Christy’s Toucan Do It Inspiration!

Our Little Things challenge will be open until Sunday July 4th at 11:59PM ET. Let’s get that Challenge 103 gallery filled with cute little things! We can’t wait to see what you create!

Hey friends, it’s Christy here with another card for our Little Things Challenge. I could not resist playing with the brand new Toucan Do It stamp set, so I focused on the smaller toucans and other images. I colored them all with Copic markers in a rainbow palette and trimmed them out with the matching dies.

I love using patterned paper for quick and easy backgrounds, and the new Watercolor Wishes Rainbow 6×6 pad is perfect for that! I chose an ombré blue for my focal panel and die cut that with the Small Stitched Circle Stackables. Then I chose a rainbow polka dot print to match my coloring and cut that down with the Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables. I adhered the polka dot print to my Mermaid card base and popped the blue ombré circle up with foam tape.

I adhered my images and finished the card with an Everyday Sentiment Banner stamped in Blue Jay ink, and a tiny touch of Star Dust Stickles. I also did some stamping on the inside, which you can check out in the video tutorial on my YouTube channel, Christy Gets Crafty!

I definitely think that smaller images deserve to be the stars of the show on occasion, which is what makes this challenge so fun! You still have time to enter. We can’t wait to see what you create!

Thank you so much, Christy! This is amazing inspiration!

Have a great weekend! Happy crafting!

Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 103 -Little Things

It’s new challenge time again! For this challenge little things will be the stars of your project! Check out the sets in your stash, stamp or dies, and make the small images the focus of your design!

We invite you to share your creativity by linking up your crafty projects at the end of this post! Your project should feature Lawn Fawn stamps, dies and papers. This challenge will run for 2 weeks and be open until Sunday, July 4th at 11:59PM ET.

For each challenge, we will randomly select an entry to receive a $25.00 gift certificate to the Lawn Fawn shop! We will also be highlighting a few of your fabulous projects at the close of each challenge! By linking your projects to our challenges you will give permission for us to post your work to this blog and our social media sites. Check out the How to Play page for a few guidelines to play along. We want this to be FUN so we’ll keep the rules to just a few!

Let’s see how our amazing Design Team was inspired by this new theme!

Franci combined lots of the cute little things in Ocean Shell-fie and Mermaid for You to create this happy design!

Caly used the little things from A Bug Deal to create a colorful shaker card! She used the negative of the Giant Sending Big Hugs die to make the shaker window and backed it with Really Rainbow paper!

The adorable Bubbles of Joy mice are the little things in Christy‘s sweet card design! Those bubbles are amazing!

Jessica cleverly used Peas on Earth as her “little things”! It’s never too early to start making holiday cards and you probably have lots of Lawn Fawn sets with just the right little images!

Joyce had a similar idea to Caly’s! Great, creative minds thinking alike! The industrious ants from Crazy Antics look adorable scurrying across the Giant Sending Big Hugs die cut!

Karin‘s cheery card features Car Critters and Village Heroes! Her beautiful clean and simple design has just a hint of inking in the background to ground the images.

I love this clever card by Samantha! The Tiny Fairy Tale characters are great for this challenge! And the little sand castle from Life is Good is sized perfectly for a little fairy kingdom! Samantha used a Stitched Scalloped Square Frame and the long cloud from Unicorn Picnic to add magic to her design!

Samantha M. created a perfectly punny custom greeting to go with all her little things with shells! She combined Fintastic Friends, You Are Sublime and Ocean Shell-fie with the Stitched Wave Borders to make an underwater scene! She stenciled bubbles in the background and stamped lots tiny fish from Mermaid for You as well!

Jessica wasn’t the only team member looking ahead to some holiday fun! Jenn’s jack o’lantern is made with Outside In Stitched Pumpkin. She filled the background with fun little things from Plan on It: Holidays and more of our Halloween sets!

We will share Design Team inspiration for you over the next 2 weeks and we’ll announce our Featured Fawnatics and random winner for Challenge 102 – All Things Ocean tomorrow!
