Lawn Fawn Platform Pop Up High Five Birthday Card…

Two more cute pop up cards!  The last two for this round of family birthdays! These critters are having a grand time celebrating!  Today is Corrin’s 12th birthday and the other is for Cedryk who will be 10 later this month.  They grow up so fast!

I die cut Happy Birthday in blue and backed it with a white die cut, then added three clouds to the back.  I love how that turned out with the balloons! (I used clouds from a couple companies)

Close up… I stamped, die cut and then colored with Copic Sketch Markers.

Our oldest daughter has a big, nice tramp and the kids have so much fun on it!  We were over there the other day and after they jumped awhile they moved to the slides!  They greased them with dish soap and soon there was a competition happening! So funny!

close up… I did different balloon colors on this one.

I used Doodlebug pattern paper for the pop up and TE cardstock for the grass.

Here’s my phone picture…shows the detail of the giant Happy Birthday better! I know I already said this but the clouds! ❤

 

Thank you for clicking over for the backyard playtime…reminds me of a meme I saw on instagram… we had some good times didn’t we! Bug bites and all!

ttul!

Lawn Fawn Basketball Birthday Platform Pop Up Card and SALE….

Hi everybody!  I had so much fun making these pop ups!  Inspired by the Lawn Fawn design team!  I’m so happy how this turned out!

I stamped, colored with Copic Sketch Markers and die cut all the images.

Here’s a close up…I die cut the Happy Birthday die in white and black, glued them together a little offset.

A phone picture just because it captures it a little different.

Holler if you have any questions!

Thanks for stopping by and Happy 4th of July!  BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!

Lawn Fawn Platform Pop Up Birthday Beach Card…

I have a few of these interactive cards to share with you in the next few days.  The kids all have them now.  I forgot to take a picture to show that it fits in an envelope but it does!

I used some Lawn Fawn stamp sets for the images and the sentiment is from Taylored Expressions.

I sure had fun coloring these.  I used Copic Sketch markers and a little white gel pen.

I had to make the sun because I didn’t have a big enough sun die.  I used a Memory Box slimline die and stitch circle die.

I use pattern paper for the interactive platform die cut.  It works better if it’s not a heavyweight cardstock, in my opinion.

I found a yo yo stamp in a Paper Smooches stamp set.  This card is for Henry and he’s quite the yo yo expert!  I love it!

Holler if you have any questions!  My last photo is a phone picture…a little bit different color wise.

Platform Pop Up Hat’s Off To YOU Card…

Hi everyone!  It’s a happy time of year for so many kids! I made several grad congrats cards but this is the only one I took pictures of.

I used the popular Lawn Fawn Platform Pop up die set!  I have made so many of these already!  It’s so fun and easy too!

I used an older Avery Elle stamp and die set for the images and the congrats, graduate strip is from Taylored Expressions. I’ll link to a newer version of the images below.

Super fun images… I didn’t think to get a picture of it flat.  It fit into an A6 envelope.

Because I used Copic Sketch Markers to color, I die cut an extra piece of white cardstock to put on the back of the images to cover up the coloring.  It worked great for the hats because then I could sandwich the acetate strips inbetween the colored hat and the plain hat die cuts.

Here’s the back… I used a two tone 12×12 bo bunny 65# cardstock for the base and the add on backdrop.  The colors are kinda weird in the pictures but they matched much better IRL!

I stamped the sentiments from the set with Ranger Archival Black ink.

Thank you so much for stopping in today! I’m off to make some more flower cards!

My Favorite Things Birdie Brown Sittin’ Pretty and Lawn Fawn Platform Pop Up Card…


Hi everyone! I LOVE cute!  I don’t make it near as much as I used to but I still love cute and coloring! 

This is the NEW Lawn Fawn Platform Pop up die and MFT Birdie Brown Sittin’ Pretty stamp and die set.

They’re small images so fast coloring!  Every girl should have a birdie singing happy birthday to her don’t you think?! 

Tim and I have three granddaughters that turned 17 already this year!  HOW?  Time flies indeed!  Just yesterday they were playing house!

This fits in an A2 size envelope.  If you used taller images, you’d need to use a larger or square envelope.

I used paper from my ancient stash…

The fence is from poppystamps.  Colored with Copic Sketch markers.

