Lawn Fawn – Thankful For You

Thanks for stopping by today! I’m sharing a fun card that was inspired by my friend Tammy at Paper Pretty Boutique. She made a great design with the new Pretty Pink Post hedgehogs and while I love those hedgehogs I immediately wanted to try the design with what I had at home. I showed my daughter and told her my idea but she got SO EXCITED and shared a totally awesome idea that I had to jump on it immediately!

To make this awesome card, I die cut the largest rectangle from the Lawn Fawn large stitched rectangles set and then lightly marked it into four equal quadrants. Then I went searching through my dies to find something that would cut windows in all the sections. I ended up landing on the oval window from the shadow box die set. I die cut it four times and erased my pencil lines.

Next, using my windows as a guide, I used distress oxides to ink up the card front so the colors showed through each window and spritzed it with water. Going clockwise from top left, I used twisted citron and mowed lawn, scattered straw and mustard seed, spiced marmalade and wild honey, and tumbled glass and salty ocean.

Then I stamped, colored and die cut my images from the Tree Before n’ Afters set. I adhered my images to each window and chose a sentiment for my card. I liked how versatile this one was and how it perfectly fit in the center of the windows. After stamping that I moved on to finishing touches for my card.

For those I stamped additional things for interest in some of the windows like extra snowflakes and the windy lines for the leaves. Then I added white gel pen accents throughout, glossy accents to the apples, flower centers and leaves and Stickles to the butterflies and snowflakes. At this point I thought my card was missing something, so when it was completely dry, I went ahead and used my MISTI to stamp faces on the tree trunks for a little extra fun.

I love how this turned out and think this is a really fun card to send to someone any time of the year.

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

Mama Elephant – Just Wanted to Say…

Hi there! I’m back with another card from the bundle of Mama Elephant Stackable Cutie cards I made. This one was super quick to come together but it’s so adorable! I just love it!

To make this card I took some Perfectly Plaid Lawn Fawn paper and die cut it with a stitched rectangle. Then I cut the My Favorite Things Rectangle Peek-a-boo Window from that. Using the window as a guide I inked a pink shadow with my blending buddy brush, and then popped my frame and elephant up with foam tape.

Using my MISTI I stamped a speech bubble above the elephant with the same ink I used for the background. I also stamped part of a sentiment from the Trinity Stamps Hello Senti-mini set and popped it up with a foam strip. Next, I stamped the hello from the same set on the inside of the card in a light blue dye ink.

For finishing touches I added black glaze pen to the eyes, white gel pen accents and a scattering of clay hearts around.

A simple, super sweet card perfect for someone in my life!

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

Lawn Fawn – Magic Picture Changer Birthday Card

Hello everyone! I hope your week is going well. Thanks for stopping by to check out this fun magic picture changer card featuring Lawn Fawn stamps and dies. This card was a request and it turned out so fun I wanted to share it here too.

Here it is closed like it’s coming out of the envelope.

And here is a look at it opened up to reveal the eaten cake!

To make this card, I started with the Magic Picture Changer portion. I stamped my cakes from Birthday Before ‘n Afters and colored them in. Then die cut the pieces and assembled the mechanism. Next, I pulled out my patterned paper and started decorating the card front and the front of the interactive portion too. I did use the Magic Picture Changer Add On along with the original dies.

It seems kind of backward but this is when I pulled out my robots from Beep Boop Birthday to decide all the images I wanted to add to my card. After stamping and coloring them, I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

For assembly, I used foam tape on the back of the Magic Picture Changer and then a combination of liquid glue and foam tape on my images. Last, I popped the card in my MISTI and stamped the sentiment on the front and a simple “Happy Birthday!” on the inside. Both sentiments are from the Birthday Before ‘n Afters set.

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

Merry Christmas Card From Me to You

Merry Christmas Crafty Friends! I made one last Christmas card just to share with all of you today.

Just a simple card featuring Trinity Stamps narrow card and bookmark die set and Lawn Fawn’s Stamptember set Merry Christmouse.

I die cut all the components and glued them together. Then stamped, colored and die cut my images. After deciding placement I stamped and heat embossed my sentiment and then popped up my images.

These little mice are so stinking cute! They make me smile every time. I hope you all have a wonderful holiday filled with events and people who make you happy!

I appreciate you taking a moment to stop by. Merry Christmas! Have a fabulous day!

Peek-a-boo Pals Tag

Hello everyone! I hope you had a great weekend and are all ready for Christmas! I’ve been super busy with family holiday stuff but finally managed some time in the craft room to make a couple of last minute projects.

Today I’m sharing another Christmas tag. I loved the star-shaped tag I did before so I decided to try a heart. I love how it turned out!

I used the Lawn Fawn scalloped hearts and inside out stitched hearts paired with Avery Elle polar peek-a-boo pals stamps.

I die cut the scalloped heart from blue cardstock and then the inside out stitched heart 3 times from white. One went on the back with the recipient’s name and the other 2 got ink blended and glued to the front. Then I stamped, colored and die cut my pals and adhered them as well.

For finishing touches I used black glaze pen to the eyes and small noses and white gel pen accents throughout. Then I added glossy accents to the deer hooves and nose and penguin’s beak. I added Wink of Stella glitter brush pen to the antlers, hats and scarves and Stickles to the pompoms on the hats.

