It was quite a busy weekend here, but I managed to squeeze in some me-time and coloured some cute critters from Lawn Fawn. I immagined a scene where ducks organise a picnic – I was totally inspired by Peppa the pig, which my kids watch every day at breakfast.
So I looked through my really big Lawn Fawn stash – which was a pleasure on its own – and selected stamp sets for my scene: Rub-a-dub-dub, Critters in the forest, Baked with love, Happy summer, Make lemonade, Butterfly kisses, Christmas dreams and So smooth. I coloured everything with Copic markers and cut out with the coordinating dies.
Then I took an aqua patterned paper from the Watercolor wishes paper pad as my background, and cut grass from a green toned one. I also die cut a Stitched Scalloped Rectangle frame from white woodgrain cardstock.
I assembled the picnic scene and stamped a sentiment from the Rub-a-dub-dub stamp set using black and Merman inks.
I adhered everything flat except for the mummy duck and the little duck on the side, for which i used 3D foam squares.
I covered the butterflies with a clear shimmer pen, added glossy accents to the beaks and legs of the ducks and emphasized their eyes with a black glaze pen.
I also added liquid glue to the bottom of the clouds and coated them with Chunky glitters. I also scattered a bunch of irridescent mini butterflies from Studio Katia.
Out of my million ideas I made this card inspired by the Princess and the frog Disney movie.
First I looked through my Lawn Fawn stash and stamped a bunch of images from Screen Time, Toadally awesome, Wild for you and Critter concert. I coloured them with Copic markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.
To set the night scene I created first an inked background on Bristol Smooth cardstock. I masked off the bottom portion and started with the sky: Black Soot, Blueprint sketch, Wilted Violet and Picked Raspberry. Then I removed the mask and placed it over the sky partition. I used Salty Ocean and Blueprint Sketch and spritzed it with Tsukineko Shimmer Spritz for a subtle sparkle.
I also cut the Bayou backdrop from dark grey cardstock and inked the leaves with Black Sooth distress ink to give it a dark shading. I adhered the backdrop over the inked piece and arranged the images. Then I stamped a sentiment from Winter skies with black ink. I used one of the tiny dies from the Screen time set to cut a small rectangle and wrote “Tiana’s” on it with a black thin line marker. I added a frame with a gold gel pen.
As embellishment I used some star confetti from Trinity stamps and coloured the trumpet and the crown of the frog with a gold gel pen. I also covered the princess’s dress and crown and dragonflies with a clear shimmer pen.
I love how this card turned out and the sentiment matches the movie perfectly too. Wouldn’t any Disney loving little girl be happy with a card like this?
I started with ink blending a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock with Distress inks: Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Twisted Citron, Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean and Wilted Violet. I applied them at a diagonal using a mini ink blending tool. I am always amazed how well these inks blend on Bristol Smooth cardstock! Like butter!
When I was happy with the result, I added water sprinkles and dabbed it off with a paper towel after like 20 seconds. I let it dry completely and ran it through the die cutting machine with the Stitched Cloud Backdrop die.
Then I stamped an coloured some critters from the Upon a star stamp set using Copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. While I was at die cutting, I also cut a bunch of clouds and a sun from white cardstock and also from Gold Glitter cardstock with the dies from the Spring Showers set, and layered them tiny offset to get the illusion of the sunshine on the clouds too.
I also die cut grass from green cardstock using a Simple Grassy Hillsides die and sponged a bit of Forest Moss ink on the top for shading.
After assembling the card, I stamped a sentiment from the Hello Sunshine stamp set with black ink directly on the sky and added little flower sequins I have recently got from my crafty best friend. I used a black glaze pen on the eyes and noses and added a dot to the middle of the flowers with a white gel pen.
I pictured a little pizza scene in my head and looked through my Lawn Fawn stamps to select the right critters. I stamped them from the Pizza my heart, Cheery Christmas and Love letters sets on Bristol Smooth cardstock. I coloured them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.
Then I used the Outside in stitched scalloped rectangles die on a piece of alcohol inked background (I have a few I created earlier waiting to be used on cards). I used a metallic purple cardstock rectangle as a mat in between the layers.
I also cut grass from metallic gold cardstock with the grassy border die and ran it through again with the same scalloped rectangle to have the right shape.
I white heat embossed the I love you sentiment from the Love letters set on the heart shaped pizza and assembled the card. I used Black Staz-on ink to stamp the sentiment on the top of my scene. When it was done, i adhered it to a white card base.
I hope you liked my card today (even if it is REALLY pink), and will pop in again soon for more inspiration!
I have recently got my latest Lawn Fawn order from Simon Says Stamp and i had to use the new goodies right away. So i stamped the Koala and a few eucalyptus branches from the I Love You(calyptus) stamp set on Copic friendly white cardstock. Then i used the mirror stamping technique to stamp another koala facing the first one. As the stamping was not perfect, after colouring i used a Copic Multiliner to make the outlines sharp black.
After fussy cutting the images i used my Memento Tuxedo Black marker on the edges to correct any imperfections. I added Ranger black Enamel accent on the eyes and noses and set them aside to dry.
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.
I am so excited for today’s post as it is part of Mona Toth’s Lawn Fawn Holdiay Card Series. She is a wonderful cardmaker with super talent and a great heart! Check out her blog, Instagram and you tube channel every day for a new Lawn Fawn Tutorial this week, she is amazing.
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.
As a finishing touch I added clear shimmer to the scarf and emphasized the noses with a black glaze pen. I also scattered a few snowflakes from Studio Katia.
