Lawn Fawn: Mermaid For You

I may have let out a little gasp and sigh when I first saw the images of this stamp set.  Few things are more magical than a mermaid.  The sentiments are so cute and punny and really just make me happy. I am talking about the new summer release from Lawn Fawn called Mermaid for You stamp and coordinating die set.

I love making shaped cards, and I knew this was going to be a circle card.  So that was my starting point.  I stamped the images, and then started coloring in the different mermaids and sea creatures.  This was how I determined the color scheme and matched the card stock accordingly.  Since this is a stamp and coordination die set, it made it easier to create depth by die cutting a few images and popping them up using foam adhesive.  I use foam adhesive on every project I create, it really creates the perfect amount of depth that prevents a project from looking too flat.  The sea grass was created by stamping different tones of aqua using a Mini MISTI tool.

Make sure you head on over to the Lawn Fawn Blog for a chance to win these products as well as seeing some really beautiful projects using the same stamp set.

Lawn Fawn: Lovable Legends

Hello there!
Today I am sharing a card using the Lovable Legend stamp set from Lawn Fawn, as well as the rest of the LF designers.  Head on over to the Lawn Fawn Blog to check out all of the great projects using this set, as well as a chance to win todays products.

These critter sets are so unbelievably fun to create with, plus I love to color and coloring a mythical creature like a Kraken is so cool.

My husband is deployed right now, so I created this card with him in mind.  I'm going to place it in the next box of goodies I send to him.
I have no idea what color a Kraken is, but it was fun to imagine, so I used an assortment of blue and green Copic markers.  I stamped the image, die cut it out, then colored it in.  I set it aside while i created a little bit of depth on the front of the card.  I created waves with two different inks, and stamped stars on the top as well.  Adhered the kraken die cut using foam adhesive and then embellished using Lawn Fawn twine.

Lawn Fawn: Just For You

You know how you plan out a card in your head, and sometimes it doesn't work out, but sometimes it turns out better than what was in your head?  This is todays card.  I love it when cards are easy to create.  The Lawn Fawn designers are showcasing the Just For You stamp set, and Just for You labels stamp set & coordinating dies.  If you click on over to the Lawn Fawn blog, all of the projects are all there in one spot, as well as you get a chance to win todays products!

These two stamp sets and dies are amazing, you really need to go check out all of the projects that the designers did, because they are all so different, cool and used in really neat ways.

First of all, can we just talk about the LF card stock?  Dude the 10 colors are so pretty, bright and fun...they make me happy.

The little scalloped circle were created by using VersaMark ink, stamping the scalloped circle stamp onto the solid card stock and die cutting it out using the coordinating die.  Sometime when you use the same color ink pad, the ink blends into the card stock.  I wanted the stamp to show up a little bolder, thats why i chose to use the VersaMark.  
Each sliver of the card stock is cut 1/4 inch wide, and then adhered down onto the card base.  The scalloped circles were adhered down using foam squares, and so were the mailbox and card (which were colored in with Copic markers)

Lawn Fawn: Little Bundle

Hello there!  Yay its Friday!!
The Lawn Fawn design team is starting the March Inspiration week and the stamp set we are showcasing today is the Little Bundle and coordinating dies sets.
If you click on over to the Lawn Fawn blog, you will see all of the projects in one place, as well as getting the chance to win todays products.

I don't know about you, but it seems like a lot of people I know are either pregnant or just having a baby lol.  So this stamp set is perfect timing for me and all of the baby cards I need to make.  To create the background on the pink card stock, i stamped the images using Versamark ink.  VersaMark is a watermark ink pad, which is really cool.  I paper pieced the little dress using the Lawn Fawn plaid pattern paper, and the sentiment is actually two different stamps, there is another stamp that says "baby boy" so this is a very versatile set.  It is for boys and girls.

Lawn Fawn: Rooting for You

Hello there!  Are you following along with the February Inspiration week from Lawn Fawn so far?  What do you think?  I am constantly amazed at the ideas that come out of that company.  Today I am sharing a card using the Rooting for You stamp set and coordinating die set.  What I love about this stamp set is that is has solid stamps!

Head on over to the Lawn Fawn Blog for more great inspiration and for a chance to win this set!

My card is a little clean and simple for you today.  I chose to use the color palette of red, orange and yellow.  I usually try to stick with 3 colors when I create a card...Oh I have green too (but not a lot more of an accent).  A card doesn't seem so overwhelming when you keep a color scheme simple.

Lawn Fawn: Fairy Friends

Hello there!
Long time no blogging!!  I have had a crazy month and a half, but I will talk about that in another post.

Today, I am sharing a card using the new stamp set from Lawn Fawn called Fairy Friends.  If you head on over to the Lawn Fawn Blog, there are many more projects using this set, along with a new stamping tool called the Stamp Shammy. (plus you can win both!)

I started by stamping the images in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I chose this ink because it is my favorite ink to use when I am using copic markers to color in an image.  After I stamped the images, I die cut them using the coordinating dies.  I colored in both of the images with Copic markers.  I then set them aside while I started putting the card together.

1.  Stamp/die cut images.
2.  Color in images using Copic markers.
3.  Die cut Perfectly Plaid paper and Peacock card stock using the stitched rectangle dies.
4.  Adhere the rectangle die cuts to the card using foam adhesive.
5.  Die cut Sunflower card stock using a banner die.
6.  Stamp sentimen with black ink onto the banner die cut.  Adhere to the card.
7.  Adhere the fairy die cuts to the card using foam adhesive.
8.  Tie a bow with the twine, adhere to the card using Dodz.
