Jessica’s Let It Snow Bears

Our Holiday Critters challenge will be open until Sunday December 5th at 11:59PM ET. We can’t wait to see your creativity!

Good morning!  Jess here with a card for our current Holiday Critters challenge!

To start I blended Speckled Egg, Salvaged Patina, and Peacock Feathers distress oxide ink onto a panel of distress cardstock.  I let it dry and then applied Yeti White pigment ink over one of the Snowflake Background Stencils using a blending brush.  I removed the stencil and let the panel dry completely.

While it was drying I stamped some of the cute bears from Den Sweet Den and Snow Much Fun with River Rock no-line ink.  I used cool grey Copic markers and R00 and did a little no-line coloring of my polar bears.  I die-cut them with the coordinating dies and then die-cut the Giant Let it Snow and one of the Mini Snowflakes from silver glitter cardstock.  I also die-cut two Stitched Hillside Borders from white and Pixie Dust cardstock.

Once my background panel was dry I adhered my hills and then added the sentiment.  I arranged the baby bears as if they were climbing all over the sentiment and added the patient mama bear to the scene to finish the card!

And that’s it!  You one more weekend to get crafty and I can’t wait to see your holiday critters!!  Thanks so much for stopping by and have an amazing weekend!

Caly’s Happy Holiday Yeti

Hi there! It’s Caly with you today sharing a project for the Holiday Critters Challenge!  This is an extra long challenge and runs 3 weeks, so you’ll have lots of time to play and enter.  The challenge ends on December 5th at 11:59pm PT.  Be sure to link up your projects on the “current challenge” post located at the top of the page.


My card today uses images from a few winter stamp sets.  I used primarily the Yeti or Not set.  I love these adorable yeti and use it every chance I get.  I also used a house from the Winter Village set, the tree line from the Simply Celebrate Winter set, and snowmen from the Ready Set Snow set.

I stamped and colored all of the images with Copic markers.  When done, I die-cut them and set them aside to work on the background.  I ink-blended a panel with Distress Oxide Inks in Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick and Picked Raspberry, then  lined it with three layers of Stitched Hillside Borders.

Reds:  R21, R22, R27
Oranges:  YR30, YR61, YR66, YR68, Y17
Greens:  G21, G24, G28
Teals:  BG10, BG11, BG13
Blues:  B00, B0000, BG000, BG02, BG07
Browns:  E31, E35
Yeti:  W00, W1, W3, R30

I colored the top of the hillside borders with the BG10 marker to give it a splash of color and contrast between the layers.  I adhered the first two layers right over my ink-blended panel.  The very top layer is attached with foam adhesive to give it more dimension.

I finished by stamping my sentiment at the top of the card panel, attaching my images to create a fun scene.  Lastly, I added some white gel highlights throughout to give these images more interest.

I hope you like it!  There will be lots of inspiration throughout the next 2.5 weeks, so be sure to check back here on the blog or the #lawnfawnatics hashtag on Instagram.  Again, this challenge ends on December 5th at 11:59pm PT. 
Happy crafting!
