Here’s one of the cards we’ll be making:
The challenge this week over on the Lawnscaping Challenge blog is to use text.
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.
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.
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!
I recently reviewed a wonderful group of products from A Muse Studio for my blog over at Craft Gossip. They generously sent me several stamp sets, a bunch of ink pads and pattern paper. I honestly loved everything and had a great time creating my cards. If you’d like to check out my review and see several more card ideas you can find it by clicking here and visiting Craft Gossip. We’re also sponsoring an amazing giveaway from A Muse starting on Monday the 16th, so you might want to check it out and enter to win a great prize package.
Just wanted to share a couple of cards I made recently.
This one uses a stamp from the Character Construction’s Bird and Bee Paperie line. I adore how the bunny’s tale is poking out in the back! The paper I used is My Mind’s Eye.
The next card uses stamps from Stampin’ Up’s set Just Buzzin’ By. I used a glitter pen on the bee’s wings and liquid dimensional adhesive (aka, liquid glass, crystal lacquer, etc) on the honey to give it some shine. I used Echo Park paper on this one.
Both cards were colored with Prisma Color Pencils and odorless mineral spirits (aka Gamsol)
The theme this go ’round over at the Lawnscaping Challenge blog is Clean and Simple. It’s truely a challenge for me since I love to layer, distress, etc. But I came up with this card using the dog from Critters in the ‘Burbs, adding some words from CTMH and a paw print punch. I colored the dog with Prisma pencils and added the lines with a thin marker. It’s going to be our Mother’s Day card for my mother in law (who loves dogs and is paws down the best mom in law around!)
It felt so good to stamp today! After spending 6 long weeks recovering from surgery it felt so good to sit down and be creative!
I needed to make a couple of birthday cards and the one I made for my mother in law (who loves the sea and anything nautical) fit perfectly with the latest Lawnscaping challenge Stamp a Scene . All the stamps are from Lawn Fawn’s Critters of the Sea set and all the pattern papers are from My Mind’s Eye.
It seems strange to be making a winter card right now, this has got to be one of the mildest winters in Ky I can ever remember! But the challenge this time over at Lawnscaping is Winter Wonderland so I broke out my Making Frosty Friends and Critters in the Forest sets. This cute little snowy owl is sporting earmuffs and sitting on a tree stump that’s covered in liquid applique snow and glitter. The background paper is from Close To My Heart and I thought it went perfectly with the stamped images.
