Art Journal with Me #5 - Don't Forget to Fly


Hello my friends! Today I'm so happy to bring you another installment in my Art Journal with Me Series! So far this marks my 5th spread, one for each month of 2022. That schedule seems to work perfectly for me, so I can focus on cards for the majority of the time, but let loose and try something fun and new every once in a while. For my May spread in my Art Journal, I wanted to showcase some papers from the Stamperia Flower Alphabet 12x12 pad. I chose a bird theme, since the birds have been singing up a storm in my backyard lately and it just makes me so happy!


I also included some different washi tapesstickers, vintage papers, and bits of ephemera, and sealed them in with a coat of clear gesso. I added texture by applying embossing paste through a stencil, and used Iridescent Gelatos to bring in some extra color. And of course, I couldn't finish off a page without a title using Tim Holtz Ideology Small Talk Stickers.


For a full list of supplies and links, check the description bar below the video on YouTube. I hope you'll come hang out with me, grab your supplies and create a page or a card or whatever it is that you love to do. We'll have a good time chatting and making something beautiful together.

Oh Baby Card Duo - Hello Bluebird New Release Preview Day 2


Hello friends, it's Day 2 of previews for the Hello Bluebird New Release on 5/21. Today I'm showcasing the Little Star stamps, and Starry Sky and Oh Baby Words dies. I created two cards, a boy version and a girl version. Which one is your favorite? For both, I colored the images with Copics and trimmed them out with the matching dies.


The backgrounds were created by blending Distress Oxide Inks onto Bristol Smooth Surface Cardstock. For the boy version I used Tumbled GlassSalvaged Patina, and Stormy Sky, and for the girl version I used Saltwater TaffyKitsch Flamingo, and Picked Raspberry. Then I splattered those with Liquid Stardust. I die cut the Starry Sky and adhered the panels to Sticky Note card bases. I adhered the images and die cut sentiments and finished with some Stardust Stickles.

Christy Gets Crafty with My Favorite Things - May


Hey friends, welcome to the May edition of Christy Gets Crafty with My Favorite Things! Today I've got a super cute masculine card for you. I made this one for my hubby's birthday using the new Stacey Yacula Backyard BBQ stamp set. I colored the images with Copics and trimmed them out with the matching dies. Then I die cut the Picnic in the Park Die-namics out of Kraft Cardstock and the table cloth out of Black and White Plaid 6x6 patterned paper.


For the background, I blended Distress Oxide Inks onto a piece of Bristol Smooth Surface Cardstock using the Drifts & Hills Stencil for the grass, and the Cloud Stencil for the sky. I stamped a sentiment at the top and trimmed it down with an A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 2. I popped that up with foam tape over another piece of the patterned paper and adhered my images to complete the scene.

Birdhouse Card - Lawn Fawnatics #125


Hello friends, welcome to another Lawn Fawnatics Challenge! This one is a new one for me. I've never attempted a dies only card, but there's a first time for everything, am I right? For this one I decided to use the Magic Iris Birdhouse Add-on to create a sweet Springtime scene.


For this one, I used a whole bunch of different colored cardstock. The card base is Moonstone, and the Spring Showers clouds and roof are Woodgrain White, with a drop shadow of Narwhal on the roof. For the vines I used Cilantro and Noble Fir. The flowers are Sticky Note and MFT Grapecicle, the birdhouse MFT Sno Cone.


I created a nest inside the house using Kraft and Ground Coffee. The birds were cut out of Moonstone with Blue Jay for their wings and Black Licorice for the eyes. To finish it off, I added a Scripty Hello sentiment.


To see how I completed the inside without stamps, you'll have to check out the video tutorial! Hit the thumbs up if you enjoy it, and subscribe for new videos every Monday and Friday!

There for Me Card


Hey friends, welcome back! Today I've got a sweet card to share using the Mama Elephant You Raise Me Up stamp set. I stamped the images in Lawn Fawn Jet Black Ink on Spectrum Noir Premium White Cardstock and colored them with my Copic markers to match some patterned paper from the Simple Stories Boho Baby 6x8. Then I trimmed them out with the matching dies.


For the focal panel, I cut down a piece of Bristol with the Lawn Fawn Mini Slimline Stackables and blended on Distress Inks with the MFT Drifts & Hills Stencil. I used Stormy Sky and Tumbled Glass for the sky and Bundled Sage for the grass. Then I layered that over the patterned paper, which I die cut using the same Mini Slimline set, plus the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables, and Stitched Scalloped Borders.

Galaxy Belated Birthday - Lawn Fawnatics #124


Hey friends, I'm back with another Lawn Fawnatics Challenge! This round we're creating masculine cards with an inspiration color palette. The brown in that palette wasn't really working for me, so I replaced it with the green from our watermark at the bottom. Absolutely make these challenges work for you! I combined images from Year Eleven and Out of this World and colored them with Copic markers.


For my galaxy background, I blended Distress Inks on a panel of Bristol Smooth Surface Cardstock. I used Twisted CitronSalvaged PatinaPeacock Feathers, and Blueprint Sketch, then darkened up the edges with Black Soot. I added some splatters of Liquid Stardust and Dr. Ph Martin's Bleedproof White for the stars. Once that panel was dry, I trimmed it down with an Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables.


I mounted the panel onto a Black Licorice card base, and also White Heat Embossed my sentiment and trimmed that down into strips. I added that and all the images except the stars with foam tape and finished the card off with a bit of Stardust Stickles.

Sending Sunshine - Lawn Fawnatics #123


Hey friends, it's time for another Lawn Fawnatics Challenge, and this time we're asking you to Create a Scene! Scene cards are some of my most favorite to make, so this one is right up my alley. I couldn't resist squeaking in one more Easter card, so I used the bunny from Scootin' By to be my Easter bunny, tiptoeing around as he hides his Easter eggs. I combined him with the Window Scene: Spring and an extra egg from Holiday Party Animal. I colored everything with Copic markers and trimmed them out with the matching dies, using the Window Scene: Winter dies for the focal panel and scalloped border.

Then I took a bunch of colorful pastel floral prints from the Flower Market 6x6 and cut them into strops. I layered those onto a Speckled Eggshell card base in a diagonal pattern. I popped the focal panel up with foam tape and added my images and an Everyday Sentiment Banner. I finished the card with a bit of Clear Glaze Pen and some Stardust Stickles.

Art Journal with Me #4 - Live Gently Upon this Earth


Hello friends! Today I'm bringing you my April Art Journal spread. This month I tried something new, using a paper napkin as my focal point, adhering it to the page with clear gesso, I then added layers of patterned papers from the Stamperia Hortensia 8x8 pad, scripty washi tapetickets and ephemera, then pulled it all together with white gesso.


To pull focus to the center, I added some Iridescent Gelatos around the edges to create a bit of a frame and pull in the colors from the florals. I finished with some Tim Holtz Small Talk Stickers for my title, some gel pen details, and a retro date stamp in Ranger Archival Ink.


To see how this spread came together, you can click below or watch on YouTube. If you enjoy it, be sure to like the video and subscribe to my channel! I can't wait to get started on my art journaling spread for May!
