My favorite card that I've made, so far ...

Pin It

So I've been a wee bit obsessed with cardstock with clouds on it.  I've been incorporating it on a lot of my projects.  I made this card's cloud background with Jilly Bean Soup's corn kernels cardstock, which also has an adorable white flowers on solid green pattern on the other side.  I went around the cloud cardstock's edge with my Tim Holtz foam tool and added a hint of color to give it dimension.  You'll notice I do this on almost all my projects.  It was the very first technique I learned when I started scrapbooking and I just love it!  I put the cloud cardstock on top of some Bazzill's Basics card stock in aqua and then layered on another layer in that same aqua colored Bazzill cardstock that I stamped with Lawn Fawn's tiny backdrops.  Using the Lawn Fawn 'Admit One' stamp set I cut and pieced the tickets and ferris wheel after I colored them in with Copic markers.  Using different sizes of foam adhesives I adhered them to the card.  Before taping down all the layers I wrapped some baker's twine around the cloud cardstock just to give it a lil something, something.  Finally I attached the lil Doodlebug gems and went around the bottom layer of aqua cardstock with a gel pen for a faux stitching look.

Five things I'm obsessed with right now:
Cloud cardstock
Lawn Fawn stamps
Doodlebug gems and buttons
Copic markers
Foam adhesives

If you have any questions about this card or any of the products I used, please don't hesitate to contact me.  Thanks so much for reading my latest entry.  Please subscribe to my blog if you're feeling frisky.  :)  Any crittiques are very welcome.  Seeing as this is my first blog ever, I could use all the advice you can toss my way.

Inky and glittery fingers for all!

  1. Your card is stunning and I LOVE your style in general! Just discovered your Ferris Wheel card over on Two Peas tonight after doing a search for Lawn Fawn stamps. I don't own any Lawn Fawn stamps...yet ;) I'm sure I eventually will! I can't get over just how cool your card is and it made me suddenly want a stamp set that I initially said, eh I wouldn't have to have that one. This is too cute and fun!
