When I started to collect stamps (yes, I do, I must admit), my first love was Lawn Fawn. I cannot have enough of their cute critters and their cheerful designs. The current theme at the Lawnfawnatics Challenge is Inky fingers. It was meant for me, I love to play with many different types of inks.
On today’s card I used distress inks to make the grass and the sky. I splattered water and also some darker shades of distress inks for more texture. I also used the stitched clouds cover up die from Lawn Fawn for even more texture.
The main characters of my little scenes are dogs and a little bird, celebrating a birthday. I used many different Lawn Fawn sets to create this party, all coloured with Copics, and embellished further with Tonic Aqua Shimmer pen, a black glaze pen and glossy accents.
The sentiment is from yet another set, white heat embossed on a black torn-style banner (MFT die). I gave the whole scene a white mat and then a black and white patterned paper mat to make it pop.
I will upload this project to the current Lawnfawnatics Challenge #22.
I hope you like my card and will pop in again soon for more inspiration.
It is Sunday night here and I am popping in with a card I made for the current Lawnfawnatics Challenge #21. The inspiration board look like this:
And here is my take on it:
I started with colouring the cute birds from the Season’s Tweetings mini set and cut them out with the coordinating die a couple of days ago as part of the 30days colouring challenge organised by the wonderful Kathy Racoosin.
Then I die cut some snow banks and birch trees from white cardstock using Lawn Fawn dies. I also cut the Love Ya sentiment from white and hot pink cardstocks and layered them together.
I assembled my scene on a piece of Lawn Fawn patterned paper so it covers the fron of an A2 sized card. I used thin 3D foam tape to get more dimension. I stamped the other part of the sentiment on the smaller snowbank using a dark pink ink.
I also die cut some hearts from a pink alcohol inked background I made earlier and covered them with glossy accent.
I added some Diamond stickles to the accessories of the little birds for some extra sparkle.
I will link this project up to the Lawnfawnatics Challenge #21 and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Layer it up.
I hope you like my card and will pop in tomorrow for some birthday fun.
Foreword: I have decided to start a Love Themed Card Series after seeing how much you liked the Halloween and Holiday one last year. This is my first card within the series. Enjoy!
It is finally weekend and I managed to put together a card I dreamt of 2 days ago. I imagined a very colourful and sparkly card with lots of cupcakes for the Lawnfawnatics challenge #20 Fun with food.
Here is the outcome:
I started with stencilling the clouds with distress inks on Bristol Smooth cardstock. Then I used another stencil (Honey Bee Stamps) for the sun rays and before removing the stencil I sprayed Tsukineko Shimmer Spritz over it for a subtle sparkle. I ran it through the Big Shot with a stitched rectangle die to give it a nice finished look.
Then I stamped my custom sentiment using Owen’s ABC and Guava ink from Lawn Fawn. The rest of it is from the Baked with love stamp set, stamped in black. When the stamping was all done, I die cut the panel with a Puffy cloud border die.
The cupcakes are all from the Baked with love stamp set, coloured with Copics and cut out with the coordinating dies. I used 3D foam tape to pop up the cloud border and the cupcakes.
And now the embellishments. I sprinkled quite a lot of iridescent star sequins using Ranger Multi Matte medium. I also added Tonic Aqua Clear Shimmer and glossy accents to the cupcake holders. Then for the first time ever I pulled out my Tonic Jewel Drops and added teeny tiny dots to the cupcakes as little sprinkles or icing. I am in love with the end result, it is just gorgeous!
I will submit this card to the Lawnfawnatics Challenge #20.
I hope you like my card and will return soon for more fun.
See you soon,
I hope you are all having a wonderful time celebrating the last day of 2017 and welcoming all the good things of the next year. We had a little party with the kids at my parents, and before i jump in bed and have a recovering good sleep till 2018, I wanted to share with you my Happy New Years Lawn Fawn card.
I used my favourite stamp set Fairy friends, stamped the cute fairies and coloured them with Copics. I die cut them with the coordinating dies. I added some shimmer with the Tonic shimmer pen to the wings.
