Happy Birthday Card & Video

Hi everyone,

I'm back with a birthday card using the fun images from MFT's Whole Herd.

I started out by water colouring the background with Cracked Pistachio distress ink and stamped the sentiment with Memento Onyx black ink from the same set.

 I then cut a frame using the MFT Inside & Out Diagonal Stitched rectangle dies to cut out the frame and popped it up on foam tape on top of the water coloured background.  I cut out the fence from white card stock and glued it directly to the back panel.

I added some white dots for dimension to the background with the Pico embellisher.  I coloured the cow in with copics and used the die to cut it out and popped it up on foam tape.

We have the Lawn Fawn Pre-Order until August 9th, so head over to make sure you get your hands on the newest Fall/Winter Release.

Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon!

Happy Birthday - Lawn Fawn

Hi everyone,

I'm back with a card that I made for a family member.

I love watching Sandy Allnock when she creates the most stunning backgrounds and thought I would try my hand at it too.  I'm certainly not up there yet but I think it turned out okay and I hope you do too.

I did a lot of masking for this one but it's worth it because you get such great depth with your images. With that I will let the pictures tell the story and the list of supplies will be listed below.

Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon!!!

I love you - Shaker Bookmark

Hi everyone,

I found this bookmark I made a long time ago and I don't think I ever shared it.  

I used one of the Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle dies and I made it longer so that it could be a bookmark.  I stamped the woodgrain background in cotton candy ink from SSS and then used the sentiment from the Love you S'more set and used Memento Onyx black ink.  

I then used the Pretty Pink Posh film strip die and popped it up on foam tape to create a shaker.
I coloured in the monsters from the Lawn Fawn Monster Mash and coloured them in with my copics (R14, R17, R29 R39).  I added in the seed beads which I got from Michaels but you can get these almost anywhere.   To finish it off I took some Lawn Trimmings in Peppermint and added it to the top.

Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon!!!

It's your day!

Hi everyone,

I know I've been missing from my blog lately but I will be back in full force soon.  The kitchen renovations are just about done and I will share some pictures when it's all said and done.

I have a card today made with supplies from the June and July SSS Card Kits.

I started with a smooshing technique for the banner die cut panel with Salty Ocean distress ink.  I then cut out the card base with the Lawn Fawn Stitched banners die from the cream card stock from the kit as well as two more from white card stock.  I adhered the cream piece to the base with liquid adhesive and used some thick twine from my stash to fill in the holes on the base.

I then took the square die that comes with the Stitched Duo banner die and cut out a piece of vellum and glued it to the base.  I took some glossy accents and glued the Anchor clip and tied a bow with a piece of twine from May Arts. I cut out the banner from the WPlus9 banner dies and used the sentiment from the June card kit "It's your day" and stamped it with grey in

Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon!!
