The Magic of Trolls

Recently I was asked to create a few cards for guests at a Troll-inspired birthday party to make.  I turned to my 6 year old for inspiration since she's a Trolls fanatic.  She told me it's all about rainbows and Poppy and glitter if I couldn't make songs that literally sing!  While I worked on my projects, my 6 year old daughter also created on her own ideas.  She felt watercoloring was the way to go as well.

She did a good job, didn't she?  She used the Cool Treats stamp set and punches.  She loves the Berry Burst color and picks up everything I drop before it even has a chance to hit the floor! 

As for mine, I remembered that kids (and adults) like washi tape, punches, bling, and artistic freedom.  My first pass were these two projects featuring new products and the You're Delightful Hostess set from the new catalog.

The first card has a piece of watercolor paper colored with the watercolor pencils.  I put two strips of the Pick a Pattern washi tape on the Whisper White card base.  Then I added the watercolored paper to the card using adhesive.  The saying is stamped in Archival Black and layered on Basic Black and added to the card using dimensionals.

  • Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Watercolor Paper
  • Ink: Archival Black
  • Stamp Set: You're Delightful
  • Accessories: Watercolor Pencils, Aquapainter, Pick a Pattern Washi Tape, Dimensional, Adhesive 

The second card was inspired by Poppy's hair and headband.  The flower punch is retired but looked the most like the flowers on the headband and are up on our new mini dimensionals.  I also used the new Polka Dot Basics embossing folder on the Melon Mambo and lined the bottom using Basics Pack 1 Washi Tape.

  • Cardstock: Whisper White, Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise
  • Ink: Melon Mambo
  • Stamp Set: You're Delightful
  • Big Shot: Big Shot, Cutting Mat and Platform, Polka Dot Basics TIEF
  • Accessories: Itty Bitty Punch Pack (retired), Basic Rhinestones, Basics Pack 1 Washi Tape, Mini Dimensionals, Adhesive
