Day 5: One Layer Cards

This one uses Lawn Fawn’s Life Is Good stamp and die set. Since I live in Florida, this is more pertinent than snow. We actually use our old snow brushes to brush sand off our feet after a day at the beach!

Next up is a card utilizing masking techniques. Stamps are from Lawn Fawn’s Snow Day and Let It Snow sets. I really love all the small snowflake stamps that I used on the border! I am less pleased with the trees. I think I will try this again with an emboss resist.

Hello Flowers and Hello Sunshine by Lawn Fawn

IMG_0298

Those flowers are actually the sun stamp and die from Lawn Fawn’s Hello Sunshine collection. I created the background with the stamp, but the colors were so vivid that they detracted from my die-cut flowers–everything just got lost. So, I put a layer of vellum over the background to mute the colors, and this allowed the die cuts to stand out. I used vellum again for the center of my flower to both mute the color and to add the texture of the gold embossed dots.

I hope you enjoyed this sunny alteration.

Hello Sunshine!

Well, it has not been sunny in Florida these days, and the new Lawn Fawn Hello Sunshine collection helped brighten the cool and dreary days.  The CAS theme challenge over at Lawnscaping provided me with the perfect opportunity to play with my new stamps, dies and papers. I was greatly inspired by Christy’s example. She has a video tutorial, so make sure you check that out!
