You're a Star: Offset Die Cuts

Today I'm sharing a project I actually made weeks ago!  I made this card with the new Simon Says Stamp Exclusive die Star Parade and I love how it turned out. :)


I cut multiple die cuts from Neenah white card stock then colored them with copic markers.  I could have cut from color card stock but I was away from my regular craft area at a retreat and didn't have colored card stock with me so I improvised.


I layered all my colored die cuts by off setting them slightly then I added the black one on top.  I layered them together before adhering them to the card base so I could center it as an entire element rather that trying to figure out where the final die cut would end up.  It was also easier to glue them together this way too and keep my card base nice and clean from glue.  The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn's Lucky Stars stamp set and I used wood veneer stars by Studio Calico colored black with a little bit of Stardust stickles on top.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Happy Easter!

Hello and Happy Easter!

I have a fun Easter card to share today using lots of cute Lawn Fawn goodies.


I used the Lawn Cuts Grass Border die to cut many colors of easter grass from the Let's Polka 6x6 paper pad.  I used distress ink to color my sky on the base of my card before layering my grass over top.  The bunny, eggs and sentiment are from Lawn Fawn's Happy Easter set and color with copics.  The ribbon is from May Arts.

Thanks for hopping by today! Have a very happy Easter!

Lawn Fawn April Inspiration Week: Dream

Hello Friends!
I'm back again with another day of April Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week.  Today I have 2 cards to share both made with the mini set Dream.  I adore these cut little feathers.  I've seen lots of feather sets out there but I have to say none are as cute as this one, it's that cute Lawn Fawn style.  And it has matching dies too!


For this first card I heat embossed the large feather image on water color paper and used the matching dies to cut them out.  I watercolored them using distress inks and a water brush.  It had to see in the picture but I also added some Wink of Stella glitter to them as well.


For my second card I white embossed he feathers and sentiment on watercolor paper and use distress inks in Dried Marigold and Scattered Straw for the background and distress markers to color the feathers.  I used perfect pearls mist to blend the colors of the feathers which gives them all a lovely shimmer.  I used the small tip of the Dried Marigold distress marker to trace around the sentiment and make it stand out from the background more.

Be sure to check out the Lawn Fawn Blog to see more inspiring projects!
