Thanks so much (Happy Day/Waffle Flower)

Hi Everyone, I was lucky enough to be given the Happy Day stamp set by Waffle Flower and coordinating die for my birthday this year. I’ve sketched out about six different designs to create using this stamp set and I know this is just the tip of the iceberg as far as possible designs.

As is often the case with me these days, I am sharing two “similar but different cards”. They are not quite the designs I had in my head and this happened because I had freshly inked my distress ink pad. When I tapped the blending tool onto the inkpad, it picked up more ink than I had realised. Despite tapping the tool on some scrap paper before I started I ended up with a lot more ink on my paper than I had intended. I went with the flow and made the setting a lot bolder and coloured the whole panel. I can always save my original idea for another day! I’m also out of practice with colouring so I stamped the image twice and decided to colour one using Copic Markers and paint the other with Distress Markers. I figured this way I would end up with at least one card. In the end, I decided to make both images into cards.

Here’s the first card…

Happy Purrthday! Wishing You A Pawsome Day (Lawn Fawn)

Hi Everyone, as a massive fan of Lawn Fawn, I love it when they issue their new releases. Well, artistically, I love it but the wallet doesn’t love it quite as much. Haha! I’m sure many of you can relate! The latest release had so many wonderful things but sadly, I just couldn’t get them all. One item which nearly didn’t make the cut was the Meow You Doin’? set. I’m a dog person so tend to favour the dog images but there was something about this set I couldn’t resist. I’m so glad I got it as it is such a fun set to use. I have only just started to explore this set. Initially, I started to create with this set as part of my quest to design an 18th Birthday card (see this post) but I decided to go in a different direction for that project. Nevertheless, since the stamp set was out, I just had to create with it! The one thing I *wish* I had done differently? Purchased the coordinating die set! This is now on the Wish List! It would have made the putting together of some of these cards even simpler! The following set of four shows variations of the same theme but I hope you will see something in one of the designs which will inspire you.

Here’s the first card…

Happy Purrthday
Materials used: Stamps – Meow You Doin’? (Lawn Fawn); Dies – Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables, Stitched Party Banners (Lawn Fawn); Cardstock – Knights Smooth, American Crafts; Inks – Black Licorice, Manatee, Celery Stick, Freshly Cut Grass (Lawn Fawn), Tumbled Glass (Tim Holtz/Ranger); Copic Markers and Wink of Stella – Clear.

Wishing You A Beautiful Day (Lawn Fawn)

Hi Everyone,

I haven’t been able to put the Bicycle Built for You stamp set by Lawn Fawn down – I love it! And, I still haven’t used it to create a scene using the bicycle! lol I thought the little girl from the card I shared yesterday may have been a little lonely on her own. So I had to create a new card with the little boy joining her. I decided they both could have their own swings but wouldn’t it be SUPER cute if there was a bench seat swing? Guess that’s another one for my wish list from Lawn Fawn!

Here’s the card…

Wishing You A Beautiful Day
Materials used: Stamps – Bicycle Built For You (Lawn Fawn); Dies – Grassy Border, Leafy Tree Backdrop: Landscape (Lawn Fawn); Cardstock – American Crafts, Knights Smooth; Ink – Tumbled Glass, Broken China (Tim Holtz/Ranger), Black Licorice (Lawn Fawn), Black Licorice Hybrid (My Favorite Things), Plastic Flamingo (Lawn Fawn); Copic Markers and Wink of Stella.

Don’t they look like they are having fun? Can you visualise a lovely rustic wooden swing seat with the cute couple sitting on it? Now I just need Lawn Fawn to design one for me. haha

Thank you for stopping by today!

Happy stamping!

Wishing you a beautiful birthday (Lawn Fawn)

Hi Everyone,

When the Bicycle Built For You stamp set was released by Lawn Fawn recently, I, like a lot of people, was so excited about the idea of putting my little characters on the bike and creating all manner of scenes based around this concept. In fact, when I sat down to create with the set for this first time, that was my plan. Of course, things never go to plan, do they? lol And on this occasion, I am thankful they didn’t. You see, it crossed my mind that the bike flag looked a little like half of a swing set. I then got to thinking about how I would *love* it if Lawn Fawn released a rope swing to hang from their tree dies. How fun would that be! As they currently do not have this as part of their range, I had to create it for myself. They do have a tyre swing but it wasn’t quite what I had in mind (and I don’t believe the sizing was correct). It’s not the most perfect of swings as you can see and I really want to play around with this design some more but I really do love the concept. (Please, Lawn Fawn, create a swinging rope and swing set to go with the tree dies. Oh, and while I am at it, a large wooden bench to go under the tree too. I have plans! haha).

Here’s the card…

Wishing You A Beautiful Birthday
Materials used: Stamps – Bicycle Built For You (Lawn Fawn); Dies – Grassy Border, Leafy Tree Backdrop: Landscape (Lawn Fawn); Cardstock – American Crafts, Knights Smooth; Ink – Tumbled Glass, Broken China (Tim Holtz/Ranger), Black Licorice (Lawn Fawn), Black Licorice Hybrid (My Favorite Things), Plastic Flamingo (Lawn Fawn); Copic Markers and Wink of Stella.

For my second card, I wanted a fuller green tree look and to have the girl wear a brighter pink to more closely match the Plastic Flamingo ink I used for the sentiment. I also decided to brighten the sky and add a little more grass.

Here’s the card…

Finally, as you all know I *love* Lawn Fawn products so I was very excited to read they have started a new challenge blog called Lawn Fawnatics. I am going to enter the above card in this challenge.

Lawn Fawnatics Challenge Blog

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope these cards tempt you to look at your stamps a little differently instead of how they were originally intended to be used. As for me, I’m off to create some more! It might even be a third attempt at this card design as wouldn’t it look ever so pretty if there was a field of flowers at her feet…or at the very least a few flowers. lol Oh, and I’d like to try and position her so she is holding onto the swing. I didn’t mind that she wasn’t in my cards above as I thought she might be about to jump off. So fun! Okay, happy creating! Have a great day!

Happy Stamping!

Have a Magical Day (Lawn Fawn)

Hi Everyone,

Happy New Year! To kick off the year, I thought I would share one of the cards I made last year but never uploaded it onto my blog. For this card, I used the super cute Fairy Friends stamps from Lawn Fawn. I really cannot wait to make some more cards using this set. It’s darling! This card is something a little different for me as I didn’t colour in the sky. I had seen another card online (and regrettably I cannot recall where) where the sky had been kept white and I thought it was really pretty. So I just had to give it a try – always good to try something new.

Here’s the card…

Have a Magical Day

Have you tried making a scene card where you too have left the sky plain? Will you try it again?

Thanks for stopping by today!

Happy Stamping!

Have an unbelievable day (Lawn Fawn)

Hi Everyone,

Despite the silence on my blog in recent times, I have actually been creating! I hope to have a few more regular posts coming up as I share some of my creations. The card I am sharing today is the birthday card for my youngest nephew, Max. He turns 13 tomorrow (and I feel pretty confident in posting the card as I know he doesn’t read my blog. lol). I decided to make a scene card for him – lots of die-cutting and inking…and it was so much fun. I haven’t made a scene card in the longest time!

Here’s the card…

Have an unbelievable birthday

Have an unbelievable birthday

It’s not a traditional looking birthday card and is rather “dark” but I was trying to avoid going too cutesy and girly. I’m definitely going to have to build up my masculine card stash!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Happy Stamping!
