Good morning stamperooneys!:-)

I hope you are having a beautiful day!

In a recent stamp splurge, i bought the Loveable legends stamp set from Lawn Fawn. I have had my eye on it for a while, mostly because of the cute Loch Ness Monster image in there. Seeing as my hubby is Scottish, it seemed like it would be a good investment for my stamp stash! Plus he is super cute!

Today’s card features this awesome image, mixed with some die cutting,inking, copic colouring, heat embossing and a little vellum too. I love that it turned out quite simple, but effective.

Watch the video at the end of this post to see how i made the card – it was fun, and rather a quick one (by my standards anyway!).

In other news, have you seen the new lawn fawn release? OH MY! I am simply in LOVE with the ‘Jump for joy’ set – I have pre-ordered it already! Autumn is my fave so i couldn’t resist! Check out the new release over on the Lawn Fawn blog.

Back to today’s card… to create a little scene, i mixed nessie with some other stamps in the lawn fawn range – the stone from Mermaid for you, and the presents from Toboggan Together. I think it helps build a little story! and I love that all the lawn fawn stamps have a similar style which allows them to be mixed and matched easily!

To colour in the stamped images I used my copic markers. I think it gives Nessie a lovely texture, and I like the way it blends from a dark green to a lighter green.

One of my favourite things about this card is the way that the vellum looks like water, and that you can see Nessie’s flippers through the waves. I think it gives a cool effect! Don’t you?

Oh, almost forgot! To finish off the card, I added one more Lawn Fawn stamped image – the party hat from the Monster Mash stamp set. After all, what’s a party without a party hat?

Have a great weekend my crafty friends!

Hey everyone,

I have another Honey Bee Stamps card to share today, and SURPRISE …bonus video week! i don’t normally do more than one video in a week, but I had some extra time so I decided to treat you all!

I’m sure you will know that i love to mix and match my stamps. I find it really fun! But i also really enjoy looking at my stamps, and coming up with new and interesting ways to use them. Often I can be caught inspecting my stamp sets, and rotating them round and round, squinting that them, and before too long… EUREKA… inspiration strikes!

I had one of these Eureka moments when I got my Special Delivery Stamp set from Honey Bee Stamps. This set has a mix of sentiments and images, and one image was a paperclip. I had the idea to use the paperclip as petals for a flower!

This was a go-with-the-flow kinda card, and I used a piece of patterned paper from my stash, and then the rest of the card design I had to fit around that. It was fun!

I reached for my overflowing and now-hardly-ever-used stash of bakers twine to add a little tactile fun to the card. :-) To add a finishing touch, I die cut a tag and embossed the ‘with love’ greeting which is also from the Special Delivery stamp set.

have a great week, but let me leave you with the video tutorial where you will see how i made this card in a bit more detail.

have a crafty day!

Hellllllllllo Hello!

Its sunday! and that means its time for another Hungry Heffy Crafts video, and today I am sharing a peekaboo card.

I’m not actually sure if that is a real term, i kinda made it up :-) , but i think it works!

I’ve used some landscape dies to cut a section out of card, which creates a fun wave aperture. I thought it would be funny to create a seaside themed card to coordinate with this wave section on the card, so i pulled out some of my trusty Lawn Fawn stamps.

I have used the Year 6 ‘Shellfish’ stamp set, along with the ‘Mermaid for you’ and ‘critters of the sea’ stamps sets. The stamped images have been coloured using copics and the background made using some distress ink.

To create a focal point for the card, I added a little die cut tag on top, and built an underwater scene featuring the little oyster clam shell image. It sure is a cute one!

I love the stark white against the vibrant colours. It makes my heart sing! fa-la-la-la-la!!

As always, you will find more details in the video tutorial…check it out!

:-)

Have a happy weekend!

Happy Birthday, You Party Animal!

by Lesley Oman on 3 July, 2016

Happy Sunday Crafty Friends!

Lawn Fawn critters are my favourite kind of critters! But you probably know that already, because I use them in my cards so much!

I figured that in the alternative universe where Lawn Fawn critters live, they would totally all go to a party together :-)! So I have turned my imagination into a reality in this card!

I mixed a little stamping with watercolouring to get the soft coloured feel for this card. I used dye ink for the ink blending this time (normally I am ALL about the distress inks! )

For the background, I used the Lawn fawn Large stitched rectangle & Simple stitched borders dies, mixed with the mama elephant All Prettied Up die. I added a little colour to the background using some small star stamps. Cute!!

For the greeting, I pulled out the Lawn Fawn Big script greetings stamp set, and mixed this with the Party Animal Stamp set from Avery Elle – they worked perfectly together for this card!

I couldn’t resist adding a little glaze pen to the eyes of the critters, and i also added a few drops with glossy accents.

Please take a look at the video to see the whole process!

Have a wonderful day and be sure to visit me over on the Honey Bee Stamps blog tomorrow if you get a chance!

Ciao!
Lesley
