Lawn Fawn card

Sorry about that last post. It's really hard to write posts on my phone and I haven't had much of a chance to get on my computer lately. I went away last weekend to a crop for the whole weekend! So I have lots of stuff to share in the near future.

First, I made this card for the latest Lawn Fawn lawnscaping challenge

The challenge this week was to use your favorites. I'm loving these echo park papers and especially the cork adhesive backed paper from DCWV that I used for the log.

Great Impressions Guest Designer

I am so excited to be guest designing for Great Impressions this month!

I made two cards with these adorable stamps! I definitely could have kept going because I had so much fun! For this first card, I used watercolor pencils to color the image. For the sand, I masked the penguin feet and then blended a couple colors of ink to create variation. Next I used a mask and a slightly darker ink to add the dots, which I then embossed with opalescent clear embossing powder to create a little bit of glimmer, which doesn't show up very well in this photo. Additionally, I added glossy accents to the inner tube, sunglasses and bow, which also doesn't show up well in this photo.

Faber Castell watercolor pencils
Clearsnap inks and embossing powders
Ranger Glossy accents
Crafter's Workshop stencil
SRM stickers sentiment
Studio G brad

For this card, I wanted to make the image stand out from the rest of the card, so I fussy cut it. I colored this one with watercolor pencils and alcohol ink markers. The double frame really sets off the image.

joy's life back to school project

Today I have a Joy's Life Back to school project to share with you! I thought this would be fun to put in a lunch box filled with treats or fruit snacks or whatever. I used several stamps because I thought my daughter would get a kick out of the puns.

I used four sayings from the Punny Animals stamp set. 

The papers and Washi tape are from Doodlebug. The brads are Eyelet Outlet. The ink is clearsnap. I started with an explosion box that some perfume came in. I recovered it in blue cardstock then added the details.
