(2020 c034) LF Magic Iris Birthday


I had so much FUN playing with my good crafting friend’s new Lawn Fawn Magic Iris,  and the Lawn Fawn Magic Iris Add-on.  She is so dear to let me come over and craft and use some of  her tools!!!  I have a lot of Lawn Fawn stamps and dies, but not this one!  I have watched many tutorials on putting these together and today I followed Jennifer McGuire’s Magic Iris Video HEREI especially appreciate her tip to use a little tape to hold the “sausages” in place while fiddling with it!  For the tiny critters and little balloons I used Lawn Fawn Coaster Critters and the elephant is from Lawn Fawn Elphie Selfie.  The frame that represents a red balloon is cut with My Favorite Things Inside & Out Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics die.  Inside of the open Iris I BROUGHT BACK AN OLD stamp set from Avery Elle that is discontinued called Thanks A Bunch.  The Happy Birthday was the perfect size to fit!  See the progression of opening the iris in the photos below, Istenciled clouds on background, circle insert and sausages.  Stencil from Close To My Heart which must also be discontinued.

Finally, on the inside I added another critter and balloons.   I BROUGHT BACK my Copics  and another old die that I have had forever for the sentiment: Lawn Fawn Happy Birthday Border.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
