Get Cracking On Christmas: So Many Snowmen

Hello! It is the third Thursday of the month and that means is time for another Get Cracking on Christmas project!  Get Cracking on Christmas is a challenge started with my friends Jenn & Cherion to challenge ourselves to create holiday cards at least once a month all year long and show those holiday stamps some love. So many times I have purchased cute holiday stamps and not had the time to use them when the holidays come around.


This month I made a super quick card by using the So Many Snomen stamp set from Mama Elephant.  This was perfect for a quick card because the image covers the whole bottom of the card and all I had to do was add the sentiment above.


I kept my coloring very simple and added slight shading by a pale grey for shadows on the snowmen.  I used the blue diagonal Gotta Have Gingham paper for the background to add a little color but keep the snowmen as the focus.

Be sure to visit both Jenn & Cherion to see their holiday creations and please join us by making holiday cards and sharing them on your blog or social media using the hashtag #getcrackingonchristmas.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Lawn Fawn June Inspiration Week: How You Bean? Stars Add-on

Hello! I'm back today for another day of Lawn Fawn Inspiration week. Today we are featuring the newest add-on for How you Bean? I love the How You Bean? Stars Add-on set, but then again I have always been a fan of stars.


I was inspired by one of my favorite Pixar shorts, La Luna.  If you have not seen this little film it is a short about a boy who goes with his father and grandfather on a night boat ride to go and sweep fallen stars from the moon's surface.  I made a big pile of stars by masking and white embossing the cluster of stars onto yellow Watercolor Wishes paper and cutting out the top edge.


I created the background by water coloring layers of distress ink and then blending the edges once it was dry.  I also added flecks of gold metallic watercolor for stars.  The sentiment is white embossed on strips of black cardstock and I popped it and the little astronaut up with foam adhesive.

Be sure to stop by the Lawn Fawn blog for more projects.  Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Lawn Fawn June Inspiration Week: Outside-In Stitched Cloud Stackables

Hello! Today Lawn Fawn inspiration week contiunes with the Outside-In Stitched Cloud Stackables and Stitched Cloud Frames.


I used the largest of the Outside-In Stitched cloud Stackables to create a shaped card with a felt front. I cut two pieces of white cardstock and scored the top of the back one and glued it along the flap to create the card.  I cut some 100% wool felt with the same die and adhered it to the front of the card for a fun textured look.  I added the Bunding Border across the cloud with a rainbow of penants.  Using the Glue Tube I added a thin line of glue around the felt cloud and covered it in Chunky Glitter then finished it off with a few clear sequins.


I wanted a simple sentiment inside to go along with the simple card front so I white embossed the "hello" from Yay, Kites! onto Peacock cardstock and cut it out with the coordinating die.

Be sure to check out the Lawn Fawn blog for more cloud projects.  You can see just how I created my felt cloud card in the Outside-In Stitched Cloud Stackables intro video too.

Lawn Fawn June Inspiration Week: Village Shops

Welcome back for day 2 of Lawn Fawn inspiration week. Today we are sharing projects using the new Village Shops stamp set.  This set works well with Happy Village to great some little towns scenes on your projects.


I used the stitched hillside backdrop: landscape to cut some green pattern paper as a base for my little village.  I colored my images in a rainbow to create a very colorful village. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out then tucked them behind the hillsides which I layered over some blue watercolor wishes paper for the sky.  


I also die cut some of the little icons for the shops and added them to the roofs like signs.  I think this looks really cute, especially since not all the shops have windows big enough to stamp the images, this is a fun way to just add a little more detail to the scene.  I also used the simple gift card slots die to create a place for a gift card inside to go along with the sentiment.


Be sure to check out the Lawn Fawn Blog today for more projects with the Village Shops as well as the intro video which features this card. Thanks for stopping by today!
