For the butterfly ATC, I was doing a Oh Canada! theme, and the flourish and butterfly stamp are Quietfire Design. However, I didn't have a Quietfire stamp that was short enough (height wise) to fit in the space for the sentiment, so I used LawnFawn's "Shine Brightly" sentiment from the Lunar Lights set.. Let me tell you, I was very impressed with the clear, crisp impression of the LawnFawn
stamp. I did wonder if I was just lucky, or if it was really as great as the first stamping. I didn't take long to find out.
For the second ATC, I was making my Christmas ATCs, and I wanted to paper piece my present. I took the box from Lunar Lights, and stamped it on patterned paper. It stamped like a dream. And the bow that came with the Lunar Lights set did well too. Safe to say, I'll be buying more LawnFawn in the future. With this ATC, I stamped the star from Hero Arts in Shabby Shutters Distress Ink randomly over the grey/beige cardstock. I layered a piece of DCWV cardstock from "The Four Seasons" over top, then I foam mounted my paper pieced present on the snowflake cardstock. I stamped "Noel" (Unknown company) in the bottom right hand corner.
