Happy Eggstra Amazing Easter!


Hello Papercrafters! Today I'm sharing some fun Spring/Easter inspired projects using a few gorgeous Lawn Fawn sets. Both projects are created for Bizzy Becs April Challenge, and just in time for Easter - better late than never hehe. 

The theme is 'Anything Goes' and the winner of the challenge will receive 5 digital stamps of their choice. Click here to enter. 

The fun Easter card is using the new Eggstra Amazing Easter stamp set and dies. This is my second time to use this set and so adorable and the scene building is so much fun. The images have been first stamped with Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink. I have used Zig clean color brush markers with a fine tip aqua brush for a soft watercolor blending. Bristol smooth cardstock is used for best results with Zigs clean color brush markers.

Background Panel: Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Backdrop: Portrait. 
Grass: Ink blending with Ranger distress Oxide Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron
Sky: My Favorite Things Cloud Stencil and ink blended with Ranger distress Oxide Broken China. 

Sentiments: Gold heat embossed and white heat embossed.

I have used fun foam as well as foam dimensionals to give an extra raise for both the background panel and images.

Clear glossy accents applied to the Easter Eggs from shine and dimension.

For an extra treat, I have used Lawn Fawn's Scalloped Treat Box, together with the Scalloped Treat Box Spring House Add-on set. It's a lot of fun to create with and makes the cutest little house gift box to give or to use for home deco. I could really keep making more and make a little village lol.

House Treat Box: Lawn Fawn 12x12" Watercolor Wishes patterned paper.
Roof, Windows and door: 6x6" Really Rainbow Scallops petite paper pack

Neenah Solar White cardstock used for the rest and have coloured with Copic makers as well as Mowed Lawn  Ranger distress ink for the tree.

Vellum used for both the windows and doors. 

I hope you have enjoyed both these projects and been inspired. 

Thank you so much for stopping by, 'til next time - Happy Crafting! :)

Eggstra Amazing Easter! Papercraft Business Challenge #17

Hello Papercrafters! It's time again for another Papercraft Business Challenge and the theme is Easter for April. There's a also a cute prize to win, 'Chirpy Stamp' from Penny Johnson, for entries using the Easter theme.  I just love the Spring Easter theme and have used the adorable new set from Lawn Fawn - 'Eggstra Amazing Easter' and what better way to display the cute characters than in a pop up box card, also from Lawn Fawn.

Click here to enter or click on the banner below. 

The images and details are just too cute and have been coloured in with Copic markers for quick and seamless blending and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. 

The card in a box was constructed using Neenah solar white card stock 80lbs and used the new Spring Fling 6x6" petite patterned paper. The two patterns have been die cut twice and adhered over the main cardstock and trimmed slightly to allow folding at the score lines.

The grasses were created using the the new Mushrooms Border dies and trimmed to size to fit the card in a box inserts. I have used Ranger Distress Inks: Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn, ink blending for the grasses. 

The sky background was done using MFT cloud stencil and light ink blend with Ranger distress ink Broken China. 

The sentiments have been stamped with Lawn Fawn Merman ink and used the Everyday Sentiment Banners for the die cut banner. The sentiment has been white heat embossed and ink blended with Ranger distress ink Peacock Feathers to coordinate.  

The back has also been lovingly decorated with the cute bunny juggling the Easter eggs. 

This card was a lot of fun to create and just love both the images and sentiments. Hope your basket will be full of Joy this Easter most of all with crafty fun and goodies. I can't wait to see what you create for this month's challenge and be sure to check out the rest of the Design Team's projects for more inspiration. Thanks so much for stopping by - 'til next time - Happy Crafting!

There's Gnome Place Like Home - Lawn Fawn Oh Gnome!

Hello papercrafters! I'm excited to share this cute and adorable card using a few new sets from Lawn Fawn's Spring release. I just love the new Oh Gnome! stamp set as well as the Mushroom House die, Mushroom Border and matching Oh Gnome! dies to create a fun gnome house and garden. 

I have also used the new Really Rainbow Scallops 6x6 inch petite paper for the sky background. The inspiration of the card came from Lawn Fawn's intro videos and cards using these new sets and was just too irresistible and had to give it a go, as the imagery of gardens and gnomes is a favourites.

The sentiment there's gnome place like home completes the scene with the gnome peeking out from the open door. There are many fun and cute sentiments in the set, most of which are play on words on Gnome and can be used for many occasions.  

The images have been stamped in Hero Arts Intense black ink and coloured in Copic markers.

I have used Neenah White Solar White 80lbs cardstock to die cut the Mushroom House and Mushroom Borders and includes the grass. Each piece has been coloured in with Copic markers except for the grass which has been ink blended using Ranger distress inks Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron. Using white cardstock is a great way to customise the colours and have the pieces coordinate. Coloured cardstock can be used to save time and just depends on what you have on hand and preferred look in mind.

The light blue Really Rainbow Scallops patterned paper has been used in the back and adhered onto an A2 side folding card base. The house has been raised with fun foam, using the same die cut of the main house frame to give an even raise. Fun foam has also been used on all the other elements in the foreground to match them to the mushroom house layer including the sentiment.  It makes them all pop and adds dimension to the scene.

This card was so much to fun create and love how customisable the sets are, and coordinates with many other existing Lawn Fawn sets.  This is also my first card to share with Bizzy Becs design team and Bizzy Bec's March Challenge. The theme is 'Anything Goes' and hope it has inspired you to create and enter this month's challenge. 

The winner from the challenge will be invited to be a guest designer and will also receive 5 digital stamps of choice. Be sure to check out all the fabulous cards created by the design team for more inspiration and cannot wait to see what you create.
