Zesty Slimline Birthday Card featuring Lawn Fawn

Hi friends. I couldn’t resist but CASE this card from Lawn Fawn Design Team member, Tammy Stark, featuring the cute Zesty Lemon Die. I used similar colors on the background but a different technique, changed the sentiment and a different border.

For this card, I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock to 7″ x 8-1/2″ and scored at 3-1/2″ to create the card base. I diecut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock with the stitched slimline frame from the Essentials Slimline Die. I also cut a piece measuring 3-1/8 x 6-1/8″.

I used Tim Holtz Picked Raspberry, Squeezed Lemonade, and Wild Honey Distress Inks fro the background, using the ink smoosh technique and also added some splatters. I also added white splatters with White Acrylic Paint.

I die cut the lemons and limes from Stampin’ Up! So Saffron 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock and Simon Says Stamp 100# Green Apple Cardstock using the Lawn Fawn Zesty Lemon Die. The leaves I die cut from Simon Says Stamp 100# Green Leaf Cardstock, the flowers, piths, and whole lemon backs from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock and the flower centers and cheeks from Lawn Fawn Guava 100# 8 1/2″ x 11″ Cardstock.

I colored the images with Tim Holtz Squeezed Lemonade, Mowed Lawn, and Rustic Wilderness Distress Oxide Inks.

I die cut the sentiment word ‘ZEST’ 2x from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock using Lawn Fawn Henry’s ABCs and colored one set with Tim Holtz Picked Raspberry Distress Ink. I stamped the rest of the sentiment directly onto the card from the Lawn Fawn Happy Happy Happy Clear Stamps with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

I finished the card by adding white highlights with White Gel Pen.

I left the inside of the card blank.

Two Mini Slimline Cards featuring Lawn Fawn Zesty Lemon

Hi friends. I couldn’t resist getting the cute Zesty Lemon Die set from Lawn Fawn when I saw it! For my first cards I decided to make some embossed backgrounds and my distress sprays. These will also be available in my Etsy Shop.

For the both cards, I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock to 7″ x 6″ and scored at 3-1/2″ to create the card bases. I diecut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock with the stitched frame 3x to stack them and the scallop rectangle from the Queen & Company Foundation 17 dies. I also die cut one of the stitched smaller rectangles from the same set as well as a piece measuring 3 x 5-3/4″.

I embossed the two rectangles with the Darice 5 x 7 Plaid Embossing Folder then colored them using Distress Sprays. I used Broken China and Salty Ocean for the first card and Picked Raspberry and Carved Pumpkin for the second. In retrospect, I would water down the colors on the pink/orange background a bit more. Once all was dry, I added some splashed with White Acrylic Paint.

For the lemons and leaves, I die cut them from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock with the Lawn Fawn Zesty Lemon set. I used Distress Oxide Inks to color them. I used Squeezed Lemonade for the lemons, Mowed Lawn and Rustic Wilderness for the leaves and Picked Raspberry for the flower centers and the cheeks.

For the sentiments, on the first card I used the Honey Bee Tailgate Alphabet Dies to spell out “ZEST” which I die cut from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock (which I colored with Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink) and Simon Says Stamp 100lb Black Card Stock. The rest of the sentiment came from the Lawn Fawn Sweet Friends Stampset and was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto the same white cardstock.

On the second card, I diecut the “hello” from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock (which I colored with Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink) and Simon Says Stamp 100lb Black Card Stock using the Simon Says stamp Bold Hello Die. I added some shimmer with a Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Sparkle Pen.

I left the insides of the cards blank.

Shop Your Stash Day 3: Making Summer Cards Using Honeybee Stamps Frappe Shake Card Dies

While it’s probably no surprise too many that I love coffee, I love coffee stamps and dies even more. This Honeybee Stamps Frappe Shake Card Dieset as well as their Honey Bee COFFEE CUP CARD Dies are my favorites! They have everything you need to make cute coffee cup and frappe cup shaped cards and shakers. And they fit in an A2 size envelope which is great!

