I’m *wicked* excited to share with you that I have been chosen to be on the Lawnscaping’s Design Team!! I love the adorableness of the Lawn Fawn sets, and the quality of their clear stamps is top notch!! I was excited enough to be teaching with them, but now to add on top of that to be playing along with the super talented lawnscaping team is AWESOME! I hope I will inspire you to play along with their challenges as well. Check out the announcement post over on the blog, and be sure to welcome the other “new girls” too! We don’t “officially” start until July, but I thought I would share a couple Lawn Fawn cards with you anyways-
and this next card I switched up a bit for the shoebox card swap I participated in at Ink About It a few weekends ago
Note: The copics linked below are for Sketch style, I use the Original Style in my studio, but wanted to link the colors used
I participated in the Hero Arts Scramble this weekend over on the Flickr group. My friend Cheiron was hosting, and my friend Glenda and I met up in a google+ hangout to stamp together. We were given the challenge to create a card for OURSELVES using all of our favorite items. A card just for lil ol me!? ok!!! Teal, teal, and a lil more teal… kraft…. a lil bling, letters and fonts are a love of mine. I love office supplies, hence the grid and punched border I used. AND the best of all “Saturday” my favorite day of the week!!! (see below for a full listing of the supplies I used)
Thank you for hosting Cheiron!
Hey everyone! I’m super excited to let you know I will now be offering classes with Lawn Fawn stamps!!! These fun, whimsical sets are sure to inspire you- and I can’t wait to design a TON of wicked fun cards with them (and share with you of course!)
My first classes with these stamps will be on the Cape, May 16th 6:30-8:30p and at Ink About It Thursday June 21st 6:30-8:30p (more details here) Hope to see you at one of these offerings!
I love the patterned clouds in the Hero Arts/ Studio Calico Set – Hooray . I have made so many cards with that one set alone, and I’m not done yet! I also have been loving the Envelope pattern background stamp, that a few friends talked me into getting. I made the “rain drops” with my quickie glue pen and ultra fine crystal glitter – so fun! And for this design it only seemed fitting that I used gray for the sentiment so i grabbed my Versafine in Smokey Gray.
In honor of tomorrow being friday, I thought I would post this card!
I played with some creative girls in a google+ hangout last friday, and created this card. I had been all over MA and NH so was a bit tired, aka lazy- and only wanted to use what was within arms reach. Paper and embellishments scraps worked well here! After I saw my friend Cheiron’s card with the “weekdays” Hero Arts set, I was like “great i’ll never top that” – but i’m happy with what i ended up with.
I have had good intentions of trying out some of Hero Art’s Challenges for awhile now, but it just hasn’t happened.. this month though i have done a few cards!!
Here is the first one I designed for the Sunshine and Showers challenge
On this card I used
I decided to try my first moxie fab challenge … and boy, is it a doozie! I’m all for a challenge, and this certainly didn’t hold anything back. The boldness, the color combos are all out of my comfort zone… but you know what? That is what is best about trying challenges, they open up your creative brain to new ideas!
I was immediately inspired by the bold wall paper, and happy to see a splash of teal (of course) and last but not least i loved the striking clean black and white pattern. Hope you enjoy the card I created!
