Exclusive Cape Cod Stamps!

I am popping in today to share some fun stamps exclusive to my friend Jenn Shurkus' shop! She lives on Cape Cod and although I have never been (hopefully one day) she asked me to help by creating some cards with these new stamps you can get on her site.  You can read more about the stamps HERE on her blog.


I created two bright and happy rainbow cards to share using Jenn's new stamps! 


The first is an army of rainbow lobsters. I'll be honest if these were coming out of the sea at me I would probably run but they are rather cute on a card. I used the stitched waves border the Lawn Fawn Really Rainbow paper to create the edge of my water and the stitched puffy cloud border on some pixie dust sparkle cardstock to create the sea foam.  I used my paper as a guide for my lobster colors and just think this card turned out so fun!


My second card is a little more simple. I white embossed the images on vellum and then layered it over some rainbow striped paper.  Since the paper is so bright and colorful I kept the embellishing minimal with some clear iridescent sequins and a simple sentiment banner.

Be sure to check out Jenn's blog post about this stamp set and pick up a set for yourself in her shop.

Get Cracking On Christmas: Joyful Wishes

Hello! It's time for our monthly Get Cracking on Christmas post. The idea behind Get Cracking on Christmas sprung from the fact that many of us crafters who work in the industry with stamp companies seem to be busy with other things come the holiday season that we never seem to have time to make holiday projects.  So once a month we are making a holiday card so by the end of the year we are guaranteed to have a handful of holiday cards ready for the season and we will have given our holiday goodies some love. :) Today I'm joined by my friends Jenn and Cheiron sharing some holiday projects.


For my card today I played with some alcohol inks using Jennifer's method of applying them smoothly. I used a combination of Rangers regular alcohol inks and the new pearl inks, whose shimmer is hard to catch on camera.  I also used some regular alcohol and splattered it on for some texture.  I added the small gold splatters by using a brush and Jacquard gold alcohol ink.  I then cut the piece with the Pretty Pink Posh layered tree dies.


I used white woodgrain cardstock for the background and Lawn Fawn Pixie Dust sparkle cardstock for the ground. The sentiment is from Joy to the Woods and is white embossed on Chili Pepper cardstock. I added some gold and glitter washi tapes to the banner and behind it and cut the ornaments from some shimmery red paper. Be sure to visit Jenn and Cheiron to see their holiday cards as well. Please join us as we create holiday projects and share them using the hashtag #getcrackingonchristmas.

Lawn Fawn March Inspiration Week: Lattice Backdrop

Hello! Today is the last day of March Lawn Fawn Inspiration week. Today I have some projects using the Lattice Backdrop die.


This card has the lattice backdrop cut from Narwhal cardstock layered over an Apricot card base to make a beautiful pattern card as a base for my little spring scene.


I made the focal panel with a Spiffy Speckles blue sky and green grass and used the sweet little animals from Butterfly Kisses to make my little scene.


My other card is a standard size A2 card folded in half. This allowed me to fold the lattic backdrop so that it wraps around the entire card.  I colored a piece of vellum with copics to create a rainbow and layered that on the card base behind the black die cut lattice.  I wanted to keep it simple so I added the stitched banner from fancy wavy banners with a wavy sentiment.


I made this card this side because I liked the proportions with the pop-up butterfly inside.  Be sure to check out the Lawn Fawn blog for more Lattice Backdrop projects.
