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!

Hello from the Mountains

Hello! I have finally been on summer holiday :-). I spent some time in the countryside of Austria and visited the mountain range Hohe Tauern (High Tauern). Inspired by the hikes in the mountains I made these cards:

From watercolour paper (Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Cardstock) I die cut the Mountain Borders by Lawn Fawn. I coloured them using my Distress Inks as watercolours. The colours I used are: Tumbled Glass (sky), Pumice Stone (mountains in the back), Shabby Shutters, Crushed Olive, and Mowed Lawn. (For the “Hello” card, I mixed Pumice Stone with Crushed Olive.) The snowcaps are die-cut from plain white cardstock.
I took the tree images from the stamp sets Tobaggan Together and Mom + Me (both from Lawn Fawn) and stamped them with Lawn Fawn ink – the colours are Freshly Cut Grass, Jalapeno, and Noble Fir. From red cardstock (by American Crafts) I die-cut the sentiments using Lawn Fawn Quinn’s ABC and Scripty Hello.
I adhered everything together with Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue – only the sentiment “Danke” (German: thank you) was adhered with foam tape.

I liked the design so much that I made a couple more cards. I intend to use them for the InCoWriMo challenge, which I hope will take place again in February 2018…

I hope you like the cards, too. Thank you very much for stopping by!
