One More Valentine’s Card

Hi!

Today I’m sharing a card featuring Lawn Fawn “Rooting for you” stamps and dies. These have been on my wishlist for so long because although I love them, I hadn’t many ink pads. So lately I’ve been adding Lawn Fawn ink pads to my collection and finally decided to get this stamp set. Best purchase ever! I love it!! I wish Lawn Fawn come up with a “Rooting for you, too” stamp set with more vegetables, like corn, tomato, lettuce, aubergine or zucchini, and some “amaizeing” sentiments :p I’d love to decorate my recipe book with those!

First I stamped the images using Lawn Fawn Grape Soda ink and Seedless Preserves Distress ink for the beets and Twisted Citron Distress ink and Lawn Fawn Jalapeño ink for the leaves. I added the eyes with black ink and the blush with Lawn Fawn Peachy Keen ink. Then, I run the imaged through my Big Shot using coordinating dies. For the background, I blended Seedless Preserves, Picked Raspberry and Spun Sugar on a piece of Tim Holtz watercolor paper I had die cut with Lawn Fawn “Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables” dies. Then I spritzed some water and dried it with a paper towel after a few seconds. I mixed Nuvo Mousse on Indian Gold color with a little bit of water and flicked some drops on my panel with a brush.

I wanted to frame my beets to draw attention so I used Lawn Fawn “Outside In Stitched Scalloped Circles Stackables” on a piece of paper and then run it through my Big Shot again using a die from Lawn Fawn “Stitched Circles” dies slightly smaller. Then, I apply a layer of the mixture of Nuvo Mousse and water I had used before to this frame. I glued the background panel to the card base and adhered the golden frame. I adhered the beets using foam tape. For the sentiment, I used Lawn Fawn “Harold’s ABCs” stamps to spell “Our hearts beet as one”. I heat embossed the sentiment on gold on a strip of black cardstock and then glued it to the card using foam tape. As a final touch, I added some heats from Little Things from Lucy’s Cards “Carousel Mix.

To manatee-rific years together

Hola!!

Today I’m sharing a card I made for my hubby, because some days ago it was the anniversary of our first date. Lawn Fawn “Manatee-rific” stamp set is perfect for this kind of card. Plus, this is one of my fav stamps sets from the summer release. Seriously, how cute are these manatees??

I colored the manatees with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and used the coordinating dies to die cut all the images. I inked a watercolor panel with Distress inks using Hero Arts “Waves” stencil. I rotated the stencil because I wanted the effect of seaweed instead of waves.

I used Mama Elephant “All prettied up” dies to die cut the scalloped frame and then adhered the panel to a card base with foam tape. I used foam tape to adhere the manatees as well.

For the sentiment, I stamped the word “cheers”, from Lawn Fawn “Let’s bokeh” stamp set, and the rest of the sentiment with Versamark ink and heat embossed it on silver. As a final touch, I added a few sequins from Little Things from Lucy’s Cards and some sparkle here and there using Wink of Stella.

Mermaid Party

Hi!!

Today’s project is a party ensemble for Neat and Tangled Throwdown – Party Ensemble Challenge. I was missing Little Tangles challenges, so I was super happy when I read about this challenge. Plus, I love Elena’s party decorations!

Now, let’s see some pictures of my project!

I made four party elements: a banner, some candy boxes, some bottle labels and the cupcake toppers. I went for a mermaid themed party, because “Mermazing” is one of the last Neat and Tangled stamp set I got and I love it!

I knew this mermaids were going to make great cupcake toppers. I was going to buy some beautiful cupcakes to have super pretty pictures of my party decorations, but my sister suggested me to make them myself. These are my first cupcakes ever… and the result is so bad! I didn’t know using a piping bag was so hard!! I was doing it so badly I decided to spread the buttercream with a knife… and well, as you can see, these are the ugliest cupcakes ever! But I hope you like my mermaids, which I colored with alcohol markers. Note to self: practice more hair coloring and baking.

For the bottle labels I stamped the waves with white pigment ink on light blue cardstock and fussy cut the edge. I used Lawn Fawn “Stitched borders” dies to add the dotted detail. The whale is so cute!! I think it is my favorite image from the stamp set.

I made the candy boxes using a milk carton die from Sizzix. I used brown and blue cardstock and acetate. To make the sandy hills I used Lawn Fawn “Stitched hillside borders” dies and to make the wavy edge on the blue cardstock, Mama Elephant “Ocean waves trio” dies. I used my Crop-A-Dile to make the holes to thread the twine. The tag is made with Lawn Fawn “Simple puffy clouds” dies, where I stamped the girls’ names using Concord and 9th “Perfectly Penned” stamp set. I decorated the boxes with the seahorse, the fish, the starfish and the seashell.

My favorite element from this party ensemble is the banner. I used Lawn Fawn “Stitched party banners” dies on lilac and blue cardstock and made my own patterned paper stamping the little images with white pigment ink. The word “Splash!” was spelled using Neat and Tangled “Journaling alphas” dies on white cardstock.

Last, I want to show you a card I made using the same stamp set. I couldn’t take pictures of it with the rest of the party elements because I had to give it to a little girl for her birthday, but this card is the one that inspired this party ensemble.

I made a shaker card using, besides Neat and Tangled “Mermazing” stamps and dies, some patterned paper from Lawn Fawn “Let’s polka in the dark” collection and Mama Elephant “All prettied up” dies. The sequins are from Little Things from Lucy’s Cards: this is the Clear Mint Sequin Mix.

I want to thank my sister, since I’m taking part in this challenge because she encouraged me to do so. She is the best!! Always super supportive of me! I hope you like my party decorations. If you haven’t yet, go check the entries to this challenge, because they are all wonderful and very inspiring.

Have a great day!!
