Lawn Fawn Toucan Do It

Hey crafty friends! How many times have you heard that classifying yourself as a beach or mountain person says something about your personality? Apparently, beach people are more of an extrovert and mountain people are more introverts.  

I’m not sure if there is any truth but it’s been a dream of mine to visit the mountains of the rainforest and the inspiration behind my card.

For this card, I used Toucan Do It, Stitched Mountain Borders, and Meadow Borders Die all by Lawn Fawn. I began by stamping the images onto smooth cardstock and using my Copic Markers to color everything in the following color combinations.

 

Copic Marker Combination

Cheetah Body: E59, E57, E55, E53, E51, E50
Cheetah Spots: E29, E23
Toucan: N9, N7, N5, N3, Y35, YR00, Y00, YG05, B05, B00, R39
Butterflies: B05, B00, N7, RV19, RV52
Tropical Palm Leaves: G28, G07, YG25, YG11
Tropical Foliage: BG57, BG32, Y06,
Tree Branches: E27, E25, E23, E21, YG01, YG05, YG17
Hibiscus Flower: RV66, Y06
Flower: RV00, RV55, Y06

 

Lawn Fawn Toucan Do It


After coloring all of the images and using my ScanNCut to cut those out, I set them aside to work on the background. Using Distress Oxide spray in Mermaid Lagoon and Dylusions Ink Spray in London Blue, I sprayed a panel of watercolor paper for the background and then began working on the background elements.

I die cut the Stitched Mountains using kraft cardstock and added a little Walnut Stain Distress Oxide ink for dimension. Next, I die-cut green cardstock and added Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide ink to the bottom edge.

Once all of the elements had time to dry or set, I used glue dots or liquid adhesive to create my little scene.

I was inspired by the current LawnFawnatics Challenge to create this card featuring my dream getaway destination to the mountains.

Newton's Nook Designs Winston Takes Flight


Hi crafty friends! I have a fun one-layer scene card to share with you featuring Newton’s Nook Designs’ Winston Takes Flight.

I created a simple one-layer card by stamping out the images, which luckily did not overlap. Next, I created masks and ink blended the background with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink in the center and Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink around the edges. I splattered the background with white paint and colored the images with my Copic Markers.

Copic Color Combinations

Bear: E44, E43, E42, E41
Plane: R39, R29, R24, C5, C3, C1
Yellow: Y38, Y06
Black: W5, W7
Mountains: E79, E77, E74, E71
White: C1, C0, White Gel Pen

When my card panel was complete, I used a stitched rectangle die to die cut the panel to A2 size. For the sentiment, I used Versafine Onyx Black ink and set it with black embossing powder.

I am so excited about this challenge and I hope you like my take on a one-layer challenge. Thank you so much for stopping by; until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

Lawn Fawn Ladybug and Leaf plus Sunrise Backdrop | Die-cut Card

Lawn Fawn Ladybug and Leaf

 

Hey crafty friends, it’s my first week of summer vacation, and what better way to celebrate than playing in my craft room. I have a fun card to share with you, inspired by the current Lawnfawnatics Challenge. The theme for this challenge is to use all dies.

My card features several dies by Lawn Fawn to create this very summery card. I began by creating the background first. I ink blended the panel with Wild Honey in the center of the panel at the bottom, then Squeezed Lemonade across the rest of the panel. I worked back and forth between the two shades to create a seamless blend. Next, I added paint splatters for texture and set the panel aside to dry.

 

Lawn Fawn Ladybug and Leaf

 

Once the background was dry, I used the Sunrise Backdrop in landscape format to die cut the ink blended panel. I die-cut all the pieces from Ladybug and Leaf die set from colored cardstock and pieced together the elements.

The last element I die cut was the Scripty Hugs die for the sentiment. I attached all the die-cut pieces onto the background using foam adhesive or glue dots. To finish, I used a white gel pen to add highlights to the different elements on my card.

