Tags and ornament holders

Here are a few projects that I created for Foundations and Decor. Some fun tags, and an ornament picture holder!

I am kind of obsessed with the fuzzy yarn that I used on the tags, it made them extra cozy!

I painted the wood parts of the ornament, and then decorated it with diecuts before adding a picture of my son when he was younger. 

Valentines Cards

I have been the worst blogger and I apologize. 2019 has been a very hard year for me and my family. But I still love sharing my projects with all of you! Here are a few projects using the Valentines release from Lawn Fawn.
For this first card, I diecut the stitched hearts that just made an impression onto the cardstock. Then very carefully adding ink to each heart and stamping a butterfly in the same ink. I diecut white cardstock with the "friends" die and finished by adding twine.

This was such a fun card to make. I gathered a bunch of pink/red inks and then stamped the heart in the different colors, leaving room for a sentiment, stamped in black. A true one layer card.

For me coloring is so relaxing, and on this card I was able to watercolor and use copic markers to create a vibrant puffer card.

Does white on white or in this case cream on cream ever go out of style? No, no it does not. 

Narwhals & Sugar cookies!

 Last month I was in Kansas with a bunch of crafty friends, and I was able to complete a few cards for this Lawn Fawn Inspiration week!  Up first is a row of Winter Narwhals.  They each were stamped using the River Rock ink, and then colored in with colored pencils and gamsol.  The panel was blended using Distress Oxide inks, and then splattered with gold Kuretake watercolors. Each narwhal was adhered using foam adhesive. A double knotted twine bow was added for embellishment.

Up next is the Sugar Cookie add-on stamp set. Each cookie was stamped in the new Sugar Cookie ink, then colored in using Daniel Smith Watercolors.  Glossy accents was placed on each cookie, then once dry hand cut. Glitter was added to the edges of the cookies to give them a vintage old timey feel.

Lawn Fawn September in Review

Hello friends!!
My blog posts from September never went live, so here is a quick review of my projects!!  All products can be found at Lawn Fawn!!

Happy Fall

Outside In Stitched Pumpkins plus Fall Fling kind of equals magic. This paper collection inspires me to make pretty things!

I used both of the new pumpkin dies from Lawn Fawn to create this dimensional pumpkin as well as the leaf dies that are included. To get the depth in the leaves, each leaf is adhered using foam adhesive. 

This might be my favorite card that I have made from this release. It flows nicely, and the colors are just so beautiful.

Here is another card using the pumpkin dies in a different way!

Fall Build a House

I am so excited to share this card today using the Build A House die from Lawn Fawn. I am sharing the house, how the house comes (minus a few extras) but there is also a Halloween add on die kit and Christmas add on die kit. 
This is a super versatile die, and it can pair with just about any Lawn Fawn stamp set!

I created a simple card, that would be perfect to send to someone who just bought a new house, moved, is adding to their family etc! Pair this die with the add ons and you can go next level with Halloween and Christmas cards. If you like to build scenes this would be great to have as a staple!
Head on over to the Lawn Fawn blog, to see how all of the designers used this die in fun and different ways!

Thankful For You

Hello Friends!
I hope you all have had a wonderful summer so far! Today I am sharing a fun new die from Lawn Fawn called Flippin Awesome. It is the easiest interactive die that I have ever used! Some of those dies, make you feel like you need to me a mathematician who went back to school to be a magician. They are hard lol.
Anyhow, this new die, paired with the Fall Fling pattern paper, has me wishing for Pumpkin Spice Lattes, and I don't even really like fall! (not a fan of things dying lol) I live in Florida, I can't help it for loving perpetual summer weather, its not my fault hahaha. 

But back to this die, and these papers. They are absolute magic together. The Fall Fling paper might be my favorite new product of this fall/winter release. Its that amazing. 

I hope you all are following along with the August Inspiration Week on the Lawn Fawn Blog. I might be biased, but the designers are sooo good! Make sure you leave a comment on the LF blog if you want a chance to win the giveaways!

Happy Halloween

The Fall and Winter release for Lawn Fawn is here! Brand spanking new, never been seen before...stamps, dies, paper, ink, new tools...so much goodness!!
Go follow along this week over on the Lawn Fawn Blog.
Today I am sharing a card using a new stamp set called Spooky Village. It has fun houses, and elements to make a halloween scene. I think my favorite part of this set are the bold sentiments.
I applied ink to the white woodgrain cardstock, then stamped the houses in black ink and colored them in with copic markers. The sentiment was made with clear ink and white embossing powder, and heat set onto black cardstock.

Spirit of Christmas

Hello friends! 
How is it the end of July already? Is it just me or has this year sped by at a rapid rate? In one month I drop my youngest off at his University and I'm not sure how I feel about it yet. To ease my mommas soul, I have been creating a lot the last few weeks. Thank goodness for craft supplies!! Which bring me to todays project.

Did you know Technique Tuesday is having a sale on their Christmas and Winter holiday themes stamps and dies? 25% off!! Shop the Christmas Sale collection here!

Tags are my jam. They make me insanely happy to make. Partly because I can add beautiful ribbons on them, that I cannot put onto a card or scrapbook page.

The stamps that I used on this tag are from the Spirit of December, I love that there are so many sentiments and images to create a Christmas or winter scene. The dies are from the Postage Card Crafting & Jam Jar Labels crafting sets, but they are also in a Holiday bundle called Documenting December. This bundle is perfect for anyone who does a December Daily album.

Thank You

Hello friends!
I hope you all are enjoying your summer so far! My youngest child graduated High School and we had family out from California and Nevada. Also, my husband and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary, this past month as well. We had eloped in Charleston, SC so is was only fitting that we went back to celebrate with our family. Lately I have been a little lazy, but after the last 6 months, it has taken a toll on my mental health, so a few lazy days are in order. The stress of my husbands surgery, my son graduating, my daughter moving out...it has been a lot.  I am glad that our family is on the other side of it, and we are welcoming new chapters for all of us.

Now on to my card! Technique Tuesday is releasing a new floral stamp set called Hello Hollyhocks, its a smaller stamp set, but you can do so much with it! I stamped the image twice in black ink, colored in the flower with copic markers, and then cut one of the flowers out. The sentiment and Butterflies were also stamped in black ink, and colored in with copic markers as well. With the extra flower, I cut the flower apart to adhere with foam adhesive over the flower. The panel was then adhered with foam adhesive to a white card base.

This card is going to go in the mail. My son has about 50 thank you cards to write out this week!  I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Cupcake Birthdays

Have you been following along with the Lawn Fawn June Inspiration Week? The Fawnies, are making incredible projects, everyday someone has made my jaw drop from their cleverness. Today I have a card using the new Stitched Cupcake die set. I wanted something bright and bold, but that was clean looking. 
I diecut the different pieces in pinks, aquas and oranges so I would have a selection of colors that I could mix with each other. Some of the pieces needed to be glued together, so while the glue was drying, I stamped the "happy birthday" sentiment in black ink. I adhered all of the diecut pieces to the above the sentiment using foam adhesive. Except for the hearts, those were glued on. To finish, I doubled up twine, and tied a loose fun bow.

Happy Summer

Hello there!
I hope the sun is shining in your neck of the woods! It has been thunder storming here off an on for over a week and I am ready for a full day of sun!
This didn't come out as exactly how I saw it in my brain. But I still really like it, and had fun creating it, so thats all that matters.
I used the Sunray, Double stitched rectangles, and Happy Summer line border die, from Lawn Fawn to create this card. To give the card added dimension I watercolored the background in a gradient way, having the darker coloring at the top, and lighter water blended card at the bottom. 

Head on over to the Lawn Fawn blog to see more projects using the new Line Borders. 

