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.

Just wanted to share with you my latest design team post for Scrapbooks By Design. I love that a lot of the holiday stamp sets from Lawn Fawn can be used throughout the year, and Baaah Humbug is just one example.
You can check out the project, and see all the supplies I used for this card over on the SBD blog – here is the card I made:

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

It’s been absolutely gorgeous in Vancouver this winter, temperatures hovering around 10 degrees since January while the rest of east coast has been getting tortured with insane amounts of snow and crazy cold temperatures!
That is what inspired me to make this card from Lawn Fawn, using their Hello Sunshine stamps & coordinating dies. I have been coloring with my Spectrum Noir markers and I have been really starting to get the hang of it. While I still have tons to learn, I was happy with the way these little tweety birds turned out so I knew I had to use them on a card right away!

Once I got started coloring with my new markers I had to try every color I had! This card is made I made with the Blended Bloom image I colored using the Blendabilities markers in the Calypso Coral. I have said it before, but I love how these markers come in sets of 3, taking the guess work out of finding the right colors to make a proper gradient blend. One of hte other really cool benefits of these alcohol markers is that you can color on jsut about anything and the color does not come off! For this project, I used regular clear rhinestones and colored them with the lightest pumpkin pie blendability marker giving them that nice gold tint.
The top background is stamped in Gold metallic ink using the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set – this is one of my go to stamp sets because it is so flexible and makes great backgrounds.

Of all the alcohol markers that Stampin Up has, Cherry Cobbler is my favorite color. It is such a rich yet vibrant color, almost regal like velvet 😉
I am hosting an Introduction to Alcohol Marker Coloring class this week, and here is the card the group will be making in the workshop. Each class participant will get a FREE pack of the Cherry Cobbler marker trio as part of their class fee too!
