Karin has sweet Upon a Star inspiration for us today!

This design is so simply adorable! Karin featured the cute critters of Upon a Star with a simple Christmas tree. She created the little scene on an ink-blended Stitched Circle, then layered it on a Fancy Scalloped Circle. She used Gold Metallic cardstock to die cut the stars and Scripty Merry.

Thanks so much for inspiring us today, Karin!

Caly’s Starry Sky Swish n’ Pop Inspiration

Hi Friends! It’s Caly with you today, sharing an interactive card for the current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge!  The current theme uses the photo below as inspiration. This theme runs through Sunday September 19th at 11:59pm PT. We hope you’ll get the chance to participate before it’s over!

I was inspired by the image to create a sky scene.  So I water-colored a background to replicate the inspiration board using Daniel Smith watercolors.  Once it was dry, I splattered the panel with white paint to give it more interest to imitate stars.

While my background was drying, I stamped and colored images from the Super Star and Upon A Star sets.  I used Copic markers to color my images before die-cutting them out to begin my interactive mechanism for this card.

        Fox:  E11, E13, E15

        Mouse:  W0, W2, W4

        Bunny:  E40, E41, E42, E43

        Telescope:  C0, C3, C6

        Star:  Y00, Y15, YR23

        Blush: R30

I die-cut clouds using the Puffy Cloud Borders in both white cardstock and vellum to layer them for interest and to hide my Swish n’ Pop Pull-Tab mechanism.  Be sure to check out the Lawn Fawn YouTube channel to see how the mechanism is put together – it’s really easy!

I used a shooting star for my moving image and embossed the tail lines on vellum using white embossing powder.  Once my mechanism was put together, I attached my images to create my scene.

I finished today’s card by embossing a sentiment in white over black cardstock.  I love interactive cards and hope you like this one!  Thanks so much for visiting!  You still have a few days to participate and I hope you will make some time to create!

Thanks so much for sharing this beautiful inspiration, Caly!

Happy crafting, friends!
