Today I’m sharing my project for the current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge, and that is why the title of the blog post is Fiesta Veraniega (Summer Party) because the challenge is about parties.
To decorate the bottles I used Lawn Fawn “On the Beach” stamps and dies. I love the fox and the bear tanning. I wish I could, but I have very pale skin and I sunburn easily.
First I stamped the images on Bristol paper using Versafine Onyx black ink and colored everything with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. Then, I used coordinating dies to die cut the images.
I cut strips of blue and kraft color cardstock and then used Mama Elephant “Ocean Waves Trio” dies for the sea and Lawn Fawn “Stitched Hillside Borders” dies for the sand. To give more texture to the sandy pieces, I splattered some Gathered Twigs and Picket Fence Distress Inks mixed with water as well as a mixture of water and Perfect Pearls in copper color. Next, I wrapped the bottles and added the images. Maybe it is a busy scene, especially for a bottle decoration, but I love it!!
I made some straw decorations too. I thought it would be nice to have beach umbrellas for the critters. To make them I used Lawn Fawn “Outside In Stitched Scalloped Circle Stackables” dies. I used the biggest die on Bristol paper and then did some masking to ink the sectors. I used Abandoned Coral, Mermaid Lagoon and Scattered Straw Distress Inks.
Then I scored the pieces and, after die cutting a circle in the middle, I cut them in half (following the black line I drew in the picture) and glued the two pieces together. Last, I folded the flaps using the stitching line. I love how the beach umbrellas turned out!
So long since the last post! Sorry for being MIA. We went on a vacation to Canada: Montreal, the Rockies, and Vancouver. We had a great time and I got amazed for the beauty of Canadian natural parks, the kindness of the locals and the vivid cities. I’m sure I’ll return to Canada in the future!!
Today I’m sharing a pop-up card I made more than a month ago, for Spanish Mother’s Day, and that I haven’t given to the recipient yet. Anyway, I hope she likes it! So, with the hype of GOT final season, I decide to make an ASOIAF themed card. Mama Elephant “Me and My Dragon” and “Dragon Wishes” stamp sets have absolutely darling images! These may be some of my all time fav stamp set!
First I stamped the images on Bristol paper using Versafine Onyx black ink and colored everything with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. I tried to match the colors of the dragons in the books, but I couldn’t color a Viserion I liked (white and gold) so I went for a blue and pink dragon. I used a white gel pen to add details to the dragons and die cut the images using coordinating dies. For the card front, I used a piece of pattern paper from Dear Lizzy’s Lovely Day collection. I think this paper is perfect for the card, with Dany riding Drogon, adhered with foam tape. The word Mom is stamped with Lawn Fawn Narwhal ink using La Vida en Scrap “Escríbeme” caligraphy stamp set.
For the inside of the card, I used Mama Elephant “Kingdom Trio” dies on several colors of Canson Mi-Teintes paper. I know I’ve said it before, but I love the texture of this paper! I used Lawn Fawn “Everyday Pop-ups” dies to build the scene. For the background, I blended Worn Lipstick and Dried Marigold Distress inks. Last, I adhered the images and stamped the sentiment from “Dragon Wishes” with Versamark ink and heat embossed it on white.
Today I’m sharing a card of a greedy bear trying to steal some honey from the hard-working bees! I thought Mama Elephant “FBA-Bear” dies would pair perfectly with Hello Bluebird “Bee Happy” stamp set 🙂
First, I stamped the bees on some Bristol paper using Versafine Onyx black ink. I colored them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and fussy cut them. I added Wink Of Stella to the wings and some highlights with a white gel pen. I also used Glossy Accents on the glasses of one of the bees.
Next, I used Mama Elephant dies to die cut the bear. I used Canson Mi-Teintes paper for the body, kraft cardstock for the muzzle, and pink cardstock for the ears. For the paws I used “FBA-Monkey” dies.
For the cloudy background, I inked a piece of Bristol paper using Salty Ocean Distress ink and MFT “Cloud” stencil. Next, I blended Wild Honey Distress Ink and Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide Ink on a Bristol paper panel and used a die from Lawn Fawn “Stitched Oval Stackables” dies to cut a window. Then, I stamped the hexagons using the same Spiced Marmalade ink. The sentiment was white heat embossed on a thin stripe of black cardstock.
Last, I assembled everything. I adhered the cloudy panel to a card base and the hive panel to that, using foam tape. I glued the bear tucking him behind the oval window. I added Glossy Accents to his eyes and nose and, once it was dried, added some highlights with a white gel pen. I adhered the sentiment and the bees to the card using glue and foam tape.
I think this card turned out pretty well and I think it’s really cute! I hope you like it too!!
