A New Baby to Love | ft. Lawn Fawn "Rub-a-Dub-Dub"


Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you're having a great day.

Today, I have a sweet baby card, created with the "Rub-a-Dub-Dub" stamp set by Lawn Fawn. This card came together with my little dish of bits from the dish on my desk. I tend to cut and colour more than I need so they end up in the dish. Every now and then the dish gets a little too full (or so I like to think) so I create mainly with what is in there, until it is down to a more respectable level.

They have to fulfill their paper destinies, after all.


To begin, I used the stamped images from Rub-a-Dub-Dub set and put them together in a little scene. The bubbles had been stamped on vellum, to attach them to the tub, I used just a small piece of scotch tape on the back, ensuring that it didn't come over the edge of the tub. It wouldn't do to have the tape showing.

All of the images had been coloured previously with Copic markers. As such, they were stamped with Memento Tuxedo black ink on 110lb Copic-friendly cardstock.

For the background, I used a couple scraps of patterned paper - this is another thing I can't seem to be able to get rid of. Even the tiniest of scraps end up back in the package.

I adhered the tub flat to the front of the card and popped the mama duck and the banner up with some foam tape.

To finish off the card, I added some iridescent bubbles from Studio Katia, just to give it some extra shimmer.

I hope you like today's card and are inspired to create something of your own. If you haven't already, please follow me on the right side bar, over on Facebook and on YouTube! Drop me a line in the comments section below and let me know what you think.

Embossed Vellum Overlay for Mother's Day | ft. Lawn Fawn "Flutter By"


Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you're having a great day.

Today I have a card (and video!) featuring a gold embossed vellum overlay on top of a brightly watercoloured background. This is pretty much how I imagined it in my head when it came to me.



I recommend watching in HD over on YouTube!

There are a few things I would do differently if I were to redo this card; chances are I will make another of these, it was just fun to play around with the watercolours.


I think with a different colour palette, this technique could be used for pretty much any type of card. I'm looking forward to trying this in more earthy tones for a masculine card.

Floral Thoughts Thank You Shaker


Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you're having a great day.

Today I have a super fun shaker using a new die, let me tell y'all: I had my doubts about this die. I haven't had the best luck with dies from Recollections, but this one impressed me. It's definitely the most intricate die that I have and it worked pretty well.

If I had to remake this card, I think I would do something to make the text in the middle stand out a bit more, but live and learn, right? Don't get me wrong, I still like it, but just one of those things that I would do differently. Hindsight and all that.
