Smile

Doni here today with a card that I hope will make you SMILE!
 

 One of the tips  I have for you today is: Never throw away interesting scraps!

Even though I've cut many things from this paper already...I still found room to cut the Smile!
(paper made with distress ink smooshed on glossy paper)

Another tip is to layer dies cuts together for added dimension, in this case I used 4 layers.

Notice how the dots from the i are stuck on some removable tape, believe me those 
 little stinkers can just up and disappear on you!!!

To finish this card all I had to do was cut a panel from some pretty rainbow paper
add it to a Black A2 size card base, add the " Smile" and finish it off with a sentiment strip 
that I white heat embossed on black paper.

This is what I used to make this card:
Impression Obsession - Dies - Smile 
 
Zig 2-Way Glue Pen - Squeeze & Roll

Flower Vase Friendship Card

Hello, fellow crafters!  It's Julie with you today.  I tend to like my cards simple, but bold, and today's card follows that theme.

Dies, distress oxide inks, some pearl accents, and it's a wrap.  Sounds like a great card, right?  You be the judge:



Bright and bold, right?  Here's how I did it, and the products I used (linked at the end of this post).

I used a vase and flower die for Die-Namites, and 6 shades of Distress Oxide ink, plus a word die.


I started by blending the background.  I have found that a very smooth card stock works best for me.  I started with the lightest colors first.  In this case, it was the middle of the card, so it was the Squeezed Lemonade, then the Mustard Seed, the the Twisted Citron, then the Salty Ocean.  After that, I switched back to the lower part of the card, blending the Barn Door, and lastly, the Seedless Preserves.

The background was so colorful, that I decided to leave the Wide Vase die cut in white.  I liked the contrast of it against all the colors of the background.  I wanted a simple sentiment that wouldn't overpower the Wide Vase, so used this "Friends" from Elizabeth Craft, cutting it with a card stock that matched a color from the background.  Then, all I had to do was construct the card and add some pearl accents with my Ice White Viva Decor Pearl Pen.

I've had a large collection of Viva Decor Pearl Pens for years and I love them!  There are newer products on the market, but Viva Decor Pearl Pens work great.  It is very easy to control how large the dot of color is, the colors are rich and pure, and there is a lot of product in one pen.  The Dies R Us Store has a limited supply right now, but I hope they re-stock soon because they are one of my favorite supplies in the whole store!  If you haven't tried them, I hope you do.  Dies R Us also offers one of the lowest prices on these Pearl Pens that I've seen. 


Products used from the Dies R Us Store:






Seedless Preserves

That's it for my Flower Vase Friendship Card.  I hope you visit this blog each day to see the wonderful designs my fellow teammates create.  There is so much inspiration here!  Then, make your own creation and enter the Dies R Us Challenge Blog.  There are great prizes you can win!

New York Themed Cards

Hi everyone, Steph back with another project for Dies R Us.
I've created 2 New York themed cards in a red, white and blue pallet.


Using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Dies, I die cut red and blue cardstock as well as assorted pattern papers to create both cards.


The layers were assembled and added to the cards, one being white and one being red.


I inked a tag shaped stamp with assorted shades of VersaFine Clair Ink, then fussy cut it.  I reinked the stamp and created a second tag.  Each tag were matted with 2 colors of cardstock which were also fussy cut before assembling.


Twine, similar to that found in the store, was added to each tag and each tag was then adhered to a card with 3D foam squares.


Sentiments were stamped with red ink, matted with cardstock and added to each tag.


Dies R Us supplies used:


Lawn Fawn - Stitched Rectangle Frames Dies



VersaFine Clair Ink Pad - Tulip Red
VersaFine Clair Ink Pad - Blue Belle

Thermoweb - 3D Foam Squares - White .25" 176/Pkg

Sea You Soon | Lawn Fawn and Elizabeth Craft



Hi Friends! Kristina here today with a scene card showcasing some Lawn Fawn stamps and dies, with help from scene building border dies from Elizabeth Craft. I love the versitility of the Adventure Edge dies, you can make beaches, grass, mountains, waves, clouds, and any mix and match combination you can think of! I went with a beach scene.


The Process

  • I started with an a2 sized card front in a light blue sky color, and built the scene from the "ground up" cutting the beach, waves, and clouds and piecing them all together. 
  • Next I stamped, colored, and die cut several of the images from the Lawn Fawn Mermaid for You stamp set, and arranged them around the background to create my scene.
  • Once I had the placement down, I stamped my sentiment in the open space.
  • I thought it needed a little something more so I added a die cut frame around the whole scene.
  • To finish, I added some clear nuvo drops and of course, some shimmer pen accents around the card.


Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great weekend!

Seas the Day

Happy Wednesday all you crafting friends!  Kristina Hein with you today to share a water themed shadow box card.

Here is the front.


Here is the back.


When I finally got my hands on the Shadow Box Ocean Add-On from Lawn Fawn, I knew I needed to make a shadow box card.  I have had the Shadow Box die from Lawn Fawn for quite awhile but I had never actually used it.  This seemed like the time!

There are SO many great Ocean Box cards out there and I wanted something just a little bit different.  I decided that all of my elements would be cut out of patterned paper!  The only solid cardstock I used is for the navy "box" portion of the card.  Everything else is cut from my stash of Lawn Fawn and Doodlebug paper pads.

First step is to cut out two panels from the navy cardstock to make the box.  The box portion is from the original Shadow Box die set from Lawn Fawn.  The scalloped rectangle cut out is from the Ocean Add-On set.


Next I cut out the waves.  These are part of the Ocean Add-On set.


Then I inked up the edges of the waves with Distress Inks.  I used Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Peacock Feathers and Chipped Sapphire.  I also used Ocean Waves Accent dies to add a few more details on the waves.


Next I cut out all of the little elements I wanted to use.  The shark is from the Sea Animals set from Karen Burniston, Sea Horses from Seahorsin' Around from Lawn Fawn, and the Ocean Add-on set.  I did use some Distress Inks on these pieces as well.  Worn Lipstick, Wild Honey, Mowed Grass, Hickory Smoke and Peeled Paint.


Now I started to put the box together.  I did sponge white ink around the scalloped opening before I started adding in the waves.



Then I started adding the pieces.


Here is a top down view where you can see the wave layers.


I just used liquid glue to add all of the elements where I wanted them and it looked like this:




And it does fold flat to fit inside an A2 envelope!


The banner is from the Ocean Add-On die set and the sentiment is from the On the Beach stamp set.  Thanks for coming along on my mini ocean journey!