Beach House Add On

There is a die from Lawn Fawn called the Scalloped Treat Box.  What is cool about this box, is that you can use it alone, or with the add on die sets, there is a collection of them. This is the 5th add on set to the Scalloped Treat Box and its called Beach House.  The sky is the limit when decorating these  treat boxes, and since I live in Florida, I might have squealed when I first saw this beach house add on set. 
I kept everything simple from colors to what I adhered, because I could have gone crazy! There are so many cool ways to style this box, I'm excited to play more with it!

I Sea It's Your Birthday

Sometimes when I get a mini set, I try and make a large card just using it. Its fantastic that Lawn Fawn stamps can coordinate and elevate each other, but thinking about the new customer, I wonder maybe this is their first set. How can I used just this stamp set?

Here are two cards using this mini set called Seahorsin' Around, without using another stamp set.  The above card is new, and was stamped, then colored in with copic markers, and the card below was stamped and then colored in with watercolors. 

Head on over to the Lawn Fawn Blog, to see how the designers used the two mini stamp sets being shown today!

Happy Birthday

Hello friends! Its the Lawn Fawn June Inspiration Week and the designers are showcasing the other half of the summer release. Today I am sharing a clean designed card, that will only take one stamp to mail.
The card is a 4.25 x 5.5 inch card base. Its a 4.25 x 11 inch strip of cardstock scored at 5.5 inches. This seems like a very simple concept, but I am adding in those measurement because a lot of new stampers like exact measurements for replication. 
Once the card base was created, the sentiments from Birthday Before & After stamp set, were stamped in black ink onto the center of the card front. The images from the same stamp set, were stamped in black ink, then colored in using an assortment of copic markers. The images were fussy cut with scissors and then adhered to the cardfront using foam adhesive. If this isn't going in the mail, I would have added ribbon or twine to embellish!

Head on over to the Lawn Fawn blog to see some INCREDIBLE cards using this set, my mind was blown!

Blooming Hello

Hello friends!
Today Technique Tuesday is having a fun blog hop showcasing the June release.  I used the Blooming Branches stamp set, stamped it several times onto watercolor paper using a light tan/yellow ink. Then watercolored the images using Daniel Smith watercolor pigments. The "hello" sentiment was stamped in black ink onto watercolor paper and then adhered to the panel using foam adhesive. 

Here is the complete blog list of all the designers showing off new stamps and dies

Extra Bonus Day!

Surprise! There is a bonus day for the Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week. Today is the very last day, yesterday was the release and we just had to share a few more projects.
This cake slice die, is so freaking adorable. And I have to say, would make such great packaging for party favors and gifts.

The die set comes with everything to complete the cake slice. Top, bottom, embellishments and details. Its a great stand alone die for sure!

There is also another die set called Just Stitching Double Rectangles. This creates a double stitched rectangle on the project of choice.

Thanks So Much

Are you following along with the Summer release from Lawn Fawn? Do you have a favorite so far? I am loving all the stamp/dies that are beach related!
Today my card is using a brand new die called Tropical Backdrop.  I know a lot of cardmakers, do not like to color. So this project is a great example of how you can achieve a fun and colorful background by just using pattern paper. 
I have seen some of the projects that the other designers have created and they are incredible! Head on over to the Lawn Fawn blog to check them out!

Smooth Sailing

After living in Florida for over 10 years, and my husband being in the Navy, its easy to say I love all things nautical. This Smooth Sailing stamp set from Lawn Fawn has anchors, sailboats, lighthouses, and wonderful sentiments. 
There is something really eye catching when you use pink/orange/yellow together. It kind of reminds me of a sunset. That is the inspiration from this card, is the cotton candy sunset you see when visiting the coast of California.
The sailboat and anchors were stamped in black ink, and then colored in using Copic markers. The banners and the images were all adhered to the card with foam adhesive for added dimension.

I am using the Sending Roses stamp set from Technique Tuesday for my card today.

The rose was stamped in black ink and then colored in using copic markers. The sentiment is in black in as well. Strips of pink and red cardstock were adhered to the white card base to tie in with the rose coloring. To give the card depth and dimension and rose and sentiment were adhered using foam adhesive.
