Lawn Fawn – Wild Ride

Hello everyone! I’m back again today to share a really special card that I made because today is my anniversary. My husband and I have been married for 14 years today and I couldn’t resist making this card because the sentiment was just too perfect!

To create my card, I started with a piece of kraft cardstock. I smooshed some green ink on my glass mat and spritzed it with water. Then I smooshed my paper in the ink repeatedly, drying in between layers. Once that panel was dry, I ran it through the die cutter with the Hero Arts vines and leaves cover die. I placed it over a light teal panel and thought it was too plain. So I used a blending brush and green ink on the edges of the teal panel and really liked the difference it made. So, I used liquid glue and adhered them together.

Next, I stamped and colored images from the new Lawn Fawn Toucan Do it set and then cut them out with the coordinating dies. I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from the set on black cardstock and trimmed it into two strips.

With a combination of liquid adhesive and foam squares I adhered all of my images and the sentiment strips. Then I went in for finishing touches like glossy accents to the bird beaks and unicorn Stickles to the butterflies and flower centers. I also added black glaze pen to the eyes and glossy accents to the jaguar noses too.

I’m just so happy with how this card turned out and am really excited to give it to my husband today too!

Coffee Loving Cardmakers – You’re Just My Cup of Tea

Hi everyone! It’s time for another Tuesday Tea over on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog today. I had some fun playing with the secondary images in a new-to-me set from Hero Arts called Mouse Tea Party. There are some adorably cute mice in this set ready for a tea party, along with great sentiments and other fun images too.

I stamped and colored images from the set with my copic markers, keeping to pinks and oranges because I knew I wanted a blue/teal background so they would pop and not get lost. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and moved on to getting inky.

I blended chipped sapphire, peacock feathers and speckled egg distress oxide inks on a while panel, then splattered it with water and pearl watercolor. Then I trimmed the panel down to 4.5×4.25 inches and added a strip of white glitter paper to the bottom. I added foam tape to the back and popped it on a white card base. Then I stuck that in my MISTI and stamped a sentiment on the bottom right side.

Next, I added foam squares to the back of my images and popped them in place. Moving on to finishing touches, I added glossy accents to the mushroom dots, and parts of the teacup and teapot. Then I went ahead with a little more sparkle by adding stardust Stickles to the steam, butterflies and flower centers.

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. I hope you’ve found some inspiration to create something wonderful and share it with someone too!

Have a fabulous day!

MFT Stamps – Super in Superhero

Hello everyone! I have a REALLY fun box card to share with you today featuring some fun, new goodies I got from Scrapbookpal.com recently.

Products used on today’s project, using affiliate links to help fund this page at no cost to you:
Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink
Lawn Fawn Scalloped Box Card dies
MFT Stamps Super Friend stamps and dies
Hero Arts Leaves and Vines background die
Distress Ink colors – Tea Dye, Mowed Lawn and Black Soot
Tombow Mono Liquid Adhesive
Scrappy Tape 1/4 inch
Copic markers – R00, R24, R27, R29, YR21, YR24, YR27, Y11, Y13, Y26, Y28, YG11, YG13, YG93, YG95, G12, G14, G16, G24, G28, B0000, B32, B34, W1, W3, W5, W7, E41, E42, E43, E44

To create my card, I started by die cutting all the elements from the Lawn Fawn scalloped box card. The outside of the box is cut from kraft cardstock and the edges are inked with tea dye distress ink. The decorative panels are cut from white cardstock and inked with tea dye and mowed lawn distress inks. Then they are splattered with watered down ink from those two colors plus a little black soot for extra texture.

An extra white panel was inked up with the same colors that I die cut the Hero Arts leaves and vines die from. Then that panel was cut down to 3×3.25 inches to fit the back panel of the box card. This gave me a large piece left over to use on another project too! Next, I used 1/4 inch scrappy tape to adhere the box card together, including the inner supports that I will attach my images to later on.

I stamped images from MFT Stamps Super Friend and colored them with my copic markers. I made sure to stamp lots of extra leaves so that I could fill the scene really well. I attached the koala character to a strip of acetate and added him to the back support in the card. Working my way forward, I added the other two characters and leaves in between.

For my sentiment, I chose to stack one of the longer ones from the Super Friends set by masking it off and stamping it in two sections on one of the inked decorative panels. Last, I added those to the flaps of the card and also glued the leaves and vines background to the back panel of the box card.

This card was so much fun to create! I love making interactive cards. They are so fun to make but more fun to give to people! Seeing their face when it moves or pops open is so cool!

I hope you found some inspiration to create something wonderful. I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!

Coffee Loving Cardmakers – Hero Arts

Happy Tuesday everyone! It’s time for another Tuesday Tea with Twiddler’s Nook over on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog. I was recently gifted some incredible caffeinated products from Hero Arts from a very generous friend and I’m obsessed with it all! This was the My Monthly Hero kit from August 2018, so maybe you have it in your stash and can bring it out to new light.

As soon as I laid my eyes on this die I knew I had to try it in black and white and I love them both! Such different effects by just changing a simple color of cardstock, always amazes me.

For this black one, I blended distress oxides in tattered rose, ripened perssimon and fired brick on an A2 panel. I spritzed it with water and flicked gold watercolor all over it. Once that was dry, I grabbed a sentiment from the stamp set and inked it up with VersaFine onyx black ink, using my die cut panel as a guide. Then I added foam squares and strips to the back of the die cut panel and adhered them together. I used liquid glue to attach the whole thing to a card base and, voila, it’s all done.

For this second panel, I used cracked pistachio, broken china and wilted violet distress oxides on the background panel. Then after spritzing water, I flicked a pearl watercolor over the whole panel. It gives a great shimmer in the light. I used my die cut panel for a guide again and stamped another sentiment from the stamp set included in the kit. Adding the same foam squares and strips to the back I popped the panel in place and adhered this to a card base.

If you’ve followed me for long, you know I love getting messy in the craft room so these cards were extra fun! My fingers are always rainbow when I’m finished and it just makes me smile. I hope you found a little inspiration to create something wonderful.

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