Fiesta Veraniega

Hi friends!

Today I’m sharing my project for the current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge, and that is why the title of the blog post is Fiesta Veraniega (Summer Party) because the challenge is about parties.

To decorate the bottles I used Lawn Fawn “On the Beach” stamps and dies. I love the fox and the bear tanning. I wish I could, but I have very pale skin and I sunburn easily.

First I stamped the images on Bristol paper using Versafine Onyx black ink and colored everything with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. Then, I used coordinating dies to die cut the images.

I cut strips of blue and kraft color cardstock and then used Mama Elephant “Ocean Waves Trio” dies for the sea and Lawn Fawn “Stitched Hillside Borders” dies for the sand. To give more texture to the sandy pieces, I splattered some Gathered Twigs and Picket Fence Distress Inks mixed with water as well as a mixture of water and Perfect Pearls in copper color. Next, I wrapped the bottles and added the images. Maybe it is a busy scene, especially for a bottle decoration, but I love it!!

I made some straw decorations too. I thought it would be nice to have beach umbrellas for the critters. To make them I used Lawn Fawn “Outside In Stitched Scalloped Circle Stackables” dies. I used the biggest die on Bristol paper and then did some masking to ink the sectors. I used Abandoned Coral, Mermaid Lagoon and Scattered Straw Distress Inks.

Then I scored the pieces and, after die cutting a circle in the middle, I cut them in half (following the black line I drew in the picture) and glued the two pieces together. Last, I folded the flaps using the stitching line. I love how the beach umbrellas turned out!

Just Because Slider Card

Hola!

Today I’m sharing a card using my first Hello Bluebird stamp set. I wanted these bees since the first I saw them and eventually added them to my collection. I love them!! And I think this stamp set is so versatile, with cute critters, beautiful flowers, and geometric shapes.

HB-BeeCause01

First, I stamped the images on Bristol paper using Versafine Onyx black ink and colored them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. Next, I fussy cut everything. I blended Tumbled Glass and Spun Sugar Distress Inks on the background panel and then splattered some water and dried it with a paper towel after a few seconds. Next, I spritzed some Perfect Pearls mixed with water and also added some flicks of Salty Ocean and Worn Lipstick. I stamped the sentiment “just bee-cause” using Lawn Fawn Fish Tank ink.

HB-BeeCause02

I used Lawn Fawn “Slide On Over” dies to make the slider mechanism for me little bee. I used foam tape to adhere the panel to a card base, using a cent coin and a little piece of double foam tape to make my bee fly through the slider track. Then, I added a white frame die cut using Mama Elephant “Madison Avenue” dies. Next, I glued the flowers to the background, tucking them behind the frame. As a final touch, I added Glossy Accents to the honey jar and Wink of Stella to the wings.

I love how this turned out! I hope you like it too! Here you have a short video of the bee flying from flower to flower 🙂

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.
