SENDING SMILES (2)

For this card I used the Monster Love stamp set from My Favorite Things, and the Grid Window die from Mama Elephant.


I die cut a piece of white cardstock with the Grid Window die. I cut out some of the windows, to create two bigger squares and two rectangles.

I stamped all the monsters with Lawn Fawn Ink. Here are the inks I used:
Blue monster: Fish Tank Ink
Green monster: Freshly Cut Grass Ink
Red monster: Lobster Ink
Yellow monster: Sunflower Ink
Purple monster: Sugarplum Ink


I added all the eyes, mouths and antennas to the monsters and fussy cut them.


For the background, I blended some Wild Honey Distress Ink onto watercolor paper. I added a little to the bottom and the top, leaving a white space in the middle.


I assembled the card, stamped the sentiment and added the panel onto Black Licorice cardbase.

SOME BUNNY LOVES YOU TO PIECES (1)

For this love card, I used the Some Bunny stamp set from Simon Says Stamp, and some Lawn Fawn dies.


I started by stamping and coloring the images. I used Copic Markers for it. Here are the colors I used:
Bunny: C0 – C2 – C3/ RV10 – R83
Chick: Y00 – Y02/ RV10 – R83/ YR61 – YR02


I fussy cut the images and set them aside to focus on my scene. For the background I blended Peacock Feathers Distress Ink onto watercolor paper. I die cut a cloud border, with the Puffy Cloud Borders. And I also die cut a grass border and butterflies, with the Meadow Borders. For the grass I used Twisted Citron Distress Ink and for the butterflies I used Picked Raspberry and Mustard Seed Distress Ink.


I assembled the card, stamped the sentiment and dotted lines with Hippo Ink and added the panel onto a piece of Narwhal cardstock.

As a finishing touch, I added glitter to the butterflies with the Clear Sparkle Pen from Spectrum Noir. I also added some white dots to the bunnie’s belly and the chick’s cheeks.


I had a completely different plan for this set, but I love this more!!!

YOU'RE THE SPRINKLES ON MY CUPCAKE (1)

There is a new challenge over at the Lawn Fawnatics blog. For challenge # 21, the theme is “Mood Board”. You can let yourself be inspired by the images, themes or colors you see on the mood board presented. I designed this Sweet Friends card for the challenge.


I started on the background. I took a piece of watercolor paper and wetted a circular shape onto the paper. I added some Picked Raspberry Distress Ink onto it. I dabbed the water off, to make the pink a little softer. When it dried, I added some pink splatter to the panel.

I stamped the cupcake twice and added a different face on each of them. I colored the images with Copic Markers. Here are the colors I used:
Hearts: R14 – R17


I stamped sprinkles onto the tops of the cupcakes, in Hippo Ink and Bubblegum Ink. I then die cut the cupcakes with my Cuttlebug.

I stamped the sentiment in Hippo Ink and Bubblegum Ink and assembled the card. I adhered the panel onto a Ballet Slippers cardbase. I rounded off the top right corner.

WITH LOVE (3)

I decided to create a sympathy card with the In Bloom stamp set from My Favorite Things.


I started by choosing all the Lawn Fawn Ink colors I wanted to use. I'm only going to use the greenery stamps, no flowers (but the flower buds). I used a rectangle panel to stamp on and made a little mark onto the middle of the card. This won't be visible in the end.

I used my MISTI for the stamping. When I positioned a stamp, I stamped this image four times. Each time I rotated the paper, so the stamp will stay in its position.

All the ink colors I used: Celery Stick Ink, Freshly Cut Grass Ink, Noble Fir Ink, Wild Rose Ink, Doe Ink, Minty Fresh Ink.


I die cut a circle with the Small Stitched Circle Stackables and stamped the sentiment onto it with Wild Rose Ink and Hippo Ink. The sentiment is from Fab Flowers.


I adhered the circle to the panel with foam tape. I added the panel onto a Guava cardbase.
It's so easy to create beautiful cards with this floral stamp set. Loving it!

WISHING YOU A BEAUTIFUL DAY (3)

For this birthday card, I used the Bicycle Built For You stamp set from Lawn Fawn. I was inspired by a crafter on Instagram: Sharna Waksmulski . Check out her account, she is really talented!


I started on the background. I wanted it ro be clean and simple. I just added a bit of water to the center and added Hickory Smoke Distress Ink to it with a paint brush. I dabbed off most of it, so it becomes even softer. The panel I later die cut with the Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables.

I stamped all the images and colored them with Copic Markers. Here are the colros I used:
Bicycle: R14 - R17 - R59/ E31 - E33/ C3 - C5
Hat: R14 - R17 - R59
Girl: E00 - E11
Hair: E57 - E29
Dress: W5 - W7
Shoes: R17 - R59
Cat: E31 - E33
Food: E41 - E43/ G05 - G28/ Y17 - YR15


I die cut the images with my Cuttlebug and assembled the card. I stamped the sentiment in black ink and also in Lobster Ink. I adhered the panel onto a Chili Pepper cardbase.


I Always love being inspired by other crafters.

SO THANKFUL FOR YOUR KINDNESS (2)

For this thank you card, I used the In Bloom stamp set from My Favorite Things.


I wanted to create a row of greenery and flowers. I used Lawn Fawn Inks to stamp all the images. Here are all the ink colors I used:
Greenery: Celery Stick Ink, Freshly Cut Grass Ink
Purple flowers: Fresh Lavender Ink, Grape Soda Ink, Juice Box Ink
Blue flowers: Merman Ink, Minty Fresh Ink


The blue flowers I stamped seperately and I fussy cut them out. I added them to the panel with foam tape, to create some extra dimension.

I stamped the sentiment in Merman Ink and Juice Box Ink.


I added the panel onto a Peacock cardbase and added some Nuvo Crystal Drops to the flowers. I used two colors: Emerald City and Sweet Lilac. I rounded off the top right corner to finish it off.


I sometimes like to create a floral card, for the more classic and elegant style.

YOU'RE A FLANTASTIC FRIEND (1)

For this friendship card, I used the Sweet Friends stamp set from Lawn Fawn.


I started by die cutting three squares from a piece of white cardstock. I used the Outside In Stitched Square Stackables. I kept the insides. I blended Distress Ink on all three of them, using three colors: Cracked Pistachio, Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick.


I stamped three of the images, the flan, the s'more and the froyo. I also stamped faces onto them and stamped the arms and legs, to add to them later. I colored the images with Copic Markers. Here are the colors I used:
S'More: E31 - E33/ E57 - E29/ E00 - E11
Froyo: E41 - E43/ R22 - R35/ YG41 - G02
Flan: E41 - E43/ E57 - E29/ R35
Strawberries: R22 - R35/ G04


I die cut the images with my Cuttlebug and added the arms and legs to them. I assembled the card and stamped the sentiment in Minty Fresh Ink. I added the panel onto a Vanilla Malt cardbase.


I think this is one of those stamp sets where I have way too many ideas and so little time!
