Karin’s Reveal Wheel Birthday Card

Click HERE to share your Card Sketch creativity! Your project should feature Lawn Fawn stamps, dies and papers. This challenge will run for 2 weeks and be open until Sunday, August 15th at 11:59PM ET.

It’s Karin‘s turn to inspire us with a beautiful birthday card!

Karin used the Card Sketch loosely to design a beautiful interactive card! She used the Reveal Wheel and Arc Frame Add-On as the arched element in the sketch and kept the rest of the design clean, simple and lovely.

Karin lightly inked the panel, then splattered on water. She created the pretty floral accents by combining die cuts from Acorn House and Spring Sprig. She used Cole’s ABCs cut from Gold Metallic cardstock to personalize this lovely design!

Thank you for sharing with us today, Karin!

A Beach Destination with Caly

Hi Friends! It’s Caly with you today!  The Travel Destination/Favorite Place Challenge is going strong.  I bet there are lots of places people are wishing they were at or could be soon!  Today’s card is beach-themed.  ANY nice beach will do. I shared on my blog on Monday about how naïve I am to traveling – it intimidates me! My kids have been begging to go anywhere with a beach and I hope we can soon!

My beach scene today includes images from the Life is Good and On the Beach sets.  I stamped and colored them with Copic markers to bring them to life.

Copic markers:
Reds:  R32, R35, R39
Oranges:  YR61, YR65, YR68
Yellows:  Y00, Y11, Y15
Greens:  G21, YG06, YG09
Teals:  BG10, BG11, BG13
Blues:  B01, B02, B05
Purples:  V01, V04, B05
Pinks:  [RV00, RV52, RV55], [RV30, RV42]
Browns:  [E50, E53], [E30, E31, E34, E35]
Grays:  C1, C3, C5

For my background, I ink-blended the sky with Cracked Pistachio and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide Inks.  I splattered it with some water droplets to give it some texture – but I love the soft glow it gives. 

On another panel, I ink-blended with Antique Linen Distress Oxide Ink. After die-cutting it with a Simple Stitched Hillside Borders die, I added some Gathered Twigs Distress Oxide Ink to give it shading at the top. I used the largest Outside In Stitched Rectangles die to add a decorative stitch around both ink-blended panels to give them more interest.

Last but not least, I added my images to the card to fill my sandy beach scene. I finished by attaching my sentiment, which is comprised of die-cut letters from the Cole’s ABCs set and an embossed sentiment from the Life is Good set. 

I hope you enjoyed this beach scene!  Thanks so much for visiting today!

Karin’s Notebook Inspired by Matilda!

We have reached the last weekend for our Inspired by a book, movie or song challenge, but there is still time to enter! You have until Sunday, April 4th at 11:59PM ET to add your projects to the challenge gallery HERE.

Karin is here today to share a cute way to add personality to a notebook, inspired by a favorite book!

Karin gives us some thoughts about her inspiration: “I have always loved the story about Matilda by Roald Dahl. I laugh extra hard at the part where the teachers dream of telling the parents of their student the truth about their children. I used the classic book cover as inspiration for a note book that I will use at work (if you don’t know already I am a high school teacher.”

Karin combined the girl from Bicycle Built for You with lots of books from Den Sweet Den to recreate the classic Matilda book cover. She added shading to patterned paper for the background. She added Cole’s ABCs to spell out “notes” to mimic the title on the book cover.

She used some cute Into the Woods Sticky Notes for adding encouraging messages!

Thanks so much for sharing this sweet inspiration with us today, Karin!
