Happy Mother’s Day

It took me a long time to decide on a design for a Mother’s Day card. While working on the current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge (stay tuned for this post :-), I was inspired by a card made by Kate, one of Lawn Fawn’s Design Team Members. She inspired me to use pink plaid paper and fairies. Unfortunately, I do not have any fairy stamp sets, so I went with flowers – which is always good for Mother’s Day, don’t you think?

From the largest of the Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Rectangles-dies, I die-cut a panel out of white cardstock. Using the second biggest rectangle, I die-cut another panel from pink plaid paper from Lawn Fawn’s Perfectly Plaid Spring paper collection. From this paper, I die-cut one of the Circle Stackables-dies to make an opening for the sentiment. I glued the white panel and the plaid panel together using tape runner.

The sentiment is from the Lawn Fawn stamp set Happy Happy Happy. I inked it in Wild Rose ink (by Lawn Fawn) and stamped it inside the circle.

On white cardstock, I stamped some of the flowers from the stamp set Fab Flowers (by Lawn Fawn). For these images, I used the following ink pads by Lawn Fawn:

  • Mermaid and Peacock (roses)
  • Grape Soda and Sugarplum (flowers)
  • Jalapeno and Freshly Cut Grass (leaves)
  • Sugarplum and Walnut (butterfly)

I adhered everything together using liquid glue. Only the rose in the middle and the butterfly were added with foam tape to make them stand out. The panel was then adhered onto a US standard sized cardbase (4.25 x 5.5 inch).

As a finishing touch, I added glitter to the butterfly with the Wink of Stellar brush pen and added some dots with Nuvo Crystal Drops by Tonic Studios (colour: Ivory Seashell).

I am wishing a Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers out there! Have a happy day!


Summery Hello

Happy Friday! I have a quick and easy card for you today. I was inspired by the warm and summery weather we’ve been having:

I stamped the pineapple image from the Aloha stamp set by Lawn Fawn multiple times in Memento Tuxedo Black onto white cardstock. In every pineapple I stamped the smiley face and the sunglasses included in the set. I coloured the pineapples with my Copic markers. The colours I used are Y15 and RV13 (yes, really) as well as Y03 and YG06.
The images were then cut out with their coordinating dies in my Cuttlebug, a die-cutting machine.

The background is a 4.25 x 5.5 inch panel of watercolour cardstock. I die-cut this panel using the largest Stitched Rectangle-die from Lawn Fawn. I took my Mini Distress Ink Pads, which can be used as watercolours, and made a colourful background using (if I remember correctly) Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmelade, Mustard Seed, and Peacock Feathers.

The sentiment is Lawn Fawn’s Scripty Hello-die that I die-cut multiple times from white cardstock. I glued them on top of each other, so the sentiment has some dimension.

The card was assembled using regular liquid glue; the pineapples are adhered with foam tape.

I hope this card was able to brighten your day! Have a nice weekend!
See you soon!

Donut Worry

Hello! I made other cards using the Sweet Friends stamp set by Lawn Fawn (the first ones can be found here). In addition to this, I used the Donut Worry stamp set also by Lawn Fawn.

I stamped the donut (doughnut) image from Sweet Friends and Donut Worry in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto white cardstock. I used my Copic markers to colour the images. I used the following colours: E34 – E27 – Y21 – B41 – YG03 – V12

I die-cut the images with their coordinating dies. For the backgrounds of the cards, I chose patterned papers by Lawn Fawn, collections Let’s Polka in the Meadow and Let’s Polka Mon Amie.

From white cardstock, I die-cut rectangles using the Stitched Rectangles Stackables by Lawn Fawn. I wanted the donuts (doughnuts) to look like they were in donut (doughnut) boxes – just like Yainea did in her video. Unfortunately, I do not have the supplies (i.e. the acetate sheet) to make these boxes, so a white rectangle must do :-)

The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn’s Donut Worry set and was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

I hope you enjoy these cards!
Thank you for stopping by!
