Pattern Paper vs. Ink Blending (feat. Lawn Fawn Strawberry Dies)

Hi friends. I saw a video by Nicol Spohr comparing these two techniques with Easter Cards and I thought it would be cute to try it with the strawberry dies from Lawn Fawn.

For the first card, I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock to 7 x10″ and scored at 5″ to create the card base. I also cut a piece of Lawn Fawn GOTTA HAVE GINGHAM RAINBOW 6 x 6 Collection Pack cut to 4-3/4″ x 6″ and a piece of Doodlebug CUTE AND CRAFTY 12×12 Inch Petite Print Assortment Paper Pack cut to 4-3/4 x 6-3/4″ for the top panel. To seperate the two papers I added Love From Lizi Pin Stripe Peel-Off Stickers in Lilac Mirror.

I diecut the bowl, strawberries, and leaves from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock with the Lawn Fawn Strawberry Patch Die Cuts and Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Strawberry Die Cuts. Then used distress oxide inks to color all the pieces. I used Tim Holtz Worn Lipstick and Candied Apple Distress Oxide Inks for the strawberry fronts and sprayed some water on them with a Distress Sprayer bottle, Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide Ink for the strawberry backs, Black Soot Distress Ink for the eyes and mouth, Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Ink for the cheeks, Peeled Paint and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide Inks for the leaves, Broken China Distress Oxide Ink for the bowl, Squeezed Lemonade, Worn Lipstick and Tumbled Glass for the flowers.

After I adhered all the images to the card, I stamped a bee and a bee trail onto a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock from the Simon Says Clear Stamps BEE YOURSELF Stampset with Memento Tuxedo Ink and colored it with Copic Markers. I used Y13, Y17 & Y18, N5 & N8, R20, BG000 & 0. I popped him up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped a sentiment from Lawn Fawn HOW YOU BEAN STRAWBERRIES ADD-ON Clear Stamps and Dies onto a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Ink and cut it to 3/8 x 2-7/8″.

I finished it off by adding some highlights to the strawberries with a White Gel Pen and Tonic Ruby Slipper Nuvo Glitter Drops to the white flowers and Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal Drops to the eyes.

On the inside of the card, I adhered a piece of Lawn Fawn GOTTA HAVE GINGHAM RAINBOW 6 x 6 Collection Pack cut to 1 x 5″ and a piece of 1-3/16 x 5″ of Doodlebug CUTE AND CRAFTY 12×12 Inch Petite Print Assortment Paper Pack. Then diecut the word ‘happy’ from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock with Honey Bee Stamps Donut Worry Dies (retired) and colored it with Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide Ink to create an ombre effect. I stamped a sentiment from the Lawn Fawn How You Bean? Stampset with Memento Tuxedo Ink. I also added a small strawberry to the bottom.

For the second card, I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock to 7 x10″ and scored at 5″ to create the card base and another cut to 4-3/4 x 6″, which I inked with Tim Holtz Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink and sprayed some water on them with a Distress Sprayer bottle. I also cut a piece of Lawn Fawn GOTTA HAVE GINGHAM RAINBOW 6 x 6 Collection Pack to 4-3/4 x 6-3/4″ for the top panel. To seperate the two papers I added Love From Lizi Pin Stripe Peel-Off Stickers – Gold Mirror Moondust.

I diecut the bowl, strawberries, and flowers from Doodlebug CUTE AND CRAFTY 12×12 Inch Petite Print Assortment Paper Pack, the eyes, mouth and flower centers from Simon Says Stamp 100# Black Cardstock, the leaves from Authentique 6 x 6 Emerald Papers (retired) and the cheeks from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock.

Then I used distress oxide inks to color the strawberry fronts, the bowl and the leaves to add some dimension. I used Tim Holtz Candied Apple Distress Oxide Ink for the strawberry fronts, Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Ink for the cheeks, Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide Ink for the leaves, Broken China Distress Oxide Ink for the bowl.

After I adhered all the images to the card, again I stamped a bee and a bee trail onto a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock from the Simon Says Clear Stamps BEE YOURSELF Stampset with Memento Tuxedo Ink and colored it with Copic Markers. I used Y13, Y17 & Y18, N5 & N8, R20, BG000 & 0. I popped him up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used the same sentiment as the previous card and cut it to 3/8 x 2-7/8″. I finished off the card by adding some highlights to the strawberries with a White Gel Pen and Tonic Ruby Slipper Nuvo Glitter Drops to the white flowers and Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal Drops to the eyes.

On the inside of the card, I adhered a piece of Lawn Fawn GOTTA HAVE GINGHAM RAINBOW 6 x 6 Collection Pack cut to 1 x 5″ and diecut the word ‘happy’ from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock with Honey Bee Stamps Donut Worry Dies (retired) and colored it with Worn Lipstick and Candied Apple Distress Oxide Inks to create an ombre effect. I stamped a sentiment from the Lawn Fawn How You Bean? Stampset with Memento Tuxedo Ink. I also added a small strawberry to the bottom.

