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:




 

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

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:

Purple Onion Designs - Jingle Bells and Happy Tails

 This little scottie is all decked out in his tartan wool jumper, ready to ring in the holiday season!

Pierre is colored with Copic markers.  The star hanging from his tail was swapped with a jingle bell brad.  I paper pieced his scarf and sweater.  The tartan paper is straight from Scotland.

I used a Sizzix embossing folder to give texture to the white space in the background.  The sentiment was heat embossed in silver:

Purple Onion Designs - Muriel's Quadruple Back Flip

Hello sports fans, er, I mean stamp fans!  Today, Muriel is going to attempt a quadruple back flip:


 



And she sticks the landing!  Okay, maybe is was a single back flip, but I'm still impressed, Muriel!

In order for Muriel to spin, I cut a hole in the background paper behind Muriel's behind. I placed a piece of cardstock that was larger than the hole behind the paper, attached a small piece of foam adhesive to it, popped through the hole, and attached Muriel to the other side. 

 New collection stamp bundles are available at 30% now until Friday, November 12th!

Let It Snow with Lawn Fawn!

 Lawn Fawn's Tiny Friends are among my favorites, and now they have Tiny Holiday Friends! 

To set the scene, I die cut the new Giant Let It Snow out of the center of a Fancy Scalloped Rectangle cut out of Fog cardstock.  Next, I die cut the panel with the new Stitched Snowflake Backdrop and ink blended everything with Lawn Fawn's Forget-Me-Not and Moonstone ink.  I replaced the center with a Moonstone cs Giant Let It Snow die cut, and offset the Fog cs one on top of it.

I chose to use just the snowman from this cute set, and stamped him out many times.  All the friends are so fun to tuck into the little nooks and crannies of the Giant Let It Snow!
