Life's a Picnic - Lawn Fawnatics #80


Hey friends! Welcome to Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #80. This round is all about playing with our food. Haha! I adore these sweet little mice from Crazy Antics and with Independence Day just this past weekend, I thought a picnic scene would be the perfect thing. I stamped them in Jet Black Ink and colored them with Copics, then trimmed them out with the matching dies.


For my background, I took a yellow sunburst print from the Hello Sunshine Remix 6x6 pad and stamped a sentiment with Jet Black and Lobster Inks. Then I layered a piece of Noble Fir Cardstock trimmed down with the Grassy Border


I took another sheet of patterned paper and trimmed it down with the Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables, then cut a window out of it with the Small Stitched Circle Stackables. I popped that up with foam tape over the background scene and then adhered my images using the Glue Tube.

And now it's time to head over to the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge Blog and check out what the rest of the Design Team has created to inspire you! And then you can get busy playing with your own food! ;)

Birthday Fishes Card


Hey friends, today I'm back with a fun under-the-sea card for my nephew's 9th birthday. When I saw the new Sea Birthday set from Waffle Flower, I knew it would be perfect for him! I stamped the images with Lawn Fawn Jet Black Ink and colored them with Copics, them trimmed them out with the matching dies.


For the background, I used the Mini Media Mat and blended Antique Linen and Gathered Twigs Distress Oxide Ink onto a Bristol Smooth Surface panel for the sand, then used Pine NeedlesPeacock Feathers, and Speckled Egg for the sea. I added some splatter effect and a sentiment, then trimmed the panel down with the Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables. I mounted it with foam tape onto a Rainforest card base, adhered my images, and added some Glossy Accents to the bubbles as a finishing touch.

Little Things Slimline Card


Hello friends! Today I'm excited to share my first ever slimline card! I was a little intimidated to try out this new size, but I ended up really loving it! The Mama Elephant Slim Card Basics dies really did included everything I needed to make this card, aside from the cute critters, that is. For those, I used the adorable mamas and babies from Family Time. I stamped them in Lawn Fawn Jet Black Ink, colored them with Copics, and trimmed them out with the matching dies.



I created my card base by trimming my 8 1/2 x 11'' Ballet Slippers cardstock to 8 1/2 x 7'', and then scored the 7'' side at 3 1/2''. I cut the scalloped layer out of White cardstock, the hillside border out of Cilantro, and the bushes and frame from Lovely Moments 6x8'' patterned paper by Pebbles. I layered everything onto my card base and popped the frame and critters up with Foam Tape. Then I added a sentiment heat embossed sentiment using Ranger Superfine Gold Embossing Powder. As a finishing touch I added a sprinkle of Sparkling Clear Sequins and filled in the centers with Stardust Stickles.


As always, I finished off the inside of the card as well, using Lawn Fawn Bubblegum Ink, which you can check out in the video! Click below or watch on YouTube, and don't forget to like and subscribe! I thank you all for stopping by. Have an amazing day!

Rainy Day Background Card


Hey friends, happy Monday! Today I'm bringing you a card with a much requested background. I shared a card using the Hello Bluebird Rainy Day stamp set during my Rainbow & Basic Copic Color Combo Favorites video, but I had done the background off screen because the video was already long and that wasn't the focus. Well today I'm back with a new card featuring the other little girl, in combination with some images from Puddle Play.


I stamped my scene directly onto my panel with Lawn Fawn Jet Black Ink. Then I colored the images with Copics and did the background as well. I share every bit of the process in the video tutorial, so you can be coloring rainy day backgrounds like this in no time! When I was done, I trimmed the panel down with an MFT A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 2 die, then mounted it over some Simple Stories Summer Farmhouse patterned paper on a Lawn Fawn Blue Jay card base.



I really hope you enjoy the video! If you do, please remember to give it a thumbs up and subscribe! Your support means the world. Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Christy Gets Crafty with My Favorite Things - June


Hey friends, I'm so happy to be here with the June edition of Christy Gets Crafty with My Favorite Things! This month I chose to feature the adorable Sunny Vibes stamp set and create a scene where my hubby and I (in critter form) finally get to go on our dream tropical beach vacation! We were planning on celebrating that way for our 20th wedding anniversary this fall, but it looks like that's probably not going to happen thanks to the pandemic. Ah well, there's always next year, right?



So I stamped up these beachy images in Extreme Black Hybrid Ink, colored them with Copic Markers and trimmed them out with the matching dies. Then I created a background by masking off the sand, sea, and sky and sponging on Distress Oxide inks. I used Antique Linen and Gathered Twigs for the sand, Tumbled Glass and Broken China for the sea, and Tumbled Glass for the sky.


I trimmed the focal panel down with the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 2 and stamped a sentiment in the bottom right corner. Then I popped the focal panel up with foam tape on a Sno Cone card base. I adhered my images with liquid glue and added a few tiny clouds in the sky from Magical Friends to finish it up.


I really hope you enjoy the video! Please hit the thumbs up button if you do, and leave me a comment below the video on YouTube to let them know how I did! I love chatting with everyone! Thanks so much for stopping by today!
