The Journey Begins

Thanks for joining me!

I love creating and I love sharing what I create with those around me. I go through phases of spamming my Facebook and Instagram accounts with my creative process and end result projects. In doing so lately I thought, maybe I should focus my audience to people who actually want to see these things instead of my unassuming and innocent friends and family.

Since you’ve made it this far, I assume you’re interested in seeing fun paper creations and maybe even find some inspiration. I hope you enjoy it. Please feel free to leave me comments and let me know what you like and what you don’t. Constructive criticism is fabulous and appreciated as I find my way along this journey.

I’d like to start by sharing some cards I’ve made in the past that stuck out to me as a favorite or specific success.

Here I’ve used the Lawn Fawn peek-a-boo backdrop die on both cards which gives you four fun windows to play with. For the top card I used distress inks to blend a water background and spritzed it with water give the cool distressed look. Then I added critters, a diver and the submarine from the Lawn Fawn  You Are Sublime stamp set. It turned out so cute, I loved it! The bottom card showcases Lawn Fawn’s Really Rainbow paper and an Avery Elle stamp set called Peek-a-Boo Pals. I colored all of the stamped images in these two card with copic markers.

Next I am really excited to share a shadow box card features a spattering of Lawn Fawn dies. The only stamping on this card is the sentiment. I was so excited how it turned out. I love it so much!

Here is the front giving the recipient a little clue about the fun in-store when they open it. I love this little crab and palm tree. But once they open it…

there is this amazing shadow box filled with a whole ocean/beach scene! Love from the crabs all around and a little whale peeking in to say hello too! This card was so much fun to make.

This last card is my latest pièce de résistance. It was a card for my grandma’s birthday. I spent over a week planning it out in my head and most of a day stamping, coloring and assembling it.

It features Honey Bee Stamps Busy Bees stamp set and dies, along with the Lawn Fawn Fancy Wavy Banners stamps and dies for the sentiment and finally some Nuvo Crystal Drops in Morning Dew. This is a shadow box card that squishes flat to fit in an envelope and then pops open when you pull it out. If you look carefully, two of the bees inside are mounted on clear acetate strips and move from side-to-side when you pull on the tabs of the card. It looks like they are buzzing around the flowers. I love the dimension of this card and how well the colors came together.

This is just a small sample of some cards I have made in the past few months and was excited to share. I can’t wait to share more with you and have some fun themes planned over the next few months. I hope you come back to see what I’m up to.

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day.
