Lawn Fawn Favorites | Valentines Pop Up Box Card


I finally found a method that works for me for no line water coloring! Now I'm obsessed!
Let me preface with I'm not very good at coloring, at all, not with any medium. I'm shaky by nature, not sure why, too much caffeine probably, but I decided to bust out my prismacolor pencils and gamsol. For some reason I've never tried the two {WHY?} it really does make all the difference using colored pencils. 

Anyway.... The current challenge over at Lawn Fawnatics is to use you favorite Lawn Fawn, which is very hard because I love them all so much, but these happy bugs just have my heart.

I decided to do a pop up card box to let the bugs fly around. If you don't know how to make one, there are many templates and tutorials online. I used the template seen in this video for my box.

After assembling the main box, I decorated with some valentines cardstock (discontinued Authentique) and added some grass with the Lawn Fawn Grassy Border die. Then I went on stamping and coloring all the bugs from the Bugs & Kisses stamp set, and cut them out with the coordinating dies. I adhered them either directly to the box or with strips of transparency paper. I stamped part of my sentiment onto a heart shape cut from cricut with Versa Mark and heat embossed. For my main sentiment I used my new Brother P-Touch Embellish. I saw this at Michaels and had to have it (and didn't even know it had ribbon too!) You can get them on Amazon, but if you shop Michaels get it there with your coupon, it's a bit pricy for a label maker, but has a ton more features. To attach my printed ribbon sentiment, I used my Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher.

I can't wait to send this one out, box cards are so fun!

One last Christmas Card | Hero Arts & Alcohol Ink


Hi Everyone and Merry Christmas! I have one last Christmas card to share with you. 

This was a pretty simple card to put together, using mostly scraps!
I had previously punch out a bunch of snowflake confetti for my holiday decoration and had tons of negative's left from the Hero Arts Snowflake Confetti die, so I used that to start.

I have also been doing tons of experimenting with alcohol inks and had many panels with different designs, so I trimmed a piece of one and did a little die cut inlay for the sentiment. 

I mounted everything onto a bright teal cardstock, to compliment the teal in the alcohol ink, added a few gems, and viola! 

All supplies are links below, and again Merry Christmas!

Versatile Holiday Card | Alcohol Ink Background


Hi Everyone and Happy Hanukkah to my jewish friends! I was learning/playing with alcohol inks and had quite a few backgrounds I needed to put to work. This one I created by just smushing an felt ink blender loaded with alcohol inks across the paper. I thought it would be the perfect backdrop for snowfall so I used some Avery Elle snowflake dies to cut out some beautiful intricate and glittery flakes. I randomly arranged them on the background and trimmed around the edges.

Now I needed a sentiment, and I wanted a more versatile holiday option so I just used the Concord and 9th sophisticated script set to create my own Happy Holidays sentiment, which I framed out using a rectangle die.

To finish I added some teal/turquoise accents with nuvo drops & ranger perfect pearls, and used a white gel pen to draw some faux stitched around the edge. Mounted it on an a2 base and bam :)
