Beep Boop Birthday

Hi there! I’m here to share a birthday card featuring Lawn Fawn stamps and dies.

image

I used the new Scripty Sayings stamp set to create the background using various inks (mostly Papertrey Ink). Then, I Copic colored one of the cute little robots from the  Beep Boop Birthday stamp set.

image

I die cut a circle from the front panel and used Peacock Feathers Distress ink to create a subtle background behind this cheery bot.

I think I have finally found my style in card making to be Clean and Simple with the occasional Distress ink messy goodness:).

Well that’s all for today, thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

We belong together

Hi everyone… Hope your week is going well. Today, I wanted to post a card that I am IN LOVE with. Of course it’s because the subject matter is my favorite food, SUSHI! :) I’m using the Lawn Fawn stamp set called The Way You Roll.

image

It’s one of my absolute favorite Lawn Fawn sets of all time! So stinkin’ cute.

image

I pulled the sentiment from the Lawn Fawn Milk and Cookies stamp set. I thought it was fitting for sushi and soy sauce. :) I am really in love with one of the newest Distress inks Cracked Pistachio, so I blended it onto the card for the bottom of the circle image. After stamping out the bottle of soy sauce and sushi, I colored them with Copic markers and die cut them with the coordinating dies.

image

I cut a second white cardstock panel and die cut a circle out of the center to showcase my cuties. I curved the sentiment to match the edge of the circle before stamping it onto the panel. I then popped it up using foam tape to create some dimension.

I die cut a few hearts with the Lawn Fawn Hearts die, colored them with distress inks and added some Wink of Stella clear glitter and glossy accents.

Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY CRAFTING!

Lawn Fawn + Distress Ink= AWESOME

Hey guys! Today’s card share is a card that I made with the most recent Lawnscaping Challenge in mind, Distress!

image

Who isn’t in love with Distress Inks? …. Really… Name one person..lol. Well I am a total Distress ink nut.. And will find  any way possible to use them on a card:) For this card, I didn’t have to find a reason because it was the challenge. Yay!

image

Anyway, I decided to play with this Ink “Smooshing” technique that Laura Bassen has somehow perfected. I put down a couple of distress inks straight from the pad onto my nonstick craft mat and spritzed a few sprays of water. Then, I “smooshed” my watercolor cardstock panel down onto the ink in different random directions until I was happy with the look.

image

I then used the new Scripty Happy Birthday die to die cut along the bottom of the panel. I put blue foil paper from the DCWV Foil stack behind the negative of the image and aligned it to recreate the original shape.

A few more splatters and a couple of Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear sequins finished off the card. Thanks for stopping by and Happy crafting!

Monster HUGS!

Hello everyone! I have been a busy bee in my craftroom playing with all of my recently acquired Lawn Fawn goodies. Today I have a card to share using Lawn Fawn Monster Mash stamp set and the new Scripty Hugs die. I had so much fun making this card.

image

The first thing I wanted to do was play with my Faber Castell gelatos. I recently picked up the tropical set and was dying to try them out. I scribbled my gelatos onto a piece of watercolor cardstock in rainbow order and blended them with a water brush. I did this over the entire piece so I would have plenty of real estate to choose where I was going to diecut the word HUGS.

image

Quick tip: If you are gonna take the time and effort to pull out any mixed media, such as gelatos,watercolor paints or sprays, go ahead and create several different backgrounds in one sitting. I found that I had a lot more fun just creating and not making the background to match a specific themed card. I made about 7 different card panels and then drew inspiration from the designs and colors. So FUN!

image

I copic colored the cute monster, trying my best to make him look hairy! Lol. Don’t know if I succeeded, but I sure had fun. What a cute stamp set. I added a few Pretty Pink Posh sequins to finish off the card.

Well, that’s all for today. I will try to post a few more of my creations over the next few days, somehow life gets in the way of my blogging. Funny how that happens. ;)

Thanks for stopping by, HAPPY CRAFTING!

Craft haul and Easter shaker cards

Hello crafty peeps! Happy Monday!

Today, I am sharing a craft haul video I made late last week. Joann’s had a FANTASTIC 50% off sale on ALL Scrapbooking and papercrafts 3/1-3/8. So I made a couple of trips:) Enjoy!

Also, am entering the current Lawnscaping Challenge “Dots and Stripes”. I love designer challenges, I don’t know why I don’t enter more often… So fun!

image

Here are the last two cards I made out of a set of four for Easter.

I am really happy how they all turned out. I’m really loving the seed beads I have recently acquired. If you love shaker cards..like most of us… You have to try adding seed beads to your shaker element! It amplifies the fun of the whole shaking part:)

imageimage

imageimage

I used Lawn Fawn’s Lets Polka patterned paper and dry embossed the base of the card with various embossing folders. One of my favorite embossing plates of all time is called Linen by Papertrey Ink, which is subtle but gives just enough texture for added interest.

image

Thanks for joining me today, I also have craft haul videos on my YouTube channel if you wanna check out more.

Hope everyone has a wonderful week and HAPPY CRAFTING! :)

Swing into Spring Day 3

Hey guys! I’m back today with another spring card using the new Lawn Fawn set called Eggstra Special Easter. I made another shaker card, but this time using the Easter basket image from the set. I thought it looked kinda plain by itself, so I added a little bunny from Lawn Fawn’s Snow Day stamp set holding the side of the basket. How cute is he?

image

The shaker element was made with Papertrey Ink’s tag sale #8 die. It wasn’t  made to be a shaker die, but I thought, why not? And it turned out great! I encourage you to look at your dies differently and use them in more than one way. It keeps card making interesting and fun.. Don’t ya think?

image

Well, here’s the finished card. I’m off to make more!:) Thanks for stopping by and always HAPPY CRAFTING!

Swing into Spring Day 2

Hello crafty friends! Today I have a shaker card to share using the new Lawn Fawn stamp set Eggstra Special Easter. I absolutely adore this set!

image

Ever since I got this in the mail I haven’t been able to put it down. Today’s card features the chocolate bunny image with the adorable sentiment ” You’re EARRESISTABLE”… How cute is that?!

image

I wanted all the focus to be on the shaker, so for the background I simply embossed a panel of white PTI cardstock with the Chicken Wire Cuttlebug embossing folder. I think it ties in the theme of Easter nicely. I then stamped the bunny image in Versamark ink on a piece of PTI dark chocolate cardstock and embossed with white embossing powder. I stamped the image again on white cardstock and colored in the bow and ear with Copics so that I could paper piece those parts onto the bunny.

image

I die cut the Papertrey Ink Tag Sale #8 die out of Lawn Fawn’s Lets Polka paper to create my shaker window. I added seed beads from Joann’s, Martha Stewart iridescent heart glitter and flat sequins from Maggie Holmes to the inside of the shaker. Can I say just how much I LOVE SEED BEADS! They create so much more movement and sound than just sequins by themselves. My niece and nephew are going to love shaking this thing!

That’s all for today, I will be back tomorrow with another spring themed card…

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting! :)
