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.

Did Someone Say Birthday?

Hello! Today I’m sharing a birthday card created with Taylored Expressions supplies showcasing the Paw-some stamp & die combo. There are multiple birthdays on our family’s horizon!

Taylored Expressions Paw-some Birthday

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. I stamped one of the set’s sentiments on the card background sky.

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!

Hoot Hoot Hooray

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.

Taylored Expressions Hello There

I stamped the Simply Succulents images and colored them with Copics markers. I used their corresponding dies to cut them out. I used the large Clarity brush to apply the Sprinkles ink to the Watercolor cardstock, which I cut with the largest die in the Stitched Rectangles Stacklets set. I dry-embossed the card base with the Herringbone folder.

Hello! Today I’m sharing a spring-themed “just because” card created with Lawn Fawn supplies.

Lawn Fawn Fairy Friends

I stamped the images from Lawn Fawn Fairy Friends and colored them with Copics. 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.

Avery Elle – Oh Happy Day!

Hello! I’m sharing a spring-themed card created with Avery Elle stamps and dies. It’s been cold and wintry here in the Pacific Northwest, so a little spring color appealed to me!

Avery Elle Happy Day

I stamped the various critters from Woodland Wonders and colored them with Copic markers. I used components from the Tree die set to create the tree, which I dry-embossed with a Stampin’ Up embossing folder. I curved the sentiment to fit one of the banner dies in the Pierced Banner Layers set. When I was finished assembling the scene, I felt there was too much blank sky, so I tucked in clouds cut with the Lawn Fawn Simple Puffy Cloud Frames set.
