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!  ❤

Colorful Rainbow cards to share today…

Hi everyone!  Two clean and simple cards I made for stamp club last Friday.  Annette had the program and she had rainbow for the theme.  These are the two cards I made…one to swap and one for Annette’s birthday card.

I used the poppystamps paintbrush die, colored with Copic Sketch Markers, a Taylored Expressions brush rubber stamp, You color my world is from a new poppystamps stamp set, inked with Versafine Black Onyx ink and stamped with the MISTI.  I stamped the brush stamp with Regular Distress Inks.  I centered the stamp on the lid of the MISTI and moved the card to stamp the different colors.  I did stamp each color two and three times to get the bold color.

Both cards are A2 top folding card bases, almost one layer!

The bike is a new Spellbinders die cut in heavy white card-stock…run it through with the tan mat a second time so it embosses nicely.

The street and the stitched rectangle are from a MFT blueprints die set, the butterflies are an old Marvy punch…sorry I didn’t have time to look for a die but I’ll see if I can find something similar to link to and the sentiment is from Paper Smooches.

Thanks for stopping by on this fine Tuesday!  I’ll be back soon with more of you know what! lol  Have a creative, colorful week!

Two boy birthday cards…

Hi everyone!  How’s your end of Summer going? I keep getting sidetracked! lol  Trying to make more room here and there and clearing out stuff but really not ending up with that much more room!  Why?!  I think I’m pretty good at it! lol Oh well….I’ll keep trying.

And the other thing…how come if you use one scrap it seems like two more appear! lol

This is Corrin’s birthday card for this year… He turned 8 years old!  and yes, he is a cute blonde…that Summer bleached blonde funky hair cut kind of boy, concerned about the frogs etc. lol

I linked up to this stamp below but it’s discontinued…sorry about that but I have to use my stash too and I have to show you anyway cuz it’s a cute card! lol

I stamped him with Tuxedo Black ink, colored him with Copic Sketch Markers and cut him out by hand but hey, I got a really good deal on a Scan n Cut 350 machine and I really like it you guys!!!  Shirley has been telling me about it and you know how we influence each other!!!  Thank you Shirley! lol  So next time, I’m cutting these bad boys and anything else I don’t have the dies for, with this new toy!  I cut out some digital images and the granddaughters cut out some hand drawn images with it.  Gena’s clouds were super cute!

Here’s a picture of the digital images I cut out with it…

ok – back to birthday cards…

This is Henry’s birthday card for this year…he turned 11!!!  Doesn’t seem possible!  He loves games! He’s great driving the gator around too, mowing the lawn and loves to read.

Shoot me now! lol  This is another die set that is discontinued and so is the stamp set. boo.  The die set is called Game Controller and the stamp set is called Level Up, both by My Favorite Things…so don’t be mad at me! lol

I saw a card made up when I googled the stamp name,  I loved it so I made it very similar to Elaine’s!  Thank you Elaine for the inspiration!

Both boys liked their cards!  yay!  June and July are both big birthday months for our family…September we have 3 so a few weeks break from birthday cards!

Although, I made a card, copied myself, that a friend requested for her aunt’s 90th birthday.  She started dairy farming when she was 50 yrs old!  Click on over to my Instagram to see a super short video of it. I put the tractor on a wobble this time.  Guaranteed to make you smile!

Thanks so much for stopping by stamping friends!  I appreciate it so much!

I’m trying out the new LinkDeli links today…a trial to see if they will work on a wordpress.com blog….so click away! lol Pretty sure it won’t blow up! lol

MFT Warm and Fuzzy Birthday card…

Hi and welcome to a beautiful Summer’s eve campfire! This set is so cute, can’t believe it’s the first time I’ve used it.  The kids have used it but me, I’m the last one!  Now it’s retiring but we know there’s always more cute coming… You can still find it HERE and the dies HERE…hurry if you want them!

This was our grandson Cedryk’s 5th birthday card.  They live in the country and at night they’ll go visit the cows in the gator… the cows love to come talk to Cedryk! lol  Actually Ced talks to them and they listen!  lol

I used Distress Oxide inks for the sky and grass ink blendingwater dripped on and dabbed off for the faint spots in the sky.  Puffy cloud dies, you can find them HERE.

So cute!  Love that little hedgie!  I colored the images with Copic Markers on MFT  Sweet Tooth Card stock.  I have a little trouble with the copics bleeding on it but I like how easy it blends. A basic A2 size card.

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

Memory Box Graceful Cattails, Dragonfly Stems and Tall Grassy Stems Corners…

Monday greetings everyone! Back with a masculine birthday card…very Summer-ish!

I had fun playing with the Distress Oxide inks again on Mixed Media card-stock.  I blended the ink on with the ink blending tool and then spritzed it with a mister bottle of water.

At first I didn’t like it so it’s taken me a few weeks to finish this.  I’m glad I persevered! lol  Always nice to have a man card in the stash!

I used the following dies…the Dragonfly Stems Corners are layered on top of the Grassy Stems Corners.

Graceful Cattails

Dragonfly Stems Left Corner

Tall Grassy Stems Left Corner

Dragonfly Stems Right Corner

Tall Grassy Stems Right Corner

Scribble Happy Birthday

I die cut everything from Mixed Media Card-stock and colored them except for the happy birthday sentiment.  I cut it from black 2mm craft foam and black card-stock. I glued the card-stock cuts to the foam and then glued them to the card after I assembled all the scene pieces.

This ended up a little over a 5 ½ inch square card. I get my square envelopes HERE.
