For the LOLs - Three Awesome Cards from Suzanne

Hello Crafty Friends

OMG... are you ready for some emoji fun?
Today Suzanne shares her fabulous cards. They're so happy and fun!!

Hi everyone.  Well this month the kit is such a lot of fun with that incredible Emoji love paper.  I just had to make some fun cards with it.  I hope you enjoy them.

The first two cards are very simple, but I think they are really fun. 


The first card I made using the Vertical elements page and I used the lovely 4 x 6 with the beautiful colourful stripes and the three 'Happies' going down the page. I trimmed this 4 x 6 cut- apart a little on each side because I layered it on another 4 x 6 cut apart with the black and white frame around the outside.  Then I simple added the word 'birthday' to the bottom of the 'happies' using a kaisercraft letter die.  I cut out three emoji faces with the spellbinder die from the July kit, coloured them with the Distress Oxide ink (fossilised amber) also from the July kit, and popped them on top of the 'happies' with a little foam tape to pop them up.  Then I put some pink enamel dots from my stash in the top left corner and the bottom right corner.  I layered this all on a pink card base.

The second card I made is very simple also.  I used the 'we go together' 6 x 4 cut-apart.  This one is so fun, I just had to use it for a card.  I layered the 'we go together' 4 x 6 on top of a piece of black cardstock and then on a pink card base.  I then stickled that poop and put some glossy accents on the eyes before I added some of the Copper coloured sequins from the sequin ribbon to add a bit of a pop to the poop card.

The next card was such fun to make.  I used a square piece of white card stock and the BoBunny stamp, along with the distress oxide and some low tack tape.  I taped off a half inch area all around the outside of the white card stock and coloured it with fossilised amber distress oxide ink from the July kit.  Then I stamped the small circle stamp from the BoBunny stamp set from the kit on top of the coloured section so that it resembled lots of tiny emoji faces.

 I then used tumbled glass distress ink to colour the rest of the white cardstock.

After that was finished I cut out and coloured quite a few emoji's.  I also used the smaller circle die to cut out black and red cardstock so that it could be used to colour the parts that are cut out of the faces (eyes, mouth, etc)  and blue cardstock to cut out tears.

After that I used my gumball machine die from Paper Roses to cut out a gumball machine.  I cut it several times so that I had some dimension and so that I could add emoji faces inside the gumball machine as if they were gumballs.  I made the gumball holder as I would a shaker card but I secured each emoji face with foam tape so that they didn't move around.

I then coloured the gumball machine with some of my Inka Gold paint so that it took on the shine of a real gumball machine and added the gumball machine to the left hand side of the card.  On the right side I added some emoji's that have escaped the gumball machine  along with some of the speech bubbles from one of the pages.

I popped the emoji faces and the speech bubbles up on foam tape

I hope you enjoyed having a look at the three cards.  OMG, they were a lot of fun to make, seriously.
