Oh Gnome #brimoodboard color challenge

Hello crafty friends. Davina here on the blog, with some color board inspiration for you today. I made a Slimline scene bursting full of Lawn Fawn goodness, that I hope you love. The June BRIMoodboard is a very zen/spa like color combination of wood grain, both bright and bold greens, and a lavender. At first one would think these colors difficult to use, but since green and purple are complimentary colors on the color wheel, they always look fabulous together. 

I pulled out about 7 different Lawn Fawn sets to create this bursting meadow scene, and the new Lawn Fawn Slimline dies both the Large And Small sets. I had a much different idea for this project when I first sat down. And about 5 hours later I had something very different than when I thought I was going to make. While flipping through my sets looking for images I wanted to use, I pulled out Oh Gnome, Gleeful Gardens, Frosty Fairy Friends, Fairy Friends, Jump for Joy, Butterfly Kisses, and A Bug Deal. I stamped about 30 images onto my Neenah classic crest cardstock using my stamp platform. I used the coordinating dies to cut out all of the images before coloring. That way I could create a scene like a puzzle, and only color the images I was going to use. 

I used the largest slimline die to cut a piece of Lawn Fawn Kraft Cardstock that I stamped some wood grain onto using Lawn Fawn Crunchy Leaf Brown ink. Then Using the next largest die, I cut a piece of Bristol Smooth Cardstock that I inkblended with Shaded Lilac & Dusty Concord. I splattered the panel with purple ink, white ink, and glittery perfect pearls. I cut some remnants of green cardstock with the same sized die and added a grassy border to each using the Lawn Fawn Grassy Hillside Borders To create a rolling hillside. I inked the edges of the grass using Mowed Lawn & Lucky Clover

Then I colored all of my images using my copic markers in color combinations that matched the mood board. I really enjoyed using all of the different shades of wood brown, green, and lavender on these images.then, using a variety of adhesives, I mounted all of the images onto the scene. I decided the little gnomes and the hummingbird needed a little bit of a boost, so I popped them up onto die cut fun foam. I really love the dimension it gives. I glued my layers together then added a little Lawn Fawn Chunky Glitter To the roof of the house do the center of my card can have a little Razzle Dazzle. 

I really love how this turned out and I hope you do too.

Reverse Confetti 7th Birthday Hop

Hello Fetti Friends! Today we are hopping along to celebrate the the 7th Birthday Release for Reverse Confetti. It is a little delayed due to the pandemic... but we’re still having a party and a great release. I feel blessed to be participating in this Hop as a Fetti a Friend, and hope you love what I’ve created.

I’ve got two fun cards to share with you today using some of the amazing new products. First up is this “Woof!” Just fur you card that I created using the new Corgi Cuties stamps and dies. The size of the little puppies is perfect, with plenty of space for texture and shading. There are few little accessories in the set of of corse I had to include them. I inkblended a simple light blue background to match the patterned paper background from an older paper pad I’ve had called Fright Night. Then I splattered with white ink and glittery perfect pearls. I added an additional paper layer, for a pop of color, and nestled my corgi cuties under the sky and heat embossed sentiment. The bubble clouds are from the Over the Rainbow die set. 

Once I adhered all of my layers onto the cardbase using scor tape, I added a few sparkling clear sequins to finish it off. 

The second card I made uses the fun freebie set that is included with qualifying orders. It is called friendly rainbows and has a lot of punch for a little set! The main large image had Hello Friend across the arch. Or you can stamp the bold sentiment without the rainbow. It also has a two different types of clouds and a couple of sentiments. 

I cut some soft yellow textured cardstock out with the Snowball Cover Plate  for a fun bubble look. Then I gently inked the edges of the panel with a darker yellow so that it matched my colored rainbow. I adhered my colored images onto a pastel inked background and popped it up on foam tape so the cute bubble texture was visible underneath. I also think it’s the perfect size to put atop a tall slimline card too!
