Cool winter scene


Today I’m sharing a card featuring Neat and Tangled “Stay Cool” stamp set, which has some lovely images of cute children and critters. As I have tons of Christmas/Winter themed stamp set, I decided to make more winter cards during the season. I know everyone is making Valentines projects, but I just don’t feel in the mood yet.


I stamped the images on Bristol paper with Versafine Onyx black ink and colored everything with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. Then, I fussy cut all the images. I wanted the cuffs and the hood look fluffy, so I used a snow marker and a heat gun to get the look.


I used Lawn Fawn “Outside in stitched rectangle stackables” dies to die cut two panels: one for the background and the other to die cut two hills using Lawn Fawn “Stitched hillside borders” dies. I spritzed a mixture of Perfect Pearls and water on the hills to give them a frosty look.


Then, I blended Dried Marigold, Spun Sugar, and Dusty Concord Distress Inks on the background panel to make a beautiful winter sky. Next, I heat embossed the sentiment on white. I glued this panel to a dark blue card base and adhered the hills and the images using foam tape. Last, I added Wink of Stella on the word COOL to give it a shiny look.

I’m happy with this card. I love the look of the snow marker on the child’s coat. I hope you like it too!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!


An ice birthday card


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!!

I hope you like this card!

Thanks for stopping by! Have an ice day šŸ˜‰

Some Winter Cards


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 threeĀ strips of white cardstock and I stamped some Lawn Fawn sentiments (from “Yeti, set, go” and “Baaah Humbug” stamp sets). TheĀ sentiments in the owl card and in the fox cardĀ areĀ heat embossed with Ranger Black Sparkle embossing powder, and in the fox cardĀ I used Glossy Accents too.


For the bunny card I used a Fiskars border punch with theĀ Threading Water cartridge on the white cardstock strip andĀ stamped the sentiment with Lawn Fawn deep sea dye ink.


Finally I adhered everything together usingĀ foam tape andĀ 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?

Thaks for stopping by!