The last thing I did was punch a hole and thread some baker’s twine through it.

Super cute and I loved using non-traditional colors for a Christmas tag.

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

Today I wanted to share a bonus tag with you as well. But if you’re really here for the winners, you don’t have to wait, just scroll down to the bottom of this post. โค

This tag is a mash-up between Trinity Stamps and Lawn Fawn dies. I took the bear from Have an Ice Day, stamped, colored and die cut him and then started on my tag shape. I wanted something I hadn’t used but I didn’t have any other true tag die cuts so I made my own again. I die cut the add-on to the flippin’ awesome as my base in white and dark blue cardstock and again in iridescent vellum. Then cut the vellum with a simple stitched hillside border to make my ice.

Next, I took my blue tag base and splattered it with gold and pearl watercolor and adhered the ice to it. Then I glued the white tag to the back so I can add the recipient’s name later on. I popped up my bear with foam squares and added a holly jolly candy cane from Trinity Stamps to the bear’s hand.

For finishing touches I added glossy accents to the skates and bear’s nose. Then, I took my Wink of Stella glitter brush pen to the scarf, mittens and tops of the boots. I also added black glaze pen to the bear’s closed eye and then some ribbon through the hole I punched.

This is also one going under my tree for Christmas so the secret name was die cut and glued to the back just the the others. I hope you’ve enjoyed this series! Thank you for hanging out with me!

12 Days of Christmas Tags – Day 12

Oh my goodness everyone! We did it! We made it 12 days of so many fun tags! We started with lots of mass production ideas and then transitioned into those more personal gift tags. So many ideas!

Thank you so much for joining me! Words cannot express how fun and rewarding it is to hear that you enjoy what I create and maybe even get a little inspired to make something fun too.

On with the show for today’s tag! I pulled out my Lawn Fawn stamps and dies again because I really wanted to make this snow globe into a tag!

To do this one, I stamped, colored and die cut my images. Then die cut another plain white snow globe for the backing.

I assembled my images on the front, popping up the snowmen with foam squares and flying everything else down. But when it was time to adhere the two pieces I pulled out my tiny tags set and die cut the top of the circle ornament tag and glued it in between my snow globes! Voila! String hole! (Yes, I feel like a genius in this moment. ๐Ÿ˜‚)

For finishing touches on this fun tag I added glossy accents to the snowman noses and the globe label. Then I took my Wink of Stella glitter brush pen and went over the scarves, hats and Santa in the sky.

Once the glossy accents was dry, I added black glaze pen to the eyes and buttons and white gel pen accents throughout.

Look at all the shimmer and shine! You all have to know by now how much I love extra! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Very last, just like the others recently, I die cut the recipient’s name and glued it on the back, then added baker’s twine to the top.

12 Days of Christmas Tags – Day 10

Thanks so much for joining me again today. I’m having a blast making special tags for someone specific! Today I’m sharing another one that will be under our tree Christmas morning.

I decided to make a star shaped under the sea tag this time. Super simple but so much fun! I used all Lawn Fawn products on this tag. I stamped and colored the images with my copics, then die cut them all out and arranged my scene on the star tag.

After everything was adhered down I added white gel pen accents to the images, black glaze pen to the critter eyes, glossy accents to the lights on the seaweed tree and Wink of Stella glitter brush pen all over various images.

The gloss on the lights makes them look like they are lit and the glitter all over is so much fun!

I’m so happy with how this fun tag turned out. Last of all I die cut the recipient’s name and glued it on the back. But once again, that’s a secret for now. ๐Ÿ˜‰

12 Days of Christmas Tags – Day 4

Welcome back everyone! today I’ve got a set of 4 fun double tags to share with you. They are easy to make with just about anything in your stash.

To make each of these I cut a white circle tag – mine happen to be from Close to My Heart but tons of companies make them. This is where the sentiment is stamped and your to/from goes on the back.

Then I cut more of the same size tag in blues and a couple more from white to add clouds, ice and water. I stamped, colored and die cut my images and began building them all.

The images were from a bunch of Lawn Fawn winter sets: winter sparrows, winter otter, winter penguin, and winter unicorn. I always have fun playing around with the mini sets they come out with!

After the scenes were adhered together, I took the scene and coordinating sentiment tag and looped twine through them. These were super easy to come together and absolutely adorable! Also, perfect to personalize that gift for someone special in your life.

12 Days of Christmas Tags – Day 3

Hello everyone! Today I’m sharing 2 sets of the same tags. One take a little longer and the other is fabulous for mass production if you have lots to make. Let’s jump right in!

These tags are from the awesome Lawn Fawn sets – Slow Down and Enjoy and For You Deer. I was so excited when they came out that I’ve just made them over and over again. Sometimes they are tags, others are bookmarks. I also just hang the critters on things because they are so stinking fun to make!

Today, I did the same tags twice. The ones above are colored with copics which took a little bit of time. Not a ton but definitely more than the ones below.

These were cut from colored cardstock and then the accent colors were added with colored pencil. Both versions are super cute and really, the recipient could use them for bookmarks after they take them off of the gift too!

I never tire of the adorable Lawn Fawn critters. They’re just so much fun!
