Life is Good

I made these cards for two delightful little ones who would like to get some mail!  Since they are brother and sister, I thought they might like getting cards with the same little crab on them.  When I want to make quick and simple cards my go to stamps are Lawn Fawn.  These were fun to make.  I can't wait to hear what Paulina and James think of them :)

Lawn Fawn dies are my favorite.  You stamp the image and then line up the inside edge of the die with the outside edge of the easy, and then you cut and it's perfect, every time.  This set even has a die to cut out the sea gulls.  I didn't use them here but I cut out the tiniest one just to see if it would work and it came out perfect, too!  Amazing!!

I used Papertrey Ink Paper Basics - Stamper's Select White card stock for the pieces that I was stamping and coloring with Copics.  This card stock really helps the Copic ink to blend more easily.  It's the best one I've found.  

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a great weekend :)
