Thank You Bears

January 4, 2019

January is Thank You card month at my house. I thought I had enough Thank You cards, but I was wrong. I drew inspiration from the current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge.

Size:  Top side fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I started with a panel of white card stock. I used Forget Me Not Lawn Fawn Ink and an ink blender brush to blend on the sky.

I stamped the clouds using Let’s Bokeh stamp set. I used Ballet Slippers, Butter, Moonstone, and Manatee ink. I cut out the clouds using fine tip scissors.

I colored the bears in Primsa Color pencils and cut them out using the coordinating dies.  I also cut out a stitched tree border and a hill side border. I layered the clouds and the tree border flat to the card panel. I popped up the hillside border and bears.

Lastly, I added the sentiment in Moonstone ink.

I am still receiving and loving the Simon Says Stamp Monthly Card Kits. I find that the kits are a convenient way to get a variety of styles of stamps and patterned paper. It is also an easy way for me to try out some new products and techniques.

This card was made with the Simon Says Stamp January 2019 Card Kit. I love the die that was included in the kit and can’t wait to use it on more projects.

Size:  Vertical side fold A2 card

Extra Details: I began this card by die cutting two of the ice skater from watercolor paper. I used my Crayola Fine Line markers to add color to the ice skaters. I adhered some thread to the back of one of the skaters and adhered it to the other skater to create a spinner feature.

In my scrap basket, I found a rectangle of blue water color left over from some other project that I die cut with a stitched circle die. I cut the same circle into the front of my card base. I layered the thread between the panel and the card with some strong adhesive.

Lastly, I added a sentiment with white embossing powder.

I love this card! It is so much fun to watch the skater spin around and around.

Stamps Used: Simon Says Stamp’s Snow Much

Dies Used: Simon Says Stamp’s Stitched Circles, and Twirling Ice Skater

Embossing Powder: Simon Says Stamp’s Fine Detail White

Ink: VersaMark

Poppin’ Up to Say Thanks Pull Tab

After making 36 of the simple thank you card design I had a few toasters and pop tarts left, so I made a few interactive cards with the same basic design.

Size:  Vertical side fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I die cut a small rectangle from some green patterned paper and adhered it to a white card base. From black cardstock, I die cut the word thanks and then adhered it the green pattern paper.

I stamped the toaster and pop tarts on some water color paper. I used my Crayola Fine Line markers to water color the images. The coordinating dies made cutting out the images super easy. I added some sprinkles to the pop tarts for added color.

I also die cut the interactive pieces to make the pull tab slider. Following the directions on Lawn Fawn’s youTube channel I created a pull tab card.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment on some watercolor paper. I used a banner die to cut out the sentiment. I used the same marker that I used on the toaster to add some color to the banner. I adhered the banner to the card.

In the end, I made 4 of these cards to be sent to the very special people in my children’s life.

Poppin’ Up to Say Thanks

It has been far too long since I have blogged. My New Year’s Resolution this year is to get back to blogging more often. I have a whole ton of cards waiting to be added to the blog and so many ideas for new cards.

This card design is the one I used for my thank you cards this year. I got the Lawn Fawn Let’s Toast set for Christmas and couldn’t wait to play with it.

Size:  Vertical side fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I die cut a small rectangle from some green patterned paper and adhered it to a white card base. From black cardstock, I die cut the word thanks and then adhered it to the card base also.

I stamped the toaster and pop tarts on some water color paper. I used my Crayola Fine Line markers to water color the images. The coordinating dies made cutting out the images super easy. I added some sprinkles to the pop tarts for added color. Then, I layered the pop tarts and toaster together. I used foam tape to give the images some dimension on the card front.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment on some watercolor paper. I used a banner die to cut out the sentiment. I used the same marker that I used on the toaster to add some color to the banner. I adhered the banner to the card.

In the end, I made 36 of these cards.
