Fawntastic holiday

Hello Everyone,

I am back today with a project I made using some gorgeous Lawn Fawn goodies. I just simply adore their style, so no holiday is complete without some Lawn Fawn crafting! I made a card with 2 coordinating tags as I love to match the tags I use on a present with the card I give.

I started with stamping the little critters from the Say what? Christmas critters, coloured them with Copics and die cut them with the coordinating dies. I also added some trees from the Winter skies stamp set as they match perfectly.

Then I die cut a Peekaboo backdrop frame 2 times from white cardstock and layered them together. I cut some stitched hillside borders (using the negative part of the die cut I got slopes without stitching) from white glitter cardstock and also a few pine leaves with a great die set from Newton’s Nook Designs (Pines and holly).

When I assembled the card, I placed a blue gingham patterned paper in the background and stamped the sentiments on it with black ink. As a finishing touch I used some clear shimmer pen, a black glaze pen on the eyes and glossy accents to emphasize some details. I also added a few jewels from Lucy’s Little Things to the trees as ornaments.

For the tags I used the new Say what? Gift tags dies and finished them with white chunky twine from Doodlebug.

For my card today I chose Lawn Fawn Winter skies stamp set from the newest release. I stamped and coloured the polar bears along with some pine trees and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

To set the scene I created a purple night sky on Bristol Smooth cardstock usink Distress inks: Milled Lavender, Dusty Concord and Black Soot. I added water sprinkles to it and also splattered it with a white acrylic paint for the snowy look. When it was all dry, I white heat embossed the sentiment on the top.

I die cut some stitched hillside borders from white glitter cardstock and layered it over the distressed background. Then I added all the scene elements with liquid glue.

I also added a die cut Merry Christmas sentiment (Merry Christmas Line border die), and framed the card with a doubled up Reverse Stitched Scallop Rectangle window.

Halloween Card Series 2018 – Day 3

halloween_2018_FB

Hello Everyone,

How do you like my Halloween Card Series so far? I wish you enjoyed Day 1 and Day 2. Today I brought you a long card, which I have never done before. I usually stick to the standard A2 size, but I could not decide on which images to use from the Lawn Fawn Costume Party stamp set, that is why I needed a larger format 😀

Lawnfawnatics39_zsm01

The card itself is very simple. I stamped and coloured the images with Copic markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

Lawnfawnatics39_zsm03

Then  I made my card base from white cardstock and cut a strip of black glitter paper from the Lawn Fawn Autumn Sparkle Cardstock pack. I matted it with green and purple cardstocks for interest and stamped almost all the sentiments from the Costume Party stamp set in one line using black ink.

Lawnfawnatics39_zsm06

I popped up the images with 3D foam tape, embellished them with a Tonic Aqua Shimmer pen and glossy accents here and there. It turned out so cute! These images are adorable!

I carved out time to say…

Hello Everyone,

We have a beautiful Fall here in Budapest, I enjoy the weather so much with all the pretty autumn colours. The trees look magnificent with their colourful crowns. All the yellows, oranges inspired me to create this Lawn Fawn card today afternoon, while my boy had a nap and my daughter was watching a cartoon.

Lawnfawnatics38_card2_zsm01IG

I started with stamping a bunch of images from the Pick of the patch and the Hedgehugs stamp sets. I coloured them with Copic markers and used their coordinating dies to cut them out.

Lawnfawnatics38_card2_zsm05

Then I made a Distress Ink blended background on Distress Watercolour cardstock. I used Scattered Straw, Wild Honey, Carved Pumpkin and Gathered Twigs. I added some water and diluted distress ink splatters for more interest. I stamped the sentiment on this panel also using a brown ink.

Lawnfawnatics38_card2_zsm03

For the scene I had in my head, I needed a few more elements: a Spooky fence from brown cardstock, a Happy Fall sentiment from white (I added distress ink after die cutting) and a Reverse Stitched Scallop Rectangle frame from special  metallic cardstock.

Lawnfawnatics38_card2_zsm04

After assembling the scene I added clear shimmer to some of the pumpkins with a Tonic Aqua shimmer pen. I also emphasized the carved pumpkins with a black glaze pen. A touch of glossy accent I added to the stems and scattered a few sparkling orange and dark brown mini sequins across the card.

I will upload this project to the Lawnfawnatics #38 challenge Awesome Autumn.

