Watercolored Snow Day

Hello! Today I am sharing a CAS card featuring one of the images from the Newton’s Nook Designs Snow Day stamp set. I have never before stamped any images in this set (and I purchased it in 2013!).

Newton's Nook Watercolored Snow Day

I stamped and heat-embossed the dog image on Canson Montval watercolor paper and colored it with a combination of Distress Inks and Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors.

Once the image was dry, I cut it with a die in the Stitched Square Stackables – Large set. I heat-embossed a sentiment from the Snow Globe Sentiments set and cut it with a die in the Everyday Sentiment Banners set. I used the Stitched Woodgrain Backdrop die to create the card background. Once assembled, I realized there was a critical missing detail – snowflakes! I used the Snow Caps set to die-cut snowflakes from the watercolor paper.

The 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2017 – Day 12 Lawn Fawn

Hello. Today, I am sharing a tag created for The 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2017 – Day 12 for which Lawn Fawn was the guest. All of the inspiration tags were terrific! My tag was most influenced by those shown by Elena Roussakis and Lindsey M-p.

The 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2017 - Day 12 Lawn Fawn

I stamped the Toboggan Together deer images on Arches Hot Press Watercolor Paper with VersaFine and colored them with Kuretake Gansai Tambi Dark Brown (47)Kuretake Gansai Tambi Brown (46) and Kuretake Gansai Tambi Light Brown (44).

Once dry, I cut the images with their corresponding dies. I colored Canson Watercolor Paper with Broken China Distress Oxide ink and Distress Oxide Lucky Clover ink. Once the paper was dry, I cut the tag background from the blue with the largest die in the Stitched Circle Tags set. I cut the Forest Border from the green. I cut the snow banks using the Stitched Hillside Backdrop Landscape die, which I also cut with the largest die in the Stitched Circle Tags set. I heat-embossed the Merry Messages sentiment with Geranium Red embossing powder.

I used Peppermint twine to finish off the tag. For such a simple tag, there were a lot of steps! The best part – this tag is already adorning a wrapped gift!

Lawn Fawn Holiday JOY

Hello! Today, I’m sharing a CAS holiday card showcasing the Lawn Fawn Winter Sparrows stamp set. It has been drizzling here all day and it is dark outside – a little color was in order!

Lawn Fawn Winter Sparrows

I have had this stamp for a couple of years and never used it (looks like it was released in 2013!). I colored the birds with Copic markers and cut the images with their corresponding dies. The branches are stamped with Distress Oxide Vintage Photo ink.

I used the Stitched Woodgrain backdrop for the card base and for the circle in the center. The bokeh/snow patterned paper is from an older Lawn Fawn pad. I die-cut the sentiment with Cole’s ABCs from Taylored Expressions Watermelon cardstock. (I tried a more traditional red cardstock but it just didn’t work with the brightly-colored birds.)

Lawn Fawn Die-Cut Holiday Mailbox

Hello! Today, I’m sharing a CAS holiday card showcasing the Lawn Fawn Happy Mail mailbox decorated with the Mini Wreath.

Lawn Fawn Die-Cut Holiday Mailbox

Back in July, I created a warm-weather version with the mailbox and couldn’t resist dressing it for the holidays! I was delighted to find that the Mini Wreath fit.

I used Memory Box paper for the envelope/bow, the solid blue background, and the mailbox, along with patterned paper from an older Lawn Fawn pad for the card base and the wreath. I stamped the die-cut envelope with an image in the Love Letters set.

Lawn Fawn – Deck the Halls

Hello! Today, I am sharing a CAS holiday card featuring Lawn Fawn supplies, both new and old.

Lawn Fawn Deck the Halls

I cut the Mini Wreath twice from Stampin’ Up cardstock. I heat-embossed the rectangular panel (cut from the same green cardstock) with a favorite sentiment from the Deck the Halls set. The card base is dry-embossed with a TE Brick embossing folder. Coincidentally, the Lawn Fawn blog is featuring the Mini Wreath and Large Wreath dies today.

Lawn Fawn – Thanksgiving Feast

Hello! Fall is definitely in the air here in the Pacific Northwest. The leaves are falling, and the sun is that much lower in the horizon. With the upcoming holidays in mind, I created a card with some of the new release items from Lawn Fawn. My card features their Forest Feast set.

I stamped and Copic-colored the animals and their accessories. I used a combination of inks on the background panel, which I embossed with the Stitched Woodgrain Backdrop die. Initially, I planned to use cardstock for the grass, but ended up adding Distress ink. I stamped the sentiment using my MISTI to position the stamp.

Merry Monday Challenge – Stenciled Evergreen Ornament Scene

Hello! I’m playing along with the Merry Monday Christmas Challenge Summer Link-up (the link -up runs until August 31 at noon) with another CAS card featuring the Stamper’s Anonymous Tim Holtz Woodland stencil, this time used to create a scene within the Impression Obsession Round Ornament.

Stenciled Evergreen Ornament SceneThe Tim Holtz Woodland stencil includes two evergreen trees, each with a snow overlay. I began by stenciling the trees in the background with Iced Spruce Distress Ink. I then inked the center tree with Pine Needles followed by Unicorn White Pigment ink using the snow portion of the stencil. Once dry, I cut the scene with the Impression Obsession Round Ornament. I heat-embossed the Hero Arts Christmas Messages sentiment on Stampin’ Up Tranquil Tide. To finish I added snowflakes cut with the Lawn Fawn Mini Snowflakes die.

Lawn Fawn – Happy Hello

Hello! This past week, I saw the first leaf of the season fall, and I have heard that Starbucks will soon be serving Pumpkin Spice Lattes! I figured I needed to share any remaining summer-themed cards before we move completely into the fall and holiday seasons! My card features the Lawn Fawn Mermaid for You set.

Lawn Fawn Mermaid for You

I stamped and Copic-colored the mermaid images, cutting them with their corresponding dies. I used Distress Oxide inks to stamp the underwater foliage. The background was created using the smooshing technique on Canson watercolor paper.

Lawn Fawn Summer Hello

Hello! Today, I’m sharing a CAS card featuring supplies from Lawn Fawn.

Lawn Fawn Summer Hello

The Happy Howloween set includes lots of fun images for a fall scene, but I wanted to use the dogs in a summer scene. I stamped and heat-embossed the Happy Howloween dogs on a variety of watercolor papers and started coloring them with Distress Inks; in part, I was experimenting with which colors and  watercolor papers I liked best. The ones shown were colored with Gathered Twigs on Arches (left) and Distress Oxide Vintage Photo on Strathmore (left).

Lawn Fawn Summer Hello

I colored Canson watercolor paper with Distress Inks for the tree trunk, foliage and grass borders, and once dry, I cut those pieces with the Leafy Tree Backdrop – Landscape, Meadow Borders, and Grassy Border dies. For the background, I applied Distress Oxide Broken China on Canson watercolor paper using the smooshing method. Once dry, I stamped the sentiment from the Hello Baby set with VersaFine ink. To create the frame I cut Arc Crafts White Birch with the largest die in the Stitched Square Stackables – Large set and then with a smaller square die included in a Lil’ Inker set I own. The card measures 4 1/2″ square.
