Trick or Treat


Hello friends!
Did you know that Lawn Fawn now has a few different embossing powders as well as glitter?  For my project today, I did a little bit of water coloring.  Let me tell you a little secret.  When you want to water color images, if you heat emboss the image with embossing powder, it makes the water coloring process so much easier! Especially if you are worried about the color going outside of the lines.

1.  Stamp images in versa mark ink.
2.  Apply Lawn Fawn Gold embossing powder onto the image.  Heat set with a heat gun.
3.  Stamp sentiment in versamark ink, apply silver embossing powder. Heat set
4.  Water color the image.
5.  To ground the image so it doesn't look like its floating on the white card stock, add green water color for grass, and blue for the sky.
6.  Die cut the white card stock with a rectangle die.
7.  Apply the diecut to pattern paper with foam adhesive.
8.  Adhere to a white card base.
9.  Embellish with twine.

Fairy Winter


Hello friends! The card I am sharing today, is a little more in depth, but I know you are capable of following along :)  This is a shaped card using the Stitched Scalloped Rectangles from Lawn Fawn.  There is a rectangle stitching on the outside of the scalloped cut line, and on the inside.  Only when you cut more than one die together, will you see both stitched lines.

1.  Lay two stitched scalloped rectangle dies, onto white card stock. Run through a die cutting machine.  You will use the outside frame. Apply foam adhesive on the inside of the frame and set aside.
2.  Die cut 2 large die cuts using the larger die with pattern paper.
3.  Place the white frame die cut over one of the pattern paper die cuts.  This will be the front of the card.
4.  Adhere the other pattern paper to the card, by scoring one inch down from the top, putting adhesive above the score line and adhering to the front of the card.
5.  Stamp fairy and house images, color in with copic markers, die cut out with coordinating dies.
6.  Adhere die cut images to the card using foam adhesive.
7.  Stamp sentiment onto white card stock with black ink. Ink blend over the image with light teal ink.  Adhere to the card using foam adhesive.
8.  Embellish with twine and sequins.

Happy Thanksgiving


Today I am sharing a decorated kraft flat bag (glassine bag).  This is a different way to store a card, give a gift card, put candy into. There are multiple ways to use them.


Using the Perfectly Plaid chill paper, I trimmed and scored paper. Then created a paper rosette with them. Adhered a pattern paper circle on top, and then layered a stamped circle as well, with colored in pumpkins.  A strip of pattern paper, was adhered to the bottom of the bag, the sentiment was stamped in black ink, as well as the pumpkin. The pumpkin was colored in using copic markers as well.

Hello friends!
One of my favorite ways to challenge myself in card making, is when I use a mini set.  Mini stamp sets are usually 2 x 3 inches, have a main image, a sentiment or two, and maybe smaller images.  It stretches creativity as well as simplifying products used.  A lot of times stampers feel overwhelmed by the amount of choices when starting a card, but I have found less is more a lot of time.

First I stamped the otter onto the card front as a mark to where my focal point was going to be.  Using green ink and a blender tool, I applied ink onto the card.  When ink blending, pick up ink onto the blender, then tap the blender onto scratch paper, if there is going to be an ink ring on the blender, this is when the sharpness of the ring will come off.  I then start blending in light circles onto the card, I repeat this over and over until satisfied with the layer and darkness of the ink.  The sentiments were stamped in black ink, the hearts and candy canes in red ink.  Once again the otter was stamped in blue ink onto white card stock, colored in with copic markers, cut out with scissors and applied to the card using foam adhesive.  I added red and green nuvo drops, then tied red & green twine into a bow, and adhered to the card front.

Merry Christmas


Hello friends! How is is mid October already?! We are on the cusp of fall and winter holidays, which means starting to create Christmas cards.
Today I am sharing a holiday card using the Stitched Ornament dies from Lawn Fawn.  I started by creating a base of white card stock at 4.25 x 5.5 inches.  I then layered it with cilantro card stock, that had been die cut with foam adhesive. The chili pepper was die cut with a rectangle first, and then I die cut the stitched ornament, because i wanted the outside stitch of the ornament to show up.  Next the ornament were die cut again with white card stock, and then stamped using different "merry christmas" sentiments in green and red ink.  These two layers were adhered to the card using foam adhesive as well.  To finish the card, "love" was stamped in black, and black single cord twine was added to embellish.
