HELLO (5)

Instagram is awesome. I got this idea from an Instagrammer I follow. I used the Seaside Seagulls stamp set from My Favorite Things.


I started by masking off half of the piece of cardstock that will be my panel. I wanted to create color onto the top of the panel. I used three Distress Inks: Thumbled Glass, Salty Ocean and Mermaid Lagoon. For some texture and extra interest, I wanted to add some stitching to the background. I took one of the borders from the Stitched Borders set from Lawn Fawn and ran it through my Cuttlebug several times to create a pattern. I stamped my sentiment.


I stamped the images and colored them with Copic Markers. Here are the colors I used:
Seagull: C0 - C2/ Y38 - YR68
Clouds: C0


I fussy cut the images and added them to the panel. I adhered the panel onto a Bue Jay cardbase and rounded off the bottom corners.

I think this card only took me like 20 minutes.

CARD SET: CRITTERS IN THE FOREST (1)

I created three cards with one stamp set. I used the Critters in the Forest stamp set from Lawn Fawn.


I wanted to create a forest themed set, with a stamped background in a color pallette that fits this theme. I used two Lawn Fawn inks to stamp the images for the background: Soot Ink and Doe Ink. I used the images from several other sets besides Critters in the Forest: Toboggan Together, Happy Trails and Home for the Holidays.


When I stamped the background, I went over to the scene, that I wanted to create in a circle. I die cut a circle with the Small Stitched Circle Stackables. I blended Tumbled Glass Distress Ink onto it, very lightly. Then I die cut a hill, from Knock On Wood paper, with the Stitched Hillside Borders.

I stamped the critters and the log (this on three times) and colored the images with Copic Markers. Here are the colors I used:
Log: E57 - E29/ BG93 - BG96
Fox: E18 - E08/ E00 - E11
Hedgehog: E00 - E11/ E57 - E29
Owl: W0 - W3 - W5/ YR38
Raccoon: W3 - W5 - W7
Bird: R14 - R46 - R59
Clouds: C0


I fussy cut all the images and stamped three banners with each a different sentiment. I used Wild Rose Ink and Cranberry Ink for them. The banner is from Bannertastic. I fussy cut the banners and assembled the three cards. I added them to a Guava cardbase.


I really like the forest theme and how I managed to create this look.

JUMP FOR JOY, IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY (4)

Time for a fun fall scene. I used the new Forest Feast stamp set from Lawn Fawn.


I started by die cutting all the elements for the scene. From the Knock On Wood paper pad, I die cut the tree with the Leafy Tree Backdrop: landscape. I cut off the frame, I only wanted to use the tree. From that smae paper pad I also die cut two hills, with the Stitched Hillside Borders. For the sky, I die cut a piece of Mermaid cardstock with the Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables. I also die cut all the leaves that I'm going to use later. From three different colors of cardstock: Chili Pepper, Sunflower and Fake Tan.


I stamped the sentiment, from Jump For Joy, and also stamped all the images. I color them with Copic Markers. Here are the colors I used:
Toadstools: R46 - R59/ E41 - E43
Apple: R46 - R59/ BG93 - BG96
Raccoon: W0 - W3 - W5 - W7
Squirrel: E08 - E18
Hedgehog: E57 - E29/ E00 - E11


I fussy cut the images and assembled the card. I adhered the panel onto a piece of Knock On Wood pattern paper, that I die cut with the Fance Scalloped Rectangle Stackables. This all I added to a piece of Sunflower cardstock.


I was affraid this was going to be too busy, but I really like how it turned out. I just love the fall colors. One of my favorite color pallettes to work with!

DROPPING BY TO SAY HI (1)

For this friendship card, I used the For You, Deer stamp set from Lawn Fawn.


I started by die cutting a piece of Perfectly Plaid Chill paper with the Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables. From this panel I die cut a square twice, with the Outside In Stitched Square Stackables. They are going to function as windows. I die cut the same windows from a piece of Sticky Note cardstock, which will be my cardbase. This will make it a see through card.

I stamped the images and colored them with Copic Markers. Here are the colors I used:
Deer: E08 - E18/ E00 - E11/ E41 - E43
Bear: E31 - E33
I added some white dots onto the animal's face and head. I die cut the images with the coordinating dies.


I stamped the banner, from Bannertastic. For the inside I used Lawn Fawn Inks. Sunflower Ink for the main part of the banner and Sunflower Ink, for the little parts in the back.


I fussy cut the banner and added the sentiment to it. I adhered all the elements together.

I was really tricky to make the front panel and the cardbase have the squares on the same spot, so it is a see through card. But so much fun to make. The stamps also have add-on dies, to create tags or even a bookmark with them. I really want them too.

SEALED WITH A KISS (1)

The mini stamp set Sealed with a Kiss, from Lawn Fawn, is super cute. I decided to use it to create a wedding card.


I started by creating the scene. I die cut some pieces of cardstock with the Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables. I used Watercolor Wishes paper, Narwhal cardstock and regular white cardstock. The Watercolor Wishes paper is my sky. From the Narwhal cardstock I die cut mountains, with the Stitched Mountain Borders. The white cardstock I also die cut with the Stitched Hillside Borders, to create two hills. I stamped the sentiment on the smallest hill, in Peacock Ink.
