Arctic Winter MFT & Lawn Fawn

Today I’d like to share with you a card that I made especially for winter time.  I’ve always been fascinated with the idea that it stays dark so long in the Arctic during winter, with very little daylight. I wonder what it’s like for the animals that live there?
 I had a freebie stamp from My Favorite Things that I paired with some snowflakes from Lawn Fawn to create a night scene.  I used Picket Fence Distress Ink to create a cloudy sky, and Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Ink to give just the impression of blue water in the night.  Don't you just love the way Distress Oxide shows up on dark colored paper? I cut the ice floats from vellum.  The snowflakes were cut from scraps I had from another project.  I can’t remember now exactly which Distress Ink colors I used.  The sentiment stamp is from Lawn Fawn's Critters in the Arctic. The black card stock is from my stash, and the blue card stock is MFT's Sno Cone. I’m entering this Card in the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes Wednesday Challenge.  I hope you like it!

Sending Smooches

Hi!  Today I'm sharing a card I made for My Favorite Things Sketch 369.
You can see the sketch here.
For my card, I used MFT BluePrints 21, and the My Favorite Things/ EllenHutson collaborative stamp set Good Friends from The Ellen Hutson United We Flourish series.  Isn't this little pup just the cutest?  My sister and I had a Dalmatian when we were younger, and I think this card will be just perfect for her!  He was a sweet guy named Patch, and he had one black ear, so I just may have to color one of this dog's ears!  Hope you have enjoyed my card, and thanks for visiting!

Day 12 of the 12 Tags of Christmas With a Feminine Twist

Well, it's the final day of the 12 Tags of Christmas With a Feminine Twist.  What fun it has been! Today I made an interactive tag, inspired by Carly Tee Minner's tag.  
This fun interactive door die by Lawn fawn opens up to reveal a cute pup in a Santa hat--also by Lawn Fawn.  


Day 11 of the 12 Tags of Christmas With a Feminine Twist

Today the tag challenge for the 12 Tags of Christmas With a Feminine Twist at the Ellen Hutson Classroom was a color challenge.  I struggled somewhat with figuring out what to do.  I didn't have all of the colors, and that's probably because they're not my favorites.  However, I forged forward, and I hope you'll like the results as much as I did in the end!  My tag today was inspired by Carolyn Peeler's tag.



Day 10 of the 12 Tags of Christmas With a Feminine Twist

Day 10 of the 12 Tags of Christmas With a Feminine Twist challenge was right up my alley!  I love the Rainbow colors!  My tag was inspired by Sharon Harnist today.  The stamps I used are from My Favorite Things, and the tag die is from Pretty Pink Posh.

Day 9 of 12 Tags of Christmas With a Feminine Twist

Day 9!  I'm still having so much fun playing along with the 12 tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist at the Ellen Hutson Classroom blog.  Today my tag was inspired by Heather Meeson.  The stamps I used on this tag are from Honeybee Stamps.  It's almost impossible to see in the photo, but the packages are very glittery--and trucks are for girls, too!

Day 8, 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist

The 12 Tags of Christmas With a Feminine Twist challenge today at Ellen Hutson's blog is a sketch.  My tag today was inspired by Lisa Adametz' tag.
This was a fun one!  Dies: Simon Says Stamp and Ellen Hutson; Ink: Close to My Heart; Patterned Paper: Crate Paper

Day 7 of the 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist

I'm still playing along with the 12 Tags of Christmas With a Feminine Twist over at Ellen Hutson's blog.  This tag was inspired by Heather Campbell's tag.  I loved the color scheme she used for the bear tag, and I used her Copic marker colors to color my tag.  The stamps I used for this tag are from Poppystamps.

Day 6 of 12 Tags of Christmas With a Feminine Twist

Today the challenge for 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist is a beautiful color pallet of green, purple and grey.

My tag is inspired by Katie Caracciolo.  Isn't her tag gorgeous?


Here is my tag.  I hope you like it! 



Day 5 of 12 Tags of Christmas With a Feminine Twist


Today the tag I made for Day 5 of The Twelve Tags of Christmas With a Feminine Twist over at Ellen Hutson's Classroom blog is inspired by Eloise Blue.  You can't get more snow-themed than snowballs, am I right?  The image stamp and tag die are from My Favorite Things, and the coloring was done with Copic markers and accented with Wink of Stella in clear.  The sentiment stamp is from Hero Arts.

Day 4 of 12 Days of Christmas With a Feminine Twist

Today my tag for the 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist is inspired by Sandy Allnock.  She made the most beautiful tag with a cottage covered by vellum.  I couldn't find any vellum in my stash, but I did manage to create a tag with a similar feel, (I hope!)
The stamps are from Hero Arts, and the Tag dies are from Pretty Pink Posh and My Favorite Things.  I colored the image with Zig Clean Color pens.  There was a fair amount of color bleeding, since I didn't have a lot of time to allow each color to dry, but I am still satisfied with the effect.  As of this posting, this tag has already been used to send off a little care package to my daughter for finals!
