It’s time to use all those Lawn Fawn critters in festive holiday designs! Link up your entry photos HERE! Your project should feature Lawn Fawn stamps, dies, stencils and papers and follow the challenge theme. This challenge will be open until Sunday, December 4 at 11:59PM ET.

Samantha has some adorable ocean critter inspiration for us today!

I love making Holiday cards, especially cards with holiday critters! For this card, I used the Christmas Fishes, Furry and Bright and Ho-Ho-Holidays images to create this fun under water Christmas Eve scene!

I colored all of the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brushes and then used the coordinating
dies to die cut them out! I added some details with a white gel pen, and also some chunky glitter
to add to the festiveness!

For the background, I started by ink blending with Blueprint Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon, Peacock
Feathers and Salvaged Patina. Then I used the same colors but added it to the same areas with
a paintbrush and some water. Once that was dry, I did more ink blending with the same colors. That process adds to the extra saturation and boldness of the colors! Love it!

The sentiment was heat embossed in white onto Black Licorice Cardstock and then die cut out
with the Fancy Wavy Banners.

Thank you for inspiring us today, Samantha!


Happy crafting! We can’t wait to see your critter creativity!
