Hero Arts CL Christmas Tree with Lawn Fawn Into the Woods~ Christmas Tag~Copic Colored~Challenge entry

Hey everyone,

So I seem to be on a Christmas roll as last week I completed my first Christmas card and this week I made some Christmas tags for the upcoming season. They are fairly simple but I think they are absolutely adorable! These tags are inspired by A Blog Named Hero Challenge.  

Lawn Fawn Into the Woods combined with Hero Arts Color Layering Christmas Tree stamp sets colored with Copic Markers and layered with dye inks handmade Christmas tag.

First I die cut all of the tags from a piece of Neenah Solar White Smooth 80 lb cardstock, but if I had to do it over, I would have cut it from a 110 lb cardstock, as the 80 lb is not as sturdy as I would like the tag to be…. Live and learn!
Next, using the MISTI tool positioner, I stamped the Christmas tree from the Hero Arts’ Color Layering Christmas Tree stamp set directly onto all of the tags using various green dye inks. The last tree layer was stamped with Versamark ink and Hero Arts’ white embossing powder to mimic snow on the Christmas tree.

Next, I began working on the focal point image and I choose to add a baby deer from Lawn Fawn’s Into the Woods stamp set. I Copic colored the images before fussy-cutting them out.

Copic colors I used: E33, E35,E37and R20

I also used white gel pen to add three white dots on his body.

To complete the tags, I stamped the sentiment from the Hero Arts’ Color Layering Christmas Tree stamp set using Hero Arts’ Black dye ink, adhered the baby deer onto some foam adhesive for dimension, added a few gems for a little bling, and looped some matching twine on top of the tags.

These tags as simple as they may be are perfect to add to the teacher’s gift or student gift exchange!

Until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

Lawn Fawn Christmas inspired card~ Copic colored~Lawn Fawnatics Challenge entry 14

Hey everyone,

I finally made my first Christmas card of the season! Not bad, considering that there is 73 days until Christmas.
This year, I’m starting a little early and I started with a whimsy, cutesy card created by combining three different stamp sets from Lawn Fawn!
This card is also my entry into the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 14 – Happy Little Critters. Please follow the link for more information.

Lawn Fawn Winter in the Park, Winter Sparrows and Ready, Set, Snow stamp sets colored with Copic Markers and Distress ink backgrounds handmade Christmas card.

I’ve been very intrigued with scene making ever since I saw a couple of other bloggers post their projects and I thought this would be an ideal opportunity to give it a go.
I first stamped all of the images onto a piece of Spectrum Noir Ultra smooth cardstock using Memento Tuxedo dye ink.
Using my Copic Markers, I colored all of the images…..

Birds: E55 and E57
Snowman: BG000, BV0000 and colorless blender
Red caps/shawls: R24 and R27
Green shawls: YG05 and YG07
Carrot Noses/Beaks: YR14 and YR18

Lawn Fawn Winter in the Park, Winter Sparrows and Ready, Set, Snow stamp sets colored with Copic Markers and Distress ink backgrounds handmade Christmas card.

Next, I created the scene for all of the cute images by creating two snow banks using Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Hillside Borders die and some white smooth cardstock.
The sky background was created by ink blending my favorite Distress Inks onto a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock.

After adhering the background pieces to an A2 sized card base, I added the images onto some foam square for dimension and a stitched frame around the edge of the card for a more polished look. And that completes my first Christmas card and entry into the challenge!

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

Lawn Fawn Hippo Birdie ~ Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 11 ~ Zig Clean Color Markers

Hey everyone,

I’m finishing the week off with this adorable card for the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 11 – Cards for kids. I created this card to give to a friends’ child for an upcoming birthday and thought it was very fitting for this challenge entry.

Lawn Fawn Year Four Hippo and Birdie stamp colored with Zig Clean Color Real Waterbrush pens and patterned paper handmade card.

I stamped the images from Lawn Fawn Year Four onto a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black ink and colored all of the images using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.

Color combinations I used:
Hippo: 075 Brick Beige
Birdie: 050 Yellow and 070 Orange 
Balloons: 202 Peach Pink and 042 Turquoise Green

Lawn Fawn Year Four Hippo and Birdie stamp colored with Zig Clean Color Real Waterbrush pens and patterned paper handmade card.

