Easter Cards featuring Lawn Fawn

March 26th, 2015

Today I have some fun Easter cards that feature Lawn Fawn stamps and dies.  I love the cute designs and overall style of Lawn Fawn.  It is just so easy to find something for everyone.

The Lawn Fawn Eggstra Special Easter stamp and die sets are just too much fun.  Both of the cards feature the Eggstra Special Easter stamps and dies.   There are so many elements that can be used to create Easter cards for all ages.  There are also a number of basic dies in the Lawn Fawn Lawn Cuts collection that can be used to add some fun elements to a card.

For the “Happy Easter” card, I began with an A2 card base in green, cut 4.25″ x 5.5″.  I cut a blue layer and another green layer using the largest of the Small Stitched Rectangles.  I further cut the green rectangle using the Stitched Hillside Borders to create the two layers of grass shown.  These are so very easy to cut, and what a cute result!  I stamped the “happy Easter” sentiment at the bottom of the front layer of grass.  It was heat embossed using Ranger’s Super Fine Clear embossing powder for emphasis.  The sun and the clouds were cut using the Hello Sunshine die set.  I used the Hello Sunshine stamps and die to make the cute Easter chicks.  I’m pretty sure they are meant to be little birds, but I think that they also make cute chicks.  I added a little orange Copic marker to them to enhance their little beaks.  I stamped the bunny on white and on purple cardstock, and then cut both.  I fussy cut the bow from the purple bunny and glued it in place on the white bunny.  I added a few pink highlights (nose and ears) using a pink Copic marker.  Finally, I made the tulips by stamping and cutting them both out of a green patterned paper and the red polka dot paper.  I cut the red polka dot heads and glued them in place on the green tulips.  All I needed to do from that point was just to assemble the card.  I did that using my Angel Craft 1/4″ adhesive.

For the “Earresistable” card, the process was similar.  I cut the teal A2 card base 4.25″ x 5.5″.  I cut the plaid layer 4″ x 5.25″.  I used the Say Cheese die set to cut the cute photo frame in white, and a blue center as a background for the picture.  I cut a teal layer just slightly larger than the photo frame (1/4″ added to each side’s dimension, so that only 1/8″ of the teal will show when assembled).  The bunny was stamped on brown and on teal.  I fussy cut the bow from the teal bunny, and glued it in place on the brown version.  I used my pink Glaze pen to add the nose and ear accents.  I cut a teal banner using a die from the large Stitched Journaling Card die set.  The sentiment “You’re Earresistable” is designed as a long sentiment, stretching almost the entire width of an A2 card.  To make it easier to use on the banner, I simply cut the stamp between the words.  I used my Ranger Super Fine embossing powder to make this sentiment pop also.  I assembled this card using my Angel Craft 1/4″ adhesive.  I added the cute teal/white polka dot to embellish.

For additional information on how I made the cards, please see the short video.

These cards were so fun and so easy to make.  I love the look that you can achieve by doing the simple fussy cutting and paper piecing techniques.  Be sure to check out the many cute Lawn Fawn stamp and die sets that are available on the Cut@Home site.  I’m sure that you’ll find a “must have” for your collection.

Floating frame using Angel Craft Premium Vinyl!

March 25th, 2015

Today I’m using the wonderful Premium Angel Craft Premium Vinyl. I love to play with vinyl. There’s so many great home decor projects that you can get so creative with, and wonderful gifts that you can make.

2015-03-24 12.46.542015-03-24 12.46.50 2015-03-24 12.46.46

Cut At Home has some beautiful vinyl to choose from that come in several sizes and colors to choose from.

I love to re-purpose items when I get the chance. Today I’m using a very old, and not so pretty frame. This was just a plain used frame I had in my stash.

Snapshot 3 (3-23-2015 11-34 PM) Snapshot 2 (3-23-2015 11-34 PM)
I first removed the backing and discarded it, as I no longer need it. I gave the frame two coats of white Gesso paint, using my heat gun to help speed up the drying time.

I then took the frame outside to spray paint it. I used Krylon Blue Ocean Breeze.

Snapshot 1 (3-24-2015 2-53 PM)

While that was drying, I cut out a beautiful quote using the White Matte Angel Craft Vinyl from my Silhouette Cameo (see design # below).
If you have never cut out vinyl on your Cameo, it’s very easy! You simply place it on your mat like you would a piece of cardstock. Under the cut settings, change your cut type to “vinyl”. Then cut it out the same way, following the blade depth the Silhouette recommends. This will give it a “kiss” cut, which will not cut  all the way through the backing. You then want to “weed” your vinyl. Simply use a piercing tool, or something else with a point, you need to take out all of the negative pieces of vinyl that you do not need. The center of any of the letters, leaving only the design you desire.
Then using the Angel Craft Transfer Paper…which is a must have for me, I place that over my vinyl that is left on the backing sheet. After burnishing that down, you want to pull back the transfer paper, and only the vinyl will stick to it. If any vinyl does not stick, you want to place the transfer paper back down & burnish it again. Then you are able to use this to adhere to your glass piece in your frame. I used my grid mat and a printed version of the quote as a guide to help to get it straight on the frame.

