I have a super cute stenciled card for you today using some new and old sets from Lawn Fawn. I am so happy that they have their own stencils too, I am totally addicted to stenciling tehniques. Here I used an old favourite of mine, let me show you how.
First I started with a light ink blending: on Bristol Smooth cardstock I applied Scattered Straw, Spiced Marmelade and Abandoned Coral Distress Oxide inks with blending brushes. I tried to be light handed which is always a challenge for my bright colours loving heart 🙂
I cut the stenciled panel down with a stitched rectangle die and cut a stitched heart in the middle. I layered the lacy heart under it and adhered it back in place. I adhered the hedgies and the sentiment and matted the whole panel with peach cardstock before mounting it on a white top folding A2 sized card base.
I am back today with a Fall card I made keeping in mind all the fantastic Autumn themed challenges this week. All products used are from Lawn Fawn.
I started with stamping the images from the Happy Harvest stamp set, coloured them with Copic markers and cut them out with the coordinating dies. The colour theme was inspired by Pippichallenge3 (my favourite Hungarian crafty shop!).
Then I die cut some small stitched leaves from Lawn Fawn cardstock scraps in matching colours: Schoolhouse, Raspberry and Peacock.
The sentiment is a die cut too.
Assembling the card was easy, his time I adhered everything flat on a piece of light grey cardstock and a pretty patterned paper from the Fall Fling paper pad.
As a finishing touch I used glossy accents on the stems,beaks and the scarecrow itself. A little bit of twine I wrapped around the card on the top as embellishment.
I started with creating the smiley flower: i die cut all the elements of the Stitched Flower frame die from Bristol Smooth cardstock and used Distress inks to add colour to it: Mowed Lawn for the stem and leaves, Picked Raspberry and Spun Sugar for the flower. The middle of the flower I die cut with the Outside in stitched flower and added Squeezed Lemonade distress ink to it.
I also die cut grass with a grassy hillside border die and coloured it with Mowed Lawn Distress ink again.
Then I worked on the background: on a piece of Bristol Smooth paper I applied Blueprint Sketch and Salty Ocean Distress inks, sprayed it with water and dabbed it off with a paper towel. When it was all dry, I die cut it with the Rainy Backdrop portrait die and backed it with silver glitter paper.
I stamped and coloured with Copics the fairies from my favourite stamp set: Fairy friends. I die cut them with the coordinating dies, added some clear shimmer to their wings and a little gem in their buns.
I assembled the scene, adhered everything flat apart from the fairies which I popped up with 3D foam squares, I die cut the Happy birthday border sentiment from white cardstock and the Mom from pink cardstock 2 times and stacked them together.
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 wanted to create a fall background scene for my squirrels, which just arrived this week! I had to use them right away. I went through my older Lawn Fawn sets and I found more squirrels in the Cheery Christmas set along with tiny cute acorns, so I coloured them with Copics as well. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.
For the background I did a lot of die cutting. First the Stitched Hillside backdrop die from kraft cardstock and some grassy hillside borders from green cardstock. I adhered these to the slope cuts, the curves match perfectly!
I cut the tree trunks from dark brown and the tree foliage from some fall colours. I even used a brushed gold one. The Stitched cloud backdrop die I cut from vanilla cardstock to make it special. The Stitched rectangle frame I cut from dark green.
As the scene is very busy, I adhered everything flat and the sentiment (Pick of the Patch) I stamped directly on the cloudy backdrop. I added some fall coloured sequins to the trees, a bit of white gel pen details and glossy accents to the tops of the acorns.
I started with stamping and colouring a bunch of images from different Lawn Fawn sets (Year 6, Gleeful gardens, Elphie Selphie, Mermaid for you and Critters in the sea). I used Copics for colouring and the coordinating dies to cut them out.
Then I created an alcohol inked background with a felt applicator and blending solution. I love these blue-aqua colours so much! I also made a yellowish piece which I die cut with a Stitched hillside border die to be the sand.
When assembling the scene, I adhered some of the images inside the shaker and I left some for outside to make sure thy are not covered when shaking. I also made the dolphin move by attaching it to the background with a very thin thread. It shakes inside but not too much, so it will not get lost in the bottom of the card.
The shaker part is a white stitched rectangle frame with a piece of acetate adhered to it. I stamped the sentiment with black Staz-on ink on the acetate itself. I put thin strips of foam tape around the frame and filled it with clear sequins, seed beads, silver hexagon sequins (Honey Bee Stamps) and chunky glitter confetti (Studio Katia). Before closing the shaker I also glued some of the hexagon sequins to the background to ensure that not all falls down to the bottom when the card is standing.
When the shaker was sealed, I adhered the rest of the images on the acetate, added some Tonic Aqua Shimmer to the seashell and the balloon and covered them with glossy accent. I made a little video for you to see the shaking (I am sorry that it is poor quality, I will work on that for the next time)
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!
