Father’s Day Card using Lawn Fawn

Cards, Challenges, Father's Day Cards

Hi there! Today I’m sharing a card I created for the Colour Me! challenge. I have some exciting news to share about the Challenge so make sure to check back soon for the big reveal. In the meantime, the challenge this week is create a project using red and navy.

The colours seemed perfect for a father’s day card so that’s what I created. I wanted to create a custom card just for my Dad so I used stamps from Lawn Fawn to create my greeting.

You could easily use this idea and tailor the definition to your Dad. My biggest tip for stamping your own greeting is to draw some lines (in pencil) to guide the stamping and ensure everything is straight. Because this is a one layer card with the greeting as the major focal point, I figured that if I didn’t get things lined up, it would be pretty obvious. I stamped each letter individually, but if you’re patient, you could also line up each word on your acrylic block and stamp it that way.

After finishing the greeting, I felt like the card needed a little something more so I stamped two monsters peeking out from the bottom of the card and coloured them in using my Prisamacolor Pencils.

Colour Me! #74 – White on White Picture Frame

Any occasion

Hi there! Welcome back to another Wednesday Colour Me! challenge post. The challenge this week is to create a white on white project.

CMCC74

Unlike usual, I created a picture frame for my project this week. This is actually something I’ve been working on for quite a while but have never quite finished until this challenge. This project was super easy with the help of my Silhouette Portrait, free clip art files, and some tape. You can watch my video tutorial, below, to see how I made it.

I bought this shadow box style frame at my local dollar store to see if the idea I had in mind would work. I’m happy with the result, so I will transfer it to a nicer frame that I can display. In the end, the frame can nicely accommodate a 4″ x 6″ picture.

All of the files I used to create the elements were free clip art images that I traced with the trace tool in Silhouette Studio. The Silhouette Studio part of the project was definitely the most time consuming of the whole project but assembly was so easy, now that I’ve got all the elements saved, I could reproduce the frame in a jiffy.

That’s it for today! I hope that I’ve helped inspire you to play along with us at the Colour Me! challenge this week. Make sure to drop by the other designers for even more inspiration–
