Love Ya Bunches


Love Ya Bunches is a limited edition stamp & die set in collaboration with Ellen Hutson's United We Flourish & sold exclusively at EllenHutson.  The stamps and dies come together in a set, so no separate purchase.
I decided to create a stamped background using the monkeys, heart and bananas.  I did this for a few reasons, one because creating a custom pattern paper is always fun, and two, not everyone likes to diecut or has access to a die cut machine.  I did die cut the panel using a rectangle stitched die to make the card look professional and finished, however you could just use a paper trimmer.  I used Marvy alcohol markers to color in the images.

Aloha


Ever since I received this stamp set I have been smitten.  There is nothing about pineapples with smiling faces, that i don't love.  Its just "so cute".  
I decided to create a custom stamped background using the pineapples and then colored them in using copic markers. The "aloha" sentiment was cut out using a die and foam adhesive sheets.

Happy Fathers Day


Lawn Fawn is having an inspiration week and showcasing some of the newest stamp sets.  Today I am sharing a Fathers Day Card using the new Pland & Simple stamp set.  Being my husband is an aviator, I am loving all of the different creative combinations I can do with these stamps/dies.  Since Fathers Day is tomorrow, I chose the "you're the best" sentiment for the plane banner and the "happy fathers day" sentiment for the card.  I love the combination of blue and greens, so I colored in the banner and plane to coordinate with the pattern paper.

Palm Trees & Ocean Waves Accents


Hello Friends and happy Monday!  Today I am sharing a shaped circle card, using a few of the new products from Lawn Fawn.  I live in Florida, so a die set that has a few different sized palm trees...I am totally smitten!  Most of this card, was created using dies.  The stamped sentiment and the twine are the only items that are not from a die.
For me, i like to use a lot of foam adhesive when I use dies.  It just makes your project "pop" as well as giving the card dimension. Plus, raised layers make any project look a little more polished.
To make sure each layer of die cut, fit perfectly into the circle.  I would die cut the lawn, waves etc, and then get the circle die, and then die cut it again.  You could just use scissors, but I am all about uniformity, so I die cut twice.

You're Claw-some


This coordinating stamp and die set called You're Claw-some reminds me of my childhood, and my children's too.  I don't know how many quarters I wasted trying to win something out of these claw machines.  Occasionally my husband would win one for our children, but man its hard to win!
This set is so cute, and has so many great sentiments. It would be great to give to just about anyone!

Upon A Star


There is just something so adorable about a constellation stamp set, with hearts, constellations and critters looking up to the sky.  Its awesome!  I decided to ink up the card stock with a few different shades of blue ink.  Then I stamped a galaxy/milky way type of stars.  I stacked the layers with foam adhesive to give the card some depth and then added twine.  This was a fairly simple card to create, and I actually will "case" myself and make more!

Bun In The Oven


Hi Friends! Just a clean and simple card today, with a technique.  I used 3 different inks and a mini blending tool, to create the background. The trick is to use the ink lightly and to keep building it up until you like the color.  This does take a little bit of time to create a seamless blend, but its worth it.  I stamped the sentiment in black ink, as well as the images.  I colored the images in with copic markers, cut them out and then adhered them to the card using foam adhesive.  To embellish, I added some twine in the corner.

I Love You Sew Much


Hello Friends! Welcome to the April Inspiration Week for Lawn Fawn.  The designers are using the Stamp and Die set Sewn With Love today.  Its a set with sewing element images and perfect "pun" sentiments.  Head on over to the Lawn Fawn Blog to check out all of the projects created as well have a chance to win this set.

I started by blending Merman ink onto the card front with a mini blending tool, once the ink was blended and dried, I stamped my sentiment.  The images were stamped onto white cardstock, colored in with copic markers and then cut out with coordinating dies.  I adhered the diecuts to the card using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam squares, and added the twine bow using an adhesive dot.  To ground the card a little bit, I adhered a strip of yellow cardstock, to the bottom of the card.

