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!

Lawn Fawnatics: Wish Upon A Star

It’s been soooo long but I have finally found the time again: I am participating in the Lawn Fawnatics Challenges again. Whoohoo! (My last entry in the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge was in August 2017 with this colourful card). Challenge #28 is a card sketch challenge and here is the card I am entering:

From the largest of the Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Rectangles-dies, I die-cut a panel out of black cardstock. Using the second biggest rectangle, I die-cut another panel from dark blue paper of Lawn Fawn’s Pint-Sized Patterns paper collection. From the same paper collection, I die-cut one of the Puffy Star Stackables-dies.

On white cardstock, I stamped the little bunny and the little fox from the Upon A Star stamp set by Lawn Fawn and coloured them with my Copic markers. I only did some simple colouring and no blending as the images are quite small. The colours I used are: W02 for the bunny and YR18 for the fox.

The sentiment, which is from the same stamp set, was stamped in Versamark ink onto black cardstock. I then poured white embossing powder over it and heat-set it with my heat gun.

On the star that I die-cut earlier, I stamped the heart constellation, which is also from the Upon A Star stamp set, in Versamark ink to heat emboss it like the sentiment.

I adhered everything together using liquid glue. Only the critters 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).

I had a lot of fun making this card! I hope you like it, too!
Thank you for stopping by! See you soon!

Colourful Birthday

If writers can have writer’s block, can crafters have crafter’s block? For the past weeks I have been struggling to get inspired and motivated to create new cards. I do not know if the heat wave is melting away my brain (this is the third or fourth heat wave this year) or if I am in need of a holiday. Admittedly, I had to force myself to sit at my desk and craft – I know this is not ideal, but I think it worked out well. I made this colourful birthday card:

I used my Distress Inks as watercolours and created a rainbow background with my paintbrush and acrylic block. The colours are Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmelade, Mustard Seed and Peacock Feathers. I chose these particular colours because I had found this colour combination on Pinterest a while ago – and I really liked it. With the largest die from Lawn Fawn’s Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables set, I die-cut the rainbow background to measure 4.25 x 5.5 inches.

From white cardstock, I die-cut the Scripty Happy-die three times and adhered them on top of each other to give the word some dimension. I, then, took black cardstock and the smallest of the Everyday Sentiment Banners dies; on this die-cut, I stamped the “birthday”-sentiment from Let’s Bokeh with Lawn Fawn’s Yeti Ink. To finish, I adhered everything onto the rainbow background.

At first I was not sure if I would participate in the current Lawn Fawnatics challenge. Eventually, I decided to enter this card – the colours fit the criteria and maybe I can inspire others to create cool cards.

I know that this colourful birthday card is a very simple card but since I am trying to find my “spark” again, I am glad that I was able to make something nice… I thank you very much for stopping by! I hope that I will be back soon with more cards.

Supplies I used:

  • Ranger Distress Inks: Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmelade, Mustard Seed, Peacock Feathers
  • Lawn Fawn die sets: Scripty Happy, Everyday Sentiment Banners, Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables
  • Lawn Fawn stamp sets: Let’s Bokeh
