Lawn Fawn "Hap-Pea" Belated Birthday


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

A little while ago, I showed you the Lawn Fawn Spring 2019 Release Haul video, and in it I mentioned that I had already made a card for my Aunt's birthday using the "Be Hap-Pea" stamp set. I chose this set because she enjoys gardening and when I saw it I immediately thought of her.



I stamped all the images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on 110lb Copic-friendly cardstock, I masked all the images off and sponged Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink around the images. Once that was dry I removed the masks and coloured all the images with Copic-markers.

I used the "Hap-pea" and "Birthday" from the "Be Hap-pea" set along with the "belated" from the "Hang in There" to create my greeting.

I used the second largest of the "Large Stitched Rectangles" dies to cut this panel and the largest of "Large Stitched Rectangles" to cut the patterned paper. I adhered them together then mounted them to the front of a standard A2 sized card base.

My Favorite Things "Bitty Bears" Wednesday Sketch Challenge


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

So remember back in June when my part-time job went full-time? One of the other part-time people got a full-time job so we've had to hire a replacement for her. So far, I gotta say she's pretty awesome. Anyway, because she also has a full-time job, her training has to happen after hours, so on Tuesdays and Thursdays I'm at work until 9:00pm, but it kinda works out because I get to start later so I have some extra crafty time during the week! YAY!!!

For today's card I'm working off the MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge; each week they provide you with an inspiration sketch and you use your stuff to make a card, then enter it in the challenge. If you click on over to the Recognition page, or have been following my blog for a while, you'll know that I used to participate in challenges all the time, like dozens a month. But since going full-time I haven't really done as many because there just doesn't seem to be any time left in my day. This morning, I put together this card and will be submitting it to the challenge.

Hopefully this productivity continues.


To begin, I used Mermaid Lagoon, Peacock Feathers and Cracked Pistachio Distress inks along with my Lori blending brushes to create an ombre background.

I set that aside to dry then stamped the greeting and three of these adorable little bears from MFT's "Bitty Bears" stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on 110lb Copic-friendly cardstock and coloured them with Copic Markers.

I then used a stitched square die to cut out the little guys and one of the banner dies from MFT's Die-namics Blueprint #27 to cut my banner.

Once the background panel was completely dry, I adhered it to the front of my standard A2 sized card base and used foam tape to pop up the squares. The banner was adhered with 1/4" Scor tape to lay flat.

To finish off the card, I added a bit of sparkle to their noses and used a black gel pen over the eyes of each bear to make them stand out.

Lawn Fawn "You Color My World" Reveal Wheel


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

Today I wanted to share a card I created using the "One in a Chameleon", "Blissful Botanicals" and "You Color my World" stamp sets along with the "Reveal Wheel" dies. This card can be used for the ladies and the gents, which is always a bonus as well as a just because or a cheer up kind of card.


All the images are stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on 110lb Copic-friendly cardstock and coloured with Copic markers.

I used the Reveal Wheel die set along with the Chameleon die to create my view window. It's handy that the wheel is big enough to accommodate dies from other sets even if they don't have the little puzzle piece to fit into the die.

I used Distress Inks and my Lori blending brushes to get a rainbow gradient for a smooth colour change when you turn the wheel. Once the wheel was dry, I assembled the mechanism and adhered it to a piece of patterned paper; then mounted it to the front of a standard A2 sized card base.

I stamped the chameleon on a piece of acetate with StazOn black ink. The background hanging vine plants were stamped with Shabby Shutters Distress Oxide ink.
