Lawn Fawn Foxes

Hello! Today, I am sharing a CAS “just because” card created with a combination of Lawn Fawn products.

Lawn Fawn Fox Family

I stamped the fox images from Mom + Me, colored them with Copic markers, and cut them with their corresponding dies.

I recently bought a rainbow pack of Lawn Fawn cardstock, along with several packages of neutrals. I cut the card base from Paper Bag cardstock using the Woodgrain Backdrop. I cut the background for the scene from Mermaid cardstock using the Cloud Backdrop. (I absolutely love these backdrop dies!) I then used a square die to cut the cloud piece to the size I needed. I cut the grass from Noble Fir cardstock with one of the Meadow Borders dies and the same square die. I framed the scene with white cardstock cut with a die in the Outside In Stitched Scalloped Square Stackables set. I heat-embossed the sentiment on Black Licorice cardstock and cut it with a die in the Extra Sentiment Banners set.

Lawn Fawn CAS Valentine

Hello and Happy Valentine’s Day! I’m sharing a CAS Valentine’s card created with Lawn Fawn supplies.

I stamped and colored the birds and envelope from Love Letters, and cut the items with their corresponding dies. I stamped the sentiment on to the white cardstock base and added panels cut from Lawn Fawn cardstock with the Woodgrain Backdrop die. I added hearts cut with the Taylored Expressions Little Bits – Hearts die.

Newton’s Nook Cup of Cocoa

Hello! Today, I am sharing a winter-themed card created with the Newton’s Nook Cup of Cocoa stamp set. I just could not resist this set and plan to use it again this upcoming fall and winter.

I stamped several of the hot beverage options and colored the images with Copic markers and colored pencils.

For the background, I stamped the sentiment and applied Tumbled Glass and Hickory Smoke inks to the background with a Clarity Brush. The card base was dry-embossed with a Taylored Expressions embossing folder.

Lawn Fawn – Winter Bunny

Hello! Today, I am sharing a CAS winter-themed card showcasing the Lawn Fawn Winter Bunny stamp. This is a stamp I have had for several years and never stamped or colored.

Lawn Fawn - Winter Bunny

I stamped the image and colored him (her?) with Copic markers and colored pencils. I created a scene with a snow hill cut with one of the dies in this set. I used an older Lawn Fawn paper for the snow-filled sky and a sentiment in the Critters in the Arctic set.

To give the small image more presence on the card, I cut a frame from Knit Picky patterned paper with a die in the Outside In Stitched Scalloped Square set. I recently noticed that I am using a lot of red frames on these winter-themed cards! I used the Stitched Woodgrain die for the card base to add subtle texture.

I am entering the current Lawn Fanatics challenge. I was inspired by the red, the hearts (there are small hearts in the Knit Picky paper), and the winter scene.

Lawn Fawn – Wild About You

Hello! Today, I am sharing another card featuring the Echo Park Balloons Stencil,  provided to me by Paper-Garden.ca. I recently shared a CAS birthday card with this stencil and wanted to try the stencil with colored embossing paste.

Lawn Fawn - Wild About You

I first stamped and colored a few of the Wild For You animals (this is an adorable set) and cut them with their corresponding dies.

I cut a cardstock panel with the largest rectangle die in this set and applied colored embossing paste through some of the stencil on to the cardstock. I colored the embossing paste with Claudine Hellmuth paints, which I bought several years ago. Once the panel was dry, I applied Tumbled Glass Distress Ink; the embossed balloons resist the ink.

I stamped and heat-embossed the sentiment on a piece of Lawn Fawn Noble Fir cardstock, which I then cut with one of the Meadow Borders dies.

Newton’s Nook – Snow Day

Hello! As I mentioned in a previous post, I’ve been trying to embrace winter and create winter-themed cards as long as I can. (I have yet to put away my Christmas stamps and dies!) Today’s card features images and a sentiment from Newton’s Nook Designs Snow Day stamp set (now retired). I posted a card created with another image from this same set in November.

