Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you're having a great day.
I've mentioned previously that it was Lawn Fawn that started me out making cards. Not directly, of course, I'm sure they have no idea who I am. But it was a tiny fox on Pinterest and that was the beginning for me.
This little fox was the start of an amazing journey into paper-crafting and it has boomed for me since then. Lawn Fawn remains my number one stash item, and you may have noticed from the cards in this year's Holiday Series that they are generally my first choice when it comes to crafting.
And we all have this sweet little fox to thank.
To begin, I stamped the fox from Lawn Fawn's "Into the Woods" stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on 110lb Copic-friendly cardstock. I then masked him off and stamped the wood log using CTMH's Saddle ink.
I masked off the log and used Broken China Distress ink to create a halo around him. I then mixed Mother of Pearl Structure Paste with Tumbled Glass Distress ink to create a shimmering soft blue. I laid down my snowflake stencil by Hot Off the Press and put my paste through that.
Any time you are using embossing paste always be sure to clean your tools quickly. I use warm soapy water and a stiff nail brush to ensure I get it all out of the stencil, then hang the stencil to dry.
I removed the masks and coloured my fox with Copic markers. Once the structure paste had dried a bit, I prepped the top corner with my powder tool and stamped the greeting from CTMH's "Sending Smiles" with VersaMark embossing ink and heat embossed with silver powder.
I set the panel aside to dry completely and sponged Broken China Distress Oxide Ink around the edges of my standard A2 sized card base. Once the ink had dried I adhered the panel to the front.
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 or over on Facebook, so you don't miss any future posts. Drop me a line in the comments section below and let me know what you think.
