I am popping in today with a card I made for the current Lawnfawnatics Challenge #32.
I started with creating the background on Bristol Smooth paper using Distress Inks: Broken China, Salty Ocean, Faded Jeans. I placed a Waves stencil from Newton’s Nook Design over it and went back with the same colours and also added Tonic Nuvo Shimmer Paste.
Until it was drying I made the frame using the Bayou Backdrop die. I cut it 2 times from Bristol Smooth cardstock and on one of them I sponged Distress inks: Salty Ocean, Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn. I adhered them together for more dimension.
Then I stamped the fish images from the Fintastic friends stamp set, coloured with Copics and cut them out with the coordinating dies. I also heat embossed the sentiment on vellum with white embossing powder.
I assembled the card and arranged the fish on my little ocean scene. I used liquid glue and 3D foam tape to adhere the fish. I used bit of glossy accents on their fins an stripes.
I will upload this card to the Lawnfawnatics Challenge #32, Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Summer Fun and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Fun in the sun.
Hope you like my card and will return soon.
I am back today with a purely die cut card for the Lawnfawnatics #31 Florals, flowers and foliage challenge.
If you follow me, you know that I love to colour and make scene cards, but from time to time I enjoy making cards without stamping. As die cutting is just as much of a pleasure. I started with creating the frames for my little flower garden: I cut 4 stitched scallop rectangle frames, once from light blue and 3 times from white cardstock. I layered the frames on top of each other for dimension keeping the blue one on the bottom.
The inner blue piece will be my little scene. I die cut a brown Stitched garden border and a green Flower border. I cut off 5 flowers and used the tiny flower dies from the Flower Hillside pop-up border add-on set to cut pink flowers. I layered them on top of the green ones and adhered them to the scene. I added golden gems to the middle of 3 of them.
The sentiment is a pink stacked die cut from the Small stitched envelope set. For the background I used the Itsy Bitsy Polka Dot backdrop cut from Neenah Desert Storm cardstock and I layered it on a white card base.
I will upload this card to the Lawnfawnatics Challenge #31 and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything goes.
I hope you like my card and will pop in again soon. Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a lovely day,
Summer vacation is in full swing but I am still making a lot of cards. This one today was inspired by the current Lawnfawnatics Challenge #31 Flowers, Floral and Foliage. I used only Lawn Fawn stamps and dies.
I had some cute critters from the Wild for you stamp set coloured and die cut. I wanted to make them a nice wild background so I die cut the Peekaboo backdrop die once from white and once from dark green cardstock and stacked them together. I also cut the Bayou backdrop die twice from green cardstock and placed pieces of it behind the Peekaboo frame.
I lightly sponged SSS Seaglass ink on a white card stock and stamped the sentiment with black and Jalapeno inks. I used the frame as guide to know where to stamp exactly. Then I adhered the frame and the critters too.
A few white gel pen dots and a bit of glossy accent here and there finished it off.
I will submit this card to the Lawnfawnatics Challenge #31 and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything goes.
I hope you like this fun card and will return soon for more inspiration.
See you soon,
I am popping in today with a cute scene card (my favourite type of all) using Lawn Fawn stamps and dies. I made this for the son of a good friend of mine who is turning 7 years old soon.
I stamped and coloured the images as part of Kathy Racoosin’s 30 days colouring challenge from the Ahoy Matey stamp set. I used Copics and the coordinating dies to cut them out.
I created a scene: I used the stitched cloud backdrop die on white cardstock as a background, then cut a stitched wave from aqua shimmer cardstock and a simple stitched hillside from kraft. I also die cut a sun from the Spring showers die set.
I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink on a black banner an heat embossed with white embossing powder.
I assembled the scene, popped up some of the images and the sentiment banner with 3D foam tape and added some clear shimmer an glossy accents to some details.
I will link this card to the Lawnfawnatics Challenge Cards for guys and also to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge All things bright and beautiful.
I hope you like my card and will return soon for more inspiration.
See you soon,
Today’s card is all about cute sea critters. I have pulled out my older (but totally favourite) Lawn Fawn sets and coloured a lot of fish and under the sea critters on the first day of Kathy Racoosin’s 30 days colouring challenge.
Today I turned them into a card for the Lawnfawnatics #29 challenge:
I was totally inspired by the bottom left pic for the ocean background. I have this gorgeous Studio Katia stencil I used the other day too, so I simply recreated the same background just with different shades of Distress inks. I applied some Clear Shimmer paste from Tonic over the stencil and set it aside to dry.
I cut a white frame with an MFT die and stamped a sentiment in the middle with a purple ink. I popped up the frame on the ocean background with 3D foam tape, and adhered it all on a grey card base.
I arranged the fish and seaweeds, adhered them flat or with 3D foam squares and added a few Studio Katia Iridescent Bubbles.
I also emphasized the eyes of the fish with a black glaze pen and added some glossy accents on the stripes and shell.
I hope you like this summer birthday card and will pop in again soon for more inspiration.
I am back with a card I made for the current Lawnfawnatics sketch challenge #28.
I stamped, coloured and die cut a bunch of the little monsters from an older Lawn Fawn set called Monster mash. I used a rainbow of colours.
I have made a galaxy background using Distress Oxide inks, shimmer mist and some white paint.
I die cut several stitched circle frames and stacked them together. I placed my tiny aliens around and adhered a last frame in navy colour. I added the galaxy background which I cut down to a circle and adhered it all to a white stitched rectangle.
The sentiment is from the Out of this world set, stamped in black and aqua inks.
For the inside I cut a strip of the galaxy background and added another 3 little monsters. I embellished all of them with a white gel pen, a black glaze pen and glossy accents.
I will upload this project to the Lawnfawnatics Sketch Challenge #28.
I hope you like my card and will come back soon for more inspiration.
It is Mother’s Day in Hungary (also my birthday) today and I am popping in to show you the card I made for mum in the name of my kids.
I used the Lawn Fawn Mom and me stamp and die set, coloured the cute images with Copic markers. I made a card base from Bristol Smooth cardstock and sponged some Distress inks on the front and inside as well. I distressed it with water.
I stamped the Sentiments with black Lawn Fawn ink on the front, and also some flowers, hearts and a butterfly using Distress Oxide inks. I added the cute images, embellished them with glossy accents and a black glaze pen. A few iridescent jewels I adhered to the middle of the flowers.
For the inside I used the new Pivot die to create a fun pop up element. I sponged some Distress inks on the outer rectangles of the pop-up and adhered some more images from the same stamp set. In the middle rectangles I placed pics of my kids in LF Mini Picture frames.
I used LF Cole’s ABC to spell “we love you” on the upper part, and left the bottom empty for my message. When it was done, I used a bit of twine to hold the card closed. It looks like a little present in this way.
I will upload this card to the Lawnfawnatics Challenge #27 3D cards and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Animal Magic.
I hope you like it and will check back soon to see other cards I made for this special day for my friends 😉
See you soon,
