Scrappy Moms June Release - Day #2

Hey Everyone!! Thanks for checking back for Day #2 of the Scrappy Moms June Release.  I apologize for being a little delayed in this second post.  We had our 1st day of Daycare for Kirie on Monday and I was a little nervous how she would do, as she has never really interacted with other kids.  Low and behold....3.5 hours after dropping her I got a call from the staff letting me know she had a fever, not eating, and had been throwing up.  So needless to say, i've been tending to cuddly & little one :)

Enough small talk from me...Lets get onto the real reason why you guys are here! If you happened to miss my post on Friday, here is a look at the 2 new stamp sets that have been released:

Today I'm using the Monster Mania Stamp set, in a Non-Monster way :) I love using stamp sets for other uses other than their original intent.  Just shows how you can get more use out of your stamp sets.  I'm currently obsessed with the most recent Lawn Fawn Release, so I thought this was another great chance to use one of the stamp sets.  For my card, I created a one-layer card only using the "Love You S'more" Stamp set.

The whole background/scene for the card was created using some Tim Holtz Distress Inks and masking paper.  I first stamped the bear in memento tuxedo black ink and then masked him off, then stamped the hills and masked off the bottom portion.  Then went to town inking the night sky with tumbled glass, evergreen bough,  iced spruce and faded jeans.

I then removed the mask for the bottom portion, masked off the sky and began inking the grassy area in Mowed Lawn and Peeled Paint.

I then used the 2 different size stars in the stamp sets with some Unicorn White Ink to create the starry night.  While the ink was out, I also inked up the "Need a Hug?" sentiment from Monster Mania.  I wanted to keep the card pretty simple so after coloring the bear with copics, I tied some some twine at the bottom of the card.

And thats it for my card.  I hope that you guys have enjoyed this card, again I'm sorry for the delay in having it posted!

See you back here soon.

For my first project I'm showcasing the Ticket to Adventure Stamp Set.  I just recently got my hands on the Lawn Fawn "Life is Good" Stamp Set and knew that I wanted to use it.  So here is what I created below: 

I LOVE how this card turned out!!  The yellow paper is the perfect fit too with the sun-rays.  Its from the Lawn Fawn "Hello Sunshine" 6x6" paper pad.
