So A-Moose-Ing!

Hello! Today I joined along with the latest Lawn Fawnatics challenge, which was a simple sketch. I pulled out my favorite Father's Day stamp set to create this cute card today.




I really really love this adorable Lawn Fawn set called "Dad + Me". I used this set for my Father's Day cards last year as well! To create this card I first did a lot of die cutting to create the circular scene to match the sketch.


I die cut a circle from Spellbinders nesting circle dies and used that as my base. Next I die cut the Stitched Mountain Border Lawn Fawn die from white cardstock. I used my Distress Inks in Peeled Paint, Tea Dye, and Crushed Olive to blend out the greenish-brownish color. The snow caps were colored with just a light touch of Distress Ink Antique Linen.


My cute baby mooses and Daddy moose were stamped on Neenah Solar White Cardstock and colored with Copic Markers. I fussy cut the images with my Cutter Bee scissors and popped them on the mountain scene with foam adhesive.

Finally the sentiment was heat embossed in white on black cardstock.

Dad - your jokes are always a-moose-ing! I love this because my dad is pretty hilarious and also wears glasses, so it fits perfectly!

Sparkle Wherever You Go

Leave a Little Sparkle Wherever You Go! Today I'm sharing an easy mixed media card that is filled with glitter and shimmer. The background of the card was inspired by a friend's water bottle that had these great waves of blues, geometric grids, and black doodles. I'm pretty happy with the outcome and the entire card came together in about 45 minutes (including drying time!)


The background was created by using a Gelatos Smoosh technique... you can see the entire process in my video. The Iridescent and Metallic Gelatos already have so much shimmer in the pigment, it really adds a lot of shine!



I'll be entering this card into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge (Sparkle and Shine) and the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge (Let's Doodle).



Get all the How-To details by watching my process video. Enjoy!

You Make me Smile

Welcome Back! I have a video for you all today creating this card. I busted out the ol' stencils and modeling paste for the current Simon Says Stamp Texture Challenge.


I mixed the modeling paste with Distress Oxide Inks, which is now my new favorite way to stain texture paste! I also colored these adorable images from the Simon Says Stamp "Best Friends" stamp set with Copic markers. 


Did I mention I have a video?! It's been a while! You can watch it here or click the play button below... Enjoy :)
