Hi Friends! It's time again to get cracking on Christmas! I've got a couple of cute projects using a bunch of Lawn Fawn products. I created holiday shaker card and two ornaments using a bunch of bright colors. I'm definitely guilty of hoarding the new let it shine paper pack. It's absolutely gorgeous! I love the gold foiling on a few of the papers!
Stop by Jenn's blog for more inspiration from my fellow crafty friends.
To start with the card, I ink blended a background using an A2 piece of Bristol card stock and my home made stencils (see other posts to see how I did that using dies and acute sheets). Distress ink colors used for the background (top top bottom): candied apple, picked raspberry, worn lipstick, carved pumpkin, mustard seed, cracked pistachio, lucky clover and twisted citron. Next, I used the four square backdrop portrait die and the new let it shine paper to cut the front window piece. Acetate sheet was adhered to the back of the window to create a shaker window. I added some colorful beads and clear confetti from pretty pink posh to the shaker and glued it to the ink blended card base using double foam tape.
Next, images from a create was stirring were stamped using black ink and colored with copic markers. I cut the images using the coordinating dies and adhered them to my card front. White gel pen used for accents. The sentiment was white heat embossed onto a piece of mermaid cardstock cut using the simple wavy banners die.

Hi Friends! Today I'm sharing this one layer card using a masking technique and some fall Pretty Pink Posh products.
To create this card, I first stamped the center image from pumpkin patch critters using black ink. Then I created a mask using post-it full stick notes. Next, I used the fall borders stamp set and stamped over the center image. Then I created mask for the pumpkins using post-it full sticky notes. After the mask was created, I ink blended a night sky using various blue inks and a bit of black soot ink around the edges. I splattered the background with water and dabbed it with a bit of paper towel. I used a black gel pen and white pen to add stars to the background.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope you try out the masking technique to stretch your stamps.

Hi Friends! It's that time again! Time to get cracking on Christmas! I'm sharing this colorful holiday card featuring these cute yetis.
To create a snowy backdrop, I cut the back panel from a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock and cut it using the large slimline dies. Next, I blended seedless preserves, picked raspberry, abandoned coral and dried marigold distress oxide inks at the top of the panel. Snowflakes from the winter skies stamp set white heat embossed to create a fun snowy backdrop.
Next, I used abandoned coral, dried marigold, picked raspberry and spun sugar distress inks on another panel to create the snowy mountains. The stitched mountain die was cut from a piece of acetate to create a stencil for the mountains. I used the forest border die and white cardstock to create additional interest to the background. Next, I used a piece of pixie dust cardstock and the hillside border dies to create a sparkling snowy front panel. All the panels were glued together. I added foam tape after cutting the mountain border for added interest and dimension. Water was splatted on both panels to mimic falling snow.
Images are from the yeti or not stamp set and the ho-ho holidays set (for the presents). I colored the images using copic markers and cut them using coordinating dies. The sentiment is from Finley's ABCs and the yeti or not stamp set. The "merry" sentiment was stacked three times to create extra dimension and I added foam tape to "Christmas" and "the best is yeti to come" sentiments. The snowboarding yeti is mounted on an action wobble to add a fun interactive element to the card. Finally, the card was mounted on a slimline card base and that finishes the card!
