This is the last card using the Lawn Fawn Life is Good stamp and die set -- for now anyway! This is another card that is inspired by Debby Hughes. She does the most amazing things with tags on cards and I want to do that more often. I love the look.
Another card using the cat and dog stamp set from the This is The Life collection from Simon Says Stamp.... This set is just so cute. When I got it I didn't have the die set (but I do now). So I had to fussy cut it. I also like the Pawesome word die. I am sure I will be using that in the future!
For this card the background is done on watercolor paper and inked up lightly with distress ink. I used a Copic marker to create little flicks of grass and give it more definition. The doggie is stamped on Neenah paper and colored with Copics.
I sure did use a lot of products to create this tiny card! Ha! I did the embossing and iron off technique that I used on this card. The bee was colored with Copics and the wings were covered with glossy accents to give them a bit of dimension.
I don't know this little boy but I was touched by the story about him that I saw on Facebook. Look here. He is turning 6 today and is battling cancer. And all he wanted was cards for his birthday. I can do that! I made this card hoping it will bring a smile to his face.
More in the series of making cards using things within reach on my craft desk! Ha! When I buy a paper pad I don't often buy all of the "accessories" that come with it because I have found that I don't use them. I made an exception in this case and got the banners and brads because they were just so darn cute! So I was determined to use them this time and I did on these cards. Allowing me only those supplies to create the card designs meant that these came together super quick.
This card was made with a piece of background that was also used on this card. I love when you make one background piece and you can cut it up and make more than one card. That made this come together really quickly using the adorable Pen Pal stickers. They are kind of rubbery and pliable and so cute!
I made this card using a strip that was cut off of this card. Another challenge to myself to use what was on my desk and this little piece was still hanging around. :-) Once I embossed the greeting on red cardstock this card came together very quickly.
One day I decided that I had to create with whatever was in reach on my craft table. This background piece with the embossing paste is something I had made months ago and never done anything with. So, it became the foundation for this card. Simple from there really... I recently rediscovered the Ranger terra cotta embossing powder and I loved the color so much that I made. the card around it.
When I was playing with yesterday's card I saved the pieces that I didn't use and was able to create two cards using the negative space of the die. I particularly love the one with the wood paper. You can find great wood grain patterned paper like what I used on yesterday's card but there is something about the real thing.
