Easter Border Card

The current challenge at the Lawnscaping Challenge blog is dusting off supplies you haven’t used in awhile. For my card I got out some yellow flocking powder which I haven’t used in ages and also some decorative edged scissors, which I also just don’t pick up as much any more, even though I probably have 8-10 pairs. I used stamps from the Lawn Fawn “Happy Easter” set, adding flocking to the little chicks, now they’re yellow and fuzzy! :)

To make this card:

cut a piece of green cardstock in half and fold for the card base

trim a floral pattern paper to 4″ x 5 1/4″ and  adhere to card front

trim white cardstock to 5 1/2″ x 1″, line up flowers, eggs and chicks stamps on one long clear block and stamp twice with black ink

color all images exept chicks with markers

using a glue pen add glue to chicks and cover with yellow flocking powder, lightly press down and then tap off excess, let dry

cut blue cardstock to 5 1/2″ and cut one long edge with decorative scalloped scissors, punch small holes in each scallop

adhere stamped piece to blue piece and adhere to card front

Kitty Birthday Card

Just wanted to share the birthday card I made for my Mom this year. She has an adorable grey kitty with white “socks” on her legs so they named her Boots, so I used a kitty with a gift stamp from C C Designs and colored it with Spectrum Noir markers to look like Boots. The stamp is actually in a Christmas set but using bright yellow and blue colors instead of red and green it’s a perfect birthday stamp too. I also added the banner stamp from Lawn Fawn.

You Can’t Put the Fire Out in My Heart

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 :)

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

- 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.

Halloween Shadowbox

This time around on the Lawnscaping Challenge blog it’s paper piecing. For me it’s never too early to start thinking about Halloween so I decided to make a Halloween Shadow box using 3 different Lawn Fawn sets, Hebbie Jebbies, Critters in the ‘Burbs and Harvest Season. I can’t wait until Halloween so I can put it on my mantle!

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.

Have a Narwhal of a Time

Wednesday, September 26th, 2012

The challenge this week over on the Lawnscaping Challenge blog is to use text.

Narwhal Card

I use two Lawn Fawn stamp sets, Critters in the Sea and Critters Ever After. I wanted to turn my cute whale into an even cuter Narwhal (If you don’t know these are whales that have one large spiral horn on the top of their head, I love them) so I added the horn from the unicorn stamp to turn him into one.

narwhal steps

I started by curving the text stamp into a wave shape, I love the flexibility of clear stamps! Then I stamped it repeatedly onto vellum paper and cut it out with a wave shape at the top.

I then stamped my whale into polka dot pattern paper (My Mind’s Eye) cut it out and inked the edges using a sponge dauber.

narwhal steps

I stamped just the top of the unicorn onto scrap brown paper twice and cut out the horns, layering them to make one longer horn. And glued it to the whale’s head.

I adhered my vellum paper onto striped pattern paper (also My Mind’s Eye) and blue cardstock, putting the adhesive on the vellum where the ribbon would go so it wouldn’t show. Then wrapped the ribbon around adding a knot and button. I adhered those layers to my brown cardstock base.

Lastly I stamped stars and colored them with a glitter gel pen and tucked the Narwhal a little under the vellum. I think he turned out so cute!

Potions Class

Tuesday, August 21st, 2012

I envision this scene happening in Snape classroom at Hogwarts :)

The current challenge at Lawnscaping is to make your own pattern paper. I used three different Lawn Fawn sets for my card, the broom from Making Frosty Friends, the witches hat and top hat from Hats off to You and the frog (toad), stars, flames and wand from Critters Ever After. I made two pattern papers, the purple uses stars from the Critters Ever After set and the stone wall paper is made from the top hat from Hats Off to You. I used a post it note to mask off the bottom part of the hat and stamped the top half for my stones (see pics below). Everything is colored with colored pencils and blended with Gamsol. The cauldron die cut is from Silhouette.

This big guy better be careful or he’s going to set his pinwheel on fire!

Dragon Blowing Pinwheel Card

This weeks Lawnscaping Challenge is to use dimension. I just got the Lawn Fawn Critters Ever After set and I ADORE it! I decide to give my card a lot of dimension by making a 3-D pinwheel and adding thick foam dots behind my dragon. All stamps are from Lawn Fawn and the pattern paper is from Cosmo Cricket.
