TSOL: Inspirational Easter Greeting

_MG_7790Hello Blogosphere!

Are your Easter plans in full swing? As I was hammering out the details for our Easter Sunday dinner with friends, I was inspired to pull out The Stamps of Life Easter4Him Stamp Set!

I embossed the Core’dinations cardstock using the Moroccan Set Textured Impressions folder, sanded the raised areas with medium grit sandpaper, added color with the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Tropicals Gelatos, and used a baby wipe to blend!


The main image panel is stamped using the images from The Stamps of Life Easter4Him stamp set and coordinating Stamper’s Big Brush Pens (cadmium yellow, dark chrome yellow, pink madder, violet, and may green).

Thanks so much for stopping by,

Lawn Fawn Release Week: Daphne’s Closet Layout fit for a princess…

TiffsDaphnes2Hello Blogosphere!!!

10 Minute Craft Dash: Lawn Fawn


Hello Blogosphere!

This is my first time participating in the 10 Minute Craft Dash! I have to admit, this challenge had me a bit nervous and I thought about the steps I would take in executing this 10 minute craft-rosity, lol. And, you know what? I ended up making something entirely different than what I had in mind!

This week, Lawn Fawn is sponsoring the 10 Minute Craft Dash, so won’t you play along?

Here’s my card:
_MG_7715I used Lawn Fawn’s Sharp Backdrops, So Much To Say, and Belinda’s Borders!

This challenge was fun and now I have supplies ALL over my table! I think it will take double the amount of time it took to make this card to CLEAN up my mess 😉

Thanks for stopping by,
