Simple Male Card with Music Notes

Hello!

Today I am back with a very clean and simple male card using Lawn Fawn stamps and dies! Just like many other cardmakers I know I often struggle with ‘male designs’, especially since I love to use critters on my cards and often times men aren’t really into those cute animal images. 😉 But I needed a card for a family member and he is a fan of music, plays the gitarre himself … So it was the perfect opportunity to use my new Lawn Fawn “Little Music Notes” dies that I snatched up at a sale recently.

My design was inspired by the sketch from CAS(E) this sketch challenge (see below) and the “inspired by a song” theme from papercraft challenges. The song is obviously “Happy Birthday” … I also looked up the notes since I do not play an instrument myself to make the glued down music notes matching to the beginning of the song.

CAS Triangle Cards with Altenew

Hello!

I squeezed in some time to play with my never before used Triangle dies from Altenew (love!) and took the challenge of making a card with the color scheme from their current Inspiration Challenge! This color combo Isee banner below) is far outside my comfort zone but you all know I love a good cardmaking challenge and stretch my creative muscles in that way! 😉

HERE’S MY FINISHED TRIANGLE CARD:

CAS Triangle Card with Altenew 1

I was going for a CAS design with some dimension to it (thanks, foam tape!) … And texture from the ink smooshing and splattering. The label sentiments look almost black in the pictures but are actually stamped with a dark green ink. Sentimentssss, yes – because I had so many leftover pieces after making this card that I put together a second one with a very similar design.

“Hootiful” Cards with Heffy Doodle Owls (Blog Hop & Giveaway)

Hi there and welcome!

Today I am very excited to be part of the Heffy Doodle Blog Hop celebrating their new, 5th release!

Heffy Doodle Blog HopGraphic

I made two cards with the super cute owls from the “Hootiful” stamp set and also used their new double (inside and outside the cutting line) stitched rectangle dies to create sort of a window frame for my basic scenes.

The rectangle dies from Heffy Doodle that I am using are also in EU size! The largest cut stitched rectangle fully covers an A6 (EU standard size) card front. Therefore it measures approximately 10,5 x 14,8 cm. I have not seen a rectangle die like this before, very useful for us European crafters! 😀

MY “HOOTIFUL” BIRTHDAY CARD

For my first card I used the UnbeLEAFable stencil together with some acrylic paste and Distress Ink for the background as well as the Happy die for my sentiment. The owls are stamped, colored with Copics and die cut with the coordinating dies.

SECOND CARD: OWLS & LUCKY STARS

For my second card I used the new Starfall stencil over dark blue cardstock. Then I added the moon and some extra stars from the Hootiful stamp set and heat embossed them in gold. The moon and heart are also filled with a hint of glitter from a Wink Of Stella pen. I used a bit of masking paper to place two owls next to each other on the branch making it look as if one is hugging the other (at least that’s what I was going for lol). Then I fussy cut around the masked images with my Cutter Bee scissors.
