Happy Bee-Day Card

 


Hello friends, happy Monday! Today I've got a honey of a card for you (lol) featuring the Hello Bluebird Bee Happy stamp set. I love these sweet little bees, so I decided to feature them on some honeycomb. I colored them with Copic markers and trimmed them out with the matching dies.


For the honeycomb, I started by blending Distress Inks in Squeezed LemonadeMustard Seed, and Fossilized Amber onto a piece of Bristol Smooth Surface cardstock. Then I die cut a second piece with the Sunny Studio Frilly Frames Hexagon dies, and colored that one with only Fossilized Amber to create some contrast. I popped the frame and the bees up with foam tape, added a Lawn Fawn Everyday Sentiments Banner, and finished off the card with some Sparkling Clear Sequins and Stardust Stickles.

Anne of Green Gables Card


Hello friends! I'm super excited to bring you today's card, because it depicts my favorite literary heroine of all time, Anne of Green Gables! I created this one using several Hello Bluebird stamp sets, starting with the Country Roads Background. I colored the house to look like Green Gables and the girl from Picked for You to be Anne. Then I added in a few accessories like the books and mouse from Tabitha and some leaves from Pumpkin Time


I colored everything with Copic markers and trimmed them out with the matching dies. Then I trimmed down the background panel with the Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables and stamped the sentiment from Pumpkin Time that is a quote from the author of Anne of Green Gables, L. M. Montgomery. I adhered the panel to a Noble Fir Cardbase and finished off the card with a little Stardust Stickles.

I stamped everything with Jet Black ink, colored them with Copic markers, and trimmed them out with the matching dies.

A Sweet Somebunny Card


Hello there! Today I've got a super sweet card to take you into the weekend. This one stars the A Very Sweet Somebunny set by Rachelle Anne Miller for MFT. Aren't these critters darling? I stamped them in Extreme Black Hybrid Ink, and colored with Copic markers, then trimmed them out with the matching dies.


For my background, I wanted to feature one of the larger prints from the Simple Stories Bunnies + Blooms 6x8 pad, so I die cut the rainbow on the offset with the Lawn Fawn Cross-Stitched Square Stackables and added a little Noble Fir hill with a Simple Stitched Hillside Border and stamped my sentiment on that. I added my images and popped up the focal panel with foam tape over a few more layers of that patterned paper, trimming them down with the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables and the Stitched Scalloped Borders. Then I finished off the card with just a touch of Stardust Stickles

Christy Gets Crafty with My Favorite Things - April


Hey friends! Today I'm so happy to bring you the April edition of Christy Gets Crafty with My Favorite Things! This month my card features the sweet Sprinkling You with Love stamp set. Isn't it darling? I stamped all my images in Extreme Black Hybrid Ink and colored them with Copic Markers, then trimmed them out with the matching dies.


For the background, I took a piece of Bristol Smooth Surface Cardstock and die cut it with the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 2 and blended on some Distress Oxide Inks to look like the sky just before a storm. Then I heat embossed the sentiment and the raindrops in liquid platinum embossing powder.

Garden Friends Card - Lawn Fawnatics #99


Hey friends! Today we've got another fun Lawn Fawnatics Challenge! Our theme this round is one of my absolute favorites: Create a Scene! I love scene cards so much. It's a great chance to pull together images from different sets and tell a little story. For instance, the friends on my card today are starting a community garden. They've all come together and brought their own packet of seeds that they can plant and enjoy for weeks to come. 


I used images from Some BunnyJump for Joy, and Crazy Antics. I altered a chips bag for my seed packet by erasing the word from the center with my Stamp Shammy before stamping, and then filling it in with either a flower or the word "seeds" with a Momento Tuxedo Black Marker. I colored everything with Copics, and trimmed them out with the matching dies.


For the focal panel, I die cut a piece of Mermaid Cardstock with the Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables for my sky, then layered on a Noble Fir Grassy Border, and a Cilantro Simple Stitched Hillside Border, where I stamped my sentiment in Noble Fir Ink. I added my images and popped up the panel with foam tape over some Spring Fling 6x6 patterned paper. I finished off the card with a bit of Stardust Stickles.

Home Sweet Home Card - Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #98


Hey friends, welcome to another Lawn Fawnatics Challenge! This is a fun one because it is all about spring! I chose to take the pretty color palette as my inspiration to create a fun Spring scene celebrating my brother and his girlfriend's recent purchase of their first home together. I combined Tiny Friends and Happy Village to depict them and their dog standing outside on the front lawn of the new house. I colored the images with Copic markers and trimmed them out with the matching dies.


For the focal panel, I started with Mermaid Cardstock cut with a Large Stitched Circle Stackable, and layered on a Noble Fir Stitched Hillside Border and a Cilantro Simple Stitched Hillside Border. I backed the focal panel with some patterned paper from the Hello Sunshine Remix 6x6 pad die cut with a Scalloped Circle Stackable.


On my Ballet Slippers card base, I layered a piece of Perfectly Plaid Remix paper, trimmed out with the Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables, and added the blue print from Hello Sunshine across the center. Then I popped my focal panel up with Foam Tape, adhered my images, and finished with a little (but not too much since its also for my brother!) Stardust Stickles.

My Copic Favorites: Jungle & Safari Critters Part 1


Hey friends, welcome back! Today I've got another installment in my Copic Favorites Series, where I share my favorite color combos for different kinds of images. This time I'm doing Jungle and Safari Critters, using the Avery Elle stamp set, A Head Above. I will have all the color combos shown in the video tutorial, so check that out if you're interested in what my personal favorites are. After I colored the images, I trimmed them out with the matching dies.


To assemble the card, I die cut some Simple Stories Birthday Blast 6x8 patterned paper with the Sunny Studio Slimline Scalloped Frame and Slimline Basic Borders. I die cut some white cardstock with the scalloped frame and mounted it all to a Lawn Fawn Blue Jay slimline card base. Then I adhered my images with liquid glue, and finished it off with a Speech Bubbles sentiment and a bit of Stardust Stickles.

Birthday Balloon Ride Card

 


Hey friends! Happy Friday. Today I'm excited to share a colorful card featuring Sunny Studio Balloon Rides. This set is so fun to use because there's lots of different critters to swap out of the basket and a whole bunch of sentiments in different themes. I chose the koala, because I love his sweet little face. I colored all the images with Copic markers and trimmed them out with the matching dies.


For the background, I took a sheet of patterned paper from the Classic Sunburst 6x6 pack, and trimmed that down with the Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables. Then I used the Lawn Fawn Puffy Cloud Borders to cut down some Noble Fir Cardstock for distant bushes and trees, and some Cilantro Cardstock with the Simple Stitched Hillside Borders for the grass. I borrowed a sentiment from Party Pups, since I needed a birthday card, and stamped that in Noble Fir Ink.


To pull in my rainbow color palette, I trimmed down some patterned paper from the Simple Stories Surprise Party 6x6 with the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables. Then I popped up my focal panel with foam tape and adhered my images with liquid glue, and finished off with a little Stardust Stickles.
