Lawn Fawn Christmas Tag Card

Happy Friday my friends! 2 of my 3 kids are home from school and you all must know what that means….I am not getting very much accomplished! Ha! I do, however have a couple of fun cards to share with you today.

I am obsessed with tags and vellum and kraft paper. Combine all 3 together and throw in some white embossing powder?!  I am in heaven :)

These two cards were such fun to create and could very easily be changed up with different papers and images to create a wide variety of super sweet Christmas cards.

I have the fourth card and video in my Mini-Halloween series to share with you :) This one features some adorable images from Mama Elephant :)

I had a lot of fun creating this cute scene! Originally, I created these cards to give away but they somehow have ended up decorating my mantle above the fire-place. They really look great all together!

Speaking of looking great together, the images from Lawn Fawn and Mama Elephant compliment each other perfectly!

Lawn Fawn ~ Spooky Halloween Card

Happy Tuesday my lovelies :) Hoping you are having a great day! I have a fun Halloween card to share with you today featuring some Lawn Fawn Images from a couple of their stamp sets. I love how you can mix them up and create fun and unique scenes. For this card I used images from Sweater Weather as well as Monster Mash. I also used the co-coordinating die sets for each stamp set. Love, love the ease of dies instead of fussy cutting :)

I think these images can be used for a variety of different cards, but together, they suit my Halloween scene just perfectly.

DSC_7953 copy

I created the background my blending various distress ink colors onto some watercolor paper. Then, I spritzed the paper with water to create this misty, rainy effect. I had already embossed the moon (I used a circle from an old PTI set) using white embossing powder. I just wiped the distress ink off using a baby wipe. As you can see, it stayed white.

I used some Landscaping dies to create the grass by cutting them out of the same watercolor paper and then just sponging over them with more Distress ink colors. I didn’t spritz these with water.  The top piece was adhered using some foam adhesive which adds a great feeling of dimension to the card.

I stamped the tree from Sweater Weather over on the left-hand side and then, without re-inking, I stamped it two more times. I believe this is called “ghost stamping” and I love the effect it gave my card. Then, I used the co-coordinating die for the tree from Sweater Weather and die cut some dark brown cardstock. I adhered this to the right-hand side.

I stamped, copic colored and die-cut several of the images from the Monster Mash set. Two make them pop a little more, I added some darker dots and some white dots (sharpie poster paint) to the images. The were all adhered using more foam adhesive (highly addictive). This picture below gives you a better idea of the layers that the foam gives the card :)

If you are a regular on this blog, you probably have noticed my new found obsession with Lawn Fawn products :) When I saw that they were having a DT call for their Facebook Inspiration Team, I just had to enter :)  I am keeping my fingers crossed :)

Thanks for stopping by and have a great rest of the day!

Stamp and Create ~ October Challenge and More!

Happy Monday! Hope your weekend was fabulous and this lovely Monday wasn’t too hard on you!

I have my card for the newest Stamp and Create with Magnolia Challenge to share with you :) The challenge is “Fall Accessory”. I was a little stumped but Lacey suggested some feathers and I went with it!

DSC_8128 copy

I created a small tag using some left-over card-stock and patterned paper. I used Sitting Witch Tilda from Magnolia and as my Fall accessory, I embellished with Rooster White Plumage Feathers. It looks a little spider-webesque, don’t you think?

Stamp and Create

Happy Monday and Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canadians :) Hope your day is filled with family, friends, turkey and PIE! My pie just left the oven and the turkey is going in shortly :)

I of course have a Christmas card to show you (totally not organized)

DSC_8112 copy

I used Magnolia’s Tilda on Roof, Sweet Jylehat and assorted Snowflakes to creat this. I airbrushed with Copic markers. The background is actually more green but is showing up as yellow. Not sure why. The sentiment is from a PTI set.

There are a lot of stamps and items on sale!!
Go check them out!!

Thanks for swinging by and have a great day.

Mini-Halloween Card Series #2 Kitty Cat

Happy Friday! I am internally shouting “TGIF”!!! This has been a LONG week and I am happy, happy that this part of it is over. Now I am looking forward to the week-end filled with family, fun and Thanksgiving FOOD!

DSC_8096 copy

I am super happy to be able to share the next card and video in my Mini- Halloween Card series. Next up, just about the cutest kitty cat stamp I have seen!

DSC_8084 copy

This second card pairs up the Cat and the Hat (ha!) , landscape dies from Mama Elephant and a fun fence die from La-La Land Craft Stamps. I love how the proportions of all these elements are perfect for each other. I like being able to mix and match my products to create unique looks.

In today’s video, I am not sharing the actual putting together of the card. Instead, I take you through the stamping process I used to save time as I created this series of cards. If you would like to see if over at my YouTube channel, you can find it –> here.
