Pink & Main | Christmas Unicorn Card

Unicorns are for any time of the year! I colored up a Christmas unicorn from Pink & Main and created this quick card! 

I love unicorns, but I feel like they go away for the Holidays and that's just sad! I stamped a unicorn from the Unicorn Wishes Stamp Set and colored it in with traditional Christmas red and green colors then used the coordinating Unicorn Wishes Die Set to cut out the image. 

I created a simple background by die cutting green cardstock with the Plaid Cover A Die and red cardstock with the Plaid Cover B Die. You could use either of these pieces separately or layer them for a simple multicolored background! I die cut a sentiment and popped it up onto my card front and placed the skipping Christmas unicorn above the sentiment. 

I finished off the card with a scattering of Pink & Main pearls and that's it! Thanks for joining me!

Miss Ink Stamps | Warm Winter Wishes Night Scene

I used the new Miss Ink Stamps Warm Winter Wishes Stamp Set to make this easy scene card! Watch my video on YouTube to see how this card came together! 

I stamped the snowmen from the Warm Winter Wishes Stamp Set and colored them with Copic Markers. I wanted to create a simple night scene so I die cut some pine trees and adhered them onto an embossed navy background. I cut a piece of white cardstock for a snowy ground and then popped up my image and sentiment on top. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

ThermOWeb Live with Lynnea | Plaid Holiday Card with Toner Sheets

I love finding ways to add a bit of glam to ThermOWeb Toner Sheets, so I decided to add some Glitz Glitter Gel to create a plaid pattern! Find out all the details live on the ThermOWeb YouTube channel Wednesday, December 1st at 11am CT/ 12pm ET! 

There are a bunch of techniques and companies mixed and matched on this simple, yet glamorous card! I used Gina K Designs Radiant Red Fancy Foil to add foil to a Deco Foil Candy Stripes Toner Card Front and then created a plaid pattern by stenciling Gold Glitz Glitter Gel over the Miss Ink Stamps Candy Stripe Stencil

Isn't it so fun how you can turn a striped pattern into a plaid?! I just love plaid for the Holidays! I love how it can be classic or glamorous! 

I wanted to have glam in my focal point too, so I transferred Radiant Red Fancy Foil onto a Deco Foil Toner Sheet and used the Pink & Main Stacked Snowflakes Die with the Trinity Stamps Big Joy Script Die Set to cut out my pieces from the foiled toner sheet as well as white cardstock. 

Want to learn all the tips, tricks, in and outs of this card? Join me live on the ThermOWeb YouTube channel Wednesday the 1st at 11am CT/ 12pm ET! I'll see you there!

InkOn3 | Easy Masking with Dies

I love easy techniques and I have an easy masked background to share with you! I used Atelier Inks and some Reverse Confetti stamps and dies for this wintery card. 

I stamped a bunch of snowflakes all over my card with Blackout Hybrid Detail Ink and then used the coordinating die set to cut masks for each image from masking paper. 

I placed the masks over the stamped images and then pulled out some Atelier Inks to blend over my background. I started with My Jam Purple at the bottom, Trinity Teal in the middle, and Sweet Petunia Pink at the top. I added some spatters of shimmer watercolor and removed the masks. I love the look! The masks leave a sort of 'halo' around the stamped images that's so fun! 

I planned to make this a one layer card, but I forgot to stamp a sentiment when I was stamping the snowflakes, so I stamped one onto white cardstock, trimmed it out, and popped it up onto my card. 

Thanks so much for joining me! I'll see you soon!

LDRS Creative November Features | Dry Embossing with Coverplate Dies

I'm back with another background embossing technique! Yesterday I showed you how to emboss a background with a stencil and today I'm showing how to emboss with a coverplate die! 

It's just as easy to emboss with dies as it is with stencils! Just follow the instructions from the manufacturer for your die cutting machine!

I embossed my gold cardstock background with the LDRS Creative Modern Trellis A2 Coverplate and created a faux gift with a piece of patterned paper. I added a heat embossed sentiment from the Christmas Wishes Sentiment Stack and this easy card is finished! 

I don't have a lot of space in my craft room, so I don't own a lot of embossing folders. I hope that yesterday's and today's videos inspire you to create an embossed background with things you already have in your craft room!

LDRS Creative November Features | Dry Embossing with Stencils

Get ready for some Holiday inspiration! I decided to show you two different ways to dry emboss your backgrounds with LDRS Creative products. Today I'm showing how to use a stencil to emboss a background! 

I love using products in unexpected ways to stretch them and use them as much as possible. I used my die cutting machine and the Brocade Stencil to emboss a gold cardstock background. Even though the Brocade Stencil isn't a Christmas stencil it looks like it because of the gold background! I finished off the card with the LDRS Creative Layered Poinsettia Dies and a sentiment from the Christmas Wishes Sentiment Stack

Come back tomorrow for another fun embossing technique! 

Trinity Stamps | Mini Slimline Disco Ball Shaker Card

Hello and Happy Thanksgiving! Here's a holographic shaker card made with the Trinity Stamps Mini Slimline Disco Ball Die (and some other new goodies)! 

I love how a cover die can be dressed up or dressed down depending on the cardstock! I gave this mini slimline a whole lot of disco ball glam with some holographic cardstock! 

I dressed up my shaker card with some embellishments from Trinity Stamps and then topped off the card using the Simply Sentimental Happy Stamp Set and the Simple Sentimental Happy Die Set

Thanks so much for joining me! See you soon!
