MFT Stamps – Halloween Box Card

Hello!

Do you celebrate Halloween? I actually don’t but when it comes to Halloween stamps, especially the cute kind, I am all in! 🙂

I recently bought the new “Outside The Box” dies and “Snow Drifts” add-on by My Favorite Things and startet using it right away! So here is the interactive box card I made! I also used the critters from the MFT Stamps “Frightfully Sweet” stamp set and the moon from “Space Explorer” as well as their “Our Town” border die for the background.

The polka dot paper is from my stash – as I went with a typical Halloween color scheme I picked it out for my card … I also used Distress Oxide Ink to give the town border a similar color.

With this card I would like to participate in these challenges:

MFT Stamps – Happy Camper 2 Ways (Guest Post)

Hi everyone!

I hope your week is off to a good start! Today I wanted to drop in again and say hi to my blog readers and show them two cards I made featuring one of the last Stacey Yacula sets for MFT Stamps! It’s called “Happy Camper” and once again it is so cute!

I made both cards for The Foiled Fox and you’ll find more detailed info about them on their blog!

Here’s a short overview for my owl card:

I ink blended a panel with Oxide Inks in Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn and Pine Needles. I then cut it down to 2 7/8 by 4 1/8 and matted it with a slightly bigger black panel.

TIPPS & TRICKS: For the no line coloring I used a light grey dye ink, watercolour markers and added a few details to the owl with colored pencils.

The matching sentiment is heat embossed in white.

TIPPS & TRICKS: The main panel is cut from Bristol paper. For the sky, I faded out a pink watercolor marker in one direction and dark blue marker from the top (other direction).

Lawn Fawnatics – Baby Card

Hello and happy Sunday!

I took some time to craft today and it felt super good to just sit down and make something pretty! Did you create something as well this weekend or were you busy with other things?

My project for today was to make a baby card for the current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge! In anticipation of Kelly-Marie’s and Mike’s baby boy that is going to arrive into this world very soon, they chose the theme of this challenge. In case you don’t know, they are two of the owners of Lawn Fawn. And Lawn Fawn is one of my favorite stamp companies out there! Not only do they make the cutest stamps and dies, they are also very kind and well, I am just a fan! 😀

So, I decided to make a special Lawn Fawn themed baby card that I am planning to send to them. My first idea didn’t work out as I had envisioned it but luckily I got another idea today and finished my card just in time to enter it to the link-up.

I combined rainbow colors, watercoloring and cute critters! Three favorites of mine in card making! Are you ready? I bet. 😉

My Baby Fawnie Card:

Hello Baby Fawnie Card

Here’s a how-to:

  • I chose a Sunflower yellow card base as I know from her videos that yellow is Kellys favorite color.
  • I used light blue watercolor to losely put down a wash onto watercolor cardstock. I applied two layers and also some small splatters after it was dry.
  • The letters are die-cut from Lawn Fawn’s Rainbow Cardstock Pack. The colors are (from left to right): guava, fake tan, sunflower, mermaid, peacock, blue jay. I also die-cut the letters two times from white cardstock and glued the colored ones on slightly offset, so they look like they have a small white shadow.
  • The “Hello little” part of the sentiment I stamped directly onto the watercolor panel with black pigment ink to make it really dark and crisp.
  • I colored a bunch of baby animals from various stamp sets with watercolors, die-cut them and glued them on with foam tape. I chose more neutral, earthy colors for the critters to make the colorful letters stand out. The fox was a must since I know it’s from Kelly’s favorite stamp set. (Told you I am a fangirl! :-D)
  • Lastly, I added a little speech bubble with a stamped heart on the top right.

This card makes me happy! I think I will return to this combination of rainbow colors, super cute animals and loose watercoloring in the future!
