Punny B-Day Card - Lawnscaping Challenge #86!

Hi there! I know I've been an awful blogger, but the gals over at Lawnscaping Challlenge Blog had a wonderful theme I couldn't refuse! Their most recent challenge (#86) is...WATERCOLORING!! How could I not play?!? I've been LOVING watercolor cards lately, so I was super excited to play along!!
So, do you guys do Pinterest?!? I am in love with the site, personally. No, I don't fill boards with imaginary wedding stuff or clothes I'd love to wear. Mostly I use Pinterest for inspiration. I love finding a "punny" little images that I can incorporate into my cards. So, when I see something like this:
I totally think: THAT COULD BE A CARD!! Immediately I realized I have this awesome Critters Down Under stamp set that I actually won from Lawn Fawn, but haven't actually inked up yet - it was perfect!! Here is my card for the Lawnscaping #86 Challenge:
^ obviously, that is the inside of the card :). As you can see, I changed my sentiment from "koalifications" to "KOALAfications" - seemed necessary :). The alpha set that I used here is Lawn Fawn's Sally's ABCs which is my favorite Lawn Fawn alpha set (that I currently own). I just stamped the image and letters with black archival ink and clear heat embossed it. There you have it, a punny little birthday card! Thanks for peeking! Can't wait to see everyone's creations!

CC2G Feb Kit + Lawn Fawn Stamps = CUTENESS!

Hi again! I'm trying to be a consistent blogger - can you tell?!? Today I wanted to share a fun card I made using this fun Lawn Fawn Owl (that I got for free back in November/December) & the Woodgrain Background along with a few left over scraps of ribbon from the Feb 2014 CC2G Kit
Isn't it too cute. I used My Minds Eye Chalkboard black paper then heat embossed all of the stamped images. It was super simple, but turned out to be one of my favorites! Hope it inspired you today! Heat embossing it so very fun!

Lawnscaping Challenge 51 - with a Non-traditional V-Day card :)

Hi there. Long time so see huh?!? Yes, I've been just really busy and not really making time for my crafty fun :( boo. I know. I did take some time last weekend to make a few cards though - and it was glorious! I missed it. A lot. I wanted to make a few Valentines Day cards - seeing as it's about that time. My son's class is doing something cool where the parents can come in early, before school, on V-Day and decorate their child's desks. Cute idea. Anyway, I made a couple cusie decorations to stick to his desk, but I also wanted to make him a card. This is it:
These are all October Afternoon patterned papers, buttons & twine from PaperTrey Ink, Wooden goodies from Studio Calico, and the the awesome "You make me Smile" stamp is from Lawn Fawn's "Hello Friend" stamp set :) I wanted to enter this into Lawnscapings (#51) V-Day Challenge
I know it's not very traditional, as far as Valentines Day Cards go, but I know it's perfect for this little guy ;)
I was inspired by the reds/browns in the LF inspiration photo. That's all for me today. Hopefully I get to crafting/posting more often. Kinda miss it ;). Have a great day!
