Lawn Fawn | Little Late Christmas Card


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

It's been a bit, I know. I've been in more of a "make the cards" than I have I been in a "post all the cards" mode. I had to post this last Christmas card, because it's super cute, and I had to wait until the person I gave it to had received it. To be fair, she received it a bit ago... but, like I said I've been making more than posting.


To begin, I stamped the hat from "Hat's Off to You", then masked that off and stamped the shark from "Duh-Nuh" and stamped him off as well. The string came from the "Toboggan Together" set and the little fish came from "Fintastic Friends". All the images are stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I stamped off the remaining images as well as the edges of the panel.

I used Broken China, Salty Ocean and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks to create my background. I then placed my wave stencil down, and used a glitter gelly roll pen to trace the curves and get some shimmer. With the stencil in place I pressed a damp paper towel over top of the panel to lift some of the ink.

Once the panel was completely dry, I removed the masks and coloured all the images with Copic markers. I added some liquid adhesive to the trim and the pom-pom of the hat and dipped it in Lawn Fawn's fine prisma glitter.

I popped the panel up on some foam tape and adhered it to a piece of patterned paper then mounted the whole lot to the front of a standard A2 sized card base.

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.

Happy Holidays 2018 | ft. Simon Says Stamp "Sketched Flowers" and Lawn Fawn's Gold Embossing Powder


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

I filmed today's card (and video) a couple of weeks ago, then I got super sick. Almost like the beginning of the school year sick, but this is the one that hits right before the holidays when you just don't have time to actually be sick. Lemme tell y'all, it's been a nightmare.

But I'm finally getting this up to you, just in time for the holidays! Yay!!!

I recommend watching in HD over on YouTube!

I apologize for the scratchy voice and scattered thoughts, I've been on some sinus medication. But today was the only day where I've had a bit of quiet time so today was the day that I had to do the voiceover. 


Check out the video above for a list of the Copic markers I used on this card as well as a warning about what happens if your Perfect Pearls aren't perfectly dry before you continue with the card.

I cannot tell you how much every "like", follow, thumbs up and comment means to me. I love being a part of this community and hearing from all of you is a huge part of that! I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and a super Crafty New Year!!

This card is for:

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.
