Merry Christmas to all and an Avery Elle Wreath Christmas Card…

Merry Christmas everyone! I have some Christmas cards to share still!  We always have our family Christmas on Christmas Eve day so today is a clean up/crash kind of day!  I remembered I still have some cards to post.  If you’re like me, you never get tired of looking at cards, no matter the season! lol

The four cards today are from an Avery Elle stamp and die set.  I’ll link up the products below.  I stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, using the MISTI stamping tool.  Colored with Copic Sketch markers.  I just love coloring in reds and greens!  I think I used R43 and 46 and YG63 and 67 for these.

Changed up the background on this one…

I love using the negative strips after die cutting this background…link below.  I did this on the first/top card too.

I love how these all came out and mailable too! yay!

Hope you all are having a wonderful Christmas season and getting handmade cards in the mail too! I love getting mail! hehe

Thanks for stopping by today! All the best to you and yours!

A Lawn Fawn Jungle Birthday Pop Up Box…

Hello everyone! A wild birthday card for you today!  This is the pop up box card die from Lawn Fawn that is so much fun! I forgot to take pictures of it folded up before I gave it to Gilbert Sunday. ugh.  It truly does fold, lay flat and fit in an A2 size envelope!

So much fun for a little color book therapy and then a chance to use a big piece of that pattern paper hoard!  I should make more of these! I can’t resist buying pattern paper but I have a hard time working it into the card design most of the time.

I used Lawn Fawn’s Wild For You stamp and die sets, Box Card pop up die set, Rectangle die, grass die and the words ‘rawr’ and ‘wish big’ came from the Critters from the Past stamp set. Almost forgot the balloons!  They are from the Bicycle Built for You stamp set.

The images were all stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink in the MISTI stamping tool and then colored with Copic Sketch Markers. Very basic coloring.

The pattern paper is Lawn Fawn’s 12 x 12 size, Perfectly Plaid Rainbow Collection.

Gibby liked it!  YAY…he was so excited for his 5th birthday and he loved his presents too!  It was so hot…they’d been swimming!  lol  He’s just one of our many red heads!  ❤

Addicted To CAS Challenge – One Layer Card…

I’m so excited to be a guest designer over on the Addicted to CAS Challenge blog today! I love CAS, coloring and dies so I really enjoyed this! Thank you for having me ladies!

The challenge this week is One Layer!  I hope you’ll join us!

 

I decided to make a one layer die cut inlay card using My Favorite Things Beach Scene Builder Die-namics set and Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables dies.  All the pieces are cut from an A2 size white card-stock panel, inked with Distress ink and the ink blending tools, fit together like a puzzle, taped together on the back and adhered to an A2 card base.

 

I did go back in with Distress Markers to accent the embossed lines of the Palm Tree die cut.

The sentiment is from Printworks Collection E4730 Escape the Ordinary.  If you love beach images…you have to see what all PW has…lots of fun images and sentiments.  Check out the releases HERE.

The cutie little crab is from Lawn Fawn Palm Trees die set. I die cut two and glued them together at the very tip of it’s claws.  Pretty cute little photo prop! hehe

Simon Says Stamp Happy Swimmers Birthday Card…

I love these cute characters from Simon Says Stamp!  This is the Happy Swimmers stamp and die set, out of stock right now though. I linked it anyway. You can always sign up to get notified when it comes back in stock.  The sun die is from Lawn Fawn, the waves from My Favorite Things and the sand from Taylored Expressions but I’m linking you up to the poppystamps Stitched Landscape die set.  The sentiment is from another Simon Says Stamp set called Happy Block Greetings. Don’t shoot me!  It looks like it’s discontinued!  I just got it not that long ago.  Sorry about that. HERE is another cute set though…

Just a fun, cute card for Gena who’s turning 10 this month!  Doesn’t seem possible! She’s still a little girl at heart though and she loves hugs from Grandma, making cards, her chicks and kittens!  Oh and swimming! lol

Stopping to say “HI” CAS card today with Lawn Fawn…

Hi everyone…doesn’t this just make you want to run out and get a watermelon?!  Fortunately Tim already stopped and bought one this week so we’re set!

I used the Lawn Fawn alphabet die set Quinn’s Capital ABC’s.  I die cut it in white Bazzil texture cardstock, removed the letters H and I and inked them with Distress Inks and the ink blending tool.  Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, Picked Raspberry and Festive Berries were the pads I used.  I added the seeds with a Ranger Fude Ball Black ink pen.

I adhered the die cut panel to an A2 top folding card base, then I adhered the watermelon HI with mounting tape.  Happy Card!  Well, until I sent my husband a picture of the card and he replied, “why is the w upside down”?  So I might think twice before I send him a picture again! haha  This was my Summer swap card for stamp club yesterday.

Memory Box, Lawn Fawn and Stampin Up cards…

Hi everyone!  I’m back today with 3 cards to share.  This first one features a sky writin’ airplane from the Flying High Stamp set!  So cute…colored it with Copic Sketch markers. The clouds are from the coordinating Flying High die set. I just used the cloud dies from the set without stamping them.

The background is the new Cool Cloud Collage die.  So many ‘cool’ ways to use it!

The banners are the new Birthday Pennant die…I die cut in white card-stock and colored with a few of the T series Copic Sketch markers.

Next up is a scene that I started when these stamps came out…I just ‘unearthed’ it on one of my desks I was cleaning off.  It just needed colored and put together!  yay

I fell in love with this You Make Life Fun stamp set and coordinating die set. The grass is inked with Peeled Paint Distress ink and the ink blending tool and the sky is inked with Tumbled Glass and Broken China Distress ink and the ink blending tool. (I must’ve used another green ink on the grass too because Peeled Paint is a better green than this. lol  Next time I’ll use Mowed Lawn!)

I colored the images with Copic Sketch Markers… so easy and fun… click on the pictures to see it full size.  This card fits in a business size A10 envelope.

I love these cute new cloud dies!  I stamped the sentiment on the front with Lawn Fawn Walnut ink in the MISTI stamping tool.

(what a crazy day for the AC to not work at the library where we meet!)  Everyone was a good sport about it and fortunately they were able to provide us with two fans!  There always has to be drama you know! lol  Anyway, we’re trying to get Louise to start a blog cuz her cards are beautiful!

Thank you again Jan for the fabulous program!  We appreciated it!

That’s it for today!  Thank you so much for stopping by and reading my post! I always smile thinking of you all and wishing we could all meet for a stamp club!  Now that would be awesome! (wild! lol)
