Pop Up St. Patrick’s Day Scene Card

Lawn Fawn Oh Gnome!

Hello friends. Today I’m bringing you a cute pop up scene card featuring Lawn Fawn’s Oh Gnome! Stampset and Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Pop-Up Die. This is fun die that can elevate any card for every occasion.

For this card, I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 4-1/4 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to create the card base. Then, die cut three of the Lawn Fawn Leafy Tree Backdrop: Landscape with Stampin’ Up! Soft Suede 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock for the branches and Lawn Fawn 6×6 Perfectly Plaid Spring Petite Paper Pack (I believe this is no longer available but any pattern paper will work) for the tree top/leaves. I also cut two hillsides using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Pop-Up Die from Stampin’ Up! Old Olive 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock. For the tree on the inside for the card, I cut off the border and for the hillside on the front I used just the larger protion of the pop up piece.

For the sky on the outside of the card, I cut a piece of some random Lawn Fawn Paper Paper I had in my stash (it either came in a Simon Says Stamp kit or sent with a Lawn Fawn order) to 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″. For the inside, I used Lawn Fawn 6×6 Perfectly Plaid Spring Petite Paper Pack cut to the same size. If you need a tutorial on how to assemble the Pop Up Card mechanism, please watch this Lawn Fawn video.

I diecut the mushroom house from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ using the Lawn Cuts Custom Craft Die-mushroom House and colored it with Copic Markers. I used RV000 & 0 and R81 & R83 for the roof; E25, E27 & E49 for the house; YG25, YG17 & G07 for the door and window; N4 & N7 for the chimney; Y13 & Y06 for the keyhole and window backs; and V01 & V04 for the butterflies. I also added some embellishments with a black marker and a white gel pen.

I stamped all the images I needed from the Lawn Fawn Oh Gnome! Stampset and the shamrocks from the Simon Says Stamps WOOLY-LUCKY stampset onto some Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored them with Copic Markers and die cut using the coordinating dies.

I used YG17 & G07 for the shamrocks; E57 & E29, R81, R83, & R85, RV00, RV10 & RV11 for the mushrooms; N4, N5 & N7 for the cart. For the gnomes I used E00, E01 & R20 for the faces; C00, C1 & 0 for mustaches and beards; R14 & R27, R81 & R83, Y06 (belt buckle), and N4 & N7 (shoes and belt) for the red gnome; YR04 &YR09, YR12 & YR04, E23 & E25 (hair), and N1 & 0 (apron) for the orange gnome; Y13 & Y18, Y11 & Y02, Y06 (belt buckle), and N4 & N7 (shoes and belt) for the yellow gnome; G07 & G09, YG25 & YG17, E23 & E25 (hair), C1& 0 (apron), and N7 (shoes) for the green gnome; BG01 & BG05, BG10, BG15 & BG32, Y13 (belt buckle), and N4 & N7 (shoes an00 & BVd belt) for the aqua gnome; B24 & B26, B12 & B14, Y13 (belt buckle), and N4 & N7 (shoes and belt) for the blue gnome; YG25 & YG17, Y18 for the tiny daisy patch; YG25 & YG17, Y13 & Y18, C5 & C7 for the large daisy; and YG25 & YG17, V01 & V04 for the tulip and bud.

Stenciled Background St. Patrick’s Day Card

Simon Says Stamp and Scrapbook.com

Hello friends. Here’s a quick but very cute St. Patrick’s Day card featuring Simon Says Stamp’s Wooly Lucky Stampset (this came out last year I believe). It’s a very simple card with a subtle stenciled background. I love using stencils for backgrounds because it makes it so quick. And who’s got time to make complicated backgrounds these days?!? Not me.

For this card, I cut 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″ to create the card base and a piece from Neenah 80lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″. I used the Scrapbook.com Shamrocks 6 x 8″ Stencil with Catherine Pooler Garden Party Ink to create the background. I die cut it with the largest dot die from Catherine Pooler’s Scallops & Dots Dies which measures 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″.

I stamped the llama and two rainbows from the Simon Says Stamp’s Wooly Lucky Stampset onto some Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with Memento Tuxedo Black.

I colored the images with Copic colors. I used W0, W1 & 0, R20, & C7 for the llama; G07 & G09, C7 & C9, Y15 & Y17 for the hat and bow; YG03 for the shamrocks; YG03, YG17, G07, Y15 & Y17 for the blanket; R17 & R27, YR04 & YR07, YG17 & G07, B02 & B04, BV08 & BV17 for the rainbow; and BG000 & 0 for the clouds. I fussy cut all the images.

I stamped the sentiment from the from Lawn Fawn Hats Off to You Clear Stamps onto the card panel with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, then using my MISTI stamped over it with Versamark Ink, heat embossed it with Ranger CLEAR Embossing Powder.

Before adhereing the images to the card panel, I cut a piece of Tim Holtz Idea-ology 8 x 8 Paper Stash Metallic Jewels Kraft to 3-1/2 x 4-3/4″. I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the llama.

I finished the card by adding Nuvo Crystal Drops – Metallic Bright Gold.

I left the inside of the card blank and just added two images I had previously stamped from the same stamp set.
