I love this fun color combination for this spooky time of year! I used distress inks to get that lovely green/yellow layers.

This stamp set from Lawn Fawn is just too cute! Nothing scary here just lots of “boo!”

Wish me luck on the Lawnscaping Halloween Challenge!

Foxy Hexagons!

I was trying to figure out what to do with all of my little scraps of patterned paper…

And Taaaa daaaaa! At last, I was able to use my wood grain paper to make the cute little polaroid frame! Note to self: This sheet of wood grain paper is very pricey so practice on scraps to avoid any mistakes!  Also, I added clear card stock to the polaroid to give it a little something something.

For a little “flair,” I added an epoxy sticker to my fox! To do this, I cut my own hexagon shape from the epoxy sticker.  Here’s a closer look:

Kinda neat right?! For the final touches, I placed little hearts and sequins on the hexagons. Totally a great use for my scraps and hexagon die cut! Love it.

Hello Lovely!

I almost died when I saw this cute post over at Lea’s Cupcakes’ blog that I had to make my own:

I created the saying “Hello Lovely” because I overheard someone say it the other day and it was so sweet!

I added foam dots to the grassy polkadot hill to give the card some fun layers.

Ack! So cute! Also, I made my own “Hello” flair using some epoxy stickers and a Martha Stewart punch:

I found that this combination was a bit more cost effective instead of buying the entire epoxy sticker kit.  I also found a seller on etsy that sold epoxy stickers in sets of 50 or 100:

The only difference is the etsy epoxy stickers are more flexible or softer vs. the epiphany epoxy stickers are harder and do not bend.  I think both are great options and glad I have a variety of them!

Into Christmas!

I made my first Christmas card using my favorite new stamp set from Lawn Fawn called Into the Woods…or in this case it should be “Into Christmas!”

Originally, I wanted to make the circle part a shaker but it was too bulky for the card to open smoothly. So instead, I covered half the circle with the patterned paper and clear card stock, and stamped some snowflakes on the window to make it look like it was snowing.

I used four different pieces of patterned paper to cover the card (which was really fun!) Then for the final finishing touches, I gave the cute little deer a Santa hat and red nose!

At the last minute, I decided to decorate the back of the card to cover up the brads, and as silly as it sounds, I also covered the deer so that it would match with the love joy peace patterned paper!

Adorable.

“I put my thing down, flip it and reverse it!”

(From Missy Elliot – Work it!) Well that’s what I did with my deer stamp!

I have been trying to figure out how to do reverse image stamping.  After watching several youtube videos and experimenting a dozen times, I ended up with the above image! (I used the back of a clear stamp) Not too bad right? I am contemplating about purchasing this stamp:

Any thoughts on this stamp? Does the image come out nice and crisp?

I am off to make more cute Lawn Fawn cards! I am obsessed with the Lawn Fawn card boxes I just came across…more to come!

Falling into the woods!

Happy First Day of Fall!

I was totally inspired by an interactive card at Lawn Fawn that I had to make my own version using the adorable new Lawn Fawn Into the Woods stamp set.

Kinda cute to have a squirrel chasing the acorn around right? In order for the little acorn and squirrel to move around the circle they were attached using flat white buttons (instead of a penny).

I love how cute the stamps, flares, and paper are together! Happy fall!

Christmas Just Around the Corner!

It’s never too early to start on Christmas cards right?

I have officially retired all of my ribbon and am wondering if anyone wants a nice neat box of it!

To Stitch or Not to Stitch?

So for this card, I decided not to use any stitching and just have the happy birthday sentiment frame the card. However…

Upon further review, I felt like the card was “naked” so I had to add stitching to the sides!

Ahhh! Much better! Is anyone else obsessed with white stitching?

Bun in the Oven!

Love is in the details right?

I wanted to make this card simple but add a lot of details to show just how much love went into it.

First, I cut out the oven window and added clear cardstock to make it look like glass.  Then, I stamped two little white hearts on the oven window.  Next, I used distressed ink to get that lovely light pink color and sprayed the entire oven with shimmer frost spray.  Finally, I stamped the image on another piece of white cardstock and added stickles to the top of the cupcake and glossy accents to the cupcake wrapper.  Also, a little bling for the oven knobs!

Of course, I had to make a baby boy version:

Cute cute and cute!
