Happy Holidays 2018 | Cascading Snowflakes | ft. Lawn Fawn Dies and Stamps


Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you're having a great day.

I know I promised this post on Sunday, but other things happened and it didn't work out for me. But it's here today, and I'm feeling lucky I've gotten this far. My computer is being rather uncooperative and I'm starting to feel rather hostile towards it.

So today's card (and video) are a little different. There's only a little bit of stamping for the greeting and zero colouring. I wanted to share a card that has been in my head for a little while and maybe appeal to some of the people who aren't into stamping and colouring as much as I am.

I recommend watching in HD over on YouTube!


In the video you'll get to hear how this card didn't go according to plan as well as my thoughts on the Nuvo liquid glue.

I hope you like today's card (and video) and are inspired to create something of your own. If you haven't already, please follow me on the right side bar, over on Facebook and on YouTube! Drop me a line in the comments section below and let me know what you think.

All of your support and encouragement mean the world to me and I cannot thank you enough for every comment, like/thumbs up and follow you guys have given me. You are all awesome.

Happy Holidays 2018 | Using up the Scraps ft. Lawn Fawn "Winter Skies"


Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you're having a great day.

Today I want to share a card for the 2018 Happy Holidays Series using up the scraps. If you're like me, you stamp and colour more than you need, then you don't have the heart to toss the extras away, because you could probably use them on a card at some point in the future.... maybe.

This card is created completely using the scraps from that were left over from other cards. Even the background was made while I was just playing around trying to get motivated. It's been hard for me lately.


I stamped the trees and these snuggling critters from Lawn Fawn's "Winter Skies" stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on 110lb Copic-friendly cardstock and coloured them with Copic markers.

I created the background by sponging Peacock Feathers, Blueprint Sketch and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks onto Bristol Smooth cardstock, I added some Black Soot around the edges, just to darken it up a bit. To create the Northern Lights look, I sponged on Twisted Citron, then used the edge of my blending tool and swooshed it up - much like the flicking motion I use when I colour with Copic, just with the sponge.

Once I had selected all the pieces, it was just a matter of putting them together! The only new thing I did today, was stamp the greeting with VersaMark Ink and heat embossing with fine white embossing powder.

I hope you enjoyed today's card and are inspired to create something of your own. If you haven't already, please follow me on the right side bar, over on Facebook and on YouTube. Drop me a line in the comments section below and let me know what you think.

Check out the video above to see how this super cute card came together. You'll also see the extensive list of Copic markers that I used (there's a lot), how I got the texture on his hat as well as hear about my new (to me, I'm sure everyone else already knows) discovery for editing my videos!! I cannot even tell you how excited I am about this!!! - 5 exclamation marks excited. That should tells us all something right there, yeah?
