Create-a-Card: 19th Edition

Hi all;

I’m back with another Create a Card Post and this time I’m using some stamps from one of my favourite manufacturers – Lawn Fawn.  I own just about every set of these stamps and if you’ve been in the store looking for alphabet stamps you’ve heard me rave about this company.  The set that inspired this card is ‘Good Fortune’.  Here are the supplies I used for the card:

good fortune supplies

  • Jet Black Archival Ink
  • Water Brush
  • Tim Holtz Scissors
  • Glue Glider Pro
  • Acrylic Block
  • Spica Pen in Silver
  • Hero Arts Card base
  • water color paper
  • foam dots
  • Hero Arts Pale Tomato Mid-tone ink pad *love this colour*
  • New Hero Arts Daubers in: Tide Pool, Pale Tomato, Neon Purple & Butter Cup – I am going to have so much fun with these

And here is the card:

Instructions:

  • Choose a card base and cut a panel of water color paper to size (5 x 4)
  • Shake daubers and apply color by sweeping across water colour paper from one direction not quite reaching the other side
  • Stamp the images from “Good Fortune” with the archival ink onto a white scrap – I tend to use Bazzil or neenah solar white for most of my stamping. In fact I just bought a whole ream of Neenah Solar White at the shop – we can now order it in packs of 250!
  • pick your sentiment from the “Good Fortune” set and stamp in banner with Pale Tomato Ink (that will tie it in nicely with the dauber)
  • Stamp the chopsticks on the card front and adhere card front to card base
  • Use the Dauber to apply some of the Tide Pool ink to your Kraft Mat and use water brush to pick it up and color in the box
  • Use Spica to color in the box handle
  • apply the banner sentiment with glue glider
  • apply takeout box with the foam dots for dimension

Done!  I gave this card to my sister who celebrated a milestone birthday this week – happy birthday Susan.

Meghan found a very clever card made by Amber of Damask Love over on Pinterest using this stamp set – {check it out}.
