"Christmas mini card set" featuring Lawn Fawn !

Update: This "Christmas mini card set" received the "Honorable Gnome" title!! I'm so so happy! thanks!! :)

I'm super happy today because i have some new goodies to show you! 

YAY! My new Lawn Fawn stamps arrived!! :) Their collection for the Winter Season was amazing!! So many beautiful stamp sets and new dies!! I waited some times because i really didn't know which set i like the most in order to buy it.. but when I saw these mice - the special set designed with Simon Says stamp - i fell in love!! 
 These are tooooo beautiful, cute and mice!! ihih!!  :)
And the little alpaca?! Super sweet! 
I stamped them this morning, I didn't have sooo much time and i wanted my cards to enter the Lawnscaping challenge, so i decided to create a cute and super whimsical "Christmas set" of mini and one-layer cards!
Here are some other pictures...  :)

 I keep evrything very simple.. that's what i like to do when i want the critter to be the focus of the card. I stamped all the images twice, first on my card and then on some masking paper. Then i fussy cut the second image and i covered the one on my card. I inked the backgroung with my distress inks trying to soften all the edges.. and then i revealed my stamp pulling off my masking piece. Only after seeing I loved the background i colored my critters.. because if anyting doesn't go well... i don't wanna waste Copic color! :)

I did the same thing for these two card too, but for the second one i first masked one alpaca, i stamped the other and then i masked them all to ink my background!
For finishing all my cards i added some red bows or twine and i drew some details, like my white snowflakes, with a white gel pen and some stitching profiles with a black pen.

Hope you like my project and thank you so so soo much for stopping by today!
