Simon Says and Lawn Fawn #98 Challenge


Simon Says Layers and Lawn Fawn Spring challenges: Today I'll be playing in two challenges; one with layers and the next with spring! I am obsessed with rainbows right now and I just love making cards with them. For the Simon Says Challenge, you need to use layers and the Lawn Fawn Challenge is all about spring! Nothing says spring like rain -- which brings rainbows! 

For the words, I used some older dies from Simon Says and used the negatives to spell out 'smile' and positioned it every little bit so that when I spin the card you'll see different rainbow colors of the word 'smile'! I am in LOVE with Concord and 9th's rainbow dies and sentiments so I have been having lots of fun with making cards with them. Thank you so much for coming and looking at my cards and blog!!

Simon Says and Lawn Fawn Challenge #94

What's the Weather? and Whatever the Weather Challenge: Wow! It has been a very long time since I've been on this blog - YEARS - and a long time since I've made any cards. Sometimes, life just get's in the way and that's what happened to me! I've had babies, moved, and just lived life. I've been trying to get back into scrapbooking and making cards - especially since I had another baby and I would love to scrapbook some pages for her like I did for my first one. 

For this first blog post, I am joining the Lawn Fawn Weather Challenge and also the Simon Says Monday Challenge called Whatever the Weather.  I got an instant idea when I aw this challenge and I think the card turned out better then what I had in mind. I am NOT good and guessing what the colors mean except that blue is cold and red hot. I just got it off the internet so forgive me if the map isn't right lol. I think the smiles the stamps have make it really fun and I just love how it turned out! I wrote the message in the speech bubble. Thank you so very much for viewing my card and blog! More cards to come!!

Simon Says: Recycle


Simon Says Challenge: I am excited about this Recycle Challenge because awhile ago I made a Reduce, Reuse and Recycle card and I never could figure out how to use it or to give it to anyone. So I'm at least glad I get to finally show it off lol. I have no idea where I got the 'reuse' metal word so I'm sorry that I can't tell you. But it was just perfect for this challenge! Maybe I'll send it to some one for Earth Day. Thank you so much for stopping by!

Simon Says: A Bit O' Green

Simon Says Challenge: This card isn't very St. Patrick's Day-ish but the rainbow is a great representation of it I think! I have always loved rainbow cards and always wanted some dies and stamps but just until recently I've never had any - just always saved the cards because I loved them so much! But when I saw Concord & 9th, My Favorite Things and Tailored Expressions had come out with some rainbows and awesome dies, I just had to finally get them! 
So, here is my card with a splash of green. I don't know where I got the little flower brad but I thought with the rain - it was a good idea to have it on there to show that "April showers bring May flowers". Thank you so much for stopping by and looking at my card!

Stamps: Concord & 9th 'Brighter Days' stamps
Dies: Concord & 9th 'Brighter Days' dies
Ink: Heidi Swapp Archival Dye in Mint & Navy

Simon Says: Add Some Green

 Monday Challenge: Add Some Green: It's almost time to celebrate St. Patrick's Day! As all of us were unable to celebrate last year due to the shutdown and the Pandemic, I'm glad things are starting to open up again and everyone can go out and have a good time - within reason of course!

For this card I used some of the wonderful Concord & 9th stamps and this amazing glitter ink that is in a "teardrop" shape ink pad. I have both golf and silver and it is super amazing!! Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a look at my blog!

Simon Says Instagram Challenge: Watercolor

SSSIGChallenge: Today I have a card for the Instagram challenge for Simon Says. We have to use watercolor, and since I really haven't ever use watercolor, or have any good watercolor palette, I still decided to try my hand at a card or two. 

For my first card I used some JoAnn pearlescent watercolors. I love how this card turned out because the colors are very bright and bled very nicely -- and you have to love that shimmer! The brads add a nice touch I think because I used the same colors in the card background, and lastly I added a bit more sparkle to the flowers with Wink of Stella. Thank you very much for stopping by!

Stamps: Simon Says Stamp 'Freestyle Flowers' stamp and die set
Ink: StazOn
Watercolors: JoAnn Pearlescent
Brads: Queen & Co
Shimmer pen: Zig Wink of Stella Brush II

MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge - Sketch 528

MFTWSC528- I am on a retreat right now! Where you ask? My basement!! My best friend found a wonderful place called 3 Craft Chicks and they have Retreats in a Box! And it is wonderful because of Covid and no one want's/can go anywhere right now so it's great! 

For this card I used some of the paper I received in the Retreat Box and I found this amazing Doodlebug "sea" type paper and I got the great idea of using my mermaid stamps! This challenge is for the My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge. Sea/Ocean/Mermaids are becoming very popular this year and I just love it all! I outlined the mermaid's tail with a Gelly Roll Gold greenish color and I just love how it sparkles and I also used a gold Gelly Roll also for the star in her hair. Just have to love all that glitter! Thank you SO much for stopping!

Patterned paper: Doodlebug 'Anchors Aweigh' 
Stamps: 'BB Mermazing' by My Favorite Things

MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge - Sketch 527

MFTWSC527: Another post from me! I'm on a roll lol. Today I'm making cards using the sketch idea from My Favorite Things. I am just LOVING all their new stamps and dies they've come out with the last few weeks. I can't wait to see what this year brings with them! 

This sketch for the Wednesday Sketch Challenge has a sunrays effect and for some reason the thought of smoke came to mind. I have this adorable chemistry set and I was really looking for a way to make it work so I'm glad there is this sketch!

To make it look like an explosion, I blotted some black ink onto a wet baby wipe and just kind of squished it onto the "explosion clouds" and over my little guy. He looks like he got the brunt of it! It's hard to see, but I used some Diamond Glaze to make the bottle he's holding pop out and look like glass. Thank you so very much for stopping by to view my card and blog!!

Stamps: BB Cute Chemists by My Favorite Things
Dies: BB Cute Chemists die-namics by My Favorite Things
Glaze: Diamond Glaze

I thought I would show it off at the Unity Friends With Flair; thanks SO very much for stopping by and taking a look!!
