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. :)
