Christy Gets Crafty with My Favorite Things - September


Well hello there! I'm so excited to be bringing you the September edition of Christy Gets Crafty with My Favorite Things! Seriously, I always get so stoked each and every month to bring you what I've been working on for this amazing company!


This round I just absolutely fell in love with the new Birdie Brown set Sweater Weather in the Woods. Could these cozy critters get any cuter? Gah! I just love them! I had such a blast coloring them up with my Copic markers. I was totally in the zone! I also brought in some pumpkins from Birdie Brown Fall Friends and leaves from Pure Innocence Sending Blessings. When I was done, I trimmed them out with the matching dies.



For my background, I cut down two sheets of Watercolor Wash 6x6 patterned paper. I used the Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX to trim down the pale aqua and the Grassy Hills Die-namics on the green. Then I added all my images and stamped my sentiment in brown ink.

On my Kraft card base I stamped the leaves once again, along with the little coffee swirl to look like gusts of wind. Then I layered two pieces of Sweet Celebration 6x6 paper across the center and used foam tape to pop up my focal panel.


I also finished off the inside with a bit more stamping, which you can check out in the video on the My Favorite Things YouTube Channel. I sure hope you enjoy it! And be sure to hit that thumbs up button and leave me a comment if you did! Thanks so much for visiting today!

Hello Jungle Friend


Drumroll please.... Today I'm excited to bring you a card that many of you have expressed an interest in seeing. This was one that I created during The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge and showcased in the Card Share Video where I confessed my tendency to never create cards with the images colored during the challenge. This year I vowed to be different, and so I created 24 cards with the images I colored during those 30 days. This particular one was my personal favorite, and it appeared to be the viewers as well! I had many requests to recreate it for a video, and that's what I'm bringing you today.


I started by stamping out my images from Hello Bluebird Portrait Pals and colored them with Copic markers. I stamped out multiples of the leaves and used four different green color combos to give them lots of variety. Then I trimmed everything out with the matching dies.

For the background, I scribbled some green Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens onto an acrylic block and watercolored it onto some Bristol Smooth Surface Cardstock. Then I die cut the Gallery Frame 2 out of white cardstock and popped it up with foam tape over the background.

I added my critters with foam tape and the leaves with liquid glue, then finished it off with a hello die cut from Gallery Frame 1 and a heat embossed sentiment from Deer Friend. I also finished off the inside with stamping from Jungle Littles and Lawn Fawn JalepeƱo ink.

Friends Furever - Lawn Fawnatics #60


Hey friends! Happy Labor Day to everyone in the States, and welcome to Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #60! This round is all about one of my absolute favorite styles of cards to make -- scene cards! I just love combining a whole bunch of images from different sets and combining them on a card. And that's exactly what I did today!


I started out by stamping my images from Meow You Doin'Keep on SwimmingCritters at the Dog ParkWheelie Like You, and Critters on the Farm. I colored them all in with Copic markers and trimmed them out with the matching dies. I also gave a little shine mark to the fish bowl with a white gel pen.



For my background, I used two pieces of Perfectly Plaid Chill 6x6 patterned papers trimmed down with the Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables to make up my wallpaper and floor. Then I added a thin white strip of cardstock for the baseboard. I trimmed a mouse hole out using a window from Build-A-House, then backed it with Narwhal cardstock, darkened a bit with a Copic marker.

I adhered my images with foam tape and added the panel to a Mermaid card base. To finish it off, I added my sentiment, die-cut with an Everyday Sentiment Banner.


These playful pets sure are having a ball while their people are away! If you'd like to see how this card came together, click below or watch on YouTube in HD. I'd love for you to hit that thumbs up button and subscribe if you enjoyed the video!

Christy Gets Crafty with My Favorite Things - August


Hey friends! It's time for the August edition of Christy Gets Crafty with My Favorite Things! I am super duper excited to bring you this month's card because SQUIRRELS! Anyone who knows me well, knows that I absolutely adore squirrels so I maybe (definitely) squealed a little bit (a lot) when I saw the new Squirrel! stamp set by Birdie Brown. Aren't they just the cutest?!


I started by stamping out my images in Black Licorice Hybrid Ink, then coloring them with Copic markers. I shared all the shades I used in the video, so be sure to check that out at the end. Then I cut the images out with the matching dies.



For the background, I used the Cloud Stencil (one of the most used tools in my craft room) and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink to create my sky. Then I blended Bundled Sage onto an extra panel and trimmed it down with the Tucked-In-Turf Vertical Die-namics. I popped that up with foam tape, and then added all my cute little squirrels to my scene. To finish it off, I adhered a sentiment stamped on an Essential Slanted Sentiment Strip.

Bring Me A Dream - Lawn Fawnatics #59


Today I'm here to make all your dreams come true! Or rather, Mr. Sandman is. ;) Welcome to Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #59! This one is so much fun, because it's all about Something See Through! Interpret that in any way that you like on your project, whether it be cut-outs, acetate, the possibilities are endless!


For my card, I had the idea to take one of the Gnomes from Oh Gnome! and turn him into the Sandman. To do this, I started by masking off the edges of his hat and stamping little stars from Upon a Star on it. I also stamped out the net from Butterfly Kisses, and the teddy from Holiday Helpers, and additional stars from Critters Ever After and A Birdie Told Me. I colored all the images with Copics and trimmed them out with the matching dies.


I needed a large moon, so I made one using two Stitched Circle Stackables and colored it with Squeezed Lemonade and Mustard Seed Distress Oxide Ink. Then I created a background with Shaded LilacBlueprint Sketch, and Dusty Concord. I trimmed out two layers of clouds using the Puffy Cloud Borders, one out of white cardstock, and one from Vellum. I stamped my sentiment on the white one in Juice Box ink.

I layered the vellum cloud border first on my background, then popped the white one up with Foam Tape. I popped my moon up as well and nestled it between the two clouds. Then I added my sandman with his teddy and his net of dreams and filled my sky with stars. As a finishing touch, I also sprinkled in a bit of Iridescent Mini Star Confetti.
