Rings of Thanks

March 25, 2016

I ordered my first ever card kit, the Simon Says Stamp March 2016 card kit. For this card, I used the pattern paper that came in the kit. It is by Echo park. I had also just gotten the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circles dies. Before cutting all the dies apart, I die cut the pattern paper to make all these fun rings.

Grandma Love Card

March 25, 2016

I got the new Mom + Me stamp set and could not resist making a card to my mom from my kiddos.

Details

Size:  Vertical top fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I double stamped the speech bubbles with Distress Inks. For example, I stamped two bubbles in Squeezed Lemonade right next to each other. Then, I stamped Mustard Seed Distress Ink on top of one of the Squeezed Lemonade bubble to make a new color. I found this helped the colors blend very nicely.

I colored all the images with colored pencils and fussy cut them out. I adhered them flat to the stamped panel.

I used the Stitched Borders to add a detail to all edges of my stamped rectangle. I also ink blended some Mowed Lawn Distress Ink on the bottom corner to fill in the grass area.

Stamps Used: Lawn Fawn’s Mom + Me and Into the Woods

Dies Used: Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Borders

Ink: Distress Ink in Abandoned Coral, Mowed Lawn, Mustard Seed, Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, and Squeezed Lemonade
