Today I’m sharing with you a birthday card I made for my dad using Lawn Fawn products. I love using winter themed stamp sets for winter birthdays, don’t you?
First, I stamped the images from “Critters in the Arctic” and “Sealed with a kiss” stamp sets on Neenah Solar white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo black ink, colored them with ShinHan Twin Touch markers and fussy cut them. I thought the two little seals could be seen as baby walruses, what do you think? By the way, I gave the critters party hats from “Lovable legends” stamp set and covered them with Glossy Accents.
For the sea, I inked a piece of Bristol paper with VersaColor mint ink and ran it through my Big Shot using “Stitched hillside borders” dies. I stamped the sentiment with the same VersaColor ink and heat embossed it with Wow! “Bluetiful” embossing powder. Next, I die cut a piece of white cardstock using “Stitched mountains borders” dies and spritzed it with some water mixed with Perfect Pearls, which gives you a super pretty sparkling snow. Last, I glued a blue cardstock panel to the card base, and added the mountains, the sea and the critters.
I know maybe this card is not the one you would make for your father. Fortunately, my dad knows how silly I am and that I love such cute images. And I must say he displays all the cards I made for him in the living room, and it makes me so so happy!!
Today I have some very simple winter cards I made using Purple Onion Designs stamps designed by Stacey Yacula. I really love these stamps, these are probably the sweetest animals I have ever seen!
I ordered these stamps back in July, and when I mounted them I just had to stamp them!! I wanted to use those images, so I made some very quick and easy cards. I picked up some Lawn Fawn patterned papers (these are from the beachside petite paper pack) and color the images using Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers to match the papers. Then I trimmed three strips of white cardstock and I stamped some Lawn Fawn sentiments (from “Yeti, set, go” and “Baaah Humbug” stamp sets). The sentiments in the owl card and in the fox card are heat embossed with Ranger Black Sparkle embossing powder, and in the fox card I used Glossy Accents too.
For the bunny card I used a Fiskars border punch with the Threading Water cartridge on the white cardstock strip and stamped the sentiment with Lawn Fawn deep sea dye ink.
Finally I adhered everything together using foam tape and double sided tape and used some Wink of Stella in the animal clothes for a shiny final touch.
Although these are very simple and kind of “trial and error” cards, in the end I like how they turned out. I think my favorite is the one with the owl. What do you think? Do you like them?
Today I have a card using Lawn Fawn “Yeti, Set, Go” stamp set. I think the Yeti is adorable and this stamp set has so many possibilities!!
I did a rather simple card. First I stamped snowflakes with Versamark ink in a lead gray piece of cardstock and heat embossed everything using WOW Clear Hologram Sparkle embossing powder. This was the first time I used this powder and I really like the shine I got, I think the effect is very beautiful!Then I cut out a circle from this front panel and from a white cardstock card base using the Martha Steward circle cutter. I stamped the “Yeti it’s cold outside” sentiment (BTW, I love this sentiment! :)) on a piece of vellum with Versamark ink and heat embossed it using Ranger Super Fine White embossing powder. I adhered the piece of vellum to the back of the panel using double sided tape.
I wanted make it look like the Yeti is seen through a snowstorm, so I inked a piece of vellum with Saded Lilac Distress ink to match the front panel color and adhered it between the card base and the front panel.I stamped the Yeti and his ear muffs with Versafine Onyx Black ink on Canson Bristol paper and colored everything with Zig Clean Color Real Brush. I added Glossy Accents on the ear muffs and the tongue, and colored the teeth with a white gel pen. I adhered this panel to the inside of the cardbase so you can see the Yeti through the circle. I was feeling like the card was unfinished, so I decided to add the “need a hug?” sentiment in the inside of the card.
