It's been a while since I've shared a handmade card. I do still make them, especially when there's Lawn Fawn sitting on my desk waiting to be used! Today Paper Issues is featuring all things Lawn Fawn over at the blog! And don't forget Paper Issues sells Lawn Fawn in the store (and you can get 20% off with the code RWKRAFTS)!!!
It's hard to resist the off-the-charts cuteness of this new Lawn Fawn release. For my Flamingo card I used stamps "Flamingo Together" and "Yay, Kites!" that were colored with my Prismacolor Pencils. I also used some darling Lawn Fawn paper from the 6x6 "Let's Polka in the Meadow" stack.
I had a lot of fun creating this Mermaid card! I created the background by layering about 6 different blue Distress Inks, misting with water, then inking again... and again and again until I thought it looked like water. Then I stamped the seaweed along the bottom and up the side in a dark grey ink. This gives depth to the ocean scene and is so simple to do! Finally I stamped and colored just about every single image in the Lawn Fawn "Mermaid For You" stamp set. I stamped on watercolor paper and colored with my Faber Castell Aquarelle pencils. There are matching dies but I instead chose to fussy cut all of the images.
My last card today uses the cute mermaids again but with a much simpler background. I layered adorable papers from "Polka in the Meadow" and did some simple stamping on the bottom. These mermaids are also colored with Faber Castell Aquarelle pencils.
I'll try to create more cards now that I have some time over the summer! I just love these new Lawn Fawn stamps and I haven't even inked them all yet!
