Just sharing a card I started last week and finished up this week, just in time for Easter.
The sweet girl + basket and the words are from Pretty Pink Posh, as are the sequins. Let’s be honest: I’m not the best color’er, but, good gosh, people, I try. I colored her in with markers and then added a few extra details with colored pencils and a white gel pen + some Glossy Accents and a Wink of Stella glitter pen (it’s subtle but there on the ears). I think she turned out alright.
The banner was cut with a die from Lawn Fawn (LOVE IT), and the patterned paper is from a stack of paper from My Favorite Things. Crazy thing. I colored the girl in first and went looking for patterned paper. I discovered that I am COMPLETELY lacking in purple patterned papers so I was totally lucky to find this piece in my MFT stash. I guess I could have went to the craft store (Oh, the horror! Hee!) to find something else, but I decided I could make do. Yep. Make do. (Translation: Not allowing myself to be tempted at the craft store by all the other stuff at the craft store seemed like a good idea at the time… because… seriously… who goes for one piece of paper and leaves with just one piece of paper? Not I, people. Not I. Anyhoo, I digress.)
Alright, friends. This is what I have for the day!
Thanks, as always, for stopping by. Always a treat when you do.
Back again with another take on this year’s Christmas Card Challenge with Ashley.
This is today’s card.
I once again used pulled out a Lawn Fawn stamp set. I used just one this time. That was the Snow Cool stamp set (and coordinating dies). I couldn’t resist adding bow ties to the penguins. I mean, it just gives them a little extra special character. You agree?
To make the hills seem a little more icy, I once again whipped out some glitter glue and put it along the slopes.
Alright. This is all I have for today. Be sure to bop on by Ashley’s blog to see her latest take on the challenge.
Another day. Another crack at this year’s Christmas Card Challenge with Ashley!
Just continued having some stamp-tastic fun by making this card.
I went Lawn Fawn stamp crazy… or cray cray, as some would say. 😉 I used all these stamp sets: Winter Alpaca; Happy Trails; Toboggan Together and Snow Cool. I also used the coordinating dies for all them, other than Snow Cool. Just used the sentiment and snowy pattern (at the top of the card) for that one.
The little hills in the background were cut with a die from My Favorite Things.
To make the snow pop, I once again whipped out some Nuvo Crystal Drops and added a few few dots to the snow. I think like how it just added a little bit of texture, as well as a bit of dimension too. Kinda fun!
Alright, so this is day 4 of the challenge.
Be sure to hit Ashley’s blog to see her take on this time. I’ll be back again Monday with another card based on the challenge.
Thanks, as always, for stopping by. I appreciate your kind words.
Another day. Another take on my Christmas Card Challenge with Ashley.
Here is today’s Christmas card.
Just had some fun with this one. Shopped my stamping stash and pulled out some awesome Lawn Fawn stamp sets and dies: Happy Trails; Toboggan Together and Snow Cool. One of things I dig quite a lot about Lawn Fawn is it’s so easy to mix and match their products together. I’m pretty sure all these things are from different releases. Kinda fun that they can all play together.
So I was going for a little snowy scene here. To make that stamped snowy background pop a little more, I added some dots with Nuvo Crystal Drops. I think it just gives the background a nice feel.
Also to make the scene a little more magical, I added some glitter glue to the top of the snowdrifts. Such an easy thing to do. Just required a little extra patience to give the glue time to dry.
Ok. That’s what I have today. Be sure to check out Ashley’s blog to see her latest take on the challenge.
Back again with another card to share! Ashley and I decided to change up our challenge for the next few weeks into a Halloween Card Challenge. So this is my first take on the new challenge.
This card is pretty much all Lawn Fawn, all the time. 😉 I saw the new Happy Howloween set and had to have it. So. Darn. Cute. And the challenge somewhat justified my having to have it. Hee hee.
I was totally cheapo though and didn’t get the coordinating dies. (Heehee. Yes, I believe in honesty in blogging and paper crafting.) So instead, I relied on my old friend, my trusty scissors to cut out the hat, mask and other accessories for the cute doggies. Fussy cutting? Sure it took me a little longer but still did the trick.
To make the noses pop, I used some Ebony Black Novo Crystal Drops. Word to wise if you haven’t used them before: A little bit of droppage goes a longgggg way. You don’t need a lot at all.
Be sure to swing by Ashley’s blog for her take on the challenge this week. I’m sure it will be rad-to-the-add.
See you again soon, friends.
Another day. Another Birthday Card Challenge card with my friend, Ashley!
This is my take on the challenge today.
Got to admit: This one was a quickie. I spent a whopping 15 minutes on it. 🙂 Short on time so did the best I could.
Pulled out some old die-cuts from October Afternoon and paired them with a sentiment from Lawn Fawn’s Big Scripty Words stamp set, which I just plain love.
The sequins? Well, they are there because the card needed something. It was… boring. So yeah. And I mis-inked on the birthday word so I strategically covered up the bad inking with a sequin. Don’t tell, k? Secret’s safe with you, I hope.
Alright! That’s what I have. Be sure to check out Ashley’s blog to see her take on the challenge this week.
Me again. Meet today’s card.
I just needed a little “me” time the other day to recharge. So, yeah. I turned off for an hour or so, turned my TV on to old sitcom reruns and and made this card. Card therapy…. it always seems to do the trick.
I used the new Booyah stamp set from Lawn Fawn to stamp the ghosts, hearts and words, When I saw the stamp set, I knew it had to be mine. I mean, seriously, ghosts and cute little accessories for them. You can’t go wrong with that. 🙂
The delight the stamp set brings me is high! So, you know, you are probably going to see a series of Booyah cards here at some point… hee! Consider yourselves warned. (Yes, yes, friends. There’s a little pile of ghosts of my desk waiting to be put of cards. Did I just admit that? )
By the way, I didn’t use real patterned paper for the background. I created my own with the Starry Backdrops stamp set (also from Lawn Fawn). I used a light blue ink to stamp the pattern right onto a light blue cardstock. Easy peasy.
Alright. That’s what I have got. I will be back again later, gators!
Thanks for stopping by.
