Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #17 + Holiday Card Series #7


Hey friends, happy Monday! Welcome to Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #17. Today we've got a lovely color inspiration for you. For my card I used the sweet Christmas Dreams and made a little scene featuring my own dog, Zadie!


I colored my images with Copics and cut them out with the matching dies, and layered them over my patterned paper to create my dreamy holiday scene. To add a bit of glitz and glimmer, I dabbed some Crystal Stickles here and there across the card front.


I also did some fun stamping on the inside, but I'll save that for the video. ;) This card is also Day 7 in my 2017 Holiday Card Series! Click on the YouTube icon to watch it there in HD, and don't forget to show your support by liking and subscribing!

Christmas Bear - Holiday Card Series #6


Hey friends, today I'm happy to bring you Day 6 of my 2017 Holiday Card Series! Today I'm using this sweet Christmas Bear from Reverse Confetti. Isn't he just the cutest? I watercolored him with my Zigs and layered him up with some foam tape over Photoplay Mad 4 Plaid Christmas paper. This was a new company to me, but I totally love it! And I die cut them with the Mama Elephant Peek A Frames. To finish things off, I added a few Studio Calico snowflake and star wood veneers that I had in my stash.

Lawn Fawnatics Chalenge #16 and 2017 Holiday Card Series #3


Hello crafty friends! It's time for Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #16 which is a fun one! It's all about using your oldest Lawn Fawn set. I have been in love with Lawn Fawn since the very beginning, so my oldest set is the timeless Critters in the 'Burbs, which just happens to include my favorite image of all time, the squirrel! Lawn Fawn has lots of cute squirrels in various sets, but these originals hold my heart the tightest! I decided to focus today's card on them. I colored all my images with Copic markers, including two accessories from Cheery Christmas. 

I wanted to make a shaker card, so I die cut a window with the Stitched Circle Stackables and inlaid the Birch Trees, then filled it with sequins and Chunky Glitter. I popped up the front panel with two layers of foam tape, adhered a Stitched Hillside Border and added my images over top. For my sentiment, I added a Scripty Joy.



I also did some fun stamping on the inside but I will save that for the video, as this is also day 3 of my 2017 Holiday Card Series! Click on the YouTube icon to watch it there in HD and please don't forget to like and subscribe!


And now you'll want to hop on over to the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge Blog and check out the other amazing design team samples and link up your projects using your oldest Lawn Fawn set! I can't wait to see what you create!

2017 Holiday Card Series #2


Hey friends! I'm off to a late start today, but here at last with Day #2 of my 2017 Holiday Card Series! Today I'm featuring one of the adorable little pups from MFT's Happy Pawlidays. I colored her with Copics to look like my dad and step-mom's Westie, Angel. Such a cutie!

I die-cut a focal panel with the MFT Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX and sponged on Distress Inks to make it look like a room. Then I completed my scene by layering my images over top with either liquid glue or foam tape.


My coloring was inspired by the gorgeous Oh What Fun 6x6 by My Mind's Eye. I layered my papers over my card base and popped my focal panel over top, finishing off with a few touches of the Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Sparkle Pen. Gotta have glitter at Christmas!

I also did some fun stamping on the inside of the card, but I'll save that for the video. ;) Click the YouTube icon to watch it there in HD and please don't forget to like and subscribe!

Dashing Deer Guest Design with MFT


Hey friends! I am beyond thrilled and honored to be guest designing today with My Favorite Things! I used the new Dashing Deer stamp set to create a Spotlight Shaker Scene, which is basically a mini scene within a shaker that is incorporated into a larger scene extending over the entire card front. 

The shaker was created with the Snow Globe Die-namics and matching Dome Shaker Pouches over a background using the Drifts and Hills Stencil -- so versatile! I also pulled in a few trees from Beary Big Adventure to complete the scene. I did some fun stamping on the inside as well.

Thanksgiving Favor - Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #15


Hey friends! Happy Monday! It's time for another Lawn Fawnatics Challenge and this time we're all about clever gift packaging! I decided to create a little treat box that would make perfect little favors for your Thanksgiving table. You could even personalize them, if you like, and use them as place cards.

I created my box with the Milk Carton die, then added a Grassy Border to the bottom and peopled it with critters and food from Forest Feast and Cheery Christmas. I popped in a few trees from Stitched Tree Borders to complete the scene.


I topped it off with a Tiny Tag and a sentiment from Tiny Tags Sayings tied on with a bit of Spooky Lawn Trimmings. You can check out how the whole box came together in the video below.

Teddy Bear Picnic - Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #14


Hey friends! I'm super excited to bring you my card for Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #14. Our theme is happy little critters, and tell me, what could possibly be happier than a teddy bear picnic? I've had this idea in my head for a really long time (YEARS!) but I've just been waiting for the right images that would bring my idea together. As soon as I saw the latest Lawn Fawn release, I knew I could make it happen!


On this card, I combined the tree stump table from Forst Feast, the bears from Beary Happy Holidays and For You, Deer, plus lots of picnic-y elements from Happy Harvest and Bicycle Built for You. My sky was die-cut with a Stitched Rectangle Stackables and I added a Grassy Border and created bushes by flipping the Puffy Cloud Borders upside down. I brought in a sentiment from Dad + Me stamped in Chili Pepper ink, die cut with an Everyday Sentiment Banner. And as a finishing touch, I dabbed on a bit of Crystal Stickles Glitter Glue.


