Zesty Lemon Die & Pink Fresh Studio Hot Foil Sentiment

I had cut a few extra pieces from my first Zesty Lemon card, so I thought I would create this card based on a card Chari Moss created for Lawn Fawn’s release of the set recently.

I didn’t have the dies to create the stripes so I used what I had in my stash. The Pink Fresh sentiment in gold hot foiled on white card stock gave it a classic look that could be given to anyone (even our favourite guy). Using the same buttercup yellow glitter paper I created just the slightest drop shadow for the hot fouled sentiment that gave it that extra subtle pop.

Well hello Sunshine!! Summer is here and I just could not wait to dig into the Lawn Fawn Zesty Lemon die set!

So easy to use, just a two shades of card stock for each fruit, adding a bit of super easy inking with daubers gives each piece so much more dimension and fun. And of course I had to add glitter!! So a hint of buttercup yellow glitter paper behind Lawn fawn’s new Gotta Have Gingham pattern paper was just what the card needed to add that final touch.

LawnFawnatics Inaugural  Challenge: Happy Birthday

Everyone who knows me, knows my absolute favorite stamp company is, and has been for many many years: Lawn Fawn.  When I saw that Lawn Fawn had created a new challenge blog, called Lawn Fawnatics, I knew I had to play along! Their first challenge theme is: Birthday.  Since it coincided with their 7 year birthday it was a perfect match.

Here is my card I made – all supplies I used can be found at the end of post.

Lawn Fawn Full Ink Pad Collection Review & Swatches

It’s always a happy day in my house when I get new orders, especially when it’s new LAWN FAWN! This recent release included some new colors to Lawn Fawn’s dye ink pad family – there are now 27 colors in the collection, with a few more expected to be added throughout this year. (YAY!)

 

I have created swatches of all of the colors, and have shown each of the new colors in a group with similar inks from previous releases so you can see how they coordinate together.  In this new collection release, Lawn Fawn added:

  • Butter Dye Ink
    • A gorgeous pale yellow, this butter ink color really is going to be a go to for me! Use for creating shadows or even highlights, this ink can really showcase full stamped images like the veggies in the new Rooting For You stamp set, or something as classic as stamping little stars to create you own background.
  • Manatee
    • This is a warm grey – meaning, a grey with brown tones.  This would be great for stamping some critters, like the skunk from Into The Woods, or the Narwhal from Critters From The Arctic.
  • Carrot
    • A lovely vibrant orange-yellow, this would be great for stamping just about anything! It reminds me of sunshine 🙂
  • Jalapeno
    • Crisp, bright true green this would be great for foliage, trees and even sentiments.
  • Merman
    • Seriously, just about the BEST ‘pool’ or aqua ink color on the market! Bright true turquoise, this color is my new favorite aqua pool ink pad color.

Here are my swatches – the full collection, and then each of the new colors with their color families.

Pink Cupcake Shaker Card for Share Handmade Kindness Week #4: Strangers

It’s week four of the Share Handmade Kindness Challenge hosted by Jennifer Mcguire. This week’s recipient: strangers. I knew that this would be the perfect opportunity to create a card for Jennifer’s card shower.

Share Handmade Kindness Cupcake Shaker Card Hero Arts Wendie Bee Stamp Right Up

Share Handmade Kindness Cupcake Shaker Card Hero Arts Wendie Bee Stamp Right Up

I created this shaker card using the Hero Arts stamp created in partnership with Jennifer for the Share Handmade Kindness initiative.  Stamping with Stayzon never works well for me – thank goodness for my Misti!! I had to double stamp this for the sentiment to show as boldly as I wanted so my Misti was the shining star for this project for sure 🙂

The sequins & confetti were from Simon Says Stamp (moonshine sequins, Pretty Pink Posh gold confetti) – and the tiny hear confetti’s are from a Martha Steward pack; although I have found a great indie shop that has a TON of fun confetti’s – they are literally called Ton, you can check them out here

The glittered cupcake was from my post here – since Emily’s favorite color was (dark) pink, I knew this would be the perfect project to use it on!  I was hoping to include one of my handcrafted matching scented cupcake necklace; I have emailed Jennifer to ensure that is ok first though.

I hope she likes it! I will be including a personal message for her, and even some Canadian flag stickers in the envelope for her too that she can share with her little sister 🙂

That’s all for this project – thanks for stopping by & see you next time!

