Robot Happy Birthday

Hi Everyone,

It feels great to get back to card making after such a long time - I've been reorganising my craft room and, what with work and other distractions, it's taken forever to do. Well now it's done and I intend to be getting my craft on as often as possible.  

And what better way to get back into the swing of things than with a CASology challenge. It's week number 166 over on their blog and the theme is science - what a great excuse to use these super cute robots from the Beep Boop stamp set from Lawn Fawn. I added strips of washi to the background to make the images pop. This tape is really awesome and reminds me so much of the exercise books I used when I was in science class at school. 

Before I show you any images of my project I just want to apologise for the slightly dodgy lighting in the photos. Unfortunately I managed to damage my light diffuser box and one of my lamps in the great craft room redesign and I'm waiting on new supplies to arrive. I probably should have waited unil the replacements arrived before photographing projects but I just couldn't wait to get back to blogging. Any comments gratefully received as I love hearing from my crafty friends:

I started off with a card base made from Neenah Solar White 110lb cardstock. Next I adhered some strips of washi tape ont the front to make a background (I'm not sure where I got this tape as it's been in my stash for a while I think).

Next I stamped images from Lawn Fawn's Beep Boop stamp set onto more solar white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured the robots with Copic markers and fussy cut cut them.

To make more robots look more metallic I covered then in a layer of clear Wink of Stella marker and then finished off with a layer of Ranger glossy accents. Finally I adhered the images and sentiments to my card with different thicknesses of foam tape and glue dots. It doesn't really come accos on the photos but it adds some extra visual interest to an otherwise simple card in real life.

That's all from me for now. Don't forget to check out the CASology blog post for all the other great projects. Clicking on the image below will take you straight there:


  1. Too cute. Great start to getting back.

  2. Very cute card. Lighting is not that important in my mind, and your card looks great. Love the use of washi tape (one of my faves).

  3. A-dorable, Jennie! Love this so much! The addition of the glossy accents is perfect!
    Thanks so much for joining us over at CASology! :)

    1. Thank-you so much Melisa - such a fun challenge xx

  4. This is fabulous! Love these glossy little robots and your washi background is such a cool backdrop.
