hello!
today I have a card up on the Lawn Fawn blog!
so exciting! and to top it off, I also created a video on how I made this sweet, adorable shadow box card! you can check it out on my YouTube Channel, here!

ok, so let's get to it!

I told you it was adorable! ha! and bonus: it's also interactive!
I started by stamping and coloring the images from Virtual Friends, Bubbles of Joy, You're Just My Type and Party Animal. then I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to color them! once they were all dry, I used the coordinating dies to die cut them out and added a little details with the white gel pen!

for the background, I used the Brick Stencil and some Manatee Ink to ink blend a subtle brick wall. and I used Woodgrain Backdrops for the hardwood floor! I stamped the woodgrain in Walnut Stain Ink, and then Ink blended in with Fossilized Amber and Vintage Photo.

of course, the main star of the show is the Magic Picture Changer and Magic Picture Changer Add-on dies! I just love how it changes the 'screen' of the monitor from loading to the friend! but I do love the rainbow birthday hats and balloons to add to the festivities!

once it was all assembled, I started adding the images with glue! so fun to create the extended scene!! then I heat embossed the sentiment in white onto a black banner that was die cut with the Fancy Wavy Banners dies and glued it on the floor!

enjoy!

happy Monday!
let's start this week off with a NEW challenge over at the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge blog!

oh my goodness, these ducks are just the cutest! I decided to go with a Father's Day-themed card!
I used the grass tuft images from Toadally Awesome and Swan Soiree. the ducks are from Rub-a-Dub-Dub and Easter Party! ha! I colored all of the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, and then fussy cut them out!

I also used the Stitched Pond dies to add the...well...the pond! I used Distress Inks in Chipped Sapphire, Blueprint Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon and Cracked Pistachio! then I splattered some water on top.
then I used the Sandy Beach Accents dies to add some waves to the pond where the ducks are swimming!
for the grass, I used Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron Distress Inks! I splattered some ink color on top, to add to the grass-like texture.
