Witching You

Sunday, September 16th, 2018

Hello all! Kia here with you today to share this Halloween card I did using the delightfully sweet stamp set from My Favorite Things called Frightfully Sweet.

These little critters make me laugh with their costumes and masks. I coloured the animals using Chameleon Markers. On the fox I treated the upper face fur as a mask, colouring it in purple marker and covering with Wink of Stella for some glitter. I added white gel pen for highlighting on the hats, cape and pumpkins.

For the background I sponged using distress oxide in ripe persimmon and wilted violet, then splattered with water and die cut the panel using My Favorite Things die called Inside and Out Diagonal Stitched Die set. I then did the smaller panel using the same die, however I also cut the frame out, sponging the frame in the wilted violet and the inside panel using carved pumpkin. I also splattered water droplets on the inside panel. I then taped the two pieces together, and added foam tape to attach it to the card. I arraged the critters on foam squares like a group of kids coming to the door to fetch candy, then stamped the sentiment using Memento black ink and finished with a few Nuvo Jewel Drops in Orange Marmalade.

I hope you enjoy this card and thank you for visiting today.


My Neighbourhood

Thursday, September 6th, 2018

Hello. Kia here with you today to share this card I made using stamps and dies from Concord & 9th called City Stacks.

My inspiration for my card comes from my neighbourhood.  I am an apartment dweller, who fortunately overlooks a beautiful old street that has homes which were built in the 20’s and 30’s. They are huge homes with beautiful old trees and wonderful landscaping. And, fortunately, we do not have any other apartment buildings that block the views. And, as you can imagine, autumn is stunning in my neck of the woods.

I am using Arches cold press watercolour paper for my card today, but any watercolour paper can be used. I am also using distress inks for this card. I have both the markers and mini cubes, and if I am missing a colour in one, I will have it in the other.

I started by stamping the building using jet black ink, then painted the sky using tumbled glass and blueprint sketch. I then did the building using wilted violet. The green is the background that will show when I attach the tree stack, so I have painted it using mowed lawn.

I then stamped and die cut the tree line stack, keeping in mind that this stack will be behind the row of house, so I cut my paper accordingly. As I do not want a lot of bulk here, I go along the bottom of my cut piece with my bone folder, which flattens it somewhat, therefore not adding extra bulk. I then watercoloured the grass with the mowed lawn, and the trees I did using dried marigold, fozzilized amber, spiced marmalade and a bit of candied apple.  I also went around the trees with the mowed lawn as I did not want any of the white showing.

I then moved on to the house, stamping and die cutting the piece to allow for my sentiment. I painted the houses in worn lipstick, tumbled glass, dried marigold and used fired brick for the doors and roofs. I added squeezed lemonade in the windows for light. I have some hickory smoke on the window ledges and steps. And, it is while I am typing this and looking at the card below that I realize I did not paint the flowers in the window boxes. Well, the flowers were pulled to make way for the coming autumn. 🙂

I finished my card by stamping one of the sentiments from the set in jet black ink. So, in the end this is a three layer card, yet it does not feel like it has that many layers.

I hope you have enjoyed this card today and thank you for visiting. The products used today can be found in the store, I have also listed them for you below.


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

Thursday, August 16th, 2018

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!

-Jessica
