Play Date Cafe & Lawn Fawn

It’s time to celebrate over at The Play Date Cafe!  We’ve run 100 challenges!  Wow, that’s a lot of challenges!  Today we have one of my favourite companies sponsoring us over at The Play Date Cafe …. Lawn Fawn (yay!) and we were really lucky to be able to choose a stamp set.  I chose the alphabet set, ‘quinn’s ABC’s’

I just love the large clear letters, but more importantly the way they are designed makes them so easy to line up.  I don’t know about you but I’ve always found alphabet stamps a great idea in theory but in practice it’s a whole other story!  These have been designed so that as long as you line up the bottom edge of the stamp you will stamp those letters perfectly every time, now that’s SO helpful!
I chose to use this stamp set with one of my recent birthday pressies, ‘Bon Voyage’.  We have some friends that are moving back to Australia and these stamps just seemed to work so well for their card.  I stamped the sentiment onto cryogen cardstock, and Copic coloured it.  I tied around two different colours of twine before attaching it to an orange cardstock panel.  This was then added to the card base with pop dots for dimension.  I then stamped the plane and the clouds, the plane was coloured in with Copics, the clouds I just added a pale blue line around the inside edge before attaching to the card.  I always LOVE playing with Lawn Fawn stamps so I was in my element with this week’s stamps!

We have some really fun and juicy colours for you to play with this week!
