Craftie Cafe: Lawn Fawn Meow Colour Burst Card

Jo Herbert 140518 Meow Picture 1

Hi All, welcome to my card set creation for the Craftie Cafe design team. I had so much fun playing along with the Ken Oliver Colour Burst range to add some intense vibrancy to my cardset. I have played with these before and let me just say I am so glad I have rediscovered them. I love that initially it doesn’t look like you have put that much of the pigment down but once touched with water it was like an explosion of intense , vibrant and beautiful colours on my cards. I have added water with my Distress Sprayer as it disperses a fine mist when pulled in full spritz mode. Now my biggest tip when it comes to handling these powders is to make sure they are thoroughly dried before touching with your fingers as most likely you will get them on there. Now if you don’t mind having them on your fingers feel free to continue on. But because in my case I was using a white top folding card base I had to be a little more mindful of my hands.

The 3 Colorbursts I have used are Violet, Ultramarine & Phthalo Green. All Ken Oliver colour ranges have an array of pigments in the same colours leaving a range of intensity leaving a WOW factor behind.

For my product focus I have chosen this adorable Lawn Fawn “Meow You Doin” stampset. I hope you enjoy my process video with this stampset.

For the dies I have used the Lawn Fawn Cross stitched in the small rectangle and circle range.

Here are the ink colours I have used from the Lawn Fawn range.

I feel like my cardset has a mixed media to it with the stencil, texture paste and the colour burst. I don’t know why I felt compelled to make this type of card but I just had all these items out on my desk and just went for it. My layering process started with the colour burst panel, then stencils and texture paste then dies.

Craftie Cafe: Lawn Fawn Meow You Doin?

Hi All, Welcome to today’s blog post for the Craftie Cafe online store. 

Jo Herbert 300418 Meow Picture 1

Today I made a cute card with the Lawn Fawn “Meow You Doin?” stampset. One of my all time favourite techniques is creating my own background by repeat stamping. In this case I have heat embossed by using the a clear sticky ink as well as a clear hologram sparkle embossing powder from WOW Embossing.

I am very excited to announce that Craftie Cafe now stocks WOW embossing powders! Who doesn’t love the WOW Embossing powder range.

  I have kept today’s card very simple which I have added bold bright colours from the Lawn Fawn Rainbow 6 x 6 inch Paper Pack placed behind the die cut heart window of the heat embossed panel & rainbow cardstock pack.

The card base is a white top folding base as this is my favourite type of card to use which I cut an score in bulk to have handy at all times. I stamped the cat and the tin of tuna stamp with Versafine Onyx Black ink which I have hand cut out. I chose not to colour the images in this time as I liked the stark white that coordinates with the card base and to coordinate white on the pattern paper.

Using the same paper pack I chose to heat emboss with Lawn Fawn White embossing powder on a panel for the sentiment. To finish the card off I have added some pretty pink posh clear sequins.

Craftie Cafe: Lawn Fawn Easter Cards



Hi All and welcome to today’s blog post for the Craftie Cafe online store.  As you can see by my card creations I am focusing on Easter. Today I have used mainly Lawn Fawn  products as well as Distress Oxide Inks. I have done a very light water colouring on the bunnies but nothing complicated as I made these in bulk.

The most tedious part of the whole card process was the Lawn Fawn Quilted backdrop where I poke all the wholes out to reveal the colour cardstock I used as a card base.

I then heavily foam mounted little rectangles behind each quilted die as you will see in my You Tube video tutorial. I did not hold back with my foam mount adhesive through out these cards lol



Just how sweet are the Heart stack-able dies both the Lacey and stitched?  I love how these Lawn Fawn dies are well co-ordinated to nest within each other.

I colour coordinated the ink and the cardstock as I wanted to keep these simple yet sweet and able to make these in bulk. To do this I used the Ranger Distress Oxide Inks and ranger cardstock.

I plan to send these out to the in-laws for Easter as I wont’ be seeing them during this Easter time.

Do you send Easter Cards out? I would love to know what type of cards you make for Easter? I have lately to gravitated towards cute and sweet cards especially in the past couple of years where as before hand I use to make lots of florals or religious base Easter Cards.


Thanks a million for stopping by.

Happy Paper Crafting

Hugs Jo

Craftie Cafe: Lawn Fawn Easter Treat Bags


Jo Herbert - 050318 Friends Pic 1

Hi all, welcome to today’s blog post where I have made some adorable Easter treat bags.

These are super sweet and easy to make. These are for my kids to use  for our Easter egg hunt.

I have used mostly Lawn Fawn products for today’s creation.  I purchased from my local dollar tree store some craft paper bags and some shredded coloured paper to stuff these bags with and yes there is room for Easter Eggs also.

The cardstock from Lawn Fawn Rainbow collection was perfect for die cutting these chickies.

To add colour to the cheeks I have picked ink with a Fantastix bullet tip and dipped into the Lawn Fawn Ballet Slippers Ink. To highlight and add some extra details I have used a white gel pen.

I have used the Watercolor paper pad collection to die cut the Lawn Fan Fancy Scalloped Circles Stackable dies .  With the same paper pad collection I have also die cut the bows out to tie the whole project in together.

I have added some inspiration cuts from Lawn Fawn on how else to use these Lawn Fawn Happy Hatchlings dies.

Craftie Cafe: Taylored Expressions Calendar Critters Card


Hi Everyone and welcome to today’s cute card creation using planner stamps from Taylored Expressions for the Craftie Cafe design team.

The cute little critters from the Taylored Expressions Calendar critters stampset are just sooo adorable and I had so much fun playing and stamping with them in my previous Craftie Cafe blog post I just couldn’t help design a card with them. This way you get to see that it is not just for the Calendar Kit but can use them in your everyday stamping and would make a great essential stampset to add to your collection.

Now for the card …… for added Texture to my cards I have started using embossing folders again as the ones from Taylored Expressions do not only add such a unique gorgeous elements to the card but a 3D element that adds texture finishing the overall card creation.

I have repeat stamped the same little critter that I have penciled coloured in on a sandy gray coloured cardstock to created a faux pattern panel that I adhered down on a white top folding card front on the left hand side with foam tape so it pops off the card front.

I am just loving the cross stitched die designs from Lawn Fawn. Lawn Fawn offers them in circles, rectangles and squares which are all available in the Craftie Cafe Online Store. These cross stitched designs add an interesting & fun element to otherwise would be a plain die cut shape. Here I have cut a little off the left hand side of the circle to tuck underneath the tag.

If you are yet to try the embossing powder range from Lawn Fawn please do yourself a favour and add them to your collection as the quality is amazing!

Check out my video of this card making process for this fun card creation.
