An ice birthday card

Hola!

Today I’m sharing with you a birthday card I made for my dad using Lawn Fawn products. I love using winter themed stamp sets for winter birthdays, don’t you?

First, I stamped the images from “Critters in the Arctic” and “Sealed with a kiss” stamp sets on Neenah Solar white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo black ink, colored them with ShinHan Twin Touch markers and fussy cut them. I thought the two little seals could be seen as baby walruses, what do you think? By the way, I gave the critters party hats from “Lovable legends” stamp set and covered them with Glossy Accents.

For the sea, I inked a piece of Bristol paper with VersaColor mint ink and ran it through my Big Shot using “Stitched hillside borders” dies. I stamped the sentiment with the same VersaColor ink and heat embossed it with Wow! “Bluetiful” embossing powder. Next, I die cut a piece of white cardstock using “Stitched mountains borders” dies and spritzed it with some water mixed with Perfect Pearls, which gives you a super pretty sparkling snow. Last, I glued a blue cardstock panel to the card base, and added the mountains, the sea and the critters.

I know maybe this card is not the one you would make for your father. Fortunately, my dad knows how silly I am and that I love such cute images. And I must say he displays all the cards I made for him in the living room, and it makes me so so happy!!

I hope you like this card!

Christmas shaker card

Hi!!

I wanted to share with you the last Christmas card I made last year. I shared it on Instagram but I wanted to publish it here on my blog too. I used Mama Elephant “Pix’s happy holidays” stamps, which are super cute, and Lawn Fawn “Ready, set, snow shaker add-on”. These dies are fantastic because you can create the most amazing shakers, not only for Christmas but for any occasion.

First, I stamped the bunny with Versafine Onyx black in on Bristol paper, colored the image with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and fussy cut it. I added Wink of Stella to the bunny’s wings. Next, I stamped the snow globe from “Ready set snow” stamp set with Memento Tuxedo black ink on Bristol paper, colored it with ShinHan Touch Twin markers and used the coordinating dies. Then, I stamped the plaque with Versafine Onyx black ink, heat embossed it with clear embossing powder and colored it with a gold gel pen.

I wanted the shaker element to be an ornament that could be hung and also a magnetic decoration. I had some magnetic leftovers from a super cool set of Mario Bros. magnets a friend gifted me that I could use on my project. So I glued a piece of magnetic sheet to the center of the card base and then adhered the pattern paper panel from Lawn Fawn “Knit picky” collection. By the way, I love this paper collection because I’m a huge fan of Christmas sweaters!

Here is the magnetic ornament on my fridge. You can see my Mario Bros. magnets too 😀

Next, I mounted the shaker element. I used “Ready, set, snow shaker add-on” twice on some fun foam and glued the two pieces together. I glued some clear thread to the backside of the bunny and adhered the thread between these two layers of fun foam, because I wanted the bunny to be a suspended element but apparently there is not enough room for it to move. Then, I glued the fun foam to the back side of the snow globe that is die cut from some pattern paper too. I added a piece of magnetic sheet in the lower part of the snow globe, between the fun foam and the back panel. After using my anti-static tool to remove the stickiness, I added some Lawn Fawn glitter (I used both, chunky and prisma) and close the shaker with a piece of acetate and the front piece of the snow globe. Last, I added the sentiment plaque with foam tape and place the shaker element on the front of the card, where is attached thanks to the magnets.

I hope you like this shaker card!

Hola!

Today I’m sharing another pop-up box featuring Lawn Fawn “Love ‘n breakfast” stamps. This stamp set is fantastic! Super cute images and I really love the sentiments.

I recently ordered Lawn Fawn “Scalloped box card pop-up” dies because I really had fun making pop-up cards and I wanted to do more since it’s kinda addictive! So I used this die on Simon Says Stamp “Sunshine” cardstock to die cut the two main panels and the inside panels. As I wanted some pattern on the outside of my pop-up box, I used one of the Lawn Fawn “Sharp backdrops” stamps on the main panels using Memento Tangelo ink. These backdrop stamps are fantastic to create your own pattern paper! Next, I put together the pop-up box and glued the inside panel using double sided tape. It was easy peasy! I’m so glad I bought this die!

Then, I stamped the images from Lawn Fawn “Love ‘n breakfast” stamp set on Bristol paper using Versafine Onyx black ink, colored the images using Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and fussy cut everything. I used the dies included in the “Scalloped box card pop-up” dies to die cut the decorative panels from some pattern paper from Lawn Fawn “Perfectly plaid chill” collection and stamped the sentiments on three of them using Verafine Onyx black ink. Next, I glued the decorative panels and adhered the images using double sided tape and foam tape. I used a strip of acetate to glue the toasts so it looks they are popping up from the toaster.

Last, I stamped the sentiment “popping up to say” on the outside of the card and added the three dots with a black pen.

I had this card design on mind long ago and I wanted to make it for Lawn Fawnatics “fun with food” challenge. I’m really happy with how it turned out and I hope you like it too!

Christmas gift tags

Hola!

