Lawn Fawn: Winter Scene


Hello! I hope you're enjoying the new year so far! lt's been super cold here and I am loving it! I'm a big fan of winter, and as long as it's cold outside, I want to make wintery cards! 


So I have a fun card today made with some cute Lawn Fawn products! 



I used the Stitched Hilltop Backdrop Portrait and Landscape dies for my card. I did it in the Landscape frame, but used houses and trees from both sets. I used Bristol Board card stock for everything here.


The background was blended with Distress inks, and for all of the elements, I blended Distress inks onto my Bristol card stock first, then cut them out. I adhered everything with liquid adhesive and some with my tape runner.


I stamped the sentiment in VersaMark and heat embossed it with white embossing powder, then cut it out with the Everyday Sentiment Banners dies. I  added a few little snowflakes from the Mini Snowflake dies, and some tiny white dots with acrylic paint for a little detail to the houses and trees.

All of the supplies I've used are listed below!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Neat & Tangled: January Release!


Hi there! Welcome to the last day of the January  Neat & Tangled release countdown! All of the new products are available in the Neat & Tangled Store NOW!



My card today uses two of the new release products, the Nesting Hexagons Coverplate, and the Koalifications stamp set and coordinating dies. For my background, I blended some Abandoned Coral and Peacock Feathers Distress ink. I then cut out the Nesting Hexagons cover plate and layered that over the blended background. I blended some more of the Abandoned Coral distress ink onto some card stock and cut the circle out with the Making Waves die set. I added this with foam tape. 



The cute Koala was colored with Copic markers and cut out with the coordinating die. I adhered him with foam tape to the circle.

Spellbinders Die of The Month: January Kit



Hello, I excited to share some cards with you today that I created with the new January Spellbinders Die of The Month Club kit



This kit is full of a beautiful assortment of hearts, flowers, doilies and leaves. It's perfect for your Valentines cards, or really they could be paired up with just about anything to create cards and projects for all occasions!



I used an assortment of different Distress inks, Sprays, and Powders to create the papers that I used to die cut the images from. Everything is linked below in the supplies section. After diecutting all of the pieces, I arranged them in a pleasing manner and adhered some with foam tape and some flat with liquid adhesive.



***



The kit comes with this beautiful lattice heart that I love! I cut it out of the pink paper that is going across the card, then cut the overlay with white card stock and layered that over the pink, letting the purple background paper show through. 



Again all of my papers were colored before diecutting with Distress inks, Lindy's Sprays and Magicals. After adhering the heart I created a small cluster of flowers and leaves, and added the stamped sentient with foam tape. 



I also added some tiny white dots with acrylic paint and some sequins to finish it up!



The new Spellbinders January die kit can be found HERE!

All the supplies I used can be found below in the supply list.

Hi there! Welcome to the first day of the January  Neat & Tangled release countdown! All of the new products will be available in the Neat & Tangled Store on Friday Jan 5th at 8:00 am EST!

Although I am totally not done with Christmas yet, it was fun to put it aside and work on some other things. The new Neat & Tangled release if filled with cuteness!



For my first card, I'm using The Maze Die and A-Mazing stamp set. I watercolored a rainbow of colors on some watercolor paper for the background. I cut the Maze out of white card stock and layered that on top with foam tape.


I added a strip of striped paper and a strip of pink card stock along the edge and stamped the sentiment in black ink. The tiny heart was cut out of the watercolored piece and adhered with foam tape.
