Thanks Friend! a Lawn Fawn card

I've got another Lawn Fawn card to show you today.  This is my third entry for the the Lawn Fawn CHA Winter 2013 challenge.
If you don't already own any Lawn Fawn stamps, I highly recommend getting some.  Not only are they adorable, the clear stamp material is top-notch and they stamp beautifully!
I used stamps from the Critters In The Forest set.  You can make so many cute scenes with this set!
I water colored the images with Distress Ink.  To keep the card simple, I backed it with red and green card stock and placed it onto a Kraft card stock base.  I recently purchased some small spiral clips to use to add ribbon in random places, when a bow might be too much.  I love 'em. :)
Thanks for looking!

HUGS - a mini Lawn Fawn card

 I've been on a mini card kick for a little while.  Mini cards and tags. They're just so cute and little!  I like how they emphasize the stamps... make them the center of attention. :)

 I made this one for the Lawn Fawn CHA Winter 2013 challenge.
It's definitely "mini" -- only the height of a Stickles bottle!

I stamped the letters from Quinn's ABC's and the birds from Making Frosty Friends directly onto watercolor paper and water colored them with Distress Inks.  Since the challenge asks for no patterned paper, I stamped the snow from the Let It Snow set onto coral card stock and heat-embossed it with white embossing powder.
Thanks for looking!

Hello, Foxy! - a Lawn Fawn tag

 Have you seen the fun challenge going on right now over at the {LAWN FAWN} blog?  It's awesome!  There's a chance to have a project shown in the Lawn Fawn booth at the 2013 Winter CHA and be featured in the Lawn Fawn catalog! Again, I say AWESOME!  :)

There are a few rules, so be sure to check out {THIS POST} for all of the juicy details. Oh, and there's a few Lawn Fawn gift certificate prizes, too.  I couldn't pass up the challenge.  This tag will be the first of hopefully many entries for me this week.

 I used the {CRITTERS IN THE FOREST} stamp set.
I love all of the images in this set, but I think this fox might be my favorite.

I stamped the images onto thick, watercolor paper and water colored them with Distress Inks.  I used some Nestabilites dies to create the inner circle, the scallop circle and the outside frame.  Everything is adhered with dimensional adhesive so it really stands out.  I placed everything onto a small Inkssentials Kraft tag (trimmed to be smaller in length) and finished it off with some shimmer ribbon.

I just saw that the new challenge posted on the {LAWNSCAPING} challenge blog is for tags!  Well, what do you know... I'm entering that challenge as well.  And so should you!

Go... be crafty.

{Oh So Naughty} card + video

The {Naughty or Nice} stamp set by The Greeting Farm is quickly becoming one of my favorites. :)  I decided to make a card using the sweet and sassy devilish gal for the current Farm Fresh Friday challenge over at TGF's {SPLENDID STAMPING} blog.

The theme is Twinkling Twilight/Fantasy.  I went the fantasy route, but used the signature red and black colors of Twilight.  She's too cute!

I've made a coloring demo and card assembly video for this, as well. You can watch it {HERE} or below.  My supply list can also be found down below.
