Christy Gets Crafty with My Favorite Things - October

Hello and welcome to the October edition of Christy Gets Crafty with My Favorite Things! This month I could not decide between the adorable Festive Friends and Reindeer Games so I combined them! Can you blame me? So cute! 

I stamped out my images with Black Licorice Hybrid Ink, colored them in with Copics, and trimmed them out with the matching dies.  Then I created a nighttime wintry scene for them to live in by blending Distress Oxide Inks onto Bristol Smooth Surface Cardstock. I used the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 2 to cut down the sky and the Hit the Slopes Die-namics for the snowdrifts.

I heat white heat embossed my sentiment so it would pop against the sky, then I popped up my front snowdrift with foam tape and added my images to the scene. I matted the focal panel onto some Black Licorice Cardstock and adhered that to the card base. As a finishing touch, I glitzed things up with a little Crystal Stickles.

I hope you'll check out the video to watch how this card came together. I had such fun creating it for you! Click the play button below or watch on the My Favorite Things YouTube Channel! I hope you'll hit that thumbs up button and leave me some love too! I love interacting with you guys and listening to your feedback.

Fall Friendship Scene

Hey friends! It's Monday, which means another card and video for y'all! I'm super excited about this one because SQUIRRELS! You all know how much I love them and these guys from the Hello Bluebird Oh Nuts! stamp set are some of the cutest I've ever seen!

So I colored my images with my go-to Copics and trimmed them out with the matching dies. Then I die-cut the Oak Tree Scene out of Bristol Smooth Surface and colored in the individual pieces with Distress Inks. Still totally feeling those fall vibes!

I stamped a sentiment and adhered my images with liquid glue -- this one is nice and flat for mailing! Then I added a few details with a white gel pen on the mushrooms and crystal stickles to the leaves, treetop, and the squirrels noses.

I'm super happy with how this one came out, and I hope that you are too! If you'd like to see how it came together, click below or watch in HD on YouTube. And don't forget to like and subscribe! I hope you all have an amazing day!

Purr-Fect Halloween - Lawn Fawnatics #62

Hey all! Welcome to another fun Lawn Fawnatics Challenge! This round we've got a gorgeous Halloween inspiration photo for you! You can choose to incorporate the design, the colors, which ever moves you to create. I personally was inspired by ALL of it for my card, featuring the Spooktacular stamp set.

I stamped and colored my images with Copic markers, including the crows and a few pumpkins from Happy Harvest, then cut everything out with the matching dies. For my background, I masked a circle using the Circle Stackables on some Bristol Smooth Surface cardstock and sponged on Distress Inks and spritzed with Perfect Pearls to give it a pearlescent sheen. I peeled off the mask, and added detail to my moon with Copics.

For the ground, I trimmed a Stitched Hillside Border out of Black Licorice cardstock and spritzed that with the Perfect Pearls as well. To help the sky look extra dark and creepy, I die cut a few Spring Showers clouds out of Narwhal cardstock and sponged them with white pigment ink to reflect the glow of the moon. I added my images and finished off the card with some white gel pen stars in the sky, Spectrum Noir Clear Glitter Overlay Pen on a few details, and a sentiment.

Pumpkin Patch Pals

Happy Monday, friends! How are you on this fine, fall day? Here in Northwestern, PA, the air is a little bit crisper and the leaves have begun to change. I wish I could hit a pause button and make days like this last a whole lot longer. I was definitely feeling that Autumn vibe when I created this card using Hello Bluebird Fall Buddies. I love these little critters and decided to put them all together in a pumpkin patch.

I colored them all in with Copics and trimmed them out with the matching dies. Then I made a quick and easy watercolor background using some Zigs. I have another video tutorial on how to do this here. I trimmed the sky portion down with the MFT Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX and the grasses with the MFT Grassy Hills Die-namics. I adhered the taller grass border with liquid glue, and the shorter one with foam tape, then added my critters and pumpkins and leaves with a combination of the two.

I layered my Echo Park My Favorite Fall 6x6 patterned papers onto a Lawn Fawn Speckled Eggshell card base and popped up my focal panel with more foam tape. I finished it off with a speech bubble sentiment stamped in Versafine Onyx Black ink, and stamped the inside of the card with Lawn Fawn Fake Tan.

Gather Happy Moments

Hey friends! Happy Monday! Today I wanted to share with you a card I made using some sweet Hello Bluebird sets -- the critters from Fly a Kite and the leaves from Woodland Littles. I wanted to mix things up and create a fall card using a spring set, a fall set, and a summer die!

I colored my images with Copic markers and trimmed them out with the matching dies. Then I took the Ocean Scene die and flipped it completely to create a little park scene instead. My clouds became bushes, the water became grass, and the waves turned into a little path. The perfect place for my happy little critters to hang out and chase leaves. Don't you just want to join them?

For a complete supply list, check out the description box below the video on YouTube. And if you'd like to give a thumbs up and subscribe, I would surely appreciate it! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Mice Friends - Lawn Fawnatics #61

Hey friends! Welcome to Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #61! We are totally feeling the Autumn vibes and that's what this round is all about. For my card, I really wanted to use the new Mice on Ice, but on a fall card, rather than a Christmas one. So I colored them with Copics and trimmed them out with the matching dies. Then took a white gel pen and "erased" the ice skates and fussy cut them off. Viola! You'd never even know the skates were there.

For my background, I took a aqua Stitched Circle Stackable and layered on the Stitched Tree Border cut from Ground Coffee cardstock. I cut the tops out of the different leaf prints in the Fall Fling 6x6 pad. Then I cut some Noble Fir cardstock with the Stitched Hillside Border, stamped my sentiment from Jump for Joy in Noble Fir ink, and adhered that to the bottom of the scene. I also added in a small white cloud from Spring Showers and, of course, my little mice.

I layered more of the Fall Fling 6x6 patterned papers onto a Speckled Eggshell card base and used the Stitched Party Banners die to selectively die cut the end of the golden leaf print. The focal panel I adhered with foam tape for added dimension. I finished off the inside with a Reveal Wheel Sentiments in Doe ink, which you can check out in the video.
