Lawn Fawn – Snowman…

I’ve been wanting to use my Lawn Fawn stamps and earlier this week when a couple of our granddaughters and their friend were over, we played with them!   So fun!

Of course my snowman had to be holding a heart! (MS border punch)   I used a Magnolia DooHickeys tree die and limeade twine.

I stamped on Hammermill 80# color copy cover paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Promarkers and Flexmarkers.  I used my Perfect Paper Layers Tools to matt the image and MFT Die-namics cloud dies for the snow!   The greens are Forest green , Apple Cider and Pear green.   The blues are Twilight Sky and Midnight Blue.  I used Flexmarkers for the grays… Blue Grey 1, 2, 3, 4.   Can’t remember the browns on the birdie.  The orange is pumpkin.

I’m linking up to the Lawnscaping Challenge and the theme is “Dust ’em off”!  woohoo!  My card made the Top Mows!

Meet Caroling Daisy… a new clear stamp from the Don and Daisy line by Marianne Design.  She is stamped on Hammermill 80# Color copy paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Promarkers and Flexmarkers.  The pattern paper is from the NEW Fancy Pants Christmas 6×6 pad.

I used the new Book die from Marianne Design and stamped a stamp from Embossing Arts on the book page.  I had to use a negative mask (I made it by stamping and cutting out what I wanted to stamp)  to stamp the image.

Martha Stewart holly branch punch and holly border punch. ok – the holly branch punch is hard to find, some places say discontinued… I found it at Blue Moon, link below… if you want it… grab it while you can!  The JOY sentiment is from Printworks Collection.

I wish I’d thought to stickle up the candle beams… there is always something I think of after the fact… this is already version 2! lol

Believe it or not,  I used the Sweet Stop Sketches sketch for my card!!! lol   I’m going to go ahead and link it up even though I had to take a detour or two! hehe

SSPC #5  – Color challenge… use blue, tan and yellow with your pixie/sprite/fairy stamp!  I used Mimi and Friend from Penny Black,  colored with Promarkers and Flexmarkers.  Memory Box Honeyblossom die and AmyR Stamps Oh So Beachy Sentiment set.  October Afternoon pattern paper and a SU stamp to go around the edge of the image.  I think the name of the set is Tiny tags.  I went with kraft for the “tan” in the color scheme. Layers are all cut with the Perfect Layers Tools… even the card base. I scored and folded an 8.5 x 11 piece of kraft card-stock in half…then I held my ruler on the fold at 1/4 in.  and placed the image rectangle right up to it, stuck it down… then used the 1/4 in. Perfect Layers Tool to cut the sides and bottom at 1/4 in. for perfect spacing!  love these tools!

Sassy Emma…

Emma of Sugarplums fame is  back! Standing tall in the strawberry patch!  Love the sentiment too…part of the NEW Berry Logos cling stamp set.  The Strawberry die comes with the berry, the top and the blossom… so sweet!  I used the Dottie Trim Border die for the dirt.  The fence is the new die from last month… my video on how I shaped it is HERE.  The pattern paper pad is from We R Memory Keepers and the twine is from My Minds Eye.  The stitching lines stamp is from Sandylion… it’s discontinued but HERE is a picture of it, so you know what you’re looking for.

I colored Emma with Promarkers and Flexmarkers.  Skin – ivory, vanilla, oatmeal, apricot and soft peach for her cheeks.  Hair – Champagne, Nutmeg and Auburn, all Flexmarkers.   Shirt and headband – Pastel Pink and Berry.  Jeans – Pastel Beige, Soft Khaki (flex) and Khaki.  Shoes – same as jeans only add Umber.

I love the dirt/Dottie Trim die cut out of the pattern paper but the fence,  not so much.  Funny how that works… ok,  not so funny when you’re all done! lol   I’ll quit looking at the picture and go eat some strawberries!

Sassy Emma, the Strawberry die and Berry Logos are all part of the May release… they’ll be in the store Thursday night at 8 p.m. CST, HERE.

Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy the creations by the rest of the ATS Design Team HERE.  While you’re there be sure to link up on yesterday’s preview post and today’s!

Coloring with Promarkers and Flexmarkers…

Today I’m coloring with Promarker and Flexmarkers colors. I’ve colored five skin tones and a variety of colors to hopefully give you an idea of how the colors look and work together.  I haven’t colored with these markers very long…I’m still learning for sure! I like them and enjoyed learning to use the chisel tip for covering larger areas and getting in tight places! 


Here’s cute Umbrella Lula showin’ her colors!


 

 forgot to add, I used Dusky Rose on her cheeks!
