For my cute little Halloween treat box, I used a sheet of paper from the 12 x 12 Knit Picky paper pack. I used the new brown wood grained paper from the Woodgrain Card stock Neutrals pack for the brown hill at the bottom. It was cut out with the Stitched Hillside border dies. I used cute images from the Pick of the Patch, So Owlsome, and Thanks a Latte stamp sets. The black fence is cut out with the Spooky Fence Border die. The sentiment is from the Pick of the Patch stamp set and was cut out using the Everyday Sentiment Banners dies.

Hi there! Welcome to the fourth day of the August Lawn Fawn Sneak Peeks! We are super excited to share with you some cards and projects created with these fun new products! I absolutely love the Fall and Winter Lawn Fawn release and look forward to it so much each year! The new products will be in the store on August 23rd! 

Today I am showcasing the So Owlsome Stamp set, Knit Picky Paper pack, Happy Fall Border die and Reverse Stitched Scalloped Circle Dies.



I used the Reverse Stitched Scalloped Dies to cut a circle out of my white card stock base. I Added the strip of patterned paper along the bottom and glued the Happy Fall border die along the top edge. I blended some lavender ink onto my white card base and mounted the cut out piece over the top of that with foam tape. All of the cute images were colored with Copic markers, cut out with the coordinating dies, and added with foam tape.

Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week: Double Slider Surprise






Hi there! Today is the first day of the August Lawn Fawn Sneak Peeks! We are super excited to share with you some cards and projects created with these fun new products! I absolutely love the Fall and Winter Lawn Fawn release and look forward to it so much each year! The new products will be in the store on August 23rd! 

Today I am showcasing the really fun new Double Slider Surprise interactive card die. This one is sooooo neat! I have to admit I thought it looked rather daunting to put together, but it was super easy, and after the first one, the rest are a piece of cake!



I will not go into detail about how to make the slider. Kelly will have a video available on the Lawn Fawn Youtube channel to show you how to put it all together. I used images from Thanks A Latte, Happy Harvest, and Pick of The Patch for my card front. I also used Patterned paper from the Knit Picky Fall paper pack.




Here is a close up of the front. The little scalloped border along the edge was made with the Scalloped Frame Dies.




And here you can see the surprise when you pull the little white tab down at the bottom. Isn't that cute! There are so many ways you can use this fun interactive die! I can't wait to try more!

Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week: Pick Of The Patch






Hi there! Today is the first day of the August Lawn Fawn Sneak Peeks! We are super excited to share with you some cards and projects created with these fun new products! I absolutely love the Fall and Winter Lawn Fawn release and look forward to it so much each year!

Today I am showcasing the adorable new stamp set and coordinating dies called Pick of The Patch!





I created the background for my card using Distress inks in Blueprint Sketch and Wilted Violet. I also used Distress inks to color the trees from the Stitched Tree Borders. I cut the hills in the background with the Stitched Hillside Borders, then cut the black fence from the new So Spooky Fence Border die. 



All of the cute images were colored with Copic markers. They are all from the Pick of The Patch Stamp set except for the leaves, they are from the Thanks A Latte Stamp set. I adhered the images to my card with foam tape. The sentiment was heat embossed with white embossing powder.

Altenew Watercolor 36 Pan Set Release Blog Hop + Giveaway




Welcome to the Altenew Watercolor Release Blog Hop! I am super excited to be joining Altenew to showcase their brand new 36 color Watercolor set


This beautiful set of 36 vibrant watercolor half-pans coordinates perfectly with our line of ink. They are intensely pigmented, fade minimally when drying, and some colors have lovely granulating effects. They are stored in a convenient plastic case, designed with space for your brush (included) and a palette in the lid for mixing. Some of the case lids snap off upon opening and can easily snap back on after you are finished creating so you can store your mixed paints with the rest of the pan colors.


The set contains
  • 36 Watercolor Half-Pans
  • Plastic Case
  • Water Brush





I was extremely excited to try out this new set of watercolors and I was extremely pleased with the results! One of the things I find discouraging with working with watercolors is that the colors are not as vibrant once they dry. Well, these are! They are just as vibrant and gorgeous after they dry as they are wet!  I'm thrilled with them, and will be pulling them out for most of my watercoloring projects I'm sure!




For my first card, I used the Geometric Flowers stamp set and the Label Love Stamp set. I heat embossed the designs on watercolor paper with white embossing powder, then wet my paper and just laid color down in the different sections with my brush. After this dried, I sprinkled more of the same colors or watercolor around by tapping my brush onto my paper.


For the flower on top, I colored it with Copic markers, cut it out with the coordinating die and adhered it with foam tape.



The sentiment is from the Label Love stamp set. I stamped it with black ink, cut it out and adhered it over the flower with foam tape.


 My next card uses the Bamboo Rose stamp set along with the Label Love stamp set. I stamped all of the flowers onto watercolor paper with waterproof black ink. I then loosely watercolored them in with blues and purples. After they were dry, I splattered them with more of the same colors of watercolor and some white ink. 



 For the background of my card, I just used a large brush and with large strokes pulled watercolor onto my paper from the bottom corner. It's a really quick way to make a fun background. I also speckled it a little with more of the same color watercolor. 


The flowers were die cut out with the coordinating dies and adhered with foam tape. I added a few drops of Nuvo Crystal Drops in white.



For my last card, I used the Peony Scrolls stamp set and again the Label Love stamp set. For the background, I wet my watercolor paper, and loosely  laid down dabs of blue and yellow watercolor. When this was dry, I speckled with more of the same blue watercolor.



 The flowers I stamped on watercolor paper with waterproof black ink, then loosely watercolored them with the pinks, orange and yellow watercolors. The leaves were done the same way using the greens and blues. After they were dry, I speckled them with more of the same colors used to paint them and some white ink as well. 


The flowers were then cut out with the coordinating dies, and along with the sentiment, were adhered with foam tape.


Prizes:
To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to SIX lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and Altenew Scrapbook Blog by 8/15/2018 for a chance to win. Six winners will be announced on the Altenew blogs on 8/19/2018.
