who doesn't smile flying a kite

I can’t get enough of my @lawnfawn stamps and dies right now. I find the colouring in very relaxing, so here we are using scraps as well.

you know those bar code strips

Not stashbusting today, instead scrapbusting. Whilst cleaning up my desk there were all of the edging strips and scraps from my Dear Lizzy and Snippets paper pads and they got used to make this card. Simples…

cutting up my stamps

Playing again with my new @lawnfawn Blue Skies stamp set and matching dies (love the dies, always do, I wish every stamp had a die) feeling very brave as I actually took the scissors to a stamp to cut the sentiment in half :o.

pretty birdies

I’m sure I saw something like this, but I can’t find where to attribute, so I’m sorry but if you know the source let me know… This started with me trying o find a nice way to draw sky with promarkers. In the past I have masked and then airbrushed, but I used canned air, not a compressor and it was super expensive. Here I sketched around the edge of a @lawnfawn blue skies die and the took ink from a cool aqua onto a blender before tapping this colour down. It ok, but not great….

same card, two colour ways

Still working on a couple of his&hers cards because I just don’t get time in the space of a one week class, but rumour has it that the next @onlinecardclass is 3 weeks long.
I visited my parents for the weekend and carried back my collection of coloured markers so I could make use of my new Lawn Fawn stamps and this is the first result… I think the complementary dies are just super cute with the little white boarder, and certainly a lot quicker than fussy cutting by hand.
Please don’t judge me over the use of comic sans, it is from a pack of rubons I got years ago.
