Joy Clair blog hop- New baby


Today the new release from Joy Clair is out and I am here to share the new set called New Baby. This set is so cute (I love the onsie) and came at a great time! There a few ladies I know expecting in a few months, so this set will get used! 


I started by trimming down some cardstock to fit my 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base. Using my score board I scored lines at a diagonal an inch apart. Turned the panel and repeat the scoring to create a blanket look. After the scoring was done I stamped the hearts in the diamonds and adhered the panel to the card base.


For the onsie I stamped it on some pattern paper, used some copics to darken some areas for depth and fussy cut the image. I then stamped my sentiment on scrap cardstock and trimmed it down, before layering it with a scrap of the pattern paper. 


I used foam tape to adhere the onsie and sentiment strip to the front of the card. Stamped some more hearts and another sentiment to inside the card before calling it done. Then I made a coordinating envelope by stamping the onsie on the front.


I'm so excited to be apart of the blog hop and team! Make sure to check out what my teammates have made to share the release with you! Here is another look at the set New Baby...

ATSM- #274 You're so charming




More exciting news from me today... I'm now apart of the Addicted to Stamps and More DT!!! I always have loved a good challenge to help jump start my inspiration. Today we are challenging you to create a clean and simple project, one of my favorite styles! Stop by the Challenge blog to see more inspiration and play along with the challenge!


For my first card used this adorable dragon and matching die ( that my hubby bought me for Christmas). I stamped the image on a scrap piece of cardstock and did a second generation stamp on the cardbase, before cleaning the stamp off and stamped the sentiment. Then I used some distress inks on the card base to add color over the stamped image. 


After I die cut my dragon and added coordinating color using copics I popped him on the card using foam adhesive.

Pine For You

I'm here to day to share a card I made for the Lawn Fawntics challenge. The challenge is to use your oldest Lawn Fawn set. I have a few since I grabbed more than one as soon as I could! For this card I chose to use my first critter set.


I used post its to mask areas as I stamped my little scene. My son says this is how he imagines a forest looking. ;-) He loves the critters too. After everything was stamped, I colored the scene with copics. I added just a bit of detail with a white gel pen and used some Nuvo drops in gloss white on the mushrooms.


I plan using this card for my husband as an anniversary card (we celebrate 12 years on the 19th!), I just hope he likes it as much as our 11 year old does.