I thought it would be fun to reuse this dieset to make some non-coffee cards, instead make brightly colored summer beverages. I don’t know if you all remember the rocket bomb popsicles that were red, white and blue. I remember many summers as a kid eating those popsicles (they were refreshing and turned my tongue red or blue, depending on which end I ate first—what could be better??). LOL That was the inspiration for my first card.

I started by diecutting card bases using the large card, coffee cup, and the whipped cream dies in the set from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ 3 times. I also diecut 3 sets of the lid and its rim from Acetate.

I also went ahead and added Tim Holtz Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Ink to the lid section of the card base on all 3 cards to create a background for the lid. Then, used Tim Holtz Candied Apple Distress Oxide Ink, Tim Holtz Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Ink and Tim Holtz Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide Ink to create an ombre effect on the coffee cup, leaving the middle area white. I sprayed some water onto it with my Tim Holtz DISTRESS SPRAYER and blotted it with a paper towel.

While the ink dried, I diecut the straw and the larger circle from the dieset from a piece of Doodlebug Designs Yankee Doodle 6 x 6 Pattern Paper (no longer available) and used the smallest star from the Sizzix Framelits Stars Die Set and Tim Holtz Idea-ology 8 x 8 Paper Stash METALLIC KRAFT STOCK to diecut a small star. I adhered the star to the circle, the coffee cup and whipped cream to the card base and then cut the straw in half and adhered it to the front of the card using Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue. I adhered the circle to the card front and added some silver confetti stars from Fanci-Fetti Stars (silver) Party Accessory to the whipped cream and then the clear lid on top of the stars (I used Ranger GLOSSY ACCENTS Glue Dimensional Adhesive to adhere the acetate and metallic stars).

On the inside of the card, I stamped “Happy 4th of July” with a very old stampset I had (sorry don’t know where it came from) using Tim Holtz Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide Ink and added 3 silver stars.

Card Inside

For the second card, I decided to make a delicious watermelon smoothie. Who doesn’t like a tasty frozen watermelon beverage on a hot summer day?!? I’m now craving a smoothie while writing this post. LOL.

For this card, I started by using Tim Holtz Candied Apple Distress Oxide Ink, and Tim Holtz Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide Ink to create an ombre effect on the coffee cup. I cut a small triangle from some Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ and also inked it up with the distress oxide inks. I sprayed some water onto it with my Tim Holtz DISTRESS SPRAYER and blotted it with a paper towel.


While the ink dried, I diecut the straw from a piece of Brutus Monroe Fresh Melon 6 x 6 Paper Pad. I adhered the coffee cup and whipped cream to the card base and then cut the straw in half and adhered it to the front of the card using Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue. I added Nuvo EBONY BLACK Crystal Drops to the whipped cream and then adhered the clear lid on top of the stars (I used Ranger GLOSSY ACCENTS Glue Dimensional Adhesive to adhere the acetate). I cut a slit in the watermelon slice and adhered it to the card. I stamped a sentiment from Honey Bee Stamps SHAKE IT OFF Clear Stamp Set onto a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I fussycut it and adhered it to the card front and added more Black Nuvo drops. I left the inside of the card blank.


And if I’m making fruity drinks for the summer, I can’t forget about a refreshing frozen lemonade! Yum!

For this card, I started by using Tim Holtz Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide Ink to create an ombre effect on the coffee cup. I sprayed some water onto it with my Tim Holtz DISTRESS SPRAYER and blotted it with a paper towel. Then I stamped a couple of slices from the Stampin’ Up! Lemon Zest Clear-Mount Stamp Set (which was retired recently) and Ranger Archival Chrome Yellow Ink onto the cup and one onto some Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″.

