Lawn Fawn Hippo Birdie To You and Copic

Hey there!

I'm back to share another quick card with you all!

If you've read my blog at all you will know that I'm a huge fan of Lawn Fawn. Especially their Critters! I'm talking, jump up and down and clap my hands like a demented seal kind of fan. My husband "claims" it's embarrassing, but I don't know what he's talking about. Embarrassing is wearing camouflage pants to the grocery store, but that's a story for another time.

Anyway, I've had the Lawn Fawn Hippo Birdie To You (Year 4) Stamp Set for awhile and I've probably stamped it a half dozen times, but I just couldn't get a plan. So, I decided keeping it simple was the way to go. 

If you're interested in any of the products I've used, I will have links for you at the end of the post!

To figure out where I wanted to stamp my images, I first die cut a piece of Neenah White Cardstock with 2 of the Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Dies. I also used the largest of the 2 dies and die cut a piece of Simon Says Stamp Doll Pink Cardstock. The Diagonal Stripes came later and I'll talk about that in a minute.

I stamped my images on the center die cut with Momento Tuxedo Black Ink because I knew I wanted to color these lil cuties with Copic's. This card is going to a little girl so I chose girly colors, but one of the great things about this stamp set is you could totally choose different colors and make it masculine or even gender neutral. 

Lately, I've been pretty stingy in the embellishment department and that wasn't any different this time. I added a little bit of Clear Wink of Stella and some Ranger Glossy Accents to the Party Hats and the Balloon and called it good. 

Ok, about the SSS Doll Pink Border...When I assembled the card initially, I had left the border plain. I was pretty sure I didn't like it, but had no idea what I wanted. So this morning at about 2 a.m., I woke up (Am I the only one who does this?) and couldn't quit thinking about it. So I got up, went to The Mom Cave and started brainstorming. I use the term brainstorming loosely because at two o'clock in the morning I'm only capable of so much. Anyway, I started digging through a pile o' fun that was sitting on my table and came across my Simon Says Stamp Diagonal Stripe Stencil. I know I've used this quite a bit lately, but I thought it was perfect. The problem was my card was already put together. The plan I came up with was, cut down a piece of scrap paper to cover up the center of the card and use a Ranger Ink Mini Blending Tool and some Simon Says Stamp Doll Pink Ink. It worked! Pretty stinkin smart if I do say so myself. Honestly the trickiest part was keeping the stencil in one spot while I applied the ink, because I didn't use any adhesive to keep it in one place. It's all good though, mission accomplished. 

Oh and the SSS Doll Pink Border nd the Center Die Cut are mounted on to the card with Fun Foam and Scotch Mounting Tape so they would stand up off the Card Base. 

So that's it peeps. I hope you enjoy!

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.
