Jessica’s So Smooth Card!

Good morning! Jess here with a card for our current Color Inspiration Mood Board challenge! I absolutely LOVE the colors in this mood board plus the gorgeous flecks of gold! I decided they’d be perfect for a punny smoothie card!

To start I stamped the images from So Smooth onto white cardstock with Clear Embossing ink and heat-embossed them with gold embossing powder. I colored them with Copic markers, die-cut them with the coordinating dies, and added a few accents with a white gel pen. I also stamped my sentiment from So Smooth onto black cardstock and heat-embossed it with gold embossing powder before trimming it down to a thin label. Then I colored a scrap piece of white cardstock to resemble a smoothie to use as the background for my blender shaker.

Next I used the same Copic refills and added drops of color on a piece of Yupo paper. I used a plastic bristle paintbrush to resemble the mood board photo. Once the alcohol ink was dry I brushed a little liquid glue onto the alcohol ink and pressed gold foil over it. I let the glue dry and then brushed off the excess foil leaving behind a few sparkly, shimmery bits over the alcohol ink background!

Then I die-cut the blender from the Yupo background and adhered acetate behind the opening. I applied a layer of foam tape around the opening and added in a few of the stamped and colored images, pink beads, and a little chunky glitter. I adhered my smoothie background to the foam tape and then turned the panel over and inlaid the blender over the acetate to create my shaker.

Finally I arranged all my images around the blender and behind the sentiment and adhered them with liquid glue. I added the sentiment with foam mounting tape. To finish I added Spectrum Noir clear sparkle to the glass and added a layer of Nuvo crystal glaze so that the glass would really shine!

And that’s my card! You have one more weekend to get crafty with your mood board creations and I can’t wait to see what you create! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic day! –Jess

Franci’s Otterly Adorable Card!

Hello there! Franci here with you today with an otterly cute card inspired by the current Color Inspiration Mood Board challenge! The current challenge will be open until Sunday February 17th at 11:59PM ET. I hope you will join us!

To make this card, I started with a Dotted Rectangle panel and die cut the heart with an Outside In Stitched Heart to create the window. I splattered gold paint on a lilac Watercolor Wishes panel and layered it behind the heart.

Next, I stamped the cute Winter Otter with Jet Black ink, colored with Copic markers and used the coordinating die to cut it out. After adding some cute details with white gel pen I attached the little otter with foam adhesive to the center of the heart! To finish my card, I stamped the sentiment added some sequins and a gold glitter heart!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Samantha’s Year Seven Piñata Shaker Card!

Hey everyone, Samantha here with a shaker card inspired by the current Color Inspiration Mood Board Challenge! The inspiration colors are just so beautiful. I love the mix of the dusty pinks, purple and neutrals. With this bold palette I decided to create a fun interactive birthday card.

The piñata from the Year 7 stamp set is so much fun to color, and I love the confetti accents too. All of the different Lawn Fawn Stackables die cuts make creating shaker cards a whole lot easier. You are able to die cut your shapes out of the different materials and layer them quickly.  I used a mixture of different colorful sequins in my shaker that complimented the palette.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Please be sure to check out the Color Inspiration Mood Board Challenge. There is so much inspiration from the design team and the current entries. You still have time to participate, we really look forward to seeing what you create!
I hope you have a wonderful day!


We hope you have an amazing, crafty weekend!
