Popup card with Newton's birthday flutter, day 9, 30 day coloring challenge

I loved taking this stamp set from Newton's Nook and making it into a popup card, the sentiment fits perfectly for that. The pop-ups are created with Lawn Fawn dies. The cloud and grass border dies are also Lawn Fawn as well as the patterned paper.

This card is day 9 of the 30 day coloring challenge.

Watercolor flowers, day 7, 30 day coloring challenge

I saw a card from a previous 30 day coloring challenge and it was so beautifully simple in the design so I had to try. I stamped the pionee from Altenew with Versafine black ink. I then masked off the flower to stamp the leaves and the sentiment.

I then watercolored with one pink and one green color of my Zig markers and used a waterpen to spread the color. I'm finding it very challenging to put the shading in the right place. Practise, practise, practise.

Top pick on #41 Inky Paws challenge

My jaw dropped. I was picked as one of 2 top picks for Newton's Nook #41 Inky Paws challenge for this card:

Thanks so much! Had really fun playing!

Feel better, day 6, 30 day coloring challenge

Saw a card on Pinterest and just had to try it. My dad has got a really bad "man cold" so I need to send him some happy thoughts!

I started by white heat embossing on Canson watercolor paper and then coloring the band aids with Distress Inks. The little critters I colored with my Zigs.

I then die cut the panel and also cut a smaller panel with the same die but shortening it so I could use it as a banner across the card. I die cut the heart shape and the heat embossed the sentiment.

The panels were then mounted on a black mat and then on to the card base. It's now I'm realizing that the image behind one of the die cut hearts becomes very distracting so I put the heart back but I coat it with Wink of Stella to try and get some definition.

The inside have stamped sentiments with the last of the colored images. The tissue box ended up in a wonky place but that's just because I dropped a die cut with glue there with the "wrong" side down of course. Ah well!!

Feel better, Lawn Fawn

Get well soon, Lawn Fawn
