ABNH + Lawn Fawn Collaboration

Hello! This week over at A Blog Named Hero we're collaborating with Lawn Fawn.

I had the pleasure of meeting Kelly Marie earlier this year, and she is as sweet as her stamps are cute!

For my Hero Arts/Lawn Fawn mash-up, I made this:

Most people who know me know I don't "do" Christmas, so it's a personal challenge to use Christmas items to make non-holiday cards. Yes, I know it's October, but I love the new Peace Joy Love 6x6 paper pack, and I loooove that piece of green bookeh paper. *swoon* I used the love birds paper for the blue and green, knowing it was a perfect match. Gotta love 6x6 pads - they take all that guess-work out of putting patterned papers together.

I stamped the tree from And A Partridge in Hero Arts Soft Leaf, then stamped the trunk again in Cup O'Joe and the bird in Soft Pool, then fussy-cut all of it. Yes, all of it. I glued the bird and the trunk onto the tree, then stuck it down with dimensional adhesive.

Maybe I should have gone around the edge of the tree with my brown marker to give it a little more contrast. Hmmm ...

The sentiment is from one of the Hero Arts OWH sets. When it was all assembled, I went over the pears in the tree with my Gelly glitter pen.

Oh, and I was following a old sketch from The Paper Players:

Why not drop in at A Blog Named Hero and see what some of the other ladies have made? We'll be playing with Lawn Fawn all week!

Thanks for stopping by!
