I’m back with a Christmas card to share with you today. Today’s card by was inspired by Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 65: Fun with Dies! Seemed like a good reason to dig into my pile of dies and plays… and so I did. 🙂
Meet today’s card and my take on the challenge.
The wreath (cut with the Mini Wreath dies) was so much fun to put together. Super tiny but fun to add some extra detail to with Glossy Accents. You’ll see I added a little gloss to the berries and the bow.
I also added a detail to the hearts (cut with the Hearts dies) with Glossy Accents as well.
I also “hung” the wreath with a small piece of twine.
To make the Fa La La La La word (cut with the Fa La La La La Border) stand out, I cut it three times from kraft cardstock and stacked it up and added a stamped phrase beneath it. The words? They were stamped with a phrase from the Simply Winter Sentiments set.
In full disclosure, I originally planned to hang the wreath from the Fa La La La La words. I tried many ways but I was not digging the look. I haven’t quite abandoned the idea thought and might try again later in the holiday card making season. Watch for that… wink!
Alright! That’s it for now. I’ll be back later, gators. Thanks for swinging by. And thanks, Fawny friends, for the challenge.

I’m back… back again… with a couple more projects created with products from the October release from Technique Tuesday.
Today’s projects feature the new Bow on the Border die, which like all the new goods will be available here on the 1st.
This new die has a lot of awesomeness about it. It works with a standard A2 card, plus you can use it to make Christmas cards like this.
Here I just cut a border into a card with it. Then I cut it out again from a piece of red cardstock and used the inner pieces on my card.
I also paired the border with a sentiment from the previously released Classic Christmas Sentiments stamp set.
You can also use this die easily to make cards for other occasions, like birthdays!
So here, I just cut the border into my card, added some patterned paper strips behind it and added a birthday sentiment (from the Lovely Lavender set).
Yep. I also didn’t bother adding the insides of the bow back to the card. Here’s why: I didn’t feel like it. (Wink!) Plus I actually thought the strips of patterned paper looked quite lovely peeking out from the inside of the card.
Alright. That’s it for me. Be sure to hit the Technique Tuesday blog for links to all the other design team members sharing projects today. They are going to KNOCK your socks off. Trust me.
Be back again tomorrow.
It’s Release Day at Technique Tuesday, and I’ve got a new card created with new stuff to share with you. (<—-Say that new thing ten times fast.)
Meet today’s card.
Created this bad boy with a couple new products from Technique Tuesday, the Cool Tools dies and the What a Guy stamp set. (You’ll see them and all the other new goods here.)
I cut the tools from white cardstock and then used my markers to add color to them. And then I assembled them together for the card.
I created my background for the card with various scraps of patterned paper from my shoebox of scraps.
The sentiment? It hails from the What a Guy stamp set. I think any old sentiment that is guy-worthy would work with this card. (Or maybe a girl-sentiment would work for a tool loving DIY girl!)
Alright! That’s what I have. Be sure to check out the Technique Tuesday blog for links to all the other Design Team members sharing projects created with the new goods today. So much good stuff!
Back again with another stamped card.
Ashley and I decided to challenge each other again. This time, we are diving into our stashes of Lawn Fawn stamps and dies to make some cards. Let’s be honest: The two of us have enough Lawn Fawn products to sink a small island. (Wink! OK. Maybe not but maybe…) But, hey it sounded like a good idea!
So meet today’s card and my first take on the new challenge.
This was such a fun card to work on, as I’ve had the stamps (So Jelly stamp set and Fintastic Friends stamp set) in my stash awhile but they haven’t seen a lot of action.
First, let me tell you a little bit about my design process. I only knew I was going to make some Lawn Fawn cards this week so I pulled out a bunch of stamp sets and dies and just stamped and cut a bunch of images. Then I colored them and pulled some images out of the mix to make these card.
I felt like the fish and jellyfish needed some kind of water to swim in so I cut a circle from cardstock and sponged some Distress Oxide ink on it. Then I spritzed on a little water. Once it was dry, I added the stamped images and stamped a couple air bubbles. I also went kinda crazzzzzy and added the blue circle border with Nuvo Crystal Drops and some clear circle dots in the middle with Ranger’s Glossy Accents. Both are staples in my card making stash.
The patterned papers on my card came from my shoebox of scraps. I forced myself to pick some papers from that box that just worked with the stamping rather than cutting into a couple new pieces of paper.
For the sentiment, I just stamped some words from the So Jelly set on a strip of white cardstock. And then I added a few more blue dots to it… just to go with the ones on the circle.
Alright! That’s all I have for you.
Be sure to hit Ashley’s blog to see her first take on the challenge. Be back again later.