In Spain most people give Christmas presents on the 6th of January. Well, I should say the Three Wise Men are bringing us presents on the 6th of January 😉 Today I’m sharing with you the tags I made for my family gifts using several Lawn Fawn products.

First, I used two “Puffy stars stackables” dies on some Simon Says Stamp “Glimmery Sunshine” cardstock so I had a star shaped window for my critters to show through. I used the bigger of these two dies on black cardstock and on some paper from “Knit picky” collection too, because I wanted my tags to be star shaped mini cards as well.

I scored the pattern paper stars at around half an inch from the stars’ tip and glued those tips to the golden stars to have my mini card bases. Next, I trimmed the tips of the black stars and glued them to the inside of the card bases. I used “Say cheese” die to cut the hole for the ribbon because it die cuts two little holes. The problem is that the hole is very close to the tip end of the star and it’s very easy to tear the card apart threading the ribbon… So today I have ordered a Crop-A-Dile taking advantage of some sales 😉

I stamped the images from “For you, deer” stamp set on Neenah Solar White cardstock. I stamped the back side of the animals twice because their paws peek out the lower part of the stars. I colored the images with my ShinHan Touch Twin markers and die cut them using coordinating dies. Then, I glued the front and the back of the critters together and trimmed down the second backside of the critters so I could glue it on the front to have their little paws there too. Next, I adhered these super cute critters to the card.

I used Golden Glitz Delicata ink to stamp the sentiment on the inside of the card. I placed the sentiment carefully so the animals cover it when the mini cards are closed. With the same ink, I stamped the backside of the mini cards. I have a little bowl on my desk with a lot of die cuts and stamped images, and I found there some little hearts from “Wonderful window” die, I think. I inked them with a red alcohol marker, glued them to the back of the critters and covered them with Glossy Accents. Last, I threaded the ribbon and made a knot.

I’m super happy with these tags. “For you, deer” is one of my favorite Lawn Fawn products from last year. I really love those critters!

I hope you like these tags. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!!

Birthday pop-up box cards

Hi!

Today I’m sharing a couple of birthday cards I made for my hubby and my nephew, whose birthdays were back in November and December, respectively. I decided to make them pop-up boxes.

First, let’s take a look to the card I made for my husband. I used Avery Elle “Band Camp” stamp set which is super cool and my first Avery Elle stamp set.

For making the pop-up box I followed an amazing tutorial by Laura Bassen, and it was really easy to make! I used Lawn Fawn pattern paper from “Let’s polka in the dark” collection and run the pieces through my die cutting machine using Lawn Fawn “Valentine borders” dies to make the scalloped edge. I inked some Bristol paper with Cracked Pistachio Distress ink, trimmed it down to the size of the pop-up box flaps and used the same border die. Next, I stamped Lawn Fawn “Flirty frames” and the sentiments from the Avery Elle stamp set on these pieces with Versafine onyx black ink and heat embossed it using clear embossing powder. Then, I glued these pieces to the flaps of the pop-up box.

For decorating the inside of the pop-up box, I trimmed down to the size of the background piece some blue cardstock and glued it. Then, I used Mama Elephant “Home Collection” dies on white cardstock and colored the pieces with alcohol markers. I glued the houses and the trees to the background to give some interest. For the grass, I used Lawn Fawn “Grassy border” die on green cardstock and adhered the pieces to the inside of the pop-up box.

Next, I stamped all the images from Avery Elle “Band Camp” stamp set on Bristol paper using Versafine onyx black ink and colored them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut the images.  Next, I added these super cute critters to the pop-up box. I used a strip of acetate to glue the parrot so it looks he is flying.

For my nephew’s pop-up box I used Neat and Tangled “Prehistoric” stamp set, because I made his birthday party invitations using that same stamp set and because he loves dinosaurs.

I stamped the images on Neenah Solar White cardstock with Memento Tuxedo black ink, colored them with ShinHan Touch Twin markers and fussy cut everything. For the pop-up box, I used Lawn Fawn  pattern paper from “Perfectly plaid chill” collection and for the flaps I used light green cardstock. I made the hills using Lawn Fawn “Stitched hillside borders” dies on kraft cardstock and I used the same kraft cardstock to make the background mountains using Lawn Fawn “Stitched mountain borders” dies.

To decorate the flaps I did some die cut inlay. I used Neat and Tangled “Celebrate”die on some black cardstock and on some Simon Says Stamp “Glimmery Sunshine” cardstock. I love this cardstock, it’s sooo pretty! It has a shiny look and a wonderful texture. I glued these die cut pieces on the central flap. For the side flaps I used Lawn Fawn “Stitched circle stackables” dies and Neat and Tangled “Journaling numbers” dies.

Zorionak means “happy birthday” in basque.

Finally, I used Neat and Tangled “Journaling alphas” dies to spell  the sentiment “Zorionak Telmo!” on the outside of the pop-up box.

I’ve had a great time making these cards, I think it’s kinda addictive!! I hope you like them!

I’m entering these projects into Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Something New, because the Avery Elle stamp set was new, and because is the first time I make a pop-up box, so they are new to me.