I have been loving shaker cards lately and I wanted to create a shaker card for this challenge. To start, I die cut a piece of pink cardstock using Lawn Fawns Stitched Circle Frame dies and a piece of patterned paper from DCWV Simple Joy using Lawn Fawns’ Large Stitched Rectangle Stackable dies.

Lawn Fawn Year Four Hippo and Birdie stamp colored with Zig Clean Color Real Waterbrush pens and patterned paper handmade card.

To complete this card, I adhered all of the patterned paper pieces, added some shaker pieces and added all of the images with foam squares to the top layer for some added dimension. 

I just adore the end result of this card and I’m sure it will be just as loved by the recipient! As always, thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

Lawn Fawn Elphie Selfie ~ Copic Colored ~ Happy Dance card

Hey everyone,

I just adore this little Elphie card I made and will be entering it into the Lawn Fawnatics Color Inspiration Board Challenge #9! 

Lawn Fawn Elphie Selfie colored with Copic Markers, Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Rainbow patterned paper and Lawn Fawn inks handmade card.

To create this card, I started by stamping the solid hearts from Lawn Fawn’s Elphie Selfie stamp set with the different color inks inspired by the challenge colors onto a piece of white cardstock panel. Using Lawn Fawn’s Large Stitched Rectangle Stackable dies, I cut the panel down using the second largest die.
I also stamped Elphie with Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink onto a piece of Spectrum Noir paper and colored her in using my Copic markers.

Colors I used: C1, C3 and C5

I’m still new to Copic markers and I’m still learning about the blending, shadow and color combinations but I’m practicing and hopefully it will show in my cards.

Lawn Fawn Elphie Selfie colored with Copic Markers, Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Rainbow patterned paper and Lawn Fawn inks handmade card.

To put this card together, I reached into my beloved Lawn Fawn paper hoarding stash and pulled out this teal plaid paper for the background. I cut the panel down to 4.25” by 5.5” and adhered it to an A2 sized top folding card base. (Yikes, that was my last piece of plaid paper and after a minor panic attack, I placed my order for another pad!) 
I added the hearts panel on top with fun foam for added dimension and added Elphie towards the bottom with foam tape.

For the sentiment I used Lawn Fawn’s Happy Happy Happy stamp set, and after looking at little Elphie who looks like she’s dancing, I chose Happy Dance, which I stamped onto a piece of black card stock with Versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

And that completes my very happy Elphie card for an entry into Lawn Fawnatics Color Inspiration Board Challenge #9! 

Have a great weekend, and as always, thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Kite ~ Ink Smooshing with Distress Ink ~ Spectrum Noir Markers

Hey everyone,

This cute little card was inspired by Lawn Fawn’s challenge blog summer theme challenge. They host a challenge twice a month with a new theme for each challenge. I find that the challenges allow me to step out of my card making comfort zone and try new things to learn.
So I was super excited for this challenge as I generally don’t build scenes in my cards but wanted to create a background for these cute little squirrels to fly their kites.

Lawn Fawn Cheery Christmas, Stitched Kites, and Sophie’s Sentiment handmade card colored using Spectrum Noir markers. Background created with ink smooshing Distress inks for a soft background.

The background was created by taking my favorite Distress inks for creating a sky and grass and ink smooshing them onto a piece of Ranger watercolor cardstock.
I stamped two squirrels from Lawn Fawn’s Cheery Christmas stamp set onto a piece of Spectrum Noir paper with some Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink and colored them using my Spectrum Noir markers.

Markers I used: TN3, EB3 and EB8

Moving on to the kites, I used Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Kite and die cut pink polka dot cardstock with a black frame to create two kites for these friends to play with.

Lawn Fawn Cheery Christmas, Stitched Kites, and Sophie’s Sentiment handmade card colored using Spectrum Noir markers. Background created with ink smooshing Distress inks for a soft background.

To put this card together, I adhered a piece of bright pink cardstock to the base of a top folding A2 size card base. I took the water colored panel and added some foam tape to the back, more for added support than anything else. I arranged all my images and adhered them with foam tape for some added dimension.
I wanted to bring in some black elements to tone down the brightness of the card and used black and white baker’s twine for the line of the kite and wrapped a bit of it around the bottom.
To complete this card, I used a sentiment from Lawn Fawn’s Sophie’s Sentiments and heat embossed it in white onto a piece of black cardstock.

