Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes

I was inspired by Mojo Monday's Sketch 296 however because I strayed from it a bit I decided not to submit it to the challenge because I only sort of followed the sketch. So I decided to submit this to the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes Challenge. I was pretty pleased with the outcome and I did use the other half of the cardstock piece I cut earlier for my other card. I had a lot of fun with this card and got to use things that I hadn't used before (always exciting!) and I enjoyed that.

Again, I'm not doing so great with trying to rotate the image in blogspot's formatting. 

Supplies Used:
Stamps: So Much To Say (Lawn Fawn)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Cardstock: Card base core'dinations (not sure what?), Green card stock (DCWV Brights w/white core, 8x8 pad)
Paper: Colorbok, various collections (which I liked the patterns but goodness it is thin, I would avoid Colorbok)
Twine: Blue Lawn Trimming (Lawn Fawn) (the one that came FREE with order, wrapped around my purchase, those folks at Lawn Fawn rock!)
Dies: Circle Stackables Lawn Cuts (Lawn Fawn)
Various Tools: Corner Chomper, Cricut Paper Trimmer, Glossy Accents, ATG, Mono Multi Adhesive Liquid Glue, Scissors, Acyrlic Block, Magnetic Cutting Mat, Martha Stewart Score Board, Stylus, Scissors, Big Shot

I think that is everything. Oh and go to Simon Says Stamp's Challenge Blog. They Rock!

Seize The Birthday #18


Today is my first time trying to follow a sketch for a challenge and also making a masculine card. I had a fun time with it and a lot of things I used for the first time on a card, twine, glossy accents, and a bunch of new products.

So I'm not really sure with blogspot how to turn the photo 90 degrees counter clockwise. But here is a photo of my project. I'm pretty happy with it. Definitely showing improvement from previous cards and I love the Lawn Fawn products that I used in this card.

Twine: Lemon Single Cord (Lawn Fawn)
Die Cuts: Puffy Stars Lawn Cuts (Lawn Fawn)
Paper: Pink Lemonade 12 x 12 (Lawn Fawn)**
Card stock: Some type of core'dinations paper 8 1/2 x 11(the card base), DCWV Cardstock Stack Brights w/white core 8x8 pad
Ink: VersaMagic Aloe Vera Chalk Ink
Other: Big Shot, Sharpie Pen, Glossy Accents (to adhere bow), Mono Multi Adhesive Liquid Glue, Xyron 1.5" Sticker Maker, Martha Stewart Score Board, We R Memory Keepers Stylus, Cricut Paper Trimmer (soon will be replaced, yay!), Pink ATG, Inkadinkadoo Stamping Block, We R Memory Keepers Magnetic Cutting Mat, Ranger Craft Mat,  Scrapbook Adhesives 3d foam squares, We R Memory Keepers Precision Scissors

**The Lawn Fawn paper I used here was from a 12x12 paper collection from Lawn Fawn but I didn't buy it! I got it FREE with my purchase of stamps and die cuts and lots of other fun Lawn Fawn products by buying direct from . As a wonderful note they send you some of their free papers with every order and a free thank you photopolymer stamp. The whole Lawn Fawn team is amazing and the package come with cute yarn and blue lawn trimmings wrapped around it and I actually save it all and keep looking for a project to use it in. They have free shipping on orders over $75 and are very quick with sending your order out. I actually love their stamps so much that I made an excel file on all the stamp sets they have available. Their stamp sets lend themselves to being combined in unique ways together due to same cute, whimsical style in every set and nice solid stamping lines. Love, love, LOVE Lawn Fawn.

I think I got everything, whew! I used the sketch from Seize the Birthday.


Thank you for reading and wish me luck. Lol.
