Lawn Fawn - Lawn Fawnatics Birthday Card

Hey peeps.  Happy Monday.  I'm joining in on the fun over at Lawn Fawnatics first challenge.  So let's start this week of with a birthday celebration card. Since March is Lawn Fawn's birthday month and mine of course we have to celebrate right?!

For my birthday card I used the Lawn Fawn Baked With Love stamp set.  I colored up a bunch of images to use on several cards.  The first card I posted last week. I was in the mood for cupcakes but didn't want the calories on my hips.  LOL  So I used the remaining images for this card.  Once I get in the coloring, I'm on a roll. 

I used my Copic markers to color up these sweet images and of course my favorite Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid paper.  Decided to pull out my Peek-A-Boo Window die from My Favorite Things to make a little window for my mixer to sit behind.  Adding just a few hearts in the background filled in the area nicely.  I keep this card on my desk for a few days pondering if I needed to add anything else to my card.  In the end I pulled out some of my DIY enamel dots to finish off my card.

All this sweetness and not a lick of calories.  Say what?!?  That's a win-win baby!

Have a fabulous Monday everyone.  I'm off to see all the lovely cards that have been made for this birthday challenge. See ya back here soon.

Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop & TUTORIAL

Hey peeps.  Happy Friday.  Today is the start of the Spring Coffee Lovers blog hop. The hop goes live at 9:00am EST. I have a card and a tutorial for you.  My day begins and sometimes ends with coffee.  So of course I have to play in the blog hop every chance I get.

I used Simon Says Stamp's What's Brewing and Altenew's Coffee Talk stamp sets for my card today along with a stencil from The Crafter's Workshop. To finish off my card I add a strip of Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid paper and a few Tonic Studio Nuvo crystal drops.

Here's a quick tutorial on how this card came together.  Grab your cup of coffee, tea, or hot chocolate and  enjoy.  You can watch it here on my blog or on my Youtube channel mzdanajoy.

Have a great weekend everyone. Make it a crafty one.

Lawn Fawn - Baked With Love

Hey peeps.  Back with a quick card. I felt the need to have some cupcakes but didn't want to have the calories on my hips. (LOL)  I pulled out my Lawn Fawn Baked With Love stamp set instead and totally didn't regret the calorie count.  Zero!! 

I colored my image with Copic markers and pulled out my favorite Lawn Fawn plaid paper and twine to finish off my card.  Just a peek of a scalloped edge behind my plaid paper and images rounded out the sweet level. 

Here's a closeup of the sweet card.  I think I feel a cavity coming on.  Nope just the urge to have another cupcake. ;-)

Have a great day everyone.  I'll see you back here soon!

Using Large Background Stamps With Distress Oxide Inks - Tutorial

Hey peeps. I have a quick tutorial for you.  I pull out one of my large background stamps from My Favorite Things and made a funky background panel for a card.  It was really simple to make with some distress oxide and regular distress inks. Isn't this card so striking?  Just a large stamp, a few colors of ink and a sentiment die cut.  Just adding a few DIY enamel dots and my card was done.  This came together rather quickly.

To create this background I first stamped the image with three ink colors.  I spritzed it will some shimmer mist and heat set it.  Next sponged on some regular distress inks onto the panel in coordinating colors to blending everything together.  Spritzing on just a touch of shimmer at the end.

Next I die cut out the sentiment in the middle of the panel. To make the sentiment pop I also die out the sentiment out of yellow fun foam and attached the sentiment on top.  Placing it all back into the panel allows the sentiment to really stand out.  I love this technique.  I've done it several times on cards and I love the result each time.  You can find the other videos on my Youtube channel as well.
Here's is a quick tutorial on how this card came together.  I've linked to one of the videos to show you how I did this technique before on a card.

Have a great day everyone.  I'll see you back here soon.
