Congrats & Sweet Smiles - LF inspiration week


It's Lawn Fawn June inspiration week and because I missed yesterday's post (sorry!) today I have a 2x1!

First, my Scripty Congrats card, what can I say? I love this series of dies, the font is absolutely lovely!! I keep asking for an "hola" one ;)

I combined it with other favorite dies and the new rainbow die to make a baby card. I wanted super happy clouds so I stamped the smile of the smaller face from Blue Skies and then I added two dots of black enamel for the eyes.


Everything was colored with Copic markers because I didn't want to waste a lot of color cardstock on the rainbow and this way I could choose between more shades :)
I cut the sentiment several times (4 maybe? I can't remember...) and adhered all them together for more dimension.


My second and third projects feature Sweet Smiles, a new medium set with a lot of smiley faces that you can use to put smileys on every other lawn fawn stamp (I know that many have alredy faces but you replace them with these new faces insted for funny new stamps!).

Have a ball

I had a lot of fun coloring the machine and stamping all those funny faces on each of the balls!

Now, my third project, it's a crazy idea made into a card lol I used the ball stamp and one of the faces to create a caterpillar, it's super easy: just stamp the ball repeatedly masking each time the last ball you stamped, then stamp the face and hand drawn a lot of easy foots and anthens.

Thanks caterpillar

I cut the apple shape with my Silhouette and then colored it with Distress inks. I made it in no time and I think it's a cute card for a teacher, what do you think?
