Let’s Get Creepy with Perfect Paper Crafting

Attachment-1 (1)

Today I have this adorable card for you using the Perfect Paper CraftingPerfect Tears” tool and some of Lawn Fawn’s newest products.

I started out with some Strathmore Watercolor Paper. I stamped my images from the Monster Mash Stamp Set and the Spooktacular Stamp Set, as well as my adorable sentiment using the Violet’s ABCs Stamp Set. Then I die cut the tree from the Sweater Weather Lawn Cuts and used the Perfect Tears “Course Deckle Edge” to create a gooey border. I did use a small pair of precision scissors to clean up the edges from the tear just a bit.

The next part is always my favorite…. WATERCOLORING. For this card, I used some of my Distress Ink Minis. For the background I used Pumice Stone, Stormy Sky, and Dusty Concord – for the ooey gooey border I used Crushed Olive, Forest Moss, and Peeled Paint – and for the tree I used Frayed Burlap, Gathered Twigs, and Walnut Stain. I let all of those dry completely before painting the monsters.

For the monsters – I used Spiced Marmalade and Mustard Seed, then I added some Pumice Stone and a tiny bit of Black Soot under the fury monster and tree to give them some ground to stand on. Once everything was dried I used my Tombow Stamp Runner to add adhesive to all of the pieces and adhere them in place. Lastly, I made my card base out of some purple cardstock and ran my Wink of Stella Glitter Brush along the two long sides to give it some shine.

Happy Birthday, Butterfly!

Hi, there! I quickly wanted to share this card using the gorgeous Butterfly Die I received from Top Dog Dies. This large and intricate butterfly die also comes with another die as well! I ran this larger butterfly through my machine (it cut like BUTTER), then I quickly colored it with a rainbow of COPIC markers.

I used the largest rectangle from Lawn Fawn’s Large Stitched Rectangle Lawn Cuts to create my card base. I let the creased end of my card hang off of my cutting mat so that it got the stitched edge but it wasn’t cut completely off by the die. I then used the second largest rectangle from that same set, as well as the largest rectangle from the Small Stitched Rectangle Lawn Cuts to create the perfect mats from some Hello Sunshine papers.

As for that white stitched diagonal shape – I tried something a little funky. I wanted to see if I could get even more out of these dies… AND BOY COULD I!! I used the largest rectangle from the Large Stitched Rectangle Lawn Cuts again, but this time I cut it once, then cut it a second time to make a long, thin stitched rectangle, then I ran it through one more time, but tilted it to my desired angle and created this awesome strip… Here are some pictures that will hopefully help you understand what I did.

Start with this…

IMG_2315…Run it through your machine. Then run it through again like this…

IMG_2318You’ll get a piece that looks like this…

IMG_2319This is awesome if you want any size rectangle for your cards. You can make them as wide or skinny as you want. To get an angled piece, just run it one more time like this…

IMG_2320… and you’ll get this…

I used Violet’s ABC’s Stamp Set to create the “Happy Birthday” sentiment. I adhered the butterfly with some glossy accents just on the body so I could pop out the wings.

Here is the final card again…
