Pretty Pink Posh – Happy Summer

Hello there! Thanks for stopping by today! I have a bright and happy summer card to share featuring some Pretty Pink Posh images paired with Trinity Stamps and Lawn Fawn dies to help create my scene. I hope you like it!

To create my card, I chose the images I wanted to use on the Summer Surfboards, Summer Friends and Playful Puppies sets from Pretty Pink Posh. I stamped and colored them with my copic markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them all out. Then for my scene building, I die cut the elements from white cardstock using the Trinity Stamps Slimline scalloped panels, stitched panels, scenic borders and great outdoors borders.

I inked up my layers with distress oxide inks. For the sky I used the puffy cloud stencil with spun sugar and picked raspberry. For the water I used mermaid lagoon and peacock feathers. Then for the sand I came in with tea dye and gathered twigs. After each panel was inked up I spritzed them with water and then flicked the darker color of ink on them. Once the sand was complete and dry, I came back in with the Lawn Fawn sandy beach accents dies to create the mounds to slip my surfboard into.

Moving on to assembly, I used liquid glue to adhere all of the layers together including the surfboards. Then I popped that panel in my MISTI and stamped a sentiment from Summer Surfboards in the sky. I added foam tape to the back of my panel and popped it on the white slimline scalloped panel. Then I added foam squares to the boy and his pup and popped them in place last. Finally, I used liquid glue to adhere the whole thing to a card base.

For finishing touches, I added white gel pen accents to the images and glossy accents to the puppy’s nose, tongue and tag.

This card is so happy and was a blast to create! I am very ready for summer break and all the adventures the come with it!

Lawn Fawn – Beary Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day to all of the amazing moms out there! I hope you have a wonderful day and feel loved and celebrated by those around you.

Today I’m sharing a fun Mother’s Day card I created with a few Lawn Fawn goodies I’ve been neglecting. Let’s start today with a list of products used.

Products used:
Lawn Fawn Den Sweet Den stamps and dies
Lawn Fawn Stitched Dens
Lawn Fawn Bannertastic stamps and dies
Lawn Fawn Simple Stitched Hillside Border dies
Lawn Fawn Mom + Me stamps
Lawn Fawm Dad + Me stamps
Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink
Lawn Fawn Kiddie Pool and Mermaid ink
Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Chill paper pad
Lawn Fawn Knock on Wood paper pad
Glossy Accents
Wink of Stella glitter brush pen
Scrapbook Adhesives foam squares
Tombow Multi Mono liquid adhesive
Copic markers

I pulled out the Den Sweet Den stamp set and chose some images to fill my scene. I stamped them and colored them in with my copic markers. Next, I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and started arranging things. Then I dug in my paper stash and pulled out some Lawn Fawn patterned paper to create the scene layers.

For the den I chose the light and dark brown Knock on Wood paper and die cut the two largest layers. For the inside of the den I used Perfectly Plaid Chill paper with yellow Knock on Wood for the floor. I die cut the top of the yellow wood grain paper with a stitched hillside border. Phew! With all of that finished, let’s start assembling.

I adhered the den layers together with liquid glue and added foam tape to the back of the panel. Then I glued the plaid paper to a white card base and added the floor as well. Next, I used my den layers as a guide to adhere the images in place so that nothing was too far to one side and covered up. Then I removed the backing paper and actually adhered the den layers down. I added some foam squares behind half of the sign and liquid glue on the other part and popped it in place next.

For my sentiment, I pulled out Bannertastic and stamped the outline. Then I pulled sentiments from Mom + Me and Dad + Me, curved them on my MISTI tool and stamped them inside the banner. Next, I used Lawn Fawn dye inks to fill in the banner with the coordinating stamps. Finally, I die cut it, added foam squares and popped it on the top of my card design.

For finishing touches on this sweet card, I added glossy accents to the nail hanging the sign, bear noses, coffee mug, book spine and lamp pull knob. I added a little black glaze pen to the baby bear’s eye and Wink of Stella glitter brush pen to the frame, coffee steam and lamp shade.

Isn’t this scene just adorable! I love how these “winter” products can really be used all year round for different themed cards. It’s so much fun!

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

Pear Blossom Press – Hope Your Day Glows

Hey friends! I’m super excited to be back with a second card guest designing for Pear Blossom Press! Today I have a card featuring some awesome Lawn Fawn products and the Pear Blossom Press EZ Lights!

