Fawny Holiday Week + 2017 Holiday Card Series #5


Hey friends! Today I'm so excited to be bringing you my card for Fawny Holiday Week over at Lawn Fawn! I created an Aurora Borealis background with Distress Inks to set the stage for my Snow Cool Penguins to live and play.


I watercolored them with Zigs, cut them out with the matching dies,  and popped them up with foam tape over some Stitched Hillside Borders. I brought in a sentiment from Snowy Backdrops and finished off the card with some iridescent crystals.


I also did some fun stamping on the inside with Winter Penguin, but I'll save that for the video. Click on the YouTube icon at the bottom right to watch there in HD, and don't forget to subscribe!

I also stamped on the backs, but I'll save that for the video. Click the YouTube icon to watch it there in HD, and I'd love for you to subscribe!

Lawn Fawnatics Chalenge #16 and 2017 Holiday Card Series #3


Hello crafty friends! It's time for Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #16 which is a fun one! It's all about using your oldest Lawn Fawn set. I have been in love with Lawn Fawn since the very beginning, so my oldest set is the timeless Critters in the 'Burbs, which just happens to include my favorite image of all time, the squirrel! Lawn Fawn has lots of cute squirrels in various sets, but these originals hold my heart the tightest! I decided to focus today's card on them. I colored all my images with Copic markers, including two accessories from Cheery Christmas. 

I wanted to make a shaker card, so I die cut a window with the Stitched Circle Stackables and inlaid the Birch Trees, then filled it with sequins and Chunky Glitter. I popped up the front panel with two layers of foam tape, adhered a Stitched Hillside Border and added my images over top. For my sentiment, I added a Scripty Joy.



I also did some fun stamping on the inside but I will save that for the video, as this is also day 3 of my 2017 Holiday Card Series! Click on the YouTube icon to watch it there in HD and please don't forget to like and subscribe!


And now you'll want to hop on over to the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge Blog and check out the other amazing design team samples and link up your projects using your oldest Lawn Fawn set! I can't wait to see what you create!

2017 Holiday Card Series #2


Hey friends! I'm off to a late start today, but here at last with Day #2 of my 2017 Holiday Card Series! Today I'm featuring one of the adorable little pups from MFT's Happy Pawlidays. I colored her with Copics to look like my dad and step-mom's Westie, Angel. Such a cutie!

I die-cut a focal panel with the MFT Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX and sponged on Distress Inks to make it look like a room. Then I completed my scene by layering my images over top with either liquid glue or foam tape.


My coloring was inspired by the gorgeous Oh What Fun 6x6 by My Mind's Eye. I layered my papers over my card base and popped my focal panel over top, finishing off with a few touches of the Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Sparkle Pen. Gotta have glitter at Christmas!

I also did some fun stamping on the inside of the card, but I'll save that for the video. ;) Click the YouTube icon to watch it there in HD and please don't forget to like and subscribe!


I hope you enjoy the tutorial! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Dashing Deer Guest Design with MFT


Hey friends! I am beyond thrilled and honored to be guest designing today with My Favorite Things! I used the new Dashing Deer stamp set to create a Spotlight Shaker Scene, which is basically a mini scene within a shaker that is incorporated into a larger scene extending over the entire card front. 

The shaker was created with the Snow Globe Die-namics and matching Dome Shaker Pouches over a background using the Drifts and Hills Stencil -- so versatile! I also pulled in a few trees from Beary Big Adventure to complete the scene. I did some fun stamping on the inside as well.

I hope you enjoy the video! Subscribe to the My Favorite Things YouTube Channel for more incredible videos featuring their amazing products. And if you could, I'd love for you to leave me a comment on this video. I promise to read them all!

Have a great day! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Thanksgiving Favor - Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #15


Hey friends! Happy Monday! It's time for another Lawn Fawnatics Challenge and this time we're all about clever gift packaging! I decided to create a little treat box that would make perfect little favors for your Thanksgiving table. You could even personalize them, if you like, and use them as place cards.

I created my box with the Milk Carton die, then added a Grassy Border to the bottom and peopled it with critters and food from Forest Feast and Cheery Christmas. I popped in a few trees from Stitched Tree Borders to complete the scene.


I topped it off with a Tiny Tag and a sentiment from Tiny Tags Sayings tied on with a bit of Spooky Lawn Trimmings. You can check out how the whole box came together in the video below.
