Jane’s Doodles – Scentsational Shadow Box Card

Hello everyone! Thanks for stopping by. Today I have a fun little shadow box featuring the Jane’s Doodles Stinks digital stamp set. These skunks are some of my favorites from Jane and I was all too happy to color them up for a spring themed card to share.

I printed my images and sentiment on white cardstock and colored them with my copic markers. I used a Pink & Main large sentiment banner die to cut out the sentiment and the scan-n-cut the cut out my images.

Then I used the Lawn Fawn shadow box die set along with the spring add on for the flower row in the back and park add on for the grass border and trees on the front. I used 1/8″ scrappy tape to adhere the box pieces and liquid glue for the images and details.

I always write my message on the back of these cards and thought it would be fun to continue the scene on the back this time too. I added another grass border by trimming off the tabs and that cute skunk!

I’m excited to share this card with someone for a fun, unexpected smile!

Lawn Fawn – Hay There Tiny Farm

Hi there! I’m popping in this afternoon to share a card I created last night with the Lawn Fawn Tiny Farm cuties and the Build-a-Barn dies. I just added these to my stash and had so much fun playing with them! I can’t wait to make a reveal wheel card with them next.

I stamped and colored all 4 characters from the Tiny Farm set with my copic markers. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut them all out. Next, I cut the pieces for the Build-a-barn and used liquid glue to put it all together.

I wanted to try something different for the background of my card so I chose 3 different scraps of yellow cardstock and one green and cut the strips for the Simple Stripes Portrait die. I adhered them to a panel with liquid glue two strips of each yellow and ending with the green on the bottom for my ground. I wasn’t a huge fan of how flat it all looked so I took my distress oxide blender for spiced marmalade and lightly inked up the edges of the yellow with just the ink left on it from last time I used it. Then I did the same for the green area with rustic wilderness. Then I splattered gold watercolor all over the panel.

I added the chicken to the window opening in the top and replaced the red cardstock that cut out of it behind him to help secure him in place. Then I added the cow with liquid glue, added foam tape to the back of the barn and popped it in place. I added foam squares behind the farmer and pig and added them next.

I wanted a larger sentiment than the one in the Tiny Farm set so I pulled out Hay There and used the same one from that set to stamp and heat emboss on black cardstock. I trimmed it into a strip and added it to the top left with foam squares.

For finishing touches I came in with the same gold watercolor as the splatters and painted the star decoration on the barn. Then I thought it would be fun to add a little speech bubble by the chicken in the top to make sure the recipient’s eye is drawn that direction to see the hiding critter.

I stamped and heat embossed that and the heart inside from Hay There and cut it out with the coordinating die. After popping it up with a foam square I also painted that heart with the gold watercolor to tie everything together.

Isn’t this adorable?!? I’m so tickled with the way it turned out. I just makes me smile!

Lawn Fawn – I Love You Rain or Shine Mini Slimline

Hey friends! I’m popping in today with a fun, mini slimline card to enter into the Lawn Fawnatics challenge. I didn’t get a chance to play along with the last one and really loved the vision board so I pulled my color palette from there but created a scene to go with this challenge too.

I chose images from Beary Rainy Day and colored them with my copic markers using the vision board as a reference to my color palette. I had a blast doing this and trying to match the colors with theirs.

Next, I cut a mini slimline panel at 3×6 inches and inked it up with distress oxide inks – rustic wilderness is my ground and faded jeans, chipped sapphire and black soot are my sky colors. I splattered water on the panel and let it dry. Then I taped down my Rainy Sky stencil and spread fairy dust stencil paste through it.

While that was drying I added foam squares to my images and then stamped and heat embossed sentiments to trim into strips. Once the panel was dry I added it to a card base and started adding everything to my scene. Some of the images are added with liquid glue directly to the card front but all the critters and sentiment strips are popped up.

Then I finished the design off with some glossy accents on the water and buttons on the jacket, unicorn stickles on the clouds and black glaze pen on the bears’ noses.

It’s a little out of my typical comfort zone to create a darker sky background but I love how it helps the images pop so much and show that they are really enjoying this rainy day.

Coffee Loving Cardmakers – Make a Splash

Happy Tuesday everyone! It’s time for Tuesday Tea with Twiddler’s Nook on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers again. Today I’ve got a fun little scene card to share featuring the adorable Lawn Fawn squirrels from a couple of sets and the lift the flap tree backdrop die to help set the scene. I’m also playing along with the new Lawn Fawnatics challenge that just started – build a scene.

