Mimi’s Clever Chemistry-Themed Card

We invite you to share your Color Inspiration projects by linking up your photos HERE! Your project should feature Lawn Fawn stamps, dies, stencils and papers and use the inspiration colors. This is the last weekend for this challenge which will be open until Sunday, September 18 at 11:59PM ET.

Mimi put her amazing creativity to good use making this chemistry-themed design! And of course, she used all the rainbow shades of the Color Inspiration! She used the Beary Rainy Day bears, leaving their raincoats white to serve as lab coats! So clever. Be sure to check out the supply list below for all the sets that Mimi combined to create this fun scene.

The great sentiment along with the flasks and test tubes are from the Science of Love set.

Below, Mimi shares the steps to make this chemistry lab scene.

To create the blackboard:

-I die cut 2 medium Mini Slimline stackables, one with Lawn Fawn black licorice cardstock and the other with white. I inked blended the edges of the white cardstock with Vintage Photo distress oxide ink. I cut out the inside out to create the frame for the blackboard.

Chemistry images on the blackboard are from Plan on It: School (calculator, mini flask, atom) Plan on It: Spring Cleaning (bubble trio, recycle image) Just Add Glitter (ruler) stamp sets.

-I heat embossed all the images with white embossing powder and colored in with colored pencils.

Chemistry formulas made from trimming the honeycomb die from Hive Five Kit Honeycomb Shaker Gift Tag set and adding letters around.

Molecule made from the bubble trio (Plan on it: Spring Cleaning) and connecting them with a white gel pen.

Bunsen burner apparatus made using the net handle from Butterfly Kisses Flip Flop, flame from S’more the Merrier and the burner from the rake from You Autumn Know stamp sets

-Stamped and colored flask/test tube images from Science of Love in rainbow colors.

Heat embossed the sentiments with white embossing powder.

Test tube rack was made using the laptop die from Pop-Up Desk die set.

-Added a connecting tube (die cut from Screen Time wire) between the blue and purple flasks.

-Stamped and colored bears from Beary Rainy Day. Kept their tops white to look like lab coats

Eyeglasses from Dad + Me.

Thanks so much Mimi for this amazing inspiration! And for sharing your brilliant combinations to make your ideas come to life on this card.


Don’t forget, it’s the last weekend for this challenge! We will be back Monday a new challenge!

Christy’s Beary Rainy Day Scene

We hope you enjoy today’s inspiration and join us for the Create a Scene challenge! We can’t wait to see your creativity! This challenge will be open until Sunday, May 1 at 11:59PM ET. 

Hey friends, it’s Christy with another card for our Create a Scene Challenge! I’ve created a few cheerful cards recently using the Beary Rainy Day stamp set, but this time I wanted to go in a darker direction for someone who might be having a rough time. I don’t have enough cards like that in my stash for when a situation that calls for one suddenly comes up. So, I combined it with the sweet little Here for You Bear cub (a recent free gift with purchase) and some mushrooms from Oh Gnome! and Gleeful Gardens. I stamped the images in Jet Black Ink, colored them with Copic markers, and trimmed them out with the matching dies.

I created my stormy scene by masking off the bottom of a panel of Bristol Smooth Surface Cardstock with Post-it Tape. I blended on Hickory Smoke and Black Soot Distress Oxide Inks for the ground. Then I repositioned my mask and blended the same colors for the sky. Then I used the Rainy Sky Stencil to add some Fairy Dust Stencil Paste raindrops. I also cut two pieces of Noble Fir Cardstock with the Slimline Grassy Hillside Borders (you could use the regular length, I just don’t own them), and blended a bit more Black Soot at the bottom of each to darken them up.

I cut down those pieces with the Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables and popped the background onto a Storm Cloud card base with foam tape. Then I added the grass and images with liquid glue. I adhered an Everyday Sentiment Banner in the top right corner and finished the card with a bit of Stardust Stickles.

I also finished off the inside of the card, which you can check out in the video tutorial on my YouTube Channel, Christy Gets Crafty!

Thank you so much for sharing this beautifully thoughtful card with us today, Christy!

Have a happy, crafty weekend, everyone!
