Sweet Gifts

Hello! The stamp set Sweet Friends by Lawn Fawn seems to be very popular among cardmakers as this was sold out immediately after its release and I had to wait for quite some time for it to be re-stocked. Luckily, I was now able to purchase it and I am so happy to show you the first cards I made using this stamp set:

I stamped the ice cream / froyo image from the stamp set Sweet Friends by Lawn Fawn in Memento Tuxedo Black ink multiple times onto white cardstock. I coloured them with my Copic markers using the following colours:

  • Y32 and Y11
  • B41 and BG10
  • YG03 and G000
  • V12 and B60
  • E35 and E27
  • N2 and Colourless Blender (cup)

With the coordinating die, I die-cut the images. From Lawn Fawn’s patterned paper pack Gotta have Gingham, I cut out a panel to serve as the background for the card.

The sentiment is from the stamp set Gift Card Greetings by My Favorite Things.

Everything was adhered with regular glue, except the ice cream / froyo in the middle – that one is adhered with foam tape to make it stand out.

Here is the second card I made – same layout, but different sentiment:

The sentiment is also from Gift Card Greetings by My Favorite Things. The background is a piece of patterned paper from Lawn Fawn’s Perfectly Plaid Winter collection.

I had sooo much fun colouring these images and I can’t wait to make more cards with this sweet stamp set!

Thank you for visiting my blog! I hope to see you again soon!

You’re My Superhero

Hello! The past few weeks have been extremely stressful for me, so I am very happy that I finally found the time to make some cards again. Today’s card will feature the little girl superhero that I coloured for the “30 Day Colouring Challenge” by The Daily Marker.

I stamped the little girl from the My Favorite Things’ stamp set You’re Super in Memento Tuxedo Black, a Copic-friendly ink, on a piece of white cardstock. I coloured her with my Copic markers using the following colours:

  • skin: E95
  • hair: BG75, E27
  • cape: V06, C4
  • trousers: 100
  • belt: Y15, C4
  • boots: V06, BG72

I coloured her hair this way because that is the kind of hair I always wanted to have :-)

The city is also from the stamp set and was stamped with Archival Ink in colour Jet Black. I die-cut both images with their co-ordinating dies in my Cuttlebug, a die-cutting machine.

For the background, I used Distress Inks (colours: Black Soot, Seedless Preserves, Salty Ocean) and an ink blending tool to create the nightsky. Since Distress Inks react with water, I took advantage of this effect and created the stars by flicking some water onto the background.
I stamped the sentiment, which is also included in the stamp set, with Versamark ink. I put white embossing powder on it and heat embossed it with my heat tool.

For the ground, I took some pattern paper by Lawn Fawn (I believe this was from the 6×6 inches Let’s Polka in the Dark paper pack) and adhered the city and the girl superhero on it. The girl superhero was adhered with foam tape to make her stand out.

As you can see this was a fairly easy card to make. I really like how it turned out and I will make more of this… :-)

Thank you very much for stopping by! Hope to see you soon!

You’re Plane Awesome

Hello! I have never used embossing folders on my cards before because, frankly, I did not particularly like them. However, I found some beautiful embossing folders at a craft fair that I attended back in autumn and wanted to give them a try. In today’s card I will use one of these as my background:

For this card, I cut a 6×6 inch pattern paper by Lawn Fawn (paper pack Pint-Sized Patterns) to measure 10,5cm by 14,8cm (European standard size card front). I then took a piece of (thinner) white cardstock, insert it into the embossing folder World Map by Carta Bella Paper and ran it through my die-cutting machine.

The focal image is one of the planes from Lawn Fawn’s stamp set Plane and Simple. I coloured the plane with the ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens by Kuretake, which I received as a gift for Christmas :-). This was the first time I tried them, so the colouring is not perfect – clearly, I need to practice…

For the sentiment, I die-cut banners with Lawn Fawn’s Everyday Sentiment Banners from white cardstock and the rest of the pattern paper that I used for the background. The sentiment, which is from the same stamp set as the plane, was stamped with Lawn Fawn ink in the colour Chili Pepper (on white cardstock) and in Versamark ink (on the pattern paper). I added white embossing powder onto the Versamark ink, shook off the excess powder and heat embossed the stamped word.

Everything was adhered together with glue; the plane was mounted with foam tape to make it stand out.

I really like how the embossed background compliments the focal image. I am particularly impressed how beautiful the raised pattern looks on the paper. Here are some closeup photos to show you:

This was a quick and easy card to make. I hope you like it!
