Hello everyone! It’s hard to believe but today is the last Tuesday Tea with Twiddler’s Nook on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog for 2021! Another year has completely flown by! Today I’m sharing a fun mash up card with Newton’s Nook images and some Lawn Fawn dies.
I started my card by stamping images from Newton’s Nook Sending Hugs and Snowman Greetings stamp sets. I colored them with my copic markers and cut them out with the coordinating dies. Then I die cut my background panel from white cardstock using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Snowflake Backdrop die and inked it up with some Lawn Fawn dye ink and a blending brush. I smooshed some of the ink on my glass mat, sprayed it with water and used a paintbrush to flick it on the background for added texture.
With my background finished, I used it along with my images as guides to die cut a white snowy hill to ground my scene. Then I combined a few Lawn Fawn sets to create a custom sentiment to make this a fun winter thank you card to use after the holidays. The top and bottom sentiments came from Thanks a Latte and the middle word came from Big Thanks. After that was stamped I flicked some paint on the hill as well to tie in the speckles a little. Then I popped it up with foam tape on the bottom of my card front.
Last, I added my images with foam squares and liquid glue and switched over to finishing touches. For that I added glossy accents to the snowman nose, buttons and heart, and the other critter noses and beaks too. Then I added black glaze pen to the eyes with a little white gel pen highlight on Winston. So that everyone had a little shiny interest I also added glossy accents to the coffee cup lid and ribbon on the gift. Then to complete my scene I adhered a scattering of snowflakes from Twiddler’s Nook’s Snowy Day embellishments.
Have you switched gears yet or are you still holiday crafting? I am doing a mix of thank you cards and still making holiday things as I’m inspired. I’ve even thrown in a couple Valentine’s Day cards already too. So fun!
