Sledding critters AE card

Hello there!

Today I'm sharing a card featuring the cute Sledding Critters stamps and dies.
I started by stamping them on Bristol smooth cardstock with a waterproof ink and then used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and a waterbrush to color them.

Because the image is full of critters and I used bold colors for my coloring, I decided to keep the rest of the card simple. I created a little scene with some favorite dies: the new Cityscape Elle-ments and the super versatile Picket Fence Elle-ments. And because it's  Christmas scene card, I wanted to add some snow. I love adding texture to my cards and a stencil seemed a great option to do that so I decided to create my own!


This is something really easy to do, you just need a piece of acetate and a die. I used the Falling Snow die, running it on top of my acetate piece several times until I have it completely covered of "snow holes". Then I placed my custom stencil on top of my piece of cardstock and applied some snow  embossing paste.


Once the background is covered with snow, make sure to clean everything with water so you can keep using your new stencil forever :) Then let the snow dry and you're ready to finish your card!

I adhered my scene panel to a kraft card base where I heat embossed the sentiment of the card and,
as a little detail, I used some Glossy Accents on the bear glasses, several colors of Nuvo drops on the Christmas lights and some twine for the top of the card :)


I hope you like my project and give a try to my little tip. You can create your own stencils using a lot of different big and small dies from different sets, just have fun!

Thank you so much for stopping by, have a great day!

More Lawn Fawn September inspiration week cuteness

I'm a bit late because you've probably seen these projects at the Lawn Fawn blog during the September inspiration week but I wanted to share them here at my blog too!

First, I made these little pillow boxes which are perfect for little Christmas gifts. To create the little tags, I used two circle tags of the same size.


First I die cut the Mini Wreath out of one of them and then I colored with green watercolors the other. I adhered the one with the wreath on top of the green one with dimensional adhesive and finally, I added that little bow that I previously die cut with the die included in the set and Knit Picky papers.


My second project features the super cute/lovely/amazing Christmas Dreams stamps. I needed to add the little puppy from Bicycle Built For You stamps, he's just too cute!


I created this scene coloring all the little images with Copics and adding some detail with Nuvo Indian Gold Mousse and a white gel pen. For my background I used papers from the Knock on Wood and Perfectly Plaid Winter collections.


And finally, I want to share these Christmas tags I made using the new For You Deer stamps and dies and the Winter Tiny Tags.


I created two different styles with them, a glittered style by adding Stickles to the snowflake die, and a more rustic style by stamping the Gingham Backdrops pattern on the mitten.


I hope you enjoyed the Lawn Fawn September inspiration week and feel inspired to get crafty! Thank you so much for your kind words and supportm :)

Have a nice day!
