Lawn Fawn Fortune Teller Cat

Welcome back and excited to share a fun card made with Lawn Fawn Fortune Teller Tabby Stamp Set
 set along with the adorable Lawn Fawn dies and papers.  All of these wonderful name-brand products are available at The Rubber Buggy on-line store.
Lawn Fawn Fortune Teller Tabby Stamp Set
This stamp set also comes with the coordinating Lawn Fawn Fortune Teller die set.  I just stamped the kitty with Memento Black Tuxedo ink with my stamp tool and colored it with Copic Markers and used scissors to cut it out.  I used a circle die to cut the center for the sentiments for Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel.  Lawn Fawn has made a nice tutorial on instructions for the reveal wheel.

Lawn Fawn Scalloped Rectangle Frames
I have used the Lawn Fawn Scalloped Rectangle frames often with most of my Lawn Fawn cards.  I love the stitched frame with the beautiful scallops that work well around the reveal wheels and framing the Lawn Fawn scenes created with the Lawn Fawn dies and stamp sets.

For beautiful night skies, the  Lawn Fawn Starry Sky die is small and very easy to die cut for star in your sky.  I sponged on the Ranger Distress ink before die cutting the stars.  I sponged on Ranger Distress inks such as Chipped Sapphire, Black Soot, and Tumbled Glass.   I kept the die cut stars and glued around the sky for added effect.
Below the Lawn Fawn Fortune Teller Cat is the adorable Lawn Fawn Upon A Star animals.  I cut the outside frame with Photo Play Plaid paper.

Halloween Gift Box Tutorial

I couldn't be more thankful and excited to Frilly and Funky Boutique for giving me this wonderful opportunity to be their guest designer for this exciting Halloween challenge.  

My gift box is a way to give that special person the Halloween candy or gifts from you.   The insert holds the gift into place and you can fill the box with treats and gift!  Below I have a tutorial to show you how I created it.




Supplies:
Julie Nutting:  Witchy Poo Stamp and Julie Nuttie Photo Play Bootiful Paper
Tim Holtz Idea-ology - Adornments Halloween Words
Blue Fern Studio Paper:  Autencitity
Wild Orchid Craft Flower:
Purple Seam Binding Ribbon
Cranberry Colored Cardstock
Graphic 45 Rare Oddities Paper
Sue Wilson Designs:  Oval Stitched Die Set

Tutorial


For this gift box, I am using a two-sided cardstock.
Inside:
Inside:  Sample of scoring as per instructions above.   I used a cranberry colored cardstock.



Front:
Beginners:  To add a nice frame around an image, take two of the frames in a set of rectangles, squares, circles or ovals, tape together and cut.   For a wider frame, just use the next larger size in the set.  Most of the time, I use a solid color cardstock for a frame around an image, but this time, I used the same patterned paper and sponged on Ranger Distress Ink Walnut to give the frame a vintage appearance.  




Please contact me if you have any questions.  Have fun with this wonderful challenge at The Frilly and Funky Boutique.  Make sure to check the blogs to see all of the Halloween cards and projects this talented design team have made to share with you.  We can't wait to see what you will make.

Enjoy and Happy Crafting!

Going Batty


Welcome back crafters and are you going batty trying to come up with some fun Halloween gift boxes for those special Trick or Treaters?   I am so excited to share some Boo-tiful Trick or Treat boxes for that special person.  The Lawn Fawn Bat Add-on is a fun way to add to your craft gift boxes.   I had so much fun making these little bats to glue to my craft boxes that will be filled with chocolates and candy corns for my grand children.  Easy peasy and so many ways to come up with different bats using the large or small wings.  The Lawn Fawn created a thorough video on different ways to created your bat by clicking HERE.  They used two of the dies to create the eyes and mouth even though I did mine with just markers rather than die cuts behind the bat.  

On the last bat, I stamped cardstock with a Halloween background stamp and cut it out with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Pumpkin die.  Fun, Fun Fun.

Pumpkin 3

Welcome back and don't you love the colors of fall.  I am excited to share my three cards made for the The Rubber Buggy blog with the gorgeous Lawn Fawn and 28 Lilac Lane products.  The Rubber Buggy on-line store has all of the wonderful products you will need to make you Fall/Halloween/Thanksgiving cards.