Thank you for clicking over! I’ll be back soon with NEW from Memory Box, poppystamps and Birch Press Design!!!  You can see the new at Starlitstudio.net and Simon Says Stamp!

Here’s what I used to make this card…I’m linking the platform pop up but it’s out of stock everywhere. ugh

Sweet Little Stockings Cards…

Hi everyone!  I have another Christmas card post to share before I move on!  I spent some of my spare time the last couple months making 18 of these cards for grandkids! They’re all cat and dog loving kids!

I got the fronts put together and adhered to the cardbases and it was what will I put inside to go with the greeting on the front?!

Very Merry Christmas Greetings… and a meowy New Year!  hehe  Thanks to Lawn Fawn for that part and the Peace, Love and Paws is from My Favorite Things. Very happy with how they turned out!

Then there’s the dog one…I had to color a variety of colored dogs to fit the ones in the families!  I didn’t try with the cats…they’re all outdoor cats.

So fun… I varied the stockings a little bit too.

I wanted to be clever with the saying inside the dog cards too… came up with this…

Very Merry Christmas Greetings…and a Yappy New Year!

So cute…they make me smile!  Love and good cheer to you all!  Thank you so much for supporting me and my cardmaking!  I appreciate it!

Stamped in the Misti, die cut in a Big Shot and Colored with Copic Sketch Markers.

Have a meowy and yappy New Year if you have critters!  I have to settle for a Happy New Year! lol

ttul,

 

 

 

p.s. I wanted to let you know about this great SALE at Simon Says Stamp! ❤

Memory Box Twiggy Alphabet Tags…

Good morning!  The weather outside was frightful yesterday! lol  I didn’t blow away so I’ve got some tags to share!

I LOVE this new alphabet die set from Memory Box…here I used the main letters, die cut in the tag and inlaid the white die letters in the tag then.  I used scor-tape on the back of the tag to hold them in and another tag so the back looks nice.

I used Sizzix Sticky Sheet Grid to line up the dies for die cutting.

Here’s what they look like if you use both the main letter and the backer piece.

I had fun!  I wanted to make the light bulbs more colorful but I made them to match the wrapping paper I have.

I had to paint the beads but it wasn’t a big deal… I used skewers and toothpicks! Acrylic paint dries fast.

Lawn Fawn’s light bulb die set worked perfect for me.

So fun!  I love doing stuff like this!

I used Taylored Expressions cardstocks…

Hemp twine to tie on the beads… black eyelets in the holes.

I glued the electrical wire on and used mounting tape to mount the bulbs.

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you’re having fun making too… it’s down to the wire!  Tomorrow is the homeschool Christmas party my granddaughters and I are doing tag make and takes for.  We have six different tags ready…25 of each.  Probably too many. lol  Fun! Fun!

Hello Bluebird Fishin’ Hole Shadowbox Card…

Meet me at the fishin’ hole!  It’s a beautiful day! lol Here’s the card I made for our grandson Corrin who just turned 12!  He loves to fish with Grandpa!

I saved this idea from Instagram/designs by mommajean when I saw it last year.  So much fun!  I made the video after I gave it to Corrin and he showed me that it looked like the fish were swimming when you bend it back and forth!  ❤

I didn’t have a shadowbox die set that would work for what I wanted to do so I had to make this up as I went.  No instructions, just some Math! lol

Stamps and dies from Hello Bluebird,  Memory Box and Lawn Fawn. I’ll link below.

I stamped, die cut the images and colored with Copic Sketch markers. Since alcohol marker ink saturates through to the back side, I die cut a piece of white cardstock to glue behind the colored images.

Bushes and grass dies in the background from Hello Bluebird…

I took a lot of pictures!

Memory Box dies for the greens and coral in the water…

I used a piece of acetate to cover the opening…

Distress Oxide inks for the blues and sandy shore…

Corrin really liked it and the money in the envelope too! lol

Lawn Fawn Magic Iris Puppy Birthday Card…

Meet Maggie! lol  There’s a new toy poodle at our middle daughter’s house. So I had to make our youngest grandson a cute Magic Iris Maggie card for his 6th birthday in January.  So fun!  Charley loves it!

I used the Memory Box Birdhouse die set for the doghouse because I don’t own the Lawn Fawn birdhouse die.

