Get Cracking on Christmas: Very Merry Ornament

Hello! It's the third Thursday of the month, time for another Get Cracking on Christmas Challenge.  If you don't already know from following these posts, this idea started with my friends  Jenn & Cheiron because we realized we have all these fun Christmas products and never seem to find the time to use them when the holidays come around.  So we have challenged ourselves to make one holiday card a month this year and show those goodies some love. 


Today I have a quick and easy card that I made in a very short time.  I bought this very cool ornament die last year and never ended up using it. I cut it from some pearly cream cardstock then layered pixie dust glitter behind it so that it peeks through the openings in the ornament's design.  I used silver glitter for the top and then layered a bright red glitter die cut "merry" across the center.


I really wanted the sentiment to stand out so I kept this nice and clean by mounting the ornament on a white woodgrain card base and added a few clear sequins around it.

Be sure to stop by Jenn blog for more holiday inspiration (Cheiron is, unfortunately, unable to join us this month) and if you want to join us in our monthly holiday challenge all you have to do is create a holiday card or project and post it to your blog or social media such as Instagram, Facebook or Twitter using the hashtag #getcrackingonchristmas

Thanks for stopping by today!

Lawn Fawn September Inspiration Week: Say What?

It's the final day of Lawn Fawn inspiration week and today we are featuring the new Say What? stamp set.  This set is designed to create some cute fun tags and has a coordinating tag die set.  But today I have a card using the little images without the tags.


I used the pretty rainbow stripe paper to cover my card base.  Then I embossed the snowfall backdrop onto vellum using a rubber embossing mat in my die cutting machine.  I thought this gave the look of party confetti. I cut the vellum rectangle slightly smaller with a stitched rectangle die.


I used the happy birthday line border die cut from black cardstock for a bold sentiment to underline my little animals. I added some glue to some of the snowfall dots and added chunky glitter to add to the confetti effect.  I added "a gift for you" to the front because inside there is a slot to add in a gift card.


Be sure to check out the Lawn Fawn blog for more Say What? projects and you can check out how this card came together as part of the Say What? intro video.

Lawn Fawn September Inspiration Week: Winter Skies

Hello! I'm back with another post for Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week.  Today we are featuring Winter Skies. I have two cards to share today.


My first card is a double slider card with an ink blending top panel and a sentiment on the bottom.


I blended the sky of the outside pocket and the top panel with distress inks and added some pearl and gold metallic watercolor flecks.  I like how Santa pops out of the top and the sentiment pops out of the bottom. I used pixie dust glitter paper for the snowy ground.


I put the whole pocket onto a white woodgrain cardstock stamped with snowflakes stamped in Moonstone ink.


This card was inspired by a card by Elise.  I liked her mountains in the background and the little critters looking up at the sky. I wanted to create a non-holiday card, however, so my card is just for winter.  I colored the sky with tumbled glass and broken china distress ink and the mountains with Dusty Concord and shaded lilac inks.  As you can see I'm really into the metallic splatters, so I added pearl splatters to look like snow.


I pulled in the little house and moon from Winter Village to help set my scene.  And continued the sparkle with pixie dust glitter cardstock for the snowy hills and snow-capped mountains.

Lawn Fawn September Inspiration Week: Square Reveal Wheel Add-On + Snowflake Reveal Wheel Add-On

Hello! Today for Lawn Fawn Inspiration week we are featuring the new Square Reveal Wheel Add-On as well as the new snowflake reveal wheel opening.


The square reveal wheel add-on die set has two new openings you can use. I used the scalloped frame for my fall themed card inspired by Megan's card.


I used the blue Gotta Have Gingham for my background and green Knit Picky Fall paper for the grass.  I use the owls from So Owlsome along with the basket of apples from Thanks a Bushel (one of my favorite sets).


The sentiments are from the Reveal Wheel Holiday Sentiments.  You can see how this card came together in the Square Reveal Wheel intro video.


My next two cards feature an alcohol ink color changing reveal wheel.  The first is simple with a white woodgrain background and white die cut snowflakes.


I paired this white on white panel with the dark blue plaid from Perfectly Plaid Chill and used Rose Gold embossing on the sentiment.  I added small flecks of gold paint to the background for some added shine.


My second alcohol ink reveal wheel is inspired by a card by Kay.


I paired the snowflake reveal wheel cut out with stamps from Ready, Set, Snow to create this small scene.  I added texture embossing powder to the trees for a snowy look and used fairy dust glitter cardstock for the snowflake frame.


You can see just how I created this card as part of the Reveal Wheel Snowflake Add-On intro Video.  Be sure to visit the Lawn Fawn blog for more inspiration with these new fun Reveal Wheel products.
