Lawn Fawnatics: Challenge #12 Create a Scene!


This is my entry for the Lawn Fawnatics: Challenge #12 Create a Scene! I love Lawn Fawn and Newton's Nook Designs so much that I decided I needed to do a collaboration of my favorite stamp companies.  I used the Lawn Fawn set Out of this World and the Newton's Nook Designs set Cosmic Newton.  I love using the Scalloped Box Card Pop-Up die for the outer space scene, it just really brings the card to life even more. The galaxy background was created using watercolors.  I colored up Newton with my Spectrum Noirs to look like my Logan, I also used my Sepctrum Noirs to color the planets.  I felt the planets needed a little shine which is hard to see but I used my Spectrum Noir sparkle glitter clear overlay pen.  I hope this card inspires you to combine your favorite company to make your next card.  I hope you enjoy!






Newton's Nook Designs: Inky Paws Challenge #54 Theme Challenge - Use Polka Dots


This is my entry for the Newton's Nook Designs: Inky Paws Challenge #54 Theme Challenge, use polka dots. I love this little cowboy Newton and knew I needed to try and use polka dots that wouldn't take away from his rugged appearance and attitude so I decided the best option was the sky.  I added polka dots to my card by using a polka dot stencil and Distress Ink, I added some velum clouds to tone down the sky as well as the sun.  The desert away was created using Distress Oxide Inks.  I colored up Newton wit my Spectrum Noirs to look like my Logan.  I hope you enjoy!

I hope you enjoy this card it was made using the Newton's Nook Designs stamp Newton Rides West!

Neat and Tangled: Little Tangles Challenge #83: Birthday


I'm excited to be playing along in the Little Tangles birthday challenge, I've had this adorable Yo Ho Ho stamp set for awhile from Neat and Tangled.  My boyfriend of the last 10 years loves pirates and this set is so adorable, I knew I needed to use it to make him a birthday card which is only a few days after this challenge closes.  The birthday aspects of this card in my opinion is the treasure chest which is holding the presents and the "Happy Birthday" sentiment.  I'm not a huge fan of using sentiments on the front of cards but if you notice very carefully "Happy Birthday" is stamped in the water to ensure the focal point of the card is the adorable pirates and their kitty.  The most adorable thing in this set is the kitty and this kitty is colored to look like our Storm who happens to share the same birthday as my boyfriend.  The sand is created using sand paper, the ocean was created using color bursts and the images were colored using my Spectrum Noir markers.  I hope you enjoy this card and are inspire to use the Yo Ho Ho stamp set.

I colored the image using my Spectrum Noirs.  I hope you enjoy!

Lawn Fawnatics: Challenge #8 Summertime Fun!

I'm so excited to share my card for the Lawn Fawnatics challenge #8 Summertime Fun.  I love Lawn Fawn so much that I would say fifty percent of my stamps are Lawn Fawn and seventy-five percent of my dies are Lawn Fawn.  I created this card using Mermaid for You! The sand was traced out using Stitched Hillside Borders but I cut the sand with scissors since its sand paper so I wanted to protect my dies.  The color for the images was done using my Spectrum Noirs.  I water colored the ocean and cut it out using the Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables.  I finished the card with the Scalloped Rectangle Stackables.  Below is a close up of my favorite part of the card.  I hope this card has inspired you to use your Lawn Fawn products to make your next card.

Newton's Nook Designs: Inky Paws Challenge #49 Sketch Challenge

It's been awhile since I've played in the Inky Paws Challenges, I've created cards using the themes but haven't posted in awhile.  So I was excited to complete the challenge, even though this week as been a little difficult since I've been sick as my boyfriends says it couldn't have been at a better time since I already had a week off and was having a staycation but I hate being sick on my time off.  I did get sick after seeing Cars 3 since there was a sick child in the theater who was the only other family in the theater and I was sick before but oh well I guess since now I'm dealing with the summer head cold, hopefully its over soon.

I hope you enjoy this card it was made using the Newton's Nook Designs stamp Newton Loves Cake!
