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!

What’s Moo?

Hi Everyone! It’s Susan and I’ve got something fun to share with you today. I love making fun fold cards – especially when they’re as easy as this one! I love that it doesn’t look like it’s more than just a regular card when you first look at it but…

…when you pick it up you see that it opens up.

The measurements for this card can vary to whatever size panels you want to use. I used a standard size card base of 4 1/4 x 11″ and scored at 5 1/2″ for a top folding card. I searched through my stash of designer paper and found two patterns that looked good together. The key for using two different patterns is if they have the same colors in them then they will most likely look good together.

I stamped 3 images from Tim Holtz Funny Farm stamp set onto white card stock, added color by inking up an image from Concord and 9th’s Background Blocks stamp set with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and then cut them out with the Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle dies. There’s no set size for this – pick a size that works for you. The next step is the important part. Layer your stamped piece onto another color of card stock leaving an equal amount of space around 3 of the edges – I left 1/8″ – but on the 4th side leave an extra 1/2″ – score and fold it at that mark. Here’s a picture of an image I chose not to use showing what I mean. You can see the 1/8″ border I left all the way around and on the left is the extra 1/2″ with the scored line.


All right now that all that is out of the way let’s put this thing together! I decided to make a quick video showing you – click HERE to watch it on YouTube.

I hope you enjoyed this and are inspired to make something.

Happy Stampin’

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!
