Carved Out Time {Lawn Fawnatics}

I love autumn, I love the beautiful colours and I was, therefore, very excited to see that the current Lawn Fawnatics challenge is an autumn-themed challenge. I played around with some Distress Inks in autumn colours and decided to enter the challenge with this card:

For this card, I started with the background: I took a piece of Tim Holtz Watercolour Paper and covered it with clear water. I, then, took Distress Inks in the colours Stormy Sky, Spiced Marmelade, and Squeezed Lemonade.

While the background panel was drying, I prepared the images for my card. I picked the pumpkins from Lawn Fawn’s stamp sets Happy Harvest and Pick Of The Patch. I stamped them in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, a Copic-friendly ink, and coloured them with my Copic markers:

  • cart: BG13, BG49, C6, N4
  • orange-ish pumpkins: YR15, YR18, B24
  • yellowish pumpkins: Y15, Y35, BV04
  • both orange and yellowish pumpkins: Y35, YR18, B24
  • stem: G17

I die-cut all the images using their coordinating dies and my Cuttlebug, a die-cutting machine.

After the background panel had dried, I stamped the sentiment from the Pick Of The Patch stamp set in Walnut ink by Lawn Fawn. From teal-coloured cardstock (it looks more blueish on the pictures), I die-cut the word “hello” from Lawn Fawn’s Scripty Hello.

In order for the pumpinks to have a ground to stand on, I trimmed a piece of the brown paper from Lawn Fawn’s Perfectly Plaid Fall 6×6 patterned paper pack. Everything is adhered together with glue – except the pumpkin with the carved face. This one was mounted on foam tape to make it stand out.

I hope you enjoy this card!
Thank you for stopping by! See you again soon!

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!

Spring Hello

Hello! The card that I want to show you today features one of the very few stamp sets that I completely bought on impulse. Usually, I always think of at least three card ideas before I purchase a stamp set. However, this one was just too cute to leave behind: the Little Girl Agenda stamp set by Mama Elephant.

Because I had no real plan as to how to use this stamp set, I played around a little bit. I then decided to cut four squares with one of the smaller Stitched Square Stackables by Lawn Fawn. I stamped some images of the Little Girl Agenda stamp set onto the squares and coloured them with my Copic markers. The colours I used are:

  • YR18
  • YG17
  • BG49
  • Y15
  • E95 (face)
  • E25 and E29 (hair)
  • BG10 (sky)
  • YG03 (grass)

For the sentiment, I die-cut the word “Hello” with Lawn Fawn’s Scripty Hello-die from green cardstock by American Crafts (collection Spring). I die-cut another “Hello” from craft foam to give the sentiment some dimension.

I arranged the pieces onto my card and adhered them with regular liquid glue. As a finishing touch I added Glossy Accents to the balloons and the umbrella (unfortunately, this is hard to see in the photos…).

Here are some close-up photos:

I like this card – it is fun and cheerful and very suitable for spring! I hope you like it too! Thank you for stopping by! I’ll see you soon!
