Lawn Fawn So Owlsome | Thanks Teacher Line Border Die | Copic Marker | Teacher Card

Hello everyone,

I had an opportunity to get into my craft room recently and play with some of the new Fall/Winter 2018 Lawn Fawn products to create an adorable owl teacher card.

Lawn Fawn So Owlsome Stamp set, Thanks Teacher Line border die and Knit Picky Fall Collection Paper pad teacher card.

I stamped the three owls, an apple, tree branch and the glasses onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 80 lb. cardstock using Memento Tuxedo ink and colored them in with my Copic markers.

Color combination I used:
Owls: E37, E35, and E31 outer part of the body.
E53, E51 and R20 on the face and belly.
YR04 and YR02 on the feet and beak.
Apple: R27, R24 and R22
Tree Branch: E27, E25, E23 and E21

To assemble my card, I die cut a few different patterned papers from the new Knit Picky Fall Collection using a stitched rectangle die, a stitched hillside border die and outside in stitched scalloped rectangle die. I also used the new Thanks Teacher line border die which I die cut using black glittered cardstock and added as my sentiment across the center of the focal point panel.

Lawn Fawn Thanks a bushel ~ Teacher Appreciation Week card

Hey everyone,

This week I continue with projects for teacher’s appreciation week with two adorable cards I made for two special teachers.

This time I used a stamp and die from Lawn Fawn called Thanks a bushel. I started by stamping the basket of apples and individual apples onto some Spectrum Noir paper with black tuxedo Memento dye ink.

Using my Spectrum Noir markers, I colored my apples in red and green. Here is the list of markers I used:

Red apples: CR8, DR2 and DR5
Green apples: DG1, CG3, IG1
Leaves: CG4 and DG4
Basket: TN3, TN5 and TN7 the rim of the basket was colored using TN8 and EB5

To create a card, I cut the coordinating color cardstock to 4 inch by 8 inch and scored it at 4 inch mark so that my card base is a perfect square at 4” x 4”. I also cut some coordinating plaid paper down to 3.75” x 3.75” and added the stitching with Stitched Borders die from Lawn Fawn.

I adhered the plaid paper and the basket of apples with some foam squares for added dimension. I embossed a sentiment from the set with black embossing powder and stamped a message on the inside that reads “for being a great teacher!”

And that completes a couple of very simple, yet very adorable teacher appreciation cards.

Cricut Iron-on and Vinyl projects

Hey everyone,

This week I thought I’d play with my Cricut Explore Air 2 for a couple of projects that I wanted to make. I personally feel that a handmade personalized gift is worth more than a bought one. You’re able to personalize a gift in any shape or form and give a unique one-of-a-kind gift to a loved one.
First up, I wanted to make a special birthday gift for a friend of mine. I recently saw some personalized t-shirts for sale and I wanted to make a similar one for her. I also wanted to specifically read “Hospice Nurse” in the phrase.

In design space, I started by setting a canvas first so that I know where to place my words. I love this feature, as it lets me visualize the end result.
I added the text using two different fonts, so that it adds some contrast. And finally I added a nurse hat from Dr. Checkup cartridge.
I had some work ahead of me with the nurse hat, since this was to be an iron-on layered image. This was my first attempt at slicing an image and I think I did pretty well.
After completing the final touches on my design, it was time to start cutting. This was my second time cutting iron-on material so I had my fingers crossed that I did everything right.
Using black glitter iron-on from Cricut, I cut my phrase all in one cut. And then I cut the nurse hat in a separate cut using white, red and black glitter iron-on material.
After finishing the process, I thanked my lucky starts that everything was just right on the shirt as her birthday was next day and there was no plan B.

For my second project, I wanted to try my hand at vinyl and making a personalized gift for the upcoming teacher’s appreciation week.

Again, starting with a canvas that I was working on allowed me to place my phrases exactly where I wanted and change the font accordingly. I thought it was more playful to have a mix of two fonts and make the phrase stand out.
I chose Oracal 651 vinyl sheet in pink to cut my phrase. I’ll be honest, it tested my patience to weed out all those little cuts but I persisted and after a while I had my phrase ready to be placed on the mug. I had some trouble with the little tails on some of the letters lifting but I used a bit of distress collage medium to glue them down.
And that completes my projects this week using my Cricut Explore Air2.

Thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!
