Happy Pi Day!

It's my son's favorite holiday...well, OK, his third favorite after his birthday and Christmas. Today is Pi Day. He asked if I would make a card for his math teacher. How could I say no?

First, I stamped the actual number onto cardstock using Lawn Fawn's Quinn's 123s and Aquamarine Archival ink. I then stamped the birds and word bubbles from the Lawn Fawn A Birdie Told Me set. Lawn Fawn just released a coordinating bunch of dies called Lawn Cuts so it took no time at all to assemble my card. I used Harold's ABCs (another Lawn Fawn set) to stamp 'Happy' and 'Day'. As for the Pi symbol, I got lucky. There She Goes Clear Stamps has an adorable set called Cutie Pi. The sentiment actually said You're a cutie Pi but I trimmed off the words. I colored with my Copics and then added some texture to my symbol using the Lawn Fawn Belinda's Borders set. Voila, a Happy Pi Day card. I thinks this calls for pie.

Thanks for visiting.

Here are two cards I created using the new Garden Critters release from Penny Black. I simply stamped the images, using Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Copic X-Press It Blending Card. I adhered my Copic-colored panels to card bases and attached Easter grass for texture.

I'm entering these in the current CASology Challenge. Week 34s theme is BUNNY.

Sending Hugs

Here's a quick card using the new Lawn Fawn 'Lawn Cuts' dies and Daphne's Closet papers. I have always been a huge fan of Lawn Fawn. With the release of these dies, I am more in love with this company than ever! I can't believe how easy it was to line up the stamped image with the die. My only complaint is that I don't have a Lawn Cuts die for every one of my Lawn Fawn stamps. Believe me, these dies are so worth it.

My card uses Lawn Fawn Critters in the Forest (critters), A Birdie Told Me (stamp set & die for word bubble) and So Much to Say (sentiment) as well as patterned paper from the new Daphne's Closet petite paper pack and Lawn Trimmings natural hemp cord. My tiny heart was created from a tiny die included in the A Birdie Told Me Lawn Cuts set.
