Easter Gift Tags

Hey there crafty friends!

Hope you all are doing well and practicing your social distancing. To make the best of this time at home, I’ve been spending a lot of time in my craft room making projects. I’ve gotten several projects completed and I’m now sharing my designs with all of you.

Today I am showcasing these cute Easter tags using the adorable Spellbinder’s die, “Truckin’ Through the Seasons.” I’ve showcased this die once before with some cards I made several months back. Now today, this little guy is making a second debut on my blog with my Easter themed gift tags.

I love the versatility of this die. This little truck is perfect for just about any holiday and occasion. Although the die set does not come with accessories for Easter, you can still create this theme using dies from your stash. I’m using the mini carrots from the Lawn Fawn Garden Stitched Border die to create the Easter theme. The sentiment comes from the Some Bunny stamp set by Simon Says Stamp and the entire truck image is popped up on foam tape and placed onto of my favorite Stitched Scalloped Tag from Papertrey Ink.

I simply adore how these tags turned out. Here’s the perfect Easter tag to tie onto a bag of treats and gift to a friend or family member.

Thank you all for joining me today. I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s project share. Until next time… Happy Crafting!

Fab Flower Bouquet

0

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!

Jen Shurkus: Get Cracking On Christmas Challenge

0

Hey there crafty friends, thanks for joining me today!

While scrolling through Instagram the other day, I came across a card making challenge to help me get a jump start on my Christmas cards for the holiday season. The challenge I came across is called “Get Cracking On Christmas,” hosted by the talented Jenn Shurkus, creativity teacher for Lawn Fawn stamps and author of the blog Creative Chick.

After watching Jenn’s Instagram story, I learned she and her pals Cherion Brandon, and Chari Moss each year make a Christmas card or project a month to prepare for their holiday card gifting. By crafting Christmas all year long, once December arrives, the ladies have at least 12 complete holiday cards a piece to send to family and friends. Every third Thursday of the month you can catch Jenn and friends showcasing their Christmas cards and projects they make on their blogs and under the Instagram hashtag #getcrackinonchristmas.

I have decided to join the challenge and too “Get Crackin’ On Christmas.” From now and until December, I too will create at least one Christmas card a month and showcase the project on my blog, Instagram and Pinterest page. This challenge will help me to also build my stash of cards for the coming holiday season.

My first project, is a set of four cards featuring the popular stamp and die set, “Thanks A Latte,” from Lawn Fawn. I stamped the mugs, candy canes, heart, snowflake, marshmallows and whip topping with my Memento Tuxedo black ink and colored each mage in with my Copic markers. I used various shades of red, pink, blue green and cool gray markers to color the images.

After coloring, I cut each image with their coordinating die and adhered the image to my card with 3M dimensional foam tape. I used my Sakura white gel pen to add a few accent details to the images to make them pop. Then I stamped the word Merry form the Hero Arts Merry Stamp and Cut set in Lady Bug Memento Ink and the word Christmas in Verafine Onyx black ink.

I really enjoyed making these cards. I am no expert with Copic coloring, but I thinkI did a pretty good job for not being taught any Copic coloring techniques. I hope you enjoyed today’s cards and will tune in next time for my next card share. If you would like to join the fun, simply create a Christmas card or project and post it to the Instagram hashtag #getcrackinonchristmas. Until next time.
