Entries for Lawnscaping challenge's DT call

Hi everyone!

Taking a chance here and throwing my name in the hat of Lawnscaping challenge's DT call.

I'm mainly doing it for fun and as I have recently "discovered" the fun with Lawn Fawn and are still waiting to play with the latest release - LOL!
This is a card for a close friend, who recently got her storage flodded, due to heavy rain here in Sweden. It was ok, there has been worse flods in the area and there was not to much damage. Plus in the end it's only material stuff - nothing that couldn't be replaced...

I've masked the rain drops (which are stamped with water proof archival ink) and the bottom of the card and sprayed it with LSG, the edge is then hidden behind the twine - am I not clever ;) The rain drops and umbrella is then accented with wink of stella glitter, it came out better then I imagened - doesn't it look wet to you?

The sentiment is from MFT all smiles stamp set, I thought it was very a appropriate due to the circumstances. The border at the bottom of the card is also a stamp from Lawn Fawn's stamp set, which I stamped repeatedly.

The card is based on the sketch from My Favorite Thing - MFTWSC198

Products used on the card:
Lawn Fawn PLUS ONE stamp and die set
Jet black archival ink
Memento tuxedo black dye ink
Copic markers (B91, B93, B95, CG3, CG5, CG7)
Post it (masking)
MFT die-namic decorative doily
MFT STAX pierced circle
MFT All smiles stamp set
LSG whale watch blue starburst spray
Lawn Fawn sky single cord
Clear Wink of stella pen

I also entered an older card of mine. My project for Lawnscaping's one layer challenge, you can find that post HERE. As I only have one stamp set so far, I hope to show my versatility :)

A father's love

Hi everyone!

Another baby layout for The Rubber Buggy.
However,  I'll be reluctant to post picture of my boy on the Internet, I hope you will all understand.

I have mainly used Graphic 45 deluxe collection baby 2 bride, but there are a couple of other collections as well. The background across the layout is from Le romantic and the bird in the lower left corner is fuzzy cut from Little darlings.  The paper and photo are matted with paper from my stash.

Products from the store:
Graphic 45 deluxe collection baby 2 bride (paper, cut a parts and stickers)
Stamping supplies (scissors, double sided tape)

So you see how easy it is to work with a collection pack :)

Thank you for visiting!

Christmas with Tim Holtz

Hi everyone!

So Christmas is just around the corner - right?
Well, if you're not believing it now. You're in for a surprise later - LOL!
Times really flies.

But that's just me:)

There I've returned to a beloved technique, using Tim Holtz distress ink. I've started with embossing the background stamp to create a mask which will be really visual to the eye when you distress the card. I've then really blinged it up with the glimmer spray and you have the most gorgeous background paper.

I didn't want to cover it up, since the simplicity of itself is absolutely stunning. So I just wrapped some twine around it. The die cut is an oldie by Tim and the holly leaves are actually from an old punch, but I believe you can use this die from Memory box to achieve the same look.

Products used from the store:
Magnolia background stamp SILENT NIGHT
Distress ink FIRED BRICK
Prima bloom spray GOLD FOIL
Bakers twine RED
Stamping supplies (embossing ink, embossing powder, score tape, distress tool, ultra smooth paper)
