Lawn Fawn~Into the Woods

Hey everyone!  I just had a super quick card to share using one of my most loved stamp sets from Lawn Fawn, Into the Woods.  This is the stamp set that started my love fest for Lawn Fawn, and one of my all time favorites out of my whole craft room stash.  I recently picked up the Sweater Weather stamp set, and the coordinating dies and thought they would work perfectly together.  I also chose the Lawn Fawn (Large Stitched Square Stackables) for the card base and panel.  This was super quick, I colored it with Copic markers and added some card stock from the Sweater Weather paper pad from Lawn Fawn.

Wplus9~Pretty Poinsettias

Hey everyone!  Just wanted to share a card I made using the beautiful stamp set, Pretty Poinsettias from Wplus9.  This stamp set was so fun to play with!  I used a mixture of pigment inks from Mama Elephant, and Avery Elle and of course my favorite Gold Delicate pigment ink pad.  The dies for this set are also a must, and made this card come together super quick.  I used Big Scripty Holiday Greetings from Simon Says Stamp for the sentiment.

Mama Elephant~Playful Pups

Hey everyone!  Just popping in to share my latest card, from Mama Elephant.  I loved the set Playful Pups, and those of you who watched my haul won't be surprised to see what I did, lol!  I combined it with Cozy Christmas and Baaah Humbug from Lawn Fawn.  I also made it into a shaker card.  I think it turned out super cute!  I hope you guys like it, too!

Paper Smooches~There's Snow One Like You

Hey everyone!  I've been playing all month, enjoying my Paper Smooches goodies!  I have one last card to share today.  I returned to my comfort zone, of clean and simple.  I used one of my very favorite stamp sets, Chilly Chums...Oh, how I love this cute little fox!  I colored the fox using warm grey Copic markers, and added a hat from Hat Dies.  I used some Sweet Lilac pigment ink from Mama Elephant and then created my snow-fest background using the Large Snowflakes Dies.  I offset each snowflake, so some aqua glitter could peek through.  Then I added a thin frame to finish off my card.  This was super easy to make, and so much fun!  Of course, I can't get enough of that cute little fox!

I am playing along with the Anything Goes Paper Smooches Spark Challenge!  You should come play too!

Paper Smooches~Deer in the forest

Hey everyone!  I have another card to share from Paper Smooches!  For my card I'm sharing today, I used the beautiful A Holy Holiday stamp set.  I stamped the deer in both gold and silver pigment ink, to get a look resembling mercury glass.  Then I masked the deer off and added some masks I made using Birch Trees Dies~Love them!  I masked off the trees and blended some pigment inks to create a winter background.  Then I removed one layer of the birch tree dies to add some black soot ink lightly, to make the birch trees background.  I added the sentiment from A Blessed Christmas and added a small frame popped up a bit.  I love how this turned out, so elegant...without being fussy!

Paper Smooches~Love from our home to yours

Hey everyone!  I've been playing with my Paper Smooches stash, and having sooo much fun!  For today's card, I wanted to make the cute Fox and Penguin (Chilly Chums) peeking through a window.  So I used the Polaroid Dies to make a quick window.  I colored my animals with Copics and had to used the Hats Dies, too cute for words!  I used Bitty Bungalows for the sentiment, and added Holly Dies for a pop of color.  The shocker is, I used patterned paper!  Even though I really prefer clean and simple, I broke out of my little safe zone of white, lol!  The woodgrain paper was perfect, I think!

Paper Smooches~Three Kings

Hey everyone!  I wanted to share some of my Paper Smooches love fest today!  I having been making cards all month, and just now getting around to posting them.  I knew when I ordered Zoo Crew stamp set months ago, I wanted to use the Camels to represent the three wise men.  Luckily, I found a crown in the A Little Lovin' set to make my plan work, lol.  I really prefer clean and simple designs, so I have been trying to branch out a little and create more cards with backgrounds and even pattern paper...I do love a challenge!  I masked off the Camels, crowns and palm trees (from Get Outta Town) and used distress inks to create the sand and sky.  I colored my images with Copic markers and then used my gold wink of stella marker for the crowns.  I inset the town of Bethlehem (A Blessed Christmas) to make it appear to be in the distance.  This card was so fun to make!

Greeting Fawn~Let it Snow

Hey everyone!  I just wanted to share my latest card I made using the stamp set, Let it Snow from The Greeting Farm.  I'm so happy I picked up this set, super cute!  I colored up the Polar bear with Copic markers and added some Wink of Stella.  I added some snowflakes from my Paper Smooches snowflakes dies, and hearts.  It's a really simple card, but I think it turned out pretty cute!

Booyah Spinner Card~Lawn Fawn

Hey everyone!  I have been busy playing with my Lawn Fawn stash, and had to play with the Booyah stamp set...yet again!  So stinkin cute!  I attempted to make my first spinner card, though I really had no idea what I was doing, lol.  Next time, I will make the string tighter somehow, but I still think it turned out cute,,,and each of the characters spin.  My kiddos got a big kick out of it!  The only tricky part was making a mirror image of the ghost, so his body and hat would be facing the right way for his back.  I loved how this turned out, it was so fun to try something new.  Also I used the wave border dies to create the scallop border, kind of a spooky scallop border.  I am entering this in the Lawnscaping Challenge, you should come play along too!

Lawn Fawn~Tobagan Together

Hey Everyone!  I've been playing with my Lawn Fawn goodies this month, and finally getting a chance to share them.  I love the new Tobaggan Together stamp set, one of my favorites from the new release!  I masked off the sled to make a bit longer, so it could pull lots of presents and toys.  I love sets like this, that you can use a dozen different ways!  Other than masking, this card was super quick and easy to make.  I used Copic markers to color the images, and pigment inks to create the winter background. 

Stamp sets used:

Lawn Fawn: Winter Scripty Sayings, Toboggan Together, Baaah Humbug, Pa-Rum-Pa-Pum-Pum

Mama Elephant~Three Amigos in the Forest

Hey everyone!  Just wanted to share my latest Mama Elephant card I made.  I wanted to make a Halloween card, but I didn't have any Halloween stamps from Mama Elephant.  But, I thought it would be cute to make a forest with a sunset.  This was actually the first card I made this week, and got my creative juices flowing, lol!  So, I picked through my Mama Elephant stash and put several together to make this card.  I also used Mama Elephant pigment inks, they blended so smoothly...actually easier than distress inks for me.  I stamped the moon in Sunshine, but then went over it with my Wink of Stella which changed the color.  Then I took my Wink of Stella over the trees and couldn't resist dotting stars in the sky...Here is my card:

Supplies used:

Stamps:  Mama Elephant~Three Amigos, Winter Wonderland, Woodland Gifts, Confetti

Inks:  Memento Tuxedo Black, VersaFine, Mama Elephants Pigment Inks (Orangeade, Plumberry, Sunshine)
