Thank You from Lawn Fawn

I'm up on the Crafty Doodle Chick blog today with some fun Lawn Fawn products! Lawn Fawn is quickly becoming one of my favorite brands right now.

I used Lawn Fawn's 'Little Flowers' die set, soon to be back in stock at the
 Crafty Doodle Chick store.


I die cut the flowers and grass borders using Lawn Fawn's 'Really Rainbow' 6x6 paper pad.
I added some white detailing using a white gel pen.

I used a cloud stencil and distress ink to create the background and then stamped the sentiment using Lawn Fawn's 'Reveal Wheel Sentiments' stamp set.

A few enamel hearts finished the card off!

 

  
I am also entering this card into the current Lawnfawnatics challenge #31 - Flowers, Floral and Foliage.


Thanks for looking and don't forget to check out the Crafty Doodle Chick blog every day for lots of inspiration from the rest of the design team

Happy Crafting. x

Without further ado, let me share another one of the projects I created with this amazing kit.

I made a side folding A2 card using the kraft cardstock in the kit.

 I used the 'Happy Birthday' sentiment stamp from the set with Versamark Watermark ink on some kraft cardstock. I didn't add clear embossing powder this time, as i wanted a softer, more subtle look to the background. I love the tone-on-tone effect you get when you just use the watermark ink to create your own background. 

I cut this panel at an angle and adhered it to the copper shimmer cardstock from the kit. I added a thin strip to the base too. I added some of the copper colored brads from the kit and then adhered this onto a brown textured cardstock panel.

I stamped the Happy birthday sentiment onto some dark brown cardstock from the kit and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I then hand cut this into a banner shape. I felt it needed a border around it, but didn't want to use the copper cardstock again. I decided to use the tissue paper that the kit came wrapped in!!! Never throw anything away! This worked perfectly! I popped this banner up on foam tape to finish the card off.

Now, if you want to get your hands on this awesome kit, be sure to place your order by June 25th.  You don’t want to miss this one, I promise!

Without further ado, let me share another one of the projects I created with this amazing kit.

I made a top folding A2 card using the black cardstock in the kit.

 I cut out a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" panel using some of the gorgeous textured brown cardstock in the kit and adhered it to the black card base.

I stamped the ticket stamp onto the ivory and kraft cardstock in the kit, and then used the matching ticket die in the set to cut them out.

I cut out an ivory panel 4" x 2 1/2" and and stamped the sentiment from the set in the bottom right corner. I added the tickets to the top - ensuring they overlapped the top and side edges, popping a couple of them up on pop dots. I then trimmed them down to the edges of the panel. This was then adhered onto the textured brown background.

A super quick and easy card!

Now, if you want to get your hands on this awesome kit, be sure to place your order by June 25th.  You don’t want to miss this one, I promise!
Today is also the start of a brand new 'Anything Goes' challenge on the Whimsy Stamps Challenge Blog. Play along to win a $15 gift certificate to the Whimsy Store. Hope to see you there!

Cute Card Thursday - Sun, Sea or Sand

Our theme at Cute Card Thursday this week is 'Sun, Sea or Sand'. 
As always, we welcome your own interpretation. 

The decided to use this adorable stamp set from Gerda Steiner Designs - Pool Piggies - available at the Crafty Doodle Chick store.




I made these cards as swim coach gifts for the end of the High School swim season.

I stamped the images and colored them in with my prismacolor pencils. I used my Scan'n cut to cut them all out.

I used a variety of Doodlebug 6x6 paper pads and MFT's Blueprints #32 die-namics to design my cards. The sentiment was stamped using MFT's 'Geometric Greenery' stamp set.

We are sponsored this week by All Dressed Up Stamps, a great prize as always! 
Hope you can join us! See you there!

Thanks for looking!
Happy crafting

Happy Father's Day

It's my turn for the weekly post and some color inspiration for the current Paw-fect challenge - All About the Boys - on the Crafty Doodle Chick blog.



Another awesome stamp from Altenew - Trigonometry - available at the Crafty Doodle Chick store.

I wanted to give you a little inspiration for the current challenge (All About The Boys), which will end on Saturday 23 June 8pm EST. I have a color inspiration board for you to try out too if you feel this would be an added inspiration.


 I started by stamping the different triangles in colors matching the inspiration board. I used MFT 'insulation pink' and 'milk chocolate' hybrid ink cubes, along with 'gathered twigs, 'rusty hinge' and 'salty ocean' distress ink cubes.

I stamped the sentiment from Altenew 'Best Dad' stamp set using the 'gathered twigs' ink.

I added a thin strip of chocolate brown cardstock to break up the patterned paper from the sentiment, and added a little white gel pen stitching to this.

This panel was then adhered to a  chocolate brown card base.

You'll find these products in the Crafty Doodle Chick store:
