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!

Starry Thank You

I have not been feeling well the past couple of days and so I was unable to submit the rest of the homework for the Online Card Class “Sparkle & Shine” – but that is okay, I’ll just post it here :-). For Day 5: Paste and Mousse, I made this card:

On a piece of white cardstock, I applied Nuvo Embellishment Mousse (in colour Pacific Teal) through a star stencil with a palette-knife. It would probably have sufficed, if I let it dry for 30 minutes or so but I wanted to be on the safe side and let it dry for a couple of hours.

In the meantime, I prepared the front panel by cutting one of the larger stars from Lawn Fawn’s Puffy Star Stackables with my die-cutting machine. On a stripe of teal cardstock, I stamped the sentiment “I thank my lucky stars for you” from the stamp set Lucky Stars in Versamark ink, poured white embossing powder on it and heat embossed it. I glued the teal stripe onto the front panel just below the die-cut star.

I adhered foam tape on the back of the front panel and glued it onto the cardstock with the teal stars. As a last step I wrapped around blue twine around the front of the card.

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