TRICK OR TREAT, TREATS OF COURSE! (2)

I combined two Lawn Fawn stamp sets for this Halloween card: Costume Party and Booyah.


I started on the elements for the background. For the sky, I used the Cloud stencil, from My Favorite Things. I used Wilted Violet Distress Ink to create a spooky sky. For the ground portion, I die cut a tree hill, with the Stitched Tree Borders. I made it black with Black Soot Distress Ink. I heat embossed the sentiment onto it, with white embossing powder from Ranger.


I stamped the images and colored them with Copic Markers. Here are the colors I used:
Mummy: C0 - C3
Ghosts: C0 - C2
Skin: E00 - E11
Witch: W5 - W7/ YG07 - G28
Hair: E31 - E33
Pumpkin: Y38 - YR16 - YR07/ YG07 - G28
Broom: E08 - E18/ E31 - E33
Bowl of candy: C0 - C3 - C5/ V04 - V17/ Y38 - YR07
Candy bar: YR07 - Y38/ V04 - V17


I fussy cut all the images and assembled the card. I added the panel onto a Noble Fir cardbase and rounded off the top right corner.


I will also make some Halloween treats soon, so stay tuned!

WISHING YOU LOTS OF SMILES THIS HOLIDAY SEASON (2)

For this Christmas/ winter themed card, I combined a bunch of Lawn Fawn stamp sets: Critters in the Arctic, Sealed with a Kiss and Snow Cool.


I wanted te create my own blended background, without to many layers. For the bottom part, which I masked off, I wanted to create waves. I used the Cloud stencil from My Favorite Things. I you flip the paper around, you can also make waves with this stencil. I used Thumbled Glass Distress Ink for this. I switched my mask to the other side of the paper and blended, very softly, the color Iced Spruce. This is the snow bank, which I didn't want just plain white. For the sky, I started at the top with Squeezed Lemonade. I added a little but if Carved Pumpkin to the edges, but softened it with the Squeezed Lemonade again. I stamped my sentemint in Soot Ink.


I stamped all the images and colored them with Copic Markers. It's very simple coloring, here are the colors I used:
Walrus: E31 - E33
Seals: W0 - W3 - W5
Ice + igloo: C0 - C2/ W7


I fussy cut all the images and assembled the card. I adhered the panel onto a Peacock cardbase.

I made it a Christmas card, because of the sentiment, but with a different greeting you can make it perfect for any other occassion.

SENDING YOU WARM HUGS (3)

Time to get out the Cocoa Cups die set from My Favorite Things, for this Christmas card.


I started on the background. I die cut a white piece of cardstock with the Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX. I didn't want to leave it plain white, so I took a stencil from Altenew (Halftone Stencil) and blended Iced Spruce onto the paper. I stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black Ink and heat embossed it with Clear Gloss embossing powder from Wow.


I went over to my die cutting. I die cut all the elements from Ballet Slippers cardstock and Peacock cardstock. I used regular brown and white cardstock for the tea and cream. I assembled the elements. I added some White Neon Amplify from Tsukineko to the cream and hit it with my heat tool. The white starts to puff and it looks like actual cream. I added some glitter to the hearts on the mugs, with the Clear Sparkle Pen from Spectrum Noir and then added Glossy Accents to them.


For the tea bag, I used a piece of twine that I adhered to the label of the tea bag and the other end I tucked under the tea.


I adhered the mugs onto the stenciled background and added the panel onto a piece of Perfectly Plaid Chill paper. The completed panel I added to a Ballet Slippers cardbase.

A hug in a mug!

For this simple Christmas card, I used the Cheery Christmas stamp set from Lawn Fawn.


I started by die cutting two rectangles, with the Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables. One from Perfectly Plaid Chill paper and the other from Sticky note cardstock. The plaid one I trimmed and then adhered it to the Sticky Note paper. I stamped the sentiment into the left corner.


I stamped all the images. The mistletoe I stamped in Freshly Cut Grass Ink and the ladder in Doe Ink. The other images I colored with Copic Markers. Here are the colors I used:
Squirrels: E08 - E18
Bird: BG34 - BG13/ R14
Santa hat + berries: R14 - R46


I fussy cut the images and assembled the card. I added the panel onto a Blue Jay cardbase, leaving a big border around the panel.


Really simple and I used the color pallette from the pattern paper.

The hills I die cut from Narwhal cardstock, using the Stitched Mountain Borders. And I die cut a scalloped circle from Raspberry cardstock, using the Scalloped Circle Stackables.

Three cards from one stamp set, I love doing this and having them in a similar style. Or as here, the same design with only the images and sentiments being different.

WISHING YOU HAPPINESS (1)

This time, I didn't create a Christmas card with the Winter Village stamp set from Lawn Fawn, but a new home card.


I started by stamping one of the houses and the street light. I colored them with Copic Markers. Here are the colors I used:
House: NG23 - BG13 - BG49
Roof: Y00 - Y02
Rest of the house: C3 - C5
Street Light: Y02


I stamped a banner from Bannertastic and used a sentiment from Seaside Seagulls, by MFT. I colored the banner with C0, C3 and C5 Copic Markers.


I die cut a piece of Perfectly Plaid Chill paper, with the Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables. With the Small Stitched Circle Stackables I die cut a piece of Sunflower cardstock. I also used the Sunflower cardstock to cut the base of the card, with the Fancy Scalloped Rectangle Stackables.


I assembled the card and assed it to a Peacock cardbase.

I'm a huge fan of this color pallette, that comes with the Perfectly Plaid Chill paper pads.