While the ink dried, I diecut the straw from a piece of Catherine Pooler Designs Black Tie Gala Patterned Paper. I adhered the coffee cup and whipped cream to the card base and then cut the straw in half and adhered it to the front of the card using Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue. I added Nuvo DANDELION YELLOW Glossy Drops to the whipped cream and then adhered the clear lid on top (I used Ranger GLOSSY ACCENTS Glue Dimensional Adhesive to adhere the acetate). I cut a slit in the lemon slice and adhered it to the card. I stamped a sentiment from Stampin’ Up! Lemon Zest Clear-Mount Stamp Set (which was retired recently) onto a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and cut it out with a 1-3/4 inch punch. I adhered to the card with 3M Foam Tape

On the inside of the card, I stamped a sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Lemon Zest Clear-Mount Stamp Set (which was retired recently) with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and lemon slices with Tim Holtz Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide Ink.

Shop Your Stash Day 2: Slimline Cards

In today’s tutorial, I am making slimline cards. I’ve seen these popping up all over instagram and youtube and I figured I would make one too ( I mean… I have to right?!? 🙂 LOL). Since I do not have any slimline dies yet (I stress YET), I will prove you can make them with any supplies you have in your stash and no dies necessary. Even the envelope tutorial I found on YouTube makes it super simple to make a slimeline envelope.

For this first card, I began by cutting a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 7 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 3-1/2″. Then I diecut 3 balloons from Paper Accents Vellum Variety Pack 8 1/2 x 11 in. Assorted 25 pc. using the Lifestyle Crafts Quickutz Nesting Balloons (Dies). I adhered the bottom halves to the card, overlapping them. I used Tonic Medium Nuvo Glue Pen to adhere them and cut off the excess.

Balloon Birthday Front

I stamped a sentiment from Catherine Pooler Designs WooHoo Stamp Set onto a scrap of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and fussycut it out. I adhered it using Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue. I embellished it by adding some string and bows to the balloons using my Micron 05 Pen, shimmer with the Spectrum Noir Sparkle Clear Fine Glitter Brush Pen and also added some Tonic Gloss Simply White Nuvo Crystal Drops and Tonic Gloss Midnight Blue Nuvo Crystal Drops to the balloons.

On the inside of the card, I adhered the leftover pieces of the balloons on the front of the card to the top portion and stamped ‘Happy Birthday! using the free gift stamp I received from Lawn Fawn for my birthday month and Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. Yes! you can get freebies for your birthday! 🙂 I couldn’t find this anywhere so I don’t think this particular tiny sentiment stamp can be purchased but there are a ton of other Lawn Fawn Happy Birthday stamps you can use.

Balloon Birthday Inside

I also made an envelope using Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″. I found a great tutorial on Youtube from Jenny Card Designs. She also provides a facebook link with the template. I added some more of the vellum balloons to the edge of the envelope. Go check her out on Youtube!

For the second card, I decided to make some summer fruity cards. I started by cutting a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 7 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 3-1/2″ to create the card base. Next, I cut two pieces of green gingham pattern paper from Brutus Monroe Fresh Melon 6 x 6 Paper Pad to 3-1/2 x 6 and adhered it to the card using Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue. I made sure to have the section where the two pieces meet to not be centered so it can be covered by the watermelon slice.

Watermelon Slice Card Front

Next, I moved on to creating my watermelon slice (wedge?). For this I cut a large triangle from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ that was a bit taller than my card front then using the a 5-1/2″ circle die from Simon Says Stamp NESTED CIRCLES Wafer Dies cut the edge of the wider part. To create the rind and white pith (I think that’s what it is called), I used the 5″ and 5-1/2″ circle dies to cut out a half circle from a piece of the green gingham pattern paper from Brutus Monroe Fresh Melon 6 x 6 Paper Pad and the 4-1/2″ and 5-1/2″ circle dies to to cut out a half circle from a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″.

