Santa's Sleigh

Hello my friends and welcome back.  Today I have a card to share that I created using a bunch of products from Lawn Fawn, including the Toboggan Together stamp set and matching dies.

This was the first time I used the Forest Border die and well as the Little Town Border.  I first cut them both out of white card stock and then for the trees, I used some distress oxide inks to colour them.  For the cute little house, I used the border die to cut out several different colours of card stock and then cut off the individual houses and glued them to the front of the white border. I used yellow card stock behind the houses to create "lights" for the houses.

For the sky I cut out a piece of blue card stock and then used unicorn ink from Hero Arts and the Snowfall stencil from MFT Stamps to create snow in the sky.  I wasn't totally happy with how that turned out so I then also sprayed the sky with Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels. (It doesn't really show in the picture but it real life it has a lovely shimmer.)

Here is a picture of my finished card.




Below is a list of the supplies I used.

Stamps: Lawn Fawn - Toboggan Together
Dies: Lawn Fawn - Toboggan Together, Stitched Hillside Borders, Forest Border and Little Town Border,  Hero Arts - Nesting Rectangle Infinity Dies

Happy Holidays

Welcome to the first full week of November.  Today I have a card to share with you that I created with a couple of different stamp set from Hero Arts.

I can't believe that I only just bought the Colour Layering Christmas Trees stamp set and this card is the first time I ever used it.  I loved that you can create trees in the woods or an actual decorated Christmas tree.

I stamped the three with three different shades of green and then for the final layer I used white pigment ink.  I was trying to add the look of snow.  I think it would work better if I stamped the final layer with veramark and then used whit embossing powder instead.  I'm still pretty happy with how it turned out.




Below is a list of the supplies I used.

Stamps: Hero Arts - Color Layering Christmas Tree and the October 2017 My Monthly Hero kit
Dies: Hero Arts - October 2017 My Monthly Hero Coordinating Frame Cuts,  MFT Stamps - Blueprints 13
Inks: Simon Says Stamp - Intense Black,  Versafine - Onyx Black,  Distress Ink - Tumbled Glass,  Hero Arts - Lime Green, Field Greens, Forever Green, Cornflower Shadow Ink and Unicorn Pigment Ink
Copic Markers: E11, E31, E33, E34, R24, R27, W00, W1
Other: Recollections - 110lb White card stock,  MFT Stamps - Drifts & Hills Stencil
