Poppin' up Flowers when Helmar meets Lawn Fawn...

Hey, everyone!

It may be the end of the week, but we are definitely not losing steam as the Blog Swap week between Helmar and Lawn Fawn stamps continues!


Hey everyone!  When I saw that Lawn Fawn was a preferred partner with Helmar, I knew that something super fun was in the works!   I have a few friends on the Lawn Fawn DT and the girls there could not be nicer.   Not to mention that as clear stamps go, Lawn Fawn is TOP NOTCH in quality and you get a fantastic imprint/image every time!


I got two fun sets from Lawn Fawn, Critters in the Burbs and Judy's Blooms.   When I saw the sentiment, "YAY!" in one of the sets, I immediately thought "end of school year....YAY!"  So, I'm giving this card to my daughter as she just completed 5th grade and her and I are about to embark on her "5th grade graduation" trip to Washington DC this Sunday.  We are VERY excited, although Im a little nervous to be chaperoning a bunch of 11 year olds, LOL!!!!


I began by assembling my card and then stamping the flowers where I wanted to position them on my card.  I LOVE this big, amazing flower in the set so I wanted to paper piece it using multiple layers andHelmar Zap Dots.




Once my layers were cut and ready to go, I assembled them and adhered them to my card.  Last but not least, I used some Robin's Nest dewdrops (another preferred partner with Helmar, as a matter of fact!) and Helmar Gemstone Glue to adhere them.   


I LOVE this glue- it dries SUPER fast and also dries CLEAR. Once my ribbon and button were tied, I stamped the "yay!" sentiment and we are good to go! 


Whatcha think?  I hope you've enjoyed my card today and just have to tell you about ALL the fun Helmarhappenings as today concludes our Blog Swap week but there are still prizes to be had, so make sure you "like" both Helmar AND Lawn Fawn on Facebook and be sure to visit the Lawn Fawn Blog as well!


Oh-and I'm on the Helmar DT blog today too so please go over and say hi!  We would LOVE to see you comment over there!


Thanks so much to Kelly Marie, owner of Lawn Fawn, and Tracy for putting this together for us!  We all had a blast and I've been LOVING all of the combined inspiration from our DT and theirs!   Hope you all have a WONDERFUL weekend!
xoxo,
