Altenew May 2018 Stamp/Die Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello! Welcome to the Altenew May 2018 Release Blog Hop.  You should be arriving from Enza Gudor's blog.  Please visit the Altenew Card Blog to see all the products in this release.  I have two cards to share with you today using some of the new products from the May 2018 stamp and die release.

Altenew-Floral Elements-Fine Alphabet-Chari Moss

This first card uses the new mini set Floral Elements and coordinating dies to create the bright and beautiful bouquet behind the sentiment.  I used the new Fine Alphabet Dies to create the sentiment.  I cut three of each letter from black cardstock and one from gold glitter and stacked them to create a nice thick sentiment to stand out from the flowers behind.

I used the Cross Stitch Canvas Die for the background for some added interest and finished it off by embellishing with crystal clear drops and stardust stickles at the flower centers.

Altenew-Main Squeeze-Chari Moss1

My second card uses the new stamp set Main Squeeze and it's coordinating dies.  I started with a card base cut from Warm Sunshine cardstock and stamped single layered lemons for the background.  I also stamped out a few layered lemons on white cardstock and cut them out with the coordinating dies.  I popped them up on the background with different thicknesses of foam adhesive to create dimensions on the card and added a bright sentiment strip close to the bottom.  I added a few clear droplets that I think make this card look like a refreshing glass of lemonade.

Get Cracking On Christmas: Santa Reveal Wheel

Hello! It's the third Thursday of the month, time to Get Cracking on Christmas! The idea behind this little challenge is to create a Holiday card once a month all year long since the holidays are always so hectic and we never seem to get many Christmas cards made.  Today I'm joining my friends Jenn, Cherion, and Libby and to share some holiday inspiration.


I used the new Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel die to create a fun card with Santa flying through the sky! How fun! I embossed the Santa and his reindeer from the Lawn Fawn's Ready Set Snow stamp set onto the wheel prior to inking with distress inks.


I created the night sky with distress oxides in blueprint sketch, wilted violet and picked raspberry.  I also added flecks of white gold watercolor for a snow effect. The snowy ground is cut from white glitter cardstock and I used houses from Lawn Fawn's Winter Village.


If you would like to join us for our month holiday crafting challenge please share your creations along with the hashtag #getcrackingonchristmas so we can see your creations! Be sure to visit JennCherion, and Libby as well!

Lawn Fawn May Inspiration Week: Screen Time

Hello! Today is the last day of Lawn Fawn release week.  New products will be available tomorrow May 17th at 12:01am EST. Today we are featuring the new set Screen Time and I have a fun light up Chibitronics card to share.


I thought it would be fun to have the screen light up and cast light on the kids on the couch, just like a real TV.


I drew a little couch for the kids to sit on.  To see how I created this card check out the video tutorial below or you can watch it HERE on my YouTube channel.


Be sure an stop by the Lawn Fawn blog for more Screen Time projects.  Remember all the new summer release will be available May 17th and we will feature the remaining products in June!

Lawn Fawn May Inspiration Week: Shadow Box Theater Add-On

Hello! Lawn Fawn Release week is starting to wrap up, the new products will be avaliable in just a few days, but until then we still have a few things to feature and share with you.  Today we are featuring the new add-on dies that coordinate with the Shadow Box die.  I have actually used the new Shadow Box Theater Add-on dies to create a flat card.


I cut the curtains from felt and created a little stage on the card for the stars.  I used the stage from the die set and just covered up the score/fold lines with the curtains.  The sentiment is from Lucky Stars and I used a banner from Bannerific.


Please visit the Lawn Fawn blog for more projects with the Theater add-on as well as the Ocean add-on.

Lawn Fawn May Inspiration Week: Manatee-rific + Stitched Wave Borders

Hello! Today for Lawn Fawn Release week I have a fun shaker card to share featuring the new stamp set Manatee-rific and Stitched Wave Border dies.


This is a no coloring needed card! I white embossed the manatees on narwhal cardstock and only added some colored pencil for rosy cheeks and eyeshadow.  I used papers from the Watercolor wishes collection for my backgrounds, waves, and banner.   I also stamped and white embossed the seaweed to tuck behind the waves onto the green watercolor wishes paper as well.


To create the shaker box I die cut multiple frames with the Slide On Over circle dies and stacked them.  The circle this die creates does not appear to be exactly the same as the porthole frame circle but extremely close.  Close enough that I could be used for this technique.  I kind of like the pink color peeking out just slightly anyway.  I filled my shaker with shells from Little Things by Lucy's Cards along with some clear seed beads which always remind me of bubbles.  I also tucked some seaweed inside the frame as well but they get hidden in the photographs by the shells and beads inside.

Check out the Lawn Fawn blog for more projects using Manatee-rific and the new stitched wave border dies!

Lawn Fawn May Inspiration Week: Critter Concert + Little Music Notes

Hello! Lawn Fawn May Inspiration week continues today with Critter Concert and the Little Music Notes dies.  Is anyone else a former band geek? I certainly am! I played the clarinet in middle and high school. :)


I decided to make a bear band for my card because I felt it went well with the sentiment I choose.  I colored them in various brown and grey shades for more variety of the images and added a little blue bird director.


I used the largest stitched scalloped frame for the outside then cut some of the notes with the new Little Music Notes die set and decorated the top corners of the frame.

Be sure and check out the Lawn Fawn blog for more projects using Critter Concert!

Lawn Fawn May Inspiration Week: You Are Sublime

Hello! Lawn Fawn release week continues today with the new set You Are Sublime.  The card I shared in yesterday's post showcased the super cute submarine and diver.  Today I am focusing on the anglerfish with a fun light up feature!


As soon as I saw this anglerfish image I wanted to light it up, so I broke out the Chibitronics lights to make it happen. The light circuit lies behind the front panel and I created a switch to complete the circuit under the "push here" button.  


Tada! I used an orange light to coordinate with the coral and seaweed colors.  The background is cut with the windy backdrop die for the look of water or waves and I used paper bag cardstock for the ocean floor.


Here is another look, I used a banner from Bannertastic for the sentiment and also added the large rock from Mermaid for you to create my coral bed.


Be sure to check out the Lawn Fawn blog for more projects with You Are Sublime along with the new Porthole frames and Life the Flap Circles.
