Hello friends and TGIF! I hope you have fun things planned for the weekend ahead! I have been working hard every evening this week preparing for my "Make It Merry" holiday cardmaking extravanganza Saturday night! I still have a LOT to do before tomorrow's big event. I've got desserts to bake and a holiday music playlist to create. . . This part I'm kinda dreading because I have a hard time playing Christmas music before December 1st!
Can't make this class? See other upcoming classes and events I have planned HERE.
Be sure to follow along on my Instagram stories as I share some behind-the-scenes snaps from all the fun!
Today I am sharing a card made using the Hog Heaven stamp set by My Favorite Things. It even includes an interactive flip-fold fence that I created myself. Enjoy today's card and have a wonderfully creative weekend!
Here is a close-up of the flip-fold fence. You can see the pig's head peeking out from the front and his cute little pig tail from behind!
The base of this A2 sized card is made from Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. Using the Scalloped Stitched Nesting Rectangles from Gina Marie Designs I cut the background out of Pear Pizazz cardstock. I cut a 5" x 3 3/4" sheet of Lawn Fawn's Watercolor Wishes paper as the background (I did not watercolor or create the blue sky). Using the Lawn Fawn Grassy Hillside Border I cut the grass from Pear Pizzazz ink. I stamped all images in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock and colored them in with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Ink markers. I stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I adhered all images to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals for added height. Lastly, I placed a coat of Clear Wink of Stella on each pig for a little extra sparkle.
Thanks for visiting!

Hello friends! Okay, so who noticed that I did not post yesterday (for Halloween)!? I know, I know, I've said many times over that Halloween is my favorite holiday to create cards for. Epic fail! The truth is, I had exhausted all of my Halloween cards in the weeks leading up to the 31st that I didn't leave anything left to post yesterday! Oh well, surely you'll forgive me (fingers crossed) when you see today's Reveal Wheel card!
I have been thoroughly enjoying many of the interactive Lawn Fawn dies I have purchased over the last few months to include this Reveal Wheel die. At first it was a little intimidating putting this spinning wheel together, but I promise after you have made two or three of them, it does get easier!
The base of this A2 sized card is made from Pool Party cardstock. The first 5 1/4" x 4" sheet of plaid paper is from the Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Chill Collection. I cut the components of the Reveal Wheel using Crushed Curry cardstock and Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. (See the video below on how to create the Reveal Wheel itself.) On the Crushed Curry cardstock, I stamped the plaid background in Crushed Curry ink (similar stamp here). I stamped the two cups in Memento Tuxedo black ink, die cut them and colored them with Spectrum Noir alcohol ink markers. I adhered the two cups to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals for added height. The brown plaid paper is from the Lawn Fawn Knit Picky Collection. I stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo black ink on Neenah Solar White smooth cardstock and notched both ends before adhering it to the card. I stamped the two coffee foam pieces in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on white cardstock, colored them with alcohol ink markers and used the Lawn Fawn Textured White Embossign Powder that puffs up to look like 3-dimensional foam (or snow).
As you spin the wheel around you can read the four different sentiments it reveals:
Lawn Fawn has created two stamp sets that work with the Reveal Wheel die:

Would you hate me if I told you I was 100% finished with this year's Christmas shopping? Sorry, that is an entirely true statement! I AM done. All of it! Yup, even those little stocking stuffers too! I just find the holiday season to be so chaotic and stressful that I have made it more relaxing and enjoyable for myself by shopping early. Typically I am done shopping by Thanksgiving and we wrap on Black Friday, but, this year I am done before Halloween! (Insert happy dance here.)
I'm also sorta afraid to tell you that, yes, even my Christmas cards are done too! I wimped out this year and I designed them through Shutterfly using a family photo taken last Christmas during a huge snowstorm in Maine. Because I ordered them way back in January I was also able to take advantage of Shutterfly's post-Christmas 75% off sale!
I know, I know. You're highly disappointed that Super Stamp Girl isn't so super stamp-y after all! ; )
But, this doesn't mean that I won't still be making and sharing Christmas cards to inspire YOU, like today's interactive card featuring Santa's Elves by My Favorite Things and a Magic Color Sliding window by Lawn Fawn!
Here is a photo of the card with the magic color sliding tab pushed all the way in showing a black and white elf image:
*See the video below for instruction on how to create the Magic Color Sliding window portion.
The base of this A2 sized card is made from Real Red cardstock. The first matted layer is a 5 1/4" x 4" sheet of plaid patterned paper. All images were stamped in Tuxedo Memento Black ink and colored with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. A Uniball White Gel pen was used to highlight some of the coloring. All images were adhered to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals for added height. Lawn Fawn Prismaglitter was added to the white of the stocking and the star on the tree for some sparkle.
Here is a photo of the card with the magic color slider pulled out the way out to reveal the colored elf image:
Because I have not dived into video tutorials yet, here is the Magic Color Slider intro video from Lawn Fawn:
I hope you have enjoyed today's card! Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!
Other cards featuring Lawn Fawn:
Hi crafty people and TGIF! I am SO excited to share today's interactive Halloween themed card with you! It has a dual pull-out feature created by using the NEW Lawn Fawn Double Slider Surprise dies! My friend Margaret (remember Margaret, the one with the AH-mazing craft room) helped me put the base of this card together. Thank you, Margaret! You are a talented card maker and a great teacher (minus the two times she yelled at us)! ; )
Also, if you love all things Lawn Fawn, be sure to follow me on Instagram/Instastories tonight as I will be joining my friends for two classes at The Inspiration Station in Stafford Springs, Connecticut with Lawn Fawn's own Jenn Shurkus!
Prior to creating the slider component itself, I had already pre-colored and die cut all of these adorable trick-or-treaters from the Lawn Fawn Costume Party stamp set. This helped save a lot of time. All images were stamped in Tuxedo Memento Black ink and colored using Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and a Sakura White Gel Pen. The base of the actual A2 sized card itself is made from Basic Black cardstock. I used random scraps of orange chevron and orange star patterned paper to accent the slider portion of the card.
I have not dived into the world of card making videos yet, but you can watch how to assemble the Double Slider Surprise dies with this intro video made by Lawn Fawn in order to better understand how this card "works:"
I hope you have enjoyed this spooky cute interactive Halloween card! This card was a lot of work, and a ton of coloring, but it was worth the HOURS spent on it because I L-O-V-E how it turned out! And NO, for my local followers, sorry we most likely won't be re-creating this card at a stamp camp anytime soon!
Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend!
