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!!
I also have exciting news. I’m really trying to educate myself on creating quality tutorial videos!

I’m so happy to finally be settled in to my new home and ready to make some awesome posts to share with all of you!
Today I have a super simple card that is colorful and clean, yet has some great dimension. I used a BRAND NEW set from Lawn Fawn called “Beep Boop Birthday“… it is my favorite set from the new release. I love the cute robot images and the small gear images are really cool for creating personalized pattern papers that can give a complex look to any card that will make people really say “wow” even though it takes not much time and not much effort at all.
To create this card I started with a standard sized Neenah Solar White card front. I then stamped the adorable square balloon stamp in multiple Simon Says Stamp Inks (individually listed down bellow in my supply list). I used some Memento Tuxedo Black Ink to stamp one of the robots and drew in the balloon strings with a 0.3 Copic Multiliner to make it look like the robot was holding the balloons. I used various Cool Gray Copic Sketch Markers to color the robot to give him a little dimension.
Now for the fun sentiment! I used Lawn Fawn’s Cole’s ABCs Lawn Cuts and die cut the word “birthday” from both the card front and a piece of kids adhesive fun foam that you could find at any local craft store. I used the memento ink again to stamp “beep boop” above the die cut area on the card front, trimmed the edges just a bit, attached the card front to a standard A2 Neenah Desert Storm card base, and pieced the foam letters into place. I did not need to use any extra adhesive because the foam sitting inset to the one layer of cardstock holds it like a perfect puzzle piece! The foam comes with a pretty strong adhesive, but if I was using it just as an accent on top of a card and not pieced in, I would probably squeeze some Glossy Accents behind to secure it through the mail.
Lastly, on the inside, I stamped “happy birthday” along with those perfect gear stamps that I talked about earlier.
I love the way this card came out! The inset foam gives the perfect amount of dimension… more than an embossing powder, folder, or paste, but not so much that it weighs down the card! I will probably be using a lot of this foam in cards to come!
Thanks for reading and have a great day!

You are probably thinking I am crazy again because it is obviously NOT Tuesday, but I just could not wait until next week to share this adorable card. I made this card using a few stamps that are extremely versatile.
This amazingly colorful tree is from Lawn Fawn’s Critters in the Forest Stamp Set. To see how I got such beautiful COPIC blending with these unconventional combinations CHECK OUT MY VIDEO!
I inked up my Hero Arts Five Line Background Stamp with some Hero Arts Soft Granite Shadow Ink. I then took a dry baby wipe and dabbed away some of the ink to create a heart shape that I stamped onto some Neenah Solar White Cardstock.
I figured out where I wanted my technicolored tree to sit on my card and stamped some tiny leaves from the same Lawn Fawn Critters in the Forest Stamp Set and colored them with various COPIC markers to make some extremely colorful fallen leaves.
I then stamped a sentiment from the Paper Smooches I Heart Art Stamp Set with some Simon Says Stamp Lipstick Red Ink and used my Wink of Stella Glitter Pens to make the word “color” actually COLORFUL.
Lastly, I attached my technicolored tree with some 3M Foam Adhesive, then mounted my entire cardfront onto some Simon Says Stamp Lipstick Red Cardstock with the corners cut with my Photo Corner/Angle Cut Corner Chomper.
This makes one FABULOUS Valentine’s Card for any significant other, friend, or family member. I hope you try out some new blending techniques, and as always feel free to comment with any questions!