Isn't this fun making fall cards that can be used for many occasions with the gorgeous colors of fall.  I just fell in love with the beautiful Lawn Fawn Fall Fling  paper that comes in 6" x 6" and 12" x 12".  I cut out all of the Lawn Fawn Stitched Pumpkin Frame dies with the Lawn Fawn Fall Fling paper and also used this paper as the background.
With the card above, I used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Frames behind the wooden paper.  I cut out two Lawn Fawn Stitched Pumpkin Frames using the Lawn Fawn Fall Fling paper.  I glued the top pumpkin to a clear acetate sheet/clear sheet protector sheet and when the glue dried, cut the acetate pumpkin to the patterned paper.  I adhered the sequins and buttons from the 28 Lilac Lane Shaker Mix-Safari Sunrise on the bottom pumpkin and glued the top pumpkin with the acetate together. I adhered the pumpkin to the card along with a variety of leaves cut out from the Lawn Fawn Stitched Pumpkin Frame die set.  I used adhesive spray on the back of the Thanks die and adhered to front of the pumpkin.  
The techniques used in the first card about using the sequins is the same and used the Lawn Fawn Happy Birthday Border die and just cut off "To You" that was attached to the die cut.  There are many other Happy Birthday dies such as this one available on The Rubber Buggy that can also be used on a card like this one if sold out.  I used two rectangle frame dies to make the coral frame around the card.

I just love this Halloween card made with the Lawn Fawn products shown below.  This one is with the Lawn Fawn Bat Add On.  I will be showing next week Halloween gift boxes made with this adorable bat.  Also, Lawn Fawn has a tutorial on how to put this bat together.  I am glad that I watched if before putting this critter together with a lot of helpful hints given on this tutorial.  Additionally, I used the Lawn Fawn Leafy Tree Background Portrait die and added a circle for the moon behind the tree.  I sponged on the Lawn Fawn Sunflower ink on the moon as well as used the Lawn Fawn Starry Sky die around the sky that was sponged with Ranger Distress purple inks.  I cut out the Happy Halloween die in a bronze mirror cardstock and in back cardstock and glue slightly together to create a shadow.  I added the 28 Lilac Lane sequins inside the pumpkin.  I used an ole spider punch around the card.

Rawsome 2

Welcome back and Nancy, here, to share with you some fun cards to make for that special person.  I just love working with Lawn Fawn stamps, dies and paper collection like the Lawn Fawn Rawrsome stamp set that I used for this card along with the Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel and other Lawn Fawn dies..  


Lawn Fawn Rawrsome Stamp Set


I love making these  Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel   cards with Lawn Fawn stamp and die collections and so will you.  Lawn Fawn has a wonderful reveal wheel tutorial and I suggest that you watch this before adventuring out to make your first reveal wheel card.  Over the past several cards, I modified it just a little to fit each card but basically it is the same.  I would suggest finding flattest brad you can find for the circle in the wheel so that you don't get much of a warp in the center of the card.  Using a fatter 3D foam tape inside the reveal wheel helps to correct the warpness from the effects of the brad.

Lawn Fawn Simply Puffy Clouds

I just love these cut little Lawn Fawn Simply Puffy Clouds, Lawn Fawn Stitched Mountains Border and Lawn Fawn Grassy Border for many of my cards.

Lawn Fawn Stitched Mountains Border and Lawn Fawn Grassy Border
Below, I made a fun explosion card using the Lawn Fawn Rawsome stamp set.  I fussy cut the dinosaurs since I didn't want any white edges and colored these dinosaurs with Copic Markers.  I sponged on Ranger Distress Tumbled Glass ink and  Lawn Fawn Sunflower Yellow ink to create the sky.

I always highly recommend using a stamp tool like the Tim Holtz or My Sweet Petunia Misti stamp tool for all of your stamping to save time, money and get the top quality of stamping that you need for all of your cards and scrap book pages.  Research it out to get the right one for you and don't go small but start with at least a 6 x 8 or larger stamping surface.  I use the 6 x 8" but wish I purchased the 12" x 12" Misti stamp tool.



So have fun crafting this weekend with these products.  My cards and projects are always posted on Saturday.  Keep watching and thank you so much for those wonderful comments as well as suggestions. 

Enjoy and Happy Crafting!