The dog dish and bone are an old big punch or were they an old Quickutz die…I can’t remember!  I looked through so much stuff to find something that would work! lol

The Lawn Fawn design team is so inspiring!  It’s nice as a card designer/maker not to always have to come up with a new idea!

Here it is closed… pull the arrow tab down and it opens like a camera lens, sorta kinda!  hehe

and a video… it’s bad but gives you an idea of how it works.

Lawn Fawn On the Beach Birthday Card….

It’s Friday and somebody’s birthday somewhere! haha  This card was for a grandson that has a hammock in the backyard and loves it!  As close to a beach as you can get in Iowa! lol

Some faux sand and water on this card but the sky is real! We’ve had some beautiful blue skies the last month.   I inked them all with Distress Oxide inks.  I haven’t figured out the trick to doing spatters over oxide inks, to keep the spatters smallish.  I even let the ink dry before I spattered.   The kinda black spots were Hero Arts liquid watercolor paint, I’ll have to try something else for black next time. If you have a good black method, let me know!  Holler if you want to know what colors I used and I”ll try to remember.

So fun… the ‘shades’!

Here’s what I used… shopping links in the right sidebar if you want to look for these products at Scrapbook.com (15% off cardmaking supplies today) or Simon Says Stamp.  Thank you!  I appreciate it!  I have stamp club today and I’m almost ready…I made some card kits for the gals to make up.  It’ll be fun but there went my time! hehe

It feels good to be using some of the stash!  So I challenge you to make a card with your stash before you go shopping!  I have two more birthday cards to show and I’m working on a poppystamps Christmas card!  It’s really turning out cool, if I do say so myself so stay tuned! ttul!

Boy Birthday Card with Lawn Fawn’s Pivot Pop Up Die and Waffleflower Batter Stamp Set…

Hi everyone!  Back with another boy birthday card!  I saw the idea for this card on a fb group.  I bought a cut file from the Silhouette store for the front.  I cut it on my Scan and Cut machine.

I used a combination of Waffleflower stamps and Lawn Fawn stamps for the sentiments.  The cute ball players are stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic Sketch Markers.

The pivot pop up card mechanism die is from Lawn Fawn.

 

The cloud is the smaller of the Memory Box Marshmallow cloud set.  The hill border from Lawn Fawn.

I’ve always loved silhouettes… so fun to be able to cut my own!

A couple more inside shots and then a video of how it works….

These pattern papers are from my stash.  Oldies but perfect for this, from Lasting Impressions for Paper.

Lawn Fawn Fishing Birthday Card…

Happy Summer Monday to you!  Family birthday card show and tell time again!

This one is for a boy that loves to fish and pretty much most things outdoors!  Lawn Fawn stamps and dies except for the cattails… they’re from Hello Bluebird.

I inked the mountains with Espresso oxide ink and barely on the dirt borders.  The pond is die cut from white and inked with Peacock Feathers I think.   The sky is a Rosie’s Roadshow cloud stencil and Tumbled Glass Oxide ink.

Lawn Fawn Build A House Christmas Tags…

Hi everyone!  Last week Thursday I got to have a craft day with one of our granddaughters Lizzie Faith.  One of the things we did was play with this new Lawn Fawn Build a House die set.  I’ll link below.  It’s not very often I get grands one on one so we made the best of the day!

Here’s my two tags and then I’ll add a picture of Lizzie Faith and her tag.  She also made a couple cards with the Spellbinders Merry Everything Card kit and then she drew and Copic colored an 8×10 picture of Dragon Prince.  The girls got talent drawing!

I just picked out scraps in some teals and pinks and started die cutting.  I was inspired by Kay Miller’s tags HERE!  So festive and fun… always love what Kay designs and makes!

I did end up adding some white gel pen embellishing and glossy accents to the light bulbs. I die cut the main house piece inside the fold so I’d have a tag with an opening card. If you look close, you can see that’s how my tags are standing up.

Funny how flat photos the color changes some… I liked the picture though. lol

Ok – here’s Lizzie Faith working on her tag…

And here’s her finished tag!  She added snow and sparkle! A sweet gingerbread house!

So fun, we need to do more craft days around here… Summer is so busy with swimming and gymnastics, we don’t get as many cardmaking days in.

Thanks for stopping by and hope we made you smile!
