¡Qué buena planta!

Hola!

Today I’m sharing a card featuring Lawn Fawn “Stuck on you” stamps set. This is one of the stamp sets with solid images I purchased recently, along with more Lawn Fawn inks. I don’t know about you, but I love the not-so-new trend of cacti pattern everywhere!!

The idea for this card was given by the sentiment which is a pun in Spanish: “¡Qué buena planta!” is a compliment you would say to a good-looking person, but literally translates as “such a good plant!” and, in fact, cacti are really good plants in terms of being very tough XD

First, I used Lawn Fawn “Say Cheese” die on a piece of Bristol paper. I saved the frame and worked on the inside square. I stamped the cacti using Twisted Citron Distress Ink and Lawn Fawn Jalapeño ink and added their happy faces from Lawn Fawn “Pizza my Heart” stamp set and the rosy cheeks from Lawn Fawn “Sealed With a Kiss” stamp set. That is absolutely my favorite part, they are so cute!! I masked them to do some ink blending for the background. I had some trouble here because no matter how light was the ink color I used to stamp my masks or how long I let it dry, it transferred to the background with my ink blending tool. So I had to stamp on a full adhesive post-it and fussy cut two pieces at once, so I had masks without any ink. For the background, I used Tumbled Glass and Antique Linen Distress Inks.

On an A2 panel, I used repeatedly one of the stamps from Lawn Fawn “Sharp Backdrops” set, masking stripes and stamping it with Lawn Fawn Minty Fresh ink. I stamped the custom sentiment using Concord & 9th “Perfectly Penned” stamp set and Versafine Onyx black ink and added the “howdy” with Lawn Fawn Peachy Keen ink. Then, I adhered this panel to a card base and added the polaroid frame and the scene. Finally, I added a piece of washi tape and some sequins.

Thanks for stopping by!! Have a great weekend!

Band Camp Birthday Card

Hi there!

Today I’m sharing a card featuring Avery Elle “Band Camp” stamps and dies. I love the images in this set, the animals playing their instruments are so cute!!

AE-Parade2019a

First I stamped the images on Bristol paper using Versafine Onyx black ink and colored everything with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. I used coordinating dies to die cut the images. I stamped the sentiment on the turtle’s banner using Lawn Fawn Narwhal ink. I had to stamp and color the turtle twice because my cat Grumpy stole it from my desk and tore it apart. Has this ever happen to you? Do your pets play with your supplies or your projects? I try to tidy up my desk every time I use it to minimize the risk, but the cats always find a way to steal something! They especially love ink blending foams. Luckily, I know that if I miss them I can find them under the couch 😀

For the background, I blended Tumbled Glass Distress Ink on a piece of Bristol paper. Next, I used Mama Elephant “Birch Trees” dies on a piece of white cardstock to add some trees to my scene. I used Lawn Fawn “Puffy Cloud Borders” dies for the treetops, inking the die cut piece with Evergreen Bough Distress Ink. For the grass, I used Lawn Fawn “Grassy Hillside Borders” and “Grassy Border” dies, inking the panels with Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron Distress Inks. Finally, I glued everything together using foam tape for the front grass, the treetops, and the critters.

Easel Card

Hi!!

Today I’m sharing a birthday card I made for my nephew Telmo. He just turned 6 and he loves dinosaurs and dragons, so Mama Elephant “Me and My Dragon” stamps seemed to be the best choice. My sister always tells me he loves to display my cards in his room (which makes me so happy) so I went for an easel card. I love that is interactive too!

ME-CumpleTelmo2018a

I stamped the dragon and the cake (from Mama Elephant “Party Animals”) on Bristol paper using Versafine Onyx black ink and colored the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. I used orange for the dragon because is Telmo’s favorite color 🙂 I added some detail to him with a white gel pen and with a glitter pen. Next, I used coordinating dies to die cut the images. I used several Lawn Fawn dies (Stitched Mountain Borders, Grassy Hillside Borders, Forest Border) on color cardstock to make the scene. I blended Distress inks on the grassy hills to get some depth, and the cardstock I used for the mountains is my beloved Canson Mi-Teintes paper. For the sky, I used light blue cardstock.

ME-CumpleTelmo2018b

I scored the card base front at 2.5 inches from the bottom and glued the elements to the card base: the hills and mountains to the lower part of the card front and the sky to the upper part. I glued the dragon and the cake as well. Last, I added a piece of green cardstock I had die cut using Lawn Fawn “Grassy Border” die to the inside of the card. I scored it so it works like a stopper for the front panel. The sentiments I used are from Mama Elephant “Make a Wish” stamp set.

I hope you like this card! Hopefully, I will be sharing some Christmas cards soon!

Have a wonderful day!
