Wedding Remake – Lawn Fawn

Hello Everyone,

I am popping in today with a card I made in the last minute for Mona Toth’s Lawn Fawn Wedding Challenge on Instagram. She is my crafty best friends and I could not resist playing along. This is my card:

And this is the inspiration I used: a collage I created when we moved in our home in Budapest. It is hanging in our bedroom ever since.

All stamps and dies I used for this card are from Lawn Fawn. I started with creating the little white Stitched rectangles to hold the wedding pics. I used the partial die cutting technique to cut them shorter. Then I stamped the images on each from the following sets using some masking: Bicycle built for you, Screen Time and Mermaid for you. I used a Memento marker to alter the images a little and then I coloured them with Copic markers.

As I was veiled at my wedding day I used the hair of the original characters as the veil. I had a lot of fun trying to give them a different look.

For the background I used woodgrain cardstock and applied Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide with a blending brush. It really resembles our wallpaper which I used as the background of our original frame.

The sentiment I cut form black sparkle cardstock using the Cole’s ABC die set.

After assembling the card, I added little embellishments: silver metallic leaves (Stitched Flower Frame) and little dark grey flowers (Scalloped Treat Box Springhouse Add-on). I added tiny little white pearls in the middle.

As a final touch I used a clear shimmer pen on the veil and glossy accents on the belt. Isn’t it cute?

I hope you enjoyed my wedding remake and will pop in again soon for more inspiration.

See you soon,

Retiring Feature Week – Newton’s Nook Designs

Hello Everyone,

Did you see that Newton’s Nook Designs is having a retiring sale on their website? It’s time to make room for new products so they are retiring selected designs! These designs are available at up to 40% off while supplies last so hurry to get your favorites before they’re gone for good! 

All week the NND Design Team will be sharing inspiration using some of their favorite products from the retiring list! Check out what I created today and don’t forget to check the NND Blog each day this week for more fun inspiration!

CARD 1

Hedgehog Hollow is one of my favourite sets among the retiring one. It is also because both my kids were in the Hedgehog group in KG, so these cuties are close to my heart.

I started with stamping the images coloured them with alcohol markers. Then I used the Hedgehog Hollow Die Set to cut them out.

To set the scene I used the Frames Squared Die Set to create a scallop edged square from Bristol Smooth cardstock and masked off the scallop part before ink blending Salty ocean Distress ink with a big blending brush. I added grass using the Land Borders Die Set along the bottom edge.

To make the scene complete I added the sun and clouds using the Sky Scene Builders Die Set. The sentiment perfectly fits under the clouds, so it was easy to incorporate it in the scene.

I adhered the panel to a top folding square kraft notecard (4.25×4.25 inches) and finished it off with yellow twine.

Of course I had to add clear shimmer to the sun and glossy accents to the ladybugs, the nose of the hedgies and the decoration on the cup.

CARD 2

For my second card I decided to feature a set I have never used before: Wedding Frills. It has beautiful lacy images, perfect for weddings!

I started with embossing the pretty medallion image with rose gold embossing powder and added the “happily ever after” sentiment in the center. As I did not have the coordinating die I fussy cut the image but I really need to get the dies to make my life easier 🙂

For the background I embossed the lacy floral stamp from the same set in white 2 times and sponged Picked Raspberry and Spun Sugar Distress inks over it. I also added Picked raspberry ink and rose gold paint splatters for the texture. I used a stitched rectangle die to cut it down and matted it with dark pink cardstock.

I popped up the focal panel with 3D foam squares and added some gold jewels to the background.

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration and will pop in again soon for more. Meanwhile don’t forget to check out the Retiring Products Category at Newton’s Nook Designs to see what is going away and grab your favorites before they are gone for good!

Stay safe,

Magical wedding ft. Heffy Doodle

Hello Everyone,

A sweet friend of mine was invited for a wedding party today and asked me to make a card for the happy couple. I love to make wedding cards, it always cheers me up when I can create cute wedding scenes.

I have recently got my hands on the Heffy Doodle Happily Ever Crafter stamp and die set and I also received the free Hay there stamp and die set. I could not wait to use them together! I stamped and coloured them with Copic markers and used their coordinating dies to cut the images out.

To create a scene I knew I need some scene building elements. I die cut trees from green and brown cardstocks using the Heffy Doodle Forest builder dies. I also cut some grass with the Newton’s Nook Designs Land border die set and also a hill with the Heffy Doodle Stitched Slopey Joes border dies.

For the background I die cut the Lawn Fawn Vertical Stitched cloud backdrop from Neenah Solar white cardstock and added a bit of Tumbled glass Distress Ink with a small blending brush. I love the texture I got with the stitching details and a bit of soft colour.

I assembled the scene, adhering the hill and grass first and then the trees and the cart. I adhered the bride on the horse and popped her and the groom up with 3D foam squares.

The sentiment I stamped on a thin strip of vellum using black Staz-on ink and wrapped it around the background panel. Using double sided adhesive tape on the back ensures that no glue shows through the vellum on the front.

I also die cut the word Magical from gold glitter cardstock. I embellished the card with some gold jewels on the trees.

I added clear shimmer to the dress and glossy accents to the gold parts of the cart, the crown, the bow tie and shoes of the groom. I used a black glaze pen on the eyes to make them shiny.

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration and you will pop in again tomorrow for some more fun!

See you soon,

Zsofi
