Merry Mice with Lawn Fawn and Chibitronics

Hi friends! Lawn Fawn has a fun surprise for you all today! They have teamed up with Chibitronics to bring you this adorable, exclusive stamp set and card making kit! The kit includes a medium sized stamp set, coordinating dies, lights, template, and easy-to-follow instructions. The kit is available at Lawn Fawn and the Chibitronic stores while supplies last!


I created an outdoor scene for the mice to decorate their Christmas tree. The images are all stamped onto white cardstock with Jet Black ink and colored with Copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut out the images and to add the hole in the star for the light. Then, I used white embossing powder for part of the sentiment and Finley's ABCs dies for the "mice" all with black cardstock. The "mice" letters were coated with the LF glitter pen for some extra sparkle.


The background was created by heat embossing the snow from the Snowy Backdrops stamp set. Then, I ink blended the background with Peacock and Blue Jay ink. I created a snowy hillside with the Stitched Hillside Borders die from white cardstock, and I also created a frame by cutting out the tree from the Leafy Tree Backdrop die. Once the scene was created, I lined up the front panel with a white card base and used a pencil to mark where the light needed to go. I created a simple circuit with the Chibitronics kit, placed the battery to make sure that the circuit worked, and then added two layers of foam tape around the battery and all over the card base. Then, I attached the front panel to the base! It's so satisfying to push that little present and see the star light up!


Here's a closer look at the card with the star lit up. My daughter had a lot of fun being a hand model for me, haha! I also think she might try to sneak this card to keep in her room and play with at night!


Thanks so much for stopping by! Check out the Lawn Fawn blog for more inspiration using this stamp set and card kit, and don't forget to order the kit at the Lawn Fawn store before supplies run out! Have a great day! :)

Hello Adventure with Spellbinders

Hi friends! I hope you all had a great week! Do you have any fun plans for this weekend? We are getting ready for a charity trivia night! I doubt we'll win, but we're looking forward to fun evening together with friends.

I have a card to share with you today that features the Adventure Time Snapshot Etched Dies from Spellbinders. These dies are part of the Scenic Snapshots Collection.


I used a bunch of Lawn Fawn cardstock to create this card including Noble Fir, Blue Jay, Narwhal, Chocolate Bar, and Pixie Dust sparkle cardstock for the snow capped mountains. The sky is spritzed with some Liquid Stardust and the grass has flecks of black ink. To add some extra dimension, I added the pine trees to the scene with foam tape. Here's a closer look at the scene:


I hope this inspires you to create some fun adventure cards! My sons favorite part is that little campfire and I really like those tiny stars.

Thanks so much for visiting and I hope you have a great weekend! :)

Mighty Hands Inspiration Week - Kings and Priests and Handwritten Alpha

Hi friends! It's the last day of the Mighty Hands Inspiration Week! I have a sweet card to share with you today that uses the new Kings and Priests and Handwritten Alpha stamp sets!


The images in the Kings and Priests set is so cute. My daughter really likes the princess image, so I figured it was the perfect image to use for her birthday card! I created the scene by using a cloud stencil to ink blend the sky and added the grass by die cutting cardstock with the Simple Grassy Hillsides by Lawn Fawn. I added the princess in the middle with foam tape, and I also added the dove from the Peace Words set, a few grass pieces from the Bold As A Lion stamp set, and a few small hearts stamped in pink ink.

The white frame around the scene is from Lawn Fawn's Foursquare Backdrop die - I created it by cutting out the inside frame! I used the Handwritten Alpha set to stamp my daughter's name along the bottom and I added a sentiment from the You Words stamp set. This turned out so sweet and my daughter loves her card!

Thanks so much for visiting today and I hope you have a great evening! :)

The images are all stamped with black ink, colored with Copic markers, and attached with foam tape. I stamped a few leaves and hearts in the background, as well as the sentiment. I finished the card by adding a white frame around the scene and adding a few leaves along the top. Here's another look of the card to show the dimension:

Mighty Hands Inspiration Week - Good Gift and Peace Words

Hello again! I have two cards to share with you today that feature products from the new Mighty Hands release!

My first card features the new Good Gift stamp set. This set is so cute and it would be perfect to create a new baby card!


To create my card, I started by using a cloud stencil and ink blending a light blue cloudy sky. I used Lawn Fawn's Rose Gold embossing powder to heat emboss the sentiment in the lower left corner. I stamped the child and balloon onto white cardstock, colored the image with Copic markers, and fussy cut the image out. I attached the image with foam tape, and them stamped a few birds in the sky. I also stamped a few small hearts in pink ink from a Lawn Fawn stamp set that I had in my stash.

My second card showcases the Peace Words stamp set. I like the big, scripty "peace" and how it can work with the smaller sentiments included in the set.


I started with a piece of purple paper from Lawn Fawn's Watercolor Wishes paper pack and die cut it with the Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Frames die.  I kept the frame with the dark side up, but I flipped the inside rectangle over so that the lighter paper was inside the frame. Then, I stamped the "peace" in purple ink, and white heat embossed the rest of the sentiment on black cardstock. I attached the black cardstock and the dove with foam tape, and I also used foam tape to pop up the frame. This would be so cute to recreate in a variety of colors!

Mighty Hands Inspiration Week - Children of God

Hi friends! I'm back again today with another card to share featuring products from the new Mighty Hands release! Today, I am sharing a card that uses the Children of God stamp set.


Our faith in Jesus makes us all children of God! To create this card, I started by stamping the children in black ink, coloring them with Copic markers, and cutting out the images. The background was created by adhering a piece of Purple Posies patterned paper from Lawn Fawn to a white card base. I cut a panel from white cardstock with the Outside In Stitched Rectangle die and taped that to the patterned paper. Then, I stamped the sentiment in black ink, attached the children with foam tape, and glued a few sequins to fill in the white space. How cute are those children?!

Fall Birds with Hello Bluebird

Hi everyone! I hope that you're all having a great day so far. I have a card to share with you that features a few products from Hello Bluebird!


Hello Bluebird hosts a monthly challenge on Instagram, and the challenge this month was to create a card showing what we love about fall! My favorite part about fall is the beautiful leaves and cooler weather. I decided to use the Silly Birds stamp set to create my fall card. I love how versatile this set is - it can be used to create any season of card!


I stamped the birds in black ink and colored them with Copic markers in shades of brown. I used reds, oranges, and browns for the leaves and I also added a few pink hearts. The background is created by ink blended with distress oxide inks - Fossilized Amber, Worn Lipstick, and Wild Honey. I also flicked some black ink to the background for some extra detail. The sentiment is die cut with the Hello Friend Words die in gold sparkle cardstock and the hello from the Silly Birds set is white heat embossed onto black cardstock.


I really like how this card turned out and I can't wait to send it to a friend this fall! Thanks so much for visiting and I hope you all have a great week! :)
