HUGS

Written by Holly Endress. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects), Tutorials, Uncategorized, Videos

Happy Tuesday everyone… It’s Holly here today and I have a new video and a Super Cute card featuring Your Next Stamp & My Favorite Things!

I started out with a piece of Neenah Solar White card stock and I die cut a panel using the Blueprints 27 die-namics from MFT. Then I die cut the Big Hugs from MFT from the center of the panel. I added a piece of pattern paper from Doodlebug’s new Spring Things 6×6 pad behind the HUGS opening. Then I added an additional piece of pattern paper from the same pack to a White Card base and adhered the sentiment panel.

I stamped some birds from the Your Next Stamp Word Critters- Gardening Birds set using Lawn Fawn’s Jet Black ink and colored them in with the following Copics. BG0000, BG10, BG11, Y17, No, N1, N3, YG01, YG03 & YG25 Then I used the coordinating die cuts to cut them out and I adhered them using foam tape.

I stamped the sentiment onto a scrap of the pattern paper and used the banner from the Blueprint 27 set to die cut it out. I adhered it just under the HUGS with some additional foam tape. For some shimmer I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the birds and some Sparkling Clear Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

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

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

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.

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.

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!!!

Make a Wish Lawn Fawn Card

Written by Heidi. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hello everybody, Heidi here sharing with you this birthday card using the new “Party Animal” Lawn Fawn stamps and dies.

I wanted to make a really soft card that would work for a little girl’s birthday, since we have a girl’s birthday party to go this coming weekend. I also used some of the new “Stiched border dies from Lawn Fawn, they don’t make any cut, they just emboss a nice stitched line, and some of the new Lawn Fawn dye inks.

Let me show you this card and I will tell you a little bit more about it.

As always all the supplies are listed and linked below

DSC_7516I kept all the coloring really soft and I placed my critter off to the right side. I also limited my cross stitched border to the left bottom corner. I sometimes like to off set things and I also like to try different placements for my card’s elements. It’t that little imperfection that sometimes make the hand made cards special, right?

 

DSC_7513One fun thing about most Lawn Fawn sets is, that they are full of little images that would help you make cute backgrounds. The Party Animal stamp set is not the exception, it has cute little confetti to complement your party scenes. I did all the stamping with Lawn Fawn inks and I color all the images with Copic Markers. For the shading on the right bottom corner I used Peacock Feather Distress ink and kept it really soft.

 I hope you’ll enjoy this and that you’ll try some of these adorable Lawn Fawn products.

It was one of those cards that makes you happy to make, it might been because of  the puppies, (I love puppies) I really enjoyed making this card, so I hope you give it a try. It came together real easy, I think, with this stamp and dies set, once you have all your pieces all colored and cut you can create a real cute scene. so let’s take a look and I will tell you a little bit more about it

As always all the supplies are listed and linked below

DSC_7481

The sentiment on the top part is from the Mama Elephant “Honey Bunny” stamp set, the sentiment on the lower part is from the Mama Elephant “Sunday Sentiments” stamp set.

DSC_7480  To create the sky and grass, I simply masked the area with a piece of post it tape and used “Distress Ink” to softly blend the grass and sky.

DSC_7479I colored the puppy on the right to make him look like my own puppy and I gave the other puppy a spotted look.  

I hoped you’ll enjoy this card and that you try these adorable sets by Mama Elephant Stamps
