Simon Says 2018 Stamptember + Newton's Nook Release!

eeeeep!
how awesome is the month of Stamptember!? ha ha!
and it just got even MORE awesome with a Newton's Nook collaboration!!! 



I just LOVE this stamp set!! it's SO sweet and perfect for ANY time of the year!

I really LOVE these critters holding the banners - it's so sweet! and I couldn't resist making a foxy card! ha!



I stamped and colored everything with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. then i fussy cut it all out and popped up the image with foam tape!

the background was created with various scraps of yellow cardstock in a diaganol pattern that I die cut out with the Framework die set!



then I used the Cloudy Sky Stencil to add some white embossing paste texture all over the card! I love how it overlaps the 'frame'! 

to finish off the card, I tore one side of the card so a little bit of black and white washi tape peeks through! so FUN!
oh, I also added some tiny, tiny Pretty Pink Posh Sequins for shine!

be sure to head over to the Simon Says Stamp store to pick up this ADORABLE and exclusive stamp and die set! they'll be available *only* until they're gone!! so hurry up!! 

enjoy!


I hope you liked my projects today using this new exclusive set. 
Remember, you can only get this design at Simon Says Stamp while supplies last! 

The whole Newton's Nook Designs Team was also able to play along with this new set!

here's to you!

hello again!

today I have a card up on the Newton's Nook Designs blog! woot!


I used the super cute and fun Cocktail Mixer stamp set and coordinating dies
all of the images were colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and then added some white details with a pen, for funsies! :P


I arranged all of the images onto a light grey cardstock that I had smeared with a little white embossing paste for texture! 
once the glasses were all arranged, I added the sentiment banner and a few white acrylic paint drops! 

hope this card made you smile!

Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #37 - Something Old, Something New

yahooo! it's time for a NEW challenge over at the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge blog!



this challenge was MADE for Lawn Fawn products: something old and something new! and nothing goes together better than Lawn Fawn sets!! it's perfect!



what a FUN, unique and amazing idea for a challenge! I love it!
so I used old, new and everything in between! ha!
here's my card:



looooove it!

I stamped and colored the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and then fussy cut them out! The critters are from the brand new Winter Skies stamp set! and that moon is actually the sun image from Out of This World! ha!
the background was distress ink blended with Wilted Violet, Blueprint Sketch and Peacock Feathers.



then I heat embossed using the Starry Backdrops stamp set to add to the night, winter sky!
I die cut the grass with the Grassy Border die, too! I know I've done waves like this on past cards, but I just couldn't help making another one here! it's SO fun!

but wait, there's more!



I also used the Mini Pop-Up Box die to create a fun element inside!!!
all of the planets were chilly-willy (it's Christmas!), so I gave them all scarves and hats from the various sets:






I seriously LOVE the continuation of the sentiment inside...it's perfect for my parents, since my mom always says she's loves my little Menn to Pluto and back!! 

oh, i really can't WAIT for you to play along! you could win a $25 gift certificate to Lawn Fawn!!!!
enjoy!
