A-moose-ing Card with Lawn Fawn + ETC Papers

Lawn Fawn has the MOST adorable products. Every new stamp set we see released, we are dying to use and pair with our wood paper. They have so many cute little animals and critters.

This week our wish came true! Isn’t this Dad + Me stamp set from Lawn Fawn the cutest? With the darling woodland critters, perfect little scenes and excellent puns (we are suckers for a good pun), this set is absolutely perfect.

Even better … the Dad + Me stamp set has companion dies; Dad + Me Lawn Cuts, making cutting out all of the little stamped images a total breeze.

We created this fun general occasion card using this set. We stamped a few of the greetings from  the set in Versamark ink on black card stock and then embossed the stamping with white embossing powder to get that black label maker look. We chopped up the words and arranged them differently to come up with a new ‘a-moose-ing’ greeting.
Look at that gorgeous Birch wood grain!!! Doesn’t it look so great with the little mountains and moose? Our wood paper is thin and super lightweight so you can mail this card with a regular postage stamp.
Supplies for A-Moose-ing card: Birch Wood Paper, Cherry Wood Tape, Dad + Me stamp set, Dad + Me Lawn Cuts, Let’s Polka in the Dark Petite Paper Pack, white card stock, black card stock, black ink, green ink, Copic Markers, Versamark ink, white embossing powder, heat tool, baker’s twine, vellum paper, foam adhesive and adhesive.

Coloring on Wood Paper with Chameleon Pens

This week has flown by. We are back and so excited to share more Chameleon Pen and Wood paper projects. We were floored by the amazing projects and talent that was shared last week. We have quickly become Chameleon addicts.

ARC Chameleon Starfish 6

We have two pieces of home decor to share. First is this Starfish print on Birch Wood paper. This is a larger scale coloring project and is super simple to create with only RD4 and YL2 Chameleon Pens, one sheet of Birch Wood paper, starfish art file (from Vintage Fangirl) and an inkjet printer.

ARC Chameleon Starfish 5

1. Print this starfish file onto an 8.5″ x 11″ sheet of Birch Wood paper.

2. Color away using RD4 and YL2 Chameleon Pens.

ARC Chameleon Starfish 3

That’s it! So simple and so stunning. The red and yellow tones in these pens blend perfectly for a nice orange color.

Chameleon pens are alcohol based so they blend nicely and work with alcohol blending solutions. This next project is a little playful and fun. Follow these simple steps below:

ARC Chameleon 3 Birch

1. Download this free coloring page from Amy Tangerine (So Many Reasons).

2. Print the So Many Reasons file onto an 8.5″ x 11″ sheet of Birch Wood paper.

3. Color each letter a different color using the Primary Color tones Chameleon Pens.

4. Randomly add droplets of Ranger / Tim Holtz Adirondack Alcohol blending solution and watch the magic happen.

ARC Chameleon 2 Birch

We think this technique is super fun and gives us SO MANY REASONS TO BE HAPPY!

Perfect Paper Crafting and ARC Crafts!

We told you July was full of fun product play and shares. Today we like to introduce you to our friends over at Perfect Paper Crafting and specifically their Perfect Layers product! True to their name, we had a perfect experience using their products. We made this colorful HELLO card using Perfect Layers and Cherry Wood paper.

The Perfect Layers tools helped us achieve straight cut lines and absolutely perfectly spaced layers on our projects. It was so easy and took the measuring and thinking out of the mix. Perfect Paper Crafting’s paper cutting mat is the perfect size for small jobs. We found it an excellent size for card making. We used both of these products to create our HELLO card. It’s also extra cool that these products are small making them great choices for crafting on the go.

Instructions for HELLO Card:

1. Watch this training video on the Perfect Layers tool.

2. Cut card base from light blue card stock to 4.25″ x 11″. Score and fold in half.

3. Work from the Cherry Wood paper backwards to achieve the layers. Cut Cherry Wood paper to 3.25 x 5.5″. Then start layering.

4. Using the Cherry wood paper as your starting point use the Perfect Layers Mini to layer, measure and cut the the red card stock. Repeat this process with the yellow and dark blue card stock. We used the 1/8″, 1/4″ and 3/16″ measurements to achieve our layers.
