Lawn Fawnatics May Feature

Hey friends! Today I'm thrilled to be featured over on the Lawn Fawnatics Blog with a cute card for our Spectacular Skies Challenge. As soon as I saw the new On the Beach set I knew I had to create a polar bear on vacation card. Even they deserve a trip to the tropics every once in a while!

I'll have all the details plus more photos over there, so please head over and check it out. If you'd like to see how this card came together, click below! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Christy Gets Crafty with My Favorite Things - May

Hey everyone! I'm so excited to bring you the May edition of Christy Gets Crafty with My Favorite Things! This month I was so inspired by the cuties of Kangaroo Crew. Aren't they just adorable? And I knew I wanted to make a birthday card, so I combined it with a few accessory images from Birdie Brown's Birth-Yay.

I colored my images with Copics and trimmed them out with the matching dies. Then I created a background scene for them with an A2 Rectangle Frames panel and some Distress ink with the Cloud and Drifts & Hills Stencils.

I replaced the outside edge of the frame with Peach Bellini Cardstock to match my card base, and popped that whole panel up with foam tape. Then I layered it on top of a pretty plaid patterned paper from the Sweet Celebrations Paper Pack.

I had so much fun creating this card! If you'd like to see how it came together click below or visit the My Favorite Things YouTube Channel. And please don't forget to like and comment and let them know how I did! Thanks so much for watching. Have a great day!

Butterfly Skies - Lawn Fawnatics #53

Hey there, welcome to Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #53: Spectacular Skies! If you love creating cool scene cards with sky backgrounds, this is the challenge for you! I decided to showcase Butterfly Kisses  on today's card, since I can't think of anything much cooler than a sky swarmed with butterflies!

I decided to give my Copics a rest, and instead pulled out my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens, which I haven't used in a while. I think I fell back in love! The colors are so vibrant and pretty with so little effort! I watercolored my images, let them dry, then trimmed them out with the matching dies.

Sometimes the simplest backgrounds are the most effective, because they really allow the images to shine. I did a watercolor wash with more Zigs on a Stitched Journaling Card and adhered my images with a combination of foam tape and Glue Tube. Then I finished it up by popping it up over some pretty patterned paper.

New Puppy to Love - Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #52

Hey friends! Welcome to Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #52! This round is all about Pet Love, which could not have come at a more perfect time, since I just got a brand new puppy! We'd been so sad since the passing of our beloved Zadie the week before Christmas, and we decided we were finally ready to open our hearts to a new little fur baby to love!

Meet Gemma! She's an 8 week old Australian Shepherd, and she is such a little love bug! So far she's a total mama's girl, and I could not be more pleased. There's nothing sweeter than snuggling with a little fur ball with puppy breath blowing in your face! Lol! But seriously, she's already stolen our hearts and we couldn't love her more.

And yes, she has her own instagram, so if you love adorable puppy pics, feel free to follow. But now, back to today's card. I knew the star had to be the puppy from Bicycle Built for You, which I colored to look like Gemma. To give it more of that element of surprise, I decided to have her jumping out of a box from Holiday Helpers. And I also used images from Critters in the Dog Park to create my own patterned paper for the background. 

I colored everything with Copics and added my focal images on a Stitched Circle Stackables layered onto a Fancy Scalloped Circle Stackables. I  trimmed down my background with an Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables and added a sentiment from Rub-a-Dub-Dub on an Everyday Sentiment Banner
