Lawn Fawn Welcome Baby - Pay It Forward #2

Hey folks!

Today I'm sharing my second Pay It Forward card. My daughter and I delivered these (you can see the first one here) to their respective hospitals on Tuesday. I have to say peeps, this really was a fulfilling experience!

We have no idea what the reception from each of the patients were, but it's cool. The nurses we gave them to said they knew exactly who to give them to, so it was poifect! 

As usual, if you're interested in any of the products I have used I will have links at the bottom of the post! 

I'm seriously thinking I must make it my personal goal in life to own every Lawn Fawn Critter. Some people have Bucket Lists like going to Paris or visiting the Grand Canyon. Even eating an entire cheesecake in one sitting. Not me! I simply want Lawn Fawn Critters. I don't actually know anyone that has the Grand Canyon on their Bucket List, but you get the point.

I have agreed to a "spending freeze" with some of my peeps on the Stamping Enablers Facebook Page for the month of June, but Lawn Fawn is going to have oodles of new stuff launching next month! Stamps (more critters!), dies and inks? Yes please! You can check out the sneaks here. Yes, I'm aware the "spending freeze" and "enabler" do not belong in the same sentence...For those of you who have not agreed to such madness, I encourage you to go check it out and enjoy the launch!

These fabulous elements are from the Critters Down Under Stamp Set. Dar-ling. After I stamped them on Neenah White Cardstock with Momento Tuxedo Black Ink, I colored them in with Copic's. This is part of the fun for me. They are adorable in their own right, but I just LOVE to color them! It's like coloring for "adults"! 

I kept the rest of the card pretty simple. I used the smallest Lawn Fawn Stitched Scallop Border Die in the set on a piece of Neenah White Cardstock and mounted that on a card base of Simon Says Stamp Audrey Blue Cardstock as well as some Bazzill Dotted Swiss Cardstock in Butter. I also took my Wink of Stella Pen and colored around the edges of the Stitched Scallop Panel. This tied in to the Kangaroo's ears. Done! Easy Peasy.

The plan was not to write in these cards. We had two thoughts on this: A) this kept them truly anonymous and B) it tied into the Pay It Forward gig and this way, if they wanted, they could use these cards to Pay It Forward to someone else. So, I made notes for each of the cards and put them inside of the envelopes. I use clear envelopes and the recipient has to turn the card to the back to open it and when they do, this note is what they'll see.

My daughter needed proof these were delivered and the nurse in the Maternity Wing was all over this, but she didn't want her picture taken, so this was what we came up with. We took flowers in with both cards too! I didn't get permission from the nurse at the other hospital to post her pic on the internet so this is all I get to show you. Which is too bad because she was so stinkin cute!

Well that's it peeps! This was great and we shall do it again. 

Until next time!

Making An Easy One Layered Card - Featuring Avery Elle and Copic Coloring

Hey folks!

I'm back today to share a super easy and super fast one layered card with you all!

It's no secret that I love to mask and build up the images on a card. However, sometimes it's great to skip the masking and get the same effect. That's what I've done on my card today folks.

I'm a sucker for butterflies and if you make them rainbow and I will clap my hands like a demented seal. For real. So today I used the Butterflies Stamp Set by Avery Elle and did some basic Copic Coloring (color choices in thumbnail links below) in a rainbow color scheme.

On Neenah White Cardstock, I stamped my images in Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink with my MISTI Stamping Tool. You don't need a MISTI, but I'm a manic and it's almost impossible for me to line up my stamps again with a…

The stamp set I used today is Ah-mazing! It's the Hello Lovely Stamp Set by Concord & 9th and I'm tellin ya folks, if you're looking for something that has a whole lotta wow factor AND is easy, this is your stamp set.

Using my MISTI Stamping Tool, I stamped my Neenah White Cardstock Panel with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink.

There are some really groovy stamps in the set if you wanted to just ink them up and stamp them within the outline image, but I LOVED the idea of coloring this bad boy in.

As usual, I start…
