Mice Day to Celebrate Card Duo

 Hey friends, today I'm bringing you TWO cards, which we came up with in my previous Plan 2 Cards with Me Video. Today we are putting those plans into action and creating cards using the adorable BB Mice Day to Celebrate by MFT stamp set. These little mice are just so cute and make the perfect birthday cards. I colored them all with Copics and trimmed them out with the matching dies.

For the focal panels, I trimmed down white cardstock with the MFT Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 2, and blended a little Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide Ink in the center, then stamped a sentiment at the bottom. I layered patterned paper on the card fronts and popped the focal panels up with foam tape, then finished with some Stardust Stickles.

If you'd like to see how the cards came together, you can check out the video tutorial HERE on my YouTube channel. Thank you so much for watching! Enjoy!

Plan 2 Cards with Me - Mice Day to Celebrate

 Hey friends! Today I'm back with my monthly Plan a Card with Me Series, where I take you behind the scenes and show you what goes on in my brain as I'm coming up with a card concept. This month I'm creating TWO cards at once, because the images were so cute that I couldn't do just one. I'm using the MFT Mice Day to Celebrate stamp set and of course, some patterned paper. All supplies will be linked in the description bar on YouTube beneath the video, which you can find HERE on my channel. I hope you enjoy it!

Capybara Collage Card

Hey friends, it's Christy with a fun collage card using the Mama Elephant Little Capybara Agenda stamp set. These critters are so incredibly cute and there are so many to choose from. I  stamped them out in Lawn Fawn Jet Black Ink on Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth White Cardstock, colored them with Copic markers, and trimmed them out with the matching dies.

For the background, I took a sheet of Bristol Smooth Surface Cardstock and laid the MFT Verticle Collage Cover-up over top to use like a stencil. Then I did a quick watercolor background using Salvaged PatinaTwisted Citron, and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide Ink. Once that was dry, I stamped my sentiment in Lawn Fawn Walnut Ink.

I cut the die from Light Brown Woodgrain Cardstock and popped it up over the background with foam tape, then glued the focal panel to a Chocolate Bar card base. I popped up my images as well, and finished with a bit of Stardust Stickles. If you'd like to see how the card came together, you can find the video tutorial on my YouTube channel HERE. Thanks so much for watching! I really hope you enjoy it!

Berry Grape Birthday Card - Lawn Fawnatics #176

Hey friends, it's time for another Lawn Fawnatics Challenge and this time we're having Fun with Food! I thought this was the perfect opportunity to use the new grape image from the Year Fourteen stamp set. I love a good pun, and while this one was great on it's own, I decided to take it to the next level by combining it with the strawberries from Berry Special.

After I colored the images with Copic markers and trimmed them out with the matching dies, it was time to work on the focal panel. I used the Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables to trim down a piece of Bristol Cardstock. Then I blended on Distress Oxide Inks in Worn Lipstick and Shaded Lilac. I did some splatter detail and adhered it to a Sugarplum card base.

Then I cut out a white Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Frame and trimmed down a striped piece of Rainbow Ever After 6x6 paper to fit behind. I also die cut the word "BERRY" from some Guava Cardstock using Finley's ABCs and stamped the rest of the phrase on an Everyday Sentiment Banner in Juice Box Ink. I finished the card with a few Clear Sequins and some Stardust Stickles.

If you'd like to see how this card came together, you can find the video tutorial HERE on my YouTube channel. Don't forget to stop by the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge blog and check out the card samples from the rest of the design team, and to link up your own Fun with Food projects to play along. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Six to a Dozen (or More) Ways to Color Dogs

 Hey friends, today I've got another critter coloring video. Since I showed you six to a dozen (or more) ways to color cats last time, I thought it was only fair that I did dogs next. It was a little bit trickier to figure out how to do this video, since cats pretty much come in the same shape and size, but dogs definitely do not. But the one time in a dog's life when they do look more similar is when they are puppies, so I've got six to a dozen examples of how you can color your dogs, which ultimately you can mix and match with different colors and patterns to create endless possibilities. I'm illustrating these using a dog from the Lawn Fawn Furry and Bright stamp set, stamped in Jet Black Ink on Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth White Cardstock. I really hope that you find this video helpful for your own card making designs! You can check it out HERE on my YouTube channel.

Ice Cream Birthday Card - Lawn Fawn Feature

Hey friends, today I'm so excited to be featured over on the Lawn Fawn blog and YouTube channel with a card combining two brand-new stamp sets, Treat Cart and Whoosh, Kites. Those adorable mice looked so cute flying their kites, but I thought it might be nice to let them have some sweet treats after their day in the sun! I'll have all other supplies and details in my post over there, so I hope you'll check that out. And if you'd like to see how the card came together, please watch the video tutorial. I really hope you enjoy it! Thanks so much for stopping by!
