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!!!
Lawn Fawn Year Four by Wendie Bee of Stamp Right Up
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:

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** !!!!
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.
I 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.
