Lawn Fawn Lots of Heart Challenge


Today I'm sharing a card I created for the current Lawn Fawn Lots of Heart challenge.  

I love all the Lawn Fawn products and I'm always using them.  This Valentine's release was just the cutest! 

I started by stenciling the background with the Falling Hearts Stencils with Distress Ink Oxides. I die cut the background with the largest Outside In Stitched rectangles and taped it to a patterned paper from the Let It Shine paper pack.  Than I die cut the Giant Outlined Love Ya die in white and red cardstock and took a light pink for the back.  I added some foam adhesive to give it some dimension. 

I colored the little mouse from All My Heart mini stamp set, that was free with my order, with Copic markes and die cut it and also popped it with foam adhesive.  Added the sentiment and a little heart.  Lastly I added some glossy accents in the hearts of the giant sentiment and the heart balloon.

The Greeting Farm: January Preview Day 2: Happy Days

 Welcome back to Day 2 of The Greeting Farm January previews

Today we introduce a sweet stamp set called Happy Days!  Love this set with all the cute little animals all cozy by the fire.  

I created a wintery forest scene by ink blending the background with Distress Ink Oxides.  I used a birch tree background die.  The tress and images were colored with Copics.   Images were die cut and I used some foam adhesive to make them pop.   The sentiment was heat embossed in white.  

This little scene makes me want to wrap up in a blanket too.   

Make sure you visit the other DTs for some amazing creations.   

See you tomorrow for our final day and don't forget  we will have our blog hop on the 15th for a chance to win this release!

Today The Greeting Farm is reelasing a new digital stamp perfect for Valentines called Anya Love

She is so adorable!! 

I created a couple of projects for this release.  

First I created a Valentine's card. 

 I used Distress Ink Oxides sprays to create a background with pinks and reds.  I sprayed some shimmery liquid and die cut the panel with this background heart die.  The back panel was also done with a stitched quilted die.   The image was colored with Copic markers and fussy cut. 

I added some glossy accents on the balloons and popped the image with foam adhesive.

Happy New Year with Beach Vibes

 Happy New Year Crafty Friends!! 

I hope everyone had a great holiday season!  We had a great Christmas at home and the following day we head down to sunny Florida.  What a great way to end the year and ring in the new one!  Nothing is better than toes in the sand and a cold beer in your hand!  That's what we did everyday we were there with the family and lots of wonderful friends.  

This card sums up pretty well our vacation. I'm on The Greeting Farm Blog sharing this card.  I used the adorable Beach Vibes stamp set.   Stamped the images in Copic paper and all was colored with Copic markers to create the beach scene.  

I used this cute scalloped dies to frame the scene and added to a white background.  I cut the 2023 numbers from cardstock that was ink blended with Distress Oxides ink sprays.  

I'm so looking forward to 2023, all the new TGF goodies and being part of this wonderful DT group for another year!  

Thanks for stopping by!
