Christy Gets Crafty with My Favorite Things - October


Another month, another edition of Christy Gets Crafty with My Favorite Things! I had such fun playing with this month's products! So much holiday goodness! The minute I saw the new Deck the Howls stamp set, I knew that was going to be my feature. I'm such a dog person!



Each one of these dogs are so cute, I couldn't decide which ones to use, so I ended up using them all! Four on the outside and one on the inside. I colored all my images with Copics and trimmed them out with the matching dies.



For my focal panel, I stamped and heat embossed the Christmas Background with Silver Pearl embossing powder onto some white cardstock for a subtle tone on tone effect. Then I die cut the Ho Ho Ho Die-namics from the center and popped it up over some patterned paper from the Candy Land Paper Pack. To finish things off, I added an additional sentiment and a little Crystal Stickles.


As I mentioned, I also did some stamping on the inside, which you can check out in the video! You can find it over on the MFT YouTube Channel or click below. And don't forget to leave me a comment and let them know how I'm doing! I really appreciate it! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Fall Fairy - Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #39


Hey friends! Happy Monday and welcome to Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #39! This round we're making blinged out projects, and what says glitter more than fairies? I decided to create a fall fairy card by combining Fairy Friends with Happy Harvest.


I colored my images with Copics and die cut them with the matching dies. For my focal panel, I die cut some Bristol Smooth Surface cardstock with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Circle Stackables, then blended on Distress Ink in Milled Lavender, Shaded Lilac, and Bundled Sage to create a twilight sky. Then I added my images with a combination of liquid glue and foam tape.


I layered my Kaisercraft Hide & Seek patterned papers onto my card base and popped my focal panel up over top. And then it was time for the bling! I added a sprinkle of Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins and Crystal Stickles to the fairy wings, lights, and sky.


I also did some stamping on the inside using Fresh Lavender ink, 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! It means so much!


And now it's time to head over to the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge Blog and check out the other amazing design team projects, and link up your own blinged out projects to play along! I can't wait to see what you create!

A Card Full of Hugs


Happy Monday, friends! Today I'm excited to share a fun card featuring Heffy Doodle stamps! They were so kind to contact me and ask if I might like to play with some of their products. Who could say no to so much cuteness?

My card features the adorable Yappy Happy Mail. These pups are so sweet, and I just had to color this one to look like my dog, Zadie.


I trimmed my images out with the matching dies and created a background for them using the MFT Cloud and Drifts & Hills Stencils and Tumbled Glass and Bundled Sage Distress Ink.

I used a postage edge die to trim out my panel and popped it up with foam tape over a red cardstock panel. To embellish the card base, I took all the envelopes, hearts, and paw prints images and stamped them around the edge with Lawn Fawn Deep Sea Ink. I added a two-part sentiment, using the Heffy Doodle Sending die cut from the same red cardstock as the middle panel.


I finished off the inside with some additional stamping 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! It means the world!



Thanks so much for stopping by!

Lift-the-Flap Fall - Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #38


Hey friends! Welcome to Lawn Fawnatics Chalenge #38! This round we are inspired by the season. I always get excited for fall because it means I can pull out one of my all-time favorite stamp sets, Jump for Joy.


I combined it with the baby critters from Mom + Me, colored all my images with Copics to match my patterned paper, and trimmed them out with the matching dies.

For my focal panel, I used the Stitched Journaling Card die for the sky, and Stitched Hillside Borders for the grass. I die cut my leaf pile out of the green, leaving the left side attached to create a little flap. This was totally inspired by the lift-the-flap board books my boys used to love when they were little!


Then I glued my leaf pile over top and added the rest of my images around the pile and hiding my baby critters inside.  I used Merman ink to stamp my sentiment. 

I popped the focal panel up with foam tape over my patterned papers which I trimmed down using the Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables.


I finished off the card with some fun stamping on the inside in Walnut ink, 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! 



And now it's time to head over to the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge Blog and check out the other amazing design team samples, and link up your Awesome Autumn projects to play along! I can't wait to see what you create!
