On The Beach Center Picture Window – Lawn Fawn

Welcome everyone! I had a ton of fun creating this beach card using the Center Picture Window die from the Spring 2019 release from Lawn Fawn.

VIDEO DETAILS

I have a video explaining all the details of this card that you can view down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.

The center picture window creates this fun pop up window scene on the inside of your card. I decided to create a beach scene for mine. I used images from the On The Beach which I stamped in Jet Black ink on Lawn Fawn White card stock. Then colored with my copic markers and cut out with the coordinating die.

Copic colors used are: E37, YR27, YR68, YR21; E79, E77, E74; RV14, RV23; BG49, BG43; YG23, YG03; E57, E35, E33; W2, W0

My card base is created using Mermaid card stock and the Center Picture Window die. I thought the Mermaid card stock was a fun pool color for my scene.

The inside panels were created using the Stitched Cloud Backdrop die and cut out with the Center Picture Window Add On. My beach is created by die cutting Kraft card stock using the hills from the Shadow Box die and lightly ink blending Walnut ink on the top. Then I added splatters of ink for texture.

I also included in my scene some palm trees from the Hammock & Trees die set. I used Cilantro, Paper Bag and Chocolate Bar card stock for my trees.

When all my coloring and die cutting was complete, I added my images to the panels and trimmed off the excess.

While creating this scene, I was thinking of a bunch of ideas for this window. Even though I just have waves in the background, you could add sail boats and/or fish. Just wait until the holidays come! Hope cute is this going to be ?!

For the front of the card, I used the Outside In Stitched Speech Bubble cut from Peacock card stock. I heat embossed the sentiment and added to the front. I actually had a different plan in mind when I created the speech bubble but it didn’t work out os I just added a palm tree and coconut drink.

School gets out this week and I cannot wait to give this to one of the teachers !

I hope you enjoyed today’s project ! I want to make a bunch of these fun scenes!

Underwater Sunrays with Lawn Fawn

Welcome everyone! I’m so excited to share this card with you! I was having a lot of fun with some of the new goodies from the Summer 2019 release from Lawn Fawn.

VIDEO DETAILS

I have a video showing how I created this underwater scene that you can view down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.

One of the things I’m most excited about is the Background dies recently released. First thing I thought of was “DIY stencils”. If you follow me, you know I love stencils and creating backgrounds. I’m going to start my card by creating my own stencil from white card stock using the Sunray Backdrop. Then I trim off the border to leave the rays open ended.

For my background, I ink blended Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers and Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide onto Bristol Smooth card stock. The ocean bottom is die cut from Kraft card stock with Stitched Simple Wavy Borders die and then lightly blended on some Vintage Photo Distress Oxide.

To create the sparkling sunrays, I’m going to first spray my DIY stencil with Pixie Spray which is a temporary adhesive. It will hold my stencil in place so I can apply Moonstone Nuvo Glimmer Paste with the Tonic Studios Spatulas. When I carefully remove the stencil, it does not rip my paper and leaves all the gorgeous sparkle from the Glimmer Paste.

While my glimmer paste is drying, I’ll stamp out my images onto White card stock and color with copic markers. I’m using Seahorsin Around, Keep On Swimming, Fintastic Friends, Say What Christmas Critters (speech bubble), and Ahoy Matey. Then I’ll cut all the images out with the coordinating dies. I’ll also die cut out some seaweed from Cilantro card stock using the Ocean Shadow Box Add On.

I used the speech bubble to stamp a sentiment. This is from the Critter Chatter and I stamped Bloop Bloop onto the speech bubble with Peacock ink. How cute is that ?!

In the home stretch of putting the card together, I die cut the Just Stitching Double Rectangle from White card stock which doesn’t actually cut anything out – it just leaves the stitching detail which is super fun! I trimmed this panel down and added to a card base made from Peacock card stock.

I also trimmed down my ocean bottom and background to fit just inside of those stitching details. Before adhering this to my card, I’m going to die cut some Sandy Beach Accents on the ocean bottom piece. This allows me to tuck in some of my die cut images.

Next, adhere all of the fun ocean critters. Now, yes I know there are not gold fish in the ocean but they were super cute so they live in my ocean.

