Monster Love - Reveal Wheel

Here is my first attempt at making a card with my Lawn Fawn Square Reveal Wheel add-on, of course you need the LF Reveal Wheel die set also for the wheel mechanism.

I used the heart window that is included with the square add-on.  I used the heart window insert to cut out two additional hearts. 

For the two side hearts, I used my window die, then Then I placed my two hearts where I wanted them, using purple tape, I taped them to the die and then ran them through the die cutter.  This makes the two hearts look like they are behind the heart window.

My cute little monster is from the stamp set by MFT, More Monsters.  I stamped him in Distress Ink, Candied Apple.  I used this same ink for the red splatters on my background.  The sentiment is from MFT Monster Love stamp set.  I used a post it not to mask my sentiment and placed it in two separate lines.

I created a template for stamping in my reveal wheel window, and some how made a miscalculation, so my sentiments are a little high.  I used Post It tape on the wheel and colored it in four sections.  So each heart has a different sentiment and is a different color, I used Cracked Pistaschio, Dried Marigold, Picked Raspberries, and Shaded Lilac for the colors and my Lawn Fawn How You Bean? Conversation Hearts Add-on for the sentiments.

My patterned paper is from a paper pack I purchased from Michaels last year for Valentines.

Love is in the Air

For today's challenge - Love is in the Air I am featuring Ava and Deacon Heart.


After coloring my image I applied a mask over it.  Using a heart stencil, I created the background with my Tim Holtz blending brush and distress inks, in Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry.

The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamps "Love Always", which was included in the February 2019 card kit.  I thought the sentiment was perfect for the image.  I didn't want the sentiment to say Happy Valentine's, because I thought it could be an anniversary card or maybe a just because.

Big Hug

This card was inspired by My Favorite Things Weekly Sketch Challenge (MFTWSC423).


I cut out two layers for my letters with my Cricut Maker, the font is Courier Bold.  This was the only font I could find that kept my two words with a simalar size.  I offset the black layer to create a shadow and to add a little extra color.

I did select a red glitter card stock since I thought this would be a cuter Valentine's card, but with other colors it would also be a great pick me up for a friend.  

The sentiment is Honey Bee Sending You Sentiments.  This company has great stamp sets for building your own sentiments.  You get all the we, they, you, is, a, an, etc. words to personalize your sentiment a little.

I was going to say sending you a big hug, then when I pulled the set out and saw special delivery, I liked it better.

This is a really quick and simple card to put together, hope you like it.

Valentine's Day

Just a quick post to share my latest Valentine card.

I was trying to keep to pastels shown in the MFT Color Challenge, so I selected Distress Oxide in Spun Sugar for my background.  I stamped various hearts from the February 2019 Card Kit Love Always from Simon Says.

The images are very hard to see, then I added a few hearts in Shaded Lilac.

My heart frame was created using the Lawn Fawn Lacy Heart Stackables and Outside In Stitched Heart Stackable.  I added a vellum layer behind the heart frame.

Lots of Love

Today I have two cards to show.  I created both of these for the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge - Lots of Love.

The first card I showcase the How You Bean? Conversation Hearts Add- on.

I cut layers with my A2 Stitched Rectangle, then I cut the bottom off with my scalloped edges.  I did this on both layers, then butted them together,  I colored my hearts with my alcohol markers, then added the little sentiments over the ink.  I stamped a few extra hearts and added Nuvo Crystal drops in Onyx Black.

For the second card, I used the left over layers from my first card.


I decided to cut out a heart window and place my little elephant inside the window.  I used a blend of Picked Raspberries and Spun Sugar on the card front behind the heart.  I added a sentiment inside the heart and a few pink gems.  

This created 2 simple cards, but they look very different.

Supplies:
Lawn Fawn How You Bean? Conversation Hearts Add-on Stamp Set

Winter Wishes

Today I am featuring this weeks new release from Bugaboo Stamps.

I printed my image with my printer so that it would be located to the side of my card.  Then I uploaded my digital stamp into Design Space and set the image to cut.  This gives me just the digital stamp image shape, which I then cut out of masking paper.

I colored my image with my Prismacolor pencils, then I placed the masking paper on top of the image.  Using my Tim Holtz blending brush, I applied a light background with my Distress Oxide ink, in Tumbled glass and a little Blueprint Sketch.

This is the first time trying to use a masking technique with my digital stamps, but I think it worked pretty good, so I will probably do this again in the future.

I added some snow sheen with my clear Gellyroll pen, it adds sparkle and no color.  I applied this everywhere there is snow.

The sentiment is from My Favorite Things - Snowglobe Sentiments and is heat embossed with white embossing powder.

Sympathy Card

Today's card features a stamp collection by Altenew Stamps "Garden Treasures".


I splattered a little ink on my background using my distress inks in Pine Needles and Fired Brick. The sentiment and flower center are stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with Rich Gold embossing powder.  I also used my Versamark pen to add a few dots of gold around the flower, which doesn't show up in the photo.

I stamped my leaves, then using masking method, I added my flower.  I coloered the image with my Prismacolor pencils using a blend of orange and red hues.  The flower is attached with foam tape.
