Baby gift tag with Lawn Fawn

Happy Thursday crafty friends! I begin my month of summer vacation at noon today and I am over the moon excited!  I will be away for 10-days which means limited posts from me here :( but I will be at the beach! :)

This is a special baby boy gift tag for my aesthetician who is actually being induced today!



I used all Lawn Fawn products for this tag with the exception of the cloud stencil for the background by MFT and the Fuse tool in-case she wanted to keep the tag as a keepsake.  I Copic colored my images and used some Distress inks on my blades of grass and for my clouds. 

I can't wait to hear from her when the baby comes! 

Thanks for taking the time!

Christmas in July

Happy Friday crafty friends! Friday = a new CAS-ual Fridays Challenge! This week it is Christmas in July! Almost feels like winter here, has not been the best summer weather so far...




I love Prismacolor pencils on Kraft! So I chose this fantastic mistletoe stamp from the CAS-ual Friday Mistletoe and Holly stamp set. I started by embossing my sentiment from the same stamp set with Ranger red glitter embossing powder. I then stamped my mistletoe with Versafine Onyx black ink repeatadly to create my background. To blend my colored pencils I used Gamsol, I love the effect it gives to the image.  I then used white liquid perfect pearls to make the berries pop, put my card together and topped it off with some red Pretty Pink Posh shiny sequins.

Wplus9 Special Birthday Card

I have not posted in so long, I have been away on a business trip for the last week. I missed my little blog!

This is a special card, I made it for my favourite aunt who turned 70 on July 5 and hasn't been well.  She is a very special lady in my life and she lives in my hometown therefore, I see her maybe once a year.


I used the gorgeous Wplus9 Kind Soul stamp set, the name of that stamp was entirely appropriate and the floral is simply beautiful.  I gold embossed the stamp on Bristol paper and used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.  This floral card is very much my aunt.  I topped it off with a Lime Citron sentiment. My family is all french and these nice french sentiments are very hard to find.  If anyone is looking, Lime Citron is a great choice and has a nice selection.

I finished everything off with Pretty Pink Posh sequins!
Thanks for taking the time!

CFC177 - Tic Tac Toe

Happy Friday crafty friends and Happy 150 to Canada! It is a long weekend here in Canada, July 1 is not only Canada Day but this years marks 150 years for this great country!

Time for another fun Challenge over at the CAS-ual Friday's Challenge Blog! The challenge is all about tic tac toe!


I chose 1 layer card, tag and add a rainbow! Who doesn't love a rainbow! I started by gold embossing my sentiments from the CAS-ual Friday's Shenanigans stamp set (love the scale and the font of that set)! I then used a series of distress inks (on Bristol paper) and made my rainbow! Sprayed the tag with water to give that distress look.  Very happy with the way it turned out!


Go on over to the blog, tic tac toe offers a lot of variety for this challenge!

Lawnfawnatics Challenge #7

Long-weekend here in Quebec, gave me some much needed downtime and I finally had time to play in my craft room.  Had so much fun with this one for the current Lawnfawnatics Challenge #7 Watercolor.


What's better then a rainbow except maybe rainbow pineapples :) Had such fun with this design. I gold embossed the pineapples and used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers for both the pineapples and the background.  I used the new Aloha stamp set for this one.


I also used the lawn Fawn stitched border dies for my white panel. The stitching worked well with the design on the pineapples and the back panel was die cut using the largest Stitched rectangle die.


If you are a fan of Lawn Fawn like I am, you should check-out the challenge.
Thanks for taking the time!

CAS-UAL Fridays CFC176 - Color Challenge

Happy Friday crafty friends! It's time for another challenge over at the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge Blog! It's a color challenge!

I struggle with color challenges because I get in my comfort zone with colors I use frequently. This is always a good challenge for me!




I love these images from the Exclamations stamp set. I used Mama Elephant pigment inks and stamped my images on some Neena Solar white 80lbs card stock.




I then used fun foam and StickIt adhesive to make a dimensional "smile sentiment" from the Smiling Fri-dies in light grey card stock. I then applied a little Hickory Smoke Distress Ink on the top of my die cut piece to give a little ombré effect and topped it off with glossy accents.



I added some Nuvo Jewel Drops and some Pretty Pink Posh sequins and placed my panel on top of a light grey card base!

Mama Elephant Timeless Tulips

Quick post today! I ordered this set about a month ago and I hadn't had time to play with it yet. I decided on some vibrant no-line Copic colouring for this gorgeous Mama Elephant Timeless Tulips bouquet.



I used a mix of reds and pinks on the flowers, made me feel like I was looking at a beautiful vibrant summer garden :) I also used my new Mama Elephant Lafayette Framed Tags Creative Cuts for the frame.


I added a simple sentiment also from the Timeless Tulips set and some Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear sequins.

Thanks so much for taking the time!
