Party Animal Birthday Card with Scrapbook.com

Tuesday, May 24, 2022

When I was in high school, I used to be able to make balloon animals. My dad was a magician and I also did some puppeteering so adding balloon animals as a skill seemed natural, don't you think? So when I saw this adorable stamp set from Scrapbook .com, I was so excited as it's just a great, big stamp set! Very Jeff Koons feeling and I love it.

I took some photos along the way making this card and created an Instagram Stories Tutorial that you can see for 24 hours in my Stories. But don't worry, I saved it as a Highlight and you can see it on my profile by clicking on the picture down below.

I hope you'll check it out and try making this card yourself if you get the stamp set!

Daisy Hugs with Lawn Fawn

Monday, May 23, 2022

So, guess who caught a cold this weekend... Me. 😭 I had big plans to get some crafting done and get videos recorded so I could work on them during the week... I'm not even sure I can do a voice over! But I have a few cards made this week that I hope to share - just may not have videos right away until I can get this cough to go away.

Today's card is a simple layout - I used the latest Craft Roulette parameters to inspire my card and it also happened to work out to submit for the latest Lawnfawnatics Challenge, too! I have an A2 sized card with the colors yellow and green, daisy flowers and a woodgrain background.

I popped up the flowers and glued the leaves tucked under each of the flowers. The "hugs" sentiment is three layers of black cardstock glued together and then glued down to the flowers. I hope you like this simple card!

Thanks Veggie Much with Heffy Doodle

Friday, May 20, 2022

We all know by know how much I love a good pun... and "thanks veggie much" is definitely a top 10. I just love that I have cute vegetable stamps from Heffy Doodle and I wanted to create a veggie patch with the new Rolling Hills Landscape dies. Mixing new product with older stamps is a great way to really stretch the use of your products! (Or maybe help your rationale of why *need* it.)

Check out my repost of my design team project down below. I share how I distressed and created my background, what I did to help recover from a splatter mishap and assembled my card.

Tea-riffic Day with Heffy Doodle

Wednesday, May 18, 2022

I'm running behind on my Craft Roulette project this week! I wasn't really sure how I was going to create a card with two folds, but thought I could do an off- centered gate fold as that was also a parameter. I looked through my patterned paper and picked florals to help me with my colors and finally the adorable Oh Crumbs Heffy Doodle stamp set with had a sugar bowl for the last parameter.

I cut the and scored my cardstock card base, added patterned paper panels and then die cut two circles to keep my gate fold closed and in place; the two circles are glued together for stability. I had fun creating this cute little corgi and their pink tea set! Plus a few pink rhinestones really make the card pop, don't you think?

I'd love to know if you think I did well with the parameters and if you participated, too!

Toasted S'mores Sparkle Blends Shaker Card with Lawn Fawn

Sunday, May 15, 2022

The weekend is ending, but I squeezed in one more card and of course I had to make it interactive! I used the latest Lawn Fawn Lawnfawnatics challenge to inspire my colors, but I wanted to use my Toasted S'more Sparkle Blends. So obviously this adorable S'more the Merrier stamp set was the way to go!

Today's video is sharing how I assembled the shaker card, how I added the stamped and die cut images and embossing the sentiment. I did not show the coloring to keep the video not too long, but let me know in the comments if you'd like to see this stamp set in a future Color & Chat video!

Floral Bouquet Birthday Card with Scrapbook.com

Saturday, May 14, 2022

I created this card by picking a cardstock pad (Floral) and then dug through my supplies to pick out stamps, dies and a stencil that I thought would create a birthday card well together. Adding gold stencil paste and pink Pops of Color brought out shine to make this card really come together. I had a few hiccups along the way - you can see how I recovered in my video today.

While typing this, I got a notification that my next package from Scrapbook .com is going to be delivered today so I'm so excited to bring you more content next week with some brand new goodies!

Hey, Meow You Doing? New Release from Time For Tea Designs!

Friday, May 13, 2022

It's a new release day from Time For Tea Designs and there are SO MANY CUTE THINGS. Here is just one of the cards I made using the new release! I'll be sharing more this month, so keep coming back and checking my Instagram!