To start this card, I pulled out the backdrop die and my stamps and laid everything out to make sure I stamped enough images to fill everything. I colored them with my copic markers and cut them out with the coordinating dies. I stamped and heat embossed a combination of sentiments from a couple of set and trimmed those into strips.

Next, I cut the lift the flap tree backdrop from kraft cardstock and inked up the edges and flap openings with walnut ink and a blending brush. Then I cut a blue panel for a background and added the new rainy day stencil on that with blue ink.

I added my images behind the flaps on dark brown scraps of cardstock and adhered the trees to the rainy day panel. Then I added the rest of the images with a combination of liquid glue and foam squares, including the sentiment strips.

To finish everything off, I added some white gel pen accents to various parts of the images along with a few red clay hearts from Twiddler’s Nook sweethearts clay embellishment mix.

I had fun mixing and matching different sets to create my own scene. I think next time I would add more raindrops so they showed through the trees more and maybe even add some on top of the trees too.

Hello everyone! Today I’m on the Thermoweb blog with a tutorial on these two fabulous cards. It’s gingham week and I chose my favorite gingham stencil from Newton’s Nook to pair with the beautiful light blue flocking and then threw in some foiling and paper piecing for fun!

I had a blast creating these cards and love how the color palette turned out. Be sure to head to the Thermoweb blog for all the details.

Coffee Loving Cardmakers – Thanks a Latte Critter Hugger

Happy Tuesday everyone! It’s time for tea over on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers. Today we’re playing with die cuts to create a sweet critter hugger thank you card featuring Lawn Fawn goodies that I’ve been neglecting.

Let’s be real…I need a bundle of thank you cards these days and I also finally ordered the spring critter hugger dies which made me want to play with these cuties in the meantime. Lol! I’m a total problem.

I simply die cut the pieces to make a squirrel critter hugger and colored the edges with E30 copic markers to give it a little depth. I used liquid glue to adhere the pieces and set it aside to dry while I created my background.

For the background, I die cut the landscape polka heart backdrop from white cardstock. I used a blending brush and guava ink to ink up the edges and then splattered some watered down guava ink all over the panel. I layered it over a piece of teal paper from my stash with liquid glue and adhered it to a white card base.

Next, I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from Thanks a Latte and cut it into a strip. I popped it up with a foam strip and adhered my squirrel in place too.

For finishing touches I added glossy accents to the squirrel’s nose and unicorn Stickles to the cheeks and coffee mug. Super fast to put together and absolutely adorable too!

Jane’s Doodles – You’re So Weird

Hey crafty friends! I’m back with a pair of super fun cards featuring the Weird digital stamp set from Jane’s Doodles. I just love these images and had so much fun getting inky creating scenes for them.

I started by printing out the whole set of images and sentiments from the Weird digital stamp set. I used my copic markes to color them and the scan-n-cut to cut them out. Then I cut 2 of the sentiments out with sentiment banner dies and set it all aside while I made a horrendously awesome inky mess!

For my first card, I inked up 2 strips of white cardstock with distress oxides in various green colors. One was crushed olive and mowed lawn while the other had those colors plus twisted citron for some bright areas. Then I took an A2 panel and inked it with salty ocean and tumbled glass distress oxide. I spritzed this panel with water and blotted it dry. Then I flicked some watered down blueprint sketch on the whole panel for added texture and interest.

I cut the green panels with the Lawn Fawn tropical vines and tropical leaves dies and arranged them on my blue panel. The vines were longer than my panel so I cut them and inserted the smaller sections in different areas to fill in the scene more. Once everything was where I liked it, I used liquid glue to adhere them all down.

Next, I popped up my sentiment and sloth image with foam squares and added a little glossy accents to his nose. To help the eyes pop a little I added black glaze pen to those and my card is all finished.

But we’re not done yet. Let’s get a whole new set of colors out and have some more inky fun!

This time I inked up white cardstock strips with twisted citron and and crushed olive distress oxide inks and spritzed them with water. I flicked watered down mowed lawn distress oxide ink and gold watercolor on those panels too. Once they were dry I die cut them with the Lawn Fawn tropical leaves border die and set them aside.

For my background panel, I inked up seedless preserves and wilted violet distress oxide ink on an A2 panel. I spritzed it with water and flicked more gold watercolor on it too. It seemed a bit brighter than I wanted so I added a little tea dye distress oxide around the edges after the watercolor was dry.

