You Are My Wildest Dream! Lawn Fawn Video

The Lawn Fawn boy and girl have a new pose, thanks to the Joy to All stamp set.  The kids are kneeling, but from a birds eye view, the look like they are lying down and sleeping.  I thought I'd capitalize on that and create a little dream sequence:


 A bit of masking went into the thought bubble scene.  On the video, I have a fun trick to share about how to line up and position the various layers of stamps.

Here's the video demonstrating how this card came together.  You can watch it here, on Lawn Fawn's YouTube channel, or on my YouTube channel:

Having a Blast with Lawn Fawn's Flippy Flappy! | Video!

The men in my family are a tough crowd when it comes to birthday cards.  Their "refined" taste requires the type of humor that reverts them back to that little boy that snickers when someone says the word "butt".  Today I think I have a card worthy enough to send:

Lawn Fawn's Simon Says Stamp Feature

These two really know how to stink it up when it comes to friendship - in a good way!!  Simon Says Stamp is featuring this card full of Lawn Fawn goodies on their blog today.  See below for a full list of supplies.  I really wanted to give the 'scent' of this card priority:

The background was stenciled with both Pixie Dust and Glow-in-the-dark stencil paste.  Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, and Vintage Photo were ink blended over the paste.  This is certainly not a color blend that I would normally use!

To create the sentiment, I used Oliver's Stitched ABCs, along with a mix of words from a three different stamp sets.  The stitched letters are raised with foam adhesive.

The Glow-in-the-dark stencil paste gives off a wonderful green glow that shows up even with just a little bit of darkness!

Thank you, Simon Says Stamp, for the opportunity to share this Lawn Fawn card!

Three Inky Backgrounds with Lawn Fawn | Video!

Here's a fun color combination of Distress Inks:  Speckled Egg and Chipped Sapphire. 
I decided to try a variety of watercolor backgrounds using those inks and the newest release from Lawn Fawn:


The first background is a combination of ink blending and applying ink/water to a dry background:

The second background is ink applied with a brush onto a wet background:

 The third background is ink smooshed directly onto the paper and then spritzed with water:

 

I created a video demonstrating how I created each background.  You can watch it here, on Lawn Fawn's YouTube channel, or on my YouTube channel:
