Baby Cards featuring Lawn Fawn

Sharing a card I designed to greet new babies.
Both cards feature Lawn Fawn's "Bon Voyage" set. 
The boy version also used "Harold's ABCs". 
The planes were colored with Copics.

The girl version features pink patterned paper by Echo Park and a sentiment by Verve.

I am posting to share these for the Lawnscaping FB DT call.
I think I have 23 Lawn Fawn sets and more on the wishlist.
ALWAYS more on the list...
Thanks for stopping by to look at my projects.
Have a great week!

Poppy Sketch 15

Back on this Monday morning with another card featuring the sketch from Poppy Sketches.
We are featuring wood veneer from Gina K designs.
I am also featuring a stamp by Gina K called Beyond Baskets

I didn't have any houndstooth patterned paper or stamps,
so I cut the background design on my Silhouette.
I colored the wagon with Copics.
I punched flowers out of the foil and glitter paper (both by DCWV).
I covered the wood veneer with Stampendous glitter.
To set the glitter, I sprayed it with a bit of HAIRSPRAY (whaaaaat?)
Please tell me how you would have done it. I didn't want to use gloss on top...

Here's a close-up:

Thanks for stopping by.
Hope you play along with this week's Poppy Sketch Challenge!

Coffee Lover's Blog Hop

Glad to be joining the Coffee Lover's Blog Hop!
As an avid coffee drinker (hot or cold) I was excited to play along!
Grab a cup of java, join the fun, link up and be eligible for some great prizes!

 Made two coffee themed cards.
Both feature "Be a Barista" stamp set by Reverse Confetti.
I added Glossy Accents to the liquid on both.

On this one, I used the plain liquid stamp (top left on stamp set)
at the bottom of the cup for a shadow.  I masked the cup. 
Those are my homemade enamel dots made from melted perle beads.

Thanks for hopping along. 
Have a great day continuing your journey through the awesome cards.

PS14: Halloween card

Back with  the new Poppy Sketches Challenge #14.
We are featuring Halloween stamps by Starving Artists, but you can use

I played a bit with the sketch and ended up making three cards.
As you can tell, I was a but partial towards the cute mummy!

Here are the stamps featured by the Design Team:

I did generational stamping with the tree stamp on the last card.

Thanks for stopping by!
can't wait to see what YOU create using the sketch!

Poppy Sketch #13

It is time for a new sketch challenge at Poppy Sketches.
This challenge is sponsored by Stampendous.

I used this butterfly stamp

Butterfly Pattern Rubber Stamp

Fall Tendril Rubber Stamp

I stamped the tendril with Memento London Fog. 
I embossed the butterfly image 3 times with Ranger black Sparkle embossing powder.
I cut each one out and colored with Copics to fit the color palette as best I could.
My "pink" Copics are the RVs and a bit more purple-y.
The yellow one is raised with foam. 

The sparkle embossing powder looks AMAZING with this stamp.  
I made another card featuring the whole stamp I will post soon. 
Can't wait to see what you create with the challenge!

JB: Christmas "tweet"

My cyber friend Amy created a sketch for the 
Jingle Belle challenge and I wanted to play along.  

I flipped Amy's sketch to put the sentiment up and the main image low, but then the card took its own direction.  The little birdie was getting lost on the black paper so I used the stitched journaling die to give it a place and just kept going.... 

Lawn Fawn "Chit Chat" stamps and dies, "Stitched Journaling" die, papers
Hero Arts: sentiment
Stampendous: Frontage stuff (first time using it)
