Lawnfawnatics Challenge - Interactive Cards

Lawn Fawn, Crafts, Stamps, CardsGabriela Sims3 Comments

Hi there! I absolutely love Lawn Fawn products and I thought I would play along with this challenge.   The theme for this one is  interactive cards. I used the "Bicycle for You" and "Bun in the Oven" stamp sets for this as well as the "Simple Road Border" die. This was so fun to make and when you pull the tab, the bicycle moves. I used "Slide on Over" to create the slider portion.

Here is a quick video to show him riding along!

I used the tiny faces from "Bun in the Oven" for the balloons and the "Congrats!" from that set for the pull tab. I did not make a video for this card, but I might recreate it in the future. Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!

Hi everyone, Gaby here with a CAS card using some dies I like, layering, and markers.  I wanted to challenge myself to make some nice cards without using stamps.  I started by die cutting the hearts out of two pieces of cardstock, one pink and one white.  Then I ran a coordinating piece of cardstock, one in white and one in kraft and ran them through my Xyron to use for layers.  Then I placed the leftover piece from the die cut onto the sticky side of each layer and replaced the die cuts into the opposite color paper, like an inlay.  Once that was done, I cut the paper at an angle and then adhered it to a pink piece of 4.25" x 5.5" with foam tape.  I had some additional die cut words that I covered with Glossy Accents and let them dry.  Once I attached those, I added some Nuvo Glitter Drops and some faux stitching with a Copic Multiliner and a white gel pen.  Once that was all dry, I colored the inside of the hearts using a Spectrum Noir Glitter pen.

The heart die is from Simon Says Stamp and the words are die cuts from the Lawn Fawn heart envelope die.  I will be posting more cards like this in addition to my regular projects that use stamps, stencils, inks, embossing powder, and the kitchen sink! I just think it's nice sometimes to use some of your supplies that you might forget about because of all the new products. Until next time, happy crafting!

Hello everyone, Gaby here today with a Valentine's Day Card that will wow the recipient.  In my case, my husband already saw this, so he won't be surprised.  I am using some products from Chibitronics and Lawn Fawn to make a light up card with heart.  I downloaded a template from the Chibitronics website for the circuit and I'm using their White Lights, Copper Tape, and Effects Pack.  The two Lawn Fawn sets I am using are Octopi My Heart and Mermaid for You.  Check out the video below!

I hope you enjoyed the video and that it was easy to follow, my advice if you have not built a circuit before is to be patient and start with a single light circuit and then move on to parallel circuits with extra lights, and finally, try adding effects like this.  I have made some other cards with Chibitronics lights, but this is the first tutorial for them I have put together. As always, happy crafting and I will see you next time, thanks for stopping by!

Hi everyone, Gaby here with a little shaker card in a monster's belly.  I saw this stamp set and thought about how fun it would be to make it into a mini shaker window.  I used some turquoise card stock, Crumb Cake card stock, 80# and 110# Neenah Solar White  card stock. Copic Ciao markers, Pretty Pink Posh sequins, Stampin' Up! ink, my Stamp Perfect Tool, my Big Shot, and Lawn Fawn dies. Check out the video below.

 

I hope you enjoyed the video, I think this card could be used for several occasions and even as an everyday "hello" card.   Thanks for watching and stopping by; I still have an announcement coming this month and I'm still really excited about it.  Happy crafting!
