Stamping A to Z: “L” is for Lawn Fawn, Layering, and Labels!

Hello Everyone!!!

TGIF! Today, I’m a guest designer for the Two Peas in a Bucket Stamping A to Z event! AND, it happens to be “L” Day!

Here’s my card:

I just love using the chalkboard technique with my Faber-Castell PITT Pastel Pencils!

Thanks for looking :)


5 Different Uses!

Morning folks!

Remember my card for the Two Peas in a Bucket Stamping A to Z event? Well, I used Faber-Castell’s Design Memory Craft products 5 different ways! The pictures above illustrate the different ways.

1. I used the Faber-Castell Gelatos to stamp and added a light mist of water for a watercolor look.

2. For the Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, I used a Stamper’s Big Brush Marker to add color to the raised design before debossing in my embossing machine. This is a Faux Letterpress technique!

3. You can also use the Stamper’s Big Brush Markers for stamping, as I did for my little purple butterfly. I used the Art Grip Colored Pencils to color the butterfly. LOVE THESE PENCILS! No gamsols needed 😉

4. Here’s another shot of how I used the Stamper’s Big Brush Markers to stamp a clear photopolymer stamp. You can also do this on Rubber Stamps!

5. You can also create your own custom mists/paint splatters with the Gelatos and some water. I chose the two shades of green, colored some down on a stamping block, added some water, and then flicked the wash across the main image panel of my card!

There are so many FUN and EASY ways to use the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft products and these are just some of them!

Stamping A to Z: “F” is for Faber-Castell!

Good Morning Everyone!

Last month, I was asked by Jamie Sorenson of Two Peas in a Bucket to guest design for their Stamping A to Z event for October! So, I put together a really fun and easy card to represent the letter “F”, for Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft! I have tutorial pictures to go along with the project in case you’d like to make it from home!

Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week Day 3: My Cup of Tea

Good Morning!

Have you all been enjoying the Design Team creations for Lawn Fawn’s Inspiration Week? I know I have!

I used Lawn Fawn’s My Cup of Tea stamp set to decorate one of my favorite Doodlebug Create-a-cards! I love these tri-fold window cards and I thought it would be fun to layer some heat embossed images from My Cup of Tea!

I hope you’ll check out the rest of the Design Team:
