Interactive Mini Album

it was so much fun to create this little album even if i did make a big mess. the current LAWN FAWNATICS CHALLENGE 58 is INTERACTIVE so i had to be creative with their products since i don’t have many of their interactive dies.

mini album

i used lawn fawn’s spring fling papers, the LF Stitched Gift Card Pocket to create the pocket fronts and the front flap shape and a variety of embellishments all listed at the end of this post.

i used the LF Tag You’re It die to cut the pages, trimming off the top portion and turning them upside down. i used random cute images and painted them with twinkling H2Os on hot pressed watercolour paper.

the lemons were fussy cut and the chipmunk masked to allow for splatters.

i used a silver glitter pen on the flute and a clear gloss pen on the horn.

the floral card opens up and this is the inside:

the flap was sponged with distress ink and opens to reveal these little cuties, fussy cut, along with the log and two yellow flowers cut from the paper:

the album closes with a small magnet.

i’m also playing along with Scrapy Land Challenge #119 and its anything goes theme using dies sold at their store.

i made another card for the current LAWN FAWNATICS CHALLENGE 55 MOOD BOARD & COLOUR INSPIRATION:

look who’s peeking out! i cut around the door with a kraft knife and added a piece of paper from the lawn fawn spring fling paper pad behind the door opening.

i’ve been having fun with the lawn fawn happy trails stamp set so this time i created a 3 inch card, painted with twinkling H2Os and added these cute little critters from the LF smooth sailing stamp set. everything was fussy cut, a challenge in itself with my RA hands so after i finished the card, i ordered the coordinating die set. then i’ll be a happy camper. i know.

i sponged distress inks: peacock feathers for the sky and twisted citron for the grass, cut with LF stitched hills die set. i stamped the sentiment from the LF oh what fun stamp set and stamped two suns from the LF so much to say stamp set so i could layer it.

You Drive Me Happy

the current LAWN FAWNATICS CHALLENGE 55 MOOD BOARD & COLOUR INSPIRATION is full of summer items and bright colours.

summer camping card in bright colours

i painted the car and trailer from the Lawn Fawn happy trails stamp set with tombow markers bright set on hot press watercolour paper, cut with coordinating dies and added glossy accents to the windows. i stamped the line markings on grey cardstock and masked the two sentiments from the happy trails set to create this one. the sky was created with nuance powders and cold press watercolour paper and die cut clouds from the into the woods die set. to finish my card, i popped the vehicles on foam tape.

i’m also playing along with these challenges:
Little Red Wagon  #503 – Not About a Specific Event (this is an everyday card for my husband)
Addicted to Stamps and More #347- Make Your Mark (tombow markers)

Hip Hip Hooray!

i couldn’t be more proud of my daughter for earning her second degree; this is a spinning graduation cap tag i created to attach to a gift for her graduation party.graduation spinning cap tagi painted the lawn fawn smart cookie stamp graduation cap with my favourite black watercolour paint from sennelier and purple paint for the tassel then used the coordinating die.

i die cut two lawn fawn stitched circle tags: one from the spring fling paper pad and one white cardstock for the back that i stamped with ‘you’re one smart cookie’ from the smart cookie stamp set.

the slide on over circle die set was used for the interactive element; i stamped the sentiment from the tiny tag saying birthday stamp set, and layered with three pieces of yellow foam to create the channel. some of the foam needs to be trimmed from the edges to allow room for the penny/disc to move and spin the cap as it travels along the channel.

i’m playing along with the current LAWN FAWNATICS CHALLENGE 54 – PERFECT FOR PARTIES.

Are We There Yet?

i’m playing along with the LAWN FAWNATICS CHALLENGE 53 – SPECTACULAR SKIES.

campers at dusk; remember those long road trips?

i used 140 lb. cold press watercolour paper for lawn fawn’s stitched hillside border and sky; i swiped wild honey and worn lipstick distress inks on craft mat, spritzed with water and pressed the paper into it to create my background. lawn fawn’s happy trails images were stamped on 140 lb. hot press w/c paper and painted with my new daniel smith watercolour paints that i treated myself to; for years i’ve painted with twinkling H2Os so i need more play time to get used to these.

the hill was popped on foam tape, as were a couple of the trees and the vehicles. to finish it off, i cut a strip of paper that was sponged with black soot distress ink and i added the lines with a white gel pen.

i’m also playing along with the anything goes theme at Simon Says Wednesday.

Pair of Penguins For Rudolph Days

it’s time for the monthly rudolph days challenge at maureen’s (scrappymo) blog, where we encourage you to create christmas projects.

penguin christmas card in blue

i used two different colour schemes to create two similar cards but made a feminine and masculine version.

i painted the elizabeth craft designs penguins with twinkling H2Os, used the coordinating die, and finished the card with these lawn fawn products: merry die, mini snowflakes die and christmas sentiment stamped in white.

the deadline to enter your christmas project is the end of the month, plus you’d be entered in a draw for a fabulous prize so why not play along?