Here’s a look at the finished card before we dive into the process of creating it. Isn’t it just too cute! We don’t have fireflies where I live but I always thought it would be a really cool thing to be able to sit outside and watch them at night. So, I made a card thinking of that while I got inky. Let’s get started!

To make things simple, I inked up all my panels at once with my distress oxide inks. After each panel was inked I smooshed the ink pads on my glass mat, spritzed it with water and then flicked the watered down ink on the panel for extra texture. this is a new favorite technique that I do pretty much every time I pull out distress inks to play with.

Once the panels were dry, here are the dies I used to cut each panel. The green from the bayou backdrop die, saving that large portion in the center to come back and cut the grass and cattails from later on. The brown was cut from a hillside border first and the same stitched rectangle as the peach panel after so they layered nicely. And last, the little pond die comes from the bayou backdrop set.

Next, I stamped, colored and die cut some cute fireflies from the Lawn Fawn Little Fireflies set. I thought it would be fun to have front-facing and not so I did a combination of both images.

Next, I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment from Little Fireflies on the lake piece. Then, using the frame and lake as guides, I stamped and heat embossed “press me” on the dirt hill where I want my button to be. This word stamp comes from the Lawn Fawn Push Here stamp set. It’s great for lots of different types of interactive cards. Then I used liquid glue to adhere all of my layers together. Then I took a circle die that happens to come in the Little Fireflies set (for their glowing bottoms if you use that stamp) and cut 3 circles out of the background so the lights could shine through.

Next, using scrappy tape, I adhered the battery pack to the back of my card front so it lines up with the “press me” on the front. Then I used the same tape to adhere the lights in place over the holes. I flipped my card over, added the fireflies and then adjusted the lights a bit until they lit the fireflies up how I liked. Once there were perfect, I added a few more strips of tape to securely hold everything in place.

Finally, I added a double layer of foam tape to the back of my whole panel and added it to a white card base.

I know there is a lot going on but I just couldn’t leave things the way they were. For finishing touches, I added black glaze pen to the eyes, unicorn Stickles to the wings and glossy accents to their bums! I just think this is too funny and makes me smile!

Ta-da!!! Isn’t this just the cutest ever?!? I am so extremely happy with how this fun card turned out! It’s a good thing these batteries last a while because I keep playing with it on my craft desk.

I hope you found some inspiration to create something wonderful and don’t be afraid to try light up cards. They are so much fun and Pear Blossom Press has taken any difficulties away with their amazing products!

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 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!

MFT & Lawn Fawn – CAS Set of 5

Hey friends! I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend and has a great start on the new week already! I’m popping in with a super fun set of 5 cards that I made with goodies from ScrapbookPal. I used the new MFT Stamps Heart Rays die and paired it with some fun Lawn Fawn sets to create a set of 5 cards. Here’s a look at all of them.

To create these cards I started by die cutting the MFT Stamps Heart Rays die 5 times from different colors of cardstock. Then I mixed them all up and used a little scotch tape on the back to hold the pieces together. Then I added foam tape to the back and set them aside.

I knew I wanted a fairly clean and simple design so I cut 5 white card bases and 5 – 3.75×5 inch white panels and lined the back of those with foam tape as well.

Next I pulled out my Lawn Fawn stamp sets and picked a variety to play with. I decided on images and colored them all with my copics, then used the coordinating dies for the sets to cut the images out. I used a combination of liquid glue and foam squares to adhere the images to the hearts and the white panels. I adhered the panels to the card bases and then used my MISTI to stamp sentiments on the bottom portion of each card front.

For this card, I used the Manatee-rific set. For finishing touches, I just added some glossy accents to the seashells and unicorn Stickles to the bubbles.

This card features images from the Meow You Doin? set. I love that playful kitty! I finished things off here with just a little glossy accents on the kitty’s nose.

I think this card is super fun and playful with the wonky sentiment and those cute images from Toadally Awesome. I finished this card off with unicorn Stickles on the wings of the fly and dragonfly.

I absolutely LOVE this cute little axolotl and couldn’t believe I hadn’t inked him up yet! Therefore, I knew I had to add him to one of these cards. This set is called I Like You (a lotl) and I love it (a lotl!). I finished things off here with unicorn Stickles on the bubbles.

Last but not least, I had a little dino fun with Rawrsome and added this sweet triceratops with a party hat to the last card. I added black glaze pen to the eyes, glossy accents to the horn and unicorn Stickles to the top of the party hat.

This is such a fun set of cards and could be customized with any sets you have in your stash, for any occasion you might need cards for. I hope you found some inspiration in today’s post to create something wonderful.

