Stirring Up Holiday Critter Fun in the Kitchen with Jess!

We hope you are having fun with the Happy Holiday Critters challenge! It will be open for 2 more weeks so you have plenty of time to get crafty with your critter sets and play along!

Good morning! Jess here with a card for our current Holiday Critters challenge! This is such a fun way to focus on all the adorable critters Lawn Fawn has to offer!

To start I blended Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink over the Brick stencil onto a panel of Strathmore Bristol smooth cardstock focusing the color on the top right of each brick to give it a little color. I wanted the effect of white subway tiles in my kitchen scene! Next I used Copic markers to sketch a granite countertop and adhered it to the brick background panel.

Then I stamped a bunch of images from A Creature was Stirring, Baked with Love, and Sprinkled with Joy using Copic-friendly Jet Black ink and then colored them with Copic markers. I die-cut them with the coordinating dies and added a few accents with a white gel pen.

I arranged all the images onto my kitchen scene and adhered them with a mix of regular adhesive and foam mounting tape for a little extra dimension. Then I die-cut the Mini String of Lights from white cardstock and silver glitter cardstock. I colored the light bulbs with Copic markers and then adhered them to the silver light strand. I adhered them to the scene and then added a sentiment from A Creature was Stirring heat-embossed on black cardstock. Once everything was adhered I added a little glitter to the lights and coated them with Nuvo crystal glaze for shine. Finally I finished the card by adding a little grit paste to the spoons and scene for a little messy frosting! 😉

And that’s it! You have two more weeks to get crafty and I can’t wait to see what you’ll create! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic weekend!

Caly’s Happy Car Critters Holiday Card!

Hi Friends! It’s Caly and I’m so happy you can join me today for a Happy Holiday Critters card for Challenge #89! Lawn Fawn has such adorable critters and the holiday critters have that added charm that gets me every winter! Today, I’m using the Car Critters Christmas Add-On set to make my holiday card festive.

I began by stamping my background panel with the Over the Mountain Borders. For the rest of the images (Car Critters, Car Critters Christmas Add-On and Winter Skies trees) I stamped on another piece of white cardstock knowing I would die-cut to adhere them to the background panel. I colored everything with Copic markers and added white gel highlights to them using my Sakura Gelly Roll Pen.

Copic markers:
Reds: R30, R22, R24, R29
Yellows: Y11, Y15
Greens: G21, G24, G28, G29
Blues: B0000, B000, B000, B01, B02
Browns: E000, E51, E30, E33, E35, E37
Grays: [W00, W1, W3, W5], [C0, C2, C4, C6]

Next, I used the Road Border die to die-cut my road in black. I rotated it to fit the curve of the mountain background so I didn’t have to trim it where the road meets the mountain border. Then using the Y15 Copic marker, I added the yellow to brighten the dash marks with color.

To finish, I attached my images with foam adhesive to give everything lots of dimension. I love this holiday scene and I hope you do too!

Happy Holiday Critters challenge runs 3 weeks through December 6th at 11:59pm PST, so I hope that’s plenty of time for you to play along! Have a blessed day!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
