If I had to choose just ONE stamp company I could buy from, for the rest of my life, it would have to be Lawn Fawn. (Let me digress and say that it would be a horrible world to live in, where we didn’t have the choice of all the wonderful and amazing stamp designers out there today, and I am so glad that is not our reality today!)
Lawn Fawn’s images are always fun, adorable and quirky. Their sentiments have the most excellent puns – they never fail to make me smile.
The “Fairy Friends” stamp set is part of Lawn Fawn’s Spring 2016 release. When it came out, I had just quit my job and couldn’t justify a craft purchase. It stayed on my wish list till a few weeks back, so, when I got my hands on it, I HAD to make a card right away!
I used the “Meadow Border” die for the grass, also from Lawn Fawn, out of some scrap green cardstock. My images were colored in with Copic markers. I am still very much a beginner at using these markers, but once you get past the initial learning curve, it is easy to get good results, even if you aren’t a pro.
I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink to stamp my images (because it is a Copic-friendly ink – don’t use Versafine if you plan on coloring with Copics!) on Neenah Solar White 110lb cardstock. I then cut my images out with my Brother ScanNCut as I don’t have the coordinating dies for this set…yet.
I then used some polka dot pattern paper from American Crafts (not Lawn Fawn unfortunately – didn’t have any in my stash!) for the background and cut the sentiment (a die I received free from SimonSaysStamp.com in October 2017) out of gold mirror cardstock.
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a “fairy” good day!
