Feathered Friend - Pretty Pink Posh

Hello Crafty Friends! Today I decided to do some heat embossing and ink smooshing. I recently picked up the Peacock Friends stamp set from Pretty Pink Posh and I had this idea brewing in the back of mind my for a while. I white heat embossed the feathers all over some watercolor paper in a random pattern. Once embossed I smooshed some Distress Ink (not oxides!) on my easy clean mat. I used Peacock Feathers (obviously had to!) Mermaid Lagoon, Cracked Pistachio and lastly Wilted Violet. I then used a few copic markers in similar colors to highlight the feathers and make them stand out from the background. I white heat embossed the sentiment as well on some black cardstock.

Fairy Friends - Waffle Flower

Hello Crafty Friends! I have a slight obsession with fairies (and dragons too to be fair) so I snatched up this set right away. I wanted a little twilight scene for this card so I ink blended some distress oxide ink in blueprint sketch along the top of the card concentrating on the edges. I brought in a little shaded lilac in the center for a soft sky transition. I used twisted citron for the ground which blends nicely with the blueprint sketch to form a darker green. I used copic opaque white for splatter to give that nice starry sky effect.

I was smitten with the dandilion fluffs when I saw them so I just had to add some puff to them. I used Neon Amplify which I had never used before and it worked like a charm! I just put a little bit around one edge and then hit it with my heat tool until it puffed up.

The images are all colored using copics. I added a bit of sparkle to the fairy wings using liquid glue and Lawn Fawns prisma glitter. I finished off the card with a simple white heat embossed sentiment.

Fun With Food - Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 50


Hey everyone, here with an entry for the Lawn Fawnatics 50th challenge! I love all of the fun food sets that Lawn Fawn comes out with but this little S'more is by far my favorite. S'mores are some of my favorite summertime foods. They remind me of all the fun times I spent camping.

**And I realize now I must have been channeling Jessica because I even used the same sentiment. Great minds and all that!!

I made a simple distress oxide ink blended background. I combined twisted citron with mermaid lagoon. I splattered the background with more of the same colors along with some copic opaque white. I die cut using a Lawn Fawn stitched circle. I curved a sentiment to go around the outside of the circle and stamped it in Lawn Fawn's Jet Black ink. The S'mores are copic colored in various shades of brown. The crackers are in e30s, the marshmallows are e50's and the chocolate is e20's. I used a tiny enamle heart from Doodlebug.

Be Friends - Waffle Flower

Hello Crafty friends! I've been so excited to play with some of my new Waffle Flower goodies! I just had to start with the new Be Her set. I started also in on the 100 days project on Instagram and these cards just kind of fell together because of that. My 100 day project are backgrounds. I am just playing with different media and color combos and hopefully at the end of it will have made 100 cards!

The backgrounds were done with distress ink water colored on some Bristol paper. All except the unicorn; if you can spot the subtle off white color. I have no idea what that is but it was mixed in with my pre-cut Bristol. I didn't notice until I was photographing that it didn't match the rest. I did some very simple copic coloring on all the animals. In fact the bodies are all done with C1-C5 in varying amounts. For the sentiments I grabbed some of my other Waffle Flower sets. I think the kitten is my favorite. I love this set so much I had to get the companion Be Him set as well. Can't wait for it to arrive.

Dino-Mite! - Lawn Fawn

Hello crafty friends! Just a few quick cards I whipped up for my local shop here in Chicago; Craft Fancy. I just love playing with the dino sets from Lawn Fawn. This has both Critters from the Past (Tree ) and Rawsome. I used the new Spiffy Speckles petite paper in purple for the bottom layer and some distress oxide in dried marigold.

Flying Higher - Mama Elephant

I am back with another card today featuring Mama Elephant Fly With Me stamp set.  I used distress oxide in peacock feathers and the MFT stamps cloud stencil for the background. Its a really simple card; perfect for my friends babyshower.

Fairy Friend - Mama Elephant

Hello everyone! I've got an extra sweet fairy card today. I was instantly in love with the fairies as soon as I saw a sneak peek from Mama Elephant. They pair so perfectly with the new floral boarder set as well. I always like to have a general occasion card on hand so this worked out perfectly.

For the floral boarder I stamped on some Bristol paper using Jet Black ink from Lawn Fawn and then got out several shades of purple, green and yellow Tombow Dual Brush pens. I used only one color and blended out with a water brush. The fairies are done with copics.

Copics: BV13, BV11, BV31 & BV0000; E21 & E00; E44, E43, E40
Tombows: 603, 606, 676, 055, 879, 177, 249, 243, N55

Everything Dinos! - Lawn Fawn

I was beyond excited to see more Dino stamps from Lawn Fawn. I absolutely love Dinosaurs ever since I saw Land Before time as a child. I think I got my sass from Cera si I of course had to use the puny sentiment for her.

