It’s a Snowy Lawn Fawn Christmas!

Saturday, September 20th, 2014

   Can you see why I’m totally hooked on Lawn Fawn??? OMGoodness! It’s all so cute!!!

   The only copic coloring on this card is using B0000 to color some Neenah Solar White paper before I die cut it. Now, not all the snowflakes on this card are from Lawn Fawn, but the pretty ones that look stitched are!

   I started out with a 3.25″ x 6.25″ piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock. Then I did the die cut inlay technique with Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Snowflakes die. I’m not going to go into detail on how to do it here. There are LOTS of videos on YouTube with how to do it. Even Lawn Fawn has one on their channel. I used the sentiment from Lawn Fawn’s Snow Day stamp set. I thought the Simon Says Stamp Smoke ink would look the best. First, I stamped the snowflake from Lawn Fawn’s Winter Gifts tag set a couple of times in Winter ink from Mama Elephant. The other small snowflakes were cut (using my Martha Stewart border punch) from blue & white glitter paper, blue cardstock, the copic colored cardstock, and some vellum. No snowflake looks the same and I wanted to make it a really beautiful snowfall. After adhering down the snowflakes, I added some light blue rhinestones and some clear rhinestones. Then I made small dots using my Stickles glitter glue and Pearl Pen. I just love how this came out.

   After my panel was done, I mounted it to some darker blue cardstock that I colored with a silver pen. This way some of the blue showed through, but most was silver. Finally, I matted adhered everything with foam tape to my 3.5″ x 6.5″ card base.

I’m sorry the color is so off in these. I was trying to get each photo where you could see the vellum snowflakes.

   For the inside, I wanted to continue the snowflake theme, but not to the same extent as on the front. So, I used stamped the “happy holidays” greeting, also from the Winter Gifts stamp set, in SSS Smoke ink. Then, I used some left over snowflakes I had cut for the front (I cut out way more than I needed) and spaced them in a visual triange around the sentiment.

That’s all I have for you today!

It’s Lawn Fawn again!

Friday, September 19th, 2014

   Short post today. I’m going to try this out to see if it takes me less time to blog than make the card. 😉 I’m back again with another card I made from Lawn Fawn’s Joy to the Woods stamp set. This time, I made this one with my grandmother specifically in mind. The cardinal was the main reason I bought this stamp set! She loves cardinals!

   This card measures 9″ x 3.75″. Another card that isn’t a normal size for me. 😉 This was the first card I did with the masking technique. Like the last one, the background is done using the copic airbrush system. The birdhouse was an afterthought, so I added it with a rolled up glue dot. I just love how lovely the sentiment looks there!

If you’d like, maybe I can do a tutorial on how I did these two cards.

It’s a Lawn Fawn Christmas!

Friday, September 19th, 2014

   I have always loved looking at Lawn Fawn stamps, and recently started to feed my addictions… We won’t go into how much. I took a break this summer to visit family in Florida. Very fun! After that, I’ve been having to get back into “school mode”. Now I feel I’m pretty well into it and can go back to blogging cards more frequently.

   This is only my second card using a masking technique. I’m pretty excited about it.


I’m not sure I like the stripe across the bottom of the photo. I think I may change it.

   For my card today, I’m using Lawn Fawn’s Joy to the Woods stamp set. I’m also using Stitched Hillside Borders, upside down, along the bottom of my card. The background was created using the Copic airbrush system and then stamped over it with Starry Backdrops and embossed with a sparkly embossing powder. This way you get the hint of stars in the background, but the focus remains on the trees and fox.

I decided y’all needed some detail shots…

   To start, I cut a piece of cream cardstock to 6.5″ x 3.5″. I know, weird size, right? I really like it! After I did that, I stamped the double tree from the stamp set using Memento Rich Cocoa ink. Then, I stamped the same trees onto post-it notes to create masks. Once these were covered, I could stamp the single tree and have it appear to be behind the trees. Next, I covered those trees in masks and then stamped the fox on the right side. After masking it, I airbrushed the night sky, stamped the stars & sentiment, and then removed the masks. I then started coloring in the details of the trees and fox. Once finished with that, I used the border dies to make custom snow banks to let my fox walk on. On both of these, I used a Versamark ink pad along the side, then applied sticky embossing powder, and then my glitter (Martha Stewart Crystal Fine). These were placed where I wanted them at the bottom of the card.

   As you can see in the photo above, I added Copic Opaque White using an embossing stylus to make them round. Then in the other photo above, you can see that I also put it on the tree limbs.

   After all this, I mounted it onto a card base made from Kraft cardstock. Then I stamped the greeting on the inside.

I used a no-lines coloring technique to color the holly, from the same stamp set.

That’s it for me today! Hope you enjoyed it! Please be sure to leave me some love down below! It always motivates me to create more. 🙂
