Card | Creative Pop-Up Box

Hi everyone! Today I’m sharing with you a very creative take on the Mini Pop-Up Box die from Lawn Fawn. It does not look much like a box anymore, does it? When I saw the Keep on Swimming stamp set, this idea came to mind, and I just had to figure out how to do it.

For the ones interested, I created a video on the card making process. So in case you would like to try out this idea as well, make sure to check out the video on my channel. I have other video’s available too using the same die. And if you like my video’s, don’t forget to subscribe.

The main scene is on the inside of the card, with the cute cat staring at the fish in the bowl. I just love the sentiment “I can’t take my eyse off of you”, it cracks me up.

I also thought about the front of the card. This is gives the recipient an idea of what is inside the card, plus it holds the card shut, which is convenient when placed in an envelope.

I hope you liked this card and it gave you inspiration to use the mini pop-up box in multiple ways. Thanks for stopping by and see you next time!

Card | Llama Tell You …

Hi everyone! The card of today really puts the Llama from Lawn Fawn in the spotlight! It is a small stamp set, but I think the Llama is really cute and versatile. Today these Llama’s are going on a journey, are you joining them?

The Llama’s are stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink which is a copic friendly ink. I colored everything with my Copic Sketch markers and die cut them with the coordinating die. I die cut some grass from white cardstock and ink blended Distress Oxide Twisted Citron on it to give the grass a vibrant look.

As for the trees, these are from the Center Picture Window Add On die, and I die cut them from the Spring Fling pack and brown cardstock. The flowers are actually from the Gallery Frame die from Hello Bluebird. These give a nice finishing touch to the grass area. I die cut the flowers from the Spiffy Speckles and Spring Fling paper. For the sky I also used the Spiffy Speckles paper.

Then I paper pieced everything together, and popped up the Llama’s with foam squares. To frame the card, I used the Wonky Rectangles die from MFT.

And that finishes the card! I hope you like it and it gave you inspiration. Thanks for stopping by and see you next time!

Card | Happy Bee-Day!

Hi everyone! This is my first card ever using Hello Bluebird stamps! I bought a couple of sets a few weeks back, but haven’t had time to play with them earlier. They were on my wish list for a while already, but not that easy to get in The Netherlands. Anyway, now that I have them you’ll be seeing more cards in the next weeks featuring Hello Bluebird.

In this card I’m featuring the Bee Happy stamp set which I think is very cute! I started by stamping the images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored everything with my Copic Sketch markers. The colors I used: Y11, Y13, Y18, C9, C5, C3, C1, B00, BG10.

After all the coloring was done, I die cut the bees with the coordinating dies. To add shine to the eyes, I went over them with a 3d glaze gel pen and added white dots with a gel pen to make the eyes pop.

For the background I used a honeycomb stencil from a Dutch brand called Dutch Doobadoo. I blended Distress Ink Mustard Seed over the stencil for the hexagon pattern. The sentiment I stamped with Versamark ink on black cardstock and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. To frame the main scene I used pattern paper from the Spring Fling pack from Lawn Fawn.

And that finishes up the card! I hope you like it and it gave you inspiration. Thanks for stopping by and see you next time!

Card | Pirate Birthday

Hi everyone! The card of today is a pirate card! I have created it with the Ahoy, Matey stamp set from Lawn Fawn. This set is really versatile and also perfect if you need to create a card for a boy.

I started by stamping the images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink which is a copic friendly ink. I colored everything with my Copic Sketch markers and fussy cut the images.

For the sand I die cut Neenah Dessert Storm cardstock with the Stitched Hillside die from Lawn Fawn. I used the same die for the water which is die cut from the Spring Fling paper. For the sky I ink blended Distress Ink Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean over the MFT Cloud stencil.

For the final touches, I created texture in the sand with my copic markers. In the sky I stamped the sentiment ‘Happy Birthday’. And that finishes up the card! I hope you like it and it gave you inspiration. Thanks for stopping by and see you next time!

Card | MFT Picture Perfect Friendship

Hi Everyone! Here is another card with the Picture Perfect stamp set from MFT. I just could not wait to create another one. I kept the design basically the same af with my other card, but I used different colored cardstock.

First I stamped the cat and dog on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored them with Copic Sketch markers:

  • Cat: C1, C3, C5, C9, R22, R24, RV11
  • Dog: E31, E13, E39, R22, RV11, C3, C5, C9
  • Background: YG01, YG13

For the polaroid frame I used the Die-Namic from MFT called Polaroid Shaker Frame. To give it a bit of dimension, I adhered craft foam to the polaroid frame before adhering it on top of the cat and dog. To decorate the background, I trimmed cardstock from the Spring Fling paper pack from Lawn Fawn. I adhered the cardstock to the card base with double sided tape and then I put the image on top.

I hope you liked this card and it gave you some inspiration. Thanks for stopping by and see you next time!

Card |Colorful and Simple Butterfly Card

Hi Everyone! I hope you are having a great day. For the current Lawnfanatics challenge I decided to keep the design simple and really focus on the butterflies from the Butterfly Kisses stamp set.

First I stamped the butterflies with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with my copic markers. For the backgrounds I used pattern paper from the Spring Fling and Spiffy Speckles pack from Lawn Fawn.

To add more interest to the card, I put Wink of Stella over the butterflies and coated them in Glossy Accents. These two products together give the butterflies a nice shimmer, gloss, and dimension.

I hope you like this card and it gave you some inspiration.

Card | MFT Picture Perfect #instafamous

Hi Everyone! I am so excited I got my hands on the Picture Perfect stamp set from MFT. For some reason it was quite hard to get, but here it is! For the design of this card I was inspired by the MFT Sketch Challenge of this week. As I think the stamps are really adorable and large, the card design can be kept quite simple.

First I stamped the cats on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored them with Copic Sketch markers:

  • Grey cat: C1, C3, C5, R22, R24, R29, RV11, Y11, Y13, Y18
  • Brown cat: E31, E13, E39, R24, R22, RV11, C5
  • Background: B00, BG02, BG05

For the polaroid frame I used the Die-Namic from MFT called Polaroid Shaker Frame. To give it a bit of dimension, I adhered craft foam to the polaroid frame before adhering it on top of the cats. To decorate the background, I trimmed cardstock from the Spring Fling paper pack from Lawn Fawn. I adhered the cardstock to the card base with double sided tape and then I put the cats on top.

I did not make a video of this card process. But if you are interested in how I made this card, or you want to see how I did the copic coloring, just let me know.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
