Adding Dimension to Die Cuts – Lawn Fawn

Welcome back everyone! I have another video for Lawn Fawn today that shows how you can add dimension to your die cuts.
These cards are super simple and quite easy to put together. To add a little definition to the ice cream cones, I inked the edges of my die cut pieces with various Lawn Fawn ink.
I used patterned paper from Gotta Have Gingham for my backgrounds. I think that paper just gives a nice summery feel to the cards.
You can see in the picture above that a bit of inking around the edges, just helps define the ice cream a little more.
I used Tonic Crystal Glaze on the dipped part of my ice cream cones and carefully sprinkled on some Prisma glitter. I just love this sparkle!
I added in some Simply Sentiments to finish off the cards and added them to the Everyday Sentiments Banner die.
Supplies will be listed below.

Hibiscus Frame – Simon Says Stamp

Welcome friends! Today I’m sharing a card using many products from the Simon Says Stamp Sending Sunshine release! 

This is a beautiful card that doesn’t take a lot of time to create. I’m going to start off by creating my front panel. I used Bristol Smooth cardstock for the ink blending and Neenah Solar White to die cut a white panel with the Hibiscus Die. On the Bristol Smooth carstock, I ink blend Peacock Feathers, Tumbled Glass and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Ink. I trimmed this panel and the die cut piece down to 4″ x 5 1/4 to layer it onto black cardstock.
I used some liquid glue to attach my die cut piece to my ink blended panel. My suggestion is to use a spray adhesive. The reason I suggest this is because if you are using a liquid glue and it seeps out a little, it’s going to activate the oxide ink. I noticed it on my card later and it still looks amazing but just a word of caution if you are following my footsteps.
I die cut the Big Friend die from White Glitter cardstock and the shadow piece from black cardstock. The sentiment is from You Got This stamp set in which I stamped onto my card with black ink.
To add a little more interest and sparkle I added some sequins from the Moonshine Assortment from Simon Says Stamp and added some White Blizzard Nuvo drops to the center.

Create an Ocean with Alcohol Inks – Lawn Fawn

Welcome back to another post/video for Lawn Fawn!! WARNING! Lots of inspiring pictures!
Lawn Fawn is teaming up with Xyron this week so be sure to head to their blog after my post to see more inspiration. 

I had waaay too much fun creating this card. You ever get in “the zone” and just keep thinking of different things to add? Well…that was me on this card. Make that two cards. I decided to make an ocean background using my alcohol inks which were feeling a little left out lately. 
For creating my background, I am using Yupo paper which is specific for alcohol inks. I’m sure there are other reasons to use it but I only know of alcohol inks haha! I did something different where I first added some Isopropyl Alcohol 91% to my Yupo paper with a dropper that I actually got from my essential oils. Once my background was saturated, I started adding the alcohol ink and then moving my paper around.  
This was an interesting experiment for me. For one: wear gloves. Unless you are ok getting ink all over your hands and fingernails (see video). The Isopropyl alcohol made the alcohol inks blend much smoother and toned down the colors a little. If you are going to get inky, might as well make two backgrounds.
While those were drying, I stamped out a bunch of sea images. I have lots of smaller sets in my stash including So Jelly, Duh-nuh, and also the bigger set You Are Sublime. I copic colored all the images and die cut out using the coordinating dies which makes things so much easier.
I used my Xyron sticker maker to add adhesive to all of my small images. Trust me – the sticker maker is a must have in your crafty stash. You will wonder why you never had it before! 
For the rest of the card, I die cut the Stitched Woodgrain die from Paper Bag cardstock. I also die cut the port hole frame from white cardstock. Then I added Versamark all over those port hole frames, added Gold embossing powder and heated.  
In the inside of the card, I added an ocean bottom using the Stitched Hillside with Vanilla Malt cardstock. 
Coral – R11, R22; Greens – G09, G03; YG07, YG01; Shark – B97, B95, B93; Teal – BG45, BG59; Yellow – Y38, Y15; Yellow – Y38, Y15; Purple – V04, V01

Elphie Selfie – Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #32

Hello Hello Everyone!! Today’s card is for the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #32 going on right now! Keep reading for more details and video!
The challenge is a mood board and one of the DT members used this fun plaid paper that totally inspired my card today. I’m using this adorable Elphie Selfie stamp set. 
I start out by stamping my images onto Neenah white cardstock using Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink which is copic safe. Then I color with copic markers and die cut using the coordinating die set. I’ve really been loving having the coordinating die sets. For one, it cuts out almost every image. Second, I just don’t have room to keep my Scan n Cut Machine out all the time so the dies come in super handy. Bonus – I just love the smooth edge it leaves. 
I cut out some grassy borders using Cilantro Cardstock and ink the top edges of the grass with Cilantro ink from Lawn Fawn. I also cut out some puffy clouds from a piece of Watercolor Wishes paper and ink those edges with Moonstone ink from Lawn Fawn. 
My sentiment is from the Elphie Selfie stamp set and I heat emboss that in white embossing powder on Moonstone cardstock. I used the Everyday Sentiments Banner die to die cut out my sentiment. The Everyday Sentiments Banner is such a great staple die to have in your collection! 
I start to layer up my card first starting with Moonstone Cardstock as my base. Then adding white cardstock and the plaid from Perfectly Plaid Spring paper in which I die cut using the Small Stitched Rectangles die. I love how all of the elements come together! 
I have a video put together for this card that you can view down below or HERE on my Youtube Channel.
