HAPPY BIRTHDAY (28)

I created this birthday card with the Little Bunny Agenda stamp set from Mama Elephant.


I started by stamping and coloring the images. I took 12 of the bunny images and colored them with Copic Markers. Here are the colors I used:
Bunny: C0 - C2
Accessories: BG23 - BG49/ R22 - R35/ Y02 - Y06


I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment three times, using white embossing powder from Ranger. The cardstocks I used are from Lawn Fawn: Guava, Peacock and Sunflower.


I assembled the card and added the panel onto a Guava cardbase.

As a finishing touch, I added some Nuvo Crystal Drops in the color Bubblegum Blush.

THANK YOU (3)

I wanted to create a one-layer card. I used the In Bloom stamp set from My Favorite Things and the Thank You Wishes set from Mama Elephant.


I first stamped the big sentiment, with Versafine Onyx Black Ink. Then I stamped all the flowers around the sentiment. I used my Tonic Studios Stamping Platform, perfect when you have to stamp solid stamps and want to do stamp layering. The inks I used are all from Lawn Fawn. Here are the combinations I used for all teh flowers:
Sunflower Ink, Carrot Ink, Pumpkin SPice Ink, Lobster Ink
Celery Stick Ink, Freshly Cut Grass Ink, Moonstone Ink, Forget-Me-Not Ink
Butter Ink, Sunflower Ink, Carrot Ink, Pumpkin Spice Ink


I wanted to use a color pallette using not too many colors. I wanted a spring colored card.

I added the panel onto a Sticky Note cardbase and rounded off the top and bottom right corner.


I took some Nuvo Crystal Drops to add as finishing touches. I used three colors: Dandelion Yello, Apple Green and Silver Moondust.


I normally use a lot of layers on my cards, so it was kind of fun to create a one-layer card for once.

YOU'RE SEW AMAZING (2)

For this friendship card, I decided to use Sewn With Love, a Lawn Fawn set I haven’t used in a while.


I started by trimming down a piece of Gotta Have Gingham paper, a piece of Paper Bag cardstock and a piece of Vanilla Malt cardstock. This is going to function as my base and background.

I stamped all the images and colored them with Copic Markers. Here are the colors I used:
Sewing machine: C0 – C3/ C3 – C5/ R22 – R35
Pin cushion: R22 – R35/ YR30 – YR31/ V91 – V95
Scissors: V91 – V95/ C0 – C3
Spools: E53 – E55/ BG34 – BG49/ YR30 – YR31
Thimble: C0 – C3
Jar: BG000/ C0 – C3/ YR30 – YR31
Buttons: BG34 – BG49/ R22 – R35/ V91 – V95


I die cut all the images with my Cuttlebug and started assembling the card. I stamped the sentiment in two parts. The word ‘sew’ I stamped in Wild Rose Ink and die cut it. The rest of the sentiment I stamped in Peacock Ink.


I adhered the panel onto a piece of Peacock cardbase.

This was a card that just happened. Never had the intention of making it, the idea just came to me all of a sudden. So cool!!!

For this love themed card, I used the Some Bunny stamp set from Lawn Fawn.

HOPPY FATHER'S DAY (1)

For this father’s day card, I used the Toadally Awesome stamp set from Lawn Fawn.


I started by blending a background. I used Peacock Feathers and Blueprint Skets Distress inks. I added some water drops onto the paper and dabbed them off with a paper towel. I didn’t blend the entire panel, because only a part of it will be shown through.


For the front I trimmed two pieces of white cardstock and embossed a border on both. I used the Stitched Border dies, the dotted one.

I stamped all the images I wanted to use and colored them with Copic Markers. Here are the colors I used:
Frogs: YG11 – G21/ Y21 – Y17
Cat tails: BG93 – BG96/ E31 – E33
Lillies; RV10 – R83
Dragonfly: B34 – 0


I fussy cut all the images and assembled the card. I stamped the sentiment in Mermaid Ink and the swirly line with Manatee Ink.

I added the panel onto a Noble Fir cardbase and added some little white dots and highlights to some of the images.


I rouned off the two bottom corners.
It surprises me how different looks I can create with the same images, over and over again!

YOU'RE A-MAIZE-ING (4)

For Challenge # 27 on the Lawn Fawnatics blog, I designed this pop-up card, since the theme is 3D cards. I don’t make pop-up cards often, simply because it’s so time consuming.


I decided to use my favorite Lawn Fawn stamp set: Happy Harvest. I started by die cutting all the elements I needed for the card. I used the Stitched Hillside Pop-Up die. I used some Distress Inks for the hills. For the back hill I used Crushed Olive and the front hill I blended with Scattered Straw. For the background I used Carved Pumpkin, to create a sunny look.


I stamped the images and colored them with Copic Markers. Here are the colors I used:
Sunflowers: Y15 – YR15/ E57 – E29/ YG61 – YG67
Pumpkins: YR16 – YR07/ YG61 – YG67
Birds: W5 – W7/ Y15 – YR15
Scarecrow: E53 – E55/ E57 – E29/ B93 – B34/ R14 – R46/ Y17
The corn stalks I stamped in Sunflower Ink, Carrot Ink and Doe Ink.


I fussy cut all the images. I also wanted to create a panel on the front of the card. I die cut a piece of white cardstock with the Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables. I stamped the two sunflowers repeatedly and colored them with the same colors as the sunflowers on the inside of the card.


I used a Sticky Note cardbase and assembled the card. I stamped the sentiment on the inside of the card. Please check out the Lawn Fawnatics blog, for the new challenge and great inspiration from me and my fellow Design Team Members. And maybe you can join yourself!
