Size:  Vertical side fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I started by die cutting one of the patterned papers with a large cross stitched rectangle die. I adhered this to a white card base. For the sentiment, I used one of the cut apart panels. I matted the cut apart on a small rectangle of patterned paper with foam tape to help it stand out. I added a small strip of patterned paper for added interest and the card was finished.

Details

Size:  Horizontal top fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I began this card by cutting the kraft card stock included in the kit into four 4.25 by 5.5 inch panels. I decided to create the four panels and not card bases so that I could get more use from the cardstock in the kit.

I took one panel and scored it every ¾ of an inch. I adhered strips of the patterned paper in-between the score line.

I used one of the cut aparts form the patterned paper pack for the sentiment. I matted it on another piece of patterned paper and adhered it with some foam tape.

I adhered the kraft panel to a white card base and the card was complete.

Jar of Conversation Hearts

January 14, 2018

These are the prototypes for the Valentines I want to make for my class. I have 30 to make in total so I have order the die to make the cutting much easier.

26239266_10209310394431560_8303607342848383067_n

Details

Extra Details: I began these cards by folding a 5 inch strip of water color paper in half. I stamped the jar outline in Lawn Fawn’s Moonstone ink. I added the conversations hearts with Versa Fine ink and the saying in Hero Arts Red Royal ink. I used some more Lawn Fawn ink as water colors to add the colors to the heart.  On a separate piece of water color paper, I stamped the lids in Lawn Fawn Hippo ink. I used the same ink to water color in the lids.

Once everything was dry, I fussy cut the images out leaving a small white border. I made sure to leave the fold intact so the card would open. I used a liquid glue to adhere the lids to the card bases.

Using some light pink card stock, I die cut the heart shaped tiny tag. I stamped the sentiment in the same Red Royal ink. I used some red and white twine from my stash to tie the tag to my card.
I think these are so cute and they weren’t too time consuming to make. I can’t wait for my students to see them.

Octopus Circle Card

February 14, 2017

I had fun making a Valentine card today.

32845727085_2630fc5f34_o

Details

Size: Vertical top fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I started with a 4.25 x 5.5 panel of white card stock. I stamped all of the images in circular pattern. I did not measure anything or really plan anything out, so of course I stamped the octopus not in the center of the panel. I used colored pencils and glitter gel pens to add color to all the images.

To compensate for my stamping, I die cut the panel and adhered it to a pink card base. I added the sentiment and the card was done.

Stamps Used: Lawn Fawn’s Ocotpi My Heart, Fintastic Friends, and Mermaid for Each Other

The inside

Details

Size:  Vertical top fold A2 card

Extra Details: I started with a card base made from water color paper. Using a mini round ink blending tool, I ink blending three Distress Inks on the card front. I used Candied Apple, Picked Raspberry, and Spun Sugar. I started with the darkest color and the top and tried to fade out to white at the bottom. I let the ink dry overnight.

Using Versa Mark Ink, I stamped and clear embossed a heart pattern on the ink blended card front. I used the small heart stamps from Lawn Fawn’s Science of Love Stamp set. After I had melted the embossing powder, I place a damp paper towel over the whole card front. I love the effect that the damp paper towel created.

While the card base dried again, I die cut a puffy cloud border from a scrap of water color paper. I stamped the sentiment and bird images on the cloud. I used the same Distress Inks to water color the bird images.

I added the rest of the sentiment to the inside of the card. Lastly, I adhered the cloud border to the card front once everything was dry.

Octopi Zentangle

February 12, 2017

Sandy Allnock created a card using Lawn Fawn’s Octopi My Heart. She created a beautiful Zentangle type of background. Once I watched her video, I knew I had to try it. Here is my take on her idea.

Card Front

32804770766_e1ac141d87_o

Inside of the card

Details

Size:  Vertical top fold A2 card

Extra Details: I started with a panel of white card stock. I stamped as many octopi as I could fit on the panel. Then, I added the large heart in the spaces between the octopi. I filled in the remaining areas with the three bubbles, small heart and small bubble. I loved the way the background turned out, but I thought it needed a little color. I used some glitter pink gel pen to outline the large hearts. It was the perfect touch.

Next, I created a pink card base. I tried to match the cardstock to the glitter gel pen color. Using a stitched rectangle die, I cut my stamped panel at an angle. I also cut some black card stock using the same die. I layered the black card stock behind the stamped piece, offsetting them a bit. I adhered both to the card front. Then, I stamped the sentiment.

I couldn’t bear to waste the extra stamped background, so I added it to the inside of the card. I added a sentiment to the inside and the card was done.