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

Lawn Fawn – For You Thanks a Latte

Hello everyone! I’m back today with another fun caffeinated creation for the Spring|Summer Coffee Lovers Hop! Today I’m featuring some adorable Lawn Fawn goodies along with the Caffeinated Crafting embellishment mix for my shaker from the Twiddler’s Nook shop. This mix is part of the special that we have going on this week. Head HERE to check that out!

I started my card by die cutting the outside in stitched mug from white cardstock and inked up the center with mermaid ink and a blending brush. Then I cut the frame 8 times from white cardstock and once from teal. Next I cut the mug again from acetate. I used liquid glue to adhere my layers together, leaving the teal and acetate off until I filled the mechanism with my shaker bits. For those I die cut the beans from the mug die set from gold cardstock and also added some of the bits from the Caffeinated Crafting mix. Once it was all sealed up, I adhered a pink heart to the center and die cut the spoon from gray cardstock, adding it with liquid glue too.

To set my scene, I cut a piece of Perfectly Plaid paper to A2 size and trimmed down a piece of card gray cardstock for a table to sit my mug on. I used the simple stitched hillside border to trim the top of that. I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from Thanks a Latte and used liquid glue to adhere my layers together, then I added those to a white card base.

Next, I die cut the scripty For You die 3 times from white cardstock and once from the same pink as the heart and used liquid glue to adhere them together. I wasn’t positive on my placement of this piece so I die cut the steam from vellum and glued it down. It ended up being mostly covered but it’s there for what it’s worth. Haha. Last, I added my mug and spoon and my card is all finished.

Are you playing along with the Coffee Lovers Hop? Be sure to head HERE to link up your caffeinated creations for chances to win tons of awesome prizes!

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

Birch Press Design – Congrats

Welcome to another wonderful week everyone! Today I’m popping in really quick to share a card that I made for a coworker who recently got married. I used some of the Birch Press Design layering dies, with a Lawn Fawn sentiment and some Trinity Stamps baubles.

I started by die cutting all 3 layers to the Viola Plate layer set from white cardstock. I used liquid glue to adhere them together and then chose a light green card base to glue those to. I pulled out my Lawn Fawn Scripty Thanks die and cut it from silver glitter cardstock, the same green as the card base and white and glued them together with liquid glue as well. I added some foam squares to the back and popped it in place.

I love the look the shifted sentiment gives and how much that teeny bit of glitter cardstock adds to the whole design. It’s so pretty!

Last, I finished the design off by gluing some Trinity Stamps Stunning Silver Baubles to the centers of the “flower” areas on the Viola die cuts.

Isn’t this so pretty? It would be beautiful for so many different occasions as is or swapping out the sentiment takes it to a whole other level of possibilities.

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

Lawn Fawn – Hello & Thanks Embroidery Cards

Hello everyone!!! I’m starting off your week with a big batch of really fun cards featuring Lawn Fawn and Avery Elle goodies. These embroidery dies came out from Lawn Fawn a few years ago and, while I thought they were cool, it didn’t totally interest me at the time. Fast forward to now and I like stitching on paper quite a lot so I picked them both up recently and decided to give them a shot. Obviously I had a problem stopping because I whipped these up in a weekend and was eager to make more.

I did 3 hello and 3 thanks style cards and used different paper and stamps to decorate each one but generally kept to the same layout. Here is a picture of just the hello set.

I had so much fun pulling out stamps that I haven’t used before or very often and was able to decorate these cute stitched panels. Let’s take a look at the thanks set closer too.

For this whole set of cards, I just chose some colors of cardstock I liked and cut them into 3×4 inch panels. I ran them through the die cut machine with the Lawn Fawn hello and thanks embroidery dies and sat in front of the TV stitching one evening. Then I die cut a Lawn Fawn scalloped rectangle frame from white cardstock 6 times and adhered the panels to them. With this part done, I dug through my stamps and paired different sets with the different stitched panels. Some I chose because of the cardstock and stitching colors and some because of the sentiment.

I stamped out the images I chose and colored them all with copics. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut them all out and put the cards together one at a time.

I know this will get long but I’m going to run through each card individually in case anyone is wondering what I used to create them.

This dino one is my absolute favorite. I have a serious affliction for dinosaurs and these guys are adorable. The paper is an old Avery Elle pad I had in my stash and the stamps are also Avery Elle – Rawr.

This flamingo set also happens to be Avery Elle also and is called Flamingos. It’s retired now but I love how well it framed up the sentiment here. I used the Lawn Fawn ocean waves border for the water panel on the background.