Wonderful Window


Hello friends!  Today I am sharing an interactive card using the Wonderful Window die and Meow You Doin stamp/die set from Lawn Fawn.  The window die, will come in 3 pieces, the flowers, the window and the flower pot that the flowers can easily slide into. What makes this interactive, is that the windows can open (if you choose).
I paired the window scene with this adorable cat from the Meow You Doin stamp set.  Many Lawn Fawn customers and fans have long requested a cat set, and now there is one.  There are several cat images and sentiments in this set, to keep all of the cat lovers satisfied!
I stamped and colored in the cat image with copic markers, before die cutting out the image with a coordinating die, and adhering it to the card.  To give a little contrast to the flowers, i colored the tips of the tulips with a red copic marker.  I was running out of room to stamp a sentiment, so I thought I would stamp the sentiment onto the flower pot.
To give the card dimension, I used foam adhesive on most of the layers.  Giving depth to a card usually gives it that extra polish that makes it look professional.

Elphie Selphie

Hello Friends!
Long time no blog!!  I was sick for about a month with viral bronchitis, and it was horrible.  So glad i have stopped coughing!

Today, I am sharing a fun card using the latest die/stamp set from Lawn Fawn called Elphie Selphie.  I mean how freaking cute is that name?  Love it!


I used quite a bit of new product on this card.  Making it brought me so much joy.  Look at those colors! I die!  The birthday cakes were stamped using Versa Mark ink to create a watermark effect.  The balloons were colored with Copic markers (elephant too) and then I put a clear glitter ink over the tops.
Super simple, but oh so cute!!

Seasons Greetings



Today I am sharing a fun card perfect for the Holidays, which means one less Christmas card that I need to make!
I used the Home For the Holidays mini stamp set paired with the Tiny Towns border, both from Lawn Fawn, to create this card.  I die cut plaid christmas paper with the border die, and then inked the top edges to make the houses pop.  Before I adhered the border down, I stamped the trees in a selection on Lawn Fawn green inks.  The car was colored in using copic markers, and I used twine to wrap around the tree to have it look like the tree was tied down to the car.

Perfectly Plaid Winter


I have no idea when my obsession with plaid started, but if I had to guess it was early 80's?  I love plaid shirts, plaid pants, skirts etc...so when Lawn Fawn started making plaid paper, my mind exploded.  Plaid + paper crafting = me very happy!!

Today I am sharing a fun treat bag that I decorated using the Plaid Winter 6x6 paper, stamps and dies. This years winter release from Lawn Fawn is ridiculous, and I mean that in the best possible way.  From 3 plaid collections, stamps, dies and inks I am in crafty heaven!!

Head on over to the Lawn Fawn blog, to see how the other designers used this paper in their projects!

Scripty Merry & Wishes


Many years ago, I bought several of these kraft coffee bags/treat bags, just to have on hand.  They are great to stamp on, put stickers on or in my case today, alter with pattern paper and die cuts.

Using Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Christmas paper, I adhered some 6x6 pattern paper onto the front of the bag.  I then die cut red card stock using the tiny town border die & adhered it to the bottom of the bag.  Next the grey card stock was die cut and adhered to the bag.  

I grabbed a sheet of foam adhesive, trimmed it town, peeled on side of the sticker off and applied some red card stock to it.  Next I placed the "merry" & "wishes" dies onto the card stock, and die cut them.  Since they were diecut onto a foam adhesive sheet, when I pulled the diecuts out, foam adhesive was cut perfectly on the back side of the red card stock.  Which made it so easy to adhere to the grey die cut circle.

To embellish I added twine onto a clip which helps keep the bag closed.

Tiny Tags



Hello Friends! Lately I have only wanted to make treat boxes, pillow boxes or altered bags.  Maybe its because the holidays are quick approaching or because you don't have to follow the same design rules at you would if you were making a card.

I have a few pillow boxes that I made, using the Tiny Tags Sayings stamp set as well as the Tiny Tag dies.  The two kraft boxes were stamped completely to create a custom pattern paper, and then on the red pillow box, I stamped little hearts inside the plaid boxes.  The heart and star tags were distressed with ink, before stamping the sentiment.

