MY VITAMIN SEA CARD

As I have already told my followers on Instagram (probably more than once! lol) that I love the ocean and everything about it. I also love whales and have been fortunate enough to see some in real life. They amaze me. ♥ So when I got invited to this hop, I knew right away I wanted to make a card with Picket Fence’s “A Dose Of Vitamin Sea” stamp set! I love not only the whale images but the great sentiments in it. I also got this holiday stamp set from Picket Fence that has Santas and penguins in it. Being the excited crafty girl that I am I showed both of them to my husband when they arrived and it was actually him that came up with the idea to combine those two sets! (I know, totally surprising to me, too! 😀 ) So, thank you, hubby! ♥

Here is my card:

Picket Fence A Dose Of Vitamin Sea Card 1

For the fontain I used WOW’s light blue Metalline First Frost Embossing Powder. I added a bit of sparkle to the watercolored water using an embossing pen and WOW’s Singing In The Rain Embossing Glitter.

I love how the penguin is floundering about in the fountain of the whale! They look like they have a blast, don’t they?

Let’s Toast with Lawn Fawn

Hello and welcome back!

I am just quickly saying “hi” today with this interactive card using Lawn Fawn’s Let’s Toast stamps and dies!

POPPIN’ UP TO SAY …

Lawn Fawn Let's Toast CardLawn Fawn Let's Toast Popped Up Card

I combined the Let’s Toast set with a tiny speech bubble die from Rawr! Isn’t that cute?

For the colors, I was inspired by the ongoing Lawnfawnatics challenge. I used pinks and lilac for the background and interpreted the gold-ish brush strokes on the inspirational picture as kraft.

I heat embossed a white heart onto the toaster twice to make it look like some kind of a 3-D logo that you sometimes find on electric devices. I would totally want such a toaster! 😀 😀

Thank you for stopping by. Have an amazing day! ♥

4 Cards With Blue Backgrounds

Hello and happy Sunday!

It’s all grey and rainy here today … Which makes it a perfect day for crafting and blogging! 😀

I made a couple of cards over the last days and it turned out they all have dark blue on the backgrounds! It wasn’t planned – I guess I just felt like using blue. Two cards mimic a blue background as water, the other two use blue to create a wintery wood scene.
