Stud Muffin

Sunday, June 16th, 2019

Dawn here, from the little mennonite blog, with a “stud muffin” card for you today.

Directions:

Using a blue and orange alcohol ink, alcohol ink on vellum. Let dry. Stamp Hero Arts’ muffin with Tim Holtz Alcohol Lift Pad. Wait 8 mins and then wipe off lifted ink. Cut out vellum muffin and white card stock muffin.

Using Quinn’s ABCs die cut the word “hello” out of shinny craft foam. Die cut the word “stud” with Memory Box letter dies. Also die cut blue Lawn Fawn Fancy Wavy Banner.

Assemble the hello banner and then adhere to vellum. Flip vellum over and add adhesive to the vellum where the banner will cover. Adhere to white card stock. Add the word “stud.”

Embossed Circles

Happy Friday Everyone! I hope you all find some time to create this weekend… I always feels kinda guilty inside in my craft room when the sun is shining and the weather is so beautiful outside. I need to work on finding a good inside/outside balance LOL!

This card was fun to put together. I pulled out some stitched circles and put them together in different pairings to create some different circles. I used my Big Shot and an embossing mat to create the embossed stitched circle background.

You can see in the photo above how I did the circles. I used a wide piece of Post-It Tape and put the dies down on it so that the non-cutting side of the die is stuck to the tape. I was then able to use the Post-It tape to secure the dies where I wanted them on the cardstock panel.

I put this die embossed panel on to a piece of blue cardstock allowing for a 1/16″ border on all sides and then placed it all on to a white card base.

To create the sentiment, I first stamped the Lawn Fawn word “birthday” on to the front of the card in green ink. I then created a partial rainbow background using ink and the Picket Fence Life Changing Blender Brushes on white cardstock. I then used the Lawn Fawn die to cut it out and added some black “stitch” lines with a black marker. I adhered the die cut word with the Quickie glue pen.

I love trying to be creative when making clean and simple cards… sometimes it’s difficult to add a little “something extra” with a technique or products without taking it over the top.

All A-Boat You!

Happy Friday!! Laurie here to share a super fun, shaped card using some of the new release from Lawn Fawn! Making shaped cards is one of my favourite things to do and is so easy!

I started by stamping images from the new Smooth Sailing Stamp Set and coloured them up with my alcohol markers. I used the co-ordinating dies to cute each image out. I also thought that the sun from the Happy Village Stamp Set would look cute on this card as well!

The card base itself was made by die cutting the largest circle in the Fancy Scalloped Circles Dies from Lawn Fawn two times. Simply score one of the die cuts approx 3/4 inch from the top, add your adhesive of choice and stick together!

To add to my scene, I used the new Simple Stitched Wavy Borders to create the waves. I used Broken China Distress Ink on the water and Tumbled Glass for the sky.

I added the circle shape onto my fancy card base. Only a couple of the images are adhered with foam adhesive. This is actually quite a flat card. I manipulated the sentiment stamp to fit onto one of the Simple Wavy Banner Dies and used a red ink to stamp.

I added a sparkly star to one of the sails and a few clear sequins. And this card is done!! I hope you enjoyed this nautical, shaped card!

Have a great day!!
