June 30, 2017 in Lawn Fawn - No Comments

Aloha! My card today features the new Lawn Fawn Aloha stamps and lawn cuts with a bit of stenciling. This is a really cute set and the sunglasses are pretty awesome!

I started by cutting a plain white cardstock piece to 4″ x 5 1/4″. I like to use 110lb Georgia Pacific when it just involves inks and sponge daubers vs. Copics. Saves on the good expensive stuff.

Next, I stenciled a couple of pineapples using Memento inks and sponge daubers and the Inkadinkado Pineapple stencil. Colors used are Cantaloupe, Peanut Brittle, Pear Tart and Bamboo Leaves. Towards the bottom of the cardstock I stenciled just a bit of the Neat and Tangled Rice Paddies stencil with Tim Holtz Peacock Feathers Distress Ink. I’m currently in love with this stencil. It adds so much even just using it for the sentiment base as I’ve done here.

I matted this white cardstock on a patterned paper cut to 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ and adhered it to my kraft card base.

I wanted a bit more blues and greens on the card so I die-cut a couple of patterned papers with a My Favorite Things Stitched Basic Edges die-namics and overlapped/adhered them to each side.

I colored the Lawn Fawn Aloha lawn cuts die with Copics to get a nice blend from light to dark with R30, R21 and R22. It would’ve been nearly impossible for me to get a good blend with the Copics had I die-cut it from white cardstock and tried to color this scripty font, so here’s a little tip on how to accomplish this:

I cut a rectangular piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock slightly larger than this Aloha die and then colored/blended this piece with the Copics. You’ve got to work pretty fast in such a large area, but even if it’s not perfectly blended, it won’t show on the finished die-cut.

I then placed the Aloha die cutting-edge down on the cardstock, taped it in place and die-cut.

I die-cut the Aloha twice more from coral cardstock and layered all of them together for a little dimension. I spread Tim Holtz clear texture paste over the top to give it a little gloss.

I stamped the pineapple with a happy face, colored it with Copics and used the coordinating die from this set.

Then, I die-cut the sunglasses from black cardstock and adhered them with dimensional adhesive.


Hope you enjoyed!

Thanks for stopping by!
