The DT are showcasing Lawn Fawn Stamps this week and if you have them we would like to see them, but you don't HAVE to to join in :-)

For my card I used a few stamps from the Lawn FawnJust My Type’ set, very little colouring with ‘C 00, C o1 and Co3 Copics. I stamped the image twice, coloured and cut one out and then layered with pop dots. I inked the edges with Tumbled Glass Distress ink and added some glossy accents to the dial. The papers are Echo Park from the ‘Walk In the Park’ pack, I thought the swirly design ‘echoed’ the twirly cable !! :-) I added a few dots of Star Dust Stickles to a few of the dots on the spotty paper,, as you know stickles are mandatory on my cards !! LOVE STICKLES !! The curly flex edging was made using a die that I bought at the NEC and I used a Martha Stewart scalloped border punch too. The sentiments and little thumb tack are all from the same Lawn Fawn set and I added a Flattened Chrome cap with a Vintage Typewriter Image and topped with an Epoxy Dot. I do love these Bottle Inc products ,, fab embellies :-)

I finished with a couple of Stamping Bella ‘Coal’ dots, the one I have linked to is 10mm but the ones I used are 5mm, the smaller ones will be back in stock soon. I love these ,, they are slightly glittery and I think are really cool embellies especially for masculine cards ,,, and being a Coal Miner’s daughter I HAD to have them Smile

Thanks for looking , Sarah, our fabulous Designer in the Spotlight and the DT have all made some amazing cards for your inspiration so hop on over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge to see them Smile

Don't forget that we still have the Children's Challenge running too. That one finishes next Monday so there is still a few days to let your kids loose in your crafty corners :-)
