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.

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.

I love watercoloring with dye re-inkers. Just a drop of ink, a watercolor brush (with water in the barrel for maximum laziness!), and some paper. Super fast, easy, and tons of fun. Looking at these photos again makes me want to go watercolor something right now.

We all know I love me some kitties so there was no way I could resist this adorable cat image from Simon Says Stamp. When I stamped them I was so sad to see the tips of their ears missing, but their customer service was great. I emailed them about the missing ears and a new set was in the mail to me an hour later. Missing ear tips or not, this card is adorable.

As soon as I saw these kitties I was dying to break out the watercolors! The cats are embossed in black, then I used a variety of SU dye inks and a watercolor brush to fill them in. I added some grey around the cats to give them some depth, then framed them with hearts. The sentiment fits the image so perfectly, and embossing it in white really helps it pop against the Seattle background.
