Happy Father's Day

Hey everyone, Deanna here with a new project for you from Dies R Us.

I made this card using the new Lawn Fawn Dad and Me stamp and die sets and the Stitched Mountain Borders Die set.  The Dad and Me stamp and die set is a great set to add to your supplies.  It can be used for many different masculine cards besides Father's Day.

To make my card, I started with a piece of watercolor card stock that I cut with the largest Memory Box Stitched Rectangle Die.  I used Tumbled Glass distress ink to create my sky and Mowed Lawn distress ink to create my grass.

Next I die cut my Stitched Mountain Borders Die set to create the mountains. I stamped the river from the Dad and Me stamp set along with the rocks. I also stamped the big bear and two of the little bears and colored them with my Zig Clean Clear Brush markers.  I added the glasses to the big bear.  Once I had all the coloring and die cutting done I assembled my card.  I made this card for my two grandson's to give to my husband for Father's Day.

Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful

Hey everyone. It is time for Challenge #11 over at 2 Creative Chicks.  Here is what I have for you today.



I started with a white card stock base cut and scored to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card base. I added a black mat cut at 4" X 5 1/4" then added my blue patterned paper which is cut at 3 3/4" X 5".

I then stamped a flower from the Hot of the Press Flower Frenzy stamp and die set with some Versamark Ink.  I added some blue embossing powder and used my heat tool to melt the powder. Next I die cut the flower out, and added a small rhinestone to the center of the flower.

I used the Memory box Gross grain ribbon die to cut two "ribbons" out of white card stock.  I added them to my card and then attached the flower.

My sentiment was stamped with Versamark ink and embossed with WOW! white embossing powder.

Now it is your turn, join us in this challenge and post your creation.

Let's Go Fly a Kite

Hi everyone, Deanna here with another fun card to get your creativity going.  Here is what I have for you today.



My project was created using the new Lawn Fawn Yay, Kites! stamp and die sets from Dies R Us.

My card base is white card stock that I cut and folded to make a 5" X 7" card base.  Next I cut some blue card stock for my sky.  The blue card stock was cut at 3 1/2" X 5".  For my lawn and grass I cut two pieces of green card stock at 3" X 5". I ran these two pieces through my Big Shot machine and cut them using the Lawn Fawn Simple Stitched Hillside Border Dies.  Next I took another piece of the green card stock that was about 1" X 5" and cut my grass using the Lawn Fawn Grassy Border Die.

Next I stamped, colored and die cut my images from Lawn Fawn Yay, Kites!.  I decided to use the Hello sentiment as a kite string held by the bunny.  Just an FYI, the Lawn Fawn Big Scripty Words stamps and dies can also be used as kite strings or just as a sentiment.  To finish my card I added some different colored sequins to look like little flowers growing in the grass.

Look for the Miracles

Hey everyone Deanna here with another fun and inspiring project for you.

To make my card, I started with a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" white card base that I rounded the corners on.  Next I took a piece of watercolor card stock and using Squeezed Lemonade, and Tumbled Glass distress Ink, I created a background for my sentiment. After stamping the sentiment I took one of the Open Studio Memory Box Stitched Circle Dies and cut the sentiment out.  I love the Open Studio Stitched Dies, you get a wide variety of sizes and they are stored on a magnetic sheet.  Be sure to check them out in the store.

Next I die cut my flowers out using the Poppystamp Flower Stack Die. For my leaves, I again took some watercolor card stock and used the Tumbled Glass and Squeezed Lemonade and mixed them together to get my green.  I cut the leaves out using the Impression Obsession Leafy Branch Die.  After I cut the branches out, I cut them apart to fit my card.  To finish the card I added some sequins to the circle and some Wink of Stella to the flower centers.

We Flamin-go Together

Hey everyone, Deanna here with a fun project using the recently released dies from Lawn Fawn.  I used the new Flamingo Together Dies and stamps.  Here is what I have for you.




I started by stamping out the flamingos on watercolor paper.  I colored the flamingos with my Zig Clean Color Clear Brush Markers..  Next I stamped the palm trees and the trunks of the trees using Rich Cocoa and Cottage Ivy Memento ink.

Now it was time to bring out the dies..  Using the dies from the Flamingo Together die set, I cut out the trees, trunks and the Flamingos.

My sun rays are from a piece of patterned paper by Bo Bunny.  I cut my waves from an older die I had on hand. However, Impression Obsession has a great wave die you can use.  I used the Lawn Fawn Simple Stitched Hillside border dies to create my sand. I inked the edges of my "sand" using some Old Paper distress Ink.

After adhering all of my pieces together I attached it to a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" white card stock card base.  I then stamped my sentiment from the stamp set with some Memento Rich Cocoa ink.

Sunny Day Crafting Challenge #8

It's time for a new challenge over at a Sunny Day Crafting blog.  This challenge is based on this picture.   Isn't it cute?
This is what I came up with based on the picture.

My card is a standard A2 card base made from white card stock.  I added a Kraft colored mat cut at 5 3/8" X 4 1/8".  The ice cream patterned paper is from Bo Bunny and is cut at 5 1/4" X 4". The little puppy is from a Miss Kate's Cuttables file.  I cut the puppy at 3 1/2".  The ice cream cone is from the Sweet Shop Cricut cartridge and was cut at 1".  I had so much fun making this card. 

Now it is your turn. Be sure and link up a project over at a Sunny Day Crafting that your inspiration comes from the photo.  You could do so many things with the photo inspiration.  You could do a project with just a puppy, or just a little girl, or both.  You could do a project about being in a park. Or pick one of the highlighted colors and do a project that features that color.  That is what I love about this Challenge Blog. Lots of freedom to create what you want.
