Sending ( A Lotl) Love & Hugs...


Hello everyone!! Happy Wednesday. Mayra here with you today. I have this sweet card to share with you. I used the adorable I Like You (Alotl) stamp set from Lawn Fawn. 


I began my card by die cutting the base panels for my card. I used the XOXO Backdrop die for the top layer. To create the sandy areas, I used the Slimline Stitched Hillside Border dies, the heart in the center is from the Outside In Stitched Heart Stackables set, and the banner is from the Simple Wavy Banners set. 


Next, I added the colors to my ocean scene using Blue Jay and Fish Tank Lawn Fawn Premium Dye Ink. I really love the brightness of these colors. Then, I added color to the sandy areas using Brushed Corduroy and Gathered Twigs Distress Inks. 


I then chose the images I would use to create the scene. I used the I Like You (Alotl), Special Delivery Box Add-on (hearts from this set), Ocean Shell-fie, Stud Puffin (part of the sentiment), Keep On Swimming, You Are Sublime, Mermaid For You, and All the Clouds(part of the sentiment also). I colored the images using Copic markers. For the pink, I used R000, R01, R21, E93, YR000, and YR00. For the yellow, Y11, Y08, Y19, and YR24. For the blue, B21, B93, and B95

After coloring all of the images, I assembled the card. I had fun creating this card to share with you. Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by. I pray you each have a wonderful and blessed day. Please feel welcome to visit me on my blog, Instagram, or Pinterest

Hello from Toni: Miss You Pig Time!


Hello, everyone!  For today's card I'm using the Honey Bee Bad Influence set which happens to be in the Year End Deals section of the shop so grab it while you can!


For the card front I cut out the Lawn Fawn Polka Heart Portrait Backdrop out of  Honey Bee Holiday Cheer 6x6 Paper. I happened to have coordinating cardstock for the card base but could have easily used Distress Oxide Worn Lipstick on it instead.


I used the Lawn Fawn Picket Fence Border with a quick schmear of Distress Oxide Vintage Photo to create the pig pen.

To finish off the card, I added the HB sentiments (I highly recommend the coordinating dies since they cut out the words so well) and the Lawn Fawn Candy Heart.


I'll see you again soon.  If you'd like to check out my other creations in the meantime, you can visit my blog, Frankie Helps Craft, my Instagram, or my Pinterest Board.

Happy Anniversary...

Hello everyone!!! Happy January 2021!!! I am so happy to be here with my first post for the New Year!!! I created an extra special card today. It is a card for my husband to celebrate our wedding anniversary. I used the bears from the adorable Snow Much Fun stamp set. I used the bears because he is a huge Chicago Bears fan, that is why I used the navy and orange colors for my card. 


I began by die cutting the pieces I used to create my card. I used the heart from the Center Picture Window Card Heart Add-On to create the pop-up heart in the center of the inside of the card. I also used the letters from Oliver's Stitched ABC's to spell out the word 'Beary', the small banner from the Flippin' Awesome die set, the Center Picture Window Add-On,  the Center Picture Window Card,  the Candy Hearts die to create the little shaker hearts. I also used the Lacy Hearts Stackables along with the Outside In Stitched Heart Stackables. I die cut the heart from the  Outside In Stitched Heart Stackables set twice, I created a flip-up feature to reveal the shaker candy heart on the inside of it. 


I also used the windows from the Build A House die set, I layered them onto a piece of navy blue cardstock. I then added accents using a white gel pen. I added a bit of color to the die-cut orange hearts by using Distress Oxide inks in Spiced Marmalade and Ripe Persimmon


I then colored the bears using Copic markers. The colors I used were E81, E41, E42, E43, E44, E47, and R22. I used several stamp sets to create the sentiment on the front of the card and for the inside. I used Open MeSewn With Love, You're Clawsome, Special Delivery Box Add-On, and Special Delivery.  I hope you enjoy the card I created to share with you today. Thank you so much for stopping by. I pray you each have a wonderful and blessed day. Please feel welcome to visit me on my blog, Instagram, or Pinterest

Hello from Toni: Avery Elle Rawr


Hi, everyone.  Today I have a really fun and cute birthday card to share with you.  Good timing since I have about a bezillion birthday cards to plan for this month. Eek!


I lightly sponged the card base with Distress Oxide Salty Ocean.  Then I stamped the Sunny Studio Tropical Scene image, using it as water. I also stamped and colored the vines from that set.


I stamped a bunch of the Avery Elle Rawr images and colored them up with Copics.  I think adding dots and lots of shading to the dinos really makes them pop.


To finish the card, I stamped and embossed the AE Rawr sentiment onto black cardstock. I popped that up on a bit of foam tape. So cute!


I'll see you again soon.  If you'd like to check out my other creations in the meantime, you can visit my blog, Frankie Helps Craft, my Instagram, or my Pinterest Board.
