Hello lovely crafty friends! I hope you’re having a great start to your week.
Today I’m popping in to share a silly note card that I created using stamps from Lawn Fawn. I like to keep a small supply of cheerful note cards that I can pop into my partner’s lunch on days with I think he can use a little encouragement or love. I think this one fits the bill and will certainly make him smile.
I have a how-to video to share with you so that you can follow along as I create my card. You can watch the video below, or over on my YouTube channel.
I’ve said it before, but I really like using my stamps all year round. It breaks my heart to have to store them away for specific seasons, and in this case, the stamps I used were intended for Thanksgiving. I bought the Thankful Mice set on Black Friday, so I hadn’t even used it before creating this card. Of course, it also helps to have a set of letter stamps so you can stamp any greeting to suit the card.
That’s it for today. Thanks so much for dropping by!

Hi there! Today I’m sharing a card I created for the Colour Me! challenge. I have some exciting news to share about the Challenge so make sure to check back soon for the big reveal. In the meantime, the challenge this week is create a project using red and navy.
The colours seemed perfect for a father’s day card so that’s what I created. I wanted to create a custom card just for my Dad so I used stamps from Lawn Fawn to create my greeting.
You could easily use this idea and tailor the definition to your Dad. My biggest tip for stamping your own greeting is to draw some lines (in pencil) to guide the stamping and ensure everything is straight. Because this is a one layer card with the greeting as the major focal point, I figured that if I didn’t get things lined up, it would be pretty obvious. I stamped each letter individually, but if you’re patient, you could also line up each word on your acrylic block and stamp it that way.
After finishing the greeting, I felt like the card needed a little something more so I stamped two monsters peeking out from the bottom of the card and coloured them in using my Prisamacolor Pencils.
