Autumn is wrapping up & Old Man Winter is rapidly approaching – what better time to create this card using Prima’s Autumn Sunset collection.
I used the 6×6 paper pad, along with the chipboard & ephemera pack to create this card, along with Lawn Fawn’s stitched leaves dies that I inked with Distress Inks to create the accents. The tiny metal acorns I found at a local store and finally got to use them; attached with hemp twine.
I’m not a scrapbooker, or even a mixed media artist so I rarely buy 12×12 collections. But this Alice collection by Stamperia really hit it out of the park for me. I love that there are different panels ready to use on your project, but also within the full 12×12 images there are lots of images that can be cut too.
As soon as I saw this Alice collection I knew it would be perfect for a Double Z fold card layout. This is an A2 size card, but even with the larger 12×12 scale Stamperia’s collection really worked for this fold. I can’t wait to try more fancy folds with this collection & the paper I have remaining!
Photoplay Paper does it again with this super fun & whimsical Whisker paper collection!! I have a girlfriend who loves cats just as much as I do, so I knew I had to make her this card for her!!
I created a few super basic layers, then matted the trimmed sentiment panel with Tattered Lace torn edge rectangles dies. This card took literally less than 15 minutes, but it sure made her day when it arrived in the post. 🙂
Wow does time fly!! It’s been a while since I posted, but I have been keeping up on Facebook and Instagram!
A super quick and easy masculine card, this Photoplay “Man Card” paper collection was perfect! I used gold foil to mat my layers on top of a woodgrain stamped cardstock base. Gold metal dots finished off the card nicely and tied all the layers together.
I used the scraps to make the coordinating envelope – having a custom made coordinating envelope really adds that extra touch of personalization 🙂

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.

Did this project inspire you? I would love to see what you made too! Comment with your project – I love to share & see other crafty projects ❤
Simon Says Stamp monthly card kits are always fun, but as an avid crafter I find I already have a lot of the supplies in the kit, so I usually just order the kit items a la carte. Except October’s kit. I needed EVERYTHING in that kit!! From the Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid fall 6×6 paper, to the gorgeous audrey blue & burnt orange card stock, I needed it ALL!!
I ordered the kit and had a blast re-creating the projects that the design team had created from the inspiration sheet that is included with the kit.
This card however, I made on my own for my osteo path who has helped me tremendously! I am forever grateful to her and wanted to send her a thank you note to let her know.
This card uses the audrey blue card stock for my base color to punch it up a bit and add some color to off set all the brown. I inked up my die cut Lawn Fawn stitched leaves with distress inks to give them a bit of dimension and really help the stitching pop as well. For the stitching detail around the card I used a dark brown marker rather than black – it tied everything together nicely and kept it a CAS card as I was intending.
I loved how this card turned out, and the best part is it would be easy to mass produce if you needed a lot of thank you cards too.
Thanks for stopping by & checking out my project – your comments & feedback are always welcome & appreciated!

It’s always a happy day in my house when I get new orders, especially when it’s new LAWN FAWN! This recent release included some new colors to Lawn Fawn’s dye ink pad family – there are now 27 colors in the collection, with a few more expected to be added throughout this year. (YAY!)
I have created swatches of all of the colors, and have shown each of the new colors in a group with similar inks from previous releases so you can see how they coordinate together. In this new collection release, Lawn Fawn added:
Butter Dye Ink
A gorgeous pale yellow, this butter ink color really is going to be a go to for me! Use for creating shadows or even highlights, this ink can really showcase full stamped images like the veggies in the new Rooting For You stamp set, or something as classic as stamping little stars to create you own background.
This is a warm grey – meaning, a grey with brown tones. This would be great for stamping some critters, like the skunk from Into The Woods, or the Narwhal from Critters From The Arctic.
A lovely vibrant orange-yellow, this would be great for stamping just about anything! It reminds me of sunshine 🙂
Crisp, bright true green this would be great for foliage, trees and even sentiments.
Seriously, just about the BEST ‘pool’ or aqua ink color on the market! Bright true turquoise, this color is my new favorite aqua pool ink pad color.
Here are my swatches – the full collection, and then each of the new colors with their color families.

Happy Crafting Everyone!
I have been really in to the shabby chic, ‘prettier’ cards lately. As you know, generally my style is more on the cutesy side, but I have been making an effort to diversify my skills and I have been trying out papers and collections that I have really loved.
This Gilded Lily collection from Graphic 45 was no exception. I had the opportunity to create a gorgeous album with this collection at the CHA summer show in Chicago this past summer and I really loved how versatile the paper and chipboards are!
I needed to make a birthday card for a co-worker and I knew she would appreciate something pretty – so I pulled out my Graphic 45 and leafed through the stack and decided on the two papers from the collection.
Here is a list of supplies if you would like to make this card at home! Just comment below if you would like to have the measurements for this card & I will be happy to share that with you!
