Critters

I can't get enough of critters, especially Lawn Fawn critters, so I made a card for the current Lawnscaping Challenge.


I combined a lot of stamp sets to create this little scene:


The hedgehog is from the new "sending hedgehugs" set, her little bow is from "beep boop birthday", the squirrel and the grass from "critters in the burbs", the branch and the leaves from "love you s'more", the balloon from "year four" and the happy from "winter penguin". I colored everything with Distress Inks. Let me know if you have any questions!
Thanks for visiting!

Another Paper Smooches Card

Hello! I am back with another Paper Smooches card I made as their Guest Designer for September.



I used the Christmas Words 2 Dies. First I die-cut the holly and the berries from cardstock and inked them with Distress Inks and an ink blending tool, then I arranged them onto a card base with a woodgrain-embossed cardstock panel. The sentiment was die-cut from white glitter cardstock
and adhered with tiny foam tape squares. To finish the card off, I added white sequins. Here is a close-up:


Oh, and I forgot to share a little gift packaging I had on the Paper Smooches blog last week:


For this one, I used the Stitched Frames Dies, the Tag Stitched Dies and the Just for you stamp set. A perfectly cute set for gift giving! I hope you like what you see!
Thanks for visiting!

Cute Hedgehog

I love the cute hedgehog from Lawn Fawn's "sending hedgehugs" set and couldn't wait to play with the set. So instead of working on more cards for the current PC submission call, I made a card for the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge last night. This week the challenge is "Create Your Own Background". Fun!


Here is the card:


To create my background, I masked the edges of my panel with painter's tape (and temporarily adhered it this way), and added splatters of ink. I used various Distress Inks with water, as well as gold Gelato with water and dried the splatters with my heat-embossing tool before adding the next color. Finally, I applied some ink with an ink-blending tool. The tag was die-cut from patterned paper from the "sweater weather" paper pad. I colored the hedgehog with Distress Inks and water. The speech bubble is from the "into the woods" set. I hope you like it!
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful day!
