This week is Anything Goes and I went with using a new die to me by Lawn Fawn called 'Build a House'. I also bought the Christmas add-ons at the same time so decided to dress up my house with lights and a wreath on the door.

The images were stamped, coloured, and die cut then assembled to finish the scene. They are from the Lawn Fawn set called 'Tiny Christmas'.
The sentiment is from the LF 'Holiday Helpers' set.



I would like to enter my card over at the following challenges -

Guest Designer at Krafty Chicks | Any Occasion

 Hi there, and Happy Thursday. It's nearly Christmas, yay! I'm over at Krafty Chicks again as their Guest Designer and the theme this week is - ANY OCCASION

I was in need of a graduation card and this particular graduate loves Llamas. The llama from the Lawn Fawn set ' Llama Tell You' was perfectly matched with the sentiment from the retired HLS set 'Simply Said'.


I stamped the Llama, coloured him in, then die cut him to pop him up on foam tape. I stamped the sentiments and mounted the panel on a coloured base. Easy!

Smile for your Birthday

 Hello!
I spent some time just stamping in between housework etc. I would stamp some images, come back and colour them, then when ready I started die cutting and assembling my card.

I started by creating the background using a wave stencil by Lawn Fawn. I have some new distress oxide inks and probably didn't choose the best colours but I think it worked out ok.


The stamps are from Ocean Shell-fie and Hay There by Lawn Fawn.

Tiny Friends Birthday

 Hi everyone, just a quick post from me tonight. I created a birthday card for a co-workers daughter. I wanted to play with my new distress oxides (LOVE them by the way). While blending I hopped online and bought a few more colours. 

Excuse the photo as I've taken a photo at night due to taking the card with me to work in the morning.


I created a rainbow effect then flicked water over the panel. Then I decided to flick white and black paint as well.
I die cut my generic sentiment and used vellum for the solid background.
I stamped and coloured my images then die cut them out.
This actually didn't take very long and was a lot of fun to make.

I would like to enter my card over at the following challenges -
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday (Anything Goes), Simon Says Stamp Monday (Spritz and Splatter), The Dream Factory (Up), Sweet Stampers (Dies and/or Punches), Crafty Creations (Anything Goes), Unicorn Challenge (Anything Goes), Get Creative Challenge (Anything Goes)
