Inspired by Nancy and Lawn Fawn


Nancy over at Happy Heart Studio  did a series of cards recently using a pretty little set from Lawn Fawn called "And a Partridge".  I fell in love with her cards and had to order the set.  It arrived Thursday so today I had some time to play.  I used Nancy's cards as inspiration

First off this card

Inspired by Nancy

I did some embossing with Copper EP onto some PP.  The card base is from a pad I picked up this week from Rosie's studio. 20 card bases with pre-printed Christmas borders for $3.59 ~ not bad value. 5 cards per design.

My next card was inspired by this one of Nancy's

Inspired by Nancy #2


I made the background by clear embossing the Hero Arts Envelope pattern and then did a resist technique using some Peeled Paint distress stain.   I made my little tag the same as Nancy did for her card.  I used another of the card bases in the pad and cut it to be 10.5cm x 10.5cm.  I added the faux stitches.

and finally (for today) I made a little scrapling with the left over card from the card above

Inspired by Nancy ~scrapling


I used some Weathered Wood distress ink, some Copics and Glossy Accents.

So a big thanks to Nancy for making such beautiful inspiring cards.  I feel like I've taken her class!  Something I would love to do someday!!!!

I'm sure I'll be making some more with this set as it's so sweet.

Ugg boots is not a title but they are really greatly famous all around the world because they are sensible within token and more comfy also. Specially "ugg boots" way to the Australian trunk which can be made out of sheepskin using significant as well as odd appears. Initially "[url=http://www.fubootss.com]ugg boots[/url]" will be slang for its "ugly". Because of its heavy sizes along with peculiar looks mainly because have been any dark i'm all over this style declaration. In addition, these boot tend to be comfort and ease and flexible than other footwear located in the typical market. bailey uggs Boots These days, these logo that is, will be of a united states firm.
