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!!

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!

Tiny Ninjas Spinner Card

Hi everyone!

Today I have a card featuring Mama Elephant “Tiny Ninjas” stamp set. I loooove this cute ninjas, I’m a sucker for japanese themed things!

I wanted to make a card for Seven Hills Crafts April Sketch Challenge, and I had a hard time deciding which card should I make. Here the sketch:

Finally, I decided to use these super cute ninjas and this is my card:

First, I used Lawn Fawn “Small stitched ovals” dies to die cut a window in my card base and a big oval from dark blue cardstock. Then, I used Mama Elephant “Cityscape” dies on black, grey and white cardstock and blended Memento tuxedo black ink into the white die cut piece to get a dark shade of gray. I trimmed pieces of yellow cardstock and glued them on the back of the cityscape die cuts, glued the three die cuts pieces and used the oval die on them. Then adhered this skyline to the blue oval piece and everything into the inside of the card.

Then, I stamped the ninjas, gifts, shurikens and the flower bouquet with Memento Tuxedo black ink on white cardstock, colored the images with alcohol markers and fussy cut everything. On the front side of the card I stamped repeatedly the “hi-ya!” sentiment and the shuriken using Mama Elephant Winter ink to get a soft pattern. Then I stamped the sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black ink. The diagonal element of this card is the thread I sandwiched between the spinning ninjas and held to the corners of the card with the big shurikens. Last, I adhered the other two ninjas to look like one of them is running along the thread and the other one is sliding along it, on their mission of delivering the presents 😉 Last, I adhered the last ninja to the inside of the card with a pile of gifts.

I hope you like this card!

Have a nice day!

Birthday card for my sister

Hola!

Today I have a birthday card I made a while ago for my sister. Besides, this is my first window shaker card!!

I die cut a star from square pieces of bristol paper, fun foam and a card base using Lawn Fawn “Puffy stars” dies. I applied Cracked Pistachio Distress ink to the front panel. For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from Mama Elephant “Make a wish” stamp set using VersaFine onyx black ink and heat embossed it using clear embossing powder. Then I applied Abandoned Coral Distress ink.

I adhered the front panel to the acetate and then the fun foam to it and filled the shaker with a mixture of Lucy’s Things “Winter mint sparkly shaker selection” and “Twinkle lights sparkly shaker selection”, and adhered the back of the shaker to another piece of acetate and to the card base.

For a final touch I adhered some sequins and confetti to the front panel and to the inside of the card.

I’m happy with this card. I think it turned out quite well to be my first shaker card.

And here is the happy birthday girl 🙂

Thanks for stoping by!

The current Simon Says Stamp Monday and Wednesday Challenges theme is “Thinking of you” and, as I did this card thinking of my sister, I’m entering this card on both challenges.