The sky, grass & sand are all the new Spiffy Speckles paper from Lawn Fawn. Its absolutely perfect for scene setting! The water is some distress oxide in peacock feathers and die cut with die from Bayou Backdrops. The sentiment is distress oxide in mermaid lagoon and I stamped it on the new Fancy Wavy Banners. All my images were stamped using antique linen distress ink and then colored using Tombow Dual Brush markers. They were blended using water and a paint brush. I am loving how this no line adventure turned out. What do you think?

Send love & hugs - Pretty Pink Posh

Once I got my hands onto these floral Cherry Blossoms stamps I was just dying to white heat emboss them and do a bit of watercolor with my Tombow Dual Brush Pens. I added in one of the new Beautiful Butterflies for a finishing touch too. For a touch of sparkle I used some of the Sweet Pea sequin mix.

Have a lucky day! - Lawn Fawn

I might have a drop or two of Irish blood in me... somewhere. My Scottish family moved to Ireland and then onto Nova Scotia. That's on my Dads side. My red hair is actually courtesy of my mom's Russian roots. But I'll always celebrate St. Patrick's day like any good Chicagoan. So a bit of luck to you today!

For the card I used Black Soot Distress Ink blended onto a forest green cardstock panel and splattered with Gansai Tambi Starry Colors in the color yellow gold. I heat embossed the sentiment with Lawn Fawn's Gold embossing powder onto one of the new Fancy Wavy Banners. The shamrocks are from an older Lawn Fawn set My Lucky Charm.

Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 48 – Inspired by a Book, Movie or Song!

I was so excited to see this months challenge and I have been so inspired by everyones cards. I had a couple ideas in mind but I really had to make one as a favorite childhood cartoon; David the Gnome. I got my love of gnomes from that show. My card features David and his best friend Swift the Fox.

The card features the new Lawn Fawn speckled papers in blue and green. I also used some of the woodgrain cardstock in the dark brown for David's house. 

Copic colors:
RV66, R29, R27, R24 for the reds.
B97, B95, B93 for the blues.
E18, E17, E15 with a glaze of YR24 for the fox with some E49 for the legs.

Pretty Pink Posh March Blog Hop

Hello! Thanks f or joining me at the Pretty Pink Posh March 2019 Product Release Blog Hop. I am so thrilled to be joining in this month. As you can see by my multitude of cards it was hard just to pick one thing. You cannot go wrong with any of this release and I know I am going to need all of it!

Card 1: For this card I started with the new stunning Spring Frame die. I couldn't resist making a shaker out of it. Just to perfect. I ink blended the background using distress oxide inks in Blueprint Sketch and Shaded lilac and a light misting of water for texture. The sentiment is from another older PPP set Everyday Greetings. A friend of mine has recently gone through some surgery and I needed just the perfect card to send. I think this does the job, don't you?

Card 2: For this one I tried something a little different. I white heat embossed the wreath on some water color cardstock before die cutting. Once it was cut I used a few shades of distress ink to watercolor in the wreath. I chose my colors based on the new Easter confetti mix which I also used to finish off the wreath. Instead of leaving the space white between the foliage I used a light wash of cracked pistachio. Aren't the colors just so springy? The sentiment is also white heat embossed, this time on vellum so that the wreath would still show through. The background is done with distress oxides in Cracked Pistachio and Peacock Feathers with a splattering of the same inks along with some white paint.

Card 3: For this one I did the background in the colors of distress oxides; Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean and Wilted Violet. I chose a few copic colors to match and that's what I used on the butterflies with very simple coloring and shading. The sentiment is liquid platinum embossing. I also embellished with a few of the new confetti mix.

Card 4: And lastly a more pastel card then the previous ones but the colors on this were based around the confetti mix from the background to the eggs themselves. The background is again distress oxides in Warm Lipstick and Scattered Straw. I used a very light wash of watercolors on the eggs, white heat embossed the sentiment and ended with a scattering of confetti.

Fairy Delivery - Lawn Fawn

Today  I have another video for you featuring some older Lawn Fawn sets. I had a bit of gnome fever seeing the new set that was coming when I remember this Gnome sweet Gnome set from waaaay back. I ended up combining Gnome Sweet Gnome with Gleeful Gardens & Fairy Friends and the slide on over dies for a fun interactive element. I hope you enjoy the video!

Hummingbird Garden (Pretty Pink Posh)

Hey Friends here with a few cards featuring Pretty Pink Posh stamps and dies. When I first started the shaker card and was putting it together one thing after another kept going wrong. I reached a point I didn't think I was going to be able to save a single piece of it. So I started a second version. When I was halfway through the next card I decided to have another go at the first one and I was able to deconstruct it and fix it. Just goes to show you shouldn't give up! Now I have two cards!!

Supplies Used:
