Hey Friends, I'm playing in the CASology challenge this week. When I saw the cue card I knew I wanted to use my new-to-me Lawn Fawn Spring Showers dies. This set is not new but it's so versatile that I had to pick it up. 

I knew I wanted to make some kind of rainbow so I got out my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and scribbled them in a line in ROYGBV order on Bristol paper. Then I spritzed it with lots of water and let it dry. I went to work and came back to this beauty.
You can see the rest, just cut it into a circle and arranged the die cuts on top. I added a Lawn Fawn sentiment and a few hearts. 

I am also linking up to Simon Says Stamp Wed. Challenge -Use a die or punch.

Lawn Fawnatics 32

Hey Friends, I'm stopping in real quick to post this card before I miss the deadline. I recently purchased Lawn Fawn's Manatee-rific stamps and dies and the Wavy borders. I thought I could whip this card up but it took 2 hours between the ink blending, Copic coloring and fiddling with placement. It was fun though! 

I ink-blended Salty Ocean, Cracked Pistachio, Scattered Straw and Antique Linen Distress inks in the background. I added Copic dot detail to the sandy bottom and colored the sweet Manatees as well. The inside says "Cheers to manatee-rific years together". I tied in the anniversary theme by adding a tiny flower and bow tie (from another set). The sun and clouds are also Lawn Fawn. 

Thanks for stopping by!. See you soon! Kim

Baby Flynn is here! & The Color Throw down 500!

Hey Friends, What a coincidence! I was just about to post the card and gift I made for my Daughter and noticed it matched this week's Color Throwdown Challenge #500

My youngest Daughter just had her first baby (girl) and my 2nd grandchild on June 19th! Her name is Flynn Winter. We are all so happy to welcome her to the world.

My daughter loved Kate Spade products and I have loved Keds my whole life so I was giddy when I saw these adorable baby sneakers! (They are rose gold)  I brought them to the hospital when I met Baby Flynn for the first time. 

So onto the card and tag! I used the same "My Mind's Eye "Blush" patterned paper that Wanda did in her design team card. I just put together a simple design with the papers, machine stitching around it. I white heat embossed a Verve sentiment stamp on navy card stock and die cut with a circle die.

 Then added some white sheer ribbon and clear sequins. I kept it quite simple so I could work on the tag. 

The tag is a SSS tag die cut from the MME patterned paper. The baby word die is also SSS cut from Rose Gold Foil paper that came in one of the SSS card kits. 
The stamp and die that says "you were born to sparkle" is Sunny Studios. I wrapped the box in white paper and added white sheer ribbon and blue bakers twine. 
My daughter loved her gift very much!
Soon I will post of pic of our little Flynn.
Thanks for visiting!
