Home Sweet Home - Card

Hello everyone,

I hope you all enjoyed the holidays with friends and family and were able to get in some crafty time.  I have been fortunate enough to have spent time with my family and some time in my craft room with some goodies that Santa brought me.

Now on to my card.

I decided to make a square card as I don't make much else other than the standard A2 or 4bar size cards.  I used Recollections 110# white card stock and the Simon Says Stamp stitched squares dies and I used the largest one for the outside and the thirst largest for the inside.  I love how the stitches are on the inside and out.  Then I used the Lawn Fawn "Home Sweet Home" stamp and die set for the banner and sentiment and stamped that in Memento ink.

I used my foam tape to make the shaker portion of the card and I added in Pretty Pink Posh Crystal Clear and Winter Snow Mix sequins and added in some star and other Martha Stewart shaped glitters (Christmas gift from my Mom <3) as well as some micro beads from Recollections.

I used copics (0, B21, B24 & B26) to colour in the banner to tie in with the sequins.  I then put all that on to a 4.25 x 425 card base.

Thanks for stopping by!

See you again soon

Christmas Gift Card Holders

Hi everyone!

I have a few gift card holders for you today.  I was inspired by Debby Hughes as well as Laura Bassen with their gift card holders.  

This is the one Debby Hughes had up on her blog here, and I used the SSS Stitched rectangle dies to cut to the patterned paper.  I cut out two pieces, one for the top and one for the bottom.  I used the LF Joy to the Woods set and heat embossed it with Hero Arts white embossing powder.  I use the LF Stitched Hillside Borders dies to cut out the snowy slope.

I used 1/4 in double sided tape to adhere the sides so the gift card can slip in and be a bit snug so it doesn't fall out.  

 Then I used LF Peppermint Lawn trimmings  to keep the holder closed.  The great thing is you can make these for any occasion you want.

Here's another one I did with more Christmas patterned paper and Maya Road twine.

This was inspired by Laura Bassen's gift card holder and this is a card that opens and the gift card holder is on the inside panel.  I used Recollections 110# white card stock and LF Deck the Halls stamp and die set.  I used SSS Olive and Chocolate dye inks to stamp the images and sentiment.

Here is another one I used the LF patterned paper (which almost broke my heart to use as this is the one thing I hoard is LF paper).

Thanks for stopping by!

See you again soon.

Holiday Cards

Hi everyone,

I'm here today with a couple of cards that I've worked on the past week.  I revived my SSS order and had a few minutes to play.

First card is the SSS Furry Cat and Box stamp set and it's just adorable.  I used copics to colour in the cat and patterned paper to paper piece the box.  I used a little bow that came in the Limited Edition Holiday kit from SSS, stamped the sentiment with SSS Schoolhouse ink and finished it off with some enamel dots from MME that I purchased at my local Michaels last holiday season.

The second card I used the Joy to the Woods stamp and die set from Lawn Fawn.  I used copics to colour in the images and Versafine Onyx for the sentiment. 

I picked up some Heidi Swapp Shimmer pray from Michaels that was on sale in mint and used that in the background and I used the Lawn Fawn stitched rectangles to die cut the panel. I then finished it off with Pretty Pink Posh sequins in 6mm marshmallow and popped it up with some foam tape onto an A2 sized card base in 110# Recollections white card stock.

Lawnscaping Challenge #96!

 Hello everyone,

I have another card that I am entering in the very last Lawnscaping Challenge for 2014!  I can't believe it.

Today's challenge is anything Christmas.

I used the Lawn Fawn's Joy to the Woods stamp and die set for the birch trees and the sentiment and the Winter Owl.  I used my Prismacolor Coloured pencils to colour him in and copics for the trees.

I die cut a square from the SSS In Stitches and cut it out of SSS Fog card stock (I think, it came in a SSSCK).  I used the Mama Elephant Sunny Skies set and I used the rays and stamped it in Fog and Smoke SSS inks and off set them. I used the falling snow stencil from SSS and used the Fog ink.

I used Wink of Stella clear glitter pen on the snow flakes, square die cut and the Owl's scarf.  I had just run out of the glitter out so I used Jennifer's suggestion and filled it up with a bit of water and almost good as new.

For the shaker I used beads and micro beads of greys, back and clear and to complete the card I used Pretty Pink Posh Marshmallow 6mm sequins. 

Thanks for stopping by!

See you soon.

Gift Card Holders

Hello everyone,

I have a couple gift card holders for you today. 

I have to thank Laura Bassen as they have giving me lots of inspiration for these gift card holders.  I used the pop-up holder that she showed on the Simon Says Stamp blog here.

I used the tree from Mama Elephant and the moose from Lawn Fawn.  I stamped the sentiment in Color Box white pigment ink and then heat embossed it with Hero Arts white embossing powder.  I was hoping to fill in some of the spots that didn't stamp well.  

I then cut along the black lines just under the moose's ear and chin and used some embroidery floss in green and tied a little mini bell around his neck.  I colour in both images with my copics.  Since I had coloured these quite a few weeks ago, unfortunately I didn't write the colours down.  

This one I used the tree from Lawn Fawn's Critters in the Forest and the adorable little ones are from Mama Elephant's In My Heart.  I stamped the Merry with the November SSSCK of the month and then I die cut the Christmas from SSS out of glimmer paper from Michaels.

Thanks or stopping by!
See you soon.

Lawnscaping Challenge #95 - White on White

Hey everyone!

I just wanted to update this post as I was chosen as Honourable Gnome for the card I sent in.

So excited!!

See you again soon!

Hello everyone,

I know it's been a while since my last post and I apologize for that.  Christmas is quickly sneaking up on me and it's now two weeks to go!  Yikeeeesssss!!!!

Now for something fun!  I was so excited to see this challenge as I love monochromatic colours.

Now for my card.   I used the trees from Joy to the Woods, the owl from Critters in the Arctic and the bunny from the Snow Day set.

I used the coordinating dies to cut out the owl and bunny. I used the Stitched Hillside borders to cut out the snow drift and finished it off with some stickles.

I have to say the card is not this dark.  For the colours I used my copics, N0, N2 & N4 and for the bunny's ears and tail I used R20.  I used my clear Wink of Stella clear glitter pen for the ears and cheeks on the bunny and nose on the owl.  I stamped all the images and sentiment with Memento London Fog ink.

Thanks for stoping by!
