Three for Wednesday



Hi there!  I had a good few hours in the Card Cave today and I've got 3 cards to share for now.  First up is an entry for the Lawnscaping Back to School challenge.  I had to get a little creative here since I don't have any of the LF school or library sets.  I used these Louie's ABCs dies for the first time and I love them - such a fun font!  I stuck with primary colours (and a tiny touch of green) for a primary school feel and added the strip of black as a sort of blackboard.  Do they even have those anymore or are blackboards a total WHO?


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Pacific Point, Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Apple from My Silly Valentine, Rosette from Admit One) Lawn Fawn
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukeniko
Dies:  (Louie's ABCs) Lawn Fawn



Next up is a card for the Just Add Ink inspiration challenge.  I got this fun My Mind's Eye 6x6 paper pack that's all different woodgrains and wood patterns.  It was the first thing I thought of when I saw these inspiration pictures.  I also zeroed in on the white vase and broke out this Papertrey Ink die for the first time.





Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Pacific Point, Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Apple from My Silly Valentine, Rosette from Admit One) Lawn Fawn
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukeniko
Dies:  (Louie's ABCs) Lawn Fawn

  

My final card uses the CAS(E) This Sketch design and the colours and photo from Cupcake Inspirations.  I love this little Lawn Fawn crab - he's so cute!  How could you not forgive him for being crabby?  :)  Time to jet off to work.  I'll have another card to share tomorrow.
