Hello from the cold Pacific Northwest! I’m sharing a CAS winter-themed Valentine created with Lawn Fawn stamps and dies.
I stamped and colored the adorable bunnies from Snow Day and paired them with a snowy tree-lined hill cut with the Forest Border die. The background patterned paper from Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Christmas is intended for the Christmas holiday but still works for Valentine’s Day!
Hello and Happy Monday. We’re in the final countdown to Christmas, and I’m sharing a holiday tag created with Lawn Fawn stamps and dies.
This tag would be easy to make in bulk using the same design with the Stitched Mountain Borders and Stitched Circle Tags varying the critters from Toboggan Together and other sets (I really appreciate how well the Lawn Fawn critters work together!). I added texture to the tag with a Simon Says Stamp snowflake stencil.
I’m playing along with the 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist – Day 7 at Ellen Hutson which is a sketch challenge. I really liked the colors Melania used and that was my starting point.
I used the Lawn Cuts Extra Sentiment Banners to cut the red strips, which I added to a Reverse Confetti tag, cut from brushed silver cardstock. Before cutting the strips, I heat-embossed a small sentiment from the Avery Elle Snow Much Fun set. The snowflakes are a combination of die-cuts from the Lawn Cuts Mini Snowflakes set and a Paper Smooches set.
Hello. Today, I’m sharing a winter Christmas scene featuring the Elizabeth Craft Designs Holiday House.
I placed the house in a forest scene (trees created with the Memory Box Fresh Pine Forest die). I used a Simon Says Stamp stencil for the snow. I added Liquid Applique to the house trim to simulate snow, although I considered creating those pieces either from glitter paper or using Elizabeth Crafts microfine glitter. I used Elizabeth Crafts microfine glitter on the wreath. There are so many ways to cut out these pieces, and I can’t wait to try some more variations.
Hello! Today, I’m sharing a Christmas card featuring the Elizabeth Craft Designs Jolly the Mouse die set.
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.
Hello. Today, I’m sharing a winter scene featuring Memory Box and Poppystamps dies.
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.
May your day be Merry & Bright!
Supplies: Memory Box, Fresh Pine Trees, Memory Box Fresh Pine Curved Border, Memory Box Reindeer Parade, Poppystamps Santa’s Magic Sleigh
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.
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.
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).
I’m joining this week’s Merry Monday Christmas Challenge.
Hello! Today I’m sharing a CAS holiday card featuring Memory Box dies.
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).
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!
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!
