Gnome and Flower

August 1, 2017

I just bought the Lawn Fawn Mini Ink Cubes and Fab Flowers stamp set. My kiddos and I had so much fun playing with color combos the day the package arrived. Here is a card my daughter designed.

Details

Size:  Vertical top fold A2 card

Extra Details: We began by stamping the gnome. My daughter colored him with colored pencils. I fussy cut him out for her.

Then we played with the Fab Flowers stamp set. We stamped lots and lots of flowers on a panel of white card stock. I fussy cut all of the pieces out, leaving a small white border on everything. My daughter picked two flowers to layer up. I used a dimensional glue dot between the flowers. We added some leaves and a stem to the flower.

We arranged the gnome and flower on a light pink card base. We used glue dots to adhere everything to the card base. Lastly, I added a sentiment and the card was done.

Stamps Used: Lawn Fawn’s Fab Flowers, Tiny Tag Saying, and Gnome Sweet Gnome

Ink: Versa Fine

Ranger Archival Ink in Deep Purple

Distress Oxide Ink in Cracked Pistachio

Lawn Fawn Inks in Mermaid and Peacock

I was browsing through the Lawn Fawn Flickr page the other day and saw this card:

It was so awesome that I knew I wanted to try it also. This is my take on it.

Size:  Vertical side fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I began with a panel of white card stock. I dry embossed Quinn’s Capital ABCs dies into the panel. It is hard to see but adds some nice texture in real life.

I die cut the letters from some more white card stock, I used Lawn Fawn Inks in Plastic Flamingo and Freshly Cut Grass to sponge the color on the letters. I drew in the seeds with a black Sharpie.

I glued the letters right over the dry embossed letters. The panel still felt a bit bare, so I added a row of ants at the bottom.

I adhered the panel to a bright pink card base and the card was complete.

Jaws Pop Up

I love all of the Lawn Fawn ocean themed stamp sets. I just bought the Duh-nuh set and couldn’t wait to use it. I choose to go with very soft colors on this card. I love the effect.

Details

Size:  Horizontal top fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I began by creating a white card base. I stamped the fin and the sentiment on the card front with grey ink. I masked off the fin using Post-It tape and ink blended some Tumbled Glass Distress ink over the top. I didn’t worry about getting it smooth, because I added some flicks of water to distress the ink. I used Hickory Smoke Distress Ink to color in the fin.

I stamped the shark on a scrap of water color paper in the same grey ink. I used the same Distress Inks to water color that image in.  Once dry, I fussy cut the shark out leaving a small white border.

I lined my white card base with light blue card stock. I added some bubbles using the Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. Using the same card stock, I die cut a Stitched Hillside pop up and adhered it to the inside of the card base. I adhered my shark to one of the hillsides.

I stamped my inside sentiment in the same grey ink and the card was finished.

Lovable Legends Peek A Boo

August 1, 2017

I watched Lawn Fawn’s demo video for their new Shadow Box Card and had an idea. I turned my Scalloped Box Card Pop Up into a pop up and box card.

Card when Flat

Details

Size:  Pop Up Box card that fits in an A2 envelope

Extra Details:  I began by die cutting the pop card dies out of light blue card stock. I used one of the rectangle dies to cut a window in the bottom portion of my card. I also trimmed the fold down panel off the same section. Using some darker blue and brown card stock I cut several inside brace pieces. I used a variety of border dies to create the edges of the brace pieces.

Then, I stamped and colored all of my images. I used Crayola Fine Line markers and a water brush to add color to most of my images. I used dies to cut out a few of the images and fussy cut the rest. I left a small white border while fussy cutting to match the die cut pieces.

I used glue dots and liquid adhesive to adhere the box card and all of the images together.

Lastly I added some panels with the sentiments and extra decorations to finish the card.

Stamps Used: Lawn Fawn’s Loveable Legends, Mermaid for You, Fintastic Friends, and Dad + Me

Dies Used: Scalloped Box Card Pop Up, Puffy Cloud Borders, Simple Stitched Hill Side borders, Stitched Hill Side Borders, and Lovable Legends dies
