It’s my first year joining this fun hop and it’s also my first year having two cats as family members! In June, we took two foster kitten in and they won our hearts in no time so they are staying for good and will be loved to pieces. 🙂

Here’s my card that I made for the hop! I discovered that I do not own nearly enough cat stamps yet, I definitely will have to change that! 😀

Altenew – Rose Flurries in Autumn Colors

Hello friends!

Today I finished this card using Altenew stamps, dies and stencil. I was looking at this month’s Altenew Inspiration Challenge hosted by the lovely Virginia Lu and really wanted to join although it was a challenge for me indeed! 😀 Muted greens and oranges are usually not my go-to colors but I added a bit of yellow as well (like Virginia did in her card example) and after thinking about a few different designs I am very happy with what I came up with in the end! And I used my Rose Flurries 3D die set again, which I haven’t used nearly enough! 🙂

Here’s my finished roses card:

Altenew Rose Flurries

I started by using the Dalia Stencil A and stenciling some yellow ink onto the card base as well as adding a couple of green splatters. Then I arranged all of my die-cut and glued-together roses and leaves on top. The layering die set gives a great 3D look itself but I enhanced the dimensional effect by

1) Using foam tape between the first and second layers of each rose!

2) Adhering some of the blossoms and leaves with foam tape to the card base as well while gluing other ones directly to the card base.

3) Bending up the outer parts of leaves and petals a little bit with my bone folder.

Look at the dimension up close:

I hope you like today’s card. Have an amazing weekend!

Lawn Fawn – Birthday Shutter Card

Hello everyone!

How is your week so far? I hope you have things to look forward to during this time.

I’m dropping in to share a card with you that I first postet on my Instagram page and on The Foiled Fox’ blog a couple of days ago. It features a bright, happy shutter card with the newest mice set from Lawn Fawn, which is “A Creature Was Stirring”. If you have been following my card making for a while you know that I love to think of creative ways to use my stamp sets and really get the most out of them. So with this card I will show you an example of how to use the mice Christmas set for a birthday card!

First, let’s take a look at the outside of my birthday shutter card! I left it pretty simple so it will be extra special when the recipient opens the card and sees the interactive part.

SHUTTER CARD FROM OUTSIDE:

I used different patterned papers for my card, all from Lawn Fawn. The card base is die-cut from the 12×12 Really Rainbow Collection Paper Pad – Yellow Brick Road paper. The hello die from the shutter card set is also cut from that paper!

On the inside of the shutter, I added a little scene with two mice and a birthday cake, colored with Copic Markers.

THESE MICE STIRRED UP A YUMMY BIRTHDAY CAKE:

For the shutters, the inside rectangle and the belly band I used the 6×6 Sunshine Remix Paper Pad – pink dots paper and banner paper. For the birthday sentiment I die cut two of the Fancy Wavy Banner dies and layered them up. I used Kraft cardstock for the top banner. The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn’s Critter Concert.

I hope you like my card! ♥