The background is stenciled (MFT Mini cloud edges) with Tumbled Glass distress ink. The sentiment (Big Scripty Words) is heat embossed with silver glitter embossing powder (WOW) and i sponged distress ink on it as well to match the background. The rest of the sentiment is from a Joy Clair set (Hello sentiments).
I added a silver glitter frame to the scene (Avery Elle Postage stamps frame die) and finished the card with a bunch of rainbow jewels from Honey Bees Stamps.
I will upload this card to the Lawnfawnatics challenge #19 Use your favourite LF set and to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Party and Wednesday Challenge Anything goes.

Have a great time,
A quick post of a card I made last minute for the Lawnfawnatics Emboss Resist challenge.
I saw many beautiful cards from Laura Bassen and she loves to colour with distress inks. I wanted to try this technique, so I white heat embossed a lot of little houses from the Winter village stamp set (Lawn Fawn) on Bristol Smooth cardstock. I cut them apart and sponged different Distress Inks on them, then I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.
For the background I added water splatters to a Bristol Smooth cardstock and white heat embossed it. Then I sponged Distress inks on the whole panel and misted with Shimmer mist for a subtle sparkle. I also dabbed some of it with a paper towel for more texture.
I die cut 3 stitched hillside borders and stamped the greetings with colourful inks on the smallest one. I re-stamped the upper one with Versamark ink and added clear embossing powder to it. After heat setting it gives a lovely shiny look to the sentiment.
After assembling the card, I added some Spectrum Noir Shimmer pen to the roofs and went over the snow caps with a white acrylic marker. I also added some extra dots to the background with the same marker for more snow falling.
I will upload this card project to the following challenges:
I hope you like this very cheerful holiday card and will return soon for more inspiration.
See you soon,
The day has come, it is Halloween and I am showing you my last card this year in the Last Minute Halloween Card-series. It was a fun week full of cards and bright colours 😀 I cannot deny myself 🙂
For the last card I used Lawn Fawn and Clearly Besotted images, coloured with Copics and fussy cut.
To build my scene I made a galaxy background first with watercolours and white acrylic paint. It is not showing much, only when you take a closer look. I also die cut a birch tree die (SSS) within a wonky stitched rectangle, which I popped up on the background using 3D foam tape. I die cut a large stitched rectangle from a purple plaid paper (Lawn Fawn) and adhered my scene on this.
The sentiment is from the Happy Howl-o-ween Lawn Fawn set, I white heat embossed it on a stitched black banner.
I used Wink of Stella clear shimmer pen (a bit less sparkly than the Spectrum Noir one) on the ghosts and the dress of my cute witch. I also emphasized some details with a black glaze pen and glossy accents.
I will upload this project to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything goes.
I hope you enjoyed my card series, I am thinking of doing the same soon for Christmas. Let me know in the comments below if you were interested! I appreciate your feedback so much!
Have a lovely fright night and Happy Halloween!
As Halloween is close, I will still post some cards related to this holiday, just as inspiration. Personally we do not celebrate Halloween, but I love all the crafty products available on the market 🙂
I started with stamping the cute dogs from the Lawn Fawn Happy Howloween and Happy Howlidays stamp sets (this last one was an SSS Exclusive last year). I coloured them with Copics and die cut them with the coordinating dies.
To build the scene I used a cloud stencil and distress inks to make a sunset feel. I also sponged distress inks on 2 die cut grass borders, on the Leafy tree backdrop and a stitched rectangle frame. I sprinkled some water on them for more texture.
The sentiment is stamped directly on the clouds in black. I used 3D foam tape and liquid glue to assemble the card. I also stamped the Boo sentiment in a light grey ink on the background.
A bit of details as always: black glaze pen on the eyes and noses, white gel pen dots on the cheeks, Spectrum Noir shimmer pen on the pumpkins and hats and glossy accent on the bones.
I will submit this card to the Lawnfawnatics Challenge #14 Happy little critters.
I hope you like this card and will pop in tomorrow for more fun projects.
