WISHING YOU HAPPINESS (5)

I created this new home card. And the perfect new die set for this is the Build-a-House die set from Lawn Fawn. I combined it with one of the images from Tree Before 'n After.


I die cut all the elements for the house. I only used Lawn Fawn cardstock for this. I used Rainforest cardstock, Chili Pepper cardstock, Sticky Note cardstock, Apricot cardstock, Kraft cardstock and Mermaid cardstock. I assembled the house and added some shine marks to the windows with a white gelly roll pen.

For the scene, I started on ink blending the background. I used just Salty Ocean, for a simple inked sky. I left it white towards the bottom.


I die cut a hill, using the Simpe Stiched Hillside Borders and some Kraft cardstock. I also die cut some clouds, from the Foursquare Backdrop: Portrait die set.

I assembled the card and stamped the sentiment in Noble Fir Ink. I added the panel onto a Kraft carbase. As a finishing touch, I added a doorknob with some Nuvo Crystal Drops, in the color Buttermilk.


This Build-a-House die set (and all it's add-on sets) is one of my favorite sets of this year. Maybe even ever!

REVEAL WHEEL (21)

For this Reveal Wheel card, I used the Fortune Teller Tabby stamp set together with the cat image from Keep on Swimming. All from Lawn Fawn.


I die cut all the reveal wheel elements. I used the Reveal Wheel Square Add-On set, instead of the basic one, to create a smaller scene. For the background I used Distress Inks. I used Shaded Lilac and Wilted Violet Distress Inks. For the ground, I used some Spiffy Speckles paper.

I also ink blended the wheel, with Cracked Pistachio and Peacock Feathers Distress Ink. I stamped and heat embossed the sentiments onto the weel.


I stamped the images and colored them with Copic Markers. Here are the colors I used:
Cats: YR21 - Y38/ W0 - W3/ E1 - E33 - E35/ R22
Table: YR21 - Y38/ V01 - V12 - V04
Glass ball: YG41 - BG23/ W3 - W5 - W7


I die cut the images with my Cuttlebug and also die cut the inner part of the glass ball.

I assembled the reveal wheel, adhered everything onto the panel and stamped the remaining part of the sentiment. I adhered the panel onto a Mermaid cardbase and stamped the 'turn here' sentiment next to the wheel. I also added an arrow here, which was die cut from Spiffy Speckles paper. As a finishing touch I added a white highlight to the bandana of the cat, using a gelly roll pen.

It has a simple look, but it packs a punch!

CRAFTY HAUL (36)

My Lawn Fawn package finally arrived from the US. I got all these products using my gift cards, given to me by Lawn Fawn.


I got two of their new cardstock. The Rainforest cardstock, which is a deep teal color and I loved it right away. And the SPeckled Eggshell cardstock, a creamy white color with brown speckles on it.

I a got the Foursquare Backdrop: Portrait die. I usually get these types of dies in the landscape style, but I decided to get the portrait for this. And I love the additional shaped dies that come with it.

The mini sets are always a great price point and this winter they came out with the Winter Narwhal mini set. Super cute, perfect to combine with the new Christmas Fishes stamp set.

I love the Woodland Critter Huggers dies and now there is a Bat Add-On for it. Super cute, to create a bat shaped gift card holder or even use it on a card.

My favorite die sets from thie release are the Build-a-House die set and the two add on sets: Build-a-House Christmas Add-On and Build-a-House Halloween Add-On. I can't wait to start creating fun houses.

I got the Fortune Teller Tabby stamp set (the coordinating dies I didn't order, but received them anyway, lucky me). And I got the Reveal Wheel Circle Add-On and the templates that go with it. This is such a cute set.

Happy crafting!!!!
