{Catherine Pooler Designs} July 2019 Club Sursee, Part 1

Hi there, I'm popping in with a sneak peek at the Deluxe Club Sursee subscription for July 2019. It's amazing and I have way too many ideas and not enough time to share all of them! This card is just the tip of the iceberg of what you can do with the products in this month's subscription.

I used five Catherine Pooler inks - Party Dress, Tiki Torch, Tiara, Mint To Be and Fiesta Blue - to create an ombre effect with the custom sentiment from the Layered Greetings stamp set. Then I used life changing blender brushes to blend the same colours on the Friendship Border die - Party DressTiki Torch and Tiara for the lattice and Mint To Be and Fiesta Blue for the inserts. This design was inspired by all the stunning tile mosaics I saw on my recent vacation in Portugal.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

{Avery Elle} Twin Birthday Card by Damian

We got back from Portugal on Wednesday and Damian quickly made this card while recovering from jet-lag. His twin friends turned 12 on Friday and they're moving to Los Angeles in a week so we included virtual gift cards to their favourite stores once they get settled in their new home!

Damian used Prismacolor pencils to colour images from Avery Elle's Market StandPeek-a-Boo Pets, Peek-a-Boo Pals and a retired set called Hats Off.

Damian's linking up this card to Kathy Racoosin's 30 Day Colouring Challenge. With end-of-year concerts and our vacation, we were just too busy to play along this time around but it's nice to be able to squeak one in. ☺️

Thanks so much for stopping by!

{Two Many Cards Video Series} featuring Lawn Fawn + Giveaway!

Hi, everyone! Samantha Mann and I are back with new videos for Two Many Cards. If you're new to this series, please visit my original post HERE, which explains how and why we're sharing our own unique take on the same products. 

Today, we're so excited to be featuring fun, adorable and super inspiring products from Lawn Fawn, including On the Beach stamps, On the Beach dies, Hammock and Trees and Sandy Beach Accents.

I used all of the aforementioned sets, along with the Shadow Box Card dies to create two shadow box cards. That little bear makes me squeal, especially with the cool shades and the fox is too cool in the hammock!

I used the Sandy Beach Accents on four of the five hills so I could tuck in the different images. They're so much fun and addictive to use! These could be used on pretty much anything, from sand to water and even snow.

I was so delighted that I was able to figure out a way to fit the Hammock and Trees into the Shadow Box Card. I really hope you'll give it a try and let me know how it turned out!

Who knew interactive cards would be so addictive to make and play with? The Magic Picture Changer and Magic Picture Changer Add-On dies are pure genius and I loved transforming this little sunbathing bear into a tanned version of himself, complete with a setting sun and darker sand. Lucky for him, he had sunscreen on so he wasn't too badly burned. LOL

I hope you enjoyed today's 3D and interactive cards! Have you used these dies? If not, they're a fabulous way to surprise the recipient. My son was super impressed by the shadow box cards but then asked what they're for. LOL! I wonder what kind of scene he would create? ;)
