Farm Scene Side-Step Card

Ch# 9 Outdoor Critters
Begins: Monday, Apr 29
Ends: Sunday, May 12

For this challenge I turned to my trusty Silhouette again (I really love that thing)!
The card base is the side step card cutting file from Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons. I used Recollections kraft for the base and Disney paper for the panels.

I used a couple of Miss Kate Cuttables files, pig in mud and flowers with fence (includes fences, flowers, grass and cloud).

The barn came from the silhouette store (Design ID #33629) as did the sun (Design ID #17341).

I used the print and cut feature on all my cuts.
I just love this card fold! The depth and layering really make the design pop. I also used a lot foam squares.

Celebrate The Occasion - Clean and Simple

Our challenge for you this week at Celebrate The Occasion is to create a clean and simple projects.

Here is what I made to share with you today.
This birthday card was super simple to make. I took stripes of cardstock,  rolled them tight and used washi tape to secure and decorate them. I hand drew the wicks and flames using my Distress Markers, then took my water brush and went over the flames lightly to create a glow.

And because clean and simple doesn't have to be boring . . .
. . . I decorated the inside too!

Celebrate The Occasion - Umbrella Challenge

Our challenge for you this week at Celebrate The Occasion is to use an umbrella in your design.
I used elements of the Rainy Day Bear SVG by Miss Kate Cuttables. I took the raindrops and created a repeating pattern for my background. I increased the size of the umbrella, wrapped my card in Stampin' Up twine and used a Lawn Fawn alphabet to create my sentiment tag.

Quick, easy yet bright and cheery. The perfect card to send to someone that might be feeling a little under the weather!

$15 Gift Cert. to The Robin's Nest
My Craft Spot Metal Dies or Stamp Set (winner's choice). WINNER MUST HAVE A USA ADDRESS
Winners announced in the WINNERS Page Tab of Pause Dream Enjoy Challenges

Here's what I created for this challenge:
I purchased this fun Easter Pop Up Card by Silhouette in the Silhouette Store (Design ID #40066). It's a great card that has the potential, with some alterations, to be very versatile. The best part is that it was so quick and easy to put together.
This gives you a birds-eye view.
I kept the front pretty simple since the inside is what you would display. The egg is a part of the cut file. I used baby blue and frosted lace Stickles to give it a little glimmer and dimension. Then I just added Queen and Co. washi and rhinestones and called it good!
