I Pick You Card - Lawn Fawnatics #133

Hey friends, happy Monday! And welcome to another Lawn Fawnatics Challenge! This round is all about Awesome Autumn, so of course I had to pull out the Apple-solutely Awesome stamp set again, for another apple-picking scene. My apple tree is bursting this year, and I'm so excited to live this out in real life very soon! For this card, I added in images from Berry SpecialA Creature Was Stirring, and Tea-rrific Day. I colored them all with Copics and trimmed them out with the matching dies.

For the background, I first blended a piece of Bristol Cardstock with Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide Ink using the Cloudy Stencil for my sky. Then I die cut the Meadow Backdrop: Portrait out of more Bristol, masked off the top edges, and blended on Twisted CitronMowed Lawn, and Pine Needles Distress Oxide Ink. I popped that up with foam tape over the sky, and adhered my images, finishing with an Everyday Sentiment Banner and some Stardust Stickles.

Christy Gets Crafty with My Favorite Things - September

Hey friends, today I'm excited to share with you the September edition of Christy Gets Crafty with My Favorite Things! I just fell in love with the new Christmas Tree Farm stamp set by Stacey Yacula! It immediately put me in a festive mood, and I knew I had to use it. I stamped all the images out with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink, colored them with Copic markers, and trimmed them out with the matching dies.

For the background, I cut down a piece of Bristol Smooth Surface Cardstock with the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 2, and another with the Stitched Slimline Snowdrifts, and blended on some Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide Ink. I also splattered on some Gansai Tambi Starry Colors for a pearlized sheen. Then I stamped my sentiment at the bottom of the snow drift. I glued some Cheerful Plaid patterned paper to a Caribbean Sea card base, popped up my focal panel, and adhered my images. Then I finished with a sprinkle of clear sequins.

Hello friends! Boy oh boy, I am so excited for today! I'm taking part in the Mama Elephant 10th Anniversary Stampede, helping them celebrate ten incredible years in the crafting industry! This is Day 2, and there is going to be so much inspiration, along with prizes and giveaways, so make sure you scroll all the way to the bottom when you're done for all the details.

For this card, I used the super adorable Oh Friendship Tree stamp set. I love how inclusive this large image is -- it's got all the critters! And it's super fun to color, no matter which medium you use. I chose Copic markers, and trimmed it out with the matching dies.

Rainbow Sparkles Card - Lawn Fawnatics #132

Hey friends, welcome to the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #132! This round we've got a gorgeous rainbow color inspiration photo for you, and I don't know about you, but my mind immediately went to craft supplies. I knew it was the perfect time to ink up the Lawn Fawn Just Add Glitter stamp set. I also added in a shelf from Purrfectly Wicked and a rug from Christmas Dreams. I colored all the images with Copic markers in rainbow colors and trimmed them out with the matching dies.

To create my craft room, I first took some patterned paper from the Flower Market 6x6. I went with a small gray floral print so it wouldn't be too distracting from all the rainbow elements. After all, we usually get gray skies before a rainbow! I also cut down some White Woodgrain Cardstock for the floor, and a thin strip of plain white cardstock for the baseboard. I adhered all of this to a Guava card base, and arranged my images in the scene as well.

For the sentiment, I used Finley's ABCs to die cut the word "sparkle" out of colored cardstock. I used RaspberryBarn RedFake TanSticky NoteCilantroPeacockBlue Jay, and Sugarplum. The rest of the sentiment I stamped in Jet Black Ink on white cardstock, and trimmed down with the Everyday Sentiment Banners. To finish things up, I added some Stardust Stickles.

To see how this card came together, click below or watch on YouTube, and don't forget to like and subscribe! Then you can head on over to the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge Blog to see what the rest of the design team has created to inspire you. We hope you'll join in the rainbow fun!
