Bokeh Best Fishes…..


Hello!  I’m back today with another card made using the fab ‘Fintastic Friends’ stamps and dies from Lawn Fawn. I stamped the bokeh background using ‘Let’s Bokeh’,  again by Lawn Fawn, and then didn’t know what to do with it!  I thought the circles looked like bubbles  and then that thought turned to fish and voila!  This is the outcome!


Here’s what else I used: The following products from Lawn Fawn – Stitched Circle Die, Everyday Sentiment Banner Die, papers from ‘Beachside’. Memento inks in Summer Sky, Bahama Blue and Tuxedo Black.  Versa Magic in Cloud White and Encore! Ultimate Metallic in Gold. MFT Die-namics – Inside and Outside Diagnol Stitched Square Die. I think the fish paper clip was from The Range and black cardstock from my stash.  Spectrum Noirs to colour.

Well that’s all from me for this week – another week closer to Christmas!  I scheduled this post last week so now I will be enjoying a week away with the family as it’s half term.  Hope you have a fun weekend whatever you’re doing, take care and thanks so much for stopping by today 🙂

‘Best Fishes’ Part 2!

Best Wishes 1


Hi there!  I’m back today with a different card made using: Lawn Fawn’s Fintastic Friends stamps and dies, Lawn Fawn Striped Backdrop Die, twine, Spectrum Noirs, Spellbinders Circle Dies and papers by Lawn Fawn and Craft Asylum.

I know that I have used the backdrop die the same way as yesterday’s card – and the other cards that will be featured this week are the same – but I just liked using it like that!  I’ll be more adventurous in the future!

I’ll be back tomorrow with a card featuring Lawn Fawn’s Party Animals set – another favourite of mine!  I hope you’ll be able to pop in again for a peek!  Thanks for stopping by today, take care – Karen 🙂

‘Best Fishes’ Lawn Fawn…

Best Fishes 1

Hello and a happy Monday to you!  Recently I bought the Striped Backdrop Die from Lawn Fawn thinking it would be one that I would use quite a bit.  Then, when it arrived I wasn’t so sure!  However, that thought was soon expelled from my mind when I started having a play with it!  All cards featured on my blog this week will feature this die and to be honest a real easy straight forward way of using it!  I’ve seen people using 2 of these together to make a trellis which is a great idea but one that I have yet to put into practice!  So, starting with today’s card, I have used Lawn Fawn’s Fintastic Friend’s stamps and dies, Lawn Fawn – Stitched Circle Die, black cardstock, Lawn Fawn cardstock, Lawn Fawn – Let’s Polka in the Dark paper, Spectrum Noirs and of course the Striped Backdrop Die.

Fintastic Friends…

Best Fishes

Happy Friday!!!  I just thought I’d pop in with this card that I made before Christmas using Lawn Fawn’s Fintastic Friends stamps and dies.  I water-coloured them using my Spectrum Aqua Markers. I hadn’t used them for a while so it was nice to get them out for a play 🙂 I also used memory Box Stitched Rectangle Dies, Kaisercraft Banner Die, patterned paper is by Craft Asylum called Meadow Sweet and I used foam pads to give the fishy pals some dimension 🙂

I hope you have a great weekend, thanks for stopping for a peek 🙂  Take care – Karen 🙂
