It’s hard to believe it but I’m back with a couple more cards. Today’s cards include a bunch of farm animals from Lawn Fawn’s Hay There stamp set.
So, with that, meet Card No. 1.
I picked up the stamp set not long after it came out, but only recently added the dies to my crafty arsenal. This kinda pushed me to pull out the stamp set and play some more with it.
All the animals (and barn) are form the set. I created the little scenic background by stenciling a cloud background on cardstock and then adding a strip of green cardstock at the bottom. It would have been easy to just create a card with that as the background, but I decided to get all fancy-like and die-cut the scalloped circle from it. It provided a cute little background for the card, and it left me a leftover piece you’ll see me use in a minute.
So meet Card No. 2.
Remember how that leftover background piece from the first card? Yeppers. You’ll see it right here. I covered up some of the circle by adhering the animals onto it.
I created the sentiment by pairing together some stamped words from the Hay There set with a “friend” die-cut word from Paper Smooches. (Speaking of which, it’s a great time to grab some Paper Smooches stamps and dies… and stencils… as they are retiring.)
Anyway, I think both cards turned out kinda fun. And it was cool to use the background to make 2 cards. Totally two-for-one!
I hope you enjoyed checking out these cards. I’ll be back again later with a few more cards to share with you. Thank you, as always, for stopping by!
Scenes are my jam, and creating a new one felt like a good reason to pull out some of my Lawn Fawn products. So, with that, meet today’s card.
I went way back for this one, pulling out my much loved Critters in the Forest stamp set to stamp the animals and tree. Gosh, how long have I had this stamp set? Since it came out. Hehe! So many stamps have come and gone from my stash since that time, but this one has stuck around. It was nice to ink it up again and play with it.
Happy weekend’ing to you! I’m back with another card to share with you.
Today’s little typewriter card was inspired by Jennifer and Kristina’s Woven Windows lesson during Spring Card Camp 2 on Online Card Classes. I keep a little box of scraps by my desk and was like, “Hey, man. I’m going to give that a try.”
So I created the little window on this card with paper strips from that little box. Once I completed the window, I mounted vellum behind it.
I really liked the window and could have just gone with it on the card alone. But I’d stamped the typewriter and mouse (from Lawn Fawn’s Just My Type set) a couple days ago and really, really, really wanted to use them on a card… and I did. 😉 (By the way, the second sentiment on the card is from a Cathy Zielske Simon Says Stamp! set.)
To make the window pop, I did anchor the panel on a lot (and I mean a lot) of Crafty Foam Tape. The tape gives it some nice pop, but not too much. This card can still be mailed and all.
Anyway, I think this card turned out pretty fun. Hopefully, the friend who gets it, enjoys it!
Thanks, as always, for stopping by! I appreciate your kind words! See you again soon!
So many great ideas have been shared so far. Today’s card is just an idea I got in my head and decided to run with it. So let’s get to it. Meet today’s card.
Flying robots with coffee cups! It could happen… wink, wink! 🙂 I found myself giggling as I made this card. I initially planned to make a cute little love scene with a cup of coffee and the two robots and then my mind kinda just took off. (Don’t ask. Just don’t ask.) And my scene evolved into flying robots.
The sentiment, which is from an old My Favorite Things set, just seemed fitting. The swirly doohickey majicky is from MFT Stamps, to, as is the coffee cup.
The robots and hearts are from Lawn Fawn’s Charge Me Up set. Not sure why but robots stamps almost always end up in my crafty arsenal. I always enjoy making cards with them.
I created the background with Lawn Fawn’s Cloudy stencil. Oh and I wanted to mention this. I use a lot of small embellishments. Liquid glue is pretty trendy these days for adhering them, but if you aren’t a liquid glue fan when it comes to embellishment, I highly recommend checking out the Micro Adhesive Dots from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. They are really small and work well for sequins.
Alrighty! That’s it! Be sure to check out the hop’s link up. So many great projects! See you again soon! 🙂
It’s been a hot minute since I’ve been here with a card, but I’m back! I’ve got a card to share with you today.
I created this card this last weekend as the result of a virtual crop with some of my card making friends. Kelly tossed out a challenge to make a card with pink. I decided to give it a go as I don’t often make pink cards and am pretty challenged by the color! It proved to be a good challenge as I spent a lot of time fussing about this one. (Hehe!)
The cups and stamped words are from a couple older stamp sets from My Favorite Things. The large die-cut word was cut with an older die from Lawn Fawn. I cut it four times and the stacked the words up to make one. Then I used my Copic markers to add the gray tones to it.
The patterned papers are just scraps from my box of scraps that I pulled together. I told myself not to worry if they were 100 percent perfect together. I’d be OK, no matter what. (Wink!)
Anyway, that’s what I have got! I’ll be back again this weekend with another card or two to share with you! Thank you, as always, for stopping by. It’s always a treat when you do.
Got a couple cards to share with you today! Made these two critter cards last week and just getting around to sharing them.
Is the unicorn not the cutest ever? My friend, Nina, sent the unicorn die over to play with for the fun of it. It’s from Waffle Flower Crafts, and I truly imagine making a ton of cards with it. It. Just. Plain. Makes. Me. Happy.
I used it somewhat the same and somewhat different. I added a heart (diecut with dies from Lawn Fawn) to each unicorn, plus added color with markers. (I also added hearts in the background.) For one of the unicorns, I added sparkle with glitter glue (that’s the white one). For the other unicorn, I added some sparkle with a Wink of Stella pen. It’s subtle but so, so pretty.
The sentiment on both cards is from the Encouraging Greetings set from Pretty Pink Posh. It’s quickly become one of my favorites to use for creating cards for friends. It’s pretty much on my desk all the time… wink!
Alrighty! That is all I have for you. Be back later, gators.
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.
This card was quick to put together… and a lot of fun too!
To make the “rainbow”, I cut two sunray backgrounds from white cardstock with the Lawn Fawn die. I set one on my craft table and set the other (temporarily) on my card. Then I used that one as a guide to add the rainbow rays to the card with my colored pencils.
Once I had the rainbow completed, I adhere the second sun panel to the card. (I kept that first panel so I could make more cards like this one later.)
Then I stamped a sentiment from the Encouraging Greetings stamp set from Pretty Pink Posh on a strip of cardstock. I added a little bit of thread underneath it and then added it to my card.
This card is fine as it is, but you could always kick it up a notch if you wanted to. Just add sequins or crystal drops to the “rainbow” rays. Gems would be cool too.
