I have been having so much fun with my Lawn Fawn stamps. I love the style and they are so fun to create with. I created this card a couple weeks ago using a few different sets. I started by creating some masks using Eclipse Masking Tape. (You can see my tutorial on masking here.) I stamped the little graduation cap from the Hats Off to You stamp set with Tuxedo Black Memento ink on Copic X-Press It cardstock. Then, I masked the cap and stamped the owl from Critters in the Forest. I masked the owl and stamped the log (also from Critters in the Forest). I masked the log and added a few cloud masks (cut with the MFT cloud dies). Then, I used my air compressor and a blue copic marker to spray the sky. (I removed the masks and lightly sprayed the clouds so they aren't too bright.) Once I removed all my masks, I colored my image with these copic markers: R29, R89, E53, E55, E57, E59, C1, C2, C3, YG67, B34, B37, B39, E31, E33, E35, E37.
I stamped the polaroid image from the Say Cheese stamp set on white cardstock and cut it out. I used a square punch to punch the middle where I wanted to cut the image. This made it easy to cut the rest of the frame.
I stamped a banner from the Bannerific stamp set on a piece of patterned paper (from October Afternoon's Campfire line) with tuxedo black ink. Then, I colored it with some copic markers (YR20, YR21, YR23, YR24). I didn't worry about being too careful and staying in the lines because I knew I would be cutting the banner out. One of the things I love about photopolymer stamps is that you can shape them to meet your needs. I shaped the sentiment (from Hats Off to You) that I wanted to use so that the letters fit perfectly in the banner. Then, I cut out the banner. I also stamped the two little birds from Bannerific on copic x-press it cardstock, colored them with red copic markers, and cut them out.
I used some patterned papers from October Afternoon's Campfire line and some text print paper from Making Memories. I distressed all the edges with antique linen and walnut stain distress inks and a foam applicator. Then, I stitched my layers and added a few buttons. I adhered my stamped images with foam adhesive and my papers to my card base with memory glue dots and my atg adhesive.
We're having my daughter's 5th birthday party this weekend. Where does the time go?! I can't believe she is already 5! I am off to bake her cake and make her a birthday card. Have a wonderful weekend!
