Lawn Fawn Toast Pop Up

Hi everyone and welcome back! Today I’m sharing a fun interactive card that I created using some new products from Lawn Fawn. 
This was my first non-holiday card after the holidays and it was honestly refreshing. I may have gotten a little carried away with my breakfast scene but I was truly enjoying the process.
I have a video explaining my process that you can down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.
Lawn Fawn comes out with the some of the most unique ideas for interactive cards! This one is having the toast pop up out of the toaster but I have so many more ideas for it! 
I’m using many different sets from Lawn Fawn to create my scene. The sets include Let’s Toast, I Love You (calyptus), Sweet Friends, Thanks a Latte, Critter Concert, Bun in the Oven, and Milk and Cookies. All of my images are stamped onto Lawn Fawn white cardstock with Jet Black ink and colored with copic markers. Then used the coordinating dies to cut them out.
The cheerful background is created using the Perfectly Plaid Rainbow pack and Woodgrain cardstock. I added a border using the Reverse Stitched Scallop Rectangle Die.
Doesn’t this just make you hungry? I love all of these cute images! I hope you’ll check out my video HERE to see the complete process.

New Year – New Adventures

Hi everyone! I hope you had an amazing holiday! It has been crazy busy here since last week. Prepping for Christmas parties at school, to family gatherings and then waiting for Santa with the kids. While I haven’t posted anything in a while, I have been creating a TON behind the scenes! I have lots of adventures ahead from new teams to guest designs spots.
For an update on my current adventures you can always view my Resume page. One in particular is the end of my term with Pretty Pink Posh. It has been amazing and such a joy to work with Paulina and the team. Although I won’t be on the design team, I will still be creating with their products so be sure to be on the look out! 
Looking into the new year I’m excited to announce that I will be joining the Neat & Tangled Design Team. Danielle has such a great variety of products from stamps/dies to stencils and sequins! If you follow me you know I love to play with stencils! 
This has been such an amazing year for me personally and creatively. While, I have had my own personal bumps in the road, I refuse to let anything hold me back. I try to always look forward. Look for the rainbow in all things. 
Don’t forget, if you haven’t already, you can also follow me on my other social media accounts.
Instagram ( I like to share sneak peeks or behind the scenes)
I cannot wait to share what I’ve been working on! Lots of posts and videos coming your way soon so don’t miss out!

Tweet Friends + Good Time To Wine + GIVEAWAY!

Welcome back everyone! I’m so excited for today’s post. Grab a coffee or tea, I have lots of pictures and information to share today. Bonus TWO videos! Plus a GIVEAWAY sponsored by My Favorite Things. 
I had the pleasure of getting my fingers on this set early. The Tweet Friends stamp set is designed by Stacey Yacula for My Favorite Things and has just the cutest images and sentiments on it. This also has a coordinating die that you can purchase separately. I have to admit, it was nice to break away from Christmas related crafting for a while.
I have a video that you can watch down below or HERE on my Youtube channel that you DEFINITELY want to check out! There may be a GIVEAWAY involved!!
This set is so cheerful, it’s bound to have you whistling a little happy tune!
I couldn’t resist creating a little scene with these tweethearts. I copic colored my images using Neenah White Cardstock and MFT Extreme Black Ink. Then used the coordinating die to cut them out.
For my scene, I ink blended Worn Lipstick, Spun Sugar and Antique Linen Distress Oxide inks. I added one of my favorite stencils to the sky which is the Radiating Rays Stencil. Keeping this panel one layer, I ink blended Cracked Pistachio and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide inks using the Grassy Edges Stencil.
I die cut the bold SMILE word die from the panel and attached to a white A2 size cardbase. I also die cut the bold SMILE word die from white cardstock 3 more times. The first set, I layered right into the negative space. This made the front of my panel one layer. Then I added my colored images. Next, I stacked my other two layers of the SMILE word die. This gives the illusion my images are behind the word which I think is super cool. 
Be sure to check out my video on my Youtube channel for the full tutorial and chance at a $25 gift certificate from My Favorite Things!! To be eligible you must subscribe to my Youtube Channel and the My Favorite Things Youtube Channel. Please leave a comment on my video once done or if you already are subscribers to both. You have until December 26, 2018, 12AM Central to leave your comment. I will announce a winner on December 28, 2018 here on my blog. 
My next projects are featuring the MFT Good Time To Wine card kit. 
I also have a video tutorial that you can check out down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.

Have you ever tried the shaker pouches from MFT? I will admit, this is my first time and oh so much fun!! Be sure to check out my video for a closer look! 
I played around with alcohol inks to create bold backgrounds for both cards. Alcohol inks are so much fun to work with and you never get the same look twice. It’s always a surprise! I highly recommend using the Tim Holtz Glass Media Mat. It’s a great surface to work on and easy clean up. You don’t see it in my videos too often because it’s really hard for me to film with it without getting a reflection but I use it all the time off screen.
These shaker pouches would look great with just glitter cardstock in the background but throw in some sequins and check out that sparkle! This wine glass would be great to make cards for weddings, anniversaries, New Years, or just get togethers with friends.
For my card, I die cut the wine glass from gold glitter cardstock and the back of the glass from white glitter cardstock. The shaker pouch is easily attached using 1/8″ scortape which is super strong adhesive. For the inside of my shaker, I used a variety of sequins including 3mm, 4mm, and 6mm sparkling clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.
My next card is featuring the Mondo CHEERS die that you can get FREE with a $60 purchase. It’s such a great size and takes up center stage on my second alcohol inked background. Check out in my VIDEO how I got those amazing spots on the background with the alcohol inks. I tested out adding Isopropyl Alcohol to a mini mister and spritzing my Yupo Paper. I don’t have the Isopropyl linked to anyway but I just picked mine up at Walmart. You can really find it anywhere just makes sure it’s at least 91% Isopropyl Alcohol.
I didn’t think the card needed much more but you could certainly add a sentiment underneath if you chose. I die cut the CHEERS from white glitter cardstock which seems to be my addiction lately.
I’ll have all the supplies listed below.
Whew! That was a lot! I hope you stuck around til the end. I separated out the supply lists for convenience.
