It’s a Wild Birthday!

Handmade Cards, Seven Hills Crafts DT
Wild For You (Lawn Fawn)

I know it’s Valentines day but I don’t actually send any Valentines cards and my muse generally doesn’t suit the pinks. Instead, I bring you a brightly coloured birthday card!

I’ve had this set for a while and always pull it out for those birthdays where the recipient has a fun personality. These cute little animals can’t fail to put a smile on anyone’s face!

I started out by stamping all the animals from the Lawn Fawn Wild For You set using Versafine Black Onyx Ink onto some watercolour card stock. I coloured them in using my Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers and a water brush. I stuck to light, bright colours so they would stand out from the background. I looked in my stamps and found some good sized leaves in the Lawn Fawn Critters in the Jungle set that would perfectly frame my animals. I stamped and coloured these in the same way as the animals and cut them out with the coordinating dies once dry.

For the background, I blended on some Fired Brick, Spiced Marmalade and Fossilised Amber Distress Ink onto a horizontal A6 card base. On another, I blended on some Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron Distress Ink and cut out two grassy hillside borders so I had something to ground my critters.

Before adhering anything, I stamped out the sentiment from the set in three lines. I wanted to accentuate the ‘WILD’ so I stamped this on some white card stock and fussy cut this out. I then adhered the leaves and one of the grassy borders directly to the background panel. Using some foam tape I then popped up the animals and remaining grassy border.

A few clear sequins finished the scene off nicely!

Beary Good Bookmarks

Handmade Cards, Seven Hills Crafts DT
For You, Dear Bookmarks (Lawn Fawn)

It’s Wednesday again and this week I am bringing you a project I recruited my niece to help out with. She’s really into reading so the Lawn Fawn For You, Deer set was a perfect choice to make some bookmarks. This is such a great one get the kids involved with and they have something durable and usable at the end of it. They also make good extras to give out to friends when posting your handmade cards!

For You, Dear Bookmarks (Lawn Fawn)

The night before, I started out by stamping several lots of the bear from the Lawn Fawn For You, Deer set – both back and front – onto some Clare Fontaine DCP 210 gsm blending card stock with some MFT Black Licorice Hybrid Ink. I used my Copic markers to colour these in and then cut them out with the coordinating dies. At the same time, I also cut some strips of Peacock, Sunflower and Chilli Pepper cardstock. The sizes varied according to the scraps I had but they all measured at least 3cm x 13cm (5 1/4 x 1 1/4 inches). I white heat embossed two of the sentiments from the set, ‘This is a beary good book’ and ‘I can’t bear to lose my place’, onto the card strips.

When my niece arrived the next morning I got her to stamp some of the feathers from the Lawn Fawn Dream set in some Versamark Ink in repeating patterns across the strips of card. We also stamped some stars using some Yeti ink and used a white get pen to add some dots around the feathers. 

For You, Dear Bookmarks (Lawn Fawn)

The construction of the bookmarks is easy as you just have to stick the back and fronts together, making sure that the tummy part in between the arms stays behind the font of the bookmark. To make them more durable, I laminated them, cutting them out and rounding the corners to make it kid safe. Just make sure that you leave enough space around the laminated marks otherwise your bookmarks will peel apart.

Definitely a fun project!

Happy reading!

 

On the Mend

Seven Hills Crafts DT

Hello and happy Wednesday! Today my card on the Seven Hills Crafts blog today is for anyone who is feeling under the weather – I hope it puts a smile on your face! I think the combination of rainbow and Lawn Fawn will always do that.

I started out by stamping six of the big plasters from the Lawn Fawn On the Mend stamp set with some MFT Black Licorice Hybrid Ink onto some blending card stock. I coloured these in with my alcohol markers in rainbow shades and cut them out with the coordinating dies.

On an A6 white card base I stamped the ‘Get Well Soon’ sentiment from Lawn Fawn Get Well Soon stamp set. I then blended some Tumbled Glass and Broken China ink onto the base, flicking additional splatter onto the card around the sentiment.

Once dry, I popped up the plasters on foam tape and adhered them to the card base. A few sequins to tie them together and you have a bright, cute get well soon card that I hope will cheer any patient up!

Cityscape Celebration

Handmade Cards, Seven Hills Crafts DT

Hello, Happy Wednesday! I’ve been a bit under the weather this week so here is a bright and celebratory duo of cards to cheer you up!

Today I have two cards to share with you on the Seven Hills Crafts Blog. I don’t usually send many New Year’s cards out so I wanted to show you another, more generic congratulations option that could be used for any occasion. This idea has been rumbling around in my head for a while and it’s surprisingly simple to create!

I started out with an A2 piece of white watercolour cardstock. Using several shades of blue in my Kuretake Gansai Tambi palette, I painted in a night sky with a vertical gradient. I made sure to leave the very bottom light and towards the top dark so my fireworks would stand out. Once dry, I took a very dry brush and painted in some white firework trail shapes. I used several layers to build up the colour, finishing off with some white and gold splatters. I set this aside to dry completely before mounting to A2 top folding card bases.

From some black cardstock I die cut two cityscapes using the Hero Arts Skyline Fancy die. Using a white get pen, I added a few random vertical lines to give some window reflections. I adhered this straight onto the background panel.

Out of some gold mirror card, I cut two sentiments. The first I cut the date using the Neat and Tangled Journaling Numbers Die. For the more generic card, I used the Lawn Fawn Scripty Congrats. To ground both of these and separate the water from the cityscape, I cut a simple white banner and stamped a sentiment from Altenew Sketchy Cities Abroad set in black ink.

