These cherry blossoms were perfect for a friend’s birthday card. I cut the flowers and leaves from some very old Basic Grey paper pads that I’ve had in my stash for years (I found dates of 2006 and 2008!). They’re kind of antique papers! Anyway, I save them for special projects because they were so lovely. I die cut foam and adhered the heat embossed sentiment onto the foam layer for some really nice dimension.
I layered the blossom die cuts in a variety of colors and patterns on top of the small cut-out panel. I used the “waste” for centers of the blossoms and added a gem on top to finish out the flowers. I then scattered sequins around the rest of the card to finish it up. Thanks for visiting.

I am still having a good time making Valentines, and again I’m featuring a cute critter. Gotta do it! Critters are just meant to be on Valentines! This is a simple card with just a few stamped images and a few dies. I was guided as I designed it by the sketch in the current challenge on the My Favorite Things website (sketch is shown below). Thanks for visiting today.
I know it has been way too long since I’ve posted here. I spent December carving stamps for the #carvedecember challenge on Instagram. I’ll be creating a blog post about my hand-carved stamps soon. Today I’m back to share some cardmaking.
Stamps and dies by Lawn Fawn:
Scent with Love stamps and die sets
Scent with Love Add-on stamps and die sets
Small Mini Slimline Stackables die set
Simple Puffy Cloud Frames die set
Grassy Hillside Borders die set
This card was so much fun to create! As soon as I saw the Small Mini Slimline Stackables die set, I saw so many possibilities! So for this card, I cut the smallest in the set in three colors and covered the card base for a fun background. The colors I chose were not necessarily traditional for a Valentine. From there I created a scene with the cute skunks in the Scent with Love and Scent with Love Add-on sets with clouds and grass from other die sets in my stash. There’s very little better than cute critter stamps, and Lawn Fawn always comes through for me!
I colored all of the stamped and die-cut elements with Copic markers. I blended the die-cut grass with Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink.
