Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #22-One More Card!

7:54 PM 0 Comments

Hello! I'm sneaking in one more card for the Inky Fingers Challenge! This time I used the darling Rawr Stamp Set and Lawn Cuts-adorable! I started by sponging my background using Tumbled Glass Distress Ink for the sky and then cut a hill using the Stitched Hillside Borders Lawn Cuts. I then sponged the hill with Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide Ink. 

For the frame, I sponged a piece of white cs with Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Ink and splashed with some water. I then used the Outside In Stitched Scalloped Circle Stackables to cut my opening. So cute!


That's it for me today! Thanks for stopping by again!

More Lawn Fawn Tags!

4:40 PM 0 Comments

Hello! I have some fun tags to share with you today! I just love the current trend of sponging Distress Oxide Ink behind the image and also flicking drops of more saturated color. Such a cool look so I decided to give it a try!


For my first tag I used the adorable penguins from Snow Cool along with the Snow Cool Lawn Cuts. I colored my images with Copic Markers and cut them out. For the tag I used the Taylored Expressions Tag Stacklets 2 along with the Rectangle Flap Stacks. I cut the tag out of Watercolor paper and then sponged with some Broken China Distress Oxide Ink. I then added some of the color to a piece of acetate, spritzed with water, and used a paintbrush to flick the color onto the sponged portion. So cute!!! The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn Tiny Tag Sayings.


For my next tag I used one of the super sweet deer images from the Cheery Christmas Stamp Set and Cheery Christmas Lawn Cuts along with some Fired Brick Distress Oxide Ink. The sentiment is from Tiny Tag Sayings once again.


Finally, I used a darling bear from Beary Happy Holidays along with Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide Ink and a sentiment from the Winter Otter Stamp Set.

So much fun!!! I just love creating with these darling images! Thanks for stopping by today:)

Homemade with Love!

8:00 AM 1 Comments

Hello! So I finally got my Halloween decorations put away, and put out all of my fall décor:) We will have a full house next week with my parents, my sister, and her husband all coming from out of town for Thanksgiving. So after I got all of my fall decorations put out, I was in the mood to make some pumpkin bread!

The recipe makes 4 mini loaves plus a few muffins so I packaged up one of the loaves for my neighbor. I had to make a tag to go with it, so I used this ADORABLE stamp set from Your Next Stamp called Waddles-Homemade with Love:) I colored Waddles with Copic Markers and cut him out. I used a Zig Clean Color Real Brush Marker to add the orange watercoloring behind him and then simply stamped the sentiment below. So cute and simple!


Hopefully my neighbor will love it! She made us some banana bread recently that was soooo good so I wanted to return the favor:) Thanks for stopping by!