Perfectly Plaid Christmas


Hello Friends!  
Today I am sharing a very quick and easy project, decorated candy tubes.  I used the Perfectly Plaid Christmas 6x6 Paper Pad, a paper trimmer, adhesive and twine.  Each pattern was trimmed to 1/2 inch to 4 inches, adhesive was applied on the back of the paper, and then adhered to the container.  To embellish, I added twine.
What is great about decorating these tubes, is how simple it would be to customize for an event.  You just change the paper to suit your needs.

Snow Cool Distressed & Embossed Card



Hello Friends!
Are you following along with the Lawn Fawn September Inspiration Week?  Today I am sharing a card using a few stamping techniques that I enjoy doing, heat embossing and ink distressing.  I started by inking up the snow background stamp from the Snow Cool set using VersaMark ink.  VersaMark ink is a watermark and embossing ink.  I applied clear embossing powder over the stamped image, and then heat embossed the card using a heat gun.  Using the Blue Jay ink from Lawn Fawn and a blending tool, I applied ink to the front of the card.  I started at the top of the card, working my way down to the bottom, to create a gradient look.  I stamped the sentiment in the same blue jay ink, and added the little snow flakes too.  The penguins were stamped, diecut and colored, then adhered to the card using foam adhesive to give the card some depth.  To embellish twine and sequins were added.

This stamp and die set is called Snow Cool, and is being showcased today over on the Lawn Fawn Blog.  Head on over, post a comment on the blog for a chance to win todays prizes, look at beautiful projects and hopefully leave inspired!
Have a great day!

Sprinkled With Joy Gift Tag & Bag


Hello friends!
I decorated a bag, perfect for storing cookies using the Sprinkled With Joy stamp set and dies from Lawn Fawn.  Its a really cute baking set, focusing on sugar cookies.  I love that there are a few different dies for the stove, including one where the oven opens (as shown).  The cute factor and genius behind this set is ridiculous.

Some times there just is not room to add a sentiment on a tag, thats why i love to stamp on bags as well.  Its an extension of the tag and just completes the project nicely.

There are a ton of projects using this set over on the Lawn Fawn Blog, they are also giving away this stamp and die set!  Head on over and leave a comment, and leave a little inspired!

Frosty Fairy Friends


Hello friends!
There is still another week of Summer, however its all about the Holidays over on the Lawn Fawn Blog.  Today is the start of the September Inspiration Week, and I am sharing a fun stamped card using the Frosty Fairy Friends stamp set.

I stamped the bottom panel of the card front using a few different Lawn Fawn inks, then distressed the edges and center, so it wouldn't be so stark white.  I added a few different pattern paper from the Perfectly Plaid Christmas collection, to complete the first layer of the card front.  I die cut white card stock using the dotted circle die, stamped around the edges, stamped the sentiment and adhered it to the card using foam tape.  I stamped, diecut and then colored in the fairies using copic markers, and adhered them to the circle die cut.  To embellish I added glitter to the wings, and some twine to tie a bow.

Lawn Fawn: Thanks a Bushel



Hello friends!
As children all over the US head back to school, I decided to make a fun teachers gift.  Using the new stamp set and dies called Thanks a Bushel from Lawn Fawn, I made this plain muslin bag into something cute.


I'm not sure where I bought these plain muslin bags, but if I had to guess, probably a $1 section at a store.  With black ink, I stamped the apples and basket of apples onto the bottom of the bag.  I made sure that each time I stamped that there was plenty of ink on the stamp and that I applied firm even pressure.  I then colored in the images with copic markers.  Since these markers bleed, I had to lightly color near the edges.  I stamped the hearts in a red ink.  I die cut the tag from red felt and die cut a circle using burlap.  Using the same circle die, I die cut a white circle, trimmed it down and stamped a sentiment.

For more great project using this set, as well as a chance to win some fabulous product, head on over to the Lawn Fawn Blog.

Materials Used:
Lawn Fawn Thanks a Bushel stamp and dies
Lawn Fawn stitched tag
Lawn Fawn circle die
copic markers
Lawn Fawn lobster ink
red felt
burlap
muslin bag
