Fall to Layout #50 Take Two

Happy Sunday!

I hope you're all having a good new year so far! I've got a birthday card today since it's my birthday this coming week!

Here's the sketch- once again, I'm encouraging the use of ribbon or some other sort of fibers!

The dimensions I used for this card are super simple:
Card Base: 4-1/4 x 5-1/2
Panel: 4-1/4 x 2-3/4 (or a bit smaller works too)
Image: around 1/2-1 inch each

 As I was pondering what to make with the sketch, I started to look through my stash looking for a fun small image. One that would look good if repeated. I quickly found the Sprinkles Turnabout by Concord & 9th. One of the things I love about this set is that in addition to the "turnabout" part of the stamp set, it comes with a few images and sentiments too. I stamped 6 cupcakes and felt inspired to make lemon and strawberry cupcakes. I used the dotted pattern in the stamp set for the cupcake holder. The icing and cupcake itself were coloured with Copic markers.

I used these colours for the rest of my card too. Harvest Gold became the card base, stamped with a few rotations of the Sprinkles Turnabout. Aqua Mist became the base layer for the images and Berry Sorbet for the Mat. I found some old Pool Party ribbon from my stash that always coordinated nicely with Aqua Mist. Finally, I wanted a simple greeting, so I pulled out an old favorite, Birthday Basics. This has to be one of my most used birthday sentiments, after all these years!

Stamps: Sprinkles Turnabout,  Birthday Basics
Ink: Harvest Gold, Berry Sorbet, Aqua Mist, Tuxedo Black
Paper: Aqua Mist, Berry Sorbet, Harvest Gold, Stamper's Select
Accessories, etc.: Copics (E33, R22, R32, Y32, Y35),  Pool Party Ribbon

Here's Chera's card:

This sketch made me have to pull out my emoji dies cuts!! And seriously how fun are they!! I actually bought the set originally for the poop emoji that's in there but decided to use the faces today!! 

First off I die cut the circles on the white using my t-ruler to make sure they were all lined up and straight.  Once that was done I die cut them again in the yellow. I then used scrap paper to add the additional colours to their faces! Once that was done I glued it all down onto a kraft piece of paper so the rest of their faces were that colour!! I tried to replicate as best I could ;) Once that was finished I took a piece of Kraft card stock and stamped a linen background onto it just for a little more detail. I pulled out some twine for the ribbon aspect of the sketch and then popped up the panel onto the card front! Stamped the thank you and there's the finished product!!

This is such a fun card I think I’ll be making it for kids birthday cards as well!! And maybe add the poop emoji! How can you tell I live with all boys!!

Happy 2018 to you all!! Can't wait to see what you create with us! If you play along, please leave a link below:
