Fishy Love ~ Finny Fun!

Hey there!  Yes, I am still around creating and checking on what's happening out in the blogosphere.  I had seen box cards and thought they looked so fun but it always seemed too much trouble to cut out all the parts.  So when I saw instructions and demo video by Deb Valder, I had to try.

I used Fintastic Friends stamp & die set from Lawn Fawn.

I cut out the water portion on one of the stamped fish bowl images and attached it to plastic sheet that was cut with Fintastic Friends Lawn Cuts to make a clear bowl.

It was really fun putting all the elements together! #lawnfawn

Thank you Deb!

Finishing Strong Blog Hop

I am joining Operation Write Home in their Finishing Strong Blog Hop this Memorial Day Weekend. Click HERE to start hopping!
"Operation Write Home, a charity that has supported heroes with handmade cards since 2007, will be closing later this year. All cards need to be sent in by August 1st, so I’m helping to get the word out!”

I really like the fun Flying By stamp set from Lawn Fawn so I made a card with Red, White & Blue paper airplanes.  A card like this could be used as a Love Card, my favorite or a Missing You card.

I popped up the airplanes with some foam tape and embossed the die cut cloud to add a little texture.

Hope you can hop with us!

Primarily Missing You

This month's ODBD Challenge is to use Primary Colors in making a card for Operation Write Home.  I really like the font style for this sentiment. Thought if I mounted it on a square that was a little askew, it would keep the card from looking too boxy.

Supplies Used:
Patterned Paper ~ My Stash
Blue Cardstock ~ Bazzill Basics
OWH Brave Limited Stamp Set ~ Simon Says Stamp
Onyx Black Versafine Pigment Ink ~ Tsukineko

OWH Red Friday Blog Hop

Operation Write Home is having a Red Friday Blog Hop to support our nation’s heroes with love from home!  I made a card using a sentiment from one of the fundraiser stamp sets OWH Brave.  This is the first time I tried the mirror image stamping technique.  I had to look thru the backside of the stamp to line up the die to cut it properly.  I think it came out pretty well.

I wanted to make the foxes look like they were in the woods, so I embossed the brown paper and popped up the tree trunks.  Be sure to check out the list of blogs on the hop for some inspiration.  Send in a few cards that meet the guidelines.

Supplies Used:
OWH Brave Limited Stamp Set ~ Simon Says Stamp
Joy to the Woods Stamp & Die Set ~ Lawn Fawn
Tuxedo Black Dye Ink ~ Memento
Versafine Pigment Ink ~ Tsukineko
T0  T2 ~ Copic Markers
