Smash Birthday!

Hi crafters!! It's Valerie here today with a birthday card set featuring lots of Lawn Fawn (LF)




I started out by stamping the adorable pinata image from the LF Year Seven stamp set 5 times and coloring them in different color themes with my Copic markers. Then I die cut them with the coordinating Year Seven cut set.



All of the "happy" words are stamped using a stamp from the LF Happy Happy Happy stamp set and different LF inks (all shown in the supply list below)., and die cut with the coordinating die from the LF Happy Happy Happy cut set. The "birthday!" word comes from the same stamp set. The papers for the frames is from the LF 6x6 Watercolor Wishes paper pack.




There was a lot of gluing in this project, and my trusty, always-go-to Tombow Mono Multi Liquid glue worked perfectly as always!



Thank you for visiting, have a great day, and Happy Crafting!

Rockin My Mermaid...With My Favorite Things

Hey hey everyone.  It's Dana with you today.  I'm super excited to be on the team here at Drive By Crafts.  Today I'm sharing my first project using one of my favorite images from My Favorite Things.  This adorable mermaid is from the Mermazing stamp Set.  Living in Florida of course I had to use a mermaid on a card. :-)  

For my card I used distress ink cubes to create a mystical backdrop for my mermaid to sit on.  I first smooched the ink on my craft mat and mixed with water.  I ran my paper through the ink and spritz it with alcohol to get this really cool background. Next I stamped out my mermaid and colored her with Copic markers. Once she was colored I fussy cut her out.


Next I cut out some waves and clouds out of vellum.  I wrapped the ends of the waves around my cardstock and taped them to the back of the card panel.  I stamped part of a sentiment on each cloud with versamark and then heat embossed it with ultra fine white embossing powder.  I adhered each cloud to the card front with vellum adhesive. 

Lastly I tucked my mermaid between the waves and adhered her with my tape adhesive. Just for a little bit of added fun, I used some nuvo drops on the card front and on the clouds.  I decided to have this panel layered onto a aqua piece of cardstock and this was placed on a white card base.

Well that's my card for today. Have a great day everyone and we will see you back here soon.  Don't forget to swing by the store and pick up this mer-mazing stamp set and all your other crafting supplies.  Shipping is FREE with your $39 order (US orders ONLY)!

Praying For...

Happy Day Everyone...
Annette Allen here with you today.


Today I am getting crafty with Altenew: Bamboo Rose stamp set. We have this set in stock and ready to ship. These stamps stamp beautiful and bonus they are fun to color. So many ways to use this set and we all need a stamp set of encouragement.  The script on the sentiments is perfect.

  

I am a big fan of Spectrum Noir white card-stock. I think it takes the ink perfectly and it is great to color on with your alcohol based markers. I have tried many brands and this works the best for me. Have you tried it? Well we have it in stock and ready to ship.


I colored these sweet roses with Copic Sketch markers. When you have pretty stamps like these you don't need much more on a card. How would you use this set? We would love to see. Please tag us on Instagram and FB. (links on the side panel) 

Thanks for stopping by and being a Drive By Crafts Customer.

Happy Drive By Crafts Shopping.

Ahoy, Matey!

TGIF, Crafters! I hope you've had a good week! This is Valerie here today with some pirate birthday fun using lots of Lawn Fawn!

The main feature here is Lawn Fawn's new Ahoy, Matey stamp set; I had so much fun creating an adorable scene with pirates, a chest full of gold and diamonds, and a cute pirate's ship and palm trees in the background! Then, I decided to enhance the birthday theme with a balloon and cake from the Elphie Selphie stamp set and coordinating cut set.



The sand and background sky are created with applying distress ink onto Ranger Watercolor paper using Round Mini Ink Blending Tools

All of the images are stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Copic markers.




I finished the card by nesting the scene into a coordinating opening cut into a piece of patterned paper that comes from the Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Rainbow Petite Paper Pack.



Thank you for the blog visit! Have a great day, and a wonderful weekend!
