It is always such a pleasure to welcome Kelly here in the CLASSroom! Her style is the empitome of feminine even when she uses "fierce" products like the newest Yeti set :) Seeing Mike and Kelly at CHA is always a highlight of the trip - their warmth emanates from within as you enter their booth and they share the excitement of their product line with us!
You can always find inspiration on their Lawn Fawn blog as Kelly shares fabulous videos and the work of their talented design team. Thank you sweet Kelly for once again joining in the fun and sharing your fierce little Yeti tag with us this year! -Ellen
Hello, everyone! I am so thrilled to be back for Ellen's 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist! This year I decided to take it literally and turn Lawn Fawn's yeti into a sweet girl yeti! :)
I stamped the Yeti in Memento tuxedo black Ink, and then drew on some sweet lashes using the Memento tuxedo black Marker! This is a great way to add a little something to a stamped image but still be able to use Copic markers over it!
To keep with the feminine theme, I decided to color in the yeti's face and belly with some Copic markers. I love just adding a little line of light gray to an image I am going to leave white. I think it gives it a little extra something!
I used some Hero Arts Layering Paper cut into the 1/2 inch strips to create a cool striped pattern on the tag. I used some Sookwang tape to cover the edge, and I made sure it was stuck down really well by pressing a bone folder over it. I peeled off the backing and covered it in glitter! Now it looks like I have custom striped glitter paper. A perfect base for a cool yeti! :)
I then covered the tag in some paper from Peace Joy Love, and I used a ruler to help me mimic that cool cut edge of the tag. I am not the best eye-baller, so I always have my ruler handy!
My next step was to create the perfect snowy forest for the yeti! I used Lawn Fawn's Let It Snow and some Hero Arts shadow inks for the trees. I started with just a few trees and kept adding them and overlapping them until it looked like a really full forest. Then I stamped the snow builder from Let It Snow. I didn't want the white ink to get on that pretty glitter, so I just used some computer paper to mask it off and protect it. The next step was to hand cut some snowy hills. I like to lift up the edges to give it dimension!
The last step is the finishing touches! I love creating cute shaped tag reinforcers, so I covered some card stock with the Sookwang tape, die cut it with Lawn Fawn's Hearts die, peeled off the backing, and then covered it in glitter. I punched a hole with my Cropadile, and it gave me a coordinating reinforcer! I then heat embossed the Winter Gifts sentiment in white for some pop and added some Silver Sparkle Lawn Trimmings!
And that finished off my tag! I had such a blast taking, what could be considered, a more masculine stamp and giving it a sweet feminine edge! It's amazing what some pink, glitter, and mascara will do! ;) -Kelly
