Lawn Fawn Video {7.4.23} Kara’s Mixed Media Card with Build-A-Drink

Save the Date! Our next Create with Us Live is on July 12th! We can’t wait to talk all things crafty while making cards with new Summer 2023 sets! Make plans to join Kelly Marie and Jenn, it will be so much fun! You will find all the details to craft along with us, HERE.

Happy Independence Day, friends! Kara has a fun mixed media technique to share with us today! Then she will create a fun card using Build-A-Drink and Build-A-Drink Cocktail Add-On. You can watch the video tutorial below or click HERE to watch at our YouTube channel.

Thank you so much for watching!

Kara created the “1960’s kitchen of your dreams” to highlight our Build-A-Drink and Build-A-Drink Cocktail Add-On sets! Her yummy strawberry margarita is a perfect theme for a hot summer day!

To create the “tile backsplash”, Kara used the Honeycomb Stencil to add a blue hexagon pattern to her card front. Then she stenciled again with Clear Stencil Paste over the top to give the tile a shiny finish!

The Pastel Pearlescent Vellum looks so cool as a “strawberry margarita” in the Build-A-Drink Cocktail Add-On glass!

Kara used a fun mixed media technique to create the marbled “countertop”! She filled a paper plate with dollar store shaving cream, then added drops of Distress Ink refill. Using a craft spatula, she created the marbled pattern. She lightly pressed a plain white cardstock panel into the shaving cream. Then she lifted it up and scraped off the shaving cream revealing the marbled pattern of the ink. This is such a fun technique!

The So Smooth blender, cocktail glass, strawberries and ice cube tray fill up the left side of the vintage-looking counter, while the Build-A-Drink Cocktail Add-On margarita sits on a “table” in foreground, filling the space to the right.

Kara also used the marbled paper to die cut Scripty Enjoy bringing the fun texture to the inside of the card, pairing it with a sentiment from On the Beach.

Thank you so much Kara for this amazing 60s inspired kitschy kitchen design! I love seeing that shaving cream technique again!


Thanks so much for visiting, have an amazing day!

Mona’s Creative Smoothie Birthday Card

It’s time for a brand-new week and some amazing inspiration with Mona! Today she has another beautiful card featuring her amazing coloring skills!

Mona used the tall mason jar from Summertime Charm to “fill” with a yummy-looking fruit smoothie! I love how her coloring gives the jar the look of glass.

For all the fruit she combined How You Bean Strawberries Add-On, Be Hap-pea for the blueberries and the orange slices are from Summertime Charm. She cleverly used the heart-shaped pizza from Pizza My Heart to create a special waffle!

To learn how Mona colored the “waffle” and “berries” so realistically, you may want to watch THIS video.

Thank you so much, Mona for sharing this gorgeous card with us today! Your coloring is always so amazing!
