Lawn Fawnatics: Make a Wish

Hello! I have decided to enter a second card in the current Lawn Fawnatics challenge #28 (according to the rules, participants are allowed up to four entries per challenge). My first entry for challenge #28 was quite dark (colourwise), so I wanted to make another card using happy and bright colours:

Using the largest of the Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Rectangles-dies, I die-cut a panel out of the teal / turquoise paper from the Knock On Wood paper collection. With the second biggest rectangle, I die-cut another panel from regular white cardstock. Finally, I die-cut one of the Puffy Star Stackables-dies from the Really Rainbow paper collection.

On white cardstock, I stamped the unicorn from the set Critters Ever After in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured it with my Copic Markers. I, then, die-cut the unicorn with its coordinating die.

I adhered the panels together using liquid glue. The unicorn was added with foam tape to make it stand out. The cardbase is a US standard sized cardbase, measuring 4.25 x 5.5 inches.

The sentiment is from the same stamp set as the unicorn and was also stamped in Tuxedo Black ink.

As a finishing touch, I added some glitter with my Wink of Stella glitter brush pen to the unicorn and adhered some sequins to the card.

I hope you like this card. Thank you for stopping by!


Let’s Eat Cake

Hello! Today, I have a very quick card to show you featuring the My Favorite Things’ Pure Innocence girl:

This Happy Cake Day stamp set is my first stamp set of the Pure Innocence line. And I thought that it goes very well with the Brushstroke Birthday stamp set, also by My Favorite Things.

I stamped the girl in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto a piece of Copic-friendly paper in order to colour the image with my Copic markers. The colours I used are:

  • hair: YR15, YR18, E25, and YG17 (headband)
  • skin: E00, E93, V12
  • dress: YG03, YG17
  • cake: E29
  • shoes: YG97

I cut the image with my scissors because I do not have the coordinating dies.

The background is the light blue gingham paper from Lawn Fawn’s collection Gotta Have Gingham. The sentiment is from the Brushstroke Birthday stamp set by My Favorite Things. I believe this is an older set as I was not able to find it for purchase anywhere… It was stamped in Walnut ink by Lawn Fawn.

Because there was so much empty space on the card, I thought it would be a good idea to use some Nuvo Crystal Drops by Tonic Studios. This is the first time I have used Nuvo Drops. The colours I have are Emerald City and Ivory Seashell.

I hope you like the card!

Thank you for stopping by! See you soon!

Welcome Baby!

Hello! Today I want to show you a baby card that I made recently. A childhood friend and his wife had a baby boy in early February. And this is the card I am sending them:

For this card, I used the stamp set Little Onesie by Clearly Besotted . I stamped the different onesies and the little stamps from the set onto a piece of watercolour paper to make it look like patterned paper.

I also stamped one onesie separately on a light blue piece of paper and die-cut it with the coordinating die. I stamped the little star from the set onto this onesie. This will be my focal image.

I, then, coloured all the images with my ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens using only shades of blue and some water.

I trimmed the “patterned paper” down to a square; it measures 4×4 inches.

From blue cardstock (by American Cardstock), I die-cut some letters (Lawn Fawn’s Quinn’s ABCs) to customise the card. And as you can guess from the picture, the baby boy’s name is Max. :-)

I adhered the focal image and the blue letters with foam tape. As a finishing touch I added some shimmer with my Wink of Stella pen onto the letters.

I hope the happy parents will enjoy the card as much as I enjoyed making it.

Thank you for stopping by! See you soon!
