for the background, I did some ink blending with Wilted Violet, Blueprint Sketch, Peacock Feathers and Salvaged Patina in Distress Oxide Inks.
then I used some white embossing paste and the Plaid Stencils Set to give it a cool pizza parlor table cloth look!
I also love the texture it adds!

I used the new A2 Cad Layout 2 Die Set for the frame! I die cut it out of a soft beige background. then I also die cut it out of some of the new Black & White Basics Paper Pad. I used those pieces to fill the frames. I am in LOVE with the new paper pads, and how they really let your images POP!

I used the new Fractured Card Layout Die Set and used it to die cut out from white cardstock and a piece of that beautiful paper from the new Natural Basics Paper Pad. I then used Salvaged Patina on the patterned paper to add a hint of blue of the beige.
I used Distress Inks in Mowed Lawn, Twisted Citron and Pine Needles for the pieces in white cardstock.
I attached them to the card front, and then used some white embossing paste and the Cascading Stars Stencil to add some texture!

nothing goes together better than summer and Lawn Fawn!


I love the idea of a Christmas in July challenge
! and I decided to add some summery elements to my christmas card!

I stamped the image from Winter Otter two times. I also stamped the little conch present from Beachy Christmas. then I colored all of the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I also fussy cut out each image!

I thought it would be adorable to make these river otters! for the river/sandy shore I used Distress Inks in Vintage Photo and Fossilized Amber. once it was blended, I used the same colors and white acrylic ink to splatter all over. then i added some texture with the Snowflake Background Stencils and white embossing paste. I popped up the sides of the card with foam tape so that the river looked a little but under the shore!

I used Wilted Violet, Blueprint Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon and Cracked Pistachio to ink blend the actual 'river' portion. then I splattered some water on top.
I heat embossed the sentiment in white onto Black Licorice cardstock.


I really can't WAIT for you to play along! you could win a $25 gift certificate to Lawn Fawn!!!!
enjoy!
