Yellow Blossoms

Yellow Challenge
Kim's Stampin' Patch on Facebook

A challenge on her Facebook page to use yellow! Not really that hard because it such a beautiful color but it sure hard sometimes to photograph...  I also was so inspired by this paper being so soft bringing spring to the door step.
My yellows are Butter and Sunflower Ink from Lawn Fawn. Harvest Gold and Ocean Tides card -stock from PTI, American Crafts/ Dear Lizzy: Blossom Patterned Paper. Ink to Paper: Blossoming Branches, Penned Elegance, and Edgers Stamps and Dies; Soft Stone and Weathervane Ink.

This my entry for the clean and simple entry CASology Blog Card challenge. Tea! Ok admittedly I am a coffee drinker and follow the Coffee Loving Papercrafters on Facebook...but once in awhile nice sip is good!
So the saying says: 'A warm cup of tea can diminish all the troubles that may be'
For my card I used PTI: Tea for Two; Tea for Two Additions; Berry Sorbet Ink and Card-stock, Weathervane  Ink , Soft Stone Ink, Harvest Gold

Bouquet Backdrop

Ink to Paper
Weekend Challenge
Use Feb 2020 Release Products
For my card I used the Bouquet Backdrop and the Chain Frame. The backdrop is a solid floral die with no companion stamp. I used an brilliant technique seen from a video I saw on the Foiled Fox; I did same by taking a Copic line pen...O.1 tip Black then draw an loose outline.Next it was inked using PTI inks in the Pinks and Greens. Then I inked a Pink back ground, layering the chain die in some glitter paper for some extra sparkle.This entire layer is popped up on some Bitty Big paper.

Simply Easter


Lawn Fawnatics
Bring It Back  Challenge  #71

The idea here was to use some older stamps sets b/c we all know they are still really cute and well loved! I decided to go with Easter... For this card I used the Inside Out Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Die to create a meshed background with the plain card stock melding the LF Gummy Bear patterned paper. It always fun to mix match the Lawn Fawn stamps.