For this card, I used the new Flirty Flowers Cover Die to create a two layered background. I love how fun these flowers look made out of hearts! The stamp set is the new Purrfect Day Stamp Set and there is a Coordinating Die Set that also cuts out the sentiments. This is one of my favorite things about T4T - the bubble die cut around the sentiments are awesome! Finally, I used the "hey" from the Hey Hello Hi Sentiment Die Set.

I wish I could put this cat in a leather jacket, because this sentiment makes me think of Joey from Friends, right? So head over and get shopping! Don't forget to use my code T4TLAUREN10 at check out. 😉

Reconsider from Roadies 7 by Ink Road Stamps

Wednesday, May 11, 2022

So we all know that I love the snarky from Ink Road Stamps and I think this is my favorite sentiment from the Roadies Vol 7 set. There is a fun unicorn floatie in the set that I used to create a background as it made me think of myself at the pool and my daughter coming up to ask me for something. I would totally say, "If you need anything from me, RECONSIDER." 🤣

If you'd like to see how this full, tulle shaker card came together, check out my Reels video down below! The sequin mix is a Sparkle Blend (of course) called "Puzzle Pieces" and it inspired my color choices for my floatie background!

Don't Let the Muggles Get You Down with The Sassy Club

Monday, May 9, 2022

When the Craft Roulette wheel gave out the parameters this week, I immediately thought of Harry Potter. This week the parameters were [1] envelope; [2] four colors, I chose red, yellow, green and blue; [3] books and [4] a die cut frame. Envelope... books... and four colors? It's perfect!

I went through my The Sassy Club stamps and picked a few to create a card. I die cut a frame using stackable rectangles and made my own background with a light brown ink and a watercolor pen to pick up red ink and color in the wax seals.

Do you think I did well with the parameters? Did you also play along?

Super Star Birthday Cards with Lawn Fawn

Sunday, May 8, 2022

Happy Mother's Day to all my craft momma's today! Thinking of those who may not be able to celebrate with their momma and those who may have a difficult relationship (or none at all). LOVE YOU ALL.

Today I have my next batch of birthday cards using Lawn Fawn products. I am a part of the Lawn Fawn Addict's Birthday group and I wanted to make batches of cards to send out to my fellow Lawn Fawn addicts as well as some family or friends. I am also building up my stash of cards and have birthday cards listed in my Facebook Shop! My goal each month is to use some paper that's been lingering in my stash and I use Call Me Crafty Al's Sheetload of Cards to inspire my layout.

This month I used retired paper that had softer colors and constellations. So I grabbed my Lawn Fawn Super Star stamp set and created a cute scene on my cards of a mouse using their telescope. The star they spot sends them a tiny message, too! You can check out my video below for my process and details on how to get your own copy of the card layout.

Color & Chat: Udderly Fabulous Cows from Heffy Doodle

Friday, May 6, 2022

It's time for a new coloring guide and this month I used Heffy Doodle's new stamp set Udderly Fabulous to show I color in black and white cows! My card example has three, but I shared the two standing cows because they have the most detail. The cow on the left has a gold bell and horns while the cow on the right has an udder and a pretty flower above their ear!

Click the image above to enlarge and save to your desktop. You can also save my post on Instagram if you keep your coloring guides in a collection. Check out my video down below to see my coloring process as well as hear me chatting about what's been happening in my life the last month in my latest Color & Chat video!

Mid-Century Floral Mother's Day Card with Scrapbook.com

Thursday, May 5, 2022

I just recently purchased the adorable Mid-Century Floral stamp set from Scrapbook.com and I love that you can layer the stamps to create these mod looking flowers. I used the Boho Smooth Paper Pack to inspire my colors and added embossing in copper. The Rose Gold Pops of Color add the final shimmer the card needed and it's ready to be used for Mother's Day!

To create the ombre look on the "mom" sentiment, I first distressed the bottom of the letters with Tattered Rose Distress Ink and then applied a little bit of Pops of Color to the bottom edge of the letters. Using my finger, I smudged the Pops of Color upwards and gave it a painted look.

You can see a close up photo of the letters on my Scrapbook.com Gallery, too! I hope you enjoyed this simple card layout and try it for yourself.
