Lawn Fawn – Meow You Doin’?

Hello! Today, I’m sharing a CAS friendship card featuring the Lawn Fawn Meow You Doin’ stamp set.

Lawn Fawn Meow You Doin'?

I stamped and colored the images with Copic markers. My family had a Siamese cat named “Cocoa” when I was young (we’ve since had many other cats of varying breeds). These images are fun because you can color the cats as any number of breeds.

I added the cats and their accessories to a background dry-embossed with a Taylored Expressions folder.

Only Hearts Can Build A Home

Hello! Today, I’m sharing a card created with Taylored Expressions dies and stamps.

TE Home Sweet Home

Last week, I shared a 3-D house created with the Home Sweet Home set. I used the same die to create a house die-cut, simply by trimming off the tabs from the die-cut shape (to build the 3-D house, you cut the shape twice and add a roof). I used the Home Sweet Home Accessories to add the trim, flower boxes and foliage.

I stamped one part of the sentiment from There’s No Place Like Home on the front and the other half inside the card!

I was recently on the Taylored Expressions blog with an ombré ink technique card – I hope you’ll head on over and take a look!

My first card showcases the Little Bits – Cottage die in a CAS Welcome Home card.

TE March 2017 Release

Isn’t this a sweet cottage?! I added die-cut grass and flowers behind the cottage using the Home Sweet Home Accessories set along with the Build a Scene – Farm Fence. To create the background, I applied ink with one of the Clarity Stencil Brushes through a cardstock stencil I created with the Ray of Sunshine Cutting Plate. I added a sentiment from the There’s No Place Like Home set.

I’m sharing another home-themed card – this one combines a number of products in the March 2017 release with the previously released Eventful – In the Kitchen.

TE March 2017 Release

I imagined a subway-tiled kitchen, created with the Subway Tiles embossing folder. I accessorized with the Sitting Pretty Accessories and Sitting Pretty sets – my imaginary scene makes me want to incorporate more plants into my in real life kitchen. The There’s No Place Like Home sentiment was head embossed on the cardstock cut with the Eventful – In the Kitchen die. I used a Stitched Heart Stacklets to cover up the “O” in “HOME”.

TE March 2017 Release

My first card features the Sitting Pretty Accessories resting on the shelf in the Sitting Pretty set. I used a sentiment from Flowers for a Year which I stamped on a rectangle cut with a die in the Stitched Rectangle Stacklets set. I dry-embossed the card base with the Woodgrain embossing folder.

My second card features another one of this month’s fun and unique die sets – Spin Cycle!

TE March 2017 Release

Although my washing machine is white, I’ve long admired red washing machines and dryers (and they are on my dream home list). Given that papercrafting is one way in which I create my dream world, I decided to make a red washing machine! I paired the assembled machine with a heat-embossed sentiment from Spin Cycle Sentiments and accessories from Little Bits – Laundry BasketLittle Bits – Clothing Confetti and Sitting Pretty. There are a lot of possibilities with this set, and you’ll see a number of interpretations from the design team.

I created the background scene with Build a Scene – Rolling HillsBuild a Scene – Farm Fence and the Build a Doghouse set. I cut the dog house from cardstock dry-embossed with the Lots of Dots embossing folder. I stamped, colored and cut the dog and birdies using the Paw-some stamp & die combo.

It’s a Birthday Party – Lawn Fawn Party Animals

Hello! I’m sharing a birthday card created with Lawn Fawn supplies, namely the Party Animal stamp set (one of my favorites).

Lawn Fawn Party Animals

I stamped and colored with Copic markers the critters, birds, balloons and cake, then cut the images with their corresponding dies. The scene was created with both the Leafy Tree Backdrop – Landscape and the Stitched Hillside Pop-Up. I used the sentiment from Year One. I’m ready to join their party!

Hello! Today I’m sharing a CAS birthday card created with Taylored Expressions supplies. I’m always in need of birthday cards, no matter what the season.

Taylored Expression Hoot Hoot Hooray

The Hoot Hoot Hooray stamp & die combo makes for quick card making!
I stamped the images and colored them with Copic markers. I used the Clarity Brushes to apply Distress Inks on a watercolor panel, on to which
I stamped the sentiment. I added a frame cut with the Stitched Frame Stacklets 1 set for visual interest. I cut the images with their coordinating frames and added them to the scene with foam adhesive. I attached a piece of Woodgrain Textured cardstock to the card base for the background.

Penny Black Simplicity – Sunny Wishes

Hello! Today I’m sharing a CAS friendship card created with Penny Black supplies. It was so relaxing to watercolor bright flowers given the rain and overcast we’ve been experiencing here in the Pacific Northwest.

PB Simplicity Sunny Wishes

I stamped and heat-embossed one of the images from the 30-346 Perfect Pairing stamp set on Arches watercolor paper and colored it with Zig brushes and Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors. After the panel was dry, I stamped a sentiment from 30-344 Sunny Wishes and adhered the panel to an A2 card base.

I placed the colored images, which I cut with their corresponding dies, in a scene created with the Lawn Cuts Meadow Borders and one of the dies in the Lawn Cuts Stitched Hillside Border set onto which I had heat-embossed the sentiment.

Penny Black Simplicity CAS Valentine

I stamped the hedgehog image, from the 30-271 Share A Hug stamp set, on watercolor paper and colored it with a variety of mediums, including watercolor pencils, Zig markers and Distress inks. I cut a frame for the image from patterned paper in my stash. I die-cut the sentiment, from the 51-284 Filled With Love set, twice for extra depth. I added the sentiment to the frame with foam adhesive.
