lawn fawn video Thursday – be a deer while making a card!

My computer is back! My computer is back! I am so happy!!!

I had a video saved, so I had to post it right away. It was driving me nuts knowing it was stuck on the computer! In this video I make a Mother’s Day card with background stamps, distress inks, and buttons (oh, my!) I hope you enjoy it!
Here are some photos of the card:

Thank you so much for watching!

A manly birthday?

Isn’t it just so hard to make cards for men?! I have such a hard time! I recently picked up this a muse golf bag stamp to help in my manly card making. My husband, dad and father-in-law (FIL) are all golf nuts, so I know I will get good use of this stamp! Do you think they will notice that they always get cards with a golf set on them? 🙂

This Sunday was my FIL’s birthday. We went to Disney with my husband’s family which was a lot of fun! Here is the card I brought to him at Disney:
I colored in the golf bag with copics. I like the avocado green and blue combo!
Ahh, my favorite birthday stamp! It is from Kim Hughes. The background stamp is from CHF which is really great for man cards and kids cards!
I used nestabilities to cut out the rectangles. I love that embossed border!
Here is a final shot. Oh, how I love foam adhesive!

So, have you guys made any good “manly” cards lately? I would love to see them! Link to them in the comments, and I will make a man-card post! It will be great inspiration for all of us with Father’s Day coming up!

Thank you so much for visiting!

Have an amazing day,

PS. I just found out my computer is coming home tomorrow!! Yay!!!!! 🙂

Mariposa thank you

I bought this really cool Making Memories set that has die cuts and buttons and embellishments. The set makes me really happy. It’s full of so many goodies! The first thing I had to use was one of the butterflies.

Isn’t pretty?
I used glue dots to attach the ribbon. I do this often because of a couple of reasons:
1. I don’t tie bows all that well
2. I hoard my ribbon and therefore want to use as little as possible
3. I’m cheap and don’t want to waste ribbon going all the way around the card (lame, I know!)

To give it a “wrapped around” look I have about half an inch that goes around the card base and is adhered with glue dots also. I plan to keep the nice people at glue dots in business :).

The background is a floral scrapblock from CHF. I also used a scallop punch on the bottom edge. Why? Because I can’t help myself!
The butterfly has a foam adhesive square on the top part of the butterfly and a glue dot at the bottom so that it looks popped off of the “thank you” label but is still secured to the card base.

Computer update (I know you guys were so worried! haha!): It is being overnighted to the computer hospital. I hope they can fix it tomorrow!

Thanks so much for visiting!

Have an amazing day,