Newton's Nook - Snow Day

I stamped the rabbit and penguin images and colored them with Copic markers and colored pencils. I applied embossing paste to the background through the Simon Says Stamp Falling Snow stencil after stamping the sentiment. I wanted to keep layers to a minimum, so I used the MFT Drifts & Hills stencil to create a snow bank by applying several Distress Inks. The embossing paste resisted the ink. For the card base, I used a paper from the Lawn Fawn Knit Picky pad. The patterns in this pad are winter-themed rather than specifically Christmas.

MFT Stamps – Beast Friends

Hello! Today, I am sharing a winter-themed, friendship card showcasing the MFT Stamps Beast Friends set.

MFT Stamps - Beast Friends

I stamped the Yeti figures and colored them with Copics. I went for a crazy fur color. (Since I have never seen a Yeti, or a Sasquatch, I am not certain about the color of their fur!)

For the sentiment, I cut a black strip of cardstock with the Poppystamps Let It Snow Frame die. To create the slit in the Snow Drift, I cut apart a seldom-used square die and used a portion to cut the straight line. (I could have cut the slit with an X-ACTO knife, but I wanted to try the idea of cutting with a portion of a die.) I tucked the sentiment into the slit and taped it from behind.

I had everything assembled when I realized I had left off the snow! I cut two sizes of the Mini Snowflakes and added them to the background.

TE December 2017 Release – Unique Valentine’s Day Packaging

Hello! Welcome to Day 2 of the Taylored Expressions December 2017 Release Sneak Peeks. This month the products are Valentine-themed and will be released Thursday, December 7 @ 7 AM PST! Today, I am sharing two unique Valentine’s Day packaging ideas!

My first project features the Matchy Matchy – Foodie Friends stamp set (with coordinating dies) designed to work with the previously released Matchbox set.

Taylored Expressions December 2017 Release

I used the Matchbox die to create the matchbox from both solid cardstock and Playful Patterns – Valentine patterned paper. I stamped, colored and cut the cute taco images from Matchy Matchy – Foodie Friends and added them to a dry-embossed panel for the front of the match box. I stamped the punny sentiment for the interior and added a few hearts cut with the Little Bits – Hearts set.

My second project features the All Tucked In die which creates fun treat packaging. I used the die to create boxes for chocolate squares cut from the Playful Patterns – Valentines patterned paper .

Taylored Expressions December 2017 Release

Several I tied with twine and added stamped tags using Mini Tags and Let’s Talk Sentiments. One I embellished with a ribbon cut with the Mini Mix & Match Bows set. It is easy to add patterned paper to the inside of the box as well! This month, Taylored Expressions has a promotion for this die (details included at the end of this post).

TE December 2017 Release – Seeing Hearts

Hello! Welcome to Day 1 of the Taylored Expressions December 2017 Release Sneak Peeks! This month features Valentine-themed products, which will be released Thursday, December 7 @ 7 AM PST! Today, I am sharing two Valentine’s Day cards!

My first card features the new stamp set (with coordinating die set) – You Have My Heart. Three cute images with this set!

Taylored Expressions December 2017 Release

I stamped the You Have My Heart owls and colored them with Copic markers. I stamped the corresponding sentiment on  Strawberry Milkshake cardstock, and cut it with one of the Heart Stacklets dies. I cut a rectangular panel with one of the Inside Scallop Oval Stacklets twice to provide frames for the owls (these dies are designed to work with the previously released Stitched Oval Stacklets dies). I stamped, colored and cut the limb with the Hoot Hoot Hooray set.The owls’ heads are attached with Mini Wobble Springs for a fun, interactive element.

My second card features the Pierced Heart Stacklets die set with which I created a String Art card.

TE December 2017 Release

I stamped Toffee cardstock with VersaMark ink using the Woodgrain Background stamp set. I cut the holes into the panel with one of the dies in the Pierced Heart Stacklets set and strung it with crochet twine. This took very little time!

Taylored Expressions December 2017 Release

I die-cut the Loved Script sentiment and dry-embossed the card base with the Weathered embossing folder.
