I am Rooting for You!

Hi Everyone! Alix here today with my first Design Team post. I would like to thank Vanessa giving a newbie like me a chance to showcase what I am passionate for. I am nervous and excited at the same time since this is my first time being a DT member, but I believe that I will have an amazing time hanging out with all of you on every Tuesday.


Valentine's day is about 5 weeks away. I am trying to jump out of traditional red and pink color tones and dive into something non-traditional scene with some Spring breeze. I pulled out all my stamps that related to Valentine or love, and this stamp from Lawn Fawn Rooting For You caught my eyes.
My first step in creating these cards was stamping multiples of all stamp images from this stamp by using Altenew dye ink mini cubes and used my MISTI stamping tool so I could easily re-stamp an image if it didn't turn out perfectly. I hand cut all images and assembled them. It was not a time saving process if you don't have coordinating dies.



I went ahead putting all pieces aside and started to prepare my box card base by die cutting Lawn Fawn Scalloped Box Card Pop-up. Then I pulled out my all time favorite Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink pad in Picked Raspberry and Cracked pistachio to build the background colors using ink blending technique. To create the soil for all veggies, I cut it with Lawn Fawn Simple Stitched Hillside die and inked with Tim Holtz Distress ink in Vintage Photo. And to create the background grass, I used Lawn Fawn Grassy Hillside die and inked with Tim Holtz Distress ink in Cracked Pistachio and Twisted Citron.I love love sequins. How could I make a card without them?! I chose Pretty Pink Posh Easter Sequins Mix to decorate part of card base. And just like that, a cute box card is here for you!



If you haven’t decide what to made for your Spring or Valentine's card. I highly recommend you to try this Lawn Fawn Rooting For you stamp set. It was so much fun to play with these cutesy characters.

Thanks for spending time with me today, and I will see you again on next Tuesday! Have a wonderful day!

    1. Thanks Denise for leaving me a comment. I owned it for more than a year and haven’t touched until last week. I suggest you to stamp a while batch of these critters so you could make multiple cards. That would be time saver😉
