Lawn Fawn and Blending Lawn Fawn Inks

Hey folks!

I'm back today to share a really fun card with you all!

I just can't get enough of these Ants! They are from the Happy Summer Stamp Set by Lawn Fawn. Instead of stamping the watermelon I thought I'd try somethin a lil different and make a watermelon. Also I thought why not make it a birthday card? F. U. N.

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

Again, those fabulous lil Ants are from the Happy Summer Set by Lawn Fawn. I've used them before, but I've had this idea floating around in my head and thought now was a good time to give it a go. Watermelons are all over Pinterest and Instagram lately and I thought I'd jump on the ol' bandwagon. Plus they're cute. Win, win. 


Using Black Licorice Ink by Lawn Fawn I stamped the Ants and the Happy Birthday Sentiment from the Hats Off To You Stamp Set by Lawn Fawn. The Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circle Die was perfect for this. Lawn Fawn also has Stitched Circle Dies that would work great, I just don't have them. Boo!

For the card panel, I masked off a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of Neenah White Cardstock with some Post-It Tape. With a Ranger Ink Blending Tool, I started with Freshly Cut Grass Ink by Lawn Fawn and moved my way up with Lawn Fawn Celery Stick Ink (new and OMG what a lovely shade of green) and Lawn Fawn Wild Rose Ink. Then, I used the Simon Says Stamp Curved Edge Die and trimmed off the bottom. I also used my Fiskars Paper Trimmer and trimmed off the top. In hindsight, I wish I hadn't trimmed off so much. Oh well, no biggie.

The stripes at the top are the Simon Says Stamp Diagonal Stripe Stencil that I turned to make them straight and blended Lawn Fawn Wild Rose Ink over the stencil with Ranger Ink Blending Tool. I cut a small strip and adhered it to the back of the panel.

For the Watermelon Seeds, I used the Raindrops Die that are in the Spring Showers Die Set by Lawn Fawn. I cut them out of Simon Says Stamp Black Cardstock. I'm really really (no really) happy with those!

For the first time EVER, I used Lawn Fawn Lawn Trimmings in Lime. I really enjoy the feel of this. It doesn't fray and it's easy to handle. I dig it and I highly recommend it. Outside of the cord, I added some Wink of Stella (shocker, I know) and that's it for embellishments.

I mounted the panel on a piece a Neenah White Cardstock base with a piece of Fun Foam. I cut the card base with the same Simon Says Stamp Curved Edge Die. I really wish I had used a green card base or kraft, but it's cool.

That's it! I hope you enjoy it as much I enjoyed making it!

Until next time!

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

Hey folks!

I'm back today to share a suer 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.

Using Dies On A One Layer Card + Altenew Majestic Blooms

Hey folks!

I'm back today to share another card with you all! I've done loads of Copic coloring lately and today's card is no different, but I wanted to try some new (to me) as well.

I think Altenew has some of the most amazing flowers on the market. Their design and versatility is ah-mazing. The Majestic Blooms Stamp set by Altenew is actually a multi-layer set, but I climb on the struggle bus every time I attempt this kind of stamping, so I decided to stick with what I'm comfy with and simply use the outline of the flower and color it in with Copic's.


Since, I'm going to color this in with Copic's and I don't want them to bleed through the inside of my card I stamped the flower and leaves on a piece of Neenah White Cardstock with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink. This …
