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
stamp sentiment in black on card front
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
Is it too early for holiday projects? I just did a review over on Craft Gossip for the Silhouette Printable Canvas and thought it would be perfect for a tree ornament. I printed a digital stamp onto the canvas, coloring it with markers and adding some white puffy paint to his hat. I die cut the canvas twice with a label shape, since the canvas is sticky I was able to sandwich the pieces together with some batting in the middle to make a cute puffy fabric ornament.
Aren’t these black kitties adorable?! They look like they are such good helpers for their witches and wizards!
I made these two ACEO/ Artist Trading cards (3 1/2″ x 2 1/2″)using stamps from C.C. Designs. I stamped each kitty onto white cardstock with Memento Black ink and use Spectrum Noir markers to color them. It’s so easy to add shadowing, shading and depth with these markers! I love them! I’m not sure if you can tell but I also added touches of glitter using a Stardust Gell Roll, to the potion bottles and the hat band. I then cut each image out and mounted them using foam tape onto an orange harlequin pattern paper. Onto the pattern papers I stamped some fun text and a spider web or stars. Then mounted the pattern paper onto cardstock. I think they turned out so cute! These cards are currently available in my Etsy shop.
I’ve entered these in the C C Designs Monthly challenge.
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.
I adore Jane Austen, the books, the movies, the BBC miniseries, all of it! I have a wonderful Jane inspired stamp set from Oxford Impressions that has Regency style images and quotes from Jane’s books and it’s quickly becoming one of my favorite sets. It so much fun to color, especially the womens dresses. I recently made a set of 3 Artist Trading Cards (ATC’s) using them. I stamped the images with black Memento ink on cardstock and colored the images with Spectrum Noir markers (I can not stop using these markers!) and then stamped the quotes onto clear acetate and attached them over the images with brads onto coordinating colored cardstock. I also added a charm to each one that went along with the theme.
These are currently available in my Etsy shop . These have now sold.
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!
