Hello All!! It's time for the Lawnscaping Facebook Inspiration team monthly hop. We have a color full of passion and energy "RED" for you :)
You must be here from Sabine's blog else start from Lawnscaping blog.

Here is my card for today, I love this cute Monster from the Monster Mash set. I used my Spectrum Noir markers to color in the image. Then I die cut some hearts using various dies by Lawn Fawn. They have 1 or 2 heart dies in most of the Lawn Cuts and they are just perfect way to embellish the card. I also cut this circle file using my cameo. Sorry, I don't remember where I got this file from? This was a free file. I want to thank the person who provided it.

Your next stop on the hop is Kari's blog and she has an amazing creation for you :) Below is the hop order in-case you miss somewhere..

Me and You and a Winner!!

Hello everyone! Today, I am sharing a card with you using some new patterned papers by Bella Blvd. I love the patterns and colors of these papers. And I also used some new dies by Winnie&Walter.  The dies cut so nice...just like butter, I used " Love cutaway and Katharine Cutaways". This is my first time using their dies and I am all in love. Oh!!! talking about new. I am also using a wonderful die "Folk Heart" from the new release by Ellen Hutson and Julie Ebersole. They have a hop today with some amazing products. Do check it out HERE.
I did some black flicks to the cardbase using Memento Luxe black ink.

Now onto the winner of the Technique Toolbox Class giveaway

Celebrate Card

Hello Everyone! Today, I have a card and a video for you sharing a new to me technique. I am loving the foil trend and then I saw some Fab Foil at WOW! I had to get them to see how it works :)
So, I used my new Winnie and Walter stamps to create this card. I love the result and am in love with these foils. I am going to get more colors of them soon :)

Here is my card and the video, it sure was difficult to photograph this with all the shine...LOL

I hope you give it a try as this was fun :) Enjoy the weekend!!

My Favorite Things Stencil review and a Happy Card!

Hello Everyone! Before I start did you check out the new online class at StampNation? It's packed with techniques and information. It is a fun class :) Check out the details HERE.

Now onto something special. Sometime back My Favorite things sent me a few of their stencils to try and see how I feel about them. Oh!! I am so excited...Thank you MFT for the honor. I tried various techniques using them. I won't be going in details here on what and how I did the techniques but I have to tell you that I love these. I like the material and how it's not too thick. It is thin yet sturdy.

I did a video to share a card and a bit more about the stencils. You can watch it HERE at my youtube channel.

Here are some of the example pieces:

I did try one more technique but photo is blurry, I will add it tomorrow.

Here is a card I created:

 Hope you like my video. I am sorry it's not perfect but I am trying to learn more about making them :)
