I'm so excited to finally get to share my projects using the new Lawn Fawn Summer Release products! One of my favorite sets from the new release is Ahoy, Matey! I just think these little pirates are too cute and I am in love with the card I created! :)
I created a fun treasure map background by stamping with Doe ink on kraft cardstock. I hand cut the rough edges with a craft knife then inked the edges with Tea Dye distress ink and bent up the corners. I love when what is my head totally works out on paper!
For my images I stamped them on Bristol paper and colored them using Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens and a water brush. I added some shimmery accents to the treasure chest using metallic watercolors from Prima.
For my second pirate card I repeated the same treasure map idea but with a die cut rectangle instead and I used the smallest Lift The Flap die to create three little windows to open. X marks the spot where the treasure is hidden of course!
For this map I stamped the images with Walnut ink for more contrast and used tea dye ink all around to create the coloration of the map with a little vintage photo on the edges. The panel is cut using the largest Rectangle Outside In Stitched Stackable die.
I also used the tea dye ink to add a distress look the the cream card base. This helped tone down the brightness of the cream and made it match the top panel better.
For my final card today I used the largest Lift the Flap die along with the new Pretty Poppies die set to create a pretty thank you card. I used distress oxide inks on distress woodgrain cardstock to create the background. From the top left corner to the bottom right, I used fossilized amber, cracked pistachio, broken china, faded jeans and wilted violet. I also added some water splatters and white gold watercolor splatters for some added interest.
The poppies were colored by blending regular distress inks and then giving the flower petals a coat of clear Spectrum Noir glitter overlay. I finished it off with some clear sequin embellishments.
The Simple Gift Card slots fit this largest flap perfectly to allow you to insert a special surprise underneath.
