Lawn Fawn's Year Seven - Piñata Smash Interactive Swing Card


Hello everyone!

Today I have a fun and interactive birthday card to share with you all. Not sure what the technical or proper name of a card like this would be, so I'm calling it a swing card because the pinata swings freely back and forth. This card feature's Lawn Fawn's Year Seven Stamp set or as I like to call it the Pinata Smash set 😉

I think a card like this would be fun for any birthday celebration!


To see the card in motion and to find out how you can make one yourself check out my latest process video and if you haven't yet I would love for you to subscribe 😊

Hope this card has inspired you to create your own fun interactive swing card.

Hidden Inlaid Die Cut/Camouflage Technique - Dahlias for Zulmira


Hello my friends!

Today I have a beautiful birthday card to share with you featuring Wplus9's Beautiful Bouquet Dahlia and MFT's Little Letters Die-namics. This birthday card was made for a very special family friend. As you can see from the card, her name is Zulmira. I personally know what is it like to have such a unique name, and finding anything personalized is impossible unless it is custom made. When I receive anything with my name, it feels extra special because it's so uncommon. So that feeling is exactly what I had in mind when I created this. 


I had never done an inlaid die cut or camouflage technique before, but I am so happy with how it turned out. I'm pretty sure I will be doing more in the future! I really love how the letters pop off the card without taking away from the beautiful stamped design.


Here is how I finished the inside.
Love this scripty stamped birthday sentiment from Clearly Besotted.


I called on my inner Kathy Racoosin when I was coloring this, but I am no expert and about half way through I thought it I thought it was going to be scrapped! Luckily I kept going and love the end results 😍 I have learned that watercoloring takes patience and lots of layers...so just be patient! 

Here is the process video of my card for those interested in watching how it all came together. For a list of supplies I used check out the links below.
