Jurassic Fun Fold - Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #33


Hey friends! Today I'm bringing you a super fun card for our latest Lawn Fawnatics Challenge: Fun Folds! This card was totally inspired by the recent movie Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. My boys and I are huge fans of the entire series, and after returning home from the latest installment (so good!), I just had to make a dino-themed card. But dinosaurs are BIG, right? So I needed space to do my scene justice. I knew a Z-fold card was the way to go.


The great thing about the Z-fold card, is that from the outside it forms a complete scene in and of itself. If I'd really wanted to, that could have been a card right there. But who wants to have just a little fun when they can have a whole lotta fun! Am I right?

So I stamped my images from Critters From the Past, colored them with Copic markers and trimmed them out with the matching dies.


For my focal panel, I folded a 4 1/4" x 11'' piece of pale blue cardstock at the 5 1/2'' mark to form a standard sized card. Then I simply scored the front panel at the halfway mark of 2 3/4'' and folded it back on itself. Then I die cut a continuous piece of kraft cardstock with the Stitched Mountain Borders, scored and folded it in the same places to match, and adhered them together. 


To finish off the scene, I added a few cooled lava caps to the mountains, some Spring Showers clouds, and my dinosaurs, of course. I used some Copics to add a sandy texture to the ground to give my dinos a place to stand. Finally, I adhered my Everyday Sentiment Banner to the top right corner. 

This card is so much fun to play with! Opening it up to reveal those two secret half-panels just brings a smile to my face every time.

1 Set 4 Ways Episode 4


Hey friends! Happy Monday! Today I'm bringing you Episode 4 of my popular series 1 Set 4 Ways. I created four cards using the adorable Hello Bluebird Pig Day stamp set.


The images were colored with Copic markers during The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge. I trimmed them out with the matching dies, and kept them in a little dish on my desk until I was ready to use them.


I also pulled in accessory images from Puddle Play and McGregor's Garden, such as the ducklings, birds, and veggies.





I stamped my sentiments on the kraft strip with Lawn Fawn Walnut ink, using a different sentiment on each for the most variety.



Then I played around with my images until I was happy with the arrangements, and then adhered them down to the focal panels with the Glue Tube.


For my patterned papers, I chose the Doodlebug Down on the Farm 6x6, which I thought went perfectly with these sweet piggies. I chose five patterns and tried to use similar strips on each to tie them all together.



I also did some fun stamping on the insides, which you can check out in the video. Click the YouTube icon at the bottom right to watch it there in HD, and don't forget to like and subscribe! Your support means so much.

Thrilling Birthday - Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #32


Happy Monday, friends! It's time for another Lawn Fawnatics Challenge, and this time we've got a fun color combo to inspire you! I decided to pull out Coaster Critters and do a boyish birthday card.



I colored my images with Copics and trimmed them out with the matching dies. For the focal panel, I trimmed out both light blue and white cardstock with the Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Frames, and added my images using a combo of foam tape and glue tube.


On top of my Moonstone card base I layered some Perfectly Plaid Spring 6x6 paper trimmed down with the Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables. Then I added my focal panel on top with more foam adhesive for added dimension.


On the inside I did some fun stamping with Moonstone ink, which you can check out in the video below. Click on the YouTube icon to watch there in HD and don't forget to like and subscribe!

Christy Gets Crafty with My Favorite Things - June


Hey friends! Today I'm excited to bring you the June edition of Christy Gets Crafty with My Favorite Things! This month I was inspired by the cute kitties from Meow Mix. So darling! 


One of my favorite things about June is all the pretty flowers popping up in gardens and yards and I thought that would be the perfect place for my kitty to spend the day. I added in extra flowers from Beautiful Day and the bird from Sending A Smile and colored them all with Copic markers.


To keep with the whimsical style of the images, I created a fun background with the Moroccan Mosaic Stencil. I added a Grassy Hills Border and adhered my images with a combo of liquid glue and foam tape. 

I trimmed down some Plaid Patterns patterned paper with the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 2 and a strip of Calm & Cozy Chevrons with the Stitched Scallop Basic Edges and adhered those to a Peach Bellini card base. I popped my focal panel up with more foam tape and added a little Stickles glitter glue as a finishing touch.

Garden Friends - Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #31


Hey friends! Happy Monday. Today I'm excited to bring you another Lawn Fawnatics Challenge, and this one is definitely a good fit for the season.


I started out with Gleeful Gardens and added in a few images from Fairy Friends and the bee from Bugs & Kisses. I colored them all with Copic markers and trimmed them out with the matching dies.

To create a focal panel, I used the Stitched Journaling Card die to trim out some pale aqua cardstock and the Grassy Border die to cut out two different shades of green. I added the darker one in the background and popped the lighter one up with foam tape to give the scene some depth.


Then I added in my images, staggering them behind both grassy borders to continue that look of dimension, even though they are all adhered flat to the panel. Then I popped up my snails and bees with foam tape to draw your eye and give them the focus.

I layered my patterned papers on my card and added my focal panel on top with more foam tape. I adhered a sentiment trimmed out with an Everyday Sentiments Banner. As a final touch I dabbed on a little bit of Stickles here and there for some sparkle and shine.



I also did some stamping on the inside of the card, which you can check out in the video. Click the YouTube icon to watch it there in HD and don't forget to like and subscribe! Your support means the world.

Scuba Diver's Delight - Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #30


Hey friends! Welcome to Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #30! This round is all about card for guys! I decided to make a card inspired by my brother, who is a scuba diving instructor, using the new You Are Sublime stamp set. So much fun!


To really set the scene, I also pulled in images from Mermaid For You and Fintastic Friends. I colored them with Copic markers and trimmed them out with the matching dies. Then I created a Distress Inked background for my scuba diver and sea creatures to live in. I used Antique Linen, Blueprint Sketch, Lucky Clover, and Peacock Feathers, then sprinkled on a bit of water to give it a mottled effect to look like bubbles.


I adhered my focal panel to my Blue Jay card base, then added my images with a combination of liquid glue and foam tape. I stamped a sentiment and a few extra images on the inside with Deep Sea ink, which you can check out in the video. As a finishing touch, I added a little Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Sparkle Pen to the fish for a bit of shimmer.
