A Trio of Holiday Fun from Larisa

Larisa Hohman is joining us again today with three adorable cards you’re just going to love. Let’s see what sort of cuteness she created for us!

Larisa Hohman

Hello again! I’m so happy to be back another day sharing some cards I made with the fabulous products from My Favorite Things!

Handmade card from Larisa Hohman featuring Birdie Brown Beast Friends stamp set and Die-namics, Snow-Capped Mountains, Downhill Slope, Stylish Snowflakes, Stitched Rounded Rectangle Frames, and Blueprints 18 Die-namics #mftstamps

For my first card, I decided to use the oh-so-cute Beast Friends stamp set! I absolutely love these little guys, and I just had to use one of them on this card. First I stamped the little guy, added a little heart to his chest, and colored him with Copic markers. Next, I  stamped a couple of the trees, paper pieced them with some green patterned paper from the Trail Mix Paper Pack, and fussy cut them as well. Then I used the Snow-Capped Mountains Die-namics and the new Downhill Slope Die-namics to create a little background scene. I framed it with the new Stitched Rounded Rectangle Frames Die-namics and added my little yeti and trees with foam tape.  Some die cut snowflakes from the Stylish Snowflakes Die-namics set and a fun little sentiment top it off. A sweet little winter scene perfect for a Beast Friend!

Handmade card from Larisa Hohman featuring Birdie Brown Polar Bear Pals stamp set and Die-namics, Starry Circle, Blueprints 18, and Birdie Brown Icebergs Die-namics #mftstamps

For my next card, I chose to work with the new Polar Bear Pals stamp set. These little guys are just so SO cute, and I love their little scarves and sweet little faces! I wanted to keep my card clean and simple, so I chose a white background and stayed away from any patterned papers. I stamped the little guy, colored him with Copic markers, and die cut him using the coordinating Die-namics. I stamped and die cut the little bucket of fish as well. As soon as I saw the Starry Circle Die-namics, I knew it was the perfect backdrop for this little cutie, so I cut it out in black card stock and layered it on white to resemble a night sky. I also added some die cut Icebergs to the scene and trimmed off the excess. I popped up the bear and bucket with some foam tape and stamped the sentiment at the bottom in Cherry Crisp Dye Ink. I finished the card off with a little die cut tab and button from Blueprints 18. And there you have it — a simple winter card. I just love how clean and classic this card turned out!

Handmade card from Larisa Hohman featuring Gift Tag Greetings stamp set, Laina Lamb Design Cookie Crumbs and Hug in a Mug stamp sets, and Blueprints 1, Stitched Rounded Rectangle Frames, and Laina Lamb Design Hot Cocoa Cups and You’re the Milk to My Cookie Die-namics #mftstamps

For my final card, I wanted to use the adorable You’re the Milk to My Cookie Die-namics. I just love this set, and I knew I had to use it. Then I got the idea to pair it with an older set — Hot Cocoa Cups! To create my card, I first die cut the cookies and mug of cocoa. I used the new Cookie Crumbs stamp set to add sprinkles to the sugar cookie, and I used the Hug in a Mug stamp set to add sprinkles to the whipped cream on the mug. So this is going to be a delicious snack, as you can tell!  I used the scallop rectangle from Blueprints 1 to create a background from a piece of the red patterned paper out of the Trail Mix Paper Pack. Then I used the Stitched Rounded Rectangle Frames Die-namics to layer on top. I popped it up on the card using some foam tape. Next, I added my mug and cookies and finished it off with a cute little sentiment from the Gift Tag Greetings set. I think this little card would be so cute to include in a batch of homemade cookies for a neighbor or coworker!

Again, thank you so much to My Favorite Things for giving me this opportunity. I’m still pinching myself! I had so much fun creating these cards, and I hope they inspire you to go out and be crafty. Much love and thank you again!

Sweet Woodsy Designs with Larisa

Today’s guest is the talented Larisa Hohman. Let’s check out the fun cards she’s created for us today!

Larisa Hohman

Hello! I just want to take a moment to thank My Favorite Things for the amazing opportunity to guest design for them. It is an absolute dream come true! I had so much fun creating with some of the November release and playing with a few of the oldies but goodies as well. Now, on to the cards…

Handmade card from Larisa Hohman featuring Get Toasty stamp set and Toasted Marshmallows Die-namics, Starry Circle and Blueprints 15 Die-namics #mftstamps

For my first card, I decided to combine the new Starry Circle Die-namics with the Get Toasty stamp set and Toasted Marshmallows Die-namics. I die cut the pieces for the marshmallow stick and inked them with some distress inks to add dimension. I just love how the fire turned out! Then I layered them on top of each other and popped up the marshmallows with some foam tape. I placed the final piece on top of the Starry Circle for a nighttime campfire look. Then, I used Blueprints 15 to layer some of the adorable patterned papers from the Trail Mix Paper Pack. A heat embossed sentiment and some Nuvo drops top it off!

Handmade card from Larisa Hohman featuring Birdie Brown Happy Hedgehogs stamp set, Blueprints 14 and Blueprints 18 Die-namics #mftstamps

For my next card, I decided to stay with the “woodsy” theme by creating a little card with the adorable Happy Hedgehogs stamp set. First, I stamped a couple of these little cuties sitting on a log.  I masked the two together so that they are hugging, and I masked in a mushroom as well. Then I colored them with markers and cut out the scene using the rounded rectangle die from the Blueprints 14. Next, I layered several die cut pieces of the Trail Mix Paper Pack and placed my colored image on top. A patterned flag from Blueprints 18 and some Nuvo drops complete the look.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Be sure to check back tomorrow to see my other creations!

Enjoy Your Day with Jane

Jane Allen is joining us again today with an incredible card featuring our Sweet Sloths stamp set. Let’s settle in and see what’s been brewing in Jane’s creative mind.

Jane Allen

At this time of year we all tend to end up burning the candle at both ends sometimes forgetting to breathe! So here is a card featuring the Sweet Sloths stamp set, and as we all know, sloths have got “chilling” down to a fine art!

Handmade card from Jane Allen featuring Sweet Sloths stamp set, and Stitched Rounded Rectangle Frames and Blueprints 15 Die-namics #mftstamps

For my second guest designing post I opted for my usual no-line colouring style. For those not familiar with this technique, you need to stamp your images in pale ink (I tend to use pale pink). When I add color with Copic markers, the lines disappear giving a delicate, hand drawn look to the image. I would strongly recommend that you stamp the image in black on scrap paper so that you have a clear picture to refer to as you colour.

Handmade card from Jane Allen featuring Sweet Sloths stamp set, and Stitched Rounded Rectangle Frames and Blueprints 15 Die-namics #mftstamps

I decided to add a little doodling of my own so this relaxed little guy is surrounded by greenery. I framed the focal point using the Stitched Rounded Rectangle Frames which I cut out of brown card stock. Then I used my favourite rectangle die for A2 cards from Blueprints 15 for my background and stamped a Sweet Sloths sentiment with Versamark ink which I then heat embossed with superfine white embossing powder.

So whilst the world rushes by at this festive time of year, take time to chill so you too can enjoy your special day!
