2019 Happy Holidays Card Series | Day 3 | Holly Jelly Days


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

Every year there is something that all the kids want. Something that's all the rage. Something they'll just "die" without. This card is inspired by books that my daughter and her cousins are just "all about"; you'll forgive me if my lingo isn't down with the generation LOL. The things we do for our kids, right?


The images from Lawn Fawn are stamped with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink on 110lb Copic-friendly cardstock and coloured with Copic markers.

I masked off the images and used Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink along with my Dollar Store blending brush, to create a soft aura around the images. Once the background was completely dry, I used the Lawn Fawndamentals Liquid Stardust to create some shiny splatter.

I removed the masks and then heat embossed the greeting from the same same narwhal stamp set with clear embossing powder over VersaFine Onyx Black ink.

I hope you like 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.

2019 Happy Holidays Card Series | Day 2 | Frosty Merry Christmas


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

It's no surprise that I don't like winter. This is, what, our sixth? no, our fifth winter season together; and every year we discuss how much I hate winter and how I don't like the snow, or the cold or the grey or the anything that has to do with anything winter related.

But let's be real for a minute. Hating winter and being cold is one thing, SAD or Seasonal Affective Disorder is a real thing and it's scary. It's waking up to see a grey sky with a little bit of snow on the ground and staring out the window and crying for an hour. It's struggling to do anything because the blanket of snow on the ground literally feels as though it is smothering you, or in this case, me. It's your partner worrying about you because the forecast looks bad. It's more than some seasonal blues, it's a crushing weight that is incredibly lonely.

Find something that you love. Find help, it's a real thing and it's a terrible thing to go through alone.

Now that that's out of the way, lets get back to the card. The thing that I love, the thing helps me get through the winter.


The images from Lawn Fawn's Frosty Fairy Friends are stamped with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink on 110lb Copic-friendly cardstock and coloured with Copic markers.

I then masked the images and used Shaded Lilac and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink for the background sky. I didn't intend for these to be this year's winter colours, but as I worked through this year's series it turned out that purple and blue were where it's at.

2019 Happy Holiday Card Series | Day 1 | Warmest Wishes


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

Welcome to the 2019 Happy Holiday Card series! While this may be shocking for a few of you, I am certain that most of you will not be surprised to learn that the vast majority of these cards will be featuring Lawn Fawn. Not all of them. There are a couple that feature other brands, but lets all be real here, I'm a Lawn Fawn kinda gal. I'm not affiliated, I just love them.

So lets dive right in!


This card was the result of playing around with some new paints. I recently picked up the 48 pan set of Meeden watercolours (there will be more about these in a later post, I haven't decided where I stand on them yet).

I used a snowflake background stamp on a piece of Canson XL 140lb cold press watercolour paper and heat embossed with pearl embossing powder.

As always, the images are stamped with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink on 110lb Copic-friendly paper then coloured with Copic markers.

I wanted to convey the warmth of a peppermint hot chocolate on a cold wintery day.