I think it’s a super cute summer inspired card and this is my entry for the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge number 8.

I hope you’re enjoying your summer and as always, thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

Lawn Fawn Aloha ~ Distress Ink backgrounds ~ Zig Clean Color Markers

Hey everyone,

For the end of the week, I thought I’d have a go at participating in a challenge from Lawn Fawn over on their challenge blog Lawnfawnatics.com
For this week, the challenge was to add watercolor to our projects. Here is my take on the challenge number 7.

Lawn Fawn Aloha stamp colored with Zig Clean Color and Distress Inked background handmade card.

I started by taking a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock cut down to 4” x 5.5” and die cut a circle in the front. My sweet little girl helped me to cover the cardstock with color splashes using Distress Inks in Picked Raspberry, Ripe Persimmon and Wild Honey. 
To create the sunset, I used a piece of watercolor paper and using the same Distress Ink colors I created a watercolor sunset background. The technique I used, I first saw over on Kristina Werner’s blog, where you add a wash of color in a sweeping motion across the desired section. After adding all of the color choices, and drying it, I then added little swirly marks of each color and a lot of water on the brush to each color, and dried it again. I’m really happy with the end result. 
Using Lawn Fawn’s Aloha stamp and die set, I stamped the two pineapples onto a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock and Versafine Onyx black pigment ink. I colored the images using Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers in 044 deep green for the leaves, and 050 yellow and 052 bright yellow for the pineapples.

Lawn Fawn Aloha stamp colored with Zig Clean Color and Distress Inked background handmade card.

To put the card together, I took a piece of bright pink A2 sized card base and added the watercolor sunset, and top cardstock. I put the pineapples on a piece of foam tape for some dimension and added the sunglasses with a little shimmer using Spectrum Noir Sparkle glitter overlay pen. To finish the card, I added the sentiment from the same stamp set by heat embossing it with white embossing powder onto a piece of black cardstock. 
This little baby will be entered into the challenge so here’s my fingers crossed for a win! 

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

Love from Lizi products showcase

Hey everyone,

I am finally able to sit down and write my post for a few cards I made using the Love from Lizi products. Love from Lizi is an online store in the U.K that sells card kits, mega-packs, mini-packs and other crafting products. She carries the most amazing patterned paper products, in my opinion that I’ve seen.  A few weeks ago I purchased several items and was so excited to start creating with these goodies!

I mostly choose to focus on the beautiful patterned paper and added very little embellishments. And I mostly focused on birthday cards because I needed a birthday card for my mom.

Love from Lizi Card kits, mega-packs and mini-packs crafting products for handmade card.

For this card, I used two patterned papers from the January card kit I previously purchased. The bottom wood grain paper is adhered directly to the base of an A2 size card, while the beautiful rose patterned paper is accented with stitched scallop border die from Lawn Fawn and adhered to a piece of fun foam for some added dimension. To finish this card, I die cut the sentiment from an add-on die and a butterfly from the Vintage Blooms mega-pack using copper mirror cardstock.

Love from Lizi Card kits, mega-packs and mini-packs crafting products for handmade card.

For card two, I used a card base from my stash because I specifically wanted a pearlized look to the card. Using a piece of patterned paper from the Vintage Blooms mega-pack, I cut the bottom of the paper using a check mark die from MFT stitched scallop basic edge set. The bird stamp, also from the Vintage Blooms mega-pack was stamped directly onto the base of the card using VersaMark and embossed with gold embossing powder. Tip to self for future, stamping onto a card with a pearlized finish is tricky. Heat embossing is not much better. I went through a few card bases before I was happy with the end result. I stamped a sentiment from the Soft Floral mini-pack and embossed it in gold to match the bird. To finish the card, I used a heart wood chip veneer, embossed it in gold and attached it as if it’s hanging from the sentiment.

My intent was to give my mom one of these two cards for her birthday BUT as I was finishing she stood looking over my shoulder and wanted to know what I was going to do with those cards.

Love from Lizi Card kits, mega-packs and mini-packs crafting products for handmade card.

So moving onto card three, I created this background paper by stamping a faded text background using Encore ultimate metallic gold ink. I did a little ink blending using Distress Ink Oxides in Worn Lipstick to add a touch of subtle color. Using a sticker from March card kit add-on, I added some foam squares for dimension before adding it to my card. To complete the card, I added a small butterfly sticker from the same sticker set. With this card, I felt that less is more and didn’t want to take away from the subtleness by adding any more embellishments.

