Dandy Day and a Bit of Twine with Christy!

Hey crafty friends, It’s Christy! Today I’ve got a fun card for our Bring It Back Challenge using the brand-new Dandy Day stamp set.

I colored these cutie pie mice with Copic markers and trimmed them out with the matching dies. Then I cut down my focal panel with an angle on the bottom edge and layered on a grassy border and adhered the images to create a sweet scene. I stamped some of the dandelion seeds directly onto the panel to give it some movement and stamped the sentiment on the grassy border with Noble Fir Ink.

I made my card base from Narwhal Cardstock and added a piece of the new Dandy Day patterned paper with the bottom edge trimmed to match the focal panel. Then I popped the focal panel over top with foam tape.

To finish things off, I stamped another dandelion and some seeds in the bottom right corner with Hippo Ink, and tied on a Lemon Lawn Trimmings bow. I love Lawn Fawn twine, but I hadn’t used it in a while, so I was happy to bring it back!

If you’d like to see how this card came together, I have a video tutorial on my YouTube Channel, Christy Gets Crafty! And you still have time to play along in our Bring It Back Challenge! We can’t wait to see what you create!

Thank you so much for sharing with us today, Christy!

Bringing Back Scrapbook Layouts with Samantha!

Samantha Mann decided to bring back scrapbooking for the Bring it Back challenge!

Samantha’s fun layout is definitely in her signature style! She started with a pretty wash of watercolor in shades of blue and turquoise, then she stamped clouds and hearts from Plane and Simple!

To frame her happy memory she used various papers from Lawn Fawn 6×6 paper pads. And she included a black and white stripe element too!

Samantha also brought back ribbon, in the form of yellow “sunrays” surrounding her photo! Totally clever idea!

We can’t wait to see what you “bring back” for our Bring it Back challenge! Click HERE for all the details and to share your entry!

Happy Crafting! Hope you are having fun searching through your crafty stash for something fun to feature!


Jessica’s Dandy Day Inspiration!

Good morning! Jess here with a card for our current Bring It Back challenge! I love the new Dandy Day set and thought it would be perfect to pair it with a little flocking powder!

To start I blended tumbled glass, salty ocean, twisted citron, and bundled sage distress oxide inks onto a panel of white cardstock. I splattered the panel with water and salty ocean and bundled sage ink and let it dry. Next I stamped lots of images from Dandy Day with Versafine and heat-embossed them with clear embossing powder. I colored them with Copic markers and then die-cut them with the coordinating dies.

Next I stamped the sentiment and dandelion seeds onto the blended panel with Versafine and heat-embossed them with clear embossing powder. Then I arranged my flowers and mice onto my scene and started adhering them with a mix of regular adhesive and foam mounting tape. Once everything was adhered I trimmed off any excess hanging off the edges. Next I applied a thin layer of crystal glaze to all of the dandelion puffballs and seeds. I sprinkled them with a tiny pinch of Chunky and a Prisma glitter and then filled all the rest of the glaze with white flocking powder. I used a finger to lightly press everything into the crystal glaze, let it dry completely, and then carefully brushed off the excess glitter and flocking powder. I love the subtle sparkle and texture it gives to the dandelions! And the crystal glaze is GREAT at really holding everything in place so it doesn’t flake off!

And that’s it! You have one more week to get crafty for the Bring it Back challenge and I can’t wait to see what you’ll create! Thanks so much for stopping by and have an amazing weekend!


Have a happy, crafty weekend!