Three Fall Cards Using the Honey Bee Stamps Patchwork Pumpkin Stampset

I love this new Patchwork Pumpkin Stampset from Honey Bee Stamps! You can create all kinds of cute pumpkins. You can also add flowers and the coordinating dies makes it easy to cut everything out. I made three cards using different color papers and coloring methods but with the same embossing powder. I wanted to see how to create different cards by just making subtle changes. Using pattern papers and embossing folders is also an easy way to add interest.

For the first card, I started 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″ to make the card base and cut a piece of the watercolor leaf paper from the Honey Bee Stamps Halloween Harvest 6×6 Paper Pad to 4 x 5-1/4″ and another of the purple leaf paper to 2 x 5-1/4″.

I used Versamark Ink to stamp several of the pattern pumpkins, leaves, curly vines and the stem from the Honey Bee Stamps Patchwork Pumpkin Stampset onto some Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ and heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder. Then diecut all the pieces with the oval die included in the coordinating dieset. I used Tim Holtz Tumbled Glass and Broken China Distress Inks to color the pumpkin and Crushed Olive and Mowed Lawn to color the leaves and vines. I used 3M Foam Tape to pop up the center piece of the pumpkin and some of the leaves. Before adhering it to the card I added Love From Lizi Straight Peel-Off Stickers in Gold.

I stamped the sentiment from the Honey Bee Stamps Patchwork Pumpkin Stampset with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder onto a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ and diecut it with the coordinating dies. I added a little Mowed Lawn Distress Ink around the edges.

On the inside of the card, I cut a piece of the same watercolor leaf paper from the Honey Bee Stamps Halloween Harvest 6×6 Paper Pad to 1 x 5-1/4″ and stamped a sentiment from Honey Bee Stamps Autumn Stamp Set with Mowed Lawn Distress Ink.

For the second card, I started by cutting a piece of Catherine Pooler Sand Dunes 8-1/2 x 11″ Cardstock (discontinued-any kraft cardstock will work) to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to make the card base and cut a piece of the purple paper from the Honey Bee Stamps Halloween Harvest 6×6 Paper Pad to 4 x 5-1/4″.

I used Versamark Ink to stamp several of the pattern pumpkins, leaves, curly vines and the stem from the Honey Bee Stamps Patchwork Pumpkin Stampset onto some Catherine Pooler Sand Dunes 8-1/2 x 11″ Cardstock (retired) and heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder. Then diecut all the pieces with the oval die included in the coordinating dieset. I used Tim Holtz Mustard Seed and Carved Pumpkin Distress Inks to color the pumpkin and Crushed Olive and Mowed Lawn to color the leaves and vines. I used 3M Foam Tape to pop up the center piece of the pumpkin and some of the leaves.

I diecut the sentiment from the Honey Bee Stamps Autumn Honey Cuts and Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ 3x and adhered them together. I colored the bottom of the word with Mowed Lawn Distress Ink to create an ombre effect. I adhered it onto the pumpkin and stamped the rest of the sentiment from Honey Bee Stamps Autumn Stamp Set with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder onto a piece of the white leaf pattern paper from the Honey Bee Stamps Halloween Harvest 6×6 Paper Pad. I trimmed it down to 1/2 x 1-7/8″ before adhering to the card.

I finished it off by adding some Love From Lizi Pin Stripe Peel-Off Stickers in Gold Mirror Moondust.

On the inside of the card, I cut a piece of the same purple paper from Honey Bee Stamps Halloween Harvest 6×6 Paper Pad to 1 x 5-1/4″ and stamped a sentiment from Honey Bee Stamps Happy Fall Y’all Stamp Set with Carved Pumpkin Distress Ink.

For the third card, I kept thing a little simpler. I started by cutting a piece of Stampin’ Up! Night of Navy 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to make the card base. I embossed the front to the card with one of the embossing folders from the Queen & Co’s Embossing Folder Bundle.

This time, I used Versamark Ink to stamp several of the pattern pumpkins, leaves, curly vines, flowers and the stem from the Honey Bee Stamps Patchwork Pumpkin Stampset onto some Stampin’ Up! Night of Navy 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder. Tip: Make sure to use a good amount of anti-static powder when using embossing powder on dark cardstock or it will stick where you don’t want. Then diecut all the pieces with the oval die included in the coordinating dieset. I colored the leaves, vine sand flowers with Prismacolor Pencils.

I diecut the sentiment from the Honey Bee Stamps Autumn Honey Cuts and Tim Holtz Idea-ology 8 x 8 Paper Stash Metallic Kraft Stock. I adhered it onto the pumpkin and stamped the rest of the sentiment from Honey Bee Stamps Autumn Stamp Set with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder onto a piece of Stampin’ Up! Night of Navy 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock. I trimmed it down to 3/8 x 7/8″ before adhering to the card.

On the inside of the card, I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 4 x 5-1/4″ and left it blank.