I added Tim Holtz Twisted Citron Distress Ink to the pith and sprayed it with water with my Tim Holtz DISTRESS SPRAYER. Then added Tim Holtz Candied Apple Distressed Ink and Festive Berries Distressed Ink to the watermelon wedge. I leftit very light towards the wider side and then sprayed water on it as well. Once the inks were dried, I adhered all three pieces to create my watermelon wedge and adhered it to the card base, trimming off any excess at the bottom. I drew on some seeds with my Sakura Pigma Micron 08 Pen and added some highlights to them with Uni-Ball Signo White Broad Point Gel Pen.

Watermelon Slice Card Closeup

For my sentiment, I used Lawn Fawn’s Baked With Love Stampset, Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and my Stampin’ Up! Stamparatus to stamp it on a curve. The easiest way to do this, I have found is to curve the text around the circle die I used for the watermelon.

To finish off this card, I added Love From Lizi Red Glitter Pinstripe peel-offs and Nuvo Drops in Autum Red. I left the inside of the card blank for this one. And again I made an envelope using Stampin Up! Real Red 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock. Tutorial on Youtube from Jenny Card Designs.

And since lemon cards are all the rage right now. I decided to break out my lemon stampset and builder punch from Stampin’ Up!. I began this card by I started by cutting a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 7 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 3-1/2″ to create the card base. Next, I cut a piece of pattern paper from Brutus Monroe Fresh Squeeze 6 x 6 Paper Pad to 1-1/2 x 8-1/2″and adhered it to the bottom of the card front.

One of A Kind Card Front

Next, using the Stampin’ Up! Lemon Zest Clear-Mount Stamp Set (which was retired recently), I stamped several lemon slices and whole lemons onto Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with Catherine Pooler Designs Limoncello Ink, one slice with Catherine Pooler Designs Party Dress and Catherine Pooler Designs Bellini Inks, and several leaved with Catherine Pooler Designs Lime Rickey Ink. I used the Stampin’ Up! Lemon Builder Punch (retred) and a 1-3/4″ Circle Punch to cut out the leaves and lemons.

I arranged them on the card front and adhered them, popping some up with 3M Foam Tape. I added some highlights to them with Uni-Ball Signo White Broad Point Gel Pen.

For the sentiment I used the Honey Bee Stamps BEE-YOU-TIFUL Sentiments stampset. I used Tsukineko Versamark EMBOSS INK PAD and WOW OPAQUE BRIGHT WHITE Super Fine Embossing Powder to heat emboss it onto a piece of Simon Says Stamp 100# Black Card Stock and then cut it down to 1/2 x 2-3/8″. I adhered it to the top portion fo teh card and then stamped the word “K-I-N-D” with Simon Says Stamp Grid Play Alphas stampset (no longer available) and Catherine Pooler Designs Midnight Ink onto some Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ and adhered those on top the lemons. I added some Ranger Glossy Accents Glue Dimensional Adhesive to those letters to finish off the card.

And again I made an envelope using some dark pink cardstock from my stash (not sure where it is from becasue it is soooo old). Tutorial on Youtube from Jenny Card Designs.

When Life Gives You Lemons Make Lemonade…

Hello friends. Hope you are all safe and healthy. And if you are struggling to cope with everything going on in our world right now, hang in there because ‘this too shall pass’. Speaking of old adages, “When Life Gives You Lemons Make Lemonade” is very fitting for these times we are in as well. While it’s very easy to focus on the scary and sad stuff going on, we have to find the bright spots too — the healthcare workers saving lives, families coming together, babies being born, spending time with our pets (one of my faves right now)…

These bright and cheerful cards were made using the Catherine Pooler Designs Make Lemonade Stampset (Out of stock-maybe discontinued). It was a limited release in March, I believe. It’s a tiny stampset but was super fun to color. I made one of them into a shaker (a tiny shaker:)).

For the first card, I began by cutting a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4. I stamped the image onto a scrap of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and set it aside to dry.