For assembly, I added the purple panel to a card base and glued one strip of leaves to the top. Then I cut a white cardstock strip 1.5 inches wide and popped it up with foam tape. I added a strip of washi tape before popping my image and sentiment banner up with foam tape as well.

For finishing touches on this card I added glossy accents to the sloth’s nose and flower centers. Then I glued down a few red clay hearts for a little extra something. I think they are so sweet and love the touch they add.

I hope you enjoyed today’s cards and found some inspiration to create something wonderful!

Lawn Fawn – Tiny Gift Box Add-on Fun

Happy Wednesday friends! Today I have a card (although I actually made 2 of the same one) and a couple of treat boxes to share with you. I absolutely love the Lawn Fawn Tiny Gift Box die set and all of the critter add-ons they have for it. Sometimes I’m not in the mood to color and playing with all die cut creations is so much fun!

I am only missing a few of the add-ons for this die set and the ladybug was one of them…until last week! Yippee!!! So naturally I had to create with it right away and thought it would be fun to make a Valentine creation. So I cut the pieces to create a one-dimensional ladybug, not a box and adhered them all together. Tip: I don’t have a cardstock that I like for skin tone so I cut that piece from white and colored it with E50 and E51 copic markers instead.

For my background, I used the Lots of Hearts stencil on an A2 size white panel and inked one layer up with ballet slippers ink and the other with chili pepper ink. Then I ran the panel through my die cutter with the Simple Stripes Portrait die. It just gives the background added texture and interest. After cutting it out, I used liquid glue to adhere it to a white card base.

Next, I cut the dimensional banner from the Fancy Wavy Banners die set from black cardstock and heat embossed a sentiment from Wavy Sayings in white. I folded and adhered the banner and added foam squares to the back before adding it to the bottom center of my card front. Then I used a large action wobbler to adhere my lady bug above that so it flies! It’s SO CUTE!!!

Since these cards are going to two very special recipients, I took a moment to stamp extra fun things inside the card too. I used images from Hey Lady, another Wavy Sayings sentiment and finished it off with a second sentiment from the Scent With Love Add-On stamp set. I colored the ladybugs really quick, signed these cuties from my family and then went in the mail today!

Here’s a little video of the ladybug on the front in action.

However, after playing with the ladybug I had the itch to make more. Another fun thing I like to do with these dies is create themed boxes for holidays and special occasions…like Valentine’s Day!

So I pulled out the dies and created a couple of fun boxes while I was at it. I created a pink duck and a red skunk! Aren’t they so fun in non-traditional colors? I think so! I’m excited to add a little treat and surprise some people next Monday!

Welcome to a fresh new week everyone! I’m stopping by today to share that a couple of weeks ago I posted my first YouTube video…it was pretty horrible but I had to kick myself to stop making excuses and just try it.

From that I had a fantastic friend reach out and offer to help me. So today I’m sharing that I posted a second video of this adorable Bee Yourself card.

I would also really love to know if you’d like me to still write up the usual blog post when I share a video or not. I know everyone has different preferences so please let me know in the comments.

Jane’s Doodles – Stinks

Welcome everyone! Today I’m over on the Jane’s Doodles blog with a super sweet card featuring the new digital stamp set – Stinks. I absolutely adore these skunks and had so much fun creating this card.

I printed the whole set on copic xpress paper and colored them all with my copic markers. Then I used the scan-n-cut to cut them out. I chose these two sitting together and set the others aside for another project later on.

I cut a piece of white cardstock and used the new Lawn Fawn Lots of Hearts background stencil. I inked the first layer up half and half green and blue and the second layer half and half purple and pink. The colors blend together in the middle. Then I took a piece of green cardstock and cut some grass. I adhered it to the stenciled panel with foam tape and inked the bottom edge for a little dimension.

I added the skunks with foam squares, die cut a sentiment with a Pink & Main sentiment strip and popped it up as well. Then I added foam tape to the back of the panel and popped it up on a white card base.

This is silly and a bit sad but you all know how I love my glossy accents…especially on critter noses and beaks. Well, I went to add it and my nozzle clogged…it happens. But when I tried to clear the blog I ruined my pin and couldn’t find anything in my whole house narrow enough to get in there. So I regained my composure and decided it would be fun to add unicorn Stickles to the noses and beaks instead. I also added a little dot in the center of the flower. Last, I went ahead and added black glaze pen on the eyes to help them stand out too.

Needless to say, I popped on and ordered a new fine tip for my glossy accents and I’m anxiously awaiting its arrival. But on a good note, this card is super cute and the sparkly stickles give a little extra whimsy effect which I love!