Thanks for reading and I hope you are all having a Happy 2018!

Thank You Letters

Thank You Letters (Lawn Fawn)

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday break. I didn’t get much crafting done whilst I stayed with family and friends so I’m getting back into the groove of crafting as normality slowly creeps back in. The Seven Hills Crafts blog took a break whilst Tara and Rick moved premises. They’re now back open and have a 10% sale going on until Friday so go grab a few bargains whilst they’re still in stock!

Seven Hills Crafts

The blog is now back open and I’m bringing you the first of my Wednesday DT inspirations for 2018. I’ve made a resolution to use more of those stamp sets I’ve not used as much as they deserve and this card featuring Lawn Fawn’s Love Letters stamps was perfect to send as a thank you for some festive pressies!

I started with an A2 piece of Copic friendly Clare Fontaine 210 gsm DCP paper and some MFT Black Licorice Hybrid Ink. I made sure to stamp out the speech bubble that held the sentiment first to ensure it was placed exactly where I wanted it. I then used a variety of the remaining stamps so the card was completely covered, making sure that no two of the same images were next to each other.

Thank You Letters (Lawn Fawn)

I chose some of my favourite Copic markers to colour in the images:

Letters & Envelopes: W4, W2, W1, W00, R22, R32, R20
Ink Bottles & Pens: RV69, RV66, RV63
Birdies: YR24, YR21, Y21, Y00, YR07
Bubble: YR18, YR07, Y38, Y17
Shadows: C3, C00

I trimmed the panel down and mounted it on a top-folding A2 card base in Peacock. A little clear Wink of Stella and some Glossy Accents on the hearts made the finishing touches.

A perfect way to start the new year with some gratitude!

Yeti Wishes

Yeti Wishes

Hello, happy Wednesday! I’m on the Seven Hills Crafts blog again today with another yeti!

Today I have a Christmas card to share with you featuring this cute little yeti from the Mama Elephant Me and My Yeti set. I’ve finally managed to finish and send all my cards for this year with the exception of a few extra special ones I will give to close family and friends. This card uses products from a few different companies, mainly because I had a bunch of die cuts and coloured pieces left over from previous projects and I never let them go to waste!

I started out with an A6 kraft card panel and stamped some of the small snowflakes from the MFT You Make My Heart Melt stamp set in Lawn Fawn Yeti ink, setting aside to dry.

I then stamped the yeti from Mama Elephant’s Me and My Yeti, coloured him in with my alcohol markers and die cut him with the coordinating dies. I had a coloured present left over from a previous project (it’s actually from the Neat & Tangled Berry Merry set) and it fit perfectly between the little yeti’s arms. I cut a stitched tag from a nice bright red cardstock, tied some twine through the top and foam mounted my yeti in the centre.

Yeti Wishes

For the large sentiment, I die cut the Lawn Fawn Scripty Wishes several times and adhered them on top of each other for some dimension. The smaller sentiment is from the MFT Snow Globe Sentiments set, which I gold heat embossed on a banner of black cardstock.

A touch of clear Wink of Stella gives the final finishing touch!

Thanks for reading.

Season’s Greetings with Winter Owl

Handmade Cards, Seven Hills Crafts DT
Winter Owl (Lawn Fawn)

Hello and happy Wednesday! I’m on the Seven Hills Crafts blog again today with some festive inspiration!

I promised myself this year that I would take out some of the older stamps in my stash so I could revive and get the most use out of them. I hate to think that some of the cutest stamps stay hidden away, never to see the front of a card again! This week I chose the Lawn Fawn Winter Owl

Winter Owl (Lawn Fawn)

I started out with an A6 card base of Bristol Smooth card, treating it with a powder tool before stamping the Lawn Fawn Winter Owl repeatedly in some Versamark Ink until the panel was covered. I then sprinkled on some gold embossing powder and heat set. I took out my Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers in festive shades of green, red and brown, colouring in the owls and pulling out the colour with my water brush. I used two markers for each colour to give some depth to the colouring.

Winter Owl (Lawn Fawn)

For the greeting, I used a sentiment from the MFT Snow Globe Sentiments set, white heat embossing onto some kraft card stock and trimming the edge into a banner. I needed some matching card strips to mount the sentiment so I coloured some scraps with the red and green markers, adhering these to the panel beneath the foam mounted sentiment strip.

A bright and festive card that revived one of my older-but-never-forgotten sets! Check out this month’s DT inspiration post for the Monthly Challenge to see an alternative colour combination using metallics.

Frosty Snowflakes

Frosty Snowflakes

Hello everyone and a happy Wednesday to you! I’m on the Seven Hills Crafts blog again today and I am sharing some frosty snowflakes. Snowflakes are always a Christmas classic and I think this design would be easy to replicate if anyone still needs to create some last minute cards!

I started out with ink blending some blue tones onto a white A6 card base, splattering with some clean clear water to give that frosty effect.

Whilst I left the background panel to dry I die cut a stack of the MFT Let it Snowflake Too Dienamics and Lawn Fawn Scripty Merry Dies from some white card stock. I adhered several of the Merry die cuts together for dimension, covered with Versamark ink and heat embossed with some silver embossing powder. 

Frosty Snowflakes

I adhered the snowflakes to the back panel, scattering them across the card and trimming any overhanging crystals. I added a black banner across the centre of the card to make the silver die cut stand out. A white heat embossed sentiment from the Lawn Fawn Merry Messages set on another smaller piece of black card, trimming one edge into a banner.

Thanks for reading!
