Hi everyone it’s Holly here today with a fun project using Lots and Lots of Die cuts!!

mp1

All the stamps and dies I’m using today are from My Favorite Things. I started by creating a frame using the Whimsical Woodgrain background stamp from MFT and some Doe Ink from Lawn Fawn on a piece of Kraft card stock. Then I die cut the frame using the Blueprints #15 & #29. Then I die cut an additional piece of White using the smaller rectangle from Blueprints #29. I added the frame to a top folding White A2 size card base with some liquid glue and then I trimmed out the top portion of the card base showing through the frame with a craft knife.

mp2

Then I stamped the images from the Adorable Hog Heaven set from MFT onto some Neenah Solar White card stock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them in with Copics: E30, E34, E44, E47, R0000. R00, R01, R02, YG17 & G07. I die cut the images using the coordinating dies. Using the smaller of the stitched rectangles from the Frame I created, I die cut a  piece of White card stock and added some Distress Inks in Crushed Olive and Mowed Lawn to create the grass. Then I added the images to the card front and then on the reverse side making sure they lined up.

mp3

I die cut a second panel from the smallest stitched rectangle and added some Distress Inks in Salty Ocean and Tumbled Glass. Then I die cut some Puffy Clouds from MFT and added the sentiment from Hog Heaven. This set is the Cutest!!!

Check out the video for more details on how I created this card.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Hi everyone… Holly here! Who’s ready for a fun new Challenge? This time it’s all about Halloween… and I created a super cute and maybe a little spooky card using the super adorable Booyah set from Lawn Fawn.

mph2

I die cut a piece of watercolor paper using a stitched rectangle die and then I created a watercolored background using some Distress ink in Hickory Smoke and Black Soot. Once the background was dry I added some splatter with some Picket Fence Distress Spray Stain.

I stamped the ghost onto some white card stock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them in with Copics in the following colors : C9,C7, C5, C3, C1, C0, Y21, Y26, E23, BV04, BV08 & 0. I cut them out and outlined the edges with a Tuxedo Black marker. Then I adhered them to the background using some dimensional adhesive. The image panel was mounted to a Black card base.

mp3

I stamped the sentiment from the same set onto a piece of watercolor card stock and added it to the front with dimensional adhesive as well. There’s some purple on the Witches hat and I wanted to bring some more of that in so I added some Lilac Sprinkles from Doodlebug for an added pop! Each Ghost image is covered with some Clear Wink of Stella as well. As I was writing this I noticed I forgot to add Frankie’s Stitches lol … so when you get this set.. don’t forget the stitches.

Check out the Video below to see how I created this fun card.

Hi Crafters! It’s Valerie here, and my card today is for our Challenge that starts today: Back to School! Having 4 kids myself, I LOVE making school cards!

I pulled out lots of oldies-but-goodies from my Lawn Fawn collection:

I used the Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Duo 3 die to cut the blue background piece. The paper is from Doodlebug’s 6×6 Back to School paper pad.
