Reverse Confetti and Simon Says Stamp STAMPTEMBER exclusive!



Hello there! Today I have a card to share with you using the Reverse Confetti and Simon Says Stamp STAMPTEMBER exclusive stamp set, Forest Friends!  This stamp set is only available in the Simon Says Stamp store, and only while supplies last!

I challenged myself to make a one layer card, and boy, do I miss my foam tape!  I am so used to creating with lots of layers, but simple masking and coloring was fun too!  I added a few accessories to the forest critters, including the party hat and balloons from another Reverse Confetti stamp set, Monkey Business.  I stamped everything in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and colored the images with my Copic Markers, then added a few accents with a white gel pen.

That's all for me today!  I'll be back on Monday with a card for the Reverse Confetti September SFYTT!  There is still time to play along!

Thanks for stopping by!! :)

Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week - Small Stitched Envelope and Dotted Stackables


Hello there!  Today, we are wrapping up this month's Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week!  Today, we are showcasing the new Small Stitched Envelope die and the Dotted Stackables dies!  I have been using the Dotted Stackables of most of my projects this week, so you can see them in action if you scroll through this week's post.  Today, I have a little project using the Small Stitched Envelope die. 

This die is adorable, and there are probably a bunch of things that will fit inside.  It is perfect for a gift card!  Apart from that, I opened the door of my pantry last week, and spied a box of tea bags sitting on the shelf.  To my delight, a tea bag fits inside this envelope!  How cute would it be to package up a teabag, and pair it with a pretty mug as a little pick-me-up gift for someone who is not feeling well?  Or as little place settings for a Mommy-and-Me tea party?

I diecut a piece of Perfectly Plaid Christmas paper (which you can use for SO much more than Christmas, by the way!), and made a cute little tag using the Tiny Tags dies, cut from a piece of Peacock cardstock.  Then I stamped, colored and diecut the little tea cup, tea bag tag, and rising steam from the Love You a Latte stamp set.  I tied it on with a piece of Green Sparkle Lawn Trimmings, in a pretty bow.

Hello there!  Welcome to another day of Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week!  Today we are showcasing the Cheery Christmas stamp set and coordinating dies!

To create my card today, I started off by diecutting the Leafy Tree Backdrop Portrait from white cardstock.  Then I diecut some kraft cardstock with the largest die from the Small Dotted Rectangles Stackables.  This size rectangles nestles perfectly inside the opening of the Leafy Tree Backdrops diecut,  I ran the kraft cardstock through my diecut machine again using the Snowy Backdrop die, and then diecut a hill using the Simple Stitched Hillside borders dies.  I stamped the tree from Cheery Christmas in Freshly Cut Grass ink, and the squirrels, acorn and star in black ink, and then colored those with Copic Markers.  I adhered the tree flat to the card snowy backdrop, and popped the other pieces up with foam tape,  To finish off my card, I added some white gel pen accents, and stamped a sentiment from Merry Messages on a hand cut banner using Black Licorice ink.

Hello there!  Welcome to another day of Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week!  Today, we are showcasing the new Perfectly Plaid Christmas paper collection!!  These beautiful plaid papers are perfect to use with all of your favorite holiday stamp sets!  I pulled out one of my most favorite (and very first) Lawn Fawn stamp sets, Making Frosty Friends, to make my card today!

I started off by diecutting a piece of the 6x6 Perfectly Plaid Christmas papers with the largest die from the Large Dotted Rectangles Stackables dies.  I added a snowy hill with the Simple Stitched Hillside Borders, cut from white card stock.  Then, I stamped, colored and diecut a bunch of pieces from the Making Frosty Friends stamp set.  I paper pieced the scarf and hat using more papers from the Perfectly Plaid Christmas collection, and diecut some snowflakes using the Stitched Snowflakes dies.  Then I stamped a sentiment from the same stamp set on a hand cut banner, and popped it up with some foam tape.  I added a few white gel pen accents to finish things off.

Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week - Narwhal and Friends and String of Lights

Hello there!  Welcome to day 4 of Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week!!  Today, we are showcasing some super fun stand alone dies!  As soon as I saw the String of Lights dies, I knew immediately that they would be a favorite!  They are so whimsical and fun!

I wanted the lights to be in the spotlight on my card, so I used neutral colors for the background.  I started out my card by diecutting a piece of the Perfectly Plaid Winter paper with the largest die from the Large Dotted Rectangles dies, and adhering that to a white card base.  I trimmed a piece of white cardstock, and diecut the smallest size light from the String of Lights dies five times from white cardstock.  There are three sizes of lights in the set, each size has two pieces that make up the bulb - the solid light, and the light with the shine mark diecut out of it.  I colored the lights with copic markers, and backed each light with a white diecut bulb so that the shine mark would really show on the brightly colored bulbs,  I diecut the string and light sockets from Narwhal cardstock.  I set up the lights how I wanted them on the white cardstock, then made tiny pencil markers at the tip of each bulb.  I used Distress inks and an ink blending tool to add faint color halos to make the lights look like they are glowing.  Then I glued the light string down with a glue pen, and popped up each light with foam tape.  I added a sentiment from the Winter Gifts stamp set, and added some Icicle Stickles to each bulb for some glitter and shine.  I used the Stitched Scalloped Borders dies to cut a scalloped edge for each side of the panel from Narwhal cardstock, and then popped the panel up on the plaid card base.

Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week - Snow Cool

Hello there!  It's day 3 of Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week, and we are showcasing the Snow Cool stamp set and coordinating dies!!

To create my card, I started off by diecutting a piece of white cardstock using the largest die from the Small Dotted Rectangles Stackables.  I stamped the falling snow from Snow Cool in Manatee ink.  I added a strip of Perfectly Plaid Christmas to the bottom of the panel.  I stamped, colored and diecut the two penguins from Snow Cool, and then stamped the tree from Critters in the Forest on some more Perfectly Plaid Christmas paper.  I glued the tree with a glue pen, and popped the penguins up with foam tape.  I decorated the tree with some silver pearls.  For my sentiment, I diecut the Scripty Be and Scripty Merry dies out of Chili Pepper cardstock, four times each.  I glued one on top of the other to make a dimensional sentiment without having to use foam tape.  I added a few stars from  the Snow Day stamp set in Lobster ink, and popped the panel up on a red card base,

Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week - Sprinkled with Joy

Hello there!!  It's day 2 of Lawn Fawn inspiration week, and today we are showcasing the Sprinkled with Joy stamp set and coordinating dies, along with the Sprinkled with Joy add-on die set!

I started off my card by watercoloring a piece of watercolor paper with Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink.  I painted a watercolor wash, then added some splatters of more concentrated color.  When it was dry, I diecut it with the Large Dotted Rectangles dies, and added a strip of Perfectly Plaid Christmas paper to the bottom of the panel.  I stamped and colored a few bits and pieces from the Sprinkled With Joy stamp set, and the reindeer from the Party Animal stamp set, and fussy cut everything (it would have been much faster to diecut everything with the coordinating dies, but I find fussy cutting very relaxing, and sometimes, I just feel like breaking out those scissors!  I adhered everything to the panel, some things with a glue pen, and others with foam tape.  Then, I stamped a sentiment from the same stamp set.  I added the panel to a white card base, and added some white gel pen accents, and a bow with Peppermint Lawn Trimmings.
