We are showcasing Lawn Fawn Products this week. You don’t have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used
I love the cuteness of Lawn Fawn stamp sets. And I really adore the cute otter in the Otterly Great Birthday stamp set and dies. This is my card using the adorable otter image from Lawn Fawn!
I black embossed the otter and watercoloured using Zig Clean Brush watercolour pen. Then I die cut the otter using the coordinating die. Then stamped the sentiment on a strip of white cardstock and trimmed the edges.
For the background, I stamped the new Stepping Stone background stamp from You have my Heart collection from Simon Says Stamp in versamark and white heat embossed the image on watercolour paper. Then I coloured the inside of the stones in various shades of blue and aqua using Zig Clean Brush Watercolour pens. The background I shaded in grey. Once dry, I used the largest Stitched rectangle die from Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle die set to die cut the watercoloured background. I adhered this panel to Audrey Blue card base using craft foam. Then added a layer of vellum which I die cut using the third largest stitched rectangle die. On top of the vellum panel, I adhered the die cut otter and the sentiment using foam adhesives. To bring the card together, I used Pretty Pink Posh’s Cobalt, Sea Breeze and Sparkly Clear sequins.
If you use instagram add #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too!
After more than a week, I finally was able to spend some time in my craft room. Obviously lacking in creativity, I wanted to try a challenge to bring back my mojo. That is when I saw the new Pin – Sights Challenge at Ellen Hutson. I decided to play the challenge because I found it challenging with my lack of creativity.
It is a mood board challenge.
Love the colour combination. But I did not have any bronze paper or embellishments. After searching through my stash, I found bronze Zing sparkly embossing powder. Hooray! I can use it to emboss or make my own embellishements. I decided to emboss the sentiments on vellum cardstock using the Bronze Sparkly embossing powder.
Here is my finished card.
Thanks for stopping by!
Sharing with you another watercoloured die cut card using Penny Black dies.
I did the exact same process as my previous card HERE. I love how I have a rainbow of colours against black. I layered them one over the other to get some dimension. I then die cut the Thank You die out of white cardstock and adhered towards the bottom of the card. I also added some thin strips of watercolour cardstock to anchor the sentiment die cut.
Ksenija from Sovushka Salvia Blog asked if she can use this card of mine as a muse for her new Clean and Simple challenge on her blog. Of course, I said yes! it is an honor to be featured and used as an inspiration. Thank you so much Ksenija 🙂

After a month of celebrating the 4th anniversary with plenty of prizes (Yay!) we are back to our routine muse challenge. This month’s muse is my all time favourite designer – Debby Hughes! She is full of talent and I adore her designs. I am sure you will all agree with me 🙂 Here is one of her recent card using Altenew Stamps as the muse.
How pretty is this card? The colouring on the vellum makes the flower look soft and pretty. I love it this flower stamp set from Altenew. I have this set with me so I decided to use this set on my card too. I still wanted to use vellum and colour the flowers but did not want to CASE Debby’s card paper for paper, colour for colour, flower for flower…. You know what I mean? I am lots for the right word here lol!
