For my card, I used a simple layout with some designer paper and used the adorable Lawn Fawn stamp set MeowYou Doin'along with the coordinating Meow You Doin' Lawn Cuts. I started out by stamping my images from the set and coloring them with Copic markers, then die cut them out and adhered the sleeping kitty to the cat bed and glued on the toy mouse. Next I die cut a white cardstock circle and a melon berry mat. I used the Stitched Hillside Lawn Cuts with some yellow cardstock and adhered that to the bottom of my circle and adhered my images with foam tape then stamped the little Zzzz's above the cats head. I stamped my sentiment along the bottom of my card and added my panels of designer paper with a scallop edge along the bottom panel. I added the circle with my cat to the front of my card using foam tape and tied on some black & white bakers twine.
Hello and Happy Wednesday! It's time for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge! We've got some fun colors to create with that are perfect for this time of year.
The colors for this week's challenge are green, black and metallic gold but since I only had scraps of metallic gold, I ended up using yellow gold colored cardstock which is completely ok so please don't feel that you can't play along if you don't have the exact colors.
I used a few of my Lawn Fawn stamp sets to create a St. Patricks Day card for someone special. I started out by stamping the cute raccoon, hat and four leaf clover from the Holiday Party Animalstamp set then colored them using Copic markers and die cut them out using the Holiday Party Animal Lawn Cuts. I also stamped two of the little birds from the Chit Chat stamp set, colored them with Copies and die cut them out using the Chit Chat Lawn Cuts. Next I die cut a rectangle for my scene using a MFT Inside & Out Stitched Rectangledie and blended on some tumbled glass distress ink along the top. I used some new leaf cardstock and the Lawn Fawn Stitched HillsideBorders Lawn Cutsand attached that to my die cut rectangle. Then I used the Lawn Fawn Happy, Happy, Happystamp set and stamped the Happy sentiment on a piece of scrap white cardstock. I stamped it first in daffodil delight ink and just the bottom in summer sunrise ink and then die cut it out using the Happy, Happy, Happy Lawn Cuts along with an extra die cut happy which I glued together. I placed the die cut Happy where I wanted it to be but didn't glue it down until after I stamped the rest of my sentiment in black ink. I added the raccoon to my scene using foam tape, glued on my Happy and the two little birds and using more foam tape I added the rectangle to my card. For my card base, I used a piece of Doodlebug Designs green gingham paper with a strip of summer sun cardstock along the bottom.
For my card, I used the My Favorite Things stamp set Pretty Posies with the Pretty Posies Die-namics to make a card for a friend of mine. I used the My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge from last week for my layout and kept my card fairly clean and simple. On my white card base, I added a strip of brocade blue cardstock toward the bottom, then I added a white die cut Single Stitched Line Rectangleframe. Next I stamped my flowers using brocade blue ink and new leaf ink, then die cut them out and adhered them to my card. After that I die cut three hellos from white cardstock using the Hello There Die-namicsand glued them all together and added them to my card along with my friend sentiment which was stamped from the Label Maker Sentiment set. As a finishing touch I added some silver gems and of course you can't have a naked envelope:)
I'm participating in this month's Daily Marker 30 Day Color Challenge over on Instagram and the other day I colored a sheet of these adorable cat images thinking I would make a small batch of birthday cards for my stash. All of the cat and other images from the Meow You Doin' set that I used were colored with Copic markers and were adhered to the cards with foam tape. To create my scenes, I die cut a square of white cardstock and blended on some tumbled glass distress ink for the sky and used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders Lawn Cutsfor the hill. Next I stamped my Happy sentiment and die cut that image plus 3 more so that I could glue them all together for more dimension. After that I die cut one of the new Fancy Folded Bannersand stamped the Purrthday (only half of the sentiment on this stamp) and supported the center with two strips of foam tape.
These cards were so fun to create! Each a little different than the other but still similar. I added a little something different in the corner of each card, either a paw print, a mouse or a heart, all from the set and tied on some black and white bakers twine.
The square stitched frame and scallop frame are from the Papertrey Ink Shakers & Sprinkles kit I purchased a few years ago.
It's difficult to see in the photos, but on each of the cards I used some Wink of Stella glitter pen on the party hat and candle flame.
