Christmas Mice

Hello! Today, I’m sharing a Christmas card featuring the Elizabeth Craft Designs  Jolly the Mouse die set.

Christmas Mice

I die cut and assembled three mice, decorating them with items from the Props 5 set (Santa hat, candy cane, beard, moustache, glasses). For the pink used on their feet, hands, ears and noses, I colored cardstock with Taylored Expressions Cupcake ink to get just the right shade.

I used the Stitched Hillside Border set to create layers and kept building until all three mice had a place on the card. The card is just a little bit taller than 5 1/2 inches. The patterned paper background is from American Crafts.

I added a long sentiment from the Merry Messages set.

Fresh Snow in the Woods

Hello. Today, I’m sharing a winter scene featuring Memory Box and Poppystamps dies.

Die-Cut Christmas Sleigh

I took some artistic license with the Reindeer Parade die-cut – I’m imagining the reindeer flying off, leaving the sleigh in the woods! The heat-embossed sentiment is from Lawn Fawn Merry Messages – one of my favorite sets of the season.

Snow Day

Hello! Today’s I’m sharing a CAS, winter-themed card. Here in the Pacific Northwest, we’ve just had our first significant snowfall of the season in the mountain areas.

CAS Christmas Die-Cut Card

I rummaged through my dies to find a wreath that would work with the Small Winter Sled finding the one in the Holiday Arbor Accessories set to fit well. I heat-embossed the sentiment from Snow Day with silver embossing powder and cut the white cardstock with one of the dies in the Stitched Hillside Border set. The patterned papers are from a Lawn Fawn pad purchased several Christmases ago.

Here Comes Santa Paws

Hello! Today, I’m sharing a card showcasing the Lawn Fawn Happy Howlidays stamp set, which was a Simon Says Stamp set for their Stamptember event. I paired the Copic-colored dogs with two Lawn Fawn die sets.

I cut the Little Town Border from white cardstock and backed the openings with yellow cardstock. I cut the Stitched Mountain Borders from the Earl Grey cardstock. I used a Simon Says Stamp stencil to create the snowflakes. It took me a few minutes to gather my embossing paste and related supplies, but I’m glad I did, as the backgroud needed some texture (and I plan to do more stenciling this season).

Magical Holiday Season

Hello!  Today I’m sharing a CAS holiday card featuring Memory Box dies.

Magical Holiday

This card was easy to put together! I cut a dark blue cardstock panel with the Memory Box Snowdrift Breeze die to create the background. I used the same die to cut white cardstock snowflakes that I placed back into the dark blue panel. I cut the front part of the scene with the Memory Box Horse Sleigh Landscape die. The houses and trees were cut with the Memory Box Country Landscape die from matte silver cardstock. The entire scene was adhered together and taped on to a white cardstock base.

I heat-embossed the Lawn Fawn Merry Messages sentiment (this is a set I’ll be reaching for a lot this season!) on red cardstock to add a little punch to the scene. I used the Lawn Cuts Everyday Sentiment Banners die set to cut the sentiment (trimming off the ends).

Warm Winter Wishes: Merry Monday Challenge

Merry Monday Challenge #214

I’m playing along with Merry Monday #214 whose theme this week is “Warm Winter Wishes.” The temps have turned chilly here in the PNW on this first day of fall, making it easy to think about cozy things!

Merry Monday #214

My card showcases the My Favorite Things Warm & Fuzzy die set which I purchased after the holiday season last year. Kraft and red is one of my favorite Christmas color schemes and feels cozy to me! I used the We R Memory Keepers Wood Grain embossing folder whose larger size allowed me to dry emboss with a horizontal wood grain. I’ve yet to get the Lawn Fawn Argyle Backdrops set put away since I keep using the same sentiment!

Lawn Fawn Fall Scene

Happy Monday! It’s a crisp fall-like day here in the Pacific Northwest. These puppies from Lawn Fawn’s Happy Howloween set are irresistible!

Happy Howloween

I Copic-colored the dogs and cut them with their corresponding dies adding them to a scene created with a variety of Lawn Fawn die cuts. I pulled the sentiment from Argyle Backdrops. Keep Cozy!

No Tricks, Just Treats – Lawn Fawn Halloween

Hello! Today I’m sharing a Halloween card created with Lawn Fawn stamps and dies.

Lawn Fawn Halloween

I Copic-colored the adorable raccoon from Lawn Fawn Holiday Party Animal and placed him in a scene created with the just-released Stitched Tree Borders. I added a sentiment from Happy Howloween which I cut with one of the dies in the Everyday Sentiment Banners set.

Lawn Fawn Owl Always Love You

Hello! Late August signals back-to-school, and I’ve been seeing lots of posts about first days of school and sons and daughters headed to college. Our youngest son left for college this time of year five years ago (time really doesn’t fly!). He’s finished with college now, so we don’t have any back-to-schoolers in the house. That doesn’t mean I can’t remember what those transitions felt like, and with that type of transition in mind, I created this card with Lawn Fawn stamps and dies.

 

Lawn Fawn Owl Always Love You

The Mom + Me set was released for Mother’s Day; I repurposed the owl with her owlet as a card for a son or daughter (perfect, really, for just about any time!). I kept the colors gender neutral (and sort of outdoorsy).

Lawn Fawn Pacific Northwest Hello

Hello! Today I’m sharing a card crafted with Lawn Fawn stamps and dies. I imagined a scene in the Pacific Northwest while crafting the card.

I watched Kelly Marie’s intro video for the Dad + Me set to get ideas for Copic coloring the bears (I will now watch her coloring for every Lawn Fawn stamp, as it makes the process so much easier!). I used Taylored Expressions Cookie Monster ink for the lake.

Lawn Fawn PNW Hello

I just love that bucket hat! My husband has a similar one (although it’s not teal :-)).
