Blue Skies

Saturday morning I took a fabulous class with Nancy Krueger at Stamp Fever, my local stamp shop. This was a great opportunity to get my mitts on some of the new Lawn Fawn stamps and dies. Some of them seem to have followed me home. Hmmm, wonder how that happened?

This card is based on one we made in the class. I made two versions so I could play around with a few color combinations.

The paper piecing gives the balloons a great 3D effect which really adds to the card. I built the paper pieced version on top of a cutout of the balloons, then popped them up on foam adhesive to add more texture and depth.

I’m still fairly new to the world of photopolymer (clear) stamps, but this is one of the main reasons I’m totally hooked on them – you can bend the stamps! Here I took my sentiment and curved it around the edge of the balloon. I think it just adds an extra little pop to the scene.¬†Rounding the corners keeps the curvy theme going throughout the card.

I’m not sure which version I like more – paper pieced or copic colored.

Who’s Hungry?

Yes, I am STILL obsessed with Lawn Fawn stamps. I picked up these cuties at my local stamp store (Stamp Fever in Orange) when I was there to take a class on Saturday. Who can resist a stamp set that includes bacon?!

The faces on the little flying toasts slay me! I have so many ideas on what to do with these images.

The toaster and the pieces of toast are popped up on foam adhesive to give an otherwise simple card some dimension and texture.

One Set, Four Cards

Let’s just say I reacted rather gleefully when I spotted this stamp set in my local scrapbook shop, Perfect Day Scrapbooking in Huntington Beach. I may have squealed, done a happy dance, and shouted “I NEED THIS!” It is rare that I love every single stamp in a set, so this was absolutely a must buy. Critters Ever After from Lawn Fawn.

Over the last two days I’ve made four cards with these, and I have a feeling a lot more will be coming. These photos were all taken with my iPhone, so I apologize for the poor image quality.

I stamped the smaller images from the set with Versamark, then embossed them with clear, glittery embossing powder. The heart outline is made with shimmer paper, and there are stickles on the Unicorn’s horn and hooves.

Unicorn3

 

I love unicorns (obviously) so I can’t stop mixing them with hearts. On this one, before adhering the heart down I placed it on my acrylic block and then bent the sentiment around to follow the curve of the heart.
