Here is my card, once you visit the will know how I got inspired :) I also created a start to finish video for you all. I enjoyed using the wonderful dies and stamps from the new  2015 release Essentials by Ellen. I used the Folk Heart and You Rock Dies and Hello Gorgeous stamp set. I also used my new MISTI tool. this is a must have for all the stampers :) I stamped my own background, which came out just perfect using MISTI. I used the stamp "" Scenery Stripes" by Winnie&Walter to create the background.

Have a Boo-tiful Day!

Happy Monday everyone!! Time for a new challenge at the Lawnscaping Challenge Blog :) Today is all about using Distress inks, Distress edges and so on....

Well "Distress" is not always negetive, esp. in our crafty world, we can use distress inks or distress the edges in a beautiful way! I am sharing a fun card. I used distress inks to create my background. I distressed the edges of my panel. I used distress ink to color the cardbase, so it matches the colors of the card. Lastly, I colored this cute monster hiding behind this cute window in a distressed look using prismacolor pencils :) I love these interactive window dies from the new Winter 2015 release at Ellen Hutson.

Hope you got inspired and will play along! We have an awesome sponsor "Lawn Fawn".

Playing along "Make the Day Special Store" Challenge. I used the colors from the first inspirational photo.
