A Card with No Stamping!

Friday, July 26th, 2019

Hello friends! Welcome back to the SNS Blog! Today I have a card made with die cutting only…no stamping whatsoever!

I went through my stash of Lawn Fawn goodies and decided to make a Hello card using only dies. In particular, the Outside In Stitched Flower, the Stitched Flower and the Outside In Stitched Speech Bubbles die sets.

I cut each flower from the Spring Plaid paper pack (also, Lawn Fawn) along with the leaves. These are large flowers and fill up the front of a card nicely.

I used craft foam for dimension on the pink flower and used liquid glue for the blue one. I adhered the flowers onto a white panel cut with Stitched Rectangle Die. I thought it needed a little seperation from the white card base so I layered some grey cardstock behind the focal panel.

I added a few grey crystals for embellishments and some Shimmer Pen to the cheeks of the blue flower and the “hi” diecut, which is included in the Speech Bubbles Die Set!

This is quite a simple card although it does take a bit of time to die cut all the pieces. But well worth it in the end!

Thanks for dropping in! See you soon!

You Bring Me Joy!!

Monday, July 8th, 2019

Hello, crafty friends and welcome back! Laurie here to share a summery card using stamps and dies from My Favorite Things! This includes a Christmas stamp and die set!

One of my all time fave MFT sets is the Rustic Wildflowers. I love this simple, floral layering set that I just may have to get the More Rustic Wildflowers set!! I started by stamping almost every image from this set, some more than once. I chose to use only 2 colours for my project. Pink for the flowers and a light teal for the leaves!

I played around with a design for a LONG time and finally settled on creating a partial frame with only a few of the stamped images. I thought a panel of kraft cardstock would look quite nice so after running it through with a diagonal stripe embossing folder, I adhered it to a top fold, landscape, A2 sized card base.

The sentiment comes from the holiday themed Filled With Joy Stamp Set along with its co-ordinating dies. By simply switching the colour scheme, this card is not Christmas-y at all! I had originally stamped the sentiment onto a banner but it really overtook the “joy” die cut. Instead, I trimmed around it with scissors and adhered it over top of the “O” for a little interest.

I decided to not add any sparkle. I know, shocking! Instead, I went with three black gems to tie into the sentiment and the centres of the flowers.

Thank you for stopping by today and hoping your week is wonderful!

Nautical Card ft. Lawn Fawn!

Saturday, June 29th, 2019

Hello, friends! Welcome back! Laurie here with you today to share a very nautical card featuring stamps and dies from Lawn Fawn!

I started to create my scene by die cutting a circle out of white cardstock. This will be the base. I then cut some navy cardstock with the same circle die and ran it through my die cutting machine with the Polka Heart Backdrop Die. I was going for a nighttime, starry sky only with hearts instead of stars, haha!

I used scraps of kraft and blue cardstock for the sea and the island. I used two of the dies from the Stitched Simple Wavy Border Dies Set. I made sure to use the same circle die to round the edges and make everything fit and look pretty! I used liquid glue to adhere the heart backdrop, the waves and the island to the white circle die cut.

I stamped and coloured the light house from the Smooth Sailing Stamp Set and used the co-ordinating dies to cut it out.

I decided to cut my own “rays” from yellow cardstock to help them stand out against the dark back ground. I simply trimmed tiny triangle slivers.

I stamped the sentiment onto a banner die using the same yellow cardstock as the rays. I thought this tied everything together! Before foam mounting my scene to a 4.25 X 4.25 inch square card base, I used a Diagonal Stripe embossing folder to add a bit of interest. Plus, stripes and nautical go so well together!

The only accent I added was some Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the light portion of the lighthouse. And that’s my finished card! I really hope you enjoyed todays look at some of my favourite stamps and dies from Lawn Fawn!

Wishing you a wonderful, long weekend if you’re in Canada and a wonderful “regular” weekend if you’re not!
