2023 Valentine Card Series #6 - Lawn Fawnatics Feature

Hello friends! Today I'm over on the Lawn Fawnatics blog with another card for our Lots of Heart Challenge! For this one I had to dust off my bats again from Fangtastic Friends. I just love them and don't want them to just be relegated to Halloween! I combined them with images from Wood You Be Mine? and the Scent with Love Add-on to bring the Valentine flair.  All other info will be listed and linked in my other post, so please check it out!

This is also Day 6 of my 2023 Valentine Card Series! To view it, you can click the thumbnail below or find it here on YouTube. I really hope you enjoy it! Thanks so much for watching!

Art Journal with Me #13 - Shine Like the Universe is Yours

Hey friends, today I'm here with the first Art Journal with Me video of 2023! After starting in January of 2022, I've now completed an entire year of art journaling and I still love it! It's such a freeing art style. For this spread, I'm taking you out of this world, with a bit of a space theme using the Stamperia Cosmos 8x8 pad in my Square Watercolor Journal.

I also used a bunch of different ephemera, including washi tapewashi tape tickets, and various junk journal supplies to build up the layers and add texture. I used the Lawn Fawn Nighttime Stencil to add some stars with Gold Stencil Paste, and the Faber Castell Iridescent Gelatos to bring some color. And of course I used my Tim Holtz Ideology Small Talk stickers for the title.

If you'd like to create along side me or just hang out for an hour and chill, grab yourself a drink and a snack or some supplies and click below, or find the video here on YouTube. Don't forget to like and subscribe and leave me a comment so we can chat! I hope to see you there!

Christy Gets Crafty with My Favorite Things - January

Hey friends, I'm back with my second video of the day, this one over on the MFT Stamps YouTube Channel. That's right, it's time for the January edition of Christy Gets Crafty with My Favorite Things! I was so excited to be asked back for another year, and I was feeling the love with this card, starring the new YUZU Hunny Bunny stamp set. Isn't it darling? I wanted to go for a coral and lavender color palette on this one, so I colored the images with Copic marker and trimmed them out with the matching dies.

For the background, I tool a panel of Bristol Smooth Surface cardstock and blended on Distress Oxide Inks in Shaded Lilac and Dusty Concord. Then I trimmed it down with the Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX. I glued that down to a Grapesicle card base, then popped my images up with foam tape. To finish this one off, I added an Essential Stitched Sentiment Strip, some iridescent heart confetti, and a little Stardust Stickles.

If you'd like to see how this card came together, you can click below or watch on the MFT Stamps YouTube channel. I really hope you enjoy it! Make sure to leave me a comment below the video. I love hearing from you all! Thanks so much, and have a wonderful day!

2023 Valentine Card Series #3 - Lawn Fawnatics #141

Hello friends, welcome to another Lawn Fawnatics Challenge! This round is about having Lots of Heart. For this one I wanted to feature the adorable octopuses from Ocean Shell-fie. I love them so much! I colored them and a few of the scene-building images from You Are Sublime and Mermaid for You with Copic markers and trimmed the out with the matching dies. 

For the background, I blended Distress Oxide Inks onto Bristol Smooth Surface Cardstock, using Tumbled Glass and Stormy Sky for the ocean. I also used the stormy sky to stamp bubbles all over. Then I trimmed down two more pieces of Bristol with the Stitched Hillside Borders and blended on Antique Linen and Gathered Twigs for the sand.

I also die cut the new Heart Garland Backdrop: Portrait out of white cardstock and colored the hearts with Copics to match the pink octopus. I added the background to a Ballet Slippers card base, glued the frame over top, and adhered my images. I finished this card with a stamped sentiment and a little Stardust Stickles for some sparkle and shine.

This card is also Day 3 of my 2023 Valentine Card Series! So if you'd like to see how it all came together, click below or watch on YouTube. And don't forget to like and subscribe!

2023 Valentine Card Series #2

Hey friends, today I'm excited to bring you Day 2 of my 2023 Valentine Card Series! For this card, I'm using an oldie but a goodie, with Hello Bluebird Otter Friends and combining it with a few scene building elements from the newer Sea Friends to freshen it up. I just love these adorable otters and I thought it would be fun to create an underwater scene with them. I colored them with Copic markers and trimmed them out with the matching dies.

For the background, I blended Distress Oxide Inks onto Bristol Smooth Surface Cardstock. I started at the bottom with Antique Linen and Gathered Twigs for the sand, and then blended bottom to top using Speckled EggStormy Sky, and Chipped Sapphire for the sea. I stamped heart bubbles all over the background in white ink to bring home the Valentine theme. Then I added that panel to a Lawn Fawn Ballet Slippers card base, and popped up a Hello Bluebird Gallery Frame #4 in Guava Cardstock over top. I stamped a sentiment, added my images, and finished with some Stardust Stickles.
