Lawn Fawn Welcome Baby - Pay It Forward #2

Hey folks!
Today I'm sharing my second Pay It Forward card. My daughter and I delivered these (you can see the first one here) to their respective hospitals on Tuesday. I have to say peeps, this really was a fulfilling experience!
We have no idea what the reception from each of the patients were, but it's cool. The nurses we gave them to said they knew exactly who to give them to, so it was poifect! 
As usual, if you're interested in any of the products I have used I will have links at the bottom of the post! 

I'm seriously thinking I must make it my personal goal in life to own every Lawn Fawn Critter. Some people have Bucket Lists like going to Paris or visiting the Grand Canyon. Even eating an entire cheesecake in one sitting. Not me! I simply want Lawn Fawn Critters. I don't actually know anyone that has the Grand Canyon on their Bucket List, but you get the point.

I have agreed to a "spending freeze" with some of my peeps on the Stamping Enablers Fa…

Watercolor For The Grads

Hey folks!
Today I'm sharing set of graduation cards that I made using three different brands of watercolors.
I'm a big fan of watercolor and and even bigger fan of Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Inks, but I just recently purchased the Zig Kuretake Clean Color Real Brush 36 Piece Set and the Zig Kuretake Gansai Tambi 24 Color Set. I was really curious how these compared to each other. It's one thing to watch someone else use them in a video, but I'm a hands on, decide for myself kind of girl, so...
It's always fun to try new things! That and I'm a sucker for anything labeled Watercolor, but let's not talk about that, shall we? 
If you're interested in any of the products that I've used, I will have links for you at the end of the post!

I used Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Cardstock (it's my fave) for all three cards and I purposely kept my coloring loose. I was more interested in the flow and blending of each as apposed to detail.

I already k…

Congratulations On Your New Home!

Hey folks!
I have loads to share here the next week or so (including another Pay It Forward card), but I wanted to get this one up real quick. 
Easy cards seems to be the flavor of the month for me lately. So much to do and so little time, but I'm determined to get my craft on so, whaddya do? 
As a warning my friends, I'm so tired tonight, that I'm pretty sure that watching paint dry would be more entertaining, but I shall foregone anyhow.

The stamp set I used is Home Sweet Home by Avery Elle. What a fabulous set! If you haven't seen it, then you should and if you don't have it then you should do that too! I loosely took my inspiration from a picture I saw on Pinterest.

After I stamped the Teepee in Momento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it in with my choice of Copic's, I used my MISTI Stamping Tool to heat emboss it with Versamark and Ranger Clear Embo…
