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!

Treat boxes for cats

Hola!

Today I’m sharing some gift boxes I made for my brother and sister in law. Well, for the cats that visit their house, because the boxes are filled with cat treats 🙂 I was inspired by this project by Jenny. I love the idea of making a gift box for a furry friend. Besides, I’m super lucky because I was yearning for a milk carton shape die and a super generous crafty friend gifted me one from Sizzix ❤ I can’t tell you how happy I am and how lucky I felt!

First, I stamped the images from Lawn Fawn “Meow you doin'” stamp set on Bristol paper with Versafine Onyx black ink. I colored the images using Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and fussy cut everything. Then, I used the milk carton die on some Lawn Fawn perfectly plaid Christmas paper and cut out the middle part of the die cut pieces. I ran the upper pieces of the die cuts through my Big Shot using Lawn Fawn “Valentine borders” dies. I trimmed down two stripes of Bristol paper to substitute the pieces I cut out from the die cuts, inked them with Abandoned Coral Distress Ink and with Lawn Fawn Mermaid ink and spritzed some water and dried it after few seconds with a paper towel . Next, I mounted the boxes using double sided tape.

I cut two thin strips of white cardstock and stamped the sentiment using the same inks I used on the boxes. I glued the images to the boxes and made two tiny holes on each box to tie the sentiment strip with some twine.

I’m looking forward to giving this treat boxes to my brother and sister in law! I really appreciate they’re so kind to the cats visiting their home!

Happy Fall Card

Hi!

Today I’m sharing a card featuring Lawn Fawn “For you, deer” stamps and dies. When I first saw this super cute stamps, I knew I had to buy them. I was looking forward to playing with them, and this weekend I had time to make a card at last.

First, I stamped the images on Bristol paper using Versafine Onyx black ink. The scarf is from Lawn Fawn “Baaah Humbug” stamp set, the beanie is from Lawn Fawn “Critters in the Artic” stamp set and the little pumpkins are from Mama Elephant “Meowlloween” stamp set. I colored the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and fussy cut everything, except the bear and the deer wich I die cut with coordinating dies. Next, I used Tim Holtz “Bricked” stencil with Fired Brick Distress Ink on a piece of Bristol paper. I love this stencil, the result is amazing. Then, I used Lawn Fawn “Wonderful window” die to die cut two windows and I trim off the shutters of one of them (which is going to be on the inside of the card).

I used my craft knife to cut a slightly smaller opening than the window outer edge on the card base, on the front panel and on a piece of Lawn Fawn pattern paper from “Beachside” paper collection. I adhered the front panel and the pattern paper panel to the card base. Next, I glued the windows to the front and to the inside of the card. I blended Tattered Rose Distress Ink on a piece of Bristol paper and used Lawn Fawn “Stitched scalloped borders” dies to make a scalloped rectangle. Then, I glued the deer and the bear and added the scarf and the beanie to them. On the inside of the card, their little paws were to far from the bottom of the card, so I made a kind of bench for them to stand up and peek through the window using Lawn Fawn “Let’s roll” stamps. Last, to make the floor I stamped Lawn Fawn “Woodgrain backdrops” stamp with Pumice Stone Distress Ink and colored over it with a light gray marker.

I stamped the sentiment from Lawn Fawn “Ready, set, shake” stamp set using Versafine Onyx black ink and heat embossed it using clear embossing powder. Then, I colored it with a gold gel pen. I used Lawn Fawn “Grassy border” on a piece of white cardstock and used alcohol markers to make the grass I glued it under the window. Then, I added the pumpkins and the pile of leaves I made using Mama Elephant “Birch trees” dies. I also added some scattered leaves on the front of the card. Last, I added some Wink of Stella to the scarf and the beanie and added some detail to the eyes and the snouts using a Sakura Glaze black pen.

It took quite a long time to make this card because I couldn’t stop adding things, but I love the result and I hope you like it too!

Swinging monkeys

Hi!!

Today I have a card featuring Lawn Fawn and Ellen Hutson “Love ya bunches” collaboration stamps. These monkeys are the cutest!! I’m very lucky, because a super kind crafty friend sent me some stamped on Neenah cardstock (Thank you ❤ )

First, I colored the images with alcohol markers and fussy cut everything. I wanted to die cut the word hello from some pattern paper, so I blended Scattered Straw Distress Ink on a piece of Bristol paper, stamped one of the Lawn Fawn “Sharp backdrops” stamps with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. Next, I blended Fossilized Amber Distress Ink on top and used Neat and Tangled “Journaling Alphas” dies to die cut the word “hello” from this pattern paper.

For the background I used the ink smooshing technique. Honestly, this is definitely out of my comfort zone. I can’t hardly stand the feeling of not having control over the inking. But when I see backgrounds made with this technique I love them! I used Scattered Straw and Twisted Citron for my background and splattered some drops of these Distress Inks with a paint brush. I’m quite happy with the way this turned out! Next, I used Mama Elephant “Peek a frame” dies on a piece of black cardstock to die cut stitched panel which I turned into a frame using my craft knife.

Finally, I adhered the background panel to a card base and glued the stripe with the sentiment, the black frame and the rest of the elements. I love the monkey holding the E letter backwards 🙂

So jelly

Hi!!!

Today I’m sharing an interactive card featuring Lawn Fawn “So jelly” stamp set. These are the cutest starfish and jellyfishes I’ve ever seen!

First, I stamped the images on Bristol paper using Versafine Onyx black ink. Then, I colored them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and fussy cut everything. I blended Peacock Freathers Distress ink and Lawn Fawn Mermaid ink on a watercolor panel, drop some water and dried it with a paper towel. Next, I nested two star dies from Lawn Fawn “Puffy stars” dies and run the panel through my Big Shot.

I made a stripe pattern on a piece of Bristol paper using Tattered Rose and Picked Raspberry Distress Inks and masking using Post-it tape. Then, I stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx black ink and heat embossed it using clear embossing powder. Next, I glued the striped panel to a card base and mounted the slider card using double foam adhesive. I added some rays applying a mixture of Perfect Pearls and water with a brush, and used Wink of Stella on the starfish and added Glossy Accents to the jellyfishes. Finally, I rounded the bottom corners using the Corner Chomper.

Here is a video of the slider card. I love how the three jellyfishes move and spin around the starfish!
