It took some time to finish coloring in this scene, but I am so happy with the outcome and it was definitely worth the time.

To finish this card, I stamped out a sentiment onto a piece of black cardstock, white heat embossed the sentiment and adhered it using foam tape to the bottom left corner.

Lawn Fawn Summer Scene | Birthday Stamps | Copic Coloring

Hello everyone, I’m sharing a fun summer scene card featuring a ton of Lawn Fawn stamps and dies. This card was inspired by
the current LawnFawnatics Challenge to create a scene card.

Lawn Fawn Party Kangaroo

I began the card by die cutting several Lawn Fawn backdrops and ink blending them that I will incorporate in my scene. I
used Wild Honey and Mustard Seed Distress Oxide ink on the Sunrise Backdrop, Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Ink on the
Stitched Cloud Backdrop, Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide ink on the Simple Stitched Hillside Borders
and finally, I colored the tree from the Leafy Tree Backdrop using Copic Markers.

Lawn Fawn Party Koala

While I had the markers out, I colored the Party Kangaroo and Party Koala after stamping them out using Memento Tuxedo
ink onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 80lb. cardstock.

Copic Color Combination

Koala: W7, W5, W3, W1, W0, Blender, R22, R20
Kangaroo: E44, E43, E42, E41, R22, R20
Tree: E79, E74, E44, E43
Leaves: YG01, YG07
Hats: R85, R81, V17, BG49

Lawn Fawn Party Kangaroo

After coloring and die cutting the images, it was time to arrange my little scene. I adhered the Sunrise die-cut to the front of
the cloud backdrop with liquid adhesive. I added the hillside border and arranged the tree, the adorable Kangaroo and Koala,
and a sentiment strip that I white heat embossed onto a piece of black cardstock.

I have a video tutorial of this card where I share how I created this card and how I colored the images with Copic Markers.

Spotlight Ink-Blended Die-cutting | Two-For-One Cards | MFT Mermazing

Hi crafty friends! Today I’m sharing a fun project featuring spotlight ink blended die-cutting that results in two cards for one! I
created the two cards using MFT Mermaid Tail Background and Mermazing Stamp sets.

MFT Mermazing

To begin, I stamped the background stamp onto a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock using Versamark ink and heat embossed
one background with white embossing powder and black embossing powder on the other panel. I reached for my Misti to help
me stamp the background in the same spot on both of my panels.

MFT-Mermazing

MFT Background

Next, I ink blended the white embossed background using Wilted Violet, Shaded Lilac, Broken China, and Cracked Pistachio
Distress Ink and left the black embossed panel plain.

MFT Background

In order to achieve the spotlight of the stamped background, I arranged both of the panels one on top of the other and die cut a
heart out of the center of both panels. While the second panel did not cut all the way through, by placing it under the panel
previously, the die left an indentation to place the die and cut it through.

Copic Markers Combination

Mermaid Tail: V09, V06, V04, V01, V000
Hair: YR15, YR18, R29, R59, E47
Dark Turtle: E30, E23, E25, E29, G28, YG17, YG13, YG01
Mermaid tail: BG49, BG45, BG53
Hair: E50, E53, E55, E57
Light Turtle: E40, E42, E43, E40, G28, YG17, YG13, YG00
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R30, R20

MFT-Mermazing

After coloring and die cutting the images, I added the background panels to a white card base and added the opposite heart die
cut with dimension to highlight the spotlight die-cut. I was able to create two cards at once by using one
background stamp and one die-cut.

I love how the ink blended background perfectly lines up with the black embossed one. I added the stamped sentiment stirps
and added the images to the heart die-cuts and I have two very stunning cards with the effort of one.

Picket Fence Love of Coffee | Coffee Lovers Blog Hop | Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers

Good morning everyone, it’s the biggest coffee themed blog hop over on Coffee Lover’s Blog and I’m sharing another coffee
inspired card featuring a background coffee stamp by Picket Fence.

Picket Fence Love of Coffee

Using my Misti, I stamped out the large background stamp onto a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock using a tucked away,
way in the back of my ink drawer an old pigment ink that was in the perfect shade of brown. I added clear embossing powder
and heat set it with my heating tool and reached for my Zig Markers to color in the images. Since these are tiny images, I used
a single shade on each image and blended it out using a water brush pen.

