Weekly Christmas Card with Lawn Fawn Home for the Holidays

Well it's the end of another week and 
so here is My Christmas Card for this week.

I used  Lawn Fawn's 
Home for the Holidays Stamp, Slide on Over die set, 
Stitched Mountain borders, Stitched Hillside die & Snowy Backdrop.

This is the first slider card I made:

To make it slide nice I used the EK success powder tool - 
which smells like baby powder!

I love dimension on cards, it seams to just make 
the card more interesting.
The snow, some trees and the hillside are all set at different heights.
The inside of the card. I like a little detail inside.

Inks used to make the sky.

I really like the way this turned out,
the picture just isn't as good as real life.

Hope you enjoyed my card - 
its just a fun little change for myself.

we all have so many great holiday stamps etc,
its a nice way to use them all year long.

Little Boy Birthday Cardh

A little while ago, 
Alex had friend over and wanted to know all about
what I was doing in my craft room and what 
all of the tools where.

When a young person takes an interest, 
I am all in.
His little brother was having his second birthday 
later that day, so I helped him make a card.

We used the mama Elephant Lunar Animals
with Lawn fawn Say Cheese Polaroid frame,
and Lawn Fawn Elphie Selfie Balloon stamp & die.
We also used versamark to make stars in the background
with glitter embossing powder.

We tied the string around the balloons to hide the string extensions,
ans add dimension to the card.
I also showed Ben how you can add more 
dimension using pop dots to 
lift the focus of your card.

When he got home, 
his mom reported that he explained all of the steps and 
tools he used to make the card.

He was very happy with the finished product.

MFT You Gnome Me & Magic Colour Slide

Last week was my Gramma's birthday .

She loves Gardening & has a lot of 
decor in her flower beds, 
she also has 2 gnomes on her end table.

So making a garden Gnome card seemed like a great Idea.
I used the MFT BB You Gnome Me stamp set.

I really wanted to use the Lawn Fawn Magic colour die as well.

Here it is open.
I forgot to take a photo of the inside
before I wrote in it.

Here is the insert as I coloured it.

Here it is inserted into the slide pocket.

I need to work on this style again soon, it is super fun.  

I think it will make a great kids card!

Christmas Card for the Week

Here is my Christmas Card for the week - 
That was close trying to get it in this week!!

I used Lawn Fawn Christmas Dreams
& Lawn Fawn Shadow Box Die.

 I used K&Company Paper

I thought that the patchwork paper
would be super cute, but
When finished I think it was a bit busy,
next time I will use more plain paper.

 The tree and fireplace are on the second tab
in behind the puppy tab.

 When you close the card you can see the fire in the fireplace,
and the stockings hung on the mantel.

 Her is the top, The tree is taller than the card so it pops out.

You can see it from the front, and from the back.

Here is the top of the tree popping out from the  card.

When I fold down the puppy's dream
you can see the fireplace and details.

 Here you can see the puppy dream attached
to a strip of acetate.
I also used my new black glaze pen on his nose.

Hope you all enjoyed my weekly Christmas card!!

Valentines For Friends

I love to get together with my friends and scrapbook - 
there are only a few Crop around where I live- 
Unfortunately I have missed the last 2
as I have been away with the kids!

This past Saturday was the Craft for Heart in our area.
It has always been known as Crop for Heart but with 
numbers dwindling at the even - 
they thought they may try something new.
All crafters could bring their projects.

Even though I wasn't there,
I sent Valentines for my Friends.

They were so much fun, 
I used the Lawn Fawn Box Card & Shadow Box card Dies.
This will be some of my favorite to play with for along time.

Here is the Shadow box card, 
I used the Stinkin' Cute Lawn Fawn Set inside & 
Paper is K&Company.

This is the top view of the card,
you can see the banner at the back, 
and the 2 hillsides staggered in the card.

These super cute trees come with the Shadow box die.

 I coloured most of the skunks like the above photo
but saw one on Pinterest like the one below, 
so I thought I would try it!

Here is the second style, The Pop-Up box card.
The stamp set on this card id the lawn Fawn Elphie Selfie,
I did use another bird from another set, 
sorry not sure which one as I have Lawn Fawn 
pieces coloured & ready to go on my desk.
I love how they co-ordinate, so to get the most from my sets, 
I have several ready to go so I can play with the set up of all of my cards.
Paper is K&Company.

This is the card closed, as you see they fold flat for envelopes, 
and can pop open as soon as the card is out.

Top view of the closed card.

I took a few pictures of the process- 
something I am going to try to do more of this year.

Here is the stamp set & the coloured pieces ready for assembly.
I have 4 of these clear trays on my desk, stacked with coloured 
images ready to make cards, or add to cards.
That way I can sit & colour or sit & assemble / create!

Here is the card float open, 
I attached the hills to one side, then the other.
Picture two is the hills attached to the left side with 
the elements on them, no decorative embellishments yet.

 As you can see i like to assemble all the elements ( trees etc) first, 
then I start the construction of all the cards once I have all of the items ready.
I find I get more done this way.
Second picture is the card with all of the decorative pieces added.

If you havent played with these dies - put it on your list...
They are so much fun!

We went to visit over the week-end and 
I brought the Marlene & Chicky 
valentine's for their grand kids.  

I love making quick little valentines.

Here they are, I used all Lawn Fawn 
small stamp sets for all of these.


Ok so they were not all so fast, 
but I really to make backgrounds.
