Just Saying Hello

Tuesday, March 3, 2015

The last time I was shopping at Micheals I stopped in my tracks by this adorable Mermaid Kiddo rubber stamp image by Stampendous. I thought this would be perfect for so many things--including a greeting card. I also thought, with watercoloring being so popular right now, that this image would be perfect for that medium. This was my first time watercoloring a large image like this so I wasn't too sure how it would turn out but in the end I just loved it.

I colored in this image using only distress inks. For the ocean background I used Salty Ocean, Peacock feathers, Tumbled glass, and Chipped sapphire. That combination of blues turned out so well. I don't have any skin tone colors so I combined the colors Tattered rose, and Tea dye. Then I added Spun sugar for her cheeks. For her hair I used Scattered straw, Mustard seed, and a little bit of Tattered rose; and for her sea shells and fin I used Shabby Shutters and Bundled sage. Also, the shells she's wearing were colored in using Shaded lilac and the adorable little sea horse was colored in using both Mustard seed and Spiced Marmalade.

To finish off the card I used the 'Just saying Hello' sentiment from, Grand Greetings by Lawn Fawn on some vellum paper as well as Sparkling Clear, and Aquamarine sequins by Pretty Pink Posh.

I hope you all enjoyed this card. I had so much fun coloring it all in! Also, stay tuned for a new video by me on the Lawn Fawn blog tomorrow. If you head over to their blog you'll  noticed I have a card there for Scrapbook adhesives week and I'll be sharing how I made that card! I'll also share the video and images here on my blog, tomorrow.

Throwback Thursday--Crafty Edition

Thursday, February 26, 2015

I'm doing a crafty throw back and using this old school (well it's not really THAT old) Lawn Fawn stamp set, Grand Greetings. I created this A2 size card with a piece of watercolor cardstock and I used some dark blues, pinks, and purples for this abstract background. I also placed a piece of vellum over that watercolor piece and heat embossed the sentiment in white embossing powder. To fill the inside of this shaker card I used some Pretty Pink Posh sequins. Shaker cards are the best!

Fun Candy Box DIY

Wednesday, February 25, 2015

Sure, St. Patricks Day isn't until next month but I just can't keep my hands off of the new products for Lawn Fawn's latest release. I didn't get a chance to make a sample in time for release/inspiration week using this awesome new Candy Box Die, so I thought it would be fun to create something today using it. I'm using this die along with the adorable medium size stamp set, My Lucky Charm. Both of those products are already for sale and you can take a look at all of the new collection by clicking here. Not only did I use the new die and new stamp set--I also used one of the new colors from the Lawn Trimmings line, Tangerine; and, some of the new ink pads! Everything in this collection coordinates so well--these new products also coordinate with older LF products, too.

Products used to create these boxes:

Neenah Environmental cardstock

Lawn Fawn Stamp set, My Lucky Charm
Lawn Fawn die, My Lucky Charm
Lawn Trimmings in Tangerine

I hope you enjoyed this crafty project and have a great day!

You're the Coolest

Tuesday, February 24, 2015

Hi everyone! Today I wanted to share this card that I made yesterday using a two of the new Lawn Fawn Stamp sets, Flirty Frames and Best Pun Ever. Both of which are currently for sale now! I love that the Flirty Frames have such cute and whimsical designs and that they can be used all year round--the same goes for Best Pun Ever. That set comes with some adorable images and cute sentiments to match.

When creating the background for this card I used some Canson watercolor paper, and cut it down to a A2 size. Then I adhered it to my clip board using some low tack tape and used a few distress inks to achieve the abstract background. I also did some watercoloring with the frame and popsicle images and then to add some shine I covered them in some Glossy Accents. To finish off the card I used some of the new, Sweet heart lawn trimmings, and some Pretty Pink Posh, Sparkling Clear sequins.

I hope you enjoyed this card and thank you so much for stopping by!

Lawn Fawn February Inspiration Week--Eggstra Special Easter

Sunday, February 15, 2015

Welcome back to another day full of inspiration! I feel like it's been a while since I created party decor with a Lawn Fawn stamp set and for this new set, Eggstra Special Easter, I thought it would be perfect timing to jump back into it. This set is perfect for cards, party decor, and even creating cute scenes for scrapbook pages.

I used to new Grassy Cupcake wrapper die to create both pieces of the wrapper set. I cut one in green cardstock and another in cream. Then I took the tulip image from the new stamp set Eggstra Special Easter and stamped that along the bottom but leaving enough room at the top so that the green grass could peek though. I also used a variety if pink colored copic markers to color the flower in, and finished it off with some Vintage Photo distress ink around the edges for a vintagy look. Next I stamped out some bunny images and die cut those using the coordinating dies and glued them to food picks to make the toppers. After that I thought I'd stick to the vintage theme and I made a banner using cream cardstock BUT I also used a sheet of pattern paper from the new Mon Amie paper collection to help bring everything together. I have to say I really love the way this turned out. I think I might make more of these for our Easter celebration or show how I made everything in a video!

For more information on today's intro to this stamp set, head over to the Lawn Fawn blog (click here) were Kelly Marie is sharing an awesome intro video with detailed look into this set and what you can do with it. You can also view all of the other DT creations and also leave a comment for a chance to win this set! I hope you've loved everything so far and we can't wait to share more!

Happy Valentine's Day

Saturday, February 14, 2015

Just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Valentine's Day! I've been so busy lately with orders but last night I managed to head over to the local drugstore and pick up some candy and stickers so I could make these last minute goodie bags for my loved ones. I used the goodie bag die by Lawn Fawn (click here to view it) and some light pink cardstock. I didn't have any time to do some stamping so while I was at the store I picked up a pack of stickers to place onto the boxes. Everyone I'm giving these to is an animal lover so I thought these animal stickers were perfect!

Have a great day!

Lawn Fawn February Inspiration Week--Party Balloons

Saturday, February 14, 2015

I used the new (and awesome) Party Balloon dies along with some other great new stamps sets like, Baked with Love, script sayings, and my lucky charm to create this simple card. Not only did I used new stamps sets but I also used the new, Beach Side 6x6 paper pad. I wanted to create a masculine card so I used some of the dark tones in the paper pad. If you notice, the sentiment is stamped in navy blue--I used the new Lawn Fawn ink, Deep Sea, for that! I just love everything about this new collection. What is your favorite so far?

To view all of the other DT cards head over to the Lawn Fawn blog by clicking here and watch another intro video by Kelly Marie, herself! Not only is Party Balloons on the blog today but also the new Candy box die, and the Stitched Label dies that coordinate! You can also get a chance to win a cool prize! I hope you have a great weekend!
