Let's Party!

Greetings! Today I am sharing the card I made for my son's 11th birthday. He loves Lawn Fawn critters just like I do, and I recently purchased a couple of sets that I knew I had to use for him. Needless to say, he loved the card. I am playing along with the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge which has the theme of  Party. I am also entering this card into the current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge which is Use Your Favorite Lawn Fawn Set.

Seriously, is this a party or what? I used stamps from Party Animal and Forest Feast. Forest Feast is my current favorite set. But that keeps changing, because I love them all so much! I knew that the tree stump stamp would be the perfect table for a grand party. The hardest part was figuring out who the Guest of Honor was going to be, and I think this little chick stepped up to the plate nicely (pun intended).

I stamped all of the images with VersaFine ink in Onyx Black on Canson Mixed Media Paper, with the exception of the stump, which was brown cardstock with Rich Cocoa Memento Ink. The stamped images were then colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and fussy cut, as I don't have the dies for these sets. But, the shapes are simple enough to cut them out by hand easily. I was luck to find photographic grass paper from DCWV for my ground, and I used Stampendous' Picasso Shield/Stencil to create the clouds in the blue sky with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.

That's it for me today. I will be back tomorrow with another sneak peek from the Stampendous January 2018 catalog. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Blog Hop Finale

Hello! It's time for the finale of the DecoArt and Stampendous blog hop. Have you enjoyed yourself this week? I bet you've got some new techniques that you want to try. I know I do! I am super stoked about my project for today. And it solves a dilemma that we've had in my kids' room for a while.

What you see above is 2 pieces of PVC. And some fab DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics! So, what am I doing with PVC, you ask? Well, my mom bought my son a light saber(Darth Vader's) for Christmas, and he wanted to display it, but we weren't really sure where in his room, and how. I wanted something cooler than hooks, and we thought it would be neat to have the light saber vertical, instead of horizontal. Plus, there was a fab spot for it if it hung in that direction. So, my husband came up with the PVC pip idea, and I altered the pieces.



The end cap holds the base, and the small piece of pipe holds up near the end. And the 2 pieces are spaced out enough so that it's easy…