I hope you like my card and as always, thank you so much for stopping by; until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

When my background was done, I added the sentiment, clouds, palm tree, and the image with foam adhesive or glue dots to finish off my card. I hope you like my card and as always, thank you so much for stopping by; until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

Happy May, crafty friends! It’s the first Sunday of the month and that means a new challenge on the Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge Blog. This month, team A is sponsored by Joy Clair Designs. The design team was given “Cup of Joy Digital Set” to work with for this challenge.

I printed the image onto smooth white cardstock and created a mask by printing the image again onto a piece of copy paper. Once I had the mask in place, I ink blended the background using Mustard Seed Distress Oxide ink and Wild Honey Distress Oxide at the edges. For texture, I created white and yellow splatters and then colored the image with Copic Markers.

Gerda Steiner Happy Hoppy Bunny

Hey crafty friends! And Happy Easter to all those that celebrate. In my family, we celebrate Easter by attending church and enjoying family time in the afternoon. My children are a little past the Egg Hunt stage (which I’m thankful for) but not too old for an Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt!

My card today is not religious in nature but instead features the Easter Bunny. I began the card by stamping the images onto smooth cardstock and using my Copic Markers to color all images in the following color combinations.

Copic Marker Combination

Bunny: E57, E55, E53, E51, R20
Balloon: Y00, Y13, Y15, Y17
Flowers: YG17, YG01, Y19, RV00, RV17, RV52

I used a panel of pink cardstock and heat embossed the polka dot background stamp by MFT Stamps. I wanted to add some dimension to the edges by inking with Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide ink.

Next, I created the central scene by die-cutting a piece of teal cardstock. I inked the panel with Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide ink and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink at the outer edges. Then, I added the grassy hill die-cut from green cardstock and inked with Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide ink.

After the background was complete, I stamped the sentiment and added the images using glue dots or liquid adhesive to finish my card.

I love to integrate bright backgrounds and for this card, I created a sunny cloudy sky using Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide ink. For the grassy hill, I simply die-cut a piece of white cardstock and ink blended the bottom portion with Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn at the top. I splattered both panels with white paint for texture.

Once the panels were dry, I used a stitched slimline rectangle die to die cut the entire panel. Then, I stamped the sentiment with VersaFine Black Onyx ink. To finish the card, I added all of the images using glue dots or liquid adhesive.

Gerda Steiner Designs Hello Friend Tortoise | Colored with Copic Markers

Gerda Steiner Hello Friend Tortoise

 

Hey crafty friends! It’s almost the weekend, and I’m not as excited as I usually would be. For me, it means the end of Spring Break and a return back to school. Although I love being a preschool teacher, I am looking forward to these long breaks.

I enjoy making “just because” cards and love to have as many as I can in my stash for no particular reason other than sending a handmade card to my family and friends.

For this card, I used the Hello Friend Tortoise stamp set by Gerda Steiner Designs. I began the card by stamping the image onto smooth cardstock and using my Copic Markers to color all images in the following color combinations.

Copic Marker Combination

Green: YG67, G24, G21, G20
Dark Shell: E49, E47, E44
Light Shell: E44, E43, E41
Butterflies: Y117, Y15, Y11, W7, W5, W3

 

Gerda Steiner Hello Friend Tortoise

 

After coloring all of the images and using my ScanNCut to cut those out, I set them aside to work on the background. Using Distress Oxide ink in Dried Marigold, I inked up the bottom portion of a piece of heavy-weight smooth cardstock. Next, I added Kitsch Flamingo Distress Oxide ink and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide ink just at the edges. I trimmed the background panel using a stitched rectangle die and set it aside to work on the grassy hills.

With Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide ink, I ink blended a panel then used the Stitched Hillside Borders die by Lawn Fawn. For texture, I splattered the panels with diluted white acrylic paint and allowed them to dry. I stamped the sentiment in the top left corner, adhered the images with liquid adhesive and glue dots, and added a frame to complete this card.
