Lawn Fawn Scripty Thanks 2.0

This card is sort of the mirror image of yesterday’s. I love my new Lawn Fawn Scripty Thanks die.

Lawn Fawn Scripty Thanks

Standard

After having brought home several sets of Lawn Fawn after working at the Scrapbook Expo last month, I’m hooked on the brand. Not only are their products made in the USA but everything is cute and oh so perfect for cards for Operation Write Home.

I just received my first online order from them a couple of days ago. Included in my package were bonus items as well – some paper samples and a “smile” stamp. It was a nice surprise.

One of my purchases was the Scripty Thanks die. I love something that will let me make fun cards quickly.

Less is More Week 179 Challenge

Standard

The challenge this week at Less is More is #179 – Earth Tones.

My design is like yesterday’s card for the Operation Write Home VCMP. I wanted to see if I could really make trees if I used the proper colors with my stencil and it worked.

OWH July 4th VCMP Challenge #18

Standard

Operation Write Home had a Virtual Card Making Party for the 4th of July.

The 18th and final challenge was hosted by Cara at Crafting Adventures. Use a faux technique on your card.

My card is another happy accident. For the Texture challenge, my first attempt started by using the Tim Holtz Rays stencil with Distressed Inks to create a rainbow pattern on a card. Then I used a Rays embossing folder with it but the rays didn’t match and the card became trash.  The stencil was sitting in front of me, still covered with ink and I had a VOILA moment.  So, using his handy dandy 12 months of tags June technique, I spritzed some water on the inky stencil and put it ink side down on cardstock. When I pulled the stencil up and used my heat gun to dry it, I realized the resulting image looks as though I was standing in a woods of rainbow hued trees, looking up to a bright sun.

I created a FAUX-rest. (Thank you, thank you, I’m here all week.)

Operation Write Home is having a Virtual Card Making Party for the 4th of July.

The 17th challenge is hosted by Sherry at Bits of Cheer  and is to create a Christmas card using Inchies.

I decided to use OWH Sketch #175 for mine. I tweaked it a bit to add a sentiment. It’s covering part of the inchies but they are there.

OWH July 4th VCMP Challenge #14

Standard

Operation Write Home is having a Virtual Card Making Party for the 4th of July.

The 14th challenge is hosted by Annettemake a Thick Any Hero Card and a Thin version for a hero to send home.

To be honest, neither of these is fully asembled. I used the buttons on the first to represent Thick, and the stamped buttons to represent thin. The AnyHero cards I make feature pictures of my dog. Still, a good exercise in looking out for elements and embellishments that won’t work for cards for heros to send home.