This cuteness uses a Lawn Fawn set from last spring called Hey Lady that I was gifted from a wonderful friend. Aren’t they so cute crawling around on that panel? The paper in the background is Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid. This was one of my favorite pads they created and I’m sad it’s retired now.

Next, we’re tooting our horns with Lawn Fawn Critter Concert stamps and the Perfectly Plaid Chill paper pad. My daughter and I actually scored this at a super discount this summer and she just had to have it. These critters are adorable and I love how the sentiments work together here.

Staying on track with Lawn Fawn, we’ve got those adorable squirrels from Let’s Go Nuts playing around our whole scene. That beautiful floral paper is from the Lawn Fawn Fall Fling paper pad. This card has a fall feel to it but it’s really just pretty and I would totally give it year round. I embellishments on this one are from Trinity Stamps called Glass Slipper.

And for the final card in this set, I chose these cute bunnies from Avery Elle Party Pals. The striped background is a stamp from MFT Stamps called diagonal stripes. The embellishments across this one are Nuvo Crystal Drops in dandelion yellow.

I always like to add those finishing touches to cards so most of these have glossy accents or unicorn stickles in various places too. Black glaze pen on critter eyes is always a must as well. Some also have white gel pen accents added for a little extra interest.

I truly hope that you enjoyed today’s post and found a little inspiration to create something wonderful.

I really appreciate you sharing your time with me, especially for such a long post. Have a fabulous day!

Trinity Stamps, Newton’s Nook and Lawn Fawn – Cheers!

Hey friends! We had a VERY special birthday in our family last week and I wanted to pop in to share one of the birthday cards I made to celebrate. My sister-in-law turned the big 21 and we couldn’t let it fall by the waist side.

I was able to pull from some of my favorite companies and create this super fabulous birthday card/gift certificate for her brother to give her. I started things off by stamping and coloring the Trinity Stamps Happy Hour set that came out last year. I used the coordinating dies to cut the images out. Next I began working on the background with the Newton’s Nook plaid stencil, some olive green and red ink and then I went over it a second time with Thermoweb transfer gel, and then gold decofoil. Pulling from all of those colors, I used the Newton’s Nook circle frames dies to cut a stitched circle from red glitter paper. Then I used a smaller Spellbinders circle die to cut an olive green one to layer.

I heat embossed Happy from Happy Hour on the green circle and die cut 21st from Trinity Stamps Marshmallow Number dies. I used the same ink from the stenciling to go over the top layer of the 21st so it coordinates. At this point I started layering things together and realized that the top of my card was sparse. I dug around and found the scripty cheers die from Lawn Fawn and thought it was the perfect match! I cut it from white cardstock and inked it up with the red and green from the background.

I am so excited about how awesome this card turned out! So much texture and depth with the different cardstocks, layers, heat embossing and decofoil. It’s exactly what I was hoping for.

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

Coffee Loving Cardmakers – Warm and Cozy Thanks!

Hey friends! I’m over on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog for one final installment of Tuesday Tea with Twiddler’s Nook for 2020! I’m still stocking my stash with thank you cards featuring some of my favorite winter and Christmas sets that I wasn’t ready to put away just yet.

Today features a few sets from Jane’s Doodles, dies from Trinity Stamps and a token “thanks” from a Lawn Fawn set. I just love these critters and that hot cocoa stand has me dreaming of snow and cocoa adventures.

For my card, I stamped and colored critters and other images from St. Nick, Warm and Cozy, and Hot Cocoa. Then I used my scan-n-cut to cut them all out and set to work on my background. I cut a slimline panel at 3.5×8.5 and another at 2×8.5 to create a snow bank. Using my images as a guide I used the Trinity Stamps slimline scenic borders die to create my snow. Then, I used that as a guide where to place my trees in the background.

I used Trinity Stamps blending buddy brushes to blend on some light blue ink coming from behind the snow bank and a little pink ink coming from the top for a soft sky.

I adhered my snow bank with foam tape for a little dimension and my images with a combination of liquid glue and foam tape to keep everything nice and level. Once those were all in place, I popped my panel in the MISTI and stamped the sentiment in the open area I left in the sky. I used similar copics to color the thanks as the sky so it coordinates.

I finished things off with some glossy accents on critter noses and beaks, and a scattering of Rainbow Blizzard clay snowflakes from Trinity Stamps in the sky. Last, I added some silver Wink of Stella glitter brush on the top of the snowbank and then blended it out a little with the clear glitter pen.

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