Lawn Fawn for Simon Says Stamp

Hello friends! I'm thrilled to be on the Simon Says Stamp blog with a project highlighting some new and older Lawn Fawn products! Brunch and a good pun; two of my favorite things! I had so much fun creating this brunch themed all die cut card; perfect for a Valentine, or love themed card!

To begin, I cut a piece of patterned paper from the Knit Picky Winter 6X6 Petite Paper Pack to a 
5 1/2" square. I then added a white cardstock  mat, cut to a 5 3/4" square, then attached that to a 6" square cut from Guava cardstock.

Next, I started creating the dies. 

Egg: paint splatter from Art Supplies Die Cuts cut from white cardstock
         yolk: circle cut from Sunflower cardstock

Bacon: I cut a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock, about 2 inches wide and 4 1/2" tall. I then used the                 Stitched Simple Wavy Borders Dies and die cut each side of the cardstock strip to give it a                   wavy shape. I then colored it with Copic sketch markers to make it look like bacon, and                       added a face using the I Scream, You Scream Dies. I just love how sassy she is, lol!

Waffle: I cut a heart from Bristol smooth cardstock using the 
             Ta-Da Diorama Heart Window Add-On Die. With pencil, I lightly drew a square grid, then                 colored each square with Copic markers to look like the squares on a waffle. I then cut                             skinny strips of Vanilla cardstock, and attached to the waffle covering the pencil lines. To                     create the syrup drip, I cut another heart from Bristol cardstock, then used the wavy die from 
             I Scream, You Scream Dies to create the wavy edge. I then ink blended it with 
             Brushed Corduroy and Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Ink. I cut a small piece of Bristol                       cardstock to an inch square and colored it with Copic markers to make the pat of butter. The                   face was cut from Black Licorice  and Ballet Slippers cardstock using the 
             Stitched Happy Heart Dies.

Orange Juice: I used the Build-A-Drink Dies to make the juice. I cut everything from Bristol
                       cardstock, inking the juice and orange slice with Carved Pumpkin 
                       and Ripe Persimmon Distress Oxide Ink. 

Berries: I cut the berries from Bristol using the Strawberry Patch Dies, Stitched Cupcake Dies
              and Stitched Circle Frames, then colored the berries with Copic markers.

I added white highlights to all the die cuts then arranged and attached them, using foam tape on some for dimension. Next, I die cut the word 'brunch' from white and Guava cardstock using the Henry's ABC's Dies, layering them slightly offset, then attaching them to my card. I stamped the sentiment from Porcu-pine for You in black ink onto a white cardstock banner die cut using the Portrait Heart Garland Backdrop Die. I trimmed the banner and attached it to the top of my card, above the alpha sentiment. Lastly, I die cut little red hearts from the Pink Textured Canvas cardstock, highlighted with white gel pen. to complete my card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope I inspired you to create something fun and unique with some  Lawn Fawn products at Simon Says Stamp!

Blog Hop Day 5

Tammy Stark <--you are here

I had so much fun creating a card to celebrate this HUGE milestone for Pretty Pink Posh...a bright stenciled background, topped with 2 cupcakes, and a bunch of candles (10 wouldn't quite fit, lol), just screams Party Time!

To begin, I cut an piece of Bristol smooth cardstock a bit smaller than A2 and stenciled it using the Birthday Words Stencil, with Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Squeezed Lemonade, Tumbled Glass, and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide inks. Next, I matted it onto an A2 light pink card base. Next, I die cut 2 cupcakes using the Big Birthday Cupcake Dies. I die cut the cupcakes with papers to coordinate with the fun, bright stenciled background. The bow, sprinkles, and party hat on the white cupcake are all included with the Big Birthday Cupcake Dies. 
I assembled the pink cupcake, then added a bunch of candles using the Birthday Candle Dies. I just love the touch of whimsy all those candles add! 

For the candles, I die cut a white base, then the stripes were cut from different colored cardstock and attached to the candle base. There are little stitched lines on the candle base, making these sooo easy and fun to assemble! The candle flame was cut from Bristol cardstock and colored with Copic markers for a more realistic look!

Lastly, I embossed the sentiment from the Party Time Stamp Set with white embossing powder on a brown cardstock strip. "Party" was stamped on white cardstock in a chocolate brown ink, then die cut with the Party Time Coordinating Dies to complete my card!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed the blog hop!
