of the trip was visiting Epcot world showcase.  This card shows all the different countries, Mexico, China, Japan, France and England.  I left a few out, because I didn't have enough room, but you get the idea.  The sparkle water was inspired by Mona Toth's card design.  

To start, I cut a slimline card base from the largest slimline die.  Then using Catherine pooler inks (grape crush, flirty fuchsia, pixie dust), I ink blended a purple sky on the top half of the panel.  The panel was then splattered with water and white paint.  Next, using Lime Rickey ink, I ink blended the bottom half of the panel which was then cut using the wavy border die.  Blue sparkle cardstock was ink blended using fiesta blue ink and cut using the same large slimline die.  The top panel (with the purple ink blending) was added to the bottom panel using foam squares.  

Next, I stamped the images from using versafine clair ink in nocturne and colored the images using Karin brush markers and a water brush.  The images were cut using the coordinating dies and adhered to the card front.  White gel pen used to fill in the sky with stars and added to the images for accents.  Red stickles added to the dragon and diamond stickles added to the Eiffel Tower for extra shine.
I mounted the card on a white 3.5 inch by 8.5 inch cardbase and that competes the card!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Hope you have a wonderful rest of your day!
