Everything is fun with you (Lawn Fawn)

by Kylie

Hi Everyone,

I’ve been colouring again! This time I pulled out the Lawn Fawn set Love You S’more as I realised that I haven’t used it since I bought it, apart from the initial “stamp up all the images to see what they look like” play. I LOVE this set, especially the bear. I now have a sleuth of bears of all different colours decorating my craft space. lol

The scene for this card came together because I have also been playing with the Critters in the Forest set testing out the new Stampin’ Up! Blendabilities markers (I recently purchased the Old Olive Assortment and the Coastal Cabana Assortment as I’ve been keen to see how they compared with Copics).

I’d been busy colouring away – animals and trees – and it hit me that I really should make the images into a card. What a novel concept! lol I decided that instead of distress inking the sky (I do tend to favour this technique), or using a stamp to create a starry night, that I would use some pretty paper from the Hello Sunshine 6×6 petite paper pack from Lawn Fawn (which I couldn’t find on their website – please don’t tell me it is discontinued…). I thought the paper was a little too bright for the scene I had begun to set so I sponged over it with Faded Jeans Distress Ink. That’s better! I stamped the greeting and embossed to make it pop and then finished assembling my scene.

Here’s the card…

Everything is Fun with You Materials used: Stamps - Critters in the Forest, Love You S'more (Lawn Fawn); Dies - Landscape Trio (Mama Elephant); Distress Ink Pads; Copic Markers; Blendabilities (Stampin' Up!); Designer Paper - Hello Sunshine (Lawn Fawn); Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents.

It’s a typical “Kylie” card, isn’t it? lol

Anyway, I hope you are all happy and well and spending lots of time creating! Thanks for visiting my blog today.

Happy Stamping!

Before I forget: Darnell has NBUS Challenge #2 going, so be sure to waltz some of your ‘new product’ cards that way; everything counts! Okay, this IS a “typical Kylie” card – an incredibly adorable scene, featuring amazing colouring a a gathering of super sweet critters! I want to join them around the fire, and given that I’m terrified of bears, this is a sign of how fabulous your card is! Darling to the max!! Off to see what’s next…and your challenge with Elle sounds like a tonne of fun! You two are quite the creative duo!!

Hi C, nice to see you back! 🙂 Oh I remembered Darnell’s challenge…and then forgot again. lol I better do something about that. 🙂 Thank you so much for your kind words. 🙂

Wow…what an amazing scene you created. Just so sweet.

Thanks very much, Kim! Love creating scenes with all those adorable critters! 🙂

I just love seeing your scenes, Kylie! They’re always such a lovely sight, and a treat for the eye. And this card is no exception! Love the coloring, too. That grayish white bear is beautiful, and I just love the night sky.

Lawn Fawn did discontinue Hello Sunshine! 🙁 I was not very happy to hear that, as it’s a gorgeous paper pad and I really wanted to have lots of it. I lucked out and found a couple of packs in a store, still, and bought them immediately. But now I fret about using them…

How do you like the blendabilities markers? I’ve heard mostly negative reviews from people who use Copics, but I’d love to hear your thoughts too. I eyed them briefly in the online store, so I’m curious as to whether they’re worth investing in.

Thanks very much, Elle! I think scenes are one of my most favourite things to create. 🙂

Oh did they? Drat! I’m a bit like that with paper too but then companies are always releasing new goodies which I just *have* to have so I am getting better about using them. lol

I am a bit undecided about the Blendabilities markers at the moment. I’m not loving them like I had hoped I would but then again I haven’t used them a lot yet and I only have the two sets. I am finding the coastal cabana assortment a little harder to work with but I’m not sure why. Hopefully over the weekend I will have a little bit more time to play with them. I’ll keep you posted. 🙂

I just thought of a new challenge… Like the stamp trio, but with patterned paper! I’ve got a literal mountain of paper and I keep finding more and more “must-have” pads that I keep buying. I really need to make myself use it more before it gets too old and dusty to use… 😀

Kylie 5 September, 2014 - 7:08 pm

LOVE this idea! I’m in! I have tonnes of the stuff too. And you’ve probably noticed that I don’t use a tonne of it. Perhaps grab a patterned paper pad and make at least three cards using it?

Elle L. 6 September, 2014 - 3:08 am

Yes, that sounds perfect! Maybe even combine the two, and do 3 cards with the same stamp set /and/ the same patterned paper pad… Now that would be challenging! 🙂

Going to work on the patterned paper challenge over the weekend, I think. Thanks for the awesome inspiration! 😀

Kylie 6 September, 2014 - 8:19 am

Ooooh, challenging! Deal, Elle! One patterned paper pad and one stamp set to create three cards! 🙂 Can’t wait to see which stamps and paper you choose. I think I’ve already worked out the supplies I am going to use. Just need to make a Father’s Day card for tomorrow and then I’m onto it. Go us!!!
