Today I have a card with a very naughty cat that reminds me of my Sakura. So when I saw this fun stamp from La Vida en Scrap, I immediately thought about making this card.
I stamped the images on Bristol paper with VersaFine onyx black ink, colored them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and fussy cut everything. The cat is from La Vida en Scrap “Dulce Navidad” stamp set, and the tree and the gifts are from Mama Elephant “Pix’s Happy Holiday” and “Reindeer Games” stamp sets, respectively. I added tons of sparkle to the tinsel with Sakura Stardust Clear Glitter pen, and some less to the ornaments, the star and the tree. For the gifts I also used a gold gel pen.
For the floor I stamped the Lawn Fawn “Woodgrain backdrops” stamp on Bristol paper using Memento peanut brittle ink. Then I colored over it with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and trim it to look like a hardwood floor. For the striped wall I did some masking with Post-it tape and blended Mama Elephant winter pigment ink on watercolor paper. Then I stamped the sentiment (I used Lawn Fawn “Harold’s ABCs” stamp set) with VersaMark ink and heat embossed it using gold and WOW Red Glitz embossing powders. I think the sentiment is perfect for this scene!
I mounted the scene using double sided tape and foam tape. I added a white cardstock stripe between the floor and the wall to make a baseboard and I also made a rug using Lawn Fawn “Small stitched ovals” dies on Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Christmas paper. Next, I adhered the scene panel to a Canson Mi-Teintes paper panel, and then attached everything to a card base. Finally, I added some Glossy Accents to the ornaments and to the star.
I think this scene is so fun! I hope you like it too!
Today I have another Christmas card featuring La Vida en Scrap stamps. The stamp I used is from a spring themed stamp set called “Faunia”, but combined with some Lawn Fawn stamps is perfect for a Christmas scene.
I stamped the bow and the mistletoe from Lawn Fawn “Baaah humbug” stamp set on Bristol paper with Memento lady bug ink and with Memento bamboo leaves ink. Then, I stamped the hares with VersaFine onyx black ink on Bristol paper masking the hearts, and masked the hares to stamp the hearts with red ink. I colored the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and fussy cut them.
I blended some Cracked Pistachio and Worn Lipstick Distress inks on a watercolor panel with very light hand to get a soft look, and then spritzed it with water to get some texture. I die cut two hills from white cardstock using Lawn Fawn “Stitched hillside borders” dies and spritzed some water mixed with Perfect Pearls for a frosty touch. It can’t be seen on the pictures, but the result is beautiful! When it was completely dry, I stamped the sentiment from Lawn Fawn “Baaah humbug” stamp set, masking the “ewe”, and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. Then I stamped the word “you” from Lawn Fawn “Believe in yourself” stamp set and heat embossed it using WOW Red Glitz embossing powder. Next, I die cut some trees using Mama Elephant “Birch trees” dies and added some shadow to the edges with ShinHan Touch Twin Brush markers.
I mounted the scene using foam tape for the hares and the mistletoe. Finally, I adhered the scene to a card base and added some Wink of Stella to the hearts and the mistletoe.
I love how this turned out. The shimmer on the snow is so pretty! And I think the scene is very sweet 🙂
I hope you like it!
I’m entering this card into the following challenges:
Finally I’ve begun my Christmas cards!! I’m not going to lie, I want to make a ton of them and I’m running out of time. Luckily, the new La Vida En Scrap “Dulce Navidad” stamp set is so beautiful that is very easy to make great Christmas cards with it.
I stamped all the images with VersaFine onyx black ink on Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Cardstock and colored them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. I added some detail with Sakura white Gelly Roll pen and Sakura Stardust Clear Glitter pen.
I stamped the sentiment Dulce Navidad (Sweet Christmas) with VersaMark ink and heat embossed it using WOW Red Glitz embossing powder. I adhered the watercolor panel to some fun foam to give some dimension and then glued that to Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Christmas paper and to a Canson Mi-Teintes paper panel. Finally I attached everything to a card base and added some Glossy Accents here and there for shiny touch.
I love these cards! They were so much fun to make!! And they are so easy to make that are perfect for mass producing if you are in a hurry.
I know is soon for Christmas cards, but I thought I should begin with them if I don’t want be in a hurry by November with tons of cards to do and a short deadline. So, I bought this adorable stamp set, Lawn Fawn Baaah Humbug. These sheep are soooo cute!
I was looking forward to making a spinner card, and the standing sheep is perfect for that.
First, I stamped the sheep twice, and the little present and the Christmas list. I colored everything with ShinHan Touch Twin brush markers and other alcohol markers from Tiger (these are not very good, but are really cheap). I added Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents to the present and the Christmas list. Then, I cut out a circle in a card base and in other piece of cardstock with Martha Stewart Circle Cutter (I don’t have a die cutting machine…).
I stamped the holly leaves and the tiny berries with Memento Bamboo Leaves and Lady Bug inks to create the pattern on the front of the card. Then, I stamped the greeting on white cardstock with Versamark ink and heat embossed it using Wow Red Glitz embossing glitter. Finally, very carefully, I put everything together.
