Hey everyone, Christy here with a quick and easy card inspired by our latest Mood Board Challenge. My first card was inspired by both the beautiful photos and color palette. This time I decided to think outside the box, or rather, the boxes themselves.
I had also just gotten my hands on my favorite set of the new release, You’re Claw-some, and even though I am loving all these super fun interactive cards I’m seeing with it, I wanted to challenge myself to use it in a different, simpler way.
I stamped all my images and colored them with Copics, keeping the bears very neutral so my unicorn would stand out. Then I layered them each on a Cross-Stitched Square die cut from Watercolor Wishes paper, leaving one for my sentiment. I popped those squares up on a white Stitched Rectangle Stackables panel, and layered that over a sheet of Perfectly Plaid Rainbow paper die cut with the Zig Zag Rectangle. Then I added the whole thing to a white standard notecard. Quick, simple, easy, and cute.
You still have a few days left to enter our challenge! Hope to see your project there.
To start I blended Wilted Violet, Broken China, and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide inks onto a piece of watercolor paper and spritzed it with Perfect Pearls spray for a little shimmer. I trimmed down the panel and adhered it to white card base. Next I stamped the flamingo from Flamingo Together onto Copic-friendly cardstock with Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink and colored him with Copic markers. I also added some clear sparkle over his body for extra shine. I die-cut him with the coordinating dies and set him aside while I put the card together.
I used the Ocean Wave Borders die to die cut light blue cardstock and then stamped the sentiment from Flamingo Together with Versamark ink and heat-embossed it with white embossing powder. I adhered the waves to the water-colored background and then used foam mounting tape to adhere my flamingo to the scene. I finished the card with a sprinkling of clear iridescent sequins!
I hope this gives you some ideas on how to use the color palette for our current challenge! Have a wonderful weekend and happy crafting!
The sloth from the Hang in There stamp set was the perfect animal to hang off of the Scripty Hello die cut. This sloth would be an adorable addition to any of the Lawn Fawn Scripty die cut sayings! I layered my pieces on polka dot embossed white cardstock, and added a strip of paper from Let’s Polka in the Meadow to the bottom of card for additional pattern.
