"Bright Side" paper: Lawn Fawn Inspiration week

February 23, 2012

Hey there, everyone!!  Welcome to Lawn Fawn's February inspiration week!  For the next few days we are going to be showcasing some of the new stamp sets, along with the new paper collection that Lawn Fawn released called "Bright Side".  And the paper is what we are sharing with you today!

I created this clean & simple, but still lovely shabby card for you.  I chose to use the papers in pink & aqua only, plus the amazing printed kraft cardstock.  If you are a lover of kraft in anyway...you are going to seriously love the Lawn Fawn version!!  Here is what I created:
"Hi There!" supplies:
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (smooth white) 
Paper: Lawn Fawn (Bright Side 6x6 pad: jump for joy, bright-eyed, smell the roses)
Doily: Wilton
Stamps: Lawn Fawn (Sophie's Sentiments set)
 Ink: Clearsnap (Donna Salazer Mixed Media: honey)
Ribbon: May Arts (pink) & Webster's Pages (bloomers)
Pins: Maya Road
Button: vintage craft supply
Dies: Papertrey Ink (heart circle, scalloped edge) & Spellbinders (circle)
Diecut Machine: Cuttlebug by Provo Craft 

Instructions:  Make card from smooth white cardstock.  Cut an aqua floral block.  Diecut a scalloped edge to a pink dotted paper strip, then adhere to the bottom of the aqua paper block.  Layer a doily and kraft circle to the aqua paper.  Diecut the heart circle accent from pink dotted paper, layer white cardstock underneath, then adhere to the middle of the kraft circle.  Adhere a strip of aqua bloomers over the seam.  Tie a bow from pink ribbon, and adhere to the right side of the bloomers.  Cut a banner edge to a cardstock strip, then stamp the sentiment to it.  Wrap around a leaf topped pin, then stick into the left side of the ribbon & trim on the card.  Add another pink pin, then accent with a flower button.  Adhere the entire block to the card front using foam adhesive.