Snapshot 1 (3-24-2015 3-00 PM)
Replacing the glass in my frame, I choose to remove the metal closure pieces, being that they can be seen from the front. To remove them, I used a pair of needle nosed pliers. To adhere my glass down to the frame, I used E6000 very lightly trying to avoid any gushing out on the sides. This will hold it securely in place. I then added a beautiful cluster of flower’s, and pearl trim to finish this frame off. This project looks beautiful hanging from a wall, or on a plate stand. You can see just a small shadow peeking through the frame from the lettering, which looks great!

Introducing NEW Angel Craft Podge

March 24th, 2015

P1140933Oh I just love when new products become available,
especially when I’ve been hinting and hinting about them for what seems forever!

I’ve been using the Angel Craft Podge on several of my past projects keeping an eye out to make sure items stayed sealed and there was no lifting.  This is such a great product I can’t endorse it enough.  There is very little odor, it’s clear with no yellow tint, can be used as either a sealer, top coat or glue, I’ve tired it in all of these capacities and been extremely happy with the results.  And as an added bonus the six ounce bottle comes with a brush attached to the lid, fantastic idea!

Angel Podge-031

I’ve had so much fun playing, I took plain Composition books, like you’d use in school and altered the outside and inside fronts and back.  The top one above that says Celebrate is my own and used daily.  I’ve used Graphic 45‘s A Place in Time, Heartfelt Creations Sun Kissed and Arianna Blooms and Tim Holtz Tissue Paper and Wallflower paper collections on my Journals.

Angel Podge-015

You can see here how well the Angel Craft Podge takes the Tim Holtz Distress Inks (I used Black Soot here) and also modeling paste over his Tissue paper.  I’ve used this Podge with cardstock, foil and tissue paper with excellent results.

Angel Podge-019

You can also see how well the Podge holds letters and flourishes, here I used words from the collection and a flourish from Marianne Designs Vintage Swirls.  I hope you’ll join me on the video to get some close ups and other samples of how I’ve used it in my crafting.  Links to all products from the store is below.

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!

Techniques using Angel Craft Podge

March 23rd, 2015

Happy Monday, today I am very excited to talk about a new product available here at Cut@Home, it is Angel Craft Podge! This product is so versatile and can be used for many different applications. I will share a couple with you today.

I decided to make a tag using an image transfer technique you can do with this podge. I was so happy with the results, it turned out beautifully!

IMG_0569

The first thing I did to create this tag was making a couple of glaze colors to add to card stock. I used Acrylic paint and the podge mixed together. When you mix the two, if the glaze color is too light add more paint and if it’s too dark add more podge. I let the glaze dry then I cut flowers using Sizzix Simple Flowers dies. I added some Tim Holtz Distress Stain in Pewter to give the flowers more of a vintage look.

IMG_0566

Next I was ready to make the tag. I started with a tag I cut on my Cricut, I was going to make it a double tag so that it would open, but I changed my mind and just used the thickness to make the tag sturdy for the podge. Print a black and white photo on regular copy paper using your ink jet printer. Let it dry completely, at least 5 minutes. Next apply the podge heavily and evenly over you photo. Place the photo onto the material you want it transferred to, in this case I used my tag, but you can use other media. I am anxious to try it on Canvas, I will share my results with all of you!

Use a brayer to smooth out the picture and make sure that it adheres completely to your media. This next step is very important, let it dry completely, on the paper it doesn’t take long, but I have researched transferring onto canvas and they recommend letting it dry for 24 hours. Once it is dry lightly misted the top of the paper just to dampen it, then gently rub the paper off of the top. This step take some patience so be gentle. The final results are worth it!

IMG_0567

To finish the tag I used three Tim Holtz Distress Inks, Chipped Sapphire, Spun Sugar and Broken China. I added the chipped sapphire to the edges and some highlights on the tag, I did the same with the spun sugar, but I also added some to her cheeks. I added the broken china to her eyes. I added some of the pewter to the edges of the tag as well. I adhered the flowers with glue dots and pop dots to give some added dimension, the letter I had, it was a wooden accent so I painted it with the pewter distress stain and added a piece of the pink glazed paper behind it, finally I added some gems and ribbon for the finishing touches.

Here is a list of the products that I used that are available on the Cut@Home website:

ACP6SG – Angel Craft Podge Semi-Gloss
659895 – Sizzix Simple Flowers Dies

I hope you enjoyed my post today, it was so much fun creating this tag! I am really looking forward to more fun projects with this product, I am loving it!

Till next week, Thanks and Happy Scrappin,
