Happy Spring Skunk!

I wanted to do a little throw back to this lawn fawn stamp set that was super popular a few years ago…

I made this into another shaker window card and used chalk inks to get that soft grass and sky background. It is a bit hard to see from the photos but I stamped “Birthday” on some vellum paper.

For some finishing touches I added white enamel dots to the border. Skunks are good for spring right??? lol.

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.

Tag You’re It!

I have to say…Who knew that tags could be so adorable!

I made these tags using the patterned paper from Lawn Fawn Into the Woods, and the adorable critters from Mama Elephant Up and Away stamp set.

I have to admit, I caught the Project Life bug and have been slowing putting together my photo book! I thought putting these tags on 4×6 and 3×4 cards would be so cute…

These make me so happy! Have a great weekend =)

“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!