I also did some fun stamping on the inside with Doe ink, but I'll save that for the video. Click on the YouTube icon at the bottom right to watch it there in HD, and please don't forget to show your support by clicking the thumbs up button and subscribing to my channel. It means so much!

Happy Harvest Sunset - Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #13


Hey friends, happy Monday! It's time for another Lawn Fawnatics Challenge and this time we've got a gorgeous mood board for you. Be inspired by the beautiful photos, color combo, or if you're like me -- both! 

I wanted to create a fun fall sunset scene, and I invited a whole slew of critters from Jump for JoyForest Feast, and Happy Harvest to the party! I colored them all in with Copic markers, and threw in a few pumpkins and leaves for good measure.


The sunset was created by blending some Distress inks  in yellows and pinks on some Bristol Smooth cardstock, and I add some depth and dimension with the Stitched Tree Border and Stitched Hillside Border, and layered on my elements with liquid glue or foam tape.


All supplies are listed and linked in the description bar below the video. Click on the YouTube icon to watch it there in HD, and don't forget to like and subscribe! Your support sure means a lot.

Right At Home & MISTI Blog Hop


Hey friends! Welcome to the Right at Home/My Sweet Petunia Blog Hop! You should have come here from Stephanie's Blog, but not to worry! If you're just popping in here I'll have the entire list of hop participants down below.

The Right At Home Anemones is a three-step stamp set with so many options! For my card today, I decided to just use the outline images and do a loose watercolor with Distress Inks. The Mini MISTI came in so handy for lining everything up and making sure my stamping lines were nice and bold for heat embossing.


To finish things off, I added a two-part greeting from Fall Sentiments, layered my focal panel on some pretty patterned papers, and scattered a few clear sequins throughout.


I also finished off the inside, but I'll save that for the video. ;) Just click the play button below, or the YouTube icon at the bottom right corner to watch it there in HD. I hope you'll also consider subscribing if you like what you see. :)


You've nearly made it to the end of the hop! All that's left is to head over to My Sweet Petunia where they'll close things out. But be sure to go back to the beginning if you're just getting started! Leave a comment at every stop to be eligible to win one of TWO great prizes: winners choice of an Original or Mini MISTI, and a prize package from Right at Home! The deadline is September 8th at Noon (Central), and the winners will be posted on the Right at Home and My Sweet Petunia blogs on Tuesday September 12th. 

Have an amazing day!

Enjoy the Ride - Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #12


Hey friends! Happy Labor Day! I hope you all are having a great one. Today also marks Lawn Fawnatics 12th Challenge and this round is all about creating scenes -- my favorite!

My beautiful cousin was getting married, so I had to make a fun wedding scene using Bicycle Built for You with the bride and groom colored to look like the happy couple. I also incorporated their wedding colors into the flowers and accessories. Lawn Fawn makes it so easy to personalize!


I used Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables and Zig Zag Rectangle Stackables for my layers and a Stitched Hillside Border for my slope. The gorgeous patterned papers were from the Kaisercraft Wildflower 6x6 and I added a bit of Crystal Stickles as an accent to finish things off.

No video today, since I was lucky enough to have my cousin Ashley come visit from Florida (it was her sister getting married), and she just happens to be a crafty girl too, so we had fun chatting away in my craft room while I created this card. I'll be back with a video and a blog hop tomorrow though, so stay tuned!

Now, please head on over to the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge Blog and check out the other amazing design team samples and create your scene cards to play along! I can't wait to see what you all come up with.

You Make Life Fun - Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #11


Hey friends, I'm back with another Lawn Fawnatics Challenge! This one is near and dear to my heart, because it's all about Cards for Kids. One of my favorite pastimes when my kids were little was to take them to the beach, so I used Life is Good to create my scene. I colored my images with Copic markers and die cut them with the matching dies.

For my sentiment, I used Let's Play, since the font is childlike and whimsical, and stamped it on an Everyday Sentiments Banner. I added in a cloud from Spring Showers to complete my scene.

Aloe Little Friend - Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #10



Howdy, friends! Today we're bringing you Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #10, which is all about creating your own custom sentiment! Lawn Fawn is well known for their amazing sentiments and with so many great sets, it's easy to mix and match. Or you can build your own sentiment with one or two of their alpha sets, like I've done on my card today.


I wanted to do something really punny, and came up with a pretty cute one, I think! I decided that if I was going to go through all the work of spelling out all these words, they were going to be a big, bold focal point. I used Quinn's ABCs for the larger letters and Milo's ABCs for the rest. 

I needed some images to go along with my pun, so I pulled in Stuck On You and borrowed an extra flower pot from Our Friendship Grows. I also used a ton of Lawn Fawn inksand some fun stamping on the inside, which I clearly show in the video. Click on the YouTube icon to watch it there in HD and don't forget to subscribe!



Now please head on over to the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge Blog and check out the other amazing design team samples and link up your custom sentiment creations to play along!

Fairy Magical Day - Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #9



Hey friends! It's time for another Lawn Fawnatics Challenge and this time we've got some beautiful color inspiration for you! I thought these shades would be beautiful in a garden scene, so I pulled out one of my most favorite sets, Fairy Friends.

I colored my images with Copic markers using the inspiration photo as my guide, then paired it with some Echo Park papers and as a last minute addition, threw in a few butterflies from Wild for You. I think they really finished off the scene nicely.


The outside sentiment was stamped in JalapeƱo ink and then I just had to add a bit of Crystal Stickles because all fairies need glitter!


I finished off the inside by stamping a sentiment from Tiny Tags Sayings: Birthday and another fairy in Merman ink but I'll save that for the video. :)
