Happy Papa’s Day, for Lawnfawnatics challenge 30

        This is a card that my daughter helped with. She did color the sprinkles and also helped with the sentiment and colors to be used. Making this card did help her get off of the tablet and be entertained. Three things were accomplished; the tablet was put down, a card was made and my daughter was not bored.

Here is a card that I made with some of the same Lawn Fawn dies.

Have a great Father’s Day with your family!

Father’s Day card for Lawnfawnatics challenge 30

    I love the toadally awesome Lawn Fawn set with the toads and the bayou backdrop goes perfect with it. I used alcohol inks for the background and embossing powder on the frame while adding Nuvo ivory seashell drops to some of the leaves. The flying toad was dressed in a hat and glasses from impression obsessions. This card was a lot of fun, definitely not clean and simple.

Have a great father’s Day!

Lawn Fawnatics #29

Lawn Fawnatics Challenge # 29

Above is a link to the inspiration board that I used for this challenge.



    This is my first go at making a magic slider card and I think it has been a year since I have even made a card. I had been busy whith school and the crafting had to be put on hold.

    For my centerpiece I used the  magic slider dies made by Lawn Fawn. This made the process of putting everything together much more easy. Making an interactive card makes crafting much more exciting.

Traditional watercolor practice

    This is a painting that I did during the watercolor for card makers class: exploring mediums. I used Purple Onion Design stamps which were designed by Stacey Yacula. I just love these stamps. I used Gansai Tambi watercolor cakes. I still want to add some darker color into the painting, but it turned out okay. I am learning watercolor so this is just the beginning.

Enjoy the snowy scene.  :)

Practice is essential and is the key to Perfection.

    Today I am reviewing the online card class that I am taking. Watercolor for card makers: exploring mediums. It's nice to take a class just to review what you might already know. I think it gives the artist some things to practice on. This is actually the first online class that I have taken. To be honest I was a little disappointed at first, I had thought that the class was too easy and that there was nothing for me to learn from it. As I started following the videos and joining in on the lessons it became a fun way to practice my watercolor skills.

Today I worked with my watercolor Derwent Inktense pencils. This is just a quick practice painting that I did.

Quick and easy, not any masterpiece :)
Practice makes perfect.

    My thought is that if anyone is struggling out there with there Art skills, like I am, is to just practice and have fun. Thanks for reading.

Happy Harvest

Its been a few days since I submitted my card and I just found out that I won an honorable gnome, yay!!!!!

    It is a tradition to celebrate the Harvest of crops this time of year. I want to share a card that I was very happy to make, this stamp set is just so much fun!!!

The stamp set I used is made by Lawn Fawn and the name of it is Happy Harvest. I started out by stamping the scarecrow and birds and than I did a lot of masking. I colored the image in using copic markers and I added some Wink of Stella for a touch of glitter. For the sky I used distress ink. To add texture I used candy corn twine from Lawn Fawn. I also added a leaf using Lawn Fawn's small stitched leafs and I dye cut it using paper from Doodlebug Designs. I did add Wink of Stella to the leaf and glossy accents for texture.

I choose to add the sentiment on the inside of the card with a wheelbarrow of pumpkins. How cute.  I will be entering my card into the Lawnscaping Challenge, for more information follow the link at the bottom of my page. Thanks for stopping by, and Happy Harvest month!!!!!:)
