Snow globe shaped cards

Hola!!

Today I’m sharing a couple of snow globe shaped cards but instead of Christmasy, they are fall and Halloweeny ones. I used Lawn Fawn “Ready, Set, Snow” add-on dies, which are great for shaker cards!

First, let’s take a look at the fall themed shaker.

LF-SGFall03

I used Lawn Fawn and Simon Says Stamp Stamptember collaboration stamp, “Nutty or Nice”. I fell in love with this stamp set and I wanted to use it not only for Christmas cards. I colored the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and fussy cut them. By the way, the branch is from Lawn Fawn “Home Sweet Home” stamp set and the sentiment from Lawn Fawn “Ready, Set Shake” stamp set.

I used “Ready, Set, Snow” add-on dies on watercolor paper and inked the pieces with Scattered Straw and Wild Honey Distress inks. For the snow globe base, I used kraft cardstock. I stamped the “Woodgrain Backdrop” stamp with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and then used Walnut Stain Distress ink to darken the edges. Finally, I added the leaves to the shaker, for which I used Mama Elephant “Birch Trees” dies.

Now, let’s check the Halloween themed card.

LF-SGFall06

For this shaker, I used Mama Elephant “Meowlloween Extras” stamp set. I colored the images with Zigs and fussy cut everything. That was a lot of fussy cutting!! But totally worth it, because I love the candy corn as shaker element. I used Mama Elephant “Picket Fence” die on black cardstock to add a spooky fence and inked the scene with Dusty Concord and Seedless Preserves Distress inks.

I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink and heat embossed it using gold embossing powder. Last, I added all the small pieces of candy corn and closed the shaker.

Fall Scene Card

Hi!!

Today I’m sharing a card featuring some Purple Onion Designs stamps. I loooove this super cute critters designed by Stacey Yacula. This card is inspired by this one by Nichol Spohr. As soon as I saw her wonderful background I knew I had to buy the Tim Holtz Layering Woodland Stencil.

First, I stamped all the images on Bristol paper using Memento Tuxedo black ink. Next, I masked all the images and the lower part of the panel and blended Tumbled Glass and Dried Marigold Distress Inks. Then, I used the stencil to make the background, blending Evergreen Bough and Twisted Citron on top. To finish the background, I removed the mask on the lower part of the panel and masked the upper part to blend Twisted Citron for the grass.

Next, I removed the masks and color them using Faber-Castell Polychromos color pencils. As I suspected, Bristol paper is not the best choice for color pencils, but I managed to add some shading to the images and I’m quite happy with the result. For the sentiment I combined two Lawn Fawn stamp sets: “Year five” and “Gingham backdrops” and stamped it using Versafine Onyx black ink.

As a final touch I added some detail to the scarves with a white gel pen  and some Wink of Stella to all the accessories.

I definitely have to practice more on making these kind of backgrounds, because I think this stencil is great for making scenes for all seasons.

I hope you like this card. Thanks for stopping by!

Have a wonderful day!

Happy Fall Card

Hi!

Today I’m sharing a card featuring Lawn Fawn “For you, deer” stamps and dies. When I first saw this super cute stamps, I knew I had to buy them. I was looking forward to playing with them, and this weekend I had time to make a card at last.

First, I stamped the images on Bristol paper using Versafine Onyx black ink. The scarf is from Lawn Fawn “Baaah Humbug” stamp set, the beanie is from Lawn Fawn “Critters in the Artic” stamp set and the little pumpkins are from Mama Elephant “Meowlloween” stamp set. I colored the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and fussy cut everything, except the bear and the deer wich I die cut with coordinating dies. Next, I used Tim Holtz “Bricked” stencil with Fired Brick Distress Ink on a piece of Bristol paper. I love this stencil, the result is amazing. Then, I used Lawn Fawn “Wonderful window” die to die cut two windows and I trim off the shutters of one of them (which is going to be on the inside of the card).

I used my craft knife to cut a slightly smaller opening than the window outer edge on the card base, on the front panel and on a piece of Lawn Fawn pattern paper from “Beachside” paper collection. I adhered the front panel and the pattern paper panel to the card base. Next, I glued the windows to the front and to the inside of the card. I blended Tattered Rose Distress Ink on a piece of Bristol paper and used Lawn Fawn “Stitched scalloped borders” dies to make a scalloped rectangle. Then, I glued the deer and the bear and added the scarf and the beanie to them. On the inside of the card, their little paws were to far from the bottom of the card, so I made a kind of bench for them to stand up and peek through the window using Lawn Fawn “Let’s roll” stamps. Last, to make the floor I stamped Lawn Fawn “Woodgrain backdrops” stamp with Pumice Stone Distress Ink and colored over it with a light gray marker.

I stamped the sentiment from Lawn Fawn “Ready, set, shake” stamp set using Versafine Onyx black ink and heat embossed it using clear embossing powder. Then, I colored it with a gold gel pen. I used Lawn Fawn “Grassy border” on a piece of white cardstock and used alcohol markers to make the grass I glued it under the window. Then, I added the pumpkins and the pile of leaves I made using Mama Elephant “Birch trees” dies. I also added some scattered leaves on the front of the card. Last, I added some Wink of Stella to the scarf and the beanie and added some detail to the eyes and the snouts using a Sakura Glaze black pen.

It took quite a long time to make this card because I couldn’t stop adding things, but I love the result and I hope you like it too!
