Lawn Fawn - April Projects

Hey everyone! Here are my projects for Lawn Fawn for this month!  We were to use the "Handmade with Love" sentiment stamp and create a layout using the "Bright Side" collection

SUPPLIES: White Card Stock & Kraft Card Stock by Bazzill, Handmade with Love stamp by Lawn Fawn, Black ink by Staz-on, and Alcohol inks by Ranger.

For this card, I took a block of white cardstock sized to 8" x 6" and folded it in half. I then took 7 different alcohol inks and dripped them down the front of the card. These dry fairly quick and while they were drying I stamped out the "Handmade with Love" sentiment on Kraft card stock using black Staz-on ink and cut the sentiment out. I punched out a circle from white card stock and adhered the sentiment to it. I then used foam tabs to pop up the circle and adhered it to the front of the card! This would be a great card to make multiples of since minimal ink was used and you can create as many of the stamped sentiments as needed!

For this layout, I cut out strips of paper of different widths from the Bright Side collection. I pulled out the browns, grays, & oranges from the collection. On each of the Kraft colored strips, I stamped the word "Love" from the "Handmade with Love" stamp using brown and red ink.  I actually cut my stamp apart so that I had the word "love" apart from the rest of the phrase!  I stitched down each strip of paper using two different kind of stitches. Then, I placed my photos in a staggered row towards the bottom part of the layout. I used foam tabs for dimension to adhere them down. I placed my title in a vertical row on one of the orange strips of paper. Lastly, I punched the hearts from the corresponding paper and placed those on top of the strips and used foam tabs on some of them. I layered some of the hearts and placed a wood veneer embellishment on top.
