Happy New Year! I created this card for a challenge I was hosting today for an online cardmaking group. It was my first card of 2019. It had been a while since I created a card using patterned papers, especially one that wasn’t for the holidays! So it was fun to put this together. I colored the cute penguin image with Copic markers and layered the patterned papers. Very simple, but bright and cheery! Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful 2019.

I created this card for a friend. I love the sentiment–eating cake is important on one’s birthday! I colored the stamped image with Copic markers and layered it up using the sketch listed below as a reference. I was really pleased with the way it turned out and that I was able to use everything from my stash. I’ve had most of the supplies for years! That makes a card even better! Thanks for visiting.

Halloween + Cute Creatures

Today I’ve got a two-fer! I’ve made two Halloween cards with Lawn Fawn products featuring a number of cute creatures!

  • Stamps – Lawn Fawn – Spooktacular
  • Dies –
    • Lawn Fawn – Spooktacular, Stitched Windy Backdrop, Stitched Hillside Borders, Spooky Fence Border, and Trick or Treat Border
    • My Favorite Things – Inside & Out Stitched Rounded Square
  • Cardstock – Bazzill and Lawn Fawn Sparkle Cardstock (Autumn)
  • Sequins – Doodlebug Designs

I created a spooky scene with some cute stamped images and a lot of dies! I colored the creatures with Copic markers. I cut the spooky fence from Lawn Fawn sparkle cardstock (Autumn collection). It provided nice contrast among the matte black cardstock layers. The sequins provided a bit more sparkle to spice up the card.

 

  • Stamps – Lawn Fawn – Pick of the Patch, Spooktacular and Some Bunny
  • Dies –
    • Lawn Fawn – Pick of the Patch, Spooktacular and Some Bunny
    • Tim Holtz/Sizzix – Swirling Stars
  • Ranger Distress Oxide inks -Seedless Preserves, Black Soot and Peeled Paint
  • Patterned paper – Authentique Nightfall Five
  • Cardstock – Paper Arts gold metallic mirror paper and Bazzill
  • Ribbon – Offray

I began this card by making a Ranger Distress Oxide ink background and then die-cut it so that the shiny gold below peeks through the star openings. I colored the bunny, pumpkin and squirrels with Copic markers. I created this card with a bunny witch for a swap. The recipient is a fan of rabbits, so I wanted to be sure to incorporate one into the scene. It is always fun to combine several sets to build the perfect scene and I did that for both of these cards.

Thanks for visiting today and Happy Halloween!

Piles of pumpkins and kitties

  • Stamps – Newton’s Nook – Newton’s Pumpkin Patch
  • Patterned paper – Authentique – Nightfall Seven
  • Embossing powder – Ranger Wendy Vecchi – Orange Blossom
  • Cardstock – Bazzill
  • Copic markers
  • Ranger Distress inks: Carved Pumpkin, Peeled Paint and Hickory Smoke

This is a pretty adorable image of the kitties among the pumpkins by Newton’s Nook. Their animal designs are some of my favorites! I colored the image with Copic markers and trimmed it out so no white was showing. I inked the edges with a black Sharpie to cover any white paper edges. The sentiment is heat embossed, adding a little shine to the words. I trimmed the sentiment flag-style. Before I adhered the foreground, I applied some Distress inks to the patterned paper, beginning with Hickory Smoke and then adding Peeled Paint ink for a colorful shadow beneath the image. I popped up the image with dimensional adhesive and then edged the panel with Carved Pumpkin Distress Ink. Thanks for visiting today.

A Thrilling Birthday!

  • Stamps – Lawn Fawn “Coaster Critters”
  • Dies – Lawn Fawn “Coaster Critters,” “Coaster Critters Slide on Over Add-on,” “Outside In Stitched Scalloped Square Stackables,” and “Stitched Hillside Borders”
  • Patterned paper – Lawn Fawn “High Seas” from Beachside Collection
  • Ranger/Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink – Blueprint Sketch, Faded Jeans, Broken China
  • Cardstock – Bazzill
  • Copic markers
  • Detail White Embossing Powder

I was very proud to create this interactive card and have it work correctly the first time! This is Trenton’s birthday card (20th! Yikes!). He always likes critter cards, so I think it will be a hit.

I started out by creating the Distress Oxide paper using three different blue inks and lots of water drops. I used this for the sky in my scene. I cut it out using the scalloped square die and did the same with bright green cardstock. I then cut “hills” from the green and layered them onto the blue piece. I stamped, colored (with Copics) and cut out all of the roller coaster and critter pieces. I die-cut the slider with the roller coaster in place and then popped up the background, attached the pieces and inserted a penny with the roller coaster car adhered to it, into the slot. The bunny in the roller coaster car slides along the roller coaster very nicely! Love it! I heat-embossed the sentiment onto a strip of red cardstock and cut fish-tail flags on either end. I adhered all of the pieces onto a card base, making a 5-1/2″ X 5-1/2″ square card. I confess to playing with it, sliding the bunny car back and forth, before I put it in the mail. It is only slightly used!

Happy Birthday, Trenton!

Challenge: Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #37 – Something Old, Something New – I used “Stitched Hillside Borders” and the “High Seas” paper with the “Coaster Critters” stamps and dies, which I had never used before.

Little Band Shadow Box

 

  • Stamps – Lawn Fawn “Critter Concert”
  • Dies – Lawn Fawn “Critter Concert,” “Shadow Box Card,” “Shadow Box Card Theater Add-On,” and “Little Music Notes”
  • Patterned paper – Lawn Fawn “Really Rainbow” petite paper pad
  • Cardstock

I love the Lawn Fawn stamp and die sets featuring talented animals playing band instruments. They’re the best! Then when I saw the little theater stage pieces that I could add onto the shadow box, I knew I had to build one! The really cool thing is that it will fold flat and slip right into an envelope if I want to mail one to someone.

Here is a shot from above the box–it is hard to share a good view of this little 3-D box.

I colored the animals with Copic markers. I then created a small scene on the stage with the bear and bird, and also decorated the sides of the box with other animals in the band and some musical notes. It is so fun to work with these critters and the little theater. Thanks for stopping by.