World Cardmaking Day

Hello Everyone,

Yesterday was a special day for all card makers and I wanted to celebrate in style. I just went through my descent Lawn Fawn stash as it was the brand which hooked me into cardmaking. The Our friendship grows set was one of the first ones I purchased and it is a love forever.

Lawnfawnatics38_zsm01IG

So for today’s card I stamped and coloured the sunflowers and some leaves using Copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

Lawnfawnatics38_zsm02

I selected some patterned paper from the new Knit Picky Fall paper pad. I die cut one of them with a Reverse Stitched Scalloped rectangle die to create a frame. I layered dark brown and another patterned paper under it.

Lawnfawnatics38_zsm03

I also die cut the word Thanks from brown cardstock using the Lawn Fawn Fancy box die set. I mounted the sunflowers using 3D foam squares and the leaves I adhered flat, just as the sentiment.

Lawnfawnatics38_zsm04

To make this very simple card special, I added a lot of dark brown prills to the middle of the flowers using Ranger Multi Matte Medium adhesive. I love the texture it gives!

I will upload this project to the Lawnfawnatics Challenge #38: Awesome Autumn.

I wish you enjoyed today’s post and you also managed to craft yesterday. See you soon with more projects.

Happy Fall

Hello Everyone,

I am currently struggling with a nasty flu, but managed to pull together a fall card for the Lawnfawnatics Challenge.

Lawnfawnatics36_zsm01

I wanted to create a fall background scene for my squirrels, which just arrived this week! I had to use them right away. I went through my older Lawn Fawn sets and I found more squirrels in the Cheery Christmas set along with tiny cute acorns, so I coloured them with Copics as well. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

Lawnfawnatics36_zsm05

For the background I did a lot of die cutting. First the Stitched Hillside backdrop die from kraft cardstock and some grassy hillside borders from green cardstock. I adhered these to the slope cuts, the curves match perfectly!

Lawnfawnatics36_zsm03

I cut the tree trunks from dark brown and the tree foliage from some fall colours. I even used a brushed gold one. The Stitched cloud backdrop die I cut from vanilla cardstock to make it special. The Stitched rectangle frame I cut from dark green.

Lawnfawnatics36_zsm04

As the scene is very busy, I adhered everything flat and the sentiment (Pick of the Patch) I stamped directly on the cloudy backdrop. I added some fall coloured sequins to the trees, a bit of white gel pen details and glossy accents to the tops of the acorns.

Lawnfawnatics36_zsm02

I will submit this to the Lawnfawnatics Challenge #36 Mood board.

Mermaid shaker ft. Lawn Fawn – Under the sea Card Series #1

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to the Under the sea Card Series! My first card is an underwater shaker inspired by 2 challenges: the Lawnfawnatics #34 My favourite place and the first card challenge at Pink and Paper (underwater shaker).

Here is what I came up with:

UTScardseries_LF_01IG

I started with stamping and colouring a bunch of images from different Lawn Fawn sets (Year 6, Gleeful gardens, Elphie Selphie, Mermaid for you and Critters in the sea). I used Copics for colouring and the coordinating dies to cut them out.

UTScardseries_LF_04

Then I created an alcohol inked background with a felt applicator and blending solution. I love these blue-aqua colours so much! I also made a yellowish piece which I die cut with a Stitched hillside border die to be the sand.

UTScardseries_LF_03

When assembling the scene, I adhered some of the images inside the shaker and I left some for outside to make sure thy are not covered when shaking. I also made the dolphin move by attaching it to the background with a very thin thread. It shakes inside but not too much, so it will not get lost in the bottom of the card.

UTScardseries_LF_05

The shaker part is a white stitched rectangle frame with a piece of acetate adhered to it. I stamped the sentiment with black Staz-on ink on  the acetate itself. I put thin strips of foam tape around the frame and filled it with clear sequins, seed beads, silver hexagon sequins (Honey Bee Stamps) and chunky glitter confetti (Studio Katia). Before closing the shaker I also glued some of the hexagon sequins to the background to ensure that not all falls down to the bottom when the card is standing.

UTScardseries_LF_02

When the shaker was sealed, I adhered the rest of the images on the acetate, added some Tonic Aqua Shimmer to the seashell and the balloon and covered them with glossy accent. I made a little video for you to see the shaking (I am sorry that it is poor quality, I will work on that for the next time)

 

I will upload this project to the Lawnfawnatics #34 Challenge and to the Pink and Paper Card Challenge too.

I hope you like my card and will come back tomorrow for more underwater inspiration.

See you,

Zsofi
