All I Want for Christmas is You

Hi!!

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!

Pawsome Nurse

Hola!!

Today I have a very simple card I made combining Simon Says Stamps and Lawn Fawn stamps. I love mixing stamps to create new images, and I think it is a great way to stretch our stamps.

To make this super cute nurse dog, I stamped the Simon Says Stamp “You are pawsome” doggie on Bristol paper with Memento tuxedo black ink and then I added the nurse hat from Lawn Fawn “Get well soon” bird stamp and colored the image with alcohol markers. Then I stamped the band aid with VersaFine onyx black ink and colored it with Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens.

For the background panel, I stamped one of the Lawn Fawn “Gingham backdrops” stamps on red cardstock using Memento tuxedo black ink. Then, I trimmed a piece of kraft cardstock and stamped the sentiment with VersaMark ink and heat embossed it using white embossing powder.

Finally, I adhered everything together using double sided tape, and foam tape for the images.

I hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by!

Home Sweet Home

Hi everyone!

Today I’m sharing with you a very simple card I made for a family who is moving to a new home. They are a really nice young couple with three beautiful children. I wanted to make them a card to celebrate that they finally are in their new home.

I began stamping the house  from Lawn Fawn “Home sweet home” stamp set and the trees from Lawn Fawn “Yeti, set, go” stamp set on Bristol paper with VersaFine onyx black ink and colored these images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens. For the smoke, I stamped an image from Lawn Fawn “Science of Love” stamp set with Memento lady bug ink. Then, I stamped randomely all the houses using Mama Elephant winter ink. I love this ink for making soft patern backgrounds!

I trimmed the panel and used Lawn Fawn “Stitched borders” dies on both pieces. I stamped the sentiment on a lead gray panel with VersaMark ink and heat embossed it using white embossing powder. Finally, I adhered the front panel to the gray panel using foam tape, and then adhered everything to a card base. For a shiny final touch I glued some sequins from Lucy’s Things “Winter mint sparkly shaker selection” and added some Wink of Stella to the trees and some Glossy Accents to the window.

I wish they are happy in their new home and I’m glad we still live in the same neighborhood!
