Stamp Out Cancer Blog Hop

No photo description available.

Welcome to Scrap'n Stamp's hop to Stamp Out Cancer.
In lieu of prizes for this hop, Scrap'n Stamp will donate 10% from all the sales made this weekend - June 8th and 9th - to Push For Your Tush Fundraising Walk for Colon Cancer Canada in honor of team member Nancy Barnett Elrick. 

You can read more about Nancy's story HERE and if you would like to donate to the Push For Your Tush Fundraising Walk For Colon Cancer Canada you can do that HERE.

 Here is my first card.  I love Lawn Fawn so I used their patterned paper (Spiffy Speckles and an old rainbow pattern).  Next I imprinted the Outside In Lawn Fawn Stitched Star Stackables.  I used my Cuttlebug with a metal shim and a rubber mat to accomplish this.  The stars are cut from various Lawn Fawn die sets (Tiny Gift Box and Say What? Tags) the sentiment is die cut from Lawn Fawn's Quinn's ABCs out of craft foam.

Below is my second card.  This may seem like a strange card for a cancer blog hop; however, making the most of conditions is one of the best things to do in any horrible situation.  And yes, I speak from experience.

I made this card with left over alcohol ink scraps,  Lawn Fawn's Smitty's ABCs and a dollar store wood chip.  

Be sure to check out all the stops on the hop.

Next stop Sandi!

On Point

To create this simple card stamp the MFT cacti and sentiment with Lawn Fawn's Smitty's ABCs.
 Colour the cacti with pencil crayons and then colour over with felt marker for added depth and brighter colour.
 Die cut the bow from Lawn Fawn's Tiny Gift Box die. Assemble as shown.
 Inspiration can hit at any time. I was inspired by an ad I saw for this card.

Lace Challenge at the Southern Girl's Challenge Blog

Hello pepps!  Here for the Southern Girl's Challenge Blog.  Check out the challenge (really!).  They have excellent prizes and you can play worldwide!!  To make this card, take any background stamp, add distress ink and spritz.  Then stamp on good quality watercolour paper.  I like Strathmore best.

Asian Lawn Fawn Card

Hi Peeps! I'm up on the Scrap 'N Stamp Canada blog with a new alcohol ink technique for you!


 Die cut a stitched rectangle out of Yupo Paper. Add an alcohol ink rainbow and let dry. Dry emboss with an Darice Embossing Folder. Sand raised areas for added dimension and interest. Adhere to an A2 card front. 

 Stamp out Lawn Fawn images. Colour Lawn Fawn unicorn from the Say What? Christmas Critters stamp set with an alcohol based marker. Stamp pink bubble heart with Hero Arts Bubblegum Pink Ink. 

 Die cut stars and hearts from Lawn Fawn's Say What Gift Tags also die cut a Lawn Fawn Fancy Wavy Banner and stamp the word "smile" on the banner end from Lawn Fawn's Year Three stamp set.

 Assemble card as shown popping up the sentiment and critters with foam tape.

 Please note that this alcohol ink panel was a complete failure until I embossed and sanded it... keep those "failures" they may be anything but.

Floral Frenzy Scrap N Stamp Blog Hop

Welcome to another blog hop at Scrap N Stamp!  


First I used a piece of yupo paper with alcohol inks.  I used Gold, Sunshine Yellow, Sailboat Blue and Clover alcohol inks.  I then stamp a small flower numerous times with Lawn Fawn's Flutter By stamp set and coloured it with alcohol based markers.  I stamped the sentiment "let's party" from Lawn Fawn's Party Animal stamp set on a die cut from Lawn Fawn's Fancy Wavy Banners.

I adhered the yupo panel with dry adhesive to an A2 card front.  Then I added the other elements.  Please note that the banner and some of the flowers double up.  In other words there are two banners with foam squares in between.  The same goes for the flowers. 

Inside I added more flowers from Lawn Fawn's Flutter By stamp set.

Scrap N Stamp has a prize of a $50.00 gift card, so be sure to leave a comment on each designer's blog as you go through the hop.

I used Lawn Fawn's Toadally Awesome stamp set, Spiffy Speckles paper and Let's Toast Pull Tab Add-On.  Lawn Fawn has a great how to video for the Pull Tab.  You can find it here.

As you can see my Mother has three children.  (I have the misfortune of having two brothers!)  :)

Sugar Pea Spring Card

Hello!  Back with a Sugar Pea card.  I used an old Sugar Pea stamp set for this card, a Crafter's Workshop stencil, an SSS rectangle die and Studio Katia gems. 

To get the ink background effect, first ink the panel in three colours as shown and then lay over the stencil and ink the same colours again.

Crayola Watercolor Card with Lawn Fawn Stamps and Dies

Hi Pepps!  Here with a super easy/cheaper card for you today over at the Scrap N Stamp blog.  This card is made by using Crayola markers as watercolour markers!


Take a panel of watercolour paper and draw on it with Crayola markers.  Add water with a paintbrush (I used an old acrylic paint brush) to blend.  Let dry.
Stamp berries, leaves and butterflies with Lawn Fawn's Flutter By stamp set.  Fill in set areas with black pen.
Adhere watercolour panel to card front with dry adhesive.  Add sentiment from Lawn Fawn's Flutter By stamp set to Lawn Fawn Fancy Wavy Banner by heat setting white embossing powder.  Add Lawn Fawn Fancy Wavy Banner to card front with foam adhesive and cut off extra Lawn Fawn Fancy Wavy Banner extending over the side of the card.
You can also use Distress Markers for this technique.  Distress Markers must be stored on their sides (it doesn't matter how you store Crayolas).  The advantage with Distress is that their colours are more sophisticated.  (Although I like the black Crayola better myself!)  You can also colour with Crayolas right onto the Ranger Craft mat or an old plate, add water, and wohoo you have watercolour!
