Nancy’s Got the Scoop

I am back with this fun card for Scrap’N Stamp. I couldn’t be happier but  I have to be honest my mojo had taken a hit big time.

So I apologize for not having the usual step by step instructions and or photos,

I was so focused on getting my idea out that I totally blanked on taking pictures along the way.

I hope you find inspiration with this card.

I used numerous Lawn fawn products for this card all of which can be found at Scrap’n Stamp and are linked below.

I had the Here’s the scoop stamp set in my stash for some time  and had not used it ever, so when I purchased the add on to the reveal wheel I knew I wanted to use it together to create a fun card, then I thought how cool would it be to do a double interactive card, not only the outside being playful but the inside too.

So to start off the card I pulled out my Tim Holtz water color paper and my versa fine black onyx ink and started stamping out the images.  I used my misti as the paper is textured and I wanted to make sure I got a good impression.  I decided stamp out two panels, one of which I could practice on.

Once I had everything stamped I decided to do all my die cutting for the card, from the reveal wheel to the pivot pop up, this way I wasn’t going back and forth from my desk to my die cutting machine.  I die cut all the reveal wheel portions from the water color paper, as well as the ice cream cones. Once that was done I die cut the pivot pop up from the same color of card stock that I would end up using for the card base, which was Robins blue from bazzill.

The card base it self is a standard top folding A2  4¼ x 5½

I used numerous different types of water colors from my stash to paint in the main panel of the card.  I just kept it very loose and fun not worrying about shading or anything like that. For the wheel and for the ice cream cone images I used my Ken Oliver color burst to add some quick and vibrant color. I loved how it turned out and how vibrant they are.

I popped up the reveal wheel on to some Yellow paper to make everything pop. I adhered everything together with strong adhesive to make sure everything held because this card has a LOT of dimension. ( so much so I had a hard time getting good pictures-especially for the inside)

To finish off the card I stamped out the Here’s the scoop sentiment on to a tiny die cut banner, and for the inside I found a sentiment from a old sticker collection I had in my stash, it just worked so well.

Thank you for stopping and I do hope you found some inspiration from this card.

All products are linked on my blog and stay tuned as I will be doing a giveaway shortly to thank everyone for their patience.

Have a wonderful Weekend.

Screen Time After My Own Heart | Lawn Fawn Miss You Card

Hi everyone it’s Jessica here! Today I’m sharing a very sweet card that I made for my little guy, he’s been away visiting his grandma and I miss him lots! We’ve been texting with the help of emojis and gifs which inspired me to use Screen Time and Selfie Frames by Lawn Fawn.

I started by creating an A2 sized rectangle with mint pattern paper, to set the scene I die cut an “iphone” and placed it in the centre. Next, I stamped the sentiments using black and pink ink.

For the main image I stamped and colored in using alcohol markers adding 3D foam tape for dimension. To finish off the card, I added clear sequins, as well as “love ya” and “smile” die cuts for added interest.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Tuesday with Tara {take 162}

Happy Tuesday!  Today’s card came about playing with some of the pieces from last week that I didn’t end up using on my card… this week my little chameleon is feeling carefree and a bit snarky, thanks to inspiration from Tim Holtz’s Snarky Small Talk Stickers!  I’ve used a flip-it card base & coffee cup dies by Sizzix to put this fun little card together…

Simple, but fun!  Here’s a look at how the card folds & lays flat:

I love how the center piece (a circle on this card) flips to reveal the inside sentiment 🙂  Here’s a close up look at the card front:

Those fabulous white splatters are Picket Fence Distress Stain spray- I was really impressed how white they stayed!  I didn’t spray them, just removed the nozzle and splattered from the spray tube.  I’ve been having some computer issues, but I’ll be back to add links to some of the great products I’ve used that are available in the store right now!  I had fun creating with my leftover supplies and I hope you like how it came out!

Inky hugs,

Tara
