Lawn Fawn Pop up box card "Summer Edition"

Hi there, today I've got a video over on my YouTube channel using the Lawn Fawn pop up box die to make a card.  This kind of card is so fun as it folds flat to fit in an envelope but when you take it out it pops up into a box.  It's easier to watch the video for me to explain it here, it's a long video but I hope you enjoy it.  All the pieces to make the box were cut on the the Big shot Machine.


Thank you so much for coming by today. I hope you enjoy this summer card as summer fades away and fall comes.

Lawn Fawn Hammock & Tree Die "Have a relaxing Day"

Hello there I'm back with another card for you today.  It features some Lawn Fawn products once again.  There is also a video over on my YouTube channel. 

I started by blending my background on the card base.  I used broken china, black soot and fossilized amber distress oxide inks and blended them using the Dollarama make up brush to create a scene.   Then I used a paint brush and water and splattered it over the distress oxide ink and used paper towel to lift the ink off the paper.

Then I used the Sixxiz sidekick machine to cut the Lawn Fawn Hammock & tree dies.  Once those were all cut I used some chalk markers to draw some simple doodles on the black ground.  The idea behind this was my kids drawing on the cement in our backyard. 

To adhere the Hammock and trees to the card I used the Xyron Sticker maker and assembled the hammock together.

For the sentiment I used the stamp set On the Beach from Lawn Fawn and used the sentiment "Have a relaxing Day". I used memento Luxe tuxedo black ink to stamp that. I also stamped the ball from the same stamp set. Then I colored the ball with my spectrum noir markers and used the colors PL5 and TB9.

To seal the chalk on the paper as I didn't want it to smudge. I took some hair spray and carefully sprayed it over the area I had used the chalk.

Lawn Fawn Peacock Before and Afters

Hello there, I've got a very simple card for you today using the Lawn Fawn stamp set Peacock Before and Afters.

I cut down a card base from Micheal's Recollection card stock.  I then used the bone folder to smooth out the card fold and make sure it was flat.

At this point I stamped the peacock from the stamp set in memento tuxedo black ink and colored it in with spectrum noir markers.  I used JG6, CG1, BT9 and CT4 to color the peacock for a camouflage look.  After cutting out the peacock and I used cracked pistachio distress oxide  ink and the Dollarama make up brush to create a circle for the peacock to sit on.

Then I was ready to work on the sentiment which was also from the same set.  I stamped strut your stuff, shake your tail feathers! and you must be proud as a peacock! on some green card stock. I used Simon Says Stamp clear embossing ink to stamp it.  Then I used Simon Says Stamp white embossing powder and melted the powder with the Marvey heat tool.   I love how the white looked on the green paper.  I then cut down the sentiment into stripes. At this point I was ready to adhere all the pieces together.   To adhere the peacock I used some pop dots to add some dimension behind the peacock. To adhere the sentiment stripes I used the Xyron sticker maker for a quick and easy assembly.



Thanks so much for coming by today! I hope you like this card. I had so much fun creating it.

Recycle with me #17 Frozen Raspberry Package

Hello there it's been awhile since I shared a card or two with you.  I've been enjoying summer with my family and things just kept coming up in the last month that kept me from posting. I was still creating though and I've got lots to share with you soon. I've also got lots of ideas for cards and projects so stay tuned.

Today I've got two very simple cards to share with you. They a part of my Recycle with me Series over on my YouTube channel.   For Today's recycle with me cards I used a frozen raspberry package.   I was able to create two cards with the picture of the berries on the packaging.

I first started by cutting out the raspberries on the packaging to use on my card.  Then I grabbed a white card base that I had previously cut from Micheal's Recollections card stock.  At this point I was ready to adhere the berries to my card base. To do that I used the Scotch Advanced Tape Glider to adhere the berries to the card.  Next came the sentiment I used some red craft smart ink I had in my collection to match the red of the raspberries.  For the sentiments I used some retired "Stampin Up" stamps called "Fruity Phrases" from 2001 that I had in my collection that I love.  This stamp set is a set of 4 but I chose the sentiments "Thank you berry much" and "You're the berry best".

That pretty much finished up the cards but for the 2nd card I added some red polka dot fabric tape to add a little bit of interest to the card and finish it up.  I wanted to keep these cards super simple and they really didn't need a lot added to them. One thing I loved about this recycled material is the packaging was shiny so that added a lot to the finished look of the card.




Thank you berry much for stopping by the blog today.

Recycle with me #16 Dollar Tree Summer Tags

Hello there, today I've got 3 card to share with you today. They are part of my Recycle with me series over on my YouTube channel.  For Today's cards I recycled product tags from some Dollar Tree items I bought over the summer.

