Lawn Fawn CHA entries #2 and #3!!

Hello again everyone!!

I'm here again today to show you some creations I made for the Lawn Fawn CHA competition. Both very simple cards, and easy to produce :)

But first, some VERY exciting news! I will be guest designing over at the Lawnscaping Blog on January 16th AND I'll be Guest Designer at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog for the WHOLE of February!!! That's 5 weeks!! I'm so so so so so excited! (You should have seen me when I got the news!) I'm also a WHOLE lot of nervous lol. 

OK! That's my news, so onto the cards!

Here is card number 1.

Carousel You make my world...

I stamped the tickets onto a strip of white cardstock, then used a perforator tool to run between each ticket, so it looked like a real strip of tickets (which would be ripped off as you enter the fair). I cut the little notches into the corners too (You could use a corner rounder for this too)

I then cut a small square of cardstock, used the Stub/Deco Corner Chomper to make the centre piece of the card match the tickets. I then stamped the Carousel image and coloured it in with Copic Markers.

Next I cut a larger piece of cardstock (1/4" smaller all the way around the edges than a standard sized card). I stamped the ticket image repeatedly on an angle, across the whole piece, using Jenny Bowlin Inks.

Finally I adhered the piece to a card base using dimensional adhesive. 

Here are the products I used: 


And Card #2:

Ferris Wheel Stuck at the top..

Here is the inside:

I simply stamped the card base with Teeny Tiny Background stamps, leaving a strip of white. Then I stamped the Ferris Wheel Image and coloured it in with copic markers, before cutting it out. I added some glossy accents to the windows.

I added red ink to three little hearts (to show the couple who are kissin' in the top car) and a little stickles to the hearts too.

Next I stamped the sentiment using Sally's ABC's in the blank space and on the inside. To finish the card, I added some faux stitching with a black pen.

Here are the products I used:


That's it for today!!

See you again soon :)
