Holiday Card Series 2016 | Card # 14 | Lawn Fawn

Hi all!! It's time for card #14 in my HCS, and today I am having a little fun by turning a non traditional holiday set into a christmas card!  I used the Sweet Smiles stamp set and turned the gumball machine into a bowl full of ornaments!

I've had this idea brewing for quite sometime, and I originally debuted my idea during the Daily Marker 30 Color Challenge.  It was a hit that I had requests to do a video tutorial!

So that is what I did today!

I did some quick copic coloring and added details to my ornaments and bowl, and fussy cut out my image.  

For my background, I used the Stitches cover plate from Ellen Hutson, and some sea glass card stock from SSS.  I also used a pattern from the Fancy Pants Oh Deer 6x6 paper pad that came out last year.  I liked the pop of red against the sea glass card stock.

For my sentiment, I used the Have A Ball sentiment from the Sweet Smiles set as well as the Merry Messages, and masked off one of the sentiments to create a custom sentiment. For the rest of the details for this card, I invite you to watch the video tutorial below!  All supplies used are also listed below the video!  I will back soon for card #15 to wrap up this year Holiday Card Series!

See you then!


  1. So sweet and very clever to make these into ornaments! Great card!
