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:
Lawn Fawn Baaah Humbug Hello Ewe design team post for Scrapbooks By Design created by Wendie Bee
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.
Here is my card:

The Spectrum Noir alcohol marker colors I used in the project are:
Deer / Moose:
Body – EB2, GB8, GB 10
Antlers – EB1
Tummy – FS1 & Blender pen
Scoop – PP1, PP@, CE2
Cone EB1, EB2
Mushroom: LV1, HB2
Leaf: LG1, LG2, CG4
Quick tip: I stamped the sentiment from Milk & Cookies in Stayzon black ink onto the vellum as the Memento will smear
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!

Here is one of my most recent project 7 accompanying video tutorial: a large Celebrate balloons card. It’s long and tall, but fits perfectly into a standard business size #10 envelope and can be sent in the mail for a regular postage stamp (no additional cost)!

How many times have you heard “that’s so stinkin cute”? Well, now there’s a stamp for that!! Lawn Fawn had released this exclusive stamp as a free gift with purchase for Black Friday, but I am sure it will be available in stores soon (they did the same thing with the ‘You Color My World’ stamp set a few years ago too)
This little mini set truly is ‘stinkin cute’! The card I created could be used for Valentine’s Day, or just for a general everyday just because card.

As soon as I saw the Calling All Hero’s photopolymer set by Stampin Up I knew i had to have it!! I had so many ideas on what to do with it – and i loved that it worked for both boys AND girls.
My friend Eric and his two best friends make an annual pilgrimage to the Fan Expo (Comic Con) in Toronto every year. It’s HUGE and there is SO much to see. So I thought it would be cool to make them a memento that would be as practical as it was cool. (At least I thought so anyway :P)
And the mini craft journals project began. I started planning weeks before and used scraps of computer paper to test layouts – I think I tried about 6 different designs before I came up with this one. I just love that this set is photopolymer!! Being completely transparent I was able to position the letters perfectly without having to use a position-er or make costly mistakes!
Here is the finished journals – I made one for each of them and personalized it with their names. I included pop rocks and candy with them in the package when I sent them too.

Here’s the best part – you can make these too!! It was easy once I knew the layout – just needed one stamp set and two basic ink colors!
Here is a list of what I used – and don’t forget you can shop online 2-4-7 by clicking on any of the links.
