Let’s Toast with Lawn Fawn

Hello and welcome back!

I am just quickly saying “hi” today with this interactive card using Lawn Fawn’s Let’s Toast stamps and dies!

POPPIN’ UP TO SAY …

Lawn Fawn Let's Toast CardLawn Fawn Let's Toast Popped Up Card

I combined the Let’s Toast set with a tiny speech bubble die from Rawr! Isn’t that cute?

For the colors, I was inspired by the ongoing Lawnfawnatics challenge. I used pinks and lilac for the background and interpreted the gold-ish brush strokes on the inspirational picture as kraft.

I heat embossed a white heart onto the toaster twice to make it look like some kind of a 3-D logo that you sometimes find on electric devices. I would totally want such a toaster! 😀 😀

Thank you for stopping by. Have an amazing day! ♥

4 Cards With Blue Backgrounds

Hello and happy Sunday!

It’s all grey and rainy here today … Which makes it a perfect day for crafting and blogging! 😀

I made a couple of cards over the last days and it turned out they all have dark blue on the backgrounds! It wasn’t planned – I guess I just felt like using blue. Two cards mimic a blue background as water, the other two use blue to create a wintery wood scene.

Masking Backgrounds with Dies (Winnie & Walter Leading Lady #2)

Hi there!

I am very happy to be back on the blog with my second post as Winnie & Walter’s Leading Lady!!

winnie_walter_leading_lady_rosali_february2019

Last week I shared two card designs where I used masking with stencils to create backgrounds. This week I am instead:

MASKING BACKGROUNDS WITH DIES!

Using dies to die cut a mask for your background is an additional way to use stand-alone dies. I really like the seamless look you can get by doing this. And, another advantage is that it minimalizes layers on your cards and keeps them flat for easy and inexpensive mailing.

For today’s cards I chose one of Winnie & Walter’s True Multifaceted Heart Cutaways. With Valentine’s Day being only a few days away I thought I would share an idea for rather simple friendship cards – in case some of you want to make last-minute Valentine’s Day cards. 🙂

I MADE THREE VARIATIONS OF MY DESIGN:

Here’s how I created my masked backgrounds:

  1. I took a piece of masking paper and die cut it using the triangled True Multifaceted Heart Cutaway. By the way, I always use repositionable labels as masking paper as it comes in a large pack and works perfectly fine for me.
  2. I took the largest die from the Tilda Cutaways set (with the cool jagged edges) and die cut three backgrounds panels from Neenah Solar White cardstock. Then I adhered the die cut heart onto one of the panels and picked a yellow, peachy and pink ink pad from my stash.
  3. For the first card (yellow birdies), I inkblended the three inks all over the background panel going. For the second card (dog & cat), I inkblended each color from left to right as well but just covered the heart and left the rest of the card white. For the third variation (pink birdie), I started inkblending pink ink in the center of the heart, and then added peach and yellow around it.
  4. After removing the mask from the last panel I added different splatters to all three backgrounds: tiny black watercolor splatters, pink ink splatters and Perfect Pearls splatters for some shimmer.

I picked three cute images from the So Tweet and Big Hugs stamp sets. Both sets are illustrated by Evelin T Designs and I just love all her critters! 😀 I colored the images with Copic Markers, cut them out and adhered them over the hearts using foam tape.

COPIC GUIDE & COLORING TIPS:

Pink birdie: RV02, RV04, RV06, RV09 / YR 68 / Y13, Y08, Y35

Dog: W0, W1, E21, E33, E35, E57, R20

Cat: W1, W3, W5, W9, R20

Yellow birdies: Y11, Y13, Y08, Y35 / RV13, RV04

TIP 1: Use flicks from a white gel pen to get a feathery look – like I did on the pink bird. It’s the same easy coloring technique that I used last week for the yeti’s fur!

TIP 2: Add a little bit of grey shading to the dog where his fur is supposed to be white.

TIP 3: For the dog’s light brown spots, first draw them in with the lightest E-marker. Then add shading from outer parts of the spots or where the shadows would be.

ADDING SENTIMENTS TO MY CARDS

For the sentiments I used “You’re so tweet” from So Tweet with Evelin T Designs stamp set and “Sending Big Hugs” and “just for you” from Big Hugs with Evelin T Designs stamp set.

On the pink birdie card, I heat embossed the sentiment in white on a wider strip of kraft cardstock. I die cut that strip with the Tilda rectangle die to give it the same jagged edges as the card front. For the cat & dog card, I used a banner sticker from my stash for the sentiment. And for the yellow birdies card, I heat embossed the sentiment with shiny platinum embossing powder that matches the color of the Perfect Pearls splatters.
