Happy Everything with Lawn Fawn!

Sunday, April 14th, 2019

Happy Sunday and welcome!!  Laurie here, with a clean, simple and card!!  I used a couple of Lawn Fawn sets along with a stencil from My Favourite Things to create this card.

What is great about this card is that it can be used for any occasion!! I stamped the line of cute flowers from the Simply Celebrate stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  I used alcohol markers to colour them in which was super simple and quick!! I used the co-ordinating die to cut it out.

I chose the sentiment “happy everything” from the Happy Happy Happy Stamp set.  This set is full of happy greetings for any occasion and the co-ordinating die set is awesome as it cuts out three different fonts of happy!!

Before adhering all the die cuts and the sentiment strip, I used the Hills and Waves stencil from MFT along with one of the Life Changing Brushes and a green ink to create a soft, wavy background.  I did die cut the “happy” and the flowers 3 more times out of white cardstock and adhered them together.  This gave great dimension!

Everything was adhered with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.  I added some clear sequins for some sparkle and some smiley faces to a few of the flowers.

Thanks for stopping by!! See you soon!


I Love You, Rain or Shine

Sunday, March 17th, 2019

Welcome back!! Laurie here, back to share a fun card made using some Lawn Fawn goodness!!  I have a soft spot in my heart for Lawn Fawn clouds. I think they are so darned cute!  So I just had to have the Rain or Shine Before n’ Afters Stamp Set.  This set was made to go with the Magic Picture Changer Die but can also be used alone, which is what I did for my card today.

I started by stamping the rainbow image and a few of the cloud images.  After colouring them in with my alcohol  markers, I used the co-0rdinating dies to cut them out.

For the background, I cut the Polka Heart Backdrop Die out of white cardstock and layered it onto a piece of grey cardstock.  This backdrop die is so beautiful!!

I adhered the heart panel onto a white, top fold card base and used foam adhesive to adhere all my images except one set of clouds, in which case, I used Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.  The sentiment was white heat embossed onto the same grey cardstock and cut down into strips.  These were also foam mounted.

I ended up using the Polka Heart Backdrop die on a small piece of scrap, yellow cardstock so I could add a few yellow hearts back into the design.  I felt a little extra pop of colour was needed.  I also added some sparkle with a Clear Wink of Stella marker to the clouds and the yellow hearts as well as a generous helping of Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the rainbow!

And that’s my finished card for today!! I hope you enjoyed!

Thank you for dropping by the blog today!



Sweet Bear

Wednesday, March 6th, 2019

This is Sweet Bear – I wanted to call him Sweetie Pie Bear, but settled for Sweet Bear. I always like to find other ways to use my stamp sets other than what they are intended for. This bear is from Penny Black’s Space Reserved, where he is normally sitting on a bench holding a balloon. I stamped only the bear using Ranger Archival Ink in Sepia, and fussy cut him, so he could sit on the bottom of the top panel and swing his legs. I know he is a he, as he has peach coloured cheeks, girls have pink coloured cheeks.

I water coloured him using Distress Inks in Scattered Straw, Brushed Corduroy and Walnut Stain, adding a bit of Spiced Marmalade to his cheeks.

I die cut the Ranger Distress Water Colour paper with my Penny Black Stitched Stackers, the proceeded to do a distress oxide background using Cracked Pistachio, Broken China and Faded Jeans. I did splattering on the panels, one with the Broken China and the other with the Faded Jeans.

To finish my card I matted the larger piece with white card stock and attached to the blue card base. I then attached fun foam to the smaller panel using scor-pal tape to create some dimension to the card. The bear I styled then attached using foam squares. As a finishing touch I stamped the butterflies using Cobalt ink and added Wink of Stella to them along with the bears nose.

Following is the video I did for this card.
