Rainbows and Cuteness!

Happy Day to you! I just wanted to pop in and share a stash of cards I made a couple of weeks ago… they make me smile and I hope they brighten your day too!

Isn’t this little Lawn Fawn Rainbow just the sweetest little ditty?! It’s called: Rain or Shine Before and Afters.I always love the smiling faces! The background paper is Lawn Fawn’s Really Rainbow Scallop. Love it!

Then I colored another Lawn Fawn rainbow and colored him in too. 🙂

For this one, I stenciled on some clouds for the background. The little background scallop is Lawn Fawn’s.

And lastly, I had to commit this cutie Doodlebug sticker to a card. I wanted to hoard it, like we crafters do, but it just wanted to be on a card. 🙂 I likely won’t mail this one, but that’s neither here nor there now, right? 😉

It is a smiling typewriter with smiling paper!!! This makes me so happy! 🙂

The stenciled background I made with Altenew’s Halftone stencil.

Thanks for stopping by! Come by tomorrow for a special blog post and VIDEO!! What? I know 🙂

Take care– Jill 🙂

The Best Ever!

Happy Wednesday!

I’ve have had this little Lawn Fawn Caramel Apple and die for so long and finally got around to stamping them! 🙂

Adorable! I colored them with Copics, die cut them out and then stamped the sentiment from the Reveal Wheel Sentiments after scoring the card base under the circle. To finish this off, I added some stitching, some Stickles and a little hemp twine. 🙂

Gah, I can’t take them with the googley eyes! 🙂

The current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge is all about bling and sparkle–check it out HERE. Check it out:

Swinging by to Say…

Sometimes you just need to Monkey around, right?! 🙂

The current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge is a Color Challenge and I wanted to join in the fun! Check it out HERE: So I made this cute little monkey card. I have been loving the retro vibe lately, so I went with that. 🙂 You just gotta love the 70’s and 80’s! 🙂

I colored the cute monkey from the Lawn Fawn/Ellen Hutson set  Love Ya Bunches (limited time set) with Copic markers. I made strips from scrap cardstock and then used an Avery Elle frame to cut it all out. I adhered all the bit down with foam tape. To polish it off, I scored the card base and added some stitching. Fun!

The sentiment Hang in There is from this Lawn Fawn set  Slow Down and Enjoy! I stamped that a little too close to the Swinging by bit, but…. well at that point, I had to run with it! 😉

Such a fun and sweet encouragement card to send! Loving these challenge colors! 🙂

Have a great and safe Fourth of July!!

Take care– Jill 🙂

Believe in Yourself!

There is a fun challenge over at Lawn Fawnatics–an inspiration board! I love this summery feel. 🙂

You can check it out HERE.

When I saw this board, I kept thinking summer break!! I thought of our son and I wanted to make him a card to go along with all his end of the school year treat and summer books. Ha!!!

Anywho, I started out making this in the vein of a summery, bright background. Then, unbeknownst to me, I ended up with this galactic goodness. Ha!! So the result is a far stretch from the inspiration board, but this is where it took me. 🙂

You’re a Star! tooooooo cute! 🙂

For this card, I used Lawn Fawn’s stamps: Beam Me Up and the coordinating dies.  I colored everything with Copic Markers. I created the background loosely with Distress Oxide inks and water, letting it spill over the masked lines. At first I thought I’d toss the background, but then I was down with the blobs, so I finished it all off with some stitching and adhering all with foam tape. 😉

I’m sure he’ll think these little guys are too fun! 🙂

Be sure to check out the challenge and join in HERE! Fun fun!

Have a great rest of the week!

Take care– Jill 🙂

Welcome!

Happy Monday! Hope your week is going well, thus far! Just popping in with a fun little card to send and welcome a new little pup!

awwwww! Love this stamp from Avery Elle Happy Howl-idays, and the letters I arranged using Lawn Fawn’s Harold’s ABC’s. I watercolored this little Frenchie with Clean Color Zig Markers and added some Pretty Pink Posh confetti sequins. 

I hope Chewie enjoyed his card. ❤

Well, that is all for now! See you back here later this week! 🙂

Take care– Jill 🙂

Sending Big Thanks!

The current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 28 is a Sketch Challenge–check it out HERE. I am all about sketches and I have been making a lot of cards recently based on them. It does take the guess-work out of arranging things!

Today, my Mother’s Day gift was daytime crafting. This happens once a year, if that. So I took full advantage…after I ran the vacuum and cleaned a bathroom, of course. I was not supposed to do any of that today, but it was bugging me, so I did. Ha!!. 😉

Here’s the sketch:

And here is my cutie little card! How sweet is this elephant and chick? Gah! 🙂

I colored these little ditties with Copic Markers and die cut them out. I scored the card base and then put on a scalloped circle pieces. I added some stitching to the focal point and heat embossed the sentiment. I adhered all the elements on with foam tape to polish off this sweet lil’ card. 🙂

These stamps are Lawn Fawn: Elfie Selfie stamps and coordinating dies. Such sweet little images to make cards with. 🙂

Be sure to check out the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge and join in HERE! Fun fun!

Have a great week!

Take care– Jill 🙂
