Lawn Fawn Fairy Friends Thinking of You Cards

Yesterday I shared the process of making these awesome faux watercolor/ink smooshing backgrounds and today I wanted to share two of the final products that came out of them.

The mini story behind this project was my lack of creative motivation and my daughter’s desire to help me out of the slump. She chose the stamp sets and the color palettes and told me to go! It was great fun and lots of giggles in the craft room.

I actually started by taking a half sheet of copic xpress paper and filling it with all of the images from the Lawn Fawn Fairy Friends and Gleeful Gardens stamp sets. Then I colored them with copic markers that matched the color palettes I used for the backgrounds. I die cut everything out and sorted it by color family. Then I used my largest Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle frame to cut the backgrounds down to A2 size and started laying out my cards.

Here is the first one with the pink/orange/yellow color palette. I just love the whimsy of these fairies paired with the background. To finish it off I added a stamped, heat embossed sentiment from Avery Elle and some clay hearts from Honey Bee Stamps.

Next I moved on to the blue/purple background and set of images. It’s close to the same layout with a few variations. These fairies never get old for me and I love the snails with them.

Adding the snails to this card made the bottom feel heavy. I needed to counter this with a substantial sentiment which came from the same Avery Elle stamp set.

This time instead of the hearts, I used Nuvo crystal drops in caribbean blue randomly throughout the background. I love the texture these give.

I added white gel pen accents to everything in both cards and also Wink of Stella clear glitter pen to all the fairy wings.

I love how these cards turned out and am excited to see what comes of the other two backgrounds I still have waiting to play with.

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!

Concord & 9th and Lawn Fawn Thank You Fairy Much Card

I’m so excited to share this adorable, bright fairy thank you card with you today. I recently placed a fun order with Scrapbookpal.com, including some things I wouldn’t typically choose. I love this site and they have recently added some new, big names to the companies they carry including Concord and 9th, The Stamp Market and Gina K Designs to name a few.

In this order I was sure to add this amazing Concord and 9th Big Thanks die as soon as I saw it. I immediately had so many ideas for it and couldn’t wait for it to arrive so I could start playing. Today’s card showcases this die with Lawn Fawn Fairy Friends stamps and coordinating dies.

I started by blending distress inks on smooth white cardstock and then spritzing them with water for that great oxidized look. The colors used here are, from the top down, twisted citron, cracked pistachio, mermaid lagoon and blueprint sketch.

Then I laid out my card before stamping the images, just to make sure I knew everything was going to fit okay on the card front.

I also want to mention that this is my first time using Lawn Fawn’s Jet Black ink pad which is copic friendly. I was excited since I haven’t been happy with the other stamp pad I’ve been using for copics. I’m elated to report that it worked amazing and I’m instantly in love!

When I colored the fairies, I planned their outfit colors to match the area of the distress ink they were in the most.

After I colored and die cut the fairies, I also die cut the big thanks die four times from white cardstock and stacked them together for some fun dimension. I attached the die cut word first with liquid glue and then added foam to the back of the fairies.

I used my Wink of Stella clear glitter brush to add shimmer to the fairies’ wings and the entire thanks die cut. Then I added these great bubbles from Honey Bee Stamps around the card and finished off the front with some white gel pen accents.

The very last thing I did was stamp the sentiment “Thank you fairy much!” on the inside with Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Up ink.

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
