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.

Deepest Thanks Lift the Flap Card

 

  • Stamps – Lawn Fawn: “You are Sublime,” and “Push Here” sets
  • Dies – Lawn Fawn: “You are Sublime,” “Lift the Flap Circles,” and “Porthole Frames”
  • Copic markers
  • Embossing powder – Ranger -Silver Pearl
  • Cardstock – BoBunny and Paper Accents

This card was very fun to make. I die-cut the round flap, making a window in the top piece of grey cardstock. I colored my cast of characters with Copic markers and created the scene with the sea creatures in a layer underneath on light blue cardstock and adhered it behind the opening in the grey cardstock. I added the porthole frame around the circle flap and stamped “open” on the flap tab. The tab can then be tucked into the porthole frame. I colored the submarine image with metallic gel pens and adhered it to the outside of the flap. I then stamped and heat embossed the sentiment, adhering it to the bottom of the front panel. I then adhered the grey cardstock to the polka-dot, top fold card base. As always, Lawn Fawn has produced some great stamps and dies to create scenes with. I’m only getting started! Thanks for visiting.

Raccoon Surprises

  • Stamps – Newton’s Nook “Raccoon Rascals”
  • Embossing folder- Darice “Birch Tree”
  • Die – Just Rite Custom Dies “Vintage Labels Two”
  • Button – Prima Wood Buttons
  • Patterned paper – Ella & Viv Paper Company “Oxidation”
  • Core’dinations cardstock
  • Bazzill cardstock
  • Copic markers

I am behind in posting here. I made this card some time ago. I created the background by using an embossing folder and then sanding the paper to make the embossed tree trunk images stand out. I colored the stamped raccoons with Copic markers. I stamped the sentiment, that came from the same stamp set as the raccoons, and die-cut it. I’ve had the button in my stash for years, and I thought it fit this card very well. It was really fun putting this card together. Thanks for visiting.

I love mixing and matching elements from different Lawn Fawn sets! I love the new musical critter set, and it was fun to place them on the big stump from the “Forest Feast” set in my stash.

I made this card for my husband, and we are enjoying the company of our one son who just returned home for the summer from his first year of college. Thanks for visiting today!

Authentique Bird Mixed Media Tag

  • Patterned papers – Authentique “Refreshed Collection: Refreshed Four” and “Refreshed Collection: Refreshed Six”
  • Die – My Favorite Things “Stitched Tags”
  • Tea Bag
  • Stencil – Dina Wakley Media “Plastic Canvas”

  • Scribble Stick – Dina Wakley Media “Ruby”
  • Washi tape – Dina Wakley Media

I created this mixed media tag for a class I taught. I really enjoyed putting it together with a variety of materials and knowing that combining these materials would be something new for some of the students. I began with a die-cut tag from raindrop patterned paper. Layers include some stenciled acrylic paint, washi tape, and tea bag paper beneath the fussy-cut bird from Autentique paper. Thanks for visiting.

Happy Birthday with Maxx

  • Stamps – Newton’s Nook, “Newton’s Birthday Balloons”
  • Dies – Newton’s Nook, “Newton’s Birthday Balloons”
  • Patterned papers – Doodlebug Designs, Inc. “Kite Strings” and “Evening Garden”
  • Cardstock – Bazzill
  • Copic markers

I colored this kitty (stamp and dies from Newton’s Nook) so that it looked like our cat Maxx. He has mostly white fur on his paws, but there are a couple of black spots mixed in on the bottom of his back feet. He also has what looks like a skunk stripe running down his belly, but I digress! This was a very clean and simple card, using some of my stash of patterned paper. Love this cat stamp and matching dies. The cloud dies also came with the set. Thanks for stopping by.
