Get Well Soon Card Using Lawn Fawn’s “Get Well Before ‘N Afters” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
With all of the cold weather we’ve been having it seems it’s germ season! Almost everyone I know has the cold/flu (myself included!) so this week I thought I’d share a simple get well soon card to send to your loved ones while they’re a little under the weather!
I stamped the cute sick whale from Lawn Fawn’s “Get Well Before ‘N Afters” stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured it with my alcohol markers. I used a white gel pen to add some highlights as well as dotted details to the whale’s cheeks before fussy cutting my image out.
I cut a panel from white card stock using the second largest die from Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts. I covered the top half of my panel with some post it tape so I could use a stencil on the lower half without marking the top area of my panel. I used the Altenew “Halftone” Stencil and Iced Spruce Distress Oxide ink to blend the bottom half of my panel to create the pattern at the bottom. Once I was happy with the stencilling, I removed the post it tape from the top and used it to cover the pattern the stencil had created. I used Broken China and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink, mixed them with water on my glass craft mat and splattered the top half of my panel with both ink colours.
Once the ink splatter was dry I wrapped two pieces of twine around my panel just above the pattern on the bottom and adhered them to the back. I took a small strip of white card stock and stamped my sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black ink. I popped up my whale just above the top piece of twine and my sentiment on the bottom half of my panel using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape.
I cut another panel from white card stock using the largest of the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts this time and blended the edges using Tumbled Glass and Broken China Distress Oxide ink. I used 1/2″ Scor-Tape to adhere both of my panels together and on to my card base.

Thanks for reading lovelies! I hope you’re all well, and if you do have the sniffles I hope you feel better soon! I’ll see you next week with another card.

Simple Elegant Cards Using Spellbinders Shapeabilities Dies From The “Flower Garden” Collection!

Hey lovelies! ❤ I’m back with a couple more cards using the Spellbinders Shapeabilities dies, this time from the Flower Garden collection by Sharyn Sowell! I tried to keep these cards similar while changing things up just a little, I’ve been on a white and gold kick lately and these dies fit that style perfectly!

“Botanical Butterfly”



I created my A2 card base and cut my panel slightly smaller from white heavyweight card stock. I prepped my panel with my EK Success powder tool so my embossing powder would only stick to where I wanted it to. I took a thin embossing folder I got from a magazine a little while ago and coated the inside with Tsukineko Versamark ink (on the side with no ridges! This is so the embossed part would remain mostly white with only a little bit of gold looking slightly distressed on it!). I placed it towards the bottom of my panel and ran it through my die cutting machine before coating it in Papermania gold embossing powder and setting it with my heat tool. Once the embossing had cooled I took some gold peel offs from Love From Lizi and adhered them at the top and bottom of the gold embossed strip to neaten up the edges and give it an extra little shine. I then covered the embossed strip and the bottom of the panel in post it tape to protect it while I splattered some gold and white gold watercolour paint at the top of the panel. 

Once the splatter was dry I removed the post it tape and prepped the white space at the bottom of the card with my powder tool once again. I stamped my sentiment in Tsukineko Versafine onyx black ink in the bottom right corner of my panel, covered it in Papermania clear embossing powder and set with my heat tool. 

I grabbed some pretty floral pearlescent patterned paper from my stash and used the Botanical  Butterfly etched dies to cut out the body and wings using my die cutting machine (I ran the wings through twice so I could double them up as I knew I wanted some dimension here). Once all my pieces were ready, I took some strong double sided score tape and adhered the bottom wing, body and antenna with it over the left side of the embossed strip. I put some of the same double sided score tape on the top wing (where the wing joins to the butterfly) and used some mini foam squares to pop up the end of the wing to give some dimension. To finish I backed the entire panel in double sided foam tape and adhered to my card base. 

“Botanical Dragonfly”



Once again I went with an A2 card base with a slightly smaller panel from heavyweight white card stock. This time I protected a strip of my panel along the bottom first and splattered again with gold and white gold metallic watercolour paint. I removed the post it tape once the splatter was dry and went with the gold peel offs on their own, choosing two different widths to work with this time. I placed a two of the medium sizes and placed a thinner one in the middle, to give that same sense of separation I have on the first card.

I used the same floral paper as I did with the butterfly, to cut out the botanical dragonfly using my die cutting machine. Again, I ran the wings through twice only this time I turned my paper over so I could create the wings for both sides of the dragonfly. I adhered the two lower wings to my panel using my double sided tape as I wanted them to be flat, for the two top wings I adhered the part that would be behind the dragonfly’s body with score tape and popped up the ends with mini foam squares. I adhered the dragonfly’s body down the middle of my wings, using score tape directly on top of the wings and a mini foam square to support the back of the dragonfly’s head. 

I took some black card stock and prepped it with my heat tool, I stamped my sentiment from Altenew’s Carousel stamp set in Tsukineko Versamark ink, coated it in Altenew pure white embossing powder and set it with my heat tool. I cut the sentiment in to a thin strip using my paper trimmer and adhered it across my dragonfly using the double sided score tape. I then backed the entire panel in double sided foam tape and adhered to my card base to finish up!


Thanks for reading lovelies! I had a lot of fun playing with these dies, I want to say a special thanks to Spellbinders for reaching out to me once again and giving me this wonderful opportunity! The dies themselves are absolutely beautiful and great for making beautiful cards year round, no matter the occasion! The detail in these dies specifically had me in awe! Which of the two dies is your favourite?

Lawn Fawn Sending Hugs/Get Well Soon Card!

Hey lovelies! ❤

Is it just me or is everyone getting catching a bug lately?! Having a few get well soon cards on hand is a must, you never know when you’ll need one! I personally love this Lawn Fawn – On the Mend set for times like this, the adorable little images and the supportive sentiments are some I always reach for when making a get well soon card!

~Tools and products used will be listed at the end of this blog post!~


I stamped some of the images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, as I planned to us my Spectrum Noir markers for this project. I coloured the little bowl and spoon, and cut them out by hand without leaving a white border as I knew I wanted to do some paper piecing for the tissue box to get that spotted pattern! I also cut a small slit in the lining of the bowl using my craft knife, to make room for the spoon to slot in. For the tissue box I stamped the image twice, once on white card stock and once on the yellow polka dot patterned paper. I fussy cut them both out being sure to remove the actual tissue from the yellow polka dot image, so the white tissue from behind could pop through once I adhered the pieces together!

I moved on to creating the panel and die cutting the circle window as well as the inlayed frame, before moving on to the ink blended background. I decided to use my distress inks for this, as I knew I wanted that vibrant distressed look when you spray the paper with water after blending. I chose the warm tones because usually when I’m sick I want to stay wrapped up and toasty, preferably with a cup of tea (and if I’m lucky, a digestive biscuit!).

After my in blended panel was ready and distressed, it was time to start assembling the card. I put a black matte paper on my card base, as well as some fun rainbow paper to brighten anybody’s mood!I adhered my white panel with the window and the inlayed frame directly on to the rainbow paper, as I didn’t want this card to have too much bulk. After playing around with placement for my images I adhered them using my regular tape runner. I heat embossed my sentiment using Altenew Pure White embossing powder on a thin black strip of black card stock and mounted that on some foam tape, just below the images within the frame!


Thank you for reading lovelies! Overall this was a pretty quick and simple card to make, and I love the finished result! I’m sure whoever the recipient is will get a smile out of it when they receive it!<3
