The Greeting Farm Stamp Feature: FEELS 2

 
Happy Friday everyone! The Greeting Farm had another amazing release on the 15th! I'm loving every set this month. Don't forget, one lucky person will win all 4 sets by participating in our Blog Hop. Hurry though, the hop ends on the 18th!!

Well the weekend is finally here, and we've got all the Feels. This next set called FEELS 2 features adorable girls engaged in various "life" activities, and is perfect for so many different projects!
 
 
 
I decided to make two quick and easy cards featuring several of the girls. I love Echo Park 12x12 Paper Packs because most of them come with quote blocks, along with coordinating stickers. I used two quote blocks from the I Love Sunshine 12x12 set to create these easy peasy cards.


These girls are so CUTE and FABULOUS!! I love their style and expressions....they're so much fun! These stamps are available now for purchase in The Greeting Farm Store. Be sure to stop back by on Monday for my project featuring My Kitchen!

Have a great weekend!

Dies R Us: I Am Deeply In Love With You!

Happy Thursday everyone! Today I'm sharing a totally fun Shadow Box Card using several Lawn Fawn products with some cute paper from Echo Park Let's Be Mermaids that I purchased from the Dies R Us Store.

 ++++++++++++++++++++++++
The links to all of the products used from the Dies R Us Store are shown below. Here is a step-by-step of how I created this card.
 
The first step I did was cut out the two pieces that form the Shadow Box from Lawn Fawn Shadow Box Card Dies. I used some double-sided Bo Bunny paper for this step. I think it's quicker when putting together the shadow box to use double-sided paper because of course both sides are decorated so no need to cut extra paper. :)
 
  Next, I glued the two pieces together on the folded tabs.
 
I grabbed some decorative paper from Echo Park Let's Be Mermaids 6x6 Paper Pad and used the Lawn Fawn Shadow Box Card Ocean Add-On Dies to create the waves for the inside and top of the card.

 
I also cut out some seahorses and seashells from one of the sheets to add more decorative elements.
 
Lastly, I colored up the scuba divers from the Lawn Fawn You Are Sublime Stamp Set and added them to the inside. The sentiment on the banner also came from the You Are Sublime Stamp Set. The whale came from the Ocean Add-On Die Set.

 
I hope this inspires you to try some dimensional cards soon! I can't wait to make more. These Lawn Fawn Stamps and Dies from the Dies R Us Store make it easy peasy!!

Dies R Us: Lawn Fawn Screen Time!

Happy Thursday everyone! It's Rosie here today sharing a couple of easy peasy cards using the same stamp and die sets. I LOVE sets that are versatile enough to get many uses out of them, and Lawn Fawn SCREEN TIME totally fits the bill. This set gives you lots of options so you can make a gaming or birthday card for a child or an adult along with lovey dovey cards. I've showed you how to make both!
 
 
++++++++++++++++++++++++
The links to all of the products used from the Dies R Us Store are shown below. Here is a step-by-step of how I created this card.
The first step was to stamp and color the images. Then, I used the coordinating die set to cut them all out. The Polaroid and cell phone die-cuts are from the Lawn Fawn Selfie Frames Die Set.


I wanted it to look like the characters were actually holding the controllers and the cell phones so I used a craft knife to cut around their hands. For the gamers, I cut around both hands. For the couple, I just cut around one hand to hold the cell phone so the other hand was free to text.


That's pretty much it! I added red paper to fill in the middle of the Polaroid and black paper for the cell phone. The sentiments are from the Screen Time Set. The "oh snap" die is part of the the Lawn Fawn Selfie Frames Die.

Dies R Us: Thinking of You with Gorjuss Little Fishes Die!

Happy Sunday everyone! It's Rosie here today sharing this card using one of the Gorjuss Girl dies. I LOVE these characters so when they came out with dies that allow you to make your own paper dolls I had to buy every single one! I paired her with the Sue Wilson Circle Scene-Garden Die to create this fabulous scene card.
 
 
++++++++++++++++++++++++
 
The links to all of the products used from the Dies R Us Store are shown below. Here is a step-by-step of how I created this card.
The first step was to cut out all the pieces for the paper doll. I decided to cut some of the pieces from white and color them in to get more depth to my image. I also colored parts of the cut-outs in black so that when I layered the pieces there wouldn't be a white border.


The next step was to start gluing the pieces together. These dies do not have step-by-step instructions so I hope this tutorial gives you a better idea of how to layer all the pieces. I glued the large hair piece behind the main image since that is the back part of her hair. Then the blue bottom portion of her dress goes on top of the main doll form. On the 2nd body form I glued on the dress. On the head, I glued the headband to the hair piece first and then glued her hair to the face cut-out.
 
 
Next, I glued the dress/leggings cut-out to the top of the main body.
 
 
Finally her face and bow were glued on.


To create the card, I used the Sue Wilson Circle Scene-Garden Die Set. The great thing about the fence, grass, and flower dies is that you can form a long continuous piece because the ends are not scored to cut the paper! Then you can come back in and line up the circle die to cut it where you want. Or if you want to use it to create a scene on a rectangle or square card, you have that option because you can keep layering the die to make a long continuous piece....AWESOME!
 
 
To create the circle scene, I cut out two circles from watercolor paper and colored in some sky and grass. The 2nd circle was used to cut out the grassy panel at the bottom of the card.


And....here is the completed card! I raised the girl and sentiment on foam squares for added dimension.
