Xyron & Lawn Fawn

Hello! I'm extremely excited about his week's collaboration between
XYRON & LAWN FAWN
We swapped out products to show how well the two companies' work together,
especially when you're dealing with small pieces such as die-cuts!

 Look how cute!
I adore the way this adorable card turned out.  
I've used the Lawn Fawn "Year Five" Die and Stamp Set
which hosts an otter and birthday sentiment.


 is filled to the brim with the cutest stripes, dots and mini hearts in beautiful colors.

I first stamped the image onto Neenah white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Okay, so I kinda cheated a little when coloring in the otter!  I used the chisel
tip of the GG1 Spectrim Noir alcohol marker to color in and shade.  I like how 
the long strokes of the marker give a seamless color.

I hand-cut the otter out and then used the matching die to cut a white background for it.
All pieces, and the strip of wavy water that I cut out, were ran through the Xyron 5"
Creative Station Lite.  The 3" Permanent Adhesive Refill was placed into the machine.

 I also used the 3" Permanent Adhesive to build my card bases and adhere them together.

Finally, I cut an A2 cardbase and adhered the finished piece to the front with the 
The otter is holding a present, which is also a part of the stamp and die set.  
The sentiment was then stamped in the same Memento Tuxedo Black ink along
the bottom "grassy" area of the card :)


 You will find more fun ideas on the Xyron Facebook Page!

Beautiful Birthday Shaker Card

Hello and welcome to my contribution to the  SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES and HERO ARTS BLOG HOP

For my project, I have chosen to make this cute shaker birthday card!


Before we get started on the detail, here is a list of supplies that I've used: From Scrapbook Adhesives: Keepsakes Envelope Mix (I used 4" X 3.5") Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4 in, Dual Tip Glue Pen, Crafty Foam Tape Black and the E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispenser with E-Z Runner Grand Permanent Dots Refill.  From Hero Arts: Dress Up Stamp and Cut and Kelly's Flags Stamp & Cut
To begin, I added a few star sequins directly to the sticky part of the Keepsake Envelope.
Next I sprinkled some round sequins inside of the pocket.
I used the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4" to close up the pocket.
I cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as the pocket and mounted it to the sticky back of the pocket.  
After die-cutting the dress bottom from patterned paper, it was pleated along the score lines and then…
