2nd Entry for the Lawn Fawn Challenge :-)

Hi all :-) I am back with another entry for the Lawn Fawn CHA Winter Catalogue Challenge :-) You can see my 1st entry HERE

This time I made a Valentine card for a Deer Husband using the same Critters in the Snow stamp set .
I downloaded a 3D flip swing heart template from the Silhouette Studio and thought it would make a lovely lovey dovey card :-)

I cut it out using Neenah Dessert Storm for the base, the red hearts using  Bazzill Peppermint and the  heart for the image is Neenah White cardstock. I stamped the deer several times for layering and coloured with Copics, I then inked the edges with Stormy Sky and Forest Moss Distress Inks. I added a Simon Says Stamp Exclusives Small Forest tree and added red glittered hearts using a Holiday Shapes die. I used a Teeny Tiny Backdrops set to stamp the heart design using Rocket Red Brilliance ink, added some star dust stickles here and there and popped a twine bow on the Deer. 

The sentiments were made using a Harold’s ABC set and I finished with a few Prima heart gems.
Thanks for looking :-) I appreciate your comments so please leave me one

Lawn Fawn Winter Challenge :-)

Hi all :-) the lovely Kelly Marie, owner and designer of Lawn Fawn, has a competition asking for cards using her stamps to be used for the new Winter CHA Catalogue and I thought I would join in :-)

The stamp sets that we can use are quite restricted and although I do have several Lawn Fawn sets I only have one Critters set and one Alphabet set that qualifies so I made 2 cards and will just have to hope that one might just be good enough :-) I have seen some of the other entries and they are FABULOUS so wish me luck !! :-) 
If you would like to join in you can find the details ON THIS POST :-)

The first one I made was using a Critters in the Snow set. 

I heat embossed the snowflakes onto some Bazzill Sea Salt cardstock and inked the edges slightly with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. I created the snow drifts using torn plain white card and I added some Glitter Ritz Opaque White Glitter to the edges ,, I LOVE this glitter,, it looks like real snow ! :-) I then stamped and coloured various images from the Critters in the Snow set using Copics and added Glossy Accents to the noses and penguin feet, I also used a little Star Dust Stickles on the igloo. 

I used a Simon Says Stamp exclusives Mod Tree die, I cut using plain white card and inked with Iced Spruce DI. The glittered hearts were made using a Holiday Shapes die and I used a Memory Box Star Of Wonder die for the top :-) The sentiment is from the same set and I added a few gems here and there :-)

I will be back with a 2nd entry soon :-)
