Lawn Fawn September Guest Designer~You Color My World

Hello there!  I'm back with one last set of colorful cards that I created as a guest designer for the Lawn Fawn blog.  I think these images and bright colors are so perfect for the back to school season.  :)

My first card features the adorable "Color My World" set.  I can't fully express how excited I was to finally get my hands on this little set.  I decided to stamp them repeatedly (13 times to be exact) and to color them to my heart's content.  They were really fun to color and since I didn't happen to buy the matching die, I discovered they are also pretty easy to cut out as well.

I thought crayons would make a great thank you card for teachers so I borrowed a sentiment from the Thank You Tags set which I heat embossed with white powder.  For the little borders above each crayon I found matching colors of ink and used the fun wavy stitched border from the Gnome Sweet Gnome set.  Don't these little guys just make you happy?


I couldn't resist making a second card while I had the crayon image out so this time I paired it with the Schoolhouse Backdrops to add lines to both my yellow and white papers.  A little punched border along the top completed my theme.  And the black chalkboard background? It came from Lawn Fawn's first Christmas paper collection called Peace, Love, Joy on sale HERE.  I love when I can re-purpose Christmas papers like that.  ;)


My last card uses some more favorites of mine:  The new puffy cloud border dies and the Party Animal stamp set!  Aren't they both completely irresistible?

For my clouds I sponged on some pale blue pigment ink along the bottom of each 1.25" high border piece to make the clouds stand out when stacked.  I had originally planned to add a cardstock panel down the center to ground my little bear, but when I got done inking up the clouds, I hated to cover them up.  For my balloons I taped pieces of coordinating thread to the back of each of them before adhering them to my card.  I have tried to tie them onto the little balloon knot in the past, but this way is so much easier and I think just as cute.


I hope I've inspired you to pull out some bright colors and play along today.  I would like to thank Kelly Marie and the Lawn Fawn team for having me these past three months--It's been a dream come true having an excuse to work with my favorite stamps some more.  :)