I stamped the flower outline from the stampset with Catherine Pooler Designs Limoncello Ink onto the card base. Next, I diecut another piece with Catherine Pooler Designs Composition Label Dies and then used a direct-to-paper technique to add color with Catherine Pooler Designs Party Dress Ink Pad. I adhered the label shape to the pink cardstock and trimmed around, leaving a border.

Next, I colored the image with COPICS. I used BG000 + 0 for the bottle; Y11 +Y06 + Y13 for the lemons; Y11 +Y06 + Y13 + Y15 for the sliced lemon; YG06 + YG07 for the leaves; RV09 and Y06 + Y15 for the straw; RV10 + RV11 + RV14 for the flowers. I stamped the bubbles with Catherine Pooler Designs It’s A Boy Ink. I fussycut the image out.

I stamped the sentiment onto the top left corner of the label shape with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered the image to the label with Tombow Mono Liquid Glue and popped up the whole thing with 3M Foam Tape. I finished off the card by adding dots of Nuvo Sea Breeze Jewel Drops to simulate bubbles, Nuvo Ebony Black Crystal Drops and some Nuvo Dandelion Yellow Crystal Drops around the tag.

I kept the inside of the card very simple. I stamped the image with the Catherine Pooler Designs Limoncello Ink.

For the second card, I decided to make a shaker card. I love shaker cards, even if they are a bit of a pain to mail. They are just fun to make and shake! I started by cutting a piece of Simon Says Stamp 100lb Orange Peel, 8-1/2 x 11″ Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to make a card base. Next, I cut a piece of Catherine Pooler Designs – 6 x 6 Patterned Paper – Black Tie Gala to 3-1/2 x 4-3/4″ and rounded the corners of that panel and the card base with my We R Memory 1/4 & 1/2″ Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper. I also colored the paper with Catherine Pooler Designs Lime Rickey Ink and adhered it to the card base.

I diecut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with the Catherine Pooler Designs Sprinkles Mini Cover Plate Die, I stamped the sentiment from the stampset onto the smallest white rectangle and adhered it to the card.

I stamped the image onto a scrap of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and set it aside to dry. I colored it with COPICS. I used Y13 + YG03 + YG01 + YG25 for the lime on the left; B0000 + 0 for the bottle; YR16 + YR18 and YG03 + YG25 for the straw; Y06 + Y18, R81 + R85, and V25 + BV17 for the flowers; and YG06 + G07 for the leaves .

I fussycut out the image and also cut the center of the bottle with a craft knife. I diecut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with the

For the second card, I decided to make a shaker card. I love shaker cards, even if they are a bit of a pain to mail. They are just fun to make and shake! I started by cutting a piece of Simon Says Stamp 100lb Orange Peel, 8-1/2 x 11″ Cardstock to 5 x 7-5/8″ and scored at 3-13/16″ to make a card base. Next, I cut a piece of Catherine Pooler Designs – 6 x 6 Patterned Paper – Black Tie Gala to 3-1/2 x 4-3/4″ and rounded the corners of that panel and the card base with my We R Memory 1/4 & 1/2″ Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper. I also colored the paper with Catherine Pooler Designs Lime Rickey Ink and adhered it to the card base.

I diecut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with the Catherine Pooler Designs Sprinkles Mini Cover Plate Die. I used Catherine Pooler Designs It’s A Boy Ink and an ink blender tool to add color to the panel. I used a very light hand to make it very pale blue. I cut it down to a size that would fit the window in the bottle. Then I also ink blended and other piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ and adhered it behind the piece that I previously diecut and ink blended.

I added a piece of acetate behind the shaker window in the bottle, some 3M Foam Tape, and some flat clear sequins from my stash added it to the card. I finished it off by adding some Nuvo Sea Breeze Jewel Drops around the card.

On the inside of the card, I cut out a panel of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″ and a left over piece of the pattern paper to 3/4 x 3-1/2″ and adhered it to the bottom of the panel, then rounded the corners before adhereing it to the card base.
