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!

A Snowy Snow Globe Shaker with our Guest Designer, Isha!

Isha created a super cute shaker card using Ready Set Snow to inspire you for our What’s the Weather challenge!

We hope you will join the challenge! It will be open until Sunday, February 14th at 11:59PM ET.

Let’s let Isha tell us how she created her snowy shaker card!

I am so excited to be here on the blog today as a guest. Thank you so much Lawn Fawn for having me here.

I started by creating the background by stamping the snow stamp with Clear Embossing ink, sprinkle white embossing powder and heat set. Blend Abandoned Coral and Worn Lipstick Distress inks to create an ombrè look. Stamp the snowflake using Worn Lipstick ink using 1st and 2nd generation stamping technique, creating the variation in color. Finish by splattering some white and silver paint.

Stamp the Ready Set Snow snow globe onto the pattern paper using clear ink, heat emboss using white embossing powder. Cut the inside of the globe to create a window. (Note: you could die cut the snow globe using the Ready Set Snow Shaker Add-On die to create the window.)

Stamp the trees using various inks and die-cut using the coordinating dies. Die-cut the snowy backdrop pattern paper (from Snow Day Remix 6×6) using the snow globe die. Adhere 2 small white hills and adhere the trees. Adhere acetate behind the snow globe and create the shaker.

Stamp the snowman, color and die-cut. Stamp the sentiment and assemble the card together.

Thank you for dropping by! Isha

Big hugs and thanks to Isha for inspiring us with her wonderfully creative weather-themed projects! It has been wonderful having you join us for this challenge!
