Fab Flower Bouquet


Getting a jumpstart on my Mother’s Day’s crafting, today I am showcasing a card I made using a few stamps and dies from Lawn Fawn.

The flower arrangement was stamped and cut from the Lawn Fawn “Fab Flowers” stamp and die set. This set is a layering stamp set which allows you to add shadows and dimension to each of the flower petals. I used my altenew ink pads in shades of pink, red and yellow to create the layered color effect on the flowers. Some of the flowers were popped up with 3M foam tape for added dimension.

The jar for this card comes from the popular Lawn Fawn “How You Bean” add on die set. I used my Copic markers in BG10 and BG70 to add the look of water to the jar.

The sentiment comes from the Happy, Happy, Happy stamps and die set and was stamped in Versamark Black Onxy ink. I used the Fancy Folded Banner die set for the Mother’s Day portion of the sentiment and popped it up on foam tape. The polk-a-dot pattern paper comes from the Doodlebug “Love Notes” 6×6 paper pad.

I simply adore this card. I love the color combination and all its dimension. Thanks for joining me today for this quick project share. Until next time… Happy Crafting!

Lawn Fawn Stitched Cupcake


Happy Monday Everyone, I hope your week is off to a good start!

This past weekend I decided to pull out my Lawn Fawn Stitched Cupcake die set and Happy, Happy, Happy stamps set to make few birthday cards to replenish my birthday card stash.

Today’s card design was much inspired by Nichol Sphor’s card using this same Stitched Cupcake die set from Lawn Fawn. You can checkout Nicole’s card and video tutorial here.

Because I loved Nicole’s design so much, I decided to case her card with a slight twist. The background of my card was die cut from a scrap piece of yellow cardstock using the Chicken Scratch Coverplate die from Papertrey ink. This cover plate is A2 card size and perfect for card fronts.

The cupcakes and strawberries were die cut from the Lawn Fawn “Stitched Cupcake” die set. The cherries and stems are die cut from the Lawn Fawn ” I Scream, You Scream” die set. I embellished the cupcakes with crystal clear Stickles to create the sugared look. I added white gel pen details to the cherries for added dimension. I decided to leave off the glossy accents that Nicole included on her card.

The sentiment on my card comes from the Lawn Fawn “Happy, Happy, Happy” stamp and die set. I stamped and die cut the word Happy using my Versamark Black Onyx ink and popped the letters up with some foam tape onto a vellum strip for added dimension. I heat embossed the word “birthday” with my Versamark ink and Ranger fine detail embossing power. I like adding sentiments to vellum strips as it allows your to read the sentiment but not distract from the focal image of the card.

This card turned out super cute and was fun to make. It is a very die cut heavy card and a bit time consuming to make. However, the end results are stunning a worth the labor involved.

I truly loved the inspiration I received from Nicole and her tutorial is easy to follow. I hope you enjoyed today’s card share. Until next time Happy Crafting!

Confetti Heart Plate

Poppy Stamps Blog Post 2.14.20. REV

Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone! 

Today I am back on the Poppystamps blog showcasing my last Valentine’s Day card for 2020. Today’s card features the Confetti Heart Plate and the Love Outline die from our January release.


If you’re in need of quick last minute Valentine’s Day card for someone, you can easily put together this cutie in no time flat.  To get started, die cut the Confetti heart plate from a piece of white cardstock. This die is perfectly sized to 4.25 x 5.5 inches, which the same size of an A2 card.

Now cut a strip of black cardstock to 1.75 x 4.25 inch strip with your paper trimmer. Then using the newly released Love outline die to cut the sentiment outline from a scrap piece of white cardstock and the sentiment layer with a piece of red cardstock. Next layer the red love sentiment on top of the white outline and secure the two pieces together with your favorite liquid or tape runner adhesive.  

Next grab a sheet of red and white polk a dot patterned paper and cut it to A2 size. I’m using a piece of red polka dot paper from the Memory Box Dashing Stripes and Dots 6×6 paper pad. Cut your patterned paper to 4.25 x5.5 inches and adhere it to your card base. Then place the Heart plate die cut piece on top of your patterned paper. Isn’t this stunning! Instant decorative background with no ink blending involved. 


Adhere the two toned love sentiment on top of your back cardstock strip. Pop up your sentiment strip onto your confetti heart plate with some 3M foam tape. 

Viola, your card is done! Wasn’t that quick and easy. 


I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s card tutorial. I hope you found inspiration to either case my design or to create your very own card using the same dies from the January Valentine’s release. Thanks for joining me today. Until next time…happy crafting! 

Love Stitch Circle Shaker

Poppystamps 2.13.20

Hey there crafty friends, 

Today I am featured on the Poppystamps blog sharing a shaker card tutorial using the Love Stitch Circle Frame die and the Memory Box Drifting Hearts stencil. This card is perfect for Valentine’s Day or any occasion for which you want to express your love.

To get started take a piece of white cardstock measuring 5.7 inches tall x 4.5 inches wide and sponge on some Spun Sugar Distress oxide ink with your ink blending tool.  


Next place the Memory Box stencil, Drifting Hearts on top of your Spun Sugar cardstock panel and sponge the heart images onto your paper using Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry and Barn Door distress inks. Add each of the colors in order from lightest to darkest making sure to blend each of the colors together to avoid any harsh lines.   


Now take your Double Stitched Rectangle Frame die and die cut a frame and inner panel from your heart stencil cardstock. The Double Stitched Rectangle frame will create the perfect A2 size card front panel. 


Next die cut the Love Stitch Circle Frame once from a scrap piece of red cardstock and then again from a scrap piece of white cardstock. Snip away the love sentiment from the red scalloped circle frame, leaving just the frame behind. Adhere the red scalloped frame onto the white Love Stitch Circle Frame to create a two toned effect. 

Next using a circle die or punch from you stash, cut a 3 inch circle from a piece of clear acetate. Adhere the acetate to the back of the two toned frame using some strong adhesive. I used 1/8th inch score tape.

With some 3M foam tape, cut a thin strip of adhesive foam long enough to go the entire perimeter of your scallop frame. Adhere your foam tape to back of your scalloped circle frame. Remember to double up on the adhesive so that there is enough clearance for your shaker bits to shake. Brush a bit of your embossing buddy on the inside of your adhesive foam to prevent the shaker bits from sticking to the sides. Now add your sequence or shaker bits. I am using Sprinkletz sweetheart embellishments. 

Remove the backing tape from the foam adhesive and add your stenciled card front to the shaker frame. Add your shaker card front panel onto an A2 side folding cardbase and your shaker card is now done! 


I hope you enjoyed today’s tutorial and found inspiration to create your very own shaker card. Thank you for joining me today. Until next time, happy crafting!
