Video Tutorial: Chocolate Easter Bunny Card

Hello! Today I have a yummy Easter Card to share with you including a video showing how I created it.  This card features one of my favorite Easter sets from Lawn Fawn, Eggstra Special Easter.  I think those little chocolate rabbits are just too cute.  I loved getting choclate bunnies in my Easter basket when I was younger.


I created these little chocolate bunnies by white embossing the images on Chocolate Bar and Paper Bag cardstock.  I colored in the little accents with colored pencils for some soft color.


The eggs shaped background is colored by blending squeezed lemonade and tattered rose distress oxide inks.  Then I painted in the clouds with white gold watercolor.


I used the cream colored gingham paper on a Vanilla Malt cardstock base for a nice soft background that lets the colors of the background and bunnies pop.  Check out the video below or HERE on my YouTube channel to see exactly how I created this card. 

Thanks for stopping by today!

Lawn Fawn March Inspiration Week: Bayou Backdrop

Hello! Today is the last day of Lawn Fawn's March Inspiration Week.  Today we are featuring the new bayou backdrop die.


I decided to create a silhouette using the bayou backdrop and just die cuts of some of the farm animals from Hay There.  For the background I inked some Distress watercolor cardstock with distress oxide inks to create a pretty sunset sky.  I used wild honey, spiced marmalade and abandoned coral.  I flicked on some clean water as well as some gold watercolor paint.  I white embossed the sentiment from Simply Sentiments.


Thanks for joining me and all the other fawnies this week for inspiration week.  Be sure to visit the Lawn Fawn blog for more inspiration and thanks so much for stopping by today!

Lawn Fawn March Inspiration Week: Toadally Awesome

Hello! We are getting close to the end of this month's Lawn Fawn Inspiration week, but we are not quite done yet.  Today we are featruing the new set Toadally Awesome.


I believe we have finally reached the last of my Creativation jar scenes, but these are by far my favorites!  I created two frog scenes and really loved the idea of incorporating the bayou backdrop hanging from the top of the jar. I used two colors of cardstock and glued them to the inside of the jars with xtreme adhesive tape runner.  I did the same with the twine on the outside to hide the adhesive.  As a side note this technique works best on cylindrical jars with straight sides. (by the way I found these jars at Hobby Lobby and really liked working with them over Mason jars) I also really loved the opportunity to use different mosses for the base and the dark blue marbles to create these swampy scenes.


All the images are colored with Copic markers.  I put the jumping frog onto a coiled piece of copper wire so he is jumping through the air. (he is kind of hidded in the greenery in these pictures) And for the little dragonfly I just glued the die cut trail to the back of the little frog to make it look like it was in the air.
