Lots of Love

Lawn Fawn

January 31, 2019

Hi Crafty Friends!! Today, I have a set of Valentine Shaker Tags for the Lawn Fawnatics: Lots of Love Challenge. I have been wanting to make a few more treat holders for Valentine's Day and this seemed like the perfect time!!

I started my tags by stamping the Lawn Fawn: How You Bean? Conversation Heart Add-On stamp in a Copic friendly ink. I also added the words to my hearts at this time. Next, I used Copic Markers and colored all of the hearts in soft pastel colors...this might of led me to place an order for a few more Copic Markers in soft colors. Next, I die cut the heart image and set it aside.

For my jars, I used the Lawn Fawn: How You Bean? stamp set. I stamped my jar image and then used the Shaker Add-On die to cut it out. At this time, I also die cut my jar frames from fun foam for my shaker.

Next, I used the solid jar image to die cut my back panel and my acetate for the window. I stacked my fun foam frames onto by back panel and filled my opening with clear sequins. I covered the opening with the acetate and then I added my Jar image on top.

I filled clear plastic (pretzel) bags with conversation hearts and tied a ribbon around the top. Lastly, I attached my shaker jar to my ribbon to finish my treat bag! 

Thanks for the visit!! I sure hope you enjoyed my little treats today!

Crocus Flowers

January 29, 22018

Good Morning Friends!! I am back today with a card using the gorgeous Crocus Flowers stamp set from Pretty Pink Posh.

I started my card by creating my Crocus flowers. I stamped them with Gina K Amalgam Ink and then used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens to watercolor them. Next, I used the Crocus Flowers Coordinating Dies to cut them out. Such a pretty little pile of flowers!

For my background, I ink blended Wilted Violet Distress Oxide Ink onto my card panel. I spritzed it with water and set it aside to dry.

Next, I used the Love Shaker Die. I die cut it out of my card panel and again out of white cardstock. I attached my ink blended background to my card base and inlaid my Love die cut back into my panel. 

To finish my card, I arranged my flowers along the bottom. Lastly, I added some Sugar Plum Jewels for some added detail. What is a card without a little sparkle?


Enjoy your day,

Sketch Challenge

January 28, 2019

Happy Monday Friends!! It is another new week and I am back today with a card using the Cutieasaurus stamp set from MFT Stamps. 

I used the MFT Stamps: Sketch Challenge for my card's inspiration. 
I started by stamping, coloring with Copic markers, and die cutting all my images. 

For my card front, I die cut a circle out of my Kraft card panel with the MFT Stamps Stitched Circle Stax. I attached my circle back into my opening with foam adhesive. Next, I added a 1 inch strip of patterned paper (from the Sweet Stack Paper Pad) down the side of my card front. I stamped my sentiment on a banner and added it to my card front along with my images. Everything is attached with foam adhesive.

Will you be making Valentine's Day cards this year? I need to get mine in the mail this next week!!

January 27, 2018

Good Morning! I hope you are having a Wonderful weekend. I am up on the Butterfly Reflections, Ink Blog today with a Valentine's Day card using a stencil and stamp set from MFT Stamps.

Let's get started, shall we? I started my card by ink blending my background with Ranger Distress Oxide Ink. I used Candied Apple, Picked Raspberry, and Wilted Violet. 

Next, I layed the MFT Stamps: Lots of Heart Stencil over my ink blended background. 

Then, I added the same three colors of ink over the stencil, adding my hearts to my background. Next, I misted my background with water.

I let my background dry for a few minutes, and then I added Translucent Embossing Pastel over my stencil. 

While my background was still wet, I removed the stencil and added Nuvo Pure Sheen Glitter in Ice White. This gave my background amazing sparkle and shine!! Perfect for Valentine's Day. 

For my sentiment, I used the MFT Stamps: Valentine Wishes Stamp Set. I kept my sentiment rather simple, letting my background be the star!

I hope you find the time to give this technique a try!! It really makes a pretty background. I love using the embossing paste and glitter with a cloud stencil too...there are so many possibilities. 

