Rainbow Birthday SMASH!

Springtime and rainy days and cool sunshine and rainbows... at least that's what we're lucky enough to have right now here in northern California! For those of you covered in feet of snow, maybe these little pinatas can cheer you up!

I created this birthday card with the Lawnfawnatics color inspiration in mind... Happy 1st birthday Lawn Fawnatics!

This card is also one of those that looks super simple but it really took me almost an entire day to make. I'm sure I was over-thinking it in the moment but it was definitely time consuming. I did love that I used a lot of Copic markers that I otherwise didn't touch often! 

Each little pinata is colored with a minimum of 10 Copic markers within the same color family. The llamas and sentiment are from Lawn Fawn Year Seven stamp set and the confetti, party hats, and noise makers are from Lawn Fawn Party Animal.

My bestie will be receiving this card in about a month for her birthday! I know she won't throw it in the trash ;)

Hoppy Easter Bunnies

Easter is only two weeks away! Which means spring is right around the corner (even if it doesn't quite feel like it)! Now I know that Peeps are a love em or hate em kind of treat, but for me they've been a favorite of since I was little. Poke a hole in the plastic and wait two days... there's your ideal Peep! 

These little colorful bunny Easter cards are of course inspired by that favorite sugar coated marshmallow snack :) I also created the cards for the Simon Says Stamp Easter Inspired challenge and the current LawnFawnatics "Fun with Dies" challenge.

Each of the bunnies and bunbun accessories were stamped on Neenah Solar White Cardstock, colored with Copic Markers, and fussy cut with detail scissors. I used pastel colors for all the bunnies and eggs. The die cuts were all colored with Distress Inks in very light shades to go with the spring time vibe.

Now for the Lawnfawnatics Fun with Dies challenge, this card uses Grassy Border die, Stitched Journaling Card die, and Hello Sunshine dies (which I never actually bought the stamp set for... maybe I should get on that!). The grass was shaded with Distress Ink "Mowed Lawn", the clouds in Distress Ink "Tumbled Glass", and the sun in Distress Ink "Squeezed Lemonade." Of course the stamp is also from Lawn Fawn "Hoppy Easter".

Thanks for joining me this weekend! Hope you all get some sunshine soon :)
