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.

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 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.

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.
