Sweet Get Well

Hello Everyone,

I am back today with a card for the current Lawnscaping Challenge #126  the girls have asked to use something Sweet! I never seem to have any get well cards when I need them so I used this theme for my card.
This really cute stamp set from LF Treat Yourself was a perfect choice for my card, I coloured the tubs of ice cream with copic markers in three different flavours chocolate, strawberry and vanilla and fussy cut out the tubs. I added some wink of stella clear to the bands on the tubs and the spoon, I cut out a white panel with the journaling die, I stamped the little hearts from the same stamp set with Lawn Fawn inks. Last but not least used some of the LF perfectly plaid paper for the background.

I would like to enter the Lawnscaping Challenge #126 Sweets

Thank you for stopping by, and I hope you enjoyed my creation.

Let's Celebrate!

Hello Everyone,

Today I have a card created for the Lawnscaping Challenge # 124 Celebration. It's been a while since I have entered any challenges but I am looking forward to getting back into my crafty groove , ha ha .
So without further ado, here is my fun card.
I used a ton of Lawn Fawn Stamp sets in my card, Holiday party animals, party animals, gnome sweet gnome, Hello sunshine and a birdie told me. I stamped out the images and coloured them with copic markers , I then masked them off and sponged the background with distress inks. I die cut the balloons out of the Lawn Fawn Beachside 6 x 6  paper pad, and stamped the confetti with Lawn Fawn and Memento inks. Oh I almost forgot I added a little wink of stella glitter clear to the balloons , party hat and cake.

This pic is the inside, with a sprinkling of confetti.
So grab your Lawn Fawn goodies and join the Celebration !

Thanks for joining me today, I had so much fun creating and sharing today.

Xmas List

Hi Everyone,

Today I am sharing a card made with lots of lovely Lawn Fawn stamps and dies. I would like to enter the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything Goes Showcasing Lawn Fawn Products
I used Winter Penguin, Toboggan Together,Baaah Humbug and Deck the Halls all from Lawn Fawn available from Simon Says Stamp. I love the fact that so many LF stamps and dies all work together. I coloured my images with copic markers.
Here's a close up of this cute little penguin carrying his Xmas List, I used a white gel pen for the dots on his scarf and hat. The snow flakes are pigment ink and clear embossed ( the photo doesn't do it justice) and tiny clear rhinestones for the centers. The scalloped top border is also LF paper and dies , along with LF Stitched hillside borders.

So grab your Lawn Fawn products and Enter the SSS Wednesday Challenge  

Thanks for stopping by, and sharing my Passion for Paper Stamps and Ink!

Lawn Fawn Elegance

Hello Everyone,

Today I have created a card for the Lawnscaping Challenge No 115 Sentiments , I knew straight away what I would like to make and it came together really well.
I started with LF Scripty Sayings , stamped with versamark ink and used Wow metallic platinum super fine embossing powder, beautiful colour! Then sponged spun sugar distress ink all around the edge of the background. I then stamped lots of the cute flowers from LF Penelope's Blossoms in two of the corners using LF and Hero Arts inks, some of the stamping is in 2nd generation stamping as I wanted to keep the soft and pretty look and was really happy how it turned out, the dots at the edge is washi tape, and I also used a gold gel pen to add some little gold dots beyond the flowers.
Just another pic to show you the lovely embossing, I am really impressed with the Wow embossing powders, very smooth and great results!
So grab your sentiments and get crafty in the Lawnscaping Challenge No 115 Sentiments

Thanks for stopping by , I hope you enjoyed my card.

Birthday Bunny!

Hi Everyone,
Today I have another cute card using some Mama Elephant stamps & dies, I also used the great tic tac toe board for 7 Kids College Fund Challenge #131 Anything Goes  
I created the background with stamps from the Mama Elephant Sunny Skies, using the solid circles, I stamped these in Avery Elle pigment ink colours, then highlighted some of them with prisma pencils. The bunny and cupcake from Carnival Cupcakes stamp set is coloured with copic markers and pencils.
This is the fun tic tac toe board at the challenge blog , I used Rectangles, Circles & Lace for my creation.
Also a close up of this super cute bunny. I love the combination of copic's and prisma pencils,  I also added some wink of stella clear for the party hat and the top of the cupcake, very pretty irl.

Thanks for visiting me today and I hope you enjoyed my card, if you have any questions I will try to answer them.
