"Happy Happy Birthday" Ice Cream Card

For my Aunt's birthday, instead of just buying er a card from the store, I decided it would be much more fun and unique to create my own for her!
I started off by using a Cuttlebug to emboss a swirling, cloud-like design. But when I did this, I made sure to line up the embossing plate to leave a space to stamp my saying from my Lawn Fawn stamp set.
After this, I used a piece of blue painter's tape to cover up the bottom of the card for when I planned to ink the embossed, white paper.
I used Megan Elizabeth's Chillax colored ink, and a sponge to lightly dab it on.
After this, I used Megan Elizabeth's adhesive squares on the back of my inked, and embossed paper, and stuck it onto my card. Along with this, I stamped on my saying: "Happy Happy Birthday".
Using a Lawn Fawn stamp set, I stamped six ice cream cones, and colored them in. Then, I lined them up in a curve, and glued them on.

After that, I decided my card needed a little something more, and I instantly thought of The Buckle Boutique's great rainbow rhinestone sheets! Using myCricut I cut out a heart, to put on as the final touch.

"Some bunny loves you" Card

Today, I made a birthday card, with my mother, Shawn Mosch . While I did the stamping, my mom cut out the images. First, I stamped a bunny from a Lawn Fawnstamp set on a white piece of paper, then colored it in with colored pencils, and a blender pen. After, I cut out two different sized burst shapes using a Cricut image. The outer burst is cut from a purple glitter sheet. The inside burst, we cut out from the center of the blue paper that borders the card. Also, on the polka dot paper, using a Lawn Fawn stamp, I added hearts in some of the circles.

 I also cut out the tag using a Cricut image, on the sides of the tag, we added some white Viva Decor. The saying on the card: "Some bunny loves you" was also from a Lawm Fawn stamp set.
Thanks for checking out my card, and blog! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial, and that it inspires great ideas for you!

From Stamps to Stickers!

Today I was faced with a problem: I wanted to have the cute pictures from theLawn Fawn stamps, but be able to put that image anywhere I wanted to, without having to worry if the ink would stick to the surface. So I started off with stamping, and coloring the images on a strip of white card stock.

 Then, I ran the images through the Xyron, which turned the entire strip of paper into one big sticker.
 I individually cut out each of the images and...


 You have your stamp images transformed into stickers! I also added some Viva Decor to the pie to add some extra color to the sticker.
Now you can stick your favorite images wherever you want to! Perfect for adding a sprinkle of fun to plain notebooks, binders, folders, or pencil bags with going back to school right around the corner!
