Planet Wishes | Lawn Fawnatics #120

Happy Monday! I hope that the weekend was exactly what you needed it to be! Mine wasn’t as productive as I needed it to be, but it was relaxing enough to have me energized for an extremely busy week coming up! I have been procrastinating on some things, and optimistic that this is the week that I am going to make progress on my to do list! I did manage to make a card for the Lawn Fawnatics challenge – “all things birthday“ as I really wanted to use some new craft supplies I picked up at Room to Craft, my local craft store!

I’ve really been into creating galaxy backgrounds recently, so that combined with “birthday” I created this card.

To create this card, started my stamping the planet from the Year Eleven stamp set, along with a few from the Out of This World stamp set and colored them in using copic markers (Y13, 15, 18; YG00, 01; YR04, 16, 18; B00, 01, 02; C1, 3, 5, 7; R14, 17, 24) and die cut them using the coordinating dies (Year Eleven and Out of This World).

Next I created a galaxy background using distress ink in (black soot, chipped sapphire, mustard seed, wilted violet, mermaid lagoon and twisted citron) and splattered it using white and silver paint. Once dry, I die cut the letters for “BIRTHDAY” using Henry’s ABCs. I also die cut the same letters from silver card stock to create a shadow. I lined up the die cuts and added them to the center of an A2 piece of white card stock.

Next I stamped and embossed the sentiments from the Year Eleven stamp set, on to black card stock strips with white embossing powder. I trimmed off the “birthday” from one of them.

I finished off the card by adhering the sentiment strips and the colored images, using liquid adhesive and foam tape to create a little dimension.

Thanks for stopping by today, hope y’all have a great week!

Love you to the MOON | Lawn Fawnatics #117

Happy Sunday! Popping in quickly to share a quick, no stamping card inspired by the latest Lawn Fawnatics challenge – “Lots of Hearts“.

Just like my last Lawn Fawnatics card this one was inspired by Carly! We were chatting about how we don’t use much black on our cards, and decided to change it up and create a space themed/galaxy card! Honestly, I didn’t like the way this card turned out and I made a million mistakes along the way, but I am still sharing it to encourage y’all to just create!

To create this card, I started by stamping some of the images from the out of this world stamp set, “moon” using quinn’s abcs, and the little hearts from baked with love stamp set. I colored them using copic markers and die cut them using the coordinating die (out of this world, baked with love, quinn’s abcs).

copic combos : R27, 29, 35; Y13, 15, 17; BG 10; B00, 01, 12, 32; E11, 33; C00,1, 3. 5, 7; G14, YG06

Next I created a galaxy background using distress oxide inks (in Picked Raspberry, Spice Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Pine Needles, Chipped Sapphire, Wilted Violet and Black Soot), and gold paint. Once it dried I die cut out a heart using Heart Frames Die Set. I created the background for the card using the Staggered Hearts stencil.

I finished off the card by adding the colored elements to the card front and building the sentiment using the letters “moon” and embossing the rest on black cardstock strips using gold embossing powder.

Thanks for stopping by today, hope y’all have a great week!

make the sentiment the star | LAWN FAWNATICS CHALLENGE #112

Happy Wednesday y’all! I don’t think I have shared this before, but Lawn Fawn stamps were some of my first “real stamps” in my collection! This is waayyy before I started shopping for stamps online and stumbled upon them at my local craft store! And in all honestly I haven’t use them as much, mostly cause I wasn’t the best at coloring! But now that I am super confident with my copic marker coloring skills, bring on all the stamps! I’ve also been slowly adding coordinating dies as I didn’t have those cause I didn’t even have a die cutting machine back then!

Enough chit chat! Let’s get to today’s card! It was inspired by a party goodie bag my daughter got and I matched the current challenge over at Lawn Fawn, so of course I had to finally finish making it and share!

It’s been a while since I’ve made a card in one seating and woah … the copics that I used on this! Any guesses? Scroll down to count them as I have them listed!

Like all my card, I started by creating this card by stamping all the images from the Out of This World stamp set. I colored them with copics, trying to be as realistic as possible! Then I die cut them using the coordinating dies.

Next I created a galaxy background on black card stock using Wilted Violet, Chipped Sapphire, Cracked Pistachio, Scattered Straw, and Black Soot. I splattered it with water and silver paint and let it dry. Once dry, I die cut it using the Twinkle Slimline Die. I backed it with some grey cardstock.

For the sentiment I die cut the Giant Happy Birthday from silver and grey cardstock. I layered them a little off set to create a shadow. I adhered it to the middle of the card front and added the colored images to create the universe! I covered the I with the spaceship image.

Copic Combos : B00, 02, 05, BG10, 34, C00, 1, 3, 5, 7; E 13, 15, 31, 33, 37, 42, 43, 55; R08, 14, 27, 29; Y 11, 13, 15, 17, 35; YG 01, 03, 06; YR 07, 16

Thanks for stopping by today, hope y’all have a great rest of the week!

Out of this World | Mama Elephant

Happy Friday! I’m so excited to be sharing this card today, finally! It’s been sitting in draft mode for a while (I created it for a friends baby!), and I figured now it’s the perfect time to share it for the Mama Elephant guest design call.

If you have noticed (especially on my Instagram) I have been creating lots of scene and CAS cards! It’s been so much fun working with stamps that are not floral! There’s so much potential out there! And when it comes to scene cards, I have been loving sea and space themed cards! I have a bunch on them waiting in my cart too!

To create this card, I started by stamping and coloring (with copics) all the images from the Little Agenda Spaceship stamp set, and cut them out using the coordinating dies.

Next I created to galaxy backgrounds on A2 sized card fronts using distress oxide inks. I won’t do into details as there’s no need for me to reinvent the wheel, but long story short, I ink blended darker shades of yellow, purple and blue randomly and cover the whole sheet with Black Soot Distress Ink. To add some dimension and add some “stars” I splattered both the sheets with water and silver paint.

I attached one of the galaxy panels to an A2 top folded card base, and die cut the second one with the Six Window Cover die using foam tape, to create windows for the name of the baby I was giving this to. I used the CZ design All Caps No 1 dies cut the letters from silver card stock, and added them in the windows.

Lastly I added all the die cut colored images, some with liquid glue and some with foam tape to add dimension.

As mentioned before I am adding this as an entry to the #MamaElephantCD2021Call! You can find my first entry here.

Thanks for stopping by today! If you are every inspired by work you can copy away! If you do share on social media, please tag me so that I can see!
