STAMPtember just got a whole lot CHEESIER!

IMG_4800

Hello friends! As I’m sure you all know, Simon Says Stamp is currently hosting STAMPtember all month long on their site. They not only have awesome sales and specials, but they also have exclusive releases.

Lawn Fawn teamed up with Simon to create one of the cutest Christmas sets I’ve ever seen! The set is called Merry Christmouse and filled with fun, cuteness, and lots of cheese. 🙂

For this card, I used the Merry Christmouse set to heat emboss a background using Hero Arts Silver Embossing Powder. I also silver heat embossed my cute mouse scene on a piece of Tim Holtz Watercolor Cardstock with the same embossing powder.

Do you love the scalloped borders? Those are one of Lawn Fawn‘s newest stand-alone die sets called Scalloped Rectangles. It is a huge set that comes with TONS of sizes… a definite MUST HAVE.

The gold piece is a foiled cardstock from DCWV that i cut with one of Lawn Fawn‘s Stitched Rectangles. I just love how a super cheesy set like this can be called elegant as well.

Make sure you get you hands on this set, because it will sell out!!

Fawny Holiday Week Day 4 Ombre Tree Line Card

I hope everyone caught my video yesterday! Today, I have one EXTREMELY simple – but probably my favorite – card featured on the Lawn Fawn Blog4

For this card I used the Let It Snow Stamp Set from Lawn Fawn and every green color of Simon Says Stamp Inks they’ve made so far! I’m just obsessed with the Simon inks. Not only do they come out beautiful on paper, but have you seen the puppy paws on the front packaging!?

Anyway, I drew a sloped pencil line and stamped the trees from dark to light starting on the left. Once the trees were stamped, I brought in some Wendi Vecchi Embossing Paste and swiped it along the pencil line I drew to make a snow bank on the front. When the paste was completely dry, I used the second largest rectangle from the Large Stitched Rectangles Lawn Cuts to cut out the front panel. I stamped the greeting in Simon Says Stamp Schoolhouse Red Ink and added some clear cupped sequins to the tress. I added two panels of green cardstock to bring in more color and my card was finished.

I hope you’re enjoying all the Fawny’s beautiful cards!

IT. IS. HERE….

unnamed

My first Lawn Fawn video has magically appeared this holiday season, and I really hope you love it! I’m not even going to describe it… just watch! Be amazed! Enjoy!

What did you think?!

My second card featured on the Lawn Fawn Blog today is a simple Hanukkah card. I first used some Tim Holtz Distress Inks in various shades of blue to make the ombre background. I cut it with the largest die from the Small Stitched Rectangles Lawn Cuts and used the Happy Hanukkah Stamp Set to heat emboss the menorah and sentiment in Ranger Liquid Platinum Embossing Powder. I took a Neenah 110# Solar White card base and stamped the Star of David in Simon Says Stamp Soft Navy Ink around the edges. I popped up the rectangle card front with some 3M Foam Adhesive and that was that! Beautiful!

I really hope you’re enjoying the holiday inspiration, and let me know what you think of my first video!

Fawny Holiday Week Shaker Card and Watercolored Ornaments Card

Today is Day 2 of Lawn Fawn’s Fawny Holiday Week, and today I have 2 awesome cards being featured! 1

First up is this super simple shaker card! I used the tree from Lawn Fawn’s Trim the Tree Lawn Cuts as my shaker image. I put in an assortment of Lawn Fawn sequins, and dipped the star and Scripty Joy Lawn Cut onto my Golden Glitz Delicata Ink Pad and then covered them both in two layers of Ranger Super Fine Clear Embossing Powder.  I just love how simple, elegant, and fun it tuned out!

I’m sure you all know how much I love watercoloring. For this card, I heat embossed various ornament images from Lawn Fawn‘s Ornate Ornaments Stamp Set with some Ranger Liquid Platinum Embossing Powder on some Tim Holtz Watercolor Cardstock. I then used a medium watercolor brush, dipped it in Crushed Olive, Pumice Stone, Broken China, or Picked Raspberry Distress Inks, dunked the inked brush in water, then held it high above my project so it dripped and made a watery splash! To finish this card, I heat embossed the sentiment in the same embossing powder, used the Large Stitched Rectangles Lawn Cuts to cut out the panel, adhered it to a Neenah Desert Storm card base, and lastly tied some of Lawn Fawn‘s Gold Sparkle Lawn Trimmings into a bow at the top. I really like how the ornaments look like they’re hanging from the Lawn Trimmings.

COPIC Markers for Card Makers: Card inspired by Debby Hughes

IMG_2348

If you have been following my Instagram, you are aware that I am completely obsessed with the COPIC Markers for Card Makers class from Online Card Classes. Today was the first day I really got to spend some time making a whole card, and I’m so excited to have tried something completely new, but right up my alley at the same time.

Debby Hughes was a guest today, and I was so inspired by her watercolor/mixed-media-like styled cards.

IMG_2347

For my card, I used one of the classes practice images that is actually from Lawn Fawn‘s Critters in the Burbs Stamp Set. I colored it using the technique Debby showed (I highly recommending signing up for the class – if you haven’t already – to access this technique video as well as MANY others), then I cut it out using some precision scissors, and fixed my edges with a black felt tip marker.

I used a piece of Neenah Solar White 110# Cardstock, the Tim Holtz THS024 Chevron Layering Stencil, and some Wendy Vecchi White Embossing Paste to make an imperfect strip of texture coming from the top left of my card. After allowing it to dry completely, I cut a 1” Strip of Studio Calico {Hex} Vellum, ripped the long end to my desired size, and adhered it with a little but of Studio Multi Medium Matte. I NEEDED to use this sentiment from the Feathered Friends STAMPtember collaboration of Lawn Fawn And Simon Says Stamp! It says “friends forever,” but with ‘selective-inking’ I made it say “friends furever.” I grabbed a strand of light green thread and crumbled it up – I added some foam squares to the back of my puppy image and adhered it down over the thread to hold it in place. Lastly, I embellished my card with some Lawn Fawn sequins from some past collections.

I really LOVE how this card turned out, and I would encourage everyone to try something new whenever they need some inspiration!

Let’s Get Creepy with Perfect Paper Crafting

Attachment-1 (1)

Today I have this adorable card for you using the Perfect Paper CraftingPerfect Tears” tool and some of Lawn Fawn’s newest products.

IMG_2291

I started out with some Strathmore Watercolor Paper. I stamped my images from the Monster Mash Stamp Set and the Spooktacular Stamp Set, as well as my adorable sentiment using the Violet’s ABCs Stamp Set. Then I die cut the tree from the Sweater Weather Lawn Cuts and used the Perfect Tears “Course Deckle Edge” to create a gooey border. I did use a small pair of precision scissors to clean up the edges from the tear just a bit.

IMG_2293

The next part is always my favorite…. WATERCOLORING. For this card, I used some of my Distress Ink Minis. For the background I used Pumice Stone, Stormy Sky, and Dusty Concord – for the ooey gooey border I used Crushed Olive, Forest Moss, and Peeled Paint – and for the tree I used Frayed Burlap, Gathered Twigs, and Walnut Stain. I let all of those dry completely before painting the monsters.

For the monsters – I used Spiced Marmalade and Mustard Seed, then I added some Pumice Stone and a tiny bit of Black Soot under the fury monster and tree to give them some ground to stand on. Once everything was dried I used my Tombow Stamp Runner to add adhesive to all of the pieces and adhere them in place. Lastly, I made my card base out of some purple cardstock and ran my Wink of Stella Glitter Brush along the two long sides to give it some shine.
