Lawn Fawn's Fawny Holiday Week 2017 - Day 5

hello!!!
I'm helping to wrap up another incredible, inspiring, amazing week of Lawn Fawn's Fawny Holiday Week!



I just LOOOOVE this time of year and making holiday cards with Lawn Fawn is SO FUN and so easy! ha!

this cute little guy from Yeti, Set, Go is probably one of my favorite images!! just look how happy he is!!



I stamped and colored the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers! I used part of a circle die to cut the shape out of white cardstock, then backed with some watercolor I did! LOOOOOVE those bright yellows and pinks for a winter sky!!




I added my trees along the 'horizon' and then splattered everything with white acrylic paint so it would look like snow! love how this card came out!

sending peace and joy!

hello and happy day!
it's a busy week on my blog, and today is no different!
I've got this cute, serene card up on the Newton's Nook Designs blog today!


I really LOVE how this came out! and I'm totally not into mass producing holiday cards, but I'm seriously tempted with this one! it's just SO pretty!

I started by doing the 'rock and roll technique' with my Distress Oxide inks in Cracked Pistachio and Twisted Citron with the sweet, watercolor-vibey trees from Whispering Pines! *swoon* so pretty!
then I added some blues to the 'sky' by blending some Peacock Feathers and Tumbled Glass Distress ink right on top! SO pretty! I finished the background by flicking on some watered down white acrylic paint for the 'snow'!


I colored the fox from Fox Hollow with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers, then fussy cut him out and popped him up over the scene! 
the sentiment is from the new Sentiments of the Season set, which I stamped in a rich black!
I finished off the card with some light blue sequins and then added it to the card front! 

I hope this inspired you to combine old and new sets for a super new look on your cards! and don't forget to head over to the Newton's Nook Designs blog for all of the latest and greatest information!
enjoy!

hello!!!
it's another day, and another post for Lawn Fawn's Fawny Holiday Week! yahoo!



I just LOOOOVE this time of year and making holiday cards with Lawn Fawn is SO FUN and so easy! ha!
I couldn't let this celebration go by without coloring up the adorable otter from the mini Winter Otter set! 


I stamped and colored this little guy in with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers! LOVE how cute he is holding that candy cane! 
I created the background by using some scraps from die cutting with the Stitched Scalloped Borders die as masks and then blending with Distress Inks in Peacock Feathers and Blueprint Sketch! LOVE that ocean!



I heat embossed the sentiment in white onto black cardstock and then fussy cut out the 'otterly' part for a little extra interest! I finished it off with some sequins!

Lawn Fawn's Fawny Holiday Week 2017 - Day 2

good morning!
today is day 2 of Lawn Fawn's Fawny Holiday Week



I just LOOOOVE this time of year and making holiday cards with Lawn Fawn is SO FUN and so easy! ha!
this time, I'm up on the Lawn Fawn blog with a scrapbook layout featuring the Merry Messages stamp set and the Stitched Snowflakes dies!


I heat embossed the phrases in white, onto strips of black cardstock, then attached them to my layout around my photos! i just LOVE those pops of black!



oh, and you may have noticed I did LOTS of die cutting! ha! I watercolored in rainbow colors onto cardstock, then die cut out lots and lots of those snowflakes! then I added  them to my layout in a kind of loose snowflake shape around the photo!! so fun!



I also stamped some of those sparkly star images around the snowflake die cuts! 



I hope this layout inspires you to document some of your favorite holiday memories! I just LOVE this photo of my little Menn on Christmas morning...and did you see our cat Phoenix in the background?! it looks like he's smiling big, too!! but he's really chomping on the tree branch in the background of the photo!! I laughed SO HARD when I saw that in the picture!! ha!
