All A-Boat You!

Friday, June 14th, 2019

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!!

Tropical Card-Taylored Expressions!

Monday, April 29th, 2019

Hello crafty friends and welcome back! Laurie here, sharing a tropical themed card using stamps and dies from Taylored Expressions. TE has some awesome stamps and dies which are among some of my faves!

I started by cutting all the images from the Build A Scene-Tropical die set out of watercolour paper. I loosely watercolored each die cut with my Kuretake Gansai Tambi 36 Watercolour set. I didn’t take a lot of time adding any details, just basically slapped the colour on!!

I die cut one of the Hero Arts Infinity Circle dies out of the same paper and slopped down more colour in shades of blue and a little brown.

I added all my images, including the sweet flamingo from the Tropical Trio Stamp & Die Combo, onto the circle using a combination of Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive and Foam squares.

Before adhering the circle onto the card base, I repeatedly stamped a floral images from the same stamp & die set in a very light ink. I used foam tape to attach the scene.

The sentiment was stamped in a medium brown ink and a few details were added with a white gel pen, clear sequins and Nuvo Crystal Glaze.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!! See you soon!

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!