For the first card I used a super cute Toucan tag from a decor sign I bought from Dollar tree to decorate for summer.  To make the card I used a white card stock for the base.  I added some blue twine to the tag in a loop.  I used some thin blue washi tape from Dollar tree and added into a boarder around my sentiment.   For the sentiment I used a wood mounted stamp from Micheal's that says "Toucan have my heart".  I stamped it in My Favorite Things after midnight hybrid ink.   At this point I also cut out some hearts from some left over Valentine's day cards to add to my card.  A bonus recycled material.   After stamping the sentiment and the toucan from the stamp I used my spectrum noir markers to add a bit of color to the bird. I used CT4, DR3 and TB3. I also used a black pen to make the words stand out a bit more.   To adhere everything together I used the Scotch Advanced tape glider. Lastly I added some midnight blue nuvo drops to finish off the card.







For the 2nd card I used these recycled product tag from a Dollar Tree decor sign that has the sun on it.  I first added some yellow twine to the tag and added a loop in the hole on the tag.  For the sentiment and to cover up the words on the tag I grabbed some black card stock.  I used a sentiment from a Micheal's wooden stamp that says "You're Spec-tacular" and it also has the sunglasses on that stamp.  To stamp it I used Simon Say Stamp clear embossing ink and then Simon Says Stamp white embossing powder.  Then I cut out the sentiment and sunglasses.  For the card base I used Fossilized Amber distress oxide ink with the Dollarama make up brush and blended the color over the card stock to create my background.   Then I was ready to adhere everything together to do that I used the scotch advanced tape glider.  To finish off the card I added a some English Mustard nuvo drops around the tag.  Lastly I used the Xyron sticker maker to carefully pop the sunglasses into the inside of the card.



For the 3rd card I used 4 product tags from some Dinosaur toys I picked up for my 2 year old who loves Dinosaurs.  This was a super simple card. To adhere the tags to the card base I used the Scotch Advanced Tape Glider.  I grabbed some scraps from black card stock and cut some stripes down to adhere over the french words of the tag and add my own sentiment in.  I adhered the black stripes with the Advanced tape glider and then used a white Sakura gelly roll pen and wrote "Happy Birthday" on the black paper.



Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope your summer is going great!

Encouragement Card Hop- Celebrating all Crafters -Lawn Fawn Summer Concert

Hello there today I'm apart of a encouragement card hop.  The Encouragement Card Hop is different than the typical hop.  It is not a blog hop, or video hop, it’s a card hop.   This is a hop organized to include all crafters.   There are three ways to to find inspiration along the way: YouTube videos, blog posts,  and a future YouTube video sharing cards that were mailed in just for the hop.

I'm participating in a YouTube video.

I started off stamping the stump from Lawn Fawn's forest feast stamp set in vintage photo distress ink.   I colored the stump in with a brown pencil crayon to add some color.  Then I also stamped the stump on some Inkadinkadoo masking paper and cut out the mask. Then I put the mask over the stump and I was able to create m background.

I used broken china distress oxide ink for the sky. I used a Dollarama make up brush to blend the ink onto the card base.  For the grass I used Mowed Lawn distress ink.    After I'd blended the background I took off the mask.

Then I was ready to stamp all the animals for my summer concert scene.  I used critter concert, forest feast and toboggan together for the various animals.   I stamped them in memento tuxedo black ink.

I then colored them in spectrum noir markers. I used CR10, OR1, CT4, TN8, FS3, PP5, BG6, BG8.

After all the animals were colored I used the Xyron sticker maker to adhere them to the card and create my summer scene.

Lastly I used critter concert for the sentiment and stamped the sentiment "A little note to say...Hope you have an awesome day!" in memento tuxedo luxe black. I also stamped the music notes in the same ink.







Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you were encouraged and I hope you have a awesome day.  Be sure to head over to my YouTube video to hop along for more inspiration and encouragement.

Christmas in July Video Hop

Hello I've got one more Christmas in July card for you.   This is for another Christmas in July video hop over on YouTube.

I started off by stamping the fireplace from the Cosy Christmas stamp set from Clearly besotted.  I stamped it in memento tuxedo black ink on the card base. Then I also stamped the fireplace on some Inkadinkadoo masking paper.  I also cut a half circle out of the masking paper for the carpet in the scene.

After placing the masks down I was ready to use distress oxide inks to blend my background. I used vintage photo, broken china and cracked pistachio distress inks. I used the Dollarama makeup brush to do the blending.  Then it was time to take off the masks.

Then I colored the fireplace and added some details to the carpet with spectrum noir markers.

Next I stamped the penguins from the Lawn Fawn Here we go a waddling in memento tuxedo black ink.  I also colored  these in spectrum noir markers.   The colors I used were BG8, BG6, BG4, CR10, CR11, CT4, BT5, BT4, TN8 and OR1.

After everything was colored I adhered all the critters to the card base with the Xyron sticker maker.   Then it was time for the sentiment which came from the Lawn Fawn Here we go a waddling stamp set.   I stamped it in memento tuxedo black ink. "We wish you a Merry Christmas and a happy new year. "

To finish off the card I used morning dew nuvo drops over the fire and I used English mustard nuvo drops on the lanterns on the mantle.  I also used the sakura white jelly roll pen to add some highlights to the stamped images.





Thanks for stopping by today and Happy Christmas in July!
