Reverse Confetti September SFYTT


**This is my second post for the day! If you are looking for my Lawn Fawn/Scrapbook Adhesives collaboration post, please scroll down**


Hello there!  Today, I have a card to share with you for the Reverse Confetti SFYTT challenge!!  There is still time to play along! Here is this month's sketch:


And here is the card that I created following the sketch!

To create my card, I started off with a white card base.  I cut a piece of Tangerine cardstock and a piece of patterned paper from the Fright Night patterned paper pad, to follow the sketch.  I diecut the Insta-Frame Confetti Cuts from black cardstock and then cut a piece of watercolor paper to fit inside the frame.  I used Chipped Sapphire and Wilted Violet distress inks to create an ink blended background, then splattered it with clean clear water to bleach out some areas.  Then I stamped, colored and diecut images from the Best Witches stamp set and Too Cute to Spook stamp set to create my scene.  I popped everything up with foam tape, the stamped a sentiment from Too Cute to Spook on a banner diecut from the Flowers for Mom Confetti Cuts dies set.  Finally, I stamped a trio of stars from Best Witches in the upper right corner to follow the sketch.

I just absolutely love these two stamp sets together.  They are a perfect match, and it makes it so easy to create adorable halloween cards!  So many mix and match options make the possibilities endless!

Lawn Fawn & Scrapbook Adhesives

Hello there!  This week, the Lawn Fawn design team is collaborating with Scrapbook Adhesives to bring you some inspiration using both of their products!

For my project, I created a halloween treat box using the Scalloped Treat Box cut from some Perfectly Plaid Fall patterned paper.  I die cut two pieces for the box and assembled it using Dodz Glue Dots.  I diecut the Stitched Tree Borders from Black Licorice cardstock and adhered that to the box using the E-Z Runner Fine Tape Runner.  I stamped my favorite monster from Monster Mash, colored him with copic markers, diecut him and popped him up using 3D Foam Squares.  I did the same with the smallest clouds from the Simple Puffy Clouds dies set, cut from Narwhal cardstock.  I made a little star tag using the Tiny Tags dies, cut from white cardstock, then colored with a black marker.  This allows the stitched detail to really stand out.  I used diecut the smallest star from the Puffy Star Stackables out of Fake Tan cardstock, and popped that up on the bigger star using 3D Black Foam Squares.  I love having them in two colors!  It really hides them on black cardstock!  I tied the tag to the box using Spooky Lawn Trimmings, and added some accents with a white gel pen to finish things off.

Reverse Confetti and Simon Says Stamp STAMPTEMBER exclusive!



Hello there! Today I have a card to share with you using the Reverse Confetti and Simon Says Stamp STAMPTEMBER exclusive stamp set, Forest Friends!  This stamp set is only available in the Simon Says Stamp store, and only while supplies last!

I challenged myself to make a one layer card, and boy, do I miss my foam tape!  I am so used to creating with lots of layers, but simple masking and coloring was fun too!  I added a few accessories to the forest critters, including the party hat and balloons from another Reverse Confetti stamp set, Monkey Business.  I stamped everything in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and colored the images with my Copic Markers, then added a few accents with a white gel pen.

Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week - Small Stitched Envelope and Dotted Stackables


Hello there!  Today, we are wrapping up this month's Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week!  Today, we are showcasing the new Small Stitched Envelope die and the Dotted Stackables dies!  I have been using the Dotted Stackables of most of my projects this week, so you can see them in action if you scroll through this week's post.  Today, I have a little project using the Small Stitched Envelope die. 

This die is adorable, and there are probably a bunch of things that will fit inside.  It is perfect for a gift card!  Apart from that, I opened the door of my pantry last week, and spied a box of tea bags sitting on the shelf.  To my delight, a tea bag fits inside this envelope!  How cute would it be to package up a teabag, and pair it with a pretty mug as a little pick-me-up gift for someone who is not feeling well?  Or as little place settings for a Mommy-and-Me tea party?

I diecut a piece of Perfectly Plaid Christmas paper (which you can use for SO much more than Christmas, by the way!), and made a cute little tag using the Tiny Tags dies, cut from a piece of Peacock cardstock.  Then I stamped, colored and diecut the little tea cup, tea bag tag, and rising steam from the Love You a Latte stamp set.  I tied it on with a piece of Green Sparkle Lawn Trimmings, in a pretty bow.

Hello there!  Welcome to another day of Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week!  Today we are showcasing the Cheery Christmas stamp set and coordinating dies!

To create my card today, I started off by diecutting the Leafy Tree Backdrop Portrait from white cardstock.  Then I diecut some kraft cardstock with the largest die from the Small Dotted Rectangles Stackables.  This size rectangles nestles perfectly inside the opening of the Leafy Tree Backdrops diecut,  I ran the kraft cardstock through my diecut machine again using the Snowy Backdrop die, and then diecut a hill using the Simple Stitched Hillside borders dies.  I stamped the tree from Cheery Christmas in Freshly Cut Grass ink, and the squirrels, acorn and star in black ink, and then colored those with Copic Markers.  I adhered the tree flat to the card snowy backdrop, and popped the other pieces up with foam tape,  To finish off my card, I added some white gel pen accents, and stamped a sentiment from Merry Messages on a hand cut banner using Black Licorice ink.

I started off by diecutting a piece of the 6x6 Perfectly Plaid Christmas papers with the largest die from the Large Dotted Rectangles Stackables dies.  I added a snowy hill with the Simple Stitched Hillside Borders, cut from white card stock.  Then, I stamped, colored and diecut a bunch of pieces from the Making Frosty Friends stamp set.  I paper pieced the scarf and hat using more papers from the Perfectly Plaid Christmas collection, and diecut some snowflakes using the Stitched Snowflakes dies.  Then I stamped a sentiment from the same stamp set on a hand cut banner, and popped it up with some foam tape.  I added a few white gel pen accents to finish things off.

Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week - Narwhal and Friends and String of Lights

Hello there!  Welcome to day 4 of Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week!!  Today, we are showcasing some super fun stand alone dies!  As soon as I saw the String of Lights dies, I knew immediately that they would be a favorite!  They are so whimsical and fun!

I wanted the lights to be in the spotlight on my card, so I used neutral colors for the background.  I started out my card by diecutting a piece of the Perfectly Plaid Winter paper with the largest die from the Large Dotted Rectangles dies, and adhering that to a white card base.  I trimmed a piece of white cardstock, and diecut the smallest size light from the String of Lights dies five times from white cardstock.  There are three sizes of lights in the set, each size has two pieces that make up the bulb - the solid light, and the light with the shine mark diecut out of it.  I colored the lights with copic markers, and backed each light with a white diecut bulb so that the shine mark would really show on the brightly colored bulbs,  I diecut the string and light sockets from Narwhal cardstock.  I set up the lights how I wanted them on the white cardstock, then made tiny pencil markers at the tip of each bulb.  I used Distress inks and an ink blending tool to add faint color halos to make the lights look like they are glowing.  Then I glued the light string down with a glue pen, and popped up each light with foam tape.  I added a sentiment from the Winter Gifts stamp set, and added some Icicle Stickles to each bulb for some glitter and shine.  I used the Stitched Scalloped Borders dies to cut a scalloped edge for each side of the panel from Narwhal cardstock, and then popped the panel up on the plaid card base.
