Jump For Joy

Hello! Where I live, autumn has not arrived yet – we had 28 degrees Celcius today and I am wearing shorts… But it did not stop me from making this card:

As with the previous card I have made, “So Thankful”, I die-cut the Leafy Tree Backdrop: Landscape by Lawn Fawn from brown cardstock. I then took some images from the stamp set Jump For Joy by Lawn Fawn and coloured them with my Copic markers:
– fox: R24, E25, E50
– hedgehog: E25, E27, E53
– owl: E25, E13, E53
– leaves: YG67, Y35, YR15

I die-cut the images with their coordinating dies in my Cuttlebug, a die-cutting machine.

For the background panel, I took Distress Inks in the colours Stormy Sky, Spiced Marmelade, and Squeezed Lemonade and created an autumn sky (similar to the one in the “Carved Out Time” card that I made earlier).

The sentiment is from the same stamp set as the other images and was inked in Versafine Onyx Black ink, a crisp black ink.

I hope you enjoy this card as much as I had fun making it :-)! Thank you for stopping by!
See you again soon!

So Thankful

As I have said before: I love autumn! And I love all its colours! The shaker card that I want to share with you today was inspired by pictures of New England in autumn:


First, I die-cut the Leafy Tree Backdrop: Landscape by Lawn Fawn from brown cardstock. I then took some images from the Happy Village stamp set (also by Lawn Fawn) and stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto white cardstock. The Copic markers I used are:
– church: W6, E25
– green trees: YG17, YG67, E25
– yellow trees: Y35, Y38, E25

The images are die-cut with their coordinating dies in my Cuttlebug, a die-cutting machine.

I then cut a piece of acetate sheet to measure 4.25 by 5.5. inches (the same size as the Leafy Tree Backdrop) and adhered all the images and the Leafy Tree Backdrop onto the acetate sheet. The hill was made with one of Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Hillside Borders.

The background was created with the Mini Cloud Edges Stencil by My Favorite Things and the Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.

The sentiment is from the stamp set Jump For Joy by Lawn Fawn and was inked in Walnut ink (also by Lawn Fawn).

I adhered foam tape on the edges of the background panel, so that it is covered by the Leafy Tree Backdrop and filled it with golden-, orange- and brown-coloured sequins. I put the acetate sheet with the images on top. And the shaker card is done.

I am now daydreaming of New England (sigh). I hope you enjoy this card. I certainly had fun colouring and assembling it :-).
Thank you for stopping by! See you again soon!

Another Novel Birthday

Hello and welcome back! I have another book-themed birthday card that I was not able to share earlier because I was afraid that the recipient would see it before she actually receives it. I gave it to her yesterday, so I am now ready to post it :-).

For this card, I used the Bookworm stamp set from the Pure Innocence-series by My Favorite Things and the Book Worm stamp set by Mama Elephant and combined it with Copic-colouring, heat embossing, and Distress inking.

I stamped the little girl in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, a Copic-friendly ink, and coloured her with the following Copic markers:
– skin: E00, E93, V12
– hair: Y21, E31, E25
– books and clothes: YG23, V15, V17, B97, E50
I, then, die-cut her with the coordinating die in my Cuttlebug, a die-cutting machine.

For the background, I die-cut the (I believe second largest) Stitched Rectangle Stackables by Lawn Fawn and used the stack of books from the stamp set Book Worm by Mama Elephant. I inked the image in Versamark ink, a clear sticky ink. With some masking, I made it look like there were several stacks of books in varying heights. I poured white embossing powder over the ink and heat embossed it with my heat tool.

Once it had cooled down a little bit, I used my ink blending tool and the Distress Ink in colour Shaded Lilac to add some colour to the background.

The sentiment is from the stamp set Our Story by My Favorite Things. I inked it in Freshly Cut Grass by Lawn Fawn on a piece of white cardstock and used one of the Everyday Sentiment Banners (also from Lawn Fawn) to cut it out.

I adhered the sentiment and the little girl onto the background panel and the background panel onto a European standard-sized cardbase. I had to trim off a little bit from the bottom to centre the background panel on the cardbase.

The background did not go quite as well as I had initially thought but I am still very pleased with it. I really love the colour palette on this card!

I hope you like this card too!
