I'm in love! I'm in love with these stamps from Lawn Fawn.
Lawn Fawn appeared on my radar about 2 years ago but I never bought any of their stamps until recently. I tend to be fashionably late to a lot of things. And sometimes I wish I weren't. Their stamps are fantastic!
The first thing I always try with a new stamp is to see if they will work with Stampin' Up! ink since that is what I have the most of. Stampin' Up! is a dye ink like Distress Inks and Hero Arts Shadow inks. They work well with water but they aren't always friendly with acrylic stamps.
These stamps make perfect images with dye based inks. This card is made using Stampin' Up!'s Bermuda Bay (a color on its way back in), Cajun Craze and More Mustard (a retiring color). One of the sets is designed to create an interlocking background and is super easy to use. I got both of these at Two Peas in a Bucket. The stamps also work well with Staz On ink.
The sentiment on the card is from a very old SU! set called Alphabet Soup. I think this makes a good guy card.
Thanks for visiting today! Tomorrow I plan to have a video up with a little tip for making your own enamel embellishments. And this Saturday is National Scrapbooking Day so lots of crafty fun on the horizon.
