Sending Big Hugs with Lawn Fawn...

 


Hello and happy Wednesday everyone. Mayra here with you today. I am sharing this sweet set of cards with you. I used the lovely new Simple Stripes Diagonal die set, along with the Giant Sending Big Hugs die. 




I began by using the largest die from the Basic Rectangles die set to die-cut the base panel for my cards. Next, I used the Simple Stripes Diagonal die set to die cut the stripes using kraft-colored card stock. I then die cut the phrase 'sending big hugs' using the Giant Sending Big Hugs die from yellow-colored cardstock. You can use the largest and medium-sized rectangles from the  Basic Rectangles die set to create a framed border. Then, I die-cut the layers for the deer using the Tiny Gift Box Deer Add-on, Woodland Critter Huggers, and the Woodland Critter Huggers Winter Add-on.




The panel for the second card was made using the Quilted Backdrop die. I then added color to the die-cut layers using Lawn Fawn and Distress Inks. For the yellow area, I used Sunflower, No.2 Pencil, Wild Honey, and Rusty Hinge. For the brown areas, I used Gathered Twigs, Brushed Corduroy, Ground Espresso, and Antique Linen I also added a couple of black splatters using Black Soot Distress Ink.




Next, I stamped the sentiment onto the banners from the Fancy Wavy Banners die set using black ink. 

I hope you enjoy the card I created to share with you today. Thank you very much for taking the time to stop by. I hope you each have a wonderful and blessed day. Please feel welcome to visit me on my blogIG or Pinterest

Hello from Toni: Mama Elephant BOO!


 Hello, Doodlebugs fans! I have so shifted into fall mode. It's time to nest and get cozy, my favorites!


For today's slimline Halloween card I'm using lots of Mama Elephant, including Happy Haunting, Little Boo Agenda, and Slim Card Basics.


I sponged the background cardstock with Distress Oxide Antique Linen, Carved Pumpkin and Salvaged Patina, and spattered it with Copic Opaque White. I then brushed gesso over the lot. 

I used the rectangle die from Slim Card Basics to create a mask and used the same Distress Oxides to outline the scene. I spattered a tiny bit of water as well.


My next step was coloring up the little Happy Haunting images with Copics.  I used Doodlebug Design Candy Carnival to paper piece some of the outfits too. They're ever 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.

Hello from Toni: Mama Elephant Little Witches


Hello, everyone! For today's pair of cards, I have pics of my sister making them as well as she happened to be visiting at the time I made them. This is going to be fun!

Let's start with the card on the left which uses the clouds leftover from cutting out the Mama Elephant Cloud Grid Cover.


Starting from the upper left photo and moving clockwise, (1) diecut the cover panel. Apply glue to the clouds and carefully position your card base on top.

(2) Flip the lot over and use Distress Oxides to color the individuals clouds.  Distress Oxide Carved Pumpkin, Twisted Citron, Shaded Lilac, Mustard Seed, and Salvaged Patina was used here.


(3) Because you left the die in place as you applied color, when you lift away the die, you will have a lovely border of white around each cloud.


(4) Color up the Mama Elephant Little Witch Agenda and any other images you'd like (for example, MFT Spooktacular Friends and Mama Elephant Little Boo Agenda).  Lawn Fawn Oliver's Stitched ABCs fit perfectly over the clouds as well.


For the second card, we used the Mama Elephant Cloud Grid Cover to create a cute shaker.

Again, starting in the upper left and moving clockwise, (1) sponge the card base with Distress Oxides (Barn Red, Carved Pumpkin, and Mustard Seed used here). Adhere acetate to the diecut front panel using 1/8" Scor-tape. 

(2) Add another layer of the 1/8" Scor-Tape to the acetate/card front panel and sprinkle a few sequins onto your card base.


(3) Carefully adhere the panel to the card base and have fun testing the shaker.

(4) Color up a few Mama Elephant Little Witch Agenda images and adhere them to the card. Don't forget your sentiment!  I used one from MFT Spooktacular Friends embossed on a Lawn Fawn Simple Wavy Banner.


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.
