Flower wreath with Majestix stamps

Couldn't really get enough of stamping with my new Majestix stamps so here is another card with a different design. Not a full wreath, just a C-shaped one. I used distress inks to stamp (it works surprisingly well) in the colors of:
  • Shabby shutters
  • Bundled sage
  • Mowed lawn (just a few sprigs)
  • Victorian velvet
  • Dusty concorde
  • Hickory smoke (just a few sprigs)
Majestix c-shaped flower wreath
Shabby shutters and Bundled sage make the most beautiful leaf colors. Victorian velvet seems to be the perfect color for the clover flower.

The panel is diecut with the largest of the Lawn Fawn stiched rectangles. Just missing a sentiment, probably going to put "Happy summer" in there, and then we're good to go.

Card for wedding elopers

This past week, one of my colleagues let us now, in passing, that she'll be off on Friday because she's getting married. So, I took the chance and created this wedding style card with some stamps that I borrowed from Hillevi at the big scrap event in May. Thanks again!

Bicycle made for you - Lawn Fawn


The characters are colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and a water brush. I fuzzy cut the characters and their accessories (not my favorite thing, love coordinating dies *big smile*). The background is made with tree diecuts from MFT, clouds by Lawn Fawn and also the grassy hill and road is made by Lawn Fawn stitched hillside border dies. I also used Lawn Fawn watercolor wishes paper as well as their patterned paper as well. What can I say, I have a crush on Lawn Fawn =)

And finally, the thank you cards were done

I spent some time making thank you cards to my children's daycare teachers and here is how they finally came out.
Thank you for everything
The two on the left says that says "Kram" simply means hugs. The dies are from Rox stamps and Gummiapan. They're made with Cardio flower stamps. I actually stamped with Distress inks and it worked great.

The one in the middle is the cutest little elephant from My favorite things. The paper is Lawn Fawn rainbow plad.

In the top right I used a Lawn Fawn stamp set, Mom+me, and did a lot of masking to get all the "kids" in there. Colored it with Zig clean color real brush markers.

And the last one on the bottom right is a background stamp from Hero Arts, I think, white heat embossed with distress inks in Seedless preserves, Wilted violet and Shaded lilac. The sentiment is a Lawn Fawn die, stacked three high.

Purrthday card with party hats

I seem to be needing and endless supply of birthday cards so for this edition of the Inky Paws challenge, I went with a birthday theme.

I first stamped and heat embossed the party hats in white. I then used Distress Inks Mustard seed, Spiced marmalade and Picked raspberry and sponged the background. I diecut two pieces of white cardstock and the distressed panel with a stiched rectangle from Lawn Fawn. I popped up the two white pieces with foam tape. I stamped the kitties on Britstol smooth card stock and colored them in with Zig clean color real brush markers. Some Wink of Stella for the ribbon and bag. I used a stiched circle and a sentiment stamped on to black cardstock to ground the kitties a bit better.

I first stamped and heat embossed both the balloon in white. I then used Distress Inks Mustard seed, Spiced marmalade and Picked raspberry and sponged the background. I then diecut that piece together with two white pieces to get one single frame. I stamped the kitty on Britstol smooth card stock and colored him in with Zig clean color real brush markers. Some Wink of Stella for the pink ribbon. To ground the kitty a bit better I cut a stiched circle and framed him and also let him stand on the sentiment which is white heat embossed on black cardstock.

Penguin party

I wanted to participate in Lawn Fawnatics latest challenge which is Black, white and bright and immediately thought of the penguin stamp set to use. However, that is a winter themed one and I couldn't really think of a way to make it in to spring/summer so I simply went with holiday theme and a real penguin party!

I stamped the images on to water color cardstock and colored them in with Zig clean color real brush markers. The tree is a solid stamp so that is stamped with Twisted citron Distress ink and the stump is colored with a brown Zig. The background is done with distress inks and some masking. I did the rays with a Tim Holtz stencil and sponging. Then I heat embossed with Holographic embossing powder. I finished of the sky with some Nuvo glitter drops.
