Peek-a-boo seals

Time to use all those colored seals from the other day. Had this card in mind for a while and wanted to try it out. I made two and just used different patterned paper and a bit different mountain layout. All things Lawn Fawn except for the circle die which comes from My Favorite Things.

Heat embossing and watercoloring Wplus9 Ranunculus stamp set

I saw Dawn from Wplus9 watercolor this particular stamp set about a year ago and just HAD to have it. Last time I ordered from SSS it was available again and I finally got it. I immediately wanted to watercolor it with distress inks just as I had seen her do. With the video on repeat to pick up all the good tips, I tried out two panels. I was quite pleased with this first result. I loved coloring like that. Need to try it again (...and again... and again *smile*)
The image is stamped twice at different angles and then I heat embossed it. I used a ton of Distress Ink colors. The card is finished off with a stacked sentiment from Lawn Fawn. The bottom layer is done in black and placed a little off so that you get a drop shadow. I also added some sequins and clear droplets from Pretty Pink Posh.




Second version with slightly different color variation on the flowers.

Seal popup surprise card

I saw a video a year ago with the talented Nina-Marie Trapani and I was totally intrigued and had to try it out. I liked it so much so I had to do it again this year. I used the little Lawn Fawn seals on the front. The inside is done with distress inks and a 13Arts stencil.

Go check out the video for how to make them. Remember to crease the folds REALLY well. To get the first measurements correct I score the first lines in my paper trimmer. That helps the fold to be truly symmetrical. I use my bone folder for all the folds.

Trifold birthday card with flying elephants

I saw such a cute video with Nicole Sphor the other day with the new release from Mama Elephant with flying elephants on or with balloons. I don't have that stampset so I thought I would recreate it with what I have at hand. I dug out the Adorable elephants set from My Favorite Things and also a cute set from WPlus9 and went to town.

I used Bristol Smooth paper and stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink since I would be watercoloring this panel.

The whole panel colored. The clouds are done by sponging with distress ink in Peacock Feathers and Salty Ocean. I used a Lawn Fawn cloud border die cut card panel as a stencil.