Love from Lizi Card kits, mega-packs and mini-packs crafting products for handmade card.

And since I was on a roll, I made one more card. This time I used the butterfly stamp from Vintage Blooms mega-pack to create a background for my card by stamping it several times onto a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock and using a charcoal embossing powder. I did some ink blending again using Distress Ink Oxides in Worn Lipstick. To finish the card, I stamped a sentiment from the stamp set in Soft Floral mini-pack onto a piece of black cardstock and embossed it with white embossing powder. I added a piece of foam tape to the back of the sentiment piece and adhered it to the card.

I wanted to mention that I was in no way sponsored to write this post or that I am not an affiliate of the shop but choose to showcase Love from Lizi products because I personally use them and I absolutely adore all of the products in her shop. More information can be found at lovefromlizi.com

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.

Lawn Fawn Thanks a bushel teacher appreciation week handmade card

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

Lawn Fawn Thanks a bushel red handmade card

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.

Stampendous’ Rose Bouquet Mother’s Day card

Hey everyone,

I’m back this week with a Mother’s Day inspired card being that Mother’s Day in about three weeks away. To get started, I stamped Stampendous’ Rose Bouquet roses, leaves and glass jar on some Spectrum Noir paper. This paper is recommended for alcohol based markers as it allows for ease of blending and minimizes the potential for bleed through. Using my Spectrum Noir markers, I colored all the images and cut them with the coordinating die set. 

Here is the list of marker I used

Roses: CR8, DR3, DR5, DR7
Leaves: CG2, CG3, CG4, DG3
Vase: BT1, BT2, IB1, IG1, IG2
Stems: CG2, CG3

Since the bouquet image when assembled was relatively large, I choose to make this card an A7 sized card. I wanted my card to have a frame around the image and since I do not own a die cut in the size I needed, I had to get a little creative. I cut a piece of red cardstock down to 5” by 7”, using Lawn Fawns Stitched Scalloped Borders die, I cut out the middle to create a frame border for my card.

I adhered the image partly flat on the card and partly on foam tape to add dimension. Using Lawn Fawns Happy Happy Happy sentiments and die set, I die cut the scripty “happy” in black cardstock three times and glued it together with multi medium matte.

To complete the card, I embossed the rest of the sentiment with white embossing powder on black cardstock, cut it using a banner die from Lawn Fawn and added a few red sequence pieces, as well as a little shimmer on the roses for a little bling.

That completes this card and I hope you found it inspiring for Mother’s Day.

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

Stampendous’ Kitty birthday card

Hey everyone,

I’m back with another cute pet inspired card. This week I used Stampendous’ Pop up Kitties stamp and die set to create this super cute birthday card. 

I started by stamping the image using Memento black ink and Bristol smooth cardstock. I colored the cute little kitten using my Spectrum Noir Markers.

Kittie birthday handmade card

Here is a list of the markers I used:

Kitten: TN7, TN5 and TN3 
Chest fur: IG1 and then I added a little sparkle with the clear glitter Wink of Stella 
Bow: IB2, IB1 and IG1. 
Eyes: IB2, IB1, IG1.

To add a little interest to the card (and try out a new embossing folder), I inked up the raised image side of the embossing folder with Hero Arts Shadow Ink in the color Tide Pool, so that the color imprints on the cardstock as I ran it through my die cut machine. This technique gives me a beautiful embossed background with a little color to adhere the kitten to.

Kittie inspired handmade birthday card

I cut the embossed panel to 3.75” x 5.5” and adhered it to a piece of teal cardstock cut to 4.25” x 5.5”, so that only a bit of the side edges peeks out. Both of the pieces were then adhered to an A2 white card base.

To complete the card, I used the new Lawn Fawn Bannertastic stamp and die to cut the banner out of the same teal cardstock as the base of the card. The sentiment I used for this card comes from Lawn Fawn’s Meow you doin’ stamp set. I thought it complemented the kitten card very well.

The inside of the card needed a little something, so I added a sentiment from the same Lawn Fawn Meow you doin’ stamp set. It reads, wishing you a pawsome day.

And that completes a very kitten inspired birthday card. As always, I will list the cards for sale in my shop in the very near future.

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