I’m a huge fan of Lawn Fawn stamps and dies – if only they were a little bit cheaper here in the UK. I made this card for my grandma’s 86th birthday and she really loved it. I’m waiting for my official lawn fawn pop up box die to arrive – this is one of my home made pop up box creations! But one of my favourite cards ever and it put a smile on my grandma’s face too!
I’ve been meaning to have a play with the Botanical Blooms stamp and die set I got recently from Stampin Up. I love how they bring beams of tropical sunshine to your day. Am now thinking that they would pair up well with flamingos!
I started by using the stamps to create a background paper – not too dissimilar to the ones you can actually buy from Stampin Up, only my handmade version will never run out! Then I die-cut a few of the flowers to add as an embellishment (they cut beautifully by the way – not one problem!), stamped a sentiment and finished with a few Nuvo drops. I just love the bright yellow Nuvo!
This is the first time I’ve used Stampin Up ink pads too – they’re so juicy and bright! I have the brights collection at the moment but am thinking I might go next for the pastels too. Not that I really need anymore ink pads!
These cards are now for sale in my etsy shop for £2:
Had a lovely time yesterday at the craft fair. The free samples of Happy Pills made lots of people smile and the cards were popular too.
