Christy’s Let’s BBQ Card!

Hey friends, it’s Christy here with another take on our Mood Board & Color Inspiration Challenge! This time I decided to go the more masculine route, with Let’s BBQ. I stamped my images, colored them in with Copic markers, making sure to represent all the colors in the sidebar of the inspiration photo, plus a few, like red and yellow, that were in the image as well.

For my focal panel, I trimmed down a piece of light blue cardstock to represent the sky with the Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables. Then I added a hill with the Stitched Hillside Borders and grass with the Grassy Border. I stamped a sentiment across the top of the panel in Black Licorice ink. I like that this greeting can work for a number of occasions, from birthday, to father’s day, to retirement.

I popped my images up with foam tape, then layered the focal panel on top of a yellow patterned paper from the Really Rainbow 6×6 petite paper pack. Then I used another piece of Really Rainbow paper with a diagonal rainbow stripe to pull all the colors I’d used together. I die-cut that with the Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables and added it to my card base, then popped up the layered focal panel in the center.

I finished up the card with some stamping on the inside as well, which you can check out in the video on my YouTube channel, Christy Gets Crafty.

Samantha’s Jawsome Underwater Scene!

We have Samantha M with us today to share a totally “jawsome” card to spark your creativity for our Mood Board & Color Inspiration challenge!

Samantha did some beautiful ink blending to create the underwater background. The water splatters give it the fun look of bubbles! For the card base, she stamped waves and bubbles and duh-nuh in a pattern using Narwhal ink.

Samantha’s coloring adds so much detail to the critters and sand castle from Duh-nuh, Fintastic Friends and Life is Good! This card makes me smile!

Thank you Samantha for sharing this wonderful inspiration today!

For this super fun scene Samantha started with Watercolor Wishes papers in purple and aqua for the sky and Simple Stitched Wavy Border waves. She layered on another wavy border in Paper Bag for the sand. Then she combined beachy images from On the Beach and Life is Good to create this sweet scene! How cute are those crabs holding ice cream cones from the Party Animal set! The finishing touch is the greeting from Mermaid for You!
