Mood Board Inspired

Hello everyone! It’s LauraJane today, sharing a card that was inspired by the Mood Board at The Ton Challenge Blog .   I can’t seem to move away from the beautiful, FRESH colors on this board chosen by Effie.

SCRUMPTIOUS, RIGHT?!?

I reached for the newly released Sunflower Border Cling and the MISTI, several Zig markers in colors coordinating with the Mood Board. 021,026,041,045,046,050,069,098,200,202,220,222,230

My favorite paper to use with the Cling stamps and ZIGs is by RANGER, Gloss Finish. When using the MISI, the color pools in unexpected places adding to the watercolor look without adding any water.  After the background was colored to my satisfaction, I used the Sunflower Border Coordinating Die to cut the center from the panel.

Border shaker made Easy

Hello! It’s LauraJane:) today.  Boy do I have a super easy shaker card thanks to the Floral Border Cling Background and the new Coordinating Die . Take a look!

When Effie said she had this NEW die available, I said,”YES Ma’am! and Thank YOU!!”  Fussy cutting out the middle of the Floral Border Cling Background was never my favorite thing to do. The new Coordinating Die makes it so simple.

Here is how I made the card:

Here’s a closer look:

At this point I realized that the Congratulations Word Die was too long for the short end of my panel…so I carefully did some surgery and cut after the first “t” and before the “s” and spliced them together on the card front. Saying, “Congrats” for an anniversary, or a retirement, or maybe a new home:)) I’ll decide later and place the rest of the sentiment on the inside of the card.

I finished the card by sprinkling a few sequins and flowers from the same two mixes from above.

Hope you enjoyed today’s card and understood my instructions.
