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!

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!
