I finally got a chance to try out my new Lawn Fawn ink pad haul!! I learned how to stamp using only Stampin Up inks, so I wasn’t sure how well I would do with them. They worked GREAT!! I cannot get over how beautifully the colors layered over each other!! I just love Lawn Fawn ink pads & they are great for both beginner and advanced stampers a like. If you are completely new to stamping, check out the introduction video on Lawn Fawn`s You Tube channel showing you how these ink pads work, and what to expect.
For my card, I used Spectrum Noir markers to color the fox which was stamped in Memento tuxedo black ink. I stamped the red balloon first, then layered the rest over each other randomly – I love how it turned out! Using a white gel pen I added the little shine marks to the balloons for some extra pop.
The spectrum noir marker colors I used for this was: OR 1 – 3 for the fox, FS9 for the belly & ear accent shading, IG1 for the shadow effect under the fox.
The sentiment from Starry Backdrops stamp set was perfect for this card too – but there was quite a few that I thought would have worked just as well

As soon as I saw Lawn Fawn’s puffy cloud die, I knew it would be perfect to pair with the Critters Ever After set. The stand alone clouds from Spring Showers die set filled out the card perfectly too.
I cut a piece of 100lb white card stock to 4bar notecard (3.5 x5), then a piece of tide pool from the Pint-sized Patterns: Beachside paper petite (6×6) collection.
The unicorn, from the Critters Ever After set was colored with Spectrum Noir markers: LY1 – CT1, CR2 – PP2, IB1 – OB2. To add a little bit of sparkle, I used the silve wink of stella glitter pen – after all, it isn’t a unicorn without a little bit of sparkle right?!
Here is the card – I hope you like it! As always, your comments are welcome and appreciated:

So I use a lot of straws. I drink from a tumbler with a lid (like from starbucks): it stays cold longer, and if I spill in my craft room, it does not ruin… well, everthing 😛
Today I went to go get a straw, and had, as usual, a struggle with the dang box. I either can’t get any straws out, or a whole pile of them come flying out when I tap the box to loosen one out
So, the save myself the peril of throwing straws all over for the floor for the last time, I turned to my handy circle punch and grabbed my favorite roll of washi tape. All I did was punch a hole in the lid of the box, then sealed it shut with my washi tape. And BAM – easy peasy DIY streaw dispenser.
Crazy crafter wins the straw battle.

I have finally moved, unpacked and organized (sort of) my craft area. YAY! So I set about to use one of my new Lawn Fawn stamps ~ Party Animals!
Using the Butternut 4bar note card, I used the stitched rectangle dies, along with the puffy clouds, and stitched hillsides to make the scene for my little deer (moose?) critter. He looked a little lonely, so I thought a tiny mushroom from the Gleeful Gardens stamp set would work great, along with a leaf from Critters From The Past. The sentiment was from Milk & Cookies; I thought it was perfect for this layout.
