Poppin’ By To Say…with Lawn Fawn

Saturday, April 11th, 2020

Good morning and happy Saturday! Laurie with you to share a fun card featuring the spotlight technique. The spotlight technique is when you choose an image or area of your project to really stand out. Whether it be by popping something up for dimension or adding a bold, punch of colour.  I actually combined the two!

I started by stamping the sweet toaster from the Let’s Toast Stamp Set from Lawn Fawn. I used a Copic safe ink and used C1, C2 and the colourless blender to add some shading. On a seperate piece of white cardstock, I stamped the toaster and two strudel. I coloured in the pastries with Copics and decided to paper piece the toaster to add the fun striped pattern. Note: I knew I wanted the colourful toaster in the centre of the panel so I kept that in mind when stamping the background!

I die cut the toaster as well as the pastries with the co-ordinating Let’s Toast Dies. I adhered the toaster with foam adhesive to give dimension.  Of course, this card absolutely needed google eyes!!  I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder on black cardstock and trimmed to a small strip. I also popped this up!

I added the stamped panel to a white card base and after looking at it for a few minutes decided to add the stitched frame. I also added some shimmer to the pop tarts and a few areas of the toaster. Over top of this, I added a ton of Nuvo Crystal Glaze.

And that’s the finished card! Over on the Scrap N’ Stamp Facebook Page, we have two challenges going on. The first one, is our Paper Hugs Blog Hop…there’s still time to comment on our blogs for a chance to win a $50 gift certificate! The second is the Random Acts of Cardness Challenge. Everyday this month, we’re giving you a jumping off point to create using certain techniques, colours, shapes etc. And my post today is part of that…Spotlight! Please visit the FB page for details.

Thanks so much for stopping in today! Stay home and Stay Safe!  And Happy Easter!!