Enjoy the rest of your weekend,

Sweet Friends

Happy Weekend Friends! I am stopping by today with a card for the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge: Lots of Love. I have been wanting to try a slimline card for awhile, and today's card seemed like the perfect opportunity! My card measures 3.5 x 8.5, so it will fit into a standard sized business envelope. 

I started my card by creating my background. I used the Nuvo Shimmer Powders in Cherry Bomb, Atlantis Burst and Violet Brocade. I really wish you could see the background in "real life." It has the perfect amount of shimmer and sparkle...so pretty! I will try to add some pictures to my Instagram story later today and see if I can get a close up for you. Here is what my background looked like completed:

For my images, I used the Lawn Fawn: Sweet Friends stamp and die set. I stamped, colored with Copics, and die cut a variety of "sweets." Next, I used the Lawn Fawn stamp and die set: Happy, Happy Add-On for my sentiment. 

I trimmed my card front down to 3 x 8 inches and mounted it onto a piece of light gray cardstock. Next, I attached all of my images with foam adhesive. Lastly, I attached my card panel to my card base. 
I almost always make A2 cards, so this was definitely a fun card size that I will use again! Have you given other card sizes a try?

Reverse Confetti

January 25, 2019

Hello Crafty Friends! I hope you all had a Wonderful week! I am up on the Butterfly Reflections, Ink Blog with a Valentine Card using lots of fun products from Reverse Confetti.

I started my card by creating an Alcohol Ink background with Ranger Alcohol Ink and Ranger Alcohol Ink Yupo Paper. The three colors I used were: Flamingo, Poppyfield, and a little Wild Plum. Any reds and pinks would be perfect for a Valentine day card!!

Next, I used the Reverse Confetti: All Heart Cover Panel Confetti Cuts Die. I cut it out of white cardstock and then ran it back through my die cutting machine with the (alcohol ink) Yupo paper. I attached the white panel to my A2 card base with Lawn Fawn: Glue Tube and then inlaid some alcohol ink hearts back into my panel in a random pattern.

For my images, I used the Reverse Confetti: Mouse Mail Stamp Set. I stamped them with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copic Sketch Markers. Then, I used the Reverse Confetti: Mouse Mail Confetti Cuts Dies to cut out my images. 

Next, I used the Reverse Confetti: Heart Filled Sentiments Stamp Set for my sentiment. I also die cut the heart strip from the Reverse Confetti: Love Note Confetti Cuts Die Set to attach above my sentiment. I attached everything to a Vellum circle with Foam Adhesive before attaching it to my card front.

Will you be crating Valentine's Day cards this year? There are lots of Wonderful Valentine Products in the Butterfly Reflections, Ink Store. Stop by this weekend and do a little shopping!!

Happy Friday!

Next, I stamped my images and colored them with Copic Markers. I then used the Cupcake Critters Coordinating Dies to die cut my images. I also stamped Happy Birthday onto my pink rectangle.

To finish my card, I attached my white panel to a pale blue cardstock mat. Then, I inlaid my ink blended rectangles back into my white panel. I attached my images with foam adhesive and added sequins from the Easter Sequins Mix. Lastly, I attached everything to my A2 card base.

Lawn Fawn: Happy Little Critters

January 20, 2019

Hello Friends! I hope you are having a Wonderful weekend!! I waited until the last minute to create my card for the Lawn Fawnatics: Happy Little Critters Challenge...but better late than never, right? I couldn't let a Lawn Fawn critter challenge pass and not participate.

For my cards, I did a lot of die cutting. I started by creating my critters with the Lawn Fawn: Woodland Critter Huggers. I also used the Winter Add-On die set to give my critters hats, scarves, mittens, etc. I love how the add-on set can be used at Christmas, but also be used to give your critters a "winter feel" too.

Next, I used the Lawn Fawn Polka Heart Backdrop die to create my card panel. I then used the Simple Stitched Hillside Border die to create the hillside (ground). I finished my die cutting by using the You're Sweet Line Border for my sentiment.

Lastly, I used the Lawn Fawn: Sweet Friends stamp and die set to create my little treats for my critters to hold. I attached everything onto my A2 card base and used foam adhesive to pop up the critters. So Sweet!! I hope you enjoyed my cards today!
Please feel free to leave any questions! I am happy to answer them!!