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration! Be sure to check out the video for more details.

Lawn Fawn School House Treat Box

Welcome back everyone! It’s getting to be that time of the year when I need to start thinking about end-of-the-year gifts for teachers and aides. I wanted a unique treat box so I had an idea to turn the Scalloped Treat Box into an old-fashioned school house.

VIDEO DETAILS

I have a video you can view down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.

Using Chili Pepper card stock is key in creating this as that is the color of the old-fashioned school house. Otherwise, it’ll look just like any house. I cut out the Scalloped Treat Box die twice from the Chili Pepper card stock.

For the door, windows and roof I’m using the Winter House Add on. I die cut those from Sunflower, Storm Cloud and White card stock. I also die cut a piece of Cilantro card stock using the Grassy Borders die and add a little Artichoke Ink to the top of the grass with a blending brush.

Before I assemble the box, I’m going to add all of my pieces using foam tape. I love the look of dimension on the school house.

To assemble the treat box, I’m adding Double Sided Tape to the flaps and the bottom of one of the boxes. Then use the bone folder to crease all along those score lines and attach together.

For the sentiment, I’m using the How You Bean Star Add On stamp set. All the teachers and Aids are stars in my book! I heat embossed this in white embossing powder onto Storm card stock and cut out with the Everyday Sentiments Banner Die. I attached to the front of my school house with liquid glue to finish off the treat box.

I love how this came out and I think it will make a great treat box! Hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration!

Ink Blending on Glitter Cardstock – Lawn Fawn

Welcome back everyone! I have something new and exciting to share! I was playing with my Lawn Fawn ink pads one day and decided to experiment. You should know by now I’m a huge fan of ink blending so I decided to try it on the Lawn Fawn Pixie Dust card stock. The results are stunning!

VIDEO DETAILS

I have a video sharing tips and tricks that you can view down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.

In my experimenting I learned a few things that work and don’t work. Be sure to head to the video as it’s easily explained and shown in the video.

For my rainbow card I used Raspberry, Sunflower, Freshly Cut Grass, Pumpkin Spice, Peacock, and Juice Box Lawn Fawn inks with a Life Changing Blender Brush. I recommend using a bristle type of brush when ink blending on a textured surface.

Since the inks stay wet for a while you risk the chance of the inks rubbing off. That is why I decided to die cut clouds from a panel of white card stock using the Simple Puffy Cloud Frames and add on top of my blended background. If you check out the video you can see I struggled getting my panel to stick but Lawn Fawn’s Double Sided Adhesive saved the day.

Another card I created was using Sunflower, Raspberry, Juice Box and Deep Sea Lawn Fawn inks. I added the Fancy Lattice over it die cut from white card stock and attached with Lawn Fawn liquid glue.

This technique creates amazing results but it can be a little tricky to work with if you don’t let the inks dry. I think it’s totally worth it though!

Rawrsome Graduate Reveal Wheel

Welcome back everyone. Thank you for stopping by today. Before we know it, graduation is going to be here. This is a perfect time to get started on those graduation cards!

VIDEO DETAILS

I have a video you can view down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.

I am using a few stamp sets from Lawn Fawn to complete my prehistoric scene including Rawrsome, Life Is Good, Out of This World, Simply Celebrate Spring, Gleeful Gardens and Reveal Wheel Spring Sentiments.

I ink blend a vibrant sky using Fossilized Amber, Picked Raspberry and Blue print Sketch distress oxide inks onto watercolor card stock.

To build up my scene I die cut Stitched Mountains from Narwhal card stock, Meadow Borders from Cilantro, and Stitched Hillside Borders from Kraft card stock.

The graduation hats are from the Simply Celebrate Spring. This made it really easy to color and die cut numerous hats all at once. I just trimmed the hats out after die cutting and added to my dinosaurs.

To stamp the sentiments I used the new Reveal Wheel Essentials Template which makes stamping so much easier! I held the template down with post it tape and stamped all of my sentiments at once. No more pencil lines!

After I assembled my reveal wheel, I added it to a piece of Fog card stock and then attached to a base I created from Narwhal card stock.

Be sure to head over and check out the video HERE. I also provide some information on my card making process when making these scenes. Hope you find it helpful!
