Crafty Comeback Party - Day 4 - Flora & Fauna + Giveaway

Happy Thursday afternoon!  I had a little issue in my schedule this week, so today's Crafty Comeback Post had to happen later in the day.  Changing it up can be a good thing sometimes...don't you think!

Today I is all about Flora and Fauna!  This is a new {to me} company that I found once I started checking out the paper crafting world again.  And I absolutely fell in LOVE with their stamp sets & diecut designs!

Today I've created a galaxy watercolor background, and featured the Iceberg die, along with a sentiment from the Winter Woodland stamp set! (All products are linked at the end of the post.)  Here is how it turned out!



I'm a little rusty when it comes to watercolor, so I will be honest and say this was my second attempt at the background.  The first one just looked a bit muddy in the sky.  Now, the first one did have a better iceberg reflection, but there wasn't a way to combine the two...and I decided that better sky was more important!

I went to Alaska this summer, and got to see a huge glacier, and icebergs in the sound as we were traveling towards the glacier.  It was AMAZING.  And I think that is what drew me to this metal die!  Now technically, icebergs aren't white.  They are the color of the water...but I'm pretending that this iceberg just got covered in a fresh dusting of snow that happens to be sparkling in the moonlight.  :)


Oh my goodness...I LOVE how this card turned out!  I'm so partial to that iceberg die, and I know I will be using it over & over again!  The Winter Woodland stamp set has even more adorable sentiments & images in it, and I know that it will be put to great use as this holiday & winter season continues!

    My favorite thing about Halloween creating are the color combos... love black, orange, purple, green and dark blue or combos of those! Perfect for a Halloween scene!

  3. Wow, Lea! This is just AMAZING! I love that iceberg die and your beautiful galaxy background. I don't do Halloween crafting, but I do make harvest/autumn cards and projects. I love making them because of the colors, the coziness and warmth that they exude and how happy they make me feel as I make them and how happy they make my recipients feel.

  8. What a totally stunning card. That background is spectacular! Makes me feel cold just looking at this icy scene. I've never been to Alaska....the coldest place I've ever been is right here in Idaho.

  28. Gorgeous background for your iceberg; it reminds me of the Northern Lights that we often see when we visit my grandparents (now my mom's) farm in northern Alberta. Coldest place I've been - the nights when we were on our trek to Everest Base Camp...days were lovely, but the nights! Freezing! I slept wearing my down jacket and several other layers of clothes inside my down sleeping bag...and still shivered! We won't discuss how chilly it was to crawl out of bed in the morning. Brrrrr!

  33. Oh my goodness!!! This galaxy watercolor background is absolutely breathless!!!
    The coldest place where I've ever been was Paris, 5 years ago. I went to Disneyland Paris in February and there were about -7 C (19,4 F). There was freezing wind and it also snowed! Brrr!!! I was born in Sicily (during winter time there's 15 C) and I live in Florence were temperature are about 10 C.
