Holiday Card Series #15


Welcome to Day 15 of my 2018 Holiday Card Series! Today I'm sharing a card using the adorable Oh Kitty Tree stamp set by Mama Elephant. I have so many friends who are cat people that would love this card! Especially since you can really personalize it by coloring the kitties to look like their fur babies.

On today's card I decided to stick with a neutral color palette for the cats. I used a variety of warm and cool gray Copics, and let the accessories carry the punches of color. Then I trimmed it out with the matching dies.


For the background, I ink blended some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink onto a piece of white cardstock, creating a glow that would come from behind my kitty pile. Then I trimmed that down with a Mama Elephant Peek A Frame.

I popped that up with foam tape over my Doodlebug Christmas Town 6x6 patterned papers, which I adhered to my standard-sized card front. To finish off the card I used some Crystal Stickles and stamped an additional image and greeting inside with Mama Elephant Scripty Xmas.

Holiday Card Series #14


Hey friends, welcome to Day 14 of my 2018 Holiday Card Series! I had so much fun mixing and matching different Neat & Tangled sets for this card. I used Oh DeerGet YetiSanta's Wonderland, and Beary Merry and colored them all with Copic markers.


I trimmed my My Mind's Eye Winterberry patterned paper down with the Neat & Tangled Scalloped dies and popped that up with foam tape over the rest of my patterned papers, which were adhered to an A2 Standard Size card base. To finish it off, I added a few dabs of Crystal Stickles.

Lawn Fawnatics #42 - Holiday Card Series #13


Hey friends! Welcome to Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #42! Today we are celebrating the Winter Holiday Season! My card features the adorable Winter Unicorn, combined with the Black Friday exclusive A Little Sparkle. But don't worry if you missed it! It will be released at a later date.


I colored all my images with Copics, making the unicorns minty fresh with peppermint hair. I also added in a santa hat from Cheery Christmas to give the A Little Sparkle unicorn some holiday flair. Then I trimmed them out with the matching dies.


I used patterned paper to create my background and layered some Puffy Cloud Borders over top, which I trimmed in Chunky Glitter using the Glue Tube. I die cut a window out of the red and white patterned paper using the Reverse Stitched Square Windows. Then I layered that on top of a holly print. I white heat embossed a sentiment onto an Everyday Sentiment Banner and finished off the card with some Crystal Stickles for extra sparkle.


On the inside I did some fun stamping in Celery Stalk ink which you can check out in the video. Click the YouTube icon at the bottom right to watch it in HD, and don't forget to like and subscribe! This is also Day 13 of my 2018 Holiday Card Series, so I hope you enjoy!

Holiday Card Series #12


Hey friends! Welcome to Day 12 of my 2018 Holiday Card Series! Today I have a sweet little scene using the adorable Christmas Is Coming by Hello Bluebird. Aren't these critters just the cutest? In my mind, they all set out to find the perfect Christmas tree, and now they're heading back to their den to decorate it all up!

I watercolored my images using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens and die cut them with the matching dies. Then I set them aside to work on my background.


For that, I colored again with my Zigs, and blended it with a wide, flat brush and some clean, clear water. Once that was dry, I trimmed it down with the Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables. I white heat embossed a few snowflakes on the background, and clear embossed the black sentiment to give it some shine.

I added two snowdrifts using Lawn Fawn's Stitched Hillside Borders and popped my critters up with foam tape. As a final embellishment I adhered some tiny Studio Katia Iridescent Crystals to the centers of the embossed snowflakes.


I also finished off the inside with some stamping in Lawn Fawn Juice Box ink. Click the YouTube icon to watch it there in HD, and don't forget to like and subscribe! I'm so close to hitting my goal of 20K by the end of 2018! Thank you so much for all your support!

2018 Holiday Card Series #11


Hello! Welcome to Day 11 of my 2018 Holiday Card Series! Today I'm bringing you a peaceful scene created with Little Angels from MFT. Aren't they just gorgeous? 

I colored my angel and dove with Copics, choosing soft colors that would really contrast against the dark background. Also, I wanted the angel to appear as if she was almost glowing with light and love. Once I was done, I trimmed them out with the matching dies.


For my background, I sponged on distress ink in Peacock Feathers, Chipped Sapphire, and Black Soot to create a night sky, then trimmed it out with the Single Stitch Line Tag Corner Die-namics. I  adhered the outer edge and inside panel flat to the card. 

Then I took the frame and adhered some acetate to the back and popped that up with a layer of foam tape. Before I added it to the card, I put in a pile of Pretty Pink Posh Silver Star Confetti4mm Gold Sequins, and Sparkling Clear Sequins, plus Lawn Fawn Chunky Glitter for some added sparkle.



To finish off the card I added a Lawn Fawn Puffy Cloud Border, and a white heat embossed sentiment on black cardstock, trimmed out with one of the Blueprints 29 Die-namics. I glued down an extra sprinkle of sequins and stamped on the inside with Lawn Fawn Peacock ink

And while I was at it, I made two! Click the YouTube icon to watch the video in HD, and don't forget to like and subscribe! My goal was to reach 20K subscribers by the end of 2018, and I'm getting close! I'd really appreciate your support! Thanks so much for stopping by today!

25 Tags of Christmas - Lawn Fawn


Hello friends! I am so excited to be participating once again in Tracey McNeeley's 25 Days of Christmas Tags! Today's featured company is Lawn Fawn, and I thought it was a perfect opportunity to play with my Gingerbread Friends dies.

These were so much fun to play with! It kind of took me back to childhood when one of my favorite pastimes was designing and cutting out my own paper dolls. This is like the grown-up version! Lol! I had so much fun mixing up all the different accessories or "toppings." I even added little hearts to their bottoms!


I was enjoying myself so much, in fact, that I actually made a card with these guys as well, which I will post on Friday, with a video tutorial as well, so stay tuned! 

The 25 Days of Christmas Tags Event has so many wonderful sponsors! Just look at all these amazing companies that have contributed prizes. Head on over to Tracey's original blog post to check out all the info on how to enter. Who knows, maybe Christmas will come a little early this year for some of you!


Thanks so much for stopping by!
