Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #19 + Holiday Card Series #12


Hey friends, happy Monday and welcome to Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #19! This round we are using our favorite Lawn Fawn sets, and one of my most favorites for the holidays is Baaah Humbug. I love these sweet sheep!


I colored my images with Copic markers and then added some yummy texture with a Snow Marker. It really looks like wool! I thought the Knit Picky 6x6 were the perfect patterned papers to go with this set. Talk about a match made in crafty heaven! 


I die cut my focal panel with the Stitched Oval Stackables and my outer layer of patterned paper with the Outside In Stitched Rectangles, and added my sentiment with an Everyday Banner to complete my card. And I actually made two versions, one with black face sheep (my favorite) and one with regular. Which one do you like best?


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

Deer Friend - Holiday Card Series #11


Hi friends! Today I'm excited to bring you Day 11 in my Holiday Card Series, and this one is a bonus, because it's not just one card, or even two. It's FOUR cards, each unique, but using the exact same supplies, including this sweet  Nice List stamp set by Craftin' Desert Divas.


I colored these adorable reindeer to match the patterned paper in A Perfect Christmas 6x6 by Echo Park. Then I die cut my papers using MFT's Wonky Stitched Rectangles, and Pretty Pink Posh's Stitched Banner Duo. I trimmed out my focal panels with MFT's Wonky Stitched Circles and popped them over top with foam tape.


Last but not least, I finished things off by adding a few dots of Duck Egg Blue Nuvo Drops to resemble falling snow. They're such a pretty pale blue, and I think they add a subtle touch of dimension and color against the white background.

Get Yeti - Holiday Card Series #10


Hey friends, happy Friday! Today I'm happy to bring you Day 10 of my 2017 Holiday Card Series, featuring the adorable Get Yeti stamp set by Neat & Tangled.

I wanted to create a scene card using my Koi Sketchbook Watercolors. I started by painting my background, then flicking on some Copic Opaque White for snow. Then I watercolored all my images and cut them out with the matching dies.


For my scene, I trimmed down the panel and added two snowbanks with the Wplus9 Landscape Borders and added all my elements. I mounted it on a card base made from Blue Jay cardstock from Lawn Fawn

To finish up, I sprinkled a few Studio Katia Snow Crystals and Iridescent Crystals and adhered them down with Ranger Multi Medium Matte.

I also did some fun stamping on the inside with Blue Jay ink, but I'll save that for the video. ;) To watch the whole process, click on the YouTube icon at the bottom right corner and don't forget to like and subscribe! It really helps me out!

Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #18 + Holiday Card Series #9


Hey friends, happy Monday! And welcome to Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #18! This round is all about emboss resist, which is a super fun technique. For my card, I just had to use the brand-new exclusive One in a Chameleon Black Friday exclusive freebie. Isn't he the cutest? I paired him with a few accessories from Baaah Humbug to help him get in the festive mood. ;)


For the emboss resist, I heat embossed the falling snow from Snow Cool, then sponged on Distress Ink to create a night sky. I framed that up by cutting a window out of Perfectly Plaid Winter papers using the Stitched Circle Stackables and Stitched Rectangle Stackables. For my sentiment, I used a banner from Bannertastic with a Cozy Christmas greeting.


To finish things off I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Snowflake Sequins, a bit of Crystal Stckles and a few dabs of Glossy Accents. I also did some fun stamping on the inside, but I'll save that for the video.

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!

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!

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!

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.

Teddy Bear Picnic - Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #14


Hey friends! I'm super excited to bring you my card for Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #14. Our theme is happy little critters, and tell me, what could possibly be happier than a teddy bear picnic? I've had this idea in my head for a really long time (YEARS!) but I've just been waiting for the right images that would bring my idea together. As soon as I saw the latest Lawn Fawn release, I knew I could make it happen!


On this card, I combined the tree stump table from Forst Feast, the bears from Beary Happy Holidays and For You, Deer, plus lots of picnic-y elements from Happy Harvest and Bicycle Built for You. My sky was die-cut with a Stitched Rectangle Stackables and I added a Grassy Border and created bushes by flipping the Puffy Cloud Borders upside down. I brought in a sentiment from Dad + Me stamped in Chili Pepper ink, die cut with an Everyday Sentiment Banner. And as a finishing touch, I dabbed on a bit of Crystal Stickles Glitter Glue.


I also did some fun stamping on the inside with Doe ink, but I'll save that for the video. Click on the YouTube icon at the bottom right to watch it there in HD, and please don't forget to show your support by clicking the thumbs up button and subscribing to my channel. It means so much!

Happy Harvest Sunset - Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #13


Hey friends, happy Monday! It's time for another Lawn Fawnatics Challenge and this time we've got a gorgeous mood board for you. Be inspired by the beautiful photos, color combo, or if you're like me -- both! 

I wanted to create a fun fall sunset scene, and I invited a whole slew of critters from Jump for JoyForest Feast, and Happy Harvest to the party! I colored them all in with Copic markers, and threw in a few pumpkins and leaves for good measure.


The sunset was created by blending some Distress inks  in yellows and pinks on some Bristol Smooth cardstock, and I add some depth and dimension with the Stitched Tree Border and Stitched Hillside Border, and layered on my elements with liquid glue or foam tape.


All supplies are listed and linked in the description bar below the video. Click on the YouTube icon to watch it there in HD, and don't forget to like and subscribe! Your support sure means a lot.

Right At Home & MISTI Blog Hop


Hey friends! Welcome to the Right at Home/My Sweet Petunia Blog Hop! You should have come here from Stephanie's Blog, but not to worry! If you're just popping in here I'll have the entire list of hop participants down below.

The Right At Home Anemones is a three-step stamp set with so many options! For my card today, I decided to just use the outline images and do a loose watercolor with Distress Inks. The Mini MISTI came in so handy for lining everything up and making sure my stamping lines were nice and bold for heat embossing.


To finish things off, I added a two-part greeting from Fall Sentiments, layered my focal panel on some pretty patterned papers, and scattered a few clear sequins throughout.


I also finished off the inside, but I'll save that for the video. ;) Just click the play button below, or the YouTube icon at the bottom right corner to watch it there in HD. I hope you'll also consider subscribing if you like what you see. :)


You've nearly made it to the end of the hop! All that's left is to head over to My Sweet Petunia where they'll close things out. But be sure to go back to the beginning if you're just getting started! Leave a comment at every stop to be eligible to win one of TWO great prizes: winners choice of an Original or Mini MISTI, and a prize package from Right at Home! The deadline is September 8th at Noon (Central), and the winners will be posted on the Right at Home and My Sweet Petunia blogs on Tuesday September 12th. 

Have an amazing day!
