Stretching Your Dies: A Winter Scene Card feat. the Lawn Fawn Spooky Forest Backdrop

Hello friends. Here’s a Christmas/Winter scene card using the Lawn Fawn Spooky Forest Backdrop dies. This dieset is very versatile and allows you to create cards for several occasions. I combined it with the very cute Lawn Fawn HERE WE GO A-WADDLING Clear Stamps to create this fun card!

For this card, I cut a piece of Neenah 100lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to create a card base and a piece of Lawn Fawn Spiffier Speckles 6×6 Paper to 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″ for the background. I used the Tim Holtz STORMY SKY Distress Ink to give some dimension to the background.

Next I die cut the forest from Neenah 100lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with the Lawn Fawn Spooky Forest Backdrop 3x, the snowy hills from more Neenah 100lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders and inked it with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. I also added some Nuvo Fresh Snowfall Glitter Drops to the snowy hills.

I stamped the images from the Lawn Fawn HERE WE GO A-WADDLING Clear Stamps onto Neenah 100lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copic Markers. I used R20 (cheeks), N1, N3, N4, N5, N7 & N8, 0 (body), YR04 & YR07 (feet and beak), R17, R27 & R59 (hats and scarves), YG25, YG67 & YG17 (hats and ear muffs) for the penguins; Y13, Y15 & Y17 for the bell and lantern.

I die cut the banner from Neenah 100lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ and Stampin’ Up! Basic Gray 8-1/2 x 11″ Cardstock with the Lawn Fawn Fancy Wavy Banner Dies. I then stamped the sentiment from the same stampset onto the banner with Catherine Pooler Rockin’ Red Ink. I added highlights using a Uni-ball Signo Broad Point White Gel Pen.

On the inside of the card, I cut a piece of Lawn Fawn Spiffier Speckles 6×6 Paper to 1 x 4-1/4″ and stamped a sentiment from the Lawn Fawn HERE WE GO A-WADDLING Clear Stamps with Catherine Pooler Rockin’ Red Ink.

Halloween Card Using Only Dies feat. Lawn Fawn

Hello friends. It’s been a few weeks since I posted a Halloween card so it’s time for some new ones. Here is one using only Lawn Fawn dies and stencils. It features the Lawn Fawn Spooky Forest Backdrop and Spooky Gate dies. It’s really easy to create fun or spooky dimensional cards with these dies.

For this card, I cut a piece of Simon Says Stamp 100lb Black Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to create a card base and a piece of Lawn Fawn Spiffier Speckles 6×6 Paper to 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″ for the background. I used the Lawn Fawn Nighttime Sky Stencil with Tim Holtz Wilted Violet, Dusty Concord, Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks, and Scattered Straw Distress Oxide Ink.

Next I die cut the forest from Simon Says Stamp 100lb Black Cardstock with the Lawn Fawn Spooky Forest Backdrop 3x, the grass from Stampin’ Up! Mossy Meadow Cardstock (retired) with the Lawn Fawn Simple Grassy Hillsides and inked it with Stampin’ Up! Mossy Meadow Ink (retired), and the gate from Simon Says Stamp Slate 100lb Gray Cardstock with the Spooky Gate and inked it with Tim Holtz Black Soot Distress Ink to add some dimension. I die cut tombstones, ghosts, stones, and owl from Neenah 100lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ and colored with Copic Markers. I used R20, C00, 0, & 110 for the ghosts; C3, C5, C9 & 110 for the owl; N1 & N4 for the tombstones; and W3 & W5 for the stones.

I stamped the sentiment from the Lawn Fawn Spooky Village Stampset onto Neenah 100lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with Catherine Pooler Midnight Ink. I trimmed it down to 1/2 x 4″.

I finished off the card by adding some sparkle to the ghosts and the owl with a Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Sparkle Pen.

On the inside of the card, I cut a piece of Neenah 100lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 4 x 5-1/4″ and stamped a sentiment and ghosts from the Lawn Fawn Spooky Village Stampset with Catherine Pooler Midnight Ink.
