Lawn Fawn Wonderful Window

When I saw this sweet die, Lawn Fawn’s new Wonderful Window, I just had to buy it!  This is my first card with this die and there are so many possibilities that I will be using it again and again!  The tulip base slides into the little flower box.  If you want to make the windows open, you can!  There are also little cut outs for each window pane with tulip cut outs, if you want to totally different look.

Warm & Cozy Wishes

 

I just love this image by A Day for Daisies called Hot Coco.  It speaks to me because hot chocolate is my warm drink of choice, since I”m not a coffee drinker.  It was so fun to color with my Copic markers.  I love the little doggy, following along behind.  I used a silver metallic paint marker on her pompom.  I added glossy accents on her bag of marshmallows. The little polka dots were added with a white gel pen.  I popped the image and part of the banner up with fun foam and foam tape.

Halloween Scene

 

Halloween is coming!   I love all the candy and cute kidlets in costumes and candy and well, the CANDY! I could do without all the scary movie commercials though! :).  I decided it was time to create a few fun cards for my Halloween loving friends 🙂  The card set was a labor of love because I rarely make multiples.  I used the Misti when I could, but these cards included lots of masking, layers of stamping, and Copic coloring!  This is the cutest one of the set, I think!

Hagrid!

 

Wow…look at all these cobwebs around here!  I wish I could say it was because Halloween is coming – but really, I’ve just been posting my cards more on Instagram lately.  I tend to make more cards in the colder months – when I’m stuck inside – so card season is coming up here really quickly!! 🙂

I made this card for our niece – her 12th birthday is today!  She recently got to experience the joy of reading the Harry Potter books…so I just couldn’t resist buying this digi from Bugaboo Stamps!  I bought another of the set – and there are so many others that I just love!!

Valentines

Yes, yes, I know it is March…but I couldn’t post the Valentines when I made them because I didn’t want anyone to see them before they were delivered and then, well, you know…life! 🙂   The first three were for my nieces, the last one for my DH.

This Lawn Fawn set is called Bugs and Kisses – that’s also what the sentiment says inside!  The designer paper is by Doodlebug, Inc. – called Love Bug.  The glitter paper on all the cards is by DCWV and the silver by Recollections.

This Lawn Fawn set is called – you guessed it – Love You Tons.  So cute!  The ink stamp stripes are “Belinda’s Borders”, also by Lawn Fawn.

This digi image is called Little Puppy Love by Limited Runs Digital Stamps.  The inside sentiment says Sending Warm Fuzzies by Hero Arts “Everyday Sayings” stamps.   How perfect right?!…the envelopes on the paper and the digi and the fuzzy dog!

I have only made a few shaker cards before, this one also uses Lawn Fawn‘s Bugs and Kisses.  The dies are My Favorite Things Die-Namics By the Letters.  The “you” is from Winnie and Walter “The Big, The Bold and You” stamp set.  I used a transparency and foam tape to add the heart sequins in, after I shaded the back layer with Tim Holtz’ Distress Inks.

Sending Warm Fuzzies

I have some of my other practice sheets started, but not finished.  Instead, I turned to making a card today for one of my nieces who fell off the monkey bars and broke her arm so badly that she had to have surgery and get screws put into it!  Poor thing!!  This card is on the way to her.  I tried the corduroy technique on the bear that was featured in my Copic Class on coloring critters – and tried to practice my hair coloring from earlier lessons!