Share Handmade Kindness Challenge #1 ~ Lawn Fawn Making Frosty Friends No Bulk Shaker Card

Hi Everyone,

I normally don’t get into many challenges, but this one had me at kindness…  Jennifer McGuire is hosting a ‘Share Handmade Kindness‘ challenge.  For the whole month of November there will be challenges to share the art of creating with someone – each week will be different.  This first week, will be share something with a friend or family member.  Jennifer wanted to do something to share kindness, and has teamed up with Hero Arts creating two exclusive stamps for a charity with a cause I really believe in: anti-bullying. What I love even more is that a significant portion (25%) of the proceeds will be going to the charity!

You can get both the photopolymer set on the left, and the single wood mount stamp from Simon Says Stamp or Hero Arts. I got mine today 💕

My card was made for my friend Carmen, who is gentle, kind, understanding and always patient with me even on my worst days.  She is a great friend and I really wanted to let her know that with this card ❤

Carmen lives in a different province than I do, so I wanted to make a card that I knew would survive mailing.  My new We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool just arrived the night before I made this.  I ordered it explicitly for the use of making no-bulk shaker cards and confetti pockets , so I couldn’t wait to try it out!

To make the window, I die cut the rectangle using Lawn Fawn’s large stitched rectangle dies.  Then, using an Avery Elle stamp storage pocket, I fastened the die to the pocket with washi tape, and ran the fuse tool over three of the four sides along the inside of the die – using it as a guide.  Leaving the top open, I filled it with iridescent confetti large glitter and added a few snowflake sequins,then fused the final top side of the inner part of the die.  (You can see an example of how this is done in one of Jennifer’s YouTube videos.)

The snowmen buddies were stamped in memento tuxedo black and die cut with the coordinating dies. Using my Spectrum Noir markers, the scarf was colored using DR1, DR6, DR7; the earmuffs were LV3 & LV2 with a light touch of the colorless blender to blend a little more.  OR1 & OR2 were used on the carrot noses, and IB1 was run along the outline of the snowmen to make them look icy cold 🙂

Because the stamp pocket is plastic / acetate, I knew only Stayzon white would work – I stamped the sentiment, then realized that it needed a little something more, so added a few stamped snowflakes for added interest.

So that I had somehwere to write a note, I added a 4 x5.25″ top folding note card inside.  The white sentiment got kind of lost when I did that, so I blended some Broken China distress ink fading to white along the top of the inner note card to highlight the sentiment when the card was closed.

This is entry for the #sharehandmadekindness initative.  I love Jennifer’s videos, she is a beautiful artist, and an even lovelier person.  This challenge is something that really means a lot to me, and I hope you will join me, Jennifer and thousands of other crafters & artists in turning our love of creating into the kindness of giving!

Happy Birthday Balloons with Mama Elephant Make A Wish & Lawn Fawn Ink Pads

Hi Stampers!

Today’s project is a super bright & festive Happy Birthday card.  I am lucky enough to be able to make cards for my fellow workmates at my day job – this was one that I created.

The first try I had at this card the balloons didn’t turn out very well…. but I had already stamped & embossed the sentiment & I really didn’t want to have to do it again – so I had the idea to fussy cut the image out & I am actually quite pleased with how it turned out!  Using the Mama Elephant sentiment from Make A Wish I gold embossed it, then stamped the stars in gold Encore ink.  The balloons were stamped using Lawn Fawn inks: Peacock, Fake Tan, Sunflower and Sugar Plum.  I had drew in the strings and used a white gel pen to add the shine accents.

Hope you like my project – don’t forget comments are welcome & very appreciated!

Lawn Fawn Ready Set Snow Shaker Mini Card

I made a Christmas shaker card!  I have tried to make shaker cards before, and have only had a few successes – but the Ready Set Snow shaker add on from Lawn Fawn took all the guess work out of the construction of the shaker card & all I needed to do was stamp, color and assemble.  When I first got this add on die set I was, admittedly betwixt as to how it actually worked.. But once I saw the How To video it all came together.

This card is case’d from the video – I always try and make original card designs, but I tried twice to make a background I loved, and they both turned out, well…. meh. It was getting late & I really wanted to finish the project so I created this cute little guy.  I stamped & colored the penguin and his Santa hat from the Toboggan Together stamp set, then die cut him out.  I used the snowy sky background die from the Ready Set Snow Shaker Add on dies, then blended some Broken China & Tumbled Glass Tim Holtz distress inks along the top into the middle to give the piece some added dimension.

When it came time to assemble my card, I chose to use two layers of standard fun foam to make sure there was ample room for the sequins and seed beads to move around.  I found that the cupped sequins I had needed a little more than one layer.

 

Now that I have had time to play with this, I am already thinking of the many other things I can create with this set!
