Hope Your Day is the G.O.A.T.

Friday, April 8th, 2022

 

Happy Friday! Here we are into the second week in April, and for many of us in Canada, spring is finally starting to show itself. (Don’t worry, I see lots of pics from BC of cherry blossoms and lawns being mowed, but not all of us are quite so lucky. 😀 ) With spring in mind, I chose OUTDOOR for today’s Random Acts of Cardness prompt.  Today my outdoors includes goats!

 

 

Story behind the card: my brother has a bit of a farm (or as we like to tease him, a petting zoo) and among his many animals are a number of goats. When I saw this new set from Lawn Fawn, I knew it would be perfect for a brotherly birthday card! Don’t worry though, with the assorted sentiments, this set has goat your back 😀  for a variety of occasions. I stamped, coloured and die cut the two goats and little bale of hay and arranged them on my card base to see how they would best look. I added a little grass under them using distress ink and a dry paint brush. Once I’d added and embossed the sentiments, It seemed like it still needed a little something, so I added a couple of clouds in glittery silver. (I cut mine from a decade+ old Memory Box set; this one would work equally well.) My simple outdoor scene is done!

 

Perhaps with the warmer weather you’re spending more time outdoors, but I hope you’ll be able to make something and join us on the Facebook challenge page. Or, as I like to do, maybe you’ll combine things and make a card while sitting outside! And if you’ve just goat to have this sweet set, or any other crafty supplies, don’t forget you can use 10Lindsey to save 10% off your regular-priced order.

 

Have a Hoppy and Sunny Easter!

Monday, March 21st, 2022

 

The calendar has moved into SPRING here in Canada! (I’m just gonna ignore the snow in the backyard…) And so my word for today’s Random Acts of Cardness challenge: SUNSHINE. I was tempted to make a beach scene, because wow, I miss the beach 😉 , but then my thoughts turned to Easter:

 

 

 

I still wanted to make sure my sun motif was prominent, so I started blending my sky background with some squeezed lemonade distress ink to give my whittle sun a nice sunny glow around it. The rest of the sky is blended with tumbled glass distress ink to keep the background light. I was going to cut the grass out of regular green cardstock, but this Photo Play polka dot paper happened to be out, and I thought it would be a fun addition.  The Easter bunny, eggs and sentiment are all from a mini Lawn Fawn stamp set. There are days I might colour all the different Easter eggs… and days like today when I cut them from scraps of coloured cardstock. 😉

 

 

Are you like me, ready for some spring sunshine? Hope you’ll play along!

 

Some FURRY Tracey Hey Fun

Friday, February 11th, 2022

 

Happy Friday! Here we are, the weekend before Valentines Day, so I suppose I could have gone with something mushy for today’s Random Acts of Cardness prompt, but instead I chose FURRY! Not that we aren’t mushy with our furry friends. 😉  I also wanted to break out another Tracey Hey stamp set, and remind you there is still time to visit and comment on our Wild ‘n Whimsy Inspiration Hop for your chance to win one of these sweet stamp sets! And with that… here is my card:

 

 

 

Isn’t this little pup a cutie? While personally I always choose red rubber boots 😀  I decided to give this guy bright yellow ones. He comes from the Hot Dog set, along with two other sweet wiener dogs and accompanying sentiments. I added clouds and a sentiment from an older Lawn Fawn set. The sky and ground are distress inks, with the help of a die cut mask for the grass. The card base is made from sour apple My Favorite Things cardstock.

 

 

If you are wondering about the sentiment, it continues on the inside, along with a sticker from my previous teaching life:

 

 

If your weekend includes some crafting time, perhaps you’ll consider joining the SnS challenge – one person will win a $50 gift code to the Scrap ‘n Stamp store!
