Lawn Fawn: Year Four & Hello Sunshine

When I saw Lawn Fawn’s new releases from CHA this year I knew I just had to have all of them!! Especially the Hello Sunshine collection.  I love that the Year Four stamp set also has coordinating dies!

 

I stamped the images on white card stock (except the hippo which was stamped on Stampin Up Smoky Slate), colored all the images with colored pencils using the blending technique I showcased in this past post .  I just LOVE the bright happy colors of the Hello Sunshine paper collection – I had a hard time choosing which one to use on this card to compliment the critters!!!

Love this card but don’t have the time to make one yourself?  This is now available for purchase in my Etsy store

As always stampers – your comments are welcome and appreciated!

I love Lawn Fawn!!!

I love Lawn Fawn!!!  These are my creations from the new “Home Sweet Home” stamp set.  I really love that there is a matching die for so many of the stamp images too!!  And, the dies are unique in that there is a little bit of white space around image when die cut to look like they were fussy cut too.

This Home Sweet Home set is SOOOO versatile! I really love the assortment of ‘decorations’ in the set, it really allows you to create a unique, personalized project.  Check out Kelly’s intro video showing all the stamps, coordinating dies & different examples she shows.

Here is what I made with this great set so far:

This card was pretty much a direct case from Kelly’s card from the intro video; here is what I used:

  • Stampin Up Pool Party ink (to sponge background color)
  • Colored pencils using blending technique here
  • Lawn Fawn Home Sweet Home Stamp & Die set

There are two more cards-in-progress on my work table right now too.  I also have stamped a bunch of leaves, branches and many different houses – that way I can just go crazy designing cards.  It’s much easier once all the elements are all done to design cards layouts – I just place all the bits & pieces on with tweezers, then move tham around until I get a layout I love.  **Fun** !!!!

I have ordered the Summertime Charms stamp & die set as well.  I cannot WAIT to get it!!

Until next time stampers!

Critter Coloring: Kittehs

So I have been on a crazy coloring binge since I have discovered the blending technique using colored pencils & baby oil from my post here

I fell in love with the critter stamps from Penny Black – the hedgehog, kitties, mice and critters are just about the cutest things EVER and are versatile enough to use for any age & occasion card!
I have found that Simon Says Stamp is the best place to get them online (other than Ebay) – great prices and even BETTER shipping!  Being Canadian I really appreciate when sellers can offer reasonable rates. 

Ok – enough of the hype, here is my latest creation. 

 

ImageI used only colored pencils & baby oil to color it.  I love that it looks like a cross between watercolor pencils & Copic (or alcohol markers).  Best of both worlds I think!  My boyfriend (yep, he’s *that* awesome) came up with the idea to fussy cut the balloons them pop them up with pop dots. 

The inside has a white matte to cover the ribbon, and I used the “Celebrate” sling mount from the Outlined Occasions set from Stampin Up’s 2011 Sale-A-Bration.
