Picture Changer

I discovered the Lawn Fawn Picture Changer Die cut about a year ago. When I purchased the die set and add on I also picked up a few Lawn Fawn Stamps to use with it. One set is not for the set, but it was so cute I just could not pass it up!

This sweet little Fortune Teller Tabby set is actually made for the spinner set.

To create the glass on the ball I covered it with a thin layer of Glossy Accents.

I used Tri-Blend Spectrum Noir markers to color in the image on Solar White Cardstock.

For the following two cards I used the Picture Changer Thin Cut and Shake Your Tail Feather’s Stamp.

I love the Peacock stamp set! There are so many things that it can be used for in addition to this kind of interactive card.

I created a nont-traditional Christmas card with this little gingerbread man — Oh Snap. I did not get my placement correct on the card. This is one of those times that I say “Oops! Oh well”, shrug my shoulders and move on. I will mail it to someone who won’t mind!

Here is a video on how to use these thin cuts along with Easter Before and After Stamps:

Here is another one using a Candy Corn Stamp Set:

Last, but not least, here is a video for all you Lawn Fawn Fans! I took the class at Creativation 2020 in which I learned how to create several cards with their new dies and saw the new products. I share them here:

I have had the pleasure of taking a couple Make and Take’s from Kelly — the Founder of Lawn Fawn. It truly is a pleasure! She is very personable and friendly. I am a Lawn Fan because of her. I like to support small businesses that are made of up genuinely good people — she is a great person!

Until next time ~ Happy Crafting!

Magical Easter Card

This is an unusual year with the Coronavirus that is sweeping our world. I am so grateful that my children are teenagers and young adults. I enjoy their company and they don’t need constant supervision or entertainment. With all of that being said, we are aware that Easter may be different this year. It may just be the five of us around the table. However, we do still love our family and want to show them even if we can’t be with them right now. We all helped make cards to send out to our extended family over the course of the next few weeks. To keep teenagers interested I opted to create interactive cards using dies from Lawn Fawn.

Family Craft Night Prepping

To have a successful Family Craft night a little bit of prep work is beneficial. I die cut and stamped images for 20 cards (5 of us only needed to make 4 cards – 2 of each style). The stamp and die storage sleeves were perfect to organize each card kit. You could also use sandwich bags. The first card we create together and they do the next on their own. We repeat the process with each new interactive card.

Each card was signed by who created it and a note stating this was a family effort. It really makes receiving the cards extra special.

Magic Iris

.Here are a few of the completed cards in the different phase of the card:

Picture Changer

The Magic Picture Changer card was a fun one to create! You just need to run a powder pouch over it to help it slide smooth. Also, It is easier to stamp and color the image after you have die cut it. The video on how to create these cards is here:

Stop Hounding Me Foxy!

Lawn Fawn has the best interactive dies on the market. Usually I can withstand the temptation to purchase them, but then the Magic Picture Changer came along and I just had to have it. The Magic Picture Changer allows the card holder to pull a tab and reveal a different image.

Cute little card, right? Then start pulling the tab…

To reveal another picture!

Tips and Tricks

There are a few things to keep in mind when creating a card with this die.

  1. Stamp the images after you die cut your pieces.
  2. Use a little powder on the pieces to ensure a smooth transition.
  3. The scored lines are to be folded and adhered to create a track for the card.
  4. Adhere the pieces by placing adhesive in the corners and not along the edges. This will allow everything to move freely while holding it together.
  5. Place the tab on last. This will not only serve as a cute way to tell the holder to pull it, but it also is a blocker. It will stop the inside piece from poking out of the bottom of the card.

I created a tutorial on how to assemble these types of cards. It will provide clarity on the above tips.
