Home Sweet Home!

Hi Crafties!

Lawn Fawn is having an awesome challenge going on.

Make a project inspired by a movie, song or book!

I instantly had the idea of making a card based on the movie ‘UP’.

I love this movie. It’s all about following your dreams. It is correctly defined by this awesome proverb –

Where your heart lies, there lies your treasure.

As always, I made an interactive card! I just can’t get enough of them. (I hope I never do.)

You can see the card in action below :

For this card, I started with a bigger panel.

I used the trio balloon stamp from ‘Bicycle built for you’ stamp set by Lawn Fawn, masking it several times to get this huge bunch of balloons.

For the house, I used the Happy Village stamp set. The clouds & birds are from the same stamp set.

I colored all images with my trusted inktense pencils.

The interactivity is based on magnets. One behind the bunch of balloons and other behind the panel.

I hid the sentiment too to create a spark of surprise.

I used the border-die from Lawn Fawn on the frame of the panel.

The background I made with distress oxides.

I hope this card gives you joy as much as I had making it.

Do let me know your thoughts in the comments.

Thank you for stopping by…

Have a great day ahead!

Lawn Fawn Challenge #48 :

Inspired by book, movie, or song

Magnet in an Easel card!

Hello Crafties!
Today I am on the Itsy Bitsy blog with my very first blog post as a design team member.
This month’s Challenge theme is Anything goes with Little Birdie Instant Image Transfer Gel.
For this, I have a step by step photo tutorial for making a magnet easel card for you today.

I am obsessed about making cards and incorporating new products into my cardmaking!

So if you love cardmaking like me [ high – five 😀 ] or you are into other crafts [ high – five to you too 😀 ], I am sure either way, you would have fun making this card!

Enough of my banter, lets begin:
Step 1:

I took a wooden slice by Little Birdie measuring around 2 inches. These come in a pack of six. So you can make plenty of magnets this way.

I reversed the image of the laser printout before printing. As I wanted my peacock to face in a particular direction.
Step 2 :
Then with a wide brush, I spread Little Birdie Instant Image Transfer Gel over my wooden slice.
* Be generous while applying the gel. The first time I tried, I used very little and ended up ruining my project. So please keep that in mind *

I then placed the gel side of the slice on top of my image. I did this so that I could see how the image was being placed.
Step 3 :
After letting it dry for around 15 min I took some water and began dabbing the paper with my finger, slowly, all over.
* Do not rush this step *
Taking out the first white layer of the paper & then little by little the image starts to peek out. It is so much fun when you see the image transferred completely onto the slice.
Step 4 :
The image might appear a bit hazy but fret not. Just apply a layer of Little Birdie Decor Varnish and voila- the image is immediately crisp! You could use Little Birdie Deco Magic too.

Step 5 :
I then applied a small strip of magnet on the back side of the slice and my magnet is complete.

Inspirational Magnet

Hello Crafties!
Today I have something other than a card for you. A magnet!

I love making them. Specially the ones with inspirational quotes on them.

For today’s project, I diecut a hexagon out of black chipboard.Loving the hexagon die by Gina Marie.
I then, heat embossed the sentiment stamp with WOW Metallic gold rich embossing powder.
The stamp is by Jane’s doodles.
The cactus stamps are by Itsy bitsy’s – Little birdie.
I watercolored and then fussy cut them and adhered at the bottom of the hexagon.