Zig Marker Color Combination

031 Cobalt Blue
041 Light Green
021 Light Carmine
025 Pink
027 Dark Pink
230 Pale Rose
082 Purple
072 Beige

Picket Fence Love of Coffee

Once the background panel was completely dry, I used a large stitched rectangle die to cut it down to an A2 sized panel and
finished the card by white heat embossing the sentiment stirp then popping it up on foam squares and adding it across
the center of my panel.

Picket Fence Love of Coffee

This was an easy-peasy card to make that is full of vibrant color and can be quickly mass-produced if you need to.

I also ink blended a piece of smooth cardstock with Mowed Lawn Distress ink and added Nuvo Glimmer Paste in Moonstone
over a Heffy Doodle Fancy Foliage Stencil.

enamel dots to finish this card.

The “You’re Out of This World” card features Newton’s Nook Cosmic Newton images combined with a Mama Elephant Star Grid
Window Creative Cuts Die, in a rainbow-colored background with Newton floating on by.

To begin this card, I die cut the Star Grid Window from Bristol smooth cardstock and used several shades of Distress Ink to ink
blended the stars in a rainbow pattern. To create some contrast, I die cut the same Star Grid from black cardstock and adhered
it to the rainbow background with foam tape.

Lawn Fawn Beep Boop Birthday Goodie Bag

Hi crafty friends, I’m sharing a birthday goodie bag I created for any upcoming birthday that might be rolling in through the
summer and replenish my stash of birthday goodies.

Lawn Fawn Beep Boop Birthday and Goodie Bag Die

To create this goodie bag, I had to be a little creative since I did not have a 12 x 12 piece of cardstock I wanted to use. I die cut a
piece of Neenah Solar White 100lb. cardstock using the Goodie Bag die by Lawn Fawn, then I placed my die over the top of a 6 x 6
sheet of patterned paper and die-cut only the front of the panel. I trimmed the Really Rainbow pattern paper to fit over the goodie
bag and adhered it with liquid adhesive.

Lawn Fawn Beep Boop Birthday and Goodie Bag Die

For the images, I used a Beep Boop Birthday, which is retired (sadly) and colored in the images using Copic Markers then cut
them out using my ScanNCut.

Copic Markers Combination

Robots: C7, C5, C3, C1, C0, C00, R22
Pink: R85, R81, RV00
Teal: BG53, BG49
Yellow: Y17

Lawn Fawn Beep Boop Birthday and Goodie Bag Die

Using one of the green pattern papers from the Really Rainbow 6 x 6 paper pad, I die cut two green hills using the Simple Stitched
Hillside Borders Die, then stamped the birthday sentiment on one of the hills while the other sentiment was stamped onto a
piece of black cardstock and white heat embossed.

I added all of the elements onto the bag, using either foam tape or liquid adhesive to finish these bags. I plan to create several bags to
have on hand for any kids’ birthday parties.

Lawn Fawn Beep Boop Birthday

This goodie bag was inspired by the current LawnFawnatics Challenge to create anything but a card, be sure to head over to the LawnFawnatics blog to check out what the design team created for this challenge.

Lemon Shortbread Rainy Days Girl with Umbrella | Lil Patch of Crafty Friends | Design Team Project

Hi everyone and welcome to a new challenge on the Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge Blog. Our exclusive sponsor for this
month is Lemon Shortbread Digi Stamps and Pages with their unique and beautiful collection of digi stamps. For my card today,
I created a monochromatic with one colored element card featuring Rainy Days Girl with Umbrella.

Lemon Shortbread Rainy Days Girl with Umbrella

I was very inspired to create this card based on a painting I saw somewhere in my early teen life. I tried to search for the original
painting and find the painter’s name but all I found was Parisian images in black and white with red umbrella paintings.

To start this card, I printed the digital image at 4 ¼ by 5 ½ onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 80lb. cardstock. I colored the
image in warm grays with a bold and bright red umbrella.

Lemon Shortbread Rainy Days Girl with Umbrella

Copic Color Combination

Skin: W4, W3, W1, W0
Hair: W9, W7, W5, W3
Coat: W9, W7, W5, W3

Boots: W9, W7, W5, W3
Umbrella: R29, R27, R24, R22, R21
Background: W1, W0
Puddles: W5, W3, W1, W0

For the background, I die cut the panel with an A2 sized stitched rectangle die and finished coloring in the background by adding
dots across the background to create some texture.

To finish this card, I stamped out the sentiment with Versamark ink and white heat embossed it onto a piece of black cardstock.
I trimmed the sentiment strip and adhered it using foam tape to the bottom left corner.
