Follow Your Dreams | Happy Adventure| CTD#488

I participated in this week’s color throwdown challenge CTD#488.  I had a lot of fun creating.

The card front was made by using our Gel Press (JM-0107), Brayer (TO-0087) Cool Pool Splash (IP-0076), Shimmer Gold Splash(IP-0081)  and Whip Cream Acrylic Paint (JM-0106).   [I learned this technique on the Fun Stampers Journey – Try-day Friday post on Facebook].  After that dried I adhered it to a Pool Play (CS-0092) card base. The I added a strip of Kiwi Slice (CS-0016).

Follow Your Dreams Happy Adventure

The truck came from the Happy Adventure (SS-0565) stamp set [definitely on my top 10 list] and was stamped in Black Licorice (IP-0041) ink onto a piece of Whip Cream cardstock.  I colored the truck in using Pineapple Smoothie Splash (IP-0080), Shimmer Silver Splash (IP-0082) and a Blending Brush (TO-0097) with water in the barrel.  The flowers in the truck were colored in with Just Write Gels (JD-0060).  I popped that up on the card front using Foam Squares (AD-0085). 

Using Lemon Drop (CS-0018) cardstock and the Journey Circles (DI-0039) I cut out the sun and stamped the sentiment from the Blue Skies (SS-0574) stamp set in Black Licorice ink.  The clouds were cut out of Whip Cream (CS-0040) card stock using the Cloud Dreams (DI-0032) dies.  Those were popped up using Foam Squares.  I added a Whip Cream Thread (AC-0128) bow to the sun and the card was finished.

May all your hand-made creations be Inked with Kindness, Stamped with Love.

I had some supplies left over from the Easter Party in a Box (BD-0388) and pulled out some other supplies that I had on hand and came up with this super cute craft project!!

Egg straordinary

Using our Green Olive Acrylic Paint (JM-0021) and our Square Paint Brush (TO-0102) I painted the inside of an Egg Crate (ST-0129).  After that dried, I took the Spring Crepes (ST-0128) and keeping it folded cut a couple 1 1/2″ pieces and then used the Fringe Shears (TO-0081) to cut them to make them look like grass.  Using the Grand Pro Shears (TO-0064), I the strips into smaller pieces and placed them into the cup portion of the Egg Crate.

I tied some Gingham Tangerine Fusion Ribbon (AC-0092) around the outside of the Egg Crate and I was done.

I think it looks absolutely adorable!!!
