Oh So Merry (and cute) Kitty Tree!

 Hello crafty friends! **Quick reminder: TODAY is the last day of the BLACK FRIDAY/CYBER MONDAY sale at BRI! 25% off most everything! So be sure to shop shop shop!** Today I'm sharing this simple card featuring the kitty tree from Mama Elephant! Who can resist a pile of cute critters? Mama Elephant has the cutest critter trees and you are sure to find one that you love! They started with the kitties 😸 and now they have puppies  πŸΆ, penguins 🐧, gnomes πŸ„, and the newest one has all the critters 😍! So you can definitely make a card with this same design but feature a different critter tree! For the background, I used the new magic snow cover die from Mama Elephant and ink blended it with distress oxides.  I colored the kitty tree with Copic markers and cut it out with the coordinating dies. Finally, I heat embossed the sentiment with some sparkly embossing powder and Versafine ink. Supplies used: Mama Elephant Oh Kitty Tree (and dies ) Mama Elephant Everything Nice (and die

Jingle and Fla-mingle! with Clearly Besotted

 Hello there!  Audrey here!  Today, I have a pretty in pink holiday card using these adorable little flamingos from Clearly Besotted!  I love that this set has a background scene to pair with the flamingos.  The background image looks great with so  many other Clearly Besotted images too! Here is a close up of my card.  Since the flamingo's legs would have been touch to fussy cut, I stamped him directly on the card panel, then again on another sheet of paper, colored and cut him out and popped him up with foam tape. Supplies used: Clearly Besotted Fa La La Mingo stamp set Lawn Fawn Flower Market 6x6 paper pad Lawn Fawn Ballet Slippers Ink Diamond Stickles Nuvo Drops in Gloss White

Classic Christmas with a Touch of Cute!

 Hello crafty friends! As the blog post title says, today's card embraces classic Christmas but with a touch of cute! Classic Christmas colors, check! Festive wreath, check! Classic Christmas plaid pattern, check! And a cute Lawn Fawn Christmas-y deer, check!!  I love mixing brands and using new products with older favorites! I saw the new Concord & 9th plaid turnabout stamp and love how it can be a versatile background for occasions beyond the holidays. I made the background with some classic Christmas colors-- red, green, black, and silver.  I heat embossed the silver but let me give you some tips if you heat emboss with this stamp!! (1) Make sure your background is COMPLETELY dry, especially if you use pigment inks or else the embossing powder will stick to it. (2) Don't forget to use a powder tool before you stamp with embossing ink! (3) Stamp with embossing ink/heat emboss on your last "turn." To create the wreath, I used 3 shades of green cardstock for

 Hi crafty friends! It is time to crank out the HOWL-iday cards! Today's card features some cute Lawn Fawn puppies building a snowman! (Look out, one mischievous puppy grabbed an arm! And don't forget the mittens, little puppers!) I colored up the images and also the snowman die cuts with Copic markers. It's hard to see but I added some prisma glitter to the snowman and Santa hat. For the background, I used the Lawn Fawn snowfall backdrop die with patterned paper. You can't tell in the picture but I added flocking to my snow drift for extra fluffy fun.

Pumpkin Basket Easy Pull Tab Card

 Hi crafty friends and happy November! I wanted to share one last fall/Thanksgiving card before launching into Christmas cards. I just love the recently released Concord & 9th Freshly Picked dies and stamp set ! It is such a cute and versatile set and the interactive option is seriously the easiest one I have ever made! I cut out all the pieces for the basket and pumpkins from colored cardstock. For the wooden basket, I used kraft cardstock and ink blended the edges for some interest with gathered twigs Distress Ink. I thought it would be fun to have some cute critters hanging out with the pumpkins and the Lawn Fawn mice were perfect for this little scene. I used a small sign stamp from Mama Elephant The Cat's Meow for the "pick me" so the recipient knows to pull the pumpkin for the interactive feature. For the sentiment on the banner and pull tab, I used the sentiments from the coordinating Freshly Picked stamp set. Since I made this a fall themed card with pumpkin
