My Crackling Campfire distress oxide ink finally arrived along with the new Lawn Fawn Let It Shine papers! I knew I wanted to create a sunset scene with my Cloudy stencil and a few different inks. I am playing along with the "anything goes" Lawn Fawn challenge over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge and linking up with the current Lawnfawnatics "awesome autumn" challenge for the fall colours that I used!

Today I finished putting together some cards for my cousins (and some for Lane & Meadow) to congratulate them on their new homes. I used the stitched square frames dies from Close To My Heart to set my scene and then used papers and cardstock from Lawn Fawn.

It's back-to-school in BC this week and I'm feeling for all of my teacher friends and colleagues during this uncertain time. Our nephew is starting kindergarten this fall so I wanted to make him a special card to go along with the book we got him - The Pigeon HAS to go to School by Mo Williams (read this book - it's hilarious!). 

 I was recently very inspired by Kelly Lunceford's post on The Greetery blog with these gorgeous sunflowers. I loved the idea of using yellow cardstock and adding detail with distress inks. 

 My talented Auntie Karen greatly inspired me recently to make this slimline card and create a tree canopy using the stitched cloud dies from Lawn Fawn. I used the Birch Trees dies on some woodgrain cardstock to make the trunks of my trees and stencilled in some clouds using Speckled Egg distress oxide ink.
