Many Thanks

Hello friends! 

Angel here to share a card I made with one of the brand new Lawn Fawn sets, Happy Harvest. It seriously may be one of my absolute favorites!! I love every image and sentiment in the set. 

For my card, I wanted to go simple and focus on one of the images and chose the adorable wagon with the three pumpkins. 


I used two patterned papers from the new 6x6 Let's Polka in the Dark paper pad. The colors are amazing! I stamped the image with Memento Jet Black ink and colored it with Copic markers. I colored the pumpkins with my Wink of Stella clear glitter pen and used Glossy Accents on the wagon. I hate that you can't really see it in the pictures. 


The patterned paper and white card stock were die cut using Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangle Dies. I finished the card using a few Sparkling Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. 


I love the simplicity of the card. I'm trying to embrace the saying "less is more" in my card making these days. It's not easy for me but so far the cards are turning out way cute!! 

Hope you were inspired and enjoyed the card I created for you today. You can find all of the products used in the Lawn Fawn online store here

Thanks for stopping by today!! Have a great day!

Alpaca Masked Shaker!

Morning friends!!  Jessica here with my first post as part of the Lawnscaping Facebook Inspiration Team and I am so thrilled to be here!  Lawn Fawn was the very first stamp company I discovered online two years ago and every release I fall in love with all of the cute critters and sentiments!!

And this new release is no different...the Winter Alpaca stamp set is adorable!  I knew I wanted to use him for this post!  I decided to combine him with the new Ready, Set, Snow shaker add-on die for a holiday shaker card!

Here's the front of the card:

And here's the inside:
I thought it would be fun to make it seem like he put on a scarf when you open the card!  I created the background by watercoloring distress inks in chipped sapphire, evergreen bough, salty ocean, and tumbled glass onto the background.  I added several layers of color to get a darker background.  I dried it with my heat gun and then added a layer of watered down iridescent medium for a little shimmer and then finished it with paintbrush flicks of picket fence distress ink.  It created a really shimmery, sparkly winter sky!  The alpacas were colored with copic markers and I added a little more iridescent medium to his scarf so it would sparkle when it caught the light!
I assembled the shaker and filled it with sparkling clear sequins and lots of white and clear seed beads in various shimmery shades.  When I stamped the alpaca for the front of the card I used post-it tape to cover up his scarf while I was inking the stamp and then I removed the post-it tape prior to stamping so the scarf didn't stamp.  I created a second distress ink background, sealed the back of the shaker, and adhered it to the front of the card.  I stamped and heat-embossed the sentiments from Winter Alpaca and finished the card with a little teal and silver twine!  
Thanks so much for visiting today and I look forward to sharing more Lawn Fawn creations soon!!  Don't forget to check out our first September challenge that starts on Monday and have a fabulous day!
