Jolly Holidays

I discovered some get well foamies in my stash so I made this card.  The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn and the ink is from Distress ink pads and markers.  There is also a little GelWriter gel pen in there.  I designed the road myself.

I think this is my best Christmas card so far.  The stamps are from three Lawn Fawn sets.  The "jolly" is from my Cameo.  I used the negative space to put down embossing powder and heat set it with gold embossing powder on top.  I coloured the seal with Crayola markers and added stickles for detail on the snowflakes.  Hope you have a jolly holiday!  :)

Christmas Card Day

I made this card for the Lawn Fawnatics challenge.  All the stamps and pattered paper are from Lawn Fawn.  I photographed this in direct sunlight (because that is all there was).. I'll try and take another photo without shadows but its the holiday season and I am busy and behind...

Rejoice Bear Card

Made with Neat and Tangle's Origami Map (lower sentiment) and their Better Together (the bear) stamp sets plus Sugar Pea's Easter Blessings set set (Rejoice!).  The patterned paper is from an old 12x12 paper pack.  I stamped each bear in VersaMark and then covered it with clear embossing powder.  I coloured in the bears using Distress Markers and Crayola Markers and then added water droplets and water marks behind the bears.  After this was dry I added more detail with my Prismacolor Pencil Crayons.  Lastly, I added some gems and Frosted Lace Stickles.
