Card #4 Large

Colourful Bats! – Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #146

Hi friends! Today’s card is for the Lawn Fawnatics challenge #146, “Colour Inspiration!”

As soon as I saw the colours for this colour inspiration challenge, I immediately knew I wanted to do a sunset/sky-themed card! Knowing this, I looked through my stash of Lawn Fawn products to figure out what sets I wanted to use, and I found the perfect set – the Fangtastic Friends and Fangtastic Friends Add-on stamp sets!

Using the Lawn Fawn cloudy stencil, I used the following inks and oxides to create a sky/sunset background:

– Faded Jeans

–  Salty Ocean

– Mustard Seed

– Pickled Raspberry

– Wilted Violet

Along with a sentiment, I stamped and coloured several bats from the Fangtastic Friends and Fangtastic Friends Add-on stamp sets to match the different colours of the clouds in the background. I used the following Ohuhu alcohol markers to colour the bats:

– Blue bat: B220, B260, B250

– Purple bat: V250, V230, V270

– Pink bat: RV260, RV270, R23

– Yellow bat: Y1, Y3, Y030

After colouring everything, I glued everything to my card to complete the project.

I had a lot of fun creating this card and adore how it turned out! This was a really fun colour combo that I would not have otherwise used!

Thanks for reading. Catch ya next time!

Simon Says Stamp February “Winter Blues” Challenge

Hi there, and welcome to the first post of Sasha Makes Cards! The theme of Simon Says Stamp’s monthly Instagram challenge for February is “winter blues,” so I’ve decided to do a fun under-the-water-themed card using some stamp sets from Hello Bluebird!

I first cut two pieces of white cardstock to 4.5” x 6.5” using my Fiskars paper trimmer. I also cut and folded the card base. On the one piece of 4.5” x 6.5” cardstock, I used an ink blending brush (I got mine from Amazon) and created a gradient in the two corners of using blueprint sketch distress ink, faded jeans distress oxide, and salty ocean distress oxide. On the other piece of 4.5” x 6.5” cardstock, I used an ink blending brush and simply blended on some salty ocean distress oxide. I then sprayed both pieces of cardstock with some water to create a really fun bubble-like effect.

Using Fiskars scissors, I cut one of the pieces of 4.5” x 6.5” cardstock (the one with the gradient in the corners) to create a wavy edge.

Using the Hello Bluebird Sea Life stamp set, I coloured the whale and dolphin using the following Ohuhu alcohol markers:

  • Whale: B050, B030
  • Dolphin: CG050, BG9

Then, using the Hello Bluebird Sea Sentiments stamp set, I stamped a sentiment that I thought would go really nicely with my card. I cut out the sentiment using Fiskars scissors.

I also stamped some little fish on the 4.5” x 6.5” blue background to help add some depth to the finished product.

Now, we can assemble the card! Using foam squares, I placed the two wavy, gradient corners on top of the blue background. The sentiment was glued onto the bottom corner using Bearly Art Glue. I then adhered the dolphin and whale to the card using foam squares. And with that, the card is finished!

Being the first card created for otter blue cards, I think it a rather appropriate first card! I can’t wait to create even more cards to share with all of you!

Thanks for reading!
