Lawnscaping challenge - one layer

Hello!  Today I'm sharing with you a quick card using the stamp set 'Beep Boop Birthday' from Lawn Fawn.  My inspiration for this card is from a stamp set 'Up and Away' by Mama Elephant, I'm sure you know the set pretty well.  So here is my take on.



 

I stamped the balloon quite a few times to make a bunch, and stamped the robot and coloured it in with just 2 shades of greys.  I manipulated the speech bubble into a flag and stamped my sentiment in it.

I hope you like it, and see you soon!

Challenge: Lawnscaping challenge - one layer.

Surprise!

Hello again!

I actually made two cards based on the current challenges at Make the Day Special(sketch) and Virginia's View Challenge #7(patterned paper). And this is my second one.





























The little robot and the present stamps are from Lawn Fawn's new release 'Beep Boop Birthday',  I just love the two robots in the set, so much fun to colour in with.  And for this card, I used some Spetrum Noir markers in 2 turquoise shades.  The patterned paper is from Crate Paper 'Story Teller'.  and I randomly stamped some bolts (also from the set) on the red panel to make it look more interesting.  The robot looks as if he just jumped out from behind the blue panel to say ' Surprise!' and that's why I cut these letters out from a patterned paper (the same collection), yes, these aren't stickers. At last I traced around the blue panel with a black marker, otherwise it would look too boring.

Just that simple!
Hope you like it. If you would like to see my first card, just scroll down.
See you soon!

Welcome baby card in neutral colours

Hello! It has been ages since last time I posted.  I didn't make any cards during the summer holidays, just enjoyed the very brief British summer (and it's been amazingly not brief this year) with my kids, and I loved it, although I was so itchy wanting to make cards.

So here is my first card after a 2-month-break:




























Who said baby cards can only be pink or blue? Lol.

I stamped the elephants (from Paper Smooches 'A little lovin') and coloured in with some Spetrum Noir markers in cool grey shades.  Then the coloured piece was adhered onto a doily die cut (from Clearly Besotted).  The patterned paper is from Country Boutique from Fancy Pants.  And my card is based on the sketch from the current 'Make the Day Special challenge'.  Also this month's Virginia's View Challenge #7 is all about patterned paper, so I would like to submit my card to both challenges.

Do play along if you can.  See you soon!
