To continue the Unicorn Card Series, I made a set of 4 cards inspired by the Lawnfawnatics Challenge #26.
Here is my card set:
I wanted to repurpose some packaging material from Pretty Pink Posh, I just love the subtle polka dot cardstock they use to back their stamps and dies. So I cut 4×4 inch squares from them and mounted them on square card bases.
I also die cut several stitched star frames (3 layers for each card, reusing some packaging material again for the bottom layers) and adhered them together for a thicker frame.
The inside of the frame I ran through the big shot machine with a Snowy Backdrop die to create the night sky. I sponged Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot Distress Oxide inks on them and backed the panel with silver glitter paper.
I stamped and coloured the unicorn costumed kid from the Costume Party stamp set using Copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I added some Tonic Aqua Clear shimmer to the hair and horn and emphasized some details with glossy accents.
The sentiment is from the Critters Ever After stamp set, I white heat embossed it on matching coloured cardstock scraps. Then I die cut them with Sentiment Banners. When assembling the card I used 3D foam tape under the coloured image.
I will upload this project to the Lawnfawnatics Challenge #26 Card sets and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Add Some Texture.
Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you soon. I still have some unicorn card I have not shared yet 😉
It is my second card for the Colour challenge at Lawnfawnatics.
I coloured the cute Easter party critters back in Cairo, so I just had to make a scene for them. I die cut a Party banner from vellum, stamped the sentiment with Stazon ink on the top. I also cut a grassy border from patterned paper and a picket fence from white cardstock.
I adhered the scene, popped up some of the cute images with foam tape. I added some details with a white gel pen, Tonic Aqua Shimmer pen and glossy accents.
I cut a piece of the pretty rainbow paper from the Really Rainbow paper pad to cover the fron of an A2 sized card. I used small drops of liquid glue under the stitching of the vellum banner to hide the adhesive. 2 little mirror enamel dots (Pink and Main) finished it off.
I will upload this project to the Lawnfawnatics #25 challenge and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything goes.
I hope this cute card made you smile and you will pop in again soon.
I am going to bombard you with cheerful cards today as yesterday night I was on a creative peek and made 5 spring/Easter cards. The first one is inspired by the current Lawnfawnatics Challenge #25 Colour Inspiration.
I stamped and coloured several flowers from Lawn Fawn Gleeful gardens and Fairy friends stamp sets, die cut them with their coordinating dies and added a lot of shimmer with my Tonic Aqua Shimmer pen to the petals.
I die cut a stitched rectangle frame from warm grey cardstock and backed it with vellum. I arranged the flowers in rainbow order.
For the background I backed a white Quilted backdrop panel with warm grey cardstock, stamped a sentiment from Fairy friends in black and adhered it to a white top folding card base.
I will link this project up to the Lawnfawnatics Challenge #25, Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Inside the box and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything goes.
I hope you like my card and will check back for some more rainbows later.
We are back from our family visit in Cairo, we had a wonderful, sunshiny week there. After unpacking and washing I felt the need to craft, so while my little one had a nap and my daughter was watching a cartoon, I made this Easter card – using dies only.
I started with cutting a Quilted backdrop from kraft cardstock and glued it on a white card base. I die cut a strip of green plaid patterned paper, a thin strip of green glitter paper to go on top of the patterned one and a happy Easter sentiment from black shimmer cardstock.
I also die cut 3 bunnies from white cardstock using the Tiny gift box bunny add-on set. I coloured the inner parts of the ears and the carrot with Copics. The noses I die cut from shimmer black cardstock and pieced them together on my card.
I finished it off with adding google eyes to the cute bunnies.
I love the simplicity of this card and how playful it turned out. I will upload this to the Lawnfawnatics Challenge #24 Fun with dies, to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Inspiration Spring/Easter inspiration and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Easter Inspired.
I hope you like my card and will pop in tomorrow too for some more Easter inspiration.
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,
