Lawn Fawnatics Guest Designer: Summertime Fun!

I am over the moon to be the first guest designer on the Lawn Fawnatics challenge blog, hosted by Lawn Fawn!  The current challenge theme is “Summertime Fun”; and what says summer more than a bright warm sun and sandy beaches?!  This flamingo was perfect to set my scene, and the palm trees from Critters From the Past stamp set were perfect accents for my sandy beach.

LawnFawnatics Inaugural  Challenge: Happy Birthday

Everyone who knows me, knows my absolute favorite stamp company is, and has been for many many years: Lawn Fawn.  When I saw that Lawn Fawn had created a new challenge blog, called Lawn Fawnatics, I knew I had to play along! Their first challenge theme is: Birthday.  Since it coincided with their 7 year birthday it was a perfect match.

Here is my card I made – all supplies I used can be found at the end of post.

Share Handmade Kindness Week 2: Scented Cupcake Earrings & Elizabeth Craft Vinyl Peel Off Glitter Stickers Card

Last week I participated in the Share Handmade Kindness challenge hosted by Jennifer McGuire Ink.  The first week was to create something handmade for a friend or family member.  This week is the second week for the challenge, this week we are to share a handmade project with someone who works in the community.  I just recently discovered these ‘peel-off’ stickers from Elizabeth Crafts.  I knew that they would work perfectly with the Mama Elephant sentiment from Carnival Cupcake Toppers for a card to go with the scented cupcake earrings I made for my doctor that worked with me for 4 years through my recovery of a car accident.  I just recently moved away and never got a chance to give her something, so I knew that my little cupcake earrings would be perfect pairing with this card!

I will be doing a video on how to create the card soon so stay up to date by subscribing to my YouTube channel

Share Handmade Kindness Challenge #1 ~ Lawn Fawn Making Frosty Friends No Bulk Shaker Card

Hi Everyone,

I normally don’t get into many challenges, but this one had me at kindness…  Jennifer McGuire is hosting a ‘Share Handmade Kindness‘ challenge.  For the whole month of November there will be challenges to share the art of creating with someone – each week will be different.  This first week, will be share something with a friend or family member.  Jennifer wanted to do something to share kindness, and has teamed up with Hero Arts creating two exclusive stamps for a charity with a cause I really believe in: anti-bullying. What I love even more is that a significant portion (25%) of the proceeds will be going to the charity!

You can get both the photopolymer set on the left, and the single wood mount stamp from Simon Says Stamp or Hero Arts. I got mine today 💕

My card was made for my friend Carmen, who is gentle, kind, understanding and always patient with me even on my worst days.  She is a great friend and I really wanted to let her know that with this card ❤

Carmen lives in a different province than I do, so I wanted to make a card that I knew would survive mailing.  My new We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool just arrived the night before I made this.  I ordered it explicitly for the use of making no-bulk shaker cards and confetti pockets , so I couldn’t wait to try it out!

To make the window, I die cut the rectangle using Lawn Fawn’s large stitched rectangle dies.  Then, using an Avery Elle stamp storage pocket, I fastened the die to the pocket with washi tape, and ran the fuse tool over three of the four sides along the inside of the die – using it as a guide.  Leaving the top open, I filled it with iridescent confetti large glitter and added a few snowflake sequins,then fused the final top side of the inner part of the die.  (You can see an example of how this is done in one of Jennifer’s YouTube videos.)

The snowmen buddies were stamped in memento tuxedo black and die cut with the coordinating dies. Using my Spectrum Noir markers, the scarf was colored using DR1, DR6, DR7; the earmuffs were LV3 & LV2 with a light touch of the colorless blender to blend a little more.  OR1 & OR2 were used on the carrot noses, and IB1 was run along the outline of the snowmen to make them look icy cold 🙂

Because the stamp pocket is plastic / acetate, I knew only Stayzon white would work – I stamped the sentiment, then realized that it needed a little something more, so added a few stamped snowflakes for added interest.

So that I had somehwere to write a note, I added a 4 x5.25″ top folding note card inside.  The white sentiment got kind of lost when I did that, so I blended some Broken China distress ink fading to white along the top of the inner note card to highlight the sentiment when the card was closed.

This is entry for the #sharehandmadekindness initative.  I love Jennifer’s videos, she is a beautiful artist, and an even lovelier person.  This challenge is something that really means a lot to me, and I hope you will join me, Jennifer and thousands of other crafters & artists in turning our love of creating into the kindness of giving!

Lawn Fawn Baked With Love Lawnscaping Challenge

I have been a fan of Lawn Fawn for many, many years but I have never had the confidence to enter a challenge with my work.
So I figured now was as good as time as any to get started! After all, practice makes perfect right?

The Lawnscaping challenge is “dimension”:  I chose Baked With Love as my primary set for my card. It took me quite a few tries to get it just as I envisioned in my head.

The scripty hugs was die cut from glitter fun foam, which I have been using a lot of lately 😛  See end of post for full list of supplies used.

I appreciate and welcome comments – thanks for stopping by!
