Lawn Fawn – Fortune Teller Tabby

Happy weekend crafty friends! I”m back with another Tag Time Saturday because, you guessed it, we are headed to another dance competition for me daughter.

After last time and finally getting to see the shows for the first time I switched gears to play off one of the girls’ performances for today’s tag.

I started with the Lawn Fawn Fortune Teller Tabby set and stamped the kitty to color with my copic markers. After that, I used the coordinating die to cut her out. I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment, using a sentiment strip die to cut that out too.

For my tag shape, I used the Lawn Fawn Puffy Stars dies. I took a scrap of white cardstock and ink smooshed different yellows all over it. Then I cut three sizes of stars from the panel plus two additional white stars from the largest one. I used liquid glue to adhere all the inked stars together and popped my fortune teller up with foam squares. I used a combo of liquid glue and foam strip to add the sentiment.

On one of the white stars, I stamped a sentiment from Lawn Fawn Lucky Stars and wrote a message to my daughter. Then, on the second white star I wrote her name and school so they know where to deliver it to. I layered them together and used a Fiskars punch to punch a hole and thread baker’s twine through.

To add a little whimsy to the fortune teller theme, I took the Pink & Main scratch off sticker sheets and die cut a circle to stick over the crystal ball. I used washi tape to stick a Pink & Main scratcher to the inside star so she can reveal the secret message when she gets it!

For finishing touches I just added glossy accents to the kitty’s nose and white gel pen highlights to the image.

Lawn Fawn – Not a Creature Was Stirring…

Hey friends! Today I bring you a minor reprieve from my obsession with all things Halloween to bring you something also completely out of season that makes my heart so happy…a Christmas card! Lol! I hope you enjoy it.

I took a moment to play with these sweet baking mice from the Lawn Fawn A Creature stamp set. I colored them with my copics and used patterned papers from an older Lawn Fawn paper pad – Snow Day Remix.

The scrap of red cardstock I had was already 4.25×4 inches so I just cut it in apart a 1.25 inches on the 4.25 inch side and popped them up on a white card base with foam tape. I also had a scrap of the green background paper that I slid in place with liquid glue and then popped up all my images with foam squares.

I stamped and heat embossed the sentiments on black cardstock and used my paper trimmer to cut them into strips before adding them with foam strips too.

For finishing touches I added glossy accents to the mouse noses, holly berries and candy cane. Then I added stardust Stickles to the gumdrops on the gingerbread house for some sparkle.

Jane’s Doodles – You Warm My Heart

Welcome friends! I have a sweet watercolor card to share with you today featuring Jane’s Doodles stamps and stencil, paired with my new LH Colors watercolors for some sparkle and texture in the background.

I knew I wanted to create a card with these sweet kitties and pups from the Jane’s Doodles Cats and Dogs digital stamp set, so I printed them out and colored them with my copic markers. I used the scan-n-cut to cut the image out and set it aside to play with a watercolor background.

I cut an oversized panel of watercolor paper and slopped some water on it with a big brush. Then I added limeade and pool party from the LH Colors Summer Fun collection randomly on the paper. I heat dried it a couple of times in the middle to get some layers but when I was finished I wanted it to have more texture. So, I pulled out the Hearts stencil and inked it with salvaged patina distress oxide ink. Then I splattered some watered down twisted citron distress oxide on the panel to bring in the limeade watercolor. Once the panel was dry I cut it down with the largest of the Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables dies.

Last, I inked a white panel with twisted citron distress oxide ink for my base panel but didn’t like how bright it was so I toned it down with tea dye distress oxide very lightly. I glued that panel to a card base and popped up the watercolor panel with foam tape. Before adding my critters, I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from Love You and cut it out with a Pink & Main Large Sentiment Strip die.

Finally, I added the sentiment strip and critters with foam squares on the lower right corner of the card. To finish things off I just added glossy accents to all of their noses.

Lawn Fawn – Happy Trails Thank You Cards

Hi again! Today I’m popping in with a pair of thank you cards featuring an older Lawn Fawn set called Happy Trails. It’s a 3×4 set that I’ve had for ages and I always have so much fun creating with it. Today I’m making two thank you cards because we just bought our first travel trailer and I wanted to do something for a couple of guys at the dealership that were super amazing with us!

I’m not usually one for making the same card twice so I created completely different cards using the exact same images. And I seriously love them both! I started by stamping the car, trailer and a bunch of trees and colored them all with my copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut everything out and split them into two piles to start making cards!

This is the first one I made. It’s a large stitched rectangle blended with distress oxide ink in mowed lawn, twisted citron, peacock feathers and salty ocean and spritzed with water. Then I cut the road border pieces from black and yellow cardstock, adhered them together and to the panel. I added the inside of the simple puffy cloud frames and trees with liquid glue. Then popped up the car, trailer and wavy banner with foam squares.

For finishing touches I added glossy accents to the wheel hubs and headlight on the car. Then I came in with a black glaze pen for the door knob and white gel pen accents on the windows.

After creating this bright daytime scene, I remembered that I hadn’t even cut apart my Forest Backdrop dies yet so that was a must for this next one!

The frame is cut from Knock on Wood patterned paper and everything else from cardstock in my stash. After cutting all of the pieces, I used liquid glue to adhere all the layers together and to the frame where they go. I also cut two different simple stitched hills – one from brown and the other from green for some layered ground elements. I adhered the hills to a blue panel and popped the Forest Backdrop up with foam strips.

Finally, I added the trees to the background with liquid glue, popped up the trailer and car with foam squares and also decided to add the moon and stars from the Forest Backdrop dies to the upper left corner. I finished the scene off with the same wavy banner on the upper right which balanced the design perfectly.

I added the same finishing touches to this card except for adding Wink of Stella glitter brush pen to the moon and stars in the sky.

Isn’t it so fun to create such different cards when you’re starting out with the same images and idea?!? I just love them and hope the guys do too!

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.

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!
