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!

Newton's Nook Designs: Inky Paws Challenge #45 Use a Doily


This is my entry for the Newton's Nook Designs: Inky Paws Challenge #45 Use a Doily.  I'm not really a doily person but I knew the perfect Newton set to use would be A Cozy Day In.  My inspiration for this card is my Aunt since she loves books and animals.  I colored the image using my Spectrum Noirs.  I looked through my stash of patterned card-stock to find paper that looked like a painted wall, window frame and wood flooring.  I added color to the doily rug and curtains using Distress Ink.  The sky blue shining through the window is also Distress Ink and the window wouldn't be complete without glass so I added some plastic packaging. I hope you enjoy and are inspired to look at doilies in a new way.

Jess Crafts Digitals: Cowboy Cat


With Father's Day fast approaching, I'm working on a card I plan to give to my Step-Father-In-Law.  First I sized the images to my desire dimensions.  Next I printed the digital out using my printer, then I used my Brother Scan n Cut to cut out the cowboy kitty.  My Spectrum Noirs were used to add color to the digital image.  I grabbed some pattern paper and finished the card off by adding a barb wire fence and the "Howdy" die from Gina Marie Designs.

Craftin Desert Divas: Hello Little One


Craftin Desert Divas is having their first coloring contest for the digital stamp "Hello Little One".  My baby cousin is expecting his first baby this month, so I made this card for when the baby arrives.  First I sized the images to my desired dimensions.  Next I printed the digital out using my printer, then I used my Brother Scan n Cut to cut out the baby giraffe digital stamp from Craftin Desert Divas.  My Spectrum Noirs were used to add color to the digital image.  I grabbed some pattern paper and finished the card off by adding some twine for the string.

Lawn Fawnatics: Challenge #1 Happy Birthday


I'm so excited to share my card for the very first Lawn Fawnatics challenge, I've been a fan of theirs since I started card-making which was probably about four years ago.  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 a older set called Life is Good (both the stamps and lawn cuts), the sentiment of "Relax" was created using an alphabet set called Violet's ABCs and the last part of the sentiment "It's Your Birthday" came from a new set called Jump for Joy.  Next I cut out the ocean waves using the Ocean Wave Borders and 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 finished the card using the Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables.  I hope this card has inspired you to use a combination of your Lawn Fawn products to make your next card.
