Welcome Kanga Baby - Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #3


Hey friends, happy Monday! It's time for our third Lawn Fawnatics Challenge: Outstanding Occasions. Create your finest for those milestone moments in life -- wedding, anniversary, baby, or graduation. 

For my card, I was actually inspired by one of my followers, who commented that a card I made on Friday would make a great baby card. So I pulled out one of my favorite "baby" Lawn Fawn images,  the kangaroo from Critters Down Under and created a little scene around her, coloring my images with Copic markers.

Then I took my leftover scraps from Friday's card to create a new one (love getting two different cards out of the same supplies!) and die cut them using Large Stitched Rectangle StackablesStitched Party BannersLarge Stitched Circle Stackables, and Scalloped Circle Stackables. I layered them all together, popped my focal panel up with foam tape, and added some sequins for a little extra elegance.

Head on over to the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge Blog to check out the rest of the amazing projects from the design team, and don't forget to link up your own for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate! I hope you all have an amazing day. Thanks for stopping by!

Galaxy Spinner - Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #2


Hey friends! It's time for our second Lawn Fawnatics Challenge! This time we're calling for interactive cards, because they're just so super fun! I wanted to challenge myself to do something I've never done before, so I chose a spinner card, and to make things just a little bit more interesting, I decided to try a galaxy background for the first time as well!


I started out my coloring my images from Out of This World with Copic markers and die cutting them with the matching dies. Then I created my galaxy background using Distress Inks and also a moon using the Simple Stitched Hillside Borders. I cut my spinner track out with the Slide On Over Circles and gave everything a nice stitched edge with the Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables.

There are two different ways to build your penny slider mechanism and I show you both in the video. I mounted my panel with a double layer of foam tape onto a card base of Narwhal cardstock and did some additional stamping on the inside with Hippo ink. As a finishing touch, I added a sprinkling of stars using Starry Skies and some Pretty Pink Posh Mini Iridescent Star Confetti.

Meow You Doin'? - Kitty Collab with Kari


Hey friends! Today I'm super excited to be doing a special collaboration with my dear friend Kari of KWCardDesign on YouTube! We're both making cards featuring the adorable Lawn Fawn Meow You Doin'? stamp set, as well as the Perfectly Plaid Rainbow 6x6 pad.


Ever since I saw the sneak peeks for Bicycle Built for You, I knew I wanted to take the small cat image and pair it with the kitties from Meow You Doin'? to make him look like a kitten. I think it totally works, don't you?

I colored my images with Copic markers and created a soft background using the MFT English Brick Stencil and some Distress Inks. All supplies are listed and linked in the description bar below the video on YouTube.

Click the YouTube icon at the bottom right corner to watch it there in HD and please don't forget to like, comment, and subscribe! It really helps out, and I love reading your thoughts.



When you're done, you can check out Kari's video by clicking the link here or in the description bar over on YouTube. Her card is a surprise even to me, and I can't wait to see what she came up with!

Isn't it fun to see what unique designs people come up with using the same products? I always find it fascinating and I hope that you will too. Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Ahoy Matey + Friday Feature at BRI


Hey friends, I'm back with my second post of the day! For my Lawn Fawnatics Feature click here. Today happens to be a Double Feature Friday, as I'm also up on the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog with a fun pirate-themed card using the new Neat & Tangled Yo Ho Ho stamp set.

When I was a little girl, I was obsessed with the movie and TV series Treasure Island, so this set is full blown nostalgia for me. I ended up creating two cards, so I'm featuring the boy on my blog, and the girl version over at BRI.


These Pretty Pink Posh Clear Droplets ended up being the perfect accent for both cards. They look like little splashes of water, so they work great even for masculine cards. It's not easy to find embellishments that work well for both, but these definitely do.

I finished off the insides of the cards with some additional stamping and the leftover colored and die cut images.


For links to all the other supplies, please head over to the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog and check out my feature. Here's a sneak peek of how the other card turned out. I can't decide which is my favorite!


Do you struggle with using patterned paper on your cards? In today's video tutorial, I go over a few tips on how to pull in different prints and also how to use the colors to inspire your coloring. I hope you enjoy it!
