Love Love Love

 Hello again! I'm back again to share a card that is being featured on the Lawn Fawn blog this morning!

I wanted to make something colorful and cute for Valentine's Day! This card features Lawn Fawn's large and small "Stitched Square Stackables" dies, "Scripty Love" die, and a few Lawn Fawn inks - Mermaid, Wild Rose, and Sunflower

I started by die cutting the love three times from white card stock. I then used the Lawn Fawn inks to color the die cuts, starting at the bottom and making it a little bit lighter at the top. I attached the die cuts to the card base with glue.

I also used the square dies to create a border and attached it with foam tape. I finished the card by stamping a few hearts around the sentiment in the coordinating inks. Here is a close up on the card:

Lawnscaping #123 - Sending Love

Good morning! I hope that you had a great weekend! We were able to spend some time outside yesterday because it was about 55 degrees! That's a heat wave for central PA in January! The rest of this week is suppose to be fairly nice as well! I feel like we're getting spoiled with this nice weather!

Anyways, it's the first Monday in February, which means it's time for a new Lawnscaping Challenge!

This challenge is to use hearts or love sentiments on your projects, so this is the card that I created:

I haven't used that airplane set in such a long time! This card features Lawn Fawn's "Bon Voyage" and "Riley's ABCs" stamp set, "Heart," "Scripty Love" and "Puffy Cloud Borders" dies. I also used Wild Rose ink and patterned paper from the Beachside petite paper pack.

Here is a close up on the card:

I hope that you're able to play along with the challenge this week! The winner will receive a $25 gift certificate from Ellen Hutson!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day! :)

Sending Love (and Flowers) with Sunny Studio Stamps

Good morning! I hope that your week is going well! I have a card to share with you this morning that is on the Sunny Studio Stamps blog! :)

This card features one of their new sets, Sweet Script, which is perfect to help create custom sentiments! 

I paired the new script set with the Backyard Bugs stamp set and die for this card, I used a variety of patterned papers for the flowers, stems, flower pots, and background. Here is a close up on the flowers:

I also wanted to make you aware of the Lasting Hearts Card Drive that is collecting cards until February 29th. You can find more information about it on Jennifer McGuire's blog. This card drive is very dear to my heart because my husband and I lost our first child due to a miscarriage about 4 years ago. It was an extremely difficult time that God was able to bring us through, and so I know how meaningful these books and cards will be to those women who receive them. I encourage you all to donate cards to this great cause!


Thanks again for stopping by and I hope that you have a great weekend! :)

Cheesy Pizza Card

Hi everyone! Did anyone get impacted by the snow storm this weekend? We live in central PA, so it wasn't too bad for us, but we still got a few inches. Nearby towns received about 2 feet of snow, and I know that even further south received a lot more! My daughter (she's two) had a blast playing in the snow over the weekend!

Anyways, I have a card to share with you that is being featured on the Lawn Fawn blog this morning!

This card features Lawn Fawn's "Pizza My Heart" stamp and die, "A Birdie Told Me" stamp and die, Wildrose ink, and yellow Lawn Trimmings. This pizza set cracks me up! After I made this card, I realized I should have made the sentiment say, "This may sound cheesy, but you have a pizza my heart!" Next time!

The images are colored with Prismacolor pencils. My favorite part of this stamp set is the smiley faces for the pizza! And if the piece of pizza is smiling, then it has to have a speech bubble!

Thanks for stopping by today, and thank you, Kelly Marie, for sharing this card on the LF Blog this morning!! :)

Cute Butterfly Card

Hi everyone! I'm here to share a card with you that features one of Sunny Studio Stamps newest sets - Backyard Bugs!

I really like how this card turned out! I started by stamping the butterfly onto patterned paper and then using the coordinating die to cut out two butterflies from each paper. I attached the first butterfly to the card base, and attached the second butterfly in the middle so that I could fold the wings up a little bit. Here is a close up on the butterflies:

The sentiment is from the Backyard Bugs set and the banner is from the Sunny Borders set. That banner is great to help highlight sentiments!

Well, thanks for stopping by today! Have a great day! :)

Lawnscaping #122 - Watercoloring

 Good morning! I hope that everyone had a nice weekend! We finally put away the Christmas decorations and put the house back in order. It's nice to have things back in place, but it always makes me sad to put away the decorations. Until next year! :)

It's time again for another Lawnscaping Challenge! The theme this week is watercoloring!

Watercoloring looks so pretty, but I'm really not that good at it, so this is the best that I could manage! I used a smoosh technique to create this multi-colored background.

This card features Lawn Fawn's "Bugs and Kisses" stamp and die, and Stitched Square Stackable dies. I started by making the watercolored background and once it was dry, I used the square dies to cut it out. I also used two of the square dies together to make the white frame around the images. The images are all colored with Prismacolor pencils and attached with foam tape. Here is a close up on the card:

 Please ignore the "g" in bug. I must have moved the stamp block while I was stamping the sentiment. Opps!

You have until Wednesday, January 27th to play along and the winner will receive a free stamp set from Lawn Fawn! I can't wait to see what you create!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day! :)
