Toot Your Own Horn | ft. Lawn Fawn Stamps and Dies


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

Today I have card and video showing you how to get more out of your dies. For this card I'm using the Lawn Fawn "Shadow Box Theatre Add-On" die. This is made to go with the Shadow Box card die, but I'm going to be using it to set my stage (hehehe) for this encouragement/congratulations card.

I love sets that can be used in more than one way, it makes me feel like I'm really getting all that I can out of my die.

I recommend watching in HD over on YouTube!!

While I'm not typically one for paper piecing, I just couldn't even resist this set. How many awesome scenes can you make with this set? Lawn Fawn is AH-MAZ-ING for making sets that all work together!


Check out the video to see how this card came together and my thoughts on a new liquid adhesive!

I hope you like today's card (and video) 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.

Hello Little Monkey | ft. Hello Bluebird "Jungle Littles" and "Spring Script"


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

Today I'm going to share a card that I created for my friend who just had a new baby! He's about the cutest darned thing I've ever seen, let me tell ya.

When I saw these little critters from Hello Bluebird stamps, I about died. Mostly for the sloth because that's my favourite animal, but the rest of them are just as sweet. They went with a monkey jungle theme for the nursery so this one worked out perfectly.


To begin, I stamped the monkey and the vine with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on 110lb Copic-friendly cardstock. There was a bit of masking involved, as I wanted him to be swinging by his tail, to fill in any lines that were missing, I used a fine-tip Copic-safe black pen to draw them in.

I then coloured the images with Copic markers. For the greeting, I prepped the lower part of my panel with my powder tool, then stamped the large "Hello" from the "Spring Script" set with Peeled Paint Distress Oxide Ink (using the MISTI, just in case) then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Not only does this help the Oxide ink dry faster, but it gives just a bit of dimension and some shine. I stamped the "There" with VersaMark ink on black cardstock and heat embossed with white powder and trimmed it down.

I mounted my panel to a piece of patterned paper then adhered the whole lot to the front of a top folding standard A2 sized card base. To finish off the card, I used some clear Wink of Stella on the leaves and the banana and then coated them with Glossy Accents by Ranger, because while he may not appreciate the shine, I know his Mom did.

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.

This die set makes creating a reveal card so incredibly easy. There really isn't a whole lot more work to take your card to the next level.
