Many Congrats Card featuring Lawn Fawn Stamps + Dies

Cathy ZielskeCards10 Comments

Today I’m sharing a simple card using a small stamp set (and coordinating dies!) from Lawn Fawn. If you’re looking for a fun, entry-level card project, this one would be a great way to dabble in some fun but do-able techniques with a stamp set that has a great price point.

The stamp set I’m using today is the How You Bean Stars Add On, which is a standalone set, but works with the charming How You Bean stamp set, that features a small mason jar stamp. The stars fit into that jar stamp, but I only have the stars, so I decided to make a simple congrats card with high school graduation just around the corner.

In today’s video, I’ll show you how to use a single Zig Clean Color Real Brush marker to create some simple gradation in color, as well as how to create a matching envelope for any square card.

I love simple cards with wide margins of framing space! I hope you enjoyed the video.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I’ll see you again soon with another card or scrapbooking video.

    You got me! I’ve admired your card creations, but have never been tempted enough to make the leap because digital scrapbooking is my thing. Something about this card makes me want to place orders for supplies and get started. Your video is so well done, I think even a digital scrapper like me can make a great card. Thanks, Cathy!

      Really? Ha! Got ya! Okay, I say that with love because you know, I experienced an epiphany the first time I used a stitched wafer die… and I literally fell in love with the whole thing. It has brought me so much creative joy. Which sounds weird to say, but it’s true. I hope you have SO much fun! Don’t give up and don’t worry if things don’t always turn out the way you hope! It gets easier. And it’s fun while you’re learning!

    It looks great. I love yellow. and the simple has such impact.

    the sleeve on the misti thing is a problem in warmer weather I see.

    I get that people like the shiny, and the sequins, I really, really don’t. but I think your design is strong enough that it would still stand without it.

    weird question (cos, you know by now, I’m weird) do the zig pens smell? I assume copic markers smell like sharpies? does the water colour pen have that sort of strong smell?

      The Zigs have no smell. I think the Copics just smell a bit like alcohol, which makes sense. And yes, no sleeve! lol!

      I also like the sequins for a bit of visual repetition, as well! Not just shine. 🙂

    ta! sensory sensitivities are a right pain.

    ah, but you solved that ‘problem’ on the sea life cards! bubbles before bling IMO. (I’m not pretending it’s a popular viewpoint, I’m weird)
