Whats Kraken?

Today I have a card using the Lawn Fawn Lovable Legends, only recently discovered Seven Hills Crafts who stock many American stamps so I filled my basket, obviously. Tim Holtz distress oxide background, hand stitched and glazed.  Cutting on my Silhouette, coloured with Promarkers.  This one glows in the dark, bubbles & the Kraken itself.  The tab is from the 'Lights Out' stamp set again from Lawn Fawn.  The embossing folder  is titled 'Pop Dotty' from Sara Davies Signature Collection, just for men.

Lovable Legends ...

I have been playing with the Lawn Fawn Loveable Legends stamp set along the their new Glow in the Dark embossing powder, unfortunately taking a photograph did not go well but if you see the 'big foot' prints on the Kraft card you can imagine how they look in the dark!
I have also been playing with the Tim Holtz Distress Oxides, great fun but I think I need a little more practice.  Coloured the lovely Kraken, Big Foot & Nessy using Promarkers, matting and layering cut on my Silhouette Cameo, a couple of clear dew drops, hand stitched, glazed & the little 'glow' tab is from Lawn Fawn also, stamp set called Lights Out.

Thanks for popping by, plenty of new goodies to play with so I hope it won't be long!

So pleased with these, love these stamps, so many elements. I have lots of new goodies and this is just the beginning.  So Lawn Fawn Year Seven Stamps, paper from Nitwit Collections, coloured with Promarkers, hand stitched and a couple of gems to finish.  I have made them as sliders, so one penny on the inside just for the weight, I don't want them to spin as you would expect and then foam tape for spacing.

Gnome-body loves you ...

I have a shaker frame card today (I think that is what it is called anyways)!  So cut the frame and front cover on my Silhouette, stamped the gorgeous Lovey Gnomes from Stamping Bella, coloured with Promarkers, you can't see it but the shaker has pink & red heart confetti and some lush sparkle gems.  Squiggly hand stitch for a change, pearls, some dies from a couple of the Doohickey Club kits, green card cut to look like grass, covered in the lovely green ribbon, heart charm to finish.

The inside has the sentiment included in the Lovey Gnomes; gnome-body loves you the way I love you.  I have cut a spiral pop up heart from the Silhouette Design Store.
