Making a Card : Sealed with a Kiss | Lawn Fawn

Hello Friends!!  Today I am sharing this card using the Lawn Fawn mini set, Sealed with a kiss!  This set was a Black Friday promotion only, but I am sure at a later date, LF will release this set for all to enjoy!!

I did a bit of shadowing on these two adorable seals with my C3 Copic marker and added some dot detail to really bring the seals to life.

I also used some more of the Simple Stories Winter Wonderland papers.

I love the detail to the cheeks of that right seal!!  So cute!!  You could easily use a blush colored marker to add this, but it is fun to stamp it as well!!  

To see how I put this one together - I have the video below!  And, as always the supplies are listed below as well!  Have a great day!

3 CARDS | 1 6x6 PAPER PAD | Winter Wonderland by Simple Stories

Hey all!  I'm here to share with you that I am kicking off a new series on my #youtube channel called 3 CARDS 1 6x6 PAPER PAD.  I will feature a different 6x6 paper pad, and make three different cards with that same pad.  I wanted to do this series to use my pattern papers more, but also give ideas on how to use up those dreaded scraps we all have!

I won't be doing this as a back to back series, but more rather a once or twice a month thing on my channel.

For this set of cards I feature Simple Stories Winter Wonderland.  I love these papers and the color combination.  I also love the fact that they incorporate smaller patterns to create tags, and elements you could use on your cards as a sentiment and focal panel without having to use stamps if you didn't want to.

I show you how to do this very thing on Card #1 in this video!

For all the details on how I put these cards together, I invite you to watch the video!  All the supplies are listed below :)

Thanks for stopping by!!  See you soon!!

UNBOXING | SSS FEB 2017 Card Kit PLUS CARD Tutorial

Hi friends! Today, I wanted to share the unboxing of the Feb. 2017 Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp, as well as show a tutorial using this kit.  As I am writing this post up, the kit itself is sold out, but I have listed and linked the individual items and you are still able to get them outside of the kit.

I wanted to incorporate as many of these adorable pattern papers from doodlebug on my card with out it looking too busy.  And, I love the color scheme!  For my coffee cups, I heat embossed them with some brass embossing powder from Hero Arts, and paper pieced the middle of the cups for a fun look.  

For my sentiment, I usually don't like to stamp directly onto pattern paper, but with the help of my MISTI stamping tool, the ability to stamp this 3 times created that bold black sentiment I needed for it to stand out.  

So, below I  have the unboxing showcasing the contents of the box, and then onto the making of this card!  Thank you all for stopping in today!!  See you soon!
