Sunday, March 30th, 2014

Here’s a cute Easter bunny card tutorial I made recently using stamps from Close to My Heart (large egg), Hero Arts (polka dot) and Some Odd Girl (all others).

-On white cardstock stamp bunny, color with grey and pink markers (I used Spectrum Noir), apply snow pen or puffy white paint pen and heat with heat gun, cut out bunny

-Ink the large solid egg stamp with yellow ink and then press onto an un-inked large polka dot background stamp, this is called a kissing technique and it will transfer the background image onto the solid stamp.

-Stamp egg onto 2 1/2″x 2 1/2″ white cardstock, stamp grass in green at the bottom, adhere to a 2 3/4″x 2 3/4″ piece of tan cardstock and adhere to card front

You Can’t Put the Fire Out in My Heart

Friday, January 24th, 2014

The challenge over at the Lawnscaping blog is to make a card inspired by one of the design team members, I chose Audrey, I love her use of pattern papers, making cute scenes and she uses grass a lot, which I like to do too.

For my card I used the Critters at the Dog Park stamp set from Lawn Fawn, this cute little pooch is in love with the fire hydrant :)

Winter is finally here, it was 17 degrees yesterday when I woke up, brrrr!

Yeti Holiday Card

To get in the mood for this frigid weather I made this adorable, abominable snowman card using stamps from Lawn Fawn.

Here’s how…..

Supplies- Light blue, pale blue, tan and white cardstocks; Lawn Fawn” Yeti” and “Critters in the Snow” (snowflakes) stamp sets; blue and black inks, jute string, alcohol markers, foam tape

- First cut a piece of light blue cardstock in half and fold for the card base

-Next cut a piece of white cardstock to 5 1/4″ x 4″ and cut a pale blue piece to 5″ long and using your scissors cut a wave shape across the top

- Next trim a tan piece of cardstock to 5″ x 3 3/4″ and randomly stamp snowflakes with blue ink. Tip: Place several clear snowflake stamps onto the same block to make stamping quicker. Next stamp the words in black.

- Adhere the tan piece of cardstock on top of the white then adhere the blue wave piece, wrap a 24″ piece of hemp string around the bottom, tie in a knot and fray the edges. Adhere this to the cardstock base.

- On white cardstock using black ink stamp the yeti and color with alcohol markers and cut out. Mount him to your card using foam tape.

Sorry it’s been so long between posts, hubby got a great new job and things have been hectic!

Woodland Critters Silhouette Card

I recently got the chance to try out the new Stamping Material made for the Silhouette electronic die cutting machine. This thin clear material allows you to die cut images and then stamp with them, very cool! The material cuts really nicely but I must admit I did have some trouble getting the stamps inked up well. Chalk and pigment inks seemed to work the best but dye ink puddled up on the stamps. I did try using a small sponge dauber to apply the dye ink to the stamps (instead of inking directly on the ink pad) and got better results that way. I love the idea of cutting my own stamp designs but I do wish the material gave a better image when stamped.

For my card I used a cute die cut set of woodland critters (I added extra details to them with black and white pens). Here are the stamps themselves. I’ll probably be storing them on acetate sheets in plastic sleeves.

Over at the C. C. Designs blog they are having a summertime challenge. I have so many bees buzzing around my garden this time of year, I especially love the big, fat bumblebees! Since bees make me think of summer I made this cute card using a Sweet November fairy with her little bee friend.

Gryffindor Card

The current challenge at the Lawnscaping blog is a sketch. I decided to use the Lawn Fawn Critters Ever After set to make a Harry Potter inspired card. In addition the pattern paper is from Cosmo Cricut and the alphabet is CTMH.

Super Dog! Able to leap fire hydrants in a single bound!

Hot Dog Card

This time for the Lawnscaping Challenge it’s coloring. I used the new “Critters at the Dog Park” Lawn Fawn stamp set and colored my dog and fire hydrant with Spectrum Noir markers. I also sponged the background with inks and sponge daubers. The die cut shape is from Lifestyle Crafts and the washi tape came from EK Success.
