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.

 

 

 

Linking up to the SSS Wednesday Moving Parts Challenge.

Thanks so much for stopping by to see this Summer card!  It was a shame the boys didn’t get to play this year.  I’ll link up what I used below.

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.

Here’s what I used…

 

Thanks for stopping by! Keep cool! ha!

5 Memory Box Die Cards….

I’ve been working on cards!  This is a long post so keep scrolling!  

I wanted to make something cool with this NEW Leafy Tree die… it looks Summery anyway!  I also used the NEW Double Stitch Rectangle Cut Out die set… I like it a lot!  I die cut the Leafty Tree Frame in TE Peapod cardstock and colored the tree trunk with a dark brown Copic Sketch Marker!  It covers the green really well!

The sentiment is from the NEW poppystamps Greeting Basics clear stamp set.  So many good sentiments in this set.  I’m going to get a lot of use out of it.

I love how the leaves can be embossed with this Leafy Tree Frame die and then inked with a little stamp pad ink.  I used TE Peapod ink to match the cardstock. The background is Tumbled Glass Oxide ink brushed on to a Toffee/kraft piece of cardstock…same as the card front. I like the look it gave as compared to using it on white.

 

The next card…same dies… but I cut the Leafy Tree Frame in Brown, then in a scrap of green and trimmed off the frame and trunk parts..

Sentiment from the same poppystamps set…

 

Next I played with the NEW Birthday Cursive Script Circle…

This card is greener IRL… the pictures turned out more blue… it looks ‘beachy’ here! lol  I think I might have to switch back to east windows for Summer pictures.

I used the NEW Stylish Rectangle Trio die and the NEW Birthday Cursive Script Circle for this card and inlaid them both in the card panel that I pieced together with three Bazzill Card Shoppe cardstocks, HERE

The happy die was new last year… then some enamel dots and why did this card take me hours! lol   I guess that’s pretty normal around here. lol


Next two cards I used the same Birthday circle die, just cut it out from the frame but one is the NEW pattern paper pad Garden Folly, HERE and the other TE cardstocks.  I used the NEW Scribble Rose Trio and Background die also.

 

I’m not sure about these colors at all!  I debated even showing the card! lol  But here it goes.

I used TE Dijon and Peapod cardstocks and ink pads  I know…interesting! lol  Taylored Expressions has been so good to tell us what Copic markers match their ink pads and cardstock too!  So I colored the die cut with matching Copics!

Oh, I used the NEW Gracious Leaves 3D Embossing folder too!  It’s really pretty made up and inked for accent.

This card I cut a circle from the embossed panel and mounted it to the card base with foam mounting tape.  The Rose Trio die is recessed a little then… I really like how it looks. The word ‘wishes’ is from the  Big and Little Words clear stamp set

I’m gonna stop now before your eyes cross from this crazy variety of cards! lol

Thank you so much for stopping by and scrolling forever!  I appreciate it and hope I made you smile!

3 Letterboard Cards…

Hi everyone!  Did you see the Splitcoast Stampers recent email talking about Letterboard cards? oh, I keep calling them this but I think the email called them Marque cards. Here’s the tutorial!

My first one is a birthday card for our oldest grandson.  I used an old alphabet die set from Quickutz called Diesel.  The birthday wishes postal circle is from Inkadinkado.

I will link up a bunch of alternative, similar alphabet die sets in my linkdeli collection at the end of the post.  They would all make awesome cards like this too!

This one is ¼ of an inch taller than a regular A2 card.  I mailed it in an A7 envelope.

The little bit of coloring is with Copics.

The next one is the card I made for Tim/husband.  Four family birthdays in January! Two more to go! hehe

This one I used a different alphabet.  It’s Parker from Memory Box. (my link below is to Parker lower case, upper isn’t available anymore)  The little candle is from a Quickutz die set and the heart was on my desk.

I scored lines this time with my scor-pal instead of making ¼ inch strips and foam mounting tape like I did for the others.

Harder to see the scored lines in that picture…

There you can see them again.  This card is A2 size and the cardbase is Cookie Monster cardstock from Taylored Expressions.

Glossy Accents on the candle and heart.

My third cards are thank yous!  I need several right now!  ❤

I really had fun with this card style… but I quit for now because I need to do other stuff! lol

This is Quickutz Diesel alphabet again.  The heart is from Honeybee Stamps.

The red and black cardstocks are from Taylored Expressions also.  The envelopes I made for these is a digital cut from Kerri Bradford.com.  I cut them on the Scan and Cut cm350.   I’ve been experimenting to use it more!  yay!  It’s like a coin envelope style… I should’ve taken a better picture of just the envelopes.  You can find it HERE.

A2 size and I used two Pool notecards from Memory Box for the card bases.

Thank you for stopping by today!  I’ll be back real soon with another Reverse Confetti card, then more Memory Box and poppystamps coming your way! Hope the new year is finding you with time to make.  I can’t believe this month is almost history!  :O

$5 off code for SSS right now is LVEYU842  (good ’til 3/1)

Then there’s a grrreat sale at Taylored Expressions!  You know I love their cardstock and I received the blending brushes for Christmas!!!  Link below and get the brushes, caddy and cleaning tool now while they are 30% off!!!  (hmmm, do I need another set?!) lol Sale today, 9 a.m. CST the 23rd through tomorrow 9 a.m. CST the 24th!  HURRY!  😀

poppystamps Happy Birthday Card…

Hi everyone! Every once in awhile I’m inspired to use something from my stash….so don’t shoot me because today I’m using a die that is no more!  poppystamps Happy Birthday Melody. 

I stapled it on with the tiny attacher stapler.

The word belated is from a Lawn Fawn stamp set that I stamped… I love how it turned out.

Some washi tape on the background piece and an old canvas looking background stamped in black.

This is not your normal cardstock!  A gal from stamp club brought this and gave it to us… It’s chipboard like.  So fun and it just adds more to the masculine feel of the card.

An A2 size, clean and simple card that just came together with stuff from my stash!  yay!

Thanks for stopping by! I’ll be back with more birthday cards… I can’t show yet because I don’t want the peeps to see them before they receive them!  hehe

We’re celebrating Winter here in Iowa with a snowstorm that’s living up to the forecast!  Sorry to the ppl that need to go places! Take care!  ❤

BF-Holiday-Blog-Hop-Social-1200x1200.jpg

If you’ve arrived from Varada Sharma, you’re on the right track! Keep reading to find out about the giveaway and my card!

A chance to win!
To celebrate this release, Spellbinders is giving away a $50 gift certificate to one lucky blog reader – selected from the comments across all of the blogs in the hop. Giveaway closes on Sunday, September 1st, 11:59 pm EDT. The winner will be announced in the blog hop post the following Tuesday. The winner is responsible for shipping cost, duties and taxes.

I’m using the Grand Holiday Cabinet Card die set along with one die from the Layered Thinking of You Woodland Scene die set.

This was fun to make and so beautiful when finished.  I used a cardstock that has a little bit of silver glitter in it.  I watched a couple videos so I’d know how to use the sets to get the layers…I’m amazed at how many ways you can change this up!

I love the dimension…I used a silver and gold metallic pen to accent two of the frames.

The illusion of a Winter Wonderland!

The best part is, it collapses to fit in an envelope! Perfect for that special someone in your life that keeps your cards! lol
