Happy Heart Day Series | ft. Lawn Fawn "Wheelie Like You"


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

I got this set almost as soon as it was release, I had so many plans for this little guy, then it arrived and nothing. This is actually the first time I have ever even inked it up. Sad, right? But it happens.

I also noticed that all my critters are little "guys". Not sure why, just a funny little thing I have.

Anyway, you may have noticed that my posts are a bit more sporadic than usual. Well, I have a new job! For the first time since my youngest was born (five and a half years ago) I'm working. Once the training is over, it's every other weekend some stat days and then every now and then if someone else's shift needs to be covered, but I'm working! I knew I missed work, but honestly I had no idea how MUCH I missed it until I started last week.


To begin, I stamped the little hamster from Lawn Fawn's "Wheelie Like You" set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on 110lb Copic-friendly cardstock. I then masked him off and stamped the wheel with the same ink.

I removed the mask and coloured the images in with Copic markers. I used one of my scalloped circle dies to cut out my little panel, then stamped the greeting on the top edge using the MISTI.

For the background, I adhered a piece of heart cardstock to the front of my standard A2 sized card base, then added a strip of red glitter paper across it. I popped up the scalloped circle panel with some foam tape and mounted that on top.

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 or over on Facebook, so you don't miss any future posts. Drop me a line in the comments section below and let me know what you think.
