Lawn Fawn Beehive Cards!

 Hello Crafty Friends and welcome! I have two cards for you today, both which use Lawn Fawn's Magic Iris Beehive Add-On. 


A good friend of mine gave me Lawn Fawn's Hive Five stamp set with coordinating dies for my birthday and I thought today would be a good day to finally use it. I decided to make two different but similar cards, one just a flat card and one using the Magic Iris. 

For my first card, I started with an A2 sized card base using heavy weight smooth black cardstock. 

I added a piece of patterned paper which I die cut using MFT - A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX in the largest sized stitched die. 

I then used Lawn Fawn's Magic Iris Add-On and die cut it from heavy weight smooth white cardstock. Then, using MFT - Mini Clouds stencil and Distress Ink in Peacock Feathers, I created a cloud background. 

I die cut the bee hive from the same heavy weight smooth white cardstock and colored it in using Copic markers. 

I die cut all the pieces that go along with the Magic Iris Beehive Add-On from the same cardstock and colored them again with Copic markers. 

I die cut all the mechanisms for the Magic Iris and put the mechanism together. Then I die cut the inner circle from black cardstock and stamped a sentiment on it using Lawn Fawn's Magic Messages. 
Lastly, I stamped the sentiment on the bottom of the card, using Lawn Fawn's Hive Five stamp set. 

For my second card, I did the same thing with this bee hive as I did with the first card. 

I added a different sentiment in the centre of the beehive, using the same Magic Messages stamp set.

Then, on a piece of heavy weight smooth white cardstock, I stamped all the images using Lawn Fawn's Hive Five stamp set. 

I colored all the images using Copic markers. Then I die cut all the images using the coordinating dies. 

I added Glossy Accents to the honey pots and Stickles Glitter Gel in Diamond to the wings of the bees. 

How cute are those little bees!! I really like this stamp set and love even more the Beehive Add-On!! Please see below for the list of supplies I used in this card. Thank you so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

Barnyard Birthday Card!

Hello Crafty Friends and welcome! I recently was in a zoom meeting with the Karen Burniston Design Team and one of my fellow designers mentioned how she missed all the different card making challenges there use to be. It got me thinking, why not make my own challenge! So I closed my eyes and reached into my Karen Burniston die collection and grabbed one. Then I did the same with my collection of animals/add-ons and such. I ended up pulling out the Little Twist Panel Pop-Up and the Cow and Goat dies. So I made this super fun Barnyard Birthday card!


 I will defiantly be giving myself a challenge every week because this was fun! I started my card with an A2 sized top fold card base, from Ground Coffee cardstock from Lawn Fawn. I dug through my stash of patterned paper and found this great farm themed paper to use for my background. 

I die cut the pop-up mechanism using a light weight smooth white cardstock, then I die cut all the pieces I needed for the pop-up, using various scraps of the same farm themed paper. I die cut the two scalloped rectangles from heavy weight smooth white cardstock and added a blue sky and grass using Distress Oxide Ink in Mowed Lawn and Distress Ink in Peacock Feathers. I also used my Grass Stencil from MFT to create the grass. 

I then die cut the cow and goat from Karen Burniston's Cow and Goat die set using heavy weight smooth white cardstock and colored them in using Copic markers. 

I also die cut the barn from the Barn Pop-Up and I used the Farm Edges to add a fence behind the barn and the chicken fence at the bottom. On the barn, I added wood panels and lines using a white pencil crayon. 

I die cut a shape to add a place to sign the card and stamped a sentiment on it using MFT - The Whole Herd stamp set. 

For the front of the card, I carried over the paper theme and again added a stamped sentiment from the same stamp set. 

This time I used the chicken and pig from the Chicken, Pig and Lamb die set. I die cut these from heavy weight smooth white cardstock and colored them in with Copic markers. 

This was so much fun to create! You should try it yourselves! Just reach into your stash and pull out the first thing you grab and have fun!

Thank you so much for stopping by today and Happy Crafting! Also be sure to check out my YouTube channel for my latest how to video on how to create three different cats using Karen Burniston's Cat and Dog die set!!

Karen Burniston Designer Challenge - June 2024 - Borders, Borders, Borders!!

 Hello Crafty Friends and welcome! It's Designer Challenge time once again and our challenge this month was Borders, Borders, Borders! We had to use some (or all if you want to get really creative!) of Karen Burniston's fantastic border dies! For my card, I used the Baking and Kitchen Borders along with the Oven Pop-Up!


For this card, I started with an A2 sized card base using Ground Coffee cardstock by Lawn Fawn. I then used a some great patterned paper from Echo Park called Celebrate Autumn for the wallpaper background. I used a wood/brick patterned paper pack I got from Michaels for the floor. 

I then began die cutting all the pieces I needed for the Oven Pop-Up. I also used the Oven Extras for my card as well. To see how this goes together, Karen Burniston has a wonderful assembly video which you can watch here. Once I had my oven assembled, I began die cutting the extra pieces for my little kitchen. I used the Kitchen Borders to create the frying pan with the egg and the toaster. 

I die cut two pie borders from the Baking Borders and created cherry, pumpkin, blueberry and peach pies for my borders. I die cut these from smooth white cardstock and colored them in with Copic markers. I added Glossy Accents to all the pies but pumpkin to add some extra dimension to them. 

I die cut the Happy Birthday sentiment from Word Set 2 - Birthday using a shiny black cardstock. I also die cut a small rectangle using the small scalloped die from the Little Twist Panel Pop-Up, so that the card could be signed. 

For the front of the card, I kept the same theme, adding another pie border. I used the Circle - Crosshatch die set to create a sentiment centre on my card. 

I used the Mini Alphabet and Numbers to die cut the word "Apple". I also used several Word Set dies to create the sentiment "You're The" and "of my pie". I will list these below. 

I added the rolling pin borders from the Baking Borders, die cutting them from smooth white cardstock and coloring them in with Copic markers.

I just love how my card turned out. Those pies make me want to get in my kitchen and start baking! Thank you so much for stopping by today and Happy Crafting!!
