Lawn Fawn: Claire’s ABCs

Hello!

We meet again!

It’s another Lawn Fawn adventure here today. Today’s adventure involves Claire’s ABCs.

So meet today’s card.

I used Claire’s ABCs to create the sentiment. The line underneath is the tail from Flying By. I just love that element!

The butterfly, flower and leaves are from Flutter By. I didn’t do anything too fancy here. I just used a couple markers to add a little shading to the paper.

The paper is again from my old friend, the Bright Side collection from Lawn Fawn.

That’s it! Be back later.

Lawn Fawn: Flutter By

Hello again all!

It’s time for another few days of Lawn Fawn fun.

Today, the Fawny gang is playing it up with the new Flutter By set.

So meet today’s card.

(Insert dramatic effect: “Dummm…. dummmmmm.. dummmmmmmmmmmm….”)

All the stamping here (expect for the tail) was completed with Flutter By. The tail is from the Flying By set.

The patterned papers are from Lawn Fawn’s Bright Side collection.

For more Flutter By projects, check out the Lawn Fawn blog.

Be sure to comment over there, too. That’s because Kelly is giving away some stamps… again. She rocks like that. ;)

See you again soon.

Today’s card (4-16)

Hi everybody!

What’s up, card peeps? ;)

Meet today’s.

Clean. Not over-thought. Not over-fussed about. Just how I like ‘em.

In fact, see the little heart on the planes? I was totally inspired by Linda (aka: Ms. Genius). When I saw her card with her planes with heart on them, I knew I had to try that myself sometime. Such a cute touch. Thanks for inspiration, Linda.

Planes, heart and words are all stamps from Lawn “fawny fawny” Fawn.

See you again soon!

Here’s to making it not just a good day, but a dang good day!

Today’s card (4-15)

Hi all!
Meet today’s card.

I created this one with the April Greenhouse Society stamp set from Technique Tuesday.

The Greenhouse Society is a new monthly stamp club, featuring a new flower or botanical set every month.

I used just one part of the flower stem from this month’s set here. I stamped the whole stem twice on cardstock, fussy cut the same flower out, colored them in and then layered them together with foam tape. To give the layered flower a little more texture, I brushed on a layer of textured clear glaze.

The butterfly is from TT’s Take Flight set.

Check out the Technique Tuesday blog for some more projects made with this month’s set.

See you again soon!

Today’s cards (2-13)

Hi all!

Meet today’s cards.

Yep. cards. ;)

Here’s #1.

And here is #2.

Both were made with April’s The Card Kitchen kit from Jillibean Soup.

I was definitely influenced by the whole confetti trend that’s so hot in scrapbooking right now. It’s just so fun!

The confetti on the second card is tucked into a vellum envelope. I put the confetti inside it and then slapped down a bunch of staples right down the center so it would stay somewhat even when I stood the card up.

Easy peasy.  And definitely need to try that again someday! :)

See you again later!

GCD Studios: Making Circles with Glasses & Paint (4-12)

Hi all!

I’m over on the GCD Studios Blog again today so I thought I’d share my post here, too.

One of the things I loved doing when I paper craft is to mix my scrapbook supplies with items I can find in my home.

Today, I am going to show you a fun way to make circles with paper from GCD Studios’ Splendor collection , paint and a small glass!

You are going to need:

  • A small drinking glass (a,votive cup or some other object with a circle ring works well, too!)
  • Craft paint
  • Patterned paper from GCD Studios (of course!)
  • Scratch paper

Start by squirting some paint on an old tray (or plate) or scratch paper.

Set the rim of a glass in the paint. Twist the glass to make sure the rim is fully covered with paint.

You want it to look  like this.

Press the rim onto your patterned paper.

Be sure to press hard so you get a nice painted circle like this.

When finished, cut your circle out and use it as a design element on your next paper crafting project!

All four of the circles on this card were made with my painted circle technique.

Rather than cutting them with scissors, I was able to use a circle punch.

The circles here were also created with this technique.

To give the yellow and blue ones more visual interest, I set a wooden button in the middle of the circles. I then covered the top of each button with additional paper from the Splendor collection.

So fun!

See you again soon!
