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

Hope you enjoyed the card

Helix Get Well Card

March 20, 2016

My husband loves to play video games. He has even introduced our kiddos to a few of his favorites this year. As soon as my daughter saw the So Jelly stamp set by Lawn Fawn, she called the jellyfish Helix, a character from Dragon Quest Heroes game who also happens to be a healer in the game. So when my husband got sick with a cold, I knew I had to make him a get well card using my daughter’s idea.
