Christmas Card for the Week

Here is my Christmas Card for the week - 
That was close trying to get it in this week!!

I used Lawn Fawn Christmas Dreams
& Lawn Fawn Shadow Box Die.

 I used K&Company Paper

I thought that the patchwork paper
would be super cute, but
When finished I think it was a bit busy,
next time I will use more plain paper.

 The tree and fireplace are on the second tab
in behind the puppy tab.

 When you close the card you can see the fire in the fireplace,
and the stockings hung on the mantel.

 Her is the top, The tree is taller than the card so it pops out.

You can see it from the front, and from the back.

Here is the top of the tree popping out from the  card.

When I fold down the puppy's dream
you can see the fireplace and details.

 Here you can see the puppy dream attached
to a strip of acetate.
I also used my new black glaze pen on his nose.

Hope you all enjoyed my weekly Christmas card!!

Valentines For Friends

I love to get together with my friends and scrapbook - 
there are only a few Crop around where I live- 
Unfortunately I have missed the last 2
as I have been away with the kids!

This past Saturday was the Craft for Heart in our area.
It has always been known as Crop for Heart but with 
numbers dwindling at the even - 
they thought they may try something new.
All crafters could bring their projects.

Even though I wasn't there,
I sent Valentines for my Friends.

They were so much fun, 
I used the Lawn Fawn Box Card & Shadow Box card Dies.
This will be some of my favorite to play with for along time.

Here is the Shadow box card, 
I used the Stinkin' Cute Lawn Fawn Set inside & 
Paper is K&Company.

This is the top view of the card,
you can see the banner at the back, 
and the 2 hillsides staggered in the card.

These super cute trees come with the Shadow box die.

 I coloured most of the skunks like the above photo
but saw one on Pinterest like the one below, 
so I thought I would try it!

Here is the second style, The Pop-Up box card.
The stamp set on this card id the lawn Fawn Elphie Selfie,
I did use another bird from another set, 
sorry not sure which one as I have Lawn Fawn 
pieces coloured & ready to go on my desk.
I love how they co-ordinate, so to get the most from my sets, 
I have several ready to go so I can play with the set up of all of my cards.
Paper is K&Company.


This is the card closed, as you see they fold flat for envelopes, 
and can pop open as soon as the card is out.

Top view of the closed card.


I took a few pictures of the process- 
something I am going to try to do more of this year.

Here is the stamp set & the coloured pieces ready for assembly.
I have 4 of these clear trays on my desk, stacked with coloured 
images ready to make cards, or add to cards.
That way I can sit & colour or sit & assemble / create!
 

Here is the card float open, 
I attached the hills to one side, then the other.
Picture two is the hills attached to the left side with 
the elements on them, no decorative embellishments yet.
 

 As you can see i like to assemble all the elements ( trees etc) first, 
then I start the construction of all the cards once I have all of the items ready.
I find I get more done this way.
Second picture is the card with all of the decorative pieces added.
 

If you havent played with these dies - put it on your list...
They are so much fun!

We went to visit over the week-end and

A Special Valentine - Little Red Wagon #423

I made Garett a special Valentine - 
before I show you you need to know 
that he misses his puppy.
This is Bentley.

So I searched the internet and found a retired
 Lawn Fawn set, Happy Howlidays.
Image result for lawn fawn happy howlidays

The puppy in the set looks like Benny
(that's his nick name).

So I made this card with a puppy 
that looks like his puppy.

I made most of the card to go with the Little Red Wagon's 
challenge this week Shades of Red
Check them out here:




I hope you are getting all of your Valentines Cards done, 
I love making seasonal cards, do you?

MFT Colour Challenge #87Adorable Elephant Valentine

I was sitting at the desk this week and 
Valentines seamed to be the theme - 

here in one more Valentine I completed
using the Adorable elephant Stamp from MFT
& the MFT Colour Challenge #87



You can check out all of their great challenges here:
MFT Card Challenges


I really like the muted tones in this card.
I think this could double as a great baby card when I need one.

I don't have the MFT inks or paper yet so I used what I have.
I only started to really get into stamped cards this fall,
do I have to slowly build the stash.
Although I have not been purchasing at a slow pace!


Grey was the base and elephant,
black ink to outline and stamp.
Light pink circle & ears.
Raspberry balloon.

I added a scalloped white circle - black was too dark.
Green grass to stand on as he looked like he was floating.
I also really like the elephant on pop dots.


Sentiment on the front & inside are from Lawn Fawn Love Letters.


Well as you can see I have been getting a few cards done, 
feels so great to create, 
hope you have had time to be creative as well!!

Sketch n Scrap Card Challenge = Weekly Christmas card

I used the February card challenge sketch for my 
weekly Christmas card - yep I got another one completed!

here is the Sketch & the link so you can play along :



I used an OLD Lawn Fawns set
Happy Howlidays

 The paper is an Old K&Company Christmas Pad that I am trying to use up.

The Puppy is Happy Howlidays & The Banner is Bannertastic.


 I cut the puppies head off to put the scarf under, 
I am not sure if its better or not but it does add dimension.
Its hard to tell in these photos bu there is Wink of Stella 
on the snow mounds & snowflakes to give it a little sparkle.


To make it a little different I rounded all of the corners.
