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!

Birch Press Design – Winter Thanks

Hello again! I’m over on the Birch Press Design blog today with a pair of thank you cards fit for winter thank yous that we’ll all be sending out soon.

I couldn’t totally decide on a color scheme so I decided to try both ideas and see if I liked them.

I used the Birch Press radial pinpoint plate, floral star and big sugar script sending paired with Trinity Stamps embellishments and the thanks from Lawn Fawn’s Big Thanks set.

The first card has a white bottom layer and gray background for an understated, simpler card but I think it’s beautiful.

Then the other idea I always have with Birch Press layering dies is to add a little bling to one of the layers. It just looks so cool every time! So I added a silver glitter layer to the star, white background and used vellum on the sentiment. Again, beautiful and I love it.

Do you like one more than the other? I think the first one would be better for mass producing as the glitter cardstock can get spendy but I think I like the bling more to be honest.

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

Lawn Fawn – Hap-pea Holidays!

Hey friends! It’s been a minute since I checked in. The holidays have me super busy and I took advantage of the lull in design team requirements to clean my craft room and wrap our gifts over the last week. Yesterday I had some time to play in the craft room and finally pulled out the adorable Lawn Fawn pea sets – Be Hap-pea and Peas on Earth.

I paired those two sweet sets with the MFT Stamps shutter card dies to create a fun, interactive card. Here’s the front with those sweet peas hanging out in their pod and that great Lawn Fawn Snow Day Remix paper.

Ta-da!!! Here’s the inside. Super simple but adorable and sure to make someone smile. Aren’t these peas just the cutest? And I’m totally a fan of those great puns that come in both stamp sets.

Here’s a look at the inside and the band together. I’m still getting the hang of these shutter cards but they are so much fun to create!

We have a few birthdays coming up so I think I’ll try another for one of those.

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

Coffee Loving Cardmakers – National Tea Day

Hey everyone! It’s a super special day because, not only is it Tuesday Tea with Twiddler’s Nook, but it’s actually National Tea day and we’re going to celebrate with a whole lot of fun! I’ve got a card share for you and then Amy will pop in with some information about a guest designer opportunity and link up at the bottom. Let’s get started with today’s card share!

Today I decided to pull out a fantastic set by The Cat’s Pajamas called Make Tea. I absolutely LOVE the critters in this set and had so much fun coloring them up. For this card, I stamped and colored them with my copics, then used my scan-n-cut to cut them all out. Next, I pulled out some Lawn Fawn snow day remix paper and the reverse stitched scalloped circle window dies to set my mini scene. 

After die cutting and assembling my papers, I used my MISTI to stamp a sentiment over this very chill tea party that’s going on. Since I chose to make this a last minute Christmas card with the patterned paper used, I pulled out the Trinity Stamps Merry Christmas Senti-mini set and stamped a quick Merry Christmas banner which is popped up with foam squares.

For finishing touches on my card, I added some glossy accents to the critter eyes and noses and their mugs. Then I used Wink of Stella glitter brush pen on the steam coming from the cups. Last, I glued a scattering of Trinity Stamps Cinnamon Red Hots Jelly Drop Hearts across the design.

AND THEN, on a whim, I decided to stamp on the inside of my card today too. I never do this but I have a couple of crafty friends who do and I always think it’s super cute. So I grabbed a bunny that I didn’t use on the front and another sentiment from Make Tea and stamped it in red ink to coordinate with the colors on the front. 

Now, it’s your turn to play! Head over to the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog for information on a chance to become a guest designer with us!

Coffee Loving Cardmakers – Shaker Ornament and Card Combo

Hi friends! It’s time for Tuesday Tea and I’m really excited to share with you today so grab your cuppa and settle in. Today’s project is a card with a removable shaker ornament on it! I just love how it turned out!

I started my card thinking it would be a shaker snow globe with the cute bear and her coffee inside it. Once everything was colored and die cut I realized that she’s just a bit too big for my liking so I switched gears.

I used the Ready, Set, Snow set by Lawn Fawn to create the snow globe shaker and decided it would be fun to have the bears on either side. Even better, if I use foam tape behind the bears, they hold the ornament in place for a cute card front and removable ornament! I’m quite please with myself in this moment, you have no idea.

Here’s a little peeky peeky at the card and ornament separate too. I wanted to hide something behind but nothing I tried worked for me so I let go and left it how it is. I did, however, decorate the back of the shaker so it doesn’t matter how it hangs on the tree.

Simple but super cute and the glitter paper I used for the snowflake will catch the lights on the tree nicely I think.

How are your Christmas cards coming along? I still need to come up with one of those simple, mass produce-able designs but things like today’s card keep popping in my head and I can’t resist!

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