Hello friends! It has been awhile since I have worked on any cards. I spent an amazing week in Westport, WA with a good friend. It was cold, rainy and just perfect. It took me a couple of weeks to catch up before I could find some time to get to my playroom.
I created this card for the Lawnfanatics Challenge #144 All Things Birthday. I am not loving this card and I think it is because of the colors on the mountains. I also messed up stamping the "Beep! Beep!" on the card so I had to find a fix for that - I am not crazy about the use of the clouds but I didn't want to "throw the baby out with the bathwater" as they say, so this was the end product.
I love Lawn Fawn Clippings (stencils), they make it so easy to ink and mask. However, I did have to create my own mask for the road. The stencils I used were: Hillside Stencils, Mountain Stencil, the new Cloud Background Stencils.
I used Distress Oxide in Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn for the ground. For the road, I used Lost Shadow and Hickory Smoke. The mountains are Pine Needles and Chipped Sapphire. The sky is Tumbled Glass for the main color and one layer of the clouds and Salty Ocean for the other cloud layer.
The stamp sets I used are Car Critters, Car Critters Add On, Elfie Selfie for the cake. I used the balloons from the Elephant Parade Add On and Claire's ABC's for the "Beep! Beep!". The die cuts that I used are Oliver's Stitched ABC's, Spring Showers,
I really like the new Cloud Background Stencil and can't wait to play with it some more.
I hope you enjoyed this card. Thanks for stopping by.
