Two fun cards using "Say Cheese"

Hello again! I’ve been a busy card-making bee this week. Today I wanted to share the two cards I made last night using my newest Lawn Fawn Stamps, “Say Cheese”.
For this first one, I wanted to make a birthday card for my hubby using the CA-UTE Polaroid Camera and Picture stamps in the set. I thought of the sentiment (We really CLICK) early yesterday morning and had to keep it locked in my brain until I returned home from work (and dinner was done, kids in bed, etc...). I started the card off by (after cutting paper) inking the edges of the cardstock and card base with Ranger’s Worn Lipstick Distress Ink. It really complimented the colors well.

Then I paper pieced the camera (the camera, then the flas, windows, etc) and the polaroid picture using the new Sassafras Lass’ “Sweetly Smitten” line and popped it up with foamies. Isn’t the paper adorable, I just got it from 2Peas :D. I love the hearts, too sweet! Anyway, then I used Jessie’s ABCs and Sassafras’ letter stickers for the sentiment, at the last minute, I got the idea to add the “I {heart} you” sentiment coming out of the camera as well. I finished the card off with some more homemade crinkly ribbon (this one is Maya Mist in Turquoise & a little bit of Glimmer Mist’s sparkly green), and a heart pin from Maya Road.

For this next card, I used October Afternoon’s “Seaside” line for patterned paper, and used the Polaroid Pic as the image backdrop, and also the “Picture Perfect” sentiment from the Say Cheese Set. I also used Jessies ABCs to add to it and create my own sentiment “Hey have a Perfect Day”. The sweet birdie stamp is from Fly Free and the banner is Bannerific. I paper pieced them and added some rustic twine (with knots instead of bows) and hand drew the birdies “trail”.

Thanks for peeking. I have just begun playing with this set. I have so many ideas. A lot to do with scrapbooking!! Can’t wait to get them onto paper!!

Hope you have a lovely weekend!
