Perfect Paper Crafting and Lawn Fawn Hop

Today the Perfect Paper Crafting Design Team is collaborating with the Lawn Fawn Design Team to bring you a blog hop loaded with inspiration!   There are prizes up for grabs so keep on reading! 

My card features the Lawn Fawn Snow Day stamp set.  


Notice my perfectly matted image panel?  I love to mat with black CS.  I think it really makes the image pop.   I used the Perfect Paper Crafting Perfect Layers Mini and Perfect Mat to mat my image panel with a 1/16" mat and then I used the Perfect Ruler to center the image on the white card base.  The centering ruler makes it so easy!    Don't forget to use the code KIM5% when you order your tools from Perfect Paper Crafting for an extra 5% off your entire order!  



I must admit....I love how my sky turned out!   I sponged on some Tim Holtz faded jeans, salty ocean, and tumbled glass distress inks.  First, I spritzed with water and let it dry.   I then layered the Simon Says Stamp Falling Snow stencil over it and pressed a damp cloth over it.  Finally I brushed a clear Wink of Stella pen over the sky  and quickly rubbed my finger over it to remove any brush marks and spread out the glitter,  



Ready to hop?!

Be sure to leave some love for the designs as you do to be eligible for the prizes!  Perfect Paper Crafting will be giving away 2 prizes (winner's choice) and Lawn Fawn will be giving away one stamp set and one 6x6 paper pad of their choice to one lucky winner!  

The hop will run through October 3rd.  The Lawn Fawn Designers will be posting their work on the Lawn Fawn Blog each day so be sure to check back!  

Lawn Fawn- everyday

  5. BEAUTIFUL card Kim!!!
    LOVE sky and tree lined rolling hills, LOVE the pretty sentiment and black matting, LOVE the balance of your panel on the front of the card too, it looks so much nicer than in the middle ( ... like I normally do and I'm changing that from today).
    THANK YOU for sharing your CREATIVE INSPIRATION :)

  13. There is nothing like perfection when it comes to making Christmas cards! The black makes sure does make everything pop but if it were not for perfect measuring the card would look amateurish.
