I stole this idea from my son. He designed this layout for a birthday card he made a few days ago. It took every good parenting instinct I have to let him finish his own project and not take over.



Size:  Vertical top fold A2 card

Extra Details: I started by stamping the images and sentiment on a panel of water color paper. I die cute the panel with a stitched rectangle die. I offset the image for a bit of interest.

I used Distress Inks to water color the images. Once the water color was dry, I popped the panel up on fun foam and added it to a card base.

Challenges Entered: Lawnscaping #141 C.A.S.

Stamps Used: Lawn Fawn’s Starry Backdrop

Lawn Fawn and Simon Says Stamp’s Happy Howlidays

Dies Used: Lawn Fawn’s Small Stitched Rectangles

Ink: Versa Fine

Distress Inks in Black Soot, Hickory Smoke, Mermaid Lagoon, Mustard Seed, and Walnut Stain


Hope you enjoyed the card

Christmas Tags 2.0

August 18, 2016 Update!!

These tags were featured on Lawnscaping Challenges blog. I was  Spotted and Hearted!!


July 19, 2016

I am trying to get a head start on my Christmas tags this year. I started with this set of 12. Six were done with an ombre effect. The other six were an excuse for me to practice my ink blending.


The ombre set. I used these ink colors



The color blending set. I also added water droplets to this set. I used three colors on each tag. Here are the colors I used.



Extra Details:  I started with a full sheet of water color paper. I stamped and white heat embossed snowflakes all over it. Once the embossing was cooled, I die cut the large piece of paper into twelve tags. I had a few small strips left over also; you may see them in some other tags later on. Then, I started ink blending. Lots and lots of ink blending. I added water drops to the multi colored tags. To finish the tags, I cut small strips and heat embossed a sentiment on them. I used gold or silver embossing powder. I tied the tags together with some silver raffia I had in my stash.
