Miss You Card ft. Lawn Fawn!

Friday, February 22nd, 2019

Hello, crafty friends and welcome back!! Laurie here with you today to share a clean and simple “miss you” card that uses the Happy Village Stamp Set and co-ordinating dies from Lawn Fawn!  I’ve had this set for awhile and have never used it!  It is super cute and a lot of fun to colour!!

I stamped in Memento Gray Flannel ink.  I like to use this ink when I don’t want a super dark outline. I used only two shades of each marker to colour the images. I tried to keep things lighter in shade.  After everything was die cut, I started on my card base.

I masked off the top and bottom of the card base with painters tape.  I used the Cloud Stencil from My Favourite Things and Broken China Distress Ink to create a light sky.  It’s hard to tell but I added some Mowed Lawn Distress Ink to the bottom to give the illusion of ground.

I used a combination of foam adhesive and liquid glue to adhere all the images.  The sentiment in the speech bubble is from the Plane and Simple stamp set (also from Lawn Fawn) and works perfectly here!!

To finish off, I added some glitter pen to the clouds, glitter pen to the windows as well as a layer of Nuvo Crystal Glaze and a few clear sequins!!

That’s all for me today! Thank you so much for stopping by!

See you soon!



Stunning Stamping with Mama Elephant

Sunday, February 3rd, 2019

Hello friends!  My name is Dawn and I am at the little mennonite blog.  I have been blogging and card making for about 8 or 9 years, and scrapbooking on and off since I was a young teen.  I am so happy to be apart of the Scrap n Stamp team!  Today I will be working with the Mama Elephant stamp set Botanic Hello to create this simple, stunning card.


Stamp the Mama Elephant’s Botanic Hello with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto white cardstock.  You need to use Tuxedo Black Memento Ink so you can colour the image with alcohol based markers without having the stamped image run.  Colour the Botanic image with alcohol based markers such as Tombow or Chameleon.  I recommend this set.  If you use colours with a few shades of difference between each colour to get a more stunning look.  (As oppose to using colours that are very closely related.)  After the colouring was complete I cut out the image with scissors made for fine details. Use glossy accents on all of the stamens.  Adhere image to an white A2 card front using foam squares.

Add Gelly Roll gold gel pen to the letters for added interest.

Stamp the “awesome” sentiment from the Mama Elephant stamp set with VersaMark ink.  Using Lawn Fawn’s white embossing powder on Lawn Fawn’s Black Licorice Cardstock heat emboss the sentiment.  Get a good heat gun here.  I recommend getting a brand named heat gun – from experience a generic brand does not last long.  Adhere the sentiment with a strip of Be Creative 3mm Tape (a Canadian product!) and give to someone AWESOME!

Panda Birthday with Laurie!

Sunday, January 6th, 2019

Hello friends!!  Happy New Year to all!!  Well, it’s that weird time between Christmas and Valentines Day where us cardmakers are sort of in limbo.  Of course, we can continue to use our winter stamps and dies but I always get a bit antsy to start using my  spring or love themed products!

I need to start building up my birthday card stash so that’s what I made for you today!  I used two Flora & Fauna stamp sets to create this cute card..

I started by stamping that adorable panda from the Panda Set, as well as the two large flowers. Before colouring and fussy cutting the panda, I added the birthday banner from the Woodland Birthday Stamp Set.  A lot of the images in Flora and Fauna sets are scaled to work perfectly together. After colouring with my alcohol markers, I trimmed each image with scissors.

I created a simple background on a white panel cut with a stitched rectangle die by using a hand cut mask to create the hill and sky.  I used Crushed Olive Distress Ink for the green and Peacock Feathers for the blue. After adhering the flowers and the panda with foam adhesive, I decided the scene needed a wee bit more.  I stamped, coloured and fussy cut the butterfly from the Panda Set and the party hat and small leafy image from the Woodland Birthday Set.

I foam mounted the panel onto a white card base, added a few clear sequins, shimmer pen and Glossy Accents to a few areas of the scene.

Thank you for dropping in today! I hope you enjoyed taking a peek at some Flora and Fauna cuteness!!

See you soon…
