Lawn Fawn and WPlus9



After working out with a friend at the gym and taking Sherlock to the dog park, I had most of the day home by myself to play in my craft room.  I'm starting to collect polar bear stamps, since my daughter's future college mascot is a polar bear.  I used the polar bear in Lawn Fawn Critters in the Snow to make a few cards for my polar bear card stash.


I created a background using a heart stamp from Into the Woods and used foam tape to adhere my fussy cut my polar bear right on top.  I used my Copics to add a little shading to my bear.  (still don't know what I'm doing there).



I have to say that this next card did not really come out as I saw it in my mind--a bit busy for my taste.  But, I still think that my daughter will enjoy receiving it in the mail.  Another polar bear card for my stash.





I am entering both of these cards at Lawnscaping #98 where the challenge is to create a background with stamps and Simon Says Monday Winter Stamping.  I am also entering the first card at Simon Says Wednesday Have a Heart and Addicted to Stamps #128:  Holiday--my holiday is Valentines Day.


I started playing around with WPlus9 Quilt Prints, trying variations of colors and patterns with the colors and sketch from The Challenge #23.  I decided I liked all my variations--so I added a variety of Get Well type sentiments, some subtle textures, and now I have 4 more get well cards for my stash.









Thanks for Visiting

  17. What a wonderful thing to collect and I bet your daughter will love all the things you can create with all those polar bears! I have this Into the Woods stamp with the hearts and never thought to make a background with it, very clever and love all the wonderful white around the outside. So very happy to have you with us at ATSM this week!!

  18. You know I can spot your cards a mile away now? I was doing a Pintrest search for something and was scrolling through a bunch of cards and I could tell which ones are yours. You've developed a signature look. Love how you colored in your bear with Copics. Such a nice touch.

  20. Whoop whoop for stocking up the card stash! Love your polar bear cards - especially the first on with the hearts. And the get well cards are great! I need to do that more - make a bunch of different cards with one set at one time instead of getting bored after one card and digging around for a new set! LOL!

  28. Such a FABULOUS idea to use that little row of hearts as a background stamp. So cute! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Lawnscaping Challenges! :)

  29. I was admiring that heart background somewhere recently. I love that you are stocking up on polar bear cards. That second one has sort of a Warhol feeling to it with the bold colors. Your series of quilt cards is so neat. You get such a different look from them depending on which part you color in. Love your greeting/font pairings as well.
