A Magical Day - (CTD415)

Hi there!  It's time for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge!
For my card I used the Lawn Fawn stamp set Fairy Friends along with the Fairy Friends Lawn Cuts.  A month or so ago I sat and stamped a whole sheet of these fairies and flowers and colored them with Copic markers knowing I would use them on different cards.  Well that's what I used for my card today.  I'm lacking in the mojo department today, it might have something to do with staying up late last night and cleaning my basement and being tired, so it was nice to be able to reach for these stamped, colored and die cut pieces to put a card together today.  For my background paper, I used the Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid petite paper and matted it with brown cardstock.  Then I die cut two circles, one from white cardstock and another from brown for the mat.  I blended on some broken china distress ink on my white circle and then used the Lawn Fawn Grassy Hillside Borders to die cut  my green hill.  I added my fairy house, stone steps, flowers and popped up fairy to my circle and adhered it to my card along with my sentiment banner and flowers.  As a finishing touch, I used my Wink of Stella glitter brush and added glitter to the fairy's wings and all of the flowers.

Fall Fun Week - Last Day!

Happy Sunday!  Today is the last day for my Fall Fun series and I thought it would be fun to go back and share some of my favorite fall cards from the last few years.  
Sooooo in no particular order...the first card above was created using the Papertrey Ink stamp set Simple Sunflower and the paper sunflower was cut out using my Silhouette machine.
The next card set with a fall theme were also created using a Papertrey Ink stamp set, last years anniversary set, Petite Pots.
The gift set above was created using the Papertrey Ink stamp set, Autumn Acorns.
Last fall I created a group of fun cards using the new Lawn Fawn stamp set Happy Harvest.
Above are three Halloween treat bags that were simple and fun to create using the Lawn Fawn stamp set, Spooktacular.
Last month I was privileged to be a Guest Designer over on the My Favorite Things blog and created a group of cards, the two I'm sharing now were two of my favorite fall themed cards using the stamp set, Fall Friends.
This last week during my Fall Fun Week, I shared a new group of cards using some cute Lawn Fawn stamp sets and I had such fun making these cards.  
Thank you so much to those of you who followed along with my Fall Fun series this week! It's been Fun! :)

Fall Fun Week - Day 6!

Hello!  Today is Fall Fun Week - Day 6 and I've got a fun Halloween gift tag that I'm sharing!
For my Halloween tag, I used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Circle Tags for my base.  I blended in some wilted violet and chipped sapphire distress ink along the top portion of my tag and die cut black cardstock for the bottom which I heat embossed using the sentiment from the Lawn Fawn stamp set Spooktacular.  For my critters, I used the stamp sets, Party Animal and Holiday Party Animal along with the coordinating Party Animal & Holiday Party Animal Lawn Cuts,and colored them using Copic markers, then popped them up using foam tape.
Tomorrow is the last day for my Fall Fun series and I'll be sharing some of my favorite fall cards from the last few years.
