Lawn Fawn – Loads of Fun!

Hi Everyone! I am straying away from our poppy theme to celebrate some great news that I heard from a co-worker of mine. She’s expecting! This is very exciting as most of my close friends are all done having babies. So, I couldn’t help but get excited to make a baby card and I have been wanting to use the Lawn Fawn – Loads of Fun stamp set for awhile.

While searching through my stash I became disappointment. I didn’t have all the sentiments or pattern paper that I wanted to use, so I improvised and used my Silhouette program to create what I wanted. If you don’t have the silhouette program that’s okay! You can use Microsoft Word, Pages or something similar to create the same thing.

I also wanted to make this into a shaker card…but with a twist! I was using a technique of Jennifer McGuire’s to make some Christmas cards and thought it would work perfect for this one too! It is using laminator sheets and embossing power for the window. I like how this ups the look of the shaker card from just using plain acetate sheets.

It is much easier to watch this card come together instead of trying to describe it…so, click on the video below!

Combining Stamp Companies

Saturday, October 12th, 2019

Hello and welcome back! One of my favourite things to do is to combine different stamp companies on one project. This actually took me quite awhile to get comfortable with. I always thought it was “taboo” to have a bunch of different brands on one card, haha!

But, in fact, by combining your sets, you open up a whole new world of possibilities! More often than not, they compliment each other very well. I chose to combine Gina K Designs and Lawn on my card today.

I coloured up some flowers and all the leaves from the Elegant Aster Stamp Set from Gina K. I’ve been loving coloured pencils lately so that was my medium of choice. I used the co-ordinating dies to cut each image out.

Now, I think the florals would have looked great directly on the card front but by using the Polka Heart Backdrop Die from Lawn Fawn it took the card to another level! By using a tone on tone look, the background die gave texture and a bit of dimension. I did trim the heart background just a bit.

I used a sentiment from the Wavy Sayings Stamp Set from Lawn Fawn and stamped it on a Simple Wavy Banners die cut.

I popped up the floral arrangement as well as the sentiment. I didn’t add any sort of embellishment which was hard to do! But I actually like the look of the simple, no fuss look!

Thank you for dropping by today! Have a great day and a Happy Thanksgiving!!

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!
